monday july 18th-
at 3:01am mercury in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. mercury/pluto is great for therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. yet the tense nature of this opposition can make for unexpected revelations, emotional intensity and power/control dynamics in communication. using this astrology to dive deep and confront emotions and things from the past is key. mercury will trigger the pluto/eris square all day today- so pay attention to what is arising in communication, thinking, information and ideas!

mercury cojoins ceres at 27’37 cancer at 5:35am, linking the mind and intellect with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. we had ceres opposite pluto yesterday (sunday july 17th) and today mercury triggers both of them- so there is carryover of energy from yesterday through to today. as these aspects occur in the early morning hours they may manifest through dreams overnight so pay attention! mercury/ceres opposite pluto can bring up power struggles or intensity in family relationships- with mothers, children, co-parents, siblings, people you share home space with and more. positively mercury helps us give voice to what needs to be spoken to- but with the oppositions to pluto there can be a lot of intensity and repressed emotion coming through communication so we want to be wise in what we say, express OR how we receive what we hear. all last week ceres triggered the pluto/eris square- and then the sun and mercury triggered the whole thing which continues this week through thursday. all of this astrology is triggering the USA’s pluto return- just like the potent super full moon in capricorn conjunct pluto did last week as well. big things are up personally and collectively – shining a Light on what is toxic, stagnant, stuck, patriarchal and old paradigm. deep emotions are arising that may be triggered by present circumstances but have roots in the distant past. this is a GREAT time to be in therapy or to be doing any kind of emotional healing work. the insights into what is in the shadow or Unconscious coming up right now can be powerful when worked with wisely!


tuesday july 19th-
at 8:35am mercury moves out of cancer and into leo, shifting the mind and intellect from water to fire, yin to yang, inward focused to externally focused. mercury in leo is great for creative self expression, sharing one’s Truth and in the process having fun! in the coming weeks speak up and express yourself! just watch out for narcissism and hubris- being open to other’s perspectives and Truths is key.

chiron stations retrograde 16’26 aries at 11:21am, making the Wounded Healer the most powerful planetoid in the sky. themes of both wounding and healing are strong right now. opportunities to face wounds and past conditioning around masculine energy, fire, anger, desire, selfishness, immaturity and agency are present. but we can also find any shadow in our relationship to the masculine is up big time right now. healing and wholeness are the goal of chiron- so using his insights and what is arising right now to see more clearly what within us is hindering us and what needs to be integrated is the best way to work the astrology right now.

at 9:38pm sun in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. sun/pluto can be deep, passionate and intense- but it can also unearth or exacerbate power struggles, shadow, jealousy and possessiveness. the sun is right smack in the midst of triggering the jupiter/pluto conjunction (7/14-15) and the pluto/eris square (7/15-16). we are being shown what is karmic, stagnant, stuck or toxic in our lives and what we need to do to release it/complete it. be aware of what is going on behind the scenes- in yourself and with others right now. this is an excellent time for shadow work and working with emotions- as the shadow/emotions we do not face/own are what runs us. keep this in mind right now!!!


wednesday july 20th-
at 2:03am mars in taurus semisquares retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the will and drive and the planet of mysticism but also illusion and deception. at best mars/neptune is the Spiritual Warrior- using his energy to help the collective, take action based on compassion and be of service. yet the tense nature of the aspect can exacerbate our own denial about the actions we do or do not take and the way our doing so (or not doing so) impacts the world. be honest, direct and forth right right now. holding onto an old paradigm that serves the few and not the many will not serve.

venus in cancer semisquares uranus in taurus at 5:44pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Rebel and Revolutionary. uranus is in venus’ sign- shaking up our attachments to safety and security that have become the blockages to growth and evolution. both cancer and taurus like to hold onto things- cancer more so emotionally and taurus more so materially- but both of them can overdo this tendency to the point of blocking growth. venus/uranus is showing us what has to go! opening to the new, thinking outside of the box and being willing to lighten up (emotionally, literally and more) is supported today! just be aware there can be an unexpected energy playing out – particularly if we have been resisting change so long that the only way to shift is to pull the rug out from underneath us ;)


thursday july 21st-
venus in cancer semisquares the mean north node and sesquiquadrates the mean south node at 2:32am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the nodes of destiny and karma. we are being shown clearly what we are holding onto that is toxic, stagnant, stuck and where we need to evolve and grow by letting go and allowing change to come in! as this aspect occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious.

at 7:17am jupiter in aries semisquares retrograde saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the two social teacher planets. jupiter wants expansion and growth at all costs- saturn prefers pruning, solidifying and grounding. the two are very opposite in their energies but they share commonality in their sign placements as both aries and aquarius are uber independent and resist any kind of control or limitations put on them. we currently have jupiter triggering the separating saturn/uranus square- starting with jupiter semisquare uranus on may 11th and semisquare saturn today. the orb between saturn and uranus are wide but they are closing in on each other and in september jupiter will trigger both within a week of each other (september 21-28). we would do well to pay attention to right now and what is up for us as that is giving us a heads up on what is incoming that first week of fall (or spring if you are in the southern hemisphere). Jupiter is expansion, saturn contraction- jupiter looks for possibilities, saturn looks at reality. it can feel like being between a rock and a hard place. jupiter in aries wants to start things, initiate and get going! saturn is putting the breaks on and is reigning in our desires. ultimately we need to find balance between expansion and contraction, growth and pruning as they are two sides to the same coin of the circle of life. wherever one has been overdone at the expenses of the other- we can be confronted with karmic blockages that need to be addressed right now!

