Astrology for Healers and Therapists – July 2020

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 4 Sundays in this month once again.

The tension gradually built up over last month to burst a bubble towards the end.  But does it go anywhere from there?

The week beginning the 5th July

Saturn has moved into Capricorn to form a strong bundle especially for the weekend as the Moon joins them there.  Venus has lost its line of ease with the bundle but has formed one with Mars which has also lost its one with the bundle.  Neptune has formed a line of ease with the Sun.

Cardinal 7 – Fixed 1 – Mutable 2

Fire 1 – Earth 5 – Air 1 – Water 3

Cardinal has gained a sign from Fixed whilst Earth has gained two signs from Air.

It looks as if lines will be drawn in relationships and actions speak louder than words.  Lots of defence and not much negotiation.

Counsellors – People are likely to be forthright and gallop ahead.  However with the Client’s lack of forethought you could find it quite difficult to facilitate much of a rational awareness or approach.  Do your best and not let your Clients get too far into self deception.

Healers – there is a real danger of getting bogged down in fantasy or past lives ideas.  There is more than enough work to be done in this life in real terms and time.

The week beginning 12th July

Mercury and the Sun are nearly the furthest apart that is possible and with the lines of ease that these two made with Uranus disappearing, Uranus is apparently unaspected.  Mercury appears to be stationary at the weekend.

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Fire has gained a sign from Earth.  

Cardinal 7 – Fixed 1 – Mutable 2

Fire 2 – Earth 4 – Air 1 – Water 3

There is little evidence of restraint still but at least people are not quite so dogmatic or pig headed this week.

Counsellors – there is more chance of a reasoned approach this week that still retains the need for Client’s to take an initiative.  This week could be quite productive.

Healers – there is still the danger of getting stuck again this week, stuck in ideas rather than actual use of healing energy.  Take care.

The week beginning 19th July

Mercury is moving forwards in the heavens again.  Neptune  challenges Venus and Uranus is aspected positively to Mercury (and the fast moving Moon).

The Modal scene is still unchanged but Fire has lost a sign to Water.

Cardinal 7 – Fixed 1 – Mutable 2

Fire 1 – Earth 4 – Air 1 – Water 4

There is a growing frustration and a lessening of patience but the prevailing thinking is still to look for inward strength and inspiration to cope.

Counsellors – Despite the outward words of Clients to get on and ‘do something’ you will find Clients are well and truly stuck in their ‘bubbles’ of thinking.

Healers – There may well be little to show of healing progress but your efforts are making a difference deeper down.  Don’t give up.

The week beginning 26thJuly 

The Sun has moved into Leo and is challenged by Uranus.  Mercury challenges the bundle in Capricorn which in turn challenges Mars.    Neptune forms a line of ease with Mercury.  The result is a Grand Cross at the weekend.

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed and both Fire and Air have gained a sign each from Water.    

Cardinal 6 – Fixed 2 – Mutable 2

Fire 2 – Earth 4 – Air 2 – Water 2

Emotions will be a breaking point this weekend.  If tensions can be held then inner strength will bubble up to cope but if emotions get the better of people then damage will be sudden and profound.

Counsellors – Tread very carefully this week, as I am sure you always do.

Healers – Be as gentle as you can with bruised souls.  Inner strength is not infinite.

What can we do to get through this time?
