Stargazing — Week of July 13th through July 20th, 2020

Jul 13, 2020 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

Mercury ended his retrograde cycle on Sunday. The action this week falls on Tuesday when Jupiter in Capricorn oppose the Sun in Cancer. This opposition can open the door to opportunity if you keep in mind the tendency to over-extend with Jupiter energies. Jupiter is closest to the Earth at this time, so go out and look at the night sky to enjoy the beauty of this benevolent planet. Watch the tendency to feel over-optimistic, impractical, and highly self-indulgent.

Monday evening there is a dreamy aspect between the Sun and Neptune.  Meditate, watch a movie, or sit by the water while gazing up at the planet Jupiter.

Tuesday and Wednesday has the Cancer Sun opposing Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. It’s not a good time to push your philosophy or obsess on world events, but it is a good time for an introspective review of what is getting in the way of creating your goals (and external world situations are not what gets in the way, it’s your inner emotions. Try to open your belief system). Even though Pluto is closest to the Earth at this time, it’s too far away to be seen. This aspect is never easy because Pluto’s function is to seek, destroy all negativity, and transform your deeply buried internal conflicts.

With these two face-offs in play, your best bet this week is to go within, dig down deep inside and try not to exaggerate or over-react.

The Moon moves through Gemini on Thursday and Friday, great for quick social appearances or catching up on communications now that Mercury is moving forward again.

Stay close to home on Sunday as the Moon is in home and family Cancer. Prepare a family dinner for everyone, like we did in the old days. Share your feelings around the dinner table.
