The big cosmic event this month is Uranus turning retrograde on July 1, 2009 for five months. Uranus rules rebellion and change, while retrogrades illuminate your inner life. Put the two together, and watch your inner rebel make an appearance that changes your life.
Have you been tolerating things about your relationship or job – or even yourself – that aren’t in your best interests, like a negative pattern or attitude? Perhaps you’re just feeling stuck in a rut. Retrograde Uranus can act as a stick of dynamite that finally blows the top off your patience so that you take action. It might not be comfortable or convenient, but it will help you eliminate blocks that hinder your growth.
So expect some Uranian fireworks between now and December!
Venus and Mars transiting through Taurus from July 1-4, 2009 create a double dose of sensuality in relationships – especially for Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Financial power is also magnified, so look for moneymaking opportunities. Then flirting gets energized when Venus enters witty Gemini on the 5th, which will make Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius especially lucky in love. Mars joins Venus in Gemini on the 11th, and this favors online matches, networking, travel, and promoting your skills. Venus entering Cancer on the 31st casts an aura of love over family activities, and may give you the urge to redecorate your home. Mercury entering Cancer on the 3rd also emphasizes discussions and decisions concerning your home life. Next, Mercury entering dramatic Leo on the 17th favors relationship discussions and the promotion of your creative projects. The Sun further energizes romance and creativity when it transits into Leo on the 22nd.
Planets in motion
A whopping dose of retrograde energy from Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto turns our focus inward. The benefit from retrogrades is that they help sweep away your personal cobwebs – like negativity, habits, and bad relationships – that keep you from growing. Retrograde Jupiter will illuminate your future path by expanding your vision of how good life can be. If you lack confidence in being able to create prosperity and happiness, it’s Jupiter’s job to help you see beyond your limitations. Jupiter will also help align your spiritual beliefs with your true purpose. Retrograde Uranus, as stated above, will activate your rebellious side so you can make some needed changes. Retrograde Neptune will expose things you’ve been in denial about in your life, so you can deal with them. And retrograde Pluto will help transform your inner life by healing emotional wounds. It can also affect your outer life by transforming how you deal with debt and other shared resources.
The Full Moon eclipse in Capricorn on the 7th energizes the urge to build a better foundation in your relationship and career. Capricorn is, after all, the sign of stability, duty, and commitment. It’s time to take action on your goals. What’s more, a trine from Saturn can bring financial and career opportunities. Just expect some unpredictability in your plans around the 7th due to the eclipse. Next, the New Moon eclipse on the 21st takes place in the last degree of Cancer. This influence brings a new cycle of energy to home activities, but the eclipse can heighten emotionalism, so strive to stay centered in stressful situations.
