It’s time to delve a bit deeper over the next four weeks, so get prepared for some reflective opportunities and some tests to your faith. In terms of numerology, July is our number 7 month and heralds a turn into the inner and under worlds. Have you been lacking understanding of your bigger picture lately? Well now is the prime opportunity to meditate on your options and take a pause.
How Can the Month of July Benefit You?
This month we have a paradox, we are fully into the swing of summer, but with this mystical number arriving, we are also being challenged to dig deep and find some space for introversion. Is this paradox a bit like the current weather in the UK? It’s supposed to be hot, but it’s relatively wet and stormy. Things don’t always follow the status quo with this “lucky” number.
Any situations, like this, which push you to being less out than in; this is classically central to what the number 7 is about. Events and situations arise at times in our life where we have no choice but to stop or go inward. If you find your holiday plane delayed or cancelled, use the diversion to practice positive self-talk and surrender. Something this month may well offer you this opening.
Often people are repelled by the number 7 “fall” when it’s not of their own making. It can feel tough to have the rug pulled from beneath us, or for our best laid plans to crack up. Moreover when things seem to just go stagnant it can be worrying to our ever active mind and largely, productive based society. Yet, don’t fret; use this golden gateway to get a better footing for your long term progression. Tranquility and the art of being isn’t a bad thing, in fact it can be very enjoyable, when accepted.
The most inactive from all the number vibrations, seven offers opportunities in analysis, spirituality, and in gaining general “self-awareness”. Additionally this number brings the arena of imagination and magic into play. This month you may be required to really understand something from a more advanced point of view. You may also encounter more time and room for you to experience solitude. If you were planning a break then make sure you have some time for yourself lined up in addition to mixing with others.
A Time for Inward Contemplation and Planning
Wisdom and the pursuit of knowledge is what this number craves most, so allow your inner hermit or your wise old crone to arise and teach you a thing or two. In a cafe the number seven would be sitting quietly, tucked away in a back corner, drinking a herbal tea or watching the world go by and analysing the view. If you take action during this rather thoughtful month, make sure you have all the facts and fully consider what you are doing. Sometimes the continual, avid quest for perfection just moves it further away from us.
Here are some tips for making the most of the next few weeks:
Get reflective and contemplative
Try to find time for solitude
Spend time in meditation or go to a meditation / healing / self-development group
Consider your longer term plan and the direction of your life
Get creative, allow your imagination or inner fantasy life to infuse with your outer reality
Look out for bits of wisdom where you least expect it
Shift to a slower pace
Try and learn something new or take up some studying
Allow for the present moment and have faith in your path and courage in yourself
Cancer and Number Seven Similarities
We will be welcoming in the number 7 month whilst in the Astrological sign of Cancer and it’s no surprise that there is a great deal of common ground between the number 7 and the symbol of the crab. Just like this introverted number, the crab hides under the protection of its shell, coming in and out for shelter. Therefore sensitivity and a need for seclusion unites both the number and the sign. Cancer’s are easily upset and although they have a strong desire to protect and be with family and those they hold dear, they often need time alone to replenish and guard their soft inner natures.
Trotting along with their funny, sideways walk, the crab may appear odd, but can fool most people, because the speed at which it can move, and its stealth ability to avoid intruders or unnecessary attention is exceptional. Boundaries are important for the cancer type and this number vibration, so set them appropriately.
Enjoy the mystical opportunities over the next month, and learn to ride the waves of your own developing consciousness. If you get caught out at high tide, you better rely on your mental faculties or your intuition to swim clear of the swell.
