JULY 2018

Virgo Sun
Virgo Rising

You’ll want to slow the pace a bit in July as Mercury, your ruler, begins slowing down in preparation for his next retrograde. You may find your energy levels aren’t quite what they normally are, but more than that, failing to slow down is likely to result in an increase in errors and mistakes which require correction later on. Take your time this month, no matter how rushed you may feel.

Venus Enters Leo

 

On the 5th, Venus will move into your solar 12th House of privacy and seclusion–a matter of days before Mercury enters the shadow of his retrograde–making you appreciate even more the opportunity to downshift and practice a bit of self care.

 

Quiet time alone will be beneficial this month, allowing you to focus on replenishing your own vital energy stores. 

 

This is also a time when secret romances are more likely to arise–sometimes as love affairs, and sometimes as a budding romance kept intensely private in its early stages.

 

Mars Rx Out of Bounds, Sun Trine Neptune Rx

 

You could uncover new information or knowledge related to the work you do when the sun and retrograde Neptune shake hands on the 8th, and if so, what you learn could boost your professional profile or reputation in some way.

 

Separately, you might be challenged to think about your finances in a different way, especially if you find your mindset often hinges on how you feel about your financial condition.

Jupiter Stations Direct

 

When Jupiter resumes forward motion beginning July 10th you’ll likely find it easier to make headway in regard to your finances–that’s the good news. You’ll need to make a solid plan and take action, though, in order for that headway to actually happen.

 

Venus Trine Uranus

 

Pleasant surprises are possible near the 11th of July when you could experience a sudden insight into a highly personal matter or intimate relationship which gives you a valuable new understanding.

“This can also be a time to reevaluate whether long standing family or cultural traditions accurately reflect your personal values. If not, those traditions can be quite successfully updated with a minimum of upheaval at this time.”

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini Opposed Pluto Rx

 

Watch for a professional opportunity to arise this month, and if one doesn’t, make your own by taking action towards a career goal or by making a change in the days just after the July 12th eclipse.

 

This new moon solar eclipse has the potential to bring a strong surge of energy to your professional sector, and you can best ride that wave by allowing transformation to occur naturally without resisting it, and by recognizing when it’s in your best interest to stay out of power struggles.

 

Venus Trine Saturn Rx

 

Near the 14th, plan to make some long term structural changes in your most private life. Alternatively, you could opt for beautification or other improvements to your home’s interior or your private sanctuary. Either way, the changes you make now are likely to have a lasting impact on your enjoyment of your personal time and private space.

 

This can also be a time to reevaluate whether long standing family or cultural traditions accurately reflect your personal values. If not, those traditions can be quite successfully updated with a minimum of upheaval at this time.

 

Sun Enters Cancer

 

Social activities take center stage when the sun moves into Cancer for a four week stay beginning July 17th. An increase in invitations and opportunities to network is likely through mid August, so use this time to reconnect with friends and expand your social sphere. You may also feel more inclined to get involved in humanitarian movements or volunteer.

Venus Sextile Jupiter

 

You could receive a generous gift near the 22nd, one delivered in private and meant for you personally. Alternatively, you may decide to make a large purchase or financial outlay for your own personal enjoyment. Whatever it is, you’ll likely get enormous value from it.

 

Venus Opposed Neptune RX

 

Watch the 24th when confusion, misunderstandings, or disillusionment within your workaday sector could make you want nothing more than to escape from the world.

 

It’s ok to step away for a break and come back fresh–in fact, that may be just exactly what you need to do to regain clarity.

 

Sun Square Uranus

 

If you owe a debt of any kind to a friend, you may be called on unexpectedly to fulfill it near the 25th when Uranus challenges the sun from your 8th House of other people’s resources.

 

Be prepared to drop your plans at a moment’s notice if something unanticipated does come up near this date. And don’t take any unnecessary financial risks, especially with money or other resources which either don’t belong to you or which you would have to repay.

Mercury Stations Retrograde

 

Mercury, your ruler, stations retrograde this month on the 26th, directly affecting your energy levels, so be sure to take care of yourself.

 

He’ll be backtracking through your social sector, so if you make plans or accept invitations, be sure to double check arrangements and confirm reservations if you’re going out.

 

This is also the right time to reconnect with old friends or attempt reconciliation if you and a friend have had a falling out of any kind.

 

Sun Opposed Mars Rx, Venus Trine Pluto Rx, Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

 

If you’ve been uncertain about a romantic interest you may finally break it off near the full moon at month’s end but more likely the universe will do that for you, especially if the connection is one you’ve outgrown or is otherwise holding you back and you’ve been resisting making the change.

 

If you’re committed to staying the course with each other you could be reaching the end of a major stage of your relationship as you prepare to embark on the next. Likewise you could experience this full moon lunar eclipse through your relationship to a child if you have any children in your life.
