Till tomorrow, my sweets…..

We hate to leave good company but I have to go make a doctor rich. Gee, stop to think about it, all the doctors I have been to see recently, I bet they are all driving new Mercedes. Oh well, I don’t guess I should complain they are keeping me alive after all.

Have a super Monday and we will see you tomorrow. Till then….

Love ya,

Lady A

The Witches Daily Divination Digest for Monday, July 2nd

Daily Tarot Card for the Day

The Lovers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: choice, decision, love, communication, inspiration (ideas from above)!

Astrological Correspondence: Gemini

The Lovers card is representative not only of crucial life choices, but also of lovers, couples, and other partnerships, like business partners, siblings, and friends. The angel between a woman and a man, depicted on this card, symbolizes the struggle of deciding to follow one’s heart versus one’s temptation or obligation. The Lovers card symbolizes the choices that must be made to progress toward higher self-awareness; choices also reflect emotional values, indecisiveness, hesitation, and our fears about making wrong choices. This applies not only to love relationships – it is applicable to any relationship in which people are drawn together, even a casual one. It’s the card of uncertainty!

Daily Love Tarot for the Day

The Emperor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

 

Your Daily Erotic Tarot

The Judgement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

 

Your Weekly Influences for July 2nd

 

Tarot Influence

Time

You are using your time well. Your knowledge and wisdom are increasing. You may live to see a very ripe old age, or possibly you are developing a relationship or passion that will be long lasting. While this card does represent the solitary pursuit of wisdom, it does not mean your life will be a lonely one.

 

 

 

Astrological Influence

Scorpio

With Scorpio come victory through a forceful inner drive. Scorpio also denotes a high level of sensuality.

 

 

Element Influence

Earth Reversed

Earth reversed denotes a lack of positive connection with the life spirit–a lost soul. If you are not careful you may miss much of what life has to offer you.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for July 2nd

Solitude



Solitude is represented by a single person standing at the end of a boardwalk staring out at a vast, empty panorama. They are truly alone, but may not feel loneliness. They are at a place in their life where the need to withdraw from the our secular world is strong, because their focus should be on their inner self, their morality, and their dreams. The view before them is empty, but it is a canvas on which they may paint their future–a future restricted only by the size of their imagination and courage. For them Solitude is a choice. They chose to take the walkway that distances them from the rest of us. It is also a choice that can be undone. Just as they chose to take a path that leads them away from us, they may choose to turn around and come back at anytime.

As a daily card, Solitude suggest a period in which you need to distance yourself from those around you and explore your inner-self, what is driving your day to day life and decide if you are really on the life path that is best for you. This is a time to revitalize your spirit, and draw your dreams for the future.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 3

Aries

Aries
Aries

You are learning a lot more about your creative side with the North Node of the Moon transiting your solar fifth house this year, dear Aries. Today, Mercury aligns with the Node, and you are inclined to talk about things very dear to your heart or to come across information or announcements that lead you further on this journey of discovery. There is also excellent energy with you today for your work and financial affairs. Work put into building a cherished business or project can be quite worthwhile. You’re bringing progressive thinking to these matters. It’s a good time for improving your skills and finding meaningful ways to be of help and service to others. Even so, the Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, and you’re inclined to tune out just enough that you catch some emotional refreshment. Surprise twists can make life a little more interesting, but if things become too exhausting and you’re able to manage it, grab extra alone time.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

This is a potentially excellent day for nurturing a romance or other warm relationship, dear Taurus, as well as for paying particular attention to a creative project or hobby. There can be news about a personal or private matter that helps you heal or warms your soul. On another level, you may come across information that helps you advance a home-related project. You have increased influence both personally and professionally today. Self-expression comes more naturally than usual, although it’s probably more about positive body language than the words you choose. You may feel especially good if you give back to the community in some way, or help out a friend today. With others, you may discover that common goals, interests, and philosophies are more apparent now. You’re attracting pleasant attention.

 

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

You are discovering just how capable you are these days, dear Gemini, especially regarding your powers to learn, teach, and understand. This is a time for seeking out challenges and pursuing mental interests with confidence. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there when it comes to matters revolving around thinking, the mind, writing, speaking, and sharing ideas. You might come across information that leads you to satisfying projects, or you may benefit from word of mouth today. Even so, you can experience a strong desire to put everything in order, and you can be quite productive. If you tune into the Moon’s presence in your career sector in harmony with the Sun and Jupiter, you can enjoy smooth, natural energy for practical affairs. Your business sense is more developed than usual.

 

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Emotional energy is turned outward with the Moon in your future-oriented adventure sector all day, dear Cancer, and how you manage to direct that energy will largely determine the mood! Try not to stick to a script, as you’re in need of a little more than ordinary or mundane right now, and you’re likely to find it. As well, this is a period in your life for really getting to know what you value and for recognizing your natural talents and your worth. Information received today might point you in either of these directions. If it’s finance-related, it can also be beneficial. Friends and networks can bring excitement or inspiration for a new idea now, and you’re especially receptive.

 

 

Leo

Leo
Leo

Learning to follow your instincts is a big theme this year, dear Leo, with the North Node in your sign. This is a time of self-discovery, and today, you could be meeting people or coming across information that helps this process along. As well, nurturing and building a business project can be fruitful and rewarding. You might particularly enjoy filling in the details of a plan or developing a talent with a goal in mind. There is also a real sense of excitement and progress, even if it’s combined with some uncertainty, related to your business or career goals. With the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, there can be greater self-understanding as well as a sense of inner strength and resolve now.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

With the Moon transiting your partnership sector all day, dear Virgo, there is a comfortable, pleasant feeling of being connected with others. Others’ input can be welcome now, as long as it’s friendly! You don’t have to agree, but what others say may jostle your brain cells, giving you greater insight into what you may need or want, or what your next move might be. Your more helpful and nurturing qualities are in demand today as well. Publishing and promotional projects can be especially successful. You are likely to feel pleasantly attached to people in your life and might thoroughly enjoy nurturing and supporting them. Your appeal runs high, and sharing ideas or viewpoints with someone special can be a bonding experience. This can also be a good day for making connections, whether it’s an actual meet-up with someone from your past or a sudden understanding of a situation that previously stumped you.

Libra

Libra
Libra

With the Moon’s North Node in your solar eleventh house this year, dear Libra, it makes good sense to grab opportunities to improve networking, reach out to others, and enjoy or build friendships. Today can bring one such reminder, possibly even by way of a surprise meeting or contact. You may receive news or information that connects you with people who are to become special to you. There can also be opportunities emerging now to heal or help others deal with complicated emotions. People tend to come to you quite naturally for support, advice, and help, and today is no exception! In fact, you’re giving off healing vibes more than usual now.

 

 

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

There can be a reminder today to set solid goals or work towards achieving an ambition, dear Scorpio, with the North Node of the Moon and Mercury aligning at the top of your solar chart. You might decide to seek out advice or collaboration along these lines. You are encouraged to put more effort into your professional or public life, and you may come across information or meet people nudging you in the right direction. Also today, a relationship is best nurtured with a spirit of openness and acceptance. The Moon in harmony with the Sun as well as Jupiter in your sign today puts you in fine creative form. You’re in the mood to share the happiness!

 

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

This is a strong day for cooperation with others towards an important goal, dear Sagittarius, as well as for nurturing a progressive business or business idea. There can also be connections made that facilitate educational pursuits, travel, or publishing. Even so, the Moon spends the day in your private solar fourth house, and it’s a good day for tending to home and family, your support system, and personal matters. Centering or pacing yourself gets you back on track, and taking special care of affairs at home or from their root leads to better prospects in the long run. Look for opportunities to improve business and finances, but don’t strain yourself.

 

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The North Node of the Moon in your solar eighth house encourages you to embrace new challenges, dear Capricorn, and complicated feelings as well. Today, information or people can point you in the right direction along these lines. For some of you, a financial matter gains clarification now. As well today, you have the Moon transiting your communications sector, reaching out to the Sun and Jupiter. Small, thoughtful gestures go a long way right now. There can be an attraction to someone surrounding their beliefs or ideas, or you may be enhancing a bond with a friend or lover through sharing ideas and listening to one another’s point of view. It’s important to change up the routine a little as you get your business done, as you’re in need of some variety for inspiration.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Family support can encourage you today, dear Aquarius. As well, partnering up with someone and managing your relationships well can be the key to a good mood. Just for the time being, try to ease off your personal goals and plans and take more time to tend to the needs of important people in your life. One-on-one conversations can be particularly beneficial and growth-oriented now. With the Moon in your resources sector all day, however, you tend to gravitate towards activities that ground you. Emotions are settling and balance is sought. With emotions less immediate and urgent than they have been in recent days, you can get the opportunity to regroup.

 

 

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

You might come up with a fabulous idea or flesh out a current plan with a significant someone now, dear Pisces, as Uranus forms a trine to Ceres in your social sectors. Also today, Mercury aligns with the North Node in your work and health sector, and you could meet people, or there could be information coming in, that points you in the right direction to perfect your craft or to perform your job especially well. The Moon spends the day in your sign, connecting harmoniously with the Sun and Jupiter, too, bringing fresh energy to your life and extra sparkle to your personality. The emotional weather is playing in your favor! It’s a particularly dynamic day for learning, sharing, creating, and connecting.

If You Were Born Today, July 2

Happy Birthday 4

If You Were Born Today, July 2

You have great strength of character and have a gift for seeing the value of things. Although you do have a unique perspective on most matters, you can be very stubborn about seeing only that side to a story. You are a natural leader and often seek to have your way, but you are also quite poised and regal in manner. Learning to compromise is important to your success on a personal level. You are passionate in love. Famous people born today: Hermann Hesse, Ashley Tisdale, Jerry Hall, Lindsay Lohan, Margot Robbie.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

Even so, watch for impatience, especially with your communications. You may not always have follow-through when it comes to your projects as you may be experimenting with new ideas and hobbies. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments nevertheless.

You might often get frustrated if results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals. As well, if you are not getting the results you crave, consider that you might be aiming too high or too wide.

If there are health issues this year, look for blockages or constrictions since Saturn is involved with the Node.

This can be an excellent period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier — it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.

Saturn forms an opposition to your Sun in December/January. Saturn calls upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient this month. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary during this period. Pushing too hard will likely lead to frustration and setbacks. Take it easy and work on self-improvement. Results are not immediate, but will eventually come and bring healthy rewards. Relationships may be (or seem) more challenging than usual while Saturn opposes your Sun.

Cooperation brings rewards this year. You can find yourself in high demand during this period, and teaching or guiding can be strong themes in your life this year. With work, you’re expanding your interests in satisfying ways. Do watch for a tendency to communicate impulsively. There can be wonderful excitement in your social life, however.

2018 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what–and who–you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

2019 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, July 2nd

Aries

Aries
Aries

You are inclined to think a lot about an issue today, dear Aries, but may not be any better off for it after much to-do, so think twice about overthinking! It may be better to have a conversation in your head rather than in person first. If you still think it’s a good idea once you have considered all the possibilities, then express it. With the energy of a Mercury-Saturn quincunx active today, imbalances can be a focal point, but this can keep you in a state of limbo and unrest, so aim to make adjustments rather than obsessing over what’s out of whack. It can be challenging to choose the right words or the right approach to fulfill your own needs as well as to satisfy someone but try not to fret over simple timing problems. The Moon’s move into your privacy sector today is a gentle nudge to get extra time for rest and peace.

