Read your Astrology Guide to the Week of July 11th: a usable and concise toolkit for the week’s upcoming astrology.
How to make the most of this week … The Capricorn Full Moon on July 13th dares us to dive deep. Full Moons are times of culmination, and this one happens near Pluto, the planet of shadow and transformation. Whatever is ripening in your life: it could feel tender. Release through acts of writing. Call a trusted friend. Listen to the playlist or watch the movie that helps you have a cleansing cry. Our bodies are equipped with these catharsis ducts for a reason.
After the Full Moon’s deep-soul diving, you are well-primed for the weekend’s Mercury cazimi (conjunction with the Sun), which brings with it insights, downloads, and a-ha moments galore. Open yourself to the myriad forms wisdom can take — conversations with elders, heart-to-hearts with friends, books, tarot cards. Even fortune cookies can deliver the affirmation you need to hear sometimes. The universe is all ears. Ask for what you need.

Tarot card of the week … We chose the Crone of Pentacles (aka our spin on the Queen of Pentacles) to honor this week’s Full Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn and the pentacle suit both relate to the earth element. It is here — in the Earth — that ageless wisdom dwells. The Crone’s watch over the material realm is anything but rigid. In fact, a profound awareness of Earth’s cycles can correct our relationship with this planet who nurtures us. Whether it’s cooking with local ingredients, or planting seeds in a solidarity garden, this card draws your focus to tangible acts of nurturance. How else can you embody this wisdom?
Affirmation of the week … Reparenting myself requires that I learn how to center what was obstructed, denied, and left to languish — not to become fixated on it, but to become less ruled by it. I don’t need to stay stuck in a wound to understand it.
