July begins and ends on a high note, sandwiched between two Full Moons — with a lot shifting in between, major aspects, planetary ingresses, Uranus’ direct station, Venus’ retrograde station and Saturn’s direct station in Scorpio as we enter August.
Earlier this week on Monday, a Sun-Pluto opposition asked for evolution and letting go of old attachments to security, to create space for new structure that is supportive.
Yesterday marked the Quarter Moon, the Aries Moon reached the half-way point between the recent Capricorn Full Moon, and the upcoming Cancer New Moon a week from now. Earlier today, the Aries Moon trined Venus in Leo at 9:46 AM EDT, went VOID and entered Taurus at 3:49 PM EDT.
The easiest way to study astrology and to watch it at work, would be to simply observe the Moon cycles in relation to your life. What came to light at the Full Moon? You’ve reached a turning point with the Quarter Moon, asking you to go for it, if you want to manifest your dreams.
With the Moon moving through earthy, solid Taurus through the weekend, with no major aspects — this would be great for quiet time and relaxation. Get back in touch with reality, get into nature, getaway to the beach, rest, pamper and nurture your body, get centred, release heavier emotions, take stock of resources and ground yourself in what’s truly of value.
At the time of the Cancer New Moon on July 15, 2015, Mars and Mercury will be in conjunction also in Cancer, in opposition to Pluto, continuing the Sun-Pluto aspect from earlier this week.
This is a new cycle calling for decisive clear headed action — but this is also very emotional watery energy and there’s a danger of slipping up. Go slow, pay attention to your feelings and release them consciously so you can avoid a meltdown, and or biting off more than you can chew.
We’re also in Venus’ shadow phase, moving towards the Venus retrograde station on July 25, 2015, bringing at first seemingly insignificant glitches, that could quickly unravel a deeper story. What was unfolding in your life 8 years ago in 2007, and then 1999, 1991? Do you recognise any themes? How have you evolved? As I write this I look back on my life, and I’ll bring you my observations in the next blog hopefully.
For now I’ve interpreted the Venus retrograde transit, and all major aspects daily in the Cosmic Diaries: July 2015 Cosmic Weather.
Below is a list of aspects through to the Cancer New Moon, with excerpts.

“Whenever Uranus is activated in the sky, we can expect the unexpected. There could be sudden breakthroughs; there’s a sense of the floodgates suddenly opening up; or you learn something that’s music to your ears.
“But also be aware of what motivates your choices, especially if you’re caught off guard. And avoid projecting your fears and insecurities and creating trouble where there isn’t any. Conversations could go surprisingly smoother than you expect, bringing you deep clarity about something if you really listen to what someone is saying rather than think you know.
