Your Moon Astrology Forecast For July 2015

…and then with gay marriage legalized, no one ever discriminated against anyone based on orientation ever again. The End.

Knowing when the Moon Void of Course is happening is probably the handiest of all the common astrological techniques. Learn it, make it work for you, and save yourself tons of unnecessary aggravation!

(CLICK HERE for more on what The Void of Course Moon actually is, and what you can do about it — or rather, what you should avoid doing during that time. Looking for tips on handling those times when they happen? Click HERE.)

July 2015 is unusual in that it will see not one but two Full Moons. There is no particular significance to this other than the fact that it will give you the opportunity to experience unusual agitation and moodiness twice while only having to flip the page on your calendar once.

What’s much more significant is the New Moon on the 15th. The New Moon is always a good time to plan out how you want the next month your life to be different from last month, and since the particular New Moon is square Uranus and Mars is square Pluto, your plans should carry additional punch. Like, really serious punch. Like, put that chainsaw down punch.

One piece of good news for July? Despite Mars still being in Cancer, it is statistically unlikely you will kill anyone in an outburst of spiteful rage, and it is unlikely anyone will do that to you. You’ll probably feel like it at some point though, and so will the others around you, so let’s all play nice out there okay?

Venus goes retrograde on the 25th in Leo, which means that your general fretfulness over hairstyles will continue for about a month longer than expected. Sorry about that — blame the humidity.

Next day on the 26th, Uranus goes retrograde at 20 degrees Aries. Among other things, this means that any weirdness and annoyances but the planets in your birth chart near the 20 degree mark have experienced in the last month or so will likely be aggravated. Again, feel free to blame the humidity… or Mars in Cancer.

Note: Times listed are for time zone 5 hours West, DST is observed… or as we say in New York, “you do the math, pal!”

I Refuse To Discuss Mars In Cancer

posted by Matthew Currie

Last time, I discussed how the current transit of Mars through Cancer will have a tendency to make people moody, irritable, and blame the wrong person or situations for their problems. Having studied the nature of Mars in Cancer further in order to get into character to write this blog entry… I have decided not to write about those transits at all. And it’s all your fault.

Sure, I had originally planned to write the usual thing you’d expect to see hear about how you can learn to work with these energies and how you can keep your cool during the difficult days and yadda yadda yadda. I would have probably mentioned that I was listing the exact dates but that you should add a couple of days on either side of those dates will the transit is still in effect. But I’m not going to do that. You’re on your own people.

I don’t particularly care any more that Mars trine Neptune on July 8 will tend to make people kind of weepy but mystically inclined. I’m too busy being angry with God about how he could make me so fat.

But surely, you may wonder, isn’t Mars opposite Pluto on the 15th worthy of mention? To which I can only say: what is that supposed to mean? Are you looking for a fight? What do you mean I’m irritable? Shut up!

Shut up shut up shut up SHUT UP!

I couldn’t care less about how Mars square Uranus on July 25th will make for explosive situations and sudden flare ups of temper. And if you keep asking me about it I’m going to delete this entire blog. That would teach you all a lesson.

Oh, you say, what about Mars trine Chiron on the 26th? Won’t that be a chance to make a lot of breakthroughs when it comes to our deep psychological wounds and scars? Yeah, whatever. I’ve got my own problems to worry about.

Will Mars trine Saturn on August 6th be a constructive time to put your emotions to good use? Sure it will. I’m going to use it to build a big concrete bunker to live in so I don’t have to deal with people any more.

And finally, when Mars enters Leo on August 8th, will that tend to make for a change in people’s moods and how they express their drives ambitions and aggression? Sure. Probably. I don’t care. I’ll be in my bunker. Leave me alone.

Say Nice Things About Mars in Cancer (Or Else)

posted by Matthew Currie

Once you start digging into astrology, you’ll come across the concept that some planets work better in some Signs better than others. All the planets rule at least one of the Signs, and those placements are considered pretty strong… like Sun in Leo or Mercury in Virgo. Even better: each planet also has a Sign in which it is considered to be “exalted”: a placement where, in theory,  that planet does its very best work, like Moon in Taurus or Venus in Pisces.

