This flower essence healing astro report for July is full of healing energy. This month is bringing a lot forward for so many. The ideal, to empower, release and liberate. June felt like a very long month and yet here we are, over half way through 2019.
A timely reminder perhaps that time is fleeting. Even if it feels like it’s standing still. It’s not. The world is always moving. It never stops.
There are currently 6 planets in a retrograde motion. Through July, so much can move through and for us whilst at times things may feel like they are coming to a halt. This is the retro dance in action.
Still a power packed month, full of eclipse energy. We’ve the chance to fast track what we want and need. Decluttering on our terms if we’re listening and step in and up on what’s asked of us.
The theme. Claiming our inner power. For July – We get the chance to venture inward and expand our conscious awareness. Before stepping out and strutting our stuff in the latter parts of this year.
Planning could be very much a day by day basis. Nothing may feel set in stone. It’s important to keep an eye on the prize. On the future vision. Even being open to creating a new one. Eclipses can bring things in and out of our sphere – this July is no exception.
Being in the natural Home and family sign of Cancer – these are themes. This includes feeling home in your own skin no matter where you are.
Questions about our destiny, especially over the next 6 months, may crop up. With the clash of the heavy weights Saturn and Pluto coming together in January 2020. This configuration, saw Martin Luther separate from the catholic church some 500 years ago.
Keep your wits about you.
These coming eclipses also set the scene with something, someone, some habit, or some way of thinking you need to break away from.
The Flower Essence Healing for July
The flower essence healing on offer is the Blue China Orchid
June saw us come up against some pretty strong astrology. For some, it’s shown how we want to be across everything. So many have felt increasingly exhausted, tired, ill and vulnerable. And if we don’t look after our health, feelings of overwhelm can settle in.
July although unpredictable – gives a chance to slow down and reflect
Old negative imprinting has also come or is arising to the surface. It’s time to clear it – I have a range of flower essence remedies that can help. You can check these out here. I also offer remote and in clinic sessions to clear pain and help you find you again. You can check it all out here.
The Blue China Orchid can make things feel easy. This essence may help us let go of old habits. Mental and Emotional.
It may strengthen the inner will. Awakening the realisation that you’re the directorship of your life. Take back control if you need. Releasing old patterns of behaviour. Maintaining inner focus and consistency towards establishing a fulfilling life, love and career.
Habits are familiar. With so much “going on” this month – taking the leap past these would be the icing on the cake. This month has the capacity to liberate us in some way. Moving us forward in ways we’ve been longing for.
A way that feels more aligned with what we want to manifest, be and feel in life.
Changing the way we, see, feel and do things – it takes effort on our part. This includes efforts with determination, energy and some kind of focus. Blue China Orchid strengthens the will to do so.
Slow down to connect
Chiron, the wounded healer, takes on its retrograde spin within the first weeks. Independent reflection maybe on order. As I mentioned before keep your eye on your bigger picture. If you’re not sure what that is – you may by Spring. There’s a lot of inward processing on offer to create this clarity. You’ll have your answers soon enough.
Coping strategies may be in need of an upgraded. And the time needed to be included in the every day.
- Saturn, disciplinarian, the task master.
- Pluto, – the planet of death and rebirth.
- Neptune, The planet of intuition, illusion and delusion.
- Jupiter – planet of expansion. Time to expand within.
- Mercury communication and mental processing. We operate more on a subconscious level at this time. Communicating from the heart is always the best way of operandi.
- Chiron – the wounded healer –
Are all moving through their backward spin. Soak up and embrace the internal changes.
New moon eclipse 3rd July
The New moon eclipse gives us the opportunity to let go of the old and set a new path – in the sign of family and home, Cancer. Feel centred within yourself and your life.
You may feel a little impulsive to get things done. Have a grounded out look and allow inspiration to fall. Enrich yourself in it. Don’t judge things too quickly and make impulsive decisions in the moment – there’s still a bit to play out.
Some of us could feel weighted down through Saturn’s gaze. You may feel the need to take responsibility for something. Or there’s some liberation that comes from some kind of sacrifice.
The Jupiter and Neptune square has been playing out on and off all year. An aspect that can activate delusions of grandeur. Have a big plan by all means. Be realistic too.
