Expect to be feeling thin skinned and extra-sensitive as Sun squares Chiron while Venus/Mars in Leo intensify the harsh Saturn/Uranus clash across Aquarius/Taurus. Outside events-such as the North American heat dome- are making each of us realise what really matters, so that we adjust our values and former sense of entitlement to the Earth’s resources. Keep your feet firmly on the ground. Make the care of your physicality, your personal ecology and stability your main priority.
The Cancer New Moon on July 10th collaborates with Jupiter and Neptune retrograde in oceanic, mystical Pisces – amplifying your emotional intuitive, sensory and somatic feeling/body states and awareness. As the New Moon opposes Pluto in Capricorn, old scar tissue will re-surface for permanent healing. Remind yourself that your body tells the truth and is the vector for your enlightenment.
During the turbulence of these intensifying Chaos Nodes, personal neutrality and consistency are your super powers. Get clarity on what stays and what goes in your chosen reality.
Chandra Symbol for New Moon
An opossum comes out into the moonlight.
“Inside-out. Massively vulnerable and strictly unreachable. A verge in destiny where the innermost soul is revealing its true colours in a magical display. However, it is a ritual performance and heavily guarded and veiled all the while. You give a glimpse of the unarmoured underbelly, yet mask so many things in order to make this excruciating edge safe and secure and something to dream into at many angles, but remain alone within. Becoming ready to open to threshold states, vastly afraid of myriad dangers. And therefore, placing a small part of yourself into the light of the shared arena while retaining control over the rest. A testing of the waters with such underlying super-sensitivity that there will be a lot more hiding than seeking before you discover how to put yourself forward freely, face the shadow of your fears, and live to tell about it.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: July 4-11, 2021
As your personal ruler Mars clashes with hard headed Saturn and unpredictable Uranus, sparks may fly. You hate feeling restricted and current circumstances could do just that. Mars in fiery Leo is sitting at the very apex of your chart along with Venus for the first time since 2015.This is a two -edged sword. On the one hand, you’ll feel a surge of momentum to do something-anything-to break the logjam; on the other, people will be unreceptive to your demands. Tread diplomatically. This applies especially to your closest relationship as your partner may pull the rug out from under your feet by acting out of character. At Friday’s New Moon in fellow water sign Cancer, take refuge in in the big picture by making plans to broaden your horizons.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: July 4-11, 2021
With your personal planet Jupiter traveling backwards with Neptune in your angle of home and family, it’s almost impossible to make any hard and fast plans. Linear time-tabling simply won’t work-like it or not, you’re going to have to go with the flow. If you’re feeling stuck and unable to take a trip to a faraway place- travel being like oxygen for most Sagittarians- do the next best thing and get out and about where you live. With both Mars and Venus together in fellow Fire sign Leo this month, ring the changes where you can by being as spontaneous as possible. Friday’s New Moon in emotional Cancer is a good time to check in with yourself, to see if the dreams you’re chasing still have juice or if it’s time to create a new blueprint for happiness.
Breaking up your routines.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: July 4-11, 2021
Until July 22, the Sun is lighting up your opposite sign of Cancer, giving all your relationships a boost. Whether it’s business or personal, events will remind you that people matter above everything else. The New Moon on Friday 11th in this same angle opposes Pluto in Capricorn and it will be very obvious who is for you and who is against you. Time to leave any toxic relationships behind permanently. Recognise them by feeling drained rather than energised when in their company and by imbalanced dynamics of give and take. If money is in the equation, Venus and Mars together in Leo for the first time since 2015 could bring some heartening news.
Changing of the guard.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: July 4-11, 2021
If the first week of July has been rather fraught, blame it on restrictive Saturn in your sign at odds with Mars/Venus and unpredictable Uranus. Clashes of opinion and authority could have sprung up out of nowhere. Happily, this week as Venus moves closer to Mars, your most significant relationships grow closer, warmer and more open hearted. But don’t wait for people to come to you, take action, issue invitations, plan a trip, book a table for a meal out. Friday’s New Moon in Cancer nudges you to open to fresh experiences by clearing and de-cluttering your workplace and home. It’s time for a literal clean slate.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: July 4-11, 2021
If you’re a typical sensitive Piscean, you’ll be feeling the wave of dissolution as Jupiter and Neptune moving backwards through you own sign. This is a time of endings, when the ties that bind loosen and drift away, when what used to seem important loses its attraction. Let go of what needs to be released, the better to notice the green shoots of the new. Music, art, romance, ancestry and emotional healing are ways to make direct contact with something much bigger than you are. Just trust and follow your impeccable instincts. The Cancerian New Moon on Friday 11th is in a compatible Water sign in your 5th House of leisure, pleasure, love affairs, children and self-expression. Try to take some time out to enjoy experiencing what makes you feel most alive.
Enjoying the here and now.
