July 1-7 2013 Astrology Forecast: Relationship Improvement Week

home improvement couple - relationship improvement week

With Venus aspecting four outer planets, mostly with hard aspects, weak spots in relationships are likely to be exposed. So let’s call it Relationship Improvement Week! Be ready to roll up your sleeves and bring healing to whatever arises.

The other big astrological news this week is also intense: the peaking of a Sun-Uranus-Pluto T-Square. This can bring revolutionary transformation across the board. So prepare to jettison all that doesn’t serve you, and follow the inner guidance provided by your intuitive flashes.

7/1 (Mon)

Watch for relationship reality checks with Venus square Saturn. This is also a good time for an objective look at your financial situation. With Venus in Leo, this aspect can also lend a solid foundation to any “performer in the spotlight” endeavors.

A Sun-Pluto opposition foreshadows tomorrow’s peaking of the Sun-Uranus-Pluto T-Square. There’s no excluding Uranus from this mix, so check out the T-Square’s interpretation.

Be alert for confusion or misunderstandings in your relationships, finances and creative expression. Intentional deceit is even possible. With Venus quincunx Neptune, be prepared to make adjustments as needed. Positive manifestations of this aspect can include deeper states of divine union, enhanced creative inspiration, and more awareness of the divine in the people and things around you.

7/2 (Tue)

The Sun-Uranus-Pluto T-Square that started on 6/25 peaks today. Personally embodying the revolutionary transformation being transmitted by the multi-year Uranus-Pluto square is emphatically supported!

With the Sun in Cancer, powerful paradigm shifts are also supported in the realms of family, nurturing and security. This T-square wraps up on 7/11.

7/3 (Wed)

Anything you value can be given a strong reality check as Ceres squares Saturn. If you find your self-esteem wavering, remember that nothing short of spiritual awakening can provide a lasting remedy. Any ego identification is inherently illusory and unstable. Self-confidence becomes unshakeable once you awaken to the pure beingness of what you really are.

7/4 (Thu)

The effects of today’s Sun-Uranus square are included in Tuesday’s T-Square interpretation.

7/5 (Fri)

It’s a great time to take immediate action on your intuitive flashes as Mars quintiles Uranus. With Mars in mental Gemini, your “brilliance quotient” may also be boosted!

A Sun-Chiron trine facilitates an easy flow for mentoring and healing. The Sun’s placement in Cancer makes it easier to bring these therapeutic modalities into your family situation.

With Venus quincunx Pluto, it’s “adjustment for transformation” time in your relationships, finances and creative expression.

7/6 (Sat)

Vesta transits Leo today through 9/11. This can be a good time to bring more public awareness to the selfless causes you’re devoted to.

7/7 (Sun)

After weathering three hard aspects this week, Venus finally catches a break with a trine to Uranus. The more you relax and let your mind rest, the more easily you will receive intuitive insights in support of your relationships, finances and creativity.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

7/1, 2:48 am – 5:44 pm (Taurus)
7/3, 11:51 am – 7/4, 5:23 am (Gemini)
7/6, 8:31 am – 6:15 pm (Cancer)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after. Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone.
