July Astrology preview by Tara Greene

Highlights of July Never a dull moment

July Astrology aspects Tara Greene

Things are very emotional, we are feeling sensitive and family oriented, with home and lots of foodie things up until mid-month with Venus in Cancer, until the 11 and Mercury in Cancer until July 13 and of course Sun is in Cancer too until July 22. Cancer is governed by the Moon and we are all feeling the lunacy.

In the TAROT the symbol for CANCER is the card of the CHARIOT # 7 

The Chariot of Apollo, by Odilon Redon, Astrology Tara Greene

The Chariot of Apollo, by Odilon Redon 1908 

The traditional Chariot shows a Knight in a Chariot pulled by two horses one black and one white, or 2 sphynxes. The #7 on the card relates to cycles, the cycles of the Moon most notably, but of all the planets, the 7 days of the week etc.  It is a symbol of knowing the emotional body is the vehicle of the soul and learning to control the emotions by being centered in the body.

The planets are doing a lot of rubbing shoulders the wrong way with many inconjuncts or quincunx’s 150 degree angles between them all month. These aspect make people irritable, breaks down communications. We need to find ways to translate and to interpret what each planetary need is expressing as each is trying to say to get its own needs met as it interacts with another.
