This week, the bulk of the astrology forecast occurs over a three-day window beginning on Tuesday and ending on Thursday. The two biggest features are Jupiter moving out of Aquarius and into his sign of Pisces and a New Moon in Taurus, the sign of the bull.
Let’s start with the big kahuna, Jupiter in Pisces…
Astrology Hot Spots:
Jupiter in Pisces
This week Jupiter says goodbye (at least temporarily) to the sign of Aquarius and movies into Pisces until July 28th when he will return to the sign of the water bearer.
Pisces is the sign associated with collective dreams, but what does that even mean?
Well, we all have dreams and not just when we go to sleep. We have visions of how we would like our lives to be. WE have dreams about a perfect world and a perfect society. Some of us even have dreams of a perfect cheesecake – mine is raspberry flavored. But there are dreams that are bigger than individual dreams, they are the collective visions and aspirations of nations, groups, generations (current, previous, and those no longer with us), and even political parties. All dreams and collective visions are governed by the sign of Pisces.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and when he dives into the deep waters of Pisces, those collective dreams of a perfect world will become a predominant theme over the next year. Carl Jung (one of the pioneers of modern psychology) believed that everyone’s dreams and aspirations add to the whole, and it is this energy that is at the deepest core of Pisces, and the actions we take as individuals decide whether those dreams solidify into tangible realities. So, it’s a great time to focus on our higher aspirations, what we would like to see happen in our lives and in the world in the future. According to the kabbalists, the most powerful force in the universe is unity (another lovely Piscean word) but to effectively create change, we all need to do our part to uplift and inspire a better tomorrow by beginning to dream — and DREAM BIG!
New Moon in Taurus
The New Moon this month lands in the sign of Taurus. Taurus is about prosperity, money, and self-worth. So, getting control over your finances, planting seeds for financial stability, and improving your self-image are constructive ways to work with this month’s New Moon, especially if you do intention or magical work
This month the New Moon makes only favorable aspects to Neptune and Pluto. The Moon’s sextile to Neptune softens Taurus’s outer shell and provides opportunities to connect on a deeper level in relationships, and it allows you to become more sensitive to the emotional needs of others. Whereas the trine to Pluto helps you stand in your own power and gives you the moxie to make changes that are necessary. Overall, this is a gentle New Moon, and it may be a bit of cosmic relief before eclipse season begins at the end of the month.
