This month you may experience energies of faith and spiritual development, enlightenment, deep contemplation, healing, inner strength, and good fortune. I can’t help but think about where my own journey took me last July: I went on my first adult vacation! I went to a quiet town in the Catskills in upstate New York and stayed in a beautiful, enchanted mountain house, where for the week I felt like I was living my best life! I was transported to another time and what felt like another country and enjoyed hiking, horseback riding, live music every night, campfires, my first drive-in movie, and breathtaking views. On my last day there I hiked up to the top of the tower on the top of the mountain and watched the sunrise. It was literally like I was watching heaven on Earth, and it was just me and Spirit. Even though this July may look different for me than last year, I can look back at that time and truly see how all those things I did last year developed me into who I am now. Take a moment this month to honor who you are and all you have been through that has led you to this moment in time. And even if it looks different from someone else’s journey, that is okay, because your journey is the best journey for you. Try to see it with fresh eyes and a new spiritual perspective this month.
We begin this month with four planets in Retrograde! Jupiter, Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto Retrogrades will all be felt this month in the background. Keep in mind that the post-shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde will be felt until July 7th. This is a great time to fully step into who you truly are, even if it is scary. Spirit encourages you to feel the fear and do it anyway! So have courage and be bold this month. Determination looks different for everyone, from a few steps to a marathon. Celebrate your victories along the way.
Spirit’s advice this month is to choose to participate in your life every day this month, have bold faith and trust in your own inner abilities to guide you along your path. Taking bold action allows the Universe to act boldly on our own behalf to answer our prayers.
Here are some other essential things to be on the lookout for this month:
July 10th—New Moon in Cancer: The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. This New Moon is a great opportunity to get in touch with your deepest emotions, to bring them to the surface, and give them a chance to heal and shine. The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and will also affect your feminine energy, so this may be a good time to balance your masculine and feminine energies. Follow the link.
July 24th—Full Moon in Aquarius: The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Buck Moon because the male buck deer would begin to grow their new antlers at this time of year. This Moon has also been known as the Thunder Moon and the Hay Moon. Spirit shows me that this is going to be a powerful release day for many of us. For those who have gone through the stages of a butterfly and are now out of the cocoon period, this is a great time to truly release and honor the lessons and blessings that your journey has brought to you thus far. With this Full Moon, don’t be afraid to look at the hard stuff, no matter how big or small. You may find that this Full Moon requires some patience and forgiveness for yourself and those around you. Be sure to drink extra water at this time, perhaps with a splash of lemon or lime.
July 28th / 29th—Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower: The Delta Aquarids is an average shower that can produce up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from July 12th to August 23rd. It peaks this year on the night of July 28th and the morning of July 29th. The nearly Full Moon will be a problem this year. Its glare will block most of the faintest meteors. But if you are patient, you should still be able to catch a few good ones. The best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius but can appear anywhere in the sky.
My work views all the elements of being a human—the physical, emotional, and mental—as deeply intertwined… It is from this whole-person perspective that we can best identify the underlying causes of our struggles and empower ourselves to heal.
