You can expect a busy month ahead. This is because there are a stack of planets in earth sign Virgo. Action planet Mars is here all month, the planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th. Plus, talk planet Mercury is in Virgo from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.
Virgo rules communication in your horoscope. This is about your daily commute and what you do in life day in, day out.
Virgo rules your siblings and neighbours, your local community and it’s often a period of the year when you’re busier than usual. You might be ferrying family back and forth or be dealing with a lot of correspondence in your place of work.
When planets are in Virgo, it’s a good time to get organised and structure your life. Put daily habits in place that benefit your mind, body and spirit. Manage your time well and see how you can effectively utilise the time you spend commuting or your lunch hour or other key areas in the day.
This is also a good time for making new friends. Virgo is one of the social sectors of your horoscope and this feels lively, whether you’re meeting friends close to home, catching up with neighbours or siblings or you join a new group, club or society.
Uranus, the planet of surprises, is also in action in Taurus and your friendship sector on the 3rd, 20th & 22nd. Say yes to any invitations that come your way on or around these dates.
This whole period feels positive for social get-togethers, learning and experiencing more. You might become a student this month and start a new course. Or, you step into a teaching role and pass on what you know.
Do things differently and don’t stick to the tried and tested. Uranus rules innovation, so this is about new ideas, technology and new ways of thinking. Be around friends who excite you, friends who are alternative or look at life from a different perspective.
Brainstorm ideas, write things down and express yourself in the written word. It’s potentially a creative period of the year for you. Notice what happens on or around the 20th, when Uranus switches direction.
Money is a key area in your life all month, especially during the New Moon on the 8th and the Full Moon on the 22nd. The Sun is in Leo and the sector of your horoscope that rules your money until the 22nd.
The first week of August could highlight where any financial issues lie but resolve to start afresh on the New Moon in Leo, which falls on the 8th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and a great time to set your intentions for the month ahead.
There’s a tradition of writing an abundance cheque to yourself on the New Moon. State how much you want or need to earn by the time of the Full Moon on the 22nd and offer it up to the universe.
Then, make a wish when you first catch sight of the crescent moon on the 9th or 10th. There’s magic in cosmic law if you’re willing to engage with it. The current lunations highlight your money sectors so make the most of them.
Events could peak around the Full Moon on the 22nd, which pulls in lucky Jupiter now back in Aquarius and your joint finance sector. This would be a good date for a celebration, to treat yourself or the ones you love. Or, you may find that money comes your way via a gift or third party.
You may be proud of someone close to you around the Full Moon, someone who’s doing well and is appreciative of what’s happening in your life. There’s a flow of planetary energy which suggests that what you give you receive in return.
If you’re a typical Sun Cancer, you’re caring and kind and do a lot for other people. Your loving nature may be rewarded this month in more ways than one. It might be financial or emotional, i.e. help or care that’s needed.
Home & Family Priorities
Libra is the star sign at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. This is where you find balance and harmony in your life.
Once Venus returns to Libra on the 16th, retreat to your home, your nest, your loved ones if you’re feeling unbalanced. If you need to restore harmony or order at home, make this a priority in the second half of the month.
It would be a good time to consider your surroundings and where you live, whether you want to redecorate or find a new home.
As a Sun Cancer, you create family wherever you are, so this isn’t only about blood relatives but people dear to your heart, your employees or the people you work alongside.
