Today, July 15th, the Sun opposes Pluto retrograding in the sign of Capricorn.It’s good to be extra tuned into your motivations and aware of underlying personal issues that could express in destructive ways. Power grabs, side-stepping the rules, shady deals, and taking unfair advantage undermines reputations and long term goals. Honesty (with yourself and others) transforms and heals.
A new Moon culminates at 28 degrees of Cancer on Monday, July 20 at 1:33 PM EDT. New Moons bring new (emotional) beginnings and change. A seed is planted and likely takes root as a result of personal restrictions and limitations that have been worked through or diminished since July 5th. For the next five days it seems important to expand our repertoire of possible options and responses what’s been limiting, emotionally confining, depressing, or fear-inducing. Pluto uses a challenge to encourage us to dig deep to find and destroy the emotional/psychological root of the problem.
Also on Monday Jul 20th the Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn at 28 degrees of Capricorn. Something more emotionally well-balanced can be set in place. Difficult relationships related to home, family, or the past might require your attention. Balancing harsh realities with kindness and caring, setting limits, and asserting your authority seems wise. Being “the grown up in the room” eases you through emotionally tricky territory. The tendency to project your own frustrating issues onto someone else is strong.
On Tuesday, Jul 21, 2020, at 11:51 AM Mercury at 9 degrees of Cancer squares Chiron at 9 degrees of Aries. Words can wound. Speaking up can feel scary. But the truth needs to be shared. Summoning the courage to say what you have to say might be risky. But feeling more comfortable advocating for yourself is a skill that increases your effectiveness. This is a good week to initiate something new in the world of healing, to step up and share your thoughts, opinions, and ideas – even if it hurts.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
Words can wound. Speaking up can feel scary. But the truth needs to be shared. Summoning the courage to say what you have to say might feel risky. In the interest of making the kind of impact you want to make or initiating something new and promising it’s time to state what’s true and to speak courageously – to a partner, the family, or with regard to something that’s always made you feel vulnerable. .You can stay committed to a degree of diplomacy but an act of courage on your part seems powerful. Advocating for yourself is a skill that could be further developed. For the next five days (and beyond) it seems important to release something that continues to be emotionally confining, restrictive, fearful, or worrisome. Pluto’s influence encourages you to dig deep, to cultivate self-awareness, to get to the source, and to set yourself free. There’s an opportunity is to bring something related to nurturing, mothering, partnering and unfairness (possibly from the past) back into balance. An act of courage could change your perspective and your reality in a positive, integrating direction.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Discussions about love, money, parenting, the “ideal” and/or “dividing yourself in two” requires action that may be hard for you to initiate. A sense of loss, the need for sacrificing an ideal, or to find ways to transcend the current social climate might be important. Decisions may need to be made. Important paperwork and documents may need to be considered. The new Moon might present new opportunities and options for the future as your mind opens, your perspective changes, and your power expands. It seems important to make the connection, to make the call, or to say what you may be afraid to say. It may be time to acknowledge or reveal a hidden wound. Something you’ve been evading and avoiding might need to be acted upon. It might be the “last thing” you actually feel like doing. The pressure will intensify though and an opportunity is ripe. In any discussion of the future, freedom, foreign cultures, or spiritual aspirations, be careful to keep it straight forward and honest. The tendency to project your own frustration or need to control on another is strong. Stay in your lane and make sure the other stays in his.
Venus in your 1st house squaring Ceres in your 10th house of your career or professional life requires some action that may be difficult for you to initiate. Your love of communication and freely making new connections bumps up against parenting obligations, the cultivation of something you value, traditional responsibilities, sacrifices, and maybe a sense of loss within the realm of professional power. A commitment to love, children, and compromise may be challenged by the current social environment. The Sun’s opposition to Pluto requires a self-aware, tuned-in, maybe transformational approach to financial partnerships, balanced contribution, trust, and intimacy. It’s possible to project your own fears and frustrations onto another. In fact it may be hard to notproject. It seems important to have the conversation you may be afraid to have. Love and money can be treacherous territory for a conversation especially when problem solving is required. Beliefs about the nature of relationships and your role within them may need to be released so you can move in the direction of something more promising. Independence and free time when it comes to loving communication, initiating something new, or making a strong impact seems important.
