Monday, July 18
Sun trine Neptune 25º20’
At 00:55 the sun, the planet of the soul, harmonizes with Neptune, the planet of beliefs. This can be extremely heady and idealistic. But, it’s granting wishes. “I’m whoever you want me to be.” Excellent, convincing acting skills.
It also reminds me of blue Gatorade. Like drinking something with electrolytes after food poisoning. Sun poisoning can also happen quickly and easily, so be sure to wear sunscreen or a hat.
Venus enters Cancer
At 03:32 the planet of love, Venus, enters Cancer. Venus in Cancer is cozy and close-knit. Protective. Pleasure in familiar relationships. Relish in that which is material and shifting. Venus is in Cancer until 11 August.
Mercury opposite Pluto 27º24’
At 09:00 the planet of communication, Mercury, faces off with Pluto, the planet of secrets. There’s an understanding, and possibly an expressed relinquishment, of power dynamics. Are we saying what we think the boss wants to hear? Once you understand something’s worth, once you see the boring little man that is the Wizzard of Oz, maybe you might decide it’s not all it’s cracked out to be.
Moon enters Aries
At 13:17 the moon enters Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. Initiations, but we’re in it for the long haul. This is especially so as the moon in Aries creates a last quarter aspect, reflecting an event on earth. Motivation is there. Fighting for peace.

Mercury enters Leo
At 14:34 the planet of communication, Mercury, enters Leo. Mercury in Leo has much more to say than it has over the last three weeks of Mercury in Cancer. Now that we know how we feel, self expression is coming more easily. There are some sassy, spicy hot takes boiling up over the coming weeks. Insulting someone’s pride will not get you very far. That’s probably one of the Laws of Power.

Sun opposite Pluto 27º21’
Well, well, well. At 03:38 the sun faces off with power planet Pluto, revealing the termite eaten, rotten wooden frames that hold up The Tower. This is an end of a regime, an end of a power dynamic, an opportunity to reclaim your own autonomy once you see your place inside of the sinister Rube Goldfarb machine.
Moon enters Taurus
At 20:22 the moon enters grounded Taurus. While the moon in Taurus is usually a good time to bathe, eat, sleep, get yourself recharged, the moon in Taurus meets with Mars! This can have people feeling defensive, or needing to batten up the hatches, or whatever they say. Fortifying the walls will do you good. Protect your peace.

Sun enters Leo
Leo season begins at 22:06 when the sun enters its home sign Leo. In Leo, the sun can shine at its steadiest, can be seen at its most constant. A strong, impenetrable sense of self that sustains itself, and also sustains others.
This makes me wonder if the zodiac in the Southern Hemisphere should be inverted, because Leo season happening in the dead middle of winter makes absolutely zero sense, if one is to practice the tropical zodiac in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s controversial to suggest a flipped zodiac, but some astrologers practice flipped nodes in the Southern Hemisphere, because technically that’s where the nodes of the moon are on that part of earth. Can we please get a “I use my own brain and don’t just repeat what everyone else says” in the chat? 🐑

The moon enters Gemini
At 07:10 the moon enters logical air sign Gemini. Touch some papers, read some books. With Mercury in Leo this can be a critical time to define and understand yourself, objectively.
Mercury trine Jupiter 08º40’
At 19:52 Mercury harmonizes with optimistic Jupiter. Wisdom and knowledge synthesize. People know what to do, to fight for what is good and just. This could, however, also reflect overthinking, overestimation, and a little bit of arrogance. Being self-assured is helpful. Confidence in one’s ideas and beliefs gets you far. Nothing stopping one from learning and growing their educational brain. However, double check the measurements before getting too far ahead of yourself.
