The final Eclipse of the Summer Season stretches our awareness curve and prods us into action.  If you have planets in the early degrees of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libra) you will feel this energy more strongly.  The Sun and Moon are in the heart filled feminine sign of Cancer in a Cardinal Cross with Saturn in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries. 

Perceptions are stretched in the spirit of growth and tension, and the need to "do something" is in play.  Frustration and conflict may bring about dramatic shifts within your world.  Conflict can be creative and empowering especially if we've been "going along to get along" for far too long.  Stay in touch with your heart center and see where it leads you as chances are you are overdue for a major overhaul in some area of your life.

The Moon is VOID all day and the following day (Saturday) to give us the "space" to process this growth and new awareness.  What do you want to do?  Think it over through the weekend as Jupiter sextiles Chiron lending a subtle expansive and healing hand to our next level of development.

Venus slips into Cancer on the 4th lending her soothing influcence to the US Fourth of July celebration.  The United States is a Cancer ruled country.   Venus further supports the Eclipse message supplying plenty of graciousness and artistry.  A time for chefs and the culinary arts to receive plenty of appreciation and gravitas.  Venus trines spacey and imaginative Neptune while Mercury trines electric Uranus.  Fog, fodder and fireworks?  Perfect.

Jupiter reaches out to Pluto on the 7th combining sensual comfort with the flowing energy of control and advancement.  Mercury leaves emotional Cancer for the dramatic communication style of Leo.

ARIES:  Changes are afoot at the most personal nadir of your chart asking what needs to change in your living arrangments on behalf of your emotional well-being. Your income and career direction are well supported in your next "move."  Venus enters the home scene to soften the edges surrounding these changes and to help you attract much needed support.  When Mars trines Saturn on the 6th you're steady, sure and in a strong planning mode.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September.  $8.99

TAURUS:  The eclipse has been revolutionizing how you communicate and express yourself.  What do you need to communicate and where are the areas of your human belief systems that need expressive outlets?  Jupiter in your sign provides support that strengthens relationships with friends and then broadens and supports your evolving higher mind's views.  Venus shifts into this very 3rd house sector helping you to gracefully and eloquently connect with your environment.

GEMINI:  Mercury moves out of your sign and into Leo the area ruling communications, your style of expression, writing, teaching and sales.  Dramatic exchanges are on tap this month as people feel the need to express themselves with flare.  The Eclipse creates tension and then release surrounding your talents, abilities and earning ability.  New frontiers need to be forged, what needs to change in how you earn a living and your self esteem?  Fears have been dogging you around self-worth, earning potential, and your value systems.  Trust the conflict that arises in the spirit of the much needed change and transitions you are embarking upon.  Trust life's wisdom.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

CANCER:  I assert that tension and yes, even conflict can be a highly creative force.  When people reach their "boiling point" and become too fed up to continue doing the same thing in the same way is when breakthroughs occur that will ultimately leave you feeling much more comfortable with yourself and your world.  That kind of relief is coming.  Venus enters your sign making you the favored crabby sign of the zodiac and putting you squarely in the magical seat of attracting what you need and want most.  Do you know what that is?  Figure it out, be clear in your intentions and make it happen.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

LEO:  The worries, fears, private concerns and self-criticism is taking it's toll.  Imagine that you live in a world where thoughts carry energy and what you think about most actually manifests.  If your beliefs about self are primarily negative and lacking it's time to release the patterns, dissolve them and visualize the goopey globs as floating down the river of "been there, done that."  Try it because this world really DOES manifest from your thoughts and belief systems.  Time to change em Lion into a world of honesty, creativity, self-love, self-acceptance, forgiveness, happiness and joy.  You're ready to "talk about things" when Mercury enters your sign this week.  Share the load with a close confident.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

