In the Stars July 17-24, 2022 . . . shining light on the astrology of the week

The Full Moon that occurred a few days ago held potent energy for change. The Capricorn Moon was conjunct Pluto, urging us to attend to responsibilities and complete projects over the next two weeks before the New Moon.

The Sun is now in its last few days in Cancer; on Friday it moves into fun-loving Leo. This is a stormy week, particularly on Wednesday and Thursday.

Jupiter is slowing to turn retrograde on July 28. Mars will conjunct Uranus and the North Node August 1-3, an extremely volatile configuration.

Sunday may be a tense day due to the Sun’s square to Eris. However, the Pisces Moon’s sextile to Uranus may help us shake off the pricklies. Venus moves into compassionate Cancer, and the Moon makes four benefic aspects with other planets, reminding us that we have a new day ahead. However, a Mercury-Pluto opposition may lead to feelings of vulnerability and defensiveness, but we can overcome these obstacles.
