Weekly Astrology: July 20-26, 2014

Damn that planetary traffic jam!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of new moon, leo, astrology
Planets are colliding every which way this week! Retrograde, direct, ingresses and lunations — oh my!

Sunday, July 20: Saturn Direct in Scorpio

On Sunday, Saturn turns direct in Scorpio after having been retrograde for several months. You can expect forward movement in professional matters now, as Saturn is naturally connected to business and career.

Monday, July 21: Uranus Retrograde 

Then, on Monday, Uranus turns retrograde and will remain in this phase for several months. During this time you may notice your urge for freedom and individuation pressing you to make a change. Ready or not, here it comes!

Tuesday, July 22: Mercury in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn; Sun in Leo

On Tuesday, Mercury in Cancer will oppose Pluto, reinforcing the mantra “knowledge is power.” Indeed, you may discover potent information on this day that has deep ramifications in a domestic or career matter. Also on Tuesday, the Sun will enter Leo, allowing all of us to shine a bright light on the pursuit of pleasure. 

Thursday, July 24: Venus in Cancer trine Neptune; Sun conjunct Jupiter; Mercury in Cancer square Uranus; Mercury trine Saturn

On Thursday, it might feel like there’s a planetary traffic jam. First, Venus in Cancer will trine Neptune, allowing unconditional love to flow. The Sun will also conjunct Jupiter, opening the door for a lucky break in a creative endeavor, your love life or relationship with a child.

On this day, Mercury in Cancer will also go from squaring Uranus to trining Saturn. If you put your foot in your mouth, you’ll definitely be able to “save” yourself from any communication fail. 

Friday, July 25: Mars enters Scorpio (Until 9/13)

On Friday, Mars will enter Scorpio, where he remains until September 13. This once-in-two-year transit will set the stage for you to connect with the depths of your personal power. Will and determination will be strong, and once you decide to do something, nothing — and no one — will steer you off course. 

Saturday, July 26: New Moon in Leo

Last but not least, on Saturday there will be a delightful New Moon in Leo that is doubly-blessed, thanks to Jupiter also being in the same sign. Expect a fresh start in romance or your creative drive. Cultivate a new hobby and live life through the eyes of a child. Carefree is where you’re meant to be!

Your Planet Tracker for July 14th: Mercury In Cancer, July 12 to July 31

Planet Tracker

Mercury in Cancer

Jul 12, 2014 to Jul 31, 2014

 

 

Mercury is associated with intellect and Cancer with feelings. This combination offers us an opportunity to perceive and communicate our emotions more directly at this time. Conversation is likely to be more personal than usual, with a greater capacity for intimacy. However, objectivity may suffer as awareness is filtered through the powerful issues of security, family and safety.

Every astrological pattern offers its challenges and opportunities. In fact, they are really two faces of the same thing. In this case, the challenge is to articulate emotions without being overcome by them. The opportunity is to soften the separating aspects of the logical mind to connect with others in a more personal fashion.

Cancer is a water sign. The mysteries of water can not be spoken, only felt. Mercury’s passage here does not erase the rational aspects of perception, but it broadens them to include information that can not be put into words. Know that silence can be full of meaning. This time is a reminder that real listening is done with the heart, as well as with the ears.

Mercury in Cancer shows up in the charts of conservatives like Nancy Reagan, Bob Dole and Pat Boone. Prince Charles, a watery Scorpio, has met this placement with both Princess Diana and Camilla Parker Bowles.

David Duchovny and Isabella Rossellini speak with Mercury in Cancer soulfulness, as do storytellers Bill Cosby and Arlo Guthrie. Cat Stevens’ Mercury in Cancer helped lead him to Islam, while Salman Rushdie’s has led him away.

Cancer adores tradition, the home and the garden. So, it’s not surprising that food, style and do-it-yourself goddess Martha Stewart was also born with Mercury in this sign.

What Do The Planets Have In Store for You for July 13 – 19

Weekly Astrology: July 13-19, 2014

Get ready for a roaring good time…

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of venus, jupiter, cancer, astrology
This will be a grand week, with both of the benefic planets (Jupiter and Venus) moving into new signs.

Sunday, July 13: Mercury in Cancer and Venus in Gemini trine Mars in Libra

On Sunday, Mercury will change signs first, moving into receptive Cancer until July 31. Communication becomes personal with Mercury in Cancer, and your memory will be razor sharp. Don’t be afraid to make decisions with your heart and your mind. Venus in Gemini and Mars in Libra will also be at a perfect trine on this day, allowing love to flow.