VIRGO:  Tensions build surrounding your goals and career money.  Perhaps the groups you align yourself with are no longer reflecting the evolving aspects of your creative self.  Perhaps your goals no longer support the internal change and shifts that are uniquely yours.  What needs to change Virgo?  How can you more closely align your life's mission to your inner intentions and belief systems?  Any conflicts or transitions you experience at the Eclipse is to lighten your load of past accomodations and to free you up to passionately pursue your heart and soul's desires.  Mercury gives you an added dose of insight into your personal journey as he slips into your 12th house this month.  Identify the fears, shine the light, acknowledge, integrate and continue to feel the assuredness of your life's journey moving forward.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

LIBRA:  Perhaps you've been accomodating others a bit too much and your career goals don't really feel like yours anymore.  There have been seismic shifts at the core of your being over the past couple of years, some of which have really not been given a voice "out there" in the world.  What needs to change Libra?  What are the unrealized contributions you have yet to offer this world?  Please do figure it out and make it happen as the world needs your gifts, insights and offerings.  Your ruling planet Venus joins in the cause when she enters the Solar Eclipse's sign of Cancer this week.  She wants to smooth your way and attract what you need for your next steps.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

SCORPIO:   Pluto, your ruling planet does not move into full strength until mid-September.  The past few months you've experienced somewhat of a respite from the intense and internal thought processes that have peppered your days for the past 4 years.  Yet, this Friday at the Eclipse, Pluto is a major player exposing areas where your attitudes and thoughts have conspired against you.  Something feels "too small" regarding your mental orientations.  There is a bigger picture, one that will free you from some self-imposed limited thinking.  Pay attention even through the uncomfortable information that arises as it will be part of your liberation into your future.  Think "largess" and inclusive rather than exclusive.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

SAGITTARIUS:  Your earnings, self-esteem as well as your view of your talents and abilities have been at times harshly torn down and rearranged.  You are in the final cycle of what has been a two year intense study into "what are my values and what are the unique qualities that I have to offer the world?"  If you've been a worshiper of the almighty dollar and status you may have found your house of cards falling down.  Pluto wants to deepen your value system.  Greed, status and hubris are ubiquitous in this society but your life path is asking you for more accountability in both your heart and your actions.  At the Eclipse you may need anothers help, ask for it!  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

CAPRICORN:  Another round of fresh starts within partnership is heralded at the Eclipse.  Now, don't expect this to be all comfort and compromise.  As the final hurrah of a two year cycle deepening your understanding of both "your" needs within partnership and the "others" needs within partnership is coming to culmination this year please do seek conscious awareness in the role you have played.  In some cases you are learning what power means.  Authentic "power" is not about manipulating the world out there, (although we have many power brokers in the world that who model exactly that) but rather engaging with your internal energy and continuing your stewardship of empowering your intentions, desires and manifestation abilities.  Deep?  You bet!  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

AQUARIUS:  Sensitive areas of your awareness and development have been the focus of this two year Eclipse cycle.  How do you use power?  What influence did your family play in the your belief systems surrounding your personal power and your inherent value?  Your physical as well as psychological health are intertwined with your family's emotional inheritance and not all of your beliefs are empowered beliefs as a result.  Take a look at their emotional limitations and decide to stop perpetuating the self-limiting beliefs.  You are strongly encouraged to drop release the cloak of family dogma and liberate your past experience of what you can and cannot do.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99

PISCES:  The New Moon Solar Eclipses influences your authentic self-expression, heart yearnings, love at the purest levels and all areas of creativity.  The past two years have been a learning cycle supporting you in actually "being" you!  Sounds so simple doesn't it?  Yet, it holds shadows of fear.  This fear is buried in the early childhood past and is seeking emancipation.  Take things step by step testing your comfort levels along the way.  With each step you will see that yes, you are alive and yes, you are ok.  Anyone in your social world that does not support your growth and expression needs to be released in order for you to fully live the life your heart and soul urgings require.  Developing faith in self.  A 3 month planning report covering this months Eclipse, Mercury retro in August and Pluto's forward movement in September. $8.99
