Biz StarCast – July 2021 Edition

by Leslie Tagorda

Root to Rise

In Hawaii, my favorite Yoga Teacher Martin at Kula (Community) Yoga’s favorite phrase is “root to rise.” In Vinyasa, he’d remind you to plant your feet firmly into the ground as you extend your spine and crown towards the heavens. You can feel the energetic bond extending deep into the earth, your roots. As you connect with the universal energy of the heavens. Your body being the flxible channel between heaven and earth.

In July, you are practicing this sense of rootedness. Cultivating the energy of Cancer that creates emotional security, belonging and inclusivity, a bond strong yet flexible. This bond provides the unwavering inner security to stand up to the challenges of opposing forces that strengthen your creativity and tenacity to keep growing towards the stars.

We need this soft power and strength as a business owner, especially in July.

There are many opposing energies throughout July and there are a few bright spots too to bring passion into your work as you peel back the layers of deciding based on your own needs.

You don’t need to be afraid of so-called challenging energies if you understand that this is the creative tension that allows you to deepen your roots so you can creatively rise.

The biggest take-away this month will be to not judge experiences as good or bad.

We need all experiences to understand our boundaries, what we say no to, what we focus on and how we prioritize our own self care to prevent burn out

Self care for you, a business owner, is non negotiable. A necessity to restore your emotional and energetic cup. A full cup allows you to make decisions that have the biggest impact from a place of faith, which can sometimes feel scary, but are necessary. If your cup is empty, you will default to making decisions based on fear and lack. And that isn’t an aligned way to grow your business.

July is a potent month to prioritize your emotional well being, find your joy, sharpen your creativity, collect data, and harness your fire into passion that radiates through your purposeful work.

July’s Biz StarCast is asking you to get comfortable with making decisions, holding opposition and facing challenges.

It is your ability to hold opposing forces that allow you to grow as a successful and resourceful business owner.

This month we see:

  • Mercury enter Cancer (July 11)
  • Venus enter Virgo (July 21)
  • Sun enter Leo (July 22)
  • Mercury enter Leo (July 27)
  • Jupiter Rx re-enter Aquarius (July 28)
  • Mars enter Virgo (July 29)



  • New Moon in Cancer 18° (July 9)
  • Full Moon Aquarius 1° (July 23)

Continue Below…

How to use these cosmic energies:

  • These are the collective cosmic energies available to us all.
  • There is nothing to be fearful of. Get curious about what we need to learn.
  • For larger shifts, you’ll feel the energy a week leading up to and away from.

To personalize energies:

  • With conjunctions/meetings or lunar activations, look to the degree of the activation and find where that degree lives on your natal chart.
  • Your astrological house in which the degree occurs is where in your business or life more information is available for that cosmic shift.

First week of July

Put yourself first and stay calm

We start July with the 4Q Moon and a tense T-Square (a right angle triangle) in the sky today, something feels like it’s going to break. If we fight and resist this energy, emotions and frustrations can flare up. If we know how to weather this passing storm, we get to harness this potent energy to focus on our long term goals by assessing where we are currently at with our important projects.

Have patience and focus on your long goal

What boundaries do you need to maintain?

For about a week leading up to and away, you are being challenged to stand up for your authority. This doesn’t mean that you have to fight, but you are being asked to create a line in the sand so that you can remain committed to your impactful work. This line in the sand is a decision you need to make, will you commit? Or do you need to break that commitment? It’s ok to break a commitment if it no longer serves you. It’s time to decide on your long term goals and make them a priority.

If you have lots of fixed energy (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) you will feel this challenge to your deep knowing more intensely.

Relax as antidote to restlessness

What can you do today to prioritize yourself to stay calm?

With the Aries 4Q moon today, spend time with your anxiety coping tools and put your needs first. The energy of this day is heightened and more tense than usual. This tension builds up through the weekend with a release on Saturday. You may find yourself getting angry, if you do, express your boundaries. Or you may find yourself motivated, if you do, don’t start something new, assess what you have already done and what is working. Let go of stress.

Last quarter moon phases are for doing inner integration work in our lives and businesses. A time to reflect on what we now understand and assess how we want to continue. In your business the 4Q moon phase is perfect for reviewing analytics, examining progress, and surveying. There will be things you keep, things you let go, and things you modify based on what you now know.

