July 2021: Creative Tension

discover the keys to unlock excitement and get rid of tension


Overall:

What I wrote in the 2021 annual forecast holds true: July begins fraught with tension and angst. No worries as it softens up throughout the month. Let out a breath or better yet, take a vacation to come back refreshed and invigorated. This can be a creative, new and exciting time, but requires nimbleness and knowing. Unfortunately, neither may be accessible for you right now. Make friends with the unknown as it offers unlimited possibilities.

I’m going LIVE in our free FB group on Thursday, July 1st at 10:30 am ET.  Join us by clicking here.

I present the information differently in the lives to give you another way to access the stars.

My advice: I would do both at the top of month, especially now at the apex of the year. You’re positioning how 2022 will go for you.

Big Star Events:

  • 7/1, 7/4, 7/29 Mars oppositions and squares
  • 7/5 T-square Venus, Saturn, Uranus
  • 7/28 Jupiter ingres Aquarius

Week 1: Break-through Tension

July begins with frustration, limits and barriers You’re disappointed as everyone and everything seems to be in your way. You feel inadequate, weak and unattractive. This is slow-moving, so take your time and gather yourself. Express yourself and let your feelings be heard. Either that or work-out and get rid of the suppressed anger.What’s the good news?

You can make adjustments in how you’re approaching your goals, relationships and desires. You can rebel against constraints, erupting conflict and trying to force things OR you can take a step back and realize new ways.

You want freedom and you want it now. People confuse you, say things that don’t make sense or argue with you – just because. The question is: what do you want to do about it?

If it actually matters to you, think about what you want and take the results-oriented approach. This is NOT the time to be right. It’s the time to welcome the new and unexpected.

Get creative. Think out of the box. Act differently. Say YES to an opportunity that stretches you to move toward your future. That is supported right now. Falling back or into old patterns isn’t.

Make a plan and stick to it. Keep your eye on the prize – that’s you, your goals and the love you have in your life. It’s also your value and your finances. If you feel isolated and alone, take advantage of the solitude to make investments into your growth.

New Moon: What do you REALLY want?

Details: July 9 New Moon 18°Cancer @ 9:17 pm ET

This New Moon in Cancer is somewhat overridden by the tension of the past and future and how you feel about both with respect to your relationships. Are your relationships supportive of your growth or are they in conflict? The better question: are you supportive of your own growth or are you internally conflicted? Are you asking for support, letting your loved ones know you’re growing, but love them too? Are you being honest with yourself and others? Do your choices reflect your wishes and dreams?

The stars are being intentionally confusing to help you be passionate, open hearted and constructive, even when you feel aggressive and tense. How will you use this time of strife to radically choose yourself? Are you brave enough to know, like and trust yourself fully? Will you invest your time, effort and resource to live the life you are born to live?

This Moon asks all of you.

You can definitely find new solutions using your intuition, curiosity and insight. This can actually be very positive.

How will you answer her call?

Week 2: Feelings of Relief

The tense New Moon stresses all of your relationships and finances. It feels lonely and even sad. The stars conspire to hold you alone and afraid to give you an excuse to break free and then they love you enough to allow relief to come flooding in after a few days.

Your mind aligns with your feelings and gives you momentum to drop into your heart. Your thoughts turn toward optimism and good tidings. You feel sunny and filled with good cheer. This is the calm after the storm and such blessed relief. Revel in it. Bask in the glory of wanting to spend time with others, be social and share all of yourself with them.

By the end of the 2nd week, it’s a sexy, romantic and tender time. Although it’s mid-work week, who cares? Celebrate. Make a mid-week date with friends or a loved one. Take advantage of the sweetness.

Our team has our monthly magical night date and I’m teaching the Tarot. I can’t wait. Make plans for yourself to enjoy as this magical energy abounds.

Week 3: The New or Crisis?

The 3rd week begins in harmony filled with creative and artistic pursuits and is an excellent time to be visible and shine your brilliance. Your image is at an all-time high. It’s also supportive of good health, social and environmental justice.

