Putting in my cheery, quarterly appearance. 🙂
On this very first Sunday, in sweltering July, in the northern hemisphere, waxing Luna’s diligent ingress into corrective Virgo territory (8:31 am) suggests a golden opportunity for us to adeptly tinker under the hood to see what might be amiss.
Too, with Luna’s planetary ruler Mercury, in data-gathering Gemini, and quincunx to probing, obsessive Pluto in Capricorn, a possible manifestation here might be that our observations about what’s malfunctioning may duly require us to detail it all in at least a 30-page spreadsheet report replete with picture-perfect margins!
The more health-minded Virgo Moon is also supportive of detox or cleansing efforts.
“Life is an error-making and an error-correcting process.” – Jonas Salk
Also, keeping a close eye now on action-planet Mars nearing the end – or 29th degree – of adventurous, assertive Aries, often a time associated with sudden, last-minute efforts to accelerate or push things forward before we transition into other areas. Mars will enter bullish Taurus on Tuesday, July 5th, a period when we seek to anchor and consolidate matters, including our finances.
“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” Epictetus.
(By the way, Albert Brooks also offers up in his wonderful new book From Strength to Strength that a person’s level of satisfaction is generally derived from dividing up what they have by what they want. Such a nice, simple formula, isn’t it? I think practicing gratitude for what we have can also help to foster a greater sense of inner well-being.)

On This Day in History: On July 3, 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg, the largest battle ever fought on the American continent, ends in a major victory for the Union during the US Civil War.
Astrologically, that day, warrior Mars, in confident, authoritative Leo, was applying, one degree, to an exact square to transformative Pluto, an intense aspect often associated with a strong desire to assert one’s dominance, no matter the cost. The protective, more patriotic-minded Cancer Sun was also sextile Pluto and trining wounded healer Chiron in Pisces.
Gettysburg is considered the “high watermark of the rebellion.” After Gettysburg, the Confederate army would never again regain its momentum.
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
