This Month in Astrology

On July 9th, the New Moon occurs in the sign of Cancer, prompting a new beginning. This is a time for feeding our foundation — all of that which we call home, including the foundation we’ve built inside ourselves, needs to be tended to and honored. It’s a time to recognize the importance of our family and our personal circle of friends and the security, sense of belonging, and safety we derive from them. We have the wherewithal and courage to pursue our desires and stick with our plans, but we should avoid jumping the gun. This New Moon is widely opposite Pluto and harmonizes with Neptune. Venus is applying to a conjunction to Mars in Leo, and we’re feeling confident and ready to create, despite some feelings that others or our relationships are standing in our way. Mercury leaves its post-retrograde shadow two days before this date.

Chiron turns retrograde on July 15th, and will remain retrograde until December 19th. This cycle is good for introspection and reassessing the mental and physical health programs in our lives. We tend to look within for healing with Chiron retrograde.

On July 23rd, a Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius, reminding us of our needs for friendship, community, as well as impartiality and objectivity. We cannot lose sight of our larger goals and our need to give back to the community or group that supports us. The Moon can feel a little stuck as it’s between Pluto and Saturn. Otherwise, it’s a period of discovering our need for others or for more community involvement.

On the 28th, retrograde Jupiter returns to the sign of Aquarius. Jupiter moved on from the sign when it entered Pisces on May 13th. However, Jupiter turned retrograde early in its transit of Pisces in June, and it’s now returning to finish up its transit of Aquarius until December 28th. Jupiter in Aquarius encourages us to expand our minds, tolerance, and sense of fairness. We’re seeking social reform and positive, humanitarian action. We value freedom, individuality, fellowship, and group goals and visions. Source, https://cafeastrology.com/thismonthinastrology.html


 

From Intuitive Astrology, Chiron Retrograde July-December 2021

Chiron enters retrograde on July 15, 2021, joining Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto. All of these cosmic bodies retrograde annually, so this energy is part of the natural rhythm we experience each year.

Chiron adding to the retrograde mix however, brings a new dynamic to work with and shifts its energy to the forefront. This is especially true the day Chiron goes Retrograde, and the day it stations direct, which occurs on December 19.


The day a planet goes retrograde and then direct again are the power days to watch, and a time where we can work with its energetic expression with greater ease.

Chiron is not technically a planet but an asteroid that orbits between Saturn and Uranus. Even though Chiron is not a planet, in astrology, it is still a significant cosmic energy to work with.

Chiron is a centaur, and the myth goes that Chiron was abandoned at birth and left to fend for itself. It was through this wound of abandonment and difficult upbringing that it was able to rise up and turn its wounds into powerful portals of healing.

It was Chiron’s wounds that paved the way for its role as a powerful healer, teacher, psychic, and philosopher. This is why Chiron is referred to as the wounded healer.

We all possess the same powers as Chiron. Inside each and every one of us, we have the ability to take our wounds and pain points and turn them into a source of power.

As the poet Rumi says- the wound is where the light enters you.

The position of Chiron between Saturn and Uranus is also significant to understanding the energy it brings.

Saturn is a very grounded, rooted energy, whereas Uranus is considered a planet of a higher vibration. Uranus’ energy can also bring about awakenings and the rise of kundalini energy.

Chiron can act as a bridge between these two states of being and is sometimes referred to as the Rainbow Bridge.

The Rainbow bridge signifies the linking between one state of consciousness and the next, and this idea is further amplified if we look to Egyptian Astrology.

In ancient Egyptian astrology, Chiron goes by another name- Anpu or Anubis, the god of the afterlife and lost souls.

A lot of the myths and legends that are used in Western Astrology can be traced back to Egyptian and Babylonian astrology, and Anubis can be seen as Chiron’s counterpart.

Just like Chiron, Anubis was abandoned as a child. It was through this painful upbringing that Anubis was also able to rise up into the noble profession of the Guardian of the Underworld.

It was the job of Anubis to welcome the newly dead to the underworld and to guide them as they transition to the afterlife.

It takes a special soul to be given such a position, and no doubt, it was Anubis’ own pain and suffering that allowed it to develop the compassion, discernment, and loyalty to walk souls through such a journey.

As Chiron or Anubis travels retrograde, we are able to go within to our own wounds and reflect on how we can use them as a source of power and healing.

This energy is not about obtaining a state of perfection through healing, rather it is about bringing acknowledgment and acceptance to our wounds in a way that allows us to access the wisdom they can bring.

Chiron doesn’t want us to heal because it will make us “better”. It wants us to learn how to source these wounds as powerful portals of wisdom, knowledge, and power. By extracting this information, we can step into a greater and fuller potential.


This level of healing work is about transcendence, rather than trying to “fix” ourselves in order to be worthy. We are already worthy, regardless of the wounds that live within.

This energy is especially amplified seeing as Chiron is currently in the sign of Aries, the headstrong ram.

With Chiron in Aries, we are even more supported to find the strength, confidence, and courage that can arise when we come face to face with our wounds and look at them not as pain points but as points of potential.

