We could experience a bit of an ego boost in areas where we’ve managed to remain considerate, understanding or possibly cautious. Sun (ego, identity) will exit domestic Cancer on Wednesday July 22, to enter into the passionate realm of Leo. On Thursday July 23, Mercury (thoughts, communications) will exit Cancer, also entering Leo. In the fiery weeks ahead, we’ll proudly lead forward, fearlessly communicating from the heart.
My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage. Aunt Frances, Practical Magic
Last Saturday, Venus entered analytical Virgo, and this Saturday July 25, Venus will station retrograde. Where we’ve been investing ourselves, in regards to values, love and money (ruled by Venus), will temporarily pause during the next few weeks. Growth is halted in personal development, relationships, love or money situations. While it wont make much sense to release what/who you’ve held onto for such a very long time… it also won’t make sense to continue grasping if there really nothing there to hold onto. To be replenished in this drought, re-evaluate and re-estimate by rcognizing what is supportive, dedicated and real.
You need to associate with people that inspire you, people that challenge you to rise higher, people that make you better. Don’t waste your valuable time with people that are not adding to your growth. Your destiny is too important. Joel Osteen
And shortly after Venus stations retrograde, there’s a collision between Cancer Mars (desires, energy) and Aries Uranus (awakening, change). This turbulent energy can influence erratic behavior, fiery accidents, unpredictable anger, electrical fires, explosive truth, as well as an increase in electrical and wind storms. Use preventive measures to stay aware, safe and covered.
I fear being like everyone I hate, I fear failure, I fear losing control. I love balancing between chaos and control with everything I do. I always have a fear of going one way or another, getting lost in something, or losing everything to get lost in. And I fear being a completely acceptable sheep in society. Marilyn Manson
On Sunday July 26, Uranus will also station retrograde – along with retrograding Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron. Uranus (rebellion, freedom) retrogrades for the rest of the year, which slowly, but intensely helps us to re-identify with our most unique and truth – so that we may rediscover our true authentic self.
