Monthly Horoscope

Overview. The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar fourth house. This is a period of recharge, of getting in touch with your innermost feelings, of connecting with your roots, and of spending more time and energy on home and family. Home and family matters capture your attention and are a strong source of pride now. It’s a time when worldly matters are not as important to you. Use this energy to find ways to improve your family relations and your home environment. During this heart-warming cycle, you would do best to allow yourself to explore your inner needs so that you can nurture yourself and others in a healthy, growth-oriented manner, in preparation for more outgoing times to come.
From July 22nd forward:The Sun illuminates your solar fifth house now. After a period of “nesting”, you are coming out of your shell, ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now. Show off your best colors! You want others to take notice, and you are more sensitive to whether people appreciate you. More than any time of the year, this is the cycle in which you focus on having fun, enjoying romance, and expressing yourself creatively. Your hobbies, leisure time, moments spent with children, gaming time, and so forth, all come into focus at this time of year. This is a cycle in which you find joy in expressing who you are–when your “inner child” comes out to play. This is a time when you are more flirtatious than usual, and when you might take a few risks in life–not only gambling with games but with life itself. You might be a bit of a showman at this time. You are likely feeling good in general, and you tend to spread the joy.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus plays in your solar third house now, indicating a more light-hearted, curious, and intellectual approach to love and pleasure, as well as a more easygoing communicative style. During this cycle you are especially charming in your communications with others. Your words are soothing, and you tend to use words to smooth over problems that you see around you. You are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual. Essentially, you are quite companionable during this cycle. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you see value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. Good companionship is as equally important as romance to you during this cycle. You prefer an intellectual, communicative, and witty partner just now, and your powers of attraction are increased through expressing these types of qualities. You are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport, and you are especially good at mediating conflicts now. If you were to begin a romance or friendship during this cycle, it would likely be quite light-hearted.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters. Occurring in your solar fifth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to matters surrounding romance, children, and creativity. Be as non-judgmental as you can with romantic partners and your children, if applicable. Re-thinking the suitability of your romantic relationships is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. Arguments with a lover may be blown out of proportion far too easily. Both you and your lover should avoid harping on the words used and try to get to the meaning behind the words instead. Or, a romance may not be moving forward in obvious ways. It might seem like stagnation, but it’s actually a period of review and rest. Other possibilities include calls that are not returned, a lover is late for a date, or dates get cancelled. Speculation and gambling are not advised right now. It’s probably not the best time to launch a new creative project, but it’s a good time for reworking an existing one. Same goes for romance! Things will change after Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with romantic partners, and children; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars energizes and animaites your solar seventh house. Partnerships may suffer from ego conflicts, or opposition from others may be challenging. Use the extra energy that Mars brings to this sector of your chart to work cooperatively on relationship problems. You may even find that you seem to need someone’s help in order to do what you want to do during this cycle. Relationships are vivacious and dynamic during this period. When a difference arises, you are quick to settle it, and have little patience for sweeping matters under the rug. Your close personal relationships are lively during this cycle–full of conflicts and resolutions or reconciliations.
Overview Horoscope:
This month, you’re less hung up on the details of your life and you feel decidedly more outgoing and communicative, dear Aries. For some time now, you have been wrestling with all sorts of small but irritating problems, from health to work. While the pace of your life is unlikely to slow down significantly, your area of focus brings you out from hiding in July. This month is expressive and romantic, and your social life is up and down, but at least it is active! Financial gain could come from communications or siblings, and so can love opportunities.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd: The Sun continues to highlight your solar third house–a time of the year in which you are most likely to be a “busy bee”. Communications, short trips, errand-running, and general busy-ness feature now. You could have a finger in many pies, so to speak, as your curiosity is piqued by a larger variety of things than usual. Used well, this could be a period in which you come up with solutions to a number of problems. You are more inclined to take pride in your intellectual accomplishments and/or your ability to socialize and make connections.