Chiron in Aries reminds us that it is far more beneficial to allow our wounds to inspire, motivate, and offer strength, rather than to think of them as something that slows us down or makes us inferior in any way.

Wounds are painful, and some wounds cut so deep that they never truly leave us, but this is ok. We don’t have to be a neatly wrapped package in order to lead the best life possible.

We can use this retrograde energy not to sugar-coat our wounds, but to recognize that just like Chiron and Anubis, our suffering very often can lead us to the path of our destiny.

Use this retrograde energy to reflect on what your wounds have taught you. Sit with your wounds and get to know them. See if you can release any judgments and just sit with any pain they bring up. As you get comfortable with this, see if you can reflect on what these wounds have taught you, how they have shaped you, and what wisdom they may have for you.

Open to the wisdom and potential that your wounds have to offer.

July 2021 Energy Report by Jennifer Hoffman

We’re turning a corner this month as we move into the second half of 2021. It has been quite a year with ongoing censorship, tyranny, and the challenge to personal freedoms that we have never experienced before. If we expected the density of 3D to give into to the light without a fight, we are seeing that this transition is not going to be made of the sweetness and light that we thought it would. Who would have thought that?

As I said in my 2021 predictions, 2021’s theme is energetic sovereignty and while it is our divine birthright, it is not a given, we have to be willing to stand up for it. In July we are challenged to rise to the occasion, to start our engines and leap out of the starting gate, marking our passage from intention to action by setting the tracks to remind us that our path is marked by our commitment to our own soul’s growth. It’s another month of action but now we are ready to go out into the world armed with determination, conviction, and commitment to our own light.

This is another year where the first half of the year will be different from the second half and we’re entering the second half now. If you feel like everything is a struggle right now, that’s because it is. The ‘dark side’ has been in control for a long time and it will not give up without a fight but that cannot deter us from forging onward and upward. Remember energy expansion is not linear, it is spherical. It expands in all directions which is why linear progress is not always obvious. Look in all directions to see where the light is shining brightly and transformation is occurring.

Nothing can stop the 3D/5D ascension integration and the light we carry from reaching even the darkest corners as the collective frequency and vibration continues to rise as humanity awakens to its divinity and the fulfillment of our 2021 mission, claiming our energetic sovereignty.

And whether your personal fight against the density of darkness is a critical family, disapproving children, friends who no longer speak to you or your own hesitation, anxiety, and doubt, July is a clarion call to bold action and strong confidence. So let’s take it beyond the limits and see how high we can soar.

July moves us out of the 11 spiritual initiation vibration of June to the 3 vibration (7 2015) which is a highly creative and less difficult frequency. Yes 11 is a master number but mastery numbers are full of lessons, challenges, and difficult choices. We can no longer coast between the temptation to become ‘more ready’ and to do more healing and urge to break free of our limitations and fears. All we need is an intention and an action plan because it’s time to start our engines and burn rubber – leave tracks as you jump out of the starting gate. This month’s themes are rigor, resolution, and re-orientation and we’re going to apply them to our forward movement so we are moving in a forward direction with clarity, confidence, and congruence and without the questions about our worthiness or need for approval, acknowledgement, and validation.

Rigor refers to the discipline to stay on our ascension path and follow the call of our soul mission for divine congruence, joy, and harmonious fulfillment.

Resolution refers to the true aim of healing, completion and closure with the finality of knowing that our truth always leads us in the right and best direction. Every relationship is not destined to lead to joyful fulfillment and endings are always a consideration.

Re-orientation refers to our ability to plot a new course for joy as we use acceptance to maintain our energetic integrity. The need for security and stability can keep us mired in ruts of fear and when we realize that we can make course corrections without regret, guilt, or shame.

July opens with a Venus/Mars conjunction in Leo. Now this doesn’t happen very often and we have that conjunction all month. I did some research and the previous Venus/Mars conjunction in Leo was in September 2015 and prior to that in June 1991. While some people may talk about the romantic aspects of this conjunction, there is far more to it than that. While romance is a possibility, I believe Venus/Mars in Leo highlights the 2021 theme of energetic sovereignty, where we have to maintain our energetic integrity in all of our connections, to take care of ourselves and be more self-ish and self focused. Any relationship that is based on need, healing, co-dependence, or karma is up for review, reconsideration, and recalibration or release.

Here we have the divine expression of male/female enhanced by being in the sign of the lion which is ruled by the sun. Does it get any more glorious than this? If you have ever needed support for integration of your divine male and female aspects, you get that opportunity until July 30.

The divine male principle expresses bold, confident, aligned action with confidence and courage. The divine female principle expresses confidence, beauty, grace, and alignment with self awareness and panache. Panache is a word I love because it means style, flair, and vivacity. What’s your personal style? Do you live your life with flair? In a society where we are conditioned to follow to the latest style or trend, having your own style, living with flair, is an expression of our unique energy signature.

In July you can consider putting that energy into action in your life. What are your gifts? Where is your voice? Is it time to speak up, speak out, and project your unique intention into the world? We create our reality through our intention and your voice is what creates the vibration of your reality so get those vocal cords moving, it is time to manifest and make it all happen. You’re in c
