Month of July

Aries

As you move into the new month it has been 10 days since the Sun not only left your communication sector but left Jupiter on his own for the first time since beginning his 13 month visit in May. The Moon's return from 3rd July to 5th July is always an important point in any month for getting the communication lines open, but it comes just as a big year for all aspects of communication is getting underway. However, Jupiter won't be on his own for long, with Mars returning on 21st July to begin his first war on communication barriers in two years.

Until then, Mars will be fighting to make the most of his final weeks in your income sector. Before joining Jupiter in your communication sector Mars, who returned to your income sector two weeks after he left, is fighting to exploit the potential from the planet of luck and expansion's 12 month quest for income growth and expansion. Starting the month with the Moon in your income sector will help with that.

Both because this will ensure your nose for money is sharp from the start, and because this will give you a better read on the planets that are already coming together across the income, work and career fronts in the first week of the month. Meanwhile, as is always the case, the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your home and family sector, putting the spotlight on home and family matters, on things close to home and all those rituals and routines that help you feel grounded or bring a sense of belonging. While it is not until 21st July that the Sun will return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, Mercury's return on 3rd July and Venus, planet of love's return on 12th July will get the ball rolling.

As they do, the Sun will continue to make your work/life balance a priority.

Taurus

Mars is not only on the move this month, but he is following in the footsteps of the planets that have gone before him and in the process is picking over the spoils of war. By the time Mars returned to Taurus in May it had been nearly three weeks since your birthday month ended and 14 days since Jupiter left, bringing the foundation year of this new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion to a close. By the time Mars returned to begin a new two year Mars cycle, paths had already been forged and there were options to explore and exploit as he fires up your passions, warrior and competitive spirit.

This is something that Mars will continue to do until he leaves on 21st July. This is when Uranus will be back on his own, with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected quietly keeping things on track and on course. It is then that a month to the day after the Sun left your income sector and while Jupiter has been on his own here for a month, Mars will return for his first visit in two years and his first encounter with the planet of luck and expansion here since 2013.

Mars will return with the drive to fight for what you deserve and to support Jupiter's quest for income growth and expansion. While Mars is only here until early September, with Jupiter here until June 2025, what he can inject will have an impact on the coming year. As has been the case with every planet returning to your income sector this year, a friendly aspect to Pluto in your career sector and to the South Node in your work sector is giving income potential the professional support it needs.

Meanwhile, the Sun, Venus and Mercury all start the month in your communication sector, just as Saturn and Neptune are turning retrograde in your friendship sector. A friendly aspect before each leave will lock in the support that is not only keeping the communication lines open but will make it easier to give the past and unsaid words a voice. In the meantime, while the Sun won't leave and return to your home and family sector until 21st July, Mercury's return on 3rd July will get the ball rolling.

Gemini

By the time you move into the new month it has been 10 days since your birthday month ended, Venus and Mercury had left two weeks earlier and Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion has been in Gemini for four weeks. Having already moved into your new solar year and a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, it should be all about looking to the future, yet there is likely to be a sense that something is holding you back. It might feel like a lack of motivation, procrastination or just a hold that the past may still have on you.

However much you might want to move forward, something is holding you back and for good reason. This is something that needs to be embraced, for as you move into the new month you are also moving into the final three weeks of your current two year Mars cycle. Mars is the planet that gives us our energy, vitality and get up and go and by the time he returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, we are often running out of gas.

This is a time for recharging your batteries and whether your new solar year and new Jupiter cycle have started or not, Mars is putting his foot down. That will change when Mars joins Jupiter in Gemini on 21st July, with potentially life changing implications. Jupiter expands anything that comes into close contact and that includes Mars' passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit.

The last time Mars and Jupiter were in Gemini at the same time was in 2013 and with the warrior planet of the cosmos not leaving until September, this is when every aspect of your life is going to open up. Meanwhile, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of July in your income sector, Mercury here until 3rd July and Venus, the planet of money until 12th July, this could get the month off to a lucrative start. However, this is also the first of a series of stepping stones that will eventually to an opportunity for income growth and expansion in 2025 and 2026.

Cancer

Whether you were born towards the end of June or in July, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of July in Cancer, this is your birthday month and the start of a new solar year. While Venus and Mercury will always travel close to the Sun, they are not always here at the same time and last year Venus had been and gone weeks before your birthday month and new solar year had even begun. The last time that you moved into July with the Sun, Venus and Mercury all in Cancer was in 2016, putting heart and mind on the same page from the start.

