As July begins, your stars suggest you could be on a mission. Your ruling planet Mars remains dominant in your star sign Aries until the 5th. And, on the 2nd, there’s a powerful Mars-Pluto clash – Mars in Aries versus Pluto in Capricorn. Mars is speed, action & anger, Pluto often represents the plutocracy, the authorities.
Aries is your personal sector, Capricorn rules your career and vocation sector, your status and reputation. It can be about your parents or elders, the establishment or the hierarchy too. A good question to ask as July begins is ‘what are you up against, who are you fighting and why?’
If you find yourself in an impossible situation, it may be hard to put up with things – a difficult boss or injustice, for example. You could choose to channel your forthright, courageous Aries nature into taking on the establishment and pushing for change.
The Mars-Pluto clash can be angry or raging and your impulsive nature could kick in big-time. It may be wise to put off making a big decision until the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 13th.
Pluto is again active during the Full Moon and this could be the time to decide whether you stay or go. Pluto can be about closing the door and not going back.
Your planet Mars moves into Taurus and your personal money sector on the 5th where it remains until August 20th. Mars is a slow and steady earth sign whereas your ruler Mars wants to move fast.
It’s not a great fit so consider whether you’re wise to favour a slow and steady approach around money – or not. What are you working towards? Keep your eye on the ball around finances and dig deep.
Money could be the reason for an argument on or around the 26th. It’s towards the end of the money when there’s a sense of urgency around finances. This has a lot to do with Uranus in Taurus, the planet of change and surprise.
On the 26th, Uranus aligns with the karmic north node in Taurus. This combination can turn the wheel of destiny, either in your favour or away from you. Therefore, this may be an unpredictable time for you financially.
Keep your eye on the ball when it comes to money matters. You may want more freedom financially or be reconsidering what security means to you. Be prepared for the unexpected.
Uranus is rarely a stable and steady influence. Instead, it’s a planet with a roller-coaster vibe and you’re wise to be flexible and adaptable around money matters when Uranus is active.
Home & Family
Home and family remain important throughout July because of the emphasis on the star sign Cancer. The Sun’s here until the 22nd and talk planet Mercury’s in Cancer from the 5th to the 19th. This would be an ideal month to communicate with loved ones and make some key decisions around your home, your living situation or family.
You might want to retreat and slow down the pace of life and it could be a sentimental month. Care and counsel may be needed. You might be the one turning to loved ones for advice or support, especially around money. Alternatively, you need to step in to take care of the ones you love.
Love planet Venus enters Cancer and your home and family sector on the 18th. Notice who plays a supportive role in your life. You might be redecorating or making the garden look more beautiful. Venus in Cancer favours harmony and beauty in equal measure.
Romance & Fun
The Sun’s move into Leo on the 22nd feels like a blessing for you. This lights up the sector of your horoscope which rules play, creative projects, children, romance & entertainment. The light returns when the Sun moves into Leo and hope and faith are never far away.
You could champion love once the Sun is in Leo and unleash your passionate nature. This is leading up the New Moon in Leo on the 28th, a lovely date for asking someone out, spending quality time with your kids or putting play and entertainment high up your list of priorities.
On the same day as the New Moon, the 28th, big planet Jupiter turns retrograde in your star sign Aries. This is powerful planetary energy for you and it’s a good time to take a risk, speculate, throw caution to the winds.
This may not be a financial move but a choice to live life to the full, expand your horizons, say yes to new opportunities. What do you want to ‘give birth to’, how you can use this creative energy in your own life?
Fire sign energy is strong for you at the end of the month – motivated, spontaneous and fun. The stand-out dates are the 23rd & 31st, both of which could be lucky for you.
