The Energies of July 2022; Soul Retrieval
We are entering into a harmonizing and healing month, whose main energies are going to help us move into a deep state of communion and soul retrieval, for the soul also needs time to recover, so it can come back again to be part of our earthly experience.
July invites us to move inward and learn how to communicate with ourselves, with our inner worlds, and with the Illumined Aspect of who we are, as the only way to receive authentic guidance. This is a month that reminds us of the importance of building a bridge from our human self, to our soul and monad, merging with them, so we can walk in unison.
During July we are heading into one of the most intense passages of all the year – a Wisdom one that will last from the Solstice, passing through the 7/7 portal that also coincides with the Sirian one, as our Sun will align with it around July 4, until the Lions Gate. This month’s energies are going to affect us powerfully, giving us the opportunity to achieve higher levels of love, wisdom, and power.
A month that as its universal number 13 – 4 reduced – reminds us, is a month for personal transformation, and hence elevation if we first are willing to go into the depths of our being, where we can do all the necessary changes required for us to be more unified. 13 is the number of transformation, which simply means to move from a state of being to another. What determines our new state of being is our conscious choice to move from separation to unity or vice versa, for all is a matter of choice after all.
A transformation that does not have to be painful, unless we are not prepared to leave behind an aspect of our old self and all that is attached to it. This result in experiencing profound suffering, which does not come from the personal shift we are undergoing but from our resistance to letting go.
Letting go is our nature, we are constantly embracing and letting all go, even though we have created the illusion that we are linear beings. It is a time to adapt to change and rather than resisting it, open our hearts truthfully to what shall come, for it is law that when we let go, something else, more illumined, loving, is meant to occupy its place.
Number 4 – 13 reduced – represents the balance, the stabilization that comes when we have synthesized what was previously separated, and therefore in pain, and move into a more peaceful state of being, something that always comes after the proper inner shift required. We pass now to anchor these inner changes into the physical, which is also the same message that number 4 gives us at this time, a message to anchor the wisdom and clarity that descends to us into our human self,
The card that represents number 4, the Emperor, portrays the image of a powerful presence that has an abundant and stable reality, not because of some miraculous destiny, but because he has done the inner and physical work required, establishing the strong pillars for that to occur. Pillars that emerge from a profound, and previous, inner transformation.
Both essences from numbers 13 and 4 complement each other, as both are a result of the other. Essences that represent the energies that are also helping us planetarily speaking, and that will too join the galactic ones that are coming to support our evolutionary journey.
July is indeed a month of deep retrospection, communion, and descension, for it is how we can grow and move forward, by going inwardly and envisioning all we have achieved, and all that is yet to be conquered.
Astrologically, we have a calm and soothing month, although this does not imply inactivity, as this is what many will believe, due to this month’s retrogrades. July is a very special month, with lots of Fire energies, coming from Leo, preparing us for the Lions Gate, bringing all this creative movement and manifestation within, where we truly transform and create, before it can be manifested into our physical world. It is a month for expanding in our inner realms, achieving higher levels of wisdom and love, something that can only be done through deep communication with our God Self.
We begin July by having Mars moving into Taurus on the 5th of the month, at the same time that Mercury enters Cancer. Fiery Mars in Earthly Taurus will be a source of sensuality and passion for us to go after what we wish, enjoying the passions of our earthly world, which does not always mean falling into egoic’s desires but finding beauty in the moment, living our human lives fully, from the heart, feeling grateful for every single minute of our existence.
On the other hand, Mercury in loving and intuitive Cancer is a wonderful opportunity to stop all the mind noise and being to communicate with our feelings, with our Soul, learning how to lovingly communicate, first with ourselves, and then with others, with empathy, and compassion. Mercury will help us express our feelings fluidly, as many times, especially to those who are natural empaths, we tend to withdraw so much that we forget how important it is to communicate what we feel.
On July 7th we have the first retrograde, so to speak, of this month: Vesta, together with Chiron joining on July 19, Juno doing the same in Pisces on July 25, and lastly, Jupiter on July 28. As you know my vision of retrogrades shifted years ago, for this is a human illusion. Nonetheless, this has become real, since the collective belief created that and now for those who are immersed in retrogrades, July will represent a more challenging month in terms of delays and going slower.
