To My Dear Friends and Community,
You think June was filled with changes? Well, here comes July. A roller coaster of a month that will allow us to happily celebrate, but not for long.
The planets during the first few weeks of July indicate that something very fortunate and exciting may happen that warrants celebration or victory, but then one of the biggest astrological events of the year will occur and violence will follow. The beginning of the end.
Now let’s dive into July! From July 2 – July 12, all the personal planets except the Sun (even the Moon on July 2) are in their own signs of rulership. Saturn in Aquarius, Jupiter in Pisces, Mars in Aries, Venus in Taurus, and Mercury in Gemini. This means the planets are very strong and can powerfully express their innate nature. But being this strong doesn’t mean that they cooperate with one another. This rare planetary alignment can be used for great personal gains and can lead to prosperity, so if you have a project you’ve been waiting to start, manifest and start it now!
Because this is perceived as positive energy, I believe something will occur that uplifts the mass consciousness with a celebration. But there is an opposing view, and the celebration is short lived. On July 12 Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn turning the focus to deep global governmental problems. Saturn will be in Capricorn July 12 – January 17, 2023. During this time, you can expect huge changes within the world economy and many changes with political leaders. I see surprising shifts in leadership around the world, especially in the United States. Many will be shocked and unable to believe what is about to unfold.
This will begin with the biggest astrological event of the year when Uranus, Rahu and Mars conjunct exactly at 24 degrees Aries July 31 -August 1. This is the beginning of the end. The rest of 2022 will be extremely violent.
The reason for this belief is taken from history. The last time these three planets (Uranus, Rahu, and Mars) came together in Aries was in 1855. It was believed that this was the spark that began the Civil War.
The Contested Election of 1855
“Set against the backdrop of the Kansas – Nebraska Act and
the debate over whether Kansas would enter the Union as a
free or slave state, the territory’s election of March 1855 is
notorious for the fraudulent voting intimidation that took
place at the polls.”
“Tensions along the Missouri – Kansas boarder culminated
in the violence of BLEEDING KANSAS, which both sides
carried out with equal ferocity, and the national divisions
represented by the boarder war ultimately intensified into
the American Civil War.”

Will previous events be stirred up? Could this all bring about a deeply contested matter concerning voter fraud again? Will history repeat itself? Today’s political unrest is uncomfortably similar to the last time these planets came together in Aries.
Mars is the planet of war, violence, anger, weapons and fire, and combining it with the unpredictability and suddenness of Uranus plus Rahu magnifies the planets it conjuncts. Furthermore, the sign Aries makes these events more likely since Mars becomes more powerful in this sign and is very impulsive and fast acting. We have a very explosive round of events about to take place.
Astrologically, these events will not only be occurring on the days these planets are exactly conjunct, but also will begin heating up as soon as Mars enters Aries and remains there from June 27 – August 10. Unfortunately, as Mars begins slowing down and preparing to go retrograde, this only creates more violence. Retrograde Mars always indicates difficulty that has not been resolved, and the sign is an indication of what will occur.
Mars will be retrograde October 30 – January 12, but it will be remaining in Taurus August 10 – October 15, then retrograde back into Taurus November 13 – March 12. During this time, Mars will be in Taurus for a total of about six months. In this portion of the zodiac, Mars will be transiting over stars in the Pleiades, which are tied to strong emotions. In Vedic myth, these stars indicate the weeping sisters who were falsely accused of adultery with their husbands. Could this indicate anything to do with false accusations? According to symbology and mythology, it just might. We will see what unfolds!
Moreover, as Saturn transits back into Capricorn, it will station direct on October 22 at 24 degrees Capricorn. During September and October, it is stationing in a square to Uranus at 24 degrees of Aries. This is another indicator of great violence and upheaval. This aspect has notoriously occurred during times of major earthquakes, airline crashes and economic crashes.
To sum it all up, this is a very pivotal month of enormous, sudden and explosive events that will trigger tremendous changes. The astrological-historical patterns strongly suggest this could culminate into a modern Civil War not just in America but around the whole world. I know I see much of this occurring in the United States, but it will be replicated all over the world.
So, what can we do to prepare ourselves?
With knowledge and preparation, you can protect your assets. The stock market will begin to shift downward as all the violence begins to take place. It will come back up, but it will take longer this time, maybe a year. Cryptocurrency is not the answer either. You could just ride the wave for the next year or put it in savings. Just know it is a time to buckle down and remember it will not last forever.
Do not let fear control you! Be strong, positive, and kind. Corruption will be exposed, and fighting will break out, but then will come a time of great healing. To find the truth, we must go through the tunnel of fire. The most intense of times will be the last part of this year 2022.
This has happened to the world before, and historically, it surmounted into a war that finally ended the mounting problems. The duality of good and evil will always be in this worldly dimension, and the scale will always sway back and forth between the two. In reality, no one ever wins a war. But we can all do our part by tuning into our spiritual selves and being genuinely good humans.
We will survive together, just as we have all the other cycles. The light always extinguishes the dark, so come from a place of goodness and light. Look at this as a movie being projected outside your world.
Don’t let fear paralyze you. Know that the more kindness you give, the better life will be. This will not destroy your world unless you let it. Find your truth and spirituality by connecting to your inner spirit which is connected to the Divine, and you will be protected on all levels.

- This is an intense time where people are eager to assert themselves in an aggressive and dominating nature. While it is good to get your point across during this transit, be sure not to step outside of your normal boundaries. This can cause setbacks in the future. At the same time, make sure people are not trying to control or dominate you. Don’t be afraid to speak up in a healthy manner to get your point across.