Where the Sun is putting the solar spotlight on your options and Venus is focused on what you want from the coming year, Mercury is focusing on the when, where and how. With Mercury leaving on 3rd July, Venus on 12th July and the Sun on 22nd July, this is giving you everything needed to move into the new month and new solar year with confidence. Yet when the Sun left a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart last month and brought your old solar year to an end, he left Jupiter behind and not due to return to Cancer until 2025, the wind down of this current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion will continue.

While this isn't stopping you from moving forward and embracing this new solar year, it is leaving old doors open while making time to hear yourself think and even reconnect with a sense of spirituality even more important. Mars will join Jupiter there on 21st July, beginning the six week wind down of your current Mars cycle ahead of his return to Cancer in early September. Until then, Mars is firing up your passions, competitive and team spirit while getting the month off to an empowered start when it comes to personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building.

Meanwhile, as Mercury, Venus and finally the Sun leave Cancer it will be to begin the first planetary activity in your income sector for the year while kicking off the most lucrative months of 2024. Until now all the focus has been on the other side of the financial fence, with a chance to gain a better balance between money coming in and money going out.

Leo

As we move into the second half of the year the Sun and the faster planets have not only passed through the part of the sky where the major outer planets are located and are venturing into new territory and parts of your chart not active until now, they are also starting to spread out. In particular, at the same time that Venus and Mercury are starting to get out in front of and start to leave the Sun behind, the much slower Mars is dropping back and is now travelling over a part of the sky where they have already been. Mars will spend the first three weeks of July in your income sector and while the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter have all been and gone, he is still fighting to exploit the income potential they have created.

By the time you move into the new month it has been 10 days since the Sun and two weeks since Venus and Mercury left your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking, while it has been four weeks since Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion began his 13 month visit. Until Mars joins Jupiter here on 21st July, apart from the Moon's visit from 3rd July to 5th July, he is on his own. Meanwhile, as is always the case, the Sun will spend the first three weeks of July in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, with the month long wind down of your old solar year underway.

For the first time in eight years, you also start the month with Mercury and Venus here, with Venus taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane while Mercury is giving you a chance to look back objectively. However, while the Sun won't return to Leo to begin your birthday month and new solar year until 22nd July, Mercury's return on 3rd July will begin the first planetary activity in your sign this year. Mercury returns with a chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open while Venus will return on 12th July to start looking at what you want from your new solar year, 10 days before it is due to begin.

Virgo

While this isn't a month of two halves, Mars will be making it seem that way when he makes a dramatic shift in focus on 21st July. Mars is the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos and the planet that gives us our energy and motivation, so no matter where the Sun and the other planets are, this is where our attention is likely to be drawn. With Mars spending the first three weeks of July in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, this will be fuelling a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences.

While the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter all left here in May, Mars is keeping their legacy alive. This will make Mars' departure and return to your career sector on 21st July an abrupt change and especially as he will be meeting up with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion here for the first time since 2013. Until then, Jupiter is making the most of a few quiet weeks on his own, with a chance to regroup after the Sun, Venus and Mercury all left your career sector last month.

It will be a month to the day between the Sun's departure from your career sector on 21st June and Mars' return on 21st July and in that time, there is a chance to settle into what Jupiter is working to make your biggest year for professional growth and expansion in over a decade before things really get busy. Even before Mars' return Jupiter's events around 9th July to 13th July will see a partnership between forces across the income, work and career fronts tighten. Meanwhile, the Sun, Mercury and Venus have moved on and all begin the month in your friendship sector, just as Saturn and Neptune are turning retrograde in your relationship sector.

Before Mercury, the planet of communication leaves on 3rd July and Venus, the planet of love on 12th July and the Sun on 22nd July they will all form a friendly aspect, making the first three weeks of the month especially good for friendship and relationship building but also for both new beginnings and the past and second chances.

Libra

There is a lot of change in the air this month with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all ending the month in a different part of your chart from where they began, four planets turning retrograde. Mercury will spend time in three areas of your chart, with his intellectually savvy and articulate edge having multiple benefits. In the case of the Sun, Venus and Mercury they are all venturing into areas of your chart for the first time this year, with a lot of new beginnings, while Mars is following up the rear to exploit the potential already created.

