Monthly Astrology Transits for July 2020
July 4, 2020
- Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn spells change for the collective. We will especially see changes in the work field, and in large organizations that run society.
The Capricorn laser-like focus helps us prioritize goals so that we can really set ourselves up for long-term success. We say goodbye to old and stale ideas as new opportunities arise. This energy can feel intense, so it’s best not to let the party get too big today. Try making plans for important events on another day.
July 8, 2020
- Mercury in Cancer (Square) Mars in Aries
This tension between Mercury (which is still retrograde) and Mars might make simple communication turn into a disaster. Before you react in a negative way to something someone has said, try and double-check what they actually meant.
Try not to allow yourself to feel like you’re being attacked. Instead, take a few deep breaths knowing people are testy, and communication is off.

July 11, 2020
- Chiron stations retrograde in Aries
Chiron moves retrograde in Aries inviting us to heal our emotional wounds until it stations direct on December 15, 2020.
Today, we remember experiences that led to certain perspectives that paint our world with negativity. Acknowledging that our worldviews, on a subconscious level, affect our lives, helps us find new patterns of thinking that elevate our energy.
The ways we react and speak create energy, and so the Aries influence reveals where we rush and leak energy.
July 12, 2020
- Mercury stations direct in Cancer
- Sun in Cancer (Trine) Neptune in Pisces
Mercury moves direct in Cancer, and communication starts to feel more normal. People understand what we say, and stop taking it the wrong way. We find things start to improve with electronic communications, travel plans (if it’s safe to do so!), and our thinking is even a bit more clear.
The trine between the Sun and dreamy Neptune adds a sense of harmony and flow to the day. We may feel a sense of peace or jolliness that allows us to see the beauty and love present in the world. In other words, we are awakened to calm and soothing energy.

July 14, 2020
- Sun in Cancer (Opposition) Jupiter in Capricorn
This transit occurs only once each year. When the Sun opposes Jupiter, we feel conflict in regards to what is holding us back, and in this case, it has to do with business and creating stability in our lives (because Jupiter is in Capricorn).
This sensitive Sun energy will look deep at why some might feel oppressed. Themes we may see might include exposing bad labor practices, or having realizations about true values in life.
July 15, 2020
- Sun in Cancer (Opposition) Jupiter in Capricorn
July 20, 2020
- New Moon in Cancer
This New Moon in the Water sign of Cancer will help us reset our goals in terms of personal well being, as well as feeling more connected to why we do what we do.
Cancer wants to help, heal, and nurture so you can let the Universe supply you with ideas to put into motion. As the veil between us and the spirit world is thin today, intuition is heightened with the intuitive Cancer Moon.
July 22, 2020
- Sun enters Leo
We kick off Leo season today as the Sun moves into the confident Fire sign. Bashfulness is thrown out the window as a burst of motivation rushes in to dream big, and let our hearts lead.
The emotional Cancer season is now giving way to the fun and charming Leo. Notice how people are more outgoing and looking to socialize or start big projects.
July 30, 2020
- Mercury in Cancer (Opposition) Jupiter In Capricorn
- Mercury in Cancer (Trine) Neptune Pisces
Mercury opposing Jupiter brings optimism without direction, so try not to be too impulsive. We may feel like taking a risk but don’t know what on, so just jot down your ideas and sleep on them.
Mercury trine Neptune is what is making us feel a bit like we just can’t quite see what to do next. Imagine you are just setting up your tee for golf, but not swinging until the fog clears, and you can see which direction to hit the ball.
