July

Astrological forecast for July 2014.

The month of July 2014 is a warm, constructive and inspiring month. A positive shift takes place when Jupiter leaves the Water sign Cancer for fiery Leo! The fifth zodiac sign Leo symbolizes romance, love of life, children, creativity, fun and self-development. With the advent of Jupiter it would be a great year if we would live life as we would like it to be ! Standing up for your rights and beliefs and propagate this! It is a year to grow and to take educational or spiritual journeys.
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter, the father of the Greek god Zeus stands for abundance, growth, expansion, truth, optimism, philosophy, ideals, religion, wisdom and the deeper meaning of life. Everything connected with Jupiter, is growth. Growth can be mentally, spiritually or materially.
It's different for everyone and whether we are looking for wisdom, money or possessions, which also applies to ideals. In the birth chart can be deduced specific where and how we can develop.
The zodiac signs Leo, Aries, Sagittarius will benefit this summer this energy the most, but also Libra and Gemini are enjoying the soothing warmth. However, the sign of Aquarius is faced with a conflict of energy. The zodiac signs Scorpio and Taurus will not directly feel the positive influence of Jupiter.
The highlight of the Jupiter energy will be on July 24, when the Sun in Leo conjoins Jupiter.
Until August 11, 2015 Jupiter will warm our hearts. This positive energy creates a warming and optimistic note in the difficult economic times in which we find ourselves.
As of June 2013, Jupiter traveled through the sign of Cancer. During this period it has interfered with the planetary heavyweights Mars, Uranus and Pluto. This period of transformation and growth was emotionally very intense and in many lives this has led to an inevitable break with the past. In the year that Jupiter travels through Leo, it will experience twice the exact square between Uranus and Pluto, but the heartwarming energy will be an emollient contribution. A contribution, which may result in huge positive inspirations, creativity and emotional rebirth.
We are in a positive influence which we feel that changes are in the pipeline.
July 2014 is, thanks to the entry of Jupiter in Leo a positive month, but unfortunately it will not always be prosperity and happiness. July 2014 is a month in which existing power structures will degrade further. There will be landslides, not only in nature, but also in economic and social fields. The good relationship between Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio will last until July 16. From the moment that Jupiter enters the sign of Leo on July 17 and Saturn awakens from his retrograde sleep on July 19, the warm handshake between and these two business planets cool down and end in conflict. Economically, things can change dramatically from that moment. Especially on and around 22, 25 and 28 July events may occur that bring our sense of safety in jeopardy.
There will be an increase in social unrest in several European cities and in America. In the Far East, food shortages may occur. The illusion that the global crisis would have passed its peak and that an economic improvement would be on the edge, soon disappears.
Due to Jupiter in Leo we are better resistant to cope with difficult situations and are able to implement necessary reforms. Saturn will be in a direct movement to March 13, 2015. During this period, bills, rules and regulations which are discussed from March 2, are being imported and adapted.
From the moment Saturn awakens on July 19, the long sleep of Uranus, the planet of the unexpected breakthroughs, begins. Uranus travels since March 2011 through fiery Aries, the male principle that wants progress.
From July 22 to December 20, 2014, the time has come to take the "I Am " energy inside to have a closer look at us. What makes us authentic and independent? A huge inward pressure is leading us to an inner war if we are not clear about who we are and what we want, independent of the expectations of others. This particular phase of Uranus is highly charged, because this backward movement will spark the struggle with Pluto in Capricorn again. This energy is extremely explosive, much more explosive than the last Mars retrograde period from 2 March to 20 May 2014. A period of pushing and pulling, bending or cracking. In the world, but also in your personal life, resounds the urge for restructuring, change and freedom. Remain close to yourself and your desires, because it may just be that what you desire will cross your path. Whatever it is that your path will intersect, corresponds to what you desire deep down.
The location of Aries in your birth chart shows where your inner warrior is. The location of Capricorn shows where the revolutionary process of regeneration takes place. With Uranus retrograde there is a resistance to pressure from the outside, such as authority figures telling us what to do. A resistance to oppression and restriction of freedom. Now the way is to the inside where our inner child cries for independence and freedom. Uranus retrograde in Aries awakes our deepest primal feelings. The inner primal scream refuses to give away our power in any form whatsoever. The struggle to live, really live begins at its most authentic form of being.