That is the case on the financial front, with Mars spending his first three weeks of the month in your financial sector. While Jupiter left your financial sector in May, Mars' return just 14 days later gave the warrior planet of the cosmos a chance to piggyback off and exploit his 12 month quest for financial growth and expansion. Where Jupiter was here for a year, Mars only has six weeks with his financial passions and fighting spirit helping to not just exploit the potential Jupiter has created but to take your financial power back.

It is on 21st July that Mars will follow Jupiter into your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, where for the next six weeks he will fuel a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences. Until then, from the Sun's departure on 21st June, Jupiter has a month on his own and not leaving until June 2025, this will be a chance to look to the future as you explore your options before Mars' call to take action kicks in. Meanwhile, the Sun, Venus and Mercury all begin the month in your career sector, just as Saturn and Neptune are turning retrograde in your work sector.

This will see new doors open on the career front just as they open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the job front. Meanwhile, as first Mercury leaves on 3rd July, Venus on 12th July and the Sun on 22nd July, it will be to begin the first planetary activity in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking this year.

Scorpio

While the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars were all closely aligned earlier in the year, it was more a case of the faster Sun, Venus and Mercury catching up and overtaking slower Mars. For a while, this put them side by side but the further into the year we go the more Mars is dropping back while at the same time, Venus and Mercury are starting to move out in front of the Sun and this is having multiple positive implications. On the one hand, by dropping back but crossing the same ground that the Sun, Venus and Mercury have recently crossed, Mars is able to exploit the potential they have created and pick through the spoils of war.

At the same time, by moving ahead Venus and Mercury are able to start exploring new options before the Sun returns to take things more seriously. As far as Mars is concerned, this is having huge benefits on the relationship and financial fronts. Until leaving your relationship sector on 21st July and having returned just two weeks after Jupiter left, Mars is continuing to fight for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you at a time when you will have a good sense of what that is.

It is then that a month after the Sun left your financial sector, Mars will join Jupiter here. By the time Mars returns to your financial sector on 21st July the Sun has been gone for a month and in that time, Jupiter has had time to settle in and for what he is working to make your biggest year for financial growth and expansion in over a decade to take hold. As Mars joins up with the planet of luck and expansion here for the first time since 2013, it is his financial passions and fighting spirit that can help you to fully exploit this.

Meanwhile, while the Sun, Venus and Mercury will all start the month in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery and the Sun won't leave until 22nd July, Venus and Mercury will be gone by then. It is on 3rd July that Mercury will return to your career sector to begin the first planetary activity on the career front this year, followed by Venus on 12th July.

Sagittarius

Mars only returns to your work sector every two years, but the six weeks that he will spend here can be the busiest of the year and not just on the job front, but with anything that keeps you busy or occupies your time. As you move into the new month Mars has been here for three weeks and leaving on 21st July, you are at the halfway point of some of the busiest weeks of the year. What is making this even busier but also more opportune, is that Mars had returned just two weeks after Jupiter left and wrapped up his 12 month quest for job growth and expansion in May.

With the Sun, Venus and Mercury having recently moved through, Mars has picked up from where they left off and has run with it. Starting the month with the Moon here will not only give you a read on Mars' influence from the start but will get the month off to a good start across the income, work and career fronts in a way that is a taste of things to come. Within just the first seven days of the month, Mars will form a friendly aspect to planets on the income and career fronts, drawing on the relationships that the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter have already forged.

When Mars leaves and joins Jupiter in your relationship sector on 21st July the pace should drop back, but with Uranus staying on to ensure things don't go off the boil. By the time Mars returns to your relationship sector on 21st July, apart from the Moon's visit from 3rd July to 5th July, Jupiter has been on his own for a month and after the Sun left on 21st June, giving you time to settle into what he will be working to make your most important relationship year in over a decade. By then you will have a good sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, giving Mars something to fight for from the start.

Meanwhile, as is always the case the Sun will spend the first three weeks of July in your financial sector, shining the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters. While Venus and Mercury will also start the month here, they won't stick around for long, with Mercury returning to begin the first planetary activity in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery this year on 3rd July and Venus on 12th July.

