Cleansing Negative Energy With Sea Salt: 7 Simple Methods

Ways of Cleansing Negative Energy With Sea Salt Image

Sea salt has healing properties and can purify the energy field. Even in ancient treatises, you can find references to this amazing substance. Regular sea salt can help you to get rid of evil spirits and haunting ghosts. It can protect you from evil spells and curses. Our ancients even carried it with them in a special bag or inside an amulet around their neck. Sea salt is a real energy protector! It is believed that any evil force or evil spirit is afraid of it. In this article, we will share with you how cleansing negative energy with sea salt works. We will share with you different ways of performing such a cleansing.

Why Do We Need to Cleanse Our Energy?

Energy cleansing is necessary in order to get rid of the negative energy that we accumulate when communicating with other people, experiencing fears, negative emotions, etc. If someone wished us harm, sent in our direction aggression, directed jealous thoughts about our success or relationships – it all leaves an imprint on our energy body.

If we don’t practice energy cleansing the negativity begins to accumulate, and settle within our energy body, and block the normal flow of energy within us. Ultimately, all this leads to the deterioration of health and our mood.  Over time, this can turn into energy blocks, clumps of negative energy, which, in turn, will move to the physical body and appear in the form of diseases. You see, the physical illness is always the last alarm bell, which means that all other signals on the energy level we’ve already missed.

Cleansing Power of the Sea Salt

7 Methods of Cleansing Negative Energy With Sea Salt Image

If your aura is very heavily polluted and these negative vibrations were generated by someone from outside (for example, you were deliberately sent a spell or evil eye), then it is salt that will quickly get rid of this energy pollution, destroy any evil slander or negative vibrations of outsiders. In this case, a noticeable effect occurs immediately after the first cleansing procedure.

Also, sea salt is perfectly able to absorb negative energy. It tightly holds this energetical “dirt” inside its crystals and quickly destroys it. Thus, sea salt is a natural powerful deactivator of energy debris in the biofield or any “dirt” that surrounds your aura.

It’s important to know that after using sea salt for cleansing negative energy you should bury it in the ground or flush it into a sewer hole. But you should never use such salt for food!

7 Ways of Cleansing Negative Energy with Sea Salt

Here we want to share with you 7 different ways of cleansing negative energy with sea salt. Just pick the one you like the most and start doing your magic!

#1 Sea Salt Shower

salt shower image

Rub your body with sea salt, trying to cover all surfaces except the hair. However do not rub the salt too hard, do it gently, so as not to feel discomfort.

After that, stand under the shower and wash off the salt with water. When you stand under the shower, mentally turn to the water with a request to wash away all the negativity.

Water with salt will cleanse your body and your aura.

It is very good to take a shower with salt after a hard day at work or when you feel internal tension, after a quarrel and communication with a toxic person.

#2 Sea Salt Bath

Another great way of cleansing negative energy with sea salt is a salt bath. Salt dissolved in water can wash away the negative energy that has accumulated not only for a day but also for many years.

To do this, you need to dissolve a few tablespoons of sea salt in the water and lie in it for 15-20 minutes. It is better to carry out such a cleansing procedure for 9 days in a row every 3 months.

#3 Sea Salt by the Bed

If you work with a large number of people or feel information overload, if you have a heavy and restless sleep, then you should consider placing sea salt at the head of your bed in some dish made of natural material (a clay pot or a wooden bowl would serve this purpose perfectly).

After some time, you will see that the salt will darken. This is the sign that it’s absorbed negative energy and needs to be replaced with a fresh one.

#4 Bags of Sea Salt

To protect and cleanse the house from negative energy, you can take bags made of natural plain white fabric, fill them with sea salt and hang them in the corners of the house.

This is especially important to do for those of you who often have visitors and guests at the house. Also, if you often have scandals and quarrels at the house, these bags will help you to get rid of accumulated negativity in your household.

After a while, when the salt will absorb the maximum negative energy, the bags will darken, and they will need to be replaced with new ones.

#5 Sea Salt Calcination

If things are not going very well in your family, there is heavy energy at home, there is no harmony and mutual understanding, then you can use the following ancient method of cleansing negative energy.

Heat sea salt in a large skillet until it cod. The high temperature causes the salt crystals to break down which forces the negative energy that was in the house to get destroyed. All the negativity accumulated in your house, like a magnet, gets attracted to the salt, which absorbs all this negative energy and immediately destroys it. As a result of this ritual, the house is cleared.

