Gather the Women Australia (GTWA) is part of a global movement of diverse women joining with many others to celebrate our true worth. “Our vision is to empower each other to make the changes within our own worlds, which will enhance our lives and the lives of all beings around us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, to bring about a peaceful and ethical world.” For more info about the Sydney event: http://www.gatherthewomenoz.com/.

7 July – Live Earth Concert
7/7/07 is a day dedicated to using music as a way of uniting our global consciousness around climate change. Check out the site for info on the eight concerts, live broadcast transmissions, tips on how to reduce your carbon footprint, and how great a difference we can make as individuals: “If one million Americans used rain barrels, they could collect enough water for the daily usage of about one million others.” http://www.liveearth.org/
14 July – New Moon Cancer
Feelings might come up today related to the ways in which you nurture and nourish yourself and others. It’s a good day to make a change if you know you need to spend more time feeding your soul with all it needs, whether that’s some pampering, more time out, kinder thoughts, or treating yourself as you would like to be treated.
17 July - Fire the Grid
A global project of loving intention, asking for one hour of your time in meditation at 11.11amGMT 17 July. (Thanks Vasumi!!) Excerpt from the site by Shelley Yates: "The light beings use the term "fire the grid" when they speak of the energizing of humanity with divine power, on July 17, 2007....We must pour some of our living energy into the Earth, and the accumulation of our combined energy will regenerate the Earth. They told me humans are like little lightening rods, channelling God's energy to the planet. Because we have separated ourselves from our complete connection to The Source, by not having a fully functioning human grid, God's energy has not been able to easily flow into the Earth. If we choose to come together to rebuild our grid, then the natural flow of energy between us and God, God and the Earth, and from person to person, will be restored."

28 July-11 Sep – Venus Retrograde in Virgo/Leo
“Venus Retrograde, you’re driving me crazy.” So went the lyrics in a song penned by my sister Kristina during one particularly vexing cycle. Every 18 months Venus the planet of love, money and all that we value does a backwards trip just to make sure we really, really get something that is affecting our relationships to these things. Now, before Venus sends you a little crazy, here’s a tip re the message she’s trying to send you: the quality of these relationships are directly affected by your sense of self-worth and self-love, also ruled by Venus. What are you worth? What do you deserve? Do you love yourself enough to give yourself your best possible life? Do you listen to your soul when she/he asks you for something?
With so many people now plugged in to the teachings of The Secret, and wanting to manifest lives filled with abundance, love and connected relationships, it’s so important to know this one thing: In order to really let in all the things you desire, in a lasting, healthy, positive way, your foundations of self-love, self-worth and self-value have to be strong enough to support them. If Venus is affecting your chart right now, (see if you have a natal planet around 3 degrees Virgo or within a few degrees either side: http://www.astro.com/ provide free charts) then these foundations are about to be tested or given a shake-up, particularly as far as love and money are concerned - the life areas that show us most clearly how these foundations are doing.
If your foundations are strong, and you’ve built something healthy on them, then all will be well. If not, you will get clear signs that it’s time to either strengthen and improve them, or let go as easefully as possible while something you’ve built comes tumbling down - in which case know that Venus is clearing the way for something more in alignment with your soul’s true worth and desires. It's time to completely re-evaluate any values you hold, and find out whether they are the natural values of your soul - or outdated values no longer serving you.
30 July – Full Moon Aquarius
This full moon, give yourself permission to let out your inner Aquarian – think crazy, unconventional, spontaneous. Take a walk on the wild side especially if you’ve been running on the routine treadmill for a while. You might feel like breaking free from some rut, but before you scream “I quit” at the boss go do something that gives you a sense of freedom – that’s what you’re really looking for. Anything that feels confining or restrictive right now is going to feel extra tight, so it’s a good time to address it and do something about it!
