Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
You are building up a head of steam this month which needs a positive outlet. Changes are afoot in your private life as the planets align in the home and family sector of your Solar Chart. You need to avoid family conflict. A home renovation project is the best way to use the planetary energies this month. Pent-up energy can also be spent at the gym or in sporting activities. You may receive a boost to your personal coffers and enjoy indulging in a little retail therapy. The trick is to stay within budget.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Venus, the planet of love, is wending its way through your Zodiac Sign highlighting positive connections with other people and in financial matters. If you have been feeling the pinch lately then July sees you make decisions that move you in the right direction as far as your own self-worth and your loved ones are concerned. You need to stop worrying and focus on people and events that bring emotional satisfaction. Security is not just material. It comes in many forms. A question you could ask yourself this month is: What makes me feel safe and warm?
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Money matters are on your mind. Right now you need to focus on nurturing your own self-worth, emotionally and financially. Money-making projects can reap some positive results. So too can a reassessment of your personal budget. You are unlikely to change professions but may seek a job that pays more. Your focus during July is likely to be on what makes you feel good. You are seeking more fun and frivolity right now, especially when it comes to your connections with other people. The time has come to get a better work-life balance.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Three planets – the Sun, Mercury and Mars – are lined up in your Zodiac Sign at the start of July. This heralds a month that is all about you and your loved ones. Your own health and happiness can be nurtured. It is time for you to take centre stage in your own life. This could literally be getting up in front of others, however, the more timid Cancerians can bask in the comfort of home and family. The choice is yours. This is your month to create a safe haven for yourself and those close to you.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Everyone loves Leos. Right? Usually the answer is a resounding “yes”. This month, however, may see the Leos of the Zodiac attracting different reactions. You are about to reap some karmic payback. If you have been putting your best foot forward then you are likely to receive a boost, favourable attention or perhaps gifts of some description. If not then something or someone may trigger a retreat, a time when you question your own behaviour and perhaps find a need to change it. Contemplation is your first option. Then you can take appropriate action.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Logic and reason are Virgos finest attributes. You have an ability to detach from emotions and analyse situations calmly. This month sees you tested with your ruling planet, the planet of communication, Mercury, in the emotional Sign of Cancer. Emotional encounters in friendship groups need to be tempered with thought. You can enjoy warm and loving activities with your friends, and in groups as long as you avoid emotional upsets. Your intuition needs to be finely tuned. This month also sees your self-esteem, and perhaps your personal finances, receive a boost.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
July sees Librans focussed on finding your true north. This means that it is time to ensure that you are living with purpose and that this intent is reflected in your chosen profession. Opportunities arise for you to nurture any goals connected to your career and parenthood. Change is around the corner as you assess how you invest your time and your money. Metaphysical matters may appeal. On the other hand you may find yourself drawn to the financial markets, and other aspects of life that are connected with cycles. When something dies then something is also born.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
You are destined to connect with people from other cultures or countries during July. This could be news from a foreign country, planning a trip abroad or attending a cultural festival. Your resources can now be utilised in broadening your horizons in a way that uplifts your spirits. If you have always wanted to study something that appeals to your higher mind then now is the time to start exploring. Teaching, religion, science, world affairs, the arts, sports and legal matters are also highlighted. The key is to look for uplifting activities and people to expand your outlook on life.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
It is time to reassess how you invest your time and money. If you have investments then you may need to make changes. If not it is time to make some plans to help provide for your future. You may seek advice from an expert, or you may strike out on your own. Alternative approaches to your finances such as investigating the Law of Attraction might appeal. Book titles about money matters, inheritances, financial markets etc. might catch your eye. Your social calendar is full so make sure that you put aside time to consider these more serious options.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Other people are the focus during July. Partnerships, personal or business, take centre stage. If you are single then perhaps someone close to your home and hearth represents your partner. If you are in a committed relationship then the time has come to focus a little on your loved ones. Business contracts may need some scrutiny. Changes may be required and more commitment may be in the pipeline. There is no rush. The main thing is that you take the time to listen to other people’s needs or proposals and consider your options.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Aquarians usually prefer to connect with the world on a social or intellectual basis. Housework, paperwork and other such mundane matters are not usually a priority. However this month you need to take time out and put your affairs in order. Daily duties may put a dampener on your social life this month. It is time for you to consider the minutiae of your life and complete tasks. Your own health may require a check-up, pets may need grooming, a home decluttered or perhaps some errands need to be completed.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
July sees the Pisceans of the Zodiac birthing something new. This could literally be the birth of a child, or perhaps a new creative project. A new romance may be in the stars. Whatever your scenario the time is ripe for some fun and light-heartedness. You need to find positive ways to lift your spirits and experience joy. You can start by living in the moment much as small children do. If your duties demand the majority of your attention then you can find ways to escape for small periods of time – a ten-minute meditation, a walk on the beach etc. Otherwise think big.
