The first half of the Year of the Earth Pig is now behind us.
Jupiter in Sagittarius, Pluto and Saturn Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces are in retrograde.
These planetary giants in their own signs is a relatively stable period of reorientation, breakthroughs and wider knowledge in the field of communication, robotics, environmental issues, economy and health care. We are offered the opportunity to break free from the old familiar and to gain understanding and clarity in dark matters or chaos.
After these retrograde periods, a better and clearer perspective will emerge to take the appropriate necessary measures in order to continue our path.
The Eclipses of 2019 largely fall on the axis Cancer/Capricorn and also the North/South Node remains on the axis Cancer/Capricorn this year 2019.
The axis Cancer/Capricorn is about integrating difficult choices and contradictions on a collective level.
On the 2th of July 2019, red Mars enters the fiery kingdom of Leo and will remain there until the 18th of August 2019.
This period is marked by pride, decisiveness, prestige and leadership. During this period, energy is self-conscious with a deep desire for recognition of achievements. Determination and obstinate insistence on maintaining positions to save face.
Mars in Leo and Uranus in Taurus form a square at the beginning of July 2019 and this planetary challenge can lead to tense situations and flexing of muscles in world politics in the first half of July 2019.
In the first half of July 2019, the Sun in Cancer faces retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, forcing us to assess a difficult situation.
On the 2th of July, 2019, the Moon will be between the Earth and the Sun.
This total Solar Eclipse at 10° in the water sign of Cancer offers opportunities for positive change. The ascendant of the United States of America falls on 13º Cancer which means that the next six months can be crucial for the economy of America and President Donald Trump. This total Solar Eclipse can be seen in South America, Chile, Ecuador, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay, Argentina and the South Pacific.

On the 4th of July 4, 2019, Saturn in Capricorn will be opposite the Northern Node in Cancer at 17º on the axis Capricorn/Cancer. This karmic aspect has been topical since the early spring of 2019 and will be until the Autumn of 2020. The key year 2020 symbolizes the end of the old world and the beginning of a new cycle in our evolution.
In the aftermath of the Solar Eclipse of July 2, 2019, this conjunction is even more significant.
In the spring of 2019, Pluto was conjunct the North Node in Capricorn.
The Southern Node reveals everything that is untrue, incorrect and unfair that no longer works in social structures, rules and laws, prejudices, control mechanisms, obligations and responsibilities.
Saturn and Pluto are both retrograde, so themes from March 2019 become topical again.
The influence of retrograde Saturn-Pluto will defuse a little, but the challenges will be just as great due to the opposition of Mars and Mercury and the Northern Node.
We are offered a new opportunity to adjust processes by approaching things differently.
Of course, the old established order will resolutely oppose any proposal because control systems and power structures are being undermined. The influence of Mars conjunct retrograde Mercury in Leo on July 9, 2019 will certainly contribute to this.
The last time of Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn opposite the Southern Node was in 1777, the uprising against the French King of Sun Louis XIV and the American Declaration of Independence.
There are also great karmic similarities of independence at this time, such as the situation in Great Britain (ascendant Capricorn) with the Brexit.
The opposition of Saturn with the North Node in Cancer brings the following message: Give back man's freedom and sovereignty. Encourage people to realize their dreams by not suppressing them, but by encouraging them.
From July 8, 2019 to December 12, 2019, Chiron is retrograde in Aries.
During this retrograde phase of the Wounded Healer, Chiron helps us to release old painful patterns and regain an inner sense of wholeness and self-worth. Retrograde Chiron in Aries brings back old pain to deal with for now and forever.
Both individually and collectively, humanity faces the challenge of consciously listening to our own feelings and our real needs, of our place in the world and society to which we belong.
Working together instead of working against each other.
Awareness of our Self leads to confidence in one's own inner authority to bring about real changes. This would be a big step for humanity!
The winged messenger Mercury goes retrograde every three months.
During this energetic period from July 7, 2019 to July 31, 2019, Mercury retrograde in Leo/Cancer can lead to technological disruptions and delays in the areas of world trade, communication, creative projects in transport and travel. Mercury is retrograde until August 1, 2019, returning to Cancer from July 20, 2019. A period of revision, reconsideration and reorganization from March 2019.
The entire retrograde period of Mercury lasts until the New Moon in Leo on August 1, 2019.
On the 9th of July 2019, retrograde Mercury is conjunct Mars in Leo and square Uranus in Taurus, resulting in technological problems and problems with the electricity grid or technological warfare. A backup of computer data is advisable.
On July 16th, 2019, the shadow of the Earth falls over the Moon.
The partial Lunar Eclipse at 24°04 in Capricorn is powerful and confrontational due to an almost exact conjunction with Pluto. Intense emotional reactions, compulsive behavior and power struggle are quite possible due to the influence of various planetary aspects, the influence of fixed stars and the square with the dwarf planet Eris. Eris is "the little sister" of planet Pluto.
In my opinion, this Lunar Eclipse will further sharpen social relationships, such as "MeToo" and protests against the "establishment". Scandals, intrigues and big names falling from grace lead to lasting changes in the outside and inside world. This Lunar Eclipse will affect the United States of America and President Trump in the next six months.
The Partial Lunar Eclipse is visible in Europe, Africa, southern Asia and Australia, South America and Antarctica.

From July 23, 2019 to August 22, the Sun shines in the energetic and grand royal realm of Leo.
Leo wants to shine, bit us stubborn, clinging and determined once a position has been taken.
Venus follows the Sun in the loud realm of Leo from July 29, 2019, so the end of July 2019 is colored by fiery passion, creativity, tenacity and self-confidence.
In the most fascinating and transforming time that humanity has known, we are on the eve of a new era. The old world is dying and the new world awaits.
Big names from politics, media, ecclesiastical world and economy fall from grace or leave the earthly world to make way for new leadership.
Retrograde Saturn is getting closer to retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.
When Saturn and Pluto are no longer retrograde from October 3, 2019, nothing stands in the way to form a historical conjunction on the 12th of January 2020.
Old and failing structures are increasingly crumbling to make way for new social structures for a new 12-year cycle starting in 2020.
More about this later!
Wishing you all a sparkling month of July!
