Welcome to the Great Dissolve. July is a month where we go in deep on emotional integration. Kicking things off with a parade of planets (happening from solstice through the end of June), we move into July with a Cancer New Moon. Have you been feeling deep and stagnant energy coming to the forefront to be moved out of your field? That, my friends, is a sign that you are experiencing the release of the outdated archetypes of energy and/or are also benefitting from this natural phase of healing that our solar system has brought us to. This is exciting, albeit intense.
Mars and the Aries archetype take center stage, all month. A strong dissolving of the old archetype of Aries energy and its imprint on the Marsian archetype ‘chord’ that was struck is ongoing. You may feel it. We have been doing this all year along with the Uranus lunar occultations in Aries. It will continue happening. The pocket between June 21 and July 22 is especially powerful for healing these wounds within. The double lunar occultation of Mars and Uranus (one happening each month) is a powerful bookend. This is something that is akin to an energetic gift to humanity. Admittedly, as I type this my brain feels like it is falling out. This is what a dissolve is. Empty the mind and join in on the ride.
Excitingly, we are bringing in a new phase of planetary experiences and relations. This is a story that takes center stage, once again this month. Be sure to tune into the podcast to hear all about it ;). These little written parts are abstract summaries. The real juice comes in the report themselves:

The strength of emotion and the potential of healing and lunar connection this month is strong. The moon is the parade leader, gently bringing us through each planet.
Healing, when it is this deep, can be uncomfortable. Give yourself lots of time outdoors and in peace to experience and move through the energy. Come back for more on that in future podcasts!
