There’s a positive feel to your stars as the month begins as a decisive Full Moon on the 2nd links in with Jupiter in one of your money sectors. Jupiter in Gemini brings financial success through joint ventures and to some extent other peoples’ money.
This Full Moon focuses on the work/home divide and how you balance the two. The Full Moon is a time of culmination, even achievement, so hopefully this brings good news or at the very least a sense that you’re on the right path.
Mars your ruling planet is tucked away in your chart in the previous sign of Libra. You benefit now from some down time yourself and if you’re besieged by poor health or worry or doubt, then prioritise your well-being. Mars meets up with Saturn in Libra on the 15th and as Saturn represents blocks or limitation, you may feel overwhelmed by your mind or your inner workings. The key to Saturn is to introduce structure into your life even if it feels like going through the motions. Do what you know is necessary to get yourself on track, and daily affirmations or exercise or routine will help you to feel balanced and healthy.
This month there’s plenty of good news to cheer you up especially with regard to your career, vocation and where you’re heading in life. Mercury, planet of communication has been in Leo and your career sector since late June but last month on July 15th, Mercury turned retrograde. If you have been finding it difficult to make progress with your career or vocational goals, this is the reason why. Often when Mercury’s retrograde, you’re playing a waiting game, information is hidden and you don’t have the full picture. Mercury turns direct on the 8th and this is a green light day which holds real possibility for career news, doors opening and light bulb moments.
In addition, Mercury teams up with Uranus and Jupiter on the 18th and 22nd respectively for the 3rd time. This creates a theme of second or even third chances which can bring the news you’re waiting to hear and help you on your career quest. These are fantastic dates for an interview, meeting, brainstorming and communication in general. Chase up old contacts, look out for a job that turns vacant again and use the network of people involved in your work or your life to help you make progress.
The Sun is shining bright in Leo up at the top of your chart and the 2nd looks glorious when the Sun links up with planet of opportunity Jupiter, plus there’s a New Moon in Leo on the 17th. This all adds up to a positive picture on the work and money fronts and what you put in place now will reap you rewards in the future. A partnership is the key to making progress so turn to a coach or adviser and look at how you can work alongside others to benefit your own business or job.
The best news for you, however, comes on the 23rd when Mars your ruling planet returns to your sign of Scorpio for the first time in approximately two years. This is your Mars return and the signal to be ambitious, to get back in the driving seat and to make things happen. Mars is a powerhouse of energy and determination and if you’ve been at all worried that you’ve lost your motivation, your get-up-and-go is about to return big time and promises success.
When it comes to love and relationships, there’s a foreign theme whether that means a holiday romance or your other half’s away on business. If you’re married or in a relationship, the 15th/16th spell conflict or confrontation for your other half and you may need to be supportive and be there for them. Any relationship needs an emotional connection now and if romance has been lacking, here’s your opportunity to reconnect with the one you love. The 9th and 26th look brilliant for old and new romance alike so seek out your soul mate, someone whose depth and intensity matches your own.
Once Mars is back in Scorpio, your passion returns as well and any distance between you and a loved one begins to fade. Wear your heart on your sleeve and take responsibility for your own life. This month’s stars are about getting rid of what doesn’t work in your life and creating firm foundations and daily disciplines that help you achieve your own personal and vocational goals. Once you get the balance of your life working properly, there’s no reason why you can’t attract the wealth or success you desire and with Jupiter in Gemini until June 2013, you’re building towards something special. Whether love or money is your goal, you will feel back on track by the end of this month.
