The Sun in July is in sensitive, mystical, and intuitive Cancer until July 21, and July 2022 encourages us to reconnect with our hearts and our power of love. The coming month is about strengthening compassion for others but also for ourselves while creating a beautiful home inside and out. However, right at the beginning of this month, from July 2, we may feel that we are facing more hurdles than usual, as Mars in Aries will be in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn on July 2, which means that we will somehow feel frustrated right at the beginning of the month and should definitely protect ourselves and others from impulsive behavior, power struggles, jealousy, and hostility.
On 21.06 at the solstice the sun changed into the sign Cancer. That means at the latest from then on we could feel in us and our familiar environment after all the cosmic also airy (Gemini) turmoil then again a little more at home and more comfortable, because the sun illuminates the emotional and home and family-oriented sign of Cancer in which on 29.06 also the new moon took place.
Fashion designers with the zodiac sign of Cancer include: Vera Wang, Elie Saab, Giorgio Armani or Oscar de la Renta who are known for fine dreamy looks and romantic designs.
We are more thin-skinned, emotional and sensitive than usual - after all, it is Cancer season.
In fact, it also helps us really feel the energetic transition into this watery and emotional quality of time precisely because both Mercury moves into the sensitive sign of Cancer on July 5 and Venus on July 18.
In addition, we are no longer as energetic and driven with Mars in Taurus as of July 5 instead of previously Mars in the domicile of Aries and may invite a little more slowness though also perseverance and patience.
There may be some frustration and inner turmoil during the month as Mars approaches the North Node of the Moon and Uranus in Taurus.
Basically, July calls for some forbearance and empathy towards our loved ones and family, as well as ourselves.
On July 11, the United States will have its second exact Pluto return. Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth
Pluto will hopefully bring some kind of revolution. It seems that the basic intentions of the U.S., already set for this country on July 4, 1776 (Declaration of Independence), are again being fiercely tested.
The process of (inner child) healing continues and becomes even more intense when healing planetoid Chiron turns retrograde in Aries on July 19 and the Sun is in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn on July 20.
And then at the end of the month when Mars and Venus and the Sun all move into the courageous and creative sign of Leo in July, we will once again firmly consider the light of ourselves that we want to bring out into the world from our hearts, how we want to be and are seen, and what makes us so unique. A feeling that you want to reinvent yourself is already noticeable in the energy swing of July.
With the Sun entering Leo on 07/22 and the New Moon in Leo on July 28, our personal reboot then realigns with a global awakening, and the individual facets of our new selves fit into a vast new mosaic of global karma. You could also call the New Moon in Leo a Revolutionary New Moon, so many rebellious revolutionary energies are interfering here astrologically.
On July 28, the ruler of the year, Jupiter, turns retrograde in ambitious Aries, marking a turning point in his rapid development since May 11 and hopefully countering our world's hurriedness with deceleration.
