This is a prominent month for the entire year. It is a midway point between the past eclipse season of April to May, and the upcoming eclipses beginning in October of this year. We have reached the catalyst moment where the new chapter, journey, or story finally starts to physically emerge within our lives. What has culminated for the last 4-12 weeks has settled and anchored in clarity. It is the moment when the ‘shift’ hits the fan. Face to face with our delusions. We have somewhat of a grasp of what we are experiencing. This is a huge release on all levels, especially core wounds and karmic patterns that we’ve been carrying for many lifetimes. We may have one hand holding onto what was, the other into what will be, caught between appeasing the shadows of obedience, force, fear, desperation and victimhood.
A major manifestation to actualization is appearing in front of our eyes. New frequencies, and energies that will shift our entire perspective for the future. The veil has been lifted and old constructs dissolve. The magick may feel gone within all intimate relationships. This would also disband all of its illusions as well. What are you hanging onto? What fears are coming up? It is time to face all fears regarding relationship programs, patterns, and structures. It is time to lift up the rose tinted glasses. We can no longer allow dysfunction and dental to be in charge of our lives. Acceptance, and integration will allow the currents to propel the moment forward. Any, and all resistance will create a static, heavy and chaotic journey.
Mid month there is a huge transition point with a major turning point in life. Disruption strongly anchors in. It is important to give these unexpected energies full attention. There may be emerging tests around social contracts and all types of relationships. The galactic soulmate, and twinflame contracts may experience severe intensity. Our relationships will be going through extreme transmutation, momentous restructuring as our values, wants and needs alter.
Full Moon in Capricorn
On Monday July 3rd 11:38 AM (PST) there will be a full moon in Capricorn. An immensely stabilizing, grounding, practicable lunation. This is just what we need. A reliable, unwavering supportive frequency will allow deep authentic transmutation. It is a big life jacket this month. It would be wise to utilize this time for setting intentions, and scheduling what the road looks like to the heart’s aligned highest goals. Some profound tools during this time would be journaling in a practical way, asking questions like” what does my healing journey look like?” “What is my daily routine to accomplish this?”. Another tool is to calendar and organize this plan. It may feel good to be in movement with nature walks, water play and gathering around a summer night fire.
New Moon in Cancer
On Monday July 17th at 6:31 PM (PST) there will be a new moon in Cancer. Unfinished business is the key phrase for this lunation. These energies will be highlighting what needs to be finished. It is time to examine the recycling currents that are brewing. There may be some power struggles and tension. Thinking outside of the box will be helpful during these struggling forces. A focus on home life may be at the forefront. Some helpful actions would be cleaning, and deep decluttering unused items. Perhaps even working on improvement projects or fixing things around the house. It is important to take care of and tend to the home’s spirit. Cleansing the space with herbs, incense, essential oil spray with deep intentions of gratitude. Once this feels accomplished the new projects, and opportunities will start to bloom fully.
Venus signifies love, relationships, the concept of unions, unifying, reconciling, art, harmony, beauty, social contracts, unwritten rules, things that are tasteful and distasteful. Venus is how we love, give and receive affection.
Venus's orbital cycle is about 12 months, one sign about every 3-4 weeks forward in direct motion, every periodically it will go retrograde for about 40 days in a slow backwards movement.
This month Venus will go retrograde in the fixed fierce sign of Leo on July 22, 2023 and go direct on September 3rd, 2023. This is a time that people from our past relationships could resurface. Depending on where the retrograde will transit through your personal natal chart that could indicate what type of relationships will come knocking. This retrograde slows down to reflect on the past so you may pivot in a more strategic way for the future. Revising all social contracts in life. The energy can be progressive by reexamining relationships and exploring love in a healthy way or degressive with unhealthy excessive experiences.
Be mindful of the shadow side of desire in challenging ways. Temptations, infidelity, divorce, breakups, breaks, space, and uncoupling. This is a delicate time so move through these energies in a graceful respectful way or they may be a negative push back on personal choices. Beware of the shadow side of the Ego taking the steering wheel and overriding empathy, compassion and loving intentions. It is a very sensitive, triggering time and unconditional communication is key to survival.
