Overview of the Planets and the Stars for Tuesday, July 10th


Jupiter stations and turns direct today after four months of retrograde motion (since March 9th). Gradually over the next few weeks, matters ruled by Jupiter will move forward more straightforwardly. Our confidence in ourselves and the universe builds. Our faith and perspective expand, although as this shift occurs, issues can seem larger than life, and with a Solar Eclipse happening in just two days, life can feel intense. This direct turn can feel refreshing at a time when there is quite a bit of retrograde activity, in general.

Also today, we’re finding value in organizing and structuring our home life or relationships with family. Responsibilities to our loved ones are clear, and we readily accept them. Even so, tendencies to possessiveness or excessive attachment can be aggravated right now, which can drive the people or things involved away. We might try to resist urges to stifle, control, and manipulate others.

The Moon spends the day in the sign of Gemini, and our curiosity knows few bounds.

The Moon is void from 4:00 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Neptune), until the Moon enters Cancer tomorrow, Wednesday, July 11th, at 1:59 PM EDT.
