HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF JULY
aries

The month begins with Mars, your patron planet entering Leo on the 1st in the Northern Hemisphere, and the 2nd in the South. For the first time in two years, you’ll be reminded of the importance of priorotising fun and pleasure amidst your many responsibilities.
You might decide to re-ignite an old passion, a hobby or creative outlet. With much of your recent focus being directed toward domestic matters, Mars in Leo may prompt you to strike out in a direction that promotes your own self-interests. More time doing what you love, rather than what other’s want from you may help you reduce any pent-up stress, tension or emotion.
This part of your solar horoscope is also about children. The next 6 weeks may see your focus turn toward little humans, yours, someone else’s, or perhaps your own inner child.
Re-evaluating your experience of joy and personal happiness is highlighted again when Mercury and Mars meet on the 8th/9th. This occurs just as Mercury halts to a standstill before heading retrograde, which may invite some deeper questions about what it means to be happy. This reverse phase of Mercury will bring family matters into the equation from the 19th until month’s end. Thoughts, ideas and desires about children, your home life and/or a romantic situation are likely to feel clearer as August begins.

Themes that struck a chord in respect to your home/work life balance in January will rear their head again under this month’s eclipses. The 2nd/3rd will see a solar eclipse ignite your 4th sector of home, family and lineage. As a North Node eclipse, there is a cosmic push toward nurturing and protecting those you love the most. This might mean having to step down or move away from a work commitment or letting go of a professional responsibility.

This realisation may lead to a final release as the moon grows full on the 16th/17th and aligns with the fated South Node, Saturn and Pluto. With the light of the Moon in your 10th house of career and life direction, you may see what you thought was important differently. With these new insights, a new foundation can be laid in respect to a professional dream or your overall life direction.

Your home environment and your living situation may dominate your energy and focus as Mars moves into Leo on the 1st in the Northern Hemisphere, and the 2nd in the South. Plans or projects that have been sidelined for the last two years may be back on the agenda.

Crossed wires or snafus may ensue as Mars meets Mercury just as Mercury embarks upon a reverse cycle. Together, these planets promise a one step forward, two steps back kind of feel. If a relocation or renovation is underway, allow more time for delays and confusion. Avoid letting small setbacks prevent you from spearheading the changes you feel compelled to make.
July’s eclipses will stir up themes reminiscent of January. Travel or study plans or a bucket list dream may need to go on the backburner, at least for a while. A solar eclipse on the 2nd/3rd may help you establish better routines or paths of self-development first. If there is something you need to know or learn that your future self may thank you for, this eclipse may help you bust through a comfort zone. Be on the lookout for an online course, a weekend workshop or piece of information that may be well worth taking a chance on.
While the eclipse energy is still peaking, your patron planet, Venus will enter Cancer and move toward the eclipse zone. While events probably won’t manifest on the day of the eclipse takes place, a sextile aspect between Venus and Uranus on the 8th/9th may provide a welcome curve ball that will cement your eclipse experience.

As new insights and information are realised, the challenge may lie in relinquishing old perspectives or a dream for the future. A Full Moon eclipse on the 16th/17th may help shed light on the situation and spotlight the way forward. A choice or turning point which may initially feel painful may actually serve to be a blessing in disguise.
You’ll have the opportunity to smooth out any communication issues that peaked early July when Mercury and Venus get together on the 24th/25th. Your sweet words will still pack a punch with Pluto in the mix. Truth, trust and honesty will be paramount for you then.

In fact, much of 2019’s astrology has been geared around you broadening your horizons and seeing what life may have to offer you. If July brings an offer involving your passport, a prestigious posting or the chance to tick off a bucket list item, then the risk will be well worth the reward.

July brings two eclipses that will light up your finance sectors. The first one on the 2nd for Northern Hemisphere readers, and the 3rd for those in the South, offers fresh insights and new beginnings regarding debt, investments, savings or money that you share with a personal or business partner.
Money that you owe is especially highlighted, so you may formulate and kickstart a strategy that will help you reach your dreams of financial freedom. The key to success with this eclipse is to move beyond a comfort zone or switch up the way you’ve always handled debt and/or joint finance. With Venus onside, support, collaboration and togetherness will help you reach common ground.

This doesn’t mean having to tighten the belt to the point where life gets boring. This eclipse will invite you to priorotise where your money goes. Cut back on what doesn’t matter, but spend lavishly on what does.

Energy planet Mars moves into Leo and fires up your big picture dreams as the month begins. You may feel inspired to make travel plans or begin a course of study in an area that has always excited you.

capricorn

July is set to be a dynamic month, where chances are how it begins, won’t be how it ends. You have two eclipses that will activate key zones in your horoscope that symbolise both you and a significant other.
The first, a solar eclipse in Cancer will backlight your relationship zone on the 2nd if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, and the 3rd if you’re in the South. Both your personal and professional relationships will be an area that you’ll need to trust your instincts about. Events may pop up that could cause you to question who is worth your protection, and who is not.

If you’re personal life isn’t exactly how you’d like it to be, the lunar eclipse in Capricorn on the 2/3rd will spotlight the walls you’ve built around yourself. There is a fine line between walls that protect and those that imprison. The days and weeks around this eclipse may bring a situation to a tipping point where you’ll need to choose whether to re-enforce the structures you’ve built or whether they need to be torn down.

The resources you share with others will require negotiation as Mercury starts a retrograde phase in Leo on the 8/9th and then back tracks into Cancer on the 19th. With Mars also entering Leo as the month begins, you might take a more assertive approach to joint finance until mid-August. Mars will clash with Uranus on the 11/12th highlighting that issues with children, a home or a creative project may hit a snag that will demand a compromise.

The 24/25th may bring a fresh round of negotiations which may lead to a sweet deal or settlement, as Mercury and Venus connect. Mercury will still be retrograde, but feathers that got ruffled back in early July may get smoothed over then.
At the same time, Mars in Leo will make a supportive link to exuberant Sagittarius. This planetary play will remind you of the power of keeping the faith and that Spring comes after every Winter.

Your health, wellness and time management protocols are cosmically spotlighted by the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on the 2nd in the Northern Hemisphere, and the 3rd if you’re reading from the South.
You may feel inspired by the New Moon, however eclipses are generally not the most ideal times to start a new health regime or dramatically switch up your routines. If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends, then it will be helpful to rest and listen to the subtle messages your body gives you. If you need more greens, then eat them, if you need more sleep, then have it. If you need to crawl into your shell and escape from the world for a bit, then do it.
This part of your solar horoscope, known as the 6th house, also symbolises the hard work and toil you deal with on a daily basis. If you’re in a job that is beneath your skills and talents, this eclipse may hold the promise of new possibilities. Aligned with the karmic North Node, this eclipse beckons you to break free of the past and risk change in order to realise a dream or goal. First though, you’ll need to rest in order to remember exactly what your dreams are.

The second eclipse on the 16/17th in Capricorn lights up your 12th sector. Another one of your rest and retreat zones, this lunar eclipse may illuminate your need to connect with something spiritual or ancestral. The foundations on which you’ve built your world view have changed over recent years and this eclipse may offer a turning point in the direction you need to go. First though, you’re likely to need to let go of the way you thought things should be, in order to realise the way they could be.

A significant person from the past may appear as Mercury retrogrades through your 7th house of relationships from the 8/9th – 19th. While Mercury and Mars make a rare dance through this portion of your horoscope, the 24/25th brings a connection between Mars and Jupiter. A leap of faith and trusting in what’s possible, rather than what’s probable, can help re-ignite your passions and your dreams for the future.
