Two planetary heavyweights, Saturn and Uranus (pictured), are 'changing direction' from our point of view here on Earth. If you've been labouring under difficult circumstances, especially to do with work, or you've felt unable to move forwards, you should find that matters which have been ‘stuck’ for several months will begin to progress soon.
If, on the other hand, change has been too fast; too unexpected or simply too much, you'll find, in coming weeks, that you'll get a reprieve; enough to catch your breath and plan forwards over the next few months.
For many of us, life has been a mixture of both these influences; of feeling stuck and yet moving forwards quickly, which is why now, we'll get the chance to choose - and to do so with the feeling that we have the benefit of hindsight.
And, with gas giant Jupiter newly arrived in outgoing Leo, July has always marked a change of energy, again, a time when renewed vitality will give you the chance to mend broken matters from the past; and to move forwards considerably; if only because you get the chance to consolidate the lessons you've learned over the past six months.
Astro data: Saturn turned 'direct; on July 21 (AEST); Uranus turns 'retrograde' on July 22. Jupiter entered Leo on July 16 and will remain there for the rest of 2014.
