Money & Work
Money matters could be a key factor to what you can and can’t do this month. Action planet Mars is completing its journey through Aries and your joint finance sector as July begins.
You may need to be more ambitious when it comes to earning money or sorting out a financial matter. Certainly, there’s a lot of heat in this sector of your horoscope. This coincides with your planet Mercury completing its journey through Gemini and your career and vocation sector. Both planets change star sign on the 5th.
The trickiest challenge could come on the 2nd when action planet Mars clashes with Pluto in Capricorn. This combination is fierce and volatile. Be wary of loaning or lending money and try not to fall out or clash over money either.
You may need to dig deep if money or emotions are a battle. This might flag up a challenging situation with a child or lover, for example, when a taboo is raise its head. It could be a time to fight bravely. Or, perhaps you recognise a no-win situation and you’re wise to steer clear or anger or rage.
What could help is having Venus in Gemini and your career and vocation sector until the 18th. This indicates you’re wise to get on the right side of people of influence and to win other people over. Focus on team-work, recognise who your supporters are and steer yourself towards them.
Friends & Connections
Whatever takes place as the month begins, you will have support in your life. The Sun is in caring Cancer until the 22nd and is joined by your planet, Mercury from the 5th to the 19th. Cancer rules your friendships and group projects. You could be more active within politics or a humanitarian or environmental group. The 16th could be a stand-out date in this respect.
Certainly, it’s a key month to consider your group activities. Think about which activities work for you and where you may need or want to let go and move on. The Full Moon on the 13th could highlight any potential issues and would be an ideal date to release a commitment or responsibility around a group activity.
Friends could take up more of your time this month, especially if you have some friends going through challenges. Be there for others but be careful of over-giving, which is a Virgo trait. Ensure you have time and space for your projects too.
You’ll could find out this month which friendships are nurturing for you, as Venus moves into Cancer on the 18th where she remains until mid-August. This is about seeking mutually-beneficial friendships and connections, supporting and loving one another.
Make a point of honing in on the people you care about the most, not because you want to look after them but because they lift your spirits.
Retreat & Self-Care
There’s a shift in energy on the 19th. Your ruler Mercury is moving quickly this month and picking up the pace. On the 19th, Mercury enters Leo where it remains for just over two weeks. This is a good time to deal with any personal issues, work on your self-confidence and prioritise your needs. If life’s been too social, start to take good care of you.
The Sun also enters Leo and the most hidden sector of your horoscope on the 22nd. This is a time when you’re wise to chill out, relax and take it easy. Go on retreat or ensure you have some quiet time before life gets busy once again.
The New Moon falls in Leo on the 28th, a symbol of new beginnings. Where in life do you want more acknowledgement, compliments, adoration? Speak up if necessary and do so in a way that’s connecting and authentic. Reach out and care for others but most importantly, ask for more self-care for yourself.
The Sun’s move through Leo is traditionally a cosmic call for you to take a step back, relax and retreat. This is in order to prepare yourself for the Sun’s move into Virgo next month.
Listen out for the call of the new towards the end of July, especially on or around the New Moon. This is because big planet Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries on the exact same day, the 28th. Jupiter represents generosity and is a protective influence.
Someone from your past could turn out to be the ideal benefactor or cheerleader of your endeavours. They may step in to help you deal with a financial crisis that kicks in earlier in the month.
If you’re fundraising or asking for financial support, the best day to choose is the 23rd. The 31st is potentially lucky too when the Sun in Leo aligns with Jupiter in Aries.
Finally, the end of the month could bring excitement or ideas around travel, study or the bigger picture. This is Jupiter’s domain. Plus, unpredictable Uranus is in action in Taurus and your travel and study sector.
On the 26th, Uranus aligns with the karmic north node in Taurus and this often triggers the wheel of destiny. You may make a snap decision to broaden your horizons and a last-minute trip away could be on the cards.
At the same time, ensure you’re flexible and don’t get too caught up on your set plans. Life might step in and lead you down a different path. At the end of the month, you’re wise to go wherever life leads you.
