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 retrograde astrological event in July Image

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.

Astrological Events In August 2020 Image

After a relaxing July when all attention was focused on rest and recuperation, we move into a new period where our perception of life will change. In this article, I will share with you the important astrological events in August 2020, and give a detailed description of the transits of the planets and recommendations for a harmonious life.

Astrological Events In August 2020

Mercury Transit In Cancer (August 2nd)

Mercury image

The Vedic legend says that Mercury is the offspring of Jupiter and Moon, hence it has the characteristics of both of these planets. Mercury is the key significator of our communication skills, analytical abilities, and intellect. So it is a key planet for Lawyers, sales professionals, artists, and scientists. 

This year, the Mercury transit in Cancer will take place on August 2, 2020, and will remain in this position till August 17th, 2020.

Until August 17th, Mercury as the principle of speech will allow you to feed others with positive emotions through speech and give a sense of security, comfort, and belonging to the community.

This period is favorable for the development of communication skills with family and close friends. Communication is imbued with the qualities of sensuality and care. During this time people’s judgments will be traditional, conservative, and based on received emotions. It is going to be difficult to abstract your mind from emotions.

Recommendations for this period (August 2nd – August 17th):

  • Watch your emotions;
  • Try to perceive situations in life, using logic and objectivity;
  • Do not get stuck in feelings of resentment and sacrifice, and try to find options for the development of your own consciousness;
  • Invest your time in studying and learning foreign languages.

Mars Transit In Aries (August 16th)

Planet Mars Image

Mars as a principle of action in our minds becomes very powerful. In August 2020, it brings a lot of fire energy to our consciousness, so it is important to use this power correctly. Fire is the element that has the power to transform our consciousness. Thanks to the fire element, we can help, save, feed, but we can also burn, injure, and kill. Therefore, this period should be lived consciously and compassionately.

Recommendations for this period:

  • work on overcoming your fears;
  • strive to take a leadership position;
  • take responsibility;
  • do sports and yoga;
  • develop perseverance, determination, and drive;
  • work on developing diplomatic qualities;
  • use the power of Mars for good purposes to realize your desires and ambitions.

Sun Transit In Leo (August 16th)

Cosmic Sun Image

On August 16th the Sun transit in Leo will take place, and it will stay in this position till September 16th 2020.

The sun is a symbol of the soul, the inner center of each person. In the sky, the Sun is the center of the solar system. And this transit of the Sun in Leo is especially important because it will make you think about the purpose of your soul and your life mission.

Recommendations for this period:

  • develop your inner power;
  • learn to take a central position and act with a sense of responsibility to other people;
  • work on developing your unique qualities;
  • learn to value the past because it is the key to today’s resources;
  • develop communication abilities;
  • respect traditions and the law;
  • take care of others;
  • do charity work;
  • pay tithe;
  • take care of your family members and friends;
  • show respect to your deceased relatives, even if you didn’t know them.

In Conclusion

As you can see, there are three important astrological events in August 2020 that need to be considered when planning your month.

We can conclude that the General mood of the month is a call to action. If you have a ready-made plan to implement your ideas, then this is a great time to declare yourself. If you are moving with the flow of life and you do not have outstanding ambitions, show the strength of your personality within your family – take care of your elders, and support the traditions of your ancestors. In general, this is a good time to increase your physical activity, start working out more, practice yoga, and strengthen your spirit.

Feng Shui Astrology for August: the Month of the Wood Monkey

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology For August 2000 Wood Monkey Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the seventh month of the year starts on August 8th, 2020, and ends on September 7th, 2020. Therefore, all the recommendations are given in this article will be accurate until September 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of 5 elements.

August 2020 is the month of the Wood Monkey. In this article, I will share with you what kind of energy and events to expect in August and how to properly choose dates for different events.

Feng Shui Astrology for August 2020

The Energy of the Month of the Wood Monkey

According to the Chinese calendar, August 2020 is ruled by the Wood Monkey.

In Chinese mythology, the Wood Monkey is an image of a lying tree felled with a sharp axe. Such a tree has lost its roots and lacks support, which may indicate a general sense of insecurity in the world. In addition, the metal element of the Monkey strengthens the water element of the year of the Rat. Therefore, most people will feel anxiety and fear for their future. Under the influence of such moods, people can become irritated and crave justice at the slightest provocation.

Feng Shui Astrology for August 2020 Image

Other characteristics of the Monkey are the power of speech, eloquence, and command of the word.

All this suggests that we can expect public statements, and in general, the month promises to be less calm than July 2020.

On the other hand, August 2020 can give an impulse to start new projects. If something is started in August 2020, it will be implemented faster. Therefore, it is better to start something positive, so that it develops fast.

Auspicious Days For August 2020

August 17th and 29th are good dates for any positive things. Actions started on these dates will get off to a good start and have every chance of success. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Dragon.

August 13th and 25th, September 6th are good dates for long-term affairs and getting stable results. These dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Horse.

Days With a Higher Risk of Getting Viruses And Other Infectious Diseases

August 28th and 30th – during these days it’s easier to get a disease, which is especially important at the present time. Therefore, make sure during these days to practice social distancing and stay home, as there is an increased risk of getting infections and viruses!