If necessary, this procedure can be repeated several times, and for prevention – once every six months.

#6 Sweeping Out Negativity With Sea Salt

Before cleaning the house (so that space is cleared not only physically, but also energetically) you can put a pinch of sea salt in each corner of the house. Let it lie there for a couple of hours (best – overnight) and then sweep this salt out of the house along with the dirt.

#7 Cleansing Jewelry With Salt

Did you know that gold and silver are known to be able to absorb negative energy? Therefore, it’s very important to regularly cleanse your jewelry to make sure there is no negative energy left. You can use sea salt to perform such a cleansing.

To do this, you need to put your jewelry pieces in salt for a few days. This applies both to jewelry that you wear constantly, and those pieces that you were given or that you did not wear for a long time. The salt will take the negative energy from them.

The Bottom Line

Cleansing Negative Energy With Sea Salt Image

You should remember that keeping your aura clean is even more important than the cleanness of your physical body. Try to always be conscious of what kind of energy and people you surround yourself with. Don’t forget to cleanse your aura and the energy of your house every time you’re not feeling well. If you’re aware of the condition of your energy you can always prevent a negative effect caused by problems with your aura and the energy of your surrounding space.

Lagom: Swedish Philosophy For Living a Meaningful Life

Published

on

Lagom image

Did you know that Sweden is one of the happiest countries in the world? What do they do so differently that it helps them stay happy and satisfied with their lives? The answer is found in one word – lagom.

In this article, I will share with you what lagom is and how we can all implement it into our lives and make it more balanced and meaningful.

What Is Lagom?

Lagom (pronounced “lar-gohm”) is the Swedish philosophy that focuses on finding balance in your everyday life through moderation.

This word can be translated as “Not too little. Not too much. Just right.” In other words, if you focus on having enough but not too much, you create a balanced mindset.

The famous Swedish proverb says “There is virtue in moderation”. And this is the main difference between our american mindset which makes us always seek the next best thing.

Lagom philosophy is the opposite of materialism and consumerism. It focuses on creating a balanced, sustainable lifestyle that welcomes the pleasures of existence rather than those of consumption. This philosophy is very practical and applied to everyday lives – food, clothes, lifestyle, work, etc.

Lagom is all about having only what you need. It is the new minimalism for anyone who wants to live with fewer material possessions but aim to enjoy a more meaningful and happier life.

Don’t they get bored living like this?

Lagom is not a rejection of pleasure, but the ability to indulge in it in a moderate and balanced way. Of course, the Swedes also allow themselves to deviate from the plan. If you’ve ever been to Sweden you know what an incredibly strong coffee they brew! Not to mention punch-rolls, chocolate balls, cinnamon buns that Swedes adore. However, after a little indulgence, they do not punish themselves with strict diets but get back to a moderate and balanced lifestyle.

How to practice lagom?

Now let’s talk about how we can implement lagom into our daily life. As I already mentioned, it can be applied to all areas of life. In this article, I will share with you some ideas on how to do it.

Step 1: Inspect your home

decluttering the house image

If we try to highlight the area where the Swedes are #1, it is home organizing. Impeccable Sweden style is not overloaded and attracts the eye.

But how did the Swedes manage to create this balance?

They have an innate desire for minimalism and absolutely no desire for hoarding. That’s why there are no boxes in Swedish homes filled with old things like broken phones, a dozen old sweaters, and jeans that we vow to wear one day, old magazines, etc.

Here’s a little clutter test for you. Check the correct statements box:

  • You have a box or drawer with the items that you never use.
  • It takes you more than five minutes to find the right thing.
  • You feel stressed if your friends come to visit you without an invitation because you have to do a big cleaning first.
  • You have things that you don’t use or things that you don’t like anymore.

If you have marked more than two points — it’s time to think about how to throw out the excess.

Here are a few tips on how to declutter without stress:

  • Don’t try to do it all at once. Take 10 minutes a day to declutter.
  • Distribute items in three boxes: keep, give away/donate, and throw away.
  • Use the “buy one thing, get rid of one” rule.
  • Do not allow the emergence of “hot spots” where junk tends to accumulate.
  • Keep your toiletries in a special box.
  • Keep all your papers and documents in folders.

Step 2: Infuse your house with lagom

lagom philosophy image

Reduce the number of items

For several months, once a week, remove one item from each room — and very soon you will notice that the energy of your house has improved.