From July 22nd forward:With the Sun spotlighting your house of family and home, these areas are your instinctive focus during this period. Your family, home, property concerns, roots, and heritage come into focus and become a source of pride. You are likely quite preoccupied with feelings of security and your inner experiences. This is a time when you send down roots and seek a feeling of belonging. You could be thrust into a position of leadership on the home front. Ego confrontations with family members are possible now, but the best way to handle this energy is to do your best to strengthen your relationship to your family and your home base. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world over the next months, you have a secure place to return to. Besides spending more time tending to domestic affairs, the focus can be on cultivating and nourishing your inner foundations that support you and your growth. This is a time to collect yourself–to fill your well, so to speak.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:Venus continues to grace your solar second house during this period. You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with lovers or children, and regarding financial affairs, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your judgment with regards to personal finances (Gemini-ruled for you) as well as romantic partners and creative endeavors may not be up to par just now, so do avoid “signing on the dotted line”. Speculation is not advised during this cycle. Occurring in your solar fourth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to family relations, real estate matters, and domestic issues. Be as non-judgmental as you can with family members. It may be challenging to keep a healthy perspective regarding deeply personal matters and family. Family members may be on edge, or appear to be. Home repairs may not turn out as expected. Try to put off major decision-making with regards to home improvement, moving, and family matters for the time being. New initiatives surrounding home and property are best left for a better time, but reworking and reorganizing your home can be especially fruitful now.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars animates and energizes your solar sixth house. You have more energy for work and your daily routines tend to speed up during this transit. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. It’s a great time to take charge of your health. You have much energy at your disposal to pick up (or step up) a health and physical activity program. It might be hard for you to work with others in a harmonious manner during this transit, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling especially angry, frustrated, or restless, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can channel excess energy constructively. If health is affected, fevers or infections are more likely.
Overview Horoscope:
Romance settles down this month after a long period of excitement, but also unrest and uncertainty, dear Taurus. Work heats up – it not only picks up pace, it is more demanding on several levels now. While you prefer that all areas of your life are stable and routine, this might help feed your increased desire to make money and accumulate new possessions. Be more cautious physically, particularly from the 17-19. Money-making ideas can come from dreams or from something you remember from the past.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most “financial” period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when “comfort zones” are more important to you than usual–you value the familiar.
From July 22nd forward:The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting “busy-ness” and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it’s a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:Venus continues to grace your solar first house now. Something about how you present yourself, your image, and your manner boosts your personal magnetism during this cycle. It’s a good time to attract who and what you want into your life experience. You’re more charming and you are likely to want to attract things to you indirectly rather than forcefully now, perhaps through charm and playfulness. You have a stronger need to be good to yourself, although a negative expression of this placement can be excessive attention to pampering oneself or taking the easy way out. You especially enjoy making a good impression on others, and peace-making. You might also be paying more attention to beauty and style now.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your personal presentation or image to others and communications with family because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Because Mercury is your sign’s ruler, all of the common Mercury Retrograde issues may apply. Put off making important decisions with regards to family and domestic matters (Virgo-ruled for you) just now, and take care when it comes to communicating with family members. Occurring in your solar third house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to composing letters, emails, making phone calls, and with communications in general. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues with siblings or neighbors, errands could go wrong, you might have trouble getting from point A to point B (example, transportation problems), emails or letters get lost, and so forth. Idle chit-chatting during this period may have repercussions! People might be misunderstanding your words. You may be forgetful during this cycle, and it makes sense to allow yourself extra time to get to appointments, if they are not cancelled in the first place! It would also be wise to double-check your work and communications before sending them off.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars animates and energizes your solar fifth house. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time. You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic. You have a likeably competitive, more energetic, and pleasingly assertive temperament during this transit. However, in some cases, you may be coming on too strong or aggressively, or meeting with aggressiveness in romantic relationships.
