The Sun brings attention to your 10th house this month. The 10th house rules your work and career. This transit could bring hard-won recognition. It could also bring scrutiny from yourself as you look at your work and see if it matches what you really want to do. In the case where you are not really excited about your field of work or workplace, you may be very motivated to make some strides towards changing that.
Employment changes or the process of considering a change or looking into options are all very likely at this time. Be open to the possibility that although stress and uncertainty may be brought by these changes, there could be opportunities to create more of the life you have envisioned for yourself that you were too hesitant to jump into without the intense provocation that could come now.
The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match.
Opportunities from the past through ideas, clients, contacts, or anything else from the past could help in a big way. This is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Taking steps in the backdrop, experimenting with a new path, and researching/gathering information are well-supported at this time. Making forward movement could also be well-indicated. Follow the flow and if things start to get frustrating, it may be your cue to pull in a bit until flow and certainty return.
If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited now about it and could be entering a Renaissance Period with your work. Past labors can show up now in major ways Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past can resurface with new life. Opportunities can come in suddenly or things planned in the past could work out in a wonderful way now.
Prepare to be busy and have a focus on business, getting organized, taking care of practical necessities in the forefront.
The area of the chart that is accentuated now also rules your reputation out in the world. Your name and work might become greater known during this transit 🙂
For those who are retired or for whom ‘work/career’ isn’t relevant, the 10th house focus may cause you to be asking for or finding insights about your higher purpose. Contemplation about a plan that would put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month and education and looking into options are great ways to use the the energies so there is plenty of room to explore, wonder, and dream, as well as looking deep into things relevant to your higher work in the world all month and beyond through the year. Even if you can’t see exactly where you are going, taking obvious steps that present themselves now can feel very fulfilling and lead you on a powerful path of positive change. It is an amazing time to ‘try things on’ and experiment. Something exciting to say YES to could come up that brings you great joy.
Since this house also rules father energy, you could find yourself focusing on your dad (or other father figure), or some situation of note may come up involving him. Maybe is going through something and he needs help or he could be assisting you in some way.
We shift out of the heaviness, high emotion, and confusion of Venus and Mercury retrogrades and the eclipses by August. While some eclipse-related news may still come in, this month is more about finding “the new normal” in the world and in our individual experience. Many themes of home/housing/real estate/family/mother figures and work/employment/business/
This month will be awkward because of an abundance of 150° angle line-up’s with the stars and there are more than twice as many challenging aspects as sweet ones. But even so, Mars continuing direct movement through its native sign Aries will bring momentum and help gel into place options or new directions that came from the eclipses. Use well the momentum especially towards the earlier part of August as Mars will start to lose its thunder and shift into retrograde phase deeper daily through August until its official retrograde starting September 9 and going through November 14 (with the post-transit shadow period going into the beginning of 2021). (I still love best the time from July 22-28 for anything important: launches, big decisions, contracts, moves, and large purchases. It is the most clear will have the stars for things like this until the end of the year/early 2021).
Two fierce aspects involving Mars and Saturn, and Mars and Pluto, will bring Mars retrograde themes in with a bang. Be extra careful with life and limb this month. Understanding the energy of the impending Mars retro will help to direct you towards activities that will roll better with the themes of this time. You can see my Mars retro blog here and my Mars retro video here.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Sagittarius Horoscope is more relevant for you.