The house that contains Aries 10° is where in your business you are meant to let go of stress and prioritize yourself.

Breakthrough from frustrations

What shake ups and breakthroughs are now happening to you?

Related to the events a few days earlier where you’ve been deciding on your long term commitments, you may be tested with some shake ups. Do not fear shake ups as these can be the breakthroughs you need that jump you to your intended path. Things may feel like they are “happening” to you. Resist the urge to blame and judge. As these experiences might be just what you need for your committed projects.

If you have lots of fixed energy near 13° (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) you will feel this challenge to your deep knowing more intensely.

Week of July 4 – 10

Be kind to yourself and others

For those of you in the States, happy Independence Day. The tension of the previous week is beginning to fade, you’ve gone through most of it. You need a bit of time to slow down, it’s still not a time to rush full speed ahead. You may feel a bit restricted with your money or resources, and while your thoughts and visions for the are moving quickly, you can’t quite capture the clarity of what needs to be communicated, just yet.

Want to feel productive this week? Practice self care – permission to nap, get a massage, turn off your notifications, say no to social gatherings, or eat that gf cupcake.


It’s a day where you are getting signals of your next big step yet there are people and resources that you now see clearly that are in the way of your big picture. Listen and decide today. Wait a few days to act on your decisions.

Mercury square Neptune Rx

12:39 AM Pacific | 3:39 AM Eastern

Inspired dreamlike thinking

What signals are you now receiving?

Communications are not exactly clear today, but they are visionary and meaningful. You may be getting messages in the forms of symbols, sounds, or other intangible means. Pay attention to these symbols, they are showing you the way. If you are sending communications or doing a lot of transactions, be hyper vigilant to triple check details. Or, instead of a long email, send a song lyric or haiku to get your point across.

If you have lots of Mutable energy (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) you will feel this dreamlike state more.

Discomfort moves quickly

What constraints in resources and partnerships do you need to cut?

For a few days around this exact meeting, people may show their true colors and investments may come to a critical deciding point. What people and money issues are making you feel trapped? This feeling may come as a surprise to you. Yet, you need to decide now to say goodbye to someone, maybe a business collaborator or client? Or you have to let go of an investment, maybe stopping a subscription or canceling a contract that isn’t of value for you. The space you create by saying goodbye will allow you to focus on the things that matter. Make the decision today and wait for a few days to inform the people you want to let go.

If you have lots of Fixed energy (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) you will feel this need to make a cut.

Mercury leaves shadow

Clear thoughts ahead

What new truths and beliefs will you now communicate?

Mercury Retrograde ended a few weeks ago and now Mercury has crossed the point in the sky where it retraced its steps – out of the shadow zone. Mercury is now moving forward with your new thoughts and truths that you have recovered during the retrograde cycle. You could start to move ahead with your new communications plans or projects, yet Neptune is still adding a bit of unfocus, potentially making any important communications less than clear. If you can wait till after the New Moon to make any important announcements, you’ll be better off.

Look to your chart from Gemini 16° – Gemini 24°, the area of your chart highlighted by this past Mercury Rx. If you have planets or angles in this area, those energies have a new truth that want to be given a voice.

What to find your brand voice? Here’s a fun micro training.

Unexpected revelations

What social or money surprises come to you now?

If you did your work and decided what/who to let go in order to focus on the things that matter, then you could be in for a lucky breakthrough. Notice aligned people or resources that cross your path. These aligned people or resources may not be what you expected, but with this kind of energy, say yes to the unexpected and don’t judge an experience as bad – as it might be the silver lining you need.

If you have lots of Fixed energy (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) you will feel this a bit more intensely.

Today I plant the seeds to nurture self care, safe spaces and soft power in my business

Emotional security is the foundation to your achievement and success. If your emotional center is not rooted, there is nothing you can care for or nurture in your life or business in a meaningful way.

Others may see you as successful, but you don’t feel it.

Or you chase success without creating your safe inner landscape.

This goes for your customers too.

In creating safe spaces for them, their success and results are bound to happen.

True healing and success can only happen in these safe spaces.

