Retrograde activity is strong this month – it’s at its maximum for the year. Things are moving more slowly. There are delays. Many will attribute this to the summer season, but it is the increased retrograde activity that is causing this. It is nice to understand these things.
Success – both financial and career wise – are happening for you this month, but perhaps at a slower pace than you would like. Also, much of the success is happening behind the scenes and so you might not know anything about it at the moment. Be sure that it is happening.
On the 23rd, you enter your yearly career peak. Half of the plants are either in or moving through your 10th house this month. This is plenty of power. So career goals are being achieved (or satisfactory progress is achieved in their achievement). Pay rises and promotions can happen. (They could have happened earlier too, but are more likely this month.) The money people and the authority figures in your life are supporting your career goals.
The spouse, partner or current love also seems successful this period and he or she is equally supportive.
Health and energy become more delicate – and need attention – from the 23rd onwards. Improve the health status in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Also, like last month, pay more attention to the stomach and your general diet. Women should pay more attention to the breasts. Review our discussion of this last month. The most important thing is to get sufficient rest. When energy is low pre-existing conditions can flare up or get worse. Even if there are not any pre-existing conditions, you are more vulnerable to opportunistic infections and the like.
Venus, your love planet, makes one of her rare retrogrades on the 25th. This will not stop the car the love life. Singles will still date. Social invitations will still happen. But things slow down. A current relationship can appear to go backward. Normal social confidence and judgement are not here. There can be hard due to mediocre romantic choices. Affections shift. The love life should review from the 25th onwards. No significant long-term decisions should be made during this time. The important thing is to gain conceptual clarity about your needs in love and the kind of relationship that you’re in. Decision-making should come later when Venus moves forward, in two months’ time.
