It’s a lively start to July as there’s a major planetary clash on the 2nd when two of the volatile planets, Mars and Pluto, square up to one another. Immediately, this tells you it’s likely to be a significant month for you regarding money.
This is because Pluto is in Capricorn and your personal money sector. If you’re dealing with debt or a loss of income, this combination is combustible when tempers could flare.
This may not necessarily be about your situation. Perhaps, it’s to do with someone close to you. This is because Mars is in a fellow fire sign Aries ruling children and lovers in your horoscope.
Not being able to afford the things you want to do could leave you feeling frustrated. Or, perhaps there’s an ongoing clash with a child or lover as you disagree over spending or money management. It’s a heated planetary conflict and not the ideal time to raise the roof.
There are other reasons why money’s likely to be an important factor this July. Hopefully, the astrology can help guide and advise you on your best course of action. The Sun’s in Cancer and your joint finance sector until the 22nd and talk planet Mercury is here too from the 5th to the 19th.
Immediately, it looks as if finances in some shape or form are top of your agenda, whether you’re trying to help other people or you need to attend to your finances.
Cancer rules the sector of your horoscope that’s about savings & investment, debt & loss, inheritance & alimony, money owed & money shared. It can play out in different ways for you but it’s important to note that Cancer is a family and home-oriented star sign.
Therefore, this might be a month when you want to set up a savings account or you’re discussing pooling resources with the people you live with or the people you’re closest to.
Open the lines of communication this month and do your research if you want to pay for something special. This is what communication planet Mercury is good for, working out the facts and figures, finding things out.
The Full Moon on the 13th is likely to be a pivotal date as it cuts across the Cancer-Capricorn axis of the zodiac. Plus, Pluto is involved again during the Full Moon. This might mean saying no when it comes to money, cutting expenses or stopping a payment.
Full Moons are a time of completion and culmination when the light of the Moon is at its brightest. It’s a time for clarity, to trust your intuition and to make key decisions.
The astrology doesn’t suggest that the first half of the month is a time to speculate or take a financial risk. Yet, as you’ll hear later, this could be different in the latter part of July.
There is a softer influence regarding money and emotional ties, thanks to Venus, the planet of relating. Venus enters Cancer and your joint finance sector on the 18th where she remains until mid-August.
Sometimes, this means you receive a gift or bonus. Or, perhaps you’re the one who’s feeling flush and you want to treat someone close. It’s a good time to get the right kind of advice or support, perhaps from a woman adviser or financial expert. Team up with other people to firm up your future security.
Love & Romance
July could be a hot month for romance and there’s more than one reason why. Firstly, love planet Venus is in Gemini and your relationship sector up until the 18th.
Venus only graces your opposite star sign approximately once every year so make the most of it. The stand-out dates for love are potentially the 13th & 14th when Venus’ power is strong.
Yet, there’s another factor here, involving your ruling planet Jupiter. Jupiter’s currently in Aries and this is your romance sector. Jupiter kicks in big-time towards the end of the month when you may be more than ready to take a punt when it comes to love.
Key dates are the 23rd & 31st, also the 28th when Jupiter turns retrograde. Sometimes, this indicates that love may take a backward step. Yet, it means that Jupiter’s energy is intense and channelled. You might feel more deeply or strongly about someone in your life.
Jupiter’s not only influencing love, as Aries rules children, creativity and entertainment. Wherever your passions lie, dive in deep.
Adventure & New Experiences
You’re one of the fire signs and fire sign energy is strong in the second half of the month. Talk planet Mercury enters Leo on the 19th followed three days later by the Sun on the 22nd. Leo rules travel and study in your horoscope. It’s wherever in life you wish to expand your horizons, dream big and yearn to learn and experience more.
The Sun’s move through Leo could bring out the hedonistic side of your character when you want to play and live life to the full. It’s a good time to catch up with people who inspire you and plan some adventures together.
If travel’s possible for you, it would be a good time to go somewhere new for a change of perspective. This is the time of year to fire some Sagittarius arrows high into the air and see where they land. Plan ahead and look to 2023.
The best date for setting your intentions for the future is the 28th, when there’s a glorious New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. This would be a good date to go on a trip or learn something new. Note that your planet Jupiter, the traveller & explorer, is also dominant on this date encouraging you to play big.
There is another factor to take into account. There may be key reasons why you can’t get away or enjoy the freedom you’re craving and this may be linked to your work, your routine or your health.
This is because of Mars moving through Taurus from the 5th onwards. Mars in Taurus is safe and steady but can feel stuck. You may have a lot on your plate and you could feel bored, frustrated or restless if too much of your time is caught up with routine matters.
The end of the month could bring a breakthrough thanks to the planet of spontaneity, Uranus. On the 26th, Uranus aligns with the karmic north node in Taurus. This often triggers the wheel of destiny turning.
Admittedly, it could mean that some of your best-laid plans have to change and fast. Yet, it’s exciting planetary energy so be flexible and adaptable and try and take advantage of any new ideas or opportunities that come in. Uranus is linked to freedom and space and it’s going to be hard work if you feel hemmed in.
