July will be a hectic but powerful month for us all. We will start off in Cancer season, our first watery moment of this astrological year, and end in Leo season. Moving from a water season to a fire season on July 23rd will see us stepping out of our feels and into our heels. Confidence, satisfaction, and motivation will come in full force. There are also a few exciting celestial events on the calendar as well! We have a fun new moon/partial solar eclipse coming up on Friday the 13th and then a blood moon on July 27th. The blood moon (also known as a total lunar eclipse) will be the longest of the century! Mark those dates on your calendar.
Mars is also in retrograde this month. We will need to take time to think about the ways we assert ourselves and express our anger. Mars in Aquarius asks us how we use our confidence and passion to better the greater good. Are we tweeting angrily about politics, or are we taking action? Mars’ retrograde asks us to take a step back and look at the way we are handling situations that require us to express passion. Are we happy with how we are taking control of our lives? Do we need to adjust our methods? These feelings will linger on into August as well.
Horoscopes for July 1 - July 31, 2018
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Hello, angel. Welcome to Cancer season. You are thriving, honey, and we all see you. Whatever is going on with this romance is going to be great for you, but I’m going to need you to slow down. Remember to breathe and to enjoy the ride. You don’t need to do everything at once. People will wait for you. You can take your time.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You are putting in the work and it is apparent. I know you want to be a figurehead for this, but you need to wait it out. Your time is coming. You will find the glory you seek, but for the meantime stay on your grind and build the foundation. You might find that being behind the scenes gives you more satisfaction anyway. And your problems of the heart will be solved soon. Do not worry about what you cannot control. Live and let live.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You are working too far in advance. Relish in the downtime you have now. Seasons are changing and I know that makes you panic a little, but you have to take it slow. The only way you will be able to plan for the future is by understanding the present. Focus your attention on the way your days are playing out now to find the insight you are seeking for the days ahead. Your heart knows what needs to be done—listen to it.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You have so many options that you are unable to remember why you wanted them all in the first place. Your dreams are coming for you. You asked and now you are receiving. But you don’t need to make a decision. You can have more than one thing. It’s not as black and white as you think it is. You have been doing a lot of soul-searching, and it is paying off. Write down what you’ve learned, and remind yourself of it every day.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You are almost there. You’ve got a plan that has been in motion for a while now, and you’re about to reap the rewards. Keep pushing, and don’t let the final weeks go to waste. Old friends are coming back into your life as well. You need to keep yourself on task now more than ever. This water season is going to challenge you, but if you stay away from old habits you will come out stronger than ever.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Hi there. Breathe. Take a second to yourself. You have been dealing with nonsense for what feels like three months. You need some rest and relaxation this month. You’ve identified people around you who do not serve you anymore, and you are ready to let them go. The new moon this month is for you. Follow your arrow where it leads. You need to be alone in the wild. Recharge.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You are doing okay right now. Things have mellowed out a bit and you are finally back into a bit of a routine. You know it’s all going to change, of course, but for the time being you are steady. Remember that hobby you once loved? Get back into it. You can run on autopilot for the next few weeks. Pick up an extracurricular, and try to do it consistently this month. The people around you can take care of themselves for the time being. Go have a date with yourself.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You know that old saying about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? You are stuck in a pattern, Aquarius. You need to break out of this old routine. Especially when it comes to love and friendship. If you keep on keeping on, things are going to get stale real quick. Your uniqueness is your greatest strength. Remember how you wanted to save the world? Now’s the time.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Welcome back, Pisces. You’ve been on a journey. This is your checkpoint. Release the baggage you’ve accrued over the last three seasons. Picking up the pieces for others has made your bag quite heavy. You need to set it down and sort it out. There are things you need to keep in your mind, and things that are ready to leave it. The fantasy must end here. Reality needs you.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You have been going around with your blinders on. Ignoring reality won’t make it exist any less. There are things and people you must find the courage to see. You are a warrior, and you must step into battle like any other warrior does. It is time for you to enter the places that are now unfamiliar to you and relearn them. You can’t control everything, but you can control your actions. You can control how you see the world around you. What are you looking at?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Sis, here’s the tea. Let go of this negative mood. You need to reconnect with all of the physical pleasures in your world. See people, feel things, touch them. You can get your groove back without breaking the bank. Become rich in relationships and friendships. Status won’t bring you happiness. Only you can do that. You must learn that the key to satisfaction is right under your nose. You are the light.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Did you finally find your direction? It may have been two weeks ago, but I think you found it. Retrace your steps. Go back to the start. You need to follow through. Make an actionable plan for this idea. Momentum is key for you this month. Stretch out that Gemini season energy for as long as you can. Someone is trying to talk to you. Do you know who it is? Go find them. Ask them to come. You are needed somewhere.
