Interesting JULY Astro forecast by Henry Seltzer from ASTROGRAPH ...

A July of Transformation and Spiritually Looking Within 

The astrology of July features two eclipses, as well as the retrogrades of Mars and Mercury, along with the planetary energies of Venus, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Eris. This is a big month, to say the least. The mid month Cancer New Moon and Solar Eclipse, taking place on July 12th, is exactly opposite Pluto, bringing this transformationally oriented planetary archetype that has been featured in recent lunations even further into prominence. We are all in the soup now, and it is the soup of change. Like the stone soup of legend, this is more a matter of what you bring to the situation than what comes at you. You are being encouraged on the part of the universe to let go of blocks and barriers to growth and transformation, to open to deep intuition, very active now, and to find your most sincere set of values that you might aspire to, your actual bottom line intentions for this lifetime. When you act strictly from these, you proceed with the spiritual evolution that is your birthright.  Then, late in the month, another eclipse, this time a Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon, taking place on July 27th, highlights many planets including a newly retrograde Mercury, plus Saturn, and Uranus, and represents an important moment in the Mars retrograde as well. After sunset on this day, once the sky is dark, this happens to be the second of two nights when Mars shines most brightly because opposite the Sun, with the earth lodged directly between them. This entire summer has Mars in retrograde so that ordinary activities are suspended in favor of inner contemplation. We leave off from the “getting and spending” as Wordsworth puts it in his poem entitled “The World is Too Much With Us,” and take up the soul task of searching out what it is that we have inside us, to make good on, as we intimately re-engage with our lives...
