Astrology Transits July 2017 – Action and Power

Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.  Joel Osteen


The dominant energy throughout the month of July 2017 is power and anger.  How we use our power and how we let others usurp our power and/or control us. Lock step along with the power issue is the question of how we handle the anger that arises from those power issues.

The month opens with Mars in Cancer opposing Pluto in Capricorn.  Mars is activity, anger, aggression, combativeness and “me first” “then you.” Pluto is the planet of power, control, transformation, revealer of secrets and single-minded determination.

Opposition aspects present a tug-of-war dynamic. They set up an either/or scenario.  When one side of the opposition is feeling good and on top of the situation the other side is feeling down and trying to regain dominance (picture a teeter/totter up and down, up and down).

Also prominent this month are dual T-squares in cardinal signs denoting the desire to take action and to get things moving.  All of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) will be zapped but Cancer and Capricorn will feel it the most because of the Cancer/Capricorn opposition.

Because the sky is a continuously changing picture, the aspects will shift a little throughout the month and become stronger or weaker, but the overall energy will remain.

July 4 brings Mercury square Uranus.  Lots of volatility here around ideas and communication.  Watch for brilliant ideas or conversations or maybe just far-out crazy, unpredictable, erratic communication that startles and shakes you up. Sound familiar?

Also on July 4th Jupiter quincunx Neptune urges you to use your optimism and faith (Jupiter) to achieve your dreams and aspirations and to attune to your highest self (Neptune).  The quincunx is an aspect of irritation.  It is like a fly buzzing in your face that won’t go away or an alarm clock that just keeps blaring away.  It isn’t in your face like a square, but you must attend to something to make it useful and to make the nagging go away.

On July 5th and 6th the Sun square Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing.  Overload and overwhelm are followed by a tendency to idealize and to ignore warning signs when the Sun trines Neptune. The high spiritual side of these aspects is that there is  no better time to connect with your true self and to get in touch with, and to progress toward your true life path.

The powerful full Moon in Capricorn on July 9 sets off the T-squares and the potent line up of Pluto opposing Sun and Mars.  This formidable energy can bring earthquakes, explosions, fires and other natural upheavals as well as all manner of human-caused calamities. On a positive note, this powerful Moon can shake things loose, get you unstuck and propel you towards making any needed changes in your life.  You will know what those changes are.

On July 17 Mars squares Uranus and then the Sun squares Uranus on July 20.  Danger abounds.  We want
excitement and change and rebellion runs rampant.  This is a signature for accidents, wars (don’t be alarmed even neighborhood conflicts qualify) and upheaval.  It is also a signature for brilliant ideas, stunning breakthroughs, technological advances and breath taking insights.  The key here is to let the energy move you forward without destroying everything that has already been built.  Use Saturn retrograde, which is trine Uranus, to modulate the overly stimulating atmosphere and to set limits.

More of the same is the watchword on July 23 when the Leo new Moon conjuncts Mars (and of course conjuncts the Sun)and fosters emotional (Moon), aggressive (Mars) feelings.  On July 24 when Mercury trines Uranus pay attention to hunches and “crazy” ideas, which might actually be crazy or might be brilliant and of genius level.

You might ask:  “Where is the silver lining in all of these crazy, angry, power hungry planets this month?’  Here are some thoughts to help you use this month’s energy in the most optimum way:

  • The impetus to action is at an all time high – use the energy to move forward on any well-thought-out plans,
  • The push to change the status quo is going through the roof. This is an especially beneficial energy for those who have been stuck in some way. The planets are now giving you a literal “kick in the pants” to act and change and move.
  • The need to take control of your life can be truly life changing in a positive way. The saying that “you are in control of your destiny” now takes on new and important meaning.
  • Listen to your “crazy” Uranus-inspired ideas. Many of them will be truly crazy, but there is most likely a spark of genius in at least one of them that can be useful.
  • At the Leo new moon start something new. Your creativity will be at an all-time high, and your leadership qualities are ready to be tested. Leos, in particular, need to pay attention!
  • Finally, just go with the flow. Take precautions, but don’t become fearful.

When all is said and done you might look back on the month as one of the most exciting times of your life!
