Energy Update July 2023 – Welcome to this space of the magazine. The one you connect with each month. The moon, the sun. Your spiritual being.
This is an invitation for you to set intentions and reflect throughout the month of July at key moments that punctuate the solar and lunar cycles – a form of soul nourishment.
Have courage, dear heart… This is a month for the Sun and the Moon. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee), your journal and an open mind.
Let us get started.
SUN in Cancer and Leo June 22 – July 21:
Cancer: the sign of sensitivity. The crab. Strong on the outside, soft on the inside. Emotional. Warm. Caring. A beautiful intuitive sign. Requires nurturing.
Cancer is ruled by the moon. The planet of safety, of emotions, and intuition.
The shadow of cancer is overprotection. In-direct communication. The inconsistency can appear.
- How can you nurture yourself more in this energy?
- What makes you feel safe?
July 22 – August 22:
Leo: the sign of the lion, the lioness. People who have this sun sign will light up a room. Natural performer. Confidence. Charismatic. Proud and loud. Sharer of light. Playfulness.
Leo is ruled by the sun. The sense of authority. A Leo likes to shine brightly like the sun.
The shadow of Leo is being self-centered, arrogant, and vain.
- How are you trying to “fit in” and what can you do to stand out?
- What would it mean to be true to yourself and inspire others to do the same?
MOON with Full Moon in Capricorn + New Moon in Cancer
Create a ritual to connect with the moon. Let me share more about the moon phases and how to honor these.
Full Moon: Illuminate. Full Moon at 11° in Capricorn (Sunday 03.07 at 6.39 AM CDT, 12.39 PM BST and 9.39 PM AEST).
Expression of the need to embody passion. Under the Full Moon, all is illuminated. The seeds and intentions planted in the June New Moon are revealed.
Gemini Intention + Capricorn Moon = Air + Earth element connection. Capricorn is a yin sign, it is cardinal and aligns with the element of earth.
Capricorn is the sea goat and all about the aspect of blending our spiritual self (we are spiritual creators) and having an earthly experience.
The upper body of a Capricorn is the goat and the lower body is the fish, which symbolizes the integration of our intuition and being grounded. It is all about the ability to thrive inhospitable environments. Capricorn also has the ability to make sense of complex moving parts.
The Full Moon invites you to embrace the need to improve it all and just let it be. Take a journal and a pen.
- What will I let go of this full moon?
- What support will I need to stay on track with my intention?
Last Quarter Moon: Re-evaluate. Last Quarter Moon at 17° in Aries (Sunday 9.07 at 8.48 PM CDT, Monday 10.07 at 2.48 AM BST and 11.48 AM AEST).
The time to surrender.
Gemini Intention + Aries Moon = Air + Fire element connection.
Aries is a yang, cardinal, and Fire sign. It is about this need to be free. Having the courage to follow your path. To be revolutionary. To embrace your true self. It is the principle of activity, this force, and this drive. The Warrior or Warrioress. To embrace change and take risks.
We are in flow when we step into the change, this leader energy, this warrior energy. Aries is the Ram which is associated with force. Take a journal and a pen.
- How can I take aligned action?
- What needs to be surrendered in order to step into my leader’s energy?
New Moon: Set Intention. New Moon at 24° in Cancer (Monday 17.07 at 1.32 PM CDT, 7.32 PM BST, and Tuesday 18.07 at 4.32 AM AEST).
In the darkness. Connect with the seeds to be planted. Cancer Sun + Cancer Moon = Water + Water element connection.
Cancer is all about yin, it is cardinal and is a water sign. Yin is all about divine feminine and water is about embracing our emotions. The sign of cancer represents nourishment, and feeling safe, it is a nurturer.
Cancer is all about the softness and feminine parts of the body, so look after those parts. This is a time for nourishment. What self-care rituals can you embrace at this time? Take a journal and a pen.
- What do I wish to co-create with the universe?
- Who and/or what are you “birthing”, “mothering” or nurturing for this new moon cycle?
First Quarter Moon: Commitment. FQ Moon at 2° in Scorpio (Tuesday 25.07 at 5.07 PM CDT, 11.07 PM BST, and Wednesday 26.07 at 8.07 AM AEST).
This is the time to take action. The time to grow. In the first Quarter Moon, you take inspired action toward the plans you have created.
Cancer Intention + Scorpio Moon = Water + Water element connection.
Scorpio is a yin sign, it is fixed and aligns with the element of water. Scorpio is about the principle of death and rebirth. The intention of facing our fears and knowing and stepping into our own power.
The scorpion has the ability to really cause death. Death to us means clarifying our values and being deeply aligned with our vision. It is time to work on bringing your vision to life.
Scorpio is inviting us to seek out this vision and for the meaningful impact, we want to have in the world and surrender to the steps forward. Take a journal and a pen.
- What action do I need to take to bring clarity to my life?
- How can I push closer to my vision? What’s next?
Let’s drop into meditation in order to access more clarity. Choose your favorite type or if you need, head to Insight Timer and search ‘Laetitia Andrac’ for some guided meditations!
Let’s feel the ocean of possibility… and allow life to pleasantly surprise us as Source co-creates our dreams with us.