Inauspicious Days For August 2020

August 7th, 15th, 19th, 27th, 31st are unfavorable dates to start important things.

August 8th and 20th, September 1st are not suitable for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use them to complete old cases.

According to Feng Shui astrology, each of the 9 sectors of your house is under the influence of a certain type of energy. This energy changes from month to month, from year to year. In this particular article, I will not be talking about the annual chart but focusing on the energy influence of the month.

Center

The threat of COVID-19 continues to loom large, and the Illness star flying into the central sector could bring renewed problems.

Display The 7 Medicine Buddha Plaque for Health Protection in the central part of your house. This beautiful plaque will not only bring healing and good health but also good fortune and success.

Display White Tara’s Gau in the center of your living room, especially if you have elderly family members living with you. White Tara is the goddess of good health and longevity, is capable of alleviating the pain or suffering of those in poor health or experiencing severe disease.

North

Be careful if your main door is located here! The energy of this sector is bringing robbery and betrayal this month! Therefore, it is essential to protect your house against the negative influences of the energy of the month.

Display the Blue Rhino & Elephant with Talisman Feathers to protect your home against robbery and violence. This is a powerful protection against both spiritual and material losses. It is especially important for those who have to face potentially dangerous situations regularly or are born in the year of the Snake, Rooster, Dog, or Boar.

Place the Red Dragon holding Fireball in this sector to suppress the quarrelsome energy.

If your bedroom is located in this sector, carry the Anti-Robbery Amulet with Rhino & Elephant.

Northwest

This sector radiates Yang energy that makes men more aggressive but it boosts leadership luck. This is an auspicious sector for business and commerce, bringing luck to business owners and leaders. To activate this type of luck, place Ru Yi here. It’s better to activate this sector at the workplace than at home.

However, this sector still radiates quarrelsome energy which needs to be suppressed. Place the Red Dragon holding Fireball in this sector. It will help you to maintain peace at home.

Fire Dragon Holding Fireball Image

Northeast

The misfortune energy generates destructive Chi in this sector bringing injuries caused by accidents. Those occupying this sector should be more careful when out and about. With the coronavirus still being a threat, carry the Buddha Vairocana Amulet to stay protected.

Work will be quite stressful, as occupants find creativity drying up. Display a Laughing Buddha in the Northeast to attract solutions to your problems.

Display a miniature 5 Element Pagoda in this sector to control negative Chi.

5 Element Pagoda Feng Shui Astrology Image

East

This is the most dangerous sector in August 2020! The East sector brings all kinds of calamities – misfortune, money loss, accidents, fires, and sickness.

Therefore, it is extremely important to keep this sector quiet this month! Move anything that makes noise out of this part of the house – TVs, stereos, piano. If the sitting area of your living room is located in the East, rearrange your furniture for the month.

Those whose bedrooms are located in the East part of the house should move to another room to protect their luck.

Elderly residents should avoid the East this month!

It is vital to display the 5 Element Pagoda in the East sector of your house to protect yourself and your family members.

West

This sector brings good fortune in romance and literary pursuits. Display a pair of Mandarin Ducks here to activate your romantic luck.

West part of the house is also a good place for studying and preparing for exams. Set up your desk here or spend more time in this sector if you are a student.

This sector also brings success in business and career pursuits. To activate the auspicious energy of this sector, display Luo Han statue here. It increases intellect, brings great strategy, and activates the ability to rise up to high positions of leadership and power. All CEOS, managers, and anyone working in a corporate environment should display this Luo Han in the home or office.

Mandarin Ducks Image

South

This sector brings unexpected windfall luck this month. There continues to be opportunities in the stock market for those who spend a lot of time in this sector. Moreover, this sector also brings recognition and promotion luck!

To tap into the auspicious energy of this sector, display the Windhorse-Boosting Victory Flag in this sector.

Unfortunately, there are lingering illness energies that continue to bring health problems. To neutralize these illness energies, display a Healing Herbs Wu Lou and the White Tara Gau here.

Pay attention to what day you’re picking for your next hair salon appointment – only choose good days for abundance haircuts in August 2020.

Why Is Hair So Important?

Since ancient times, people have given hair and any manipulation of it a sacred meaning. It was thought, that through one’s hair people can connect with the Universe. Hair serves as “antennas” and “guides” between our world and the world of Heaven. And so far this knowledge has not lost its relevance. Hair connects us with Higher forces, cosmic energy, God, Higher consciousness. By connecting through the hair to the Cosmos, a person is fed by the energies of Abundance and Health.

There were many beliefs associated with hair, some of them have survived to the present day. For example: in any case, you should not get a haircut by yourself, as in this case there is a deformation of your energy field, which can lead to poor health. It is also not recommended to get a haircut on the days of a lunar or solar Eclipse: the hair can suffer, weaken, lose shine, and volume.

What Are “Abundance Haircuts”?

It has long been known that there are days when it is especially favorable to cut hair. Among these days there are days of “Abundance haircuts.”

Abundance haircuts is a special ritual to attract abundance flows into your life. It is good to say special affirmations and mantras for abundance and prosperity on this day. So you will strengthen the ritual haircut and make it a more effective and efficient force.
