Vedic Astrology Forecast July 2
Today there is both a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse in Gemini. Solar eclipses are always transformative events and this one is no different. Now is the time to transform your ideas and preconceived notions, which are qualities of Gemini. Look for better information and data in all areas of your life.
While this information helps you to make sense of the things you believe, it may also shatter your belief systems. Be ready to change and adapt to a new way of thinking and living.
The Nakshatra of this New Moon/Eclipse is Ardra, ruled by Lord Shiva. This is very transformative, so expect something in your life to die or be completely destroyed. This destruction is necessary for the new you to be born, but often the transformation is painful.
Mercury is retrograde in Cancer until August 1. This is a time when you will be reflecting on your ideas, details, and communication habits. You may notice an excessive emotional content to your interactions. Pay attention to how your message becomes distorted when you are under emotional stress. Bring attention to your communication systems and technology systems today.
Today’s Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius takes place on Guru Purnima, the day to celebrate your guru. Needless to say, this is an important date spiritually, perhaps one of the most important of the year. It is also a meaningful day to study. If possible, actually spend time with your important teachers. On Guru Purnima, your mind most easily grasps the true nature of the teachings themselves.
The Nakshatra of this Full Moon is Uttara Ashada which literally means “later victory.” This is the time when your wisdom teachings can emerge victorious over your darker nature – but you need to put them into practice.
Mars will be combust and be debilitated until October 12. When a planet is combust, it is very close to the Sun, which in the case of Mars, may increase anger and frustration. Be careful of getting into battles, and if you do, make sure to choose wisely. You may be easily tempted to fight; but notice how much energy and power you lose if you are fighting the wrong battle.