For the ones who have chosen to simply commune with the essences of the planets, and asteroids, we no longer allow outer sources to rule our lives, we simply align with the ones we would like to co-create with and can help us transform an inner aspect of ourselves. All these planets and asteroids’ retrogrades are nothing but the reflection of what has been previously and collectively created.
July is a month of inner retrospection whether we have retrogrades or not because there are times within Creation in which we simply need to establish a deeper communication with ourselves, to obtain more guidance on our unique journey, as well as to recover in a soul level, for the soul needs to rest and rejuvenate to continue its intense evolutionary human journey.
Vesta embodies the feminine and devotion to service. With Vesta, we are finally able to connect with our intuitive essence and devote ourselves to being of service in a more spiritual way. This is a time for us to focus on our sexuality, healing all traumas related to our sacred feminine essence, and emerging healed, whole, and empowered, retrieving sexual freedom from the many programs and sexual manipulations that have diminished our feminine essence.
Chiron, especially in Aries, has a more masculine one. Again, we are seeing how this month brings infinite opportunities for us to set a balance between both, as well as the correction of the imbalances that we may have accumulated for years regarding both essences.
With Chiron, we look deeper at the wounds/aspects of ourselves that we try so hard to hide but are still dwelling, in pain, within us. When we consciously desire to align with the frequency of a certain Planet, star, or asteroid, if well directed we can connect with the consciousness of this certain stellar body and integrate its healing frequency to assist us in dissolving what is still fragmented, and that is not allowing us to experience our true soul path and potential.
Chiron assists Vesta, the feminine, and protects us, as the masculine does in Creation, so the feminine can heal, recover and reunite again with the masculine, as equals.
Furthermore, we have too Juno retrograde in Pisces from June 25, which will help us into this inner union. Juno as you know, used to be the Goddess of marriage. Now we know its essence is one of union of opposite essences, as well as outside ourselves with others who deeply resonate on a soul level. Juno is all about synthesis, reunion, and bringing unconditional love to all of who we are.
At this introspective time, Juno’s essence helps us find this union within all aspects of ourselves, with our soul and monad, so we can then extend too this same union in our relationships. It is a time in which everything within Creation is sending us the same message of going within, where we all will need to go at some point if we truly wish to bring healing and wholeness into our being.
A time to heal our shadow self, especially with Pisces, and all delusions that we may have created around partnerships, and that make us continually fall into old toxic traps in our relationships.
Jupiter on the other hand, is all about expansion, whether retrograde or not, for as I always share, Jupiter cannot change its essence according to our human illusions. Jupiter is another planetary force that invites us to expand from within, from where all is first created, so we can create a vision first of what we wish, before anchoring it on the physical. Expansion is not just about birthing, but about acquiring more wisdom to know ourselves completely and unique soul path, and this is something that can only come from within ourselves.
On July 13 we have a Full Moon at 21 degrees Capricorn. This is a Super harmonizing and healing Moon, one that brings us, especially due to the surrounding energies, illumination, for it is the culmination, the peak of this month’s energies, ones that invite us to go within to find the forgotten wisdom, so we can emerge from the depths of our soul, after this introspective period, and bring all we have learned within into our human lives.
Illumination is not only about retrieving wisdom, but about discernment, clarity, and the awareness required for us to know what is in need to be healed and dissolved, within us, as many times we treat our wounds from an outside perspective, and they surface again, for we have not yet go inside, to the root and origin of our imbalances.
On July 17, we have Venus entering Cancer. With Venus in Cancer, we may feel extra sensitive, and deeply emotional. It is precisely those who have a personal mission to bring back the lost feminine essence to the Planet, the ones who will feel more vulnerable, at this time. Vulnerability when embraced is a gift, for it makes you stronger in expressing your feelings, rather than hiding them. It is also a wonderful time to take care of ourselves, at all levels, as we too take care of others and spend some time doing things that nurture our being and that bring us joy too.
