girl meditating, July 7 vibration, going withinBlast off to uncharted territories,

and discover new things about yourself!

It is the key to surfing the intense energy we’ve been dealing with all year!

July moves us from the 6 vibration of love -- which we spent the month of June in -- to the 7 vibration.

And by the way, the 7 vibration is also the energy in play for all of 2014.

So yes, you guessed it,

expect July to up the ante in dealing with the head vs. heart aspects

of the 7 vibration.

Get out of your head!

Yeah, not so easy, I know.

Yet this month, and all year, you are being asked to trust your inner guidance system.

Learn to discern the difference between a legit message (aka divine guidance, intuitive hit, gut feeling) and your mind telling you what to do.

Your mind is indeed a beautiful thing.

It can however weave a web of stories that keep you stuck and playing small.

So if you are limiting your life through fear, punishing yourself, beating yourself up, delivering harsh or unkind words … you can be sure that this is not your higher guidance speaking to you.

Really! Scouts honor. Trust me on this.

Higher guidance is usually gentle, soft-spoken and coming from a place of love.

  • It may warn you. It may present different perspectives on what you think is going on.
  • It may give you some insights.
  • It may present possibilities and hope.
  • And it lets you know whether something is a yes or no for you.

Sometimes it does take a bit of a tough love approach.

But it doesn’t do name calling, belittling or anything else that diminishes your spirit and self-esteem.

That is the realm of your ego-mind.

July’s 7 vibration is also about...

Wisdom, Trust, Introspection, Openness, Intellect, Intuition, Exploration, Mastery, and Spiritual Growth.

The shadow side of the 7 is moody, critical, argumentative, aloof, withdrawn and can be a tad manipulative.

So be aware if any of these party-poopers start pulling you in, so you can diffuse it before you get sucked into drama.

Mind Games

The 7 vibration is logical and introspective.

7 wants to know why… what are the reasons behind every... little... thing.

7 can be stubborn, and say:

"If I don’t know why something is happening, then…

I won’t change it

or let it go

or give it up

until I figure it all out."

Chances are that is an impossible task, my friends.

The 7 will also turn things over and over and over and over… ruminating on a though or an idea.

While this can lead to amazing breakthroughs, analyzing something from every possible perspective...

it can also be used to keep you in and endless loop, stuck in worry mode or compelled to gather and accumulate even more information.

And when this aspect of the 7 vibration is taken to the extreme…

Well, can you say analysis paralysis?!


There is a “head trip” that I can recommend this month…


The Journey Within

This is also a great month to go within… perhaps go on a retreat, even if it is just a day in nature, it will be hugely beneficial for you.

The energy is working with you this month to do some serious inner work

and start shifting outdated programming.

One of the reasons why it is such a great month for gaining insights is because the 7 vibration wants to get to the bottom of things and truly understand why.

scrolls with the mystery of me on itWhat better way to use this wonderful energy than to dig deeper into the mystery of you…

what makes you tick.

What patterns of behavior or beliefs might you uncover that can be dissolved once you are aware of them, so they no longer hold you back from being a more potent expression of who you truly are.

Blast off to uncharted territories,

and discover new things about yourself,

others and the universe in which you live.

Go for it!


Spiritual Retreat

Spiritual practices and exploring the unknown are also strong in the 7 vibration. 

If you don’t have a spiritual practice, consider adding something this month and see how it feels.

If you do have a spiritual practice, how can you take it even deeper?

Read an inspirational book.

Take a workshop or class.

Commune with the Divine in nature.

For me, I am totally replenished and rejuvenated at the ocean.

I may be an air sign (Libra, in case you were wondering), but it is water that truly feeds my spirit.

Although, to be honest, being anywhere in nature feeds my spirit… even my own back yard.

And yes, this water baby does indeed have a pool in her backyard!smiley

If the occult or metaphysics or the mysterious universe in all its amazing variety interests you, this is a great month to go exploring there as well. UFOs anyone?

Your intuition might be heightened this month.

Learn to trust it.

And if you aren’t used to following your intuition, this is a great month to really take it seriously…

practice receiving your messages and get clearer on just how you do receive them.

Is it a knowingness, a feeling, do you see visions or hear messages?

Pay attention to all the different ways messages come to you: songs, symbols, words in a book, etc.


Celebration Time!Celebrate & fireworks

There’s more to celebrate in July than Independence Day on the 4th (for those in the US),

Mercury goes direct on July 1st after tinkering with technology and communications since the beginning of June.


Give it a few days to settle in after it goes direct before starting anything new!


Deep Waters

For the first 3 weeks of July we are in the water sign of Cancer, so the deeper, inner work you might want to explore will likely be centered around

  • Your emotions
  • Your family
  • Your friends (past and present)
  • Your relationships (across the board)
  • Nurturing and nourishing (others, yourself)

And for those of you who consistently rescue, fix or over-give, you may find yourself questioning why you feel like nurturing others at a cost to yourself.

The water element will also help you with bringing in more of the intuitive influences of the 7 vibration.


Igniting Passion (and maybe some anger)

On the 23rd of July we move from the element of water to the element of fire when Leo comes on the stage.

We’ll deal with Leo energy all of August as well (even when Leo gives way to Virgo in August, the 8 vibration of August is so very Leo-like!).

So the last week of July expect more passion and ego working with the 7 vibration.

You might want to know why things are the way they are from a material perspective (work, career, home, money, recognition, respect, power).

Plus the fire element fuels thoughts, so you might be pulled into your head space more, needing to logically figure it out or rationalize why you are doing something.


Blast off into uncharted territoriesBottom Line

This month, go on the journey within.

Practice trusting yourself.

Experiment with using an evidence journal to see how accurate your intuition is so you can get you beautiful brain and glorious spirit working together hand-in-hand.



Some questions to ask or journal about this month:

  • Where are you out of balance between listening to your head and heart?
  • How do you receive your messages?
  • How can you practice improving your intuition?
  • What spiritual practices can you introduce or commit to doing more consistently?
  • What would you like to explore or understand better?
  • What pattern or belief would you like to dissolve?
  • What would you like to learn?
  • Where are you being too much of a lone wolf?
  • How can you spend quiet time in nature?
  • Where are you being shy or aloof?
  • How can you be more self-reflective and go deeper in your inner work?
  • What would you like to spend time contemplating?
  • How can you be more inventive?
  • What wisdom would you like to share?


May you have a wonderful month filled with wisdom, insights, and love.
