JULY ASTROLOGY 2021
July opens with a tricky Mars Saturn opposition which sets the tone for the month as the two malefic aspect each other, each trying to have their way. Saturn in Aquarius has the upper hand, so the long slow game beats out any rush or major pushes ahead especially if they are coming from a place of passion or ego. A cool and detached head will win the race.
Having Mercury entering Cancer, joining the Sun and the New Moon, brings down some of the tensions mid month, as we get a more intuitive or emotive read on things. Bonding and connecting to those who nurture you is wonderful, helping you heal any wounds that have opened by Mars and Saturn’s opposition.
