The Bob Marks July
and World Forecasts for 2024

Welcome to my monthly forecasts. These forecasts will help you understand the energies around you. The planets are constantly shifting and the universal energies affect our daily lives

Each month I will guide you through the planetary movements and explain them in detail. Some months will have more astrological events than others but there will always be universal movements that will affect you.


Monday July 1: Sun Semisquares Uranus: Be careful trying anything new today. Think before you act.

Tuesday July 2: Mercury Trine Neptune AND Mercury enters Leo AND Venus trine Saturn: Your imagination and creativity are stronger today. When it comes to enjoyment though, stick to quiet pleasures.

Wednesday July 3: Mercury opposes Pluto: You could really tell someone off today. The problem is they will never forget it and they will get you back. Silence is golden right now.

Thursday July 4: Mercury Semisquares Saturn: Delays with transportation and communication. Allow extra time to do things.

Friday July 5: Mars Sextile Saturn: Energy plus patience! Today you can tackle those difficult jobs you’ve been putting off.

Sunday July 7: Venus semisquare Jupiter AND Venus square Eris: Relax and enjoy. But make sure you don’t overdo it. Venus/Jupiter can also cause overspending. Avoid making major purchases right now

Monday July 8: Venus sextile Uranus AND Mercury sextile Jupiter: Good for communications. Make those calls, send those text messages. Meet people face to face today. This is also good for New Contacts. Don’t just sit there. Get going.

Wednesday July 10: Sun Trine Saturn: Today is good for taking care of those boring tasks you have been putting off.

Thursday July 11: Venus trine Neptune AND Venus enters Leo AND Jupiter semisquare Eris AND Mercury semisquare Neptune: Today is busy but also a little confusing. Doublecheck everything before you do it.

Friday July 12: Venus opposes Pluto: This is NOT the best day to deal with relationship problems or to make large, financial transactions. Wait a little longer.

Sunday July 14: Venus sesquasquare Saturn: This is good for doing hard work (Saturn) to beautify things around you (Venus). But it is not good for going to a beauty parlor. It will take too long and you won’t be satisfied.

Monday July 15: Mars Conjunct Uranus: This can increase the chance of accidents. GO SLOW!

Wednesday July 17: Sun Square Eris: This can increase the chance of arguments, especially with women. Just keep busy today, but don’t overdo it.

Sunday July 21: Venus sextile Jupiter AND Mercury square Uranus AND Sun trine Neptune AND Mars trine Pluto: Busy day. Extra energy. Once again, don’t spread yourself too thin.

Monday July 22: Sun enters Leo: For the next four weeks, pay more attention to having a good time!

Tuesday July 23: Sun opposes Pluto AND Venus sesquasquare Neptune: Any arguments that start now may take a long time to fix. Better to walk away.

Friday July 26: Sun sesquasquare Saturn: When Saturn is active, you have to take care of the things you have been putting off. Get busy.


"Forewarned is Forearmed"

There is nothing like a major worldwide disaster to ruin your day. What good does it do to read in your horoscope that “Today is a wonderful time to get out and meet new people” if everyone is being forced into quarantine by a pandemic? We must pay close attention to the Astrology of World Events for our own protection.

Do you think this decade, the 2020’s, has been crazy and chaotic so far? Trust me, we haven’t seen anything yet. Not to worry. Forewarned is Forearmed.

First, Pluto, the planet of extremes, entered Aquarius, the Sign of sudden and unexpected changes, on January 20. The last time Pluto was there was during the late 1700’s when we had the American, French, and Industrial Revolutions. The time before that was the early 1500’s. That one gave us the Protestant Reformation as well as 150 years of religious wars.

Right now, there are several potential wars brewing in the Middle East and Taiwan. Artificial Intelligence is poised to totally change the way we work and live. And Pluto is just beginning a 20 year stay in Aquarius.

"The Attack of the Outer Planets "

If you think this decade of the 2020’s has been wild and crazy, brace yourself. We haven’t seen anything yet. During the next few years, the World will be hit by a Cascade of Astrological events any one of which can turn things upside down and inside out. The most powerful effects will be caused by three outer planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Pluto a planet of power (death and rebirth) is already hitting us. It has entered Aquarius, the sign that likes to turn everything upside-down. Demonstrators are already occupying University campuses all over the country. And this is only a small beginning. The last time Pluto entered Aquarius, we had the American and French Revolutions. The time before that in the fifteen hundreds, the Protestant Reformation ushered in a century of religious warfare. Pluto isn’t just “out with the old; in with the new.” It’s “Let’s completely destroy the old until nothing is left.”

Uranus, planet of sudden and unexpected change, is going through Taurus, a rock-solid sign of stability. The last time that happened was 1936 to 1942. No, Uranus going through Taurus didn’t cause World War II all by itself. But it did contribute to the world-wide instability then, just like it is doing now.

What has Uranus done to the United States over the years? Plenty! It takes Uranus about 84 years to circle the Sun. When it does this, it “returns” to where it was in the birth chart. The first time Uranus returned in America’s chart was 1860. Abe Lincoln won the election and the Southern Stated started to leave the Union. The result a few months later was the Civil War.

The next Uranus Return was in 1944. That’s right. World War II. Both times the nation was fighting for its life. The next Uranus Return for the United States will be right after the Presidential Election in 2028, just 4 years from now. Will History repeat itself? The planets certainly do.

How about Neptune, planets of Dreams and Ideals? It’s now going through Pisces, the sign that it rules. The last time it did that was 1848 to 1861. That was the set-up period for the U.S. Civil War. People’s ideas changed. Then Neptune went into Aries, the sign that rules War, and they decided to fight for those beliefs.

Any one of these planetary transits could cause major upheavals in the world. Over the next decade, we are going to get all three.

What can we do to protect ourselves? Keep a close watch on our own personal horoscopes. As long as we can see what’s coming for ourselves, we can maneuver and come out ahead.

I was reading for a client once who told me: “If you see something bad coming, don’t tell me; I don’t want to know.” My answer to him was: “If you’re driving at night, don’t turn on the headlights. You may see something nasty in the road.”

And that’s what Astrology is for. Like headlights on a car, it helps us see what’s ahead so we can drive safely through our life.

The big problem here is that all these things are going on at the same time. There is too much happening to put in one post. That is why I am making World Forecast a regular feature of this website.

Stay tuned.

See you next month for the June Forecasts and World Forecasts
