Week of July 1st – July 7th, 2013

So just what does the cosmos have in store for you this next week? Mercury continues to be retrograde in Cancer until July 20th, so look at your emotional and self-nurturing needs. The New Moon will be focusing on love, family matters, and issues from the past that have not healed. Now that Jupiter has moved into Cancer for the next year, it will be interesting to watch what comes- Jupiter rules expansion and going to new levels, and the sign of Cancer has to do with the needs of the people, families, mothering, and home. We have already seen home prices starting to go up, and the Supreme Court decision on marriage is also expanding the definition on families.

Relationships may be less than rosy when the week begins due to Monday’s suspicious Sun-Pluto opposition and skeptical Venus-Saturn square. But sometimes knowing what you don’t want is the first step toward finding the fulfillment that follows.

The month starts with the Sun on the opposite side of the sky as transforming Pluto (called an opposition). The Sun (Cancer) part of this energy wants to be nurtured and have people around who support you emotionally, and Pluto (Capricorn) wants to keep healthy boundaries.

Take an honest look at yourself early this week, because there is an ongoing push to re-balance your life between creative freedom needs and practical responsibilities. The first week of July, 2013, can be exciting or disruptive, depending upon your ability to adapt. The July 4th holiday in the Unites States has the Moon in Gemini. This is good if you keep on the move, have short social conversations or short trips. The weekend is the dark before the New Moon, so choose activities that help you look within.

Saturn turns direct late Sunday evening, having been retrograde since February. The outer planets spend a lot of time in retrograde each year, so you need to pay attention on the days surrounding their change of direction. If projects have been put on hold since February, the weeks ahead (after Mercury turns direct on July 20) will help you get moving.

Remember that Saturn remains in Scorpio through 2014, so one key is to release that which you no longer need, both emotional and physical.

The Moon’s move into comfortable Cancer on Saturday afternoon connects to generous Jupiter, where optimism peeks through the clouds. Still, being selective about the company you keep makes it safer to release the strong feelings that are ready to flow during the rest of the weekend. Saturday is a great evening to share a meal with those who are in your comfort zone. Sunday’s wild Venus-Uranus trine encourages everyone to embrace the unexpected and explore the unknown.

A helpful Grand Sextile is building towards the end of this month in Water and Earth Signs; and at the same time, a challenging T-Square pattern is building to push you to get some aspect of your life moving. There is a lot of help available but it is going to require a willingness to change on both a physical and a belief system level. Allow room in your schedule for unexpected changes through this quick month.

Before you begin to navigate all this planetary action, be sure to point yourself in the right direction Why not delve more clearly into your heart’s desires with a 2013 Reading? Straight to the point, Elizabeth gives you everything you need to take advantage of the sheer power of the energies of 2013.

Your Love Week—Air Signs: Knowing what you want in a relationship and having the patience to work for it are essential keys to enriching your personal life this week. The magnetic planet Venus encounters hard-nosed Saturn on Monday, which either locks you out of love or shows you what you have to do to bring it to life. Taking responsibility for your situation may not be easy, but your honesty will reward you with much more pleasure in the end than fixating on how others have treated you. The Moon skips into Gemini early on Thursday morning to increase your inclination for shameless flirting and mischief making for the next couple of days. It’s all friendly and harmless as long as others know that you’re just playing games. However, messages may be wildly misunderstood with the planet Mercury still running in reverse. Taking the time to think carefully before speaking avoids confusion with new people and helps you to restore trust in an ongoing relationship. Thursday morning with the Moon flitting around in jaunty Gemini, wit and playfulness turn heads in your direction for the next two days, Air Signs. If you’re normally the serious type, it’s a time when being funny and friendly is much more alluring than acting like a professor. After all, is anyone really a master at the game of love? Leave room for sweet surprises when sensual Venus trines unpredictable Uranus on Sunday. This trine inspires you to experiment when it comes to relationships. Feel free to flirt if you’re single or to be wildly spontaneous with your partner without worrying about your final grade.

