monday july 25th-
at 2:13am venus in cancer squares jupiter in aries, creating tension between the two Benefic planets in fun but also perhaps overdone ways ;) both venus and jupiter like to have a good time. when you put them together that desire for pleasure and fun is expanded! yet too much of a good thing can really be too much. with venus in cancer this can be too much emotion, too much eating, too much subjectivity. with Jupiter in aries it can be acting without thinking of the consequences and being too self involved. balance is of course key- but make the most of the expansion energy and have some fun today with healthy limits!
at 2:48am juno stations retrograde at 21’31 pisces, bringing the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage to a stand still in the sky. whenever a planet or asteroid is stationary the themes and energies it governs are up big time. with juno in the spotlight the focus is on marriage and partnerships of all kind (romantic, business, contractual and financial). getting clear about our commitments and needs is key right now. juno in pisces is uber romantic and unconditionally Loving- but can also wear rose colored glasses and see only Light and not want to see the shadow. juno stations 5 degrees from neptune and is in neptune’s sign- so we want to make sure we are seeing clearly and not sweeping things under the carpet in Love or money situations today and this week.
tuesday july 26th-
at 12:05am pallas athena in gemini semisquares stationary retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. pallas triggers the pluto/eris square this week (today through saturday)- so prepare for some shake up/wake up information, realizations, details that reveal some of the Bigger Picture incoming! pallas is all about the Big Picture but gemini sees the individual trees, not the forest. so the key here is making sure whatever info we receive we use it to expand our vision and not get myopic and only focus on this one small piece. watch out for just skating over the surface of things- dive deep to get to the deepest Truth possible!
mercury in leo squares mars in taurus at 3:13pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the will and drive. mercury/mars can make for intense communications and interactions with others. mercury in leo at best speaks from the heart but shadow mercury in leo speaks from ego. add in mars in fixed earth taurus and we can be bull headed about our positions and think we are right and others are wrong. arguments, combative energy, power dynamics and more can ensue. be conscious in communication today- as people can be trigger happy!
at 3:14pm uranus cojoins the mean north node at 18’34 taurus, aligning the Rebel and Revolutionary with the north node of destiny and evolution! i have a lot to say on this conjunction and wrote an entire blog on it which you can find linked below. i also speak to it in the 2022 yearly forecast and 2022 yearly horoscopes. this is arguably the most important transit of 2022- and we have the eclipses activating it too (the april 30th solar eclipse and the total lunar eclipse on november 8th both trigger it). this is a transit of BIG CHANGE- and in fixed earth taurus it will have us up against our resistance to change and our tendency to want to keep with the status quo. with taurus involved the areas of change range from finance, money and resource to earth, climate change the environment to our values and what is important to us. this is also the sign of self worth and self Love! big changes are incoming and the whole first half of the year has been preparation for them. uranus aligns with the true node on july 31st so these last days of july are POTENT. mars triggers all three (uranus, mean and true node) on august 1st- so from now until then see where the winds of change are blowing and orient in the direction of the winds NOT against them!

wednesday july 27th-
at 12:55pm mercury in leo trines retrograde chiron in aries, aligning the mind and intellect with the Wounded Healer planetoid. deep healing communication is possible right now. sharing our hearts, thoughts and feelings in vulnerable and honest ways supports healing in relationships right now. with both bodies in fire signs focusing on our creativity and honest self-expression is supported today.
thursday july 28th-
today is the LAST DAY for my EARLY BIRD OFFER for my 6 week online course Astrology & Your Shadow- starting August 17th. for more info and to sign up to claim this offer click here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-and-your-shadow-2022/
the new moon at 5’39 LEO is exact 1:55pm EDT, commencing a new lunar cycle that focuses on creativity, authenticity, self expression and living from the Truth of our hearts! this new moon is conjunct ceres the Great Mother and trine jupiter – bringing positive energy into matters pertaining to home, family, children, the environment and more. yet this new moon is also widely opposite pluto – which can bring confrontation and opposition to the new things are attempting to seed and create- personally and collectively. this could manifest as external opposition by others or the powers that be or it could be we are just up against ourselves and our own inner repression. more on this lunation will be shared in the lunar insight, lunar gate call and lunar horoscopes- posted a few days to a week before the new moon (with lunar horoscopes posed by the new moon).
