Eclipse Chaos & Mercury Retro Mayhem in July!

Astrology News Blog - How To Handle Mercury Retrograde in July, 2019.

July is an extremely volatile month. Mercury is in shadow from July 1-6 and in retrograde mode from July 7-August 1 (in the signs of Leo and then Cancer). So expect more arguments, accidents, travel disruptions and computer problems. This Mercury Retrograde will be especially difficult because it conjuncts Mars (on July 8-9) and coincides with two Eclipse periods. There is the Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 2-3, and then the Partial Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July 16-17.

So the stage is set for a turbulent month. The people who will be particularly affected are those with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant in Cancer (like WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange) or Leo (like many members of the British Royal Family) or Capricorn (like North Korean leader Kim Jong-un). During July we are also likely to see at least one of the following: a big celebrity sex scandal; economic volatility; a dramatic political crisis, an extreme weather event or a major terrorist attack.

So which areas of your life will be specifically impacted by this intense Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde period?

ARIES – romance, family and real estate.

TAURUS – home, communication and local community.

GEMINI – money, self-esteem and social media.

CANCER – physical appearance, finances and possessions.

LEO – personal projects, secrets and self-doubt.

VIRGO – peer group and privacy.

LIBRA – career, hopes and dreams.

SCORPIO – reputation and international connections.

SAGITTARIUS – sex, taxes and travel.

CAPRICORN – love and joint finances.

AQUARIUS – relationships and work.

PISCES – health, friends and pets.

Regardless of what your zodiac sign is, avoid making sudden life-changing decisions over the next few weeks (like eloping, signing an important contract, buying property, launching a business or quitting your job).  Basically we all need to slow down and be extra cautious, patient and diplomatic during July. Forewarned is forearmed!

Astrology News Blog – The Horoscope of baby Archie

Astrology News Blog. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son - the horoscope of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child into the world on Monday May 6 at 5.26 am. So what will Archie Harrison Mounbatten-Windsor be like? He has his Sun in Taurus (like Queen Elizabeth) and his rising sign is also Taurus (like Prince Harry). So he’ll have a strong work ethic and be very down-to-earth and approachable.

With Mercury and Venus in Aries he’ll be quick-witted, physically attractive, active and sporty. With Moon and Mars in Gemini he’ll be smart, versatile, media savvy and a fabulous communicator.

Archie has Jupiter in Sagittarius (The Archer) at the top of his birth chart. So he will have a talent for writing and languages and be an enthusiastic and constant traveller. A true global citizen.

However Archie has a very challenging square between Venus (his ruling planet) and Pluto/Saturn/South Node in Capricorn. So he’ll have intense, demanding and difficult relationships with women … including his mother. This repeats a negative karmic pattern between Meghan and her father, Thomas Markle.
