Another lunar eclipse on the 5th of July 2020 — the third this year 2020 — yet again shakes up professional organizations, friendships and your high-tech equipment (which is behaving erratically). This eclipse occurs in your 5th house of children, fun and creativity.
So children and children figures in your life are affected here. They should take it easy during this time. If they are involved in a romantic relationship it is getting tested now. If they are too young for that, there is social instability. Once again we see a need for parents and parent figures (perhaps bosses as well) to make important financial changes. Their financial thinking hasn’t been realistic and corrections are in order.
This eclipse affects three other planets — Mercury, Jupiter and Mars. Thus there can be some dramas in your career and personal life — you need to adjust your image and personal appearance. The spouse, partner or current love is making some financial changes. There can be dramas at home and with the family (but these don’t look too serious). Since Mars is also affected (slightly), there can be dreams of death or encounters with death —generally on the psychological level. It would be good to avoid stressful activities during this eclipse period.
Personal finance looks very strong now. Venus is still at the top of your chart. She is moving forward. She is strong on your behalf. It should be a prosperous month. The financial planet in Gemini still favours teachers, writers, lecturers, marketers, PR people and traders. The authority figures in your life are kindly disposed to your financial goals.
Your good career reputation brings extra earnings. Perhaps more important than all of the above is your strong financial focus. Finance is your priority these days, and by the spiritual law we get what we focus on. Retrograde activity decreases slightly this month. Until the 12th of July 2020, half the planets are in retrograde motion; after the 12th the figure is 4o per cent. So though it is a bit easier than last month, these are still high numbers. With nothing much happening in the world you can focus more on your spiritual practice. This becomes important from the 22nd onwards. The world might seem in gridlock, but spirit never is. This is a good month for love. Neptune, your love planet, receives very nice aspects. Only he is retrograde. So, you have opportunities, but go slow.
Retrograde activity increases again this month, and from the 15th of August 2020 onwards 50 per cent of the planets are moving backwards. Continue to focus on your spiritual life until the 22nd of August 2020 and then on your body and image after that date. You might as well. There’s nothing much going on in the world.
This year hasn’t been an especially strong year for personal independence. The Eastern sector of self has never been stronger than the Western, social sector. This has been a year for focusing on others and their needs and you have needed the grace of others to get anything done. But now, the short-term planets are moving to their maximum Eastern position. This is the strongest the East will be this year. And although the social sector is still much stronger, you have a wee bit more independence these days.
The month ahead of August 2020 looks happy. Saturn moved back into your 5th house on July 2 and this house of fun, creativity and children is the strongest in your Horoscope. Add to this the Sun’s move into your own sign on the 22nd (and Mercury moves in on the 20th) and you have a recipe for a fun kind of month. (With all the retrograde motion going on you might as well have some fun.)
Health is super this month. There is only one long-term planet – Neptune – in stressful alignment with you. (The Moon will make occasional stressful aspects, of short duration.) Also, from the 20th of August 2020 onwards, we will have a Grand Trine in the Earth signs – your native element. You are very comfortable with this. Personal creativity is super and you have a ‘happy go lucky’ approach to life. The Sun in your sign makes the personal appearance shine. You have an other-worldly glamour. You have the ability to mould and shape the body by spiritual means. Mercury in your sign also improves the appearance. It gives you the aura, the image, of success. People see you this way.
Venus has spent more than four months in your 10th house of career, but on the 7th she finally moves on into your 11th house. Though your financial intuition remains good and you have the financial cooperation of the beloved, there are more challenges involved in finances this month. You need to work harder than usual for earnings. And, finance doesn’t seem the major focus that it was in previous months. If you put in the extra work you will prosper. The question is, do you have the interest?