 

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

It can be challenging and perhaps exhausting to reach a compromise today, dear Taurus, although not impossible! A difference of opinion may become too personal now and may even bring you down for awhile, so it makes sense to focus on something else and let it go. This can alternatively be a time when you feel overwhelmed by family or household activities but can’t quite pull yourself away. The day can be hectic on a mental level and is not necessarily a time when people are acting from the heart, although intentions may be good. Aim to work with the energy of today’s Mercury-Saturn quincunx instead of against it by allowing competition or criticism to motivate you to improve. While it can feel like a one step forward, two steps back kind of energy, you are likely gaining more than you realize.

 

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

There can be a lot to think about today, dear Gemini, but not necessarily any answers, making patience a real virtue. In fact, it may be best to weigh options rather than engage in significant decision-making. Negotiations may not satisfy, as it can be challenging to reach genuine understandings. There may be worries that bring you back to reality or a minor but challenging predicament. Distractions can be notable, mainly related to personal interests, social discourse, and relationships. You could find someone a little insensitive or unsympathetic, and communications can be a little off with Mercury in challenging aspect to Saturn. Or, you might experience blocks to your plans related to fear, worry, or financial realities. This may very well be a nudge to refine and improve your plans or projects. Try not to harp on issues that need more time to mature so that you can more readily enjoy the spirit of progress that’s in the air if you look for it!

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

There may be a concern that brings you down to reality or a challenging choice, dear Cancer, with a Mercury-Saturn quincunx active today. There can be a lot to think about, mainly related to money and valuables or relationship matters, and it’s best to weigh your options rather than force major decisions with these matters today. Negotiations may fail to completely satisfy and possibly could make things worse at the moment. A significant other may seem a little distant, unsympathetic, or disapproving temporarily, particularly if they perceive you as frivolous or carefree. Overthinking today can lead to spending too much time on matters that are moot or that need more time to unfold, so try not to waste your time on irrelevant issues now.

 

Leo

Leo
Leo

Decisions shouldn’t be rushed today, dear Leo. Focus on making adjustments rather than making bold moves today, and you’ll be in a good position. With Mercury in your sign, you are more inclined to live in the head, but today, an awkward aspect can lead you to dwell on the negative. You might be spending too much time on issues that you can’t change, that are not yet fully developed, or that won’t be a concern for very long, and this is a bit of a waste if it doesn’t make you feel good. There can be concerns related to energy levels, work, routines, or health that weigh on your mind but do your best not to overthink for best results today.

 

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You may encounter a need to improve or adjust something you thought was already complete today, dear Virgo, or there could be vague disappointments or waning motivation for something you’ve been working on/towards. Try not to overthink things, though it can be a real tendency now with Mercury forming an awkward angle to Saturn. As well, try to avoid getting too worked up about what others are doing or thinking and keep a lower profile than usual. Obligations can eat up quite a bit of your day, so it makes sense to clear up your duties rather than avoid them as they tend to hang in your aura anyhow. It’s not a time for bold moves but the day is fine for doing some moderate weighing of pros and cons.

 

Libra

Libra
Libra

There can be plenty of interference to deal with today, dear Libra. It’s not an ideal time for decision-making because worries and fears may undermine the process with Mercury in an awkward angle to Saturn. Family obligations or the expectations of loved ones can weigh on your mind, and if you let them assume too much importance, it can be difficult to relax and enjoy yourself. You may be dealing with second thoughts that keep you from coming to a solid conclusion. Goals, ideas, decisions, and projects may suddenly feel overwhelming or could seem a little less “doable.” However, this is temporary, and you might only need to change your plans or adjust time expectations. Don’t worry if something is stumping you since pausing sometimes gives you a chance to notice errors you may have overlooked otherwise. Consider that you may be putting far too much pressure on yourself.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

This is not an ideal day for finding open channels for expressing yourself, dear Scorpio. In fact, you may find yourself in between others’ dilemmas, whether this is about mediating or overthinking problems. Practical issues or duties can feel pressing, and pressures from work, superiors, and family can also figure strongly now. You may be feeling entirely stumped, sensing that you have to make a difficult decision. Worries and concerns can stifle what could have been light and fun conversations. Make a plan for attending to your responsibilities so that you can rest easier, but do watch for speaking about a matter prematurely, especially publicly.

 

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

There may be a situation today that requires cutting your losses and moving forward, dear Sagittarius, or you may be focusing on a matter that simply hasn’t developed enough to warrant so much attention. There can be a part of you (Mercury in your solar ninth house) that is feeling especially free and happy today, wanting to focus on the positive, new, and untried, while another part (Saturn in the second) is worried, feeling guilty, and concerned with practicalities or traditions. A state of ambivalence is not your favorite place to be, so work on choosing a position and owning it, or save a problem for another day. It’s a good time for recognizing the need for adjustments, though, and for making edits and refinements.

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The need to be frugal, a reminder of a responsibility, or a feeling of being limited could undercut your positive outlook or conversations today, dear Capricorn, or may prevent you from getting as close or intimate with someone as you’d like. This is due to Mercury in your intimacy sector forming an awkward aspect to Saturn in your sign today. It can be a thoughtful day, and quite excellent for making adjustments, but if your mind frequently wanders off to negative or stressed places, then it would be wise to treat the source of your concerns. If timing is off in a relationship, try not to take it as a sign of something more profound. A situation may arise today that requires cutting your losses so that you can move on. Your instincts to wait out a particular decision are apt to be correct.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

It’s not exceptionally easy to arrive at definite conclusions or to achieve crystal clarity today, dear Aquarius, so try not to overthink things but do weigh pros and cons now. Communications may be blocked in some way, and you are less likely than usual to share your ideas, possibly second-guessing them. Try to keep a healthy perspective. Sometimes you get so close to a situation that you worry far too much, and this may be the case today with Mercury in awkward aspect to Saturn. You’re inclined to juggle different topics, worries, and concerns, making concentration on priorities a real challenge now. You may find it better to wait out a decision if you’re feeling a little stuck between alternatives, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be productive today. In fact, it can be an excellent day for making adjustments and refinements that benefit you (eventually).

 

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

There can be a nagging sense that you’re not attending to practical details today, dear Pisces, with a Mercury-Saturn influence in play. Responsibilities can eat up a lot of your time, even if you’re only thinking about them, and perhaps especially so, as this way, you may be expending more energy worrying about not doing something than it would take to get it done and put behind you! You may be giving more thought than usual to work and health matters these days, but today, you’re inclined to worry rather than resolve problems, for example. It’s not easy to come to the point of clarity on any one thing today, so it makes sense to do your best with what you have and sort things through one step at a time. Weigh pros and cons but avoid overthinking today.

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for July 2

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for July 2

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

As Mercury now crosses the cusp into vain Leo, others may start to talk about themselves more than usual. Some may even show little interest in who we are or what we are about.

That doesn’t mean you have to join in or become a self-important clone. It does however mean you are entitled to your autonomy and to reveal your true spirit.

 

ARIES

It’s an odd sort of week, when you really don’t know what you want. Well, is it to liberate yourself from the chains of commitment and become a free bird, or not? In fact, the adventure you’re about to embark on, whether single or attached, will take you out of yourself into the magical world of romance.

 

 

TAURUS

You could blame Uranus right now for your confused thoughts.  Yet there is a positive side to all this, and that’s in your thinking. Very soon the negative will flip to something progressive and upbeat. Very soon, Uranus is going to help attract fortunate events, people and experiences to you.

 

 

GEMINI

This week, you realize how to break free from assumptions of how you should live your life.  Whether alone or in a twosome, you’re ready for a big adventure. It may take a while to see the results, but now’s the time to start planning your fabulous future.

 

 

CANCER

This week, partners, lovers or even admirers ‘pick up’ on your vibes. Due to the sun in your own sign, they sense an uncertainty, a frustration, a restless need for anything other than what you have. But the cosmic line-up sows the seeds of fresh possibilities. Your personal renaissance approaches.

 

 

LEO

Discuss in depth what you want to do with your life, and for goodness sake, before you speak, feel what is true for you; before you agree to anything, check if you really mean it; and before you make any promises, ask yourself what it is you truly desire. If single, the lights are green for a positive new and challenging relationship.

 

 

VIRGO

How do you fit into a new lover’s world, and do you have to give up your own? Or, does your current partner simply want to move to foreign shores, and do you want to go or stay? This week’s planetary line-up will expose you to a run of interesting options. Take your pick with care.

 

 

LIBRA

Sometimes you feel that passion and romance are what living is all about. At others you know you have to follow the road of compromise – oh the bane of being a Libran!  Actually it’s time to find a road where you don’t have to justify your behaviour to anyone, and where you still can maintain your personal freedom.

 

 

SCORPIO

This week, it’s time to nurture someone’s wild side and to love them for their spirit and soul as well as your own. However, don’t let them project their inadequacies onto you. Right now, it’s very much in your interests to be centre-stage in their life, but to remain self-assured and dedicated to your joint future.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS

If there’s no theatre in your life, then you don’t feel alive and you can’t love with heart and soul. So flounce a little, or stamp your feet and be challenging, whether in love or not. And very soon, all that romance will fall from the stars, and two worlds truly collide.

 

 

CAPRICORN

Your belief that you must be in control of all aspects of life, doesn’t seem to fit in with the erratic behaviour of others. In fact, this simply confirm that you do have feelings, that you’re not immune to them, and they do need expression. This week, don’t listen to your fears, listen to your desires.

 

 

AQUARIUS

Thanks to a retrograde Mars in your sign, the irritating things that emotions are, keep welling up inside you.  And even if there is only one small piece of the jigsaw puzzle that falls into place, you can slowly begin to recreate the kind of relationship that works for you. This weeks events will reveal what has to change in your love life to make it complete.

 

 

PISCES

We all over-think, and often messages sent out between two people get taken the wrong way. You know what you want from here on in. A place where you have more space and time to do your own thing and accept that others can do their own thing too. Be open, don’t close up on the very things that matter to you.

Your Dark Stars Horoscopes for the Month of July

Dark Stars Horoscope: July 2018

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES
Some tantalising summer possibilities are dangling in front of you. And yet it’s almost impossible to move things along swiftly. Mostly, the reason is other people. Their ideas and abilities may not match yours. It’s also eclipse season (three eclipses between 13th July – 11th August), meaning that hidden information or swerves in direction are almost bound to affect your current plans. If you’re involved with a team or group you’re likely to experience some kind of shake-up by mid-August –  others suddenly arrive, leave, or fall in love and move to another country. With Mars, your ruler, seemingly backtracking until late August, your best bet is to revise and fine tune projects you’ve already begun. If love is on your mind, chilling out is also your most fulfilling path. Some unfinished romantic or family business needs to be concluded this summer, even if that’s just in your own mind. Then you’ll be clear and ready to embrace a new chapter, and perhaps – in time – a new partner too.