Be mindful of what you buy

If you buy a new item, let it be not only beautiful but also functional and high-quality item. Look for handmade items, visit fairs, and meet new artists and designers. But before you buy anything ask yourself if you really need it or perhaps your home already has everything you need.

Invite nature into your house

Use natural eco-friendly materials in the decor. Get indoor plants. Collect twigs, snags, acorns, pebbles from the beach — all this brings you closer to nature. As you may already know, nature heals and if you invite nature into your house you also infuse it with peaceful and healing energy.

Do not clutter the house

Keep it simple. For each new item, get rid of one old.

Step 3: Be mindful of your food

We, Americans, tend to waste lots of food. It makes us spend more money than you probably should. But if we become more mindful in planning and organizing food we can actually save more money than you may think. And the less money we spend the less stress we have. Here are a few tips on how to be more organized with your food.

Freeze your food

Frozen herbs image

Label the bags of frozen items so that you don’t confuse chili with strawberries.

You can freeze herbs, juice, coconut milk in ice molds.

Freeze overripe bananas so you don’t waste them. You can use them later for making ice cream or smoothies.

Don’t let the vegetables wither

To keep salad leaves and green leafy vegetables fresh longer, wash them, put them in a sealed bag, and put them in the vegetable compartment.

Too much parsley or dill? Finely chop it and freeze it. You can use it for soups and other dishes.

Buy seasonal and local products

Do not use expensive imported ingredients brought from the other side of the planet for preparing your meals. Try to always buy local veggies, berries, and fruit. Find out which fruits and vegetables are in season and try to cook seasonally.

Plan your menu a week in advance

This is a super helpful tip for those who want to reduce the amount of food waste. During the week, prepare simple dishes. Leave new and complex recipes for the weekend, when you have more time. This will also help you to be less stressed about not having enough time.

Step 4: Create a balance between work and personal time

what is lagom image

We tend to go from one polarity to another. Today we’re working hard with no breaks and rest, and tomorrow we are so exhausted that have zero motivation even to get up from the bed. Lagom teaches us to create a balance between work and personal time that you can use for hobby, yoga, rest, or other things you like to do during your free time. Here are some tips on how to do it.

Reduce the number of tasks scheduled for the week and weekend

On the weekend, choose one day when you have nothing planned. This is a day for restoring balance, spending time spontaneously, and communicating with your family and friends.

Good rest is the key to efficiency and stress reduction

Try to go to bed on time and get up a little earlier than usual. An extra half hour in the morning will give you a sense of control over time and self-confidence that you are unlikely to be able to experience while doing everything on the run. If it is still dark outside when you get up, light a candle and drink tea from your favorite mug. It will give you a feeling of self-care and the necessary comfort for feeling safe and relaxed.

Step 5: Take care of your health

Swedish Philosophy For Living a Meaningful Life Image

A healthy body and a balanced mind lead to a happy life and less stress. Lagom gives us some tips on how to take care of our health and be more balanced.

Make your workout easier and don’t overdo it

Everyone should make time for rest, work, and active movement. Find a way to work out in a way that brings real benefits to both body and spirit. Make sure that you actually enjoy your workout time. For example, go for a run alone to clear your mind, or go for a walk with friends to chat. If you feel like lifting weights brings more stress to you than enjoyment, then maybe yoga or cardio exercises will suit you better? Don’t try to copy others. Find your own unique way to work out and enjoy it!

Seek balance, but don’t be obsessed with it

There is no doubt that balance is the key component for our physical and mental health. However, we all need to accept that there can always be a slight imbalance in life. There is no need to feel stressed about it. Each of us, from time to time, has days when we have too much work and it’s hard to find time for quality rest. Sometimes it is impossible to find time for the gym and working out. Don’t feel stressed or guilty about that.

Keep it simple

Use natural cosmetics. Skincare is really simple — healthy food, rest, and fresh air will do almost all the work for you.

Step 6: Spend more time outside in contact with nature

Swedish philosophy lagom image

Swedes love to spend time in nature. More than half of Sweden’s territory is covered with forest. Nature is an integral part of Swedes’ life.

The state also strongly supports such leisure. In Sweden, there is a concept called “Allemansrätten” – everyone’s right to access certain public or privately owned land, lakes, and rivers for recreation and exercise. Everyone can freely walk, pick mushrooms and berries, and camp in any place if it does not disturb the peace of others. So, Swedes in any weather go out of town, have picnics, go sailing, etc.

