discover the keys to unlock excitement and get rid of tension
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 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.
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.
