What cosmic influences the Cosmos has on the menu for us in July and how to make the best use of the energies available.
Themes for July
As we head into July we are still very much in the process of integrating the download of high frequency light that poured into the earth over the summer solstice period.
As these transformative energies continue to be absorbed and integrated, changes are being instigated at a deep level not only within us but also within the Earth herself.
Feeling unusually spaced out or ungrounded seems to have been common experiences for many sensitive people over the last few weeks, so if this was your experience too you can feel comforted that you were not alone!
Checking in daily with your energetic alignment and connection to the Earth is always good, but especially necessary in these times where rapid change and adjustment are increasingly required of us.
Planetary Alignments and Cosmic Influences
Looking at the upcoming planetary alignments and cosmic influences there seems to be potential for a considerable amount of emotional intensity this month
So, what does the cosmos have in store for us energetically over the next few weeks? Well, looking at the upcoming planetary alignments and cosmic influences there seems to be potential for a considerable amount of emotional intensity this month. This is particularly the case around the full moon on July 9th and again on the new moon on July 23rd.
At the full moon, the Sun and Mars in Cancer will oppose the Moon and Pluto in Capricorn. This is uncomfortable astrology since it is likely to bring deep and intense feelings to the surface as well as highlighting any unresolved polarity issues in our lives, work or relationships. Pluto’s focus is ultimately transformation but it will tend to achieve this by taking us through a process of ‘death & rebirth’ if we resist letting go of what is no longer of use.
Placed as it is in this month’s astrological line up we could find ourselves feeling the influence of Pluto’s transformational focus very strongly, so try to go with the flow as much as you can.
The Influence of Cancer
All the other planetary activity this month is set against the backdrop of the inflowing energies from the constellation of Cancer, represented in western astrology by the sign of the crab. The watery, intuitive, nurturing energies of Cancer bring an emphasis to those areas of life that relate to ‘home’ and ‘family’ and as always, their influence will be multi-layered.
At an everyday level, we might find our attention taken to the home we live in and the family that we are connected to through birth, marriage etc. At another level, this energy might bring a focus to the need for us to take greater responsibility for the Earth, our planetary ‘home’ and for our connection to the collective human ‘family’.
In the Ancient Wisdom Teachings Cancer is considered to be the gateway through which souls originally entered into physical incarnation so each year this energy also brings us the potentiality of ‘rebirth’ or a new starting point. Use the watery nature of the extra Cancerian energy available to us this month to help you flow smoothly through any difficult emotions or challenging transformational experiences that might come your way as you ‘rebirth’ yourself this month.
By its very nature water is fluid, flexible & powerful and can be relied upon to always find a way around any obstacles it comes up against.
