In the Stars July 3-10, 2022 . . . shining light on the astrology of the week

With the Sun in Cancer for the month ahead, the focus is on home and family, including motherhood. Abortion issues are front and center with the recent decision of the Supreme Court. Volatile planetary aspects between Mars and Eris in Aries, square to Pluto in Capricorn are at play this week. There are plenty of issues that could become more explosive: the January 6th investigation, the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, critical primary elections, the Russia-Ukraine War, and gun violence.

The crackle and pop of Independence Day celebrations likely will provoke tension in political and social issues in the culture, as well as in families.

Sunday through Tuesday morning the Moon shines in Virgo, signaling the time of the month to clean up and get organized. An early morning Moon-Mars trine lights a fire and propels us to get moving.

Monday, July 4th is Independence Day, typically a day of parades and gatherings. The Virgo Moon will drive us to attend to chores and practical matters before relaxing into celebrations.
