July is going to be such an encouraging sweet month. You will see that you can achieve much as the minor planets sing in harmony as they make their way around the sky. As you progress through July the month just gets better and better. There’s a light, breezy quality to July and I hope you can find ways to use it to your full advantage after reading my forecast.
Readers have noticed that I’ve quietly joined the new social media platform called Discord, which will help us all sail into Web 3.0 together. I invite you to join me there – it’s easier for me to see your questions than on other platforms. I will continue to post thoughts on Twitter (@astrologyZone), Instagram (@astrologyzone) and Facebook (Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone). Discord is a free service that has a lot of bells and whistles, but for now we’re going to start slow and easy. I will have my own community on Discord and I will have my own “server” called AstrologyZone.
I’m adding Discord (#astrologyzone/discord) for several important reasons. The structure of Discord can more easily help us build a strong, close, and loving community. On Discord, I want to hear your most pressing concerns and also how the current planetary configurations are affecting your life.
Discord is divided into different “servers”, but you can think of servers as “communities”. My server is AstrologyZone. When you visit Discord for the first time, you will be asked to create a username and verify yourself to join our group. This way we know that you are not a bot but a real person.
Next, tick your sun sign or, alternatively, your ascendant (also called ascendant—the words are interchangeable). Even though your sun sign and ascendant are equally important, you can only choose one or the other for now. Lots of new features are coming, but for starters we need to keep things clear and simple.
Your choice will automatically place you in one of the four sub-groups of our group (called “Channels” by Discord). Think of channels as rooms. Currently we have four rooms divided according to the elements: fire, air, earth or water. If you were born on the cusp and feel like you were in the wrong room, we’ll help you find the right room. While I’m most comfortable in the General Room at the moment, that could change as we grow.
They can communicate via text, audio, video or through live events. You can post photos, your horoscope, drawings or even jump in real time and say a few things over the audio channel. Meanwhile, our group stays organized and supports others.
The Discord app for smartphones is fantastic, and the app for your computer is very good too. Alternatively, you can just go to Discord.com on the web. However, apps are always safer and more convenient than going online, so I suggest you get a Discord app for your phone. It’s free.
Discord’s audience is largely male (around 80%), giving me – and you – an opportunity to learn about topics that men are currently focused on. I want to know what men find crazy, what they would like to change and what parts of life they would like to keep. I invite men to talk about dating, commitment and how it feels to be a modern man. This can improve communication between men and women – I hope so! For every participant, and that is you, I want to hear about your successes too, because we all need to be inspired by good news.
I feel the same excitement in learning about Web 3.0 that I felt when I first heard about the Internet and started my website in 1995. It is my mission and desire to create a strong group here where we can share information and have fun creating new friends. We can learn from each other and hang out together all the time just to have fun. Astrology can show you ways to keep growing no matter your age and can also help you reach your full potential.
I have asked my main moderator, Isis Djata, to ensure that our community members are friendly to one another and always feel safe and welcome. I think you will love the atmosphere we will maintain. Discord gives us the tools that allow us to create order and warmth between us.
If you’re new to Discord (like me), I recommend watching an introductory video on YouTube. I’ve looked at several, and my favorite short tutorial is by Eagle Garrett, What is Discord? A Beginner’s Guide to Using Discord.”
Together we start a great adventure in Web 3.0. Come – you won’t want to miss a minute of it!
Now moving on to another topic, my brand new app Moonlight Phases of the Moon by Susan Miller, just released in June on the Apple App Store and Google Play – search for Moonlight Phases. If you just search for “moonlight” you’ll find that there are many apps with that name, which of course have nothing to do with the moonvoid. If you come to my “Moonlight Phases of the Moon” you will see me in my white blouse. No other app is like mine.
