Astral Reflections:

By Astrologer:Diana Warwick






The following predictions are done through my approach to astrology which is quite different from Tim’s. While many modern astrologers follow a psychological approach to astrology, mine is entirely different. It is my feeling that astrology is a predictive, a scientific/art. And while we cannot actually predict the future, what astrology can do, allows me to say more than I know. Tim is unique among modern western astrologers insofar as he actually ‘predicts”. as a gifted astrologer, he is unique. I am sure the readers of this column and myself send him best wishes and a speedy recovery. We look forward to his return to these interesting pages which he has produced/predicted for over 30 years


This July 2014 is a busy month astrologically speaking. We see a number of planets moving signs and this is indicative of major changes for all signs.The status quo is about to get shaken up a bit!


Mercury, our planet of communication, interpretation, the ruler of Gemini and Virgo moves into Cancer on July 14th, 2014. Venus, our planet of pleasure, the arts,dance, love, jewelery, cosmetic and significator of  women is the ruler of Libra and Taurus and exalted in Pisces. Venus moves into Cancer on July 19 ,2014. Mars the planet of war, argument,aggression, blood sharp instruments, surgeons and young men rules Aries,Scorpio and is exalted in Capricorn. Mars moves into one of its rulers, Scorpio on July 27, 2014. On July 17th 2014 Jupiter moves into Leo. And Finally Saturn remains in Scorpio has been retrograde( meaning moving backwards as seen from Earth) goes direct in motion on July 21, 2014. You will see these movements affect us all. And for the most part, many humans while they decry the status quo, when it comes to change, there is a hesitation, a reluctance as it requires a new approach, a new way of dealing with matters that are of concern to us.Change requires acceptance, change requires we let go of what we knew to be our reality and to embrace something new.


So here is the week ahead and may our changes bring us wisdom.


Luck Forecast for Cancer 2014/2015:

July 17 to August 12 2015

 Cancer has had a stellar year,, as long as your birth day didn’t fall between July 5 th and 14th of July. I see Uranus as a “malefic ‘ influence rather than wonderful planet bestowing brilliance or benevolent life experiences. In predictive or traditional astrology, Uranus is seen as shocking, suddenly violent and disruptive energy but as we have learned over the ages to every Yin there is a Yang, I may have to ammend my thinking!

But as far as Cancer’s luck for this year,  the words “personal abundance” spring to mind especially if you are Cancer rising. However, depending on where Cancer sits in your natal horoscope this transit of Jupiter through Leo will enhance your opportunity for  abundance, so strike while the iron is hot

Jupiter is the exalted ruler of Cancer, therefore as a Cancer what Jupiter is up to is always of great importance to you personally. Jupiter moves into Leo on July 17th,2014 remaining there until August 12, 2015. . And like the story of Ali Baba in the Arabian Nights, it will  open up a cave glistening with gold, jewels and wealth both literally and metaphorically.  Leo, the sign of all things regal and for those of you lucky enough to have a Leo in your life, you know of what I speak. Leo loves things on a grand scale. Jupiter the planet of limitless expansion is about to enter the sign of wondrous grandiosity. Opulence, abundance, over the top are not unfamiliar phrases associated with Leo and naturally Jupiter will expand this ethos greatly. Personal finances, liquid assets flourish for most Cancers from July 17th, 2014 to August 12, 2015.

Jupiter passing through Cancer’s solar house of money, personal possessions, liquid assets augers opportunity for  personal wealth and prosperity . It won’t just fall in your lap and will require work in the form of your skills, daily routine, small pets and health issues.People you employ, can also embellish your bottom line. You will see increased results from publishing, foreign travels and foreigners. University students, professors or those employed in higher learning will see prosperity, advancement. perhaps that long awaited bursary finally gets approved  . Expansion, growth are the key words attributed to Jupiter’s’ transit through Leo. And those with spiritual ambitions will experience marked enlightenment or clarity in their meditations.

Jupiter is a triplicity ruler of Aries. Aries rules Cancer’s 10th house of profession, public image and those in positions of authority who will have an impact on your life.Promotions, moving up the ladder of success will all be presented to you over the next 12 month period.As a result,  your personal assets will go up. Your public persona will be  enhanced and under the spotlight as Jupiter the planet of increase, expansion and exuberance runs its transit through your professional zone. As career and your job sector are well aspected, ask the boss for a raise or a new position during the above cited dates. Success is sure to follow.

For Cancers born between June 25 to July 9 there will be an increased chance of volatility in your luck forecast. Mars ingresses into Scorpio, July 27,2014, while in a good aspect to Cancer, and likely to mitigate Mars’s natural inclination to cause “war”….Mars’ aggressive, debating, argumentative nature is enhanced owing to the kind of aspect it makes to Jupiter. Jupiter in Leo will not be as beneficent and produce problems in your speculative ventures and disagreements with children, inheritance and money from real estate. The arguments stem from your public persona, authorities, people in positions of authority, your career.

And for Cancers born between between July 7 th to July 12th, conditions or events  in  your career, with those in positions of authority, your public persona contain elements of an explosive, combative and argumentative nature. Lie low for the time being until the stars are aligned in a better configuration and the dust settles.