Overview Horoscope:
Your life is becoming considerably more exciting, dear Gemini. You are kinder, friendlier, and less focused on minor concerns in favor of the bigger picture. You could learn something surprising about shared resources around the 3rd. You concern yourself less with domestic matters and more with recreation and entertainment. July puts the spotlight on money matters, personal possessions, sensual pleasures, and financial security. Energy levels this month are increasing but still not super high, so take some time out from the busy pace of your life to catch your breath.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to move through your solar first house. You experience a renewal of energy and vitality now, and it’s a strong time for increased personal confidence. The emphasis is on self-expression, what kind of impression you make on others, and beginning new personal projects. You are a little more self-centered than usual, and this is quite natural and healthy as long as you don’t take it too far. You are more decisive and forward-looking now, and you put more faith in your own abilities. Physically, you are likely feeling strong. This is an excellent cycle for making personal changes in your manner or appearance, and for any self-improvement endeavors. Personal projects that you begin now are likely to blossom nine months down the road.
From July 22nd forward:
The Sun highlights your second house now, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you at the moment, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don’t have come into focus–what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to transit through your solar twelfth house now. The twelfth house is a sector of endings, privacy, and mental health, and with Venus here, it’s possible that you are reviewing your feelings for someone, or enjoying a more private love life for the time being. You may not be open with your affections for whatever reason now, and this shouldn’t be a problem—it may be difficult to articulate, verbalize, or intellectualize your feelings for the time being. Doing some soul-searching as well as an enhanced ability to perceive other dimensions in love can lead you to a deeper understanding of your own love needs and possibly of a love relationship. Love might involve some form of sacrifice or simply a lot of giving and lending of support as opposed to receiving during this cycle.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of personal communications in general as well as communications about the past because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your intuition usually serves you very well, but may not be up to par for the time being. Take care when it comes to presenting ideas, writing letters, and any detail work. You may not be seeing the whole picture. Occurring in your solar second house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to new financial initiatives. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues regarding personal finances. Take this time to re-budget instead of making premature purchases. Hold off on decision-making regarding money. Instead, take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, but put off finalizing anything important for the time being. In fact, some money-making ideas or ventures may be put on hold due to circumstances beyond your control.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars activates and energizes your solar fourth house. You have more energy at your disposal for domestic projects or activities. Because your actions are governed by your instincts during this period, you may be especially defensive and protective. You may work hard at making yourself feel more secure, and you may be called upon to take charge on the home and family front. You may have more energy to invest in homemaking, house repairs, re-decorating, or family activities. In fact, if you are feeling very restless, moody, or defensive during this period, it would be a good idea to do any of these things! You may have an increased desire to rule the roost, and if this transit stimulates conflict or disputes, it is likely to be family-related–you may have arguments with them, about them, or on their behalf. You may also encounter opposition from career-related matters or people. You may get worked up about old angers or regarding emotional issues from the past that are resurfacing now.
Overview Horoscope:
July is a power month for you, dear Cancer, but it is also likely to be stressful at times. You have the chance to show your creativity on the job this month. Advances or bonuses may be in the offing in the first week of the month, after which things settle down considerably. Something from your past could resurface this month, but avoid dwelling on it. Instead, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move forward. A partner can have a surprising revelation on the 3-4. Home life becomes more animated and family life demands more of your time.


Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar twelfth house. This is the time to listen to your intuition, to take a break from the hectic pace of your life, and to reflect on what you have learned in the past year. You might naturally retreat a little and take more private time for yourself now. Your physical energy levels may not be up to par for the time being, and this is your body signalling you to take a break. This is not an ideal time for pushing forward with new personal projects and plans. It is better to finish up projects and tie up loose ends now.

