By Kaye Berjot –
July brings a lot of excitement. It’s a bonafide fireworks show in the sky when not one but four Kites appear throughout the month. The Full Moon on July 8th, and the New Moon on July 23rd represent the culmination of the days preceding these monthly events. During this month, it’s about healing wounds, closing chapters, redefining, and beginning with a New perspective. July is guaranteed to have you looking back at events from early 2008, and early-to-mid-2011, since you’re about to see why those events occurred, in order to lead you to where you’re at now. It’s reminiscent of catching a glimpse of a faraway image (2008), moving closer to it (2011), and finally getting to see the image face to face (2017). It might not look anything like what you’d imagined, yet it’s more than likely the thing that you needed in order to be put back together again. Enjoy the month, and enjoy the new chapter in your life.
** Please see the end of the month for information about the Moon Void of Course (VoC). **

Emotional awareness is in the air today. As you redirect your energy towards a more nurturing area, you could have the tendency to teeter – totter.

The Moon Void of Course (VoC) is the time period from when the Moon makes its last aspect in one sign before moving into the next sign. The Moon is the fastest-moving planet, and transitions from one sign into the next every 1-3 days. What that means is that the Moon is constantly in motion, it’s never retrograde, so it’s inevitable that she will connect with “something,” i.e. another planet or transit, until the moment that she doesn’t. During the moments when she doesn’t connect, we call it the Moon Void of Course. When these events occur, the best thing to do is to meditate, sit still, and listen to your higher guidance. Sitting still does not mean to physically sit still, although it can be beneficial.