TAURUS
Keep an open mind this July, and you’ll hear all manner of fascinating, surprising things. It’s a sociable time, yes, but more than that. A rich brew is bubbling up in your cosmic cauldron – and although you can’t push the river, you’ll notice possibilities, and you’ll sense changes in the air around you. Circumstances at work are shifting, with much going on behind the scenes. Some of this will become clearer by the end of the month when a disagreement at work reveals what needs to be discussed or changed completely. Romantically, too, you’re flirtier than usual – and a social event mid-July could really fizz with a bubbly – even unlikely – attraction. Venus in Virgo from 10th July – 6th August is a beautiful time for you to enjoy friendship, creativity, love and fun, with the 20th – 22nd looking particularly indulgent. Why not focus on these lovely things? They will keep you centred amidst the inevitable ups and downs of July and August’s eclipse season. Important changes are unlikely to be firmed up until early autumn, so don’t stress about things you can’t change.

GEMINI
If you need to be in touch with people, make a presentation, or get your point across please do make hay while the early July sun is shining. Your ruler, nippy Mercury, will be turning retrograde on 26th July – one day before a potent lunar eclipse in your house of travel, study, and mental exploration. What emerges then can alter your plans, or bring unexpected stories to light. Bear in mind that it’s all a work in progress, and matters probably won’t be settled until October.  Meanwhile, magnetic Venus soothes you from meticulous, stylish Virgo – favouring all things close to home, and highlighting your wellbeing and desire for peace and harmony. It’s the season for tuning into art and beauty, while listening carefully to your intuition. That inner voice has a lot to say, and much inspiration to offer you – but just like a river, it needs a channel where it can flow freely. One advantage of Mercury retrograde (26th July-19th August) is that it favours digging deeply into things, reviewing projects, and reworking your ideas. Wonderful results can spring from this quiet, sometimes less-than-glamorous process.

CANCER
You’re a creature of the Moon, and beneath your tenacious, often self-contained exterior, the salty waters of the boundless ocean ebb and flow. The more mysterious side of your complex, lunar personality surfaces in July, for not only is this eclipse season – we’re beginning a series of eclipses in Cancer and your opposite sign, Capricorn, that go on until 2020. July 13th brings a Cancer solar eclipse – so if you feel a little crabby, odd, or sensitive at this time, it’s only natural. Any stand-offs or power struggles in your life could be shaken up now, with new points of view or perspectives emerging. Bide your time, especially if you’re looking for better pay, other financial improvements, or emotional security. It’s tempting to confront others, but you may not need to since their circumstances are likely to be altering as well. Your strength lies in your brilliant grasp of history, and intuitive understanding of how the past influences current events. Once you understand the bigger picture, you can move forwards – cautiously – with confidence. There’s no need to rush.

LEO
The Sun in Cancer shines on your dream life, home life, and subtle feelings of restlessness or curiosity. It’s a helpful time to assess the year since your last birthday, and think about what’s happened – and what you’d like to explore in the year ahead. The Sun enters Leo on 22nd July, meeting Uranus ‘The Awakener’ and energetic Mars for an astrological firework display that lasts several days. Partners, associates, rivals and longstanding friends could all surprise you towards the end of July – or there may be unusual, unexpected offers and events linked with ambition, status, or work. Take it easy, for the Aquarian lunar eclipse on 27th July says something is ‘eclipsed’ or hidden in your world. A Leo eclipse in August is another sign that your wishes and desires are changing. You might want to take off in some bold, new direction. You might completely reassess how you feel about something important in your life. It’s just the start of a phase – you’ll learn more by October. Until then, be aware that others may not be as open (or charming) as you’d like, and try not to over-react.

VIRGO
Magnetic Venus in Virgo can ease your path this July, particularly between the 10th and 22nd of the month. It’s a fertile phase for romance, creativity, or even attracting extra cash. And with Mercury, your ruler, in Leo, plus innovative Uranus in Taurus, your imagination flourishes if you allow it to. You just have to get out of your own way, and ignore that inner critic whenever you hear its whiny, judgmental little voice. Remember, too, that July and August bring some dynamic eclipses, and these will be ruffling feathers and creating changes all around you. Since people often turn to you for help when things get messy, you could be quite taken up with other people’s concerns or news. Try to make time for yourself whenever possible. Mercury turns retrograde on 26th July, just before a very energetic eclipse on 27th July. Cosmic chaos ensues – prompting you to rethink certain plans, or put them on hold for a while. Wise move – things are likely to be uncertain (and others at their flakiest) until early autumn, when a truly fabulous Virgo new Moon (9th September) shines on uplifting news and circumstances.

LIBRA
July is often a busy month for you, as the Sun in Cancer highlights your life direction, status, and hopes for the future. This year you’re questioning quite a few things – from your career direction to your home or current work-life balance. A potent eclipse in Cancer on 13th July shakes the tree for many of you – and what falls out may surprise you. Reserve judgment when and where you can, for you’re unlikely to have all the facts you need just yet. Plus, it’s likely that past events or actions will be having an impact – perhaps an argument you’ve had, a past lover, or a risk you took that hasn’t been as successful as you’d hoped. Venus, your lovely ruling planet, makes some beautiful aspects between the 10th and 22nd – a helpful phase for sorting out money, affection, or your wardrobe. Venus also encourages you to value your wellbeing – and this includes how much fun and laughter you currently enjoy. If your world is all work and no play, you already know what to do.

SCORPIO
Scorpio’s two ruling planets – Mars and Pluto – are currently both rewinding, bringing frustrations, yes, but also a chance to reconsider decisions you’ve made this year. Have you been able to get your ideas across? Or have you expressed how you really feel about something, or someone? Your connections with others – both at work, and in your personal life, are vital this summer. So you may have to wrestle some of your self-protective, secretive instincts to the ground and open up a little more if you want to improve your relationships or professional partnerships, and change them for the better. Unexpected offers, arguments, and deep, beautiful inspirations are part of your summer – so why not stand back a little, and see what washes up on your beach? Trying to control everything will only exhaust you. The Aquarian eclipse (27th) brings much to a head, with unexpected possibilities or encounters flagging up changes in your longer-term hopes and wishes. July can seem discombobulating, but when the mists clear (by October) you’ll be on your way.

SAGITTARIUS
Your upbeat ruler, Jupiter, turns forward again on 10th July. A rush of energy lifts you up, but do pause and consider what you’ve learned in recent months before pushing on ahead. Jupiter is heading for your sign in November, so you could look at part of the summer as a time of preparation for this fortunate event. It last occurred in late 2006 through to late 2007. Yes, sometimes luck seems random, but mostly those stories of overnight success involve a lot of hard work and behind-the-scenes effort before you can claim any glittering prizes. What do you dream you can do? Some positive vibes around 19h – 22nd July open your mind to new possibilities – perhaps linked to a female friend or professional associate. More news or involvement with a like-minded group of people follows. Everyone will be feeling the effects of summer’s eclipses in the atmosphere around us, plus the need to rethink certain plans this July and August. You’ve understood and discovered so much in recent years, so now’s the time to gather all that knowledge together and see what your next steps should be.

CAPRICORN
Inventive or unconventional ideas and individuals can prove to be so positive for you this summer. Your serious ruler, Saturn, is rewinding in Capricorn until early September – underlining your natural tendency to analyse or reassess things. However, Mr. Sensible is working closely with astrology’s Nutty Professor, Uranus, to refresh your ideas – or even open the door for some kind of ‘out of the blue’ event or encounter. Blending your past work and experience with something fresh or experimental is an exciting theme this July and August. Birthdays around Christmas are especially likely to have a creative or romantic boost. Meanwhile, a potent eclipse in silvery Cancer on 13th July is also heralding transformation and change – perhaps for you, or for your partner or someone vital at work. Those changes ripple out into your own life, and on into the year ahead. With so many planets retrograde this summer your famous patience will come in very handy. Just know that, little by little, progress is being made – and keep on keeping on.

AQUARIUS
You’re almost half way through your astrological year.  At this time the Sun in Leo emphasises your partnerships, longstanding friendships, and work alliances. Many of you are about to surprise those people in your life who think they know you best – for your ruler, Uranus, is creating a few fireworks by squaring off with competitive Mars in Aquarius. You’ll be tempted to dig your heels in, or liable to storm off in a huff. Factor in a lively Aquarian eclipse on 27th July, and it looks like you’ll have much to ponder – and certain mysteries to solve. What’s useful about this? It’s an opportunity to rework some good ideas, or create something new from what already exists. If you can control your frustrations, or share your thoughts with some sympathetic, supportive friends, you can balance out the tension and go on to accomplish something positive. By doing so, you’ll show everyone just how inventive and original you can be. Give yourself a break, and allow until October for plans and projects to mature. This summer, patience, tactics, and strategy will be generously rewarded.

PISCES
Your romantic, imaginative spirit is nurtured all summer by fortunate Jupiter and dreamy Neptune. This is wonderfully psychic, musical, and unfettered, but can lead to inertia or over-optimistic beliefs in dubious people, or dodgy lovers. You need to keep your feet on the ground to make the most of it, particularly in early July. So all those tedious little things like good food, sleep, and fresh air cannot be underestimated – they have the power to help you be at your most creative and visionary. Sowing the seeds of love, ideas, or dreams this summer is so worthwhile. These things need time to germinate, and eventually you’ll reap a rich harvest and be able to make more decisive moves in the autumn. Your traditional ruler, Jupiter, highlights a time of exploration and opportunity from November for a whole year ahead. So, like your mutable friends Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius, you’re already on your way to a new and different phase, and the preparations or experiments you try now can help you make the very most of it.

Your Monthly Horoscopes for July

Aries

Aries
Aries

Aries Monthly Horoscope Summary for July 2018: Your personal life is in keen focus this month, dear Aries, and while family or home life are big themes, you’re also finding ways to express and enjoy yourself creatively. This can be an important time for boosting your feelings of security. If you’re in need of a fresh start with family, the cosmos are supporting this endeavor, especially from the 12th forward due to a Solar Eclipse.

Nevertheless, your ruler, Mars, is retrograde all month and most of next month, too, reinforcing the need to take it easy. As well, you’re bound to feel tension related to your larger goals and career or reputation, as this is an ongoing pressure in your life, but you’re learning to find a balance through some trial and error. Most of July is suitable for playful or creative communications, education, flirtations, and exciting learning experiences, but Mercury’s retrograde turn on the 26th can introduce some complications getting your intended message across.

Issues with friends that have been unresolved can become full-blown around the Lunar Eclipse on the 27th, giving you just the right boost to make important changes and resolutions. However, with Mars retrograde in your friend sector and Mercury retrograde from the 26th until August 19th, keep your cool and take your time with important decisions. It may be wiser to resolve old problems than to move into new territory.

July is an excellent time for rediscovering old projects, reorganizing the home, and dealing with past problems in new, empowering ways. This is about your support system as well as the support you give to others. There can be vivid memories and important discoveries. You may be facing up to a neglected area of your life that now seems quite essential to revisit, and you have much to gain in the process. The month is a critical time for getting into deeper touch with your innermost needs and desires.

