Money is where there’s force and ambition in your horoscope as Mars charges through Aries and your personal money sector up until the 5th. You may experience a sense of urgency around money or finances. It could be a time when you need to be forthright and direct to get your personal needs met.
Mars is in feisty mood at the start of the month and clashes with Pluto in Capricorn on the 2nd. This combination is combustible and volatile and not for the faint-hearted. You might be up against the authorities or fighting someone close over money.
It could be an ongoing issue which flares up again. It’s important to stand up for your rights but choose your battles carefully. This kind of planetary conflict can wear you out or be dangerous.
Alternatively, as Pluto negates what it touches, it may mean that a source of money is no longer available to you. This could be the source of frustration or the trigger that starts an argument. Be aware that money and friendship don’t mix as July begins.
Behind the scenes, there’s a gentler vibe taking place and you may be keen to avoid any conflict or clash and hide away instead. The Sun is in your fellow water sign Cancer up until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is swaying along here too from the 5th to the 19th.
Plus, the planet of relating Venus is in Gemini and your home and family sector up until the 18th. Add this all together and it turns your attention towards the things and people in life you love, adopting a slower pace and enjoying simple pleasures.
Venus in Gemini turns your attention towards home and family, your past and where you come from. You might be catching up with people you haven’t seen for some time. Or, be enjoying some quiet time or family time at home.
Venus is particularly active on the 13th & 14th when she aligns with Saturn, then Neptune, your co-ruler in your star sign, Pisces. This is lovely for inspiring your imagination. Dive deep into the realm of fantasy, dreams, your creative or spiritual source.
Cancer is the star sign that rules all the good things in your life, including romance, children & pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and luck.
With the Sun here until the 22nd, this is an ideal time to do more of what you love, to prioritise play and go with the flow. Spend time reading or relaxing, daydreaming or pondering.
Mercury in Cancer from the 5th to the 19th is caring and counselling. Be there for the ones you love and ask for support if you need help or advice.
If there are any issues in these key areas of your life, especially love or parenting, the Full Moon on the 13th could prove pivotal. Full Moons are often a time of completion or culmination and this Full Moon is ideal for making a final decision.
Trust the light of the Moon to guide you and bring you clarity. Tap into your natural intuition and, if necessary, be ready to close a door on the past. There may be some sadness linked to events around this Full Moon but there’s also love and connection available. What takes place could bring you closer to the ones you love.
Also, Venus enters Cancer on the 18th where she remains until mid-August. This is a lovely transit of Venus for romance and passion. Consider what you might ‘give birth to’ while Venus is here as Venus rules art & beauty.
This could be a masterpiece, a work of art, a baby or a love affair. Venus is swooning her way through Cancer and you’ll feel her pull strongly. Lose yourself in your passions.
Do What You Love
On the 22nd, there’s a shift of pace as the Sun leaves gentle Cancer and enters fiery Leo. Talk planet Mercury also moves into Leo on the 19th. Therefore, the latter part of the month is a good time to focus on your work and routine, your health and well-being.
Ensure you’re in tip top condition and that work is a lovely place to be. If it’s not, you might be rethinking or reconsidering what you want to do and how.
The New Moon in Leo falls on the 28th, an excellent date to make a wish and set your intentions around work and health. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings.
This would be a good time to restore your energy, look after yourself and do whatever makes you happy and cheerful. Engage in activities that put a smile on your face.
There’s another reason why the last week of July could be pleasurable for you. This is because your ruling planet Jupiter is in action on the same day as the New Moon, the 28th. This is when Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries in a gorgeous supportive planetary aspect to the Sun & Moon in Leo.
Sometimes, Jupiter turning retrograde means that things take a backward step. Yet, Jupiter’s energy is intense as the planet stations and can be channelled effectively. This means that you could have luck & abundance a’plenty when it comes to work and money.
Lucky dates are the 23rd & 31st. Take a risk, believe in yourself and play big in these key areas of your life. It’s an ideal time to restore your trust, hope and faith in life.
Finally, this month, there’s an unusual connection between the planet of change Uranus and the karmic north node in Taurus. They align in the heavens on the 26th and this can trigger the wheel of destiny turning.
Uranus often brings the unexpected when you may hear surprising news and Taurus is your communication sector. Keep your ear to the ground as it might be something unexpected or unusual that sets change in motion.
This creates a lively, yet restless vibe and you might find it hard to sit still or do the same thing day in, day out. Ring the changes if you can and embrace freedom where possible. Uranus doesn’t like to be chained to a desk.
