Money Matters

One area under the cosmic spotlight this month is money. This is because the Sun is in Cancer until the 23rd, alongside talk planet Mercury until the 11th. Cancer rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope, i.e. money that you owe and money that’s tied up in financial transactions.

There’s often an emotional connection, a pull, especially if money is tied up with an ex or you have children to support. It may help you this month to identify what money means to you, whether you view it as a flow or exchange of energy, whether it’s linked to power or freedom. Dig deep to discover your underlying money motivations and why it’s currently foreground.

Use the Full Moon on July 3rd and the New Moon on July 17th to guide you and signpost your way forward. The Full Moon in Capricorn cuts across the financial axis of your horoscope and is an ideal time to trust your intuition when it comes to money matters. The light of the moon is at its peak and you often see your situation with clarity. It’s a strong date to make a key financial decision.

The theme is stability and security as this Full Moon pulls in steady Saturn and your ruling planet Jupiter in earth sign Taurus. July 1st could bring a stroke of luck your way when Jupiter aligns with both the Sun and Mercury in Cancer. This combination suggests good fortune and, for you, it’s linked to work and money, money and health.

The New Moon falls in Cancer on July 17th and a New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings. This would be the best day to set your intentions around money matters. Set up new financial transactions, ask for money owed and get on top of your finances.

Also, consider what you might need to let go of because Pluto is back in Capricorn and your personal money sector. Plus, on the 10th and 20th, Pluto opposes Mercury and the Sun in Cancer. This could flag up a debt situation or a financial loss.

It may be your cue to stop paying out money and streamline your investments. Who’s in control of your money and where would it benefit you to close the door and move on? Money arouses strong emotions and this is likely to be the case you this month.

Leo Season

It may be Cancer season but there’s a lot of activity taking place in your fellow fire sign Leo throughout July. Leo rules travel, study and any activity that broadens your horizons and expands your world.

This is your domain. It’s where you can explore, seek meaning in life, find adventure and say yes to new experiences. It’s an ideal time to take your chances, do more of what you love and embrace life to the full. 

The planet of love and relating Venus remains in Leo throughout July and passion planet Mars is here until the 10th. In fact, as the month begins, the lovers of the heavens are side by side.

This combination links love and foreign connections. It might be a holiday romance or getting back in touch with someone who lives abroad. If you’re looking to meet someone new, check out someone who’s not your usual type. It might be a teacher or someone you can learn from, and vice versa.

Talk planet Mercury is in Leo from the 11th to the 28th, an ideal time to talk holidays and study courses if you’re not away already. And, the Sun moves into Leo on the 23rd, emphasising the importance of this sector of your horoscope.

Leo rules any area of your life that expands your horizons, including religion, philosophy and spirituality. You might be keen to get published or be in the media. Perhaps, you’re involved in a legal issue. Consider where you want to step out of your comfort zone and do things differently.

There are a couple of provisos, however, as unpredictable Uranus is active on the 2nd and 23rd. Uranus is currently in Taurus and your work and health sector. This is when things may not go according to plan.

Uranus is the disruptor, so be flexible and go where life leads you. If you’re out of work, it would be a good time to take yourself off somewhere new or try something different.  

As a Sun Sagittarius, you don’t find it easy if you’re tied down or restricted. You might be the one making a bid for freedom. Perhaps, you’re ready to stand up for what you believe in and a twist of fate could see you starting out on a new path.

Venus Retrograde

The other major planetary activity this month involves Venus turning retrograde on July 23rd. Venus will remain on go slow until September 4th. Traditionally, this is not the time to marry, invest or have expensive beauty treatments. You’re wise to slow down the pace regarding love, also money. Therefore, make your big decisions before the 23rd.

When Venus is retrograde, your attention turns inward. You can’t hurry love and you’re wise to learn acceptance and tolerance both of yourself and the ones you love. Venus retrograde in Leo is a symbol for learning to love yourself.

Plus, this is your month to follow your dreams and live life to the full. You might recognise that you don’t want to let anyone hold you back. Instead, you want to focus on living your life the way you choose.

Career Goals, Mission & Purpose

Finally this month, action planet Mars enters earth sign Virgo on July 10th where it remains until August 27th. Virgo is the star sign at the peak of your horoscope ruling your career and vocation, your status and reputation. It’s your future path.

This could mean you’re busy with new projects. Virgo rules writing, so this might involve a book, blog or media column. Virgo’s the star sign of order and strategy, so get on top of your job, your projects, the next stage. Journalling could help you find clarity. 

There is always a proviso with planets in earth signs and it’s about keeping your feet on the ground. Also, read the small print if you’re involved in a big deal or promotion. Don’t take on too much, otherwise you could quickly feel overwhelmed. Balance realistic goals with idealistic dreams and ensure you’re able to deliver what you promise. Keep putting one foot in front of the other.

This month you could be on a mission as a strong purpose for change and progress guides you forward. What you want to achieve might not be for your own ends but taps you into something greater. Virgo is ultimately the star sign of service to others and helping to create a better world.

On the 20th, Mars in Virgo is opposed by Saturn in Pisces. This is when you may have to dig deep to get what you want or keep going. Or, it could flag up challenges at home or in your personal life that impact your future path.

Someone at home might block your progress. Or, perhaps you have duties and responsibilities that impact you. Ideally, take a step back and think things through carefully before making a commitment. Sometimes, when Mars and Saturn combine, you have to dig deep and not give up on your long-term goals.

Venus Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts
