Welcome to Your July Horoscope Overview!
Welcome to your July overview, this is a long-awaited month of eclipses. It's time to buckle up and prepare for some massive physical and emotional changes. This month we will be enduring two eclipses, one Mercury retrograde, and an extra new Moon at the end of the month. It's pretty safe to say that July is nothing short of fireworks. As some of you may remember, from January 2019 we began some major shifts in our lives in terms of emotions and responsibilities. It appears now we are reviewing some of the changes that we have made over the past six months.
So Let's talk about eclipses. Eclipses are cosmic portals that create endings and beginnings. We are looking at the aspects of the archetypes of cancer and Capricorn, which may be work-life balance, how to perhaps raise a child and still nurture a career. For some it may be taking care of an older relative, and how that affects the home life. Many of you may experience deep changes in the months ahead due to what comes up in July. Some will be moving, others will be choosing to have children. Some will be choosing to set outgrown relationships, careers, and people free. What we are really identifying in our lives is where we need to nurture and cultivate better more emotional connections (Cancer), and release old overbearing ways of doing things (Capricorn). It's very likely by now you have identified where things are shifting in your life. If you have not already, its an excellent time to get online and take a look at your natal astrological chart for more information. For those of you born from the early 1980s, and 1988-1995 this may be an important time to consider checking in with a reputable astrologer as this significantly affects the trajectory of your life. All eclipses bring great change and require us to be willing to let go of the old to make way for the new. So accepting what may come and go in the weeks ahead is pivotal.
Generally, when a departure happens, and space is created it’s taking place for something new. But be aware, it's not always as easy and clean-cut as it sounds. With Mercury going retrograde, it’s possible there can be some miscommunications, crossed wires and delays. The focus on Cancer is really truly speaking to our emotions. So I would like to stick with that for this particular article Paying attention to how we FEEL. How our home feels, how our body, heart chakra, stomach feel. These are all important areas of life to be mindful of, they’re particularly sensitive now. It’s possible some of these new opportunities appear before we have physically or emotionally made space for them. It’s possible we are left vulnerable and bare as this changes happening, patiently waiting for the next thing to come along and fill the space. Be patient, with yourself and others.
Do your best to practice self-care, and set all things free with love. The universe will be testing you later in the Month when Mercury stations direct and comes back again the beginning of August to confirm is this really what you want? As per most retrogrades, when Mercury turns back there can be issues with communication, emails, technology, and agreements. With the harsh aspects to Pluto and Saturn, it’s especially important to be mindful of what you agree to, as there can be some underlying issues with someone or something pressing you, forcing you, or guilting you into making a rash decision. Major moves, leases, home purchasing, starting a family, etc. fall under cancers realm and should be carefully considered for some of you. Take your time. Be aware of any push back you’re experiencing now. Don’t play mind or power games. Don’t put up with any either.
It’s safe to say that things begin to level out closer to the beginning of August next month, however, eclipse energy triggers events that may only be starting now. Technically they may have six months to a year to play out. Thankfully with all of the conjunctions and aspects to between Venus as well as Mercury, you have several opportunities to speak from the heart. Doing so creates numerous opportunities to level up to what your heart needs this year. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer is harvesting new opportunities to care for something, and to some extent may be more manageable for most of you. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn is what may throw some of you off. This will be about completing major projects, heavy lifting, dealing with completions and endings. The Leo New moon at the end of the month will be an incredible time to start fresh, be clear, and have a path forward. Do your best to have an open mind, and be optimistic that July is a month that redirects you, gets your priorities straight and puts you on the path to finding Home, with whomever, whatever, where ever that may be.

Be cautious and try not to rock the boat when it comes to people you live with, or your family. There can be some challenges when it comes to breaking away and doing the work that you need to do and laying boundaries with people you’re close to. Meditate on being the boss of yourself, show up for yourself. This is one of the most important months for taking charge. It’s possible a friend may reach back out and lend a helping hand with your professional pursuits. You may be looking to join groups or associations in the months ahead. Check a few out. This month is not the month to launch a new business but rather reevaluate where you’re at professionally and decide if you need to make some changes.