Wednesday, July 16: Jupiter in Leo

On Wednesday, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will move into Leo, where he’ll remain until August of 2015! This will be an incredible year to shine your most creative self. Love, pleasure and children will bring you extra joy and blessings with Jupiter in Leo. Open your heart!

Friday, July 18: Venus in Cancer

On Friday, Venus enters tender Cancer and remains here until August 12. Matters of the heart become deeply personal and security driven with Venus in Cancer. If someone feels like family, you’re more likely to be willing to nourish a relationship. If your security buttons are triggered, however, you’ll retreat into your shell.

Saturday, July 19: Mercury in Cancer trine Neptune and Sun in Cancer square Mars

On Saturday, Mercury will trine Neptune, allowing imagination to flow. Work on a creative writing, music, art or a film project now. Intuition will also be heightened. Use it! The Sun in Cancer will also rub elbows with Mars so be careful not to act against your own interests.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Sunday, July 6th

One piece of good news, early today, is that Mercury is beginning to speed up in its daily motion as it is going to travel nearly one-half of one degree of the zodiac today. [Mercury can move as fast as 2+ degrees in one 24-hour time-period.] Therefore, communications, transportation and travel plans, as well as business and trade are looking more favorable for the most part — particularly as the Moon in Libra forms a trine of 120-degrees to Mercury in Gemini (3:54AM). However, the lunar orb meets up with a temporary tough opponent in Jupiter as these two celestial bodies form an abrasive square of 90-degrees (8:32AM) — a caustic aspect that also begins a 4+ hour void lunar cycle that lasts until 12:35PM when the Moon enters the mysterious waters of Scorpio. Meanwhile, Venus — which was very active three days ago in making powerful alignments with Jupiter and Pluto — is once again on the bandwagon. This time lovely Venus squares off with Pallas (6:41PM) while forming a supportive, 60-degree contact with revelatory Uranus (11:50PM). The Venus-Pallas altercation can make it more difficult to solve problems completely for the moment while the more positive Venus-Uranus interaction can assist you in tuning into your fertile intuition and genius. In addition, Venus is now energizing 17 degrees of Gemini (into a good portion of tomorrow) and this degree of the zodiac is where the Heliocentric Orbit of Venus is located in its northern node. Thus, anyone feeling an extra special kinship with Venus should strengthen his or her affirmations, meditations, and visualization exercises tonight to bring more love, beauty, joy, happiness and goodwill into the world. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Mercury Direct

Mercury Direct

Kiss retrograde goodbye! Planet Mercury is moving direct!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of mercury retrograde, mercury, astrology

If you’ve spent the last three weeks or so feeling mentally scrambled, misunderstood or just plain indecisive, relief is near. That’s because Mercury, the planet that rules the mind, is turning direct on July 1, 2014, after having gone through another one of its retrograde phases.

So, what does it mean when Mercury goes direct?

When Mercury is not operating smoothly there can be plenty of mishaps related to anything ruled by Mercury — whether its transportation, commerce or communication. Now that Mercury has stationed direct, it will need a few days to regulate its orbit and then you’ll be good to go. Any delay, frustration or confusion surrounding Mercury-ruled matters will soon find resolution.

A planet changing motion is a potent phenomenon. Remember, Mercury has been out of its usual forward orbit for three weeks, so turning direct again will not be as easy as declaring “On your mark, get set, go!” and watching Mercury zoom out. Ahhh, if only it were that simple.

What really happens when a planet moves from retrograde to direct motion is more akin to waking up from a deep slumber. Mercury will need time to drink some cosmic coffee and fully regain consciousness.

Full speed ahead

It won’t be until Mercury reaches the degree where it originally turned retrograde and then passes it that you’ll know Mercury truly has its full strength back. That tends to take a couple of weeks. But don’t stress — this time frame is nothing at all like the Mercury Retrograde cycle.

In fact, now you’ll be ready to apply whatever it is you’ve learned during the retrograde period into your current reality. It only takes a few days of Mercury being back on track for you to notice the difference. From here on out the planet will get stronger every day!

What’s interesting is that while Mercury will need time to regulate its orbit, the very day of its stationing direct can be a potent time. It’s like Merc will be jolted awake for a short time (remember Mom screaming at you to wake up or you’ll be late for school?). During this day or even the next, it’s likely you’ll experience incredible clarity about whatever issues you’ve been grappling with during Mercury Retrograde.

Be patient, though … it will take just a little more time before you’re ready to execute your newfound lucidity with success.

In the meantime, now that Mercury is direct, over the next few days you are free to sign contracts, schedule vital meetings, have a significant conversation and make important decisions or purchases. Remain confident as you push ahead with anything that requires cerebral muscle.

Mercury finally has its mojo back!