From July 22nd forward:
The Sun illuminates your first house now, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It’s a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature surfaces, and it’s time to seize opportunities. Existing problems in your life may be overcome now by bravery and a straightforward approach to your life. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It’s not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It’s time to carve your own path in life.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to move through your solar eleventh house. This is a strong time for putting your ego aside and lowering your defenses and simply enjoying people. It’s a good time for networking and settling disputes if there are differences to iron out with friends. Cooperation comes easily, and warm friendships can be made during this cycle. Personal freedom is especially important to you right now, and you won’t enjoy any associations that limit you. It can also be a good time for earnings from business.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of personal finances, as well as communications with friends or groups, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Major financial initiatives should be avoided. Remember that friends don’t mean what they say and don’t say what they mean, and take what you hear with a grain of salt. Group meetings may be delayed or cancelled. Occurring in your sign and your solar first house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to your body language. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. You may appear uncommunicative and hard to reach, or what you say comes out wrong. This is a time to review the manner in which you come across to others–not so much whether it truly reflects your nature, but more in terms of whether it is working for or against you. Don’t worry too much if others aren’t quite “getting” you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. You might spend more time than usual when it comes to making decisions now, and this is natural. Rushed decisions may be regretted when you change your mind later on.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars animates and energizes your solar third house now. You are likely to have many ideas and plans going during this transit, and you might be inclined to scatter your energies as a result. Channelled well, however, this is a good time to sell your ideas to others, or to present your case in some manner. You may be especially busy running errands and communicating with others now. More articulate than usual, you may also have a more assertive, self-centered, or provocative communication style at this time. As such, discussions might more readily become heated or they might escalate into arguments. If this is the case, it’s likely because you are taking things very personally right now, or because you are over-identifying with your beliefs and ideas. A tendency to be impatient or impulsive while driving or while performing manual tasks, generally with the hands, may lead to accidents, so it’s wise to be careful on the road or while operating machinery or even using scissors! This is an excellent time for working on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion.
Overview Horoscope:
A quieter period in your life is in store until July 22nd, dear Leo, after which life begins to play in your style. The rest and privacy you need is yours at the beginning of July, although there are plenty of stimulating dramas playing out around you. There are no shortage of invitations and things to do – it is more about your ability to pick and choose. Secrets and whispers delight this month, and you may willingly make a few sacrifices to be with a special someone. You meet with perfectionist standards at work, but you are certainly worrying less about money this month.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar eleventh house. During this cycle, you are planting seeds for the future, dreaming up plans that you might begin to develop two months down the road, if they still seem viable then. You are more aware of the benefits of networking, and you might find some great ideas through others now. You might be working in a team now. You could be questioning some of the rules you have been living by and you could be ready to try something totally new. You are more attracted to that which is progressive or unconventional during this cycle.
From July 22nd forward:
The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have–to things, people, and routines–and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It’s not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it’s a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house. Relationships with authority figures, superiors, and with the public are in focus during this cycle. It’s a strong period for diplomatic relations, although a negative expression of this position could be bending over backwards to please rather than positive, friendly relations. It’s a time when being a team player reaps the most rewards, and you may be mixing business with pleasure now. This may be a time when you are especially enjoying your career or position and making the most of it.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your own body language and personal manner (you may feel that others misunderstand you), as well as communications involving the career or public, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. You are ruled by Mercury, so the likelihood of being misunderstood, in general, is high. Put off career decisions as well, as career matters are Gemini-ruled for you. Occurring in your solar twelfth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to privacy matters. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you’re picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. You might unwittingly reveal something that you’d prefer to keep private. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars energizes your solar second house. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself (your worth) to others using money and possessions as the means to do so. If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.
Overview Horoscope:
This month, expressing your uniqueness is especially important to you, dear Virgo, and the need to work cooperatively within the framework of a group of people is likely to figure strongly. Your independent side has been prominent in recent months, but this month, you are softening rough edges. Nevertheless, you are still fighting for your rights, and you are demanding a show of respect. Around the 3-4, a surprising romantic proclamation or revelation could occur. Work matters are more pleasant in July and your drive to improve them further is strong.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar tenth house. Satisfaction and fulfillment during this cycle come from doing your professional best, shining as a responsible and capable person, and contributing to the world in practical ways. You might have a chance to receive acknowledgement or praise for your work or good character now. Landing support from authority figures is easier at this time. Avoid the pitfalls of pride or arrogance standing in your way of success.