In 2016, the World Wide Fund for Nature conducted a study that found that those who regularly go out to nature feel happier and healthier. Another study also showed that during these “nature time”, we calm down, restore the psyche, and become more creative and peaceful.

Step 7: Don’t get involved into arguments

Try to cultivate peace in every communication you have. Instead of passionately proving your point, try to always find a compromise. If you feel like your opinion is not welcomed, let your opponent keep his/her views, don’t try to change them. Arguments and conflicts lead to stresses, disappointments, and breakups. You can always walk away from the argument and let people have their opinions.

Step 8: Invite celebration into your life

Arrange small celebrations for yourself for your family and friends. In Sweden, there are many traditions that are designed to unite friends, colleagues, and family members. For example, the sacred Swedish Fika ritual – a coffee break with sweets. Its essence is simple: a hot drink, a treat, and communication without haste. Or Fredagsmys – a cozy Friday ritual, when you are gathering with the family, watch a movie, and eat something tasty. It is these small traditions that create unforgettable memories, evoke a smile, and create a feeling of being loved. This atmosphere reduces stress and makes life more enjoyable.

The Bottom Line

You can start practicing lagom by asking yourself, “Is this lagom?”. When you look inside your crowded closet, or when a big portion of food is placed in front of you, or when you consider that second cookie, ask yourself if you really need it, if it is lagom. Constantly, try to build that balance between work and your personal life. Always make sure you find time to do the things you love. Keep track of your spending, consciously reduce your environmental impact on the world, take purposeful breaks from work, spend quality time with family and friends. By bringing lagom into your life you become much happier, more peaceful, and less stressed.

“The difference between theism and nontheism is not whether one does or does not believe in God. Theism is a deep-seated conviction that there’s some hand to hold: if we just do the right things, someone will appreciate us and take care of us. Nontheism is relaxing with the ambiguity and uncertainty of the present moment without reaching for anything to protect ourselves.”
― Pema Chodron

#11

“One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don’t leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”
Osho

Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind.”
― Anthony de Mello

#16

“I once listened to an Indian on television say that God was in the wind and the water, and I wondered at how beautiful that was because it meant you could swim in Him or have Him brush your face in a breeze.”

Kabir poem image

“Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
not in masses,
nor kirtans,
not in legs winding around your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me,
you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.”
― Kabir

“Crying is one of the highest devotional songs. One who knows crying, knows spiritual practice. If you can cry with a pure heart, nothing else compares to such a prayer. Crying includes all the principles of Yoga.”
― Kripalvanandji

#25

“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.”
― Alice Walker

#26

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”

#27

“Religion is for people who’re afraid of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who’ve already been there.”
― Vine Deloria Jr.

#28

“Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don’t know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don’t know.”
― Pema Chödrön

#29

“Om is not just a sound or vibration. It is not just a symbol. It is the entire cosmos, whatever we can see, touch, hear and feel. Moreover, it is all that is within our perception and all that is beyond our perception. It is the core of our very existence. If you think of Om only as a sound, a technique or a symbol of the Divine, you will miss it altogether. Om is the mysterious cosmic energy that is the substratum of all the things and all the beings of the entire universe. It is an eternal song of the Divine. It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.”
― Amit Ray

#30

“Love is not an emotion. It is your very existence.”
― Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

#31

spiritual quote about following spiritual path image

“Your life is your spiritual path. It’s what’s right in front of you. You can’t live anyone else’s life. The task is to live yours and stop trying to copy one you think looks better.”
― Sandy Nathan

#32

“You have been to hell, Ketut?”
He smiled. Of course he’s been there.
What’s it like in hell?”
Same like in heaven,” he said.
He saw my confusion and tried to explain. “Universe is a circle, Liss.”
He said. “To up, to down — all same, at end.”
I remembered an old Christian mystic notion: As above, so below.
I asked. “Then how can you tell the difference between heaven and hell?”
Because of how you go. Heaven, you go up, through seven happy places. Hell, you go down, through seven sad places. This is why it better for you to go up, Liss.” He laughed.
Same-same,” he said. “Same in end, so better to be happy in journey.”
I said, “So, if heaven is love, then hell is.. “
Love, too,” he said.
Ketut laughed again, “Always so difficult for young people to understand this!”
―Elizabeth Gilbert

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”

