July 2014 Monthly Astrocast
General: For the first half of the year, we have been in a two steps forward and one step back. With July, that process comes to an end and we all move forward much more easily.
This is an especially busy month with the Planets. Mercury goes direct on the 7th, so be prepared to start your new projects. Jupiter changes signs and enters Leo on the 16th for a 12 month visit. This should give us a boost energetically. Saturn goes direct on the 20th. This will help us to get more organized and a better overall plan for our future. And finally Uranus goes stationary retrograde on the 21st. This should give more power and emphasis to the Marriage Equality Movement.
When we have this much activity in one month, we will all notice us being pressured to be more decisive.
