METAL SHEEP MONTH July 2 -30 2019

July 2 2019 is a new Moon eclipse in Cancer. Water sign Cancer rules the 4th house of family, home, and the importance of nurturing self and others. This new Moon begins the month of the Metal Sheep that’s naturally fortunate in a Pig year.

Sheep is a gentle and artistic soul. The element Metal represents the clean, pristine environment in feng shui. Time to pare down, give away, and refine during Sheep month. 

There are two eclipses in July: this new Moon solar eclipse, and on July 11 a full Moon lunar eclipse. Eclipses can bring insights and emotional energy. Contact me for your tarot, astrology, or feng shui consultation during eclipse month.



Mercury is retrograde for three weeks, three times a year. During this Sheep month, Mercury is retrograde in Fire sign Leo and Water sign Cancer.

July 7 – 18 Mercury is retrograde in Leo is when communication is direct. Just slow down if people become too demanding. Mercury conjuncts Mars, newly in Leo, that can bring disputes or reckless reactions but is softened by the influence of peacemaker Sheep.

July 19 – 31 Mercury is retrograde in Cancer when emotions come to the surface to communicate about home and family. Luck is strongest for Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Sheep, Horse, Pig, and Rabbit years.

Happy new Moon,
