As much as you’d love to fly away, it’s time to take care of the domestic – and July insists on being a life path month so you want to be concentrating on what you want to be doing in ten years time. The greatest forces of energy are right now in your tenth house of career and legacy – so utilize them!
You have a chance this July to create a great future for yourself. Pay attention. Especially Tuesday, July 2, when the solar eclipse new Moon in Cancer pushes matters to a head. Play it cool: try not to cry. I can’t emphasize how much calm will protect you.
There are financial consequences following this into July. Enough so you can go in the new career direction you wish. A solar eclipse and new Moon in your public recognition house Tuesday, July 2 seal the deal!
So, here’s the rest of the deal…
On Tuesday, July 2, there is a total solar eclipse at 10 degrees and 38 minutes of Cancer. The eclipse point itself is sextile Uranus and opposing Saturn so expect the unexpected – and quite dramatically so – wherever you have Cancer in your chart. (If you don’t have any planets in Cancer, look at where Cancer appears on the outside of your chart.)
The U.S.A. cannot help but be, as Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse. It will be felt most deeply on Independence Day.
For you, Libra – look at your tenth house (Cancer on the outside of your chart, especially if you are Libra rising), ruling your career, your professional reputation, your legacy. These, no doubt, will have been affected already, but July 2 will be the rising wave, the culmination, the earthquake. In your most public area, there will be an ending and a beginning, strongly felt, with no going back.
For everyone, needless to say, surgical operations are a big NO-NO during the eclipse, and particularly on areas ruled by Cancer: stomach, breasts, and ovaries. This includes cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast alteration, etc. This practice was first attributed to Hippocrates, the grandfather of modern medicine (physicians still have to take the Hippocratic Oath.)
The only other time to watch out for is two weeks later, on Tuesday, July 16, with the partial lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, it is advisable not to have surgery, particularly on areas ruled by Capricorn: bones and teeth. Otherwise, there can be those “complications.”
July’s first week will not be easy. You’ll be biting your tongue and gritting your teeth most of the time. With karmic planet Saturn in your house of property you don’t want to blow it, sabotage all you’ve built up. It’s so much what you want. All you express has consequences – remember to gently monitor your behavior – and you’ll be handed extra responsibilities and commitments to prove your mettle. Also – be super nice to your neighbors. At work, or around your home, or wherever you spend a lot of time.
Watch your gossip, and behave. Not so easy in public nowadays. And you don’t have to yell to be heard. Your words are more powerful than you realize.
For in your most public house you have:
Your ruler planet of love and beauty Venus as of Wednesday, July 3
Sharp-thinking Mercury (going into retrograde July 7 to July 31)
That solar eclipse new Moon on Tuesday, July 2
This eclipse opposes Pluto retrograde in your fourth house, so there will be disruption where you live in order to make this work. Change what needs to change in your home to resolve this challenge.
And what all does your tenth house rule?
Your tenth house, traditionally ruled by ambitious Capricorn, rules:
Your public image
Higher-ups: the people with resources in your world
What you are striving to be like
And often – your MOTHER
This is a potent time for making important new contacts. Particularly around the new Moon at the beginning of July. These contacts will be part of your greater future.
You will form strong professional ties far away. It is up to you to keep them steady, and not have them implode as some other professional matters have gone.
Sorry to be so blunt, dear Libra, but I SO want things to go well for you.
And you will stop trying to please. This takes over your life sometimes, dear Libra. With a certain person, all you do is please. When attacked, you turn even more pleasing – it’s like playing possum, you in the position of dead pleasing.
Someone is feeling threatened by you – secretly – and so, ever so subtly, attacks you. Well – thank goodness, this ceases mid-July. But this comes about by your acting more assertive, sharing when you feel uncomfortable.
In other words, you’re just going to talk about it.
And it’s good! You break an old routine – one that’s become very old – and do something like get out of the house to go swimming; bring a new piece of furniture into the home; someone moves in or out; or you reach resolution with a member of your family. You finally reach satisfactory negotiations about a property.
After July 16, your area of home or family transforms. It is quite miraculous, but uncomfortable at the same time. It is thrilling though – like Pluto, King of the Underworld, who drags Persephone by her hair down to his kingdom from Earth. (Currently, you have Pluto retrograde in your fourth house.)
The story was, he was madly in love with her. Obsessed with her. But it wasn’t easy for Persephone, who, although she genuinely loved Pluto, missed her mother, and the earth.
Read the whole story – it is long and wonderful and just the best, most poetic kind of story.
What I am trying to say – by way of metaphor and including an ancient Greek myth – is that it will be a miracle, but not without its discomforts.
You’ll get through it fine. It is just that that one or more of these areas – your home, early family, property – will transform to a new level. Good things come out of it, like more security in the self, long-term plans being implemented, finally producing your masterpiece. Wise Saturn is in your home area.
Saturn, finally, when all is said and done, makes you grow up. And growing up is all about discipline. Doing the things you don’t want to do, and not doing the things you do want to do.
You will really, really get it together about how to take care of yourself.
Growing up. This is the final piece of your puzzle, dear Libra, and the one which your baby unconscious has been resisting.
You can still be a beautiful princess and play – or pine – but you’ll have a sensible grownup to look after her. You’ll be able to completely trust yourself to look after yourself and protect yourself.
Considerable accomplishments. Congratulations, Libra.
You go out of your way to impress people who are in a position to help you, and if you do the job right the rewards will be tremendous. It’s time to heal that pretty head of yours from a head-trip which was placed on you in the past – from someone who was jealous, and should have been more caring of you and wasn’t.
This was a blow to your success.
Deep breath now. Hand over your heart, pushing in a little. Another breath – feel your hand and your heart as you breathe. There. BREATHE. Deeply.
Allow that person’s guilt-trip to leave you now. It makes you feel as if you don’t deserve good fortune, and that is ridiculous. As if you are not worthy. A horrendous way to feel. There. It is Gone.
It is time to feel better about yourself, deeply better, dear Libra. A massive healing is taking place in your house of self-worth: money as self-worth. Yes, you will be earning more…
In love, ask yourself: Are you as willing to be under someone’s spell, as he or she is willing to be under your spell?
In your professional negotiations: Just grin if it kills you – and keep on smiling! Act as if you have plenty.
Be charming, charming, charming. As only you know how to do.
You’re very needed – on ALL levels – right now, and people just have to be reminded of that. You offer a lot, Libra.
And you do not come cheap. In any form.
Understand that you have been holding yourself back here. Although it comes from your family, it is up to you now.
And I can see you’re getting better already about money, Libra. I can feel it.
And by the end of summer you’re ready for that fun holiday. Try to put it off until then. You just have too many opportunities at work. Brava, Libra!
YOUR LUCKY DAYS Libra Sun and Libra Jupiter, your times of destiny are:
(Eastern) Monday, July 8 after 2:07am; all of Tuesday, July 9; until 5:29am on Wednesday, July 10.