Support might come from family, and there can be strongly sentimental feelings experienced now. There can be excellent opportunities to expand, strengthen, and enhance family relationships, and on some level, you may very well find peace with your past. There are treasures to be found in the past, in fact, with o much retrograde activity, and you could be finding lost items, uncovering untapped resources, and remembering things that have long seemed forgotten.

Even so, Jupiter turns direct after several months of retrograde motion on the 10th, and gradually, you’ll see improvements or forward motion with your intimate life or finances. You’re more confident about dealing with tricky emotions and complicated problems. Personal charisma increases. This can be a good time for leaving a bad habit behind. It can also augur well for publishing, legal, travel, and educational matters.

Your social life or love relationships can be especially animated and possibly tense at times in July. People can seem a little combative or their communications can be hasty and rough around the edges. Impulsive speech and actions are pronounced at times, and possibly quite disruptive. Pre-existing problems in your relationships or with work can build to a head. Entertain the idea that blocks to plans encountered now can lead you to make substantial, more realistic and reasonable refinements. There can be a “one step forward, two steps back” feel to the month in general, but keep in mind that you’re likely gaining more than is immediately apparent. There are heavy expectations and demands on you, and you need to find some time for a break!

From the 9th, Venus transits your work and health sector and forms especially happy aspects from that position, boosting up your enjoyment of work, duties, and taking better care of yourself. Work matters can thrive, even if it’s not an ideal time for big launches, and you can be especially interested in tackling ambitious projects or working on health goals. You can be quite pleased with work and the little things that you’ve accomplished. There can be pleasure derived from doing a job well done or a sense of accomplishment after taking care of important details. Working or intimate relationships can thrive. You might find it easier than usual to stumble upon the information or resources you need to resolve problems or advance your interests. A giving, generous approach to business and well as intimate relationships can work best right now and might even open doors for you. You may enjoy social opportunities arising from work, services, or the pursuit of health and wellness goals.

The Sun moves into a creative, romantic, and playful sector of your chart on the 23rd, where it will awaken your feelings and desire to share – an influence that lasts a month. On the 25th, however, Mercury turns retrograde in this same sector, suggesting once again that it’s better to look back for inspiration before pushing forward.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th aligns with retrograde Mars, and this can bring some drama to your social life. Unrest with friends and lovers may push to the surface, but you’ll be in a better position to understand what and who you want once the impatience or frustration of the moment passes. Venus and Pluto connect at the time of the eclipse, suggesting that motivation to make needed changes can come through a passionate enjoyment of your work, services, and projects.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Taurus Monthly Horoscope Summary for July 2018: There is a strong focus on learning, communicating, and connecting for you in July, dear Taurus. Your mind is curious, excited, and hungry, and opportunities to feed it are likely to pop up when you need them most! Transportation and communication channels might open up for you, especially from the 4-8 and after the Solar Eclipse on the 12th. You can be exceptionally busy in your daily life. The last days of the month can bring a revelation that prompts you to make important changes in your work. However, with Mars in your career sector in retrograde motion all month, it’s best to focus on what’s already in place than to branch out in new directions.

Attention to home and family matters increases towards the end of July, and any imbalances between personal and professional pursuits become glaring, demanding that a balance is found.

While a retrograde Mercury from the 26th forward may lead to some misunderstandings, you’re nevertheless expressing yourself with special flair in July. If you focus on slowing yourself down, this can be a very rewarding month. You may be turning to past projects and interests rather than embarking on all-new endeavors, and that’s just fine. In fact, it’s a great time for editing, revising, and reviving. You may be discovering new ways of communicating or commuting, perhaps because current ones are not working well.

Jupiter turns direct in your partnership sector on the 10th – a breath of fresh air with so much retrograde activity – and you’re in a better position to see the benefits of partnering going forward, or there could be more helpful, happy, or pleasing people coming (back) into your life. Even with increased family focus as the month advances, your social life is set to grow, too. Moods lift. You can find much joy in feeling part of a partnership or close friendship.

Your communications are likely to be received well. In fact, you may be in the position to offer advice or counsel in the first few weeks of July. Others can benefit from your know-how, and positive feedback can fuel your motivation to do your best. You may be expressing yourself more positively. With a more forgiving and kinder look at situations and people in your life, you could arrive at a nice feeling of peace and freedom. You might long to feel valued by a group or friend, and this can be within your reach now. It’s a good time to team up with a partner.

Tensions for you this month tend to concentrate in your work, with your reputation or with those in authority, and with transportation matters, studies, or belief systems. Controversy might be stirred. You may be tempted to say or do something out of character. Watch for getting too worked up about things that genuinely don’t matter in the long run. Negotiations may not be fruitful with both parties clinging too firmly to their position. Tension may revolve around opinions or how someone is communicating with you, particularly if you feel that someone is trying to overrule you.

From the 9th, Venus moves in harmony with your sign and connects happily with other planets, presenting opportunities for romance, boosted appeal, and leisure. Around the 13-14, the focus should be on bringing a plan or idea down to earth, expressing your affection for others through your reliability, and coming through for others. It can be an excellent time for attention to details and organization with money, studies, and creative projects. The confidence you have with your plans, creative efforts, hobbies, or romantic pursuits is based on realism now, which is the best kind! You can be drawn to pastimes and pleasures that have something to teach you, or you put more effort into the practical side of your hobbies and relationships now. On the 21-22, you have the chance to boost warmth, trust, and good humor in your interactions. It’s a time of personal popularity! You find it motivating when others are putting their faith in you, as you don’t want to let anyone down. Keep in mind that letting go of an outdated dream may very well make room for a new, more meaningful and realizable goal, and this applies to your social life as well as happiness projects or goals.

The Sun’s move to your home and family sector on the 22/23 helps slow you down in a pleasant way as you pay more attention to your personal life and domestic activities.Mercury turns retrograde in this same sector on the 25/26, suggesting that not everything is moving forward according to plan, making it best to take things in stride.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th occurs at the same time as an opposition between the Sun and retrograde Mars. Both events promote new awareness, and both in initially disruptive or dramatic ways! Be cautious when it comes to mixing personal and professional arenas. Misunderstandings can be plenty, and you’ll want to avoid bad press now. Impatience won’t move things forward if they’re not ready to go in that direction, so take some time before making needed changes. Fortunately, a Venus-Pluto trine ties into this eclipse, suggesting that the desire to enjoy yourself more fully can motivate you to make needed changes.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

Gemini Monthly Horoscope Summary for July 2018: July is an excellent month for efforts to build and fortify essential areas of your life, dear Gemini. It’s not a good month for pushing things forward or for important launches, but you can be very productive nevertheless.

In fact, you can be very intent on bringing recent ideas and endeavors to life and building or developing these projects. With a Solar Eclipse in your solar second house happening on the 12th, you’ll be wanting results, but you’re also very willing to put in the necessary time and energy to achieve your goals. While you may be wrestling with funding source problems, sound energy is with you for new sources of, or increased, income from your own efforts not only this month but in the coming six months as well (eclipses have this kind of impact and range!). The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th can point to the culmination of a project or learning endeavor. You also have Jupiter turning direct in July, reinvigorating your interest in health programs and work projects that improve your sense of well-being.

You shouldn’t forget that with Mars retrograde all month and Mercury, your ruler, retrograde from the 26th, you are encouraged to slow down, work things out, draw on patience, and build and develop what you already have in place. In fact, the sooner you accept this kind of pace, the better the rewards!

With so much retrograde activity these days, Jupiter’s direct motion on the 10th can feel especially good. Motivation for your work and health programs increases. Projects that had stalled or were left behind might now resume, pick up speed, or turn a corner. A committed relationship may show signs of forward motion or increased positivity. The next several months are excellent for benefits from work, services, and health. For now, you’re easing forward in these areas — it’s slow but steady.

Overall this should be a calmer, less visible month for you, and it does you some good. You are exploring different ways of building your sense of value and worthiness. There can be renewed hope or optimism about finances or work now. Money issues or sources of income may change, and there can be some reshuffling to do. Ultimately, you could be finding ways to increase your income or your earning potential. Save big launches for later, but work at editing and revising, as these efforts can lead to great things. You might enjoy recognition for past work, and you can quite effectively work on or revive old projects that are likely to have long-term appeal and profitability. There can be important discoveries. There can be some wonderful inspiration and imagination surrounding business and finances this month.

The primary areas of potential challenges or tension for you in July tend to related to support, transportation, communications, and power dynamics. Others may not be giving you the support or feedback you desire at times this month, but do your best to go without. You may surprise yourself with your capabilities. Delays or mixed up schedules can especially grate on your nerves. There may be frustrating issues surrounding transportation and mobility to contend with. Differences of opinion can be a real issue in your relationships, as well. A money problem that may have been weighing you down could reach a turning point. If you’ve been feeling undervalued, frustrations can come to a head. This is an excellent time to let go of some of the need to control things and discover more personal power in the process.

From the 9th, you have Venus gracing your home and family sector and forming some special, fortifying aspects during her stay there. There can be beautiful prospects involving your family or home life now, and there can be increased pleasantness in your routines, work, or domestic world. If you need to repair or refresh relations with family, this is a fabulous time to do so. It’s also a fine time for home decorating, creative work, and relationships with co-workers or employees. Going the extra social mile at home or in your business can be satisfying, and perhaps profitable, too. However, try not to let evasive dreams interfere with your current situation or relationship. A person in your life may have trouble putting faith in a long-term goal if it doesn’t seem realizable, or your uncertainty about your future can put some strain on your family life.

The Sun enters your communications sector on the 22nd, kickstarting a busier, more connected theme in your life. Even so, just a few days later, Mercury turns retrograde in this same sector, and delays can prompt you to reimagine how to get around, communicate, and connect more creatively.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th is a complicated one. Mars is retrograde all month, and it is only during its retrograde periods that Mars forms its opposition to the Sun, every two years or so, and this happens at the time of this eclipse! The temptation may be to push to have your way, when in fact this is an opportune moment to take the time to feel, learn about, and understand your desires and drives. Frustration can center on intellectual planes, so watch for speaking prematurely or making too much of something said. Make safety an critical priority, as impatience can lead to errors in judgment. This eclipse also ties into a fortunate Venus-Pluto aspect, and improving your personal life or relationships with loved ones can be a significant motivator for you to make these necessary changes.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Cancer Monthly Horoscope Summary for July 2018: July is an important month for personal influence and getting your finances in order, dear Cancer. Even with a Mercury retrograde period beginning in the last week of July, the month is also healthy for communications and personal interests. It feels quite natural and necessary to take care of your own needs at this time of year. Clashes in values or conflicts over money may be issues in July, but money matters improve overall.

Two special events in July point to an extra shot of energy and confidence. You’re getting several boosts pushing you into the driver’s seat, not the least of which is a Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 12th — a powerful slate cleaner. Something new begins, and it can feel much like a new chapter in your life story. You are ready to kick bad habits, start fresh, and present a more self-assured “you” to the world. The other is the Sun in your sign forming a grand trine with Jupiter and Neptune. This can be an excellent time for exploring hobbies and other forms of expressive recreation. You are focused on refreshing and rejuvenating yourself, and channels open up for you to do so.