This safe space is created with Cancer energy.

Creating safe spaces doesn’t take muscle power, it takes soft power.

Cancer, a water sign, is the ultimate soft power. Nothing is softer than water but there is nothing that can withstand it.

What does soft power look and feel like for you? How can you use this in your business to move mountains?

Decide today what emotional security and safe spaces look like and do for you in your business. In your loving and soft-powered terms.

Week of July 11 – 17

Feelings lighten

It’s this week you feel like you can FINALLY take some meaningful action forward. It’s been a few months since you’ve felt this energized and optimistic. Your thoughts and emotions are clear and your ability to attract aligns with your ability to motivate. Now you have the opportunity, desire and motivation to share your new wisdom with the world.

If you are going to launch something this month, this would be your week.


Mercury enters Cancer

1:35 PM Pacific | 4:35 PM Eastern

Communicate your feelings

How can you authentically express your emotions in a powerful way?

For only 2 weeks Mercury is full speed ahead and in the sensitive sign of Cancer through July 27. While in Cancer, Mercury is able to get clear on your deepest needs for emotional security and communicate them in meaningful ways. It’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve. In your business, it’s this authentic ability to say how you feel that connects you with those you are meant to serve. Use the next few weeks to clarify your messaging around what success feels like to you. Embody this feeling so that you can use your voice to gain visibility – securely.

If you have planets or angles in Cancer, your ability to communicate your feelings in these areas will be crystal clear.


Mercury trine Jupiter Rx

12:45 PM Pacific | 3:45 PM Eastern

Your sensitive words expand possibilities

What opportunity to communicate your purpose will you harness to inspire?

A great day to start an inspirational communication campaign or send a powerful message. You’re feeling confident, your creativity is aligned with your heart and your loving message inspires others. Harness this energy to send your big, heart-felt message.

If you have planets or angles in Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) these will be emotionally supportive.

One of the most exciting and lucky days of the year – do something passionate!

Passionate give and take

What great affection will you share to attract what you desire?

Attraction at its highest level is an energy so powerful. The perfect combination of appeal, desire, charm and fascination. In Leo, the melding of this attraction is from this place of creativity and passion. Where creation is so pleasurable. In the early hours of the morning you may feel a little cool in mood, but by the afternoon you will heat up. Your creativity is high and your ability to communicate is expansive. Do something that lights you up or you need a dose of energetic attraction.

Look to your natal chart to find Leo 19°. The house that contains this point is where in your business you have the most access to this attraction energy. If you have planets or angles near Leo 19° these will add to your attraction. If you have planets or angles near other Fire signs (Aries, Sagittarius) 19° they will add support to your attraction. If you have planets or angles near other Fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius) they will add creative fuel to your fire!

Tune into your inspiration and generosity

What can you create that you can pass forward?

There is an energy of connection to superconsciousness or your intuition for a day up to and away from this exact meeting point. Your creative force no matter what you do, seems to pour through you from beyond. Tune into this energy and use it for good. This can be highly transformational and powerful so use this good for yourself and for others. Pass it forward. Your good deed may be rewarded.

If you have planets or angles in late degrees of Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) these will support your creativity and good deeds.

Sun Cancer 23° trine Neptune Rx 23°


A day to take transformative action. Choose to take action or choices will be made for you.

2Q Moon Libra 25°

3:11 AM Pacific | 6:11 AM Eastern

Act and connect

Who will you connect with to activate your intention?

With the moon at the 2Q phase and gaining light, it is time to initiate and take action on your goals and New Moon intentions. No more planning, no more thinking. Time to act. In Libra, action is through connecting with others, be it your collaborators, partners or ideal customers. Your people are waiting to help you somehow if you take action. Maybe you can connect people together through an introduction, or make an ask to a collaborator to get an introduction. Who are you here to help? Who is here to help you? Make that connection today for your business.

Especially activating for Cardinal Signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn).

Especially supportive for Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

3:46 PM Pacific | 6:46 PM Eastern

Illuminating your power to transform

What can you create today that transforms deep emotional security?

