Setting Free Our Talents and Creative Energy Stephanie Clement

One of the hardest things about astrology is to get the bits and pieces of the puzzle to fit together. One approach is to identify patterns of aspects, or relationships, among planets. This month the patterns are precise—something that doesn't always happen. Each week we find shapes that, in themselves, help us to understand the astrological relationships.

We also have the final eclipse in a series of three. Having two solar eclipses within a month of each other only occurs about every eighteen or nineteen years. This series sets the tone for the next several months, even though the solar eclipses were in far Northern and Southern latitudes and therefore not visible to most of you readers. eclipses, although darkening either the Sun or Moon, also illuminate our lives by allowing us to see past ordinary light and into the larger light of the universe.

An Action-Packed First Nine Days of July

The solar eclipse on July 1 is part of a grand square configuration that also includes Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus. In the cardinal signs—Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn—this pattern of aspects suggests the dynamic forces leading into the near future.