There’s a need for the tangible now.
Staying with the familiar, even if you’re so freaking bored, is one of those things you may need to observe.
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
This new moon could be a wonderful new start in rebuilding your inner and outer foundations and moving you out of the comfort zone.
On the 4th – Venus moves into the home town of Cancer. This is the space and time you may attract exactly what you need. Our immediate environment needs to be a nourishing and a safe place to land should we need it. It would be in your best interests to ensure that.
The deep dive within
So many are dealing with or sitting on the precipice of some big changes. The eclipses will fast track these.
With the moon in Cancer. You may want to feel it’s way through. When heavy emotions present feel into that. Watch them melt away. Giving clarity and relief with ease when you acknowledge and integrate this knowing
Some part of your identity maybe dying off. Declutter. Friendships and business associations may take a step back. Making room for new conceptions or even new connections.
Trust and affirm.
Instinct, drive and intuition
Saturn and Pluto Capricorn are influential. Our conditioning and the questioning of certain traditional patterns are being challenged.
Challenges between wants, needs vs the expectations of the “real” world. Reality could bite. There’s a moment when you realise you can have and do it all – with a simple plan and attitude adjustment.
Write it all down the plan, the ideas, and research your big vision. These realisations are opening up for you for a reason. Be grounded. This will create a sense of congruence with it all. It will also help it to manifest with ease.
With the stern and reactive energy of Saturn, progress may slow down so be aware. A change in pace between the masculine dynamic energy and the passive feminine within us all. There’s a call for balance.
Simply allow what is.
Life is what we create it
Look outside the box. Create and work in ways that bring freedom to the everyday.
As I mentioned prior, being realistic is key. Don’t move into unnecessary excess with the Jupiter/Neptune configurations that have played out on and off all year. This can also be related to how much energy you actually have for things. Pull back if you feel you’re pushing against your natural grain.
This energy can awaken a sense of unrealistic expectation. Our optimism can lose sight of what it means and what’s needed to create it.
On the 17th July Full Moon Eclipse
A doozy of a moon with aspects to Pluto and in the sign of serious Capricorn.
This one may show you where and how your emotional needs are or are not being met. Honesty is the best policy for yourself and those around you.
If you’re coming up against relationship changes. Step forward and empower yourself despite what judgements are being projected at you. Individual actions can have an impact on the greater whole. Choose something different, react differently. Break those patterns, those habits and ingrained triggered reactions.
Express how you feel in a new empowered way. This moon may propel and give us the desire to be heard. Play nice
Know too, that opinionated voices may be strong. Detach if you find this vexatious.
This could be a time to reinforce your boundaries. Play fair.
Venus will sit opposite Saturn. A realignment with power and control within a partnership. Certain truths may come to light.
Because the full moon magnifies things – our emotions specifically. Something could be blown out of proportion.
Lunar eclipses usually bring an end to something. Changing long established patterns can challenge the status quo and that’s a good thing. Ripples like this are what’s needed.
Many of us are tired. This is not a seasonal thing. Tired of the same old same old or feeling dimmed within their own experience. There is a little deflation and worry around climate change, our political climate and how much we can influence change in any of these areas.
The answer: By looking after yourself. You can easily access the intuitive faculties and your creative inner resources if your ‘self’ is nourished. This is where the true answers lie. It also stimulates hope and positivity for our future. Those intentions we set with the new moon and (every week if you practice this) have a sure way to fly if we care enough to care for our own soul.
Hints for July
- Trust, have faith, hope and get and be inspired.
- Stay in the moment. In the today. Especially through the eclipses at new moon and full moon
- Listen. Be open to receive
- Self-care, self-nourishment, rest where you can, more so than normal.
- Release old stories. Reconfigure old habits. Find ways to refocus the mind.
- Know what it means to be at home with yourself – no matter where you are.
- Detach if you feel overwhelmed
- Play nice
- Double check plans.
It’s becoming more and more prevalent the choices we make in any given moment. Set the tone, the ideals, and the energy in which we want to live and work. There’s definitive shift in the air.
Take the time out. Upgrade where you can.
Sit with what arises. Don’t be afraid to dig deep. This is the month to do it.
“Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future” Daphne Rose Kingman