Two days later on July 19, Mercury enters Leo. This event is going to empower us to be more confident and use our energy from these fiery energies of this month to express ourselves, our beliefs, and what we truly think, from a passionate state but without hurting or disrespecting anyone. The important thing is to go for what we truly desire, express our hearts, and contribute by sharing our ideas, and personal creations, with the world.
On July 21 we pass from loving and intuitive Cancer to Leo season, as the first one moving into this fiery sign is the Sun. With the Sun in Leo, we can embody this fierce essence to empower ourselves and express our hearts by standing firm in who we are, sharing our unique Divine Spark, at a time when freedom and the right to express ourselves are essential.
If we direct this frequency properly, we could be courageous and bold in following our own path. On the contrary, an excess of this fiery frequency could lead us into arrogance, which is why balance, as always, is the key, to being able to discern for ourselves if we are using these energies for self-empowerment or just for our egoic desires to feel superior.
At the end of the month, we will begin to see how planets will conglomerate around Leo. Energies that begin to introduce the intensity of the Lions Gate and all the surrounding energies that are coming with it. On July 23 we have Ceres in Leo, together with a New Moon in Leo, a few days later on June 28, and the Sun.
The essence of Ceres is that of a mother, at all levels, the love of the Divine Feminine, the love of Earth for us, and the devoted mother. As you can see we are having a lot of feminine energies during July to help us commune with our intuition. However, any self-sacrifice patterns that emerge shall be erased, for devotion no longer means losing ourselves for others, as we are important too within Creation, have a unique mission, and the right to create healthy boundaries.
As Ceres resides in Leo it invites us to nurture ourselves and all we touch with benevolence and from an empowered space. It is the healthy version of the mother archetype, the one that feeds and protects from a sovereign state of being, never from a slavery one, as we have been often taught.
Empowering, but also nurturing frequencies that will increase around July 28, with the New Moon at 5 degrees Leo, in which we will be already immersed in the Lions Gate passage, that will not just last for one day or month, for once the energies are anchored on earth, remain for all who wish to embody and co-create with them.
Leo Moon is an invitation to put all we have previously learned during July into practice, for loving, and nourishing ourselves is equally important. It is now that we are ready to become our own caretakers, protectors, and lovers, for we have discovered that we always had it all within.
Lastly, at the end of July, on the 31, we have Uranus conjunct True Node. This is going to be of great importance, as with the surrounding Leo energies, this planetary encounter invites us to grow spiritually, to balance unconscious actions with loving ones, as it is through lessons and taking responsibility that we most grow.
This alignment is key, at this transitional time for many. We should not allow other events to blur us from connecting with this one, for it is vital for us to trigger the necessary change within us, that will allow us to recognize who we are, our mission, and go after what we came here to fulfill if we have not yet done so. It is an event that did not occur since 2007, that invites us to embrace our soul’s destined path, the one we carefully and lovingly chose, before we incarnated on this earth, to evolve, and to help others do so too.
July is the wisdom month. The one that will introduce us to a deeper communion with our Illumined Self, with our unique purpose, and with the remembrance that we often need, of what is our main role here on earth, as many times with all the distractions that surround us, we may need some help to remember our true motivation and passion.
During July we are offered the opportunity to revisit all we have created, learned achieved, and released, so we can create from a more conscious space now, knowing what we truly wish to manifest next and what is obsolete in our current reality, and no longer serves our soul purpose.
Our destiny, soul mission, and everything we always tried so hard to find outside has been always accompanying us in our human quest. We just had to stop looking in the wrong places and move inward where all reside.
Now we are given once more the opportunity of realizing where all truly is so we can redirect our path, and begin to consciously create all we have been feeling inside for a long time. At the moment we realize that we always had the power, the knowledge, and the will, we have already walked half the way to illumination. The rest is our personal choice to take responsibility and reclaim our sovereignty or to ignore our power and continue to give it away.
I wish you all a blessed July, Beloveds.
May you commune and rejoice in the Presence of your Illumined God Self.
Within Infinite Love,
