Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This is going to be a month of new beginnings and discoveries. Keep your mind and your heart open to these opportunities throughout the course of the month, as great things are in store for you so long as you don’t allow them to pass you by. The solar eclipse will direct your attention specifically to your home life, calling on you to make some small changes or improvements. This may mean redecorating or completing a home DIY project you previously started but never got around to completing. If you feel stuck for inspiration and ideas, don’t worry! The lunar eclipse is going to bring a significant boost in this area of your life starting on July 21st. Keeping a diary or journal during this time will allow you to record all of your great ideas before the creativity passes you by.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
July will be largely focused on the various relationships in your life, strengthening your connections and encouraging you to explore both new relationships as well as the depth of those that you have already established. If you are currently in a romantic relationship, the energy lingering from the lunar eclipse will create the perfect influence for a day of fun and romance on the 22nd. Take the time to enjoy one another’s company and relax free from the pressure of day to day living. If you are single, this is a day that you should get out there, creating opportunities to meet that someone special. Sign up for a local community event, or just get out of your house and in public places. The romantic energy will allow you to notice the spark far easier than you normally would. Be cautious as the month comes to a close. Starting on the 24th you may be put into a situation where friends aren’t telling you the whole truth. Take anything that you are told at this time with a grain of salt, regardless of who this information may be coming from. Personal research and confirmation are necessary before believing anything to be the truth.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
If you have been looking for an opportunity to improve your current financial status or career efforts, the month of July is going to be your month! You will find yourself inspired by new ideas and concepts, encouraging you to take risks that may have otherwise been overlooked. Try not to be too nervous about these risks as they will ultimately bring you great success! Any ideas regarding opportunities to make money that come to you after the 12th should be written down as they are worth exploration and consideration. They may not all be practical, but if you take the time to weed through them you will find something that will bring you great success. When putting these ideas into practice, be mindful of your scheduling. Start any major projects prior to the 25th, keeping your expectations of yourself light after that date in order to avoid feeling completely overwhelmed.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You are going to see a number of minor and subtle changes in your life, but don’t shrug these off as they are going to bring great results. These changes aren’t always going to be easy, making it incredibly important to get in touch with your inner strength. In many cases these changes may be so small that you don’t even realize it, leaving your feeling exhausted for no tangible reason. Trust in the process and the truth will be revealed to you in time. Just keep your mind and heart open to all that you may encounter. You will feel a boost of energy and conviction on the 12th, triggered by the solar eclipse. Embrace this newfound strength and confidence as you face any challenges that may come your way in the coming days. Be warned, however, that you are going to face some struggles in your financial life starting on the 25th. Make any big decisions relating to money, income, and debt prior to this date to avoid unnecessary consequences.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
While some of the signs are going to relish in the month of July, but it will be far more difficult for you. The changes and growth that you are going to experience may come across as challenging, or even negative as they push you outside of your comfort zone and call everything that you believe to be true into question. You will start the month on a high note, feeling confident and energetic until the 12th, at which point things are going to begin to change behind the scenes. The movement of Mercury into retrograde is going to hit you harder than most as it is moving backward through your sign, and this is where your real difficulties will begin. Starting on the 25th expect unexpected changes or shifts in your life that will catch you off guard. Try not to react too quickly, instead, give these chances the opportunity to play out. Even the most ‘negative’ situations out of the gate may turn around and work to your benefit in the long run if only you allow yourself to see it through.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
If you have been looking for a change in your professional life, then July is going to be your month! If you have recently found yourself getting bored or disinterested in a job that you once loved, the energy this month will help you to reconnect with the aspects of your work that you were once passionate about. Meanwhile, if you have been trapped in a job that you can’t stand, this will be the ideal time to make a dramatic change! Start to explore the options available to you with an open mind, as the ideal career may surprise you. On the 11th and 12th, you will find the inspiration and motivation to take the necessary steps to put your thoughts, goals, and plans into action. Trust your gut during this time, as it will guide you to make the best choices for your future. You will begin to see the reward for taking these steps later in the month as money may be coming your way around the 22nd.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
This is going to be a month of creativity for you, so embrace the unexpected and don’t try to force yourself to color between the lines. This open-minded approach to life any and all areas of our life from your career to your home life, your personal style to your relationships. On the 13th you will find that your friends are full of great ideas and suggestions, embarrassing their own creativity. These ideas may sound wild and out there, but trust that there may be something beneficial among all the craziness. While you may feed off one another and take things over the top, if you take a step back and refocus, you will be able to separate the good ideas from those that are merely joking around. When you are nearing the end of the month, however, you need to put your guard up. Around the 23rd you will be highly susceptible to manipulation. Carefully consider anything that you are being told before taking it to heart.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Throughout the month of July, you will find yourself reconsidering your life philosophy, seriously thinking about the very foundation of who you are. Don’t rush this process. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or dragged down by this time in your life, then it may be a great time to take a necessary vacation. Embrace the travel bug and see all that the world has to offer. Mercury Retrograde is going to be particularly confusing, especially in relation to your professional life and financial goals. Avoid making any decisions relating to these topics throughout this time, as they will likely come back to bite you down the road. Furthermore, don’t forget to trust those that you love. Friends and family will always be by your side, but they will be especially generous around the 27th. Don’t take advantage of this generosity.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Your adventurous nature will be in full force throughout the month of July, and there is no reason not to embrace it! Allow yourself to seek out new experiences both locally and abroad, following your heart and trusting your intuition. You may find guidance through a dream around the 5th, helping you to see the opportunities before you in a new light. If you are looking to sway a large group of people to see things your way, then the 10th is your day. The energy of the month at this time will boost your communication skills, allowing you to effectively share your point of view. If you are embracing the travel bug, ensure that you are flexible in your planning around the 12th as unexpected plans will interfere with your schedule. Go with the flow and everything will turn out just fine.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Despite the fact that you choose to see the world through a lens of facts and logic, this is going to be a month that forces you to re-examine your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in terms of your relationships. Prepare yourself to consider the way that you view the people in your life around the 12th of the month. Take a step back and reassess recent events in your life, including how they influence those that you hold dear. Consider who has been there for you through thick and thin, and who only comes around when they need something. This is the perfect opportunity to reconsider who is worth your time. If you are trying to make any changes in your life, the energy around the 14th will improve your communication skills dramatically. You will be able to voice your opinions clearly and concisely.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You are about to experience some incredible growth and advancement in your career, but only if you make a point of maintaining an open mind. You have felt as though your creativity has failed you as of late, leaving you bored and uninspired in the workplace. This is going to change, however, around the 11th when the energy of the month motivates you to find new ways to make money on the job. These ideas will lead to some interesting changes starting on the 12th. Prepare to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty, as it’s going to take some hard work and dedication to put these plans into action, but it will be worth it! Warning: the coming lunar eclipse is going to mess with your emotions leaving you irritable and easily frustrated around the 25th. You don’t want to make any rash decisions during this time. Take a step back and count to 10 before committing to anything.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You are known for the fact that you live most of your life with your head in the clouds, and this is going to be no different. The month of July is going to be a bit of a rollercoaster, packed with both highs and lows. You will be on a high around the 8th of the month which will lead you to be the life of the party. Allow yourself to let your hair down and truly enjoy this time in your life. Unfortunately, it will be short lived as you face conflict with someone important in your life around the 24th. This may be a romantic partner, a close friend, a family member or a co-worker. Despite your temptation to retreat to your own little world, you need to force yourself to stay grounded. Don’t jump to conclusions. Instead, make the effort to see their point of view and it will happy you come to a happy settlement.
