1. and 2.  Mars squares Neptune and Jupiter July 6, expanding (Jupiter) our drive and aggressive feelings (Mars) but also confusing and diluting them (Neptune).  This is a combination that can create some confusion; we may be lashing out with no particular direction.  
3. Mars forms a harmonious sextile to Uranus in the wee hours (EDT) of the 7th, energizing us with excitement and anticipation for something new.
4. Full Moon in Capricorn July 7 at 5:21 am EDT.  This is an eclipse, but it is a weak one.  However, the Mars squares in #1 and #2 are peaking at the time of the Full Moon which will intensify the power of the lunar event.  Emotions will be running high now.  As with all Full Moons there is a need to find balance.  Here we are balancing the outer life (Capricorn) with the inner one (Cancer).
5.  The Sun makes a harmonious sextile to Saturn on the 9th – a beautiful day for just about anything.  We are focused and aligned with our goals.
6.  The Moon is very active July 10, interacting with Neptune, Chiron, Neptune, Mars and Pluto.  Expect an active emotional day with some dramatic ups and downs.
7.  The exact conjunction of Jupiter to Neptune occurs July 10 as Jupiter retrogrades back to begin moving away from Chiron and Neptune.
8.  Mercury makes a nice sextile to Saturn on the 11th and 12th which helps to focus the mind and balance any communication problems.
9.  Mars enters Gemini late on the 11th which brings even more energy to the area of communication.  We will be tempted to more passionately defend our views and engage in vigorous debate.
