On the go? Listen to the July podcast!
July is an 11/2-Universal
Month in a 4-Universal Year
7 (July) + 4 (2020) = 11 psychic development, illumination
Reduce the eleven: 1 + 1 = 2 partnership, harmony, balance
I recently saw a quote about believing in what you pray for, and the July numerology really lines up with that mentality. So often we make wishes, or even start new habits, without asking for the assistance of the spiritual world. Unseen helpers are Spiritual allies like the angels, our Creator, your deceased loved ones, those in the "Summerland" of life after death. They are ready to participate in your life the moment you invite them in. Ask for a magical third option in July, and believe that help is on the way.
Access the numerology by focusing on your internal justice system. What are your standards of integrity? Which relationships are working well in your life? Which ones need a healing message? Where can you find fairness and middle ground? Ask for help from the Unseen world and see what doors open up. Word to the wise? be mindful of people-pleasing tendencies.
Numerology Power Days
July 4 - Clear intentions
July 22 - Get metaphysical!
One of the major transits of 2020 is Jupiter's three passes of sextiling Neptune. This transit occurs on February 20, July 27, and October 12. During its second pass this month, it can be beneficial to review what was going on in February. Collectively, this is when much of the world began working with a new normal regarding covid precautions. Jupiter is the megaphone for Neptune, the unknown. This is our opportunity to pause, pivot, and accept what we can't change while we revise what isn't working. October will bring another turning point.
Saturn's retrograde into Cancer is another huge theme this month. Karmically, we are seeking inner fulfillment by reviewing our achievements and goals. This is an ideal time to clean up any previous images of yourself through forgiveness, relationship healing, and tightening up your authentic presence. Where do you need to create a clean slate?

Touchy Venus semisquares a worked up Jupiter and pent-up Pluto: Karmic relationships are transforming us. This can feel heavy, deep, and fated. Is it time to make up or breakup? Mixed signals, over-shares, and awkward situations are likely. Is someone blowing something out of proportion? Or not paying enough attention to the important issues?
Retrograde Mercury squares fed-up Mars: Pent up aggression, tension, and anxieties are more likely during this time. Look for healthy ways to have a physical and/or emotional release. Save important conversations, decisions, or travel for another time.
Come Friday, Venus sextiles Chiron and we are ready to receive grace. Know who it's ok to be vulnerable with and connect with your yin side.
Weekend Vibes: “The wound is the place where the Light
enters you.” -Rumi.
Two steps forward and one step back. Life’s a dance you learn as you go this weekend, with the Moon entering Aries and Mercury direct, you’re feeling energized and ready to tackle projects. The mental fog and confusion is lifting in some ways, but Chiron retrograde may call you to slow down and focus on personal issues. What is really holding you back? Where has self-reliance failed you?
A bright spot in the weekend forecast is Sun trine Neptune: Synchronicity. Good luck and inspiration are enhanced in the areas Neptune rules: creative thinking, the Sea, inner peace, magical insights, music, and performances. Planning ahead? This pleasant transit comes back for more on November 10th.
This Week: July 13 - 19
Sun opposes Jupiter and Pluto: Many of us are reaching an edge and finding our limits. If you're coming unglued, remember that life is happening for you, not to you. Your karmic development is everything. Focus on psychic development, inner illumination, and your spiritual quest. Our psychic classes are rolling!
Mars conjuncts Chiron: Pay it forward to the divine masculine in your life: Dads, brothers, colleagues, uncles, etc. Spiritual warriors, rise up! This is your call to action.
Venus semisquares Saturn - watch out for unexpected expenses and do not make large credit card purchases if possible. This is not an ideal time to be flirting with finances. Bereavement, penny pinching to the extreme, and icy emotions are more likely.

Sun opposes Saturn: Personal space and independence are themes of this transit, although you may find yourself dealing with challenging situations regarding authority figures, the elderly, the masculine, and dads. Be mindful of your public appearance in comparison with your personal issues. Keep your nose to the grindstone: hard work pays off, but this is not the time to sign deals, advance your position, or expect major gains.
Mercury squares Chiron: Go easy on yourself and others. Pain is just below the surface for many you encounter. Mental illness, head wounds, false beliefs come up for healing.

This Week: July 27 - August 2
The Jupiter sextile Neptune lifts on Monday the 27th. This transit offers a major theme of 2020. Entertainment, metaphysical groups, favorable deals, and big magic are available when you reach for them with long-term and spiritual goals in mind.
Venus squares Neptune: Plot twists, toxins, lover's quarrels, singing on the wrong note, sugar overload, and buyer's remorse.
Mercury squares Mars: Pent up aggression, tension, and anxieties are more likely during this time. Look for healthy ways to have a physical and/or emotional release. Pack your patience and tolerance. This is not an optimal time for important conversations, decisions, or travel.
Sun semisquares Neptune: Other people's problems can become your emergency during this time. Errors are likely, you can become more injury-prone, and mistakes are common. Double-check all chemicals/drugs, and make sure you're in touch with reality. Delays at this time are beneficial. Planning ahead? This transit repeats on October 26th.

Mercury opposes Jupiter and trines Neptune: Lay low, take a nap, and let something come to you in a dream. Journal prompts: Do I trust my intuition? Am I willing to say what I intuitively know?
