Astrology Forecast and Electional Chart for July of 2017

Astrology Forecast and Electional Chart for July of 2017

In episode 114 of the podcast astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show in order to talk about the astrological forecast for July of 2017.This month features Mars falling under the beams of the Sun, a pileup of planets in Leo, lunations in Capricorn and Leo, and much more.

Later in the show I highlight one auspicious electional chart that will be useful for launching different types of ventures and undertakings, using the principles of electional astrology.

This is the first episode where we attempted to do a live stream through Facebook when recording it, and it was a lot of fun, so we are planning on doing it again in the future.

As always, the artwork for this episode comes from the 2017 Planet Watcher astrology calendar.

  • Lovely job, y’all. These are always so informative and inspiring. Your passion for astrology is contagious.

  • Yay for a what the hell will this month look like when the Full Moon of July 2017 is the “Goth Full Moon?” I have shed nearly all my gothy garb, alas….

    Fun episode, and it didn’t occur to me that aahhhhh you have to be on your best behavior, because it’s a live feed…no editor to save you! That’s some extra stress, maybe? I enjoyed the video, though, thanks for doing it! I hope it catches on as you move into the 3rd House profection of the forecast’s inception.

    Epic Mars opposite Pluto moments today (6/30, approaching exact) with Laura Michetti and others chiming in on Facebook about the NRA’s “recruitment ad” which looks more like a call to civil war (video available here: http://billmoyers.com/story/new-low-nra/#.WVZiJl5NYbF) and of course having to ponder the time Saturn-Pluto period 2018-2021 against that sort of backdrop. (And how about that Mars Rx in Aries happening late 2020, which squares the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction of that year? I am sure that was echoing from the future in our discussions today.)

    Striking Mars-Pluto correlation from last weekend as well: It was surely no coincidence that I was talking with a friend about the upcoming (Jupiter)-Saturn-Pluto alignment and an idea that has been coming through me to create a localized truth and reconciliation process. My friend was reminded of marital arts in what I was saying about making a good container for that kind of heavy, unintegrated and volatile energy (because I don’t want to place an institution between victims and perpetrators, but make it somehow more personal level, closer to the restorative justice model which issues out of indigenous reconciliation and social healing processes). I told him I have long wanted to read The Art of War written by Sun Tzu. On a slightly different note, he recommended a key Buddhist text to me, which I then went to the fabled Berkeley bookshop called Moe’s to find (great used Tibetan Buddhism section). I always check the astrology category of every bookstore…and what did I find misfiled there? In astrology? The Art of War. Seriously, you know I bought it and will be reading it – The Art of War, Summer 2017 Mars-all-up-in-our-business reading at its finest.

    And there…I think I have the best (for me) use of the July 28th election. As mentioned elsewhere, the Mars-Saturn conjunction of that electional chart is conjoining my natal Mars and squaring my natal Uranus, whilst transiting Saturn also opposes my natal Mars. Given the classic martial arts signature of Mars-Saturn, and the emphasis on 11th House matters of the electional chart, I could begin reading The Art of War with a view to incorporating its insight into my cultural transformation project(s). Uranus gets a nicer tip towards a revolutionary application, or a new (?) iteration of “the martial arts.” And then of course, there is always the unexpected and the out of our hands…that never seems to waver for me for a moment.

    Looking forward to hearing the August forecast already….eep!
