Astrological Highlights for the Week Ahead
Lots of positive energy surrounding communication this week We have Mercury joining the Sun in Cancer, boosting those loved-up Cancer vibes and Vesta goes retrograde in spiritual Pisces giving us a chance to reconnect with some powerful feminine energy…
Pallas enters Gemini 4th July 2022 11:12pm (ET) 5th July 2022 4:12am (BST)
Pallas is one of the asteroids found in the belt that stretches between Mars and Jupiter along with Ceres, Juno and Vesta.
Named for the Goddess of warfare, wisdom and strategy, Pallas defines our unique style of wit, how we process critical thinking and our means of planning a strategy.
Pallas symbolises the men in our life (especially in women’s natal charts). It can reveal how much we trust them, it can make us instinctively trust them, or make us suspicious of their motives.
Pallas in Gemini sharpens our intelligence and blesses us with the gift of the gab - words are our strength right now. Writers, journalists and performers all shine with Pallas in Gemini, and many of them have Pallas in Gemini in their personal charts.
Mars enters Taurus 5th July 2022 2:04am (ET) 5th July 2022 7:04am (BST)
Mars in Taurus can be a little conflicting - Mars is about initiative and jumping into action , whereas Taurus, wants to take it easy and do things at it’s own pace.
Whilst Astrologically speaking, Mars isn’t usually comfortable in Taurus, that doesn’t mean we cant make the energy work to our advantage. The key to this transit is to make sure what we focus our energy on aligns with our needs if we want them to amount to anything special.
Projects started now may be hard to get off the ground, however, if we manage to push through with them, Taurus’ enduring energy will make sure we see it all the way through.
Mars in Taurus is concerned with security, finances and comfort. We may spend more time analysing our finances and fighting to improve them. As long as we dig deep and find the strength to push through with our goals, Mars in Taurus will provide us with the dedication and persistence we need to cross the finish line
Mars enters Taurus on Tuesday, which just so happens to be the day of Mars, making this the perfect opportunity to light a red candle and cast some spells to stop procrastination - something we may suffer from with Mars in Taurus.
Mercury enters Cancer 5th July 2022 2:25am (ET) 5th July 2022 7:25am (BST)
Mercury is all about thoughts, speech and ideas and Cancer is all about the feelings! Therefore, we can expect some deep emotive conversations over the next month, as this transit gives us a greater ability to process and express our feelings.
Mercury in Cancer is giving us the opportunity to get closer to others during this transit. It is encouraging us find a greater understanding of ourselves and to strengthen the bonds in our relationships.
Now is great time for long nights talking about the future and about what you want from your relationship. Writing love letters and poems are all good ways of expressing how you feel about your loved ones and will be well received at this time
Be warned though, those Cancer vibes can swing our emotions from positive and loved up one minute, to overly sensitive and defensive the next. We can also have a tendency to sentimentality and idealising the past in the position (a trait those with their Moon in Cancer should also be aware of!) Your ex is your ex for a reason!
First Quarter Moon in Libra July 6th 2022 10:14pm (ET) 7th July 2022 3:14am (BST)
First Quarter Moon is a great time to focus on manifesting what you want in your life. This First Quarter is flavoured with typical Librian themes of harmony, balance and beauty, which makes it the perfect time to manifest or work some Magick based around bringing more peace and acceptance in to our lives. Meditate this first quarter to the Spells8 Moon in Libra mediation to get in the mood
Vesta Retrograde in Pisces 7th July 2022 5:33pm (ET) 7th July 2022 10:33pm (BST)
Vesta goes retrograde 7th July, steadily retracing through Pisces until she enters Aquarius 21st August, before turning direct again in Aquarius 5th October. Those with heavy Pisces placements (and later heavy Aquarian placements), will feel this transit more than others.
We can probably all agree, things have felt a bit chaotic of late? Vesta retrograde brings us the chance to reconnect with some powerful celestial feminine energy that brings us a sense of comfort, belonging and peace
Vesta is the keeper of your spiritual flame and represents the sacred feminine creative energy that allows you to dedicate yourself to aspirations, plans, and goals. Vesta shows where you have a nun-like devotion to a cause, project, person, or belief that is sacred to you - she also shows you the expression of your sexual identity and how your desires turn into longing.
When Vesta retrogrades, we “feel” the energy from the planet internally. We are being offered the chance to go on a journey of self discovery, in order to express those feelings externally. This process will help you develop a deeper understanding and strength of the traits associated with Vesta.
This time, Vesta retrogrades in Pisces which means it will be flavoured with typical Piscerian themes - sensitivity, spirituality and creativity. It favours soul searching, journalling, meditating reconnecting with your core and your higher self.
Have a lovely week and happy 4th July
These words are my own
Love & Light to all
