Since the transformative Eclipse Season of May, we have all been collectively asked to step into deeper layers of growth. This month, we have a major #HotSummer vibe and a few major cosmic alignments ahead. An opportunity to be more authentic, to speak our truth and trust our intuition. Let’s take a look at the astrology of July 2021.
♀️ Venus opposite Saturn ? – July 6:
While Venus represents social skills, our sense of beauty, finances as well as what we love and value, Saturn represents authority, duty, responsibilities and limitations. With this transit, there may be some guilt, hold-back, loneliness or restrain in your love life or finances.
Beware of clashing with authority figures like parents or teachers (that Saturn represents), or your own sense of “adulthood”. If you’re prone to depression, this day may feel more heavy than the others.
Be assured: your hard-work WILL pay off. You just need to stand strong and believe in yourself. Learn to love, value and honor yourself: that’s the ultimate lesson you can learn from this transit!
? New Moon in Cancer ♋︎ – July 9 / July 10:
Ready for another lunar cycle full of new opportunities and possibilities? The New Moon, happening at 18°01’ of Cancer on July 10, will be a time to start clearing up our emotional vaults and allowing new emotions, foundations, and structures to emerge.
Cancer is a sensitive, emotional, and introspective sign. Since the New Moon is in this Cardinal energy, you should take a moment to reflect on the themes that Cancer represents: the past, family, home, etc. Because Cancer is all about our inner stability and the comfort of our nest, you could also feel restless or hypersensitive this week.
Don’t allow passive-aggressive behaviors to take a hold of you. Acknowledge difficult, complicated, or negative emotions if they arise, and step into a more heart-based, courageous, and brave standpoint. Be gentle and practice self-care in order to soften the edges and soothe your irritability.

☿️ Mercury trine Jupiter ♃ – July 12:
Smart, chatty and intelligent Mercury is trining the exuberant, generous and growth-oriented Jupiter. In other words, this is a great day to use your intellect, your words, your mind and your wits to expand and grow.
You may feel extra lucky! Especially when it comes to signing contracts, negotiating, problem-solving or dealing with usually troublesome communications or debates.
♀️ Venus conjunct Mars in Leo ♌︎ – July 13:
Mars entered Leo on June 11th, I mentioned this here. Venus entered Leo on June 27. With these two personal planets in the sunny sign of the lion, this month is truly all about bravery, sovereignty, truth and uniqueness.
How do you portray yourself? How do you see yourself? How is your identity and personal brand built and what is it built upon? Allow your skills and gifts to share your core essence with the world. Use your creativity as a tool to reach more alignment.
With the magical union of the cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars, on July 13, it is bound to be a very potent time for inner alchemy between our Divine Feminine and our Divine Masculine, but also between soulmates, twin flames and lovers of all sorts.
There’s a sense of renewal and reset with this cosmic alignment, an opportunity to change how we are in relationships, how we give love, how we receive affection, but also how we make sense of partnerships in general. Stay alert to the people you may cross paths with during this day (2 days before and after as well).
☀️ Sun enters Leo ♌︎ – July 23:
Goodbye watery, emotional and cutesy Cancer season! Leo Season is all about heat, drama, self-care, self-expression and the creative endeavors that illuminate our core identities.
Ruled by the Sun, Leo is the sign of the solar plexus energy, our confidence, our sense of self. From this day forward, and until the end of August, we will collectively feel a lift and lightness in our energy.
You may feel more motivated and inspired to:
- Start a new (or old) project
- Draw attention to your uniqueness, nerve and talent
- Reconnect with your inner child, etc
Do not shy away from the spotlight or the opportunity to express yourself, this is the essence of Leo Season!
? Full Moon in Aquarius ♒ – July 23:
Full Moons are culmination points, a lunar phase where all is revealed, and where our emotions run high. With the Moon in the rebellious, humanitarian and quirky Aquarius, we will have the opportunity to see the results of all the efforts and energies we’ve been dealing with since February.
Friends, charity work, technology, communities, networking, original ideas and results… all of these could be popping up for you on this Full Moon, depending on where Aquarius falls in your birth chart. To know exactly how this cosmic event will play out for you (for this lunation and all the lunations to come), feel free to book my birth chart analysis.
By the way, and this is quite rare, we will have 2 Full Moons in the sign of Aquarius this year, this month at 1°25’, and in August at 29°36’. Whatever unfolds for you on this Full Moon week WILL come back (to either haunt you or bless you) next month. I’ll share more details about this in the upcoming newsletter and on my Instagram page.
☿️ Mercury opposite Pluto ♇ – July 25:
With this quick transit, we will have a lot more depth and obsession in our ideas and communication styles. Use this time to investigate, to research, to truly dive deep into the topics that interest you. You could even find yourself researching or thinking about the occult, hidden, mysterious and shadier areas of life. Don’t let this inspiring and intense time turn into obsession, manipulation or abuse.
Since Pluto deals with our shadows, and our ability to transform, it represents our inner Phoenix that needs to go through the process of death in order to come back alive. Avoid mind games, tactics or manipulative thought processes. Furthermore, beware of not being a victim of these things as well.
♂ Mars opposite Jupiter ♃ – July 29:
With the fiery, driven and go-getter Mars opposite expansive Jupiter, we will be collectively more prone to taking risks and even acting reckless to reach our desired goals around July 29. On one hand, you could feel more adventurous, outgoing, competitive and excitable. An amazing day for business, finishing or starting projects, going on adventures, etc.
On the flip side, you could overestimate your energy levels or resources: find a balance between courage and recklessness, watch your stamina and rest if needed. Also, don’t step on other people’s feet to reach your target: there’s more than plenty of room for everyone!