You may be wondering when the moon will naturally empty and why should you care? The moon is the fastest moving celestial body in our solar system. Each month, it cycles through all 12 characters in 29 to 30 days. In this way the lovely Moon holds conversations with almost all the planets in a single month, either by conjunction, trine, square, opposition or sextile. When the moon has finished encountering the planets, she will retire to her boudoir and rest. Then, of course, the moon disappears. The moon will leave its void when it reappears in a new zodiac sign, and I’ll also let you know when that will happen.
While the gracious moon catches up on its beauty sleep, not much productivity is happening down here on earth. You have to watch for idle time because there is no time to do important activities – don’t have a big job interview, don’t have a first date, launch a new product, close a house, you have the idea.
When a major media outlet writes to us asking me for an interview, I ask my assistant to check the Moonlight app first and make sure the moon isn’t empty when we schedule the interview. If so, the interview would fizzle out. If you buy a plane ticket with a blank moon, you will likely need to change it later and additional costs may apply.
The app I designed for you has many functions and of course the most important one is to tell you exactly when the moon is empty. The moon might not disappear at all on a given day, and on other days the gentle moon might disappear for many hours or just a few minutes. I’ve seen when the moon is empty all day. Every day is different and unique, which is why you will use this app every day to check the news about the moon.
I will tell you what sign the moon is in and also suggest activities that are perfect for you when the moon is empty.
Until now, it has been almost impossible to find out when the moon is empty. There are tables of numbers on the internet, but once you find them, you’ll need to convert them to your time zone. This is not necessary if you use my app. We determine your exact location via GPS. So when you travel, your app gives you accurate information anywhere in the world.
My Moonlight Phases of the Moon app costs $7.99 and is a one-time purchase (no subscription) that transports you to the year 2050. The app also tells you which sign the moon is visiting that day, if the moon is changing signs and when exactly that will happen. I’ve written suggestions for activities that are perfect when the moon is in each of the 12 signs. I also tell you about the full moon, new moon and the other six phases of the moon and what these phases mean to you. This app was three years in the making and I had to teach astrology to my engineers first. It’s beautifully designed and easy to navigate.
Moonlight Phases of the Moon by Susan Miller doesn’t replace my award-winning app, Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone by Susan Miller – it adds a whole new layer to it. My classic daily horoscope app shows both your daily horoscope for each zodiac sign and all 12 of my monthly predictions, unedited and in their entirety.
You can get this app for free with a short daily forecast, and if you want to upgrade to the premium version (like most people) it’s an in-app purchase at Go Shopping. The premium paid version of the app gives you much more detailed daily information and costs about $1.00 per week, $4.99 per month in subscription. (There are other options for longer subscriptions with a 15% discount.) $1.00 per week costs a lot less than your morning cup of coffee and gives you great value.
My costs are increasing, so the free version of my app will soon contain ads, but only those that we think you would find interesting (I have a long list of ads that we won’t accept and will dismiss). You will never see ads in the paid premium version of my app at $4.99 per month. This app also includes GPS to give you your prediction for the right day as this app is loved by English speaking readers around the world.
Finally, I promised my international readers the Year Ahead 2022 that I wrote for Instyle and the Beauty Box. It’s available now on Kindle and BookBaby.com in many international formats, as well as PDF. It costs $7.99 and is only available in digital format, not in paperback or hardcover. If you got my 2022 Year Ahead in the Beauty Box, inevitably a lot of the material I had written had to be taken out. As a result, my brochure was only 58 small pages (I had written 50,000 words just for the year-ahead portion). Now you can see the entire manuscript with all the dates I suggested.
The part of the book that seems worth the price is my 9,300 word chapter entitled The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, which took place on December 21, 2021 and life as we know it for will change over the next 200 years. This chapter is at the beginning of the book. I’m giving you a detailed look at what’s to come so you can stay excited because it’s not something we’ve seen in the last 200 years!
Or simply get it on your iPhone or iPad via the Apple Books app.
I have many more surprises to tell you about next month, so stay tuned dear readers!
