Two women dance joyously against a rising sun.

July’s ascension energies focus on creating healthy and strong boundaries, manifesting inner gratitude, joy, harmony, passion, and wisdom through the doorway to our soul self.

Solarized sparks from this month’s energetic shifts take us by storm as we enter the number “7” vibrations of July.

2021 is the new lens that will gift us a clearer understanding of how to move forward into a higher dimension based on unity and oneness for all. We must be completely present in the moment to gain the momentum we need to build a new foundation. We are bridging the gap between spirit and matter, light and dark, as the Universe, so the soul.

July comes in to help us cultivate healthy new habits and practices to release stagnant energy and trauma from our bodies.

Anything we hold on to emotionally, mentally, and physically holds us back from where we are going. Now it’s time to really let go and learn how to flow in the moment, trusting that the Universe will bring you exactly where you need to be. When we balance extremes and bring harmony to opposites, we can flow more freely and intentionally between the physical and astral worlds.

From major planetary shifts, eclipses, supermoons, and retrogrades, we have dealt with major energy this year, and July 2021 comes packed with even more astrological shifts!

The Sirius gateway opens July 1st and lasts until the 7th, with Mars opposing Saturn, trine Chiron, and square Uranus. This energy is sure to set July to new social heights while breaking down old systems and traditions. Mercury officially ends post-retrograde shadow, with the Cancer New Moon birthing the soul’s foundation.

Venus enters Virgo right before the Sun moves into Leo, sparking the Aquarius Full Moon.

Let’s explore this month’s powerful energy!

Your July 2021 Energy Forecast

July 1, 2021: Mars Opposite Saturn

Social Struggles

Mars and Saturn Rx form a dynamic opposition stimulating the need to act on social change. Ever since Saturn and Uranus clashed for the second time back on June 14th, the need for change and freedom, along with fear of the unknown, has caused a great deal of unrest.

Mars in Leo generates the ego’s resistance to Saturn’s desire for limitation and discipline.

When operating at a high vibrational frequency, this transit will help us socially achieve balance and realize that the highest action is when we follow the natural order of the Universe. At its lowest, this transit becomes confrontational and may generate destructive activity, aggression, attacks, depression, and civil unrest.

Soon after, Mars forms a harmonious trine with Chiron and squares Uranus. We are collectively healing historical wounds, lifting the veil, and uncovering the truth. Remember, chaos is energy seeking an outlet. Always send it to love.

July 4, 2021: Sun Square Chiron & Venus Sextile North Node

Healing the Personality

Powerful galactic frequencies emit in the sky, marking a new journey to heal the personality and fragmented identities.

The Sun clashes with Chiron, “the wounded healer,” revealing the shadow of our identity and self-expression. With Venus in an easy-going sextile to the North Node and Mercury at its greatest Western elongation, we have a powerful opportunity to turn on the light and heal the personality, with the Sirius Gateway open until the 7th.

Healing sparks of cosmic light send earth into higher dimensions of divine truth. The battle between your personality, identity, and soul is what stops you from moving forward.

This is a wonderful time to bring more harmony and healing into your life.

July 7, 2021: Mercury Retrograde Post Shadow Ends & Venus Trine Chiron

Communicating Your Heart’s Desires

After a dramatic retrograde, Mercury is officially out of the post-shadow Rx. Whew! Thank you! Let us take a moment to give thanks for such an eventful journey.

Thank you for all the sparks of realization. The collective has come so far in learning how to speak their truth from an empowered place. You are an artist and a healer because both are the same. Embrace these new changes and know that true love comes from within.

It comes from actively communicating your heart’s desires and trusting that the Universe supports you.

July 9, 2021: Cancer New Moon

Birthing the Soul’s Foundation

Today is an emotionally charged day, with the Cancer New Moon is closing out the summer eclipse portal that opened in May. We have traveled through a dynamic portal that represented transformation and alchemy of the highest order.

Now, the Cancer New Moon births the soul’s foundation, grounding in physical form.

