The Planets This Week: July 9, 2018

There is a lot going on this week, astrologically speaking. The big news of the week, the month and year is the Solar Eclipse in Cancer! We also have love planet Venus moving into Virgo and expansive Jupiter finally turning direct after four months of being retrograde.

The Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 12th promises to be a memorable one! It forms a challenging opposition to transformational Pluto while creating a harmonious grand water trine to Jupiter and Neptune…talk about confusing!

The Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse will remind us to think about things closest to our heart and home. We may find ourselves evaluating our feelings about our home life, our childhood, and even issues of self-love. A need for security lies just beneath the surface of our feelings. If any aspect of our life feels unsafe, this is the time to consider what our remedies should be. If someone in our life is constantly overstepping their boundaries then perhaps it is time to move them out of your home or to move yourself out of the situation.

Also, this week, love planet Venus moves into Virgo where it will be until August 6th. Many of us may be more critical of potential suitors or, if in a relationship, of our partner. Although we may think we’re being helpful, our words could be received as harsh or judgmental. At the same time, we might be more sensitive to other people’s criticism, because we may feel less confident than usual.

Jupiter, planet of luck and good fortune finally turns direct after a 4+ month retrograde period. It is in the sign of Scorpio which reveals what is not known. During this time, we may discover what has been hidden or be able to see what others miss.

Tune in on Monday 6pm PT/9pm ET to find out more…
