Sun transits Cancer, from 5:28-12:09°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This connects presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators and government officials with royal creativity, compassion and service to the public.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and into Pisces. The full Moon is in Capricorn, July 23 at 8:36 p.m. CDT.
Mars transits Leo, from 1:03-5:26°. Mars is under the seventh aspect of Jupiter. Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient. Mars remains weak in degrees until July 28th. Continue to be patient with the military, police, athletes, surgeons, executive decisions, and property matters for one more week.
Mercury transits out of Gemini and into Cancer July 25 at 12:12 a.m. CDT. Mercury is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until July 27. Be patient with stocks, finances, business, technology, communications and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 6:29 to 5:46°. Jupiter is retrograde until October 18. The adverse effects are primarily for Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) — and only when Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Jupiter remains under the seventh aspect of Venus until July 26th, which is not ideal for the Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries. Jupiter also comes under the seventh aspect of Mars starting July 24 which is not ideal for the Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries.
Venus transits Leo, from 6:03 to 14:27°. Venus is under the seventh aspect of Jupiter until July 26th. Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 16:50 to 16:19°. Saturn is in retrograde motion until October 10th. Retrograde Saturn is adverse primarily only for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) – and only when Saturn is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 15:36 to 14:48° Rahu and Ketu are no longer stationary in the 16° range. This should be helpful — but continue to exercise patience through July. People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 12 and 16 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) in these same degrees, should exercise a great deal of care and patience.

Quote of the Week:
“The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought — that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.”
