Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Let’s turn to the new moon of July 20 now. This is not an eclipse, but it is a very strong new moon in Cancer, 28 degrees, and will light your eighth house of other people’s money. This is the second new moon in a row to light that financial house, again, indicating money is an important area of focus for you. Last month, that new moon solar eclipse on June 21 at zero degrees Cancer was fairly friendly, and that may have started the ball rolling.
After June 21, you may have applied for a mortgage or bank loan, or applied for a grant or government stimulus check. You may have received a commission, bonus, or insurance check, or been involved with taxes or a tax refund, college financial aid, student loans, an inheritance, severance, credit card statements, royalties, licensing fees, or venture capital and sponsorship. The areas listed are some examples of one topic that you might be thinking about after the July 20 new moon if none of these drew a spark after the June 21 new moon eclipse. A new moon starts a new trend that will be in place for six months.
This is a tough new moon because Saturn in Capricorn will aim his cannons directly at the tender new moon and Sun in your eighth house. As I mentioned before, Saturn is in your second house of earned income. Pluto is orbiting in lockstep with Saturn, so both are glaring across the sky at the new moon and Sun, and that’s a lot of planetary energy. It seems you will be dealing with a bossy, domineering person, possibly from the government or a credit card company, or a person who wants money from you and is not understanding that we are in the middle of a pandemic, and there is just so much you can do. This new moon is one of those rare tense ones.
The way to deal with it is to be realistic and practical. Tell yourself you can’t quite get out of paying this person, but if you don’t have the money, you will need to make a payment plan. In America, we are paying taxes on July 16 (moved from April 15), but what they are not saying is that for self-employed people, estimated tax is also owed on that same date, effectively causing you to have to possibly pay double the amount. You can only do what you can do, but what you must not do is avoid the situation but deal with it head on. Money will be coming to you, but money will be going out, too.