Keep in mind, though, that there are some rather strong factors keeping you realistic and perhaps even slowed down and delayed in July, as well. Mars is retrograde all month, for one, and for another, you have a substantial bit of planetary activity in your partnership sector periodically challenging you via opposition aspects. Relationship problems, likely to do with control or power dynamics, that have been brewing under the surface of things can emerge, sometimes with a lot of force. Look for ways to reclaim personal power by first determining where you’re giving it away!

Finances need a second look with Mercury traveling through your values and resources sector and retrograde from the 26th forward. Matters of ownership can be particularly heavy early in the month, too. It’s a less than ideal time to lend out money or possessions or even to collect on loans. The debts of a partner can frustrate you now, or you might find that a partner is restricting you from spending on things you want. This may alternatively have to do with respect and trust. There can be tensions, but it’s best not to jump into action until you’re in a more reasonable frame of mind. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th is another financial wake-up call. It’s time to take care of your resources. It can also awaken a stronger desire for intimacy as well as previously hidden desires.

There is strong focus on your personality and your plans. Granted, Mars is retrograde all month – a rather infrequent occurrence that can slow things down, particularly in the areas of finances, support, and relationships. Navigating the waters can be a little tricky, but you have plenty of outlets through which to express yourself. New avenues open up to you for exploring different ways of having fun. Especially around the 4-5, you may be reviving old interests and pastimes, as this is a great time for finding treasures in your past. For some, an old romance may be revisited. Your imagination is active, and you can see beyond the ordinary, which lifts you up.

Jupiter’s direct motion on the 10th is very welcome as it ushers in hopefulness and optimism, particularly about a creative project or romantic relationship. Going forward and in the next several months, you’re likely to see some exciting forward movement in love, creative pursuits, recreation, hobbies, relationships with children, and self-expression. Your spirit to enjoy life is building, even if it’s not the time to push forward plans. Keep in mind that Mars will remain retrograde until August 27th, so take things easy.

Venus in your third house (from the 9-10 forward) is making some happy aspects, suggesting pleasant communications, warmth in your connections, and a great love of your personal interests or studies. Improved transportation is possible as well. This is a good time for learning and sharing useful information and ideas. Studies can thrive, and you can be developing skills and gaining knowledge voraciously. Teaching others can be satisfying now, as well. Particularly around the 21-22, you’re in excellent shape for communicating and expressing your ideas (or yourself) creatively. This is also a perfect time for reducing stress through creative expression or by throwing yourself into a fun hobby, the arts, or other forms of dramatic entertainment. Romantic life can improve with conversation and friendly, thoughtful gestures. In fact, you may feel inspired to express your feelings for someone now.

The Solar eclipse in your sign on the 12th sets up powerful energy for asserting your independence and beginning anew. It’s strong for personal reinvention, making a positive impact, education, and relationships with extended family. There can be a big attraction to cultural events and exotic places or activities that take you to new places and expand your mind. There is a lot of action in your 1st and 2-8 houses, and this suggests you’re pushing for your independence and trying to establish yourself in July.

The Moon’s move out of your sign and into your sector of personal resources on the 23rd turns your attention to establishing yourself and getting comfortable. On the 24-25, where you stand regarding school, travel, or communications and learning endeavors may be in question, and this can lead to a feeling of limbo. Your best bet is to wait it out, but be productive as you wait. Mercury is retrograde from the 25/26 to August 19th, and with Mars also retrograde, strong signals to slow down are with you, particularly with money. It’s best not to start brand-new endeavors in almost every field.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 27th aligns with retrograde Mars and can awaken a need to reorganize your finances or stir up feelings about a past relationship. A Sun-Mars opposition occurring now can force a confrontation, or it can put the spotlight on opposing forces related to money, possessions, debts, and ownership. Try not to feel threatened by others’ assertion of their desires. Aim to take a lesson from any issues that may become inflamed now. There is also beautiful energy tied into this eclipse related to studies as well as personal interests and projects that are not only absorbing but that have the potential to transform your life. Talking with someone who shares similar values can be rewarding now.

Leo

Leo
Leo

July 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Leo: While you are in strong demand this month, dear Leo, your inner world is especially important to you in July, and a part of you is likely to remain a little reserved or withdrawn. Interestingly, Mercury turns retrograde in your sign on the 26th, giving you even more reason to reflect and rest rather than push big decisions. Around the same time, though, the Sun moves into your sign and lights up your world. If others are misunderstanding you in the last week of July, you may very well find new ways of expressing yourself that can be especially satisfying.

The Solar Eclipse on the 12th reinforces a need to look within. If you have resisted taking time for reflection or dealing with the past, this eclipse will prompt you to take charge. The Sun moves into your sign on the 23rd, and while you begin to get even more attention, you’re nevertheless still likely to feel hesitant to throw yourself into new situations. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings epiphanies to your personal life and sudden awareness of relationship needs.

July is important for seeking out a balance between doing and resting, and slowing down can, in fact, benefit you. You’ll have opportunities to rise above small problems and gain a sense of peace with the past. You feel at your best now when you let go of frustration or anger, and when you forgive. In fact, it motivates you to be a better person. There can be opportunities to build your faith in yourself and life, in general. Behind-the-scenes matters tend to go very well for you.

There continues to be a strong focus on the past, healing, processing, and digesting, although you seem to come out of yourself as the month advances. From the 10th forward, there can be renewed relationships with loved ones, and projects around the home can resume. Motivation to make happy changes in your domestic life increases now and in the next several months.

Still, there can be some tensions related to pressures related to routines, work, or health. You may feel a lot of pressure to get things done, even if your heart isn’t in it or you are not feeling up to par emotionally and physically, challenging your desire to unwind and relax. You want to do it all, and you can be afraid you’re missing out! Finding a balance is essential. As well, Mars is retrograde in your partnership sector all month. There can be times when others may seem invasive, or you could be annoyed by someone who doesn’t seem to know what they want or is frequently changing their mind.

From the 9th, you’re in particularly good shape for making yourself more comfortable and enjoying yourself. For the most part, your judgment is fabulous for the value of things, and you might enjoy a good buy now. Particularly around the 21-22, there can be welcome money news. You might appreciate a reconciliation or a clarification that brings you closer to someone you love. Gifts could come in, or others seem to be unusually generous with you, and they might even be doting! Domestic security, support, and stability can be important priorities in your life this month. You may be going out of your way to make sure that people you love are feeling content, protected, and wanted, too. Increases in income are also possible now.

On the 22nd, a month-long cycle kicks off in which personal influence is strong and personal plans are on the front burner.

The spirit to create and build is strong in you this month, although there may be some discouragement about reaching your goals, perhaps due to problems gaining others’ support or securing enough funds to move forward, particularly around the 24th.Mercury turns retrograde in your sign on the 25th and will be retrograde until August 19th. Throughout this period, Mars is retrograde in your opposite sign, and a slowed-down, less aggressive approach will serve you best. Mercury in your sign all month does keep you busy and engaged, although sometimes you can feel a little wired. The retrograde period may help you slow down.

A total Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 27th and can be a reminder of others’ needs and perhaps a rather abrupt one. This is because the eclipse aligns with retrograde Mars and the relatively rare Sun-Mars opposition occurs at the same time, pitting will against desire. You may need to take a look at the hard issues in a partnership so that you can later take action to make some crucial changes. For now, sudden moves are not advised. Another influence tied in with this eclipse is excellent for work and money matters, however. Focusing on getting your practical priorities straight can be highly rewarding and even transformative now and in the coming weeks.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

July 2018 Virgo Monthly Horoscope Summary: This is a strong month for your social life, dear Virgo, even if there are some complications to manage. Relationships, in general, are in focus, and for the most part, people are helpful and supportive of you. From the 9th, lovely Venus is in your sign, forming some extra-special aspects, boosting your appeal further as well as your opportunities to enjoy yourself.

Eclipses this month pull up important themes revolving around friendships, group connections, long-term goals, and short-term routines. The total Lunar Eclipse near the end of the month gives you a push to take better care of health, routines, and work. While you’re enjoying more prosperity in your social life, and the Solar Eclipse on the 12th brings a charge of energy to same, this month there may be some concerns, guilt, or confusion that needs to be addressed. This can involve a romance, a personal project or goal, or children. Some of you may have been pursuing a project on your own, and this month, you may realize that you’d benefit most either by giving up a current project or goal, or accepting that you’d be better off enlisting help. The change is likely to be an empowering one, even if there is some resistance at first!

You can feel especially confident about a particular goal or idea now. It can also be a nice time for enjoying your studies or special interest. Others might reinforce or add to your ideas in pleasant ways. The Solar Eclipse on the 12th can herald new beginnings related to friends, group associations, and important ideas and dreams.

There can be good opportunities for conversations particularly about past matters, resolving problems, forgiving, connecting, and giving others the benefit of the doubt. There are also treasures to be found in old projects, studies, and interests. Rethinking some details of recent plans can work to your benefit in the long run, especially afterMercury turns retrograde on the 25/26. From the 26th forward, though, it’s important not to begin brand-new endeavors.

You may be a little fearful of changes or tense about recent developments, and you may be dealing with looming deadlines, health concerns, or scheduling issues. You might also have a strong feeling that work and daily routines are weighing you down when you’d much rather take part in more free-form activities. You might be feeling under-valued, particularly when it comes to work or the contribution you make on a daily basis — the “unseen” things that you do. Tricky problems related to your daily routines or work, or possibly a recurring health matter, can be in focus at times in July.

Friendships and love relationships can be in conflict or competition at times this month. Or, tensions about a relationship can cut into your enjoyment of other things, people, and experiences. You may need to ease off a tendency to micromanage or over-control specific areas of life that are interfering with your growth.

From the 10th forward, motivation to pursue personal interests or studies increases, and this will get even better in the next several months. Family matters can turn a corner as well. You may return to old or abandoned dreams and plans with new excitement.

Your personal appeal and enjoyment increase wonderfully around the 13-14 and 21-22, especially. Your loyalty, reliability, and perseverance are shining now, and people find you particularly attractive for your wisdom and support. This is also a good time to apply yourself to creative work. You may be receiving compliments, gifts, and other fun feedback. There is beautiful natural confidence and contentment in you now that attracts admirers (even more so than usual) as well as favorable circumstances and opportunities into your life. This can be an excellent time for settling differences with others or enhancing relationships that are already sailing along. Particularly around the 24th, however, watch for boundary issues. You may have convinced yourself that someone else’s needs are what you want, too, but this may not be the case! Before you can draw boundaries with others, you have to know them, so do take the time to understand your own, true needs, as you can be so adept at taking care of others that you forget to take good care of yourself.

A month-long cycle in which some form of retreat is helpful kicks off on the 22/23 when the Sun moves into your privacy sector. This is a good time to take things a little easier, enjoy some peace, and reflect on your year. Reinforcing this need is Mercury’s retrograde turn on the 25th. Mercury is your ruler and currently transiting your privacy sector, as well. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings sudden awareness of something that’s not working in the world of your work, daily routines, or health, or the need to make adjustments and meet deadlines.

