Your ruling planet Mercury completes its journey through Gemini and your career and vocation sector as the month begins. Mercury entered Gemini on May 4th, then turned retrograde and was on go slow for most of June.
Now Mercury is strong again, pick up up the pace, start conversations and get things moving. Mercury remains in Gemini until the 12th so act fast.
The one date that’s not helpful is the 6th when Mercury clashes with Neptune. If there’s someone you don’t trust or who doesn’t approve of what you’re doing, give them a wide berth.
Friends & Support
On the 12th, Mercury enters Cancer and your friendship and group sector where it remains until the 28th. This shows you where support lies in the month ahead, especially emotional.
The Sun is here until the 22nd and there’s a lovely New Moon in Cancer on the 10th, a symbol of new beginnings. Reach out to other people and make loving connections.
The best date potentially is the 12th when your planet Mercury aligns with lucky Jupiter in Pisces and your relationship sector. You could hear good news or there’s reason to celebrate for your partner or someone close.
Love too could be in the ascendancy. The other date of note is the 24th when Mercury teams up with romantic Neptune.
The star sign that dominates throughout July is Leo which rules the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Leo rules rest and retreat in your life and turns your attention inwards.
This is an ideal time for prioritising self-care. Ensure you have plenty of quiet spaces in your life, a pause amongst the busyness.
At its most extreme, this could mean you’re on retreat or have to spend more time at home. Sometimes, you end up looking after other people when planets are in the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Put yourself and the ones you love first.
Sometimes, when planets are in Leo, you find yourself going back to the past. This month is a key time for reconnecting with old friends and old faces.
Someone might pop back into your life unexpectedly or you’re reminded of a person you haven’t seen for a long time. Follow any hunches or synchronicities and listen carefully to what life’s telling you. Trust your intuition.
Also, you may be dealing with some personal issues now and this could be a time of inner change. It’s not necessarily a peaceful experience, however, because the relating planets Venus and Mars run into the Saturn-Uranus square aspect.
This all takes place in the first week of July and this could be disruptive or challenging. Try not to give yourself a hard time if things don’t work out. Be kind to yourself and find tools and tricks to deal with any inner angst.
The trickiest dates are the 1st & 7th when Saturn slows you down and work or health issues could be foreground. Then, the 4th & 8th when unpredictable Uranus is in action.
Put this altogether and you could feel frustrated or find that your plans don’t work out the way you want them to. Uranus in Taurus highlights your travel and study sector, so ensure you have plan B and C up your sleeve if you’re on the move.
It’s a good idea to double-check paperwork, travel visas and correspondence earlier rather than later. Ideally, don’t leave things to the last minute.
Any issues that arise early in the month could get sorted out later on in July. On the 22nd, the Sun enters Leo followed by your planet Mercury on the 28th. Plus, there’s a Full Moon on the 24th which often brings resolution or a sense of culmination.
This could be a helpful Full Moon for both work and health matters. Plus, right at the end of the month on the 29th, big planet Jupiter returns to Aquarius where it was earlier this year.
You might be able to find a solution for a work or health matter. Or, seeds that were sown earlier in the year could start to flourish. Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and growth remains in Aquarius until the end of this year.
Think of this month as a time of preparation getting ready for the next wave of planetary energy in your star sign, Virgo. This kicks in on the 22nd when love planet Venus enters Virgo and immediately connects with lucky Jupiter, potentially a stand-out date for love and romance.
Finally, action planet Mars enters Virgo on the 28th giving you some much-needed get up and go.
Re: Virgo. For Month of July. Isn’t July rules by Cancer? Which would be Virgos 11th House? It says here that July is rules by Leo, which is Virgos 12th House. Isn’t August Virgos 12th House? I just want to make sure I got it right.
Sally Kirkman says
There are more planets in Leo than Cancer this month – that’s what my astrology means. Yes, the Sun is in Cancer – Virgo’s 11th house but Leo is the star sign that dominates this month – Virgo’s 12th house. Hope that helps.