Capricorn

While there are multiple aspects in play this month, as is the case in any month, there are two main camps that will define the month and they are what is happening with Mars and what is happening collectively with the Sun, Venus and Mercury. The year began with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars, the planets that are always on the move, all in the same part of the heavens and all roughly on the same page and focused on the same aspects of your life. Since then, while the lead between the Sun, Venus and Mercury has chopped and changed, they have remained a tight pack and for the first time since 2016, they all begin July in your relationship sector.

However, since then, travelling much slower Mars has dropped back but in the process, he is following in their footsteps. This means that on the one hand, this is a month where Mars is following up in the rear and in the footprints they and Jupiter have left, with a chance to exploit the potential already created. At the same time, the Sun, Venus and Mercury are moving into new areas in order to open up new opportunities, that Mars will eventually exploit later in the year.

Until leaving your romantic and creative sector on 21st July, Mars is exploiting the potential already created, including from Jupiter's 12 month visit that ended just two weeks before he returned. It is then that a month after the Sun left your work sector on 21st June that Mars will return to begin what could be the busiest six weeks of any year. It has been two years since Mars was last here, with his work passions, fighting and competitive spirit joining up with Jupiter's 12 month quest for job growth and expansion.

Because the Sun, Venus and Mercury all left last month and start the month in your relationship sector, there are plenty of options to explore and exploit. Meanwhile, while there is a chance to focus on your relationships for the first time this year, Mercury will leave and return to begin the first planetary activity in your financial sector this year on 3rd July, followed by Venus, the planet of money on 12th July.

Aquarius

With Mars following up the rear and in the footsteps of not just the Sun, Venus and Mercury but of Jupiter as well, he is having a lot more impact than had he been out in front. Mars is the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos and moving through after a parade of planets has moved through, allows him to exploit the potential this has created and to pick through the spoils of war for hidden and missed treasure and opportunities. Until leaving your home and family sector on 21st July Mars is doing just that.

While the Sun, Mercury and Venus have already moved through, something that has left you aware, motivated and with plenty of ideas, Mars returned with the drive to make things happen and get things done two weeks after Jupiter's 12 month visit ended. Whatever hopes, dreams or aspirations you have had on the home, family and/or property fronts since Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returned in May 2023, Mars is here to drive home. By this point you know where things stand, you are aware of the challenges and the potential and are ready to do what you can, with what you've got, from where you're at.

It is on 21st July that Mars will follow Jupiter into your romantic and creative sector, by which point he will be eight weeks into what he will be working to make your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative in over a decade. Until leaving in early September, Mars will add his romantic and creative passions and fighting spirit into the mix. Meanwhile, with the Sun, Venus and Mercury all starting the week in your work sector and with the first planetary activity on the job front this year underway, this will make a balance between work and play important.

The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July here and until leaving on 22nd July, will keep the solar spotlight on your work situation, job matters and options. However, on 3rd July Mercury, the planet of communication will leave and become the first planet to return to your relationship sector this year, followed by Venus, the planet of love on 12th July.

Pisces

By the time Mars returned to your communication sector last month to begin his war on communication barriers for the first time in two years, it had been just two weeks since Jupiter's 12 month visit ended. With the Sun, Venus and Mercury having all recently moved through, Mars returned to find that most of the hard work has already been done. However, until leaving on 21st July, as the warrior planet of the cosmos he will continue his war on communication barriers, making this something that you will continue to benefit from for a long time to come.

At the same time, Mars will be working to strengthen the partnerships made over recent months. As well as starting the month with the Moon in your communication sector, within just the first week of the month, Mars will form a friendly aspect to planets in your friendship and relationship sectors. These are the same aspects the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter have all made over recent months, with the month not only getting off to a good start on the communication front and for friendship and relationship building but with planets staying on to keep this going.

It is when Mars leaves on 21st July that he will join Jupiter in your home and family sector for the first time since 2013. Mars returns every two years with the drive and the motivation to make things happen and get things done, but this time just as Jupiter is settling into what he is working to make your biggest year for growth, expansion and opportunities on the home, family and/or property fronts in over a decade. Meanwhile, While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in a playful and creative part of your chart before returning to your busy work sector, this year the lines between the two are set to overlap.

While Venus and Mercury begin the month with the Sun, Mercury will leave to begin the first planetary activity on the job front this year on 3rd July, with Venus following him on 12th July. This makes a balance between work and play important from the start.
