The first few weeks of July are beautiful if you want to be in love. With Venus conjunct Jupiter, feelings of warmth and good times are infectious. So if you want to be bold and ask that special someone out, this is the time.

The Full Moon in Capricorn will allow you to take even your old relationships to a new level. A July 25-September 5 Venus retrograde in Leo may produce a few wrinkles in your plans. But play your cards right and look beyond your own needs. Timing may feel a bit off but be patient. Don’t force your will. Just move consciously and consistently from the place of love.

You might use this energy to break up or to change the standing of your relationships, or to reshape them into something new.

Regardless, there is a complex spider’s web of energy being woven to bring you to the next level. The Antelope card indicates that you will have to move promptly when asked to do so. Try to not get lost in the illusions of the past because from this moment on, the old way is not “the” way.

Great abundance happens when you see everything in your life through the lens of the archetype of Eb (Mayan Oracle), the Cosmic Cornucopia. You will see the flow of divine abundance that is this world when you awaken to notice what is flowering right in front of you.

We have two big transformation cards this month, Transformation and The Tower. You are being asked to step out of your comfort zone and compromise. It is also time to take a look at the form you have constructed your reality around and decide if it is serving you. Are you pushing when you should be enjoying?

There are also two travel-related cards. It’s advisable to get yourself out of the house and your old routine and go on a journey. All journeys have a spiritual quality when you allow yourself to open and be fully present in the moment. When you travel, it is much more difficult to control your reality as you are in situations that may be foreign or not within your normal parameters of life. And that just might be a very good thing.

All and all, this month is designed to be a joyful sharing which produces happiness and abundance. But for that to happen, you will have to bring your confidence, enthusiasm, kindness and feelings of wellbeing together with your passion, communication, creativity, insight and intuition. That might sound like I’m asking a lot, but in the greater flow of good will, change can happen effortlessly and produce great healing.

This month has the potential to be a joyful dance where your soul can find its fullest expression.
