I am empowered by my Inner Strength and Divine Helpers
Oh great and mighty Jupiter,
Your blessings I do seek,
Your angels and guides send to me,
Good Spirits rich and sleek.
Good nature spirits and higher vibrations
Sent by God, your comradeship I love.
For bounty, success, and good fellowship,
My thanks are sent above.
Spirits powerful and great
Your riches I share in fun
And friendship true,
Prosperity descends on me,
My thanks sent deeply to you.
And now my Light is shining bright,
Rich and green for all to see.
Good fortune is my Law of Life,
I give thanks – to the Universe!
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered the sign of CANCER
Cancer, the first water sign, is the phase for personality integration and building an inspired home base in the world. Take the fiery independence of Aries, the fierce dedication of Taurus, the effervescent thinking of Gemini and weave them into a firm foundation for individual fulfillment. Represented by the armored Crab and the agile Cat, this sign reminds you to be shrewd and tenacious and to keep clawing your way to success. Old memories, a sense of history and family heritage provide a solid background for you to face the future with confidence. As you dispel the clouds of moodiness and emotional vulnerability, trust your feelings and your decision-making process and watch your psychic sensitivity grow in the process. A maternal, nurturing manner can be a comforting gift to relatives and colleagues over the Independence Holiday weekend.
July’s key aspects look much like a political convention, with all the hopefuls looking like more than a bit of hype. Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto will closely aspect each other from the 12th through the 15th, right after Mercury comes out of retrograde. The convention is scheduled to be held from July 13–16, 2020 in Milwaukee. Realistically that is the right month along with the right time of the month for the party who is out of power to nominate candidates for the top of their ticket. While Milwaukee may be the setting for high hopes and big dreams in general this three planet combination, especially with Saturn hiding quietly in the wings, can dash hopes as well as raise them. (Can anyone say “stock market?”) Then the astrologer went out to lunch and the dates changed because of the virus, to August 17–20, 2020. There is no way to be sure whether things will be in an up or down direction, and it’s for sure that, with the date change, there will be many shocks and surprises at this gathering after the last cheers and hurrahs have hit the ceiling as the balloons fall down to the floor.

ANIMAL: THE SALMON
Salmon — Wisdom/Inner Knowing
Salmon — Keeper of inner knowing
Illuminate all so that I can see,
Fill me with love and learning,
Life’s scared wisdom offered to me.
Salmon is the sacred keeper of wisdom and inner knowing. Who, despite strong river currents, will always return to the place of its creation. This fish’s determination is driven by the wisdom of instinct and inner knowing, which yields a sense of purpose that cannot be thwarted by external forces. Coming full circle, Salmon medicine people finish what they began, bringing life’s events and cycles to closure.
Salmon medicine honors every encounter in life as a gathering of wisdom. It teaches that even when the flow of life seems to push you can tap the hidden resources of your human spirit and personal inner knowing. The journey may not be an easy one, the currents of public opinion of public opinion may not be in your favor, but you can choose to honor the wisdom you carry and instinctively do what is right.
Salmon swam into the July energies and is advising you to trust your gut feeling and inner knowing at this time. Avoid the influence of those who may have hidden agendas or who manipulate events for their personal gains. Do you need to reflect in your personal experiences that will help you decide whether the tide is ebbing or flowing in a direction that benefits you and your forward movement and growth? Go back to the beginning and retrace your path to this point. The wisdom is inside of you, and when honoring it, you will not go wrong.
The silver of Salmon’s skin reflects its many lessons. To reclaim your inner knowing, you must see the opportunity in all situations and know that wisdom is earned through both life’s easy and difficult situations. Be willing to listen to others as well as to that small voice within. behave in a manner that honors your path. The proper use of inner knowing is when you flow with the authentic feelings within, embracing all the experience you encounter in life as lessons of opportunity instead of hardships. Salmon teaches you to see every bend in the river as a new adventure, containing a lesson you need to learn in order to grow. Thay knowledge becomes authentic wisdom when applying these truths to your life.

RUNE of the Month – FEHU
Fulfillment – Ambitions – Satisfied
Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment; ambitions satisfied, rewards received, love fulfilled. It also promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the sacred and the Divine. For if the principle “As is above so is below” is true, then we are here to also nourish God. This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well being, or rather self-rule and the growth of a will.
Another concern for Fehu is with conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in time of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of a well-nourished self is the ability to nourish others.
Observe what is happening in your life. If there is negativity, look at this with an open perspective and ask “What lesson do I need to learn from this in my life?” When there is an occasion for joy, do not be seduced into mindless joyousness. Remember that some doubtful situations can always arise and come in the form of many guises. Now that you have reached the top, stay sharp and awakened. All that is presented to you and this fulfillment is a part of the coming and passing away. In dealing with good fortune, know where it originates, from the Grace of the Divine, and recognize where your true nourishment lies.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.

