Main astrological transits of July 2020
The astrological transits of July 2020 come with great force and bring with them the entry of Saturn retrograde in Capricorn, the lunar eclipse in the sign of the goat, and the beginning of the apparent retrogradation of Chiron in Aries.
In this period of the year, the second New Moon in Cancer, the entry of the Sun in Leo, and the end of the retrogradation of Mercury in the sign of the crab will also occur.
Saturn’s retrograde entry into Capricorn (07/01) brings us back to the review of long-term goals; while the lunar eclipse in the sign of the goat (07/05), refers to the management of personal ambitions.
On the other hand, the retrogradation of Chiron in Aries (07/11) aims to face the hidden insecurities; and the second New Moon in Cancer (07/20) places the focus on reparenting.
Finally, the entry of the Sun in Leo (07/22), will promote the expression of talent; and the beginning of Mercury’s direct trajectory in the crab sign, on July 12, 2020, will emphasize the use of emotional intelligence.
Planetary transits: astrological aspects from July 2020
July 1st: Saturn retrograde enters Capricorn
With Saturn retrograde in Capricorn we evaluate our long-term goals, and whether we are clinging to a concept of success, which remains static over time, rather than evolving with experience. Beware of rigidity in personal opinions.
July 5th: Penumbral Eclipse of the Full Moon in Capricorn
The lunar eclipse in Capricorn, in July 2020, focuses on the analysis of past achievements; work the relationship with authority figures; complete pending tasks; overcome fear of success; and learn to manage your own ambitions.
July 6th: Ceres retrograde begins in Pisces
Ceres’ apparent backward movement in the sign of Pisces supposes a marked tendency to deal with other people’s problems, to try to avoid a personal situation. However, this astrological position can be used to reflect on the true desires of the soul.
July 11th: The retrogradation of Chiron begins in Aries
The start of Chiron’s retrograde into Aries, in July 2020, talks about being honest with yourself; renouncing the ego to reencounter with the own essence; and overcome insecurities, and the exaggerated value placed on the opinions of third parties.
July 12th: The direct trajectory of Mercury in Cancer begins
Direct Mercury in Cancer will highlight the importance of cultivating emotional intelligence; recognizing the power of your own sensitivity and the need to shed negative sentimental charges, associated with past events.
July 14th: Sun in Cancer opposed to Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn
Optimism. Opportunity to redesign family or professional plans, in the short and medium term. Pay attention to the practical aspect, if you want to see your dreams materialize.
July 20th: Double New Moon in Cancer
In July 2020, the second annual New Moon will take place in the sign of the crab, or Double New Moon in Cancer, an event that encourages you to connect with intuition and the sacred feminine; inquire into the inner world; practice forgiveness and reparenting (healing emotional wounds, through care for the inner child).
July 22nd: The Sun enters Leo
The entry of the Sun into Leo represents an opportunity to express talent; nurture the bond with the inner child; have fun; and recover quickly, before unexpected obstacles. Avoid autocracy, self-centeredness, and drama.
July 27th: Venus in Gemini square Neptune retrograde in Pisces
This alignment warns about the risks of idealizing a relationship (personal or professional), or being carried away by a crush. Opening up to love does not mean giving up your convictions.