Cancer is the foundation of creation and the light of emotional power—also, the divine feminine yin essence and the mother nourish all life. The New Moon is conjunct Sirius, sextile Uranus, trine Neptune, square Chiron, and opposite Pluto. We have an opportunity to receive divine wisdom from the ascended masters to heal and arrive at a spiritually satisfying solution in our lives.

This soul alignment asks you to get in touch with, realize, and utilize your unique gifts and talents.

The key to getting in touch with the deepest parts of yourself is through compassion, patience, accountability, and responsibility. It is time to elevate and take care of ourselves, each other, and our planet.

Today marks an extraordinary collective and personal mission: to fulfill your highest spiritual destiny.

July 11, 2021: Mercury Enters Cancer

Upgrading Emotional Intelligence

After an eventful cycle, Mercury enters the emotional waters of Cancer to cool off, pause, digest, and reset.

There was a lot of activity and unexpected twists and turns with Mercury in Gemini. This most recent retrograde brought us face to face with our demons and provided our inner operating system with a boost of diamond consciousness. Now in Cancer, Mercury provides us an opportunity to digest and process those experiences to move forward in higher light.

There is a great deal of support from the unmanifested realms that helps us open our minds to a higher perspective. The challenge under this energy is achieving a balance between emotional and mental energies, communicating compassion, empathy, and kindness.

Mercury wants to find healthy outlets to express the depths of your experiences and gain emotional intelligence through connecting with the arts.

This energy may cause you to take things personally, creating outbursts and moody behaviors. When unresolved issues rise to the surface, the attitude of forgiveness can calm the murky waters of the past. Speak from your heart, and don’t be afraid to own your truth even if that truth is frightening to others.

July 15, 2021: Chiron Retrograde

Reinventing Self

This is a powerful day of transformation guiding the inspiring flow of cosmic fire to heal the fragmented personality, with Chiron stationing retrograde 12 degrees in Aries.

Chiron retrograde in Aries symbolizes the ability to take higher action in healing our sense of self. Unexpected chaos in our external environment is the trigger that forces us to go within and be the change we want to see in the world.

This is a wonderful time for self-realization, self-actualization, and healing, with Chiron bringing our focus to the aspects of ourselves that may feel uncomfortable and we associate with doubt or shame.

Our feelings and thoughts matter because that is what drives our actions.

If we do not heal the wounded sense of self and transform the personality, we operate from a low vibration, and our nervous system becomes triggered. That trigger causes wounding, which stores an energetic signature in our physical body. To be able to take higher spiritual action, desire, and will. We must make peace with ourselves and practice self-love from a higher lens.

When you revisit experiences or situations from the past, remember that this is an opportunity to face the enemy in self to reimagine, reinvent, or rework it. Chiron will form a harmonious trine to the Sun in Leo on August 4th and a rainbow bridge to Venus on the 26th.

This is the key to healing the personality and revealing the light of the soul.

July 17, 2021: Sun Opposes Pluto

Rebirth of a New Collective

The Sun and Pluto form a dynamic bridge that amplifies the rebirth of a new collective. If we push or fight with our shadow, we create that fight in our physical reality.

Under this energy, you may confront those parts of self-labeled as negative or destructive. This transformational process is about recognizing the shadow as a part of your own unconscious to purge and transmute lower vibrational frequencies.

So often, we repress aspects of ourselves because it is too painful or scary to look at.

This powerful opposition holds space for all to honor the shadows, the void, and the absence of light. Duality is an illusion of the mind, and the shadow is a part of you that should not be feared. Most of the time, our subconscious tries to protect the ego by employing defense mechanisms that include suppression, projection, or manipulation.

The negativity found within yourself is a ladder to ascend to higher heights of consciousness, ultimately healing the shadow.

July 20, 2021: Mercury Conjunct Sirius

DNA Activations & Upgrades

The illuminated messenger conjuncts the great stars of the skies, Sirius also known as the dog star, the brightest star in the heavens.