at 3:18pm mercury in leo squares the mean nodes of the moon, creating a T square between the mind and intellect and the nodes of destiny and karma. when planets square the nodes we are brought to a cross roads where we can choose to keep on doing what we have always done (and keep getting what we have always gotten) OR we can move into a new direction and grow. pay attention to communication and information that comes in today as it can shed light on the past and the future and what decisions you need to make to re-orient!
jupiter stations retrograde at 8’43 aries at 4:38pm, bringing the planet of expansion and excess to a standstill in the sky. when a planet is at standstill it’s energy is magnified- and yet jupiter is heading into the Underworld so it is a time to bring his Great Light inward so that we can see what is hidden in the shadow. jupiter standstill in aries can exacerbate aggression, anger, selfishness and impulsivity- so be aware and navigate with care. use this positive energy to help you set or keep boundaries, say no when you mean no and have positive self preservation tendencies.
***with jupiter stationing retrograde we now have all the social and outer planets retrograde except for uranus. with uranus on the north node 2 days ago or in 3 days pending the nodal position you use- this is significant and meaningful. when planets are retrograde they are reigned in from their full power to act and are instead being asked to go within and deal with the past. with uranus still moving forward he has the most power right now and on the north node he has a fated/destined quality at play!!!
at 5:16pm mercury in leo squares uranus in taurus, creating tension between the lower mind and Higher Mind. sudden and unexpected information, revelations and communications can be incoming. keeping the mind open so we are seeing more of the Bigger Picture and not just what we think we know is right is necessary right now. steer clear of rigid thinking and keep the mind open!
friday july 29th-
there are no major aspects today.
saturday july 30th-
at 8:31am pallas athena in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Lord of the Underworld. from tuesday through today pallas has been triggering the pluto/eris square- right smack in the middle of the uranus/north node conjunction portal (7/26-8/1). this is a recipe for big reveals and things coming to Light that were previously hid in the shadow or swept under the carpet. the winds of change are blowing and one of the things being blown is our MINDS! gemini loves to learn and glean new information but shadow gemini stays on the surface- and pluto demands we dive deep. if the lower egoic mind is in the drivers seat- prepare for some shocks and reveals! if we can use the information or realizations incoming to shatter illusions- the Truth can set us free!
sunday july 31st-
at 2:05am mercury in leo opposes retrograde saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of Karma. mercury/saturn can be heavy, depressing and/or reality demanding. conversations can feel difficult or bring in awarenesses that force us to see and deal with reality. yet positively saturn can help us get real. when we can see what is versus what we want or wish there was- we are them empowered to deal with things head on! use this masterful energy today to cut through the bullshit! (your own or with others or in the world around)
venus in cancer squares retrograde chiron in aries at 10:04am, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. venus/chiron brings up deep old wounds and pain around self-Love, self-worth, finances, relationships and more. when we question our worth and value we will attract people who do not honor and respect us. healing around self-worth is key to attracting different kinds of people and relationships into our lives. with chiron in aries- if we are afraid of our anger and rage and internalize it it can come out as depression or illness. getting in touch with our yin and yang, feminine and masculine- is key to wholeness. until we do this we project the disowned part of ourselves onto others and call it fate. venus/chiron is a great time to dive deep into our journey of healing around worth, love, abundance and relationship right now.
at 11:59am mercury in leo sesquiquadrates jupiter in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and abundance. mercury/jupiter is wonderful for expanding our minds through learning, teaching, traveling and exposure to things that are outside of our comfort zone. yet this is a tense aspect so we need to watch out for ego driven beliefs and hubris- as well as too much yang fire that we want to hit people over the head with our versions of Truth. have fun and speak your Truth but make sure that comes with space for others’ own perceptions as well ;)
at 4:05pm uranus conjoins the true north node today! read the entry from 7/26 when i talked about the mean node conjunction for the full download. also read my blog about this potent transit here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-conjunct-the-north-node-sudden-and-irrevocable-change-7-26-8-1/
the sun in leo trines retrograde jupiter in aries at 6:36pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion and positivity! this is a great day to be creative, expressive and GO FOR IT! the sun in leo is passionate and heart centered and jupiter expands the heart and fuels passion in positive ways. this can be lovely for travel, learning, teaching, and any kind of mind or Spirit expansion!
may the winds of change blow with the utmost grace and ease. so mote it be <3
have a blessed week…