There is something you are being asked to create in your business to help distill how you need to create security. The urge for self transformation is strong. This ability to transform your sense of security has a ripple effect, something that your people sense, and an experience you can share with them in the future. Trust your intuition as to what to create. Your power and possibility is limitless. You now recognize this power.

Week of July 18 – 24

Practice balance

A week where you will be challenged to balance heart vs mind and discernment vs impulse. You’ll want to make decisions based on facts and data even though your heart wants to go all in. Tap into your inner wisdom to help you clarify what you really want and your heart’s wisdom to help you decide on your next action. Your power ultimately comes from the courage and trust you place in yourself. You will need to decide this week what needs courage and trust and to let go of the blocks that prevent you from leading with your heart.


Venus enters Virgo

5:37 PM Pacific | 8:37 PM Eastern

Connecting through wholeness

What evidence do you now have that unites?

Now through August 15 Venus, our ability to connect and attract will be gliding through the sign of Virgo. In Virgo, Venus’s attraction power comes from connecting all the dots and details, the simple pleasures of good work done and clean living. While in Virgo you are more discerning when it comes to your social interactions and how you spend your valuable money. You desire evidence that your time and resources will be well spent. If you are looking to invest, invest in things and experiences that will help you get more organized, effective and healthy.

If you have planets or angles in Virgo, over the next few weeks look for lucky streaks as Venus shares her glow and attraction on your natal planets.

5:45 AM Pacific | 8:45 AM Eastern

Discernment vs impulse

What will you allow your heart to choose?

While normally lovely planets of luck and abundance, there is a challenge at play. A decision that needs to be made. Your heart wants to go all in but your mind is over analyzing all the ways things might not go as planned. You must make a choice. Choose hope over fear. Your choice will be expansive, be intentional.

Season of confident creative vibrancy

How will you add glow to your work?

It’s time to lead with your heart in Leo season. Leo is all about creativity, confidence, courage and passion. If you aren’t working in your business with bliss, then you’re not making the kind of impact you are meant to. This doesn’t have to be about pride. This is purely about planting the energy of joy and vibrancy in all that you do. Others can sense when you are dragging your feet or when you have no passion. Alternatively, when they DO sense your passion and shine, you and your work is irresistible! What energy are you planting in your work? Let it be confidence and joy.

Happy Solar Return to you bold Leo Luminaries!


Full Moon Aquarius 1°

7:37 PM Pacific | 10:37 PM Eastern

Innovative Creativity is now illuminated

What feeling of otherness will you release to let in your brilliant creative uniqueness?

You are now faced with an emotional understanding of the blocks that have kept your creative brilliance from shining brightly. You can fully see how what you thought were your differences, are actually your unique gifts that you are meant to radiate instead of hide. Forgive yourself for not allowing yourself to belong and be different. It’s a journey you are meant to take to appreciate your one-of-a-kind creativity. Remember, YOU are a creative being, even if you love crunching numbers or swear you don’t have a creative bone. Let go of that idea to let in your brilliance so you can confidently shine.


Mercury trine Neptune Rx

9:35 AM Pacific | 12:35 PM Eastern

Intuitive understanding

What emotional understanding do you now have in your work?

This new understanding is deeper than awareness, it’s acceptance. And it has finally presented itself to you after you have searched for so long. This acceptance is transformational wisdom. You are here to evolve. You are here to grow. You now have a subtle, yet profound understanding. Use this opportunity of acceptance and apply it in your business. Notice your growth.

Week of July 25 – 31

Channel impulsiveness into creativity

There are three planetary shifts happening in a span of three short days this week. Quite the shock to our collective system. This much change in such a short span may feel rash and unsettled. Be aware of impulsiveness. You can harness this wild energy into cultural, expressive or artistic interests as a constructive way to channel this power. This isn’t the week to launch or commit to anything long term. Instead use this energy to create, gather deep insights and restore.


Mercury opposite Pluto Rx

1:15 PM Pacific | 4:15 PM Eastern

Speak heart to empower

What powerful insight do you need to share now?

For a fleeting day you gain deep emotional perception. This focused knowledge allows you to gain more than information, but also the emotional energy of this information. You are able to speak to the things that sometimes are hidden out of your reach. This is a good time to share a deep message in writing or speaking. Tough and taboo conversations can be had now with kindness and understanding. You can empower others with your powerful insights on topics that are hard to discuss if you choose.