This conjunction launches a brand-new beginning in communicating with higher realms of the ascended masters. This is a powerful day that allows us to reach beyond the physical dimension, far beyond what we can see or know.

Light codes and galactic activations send the planet into a higher realm, allowing us to convert wisdom from the ascended masters and download it into our light body.

July 21, 2021: Venus in Virgo

Refining Relationships

Venus moves into the Mutable sign of Virgo, birthing the true master healer/teacher from the depths of our hearts.

Virgo is the perfection of creation and the light emotional wisdom that brings balance to mind, body, and spirit. Balance is cultivated by perfecting the relationship with self and carefully tending to your own wellbeing. It’s important to use this transit as a time to reflect on areas where you may have been too critical, harsh, or picky in your relationships or how you make decisions.

When we make decisions and evaluate our experiences, we must take our various relationships with objects and people into consideration when analyzing important areas of our lives.

Ask yourself, are you putting unreasonable expectations on yourself or others? Are you not seeing the bigger picture and being too critical of the minor details? These are all wonderful questions to ask yourself with Venus in Virgo.

Through self-realization, actualization, discipline, and practice, we can learn how to tend to our own well-being and be a greater service to humanity. This transit is great for examining our inner world and how that reflects our relationships with money, people, time, sex, and food.

It will also bring awareness that every answer you need is in your heart.

July 22, 2021: Sun Enters Leo & Venus Opposes Jupiter

Radiating Abundance

After an intermission in Cancer, the Sun enters the fiery sign of Leo, the life-giver that radiates abundance, blessings, and gratitude.

This fixed zodiac represents the birthplace of the individual and the light of emotional love. The Sun reminds us of our dignified nature while in Leo.

Just like the Sun, it is our authentic nature to shine bright like a diamond. There is nothing more powerful than coming home to your true self.

This season is about expressing your creative side, generosity, and loyalty, along with gaining self-confidence and displaying your emotionally warm nature. Avoid being too controlling, flamboyant, self-centered, and quick-tempered. A balanced attitude is a key to maximizing harmony, joy, and pleasure in your life.

Leo rules the Heart charka, and when we make time to rest and relax, we strengthen our energetic body and heart. Under the Sun in Leo, invite more compassion, confidence, joy, and love into your life.

During this time, Venus opposes Jupiter suggesting that conflict stems from expansive energies focused on only one area of your life.

The overindulgent energy of Jupiter may cause you to make some poor financial, social, or relationship decisions out of selfishness. Use this energy to transform your value system and guide your relationships in a positive manner.

July 23, 2021: Aquarius Full Moon

Learning Healthy Emotional Detachment

July’s Full Moon occurs 1 degree in the innovating sign of Aquarius, launching us into a higher dimension of awakened collective consciousness. Aquarius is the light that forever shines in the darkness, the fixed zodiac of spiritual love, and collective unity.

This month’s Full Moon is conjunct Saturn, making things seem worse than what they are. Aquarius reminds us that there is much work to do, and we must learn how to emotionally detach from the past in a healthy manner. When we surrender assumptions and expectations, we can reboot our thought patterns to higher levels and establish the framework for the new earth paradigm.

When we fixate on the outcome of situations instead of trusting the universe, we delay and even stop our blessings.

Our whole life, we have been programmed to fear. Our inner operating system is attuned to hate, lack, and scarcity. Now, we have an amazing chance to invoke intimacy and love, calling forth a new way of living and thinking.

July 25, 2021: Mercury Opposes Pluto

Day Out of Time

Pluto challenges and disrupts our ability to communicate and process information while in opposition with Mercury.

Here, we have a chance to achieve a balance between the conscious and subconscious realms. This transformational process through the waters of Cancer, grounding in Capricorn, is the powerful moment of truth where we face the ego’s assumptions, perceptions, and shadows, clearing away any distractions and hindrances.

