The Stars This Week: July 15-21, 2013
Out with the Old, in with the New!

It's time to make changes in your life as revolutionary Uranus turns retrograde on July 17! Are you ready for good news? Keep your ears and eyes open as lucky Jupiter trines Saturn and Neptune on July 17. Then, serious Saturn helps you solidify your goals with a trine to imaginative Neptune on July 19. Mercury finally turns direct on July 20, when it's time to take your best ideas and run with them!

July 17: Uranus turns retrograde
When Uranus changes direction, expect surprises. This planet has more independent, rebellious energy than a roomful of Aquarians! If you're in a situation where you feel stuck, plan on something or someone pulling you out of your ruts and unhealthy habits; you can contribute by doing everything possible to embrace the changes occurring all around you. Uranus in Aries brings exciting, fun, pioneering energy. If you've been hoping to freshen things up, now is the time!

July 17: Jupiter trines Saturn and Neptune
The unusual major aspect pattern known as a grand trine is one of the most beneficial aspects the heavens can bestow. Jupiter is already considered a lucky planet, so consider your good fortune doubled on this auspicious day! As Jupiter trines stable Saturn and dreamy Neptune, your life opens up to show you a pathway toward a better life. Just keep in mind that unpredictable Uranus is also turning retrograde on this same day, throwing a wild card into the mix. Remain alert so you can take advantage of this wonderful energy!

July 19: Saturn trines Neptune
This aspect is an important part of July 17's grand trine energy, when both Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces trined Jupiter in Cancer. Practical Saturn lends support now to your creativity and imagination, so use this time to showcase your talents and reach out to anyone in a position of authority who may be willing to help you. If you're in such a position yourself, invest in those who've put in hard work and paid their dues.

July 20: Mercury turns direct
The powerful little communication planet Mercury turned retrograde in Cancer on June 26. During these last three-and-a-half weeks, you may have found yourself feeling unusually sensitive. Conversations about family, home, security concerns, and your emotional well-being have dominated this retrograde period, so you're probably more than ready to move on to other topics! But since Mercury will continue to travel through Cancer until August 8, pace yourself, for your strongest feelings and conversations continue to revolve around emotional subjects until early next month. Take advantage of every bit of this time to straighten out misunderstandings and process your feelings.