Any planet opposite the sign of its exaltation is said to be in its “fall.” This doesn’t mean you’re automatically doomed if you have Jupiter in Capricorn or Venus in Virgo for example, but placements in their fall can be inherently difficult to work with. Mars is thought of as exalted in Capricorn, and thus is in its fall in Cancer.

Welcome to one of the trickiest of all planetary placements to work with: Mars in Cancer!  Cancer is a highly sensitive, imaginative, and nurturing sign. It is naturally associated with activities like feeding babies and collecting antiques and quietly sulking. Cancer, generally speaking, would rather sit at home and read in bed then go out adventuring.

Mars, on the other hand, likes action. Mars prefers to find solutions to things by shooting them, stabbing them, or blowing them up. Mars doesn’t want to sit around and wait for anything. Mars doesn’t want revenge: it wants to avoid having to get revenge by winning in the first place… but if revenge is required, so be it.

As you can imagine, putting these two energies together is pretty darned awkward. Mars in Cancer is energetic but has a hard time directing that energy properly. Mars in Cancer is easily provoked by emotional arguments. Mars in Cancer often have a hard time knowing where to direct its anger, and once it chooses a target it can get ugly and messy with it. Sometimes Mars in Cancer will choke on its own rage rather than take action, and sometimes it’ll just choke you because it’s had enough.

Mars in Cancer is going to pinch you really hard if you don’t put that camera down, pal.

Just as Mars in Cancer can lead to these problematic effects in a birth chart, it can produce similar results when that is its current location in the sky, like it is between now and August 9th. It’s a powerful energy to work with, but like making a soufflé, it can be really tricky and take a lot of practice. Don’t worry though… I’m going to walk you through it.

Next time: your survival guide to the current transit of Mars through the sign of cancer. Bring protective gear.

Astrology For Women: A Man Explains It To You

posted by Matthew Currie

(Editor’s Note: Matthew Currie is unable to provide a blog entry today. Instead we present a blog entry from someone named The Other Matthew Currie. The Other Matthew Currie is also an astrologer, and resembles Matthew Currie in most respects, with the exception of a small beard like the one Evil Spock had. This blog entry does not in any way shape or form endorse the views or opinions of either Beliefnet or Matthew Currie, but apparently Matthew Currie’s contract with us allows this substitution. And yes, we are having our Legal Department look into this. In the meantime please accept our apologies. We hope to have the situation resolved soon.)

Hello everyone! I’m glad you could join me today because I am hoping to lead you all on a magical adventure to unleash the true power of astrology!

It has occurred to me for some time now that the majority of people who follow astrology are female. This field of endeavor attracts men, sure… but for the most part when you find person who have a real interest in astrology it’s a woman.

I like women. My mother and several of my relatives are women. But I can’t help but notice that the position of women in society, although vastly improved over the last few decades, somehow appears to be unequal to that of men. I have heard numerous reasons as to why this is, but I have decided to take a new approach to the matter.

I believe that the position of astrology in society will be greatly improved if more women are able to loudly and proudly embrace it. As a man, it is my job to explain to you exactly how this should be done. You’re welcome.

I have been reading many of the most popular websites for women, and I have come to the conclusion that astrology, as it is marketed today, is entirely too empowering and liberating and strives too hard to understand life’s bigger issues. These websites that are so popular for women that I’ve seen take a much different approach. It is my intention to follow their lead, and thus benefit astrology as a whole. Oh, and you too, ladies.

It appears that many of the most popular web destinations for women take a simple two-pronged approach to their audience: address your needs and desires, and then explain how you can overcome your deficiencies to get them.

Let me give you some quick examples of how I intend to do this — provided the original Matthew Currie is unable to return to this blog. Matthew, as some of you may already know, went into the basement of his apartment building a couple of days ago to investigate some unusual noises and has not returned. I trust you all join me in praying for his quick and safe reappearance. There is an awful lot of gardening equipment stored down there, and I’m sincerely hoping that nothing terrible has happened.
