Astrology for Healers and Therapists for July 2018

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in July when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

Although last month started well it quickly deteriorated. I wonder how that will develop.

 

The week beginning the 1st July looks to be far healthier than last week. The temporary Grand Trine with the Moon has firmed up with Jupiter instead and the T-Square has disappeared.  Pluto seems unaspected and Venus will be shortly.  Mercury has move into Leo and Mars has gone retrograde.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed and Water has lost two signs, one to Fire and the other to Air.

At first sight this would appear a more stable and balanced chart but with so many planets going retrograde I wonder at the undercurrents that must be prevalent. Perhaps it can best be interpreted as hope springs eternal, otherwise it is a matter of burying one’s head in the sand.

 

Counsellors – Clients may seem intransigent but it is surely not a thought through policy rather than a reactive one.  Don’t take their non-cooperation too personally.

 

Healers – despite the above this should be a far more productive situation as the elements are so well balanced. It could be a bit slow to begin with but once on the move the energetic inertia should be obvious and useful.

 

  The week of the 8th July sees a temporary Grand Cross to complement the Grand Trine.  Venus and Pluto and both now aspected with Pluto taking over the challenge to the Sun from Saturn and Venus now forming a line of ease with Uranus.  It is a very complicated chart at the beginning of the week.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged but Air has lost a sign to Earth.

It is a case of ‘Don’t rock the boat’!! Appearances will be so important with that hopeful attitude held very much in mind but probably unvoiced.

 

Counsellors – I don’t think you will get very far this week. It is almost as if there is a conspiracy of non-cooperation arranged between the Clients.

 

Healers – the dearth of Air is going to be a problem at every stage of therapy, especially as Earth element takes the dominant position. It is enough to try a saint.

 

The week beginning the 15th July reveals a unexpected change.  The Grand Trine is still there but now formed by Uranus, Saturn and Venus in Earth as Venus has moved into Virgo.  The Grand Cross has disappeared including the challenge between Mars and Mercury.  Jupiter is no longer retrograde.

 

The Elemental scene is unchanged although Fixed has lost a sign to Mutable.

Although there is a considerable measure of self doubt still in the air there is also a sense of tremendous relief suddenly descending from on high. It looks as if the hope was justified.

 

Counsellors – You might think you are superfluous to requirements this week as things have taken such a significant step to resolution without your help! Be thankful and coast for a bit!

 

Healers – Stomach and Spleen may need attention as too much of a good thing can upset the whole system.

  The week beginning 22nd July shows a T-Square now formed between the Sun and Mars on Uranus and a line of challenge between Neptune and Venus. The Grand Trine has faded away and Pluto, instead of challenging the Sun, now forms a line of ease with Venus.

 

The Elemental scene is still unchanged but Mutable has gained a sign from Fixed.

After the possible euphoria of last week normal hopes and fears come rushing back. It is not a case of dreams being shattered as normal anxiety and doubts resume.

 

Counsellors – Normal service is resumed again! Anger issues could well be to the fore with repressed anger needing to be voiced.

 

Healers – this is the third week of little change to the Elemental situation. Any situation that continues this long will have culminative affect so do not neglect that dearth of Air.

The week beginning 29th July sees the T-Square persisting even though the Sun has moved into Leo. Jupiter has lost its line of ease with Venus and now challenges the Sun.  Mercury has turned retrograde.

 

Both Cardinal and Mutable have lost a sign each to Fixed whilst Water has lost a sign to Air.

This looks as if a sense of panic suddenly descends upon everyone! Many misgivings will resurface as heels are dug in deep.  A loss of control will dominate relationships and decision making.  Ouch!

 

Counsellors – It must be that fears are not so much dismissed as hope and vision highlighted to give any kind of optimism to Clients. Small is beautiful this week.

 

Healers – Stomach and Spleen will shout for attention this week. Yet despite this imbalance there should be plenty of energy to work with.

 

Doesn’t all this moving from one extreme to another leave you in a breathless state?