It appears that there are some things changing in regards to your beliefs. Things are shifting with a trip, continuing education, or your spiritual focus. You may also be reviewing how to publish something, or begin a new class. Be sure to thoroughly look over any plans when it comes to traveling, or pursuing higher education. Make sure that it is a good fit for you before signing on the dotted line. It seems like all of the developments are two better further you along professionally in the months ahead.

If an electronic gadget goes kaput, wait till next month to replace it.

If you’re saving for a trip it’s possible you may start the beginning process of planning at the end of July or beginning of August, just don’t pull the trigger until the mercury retrograde ends.
Tarot Card: 7 of Swords, trust issues, fear of misleading or deceptive people
In order to feel more complete, and secure in a committed relationship it requires you to break down all of your walls. Yes, I know you’ve been going through quite a colorful time recently. Transformations are never easy, and people never show up at the perfect time. It’s likely they show up in the midst of your personal crisis. You’re changing, but people are appearing to help support that change. The truth is, this is one of the most important relationship months all year for you. Allow the new people and faces to come into your life, and help usher you into becoming more vulnerable and open to love. If you can do this, your intimacy sector and sex life is on fire at the end of July. It’s very likely that you may come into contact with a very intense romantic person, who is not only financially secure but insanely sensual. Go on, enjoy yourself. Just be clear about your boundaries. Steer clear of ex’s and people from the past, don’t look back. You aren’t going back there again.
Tarot Card: Judgement, a final decision, closing the chapter
It’s time to get organized and really hone in on your health. It’s possible that you’re considering taking up a new physical workout routine, diet, or office space. Your schedule may be unexpectedly switched up a bit. This is a month to also pay close attention to your pets if they’re having any health-related issues be sure to take them seriously and have them checked out. Mid-month it’s possible that there is a secret that is coming out. I want you to really focus on letting go of any negative patterns, or stories that you have told yourself this far. You’re putting to rest a chapter that is no longer part of your story. This may require some time alone, or perhaps even more rest. At the end of the month, you’re making way and welcoming new relationships into your life. These people are here to bring you joy and creativity. Be sure to thoroughly clean house physically and emotionally to make space for them, you deserve it.
Tarot Card: Queen of Swords, speaking directly and from a place of reason, an air sign woman
This may be a month where you find yourself going back to complete old creative projects. Creativity is bursting at the seams, and you’re feeling inspired. If there is a piece of something you have left unfinished, it’s very likely that you will complete your masterpiece! If you’ve been back-and-forth with a boyfriend or girlfriend, now may be the time that you decide whether not you want to stay in this partnership. Ask yourself if your vision for the future fits with them in it. This is also a time where you may find yourself contemplating or wondering if you are going to have a child. Think about this long and hard before you make a decision, because you may be very fertile in the months ahead. I recommend letting go of old friendships that no longer suit you, and finding creative ways to fill your schedule and get organized.

Happy new year, friends! We have collectively entered the energy of 2023, a “7” year in numerology… Sevens are spiritual numbers that offer opportunity to reflect, engage philosophy and spiritual inquiry for personal growth, thoughtful analyzation in all matters, and psychological integration and wholeness. Along with this theme of reflection is that we start the year in a handful of retrograde planetary energy. Mercury (communication, thinking, writing) is in retrograde until the 18th, Mars (action, desire, passion, motivation) until the 12th, and Uranus (technology, major shifts, disruptions, sacred challenges, transformation) until the 22nd...

Happy December, JSS fam! We have entered the final month of the year, eclipse season has ended, and we are soaring in the free and adventurous energy of Sagittarius throughout most of this month... The full moon on the 7th falls in Gemini and will be conjunct Mars… I always like to focus on gratitude and forgiveness for the final full moons of the year (hello, alliteration!). Forgiveness unburdens us and promotes healing through release, and gratitude expands abundance. This lunation highlights curiosity around who or what we can release to free up mental real estate those outgrown energies were occupying. The Mars conjunction coupled with those intentions and actions can assist us in calling back our power and stepping into confident and passionate warrior mode after unburdening ourselves to prep for the coming year.
