A Note from Susan Miller
I feel we all live in our heads so much of the time that when we are faced with a circumstance that forces us to acknowledge that we really do have a body to care for, it sometimes comes as a bit of shock. I suppose if you are an athlete and reading this, you are laughing at me. It’s true, as an astrologer and a writer, I spend most of my days thinking.
When I was wheeled to the outside of the operating room on the morning of June 12, wearing the special blue paper surgical gown and shower cap to cover my hair, it occurred to me that some things in life have to be faced straightforwardly, and gone through by ourselves without help. I feel these experiences make us stronger and also more compassionate of others.
Yet, then I thought about how lucky I was – so many of you, dear readers, said you would send a prayer for me when I posted on Twitter and Facebook that I was about to have an operation. You responded so warmly, far beyond my expectations, and it made my heart swell. Thank you so much.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
July is due to be a wild month, with many twists and turns. We are entering eclipse season, and that means changes are due for everyone, but especially for you. One of the eclipses will be in Aquarius on July 27, and next month, one will be in your opposite sign of Leo, found six months from yours on the horoscope wheel. This suggests you will be thinking about your dreams and goals for the future, and about your relationship with your committed partner, in love or business.
The universe is asking you, what is it that you truly want for your life? If you can answer that question definitively, you will be very close to grasping the prize you seek.
You have had a long series of eclipses in Aquarius and Leo. According to my Table of Eclipses 1994-2030, found on my homepage of Astrology Zone in the lower left hand side if you scroll down, you have already come through the following eclipses:
In 2017, a lunar eclipse in Leo on February 10, 2017; a lunar eclipse in Aquarius on August 7, 2017; followed by that famous eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017 (you might have worn the glasses to look at the Sun if you reside in the US).
In 2018, earlier this year, a lunar eclipse on January 31 occurred in Leo, followed by an eclipse of the Sun on February 15. Take a look at this list to see if anything important happened in your life near the dates listed. For the ones that I listed in August 2017, you’d have to have been born near February 4 for the August 7 eclipse or February 16 for the August 21 eclipse.
This month you will have an eclipse in Aquarius on July 27, affecting Aquarians born January 26, and next month a new moon solar eclipse will arrive on August 11 and fall in Leo 19 degrees (affecting those Aquarians born February 7). I don’t have time to discuss the August 11 eclipse yet, but rest assured, it’s friendly, and nothing like the one July 27 this month.
I will get to discuss the July 27 eclipse in a moment. All I can say in shorthand is that if your birthday falls on January 25 or near that date, you can expect life changes. Next month, a solar eclipse will occur on August 11, so you’d have to have been born near February 7 plus or minus five days to feel its affects.