From July 22nd forward:
The Sun lights your solar eleventh house. The Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true this month. It’s a sociable sector of your chart, and that’s exactly how you are feeling–happy, light-hearted, cosmopolitan, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off, or at least satisfies. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you’re attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children (especially others’ children) may increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle. It’s a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications involving legal affairs, travel, and education, as well as communications about the past, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. With Virgo ruling your twelfth house sector, somebody might be deceiving you or working against you, or nagging issues from the past may crop up and demand attention. Put off making solid travel plans if possible. Occurring in your solar eleventh house this time, extra care should be used when communicating with friends. You may find that communications with friends or with groups can easily become sticky during this cycle. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may be uncommunicative or giving off mixed signals. On the other hand, old acquaintances may appear during this cycle, or you could be thinking about contacting an old friend. This may be a good time to do so. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends and associates during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
You are able to stand your ground and assert yourself more than usual during this transit. You have energy at your disposal to move your plans forward, and you are more enterprising. You want to leave your mark on the world in some way–however big or small–and you are more able to make an impression than usual. If circumstances are such, you are able to easily fight back. In fact, you may be somewhat combative under this influence, and you may have a short temper. Avoid being pushy. Take charge of your life, but don’t bulldoze over others in the process! This is an excellent transit for assertiveness and physical vitality. Love affairs may also be stepped up during this period. On the rare occasion when an accident occurs, it is more likely to involve the head or face.
Overview Horoscope:
People in your life have been growing accustomed to a more withdrawn and even serious quality to you recently, dear Libra, but with Mars moving into your sign (active until the last week of August), a decidedly more confident and assertive side emerges. Your domestic life demands more attention from you on the 3-4. Recent relationship pressures tend to ease. Receiving news about the past that gives you new information about your current circumstances figures strongly this month, and career matters are likely to push forward as a result.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar ninth house now. This is a cycle in which you seek to expand your experiences and awareness, whether through philosophical thinking, higher education, travel, or simply activities that take you away from your everyday routines. You may feel a little restless if you don’t find ways to explore. It’s an excellent period for looking at your life from a different perspective–a broader one–whether you initiate this process or you make contact with others who stimulate you to think about your circumstances differently. Your energy is strong, open, and friendly right now, you come across well to others, and you are a little bolder and adventurous than usual.
From July 22nd forward:
The Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your “place” or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to move through your solar eighth house during this period. You are attracted to the deeper elements of relationships and social interactions now, rather than what you meet on the surface. Mysteries fascinate you and you could be looking for others’ motives for doing and saying what they do. It’s a good time to feel supported by others, whether it’s financially or emotionally. It’s also a strong cycle for discovering your own hidden talents as well as fascinating things about a partner.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with friends or groups, as well as intimate communications and shared financial resources, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to financial transactions and personal communications with friends, or, better yet, take this time to re-budget or rethink your plans instead of taking premature action. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may seem distant or confused. Occurring in your solar tenth house this time, extra care should be exercised when communicating with the public, superiors, and co-workers. You may find that communications with bosses and co-workers, and concerning professional matters in general, can be tricky during this cycle. Strive to be as clear as possible so that you are not misunderstood when dealing with the public. Put off making definite career decisions as much as possible for the time being. You may be re-thinking matters regarding your life path, which is a good idea, but it’s best to think rather than act for now, as your judgment may be compromised. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with authority figures during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
With Mars moving through your solar twelfth house, this is the time to research and reflect upon your goals. It can be a time when past actions catch up with you–and this is not necessarily a bad thing! It could also be a time when much of your energy is channeled into private matters, or when you prefer that others not observe what you are doing. This is natural–you may just as well do your best work alone for now. Unconscious behavior patterns could influence the way you assert yourself. Some may experience insomnia during this phase, especially if they are not allowing themselves the chance to recoup and if they are not letting their intuition serve them. Others may enjoy a more active dreaming life (this includes day-dreaming), and, if allowed to run free, the imagination can serve them very well, especially with regards to goals and new concepts.
