Monthly General Astrology Forecast July 2021
Passion is attraction and self-care
Express a new kind of wellbeing
Happy birthday, Leo!
Jupiter in Pisces has given us a preview of what 2022 can hold for us. July 28 sees it return to Aquarius where it will remain now until the end of the year. Take those dreams, inspired ideas, insights and products of your imagination, and now look at how they can influence your own personal world around you. And aid you to making those goals a reality. If you feel you have been on a spiritual journey since May, how about sharing those insights and revelations? Those tips for soul growth? Those psychic albitites? Jupiter in Pisces hands us healing not just for ourselves, but for the greater good. Even if it is just one other soul who benefits – that’s hugely important work you’ve done.
Despite a new Moon in Cancer (10th) boosting our sensitivity and Mercury in here (11th) as well as the Sun up until the 22nd, we spend the month in big, sparkly, fierce Leo weather. For many when combined with the Cancer planets, this will see us focused on our very own ‘Royal’ families. Leo rules dynasties, royalty and children while Cancer rules home, family and roots. Family values and also what our family stands for. If you have children or are considering becoming a parent, what you have to ‘hand down’ and your family’s place in the world will be in focus this month.
As will be passion. Leo also rules romance and what makes us stand out and shine. Our hobbies, pastimes, creative self-expression. Giving and receiving love. Adoration. Getting noticed and feeling we are special. Lockdown has seen us shut away. We may now all feel the need for not just show the love, but receive and radiate it too.
Our passion is what allows us to feel we belong in the world. It is an often over-looked spiritual tool. Mainly because we are often told not to ‘show off’ or draw too much attention to ourselves. Yet it is by expressing what we love to do that sets the law of attraction in month. They work together. The perfect day where passion and attraction can be harnessed together? The 13th when Venus and Mars meet in Leo. This is your day when it is your right to pursue what you love. And stop caring what others may think.
Message in a Bottle?
Mystic Rectangles are rare and when we look at them in a chart, they look like envelopes. ‘And the Oscar goes to . . .’ Here comes an announcement and a big reveal. Mystic Rectangles form with two trines – the top and bottom of the envelope if you like. And sextiles which are the sides. Then we have two oppositions – the lines which look like the folds of the envelope. We need four planets to be in orb for one to form.
The Mystic Rectangle of the 13th forms with trine between the Moon in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn, and the Sun in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces. The Moon and Sun form a sextile as does Neptune and Pluto. While the Sun and Pluto and Moon and Neptune oppose one another. So, think of this as release of something. In other words, the envelope is opened and what is revealed releases the tension. Just like if you are one of the people waiting for a result. This goes back to what we have all been taking on board during Jupiter’s time in Pisces. We may now let this out. Or express that inner passion we have been building up!
Don’t waste time thinking of opportunities you might have let slip thought your fingers or actions you should have taken. Instead work with what you can do in the here and now as Chiron heads backwards in self-assertive Aries from the 21st. Hindsight is 20/20. Use it to make the most of what you dare do in this moment. Vesta also crosses into Libra on the 21st. Expect gender issues and equality to make fresh headlines.
Ready to roar?
Leo’s ruler the Sun arrives in their sign on the 22nd. The focus is all on what makes us shine now. Leos can look forward to a continued focus on partnership matters thanks to Saturn and now Jupiter once more in their 7th. And new depths of the sharing dynamic in 2022. For more, see your individual forecast for your sign.
Venus asks us to worship our body and love the skin we are in. Health matters and self-care take on fresh importance as it arrives in Virgo also on the 22nd and opposes Jupiter still in Pisces. For many of us, this will be our new priority especially when Mars joins Venus from the 29th.
This month’s full Moon in Aquarius on the 24th once more shines on our passion and where these and our goals meet. While Mercury’s arrival in Leo on the 28th hands us more ideas of how to showcase these. Ceres crosses into Gemini on the final day of the month. Ceres rules seasons, compromises and deals and is now in the sign of ideas, communication, contracts and the internet.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury as is Virgo. So, we will see the effects of not following our bliss has on our wellbeing. Whatever your idea is around your passion, the world’s a better place this month if you choose to find a way to express it.
In a nutshell: Happy birthday to all the Leos out there! The sign of fierce self-expression and royalty tells all of us that to rule our world, we need to stay true to what makes us shine. Discover how your talent improves your wellbeing this July.