Libra

Libra
Libra

Libra Monthly Horoscope Summary for July 2018: You have strong influences with you this month encouraging you to reach for the stars and pursue your goals, dear Libra, although it should be kept in mind that July as a whole is not ideal for brand-new endeavors. Taking a second look at past ideas or projects can be particularly rewarding now, or you could find a lot to love with current ventures. You can enjoy quite a bit of enthusiasm about a project, business, or financial matter this month, and hurdles seem smaller as a result! The key to success now seems more about building what you have than taking on new enterprises. Fortunately, you’re incredibly resourceful now.

You are building your confidence in your natural talents, and others are responding well. Many strong influences are occurring in your chart that point to an increased commitment to realizing success, more determination, increased ambition, and the need for more structure and order in your life. These things are helped along with the Solar Eclipse on the 12th. Whatever your particular definition of success, you are seeking it more heartily in July. You might enjoy referrals or other forms of reward and recognition or support.

Past projects or goals may deserve — or require — a second look. There are treasures to be found in the past, but you’ll likely need to approach them in new ways to get them off the ground this time around. Old approaches might be revived now. From the 10th forward, business and financial matters can turn a corner as Jupiter turns direct. Interest and motivation are renewed in certain projects and endeavors, and you feel more confident about pursuing your interests. Feeling content with what you have on financial and relationship levels invites good judgment and patience that lead to success around the 13-14.

From the 9th forward, you have Venus moving through your privacy sector and connecting well with several planets. You’re likely to enjoy some extra private time or rejuvenating activities that help you heal. You may very well break out of an emotional rut or pattern in inspired ways now, as you tend to come at things from a new angle, and perhaps even release a burdensome secret or decide to let go of an attachment that has been dragging you down. Particularly around the 13-14 and 21-22, you’re in a strong position to unblock and decompress. This can be about doing something you genuinely enjoy or resolving to put an issue that has been blocking a relationship or stopping up your emotions behind you.

While there is strong energy pushing you to succeed and fueling ambitions, you have heavyweights Saturn and Pluto tugging at you periodically in July, complicating emotions but also bringing greater punch to your need to purge and release. If you’ve felt that others are attempting to pull your strings, you’ll want to correct the situation with the epiphanies and events of these periods. Try not to resist, fear, or avoid change, which can stir up more problems. Identify where you’ve been overly attached and consider ways to dump unnecessary burdens in your life. This is an excellent time to clean up your life in fundamental ways, particularly around the home. Clearing away problems on the home front can be precisely what you need to succeed elsewhere.

The Sun moving into your solar eleventh house on the 22nd brings new energy into your life that pulls your attention to happiness goals, friendships, and networking for the coming month.

You have Mercury in your friend sector all month, inspiring your connections and communications with others. Mercury does clash with retrograde Mars on the 4-5 and turns retrograde itself on the 25/26, however. There can be some drama with friends, a love interest, or child who may be acting out or hard to understand. There can be distancing in a current friendship or the re-emergence of an old friendship. Try not to take disagreements personally and find ways to set your own pace rather than rely on others, who may not be moving at the right speed for your liking for the time being.

The last week of the month can be a bit of a rollercoaster ride both professionally and personally. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th opens your eyes to your feelings for someone or a current creative project. This eclipse aligns with retrograde Mars, though, and this can bring a social or romantic issue to emotional heights. A frustrating matter from your past can emerge but can be very revealing, and you might begin to figure out the root of recent aggravations. Tensions now can come from pushing something that shouldn’t be accelerated. Matters are inflamed now, but this brings them firmly to your attention. The effects of this eclipse last many months. Epiphanies occurring now are meant to push you forward along a more authentic path. Also tied to this eclipse is an influence that boosts your emotional state and family life. Focusing on home and family projects can be extremely rewarding now.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Scorpio Monthly Horoscope Summary for July 2018: July is an important month for opening your mind and heart to new ideas, dear Scorpio, as well as for finding more meaning in your life. This is a time to explore beyond your usual bounds. A Solar Eclipse on the 12th nudges you to move out and about, particularly on mental levels, but also through new experiences, people, and places, and Jupiter’s direct motion just two days earlier reinforces your confidence to do so. Friendships are in particularly good fortune this month, with opportunities to enjoy yourself more plentiful than usual.

Watch for slowdowns or miscommunications this month, however, particularly on the job and on the domestic front. Even so, don’t pass up on opportunities to redo, review, and strengthen plans and projects – save brand new beginnings for September or beyond.

There can be a strong focus on learning, sharing ideas, publishing, and venturing out beyond your usual bounds this month. While Mercury is retrograde from the 25th forward, and Mars is as well (all month), you have many reasons to be hopeful and frequently enjoy moments when your spirits rise. You’re in good shape for editing and revising, returning to old interests and studies, work on projects you aim to publish, creative works, and partnerships. You may be revisiting old relationships, perhaps only in the mind, and ideally learning from past regrets. You may regain confidence in old plans, ideas, and projects now. In fact, there are treasures to be found in works-in-progress that you may have left behind. However, to make them succeed in the future, you need to approach them in new ways.

The Solar Eclipse on the 12th ushers in good energy for recommitting to plans and projects, as well as for new resolutions to explore, grow, and expand beyond the regular experiences of your life. Romantic possibilities can involve a new location or a person with a very different background than you or possibly including a long-lost friend. Jupiter in your sign turns direct on the 10th, and while July and August are generally slow-moving, you’re getting your mojo back a little faster than most of the other signs! You are looking at the world around you, yourself, and situations with building confidence and positivity. People see you in a particularly favorable light, and you may feel inspired by a special topic, piece of news, or promising opportunity. It’s a good time to get noticed in positive ways — people want to be around you and catch some of the good vibes. Bringing new and inspired energy to an old venture or even a relationship can be particularly fruitful.

The main areas of tension this month seem to relate to home life, family, studies, transportation, and work-life balance. Watch how you express yourself if you’re feeling stressed, particularly around the 4-5, 15th, and 25-26 when rash commentary or actions can be memorable. Impatience can be costly. Balancing your personal and professional lives can be tricky at times now. There may often be moments in July that seem to pit your desire for new experiences against your attachment to your routines. Consider, however, that you may be limiting your growth by sticking too closely to your habits, neighborhood, or home. Watch for so much attention to current projects that you’re not branching out and learning anything new.

Venus transits your solar eleventh house from the 10th forward and connects exceptionally well with other planets, especially on the 11-14, 21-22, and 27th. Shared activities can be especially productive. You can learn something of great value through your networking and studies. It can be an excellent time for personal appeal, friendships, networking, and enjoyable activities. Others are likely to be more gracious and generous with you than usual. Improvements to your life tend to come from your acceptance of yourself.

You are more visible than usual with the Sun moving to the top of your solar chart from the 22nd forward. Keep in mind that Mercury retrogrades in this same sector starting on the 25-26, and while your ambitions are healthy, you may need to look back before moving ahead.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings an epiphany about your domestic or personal life that pushes you to make essential changes. This eclipse aligns with retrograde Mars, and challenging family or home life issues could emerge now. Pay close attention to any emotional slush, anger, or resentment that surfaces now, as it may help you understand some of the tension that has recently been with you. The good news is that whatever emerges now is in full view and this begins the process of working things out. A Venus-Pluto influence tied into this eclipse is powerful for personal transformation through current projects, friendships, and connections.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

July 2018 Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope Summary: More often than not, you’re drawn into your inner world this month, dear Sagittarius, and you’re in excellent shape for making internal changes that can have an influential impact on your life. Shared finances, loans, support, intimate relationships, and profound personal changes are in strong focus much of the month, and to some degree, in the coming six months, with the potential range of the energies of the Solar Eclipse occurring on the 12th.

There is continued emphasis on deeper, more meaningful relationships with others in July. It’s also a powerful time to get into deeper touch with yourself, inner desires, fears, addictions, and vulnerabilities. If there are any insecurities about your ability to stand on your own financially, they are likely to emerge in July. However, don’t let insecurities hold you back from enjoying your life and your relationships. This is a time for working through your issues.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th can bring a learning or transportation matter to a head, and a turning point in your life. Even so, you may need to rework things before pushing a project forward with Mars retrograde all month and most of August.

Because Jupiter is your ruler, as it begins its slow but sure movement in direct motion starting on the 10th, your confidence and faith build. You become clearer about what you want, and by extension, the signals you give off to others are more effective. You are nevertheless in a development stage as Jupiter continues to transit your privacy sector until November when this happy planet will enter your own sign. The need for some privacy and downtime is natural now as you prepare for more outgoing and visible times. Jupiter’s direct motion can help you let go of resentment and challenging problems of the past.

Nevertheless, in a general sense, you are encouraged to slow down and possibly back up in some areas of life this month with Mars retrograde all month and Mercury from the 25-26. You may tune in to this pace faster than most zodiac signs with the help of the concentration of planetary energy in your succedent and cadent houses, including your planetary ruler, as you’re naturally inclined to adjust, build, and observe in July. The trick now is to avoid pushing things that need some more time. Brand-new endeavors may not get off the ground, but work in progress can benefit significantly from your attention now.

There is plenty of planetary support for your ruminations and discoveries, including a Solar Eclipse and a grand trine involving Jupiter and Neptune. Things, ideas, and people tend to surface from your past and draw your attention back to projects and endeavors that might benefit from a new perspective. There can be a healing process going on now, and you are building your faith. Self-improvement endeavors are highly favored, and so are activities that help you unburden. You can feel quite inspired, and family, an intimate relationship, or domestic matters may be integral to this feeling.

You’re in excellent shape for researching and editing. There may be a need to pay stronger attention to what you owe. You may be feeling particularly confident along emotional lines and regarding your private feelings and needs. It becomes far easier to resolve emotional dilemmas or predicaments, or, if not fix, find peace with your problems. You might decide to share a burden, secret, or problem with a trusted someone, or find some other form of satisfying release for issues that have been weighing heavily on you. Intimacy can blossom in July. Your tendency now is to see the hidden layers or elements of a situation to your advantage, as now you know how to work out a problem from the inside out.

Beautiful aspects are connecting Venus in your career and life path sector with your sectors of work, health, routines, wisdom, and finances, setting up valuable opportunities to improve your life, particularly in these areas. You’ll also more easily find satisfying channels for expressing yourself and pursuing your goals. You’re seeking more order and clarity in your practical affairs. You are also projecting your value and worth in effective ways to associates and those in authority, and this can positively impact your income, if not now, down the road. You are selling yourself in your career this month, and you have particular influence with others on professional levels. You’re drawn to experiences that help reinforce your feelings of faith in a person, your talents, or a cause. Others tend to put their confidence in you, and you are motivated to reinforce their favorable opinion of you.

Potential areas of tension in July tend to relate to communications, transportation, and personal finance or issues of respect. Especially on the 4-5 and 25-26, avoid jumping to express yourself if you’re already tense, as much as you might feel the need to speak. Frustrations with errands, paperwork, and other daily life activities can figure strongly. Also, there can be some challenges in relationships or sudden awareness of something that you’ve laid to rest and now need to face. Money matters or power dynamics are probably the hottest topics. Do watch for times when you’re so busy that you fall out of touch with your real needs and wants. Disappointments felt with family or career are best viewed as opportunities to grow as they may very well redirect you to healthier pursuits.

