Oh My Stars

A typical horoscope lays out what you can expect for yourself in the next week or month based on your Sun Sign. That sort of thing is great, sure… especially if you happen to be the only person on your planet. Astrology, like life in general, is a lot more complicated than “there are twelve types of people, and here’s what’s going to happen to them today.”

This “horoscope” is a listing of the major planetary aspects, ingresses, and events for July 2017. Each aspect is described below, with the date the aspect is exact and a “+/-” which indicates the number of days that aspect will be most in effect. Generally, the closer to the exact date, the more pronounced the effect of the transit. And of course, as with everything else in life: your mileage may vary.

But first, a word about aspects in general. Conjunctions, squares and oppositions can all be difficult. They generate the sort of energy that can get all up in your face and is hard to ignore, but it’s hard to get much done in life without the raw energy they supply. Trines and sextiles are helpful and constructive, but it’s easy to miss out on the opportunities they provide unless you make an effort.

July  2, 2017    * Mars opposite Pluto *
(+/- 10 days) This is dominant aspect for the first part of this month. There’s tension in the air, and an urge to break things rather than fix them.

July 4, 2017  Venus enters Gemini
An excellent time to talk your way into someone’s heart, or out of trouble.

July  4, 2017    Mercury square Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Original ideas, but difficulty in making them work or be understood properly.

July 5, 2017 Mercury enters Leo
Not the most detailed-oriented of Mercury placements… but a good time to plan on having some fun and expressing yourself creatively.

July  5, 2017    Sun trine Neptune
(+/- 3 days) Your place in life gets a little hazy, but not necessarily in a bad way.

July  5, 2017   Sun square Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Egos get inflated and possibly a little bruised.

July  7, 2017    Mercury sextile Venus
(+/- 3 days) An excellent time for creativity and writing a love letter.

July 9, 2017  *Full Moon in Capricorn*
One of the year’s crazier Full Moons, as the Moon is conjunct Pluto. Watch your temper!

July 10, 2017   Sun opposite Pluto
(+/- 3 days) Tensions arise when egos clash. Try to take the High Road.

July 14, 2017    Mercury sextile Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Big ideas and creativity abound in your communications.

July 17, 2017   Venus square Neptune
(+/- 3 days) Big enthusiastic affections and expressions — but how practical are they, really?

July 17, 2017    * Mars square Uranus *
(+/- 10 days) …and here’s the aspect that eats up much of the middle of the month. Tempers and sex drive can become awkward, uncomfortable, and unexpected. Get your blood pressure checked.

July 18, 2017    Venus trine Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Why can’t we all just get along? Maybe under this aspect we can, for at least a little while.

July 19, 2017    Mercury trine Saturn
(+/- 3 days) Thoughts and ideas can take root in practical application.

July 20, 2017   Mars enters Leo
Drama is perhaps one of the first of all human arts. The thing is, though? You can turn off that movie any time you want — but Mars in Leo lasts for a month and a half. Have fun with it, and don’t take yourself too seriously.

July 20, 2017    Sun square Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Try not to take yourself too seriously. Someone’s likely to get grandiose without any real justification… don’t be that guy.

July 22, 2017 Sun enters Leo
Prepare birthday gifts for your Leo buddies… and don;t go cheap. They hate that.

July 23, 2017 New Moon in Leo
A New Moon is a good time to set your intentions for the month ahead. This New Moon is closely conjunct Mars, so choose a target that needs to be blasted a little.

July 24, 2017   Venus opposite Saturn
(+/- 3 days) A bit of a chill blows into your love life, but with it comes some clarity and perspective.

July 24, 2017   Mercury trine Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Express yourself in new and unusual ways.

July 25, 2017 Mercury enters Virgo
Mercury in Virgo bring s a newfound precision to your thinking and communications… take advantage of that now before Mercury turns retrograde on August 12th.

July 26, 2017    Sun conjunct Mars
(+/- 3 days) Lots of energy and enthusiasm.

July 30, 2017    Venus sextile Uranus
(+/- 3 days) New and unusual attractions, and new energy to liven up your love life.

July 31, 2017 Venus enters Cancer
Want to impress a loved one? Go with “soft and sentimental” over “loud and shiny.”