For Cancer relationships may feels especially intense or consequential this week. The Sun energizing and illuminating your role within the realm of relationships is clarifying. An expansion of personal power or a newly opened mind could change your perspective on relationships in general. The caution this week is to be especially careful to avoid projection – projecting your own frustration, neediness, or controlling habits onto another. Self-awareness and the need for a balanced approach is key. If you’re thinking about sharing your ideas, opinions, thoughts, and knowledge within the professional realm you’re on the right track. It might take an act of courage to actually follow through. The rewards will come in the form of a more complete integration of an old wound into your life. You will become familiar with the accommodations you need to make to be heard. What you have to say is important. A commitment to the past – to home, family, roots, and old loyalties are being challenged by changing values, disruption and chaos, a lack of stability, or a lack of like-minded cohesiveness. You might need to make some adjustments to accommodate change or to re-enforce a sense of security.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
This week the Sun continues to illuminate your 12th house of things are hidden deep within your subconscious mind. To make it more interesting Pluto, in your 6th house of work, responsibility, and routine, opposes the Sun. There’s an interesting interplay between work, health, and an illumination (clarification) of what you actually need in order to feel safe, secure, and whole. Partnerships of all kinds may benefit as a result. Your willingness to say “I don’t know” or to openly admit to a vulnerability is an act of courage that might feel (surprisingly) empowering. Freeing yourself to explore the unknown (the unknown part of yourself) opens doors, new options, possibilities, and opportunities. Expanding your options seems inevitable. Old beliefs about love and sacrifice may need to be released as you become more receptive to the “quiet voice within” and follow it’s guidance. Leaning in the direction of doing what you love inevitably works to your advantage. Your relationship to work seems to be in the process of transformation. Being more honest and open with yourself and others seems wise.
VIRGO (August 21-Sep 21)
You may be afraid of the power you have to persuade and influence the masses through what you communicate. it’s tempting to take a pass on “rocking boat” within a social or community settings. This week it seems especially important to courageously share your thoughts, ideas, and opinions – for the sake of the community, friendships, and your social life. Working through an area of vulnerability related to communication represents an important step in integrating a wound that’s been left to fester “outside and alone.” Community contributions are influenced by the Sun/Pluto opposition this week. Something fortunate and life-expanding may open up within the realm of romantic love, creative self-expression, or with regard to children. As the Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn the impact on your own life and another’s could be profound. Being brought “back to life” in some regard may be a result. It’s good to be extra tuned-in to your motivations and aware of the temptation to project your own desires and fears onto another. You may have found the community cause or realm of enlightened service that feels right to you. Something profoundly honest brings light and healing to the world.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
Relationships might be extra challenging or intense this week. Compromise may be difficult. An angry, aggressive partner or client is difficult to appease. Someone wants to fight. Libra usually does what it takes to avoid that. But this week issues of balance and fairness that transcend the need for peace come into play. Courage vs. appeasement may be the issue. Finding the courage to say what needs to be said is a bigger victory than you might think. Your professional life vs. your home life may be an issue. A change in home or career is profoundly consequential as the past and future come into play. A “windfall” of some kind might alter the foundation of your life and career. As the Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn it’s good to be extra tuned-in to your motivations and aware of underlying personal issues that could express in destructive ways. Projecting your own darkness onto another – or having that done to you – requires extra vigilance and caution. Professionally you might be exposed to power grabs, side-stepping rules, shady deals, exploiting the weak, and taking unfair advantage.