Mercury turns retrograde on the 25/26, suggesting further slowdowns, and then a total Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 27th. This eclipse can be a little tricky with the Sun and retrograde Mars in opposition at the same time. Disorder in your daily affairs, as well as with communications and transportation, can be disruptive now. Watch for impatience that can lead you to trip over yourself. Minor issues can be the trigger, but major issues may be at the root. Consciously try to slow down and to tame your desires, which can seem very immediate and urgent now, but may lose relevance and importance later on. Watch what you communicate at this time.

Fortunately, you have a lovely Venus-Pluto trine making a more significant than usual impact at the time of the eclipse. For you, this suggests that pouring your heart and passion into a work or money-making project can be especially rewarding and successful.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

Capricorn Monthly Horoscope Overview for July 2018:Relationships are in strong focus this month, dear Capricorn, and you’re getting a big chance for a new beginning. A Solar Eclipse occurs in your partnership house on the 12th, prompting you to think about relationship lacks and needs and helping to wipe the slate clean for starting fresh. Sorting out problems and enjoying special moments with people in your life are satisfying activities in their own right, but can positively impact many different life departments as well. Jupiter’s direct turn this month stimulates increasing resolve, which you can use to your advantage to improve your social life and connections to groups and causes.

A revelation about financial matters can emerge in the last week of July. This can also be about your ability to fend for yourself or to support yourself. Changes in income sources may be part of this package, and with Mercury retrograde in your solar eighth at the same time, there could be a dilemma or delay that prompts you to find new ways of bringing in money. Fortunately, you have some prospects, and you can be especially inventive with your practical affairs. However, it’s best to look to works already in progress or old projects and ideas to rework than to begin anything brand new.

Mercury is retrograde from the 25th forward in your intimacy sector, and Mars is retrograde all month, so there can be some complications and challenges to overcome, but overall, this is a good time for exploring feelings and attitudes. The eclipse on the 12th tends to get the ball rolling, but most of the first three weeks of July are nevertheless strong for redefining relationships and relationship needs. Willingness to let someone else take the stage opens up new levels in personal relationships right now, which have a chance to grow. Partnering or teaming up can bring more significant rewards. You are inspiring more trust and compassion is highlighted. Editing and revising are also strongly favored this month.

Jupiter’s direct motion on the 10th contributes to hopefulness about your friendships as well as long-term plans. Essentially, it’s bringing your social life to life! This will be more obvious in coming months, but for now, you’re finding increasing joy in connecting. More and more, group activities and associations reveal themselves as avenues for fulfilling your own goals.

Possible tensions in July tend to revolve around matters of independence, respect, money, and sharing. How a partner is treating you or spending money can be a point of frustration. Try your best not to attempt to mastermind a situation having to do with people and emotions, as Pluto and Saturn in your sign can seem to tempt to you to do.

From the 9th forward, you have Venus moving in harmony with your sign and forming exceptionally harmonious aspects. You’re in excellent shape for showing your worth and integrity without having to go to lengths to prove yourself. There can be a special enjoyment of studies, learning, sharing ideas, travel, and other forms of adventure, however big or small. Networks or friendships can be rich sources of inspiration.

July is excellent, in fact, for connecting with others in affirming, positive, and helpful ways. It’s an excellent time to enjoy cultural or social events, trips, and educational entertainment. Studies can be fun, and you’re drawn to people who are genuine, generous, and honest, and who enjoy similar ideas and interests as you. Most of all now, others are drawn to you with attractive Venus in harmony with your sign and ruler, Saturn.

With Mercury’s retrograde turn in your financial and intimacy sector on the 25th, you would do well to go over old documents or clear up old problems before pushing forward with new projects. There may be delays to deal with, but if so, they’re likely to be blessings in disguise.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th can bring revelations and possible conflicts to the foreground. Money matters can be a big theme now. There can be a tug of war going on with someone (or within yourself) over money, possessions, and matters of control. Whatever emerges now can force a needed change. A Venus-Pluto trine connected with this eclipse suggests a passionate pursuit or interest can be transformative and rewarding now and in coming months.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

July 2018 Aquarius Monthly Horoscope Summary: Nudges to take charge of your work, routines, or health are in focus this month, dear Aquarius. A Solar Eclipse occurs in your sector of self-care programs, daily routines, and work on the 12th, allowing you to wipe the slate clean and start anew. As a result, you have all the motivation you need to make essential changes, and this can be about reorganizing your life, eating and exercising better, managing your time more productively, and working on the details of work, projects, and plans. Committed relationships may be a little distant or complicated from the 26th forward. Your public image begins to elevate as Jupiter turns direct at the top of your solar chart this month, and the work you do now can help improve this opportunity.

Sound energy is with you for solving a work problem or straightening out misconceptions regarding your chores, health, and duties in July. There can be a project, plan, or goal from your past that you’re excited about reviving. Others are seeing your work or services in an especially favorable light. You enjoy helping others, and people tend to be grateful for it. You’re enjoying activities and projects that bring intrinsic rewards.

Attempting to push ahead new initiatives is not advised for now with Mars retrograde in your sign all month. Mars will be retrograde until August 27th, in fact, although it will leave your sign mid-August. This is a time for handling details that may have been missed in the past, reorganizing, clearing up clutter, and attempting to bring more or better structure to your daily life.

With Jupiter’s direct motion from the 10th, you are easing back into a power period for work, recognition, and promotion that lasts until November. Professional and reputation matters gain clarity, slowly but surely. Although it can take a bit of time to get back on track, you are likely to see gradual improvements in these areas. Motivation to pursue a particular course or path, and possibly a business venture, increases in the coming months. While this month and the next are not ideal for new beginnings, you can make significant headway in business or other projects already in progress.

Tensions this month tend to relate to a frustrated drive for independence, slowdowns in communications, and relationship ambiguities. Mercury is in your partnership sector all month, and this suggests you seem to need others’ input to jumpstart your own thinking. From the 25th, Mercury is retrograde in this sector, however, and with Mars in your sign and retrograde, you may very well reach an impasse with a significant someone or experience other forms of misunderstandings or delays. Especially around the 4-5 and 25-26, watch for impatient communications and a self-destructive way of shooting yourself in the foot. Also this month, you could be wrestling with something from the past or insecurities that undermine your performance, which results in occasional choppiness.

From the 9th, you have Venus in your solar eighth house forming especially supportive aspects, however, and you can be especially motivated or enthusiastic about research, a relationship, or passion projects. People are intrigued with you and drawn to you. Someone might entrust you with a secret or show their trust in you in other ways. You might want to take the time to go over financial matters if you can, as your judgment is excellent. Bonding happens less through what’s said and more through friendly gestures, goodwill, and generosity of spirit. This can be a good time for inspiring faith in your relationships and for coming to peaceful agreements about money, power, and sharing with a partner, ex-partner, creditor, or debtor.

The Sun moves into your partnership sector on the 23rd, and your social life assumes more importance to you. Just two days later, Mercury turns retrograde in this same sector, and things may seem slow in the relationship department.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th occurs in your sign and can bring big epiphanies. This eclipse may serve as a cosmic push to change gears in a relationship or to get in touch with your relationship needs. Your true feelings about someone or a matter can emerge powerfully now. It can be a tricky time, however, as the eclipse aligns with retrograde Mars in your sign. There can be difficulties keeping your cool, or you may be feeling blocked and at a loss about how to go about pursuing your desires or fulfilling your wishes for the time being. You can discover strong feelings and desires now that urge you to make changes. Avoid pushing matters, but pay attention to strong emotions that emerge now.

A Venus-Pluto aspect occurs at the time of the eclipse, serving to increase its impact and influence, and fortunately, it’s an excellent aspect for exciting your interest and passion in a project or relationship. A consuming but pleasant endeavor can be motivating and rewarding now.

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

July 2018 Pisces Horoscope Summary: Relating and creating are big themes for you in July, dear Pisces. This is a strong month for exploring creative urges, as well as for sharing your affection, joy, and experiences with others, as you seem to feed off others’ responses. Reconnecting with old passions and hobbies can be in strong focus. A Solar Eclipse occurs in your enjoyment and self-expression sector on the 12th, bringing increased power to areas ruled by this sector, including romance, creativity, hobbies, entertainment, children, and pleasure. You gain more confidence and energy to go after your heart’s desire as well as share and express yourself more freely.

You may be finding new ways to express and enjoy yourself that take you away from certain friends, networks, or groups, or the pressures of a long-term dream or plan or friendship can be strong at times. Some people could be letting you down now. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to people or projects that have been keeping you from expressing your true self, you’ll be feeling the restriction and looking for ways to make changes, and expressing yourself creatively is in focus. As well, if you’ve been ignoring your needs for rest and reflection, you could be feeling especially drained and sensitive around the total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th.

While there are excellent aspects for relationships this month, Mars is retrograde all month and most of next, and slowing down, in general, is vital. This is a time for patience – working on building lasting connections and projects is highly favored. Brand-new endeavors may not get off the ground.

There are some inspiring aspects for the building of motivation and enthusiasm in July, particularly on creative or romantic lines. It’s a good time for sharing ideas with others, rediscovering old interests and possibly even old romances or friendships, and for reviving or editing creative and publishing projects. Your outlook is especially constructive and optimistic, and your goodwill can attract the support, confidence, and cooperation of others. You express yourself comfortably and creatively. There can be a feeling of flowing with, rather than against, the people around you when the Sun in your creative sector forms a grand trine with your rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, from the 4-8. This can be a wonderful time for hobbies and leisure activities.

From the 10th forward, Jupiter turns direct in your solar ninth house after several months of retrograde motion, and you can experience an increase in motivation to pursue your studies, travels, and interests. You may be itching to develop skills. Matters related to publishing, higher education, law, and travel can turn a corner and are in strong favor once again until November when Jupiter will move to the top of your solar chart. Brush up on your skills and make connections until then.

Tensions for you this month tend to revolve around work-rest balance, emotional health needs, and friendships or collaborations. Stress related to work, duties, and service can be an issue. This is not an ideal time for gaining an edge in your job, as you are likely to feel that if you push too hard, you wind up at square one, or worse. Develop strategies for reducing stress or dealing with problem areas so that they don’t fester.

From the 9th, Venus transits your partnership sector, forming especially sweet aspects and bringing opportunities for special enjoyment with a partner or close friend, as well as any other one-to-one connections. Particularly around the 11-12, 13-14, 21-22, and 27, you are in excellent shape for partnering up. You might enjoy an exceptional sense of stability and faithfulness in love and friendship. There is also a spirit of happiness, graciousness, and optimism in your relationships, attitude, and beliefs. Your generosity and openness endear you to others, and people return the favor. Good relations extend to fellow students, your audience if you publish, or a counselor now. Sharing ideas, plans, and visions with someone you care about can be particularly enjoyable. Promotional efforts can bring substantial rewards.

The 23rd brings the Sun into your work and health sector, stimulating extra attention to the functional side of your life. It’s a good time for getting details sorted. Even so,Mercury turns retrograde on the 25/26 in the same sector, and there can be some delays or backing up to do now.

