July looks like a good month to get things done. Mercury's retrograde is over, and the eclipses won't be coming to visit again until August. Mars and Saturn, and then later Mars and Jupiter, are the only outer planets that will be aspecting one another this month, and that may increase our stamina and willpower. So, write down those goals, and see how many you can check-off before July 31st.
Things will be in the process of change during the first few days of July. Mars will enter Virgo on July 1st, and we may be in the mood to work. The Cancer New Moon is July 2nd, so it will be a good time to invest our energies in our homes and families. Venus will be at a standoff with Jupiter on Wednesday and Thursday, July 2nd and 3rd, and that can bring impractical decisions at the least. There may also be some affairs beginning and extra flirting going on at that time. There could be some sudden sarcastic words said, and some of us may be worrying about nothing on July 4th and 5th. But, the weekend gets better as it goes on. By Sunday, July 6th our thoughts will turn to beauty and romance, so save the Independence Day parties until Sunday.
Things will fire up again by Tuesday, July 8th. The Sun will be out of balance with Jupiter, and this could bring some bad-luck and some extravagant behavior. Also, some projects may turn out to be a waste of time through Wednesday. Mercury will be crossing into Cancer on Thursday, but he will have to fight with Pluto in the process. Jealousy and fear may crop up as early as Wednesday. But, Mars and Saturn will be joining forces throughout this period, and that means mature conduct. "If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;... you'll be a Man my son!" Keep your head (especially Capricorn and Aries), and this event may even bring you blessings.
Loving Venus will enter playful Leo on Saturday July 12th ushering in a sweet weekend. The Sun and Uranus will be singing together bringing new inspirations. By Sunday, Mercury will be winking at Mars and Saturn deepening and energizing our intellects. Work will feel like play for the next few days, or we may find ourselves passionately diving into our personal creative projects. It will be a great weekend for parties, and the feelings will continue through Wednesday, July 16th.
The Capricorn Full Moon will be on Friday, July 18th, at 3:59 AM EDT, and then it will go void of course. So, we are going to be feeling the effects of this Full Moon on Thursday. I said this would be a month to work, and Capricorn represents the hardest worker of the zodiac. Try to finish up projects by Friday, because Mercury will be out of balance with Jupiter on Saturday. That could bring some bad-luck or bad decisions.
The Sun will enter Leo on July 22nd, and Mercury and Uranus will be there to excite and stimulate our minds. July 21st, 22nd, and 23rd will all be great days for social events and making new friends.
The Moon will enter slow and steady Taurus on Friday, July 25th, and Mars and Jupiter will be singing in harmony through the weekend. Enthusiasm will be strong, and our energies will be expanding. But, we will also be very grounded with the Taurus Moon watching over. The Moon will enter Gemini on Sunday, and then the pace will pick up. We may find ourselves accomplishing miracles over the next couple of days. We will be ready for short trips and active conversations through Tuesday, July 29th as the Sun and Mercury join forces.
The month ends with Venus and Neptune arguing, and a solar eclipse one day away. Yes, the eclipses will begin on August 1st! We may not be thinking clearly, and we may be going to extravagance. And... Change is ringing the doorbell. Be a boy scout this month and get prepared. If we wait until the last minute, there is a strong likelihood of mistakes.
