July 2015

July 2015

The special month of July 2015 is ushered in by a beautiful conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, and will end with a rare Blue Moon on July 31, 2015.

The first three days of July 2015 are colored by the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter at 21º into the fire sign of Leo. This conjunction is clearly visible in the western sky when the Sun goes down.
Magical beautiful romantic and creative days!
Anyone who has planets in the birth chart at 21º in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius may look forward to this heartwarming and prosperous energy.
The Full Moon in Capricorn on July 2, 2015 increases the planetary revelry.
Throughout the month Venus will close to Jupiter. Especially the first half of July promises to be the happiest period of this Summer. A happy period to close a commitment for life. But be sure to do so before Venus goes retrograde on July 25, 2015!

Jupiter goes full steam ahead this month in Leo, from 21º to 27º Leo. Because of this fiery power it feels like life is in upward spiral. As of August 12, 2015 Jupiter will make the transition to the earth sign Virgo. The coming year with Jupiter in Virgo will be marked by growth and stability.

It should be a nice, peaceful and prosperous period, but the second half of July 2015 shows a very different picture.
On 15 and July 16, 2015, Mars in Cancer exactly opposites Pluto in Capricorn. This could be an intense day, there might be a kind of crisis. Restraint is therefore required.
From July 13 to July 25, 2015, Mars forms a T-square with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Mars in Leo tackles the retrograde Uranus and ignites once again the simmering conflict between Uranus and Pluto. Because of this, the second half of July 2015 is colored by rebellion, violence, turmoil, unexpected twists and unrest.
Hopefully, the harmonic effect of the retrograde Venus can soften the vehemence of Mars.
Midst of all this planetary turmoil, Mars, Saturn and Chiron will form a Grand Trine in Water. This connection provides in the last week of July 2015 until August 19, 2015 a sense of surrender and trust.
To take life as it is.

In the second half of July 2015 Jupiter in Leo gradually forms a volatile square with retrograde Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn feels secure in the House of Pluto, but is not safe for the vast fiery influence Jupiter in Leo. This interplanetary battle may be the beginning of a period of recession.

The last week of July 2015 shows a restless image. On 25 and July 26, 2015, Mars will be exactly squaring Uranus in Aries. On July 25, 2015 Venus leaves the planetary battlefield and begins her retrograde sleep, followed by Uranus in Aries. Uranus follows her example on July 26, 2015.
Venus goes retrograde on July 25, 2015 at 0º Virgo until September 5, 2015 where she awakes at 14º Leo. A time to evaluate relationships, make new commitments to repair dysfunctional relationships and to find solutions to the thorniest issues.
In the last week of July 2015 the retrograde Venus in Virgo will initially lead to money problems. The belt is tightened and there may be a shortage in food supply. Read more about Venus retrograde in NEWS.

From July 25, 2015 until December 25, 2015 Uranus in Aries will be retrograde. Uranus, the rebel among our planets, retrogrades from 3º to 10º Aries. The retrograde motion reinforces the strong quality of Uranus, namely the Unexpected. During this period, the subcutaneous urge for freedom and self-expression is increasing and this is brought out in a powerful and unexpected way. During this period we have to consider even more drastic changes. If we want change, we must first overcome and change our own fears. Read more about the retrograde Uranus in NEWS.
The retrograde Uranus provides us with variable weather conditions such as sudden storms, high waves and huge fluctuations in temperature.
On 28 and July 29, 2015 the sky treat us with the annual meteor shower Delta from comets Marsden and Kracht in the constellation Aquarius.

As quietly as July 2015 began, so spectacular July 2015 could end.
On July 31, 2015 we have the second Full Moon this month, a special Full Moon in the air sign Aquarius. A Blue Moon occurs only once every two and a half years!

I wish you all a beautiful and warm month of July 2015
