A series of 3 eclipses officially begins next week. Yet, the energy always intensifies a couple weeks before. Meaning, we’re in it!
Even if you don’t have planets in the natal or progressed charts near eclipse degrees (details coming below), the cosmos have plenty of shifts this week that can be unnerving.
Like mini-earthquakes in your personal foundation, these changes are in your temperament and your environment. (Hint: Look to the house placement of the eclipse points and the planetary shifts to know how it might manifest).
Venus is changing signs on Monday the 9th to Virgo – her least favorite placement. She may not even know it, but overwhelm, bitterness, and putting yourself down the priority list seem to happen almost by accident.
Yet, you’ll also feel like working hard and putting your energies behind what you champion.
Just make sure you’re truly supporting what does matter in your long-term vision, and that you change activities often enough to not get into the weeds. (This energy continues until August 6th).
Also, Jupiter is stationing to Direct Motion. Over Jupiter’s Retrograde, you’ve gained secret information that has helped you gain confidence in your path, the people supporting it, and in yourself.
The Direct Motion path says it’s time to apply that strategy and inner-knowing to the world. Be the influence for good, and transform the world and its people around you.
These planetary shifts agitate – and thus intensify – the energies of the eclipse, particularly the first one on Thursday the 12th. The eclipse wants to fast-forward your personal evolution.
However, with a shifting context – aka those planetary shifts and the eclipse happening in oscillating Cancer – the target of change also is moving.
So if it boils down to one thing, I might bet that you can feel bit moody and undecided this week. Call it laissez-faire – that’s probably the best approach to all this anywhere.
This Week’s Considerations helps you personalize this info to understand how it impacts you.
Personalize Your Weekly Astrological Influence
Astrology 101 here! To “predict” (i.e. likely manifestations), you’ll want to see where your natal chart or your progressed charts interacts with the planetary events. (I’ll call this “If you have planets at ___ degrees as well as “planet in aspect”).
Caveat A – astrology is based on archetypes, so the “options” are plentiful as how things manifest. Getting to know how they’ve manifested before can help predict more accurately. Go with your intuition on this.
Caveat B – things manifest first on the spiritual level, then the emotional level (if shifts aren’t made spiritually), then the physical level (if shifts aren’t made on the emotional). Meaning, pay attention to subtle cues and be a part of your own personal growth.

Astrological Day Guides: July 3 – 9, 2018
Read these guides as a whole to get a feel for the week’s tone. There’s always some overlap of themes. Then read them as you need them, day-by-day.
Tuesday – Intuitive day. Let yourself wander in the unknown and find delights along the way. Just like my 1-day adventure in Nice was guided by intuition almost two months ago, let yourself discover what the cosmos have in store for your delight and for your service to others.
(Pisces Moon through translation of light makes Grand Trine in water with Sun & Jupiter. Moon also conjoins Neptune).
Wednesday – Wandering and aimless, this day is not suitable for important choices. Go with the flow and take it easy. You’ll have a kick start again tomorrow.
(All day void Moon).
Thursday – Doubts may rise to the surface about the direction you’ve taken the past few months. Your personal truth is probably more a slight adjustment than a major focus shift. Look inward for what’s ego driven and what’s truly your light to bring forth.
(Aries Moon squares Saturn, sextiles Mars and trines Mercury. Sun-Jupiter trine. Mercury-Mars opposition).
Friday – You may feel compromised and tied down more than your free spirit can handle. Expect anger to manifest in whatever dozen of ways it can. Cosmos show it won’t be pretty. Remember the eclipses season is intensifying and anxiety is just something in the air that too will pass. Sometimes changes happen to you, and they end up for the better in the long run. (Remember that). You also may need to be the one who brings difficult news. If you do, also hold the space for them to transform outside your own influence.
(Aries Moon squares Pluto).
Saturday – What gave you self-esteem before may not be cutting it anymore. Look at your calendar and see what parts are the most fulfilling. Then ask yourself why. You know what to do next.
(Void Moon until 8:51am. Then, Taurus Moon conjoins Uranus, trines Saturn, and opposes Mars).
Sunday – Idealistic and hopeful, remember to take pleasure in what is working for you. Sure, life may feel haphazard lately. Yet, there’s something pure that wants to be nurtured under all the busy that you have been paying attention to. Give yourself credit for what you stand for, in the little and big gestures you employ.
(Taurus Moon opposes Jupiter, sextiles Neptune and Sun, trines Pluto. Sun-Neptune trine).
Monday – Stubborn, you may butt heads in a way that doesn’t budge until the afternoon. Venus’ last moments in Leo make you more sensitive to getting credit where credit is due. If you feel slighted, use the afternoon’s energies help you move into a way that is more self-affirming than affirmed by others. By the time you get through the stubborn feelings, you’ll be ready to get to work and find a more humble place to operate from.
(Morning has Taurus Moon and squares Venus to start void period between 12:10pm – 12:58pm EDT. After, Moon moves into Gemini. Mercury-Jupiter square. Venus moves into Virgo).
