Welcome to July

Formerly called Quintilus, the fifth month in the early Roman calendar, the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar named July after himself. It became the seventh month in the new Julian calendar Caesar created in 46BC, helped by Sosignes, the Alexandrian astronomer and philosopher. Julius Caesar therefore first made July’s association with power and high ambitions when he linked the Emperors with the Father God Jupiter.

July has continued this association with acquiring power, achieving ambitions of any kind, leadership, maintaining high principles that are worth fighting for, acquiring traditional knowledge,  seeking justice, especially where the odds are stacked against you, aiming for fame by entering talent shows, reality television series, or joining a drama group, orchestra  group or choir just for pleasure, for the success of all creative ventures, applying for promotion or a pay rise, marriage proposals local  adventures and stay-cations if travel is restricted, for increasing prosperity through developing talents and for increased potency especially where there are fertility issues.

Many of us have lost our power in the previous months not just to travel but to live our own way. But in July we can begin to reach out again to golden days ahead, more precious because of the losses and hardships.

The pursuit of power too now can become very different, linked with freedom to enjoy times with friends and family and appreciate beauty in the natural world we can still revive.

We have learned during the pandemic the best use of power  is not a 24/7 blinkered  solitary scramble for the top, but seeking a quality of life only fully valued when taken away. We can  regain abundance, while striving to make a difference to others beyond  the bubbles in which we have been confined. We can use our power also to try to tackle issues the pandemic highlighted, inequality, hungry children, families in substandard accommodation in high rise buildings, dire loneliness of older people who saw no-one from one week to another; all of these existed before the pandemic, but as life returns they cannot be consigned to the shadows of indifference,

The colour of the month is gold, its crystals, orange carnelian, clear crystal quartz and golden topaz. Its fragrances are frankincense, copal and orange.

The angel of July is the golden Verchiel, the Joy Bringer and a Wish angel, who tells us July is the best month for overcoming financial losses or setbacks and winning against negative people and bullies through personal effort and determination while maintaining your own high ethics. However, avoid being tempted to overspend or over- emphasize your qualifications and expertise, over – indulging in food or alcohol or starting an affair you may regret by next month

May your July be golden in every way and may all your wishes come true as we begin to move once more into the light.
