Life is beginning to pick up speed this month and you can start to look ahead to what next.
As July begins, your ruling planet Venus is in Cancer and the sector of your chart which rules communication, ideas and all matters relating to the written and spoken word.
This is not a month to keep yourself to yourself but instead spread your net wide to connect with other people and share what you know. This is about community and learning that there’s not only safety in numbers but added brain power, more ideas, the belief that together you’re bigger and better.
You might be connecting on-line and drawing new people into your life. This is a wonderful time to make new friends and to find people of like minds who inspire you. You might want to join in with your local community close to home and this sector of your chart also rules siblings and neighbours. This is where opportunity lies in the month ahead so make the most of it.
This month, the New Moon takes place in Cancer on the 4th, Independence Day. This is a brilliant date to launch a new initiative, to start a petition, to go back to school, to reach out to other people.
Plus two weeks later on the 19th, the Full Moon takes place cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac highlighting travel, study and what you believe in. This is a powerful date to take a trip away, book a holiday or course and to be open to new experiences and adventure.
The planets suggest that this month it’s time to get rid of whatever’s outdated and old in your life, the things you no longer need or no longer benefit you. This is also related to your mindset and your beliefs and anything or anyone who holds you back in life. It’s time for a fresh approach and doing things differently.
There may be occasions when you find it more difficult to trust yourself and your instincts and the 7th and 29th are especially challenging in this respect. If you’re let down or life surprises you in some way, work at letting go of your expectations and see whether a new path opens up for you. Sometimes it’s when life doesn’t work out the way you want it to that you feel liberated to strike out in a new direction.
