Sister Sage Astrological Journey Continues Cover
Is there a cosmic or divine order that has rhyme and reason under the heavens? As our personal journey unfolds are there times and seasons where we have recognized history repeating itself? Let’s explore these theories as it relates to astrological cycles from years past to current day on an individual, collective and global level.
“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”

~ Carl Jung
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…”

July’s Cosmic Messages

July, what divine unfolding, changing and revealing energies do you have for us?

The image says a great deal! The “fire within me” by itself symbolizes an opportunity for growth and often times it comes through change and course correction.

The sky above, the heavens, the stars and its influences help facilitate these changes in our physical world, our lives and yes, including our collective Earth world.

As we look up and glean what we can learn from the stars to help us on our journey and what lies before us is powerful.

Sometimes it is also what was behind us that has not been healed, dealt with or acknowledged.

Cancer and the month of July in Divine Astrology

July is bringing us change, challenge and reveal.

From day one in July we are upon this shift and change.

July in Divine Astrology rules the sign of Cancer.

For those who follow this type of Astrology with me know that it is the entire month of July, regardless of the day, that is in this sign of Cancer.

Having said that, the current Dragon’s Head and Dragon’s Tail out in the Universe are in Cancer and Capricorn respectively.
Those months are July and January. So every July and January between the dates of November 13, 2018 to June 4th, 2020 are in play here.

This means that January and July are big, changing months for us in our Individual Astro charts and the collective world. The question becomes for you, where do your July and January reside?

Before we get to the retrograde phases, let’s talk about the month of July as it unfolds.
As mentioned, from the first day of July to the 31st of July we are in for change.

How that displays itself is in many ways. It could be fireworks!

First, it depends on where your July/Cancer (with other planets when you are born and out in the Universe) are located in your birth chart.

The second reason is, on July 2nd, 2019, we have a Solar Eclipse and a New Moon in the sign of Cancer. A Solar Eclipse is ways the Universe wants to reveal information to us. This can come in dreams, old circumstances resurfacing that needs to be worked on or current situations deserving of being addressed.

Think of bubbles that come up from the bottom of an ocean. They come up to be released. This is no different.

The Moon governs the watery sign of Cancer. Cancer is an emotional sign to begin with and add these other influences of Eclipses and the Dragon’s Head speaks plenty. It is letting us know, change, challenge and course correction is upon us.

Cancer also rules the United States. We will be seeing reveals and changes with our own government, politicians and the United States itself.

So the question is, what will be brought to light that has not been known to the public?

Cancer is a water sign which affects the water in our bodies. A great time to make sure you are meditating and grounding yourselves often during this month.

New Moon on July 2nd, 2019 is a great time to set intentions without starting new endeavors. I say this because, on July 7th, Mercury goes retrograde. Be mindful as you are not signing agreements and contracts if at all possible. Await its direct motion before commencing new ideas and signing contracts.

It is so important to know that sometimes during a Mercury retrograde phase, if there is an insufficient foundation to sustain certain relationships, including business relationships, that it may end. It is okay. If the foundation is weak, sometimes in the future it can be re-established, but on a different understanding or mutual agreement.

This is a very good time to journal your night dreams. During a Mercury retrograde phase, our conscious minds may seem more foggy, yet our subconscious minds are more open to the divine. It is like a direct phone conversation or download with the divine.

At this point we will be having 5 planets in retrograde.

Allow yourselves to fully enjoy the festivities of July 4th, 2019 as July (Cancer) is about food, apple pie, baseball, picnics and family. Having fun times out of the home, like bon fires and eating Smores is what this month suggests.

Venus goes into Cancer on July 3rd, that may invite some love and romance for those born in July. Venus, after all, is the planet of love and beauty.

Moving to July 16th brings us a Full Moon in Capricorn plus a Lunar Eclipse. Well, let’s see what this really means.

We will have had things revealed to us at the beginning of the month only to have some things go underground, withheld from the news and hidden from our conscious minds. During our next Solar Eclipse even more will be revealed.

Now this is amplified with a Full Moon in Capricorn as it relates to governments, politics, conglomerates and spiritual organizations. July and January, as mentioned, are changing months that tend to reveal and bring to the forefront many things.

Then on July 31st we have Mercury moving direct and another New Moon is occurring. The New Moon in the sign of Leo.

Retrogrades and their Influences

For those who have my recent book Sister Sage’s Astrological Journey Continues: As Above, So Below, I talk a great deal about how Saturn, Pluto and the Dragon's Tail is within the sign of Capricorn and its affects. I encourage you to go back to that in chapter 13.

Mercury begins its retrograde phase on July 7th, 2019 to July 31, 2019
Neptune begins its retrograde phase on June 21st, 2019 to November 27, 2019
Jupiter begins its retrograde phase on April 10th, 2019 to August 11, 2019
Pluto begins its retrograde phase on April 24th, 2019 to October 2, 2019
Saturn begins its retrograde phase on April 29th, 2019 to September 18, 2019

Mercury: The planet of communications and expressions. This is a time when electronics, miscommunication, appointments and schedules may go a little haywire. Keep a journal of how you feel during this time.

Jupiter: This planet refers to growth, expansion and opportunities. It also represents our spiritual, theological and philosophical self. The energy is on an individual and collective level.

Pluto: We are talking about the power of death and rebirth. Pluto helps to bring about that which needs to be transformed. Many spiritual people talk about how we take a negative situation, circumstance or even emotion and transmute it.

Saturn: This planet is the task master and structure, it is karmic and wants us to get it right. It is disciplined and methodical. It’s also a practical sign and influence. It is important to note here, Saturn governs the sign of Capricorn. This is where the Tail of the Dragon out in the Universe is residing.

Neptune: Neptune governs the sign of Pisces. This truly reflects your spiritual/religious parts. It also refers to your subconscious and hidden (not aware of to the conscious mind) areas of your mind.

Any planet that goes retrograde offers us guidance and insight of what to observe within ourselves as we go through the retrograde phase. Take notice of any changes, dreams, patterns, wisdom or lessons.

Moon Phases and Energies

New Moon: Tuesday July 2nd , 2019 - Cancer

A time to plant new seeds, intentions and goals and nurture them.

Be mindful of the Mercury Retrograde to not sign agreements or start a new endeavor, if at all possible.

Full Moon: Tuesday July 16th, 2019 - Capricorn

This is a time to release and surrender to that which no longer serves you or your path and purpose.
