In the waxing light of the Cancerian New Moon, this week the Sun in Cancer, backlit by spiritual Sun Sirius, reveals its esoteric soul purpose as the Gateway into and also the Gateway out of this Incarnation. The Cancer mantra is:” I build a lighted house and therein dwell”.
Is the house you are building a lighted house or is it a dark prison? Are you dwelling in all your rooms or only one? Are you living at Small -me personality level or living at the beck and call of your soul? The more lit your House/Soul, the more clearly you see through the illusions of Maya.
On Sunday July 11th, the Guide of Souls Mercury enters Cancer aligning with Jupiter in Pisces to allow an inspiring glimpse of the big picture. Capture your visions, dreams, insights and intuitions as they are amplified by Venus conjunct Mars in Leo on Tuesday and the Sun in Cancer trine limitless Neptune in Pisces on Thursday. Paint them, draw them, dance them, mind map them, sculpt them…..whatever embeds and imprints them in your heart, your psyche, your soma and your memory banks.
As the Sun opposes Pluto and squares Eris on Saturday 17th, commit to lighting all the rooms in your psyche.

“Heightened perception exquisitely poised, brilliant and as fast as can be. You have the genius of seeing things, knowing things, and being there. You bring all this through with a fine-tuned ability to land in the situation at hand with only as much as can be worked with. You are guided to follow an extraordinary course through the world, which features the perfect opportunities to tap what is inside in so many different ways. The blessings, the grace, the heart’s wonder are full. As this way of being ripens and matures, you begin to draw out from others the same kinds of marvels and wonders and to make it possible for the vibrancies to spread and grow. With a wildfire capacity to spread good news and bring realisations wherever they are needed, you work with ever more effortless capacity to bring this world alive.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: July 11-18, 2021
Last Saturday’s New Moon in Cancer pressed a restart button in terms of your direction. Spend some time thinking about what and who really matters to you-as opposed to what’s supposed to matter. Then look at how you actually invest your time, love and effort over the course of a week or a month…. does it match your priorities? If not, what are you going to do about it? You might discover that you’re adrift without a compass, that old dreams seem to have lost their juice without you noticing. If so, take heart -the rare meeting of Venus and Mars in Leo on July 13th will lift your spirits and infuse you with some exciting ideas to explore.
Drawing yourself a new map.

As the Sun travels across your opposite sign of Cancer until July 22nd, relationships resume their rightful place right in the centre of your life. Hopefully, last Saturday’s New Moon revived a partnership or rekindled a love affair. If not, this week, when the Sun opposes eliminator Pluto in your own sign of Capricorn, you may decide to call time on one association -personal or professional. Do it quickly and cleanly-no second thoughts. Your spirits will rise on July 13th when the lovers Venus and Mars merge in fiery Leo for the first time since 2015.It’s a day for good news, for spreading some sunshine and being glad simply to be alive.
Heart before head.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: July 11-18, 2021
This week has a lovely warm glow about it as-for the first time since 2015- the lovers Venus and Mars merge in heart-centred Leo, your opposite sign. They will remain there until July 22nd, giving you plenty of time to tell those you love how much you care. Better than telling them is showing them by arranging something they’d love, perhaps a trip or an outing to one of their favourite places. With the Sun travelling through Cancer on the heels of last Saturday’s New Moon, press the refresh button on where you live. De-clutter, clear your work space, open the windows and throw out or sell on anything that no longer reflects the life you lead now. Look at your wellbeing and fitness and make some overdue tweaks.
A clean slate.
