There’s strong emphasis on your star sign Cancer throughout July. This is your birthday month and the Sun remains in your star sign until the 22nd. When the Sun is in your sign, it’s the time to shine and put your needs first.
Also, from the 5th to the 19th, you have the planet of communication Mercury in Cancer. This Mercury is great for caring and counselling, listening and advising.
Your star sign is one of the emotional water signs. Whether you’re offering advice or asking for help or support, be there for other people and ensure you have people you can lean on too.
This is a reflective Mercury and you may spend some of your time day-dreaming or contemplating who you are and what makes you happy.
It’s a good month to dive into self-help or a personal growth project. You might be keen to study or learn a new language. Mercury’s clever and bright and flexes your intellectual muscle.
The 16th could be a stand-out date for asking for what you want when Mercury sits next to the Sun in Cancer. Or, perhaps you’re taking on the role of coach or counsellor.
On the 18th, the planet of relating Venus also enters Cancer. Venus remains in your sign until mid-August. Enjoy the planet of love & indulgence, art & beauty gracing your star sign.
This can be a gorgeous time for love when there’s a sense of ease in your close relationships. You may enjoy being around other people more than usual and savouring simple pleasures.
You have charm in abundance with Venus in your star sign so use your popularity and attract who or what you want into your life. You may feel more abundant or flush than you have for some time. Or, you’re ready to treat yourself and the ones you love.
The 13th could be a pivotal date for love when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. Full Moons are often about completion or culmination, a time when emotions are heightened and passions are strong.
This Full Moon does indicate a possible ending. One way or another, it’s likely to be a definitive date for love and partnership.
Even though you may experience some ease in July, there’s also potentially some challenge too. For example, action planet Mars completes its journey through Aries and your career and vocation sector on the 5th.
You might be going for it at work as the month begins or be keen to put yourself and your needs first. Mars in Aries is independent, which is great for working under your own steam.
Be wary of a clash, however, especially if there’s someone you’re in competition with or someone you find challenging. Mars clashes with Pluto in your opposite star sign Capricorn on the 2nd.
This isn’t easy planetary energy and it suggests you could feel frustrated or fed up with someone else’s interference or control. Or, perhaps worst case scenario you’re out of a job.
You may be weighing up the advantages of earning good money against the disadvantages of burn out, aggravation or disruption. If in doubt, take a step back and don’t be the victim of someone else’s anger or rage.
Money & New Opportunities
Money & career could take a turn for the better towards the end of the month. Therefore, if one door closes as the month begins, try to remain positive as a new door may open later in July. This is due to dynamic fire sign activity.
Talk planet Mercury enters Leo and your personal money sector on the 19th. This would be a great time to talk yourself up, show off your skills and talents and ask for what you’re worth. Discuss finances at work or with people close to you. Get money matters moving.
The Sun joins Mercury in Leo on the 22nd and there’s a New Moon here on the 28th. This would be an ideal date to set your intentions and initiate new beginnings around money, values and self-worth.
Plus, on the same day, the 28th, the planet of opportunity Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries and your career and vocation sector. The combination of a New Moon in Leo and Jupiter stationing at the peak of your horoscope could be powerful for you. Take advantage of any new opportunity that comes your way. The luckiest dates are the 23rd & 31st, also the 28th.
Trust your natural instincts around money. This may mean being willing to let go of or be less attached to money, assets, possessions.
The Uranus Factor
Freedom planet Uranus is active on the 26th when it aligns with the karmic north node in Taurus. This often indicates the wheel of destiny turning, in an unexpected way. Taurus rules friends and groups in your horoscope.
You may be the one who shocks your friends by a sudden decision you make. When it comes to your friends and group activities, there’s excitement and adventure, but not a lot of commitment or stability. Friends could come and go. Or, perhaps someone lets you down unexpectedly.
Alternatively, you might be around people who you find incredibly diverse and exciting, bringing something different into your life, a new direction.
