Last Quarter Moon in Aries
On July 9th, the moon will move to the sign of Aries during its last quarter phase. This will slow us down somewhat as we bask in the glow of our accomplishments. Aries is a fiery energy, but during a last quarter moon cycle, its energy is softened. Instead of revving up your engine, you will most likely be reviewing your projects and intentions.
You will gain greater insight and understand the process even better. And this time will be especially sobering since Neptune is in retrograde motion. It may be necessary to make a few adjustments to your plans or goals as you move forward.
With so much supportive energy during this time, you will figure out what to do. Many will feel the need to let go of things that no longer serve them. And Aries’s energy will give them the courage to do just that. During this phase, you will probably start making plans to initiate any changes that need to be made.
Pallas in Virgo
Goddess Pallas will visit Virgo on July 10th, bringing us the wisdom we need for healing. Both Pallas and Virgo are practical energies focused on the beneficial use of our intellectual capacities. In this case, we will glean the knowledge we need to heal our heart and head spaces. Likewise, we will focus on reconnecting our intellectual and intuitive faculties. This energy is necessary for restoring our creative energies after trauma or abuse.
Mars in Virgo
Starting July 10, 2023, Mars will enter the sign of Virgo, giving us the energy to get organized. You might do some decluttering in your home or office. Mars is enterprising and loves to initiate new things. This energy gives us the motivation to get going, and Virgo provides us with insight and intellectual capacity to find our way. Virgo likewise helps us organize our mental and physical spaces for maximum efficiency.
So, you may also feel more health-conscious during this time. As such, your focus could be on deep cleansing your holistic being. This is especially the case with Pallas entering Virgo on the same day. You may be inspired to start a new exercise routine, go vegan, or otherwise engage in ways to improve your well-being. Virgo rules the digestive tract, so you will likely be very in tune with your eating habits.
Mercury in Leo

And we will be focused on enjoyment and pleasure with those dear to our hearts. Mercury rules communication and intellectual capacity, and in Leo, this energy is bold, creative, and playful.