The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th can pull up strong intuition. This eclipse occurs in alignment with retrograde Mars and can push troubled areas to the foreground for your attention. Desires and feelings are intense now. Restlessness with your current routines can be stimulated. Focus on doing your best instead of allowing a lack of direction to interfere with productivity. In time, direction and purpose will reveal themselves! Tame impatience, which can lead to messy situations. At the time of the eclipse, a Venus-Pluto aspect occurs that points you to a passion project or relationship that can motivate you to make essential changes. Support or inspiration from special people in your life can be wonderful at this time.

Cosmic Energy Report: June was a “Calm” month, yet July, well…

Cosmic Energy Report: June was a “Calm” month, yet July, well…

To view more of Lisa’s insight, please visit her at her Facebook page, Lisa Transcendence Brown

At the beginning of June, the message was “Pace Yourselves”… showing us every where we need to re-evaluate our realities, in every way, as it took all deeper into any unconscious programs still held inside, to resolve within, so that the physical can consciously re-configure and re-align.

It was a month of “seeing” where duality, lack, conformity/fear programming still existed, where inner-separation still “slept” and where we allowed this to “play out” in our own physical reality world. It was a month of intentionally shifting our entire reality, to a much higher vibrational, soul-aligned one. It was a month of beauty, peace, magic and resolve…. a “finalization” of many things that we allowed to be real-ity before, that are no longer aligned with our highest consciousness everything…

Where there are still DUALISTIC/SEPARATION/UNCONSCIOUS Programs inside, these continue to be brought to the forefront to be observed/seen, these continue to be a priority for each, to step into their own power, to require that UNITY BE THE ONLY REALITY ACCEPTABLE… yet in order to “do” this, each must be FACED with their own “not PURE love” energy, not respectful energy, not kind and considerate energy, not supporting ourselves and each other AS SOUL Energy, and where there is duality, this will become more extreme, because unconsciousness plays out through ENERGIES of power over, less than/more than, not enough, subtle or blatant manipulation, control and fear-tactics, emotional manipulation (narcissism), threats and more. Just stop, in every moment and observe every part(icle) of your reality, your entire reality and SEE what plays out for you, what your own experiences are… this will tell you everything… the rest is up to you to resolve, shift and expand beyond.

We’ve been “waiting” (not really, as we don’t wait for anything), for this “time” of June, to catapult collectives into this next phase. Why? Because it bring all things hidden into the Light. It makes the Invisible Visible, it shows us what we tolerated as OKay before, that was in no way okay. These Cosmic Frequencies of the 2222 Code, continue to awaken entire collectives, to what IS NOT PURE… “out there” and inside… for this is how all works. The increasing clearing of the Cosmic Akash, in each, within Gaia and our “atmospheres” (inner & outer)… game changers on a whole new level, that continue to accelerate and amplify distortions in every way.

Each is “pushed” to LOOK and actually SEE and take RESPONSE-ABILITY for their own ENERGY and what they keep supporting, allowing, trying to ignore… to PULL EVERY OUNCE OF COURAGE from inside, through their own inner-connection and CHOOSE THE PHYSICAL DIMENSION THEY DESIRE TO ACTUALLY OCCUPY….

REALITY IS SUBJECTIVE… is your mentalities, your beliefs and your ENERGY that transmits these out for each to EXPERIENCE….

OBSERVING what is PERCEIVED AS REALITY… gives each the POWER TO COMPLETELY CHANGE REALITY… in every nano-second…. which is just a small part of how our QUANTUM ABILITIES WORK….

JULY —- begins the eclipses to take each DEEPER INSIDE, to clean house, to dig deep, to connect on a Soul Level and work through, process, resolve all that presents as “not pure love”, “not UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS within and actually MAKE THAT NECESSARY CHOICE….

July — presents all with ALL NEW OPPORTUNITIES… to choose and decide what plays out in the physical to experience…. an old regurgitated one, built on old belief systems that create timeline loop cycles that are allowed to play out until they totally dissolve/collapse… in order for each’s physical body to leave that dimension (eventually or once and for all). July presents all with what they’ve been working for (and HOLDing), on a Soul Level… the next phase or step to support the vastness of HIGHEST DIMENSIONAL REALITIES, that are achieved as each is able to HOLD those states of full consciousness, in order for the physical to re-configure/realign by way of physical matter representation…

July — kicks of a HUGE SHIFT, where each waking up may be scratching their heads, wiping their eyes and find themselves abruptly shocked, shaken or jolted awake…. with NEW REALIZATION that their human aspect didn’t want to/couldn’t yet see, yet as each’s higher aspects emerge from within more, the old unconscious realities are no longer tolerable, allowed and are quickly allowed to just fall away, as each realizes they are not necessary, no longer resonate/align/support where each “is going”…. as each’s PRIORITIES continue to shift and change….

July — accelerates all into whatever each’s focus is. Accelerates atomic codes/DNA awakening, reality re-construction, re-coding with NEW PROGRAMMING that completely replaces the old, outdated, unconscious ones…. The “No more BS” energies continue to INCREASE, where there is ANY DUALITY STILL LEFT…. as each reclaims themselves, their power… the integration of the COSMIC WARRIOR TEMPLATE within Gaia (and each ready for this), amplifies COURAGE on a whole new level…

EACH’S ABILITY to see Reality as a BELIEF… has the power to change their own beliefs. It is that simple, when each is truly ready to embrace how easy QUANTUM EXISTENCES are…. JUST a TUNING of each’s full consciousness to a completely alternate reality, a much different reality, much higher dimensional reality…. and holding THAT as REALity instead, pulling that into the physical, with the amount of “force” (Energy) necessary to “break/dissolve” the energy of the ‘old program’ where it was held within.

Each’s ABILITY to function on a Quantum Level opens up, as linear constructs dissolve. These occur within the brain/nucleus of every cell of our bodies, as the linear constructs of all realities were/are held within. These mega-quantum Cosmic Codes go straight to where those linear constructs existed and re-codes them… on an atomic level, activating DNA re-writes, which work through each’s BODY TEMPLATE, “seeking out” unconscious programs, while simultaneously activating each’s higher consciousness to awaken from INSIDE OF THE BODY, which then reconfigures each’s FIELD OF CONSCIOUSNESS as well. Most are unaware, that all of the codes are inside and outside and BOTH must be activated and enough time/space allowed for the physical body to FULLY INTEGRATE THESE for the re-writing, re-tuning, re-calibration, re-coding, re-everything process to “complete”. (And then we start again, as this is a never-ending cycle of continual integration, that takes immense dedication on all of our parts to honor, acclimate too, so that our bodies can shift, de-densify and vibration into to a much lighter/higher dimensional frequency bandwidth/octave to actually live in. The air we breathe is different here, the vibrations more pristine, the colors… well, off the charts amazing, the inner-actions, the entire physical reality…. so very different than our drabby, life-draining, soul-sucking old unconscious ones.

The human (ego) aspect is never ready. It’s each’s SOUL that is. This means, re-connecting on a DEEP SACRED SOUL LEVEL for everything to easily align and shift.

July will bring MORE… more of whatever supports FULL AWAKENING and REMEMBERING to occur. Every moment, every experience… has a much higher purpose/point (a gazillion of them). Human aspects don’t actually care, they don’t put themselves out there to look out for each other, they don’t step up for hUmaNITY, they don’t share, they hide, don’t support in ways that actually matter, and they live from separation, lack and fear. These Cosmic Frequencies continue to “go for the gusto/gut”, they challenge the human aspect to WAKE UP, they POINT OUT WHERE ALL IS NOT ALIGNED… and they allow each the CHOICE TO CHOOSE… a fully conscious magnificent and magical, beautiful, abundant, loving, kind, compassionate, considerate, harmonic, joyful experience or one of duality, suffering, harshness, not enough… and every unconscious program that each still thinks they believe…

IF YOUR PRIORITY IS FULL UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS… then all will be easy, because this is HOW YOU LIVE YOUR EVERY BREATH and every moment of your lives. You care, truly, you step up, you share, you support, you are kind, considerate and you stop playing in the EGO games still….

July — well, it’s an advancement of our Evolution of Consicousness, Evolution of hUmanity and whatever it takes for each to FIND THEIR HUMANITY… this is what shall present, and continue to present, on every level….

Realities are responsive and not everyone lives in the same dimension anymore. This is a huge realization to wrap your human mind around… your dimensional EXPERIENCE IS YOURS.

AS MORE UNITE… not from a place/space of lack or need, yet instead, fully empowered from within… to combine forces, resources, abilities, ideas, opportunity and share, support each other, our NEW EARTH NETWORK grows…. Yes, it takes us all, not just the ones willing to be visible as the “forerunners”, every one of us…. uniting as DIVINE LIGHT BEINGS, without distortions, without old BS, holding our own and BEING THE ONES…. and together we COMMAND REALITIES with our every breath. As love.

When you stand AS LIGHT and emanate out, stop making excuses for WHO YOU TRULY are, for your accomplishments and for what you do IN-SERVICE for all of hUmaNITY, all gets easier, because you stop compromising anything… ever again. YOU are no longer willing to accept LESS and you no longer live in a fabricated reality in your head that you are not/do not have enough and you stop “just doing enough to get by”… YOU STEP UP and are READY… and this is HOW WE UNITE. ♥

Get ready loves…. This is going to be as SIMPLE or as COMPLICATED as you make it, as easy or as rough as you require/allow, as magnificent or challenging as necessary, dependent on which aspect of you is allowed to be in charge…

This is the week that all starts to align in all new ways… The Solstice was the POINT leading up to NOW. The clearing process, the observation/realization process, the “move the old out yourselves” process…. and now… it’s time to up-shift even more than ever before. I love you! Let’s rock out the awesomeness vibrationally! Quantum Style is how we roll here.

p.s. This is just a very small portion, and in no way, touches on the VASTNESS of all that’s occurring on a Cosmic Level and each dimensional plane of existence. I went offline most of June to accomplish/do and move a lot out of my reality too. WE all have to make SPACE for all new realities to arrive…. I’ll share as I have the Energy to do so. The immensity of our Roles continue to increase and the “demands” require that we all re-group and re-calibrate our own realities constantly so that all can STAY ALIGNED….

p.p.s. I realized the other day, while observing my early days of my body waking up, to share this: Our human aspect was “numb” and parts of us “shut down”. Part of the body awakening to release this, feel fully again… is the “numbness” (metaphors remember), the tingling, as the body wakes up to RELEASE, energy start to move inside, working through the density and immensity of heavy duty programming, the muscles held a lot and go through a rigorous process, the organs, glands, every body part was asleep, held density and must “sleep” to wake up, which is why there is so much sleep to access the other dimensions at first, clear old timelines/body templates, and integrate the ultra-high frequencies of our soul. This can be an ardurous process at times, so be patient, open your minds to alternative understandings and make supporting your own journey/body a priority, however that presents for you. Each phase is different and every moment we are technically in “all of them”, yet the prominent ones will be relative to our own level of consciousness and how much of our Soul we’ve been able to EMBODY and function as, in our every day lives…. for all to be magical, beautiful, amazing… pure peace, love and rainbows too! And yes it can… as each chooses this as “reality”… ♥
