Happy 4th of July as America moves forward with less restrictions (Saturn) and more freedom (Uranus) as Saturn moves in retrograde motion and separates from its square to Uranus.

It’s time to celebrate with family and friends as the new Moon on July 9th is in the sign of Cancer, the sign affiliated with family, patriotism, real estate, mood swings, ocean waters and feeding others with food.

The new Moon is at 18 degrees (9:17PM EDT) with easy nice flowing aspects as both Sun and Moon trine Neptune and sextile Uranus showing creative energies as well as spiritual experiences in deep silence through meditation practices.

A great time to jump start your spiritual life if you have been lazy about your daily practice of meditation and other techniques that purify the nervous system. Breathing techniques (Pranayama) are ideal for clearing out the moody and stuck emotional energies of Cancer.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in the sign of Cancer you are ready to start life filled with creativity and family peace of mind. However, with both Venus and Mars in Leo square to Uranus, unexpected changes in the area of romance for the sign of Leo could erupt. Breath my Lion friends.

Political leaders around the world initiating too much control over others will be challenged this month.

Aquarius is also harmed by this combination of Venus/Mars opposing Saturn in Aquarius. Where is the balance in your relationship’s? Time to become more practical if you have Aquarius energies active in your chart.

Grand trines on this new Moon Day also show good growth in the job market or at least a positive move forward. But tensions are building for those who are losing unemployment benefits in 26 states so far.

This new Moon is about how to take care of family matters and there is enough stress in this new Moon chart that shows pulling unemployment benefits for millions of families could drive stress levels through the roof. Look for legal issues between the people of each state and their governors this month.

The state of Indiana is the first state to overturn the Governor’s ruling to end unemployment and stop the misuse of power to protect those who really need pay their bills while looking for new work by September when federal unemployment benefits ends.

Family life is on the main menu of America from July 9th till July 23rd.

Mercury moves into the sign of Cancer on July 11th and those born under the signs of Cancer and Capricorn are aware of their thoughts and how they influence their lives.

This takes some of the spaced-out energy away from those with water element active in their birth charts. It helps Capricorn’s make choices more quickly. This energy runs till Mercury enters Leo on July 27th.

Venus enters Virgo on July 21st and gives those born under the sign of health and healing a chance to gain in abundance and romance. Venus helps attract more pleasant experiences to ones’ life. This energy runs till Venus enters Libra on August 16th. Enjoy your summer if you have Sun, Moon or rising in Virgo.

This is also good for healthcare workers who have felt left out as they should from getting a promotion for showing up to take care of those with covid problems. Risking their lives for others. The highest actions a human can take. Many nurses have felt used and abused as they should. What kind of a country are we anyhow?

Sun enters Leo on July 22nd. Happy birthday to those born under the sign of Leo.

The full Moon on the 23rd at 1 degree of Aquarius (10:37PM) sets up the opposite signs of Leo and Aquarius to find balance between giving and receiving. The affirmation for those with fixed qualities is, “I DESERVE TO GIVE AND RECEIVE IN ALL AREAS OF MY LIFE”.

The full Moon chart has less tensions than the new Moon for this month, but the Sun does oppose a Pluto in Capricorn conjunct Moon in Aquarius. This shows issues that have been hidden (Pluto) by the government coming to the public’s (Moon) awareness. I think this is the UFO information that is starting to become public.

The sign of Aquarius is affiliated with UFO’s, astrology, inventors, humanitarian groups, doing things their own way or a sense of individual empowerment and fulfilling wishes and dreams.

Gathering in large festive environments needs balance here with Leo opposing Aquarius and Pluto. Pluto is one of the planets affiliated with death. The virus and gun violence has been an issue for months if not years so we may see a return to some cautionary boundaries such as mask wearing continue IF deaths are on the rise from large gatherings.

I don’t even want to mention guns in the wrong hands in large groups. Let’s put out the white light of love and compassion for all of humanity from July 23rd till August 8th.

Creative energies are high from the 23rd till August 8th and most of the month of August. Concerts, festivals, carnivals will be busy this summer but trying to find employees to service customers is the big issue as we have heard over the news.

Pulling unemployment is not going to drive people to go to work. Americans have been through so much stress over the last 14 months. Families want to be together before the return to normal in class environment starts by the end of August AND many have saved up some of the benefits, they have already received to carry them through July and August.

It is time to pay people better wages. You cannot live on $10 or $12 dollars and hr. and expect to feed your family and no human deserves to work 3 jobs to keep up with cost of living. Let America Senators work hard since the average yearly salary is $175,000.

Individual freedom verses government rules and regulations that are communist or totalitarian will be challenged this month. Look to North Korea having serious problems as food shortage is making its people question why so much money goes into a child leader who wants to play with bombs and tanks at the cost of feeding his own people.

Jupiter will be at zero degrees of Pisces in retrograde motion moving back into Aquarius by the 28th, so whatever Pisces was thinking and acting on over the last couple of months will reactivate itself when Jupiter returns to Pisces in the last few days of 2021 and gives a green light to the sign of Pisces for 2022. Good luck is alive in 2022 for Pisces.

Mercury enters Leo on July 27th and Jupiter retrogrades back into Aquarius on the 28th. The signs of Leo and Aquarius are wanting to find balance between individual needs and the needs of the collective.

Leo wants to entertain and attract attentions while Aquarius wants to be a part of a group and not as needy about being the center of attentions. The integration between good leadership and collective efforts to benefit the world through creative solutions is at the top of the menu for those of you who have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in either Leo or Aquarius.

Mars enters Virgo on July 29th which gives more energy to those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Virgo.

Venus is still in Virgo till August 16th so having Mars and Venus in Virgo can attract abundance and love. Make sure you don’t spend too much money on things you don’t really need like an extra tattoo on your butt or an extra ounce of marijuana. Hmmm….

Have a great time this summer. Enjoy life and let go of any fear now that is stopping us from having fun and sharing joy. The world needs us to create joy not fear in order to heal past health issues that have been holding us back.
