Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: July 1, 2019, through July 7, 2019
Mercury Retrograde July 7th – July 31, 2019
Mercury turns retrograde on Sunday and will remain retrograde until July 31st. Mercury retrograde has a bad rap that it does not deserve. I Love mercury’s retrograde cycles. You only need to learn how to work with it.
Remember! Work on cleaning up and completing old tasks and projects. Don’t start anything new. Be clear in your communications and allow extra time to get where you are going. Regarding your expectations of others, give everyone extra slack.
If you focus your efforts on cleaning up old issues, these can be the most productive times of the year.
A note from a recent client:
“I can’t begin to thank you enough for our recent sessions. I just viewed the recordings and was blown away by the tremendously helpful information, insights and clear seeing that you shared in BOTH sessions. I gleaned SOOO much more from watching the recording than I did during the session initially. And the initial session was totally amazing, itself!!! I felt very comfortable with you. You exude wisdom, great sensitivity, and compassion. I am very grateful to you. Thank you so much.” ~ SC from Sioux City
DRAMATIC ACTION AHEAD
Monday, July 1, 2019:
The chatty Gemini Moon continues to support light-hearted connections and conversations. You can expect a great deal of activity and may deal with internal restlessness. As we move toward tomorrow’s New Moon that restlessness is asking that you go inward. We are in the very Darkest phase of the Moon. The Gemini Moon joins with Venus this evening. You may find yourself verbally expressing love quite freely. Go ahead and speak your mind. Do not hold back the words I Love You.
At 7:19 PM EDT Mars enters Leo following his stint in Cancer. Mars is very happy to leave behind the watery realm of Cancer! He is very comfortable in Leo. Mars, the planet of action, supports your drive and determination. Mars will remain in Leo until August 18th, watch how dramatic action impact the world around you.
At 9:23 PM EDT the Moon quiets down and enters its favorite sign of Cancer. Over the next few days, you will be more inclined toward spending time at home with family.
The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 5:48 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 9:23 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
CANCER NEW MOON – OPEN TO SENSITIVITY
Tuesday, July 2, 2019:
You may wake in a state of increased excitement with the Moon connecting with Uranus as the day begins. This won’t last long. Enjoy some unusual interactions at the breakfast table or on your morning commute. Your intuition is stronger than normal. Pay attention. This Cancer New Moon (also a Full Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees) occurs at 3:17 PM EDT. Think of the Eclipse as a super intense New Moon. With innovative, exciting Uranus in the mix, this is a lovely and very positive New Moon. Don’t neglect your New Moon ritual tonight or anytime during the day tomorrow.
~~New Moon Ritual ~~
CANCER NEW MOON RITUAL
Take a moment to write down the change you wish to begin, create, or increase during this Moon Cycle. The Cancer New Moon asks you to plant a seed of sensitivity, protection, or tender caring toward others. Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another candle as inspiration for what you intend to create, or how you intend to grow. As you light the first candle, take a moment to focus on what is true now in this regard. As you light the second candle draw toward yourself the new YOU that will exist once this seed has grown. Bring the two candles closer together each day for the next two weeks (until the Full Moon on July 16th). At the New Moon, you will see what has grown and what is now illuminated.
Wednesday, July 3, 2019:
Today’s Cancer Moon is a bit cranky as she tangles in serious power struggles. If you face a personal challenge, let it slide off your back. Don’t engage in drama. The issue will pass quickly if you don’t take the bait. If you find yourself to be the challenger, take a deep breath and give the other person some slack. At 11:18 AM EDT Venus leaves Gemini behind to enter Cancer where she will remain until July 27th. While Venus is in Cancer you may be very moody in your most intimate relationships. You long for tender, romantic attachment yet find yourself overly sensitive and self-protective. You want safety, security, affection and ice cream. Don’t forget the ice cream.
The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 10:24 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 11:19 PM EDT. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
SUMMER PARTY DAY
Thursday, July 4, 2019:
You couldn’t ask for better astrology weather for a summer party day. Here in the US folks are celebrating with cookouts and fireworks. The playful, expressive Leo Moon encourages you to show up to the party with bells on! Go for a bit of drama as you show the world your most colorful, confident side.
The Leo Moons contact with Uranus increases the excitement. Parties, summer festivals, and all gathering allow you to make the world your stage. You will want to be seen, appreciated, and loved. Take a creative risk, allow others to see a part of yourself that you normally keep under wraps. Allow your most sparkly side to shine through. If you are an introvert, show up at the party anyway. Spend time with the children who are in attendance. This will support the Leo energy without putting yourself on stage. All creative endeavors are worthy of your attention now. Express love and honor to anyone you encounter.
GENEROSITY OF HEART
Friday, July 5, 2019:
Considering that the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day, head to the beach, look for fun in the Summer Sun. The Leo Moon is ready to bask in that lovely sunshine! For those of you who are lucky enough to have a long weekend, this is time for back yard barbeques and beach parties.
The Moon is void-of-course for the entire day, even in the midst of a party there is an underlying sense of stillness.
This is a day to make offerings from a place of generosity. Focus on acts of kindness for the sake of expanding deep love in your own heart rather than for recognition.
Find ways to open to the joy that the universe supplies each day. Live with your heart wide open. Don’t worry about plans, allow spontaneity and inspiration to direct the course of the day.
The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 2:24 AM EDT until she enters Virgo shortly after midnight. This is a FULL DAY void-of-course. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

A HELPING HAND
Saturday, July 6, 2019:
I hope that you were able to get plenty of play-time over the past few days. By the time today begins the Moon is in Virgo, remaining in this mutable earth sign for the entire weekend. This is a practical weekend, made for getting home chores accomplished and helping others as you can. Virgo needs to be of service to others in functional ways. Help your neighbor or friend in their garden or with any projects they may need help with. There are plenty of folks in your close personal circle who could use assistance. Be that angel who steps in with a helping hand exactly when needed.
MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE: COMPLETE PROJECTS
Sunday, July 7, 2019:
The Moon remains in Virgo all day. The detail-oriented Virgo Moon supports organization and efficiency. If you have not made your list of everything left unfinished, do that with your morning coffee. This list includes all the things to work on during Mercury retrograde.
Consider books sitting idle, emails unanswered, phone calls never returned, projects collecting dust. By focusing on this list you will surprise yourself with your level of productivity. Mercury turns retrograde at 7:15 PM EDT and will remain so until July 31st. Mercury retrograde has a bad rap that it does not deserve. I Love Mercury’s retrograde cycles. You do need to learn how to use them. Remember! Work on cleaning up and completing old tasks and projects. Don’t start anything new. Be clear in your communications and allow extra time to get where you are going. Regarding your expectations of others, give everyone extra slack. If you follow these simple tips these can be the most productive times of the year.
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