Enlightenment means taking full responsibility for your life.”
– William Blake

– Eckhart Tolle

#46

“The five points of Yama, together with the five points of Niyama, remind us of the Ten Commandments of the Christian and Jewish faiths, as well as of the ten virtues of Buddhism. In fact, there is no religion without these moral or ethical codes. All spiritual life should be based on these things. They are the foundation stones without which we can never build anything lasting.”
― Sri S. Satchidananda

– Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

#53

“One of the most important of life’s lessons is to learn independence, to understand freedom. This means independence from attachments, from results, from opinions, and from expectations. Breaking attachments leads to freedom, but breaking attachments does not mean abandoning a loving and meaningful relationship, a relationship that nourishes your soul. It means ending dependency on any person or thing. Love is never a dependency.”
― Brian Weiss

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Important Astrological Events In July 2020 Image

In this article, I will share with you the important astrological events in July 2020, which will entail certain life and karmic lessons. Also, I will share some recommendations and tips that will help you to make July 2020 harmonious and joyful.

Astrological Events In July 2020

Lunar Eclipse (July 4th-5th)

This month we are going to witness the third eclipse of the season which will be a penumbral lunar eclipse. This is one of the most important astrological events in July!

In the United States, the eclipse will begin on July 4th at 11:07 PM EDT as the moon starts to slide into the Earth’s outer orbit, and end on July 5th at 1:52 AM EDT.

Eclipses give opportunities for new information and new energy to enter our planetary system so we can integrate it into our bodies and our lives. This is how humanity evolves and develops. The lunar eclipse provides new opportunities at the material level. After this eclipse, every person will feel changes their life.

The Moon will be located in the Purvashadha nakshatra. The main characters of this nakshatra are empowerment and strength. The upper level of influence is a strength, and the lower level is interaction. Therefore this eclipse will force people to unite in communities and join different societies for achieving their life goals.

The lesson to learn:

During this period, it is recommended to focus on the important goals of your life, your mission, and your purpose. You already may notice a big division of society into different segments which makes people choose one of the two sides. This leads to a big imbalance and an increase in fighting intentions. This eclipse will give you an opportunity to think about what role you play for the good of the planet. But instead of choosing the side, try to find an optimal position in your perspective which will help you to brings more peace and harmony to the world rather than helping to win one of the two fighting sides.

Recommendations for lunar eclipse:

  • Take a bath or shower (it is better to do this right at the moment of the Eclipse);
  • Fast (if it is difficult to completely give up food, limit yourself to light vegan food and juices);
  • Engage in some quiet activity that will not cause any strong emotions and stress;
  • Meditate;
  • Read sacred texts and spiritual literature;
  • Avoid watching horror movies;
  • Observe your mind and be present;
  • Avoid toxic people and being involved in conflicts and negative situations.

On the day of the Lunar Eclipse is not recommended:

  • Leave the house 4 hours before and after the eclipse;
  • To visit places of entertainment;
  • Drink alcohol, smoke, or take psychotropic medications;
  • Leave food and water under the open sky (it is believed that everything that was exposed to the Eclipse is no longer suitable as food);
  • Wear new clothes;
  • Sign contracts;
  • Get married;
  • Make important decisions;
  • Moongazing (it is dangerous to look at the Moon during the eclipse!);
  • Make investments;

Guru Purnima (July 5th)

Guru Purnima Image

It is an important day dedicated to the Guru or teacher. This year, Guru Purnima will be celebrated on July 5. 

This is the day (and also the day before Purnima) when we should look inside ourselves, listen to our inner voice, calm our emotions, and focus on peace and harmony. During Purnima, a huge release of lunar energy occurs. And if we use this time properly, we can achieve maximum inner harmony.

Recommendations for Guru Purnima:

  • watch your emotions, don’t let them control you;
  • stay peaceful and calm;
  • practice meditation;
  • do charity;
  • pay respect to your teachers;
  • pray or chant mantras.

It is not recommended:

  • to do material things;
  • make important appointments;
  • disrespect teachers or criticize them;
  • get involved in emotional discussions or arguments/conflicts.

Sun Transit In Cancer (July 16th – August 16th)

The Sun will transit into the sign of Cancer on July 16th and will remain in this sign till August 16th, 2020.

The very day of the Sun transit (July 16th, 2020) is unfavorable for any beginnings, starting new projects, signing contracts, and agreements.

Cancer is a friendly sign for the Sun. Therefore the Sun will become stronger. Also, it will get out of the influence of Rahu.

