Now for this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 29th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini and VoC until 7:31am EDT; at that time, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Wednesday late morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say to (and about) us, so be kind to yourself and others. Emotional safety is important to us at this time: We like connecting to the familiar, home or family becomes our sanctuary.

Nurture yourself and others, but remember: Make sure your glass is filled before letting others drink from it — otherwise we might start resenting others for draining our energies

Monday late afternoon, we are invited to make adjustments and (as best as we can) find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. Make space both for healing around anger or self-identity and for taking care of emotional or family issues.

Monday early evening, brings an opportunity to connect to family (or friends that feel like family) and create breakthroughs around things that we enjoy through our five senses (e.g. food). This may also be a good time to find a unique or global approach on financial matters that bring us a sense of emotional security.

Monday evening, a challenging Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 7:14pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Friday evening (July 26th) on; it will be strong until Thursday evening (August 1st). Routines and plans — especially those connected with creative endeavors, children, romance, parties or sporting events — are quite likely to experience disruption, calling for flexibility and creative solutions.

During this transit, we feel a great need to make progress, as we feel quite restless — maybe even anxious — but if we’re unclear on what is in our best interest, we might focus on things that don’t serve us in the long run.

As best as you can, go with the flow and stay open to experiencing something new and wonderfully unexpected; if you can, put off making major decisions for the time being… “haste makes waste” during this aspect 😉

You can think of this as “reorganizing” time — like rearranging your furniture — try not to resist the reorganization. Enjoy the ride… and remember: it only feels uncomfortable because it’s new and different. Could you allow yourself to be comfortable with being uncomfortable?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…