Overview Horoscope:
Partnership matters are moving forward this month, and so are your finances, dear Scorpio. However, you and a partner could go head-to-head mid-month on a financial matter. The intensity of the confrontation could pull out some deep issues that have needed release for some time. It’s likely to push your relationship forward by leaps and bounds. Love is private, intimate, and passionate this month – share yourself with bravery. Accept support if offered, as good things come from others at this point in your life. From the 17-19, watch for indiscretion especially in the workplace.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to highlight your solar eighth house. Your attention turns inward, as well as to close personal relationships on a deeper level. Personal transformations, personal power, and intimate matters fulfill you most during this cycle. There may be a strong focus on other’s money, such as the resources of a partner, inheritance, banking and loans, or taxes. You are more intense in your mood and disposition, and perhaps even secretive, at this time of year. You are more in touch with the deeper and even primal elements of your own personality, and more able to see these things in others. This can be a determined and personally powerful time of year if you apply the energy of this transit constructively.
From July 22nd forward:
This month, with the Sun spotlighting your solar ninth house, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don’t have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with managing everyday affairs and important details.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:Venus continues her trek through your partnership sector. Meaningful and harmonious relationships–both social and romantic–define you during this cycle, affecting your mind, body, and soul. Financial or social success may come to or through your marriage partner at this time. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery works to your advantage! Give to a partner exactly what you would like to receive just now. It’s not about you right now–it’s about someone else close. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. You have a greater need than usual for contact and exchange with an intimate partner. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with bosses or in your career in general, as well as communications with a close partner, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. An argument over joint finances can also get you into hot water. Hold back. Because Virgo and Gemini are on the angles of your chart, you may be especially sensitive to all of the common Mercury Retrograde issues. Occurring in your solar ninth house this time, extra care should be exercised regarding travel or education plans. Delays or complications are very possible in these areas. Go over applications carefully before submitting them and make sure you understand instructions clearly. Expressing your opinions now might come across in entirely the wrong way. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with professors and lawyers as well; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars is energizing your solar eleventh house now. Group activities and cooperative efforts are the best way to achieve your goals right now. In fact, you have all sorts of ideas about what you want to do. Avoid allowing the ego to attempt to dominate others. You prefer to lead a group rather than follow during this period, and there are certainly ways to do so without stepping on others’ toes. As well, the best way to achieve your goals during this period is to work as a team, or to at least to do some networking. You may have more energy than usual to want to organize projects. Your humanitarian impulse may be stimulated. The role you play for other people in your life becomes the focus. You may feel that your schedule gets overloaded at this time with things to do (usually for others).
Overview Horoscope:
Early July is strong for love relationships, flirtations, and your social life, dear Sagittarius. In fact, your social life, which may have been on the dry side in recent months, is picking up pace considerably all month. A partner (business or personal) may be re-visiting old issues that you’d rather forget altogether, however. Money matters that seemed to have been settled in the past crop up again. Tensions about money can rise from the 17-19, particularly involving friends and children. Overall, however, your gracious manner this month attracts positive experiences.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar seventh house–your partnership sector. This can be a time of much learning through the mirror of close relationships. It’s not the time to push your agenda or personal plans forward; rather, it’s a cycle in which you are at your best when you recognize the need to form alliances, to give back to a special someone, and to compromise in order to find some balance in your life. It’s a strong period for putting yourself into another person’s shoes and to better understand him/her. You may be meeting with someone strong and assertive by nature now, or a partner is more assertive and needy of attention. There may be some competitive feelings between you and a significant other now. Focus is on reconciliation, forming or cementing bonds, diplomacy, consultation, one-on-one interactions, and negotiations. You may feel a little drained physically now, temporarily.
