Please describe the spiritual climate affecting human beings in July 2016.
ANSWER: Devil reversed
The spiritual climate in July is a mixed bag of decay and growth, honor and depravity. Structures in place for eons will prove their obsolescence.
Despite appearances and societal insistence, the corrosion is not moralistic. The systems imploding and crumbling are more related to the construction of an edifice, an old building without enough support to hold itself up, with termites eating the life out of walls.
Devil reversed indicates multiple realities deteriorating at once. On a macro cultural level, this means governments, bureaucracies and diplomatic efforts will fail if the same old program is applied. Be prepared to witness the complete downfall of formidable institutions once believed to be impervious to defeat.
On a personal level, Devil reversed has similar effects, however, there are even more potentialities. An individual can see long held practices eroding before the eyes, such as ingrained routines of any kind, day-to-day or otherwise. Another instance is kicking a bad habit, as Devil card in tarot traditionally relates to addiction. And yet another would be dealing with corporal maladies, or in some cases, death. The name of the game is No More; imagine walking on fractured planks.
Although this all may sound terrible, in many ways, this spiritual climate is the best thing ever.
Let’s move on to the astrological component. The Devil card is associated with the star sign Capricorn, which is ruled by the planet Saturn, and since it’s been pulled as a reversal, the upside down position points to a retrograde. Saturn is currently in retrograde motion, having entered this position on March 25th, and the celestial body will turn direct on August 13th.
In the Vibrational Astrology system, Saturn’s energy function is to eradicate fluff elements; anything insignificant that will not live beyond death will be done away with. In other words, it cuts out all the bullsh*t, brings things to a raw state of being, where whatever is being affected expresses tremendous authenticity.
In tarot, the Devil card can often relate to parents. In this context an entirely new interpretation is possible in terms of how this message applies to life in the month of July. Parents beget babies; this is a birth process, as is life. Life is a continual birth process; pain begets beauty, then beauty begets pain and so on and so on. This concept of birth also relates to the Saturn transit, because as it’s been retrograde since March, something has literally been incubating for five months and will be born in full form come August.
So whatever has crumbled don’t mourn it: consider it fertilizer for dynamic successors.

So, the Fool card reversal is advising crustaceans to become the author of now and to do this it is necessary for the Crab to work with authority by determining what will take place and when. Move with the Saturn transit, take this step by step.
Leo - Shaman of Swords to the left: Lion, July presents a dynamic landscape related to authorship of thoughts. Shaman of Swords in this position can indicate holding back on saying what is known to be true. However, the Shaman, which is also the King in the tarot deck, means authority, so, with this in mind, the Lion reigns supreme over mental processes of all kinds. This is also a spiritual supremacy. You are in command. Exercise rulership over cerebral and metaphysical influence.
Virgo - Eight of Discs upright: Virgin, the month of July sees you taking on an entirely fresh occupation. However, this pursuit is something you have worked on for a long time and it is now certain a high level of mastery has been reached. You are ready. Demonstrate this in your wider community. Reach out and lead. Eight of Discs is associated with Sun in Capricorn: the spotlight is on ownership of being Boss.
Libra - Ace of Swords to the left: Scales, it is wise to hold back and analyze the unfolding of disintegrating processes before starting anew. Ace of Swords to the left indicates the profitability of a mercurial, detached awareness. Watch and wait. The conclusions gleaned from this analysis will prove beneficial beyond belief.
Scorpio - Nine of Discs to the left: Scorpion, this is the season of serious dedication to completion. July is the month to get sh*t done. Whatever requires finalization has been in the works for quite some time. It’s just not ready yet, despite the eagerness to put it out there and disseminate already. Accept genius takes a significant amount of time to engender. Keep working on it, but enjoy the process. Don’t obsess over the end result, stay present to the beauty in active creation.
Sagittarius - Two of Wands upright-leaning rightish: Centaur, listen loud and clear. There are messages from beyond with accurate instructions on how to proceed. While pursuing the correct course of action, there will be visceral indicators, a feeling, a physiological sensation, a clairaudient utterance; the knowing will make itself known. The Life Radar is innate and the core fuel is being regulated by Spirit Guides. Intuit, download the messages and apply in July.
Capricorn - Three of Wands to the left: Goat, your cautious creative expression is acknowledged. There is a strong educational element involved in this and ignoring the scholastic nature of the pursuit would seem fatalistic. Three of Wands to the left promises July will deliver an expansive awareness over the big picture in relation to this future conquest. Prudent assessment can only be beneficial as this area of life unfolds.
Aquarius - Wheel of Fortune: Water Bearer, all systems go! July is the season for your personal expansion. Broadening is abound, however, dilation may occur in the mundane before it dawns the evolution’s reach has stretched to every area of life. In any case, all is wide open.
Pisces - Hanged Man upright kinda leaning right-ish: Fish folk, the Hanged Man suggests an interesting suspension throughout the month of July for your kind. This tarot card is associated with the planet Neptune, and in the Vibrational Astrology system, this celestial body’s energy process generates visions. In Vibrational Astrology, star signs are not archetypes, they are hard to measure psychological purviews. So, Pisces in this system means not seeing a distinction between others and self, there are no barriers. A Pisces views things like race, gender and other social classification tools as completely ridiculous because we’re all the same. So when Neptune, assigned to be Pisces’ planetary ruler, presents itself here through the Hanged Man, this means visions and reality are not distinct in the next few weeks, they are literally fused together. You feel at home here, and, you are not incorrect in acknowledging that imperceptible visions are reality.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Have zero tolerance for the same old sh*t.
- Acknowledge the eradication of unsustainable structures has been happening for a long time. Devil reversed promises in the month of July this erosion process will be pronounced, in a more potent way than ever before, the deterioration will be undeniable and expansive in its reach.
- Do not consume stale food. What was once sustenance will not nourish any longer and may in fact poison.
- Study how death begets life. Maggots grow in carcasses. Dead plants and rotting food create compost to nourish new seedlings.
- Switch up how you present yourself to the world. From a Vibrational Astrology perspective, the Capricorn psychological purview is to wear different suits for different roles; change your costume.
- Review mistakes or awkward phases with dignity and truly identify growth. Appreciate how you’ve matured and why you no longer need certain things, people, or ways of being.
