July is our nation’s birthday. As a Cancerian Sign, our country’s character prioritizes family, security, home, motherhood, and apple pie. 242 years young! That is an “8” in numerology. This number is related to power and business success. There are some weird changes to our traditions, including the way we do business. We are in an upswing, but humans in power can cause bubbles, indicating bad economic decisions. Even deception is likely which is harder to find. Truth eventually breaks through, but there can be damage beforehand. So, Happy 4th! Always a good time to check our values against the original intentions of our founding fathers. They had it right, but greed can always screw it up. Words can give us renewed hope and energy. Actions still speak louder, however. Mars is retrograde and old embers may get stirred. The next 50 years are damaging to the USA if we initiate attacks on other countries. We end up losing even if we win. There are people planning wars as I write this, but we must restrain and only use military force in response to attack. The 8th could be the start of our Monsoon season in New Mexico. The 10th brings a glimmer of happiness back into our lives. Then, there is a partial eclipse of the Sun on the 12th but it’s not visible in New Mexico. Then the 13th comes along and makes everything all better, again. Mercury and Jupiter are quite prominent with their message. Jupiter keeps teaching some heavy subject matter and Mercury turns retrograde again at month’s end. This is the 2nd time this year for Mercury. This time in Leo, last time was in Aries, and the next time will be in Sagittarius. All three fire Signs take our thoughts inward to our spiritual cores. Individuals everywhere have suppressed anger to some degree or another. As we find the truth of who we are, we have a desire for action to correct what is obviously wrong with the world. Demonstrations will be seen all around the banquet halls of the well-fed and powerful. The time has come to get real and listen to our souls.
The Leo season is always fun and filled with power displays and lots of drama. It’s a time of year when differences can reach agreements. Leo month brings out an elegant nature that wants to dine in style, but like the Lions in the wild, we can enjoy dining outdoors under a shade tree. This is a time of pride and willful actions. Our leaders are tested in a spotlight of truth. This eventful month has a bad start, but there are great opportunities all throughout. There is a partial Solar Eclipse on the 11th, which will pass north of us and affect Russia. Anger will be stirred, and certain actions are threatened, but it’s all for show. Despite all the joy of August, there seems to be a built-in frustration factor, as well. There will be delays to big plans. There could be labor unrest as pay isn’t matching company profits, which belies the recent tax cut promises in the US. Public confidence could be low. Investments are best held for the long-term. As Virgo begins on the 22nd, we will become more flexible and adaptable in our labor and manufacturing. Some factories may find it easier to use older techniques in their systems when there is a long lead time for machine parts. That’s when it wouldn’t hurt to break out the hand tools. Great achievements can take years, like the Apollo program. This relates to our itch to take great strides into outer space. February of 2021 is the date for monumental accomplishments from our work today. There are plenty of amazing discoveries awaiting right here on Earth. Meanwhile, we must keep working on our dreams. People are beginning to use their united voices to bring changes. Remember why America was colonized. We wanted more personal freedom, and freedom of choice about religion. The only group to oppose our Declaration of Independence was the rich merchants of New England. Yet, somehow, we have given priority to the wishes of those who lust for power and riches. They are on a dead-end street with a motivated and highly aware wall of citizenry at the end.