From July 22nd forward:
The Sun energizes your sector of transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others’ money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life. This is an excellent time to create a budget or financial plan, or to rid yourself of bad habits that undermine your sense of personal power and self-mastery. All that is deeply personal comes into focus now. Intimate matters are especially important to you during this cycle. Just how well you are handling your life comes up for inspection. Your self-mastery skills and psychological predisposition matter to you more than usual. This is the time of year when you are most desirous of change on a deep level. Clearing out psychic “junk” or ridding yourself of bad habits may be part of the picture now. You are more willing than usual to explore life’s secrets. This cycle brings greater in-depth understanding and an inclination to delve beneath the surface of matters to get to the bottom of them. Research uncovers new material that allows you to develop a better overall picture of the year’s events. This is an especially introspective cycle during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents. On a more practical level, you may be dealing with joint finances and shared resources now more than usual.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month: Venus continues to move through your solar sixth house now. This is a time when beautifying and/or bringing harmony to your working environment is a priority to you. You might find more opportunities to socialize with co-workers, perhaps even meeting a new friend through your work or health routines. You are likely to bring more tact and diplomacy to your relations with the people you work with now. You may not be as productive as usual during this period, as the focus is more on social relationships and pleasure than on getting the job done. Improving health and vitality through pleasurable activities such as massage might be in focus now.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications regarding travels, legal matters, or opinions, as well as communications on the job and with co-workers, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It’s best not to sign on the dotted line for the time being, especially when it comes to making travel plans or any legal contracts. There could be irritating mess-ups on the job. You might be inclined to miss important details in your paperwork, or might experience frustrating delays that result from co-workers’ errors. Travel plans may go awry, or you may have a change of heart. Occurring in your solar eighth house this time, extra care should be exercised regarding any financial initiatives that involve shared resources. Delays are very possible when it comes to receiving support, loans, and taxes. It may be better to side-step arguments with loved ones that revolve around intimacy and sexuality just for now, or approach these matters with more sensitivity if they can’t be left for a better time. Investments made now may not go the way you want them to, particularly those involving joint finances. It may be hard to rely on the input of your partner now, and money you were counting on may not be forthcoming. It’s best to budget rather than spend during this period, and in fact it’s an excellent period for review. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with financial officials and intimate partners; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars animates and energizes your solar tenth house. This transit stimulates your ambition and/or your desire to be recognized for your accomplishments. Whether it’s professional or personal, you are likely to have an increased desire for others to notice you. This can be a good time to become self-employed or start a business if other factors (and Mars itself) are favorable. Conflicts with those in authority are possible now. You may pour more energy into self-promotion or business/career activities.
Overview Horoscope:
Your needs and desires might often seem eclipsed by those of a partner this month, dear Capricorn. Or, in general, your personal needs and plans are on the back burner for now. However, relationships with others require some attention, and playing a supportive role is your best bet for setting things right. All is resolved in your favor by the last week of July–a time when financial matters begin to peak. Recognition–both personal and professional–is likely on the 3rd. Ambitions charge up this month, but watch for impulsive moves and reactions, especially around the 17-19.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun puts a spotlight on your solar sixth house. This is a busy period that finds you tending to many different details of your daily existence–your work, various projects, organization around the home and office, your daily routines, and health matters. Your ego may be especially tied up in the work you do, so that you are proud and more creative than usual in your job. You may be in the position to take charge in your work, or to take charge of your health and diet. Sometimes this cycle relates to increased activities involving pets. You seek to perfect your skills or methods now, and you focus on the parts that make up the whole now in order to improve your daily life. As a result, you can be more critical than usual, but this process is necessary for you to sort out what works for you and what doesn’t.
