There’s no rush as July begins. The Sun, your ruler, remains in Cancer and the most hidden sector of your horoscope until the 22nd. Traditionally, this is a time to wrap things up or to be preparing yourself ready for a new phase.
Mercury In Cancer
There’s more to your astrology, however, than first meets the eye. For starters, there’s a hidden theme. Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde until the 12th, also in Cancer. This turns your attention inwards and you may be dealing with secrets or confidences.
Cancer is a caring star sign, emotional and giving. This could be a month when you’re aware you need extra TLC. Or, perhaps there’s someone close you’re caring for. Use the period when Mercury’s retrograde to take stock and mull things over. If you can rest and retreat, do so.
Work & Health
Your health is currently under the cosmic spotlight for a number of reasons. Firstly, there’s a Lunar or Full Moon eclipse in Capricorn and your health sector on the 5th.
This is an important eclipse because it’s the last in an eclipse cycle that began in July 2018. For you, it’s been about your work and health, your lifestyle and routine. You may have been dealing with different issues in these areas and the start of July is a time of reassessment.
This is due to Saturn moving back into Capricorn on the 2nd where it remains until December 2020. Saturn’s the planet of authority and hard work. You could be returning to a job this month. Or, perhaps you hear that you’re no longer needed in a position or role.
When Saturn’s active, it’s important to get real and deal with the facts. Notice whether there’s an imbalance in your daily life. Sometimes, you’re over-worked, other times you’re unemployed.
Themes around work and health continue to surface throughout the month. Your ruler, the Sun, opposes all the big players in Capricorn from the 14th to the 20th. The 20th is the key date in this respect as it’s the date of a New Moon in Cancer.
New Moons are traditionally a symbol of new beginnings but this New Moon is opposed by Saturn. This slams on the brakes or stops you in your tracks.
For some of you, this will be a month when you need to dig deep to complete deadlines or step into a new role of responsibility. Yet, try not to go into automatic mode and do prioritise your well-being.
Also, if you’re craving freedom or you have an entrepreneurial spirit, use some clever aspects to Uranus on the 1st and 22nd to line up a new project or more space for you. Uranus rules technology and its innovative, original nature could open up a new career or vocational path.
Fire Sign Freedom
The turning point for you comes on the 22nd when your ruler the Sun enters your star sign Leo. The Sun represents heat and vitality and the Sun’s move into Leo may coincide with a confidence boost or a surge in energy. You might be actively seeking the sun to warm your spirits.
Certainly, you are likely to feel more restless this month as you now have Mars, the action planet, in Aries and your travel and study sector. This is a dynamic, motivated placing for Mars but could prove frustrating if you can’t get away or embrace the freedom you desire. The 8th and 27th feel argumentative or frustrating.
Do keep your gaze on the future and work towards new experiences. You’ll have Mars in Aries until early January 2021.
Venus brings good friends your way this month, especially women, to lift your spirits. And, if all goes well with work and everyday projects, there could be a financial boost on or around the 27th that makes all your hard work worthwhile.
