Horoscope--Minor planet Chiron goes retrograde
Mars. (File)

This week we see the minor planet Chiron going retrograde, the sun opposite Pluto and Venus entering Virgo.

Thursday, July 15: Chiron is the wounded healer, and Chiron transits always trigger a desire to heal what has been broken, to integrate what has been separated. When Chiron is direct, we look for healing outside. We go to the doctor, the spiritual guru, the coach. When Chiron goes retrograde, we look for answers inside. We become our own medicine. July 15, 1606, was the day Rembrandt was born in Holland. His paintings are regarded as the best of all time.

Friday, July 16: Venus in loving Leo gets a bump from dreamy Neptune, which can boost all relationships, usually in mysterious ways. It was July 16, 2017, that film director George Romero passed into spirit. His film "Night of the Living Dead" began the hugely popular genre of zombie films.

Saturday, July 17: The sun is our personal identity. Pluto is the power of nature. When the two oppose each other, there is a conflict that requires integration. On one hand, we want to affirm our identity (sun). But being human means there are always forces outside of our control (Pluto) that we need to deal with. The solution? Learning to let go of ego concerns while at the same time building inner strength and resilience. Yes, we can change our circumstances, yes, we are not always at the mercy of fate, but the secret is acting from our higher self, not from ego. The 21st Olympic Summer Games opened in Montreal on July 17, 1976.

Sunday, July 18: This is the most stressful day of the month. The best way to beat the challenges today is with new ideas and flexibility. Doing the same old is no longer working, so a change is gonna come. Pick it, rather than having it foisted upon you. Nadia Comaneci scored the first perfect 10 in gymnastics, at the Montreal Olympics on July 18, 1976.

Monday, July 19: A stubborn moon in Scorpio is not in a giving mood this morning. Love wants to heal old wounds today. So, bring on the love! On July 19, 1848, the first U.S. women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, N.Y. Regular events regarding women's rights are held at Seneca Falls even now.

Tuesday, July 20: Clever, forward-thinking surprises today have mostly to do with home and family, with security and nurturing. July 20, 1969, was a Sunday. In the late afternoon, millions of earthlings watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin land on the surface of the moon. Armstrong is also remembered for his famous words: “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Wednesday, July 21: Today, Venus enters Virgo, a practical Earth sign. Virgo is also a mutable sign. Mutable signs move things around. Venus in Virgo has the unique ability to “use” her feelings to get stuff done. In the coming weeks, Venus in Virgo will teach us how to be more pragmatic and down to earth with our feelings. Channel feelings to do something useful. Marshall McLuhan was born on July 21, 1911, in Edmonton. His contribution to theories of mass communication forever changed the conversation about how radio, television and now, the internet, work.

Next week we see the start of Leo 2021, a full moon in Aquarius and more.
