This week’s headline items: Jupiter’s Station in Aries intensifies on Monday; the New Moon in Leo becomes exact on Thursday early afternoon; Jupiter comes to a halt and starts its 4-month Retrograde phase on Thursday late afternoon; Chiron ends its Station phase in Aries on Saturday (while remaining Retrograde).

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday early morning (for a little over 9.5 hours); Wednesday evening (a little over 5.5 hours), and Friday night/Saturday very early morning (almost 14 hours).


Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 25th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini until 1:54pm EDT. With this placement, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way…

The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday in the very early morning, a challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 2:13am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last Friday evening (July 22nd) and it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening. This aspect asks that we question our most fundamental beliefs and conditioning around money, valuing ourselves, and our relationships.

It also challenges us to step out of our comfort zone and grow beyond who we thought we were when we were growing up (or in the past).

We are also invited to investigate how we view our connections to family and home. We are called to grow beyond our current understanding of what our values led us to pursue until now.

Issues connected to love, relationships, and whatever is most valuable to us, can seem overwhelming at this time. This is because we have a tendency to overindulge or over-promise.

Ask yourself: What assumptions am I operating from in connection with money that are based in my past and no longer applicable? What are the assumptions around love? Where am I overindulging, based on what I think I deserve, rather than what I truly need?

We mean well, because we are feeling quite optimistic at this time, but may underestimate how much time we actually have, or how good a fit something actually is.

Overspending could be connected to this aspect as well, as could making assumptions around our personal projects or leadership abilities; as best as you can, bring a non-judgmental awareness to any such tendencies.

What are you observing about yourself and your emotional connections with others? What is enough… and what is too much?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 5-12 degrees of Cancer, Aries, Libra, or Capricorn? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra, or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Monday in the early morning, at 4:14am EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that lasts for a little over 9.5 hours, until 1:54pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments — you may also need to do a little stretching and growing when it comes to your inner, intuitive, or emotional experiences. As best as you can, be gentle with yourself and others, and seek to understand before seeking to be understood.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday early morning until the early afternoon ahead of time.

Monday early afternoon, at 1:54pm EDT, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say to (and about) us, so be kind to yourself and others. Emotional safety is important to us at this time: We like connecting to the familiar, home or family becomes our sanctuary.

Nurture yourself and others, but remember: Make sure your glass is filled before letting others drink from it — otherwise we might start resenting others for draining our energies.

Also on Monday, Jupiter’s Station intensifies at almost 9º of Aries, as it is preparing to come to a halt on Thursday afternoon (starting its 4-month Retrograde phase… more on that later…). This intensified station will last until July 30th. We will feel Jupiter’s energy even more forcefully during this time.

As I mentioned last Friday already, when a planet stations, we start to be more fully aware of its energy; this awareness helps us to get more connected to those energies as they exist within us. We get to see where we need to embrace them more fully, so that we can use them in a healthy way, without getting lost in the lower vibrations of their expression.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, and “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking: too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overpromising, and overindulgence.

Those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendant) in 7-11 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Cancer, or Libra will be more affected by this station. This is also true for those of us with their Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Jupiter’s movements and aspects)