at 11:08am eris stations retrograde at 25’01 aries, bringing the Goddess of discord, chaos and upheaval into strong focus. eris is the Goddess who threw the apple of discord and caused the trojan war- but she is not all bad as she is often made out to be. she can only cause discord when there is unrest and shadow underneath that is not being acknowledged or dealt with- and her role in mythology is to bring to Light that which others don’t want to see but need to look at in order to evolve. being willing to look at what you don’t want to look at and call out in yourself and others that which is hidden is powerful medicine that must be held with much consciousness, awareness and compassion. watch out for anger and rage today (eris is in aries after all) and have healthy outlets for it so it can be worked with creatively rather than destructively. to learn more about eris my ERIS MASTERCLASS is now available on demand- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/eris-masterclass-now-available-for-purchase/

the sun cojoins ceres at 29’15 cancer at 9:25pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. this is the completion of the sun/mercury/ceres triple conjunction that has been triggering the pluto/eris square since the beginning of last week. with the sun and ceres at the karmic 29th degree- there can be big things coming up for completion or resolution in home/family dynamics and around the deep emotional journey we have been through in the last couple of weeks. bringing Light to what needs to be tended to and perhaps fully released, transformed or transmuted is key!


friday july 22nd-
happy mary magdalene feast day! mary magdelene’s true role in jesus’ life is being discovered and revealed. in 2016 her status was officially elevated by the catholic church to that of a saint. if you are interested in learning more about her i highly recommend the books ‘rituals in sacred stone’ and ‘mary magdalene revealed’ (there are others too- you can google for them). she is now called ‘the apostle of the apostles’. there are some, like myself, that believe she was the partner of jesus. this is not simply heresy but comes from biblical texts that were buried and hidden that revealed info as such. 2000 years ago as the patriarchal consciousness and monotheistic god with no wife began to take hold- there existed a very different consciousness that understood that both the masculine and the feminine were Divine and that God had a wife- and her name was Asherah. the healing of the split on our planet boils down to the healing of this split between masculine and feminine, mind and body, spirit and soul. to elevate the Divine Feminine and bring her back to her rightful place of balance with the Divine Masculine is key to the evolution of humanity and in my opinion it is key to the survival of humanity as well! take some time today to honor the Divine Feminine within and without <3

at 4:07pm the sun moves out of cancer and into leo, shifting the conscious self and ego from lunar to solar, yin to yang. the sun rules leo and is very well placed in this sign! the coming month is a time to shine, be creative, be on stage, lead and do so from the heart! just watch out for the shadow of the sun’s journey through leo- narcissism, needing adoration and attention and having a hard time focusing on others ;)


saturday july 23rd-
at 4:08am jupiter in aries sextiles pallas in gemini, linking the planet of expansion and abundance with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. jupiter/pallas is excellent for expanding our minds so we can see the Bigger Picture at play, connect the dots and realize more of the Truth in personal as well as collective matters. jupiter inspires us to take action based on what we realize- while pallas in gemini helps us see the trees first so then we can assess the forest. opportunities to teach, travel, learn and expand should be embraced right now!

ceres moves out of cancer and into leo at 1:26pm, shifting the Great Mother asteroid Goddess from water to fire, moon to sun, yin to yang. ceres in leo loves to parent and care for others! this position of the Great Mother is creative, expressive, generous and playful! we just need to be aware of the shadow of ceres in leo- trying to make our children and projects be about us rather than about them and their own unique expression of self.

at 1:52pm mercury in leo trines jupiter in aries, bringing a harmonious alignment between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and exploration. this is great for opening our mind, having conversations that are eye opening, travel, teaching, learning and moving beyond preconceived boundaries or limitations. with both bodies in fire signs this is great for creativity and self expression! put your authentic self out there!


sunday july 24th-
at 8:58am mercury in leo sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the planet of intuition, illusion and confusion. mercury/neptune can be imaginative, psychic and mystical but it can also be out to lunch, ungrounded, avoidant and spiritual bypassing ;) be aware of where your intuition needs to be discerned from your fear or fantasy.

venus in cancer sesquiquadrates retrograde saturn in aquarius at 8:16pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn can bring some heavy or get real moments in home or family situations, romantic relationships, money and resources and more. saturn demands we see and deal with reality and in airy aquarius he wants us to do so with detachment. venus in cancer is deeply emotional but can also be over emotional and emotionally subjective. finding balance between honoring our emotions and feeling them without wallowing in them/collapsing into them OR disassociating with them is key. saturn can help us see what IS so that we can deal with what is not working first. then we are supported in having more solid foundations upon which to build what is possible!


have a blessed week…
