The month of July opens and closes with a Full Moon – a Thunder Moon on the 1st, and a Blue Moon on the 31st – making this month particularly intense and a powerful window for transformation and change. On July 1, the Moon is opposite the sign it rules, Cancer, from where the Sun is fully illuminating it. This sign is overcharged by the presence of Sun conjunct Mars. The Moon, at the other end of the axis, is conjunct Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. We will be seeing family structures being challenged and shaken up, which can bring a material impact, including on the home as a place of dwelling or family reunions. Sudden changes and events regarding family status, real state and inheritances are likely, especially if related to the mother or the maternal family. Secrets may surface or we could have insights related to family, mother, motherhood, childhood, and karmic connections. The Tower card is part of the energetic picture of the month, and comes to reinforce its dynamics.
Emotions will be running high and anger could be flying all around. Emotional outlets will be found in excessive talking and arguments that could lead to breakups and the cutting of ties, since Mercury in Gemini sextiles Jupiter conjunct Venus in Leo and Uranus in Mars, forming a kite as it opposes Pallas retrograde in Sagittarius. There is some danger here since each person will tend to see only their side and think they are right, especially when money is involved. We will be willing to defend our positions no matter what, and will not be afraid of speaking our minds. There is also a tendency of exaggerating along with some explosiveness and impulsiveness. If real disruption happens, there is also potential for reconstruction. This month might feel like a long process of readjustments, emotionally difficult but necessary, that could engender important changes and open up new beginnings. Changes in career are also possible, especially in family business or in those based at home.
