Overview

July begins on a positive note this year, with optimistic Jupiter conjunct Venus on the 1st. This provides an upbeat vibe, but a Full Moon in Capricorn on the same date does hint at manipulative fantasies about wealth and power, so we could see some strange behavior from celebrities or politicians around this time.

Hurtful or thoughtless communication is a risk on July 3rd when Mercury squares Chiron, and by July 6th volatile and power-hungry drives on the world stage could lead to a tense stand off as the Sun opposes Pluto.

Mercury enters Cancer on July 8th, which brings clarity of thought to the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. On the same date, a Mars-Neptune trine dampens the energy and enthusiasm of the fire signs, however, so Aries, Leo and Sagittarius will lack willpower for several days.

High levels of energy on July 12th bring dramatic changes for Aries and Cancer in particular, as the Sun squares up to Uranus. Here there's a sense that "something" must be done, without too much care for what that something might be. The emotional and financial consequences of reckless action will be felt the following day, when Venus squares Saturn.

July 15th is a significant date for the political tension which began to take shape on July 6th. Here there is a possessive New Moon in Cancer, accompanied by some all or nothing gameplay as both Mercury and Mars oppose Pluto. On a personal level, these aspects are likely to bring emotional angst to Cancer and Capricorn, and to a lesser extent to the other two cardinal signs, Aries and Libra.

It's not until Venus enters Virgo on July 18th that we start to feel a more constructive vibe, although a Mercury-Uranus square suggests that common-sense solutions will still be too radical for some. The Venus ingress is good personal news for the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, and helps to improve peace of mind for those who worry too much.

A grounding Sun-Saturn trine on July 21st is helpful on the world stage and helps to boost Scorpio's personal levels of determination and wellbeing too. The following day, the Sun enters Leo, closely followed by Mercury on July 23rd. This positive and optimistic boost will make it easier for events on the world stage to take a better direction, although leaders will need to guard against arrogance.

As Venus turns retrograde on July 25th, it's time to think more carefully about how and why we value those around us. Mars squares Uranus on this date, leading to a desire to exert one's own will, no matter the cost to loved ones or colleagues. These selfish urges take on a more extreme feel the following day as Uranus also goes retrograde, but a helpful Mars-Chiron trine provides the self-confidence we need to give ourselves a good talking to.

As July ends many of us will still be trying to find that balance between selfishness and respect for others, but an Aquarius Full Moon on July 31st highlights the importance of selfless actions, reigning in some of the more insular actions of the water signs.