From July 22nd forward:
The Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on “us” rather than “me”. You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It’s important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to transit your solar fifth house. Your popularity is on an upward trend during this cycle as others find you especially attractive and friendly. You may have the desire to dress well and in good taste. There is strength in your feelings of love and the power of attraction, which may open the door to new romantic relationships. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Conditions are highlighted in connection with young people, and quite possibly a female child–a stronger bond could be formed during this period. You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications regarding intimate and financial matters, as well as communications with children or romantic partners, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It’s not a good time to file your taxes or apply for a loan. Instead, take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, but put off finalizing anything for the time being. Speculation and gambling are not advised right now either. Occurring in your solar seventh house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to negotiations and one-on-one communications. Be as non-judgmental as you can with a partner. There may be the need to revisit old issues in a partnership, or there could be some communication problems with a partner. An ex-partner may resurface during this cycle. Misunderstandings with your partner now can do some damage if you (or your partner) focus on the choice of words instead of the meanings behind the words. If you need to talk through problems, try not to over-react to what your partner has to say. Mixed messages coming from a partner, or a disappointment, could occur now. You may not be as adept at mediating disputes for the time being, but it’s a good cycle in which to reflect upon your negotiation skills with the goal of improving them. Re-thinking a partnership arrangement is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with partners; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars animates and energizes your solar ninth house. During this period, you are especially enthusiastic and more bold than usual. Some restlessness and hunger for adventure is experienced now. Essentially, you are looking to expand your activities, and you may find that you have a lot of energy for higher studies, travel, or simply new subjects. Negative potentials include being excessively opinionated or getting easily fired up over differences in points of view, or legal fights.
Overview Horoscope:
While work demands more than the usual attention this month, dear Aquarius, July brings good energy for breaking out of routines and enjoying yourself more fully. Recently, you’ve been rather content to stick around the neighborhood and to follow the same old routine, but the urge for adventure and experience can arise suddenly early month. Many recent pressures tend to ease for you this month, and this frees you up to explore recreational activities. While romance is favored, a more committed relationship may involve tricky mixed signals from mid-month.

Overview.
The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness
Until July 22nd:
The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar fifth house. This is a time when pleasure-seeking and creative activities come into focus and grab much of your attention. You are particularly personally charming in a spontaneous, natural way during this solar cycle. This is the time of year when you are ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful cycle, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. It’s a good time for recreation, romance, connecting with children, and enjoying and performing the arts. Your ego is tied up in your children, romantic relationships, and creative output now, so that you can be especially proud of these people and things. You can also be over-sensitive about these matters if you feel you are not getting enough appreciation.
From July 22nd forward:The Sun illuminates your solar sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It’s a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It’s time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn’t work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.
Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort
All month:
Venus continues to transit your solar fourth house now. Domestic relationships and the home environment tend to be especially harmonious and peaceful during this cycle. You may have a desire to decorate your home with better quality items or more attention to aesthetics. An inner sense of peace and security tends to dominate now, or the desire for peace motivates you now. Your affections are strong but you don’t wear your heart on your sleeve just now, preferring quiet moments with loved ones.
Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from July 14th until August 8th:
All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with or about partnerships, as well as communications with or about family and home, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It will be important to avoid signing any contracts or making important partnership or family/home decisions during this cycle. Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to work, health matters, and daily routines. Be as non-judgmental as you can with co-workers and/or employees. Re-thinking the suitability of your job is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. Work-related mess-ups can frustrate you, or you might need to redo work that you thought was complete. However, you might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. Double-check your work before submitting it. It’s a fine time for researching health and nutrition programs, as well as job skills and opportunities, but perhaps not the best time for beginning all-new programs. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers and health professionals; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
From the 3rd:
Mars energizes your solar eighth house now. Sexuality and intimacy are stimulated under this transit. Negative expression of this energy is the tendency towards ego conflicts concerning jointly held property or money. Conflicts with partners over values or possessions are possible. Occasionally, this transit could bring a crisis or ending of some kind. Something you hear about now might disturb or touch you deeply. You are likely to be more strategic in your actions during this period, as you become aware of the subtleties of human interaction. This is a time when your best course of action is to recognize that you need, or rely on, others for support.
Overview Horoscope:
You’ve been pouring a lot of energy into relationships in recent months, dear Pisces, and it hasn’t been entirely of the pleasant variety. Announcements can be made on the 3-4 that involve a friend, but this can also be a time that a friendship matter comes to a head. For some of you, your intimate life heats up in July. Although money and power dynamics may still need straightening out, you can experience more excitement and intimacy with a special someone this month. Watch for mixing friendship and money on the 17-19. All month is strong for home decorating and entertaining from home.
