Stargazing – Week of June 29th through July 5th,, 2020

Jun 29, 2020 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

The week opens on a high note, but could end with a bang instead of fireworks.

On Monday morning and early afternoon, focus on existing projects or humble tasks during the void-of-course Moon.

June 30 brings the second of three conjunctions of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, between April and November. The virus went global at the first conjunction in April, so it will be interesting to see if this presents a calming influence on its path to the third conjunction in November or if the virus expands.

On the plus side, Tuesday signals large-scale achievements. Because both Pluto and Jupiter are retrograde, the focus is on your achievements from the past.

Pluto’s deep intensity plus Jupiter’s good luck along with attention to strong morals and ethics has the energy and strength to make something really big happen. The Pluto/Jupiter conjunction is rare because they only happen about every thirteen years.  What did you accomplish in 2007?

On a personal level, this is the halfway point of an eight month cycle that is helping you let go of old ways so you can expand your belief system to be successful in a globally changing world.

On this last day of June, Mercury is at the halfway point of its retrograde cycle (June 17-July 12). It’s time to start forward thinking, but allow room for changes and adjustments.

July 4/5 brings the last eclipse from the last 1 1/2 year in Capricorn and Cancer until 2027. Serious Saturn ends his brief test in Aquarius (since late March) and now moves backwards into Capricorn until mid-December to help you finish up any old business since he moved into Capricorn in December 2017.

Expect the fireworks to be hot and heavy this year on Saturday, July 4th, when our nation’s birthday coincides with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in early Cancer. At the highest energy point of thid lunar cycle, it’s traditional time to complete business projects and work out legalities or issues with authority figures.

A Lunar Eclipse on Independence Day is an indication of an ending that will affect the presidential race. I feel that Trump may drop out at the Republican Convention.

The intensity of this eclipse is an unfavorable time to schedule important events or sign any life-changing documents. Wait until after July 12th when the energies ebb and Mercury turns direct.

If your birthday falls between July 1st and July 7th, 2020/21 with be a life-changing time for you.

Mercury continues to be retrograde in Cancer until July 12th, and Venus has just ended her retrograde cycle and she is starting to move forward again, bringing activity in Real Estate and home renovations.
