July 2022 Astrological Influences & Rituals

Hello, my dear Witches and Occultists, 

Firstly, I apologize for skipping June and most of July's astrological forecast. I needed to take time away from my writings for very personal matters. And now we resume...

July 22, 2022: Sun enters Leo, and jovial energies fill the air. People tend to be more generous during this transit (lasting through August 20), and people also tend to overspend on luxury items. 

If you are selling your home, you are in luck! 

  • First, before an open house, spruce up your home with fresh flowers and citrine crystals elegantly disguised as mundane home decor. Then, sprinkle a pinch of Song of the Siren and Opulence Ritual Blend in the entry of your home, ensuring any potential buyers step on it upon entering. The buyers will fall in love with the home and won't stop thinking about it. An offer will come shortly after. 

If you are buying a home, make sure your investment isn't based solely on the home's beauty. 

  • Luxury and beauty hold a very strong power during this time, often blinding logic and common sense. Before putting in an offer on a home, do the Wise Woman Ritual to ensure you are making a good investment. If logic prevails and the home is indeed a wise investment, you will have the upper hand in all negotiations. 

July 28, 2022 (10:54 AM PST / 1:54 PM EST): Dark Moon in Leo is often dramatic and is felt by most. Generally speaking...

  • Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or those with fire element-dominant natal charts (learn your dominant element) will be most impacted by this Dark Moon. You may come to a painful realization that you are not living up to your full potential. Missed opportunities or regrets regarding paths not taken will suddenly come to the forefront of the mind. 
  • Water Signs (Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio) will desperately crave affection and beauty. Long-distance relationships may become a bit painful, as the longing for your other half becomes almost intolerable. Those in unfulfilling relationships will be inspired to take a break and allow themselves to find a more meaningful love. 
  • Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) may be taken aback by ultimatums or a sudden change of heart. Avoid overspending or overeating to try to compensate for a lack of love.
  • Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) may feel lost and uninspired by the current course of their lives.

The Dark Moon in Leo is exceptionally powerful for both cursing and curse-breaking. 

Recommended Dark Moon in Leo Rituals:

Do not begin anything new and do not perform any rituals to draw anything new into your life. Wait until the Witch’s New Moon - see below.

July 28, 2022: Jupiter Retrograde is associated with affiliations, opportunities, expansion, and in many cases, prosperity. Every 9 months, Jupiter pulls us slightly off-track and forces us to realign - sometimes on a new path altogether. Although this may seem like a destructive transit, it actually prevents you from wasting your time on ill-fated projects or paths.

Jupiter goes direct on November 23rd, 2022 and will gradually put you back on track. By February 14, 2023, what fell apart will realign and rearrange. 

Pay close attention to themes or repetitive occurences. Perhaps you continually stumble across the same book no matter where you go. Maybe you continually overhear a conversation about one specific place. Take note. The meaning behind these events will unveil itself before mid-February. 

July 30/31st, 2022: The Witch's New Moon in Leo quickly moves into Virgo and inspires rapid action. Eagerness to accomplish difficult tasks will be activated today. Expect a productive day!

Note: The Witch's New Moon rises before noon, is most visible at sunset, and sets well before midnight. The moment you see the first crescent of the Moon, know that the Witch's New Moon is upon you. Depending on where you are in the world, you may not see the Witch’s New Moon until July 31st. The Witch’s New Moon supplies the energy necessary to expand on current desired circumstances and attract more of the same. Energetically powerful day to begin love spells and money magick.