6:12 PM Pacific | 9:12 PM Eastern

Confident communication

What fun can you have with your messaging?

From now through August 11, Mercury spends its time in courageous Leo.
Leo communications take on an air of know-it-allness. Keep in mind to engage as well as listen from your heart for your communications to feel heartfelt. Your mind is very good at expressing itself in colorful, vibrant ways. This is a great time to get creative writing projects done or add some fun to your communications. Write copy for your next launch or website. Record a few podcast episodes. Dress up for your reels. You are sure to have fun expressing yourself.


Jupiter Rx re-enters Aquarius

5:43 AM Pacific | 8:43 AM Eastern

Re-examine your values and beliefs for the future

What inner seeking will allow you to gain outer opportunities?

In Jupiter’s retrograde motion, this social energy steps back into Aquarius. In general, Jupiters reverse motion is felt on a subtle collective level so you might not even notice this energy. During Jupiter Rx, the expansiveness of Jupiter is focused inward, reconnecting and expanding your inner beliefs while challenging normal societal beliefs. There is nothing to do with this shift except notice what personal beliefs are now expanding. Jupiter appears to go backwards through October 17 tracing back to Aquarius 22°.

If you have planets or angles in Aquarius in late degrees of Aquarius (29° – 22°), you will feel Jupiter expanding your natal energies for this second pass bringing you deeper meaning and beliefs that will support your overall potential. You get this opportunity every 12 years. If this is you, get curious with what evolution you experienced about 12 years ago and see how it is related to your current experiences. Do know after October as Jupiter moves forward and crosses these degrees again you will get a third expansive wash of Jupiter on your natal energies. Have fun with your new expansive beliefs!


A rash and impulsive day. Take heed.

Mars opposite Jupiter Rx

8:50 AM Pacific | 11:50 AM Eastern

Better to be careful

What energetic fervor do you need to reign in?

A good thing about today is that you may have an abundance of energy. Your drive to get things done is at an all high. On the other hand, the build up of energy may not have an outlet, making it feel stuck giving you a feeling of wanting to explode. You could be feeling uber confident with the likelihood of taking careless risks. Better yet, spend today tackling a creative project so you can use this energy in a productive way.

Mars Leo 29° opposite Jupiter Rx Aquarius 29°

1:32 PM Pacific | 4:32 PM Eastern

Motivate with organization

What data-driven aspects of your business can you achieve?

Now through September 14, Mars is motivated to analyze and organize. Use this season to motivate over gathering data, reviewing your metrics, getting things organized and making evidence-based decisions. If you’ve been putting off reviewing your books or looking at your website traffic, this is a great time to come face to face with the data. Don’t avoid data, data doesn’t lie and can give you the facts on decisions that will make your business more efficient (and profitable). Be aware that this vigilance of Mars in Virgo can make you overthink, over work, and over analyze. When you begin to feel this tendency, take care of your body first. Calm your system and maintain good health to prevent your mind from going on overdrive.

If you have planets or angles in Virgo, Mars will energize your natal planets giving you extra oomph to pay attention to the details and work effectively.


4Q Moon Taurus 8°33′

6:16 AM Pacific | 9:19 AM Eastern

Relax and get comfortable

What can you do today to feel peaceful and prosperous?

With the Taurus 4Q moon today, stop pushing and rushing through things to stop to smell the roses. You may feel your creativity and ability to be confident hitting some limits and the worst thing is to keep pushing. Give yourself a break and luxuriate. It is by finding peace in yourself and connecting to your body by pampering it that you can feel the spaciousness that will wash away any limitations and boundaries.

You may find yourself feeling stuck in a no win situation, if so, get curious about if your limitations are self-imposed or a result of decisions you’ve made. That way you can change your course. If you’re feeling energized and creative, get curious with what is sparking your creativity so you can replicate that energy again in the future.

Last quarter moon phases are for doing inner integration work in our lives and businesses. A time to reflect on what we now understand and assess how we want to continue. In your business the 4Q moon phase is perfect for reviewing analytics, examining progress, and surveying. There will be things you keep, things you let go, and things you modify based on what you now know.