STARGAZING FOR JULY, 2020
The July 5th Full Moon in Capricorn brings a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. The Luna Eclipse indicates endings, and brings to a closure the virus effects. Things should be brought under control now. It also can bring and end concerning the presidential election. Someone could drop out of the race. The intensity of this event could interfere with the USA Independence Day celebration. Best to stick close to home.
The July 20th New Moon in Cancer brings the second one in a row in the same sign. June’s was at early degree, and July’s is at the late degree. In the sky you can see both the Full Cancer and Jupiter, opposing it in Capricorn. This will bring test, challenges and oppositions. The fear, frustration, and pessimism that shadow Saturn make this an unfavorable time for a new start with the family or with any emotional issues.
Mercury remains retrograde through July 12th
The Personal Signs:
No sooner are you feeling okay with the world when the sky turns dark again and you find yourself struggling once more to get out from under. Don’ t allow yourself to run out of gas or energy. Rather than putting your famous impatience into gear, share what’s going inside with someone close. The only thing that matters right now is to maintain your status quo.
You feel a sense of lightness as July opens. You bask with the feeling that you’ve made it through that long, dark tunnel you thought would be trapped in for the rest of your life. Time to recharge your batteries, take a break, and get outside a bit. Be careful not to make any decisions regarding money this month; one, because it’s not the right timing for big expenditures and two because some unexpected expenses may likely crop up. Get ready to merge wisdom with potential, Taurus. This will manifest with your willingness to change and promises to be magical.
July brings you unsettled inner feelings. Learn to listen to the information given. Things seem a bit off center but allow that to flow through you for a short time. You’re in hyper-alert of your own making. You’re unsure of others and have become silent until you see which way the ball is going to bounce. This will pass. You have an opportunity with your job that you weren’t expecting. Can you take it and still continue with what you’re doing? Stay centered in your reality and trust yourself.
In July you finally know where your tenacity and inner strength come from.; deep within and it’s not from any outer force or any set of circumstances. You’re not in any mood for anyone to rain on your parade as you take your first wobbly steps into your future. One thing that is required of you is to be polite because it creates less drama and frustration. You are pleased and shocked to realize that you don’t need to reinvent yourself because have lot’s of skills and ability already in place to facilitate a new beginning.
The energies of July makes you feel as if the Boogey Man has returned. This feeling symbolizes the final chapter of letting go of some old, old, old incidents you had set aside to be healed when the time was right. Old emotions, self-criticism, childhood hurts, and unrealistic demands on yourself can all be let go of now. With all this inner turmoil you’re feeling, it’s best to share what’s going on with someone you trust. This can deepen your relationships in happy ways. Remember, letting go creates success by giving the space for your ideas and projects to grow.
July brings a time to maintain your equilibrium and don’t drag yourself down. Old habits and old perceptions are hanging around along with feelings of inadequacy. Don’t allow this to throw you off balance because you thought they were gone forever. This is your nature. The secret is what do you choose to do about them, not if they still exist. If you feel a bit anxious about relationships now, don’t blame yourself. Unfinished business shows up at your door out of the blue. Take a deep breath and know that you’re not responsible for this problem. Be clear. You just don’t need to do anything! August seems to have you out of sorts. Last month used up all of your reserves of patience and tolerance. Best to keep a low profile, take care and be good to yourself. The strongest, most resilient can find themselves up against a wall. When you get there, and you will, take a time out. Better yet, take a vacation.
In July, old patterns connected with duty and responsibility knock you off guard. This makes you wonder if what you’re pursuing is really in your best interest. Yes, they are. When fear begins to take over, it’s an opportunity to see and appreciate how much you are shifting into a new direction. It takes courage and strength to overhaul yourself from the inside out. For the first time this year, you are ready to spend some time with people you care about but are worried if you have burned too many bridges to do so. Much to your surprise you find that people are ready for you to show up as who you really are!
In July, old fears and habits come back to haunt you, freezing you in your tracks. It’s only momentary and not a disaster. No matter how much work you do on yourself, there is always experiences that trigger thoughts and emotions you thought had gone out with the garbage years ago. It’s your response that counts. They don’t have power over you unless you give it to them. Refrain from engaging in full-scale pessimism. Stop expecting life to be smooth sailing. A bump in the road is only a bump, not a mountain.
In July the wind gets knocked out of your sails. You may feel that life is uncompromising and rigid. This is just the final stretch to the finish line of a marathon. Everything hurts, and you’re having trouble breathing, but getting across that finish line will change your life forever. Not only will you appreciate yourself and what you’re made of, but you will get into deeper levels that you didn’t know existed. No one is going to be able to interfere with who or what you choose to be; especially when you’re committed to a healthier and wiser you. Take care that you are clear with your financial status. Something may have fallen into the cracks. After all, life’s been pretty intense this past year. It took all of your willpower and adaptability to master it.
July is your month for last hurrahs, Sag. Time to say good-bye to a number of beliefs and habits that kept you stuck in questioning some old habits and asking yourself what’s wrong with you. You now know that doesn’t help you pass the test and is not useful, helpful, or productive. It only keeps you trapped. Gone is the belief that you need to take on more responsibility in order to prove yourself. O that you can never come close to meeting others expectations. There is no doubt that you are going through a number of shifts at home and at work. This month you find clarity and strength to challenge a situation that has always left you holding the bag. Now you know that taking care of yourself isn’t selfish. In fact, it’s actually necessary if you want to fulfill your commitment.
It feels like that river you’re trying to navigate in your mind is beginning to flood once again. Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed. You know you’re about to master this wild, intense, and unpredictable life passage — finally! That’s why you feel exhilarated and not afraid. Now, that doesn’t mean you expect a smooth transition, far from it. It’s just that you trust yourself implicitly and welcome such a hard-fought accomplishment. In August, Your deep emotional healing process is almost complete, and you feel a shower of creative energy behind it. However, you cannot avoid the last step of clearing out all the mess you’ve stored within you, but couldn’t see it, much less deal with it. All that’s required is releasing the past, not reliving it. You can do it, Aquarius.
July brings you that one last push to realign your priorities and boundaries with that new-found strength to listen to yourself first and foremost. This brings a kind of inner peace that’s been hard to find this year. In fact you don’t feel as if you have to lift a ten-ton weight to get through the day. The emotional heavy lifting is behind you. Take a bow, Pisces. You’re inspired to begin to open up about how powerfully life has pushed you to the edge over the past eighteen months and you realize you have done more that just survive. You are thriving. Now it’s time to share your journey out loud. This brings you unexpected benefits as well as a deepening of some very important relationships.
