July 2018 Planetary Overview

July 10th: VENUS ENTERS VIRGO – you tend to have a pragmatic approach to relationships. You succeed to stay motivated during monotonous tasks. „Pragmatism asks its usual question. «Grant an idea or belief to be true,» it says, «what concrete difference will its being true make in anyone’s actual life? How will the truth be realized? What experiences will be different from those which would obtain if the belief were false? What, in short, is the truth’s cash-value in experiential terms?»“ (William James)