Yet crisis is building. Events beyond your control or manipulative people invade your energy. Stand in your own power. Let go of control. Recognize change reigns to create the honest version of yourself. Change is either uncomfortable and scary or it’s compelling and invigorating. You decide. Let whatever doesn’t fit be stripped away. It’s going to happen anyway. Welcome it.

When things fall away, it makes room for the new. New friends, interesting people, exciting news; different point of view, solving problems.

Week 4: Glimpses of Growth

The 4th week starts with a Happy Birthday shout out to Leo as Venus makes some interesting choices. Your social life gets busy and you want to take vacation or the easy way out of work. Be carefree and play on your own time if you have it. Otherwise, be mindful of making mistakes as your attention is elsewhere.

Full Moon: Opposites – Too much or just right?

Details: 7/23 Full Moon Leo & Aquarius 1° @ 10:37 pm ET

The Full Moon forces are unusually opposing at this time. The one-degree makes them more forceful, but there are other energies at play contributing to the stretched feeling. The oppositions under review are:

  • Good – bad.
  • Relax – work.
  • Thoughts – feelings.
  • Easy – hard.
  • You – other.

Making adjustments to accommodate both of these opposing energies is the gift of this Full Moon. How can you work hard and take it easy? When will you align your mind and heart?  What will you invite ease as you make strides?

This tension of the opposing forces is too much if you take one over the other. When you blend them, they become almost too much and this the difference between success and not quite reaching your definition of satisfying success.

As the last week of July continues, you feel imaginative and dreamy. There’s a softness in the energy, helping you communicate better when you let go of control. You can be influential instead of controlling. Psst…doing so gives you much better results anyway.

You’ll know you’re holding on too tightly if you feel pressured and conflicted. The worst version of this is to invite power plays, intimidation and threats. Take a breath, step away and look deeper at what’s prompting these forces. When you’re nakedly honest with yourself, you find hidden treasure. The truth lies beneath the surface. You lie beneath the surface. Aren’t you worth the plunge?

I think you are, do you?

Fun, playful influences come to you at the end of the month. You feel exuberant to have survived all of the tension and stress during the last few weeks. It’s like a relief valve lets out all of the pressure and you want to stand up and shout. So do it.

Let’s shout hooray together.

HOORAY!

Now, let’s get back to it. Good luck awaits as long as you don’t get carried away. Don’t overpromise, overextend or over-exaggerate. Stay in your lane, get rooted and growth comes easily and expansively.

You feel confident and capable of what’s to come. Welcome August with renewed motivation and focus.

Bottom Line: Get creative or be tense

July presents opportunities or loss. It brings tension or creativity. The month is filled with hostility, aggression and relationship stress or it welcomes new ideas, interesting friendships and lots of possibility. Your future is now. Are you actively choosing it or holding onto the past?  Your answer lies in how the month feels for you. Make a note to revisit this part of the post at the end of the month. As I say, “Knowing it and living it are two different things.”

How have you lived the month of July? You get a glimpse of how next year will be for you with your response to this month’s energies.

How to use this forecast: I’ve abbreviated the writing of my monthly forecasts while enhancing their practical uses. Here are my recommendations.

Quickly at the start of each month:

  1. Peruse the forecast to see what jumps out at you and make a note of the date(s) on your calendar.
  2. Go through the weekly themes and compare it to what’s on your own schedule. Make slight adjustments if there are particularly startling events on days you have major plans.
  3. Look over the business tips for the two parts of the month and see what activities to incorporate for you and your staff or clients based on the energies.
  4. Find intuitive tools and practical tips to incorporate into your month.

Each week:

  1. Look over the weekly themes and drill down on those jiving with what you have going on in your week.
  2. Include a different, lighter or deeper approach depending upon the weekly theme.
  3. For each lunar cycle, use the natural power of the Moon to ramp up energy for success or to release and overcome obstacles.
  4. At the end of the month, take a quick glance over the month to see what works and what doesn’t to make adjustments for the upcoming one.

May 2021: Mixed Bag

How do you drop into your heart and intuition?  