Your Love Week—Fire Signs: It’s a one-two punch for you Fire Signs this week, starting with Monday’s Sun-Pluto opposition. Power struggles are likely, and it might take some soul searching to figure out which side you are really on. You could be feeling restless and less than cooperative when the willful Sun crashes into a stressful square with high-frequency Uranus on Thursday. This nervous tension shakes up a partnership and might help you to make some overdue changes. If you feel stuck with someone or simply stuck in your own life, taking a radically different approach to connecting and relating could provide the romantic breakthrough you need. Romantic expectations and dramatic expressions of feelings are stirred this week by playful Venus in Leo; Friday’s mood could be frivolously flirtatious, yet matters of the heart grow more serious on Saturday evening. Be tender with yourself and extra sensitive to others to build the trust necessary for true intimacy. Showing your vulnerability may be risky, but paves the way for getting closer to someone you love. The nurturing Cancer Moon connects with the planet Jupiter on Saturday night, setting you up for a memorable evening, but it’s your sweet sensitivity to others that makes this magic possible. Adapting your plans or shifting your behavior to show someone else how tender you are may not normally sound like your idea of a good time. Yet the rewards you receive for doing some delicate emotional work can fill your heart with joy and delight.

Your Love Week—Water Signs: You may be wondering who you can trust now with the Sun opposing the planet Pluto on Monday. You need to dig deep to discover who and what your heart really wants. It may be difficult to know if someone is being serious with you now, or you might even be confused about your own emotions this week. The only way to be sure, or at least come closer to the truth, is to talk about your feelings. Miscommunication is a common source of relationship issues, so don’t be embarrassed to admit if you’re not entirely clear about what’s going on. Friday with the breezy Gemini Moon will make your life much less complicated. And, amazingly, even sticky problems with a current partner could dissolve without a struggle. Sure, relationships are serious business, but taking them lightly on Thursday and untangling knots of uncertainty takes maturity, patience and compassion, yet sticking with the process can allow love to flow freely again on the weekend. Friday is perfect for having fun when it comes to games of love. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the moment instead of bringing up the past or thinking too much about the future. Love can go through many phases this weekend when the Moon swims into caring Cancer on Saturday afternoon. There will be moments of both tenderness and tension with lunar connections to generous Jupiter followed by aspects to disruptive Uranus and formidable Pluto. Intuiting when it’s time to give to others and when to take care of yourself allows you to ride these big waves of change with a joyful sense of discovery. Shine your love-light simply by opening your heart. Results could be shimmering!


Strive to be honest on Monday. You’ll regret it if you lie to a colleague. Put your best foot forward. Show the world how talented you truly are. Enthusiasm will be your middle name. The possibilities of life will seem endless. Your stubborn side will be on display when the Moon in Taurus opposes Saturn on Tuesday. The word “compromise” won’t be in your vocabulary.

You will be tempted to overindulge your appetites on Thursday. Strive for moderation in all circumstances. The boss could change your job description on Friday. It’s possible your employer will give you more responsibility. A partner could be jealous on Friday. This person will take offense if you flirt with another!

Your Love Week—Earth Signs: The week starts out on an emotional note with the Moon’s move into Taurus on Monday afternoon, and an isolating Venus-Saturn square makes it difficult to feel optimistic about love. Even the best-intended friends may fool you with inaccurate information now. Mental Mercury is still traveling in reverse motion, which complicates conversations and confuses matters. The Moon’s entry into flighty Gemini on Thursday afternoon can scatter your attention and mislead you with gossip. Avoid over-thinking issues when it’s really your feelings that know the right way to repairing a relationship or connecting with someone new. The Moon slips into cautious Cancer on Saturday afternoon to put relationship issues into the spotlight. You could attract a sensitive and complex person who requires understanding and a gentle touch to let you get close. If you want the delicious intimacy of trust and affection, going with the emotional flow instead of insisting on following the rules is the best way to achieve your heart’s desire. Keeping secrets is a natural response to uncertainty about relationships this weekend. Whether you’ve been wounded or are worried about hurting someone else, sharing your feelings is called for starting on Saturday night. Words matter, of course, but listening with your heart as well as your head is the key to establishing trust and creating intimacy. Naturally, staying silent is also an option if you’re content to remain in your own bubble for now. Set logic aside and listen to your intuition when it comes to love.
