In episode 162 of the podcast astrologers Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock join the show to talk about the astrological forecast for July of 2018.
Our main focus this month is a tense lunar eclipse that occurs towards the end of the month in Aquarius, which is closely conjunct Mars and square Uranus.
We also discuss a Mercury retrograde in Leo, a partial solar eclipse in Cancer, and Jupiter stationing direct in Scorpio.
At the top of the show Chris discusses the possibility of writing a Sun-sign column, and some of the pros and cons that go along with that.
Jo Gleason recently wrote a thread on twitter saying that every astrologer should write horoscopes at some point in their life.
This forecast episode of the podcast is available in both audio and video formats, and you can find links to both below.