Overall:

May begins with light and fun energy, so enjoy it. In the middle of the month, things run amuck. You feel distracted and uneasy and it doesn’t get better for the next several weeks. Be super clear in communications and get any technology issues taken care of before the 3rd week when Mercury goes retrograde in his own sign of Gemini. 

Big Star Events:

  •   Mercury out of bounds: 5/7 – 5/30
  • Super New Moon in Taurus: 5/11
  •  Jupiter in Pisces: 5/13
  • Saturn retrograde joins Pluto retrograde: 5/23 – 10/10
  • Venus out of bounds: 5/24
  • Super Moon/Eclipse: 5/26
  • Mars back in bounds: 5/27 (since 3/21)
  • Mercury retrograde: 5/29 – 6/18

Week 1: Uplifting

The first week of May offers a long-overdue break from the aggressive energies of the past few months. Minds are opened, perspectives are widened and connecting with others is easier. The lift you feel provides opportunities for sexy encounters and romantic dates. There’s a brief testing point in the middle of the week, but it’s dovetailed by fascinating and fun situations. The end of the week gives you a zany push that lasts until the end of the month. Stay grounded and operate from your intuition to successfully navigate this influence.  

Week 2: Boundless Easy Fun

Can you take time off this week? If so, do it. It’s an excellent week for fun and connecting with your friends and loved ones. It’s also a sexy and charming time. There is a pause in the middle of the week when you do feel like buckling down and getting things done. Lean into it if you’re spending your week at work. On the 13th, Jupiter moves into Pisces, so it’s kumbaya time! Dreams, healing, creativity, sensuality and intuition are the name of the game for the next few months. 

New Moon: Ideals

DetailsMay 11 New Moon Taurus @ 3:01 pm @ 21°

Get creative, dream and imagine while you have the ability to make it lasting. Think of the intentions you want to set for the next 6 months as you get ready for the ecliptic pair beginning on May 26th. There’s clarity available that will be elusive for a few weeks, so make the most of it. 

Week 3: Unbalanced

There’s an intense energy that urges you to take the long view, do deep research and make moderate plans against the push to be overly optimistic. The Sun enters Gemini to join Mercury and Venus, so your mind goes into overdrive. Your heart is already flirtatious and light, so it’s not a good barometer for keeping you centered and focused on your goals. There’s a slipperiness to the energies this week that contradicts the underlying pull of a longer, lasting tempo. Center, ground, center, ground is the mantra this week. 

Week 4: Confusion

Saturn stations retrograde on the 23rd and Mercury on the 29th and there’s confusing and destabilizing energy all week. In fact, it lasts beyond the end of the month. The only good news is the aggressive influences decrease, but with all of the misinterpretations and sticky situations, I’m not sure you’re going to be able to tell. There is opportunity for creativity at the end of the month and that can give you a little relief. 

Full Moon: Truth

Details: May 26 Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Gem/Sag @7:14 am

TRUTH is the name of the game for the next few weeks. Let’s find out if the world is ready for revealing what’s beneath the surface. I’m hoping so. Gather the reasons for celebrating you and all of your accomplishments and plant the seeds for releasing that which stands in your way. It’s the perfect time to reflect and review in order to renew. 

Bottom Line: True KLT is helpful this month

May is a mixed bag, but the more you drop in your heart and tap into your inner knowing, the month becomes magical. May is for healing and developing your intuitive gifts. 

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Tarot: Five of Cups – Disappointment

At first glance, this appears to be a negative message and yet allowing the opening of opportunity presents an entirely different view. The five is about mastery of being a spiritual being and a human one and cups symbolizes emotions. Ponder your availability for the emotional realm. Do you let yourself live in the moment to set your heart free? Commit without expectations, listen to your heart’s wisdom and be free of attachment.  

Crystal: Aqua Aura Quartz

Aqua Aura quartz allows freedom and enhances other stone’s healing powers. Grab a grounding stone such as black tourmaline, to help dispel negativity and keep your technology and communication paths running smoothly. 

Flower essence: White Chestnut

Bach White Chestnut is perfect to quiet your mind. Take 3 drops 3 times a day in water and feel your mind settle.