Today also marks the final day of the galactic calendar, the “Day Out of Time,” which is the culmination of the 13-moon calendar year in Mayan astrology. A sacred period to pause and celebrate before the dawning of The Galactic New Year.

This is a great time to give thanks for art and the sacredness of life.

July 27, 2021: Mercury Enters Leo

The Gates of Creation

The messenger moves full speed ahead into the fiery sign of Leo. With this energy, we have a chance to redevelop our values and self-worth to gain a more positive outlook on life.

Leo is the life-giver, the sign of emotional love, gratitude, and the soul’s creative expression. Mercury’s journey has been an epic one so far.

Now in Leo, Mercury is ready to move us forward toward inner gratitude, love, and attunement to infinite light. Use this time to explore the nature of your mental creativity and power of communication. When you hold back your thoughts with hesitation or timidity, you guarantee rejection and may end up using negative behaviors to cover up insecurities.

Words form our thoughts which crystalize our perceptions and belief systems, thus creating our reality. When we cultivate a healthy mindset and find confidence in personal expression, we align with the source’s divine creative power.

Avoid overly dramatic and boastful behavior. It’s important to listen and be receptive to others.

July 28, 2021: Jupiter Retrograde Re-Enters Aquarius

Jupiter, the most majestic of the planets, re-enters Aquarius until December 28th, 2021, where it will station in Pisces until December 2022.

This backward dance of the largest planet in Aquarius will revisit major themes from the 2020 Grand Conjunction signifying the final drafting of new laws and higher-order that will anchor in the new Earth paradigm.

We have a chance to gain more information and come together as a stronger collective group. Political and societal arguments may increase, shifting the focus on collective healing and growth.

Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius encourages you to take the time out to listen to your inner wisdom and embrace your unique individuality.

July 29, 2021: Mars Enters Virgo

Recognizing Right Action

Mars finishes the month off on a powerful note by moving into the sign of Virgo. Mars in Virgo is a profound cycle that will integrate the physical body with emotional wisdom, as the new relationship between the body and mind takes root in higher consciousness.

It may take a while for you to realize the full impact of the cellular upgrades provided by this cycle.

You must trust that you have the power to shift your thoughts to be a generator of love. When our thoughts are clear, we recognize “right action” and act from a higher place. A place that is rooted in the soul’s greatest good. This is a wonderful time to focus on the small details, break down ideas and your course of action into manageable tasks.

Do not overstress yourself by striving for perfection. You are perfect in all imperfections.

Learn how to recognize “right action” through controlling your desires.

July 30, 2021: Sun Sextile North Node, Trine South Node

Revealing the Ego Self

The Sun in Leo forms an easygoing sextile with the North Node while manifesting with the South Node. You have an ample opportunity to find your true self by learning that your ego-self is unreal.

This planetary conversation suggests that you have many natural strengths and talents from past lifetimes. Those talents are extremely accessible to you and can help you deal with stressful obstacles or situations. At the same time, it is important to understand that those talents may be easily manipulated by the ego.

When you know yourself, you clearly see when the ego tries to manipulate your gifts and talents.

Energy Tips for July 2021

This month is about refinement and expressing the soul’s highest vibrational frequency. Fine-tuning ourselves, our beliefs, thoughts, patterns, and relationship dynamics, so we may grow closer to accepting ourselves and learning how to accept others.

Collective growth comes from individual growth and the willingness to apply discipline to be the change you want to see in the world.

July’s oracle card is “Double Mission,” brought to you by the Starseed

This card serves as a reminder that many souls have a double mission. Meaning we have an individual mission and a collective mission. July revealed the importance of healing and being you, to help heal the collective. Healing the collective does not have to be extravagant. All it takes is you following your heart and walking in your passions and joys.

You serve the world by being you.

Use this month to:

  • Dance
  • Practice inner gratitude
  • Find new ways to express your creativity
  • Do something you have never done before (nothing crazy, just simple)
  • Surround yourself with people who support you and believe in your purpose

Express your soul self!

Happy July!