The Sun in Cancer will strengthen emotions and sensitivity, give kindness, and softness. Some people may feel that they are more interested in spending time at home with the family and loved ones.

The main recommendation for this period is to take emotions under control. Don’t let your emotions destroy your relationship/friendship. Take some time to rest and relax.

Mars Transit In Pisces (June 18th – August 16th)

Mars Transit In Pisces Image

This transit started on June 18th and will continue until August 16th. Thus it will affect the whole month of July.

Mars is a fiery and martial planet. Pisces is a water sign and is governed by Jupiter which has a friendly relationship with Mars. Pisces represents intuition, emotions, and compassion. Mars is responsible for action, courage, and will power.

Mars is the force in our minds that makes us act and make decisions. Pisces create an energetic environment in which the results of the systematic activities are summed up, a philosophy is formed, and comes an understanding of death or the completion of processes that eventually need to be let go.⠀

This transit of the Fire element into the Water element is likely to produce a “steam” of emotions. The good news is if you know how to control this energy properly it can take you to great heights in all phases of your life.

Recommendations for Mars transit in Pisces period:

  • Instead of pushing your ideas to others and forcing your life to go a certain way, try to trust the Universe, follow the signs, and move with the flow;
  • Any decisions you make should be aimed at the highest good for all;
  • Be more creative and focus on self-expression through different forms of art. ⠀
  • Perceive the world with an open heart through the prism of unconditional love.

Mercury Retrograde (June 19th – July 11th)

Mercury retrograde astrological event in July Image

The period of Mercury retrograde began on June 19th and will end on July 11th.

Mercury is responsible for intellectual abilities, speech, communication, receiving and assimilating information, family and business connections, trade relations. Therefore, during this period we experience a decrease in activity in these areas.⠀

During Mercury retrograde period it is recommended:

  • to complete projects; ⠀
  • to clean the house, declutter, and re-organize the space;
  • calm your mind and meditate; ⠀
  • to restore lost connections and contacts (both in personal life and in business); ⠀ ⠀
  • meet with old friends;
  • take obstacles calmly without stress and worries;⠀
  • to repair all types of gadgets, as well as cars, bicycles.

It is not recommended during Mercury retrograde:⠀

  • to be stressed or worried about the obstacles on your way;⠀⠀
  • negotiate, sign contracts or agreements;
  • get married;
  • buy or sell real estate;
  • change the job;
  • take long trips.⠀

Jupiter Retrograde (May 14th – September 12th)

Jupiter continues its retrograde movement which will last until September 12th.

During this period, most of us feel the influence of karmic lessons related to career and finance. Some people lose their jobs, others may experience money loss and obstacles. Also, some people may find themselves not being fully satisfied with their religion/spiritual path.

Recommendations for Jupiter retrograde period:

  • This is the time to be more rational and practical in the use of your finances.
  • Be careful in choosing a new religious/spiritual path.
  • As for legal and political issues, as well as the opening of large-scale projects, it is better to postpone all this for later in order to make more objective decisions.

Saturn Retrograde (May 11th – September 29th)

Saturn retrograde Image

Saturn continues its retrograde movement which will last until September 29th. And this retrograde motion is completing our list of the most important astrological events in July 2020.

In Vedic Astrology, Shani or Saturn is a Karmic planet. It is also called the God of Justice. Saturn is a hard taskmaster. It judges our actions minutely which in turn affects our destiny. During its retrograde motion, Saturn becomes more intense in its gaze.

Saturn governs the hard work, discipline, and righteousness of a person.

The retrograde movement of Saturn is associated with delays, denial, misery, debts, and chronic health issues. There is always something drastic happening during the Saturn retrograde period not just on personal but also on a global level.

This is the time to re-think your projects, responsibilities, and commitments. If you just don’t feel right about something you have taken on, it may give you a chance to renegotiate or to re-think a relationship or project.

During this time, your purpose may be questioned, you may get various tasks, and you will experience the manifestations of your karma.

The main recommendation here is to be patient and humble. Take all the obstacles and life challenges as the tools for working on your karma.

The Bottom Line

As you can see, there is a number of important astrological events in July that need to be considered when planning your month. July 2020 will activate some karmic lessons and provide the necessary resources for completing whatever needs to be finished. Therefore, try to devote this month to rest and recuperation, and important tasks and decisions it’s better to schedule to the next month.
