Saturn In Capricorn
Your ruling planet, Saturn is on the move early July as it returns to Capricorn. Capricorn is the star sign before yours and Saturn was last here in March 2020.
Things may feel easier as Saturn leaves your star sign Aquarius until the end of the year. Or, perhaps you’re returning to an old issue, something deeply personal or confidential.
When planets are in Capricorn, this is the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Often, it turns your attention inwards rather than being active and out in the world.
You might be working on a research project or be making plans for 2021. You may be actively involved in personal growth or be finding ways to relax and calm your mind.
Sometimes, when planets are in this key sector of your horoscope, you need extra TLC or you’re taking on a caring role. This may be something you’ve been involved with for the last couple of years since Saturn moved into Capricorn late 2017.
Also, on the 5th, there’s a Lunar or Full Moon eclipse in Capricorn. This completes an eclipse cycle which began in July 2018. Eclipses often coincide with highs and lows, dramatic changes. For you, this eclipse cycle has been about your work and health, service to others.
There’s a theme of endings or letting go. This might be a job that’s come to an end. Or, recognising where you need to implement lifestyle changes to take good care of yourself and your body. Saturn, your ruler, is linked to the bones & teeth.
You also have Mercury, the planet of communication, in Cancer and your work and health sector throughout July. The Sun is here too until the 22nd.
Up until the 12th, Mercury is retrograde and this is the time to revise and rework your plans. Do your research, find things out. Once Mercury turns direct on the 12th, then you can put what you’ve learned into practise.
Often, when Mercury turns direct, this coincides with a turning point as news or information comes to light. If you’re looking for work, Mercury turning direct is a great time to get back in touch with old contacts.
Plus, there’s a New Moon in Cancer on the 20th, traditionally a symbol of new beginnings. This is the second New Moon in this sector of your horoscope. Last month, there was a Solar Eclipse in Cancer on June 21st during the Solstice.
Yet, this month’s New Moon coincides with the Sun opposed by Saturn. Therefore, again, this flags up the theme of something coming to an end before you can start afresh.
Events on or close to the 1st and 22nd of the month could be illuminating for you when both the Sun & Mercury team up with your co-ruler Uranus. Be spontaneous and change things around at home or at work and use technology to good effect. Look out for alternative solutions to a health issue too.
Relationships & Activism
The latter period of the month could see your energy levels rising as the Sun moves into Leo on the 22nd. The warmth and vitality of the Sun can boost your confidence and well-being.
Leo is your relationship sector and once the Sun is Leo, you’re right to prioritise your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional. Let another person take the lead, however, and turn to people in your life who inspire and uplift you.
Action planet Mars is in Aries throughout July triggering your inner activist. Aries is your communication sector so you may be playing a more direct role in your community or online.
If you feel strongly about something, speak up and find your voice. Mars is going to be a strong influence for you until the end of the year.
Finally, you have lovely Venus in Gemini throughout July, another nod towards romance or good times. Whatever else is going on personally, ensure you keep seeking fun and enjoyment in life. Children, lovers and playmates are where fulfilment lies.
