Welcome to our July Monthly Horoscope 2017 For All Zodiac Signs!
Theme of the Month:
Your feelings give you direction in your life.
It’s a matter of trust.
Our life choices are rooted in trust. It’s a matter of how much we trust the people around us. It’s also a matter of how much we trust ourselves.
Our trust is developed or destroyed by how we interpret the events and experiences of our lives.
As newborns, our first inclination is to trust. After all, we don’t know any better. We enter this world immediately dependent on those around us to tell us how to navigate this world we are born into, and as result we are subject to their interpretations of this world through their actions toward us and their choices for us.
Our first and deepest emotional impressions come through our “families”, through birth and/or circumstance. These are the people who give us life and give us the environments which surround us in our earliest and most formative years set the tone for our own personal choices and therefore, for our lives.
The thing is…they influence our choices. And as we grow older and become better acquainted with the world we live in, we learn that people are who they choose to be, things may be what they are, and things happen the way they happen. We may also learn that it’s how each of us choose to feel about those people and events, and how we respond or react to those feelings that give those people and things power and influence in our lives.
Cancer is our emotional foundation. It is where we are most emotionally vulnerable. It is also where we can be at our most emotionally withdrawn or protective. When you find out where Cancer resides in your personal astrology chart, you gain insight as to exactly which events in your life may have had the most impact. Cancer’s placement in your chart highlights the areas of your life that would likely have the most emotional impact for you, either teaching you to open up and trust your feelings or to close up and protect yourself from them.
That can be the trap of emotions – the trap of emotional protection vs. emotional vulnerability. We’ve grown so accustomed to feeling certain ways and believing what we believe that it’s scary to think about changing it now. We know what we know, we are who we are. It’s safe and comfortable. It’s easier to protect what we know than to be vulnerable and take a stand for what we don’t know but want to know as our truth. Even if what has been doesn’t feel true for us, who are we to change it? Who are we to say differently?
We are who we are. You are who YOU are…and you have a say in the matter.
Yes. You have a say in the matter of your life. You have say in whether you stand for your true feelings or not.
So, who are you choosing to be? How do you feel about your life?
And if you don’t feel good about who you are being, what you are doing, or what you have:
- Who are you going to be to change that?
- What are you going to believe to change that?
- What actions are you going to take to change that?
And are you choosing to trust that those beliefs and actions are right for you, and are you choosing to trust your (positive) feelings about them?
Your feelings influence your choices. Your choices give you direction in your life. Therefore, your feelings give you direction in your life.
Recognize how the people and things in your life may have influenced or may be influencing your course, for better and worse. Pay attention to how you feel about their influence and about them. Trust your deepest and truest feelings in making your choices for the direction of your life’s journey.
Look at where Cancer falls in your astrological chart for guidance in how to utilize this energy in your personal life journey. For more information and insights, see the July 2017 Horoscope for your zodiac sign.
July Horoscope Overview
Capricorn Full Moon
This month we have a Full Moon in Capricorn on July 9, 2017 at 07.06 GMT.
Full Moons expose the shadow sides of both signs involved. The shadow side of Cancer is emotional immaturity and self-indulgence. Until healed, our wounded child lives on sabotaging our happiness. The dark side of Cancer also manifests as martyrdom: sacrificing ourselves in hope that eventually our needs will be seen and met.
Either way, emotional denial is at the core. Water must flow and feelings must be fully acknowledged (not necessarily acted out, but felt); otherwise stagnant emotional “ruts”, illnesses, or other negative situations may result. Repressed emotions overflow the banks of our defenses during a Full Moon. Water floods and destroys, but it also cleanses and heals. Harnessed, it generates tremendous power. Water receives, stores, and releases energy. It assumes the shape of is container. What are we pouring ourselves into right now? What do we need to receive? What do we need to release? What do we need to heal in our lives?
We live in a universe of cause and effect. Every action has a reaction. What we sow, we reap. The shadow side of Capricorn avoids taking responsibility and accepting consequences. It worships power and authority, it attempts to dominate and control, win at any cost. The dark side of Capricorn also manifests as projection of our power and authority (it’s not my fault, not my job, not my problem). Blame, shadow and guilt are all part of the Capricorn shadow.
Although both Cancer and Capricorn are yin signs (receptive, feminine), Capricorn has come to be associated with more masculine qualities. For the last 5,000 years in the West, yang (aggressive masculine) qualities have been valued over yin. Competition, domination, and conquest have been valued over inner development, cooperation and sharing. This Full Moon highlights the longstanding inequality between the masculine and feminine and the necessity of returning to the spiritual intentions of the 4th and 10th signs of the zodiac (the Mother/Father axis of your chart).
The positive expression of Cancer is creation, nurturance, and the protection of life. The positive expression of Capricorn is integrity, discipline and dedication. Pluto’s passage through Capricorn keeps this polarity in the cosmic spotlight, revealing the long-hidden costs of inequity, corruption and materialism through 2024.
Use the energy of this Full Moon in Capricorn to thank Spirit for what you have manifested in your life so far, to help you redefine your “mission statement” for the future; and to aid in releasing what no longer serves your higher purpose.
