This will be a big month, for we have two major eclipses, one July 2 in Cancer, and the other July 16 in Capricorn. Eclipses are a big deal in astrology, because they are the most dramatic tool the universe uses to shake us awake and create instant change. If you know your rising sign, read for that sign as well, for both forecasts would apply to you, and you will have a 360-degree picture of the month ahead.
If you would like to know more about the nature of eclipses, you can read my essay, All About Eclipes: A Guide for Coping with Them, found on my home page of my website, AstrologyZone.com if you scroll down. If you have the premium version of my app (available on iTunes or Google Play, you can read the same essay there.
My app is called Daily Horoscope AstrologyZone + More by Susan Miller ($4.99 for one month for the premium version). To find the essay, go to the hamburger stack in the upper left corner, as it is called in the industry, and you will see on the menu the section called Life, Love + More—my piece on eclipses is located under Susan’s Essays.
If you would like to know more about Mercury retrograde, which will be at play all this month as well, you will see another essay I wrote on my home page of my website called Everything You Need to Know About Mercury Retrograde. That essay is also on the premium version of my app in the same section.
On the home page of my website I also have created two tables: one of Mercury retrograde dates, and another of coming eclipses, and in both cases the dates go until 2030.
Now let’s turn to one of my appearances in Baltimore, Maryland, which I am excited about for I will speak on the Year Ahead 2020 on September 1, part of the Labor Day Weekend in the USA. The four-day convention will take place at the Baltimore Hyatt Inner Harbor Hotel. The sponsor of the event is NCGR (National Council for Geo-Cosmic Research), a famous, respected astrological club that has planned a fun set of events suitable for everyone at every level, from beginner to professional, to help you learn more about astrology.
My second talk at the NCGR Baltimore Conference will take place on the same day, September 1, and is called Writing for Magazines. I will be part of a three-person panel, and I will speak about what it is like to write astrology for top consumer magazines. (I currently am a monthly contributing editor for nine top fashion magazines abroad each month.) If you hope to write an astrology column someday, or if you are just curious about how an astrologer goes about writing for a mass audience, this panel would be a must to attend.
If you go to the Baltimore Convention, be sure to get a ticket to the Banquet as it is always fun. If you book the Baltimore Hyatt Inner Harbor Hotel, you will get a code to use for a generous discount.
You can buy a one-day ticket to the Convention or stay the entire time. For more information go to my home page, scroll down to Appearances in a blue box, and you will see the word Baltimore.

On another topic, you may have seen my many posts and photographs of the Daios Hotel in Greece, on the island of Crete, on my Instagram or Twitter accounts, @AstrologyZone (I use the same name for both venues), that I took at the start of June. I was so surprised at your overwhelming response! I met so many readers during the eight days I was there. I was booked around the clock.
The readers came from Greece, Romania, Serbia, India, Turkey, Bulgaria, Brussels, England, USA, Spain, and more. I feel the best way to get to know a country is to get to know the people and to spend quality time together. That happened in Greece, and I loved every part of my trip. Most readers stayed at the hotel, and we got to see one another a bit more. I also met with journalists from all over Europe. Courtney, my assistant, came too, and we both learned so much by talking with the readers. Thank you for signing up for having your chart done in Crete!
Now that I am back in New York, I am working on my Year Ahead 2020 book and, with my favorite artist, Izak Zenou, on my Year Ahead 2020 Astrological Illustrated Calendar. Last year I asked Izak to illustrate women of the world in their native cities. It was such a success that we are again using the same theme with different locations.
Some of you have asked about my involvement with My Personal Horoscope which has ended. I have not been associated with the publisher there, American Direct Book, because I am so busy writing my book and calendar and planning fun events for later this year. If you have a question about My Personal Horoscope that you ordered from America Direct Book, AmericaDirectBook.com please go directly to their website for help, as we are no longer working together. If you still see my name on any of that company’s communications, please take a screen shot and show us, as it might have been an oversight on their part—they were supposed to remove my name.
I can’t wait to show you the new things I am working on for the monumental year 2020!
Please let me know how the two eclipses this month affect you, if at all. You might want to wait a week to allow the eclipse time to deliver its entire message—most eclipses have a second act. Go to any of my social media accounts on Twitter or Instagram (@AstrologyZone for both) or on Facebook (Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone, with me wearing a white blouse) to post your experiences. Always look for the verified check mark next to my name as some people are pretending to be me.
I want to read your comments, for if I study the results of these eclipses that you report, you will make me a better astrologer. I thank you for that!
