Astrology Transits July 2020 – Action and Energy

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.Nikola Tesla

The planetary movements in July seem to fit all the requirements of energy, frequency and vibration.  Mars, the planet of anger, action, energy and aggression, moves from nebulous Pisces into its home sign of action-oriented Aries.

In addition, we experience the third summer eclipse at 14 degrees Cancer on July 4th or 5th (depending on your location).  The energy of this eclipse activates the Cancer/Capricorn frequencies and energizes the concept of home and security (Cancer) versus our place in the world (Capricorn).

Finally, we have the second conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn bringing an expansion (Jupiter) of our focus on government, rules and restriction (Capricorn).

Those of you with early-degree planets in the Cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Libra and Aries), and Scorpio will feel the energizing effect the most.

June 28:  Mars Enters Aries.  Mars Sextile Saturn at Zero Degrees Aries/Aquarius.  When a planet enters a new sign at zero degrees of a sign its influence is amplified in the new sign.  Mars is very strong in its own sign of Aries. Combining Mars’ zero-degree ingress with its Arian strength gives us a strong fiery, active Arian feel to the next 6-plus months.

While Mars was in Pisces, many of us felt extra tired, confused and lethargic. Mars in a water sign is unable to express freely.  Now with Mars in a fire sign, we will hopefully feel a little more energetic.  Mars in Aries gives us the oomph and courage to push ahead with our desires.  The main downside of Mars’ Aries journey is that anger and aggression will be even more freely expressed.  We would all be wise to transmute our anger into passion for a cause or desired accomplishment.

Mars sextile Saturn retrograde in Capricorn is an excellent aspect to accomplish something that you have been putting off. It brings a burst of action and energy (Mars) tempered with the need to proceed slowly and realistically (Saturn).

July 1:  Retrograde Jupiter Conjunct Retrograde Pluto at 24 Degrees Capricorn.  This is the second of three historic conjunctions of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter only conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn every 250 years.  The last time this occurred was in 1771 during the time of the American and French revolutions. It certainly explains the feeling that we are experiencing a historic turn of events!

This conjunction expands a lot (Jupiter) of very intense (Pluto) energy.  Jupiter relates to cultural movements and truth as you see it.  Though Jupiter conjunct Pluto  can be challenging, it is unparalleled for furthering spiritual growth.  The next exact conjunction will be on November 11, 2020, but the effects will be in play all year.

Saturn Retrograde Re-enters Capricorn Until December 17, 2020.  Saturn’s influence from the beginning of the year until March 21, when it was in Capricorn, will once again be brought out and looked at.  Hopefully, it will help show the mistakes made in stopping COVID-19 and allow re-evaluation of our path forward.

July 4 or 5: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 14 Degrees Capricorn/Cancer.  This is the last eclipse of the summer eclipse series.  It is an emotional, intense eclipse due to the Cancer Sun square Mars.  Out-of-control emotions in opposition to authority and authority figures is one likely outcome of this volatile eclipse.  Any full Moon in Cancer is always exceptionally emotional and we tend to react from an emotional level.  Sun in Capricorn is rational rather than emotional.  When the Cancer Moon interacts with the Capricorn Sun our emotions may go back and forth like a teeter totter — rational like the Capricorn Sun then emotional like the Cancer Moon and then repeat. Stay grounded.

July 7-9: Mercury Square Mars at 5 to 7 Degrees of Cancer/Aries.  Fast and targeted thinking are benefits of this aspect. However, the tendency may be to speak without thinking.  Slow down and think before you speak.

July 11-13: Sun Trine Neptune at 19-20 Degrees Cancer/Pisces.  Sun trine Neptune can bring a few days of confusion and fatigue.  Emotional family matters may be a prominent source of confusion and worry.  However, for those of you who are tuned into a higher power or divine guidance, this is an especially enlightening time.  Messages from the “other side” may enter your consciousness.

July 12: Mercury Turns Direct at 15 Degrees Pisces.  A lot of the fuzzy communication will start to clear up, especially after Mercury exits its shadow period on July 23rd.

July 15:  Sun Enters Cancer.  The emphasis turns to home and family.  Nurture yourself and loved ones.

July 13-16: Sun Opposition Jupiter and Pluto at 21-24 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn.  Can you say “power play?”  Oppositions always show opposing points of view.  When you add in powerful Pluto, expansive Jupiter, and Sun trine Neptune we have a perfect picture of confusion meant to obfuscate and/or control.  Pay attention not only to what is obvious, but also to what is going on behind the scenes.  What you hear on the news may have hidden meanings during this strong opposition. Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn feel such challenges strongly.

July 19-21: Sun Opposite Saturn at 27 to 29 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn.  Conflicts relating to authority are dominant during the transit of the Sun in Cancer opposite Saturn in Capricorn.  We can see this in the news stories relating to Black Lives Matter and the rules (or lack thereof) regarding the coronavirus. Decisions on whether to stay at home or return to the workplace and/or public life will be front and center under this opposition.

July 27:  Mercury Square Mars at 16 Degrees Cancer/Aries.  Problems, irritation, arguments and mechanical breakdowns are some of the possible manifestations of this troublesome, but thankfully, fast moving transit.

July 30:  Mercury Opposition Jupiter at Cancer/Capricorn and Mercury Trine Neptune at Degrees Cancer/Pisces.  Over stimulated thinking processes and over confident opinions are a hallmark of Mercury opposition Jupiter. Let go of the need to solve the world’s problems. Instead, focus on the use of your imagination and your artistic and intuitive abilities (Mercury trine Neptune).
