Hello beautiful souls and welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of July 6 - July 12! Last week was a revolution, what can we expect this week?

Chiron Retrograde is Coming…

Chiron stations retrograde on Saturday in the Fire sign of Aries. Themes we see during this retrograde are related to healing old wounds. Luckily, the Pluto and Neptune retrogrades are also helping us with this deep inner healing, and our emotional intelligence is peaking with the Cancer Sun.

This doesn’t mean you don’t have to do the work. In the spiritual healing realm, we can’t run from our problems. It’s a good week to book a session with a trusted spiritual healer or engage in reiki. If nothing else, carve out time for journaling and meditation.

Mercury is Going Direct!

If you’ve been twiddling your thumbs wondering: ‘When does Mercury go direct?’ get excited for Mercury direct in Cancer on Sunday.

This can help improve our conversations and make us feel more easily understood. If you’ve felt like everything keeps breaking, that will also dwindle away. We may have revamped our long term goals with eclipse season, but with so many retrogrades in play, we may not be able to really kick those plans into full gear until the Fall.

Keep working on your lifestyle, attitude, and habits so you’re prepared for success when it arrives!

You’ll know exactly what’s coming with The Complete Guide to 2020 Retrogrades.

What else can you expect this week from the stars?

The Moon is waning this week. As each day progresses, there is less of the Moon illuminated, which means it’s not the best time to start new projects. Creativity is lower than usual.

That being said, following up and moving forward with opportunities that presented themselves on last week’s Full Moon Lunar eclipse can keep you busy, as they were likely very significant.

As we already know, July 2020 astrology has a lot of retrograde energy with Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, and now Chiron entering the mix.

Be gentle with yourself and patient with others, because we are all probably going to be doing a lot of processing and inner-work that will be intensified by the Cancer Sun.

Keep an eye on your budget, make time for spiritual growth, and notice how your deeply ingrained habits, and ways of thinking, are easier to see. This will allow you to keep the good habits, and toss the bad ones away.

The positive takeaway from this week’s astrology overview is: the intensity of eclipse season is also waning, so the intense change we have experienced through June and the beginning of July is finally backing off, allowing us some relief.

Daily Astrology Snapshots for July 6 - July 12, 2020

Monday, July 6

Sun: Cancer - We just want to love and be loved, but we also want our space. It’s a great time to plan a family gathering (virtual or in-person). We are more sensitive to the needs of others, and able to put ourselves in their shoes.

Moon: Aquarius - We really want to let the idealist that was alive in us when we were younger make a comeback! We are drawn to bold and innovative ideas, and ready to try a new approach to an old problem.

Tuesday, July 7

Sun: Cancer

Moon: Aquarius

Wednesday, July 8

Sun: Cancer

Moon: Aquarius

Transit: Mercury in Cancer (Square) Mars in Aries. We are testy, temperamental, and emotional. It’s a good day to curl up, watch funny movies, and avoid bitter text fights. Also watch out for online spending sprees!

Review: What Mars in Aries Means for Your Zodiac Sign’s Love Life

Thursday, July 9

Sun: Cancer

Moon: Pisces - Peace and love are the themes streaming from the cosmos today. Love and friendship would help you feel right at home today.

Maybe bake someone cookies just because. It’s a good day to put on some music to help create a fun and funky vibe.

Friday, July 10

Sun: Cancer

Moon: Pisces

Saturday, July 11

Sun: Cancer

Moon: Aries - We really need to stop and breathe before we react today. Why? Aries Moon energy can make us speak before thinking, and can make us a bit blunt.

Use the energy to exercise, get things done, and dance to your all-time favorite techno song to burn off excess steam.

Event: Chiron stations retrograde in Aries. This will last until December 15, 2020. It’s time to look inward at our pain so we can heal it. We have been living with our past, and it’s time to relinquish the energy so it no longer controls our emotions and our future.

Create an altar for soul healing, or do something to commemorate this cosmic time where our healing intentions are amplified.

Sunday, July 12

Sun: Cancer

Moon: Aries

Event: Mercury stations direct in Cancer. At last people are able to understand what we say the first time! We can move forward with plans, purchases, and thinking now that the fog of Mercury retrograde has been blown away.

We are ready to raise our sails again, and catch the winds of change now that we have done the maintenance to our mental ropes and rigging.

Transit: Sun in Cancer (Trine) Neptune in Pisces. This harmonious energy helps us feel a renewed sense of inspiration. It’s a good time for artistic expression, spiritual gathering, or just a good conversation over tea.

Let your soul lead today and allow people to see the real you.
