The rainy season has come to an end, thrusting the silvery days of rain into the full-fledged, golden days of summer. Calmer days seem to continue on until the middle of July, and with the partial solar eclipse on the 13th, we see motivations and energy rise. Solar eclipses are focus points, gifting us with power when we make decisions, wishes, and resolutions. The solar eclipse also signals the start of 6-month-long cycle, and in this time in particular our thoughts are more easily brought to reality. But with the eclipse this month, we see that energies are less about beginning something new and more about making resolutions to change aspects already present in our lives; the eclipse helps reap the rewards of these marks of resolve. It may be something like starting a diet, or deciding to become more health-conscious – if you have these thoughts, why not implement these notions into concrete action? From the 25th to the 28th we see a variety of movements take place –Mercury turns retrograde and we see full lunar eclipse. As a result, one is likely to sense signs and harbingers of changes on a subconscious level. In the same way that the weather and the heavens continue to shift, we see our mental states and our lives move from a quieter mood more active one as we move into the latter half of July. At PhotoAstrology, we present you with forecasts and advice for each of the 12 signs – together with photographs specially selected for each constellation. It is our hope that you have a fruitful, abundant July.
