July 2022 Astrological Forecast
July 1 2022 Mercury Enters Gemini
Mercury enters it's own sign. Mercury represents logic, reasoning, analytical thinking, communication and decision making. Gemini is a charming, talkative, flexible and adaptive sign which means that Mercury does well here because it feels comfortable and like it's goals are supported in Gemini. Mercury in Gemini can feel a little bit scattered with lots on the go but there can also be lots left undone or a superficiality to this influence. Mercury in Cancer later this month will feel more intuitive but for now the focus is on logic and facts in our communication.
July 12 2022 Retrograde Saturn Enters Capricorn
Saturn has been retrograde for a while now and will reenter Capricorn for a few months. Saturn represents maturity, discipline and responsibility while the sign of Capricorn represents maturity, determination and hard work. The similar goals of the planet and the sign are harmonious. The house this is occurring in in your chart will feel the results of this slow, serious and diligent influence. It will be Saturn's last retrograde into Capricorn and it represents finishing up the lessons you spent the last couple of years learning. Saturn in Capricorn corelated with Covid-19 almost exactly if you look at the sidereal zodiac so thinking back over that time period will give you some clues. Saturn in Capricorn also has to do with setting boundaries, if this occurred in your 2nd house these could have been boundaries around money, in your 4th house it may have been boundaries around your home, family or mother, in your 6th house maybe it meant you had to set limits and boundaries on yourself around your health or daily routines. Saturn reentering the sign may bring up some of these issues a final time to test you and make sure you've learned your lessons around this house before moving on.
July 12, 2022 Venus Enters Gemini
Venus, the planet of love, lust, conveniences, art, beauty and material convenience enters Gemini. There will be a curiosity about all things Venusian and it's a wonderful time to go to museums, parties, festivals and experience life and then talk about it. This is a time when posting on social media about the wonderful things you've done can feel particularly satisfying because it straddles the two pretty well.
July 16 2022 Sun Enters Cancer
Sun represents the divine masculine, the Moon which rules Cancer, represents the divine feminine. The Sun will be 12th from it's own sign making him a little introspective and reserved here. There is both emotional vulnerability and an emphasis on self preservation during this time. The sun lights up the area of the chart it is in and brings confidence to this part of the chart, whatever house this falls in your focus will be on nurturing tenderly and will elicit a sense of pride.
July 16 2022 Mercury Enters Cancer
The planet of communication enters the sign of the moon. This brings a more intuitive overtone to our communication and a sense that we're almost responding to the feelings we're picking up on from others in conversation rather than the words they spoke. Just go with it, if you try to get too logical during this time you will muddy the waters of communication and end up more confused. Trust your intuition.
July 28 2022 Jupiter Retrograde in Pisces
Jupiter is in his own sign here too. Jupiter represents the teachers and mentors in our lives and Pisces being the 12th sign of the zodiac has a very dreamy and esoteric quality to it. When a planet goes retrograde you can almost guarantee that the influence of that planet is going to be felt more strongly.
July 31 2022 Mercury Enters Leo
It has been a busy month for Mercury, the planets of speed is moving at lightning speed and you can expect the areas of your chart ruled by Mercury to have faced rapid change through the month of July. Communication is now bold and creative. Criticism is not well received during this transit and there can be a tendency towards exaggeration or boasting so take what others say with a grain of salt during this transit.