A secret commitment to the dual nature of love – to two lovers, a financial partner, or honest communication might conflict with the joy of parenting, the feeling that something is lost, or needs to be sacrificed. Old fears related to an inability to improve, fix, or heal what’s broken need to be more fully integrated and transcended. Communicating and sharing your beliefs about the future, security, service, and your philosophy of life seems necessary. Elevating yourself above the fray seems important. Currently your vision for the future may be illuminated or clarified. The Sun currently opposes Pluto retrograding in the sign of Capricorn. It’s good to be extra tuned into your motivations and aware of old, underlying, personal issues that could express in destructive ways. Projecting your own darkness onto another – or having that done to you – requires extra vigilance and caution. Professionally power grabs, side-stepping the rules, shady deals, and taking unfair advantage of another’s weakness undermines reputations, families, security, and long term goals. Honesty (with yourself and others) transforms and heals. Courageous action can be taken when sharing your thoughts about sensitive issues with another.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
Financial partnerships and the realm of life related to intimacy, trust, sharing resources, and secrets is energized. Financial fear can distort and complicate the picture. It’s good to be extra tuned into your motivations and aware of underlying personal issues that are hard to control and tend express in destructive ways. It’s easy to project your own issues onto a financial or life partner. Professionally power grabs, side-stepping the rules, shady deals, and taking unfair advantage of another’s weakness undermines security, reputations, and long term goals. Being honest with yourself and others seems especially important this week. Expanding your personal financial power might seem important as it relates to your ability to be free to roam the world or expand your reach. An act of verbal courage and diplomacy seems necessary for the sake of empowering a partnership. Something more open-minded and adventurous may be considered. Your current lifestyle or location may be up for review. The issues may be contentious until you find a way to meet in the middle.
CAPRICORN (December 21-January 21)
Today the Sun opposes Pluto retrograding in the sign of Capricorn. It’s good to be extra tuned into your motivations and aware of underlying personal issues surrounding marriage, relationships, and the role you play within the realm of relationships. Considerations revolve around balance, equal give and take, emotional support, honesty, being up-front about what you need and what you’re willing to give. Projecting your own personal fear, frustration, or sense of powerlessness onto another is the danger. In your professional life power grabs, side-stepping the rules, shady deals, and taking unfair advantage of another’s weakness is destructive to reputations and long term goals. Honesty transforms and heals. A mixture of courageous verbal confrontation and diplomacy might yield the kind of results you’re hoping for – both personally and professionally. Creating a win/win seems wise. In the interest of financial stability – and stability in general – you might be unwinding an old, reflexively fearful style and approach to life. Something more compromising or conciliatory might begin to make more sense as you review the evidence and listen more carefully.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 21)
Behind the scenes powerful energies are coalescing to dilute and undermine old confining strategies, rules, and limitations that prevented you from expanding your power and reach. Something outside your range of awareness is dissolving in ways that will continue to set you free. Your work-life, daily routines, and health may be especially empowered or otherwise affected in positive ways. Something outdated and repetitive may be breaking apart. You may feel newly free to develop a more holistic, effective, personally satisfying, or soulful approach to your work and health. Your ability to inform your work with the powerful guidance of your intuition improves. The relationship between your work-life and soul-life may be enhanced. Old wounds related to fear, speaking freely, or courageously initiating something more controversial or courageous within the realm of your work life may be timely.
PISCES (February 21-March 21)
Pluto opposing the Sun in your sector of romantic love, creative self-expression, issues related to children, and the nature of the audience you tend to attract presents the need to be acutely self-aware this week. It’s good to be extra tuned-in to the nature of your motivations and aware of underlying personal issues that could express in destructive ways. Power grabs, side-stepping the rules, or taking unfair advantage of another’s weakness could undermine your long-term goals and your sense of security. It’s easy to project your own issues and darkness onto another – or to be the recipient of that kind of exchange. Pluto’s influence encourages you to dig deep, to cultivate self-awareness, and to set yourself free. Honesty (with yourself and the other) transforms and heals. This is a good week to courageously discuss issues and ideas related to love, money, and values. Some kind of action may be required in areas related to parenting, mothering, sacrifice, and loss.
