Cancer (Jun 21 to Jul 22)

The Sun entered your sign on June 21 and is working his way through to conjunct ‘Father’ Saturn on July 8, requiring some serious thinking on your personal affairs. Some difficult decisions may be necessary in order to alter the existing course of your life. Your instinctive reaction may be to blame circumstances or other people, but you are the pilot and others around you are merely passengers on board the vehicle of your existence. Your tendency to take things personally is your worst enemy. However, Saturn brings things beautifully into balance by assisting us in understanding the error of our ways through the application of the cosmic law of cause and effect. In other words what you put out, you get back! The Full Moon on July 2, in your opposite sign of Capricorn, is likely to bring emotions to the surface in your solar house of partnership. Try not to jump to hasty conclusions, as things will take on a better perspective in a day or so and new ideas spring to mind around July 6. The New Moon on July 17 finds you positively buzzing with inspired thought, which you can put into practise on July 31 when the Full Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, your solar house relating to all financial and legal matters.

LEO (Jul 21 to Aug 22)

Plans involving work projects are likely to come to fruition with the Full Moon on July 2 in the sign of Capricorn, your solar house of work and health. However, you may have to hold back from taking action until after the Sun’s conjunction to Saturn on July 8, when the last piece of the jigsaw is finally put in place. Your confidence increases as this month progresses as the planet Mercury enters your sign on July 4, bringing a great deal of wit to your conversation to entertain one and all. On a cautionary note, you need to guard against getting too carried away with your rhetoric on July 11, as you could cause offence to someone in authority. You will need to exercise patience and tact with partners on July 13. The Sun enters your sign on July 22 and your generosity is appreciated, particularly around July 31 with the second Full Moon of this month in the sign of Aquarius, your solar house of marriage and partnership.

Virgo (Aug 22 to Sep 22)

You may have been on the move recently in one way or another as Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is working his way through your sign at a cracking pace. You are not yet in a position to sit back and ‘rest on your laurels’, as there is still a great deal of activity on your horizon and ‘achievement’ is at the top of the agenda. Mercury, your ruling planet, aligns with the fiery Mars in the sign of Leo on July 11, when you may hear the murmuring of a voice from the past whilst attending a social gathering or enjoying a day of leisure. A plan comes together around July 17, when the harmonious Venus, in your solar house of ambition, makes a favourable aspect to the action motivator, Mars. You are advised to consider and weigh up all the pros and cons, or you could find yourself in a muddle when Venus moves into slight conflict with Jupiter on July 27. However, Mercury’s aspect to the all-powerful Pluto takes effect in your solar house of home and family encouraging clear, constructive communication. The unattached might find friendship of a lasting nature around July 31.

Libra (Sep 22 to Oct 23)

Your energy has been a little on the down side in the past month or so and small things have been a source of worry and anxiety. However, things are likely to improve after the Full Moon, in the sign of Capricorn, on July 2 in your solar house relating to home and domestic life. You begin to feel less agitated and more confident in your own surroundings, particularly after Venus, your ruling planet, has aspected the generous giant Jupiter on July 27. In the meantime, Mercury, the planet of communication, enters the sign of Leo on July 4 and things become more relaxed all round. The weekend of the July 10 and 11 is a time for fun and frolics for the young at heart, or courteous pleasantries for the more staid, as Mercury, Venus and Mars hold their own social gathering in the signs of Leo and Gemini. For the unattached, July 16 is likely to be a day of promise, as Venus, Mars and Neptune are in harmony, inclining you to radiate unconditional love towards all of creation.

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 21)

The Sun’s transit through the sign of Cancer may incline you to dream of far away places in the next week or two. The Full Moon, on July 2 in the earthy sign of Capricorn, serves to remind you to remain focused on practicalities such as income and expenditure. This may be a frustrating period for you, since you might be feeling a trifle restricted during the first half of this month. However, the Moon’s opposition to your ruling planet Pluto, on July 14, serves to wake and shake you into action, thus sweeping the cobwebs from your mind, clearing the way for you to forge ahead to resolve things. The planet Mercury moves to conjunct the fiery Mars on July 10, in your solar house of ambition, giving you a clear indication of your aims. Once you know what it is you want, you can set out to achieve it. July 25 is likely to be productive as the planet Venus moves to oppose your ruling planet Pluto and Mars intervenes by harmonising with the pair, thus transforming a potentially stressful situation into one of success. July 31 brings yet another Full Moon, this time in the sign of Aquarius, your solar house of home and family, motivating you towards domestic change.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 to Dec 21)

You are likely to be in a generous mood around July 2 when the Full Moon, in the sign of Capricorn, transits your solar house of income and possessions. Younger family members are likely to benefit from this transit, but try not to get too carried away or you could find yourself short of funds around July 8, when the Sun moves into conjunction with the wise old ‘Father Saturn’. The harmonious Venus makes a brilliant aspect to Neptune on July 16, illuminating your solar house of marriage and partnerships, bringing a general air of contentment to your confines. The Sun enters the sign of Leo on July 22, at the same time that Venus moves to aspect the fiery Mars, also in the sign of Leo. The result is a very pleasant time for those who wish to put their feet up or a day of little effort for the gainfully employed. July 25 looks rather promising, as the powerful Pluto, currently transiting your sign, is beautifully aspected by our itinerant pair, Mars and Venus, when events could turn out rather splendidly, to the surprise of everyone.

Capricorn (Dec 21 to Jan 19)

The Full Moon, in your sign on July 2, is likely to bring issues of partnership into the frame, particularly as your ruling planet, Saturn, is currently transiting your opposite sign of Cancer, your solar house of marriage and partnership. You would be well advised to keep your own counsel and gently mull things over until July 8, when the Sun opposes Saturn and the landscape takes on a different hue. July 16 presents you with a fait accompli, as the peace loving Venus disarms the fiery Mars, currently transiting your solar house of joint finance, and you are likely to find yourself defenceless against the demands of your partner! However, no real damage is done, as you later discover, on July 22 and you are relieved that you restrained yourself from brewing a storm in a teacup. The second Full Moon of this month could bring some financial gain, together with some inspiring thoughts as to how to avoid future financial difficulty.

Aquarius (Jan 19 to Feb 18)

Things have become a little calmer recently and the month ahead could bring you a well-earned rest, together with some time for self reflection. You have spent much time and energy on giving in to the demands of others and now is the time for you to attend to your personal needs. The Moon enters your sign on July 3 and moves to conjunct the planet Neptune, ruler of the subconscious and all that is unseen, on July 4. This may encourage you to while away the hours, lost in a dream world and yet you can make good use of this state by taking it as an indicator of your true desires on your road to self discovery. Alternatively, you can make use of this transit for self-analysis and appraisal, should you happen to be an earthy type! Whatever or whoever you perceive yourself to be, the outcome will be beneficial. The Moon enters the sign of Virgo on July 20 in your solar house of legal, financial affairs, where some decisions are pending. The second Full Moon of this month takes place in your sign, heralding a marked change in your personal life.

Pisces (Feb 18 to Mar 20)

Things could be a little tricky when the fiery Mars, in the sign of Leo, moves into slight conflict with the eccentric, inspirational planet Uranus, which is currently transiting your sign. You might need to watch your health and your temper – just remember to take it all sitting down and to count to 10. You can be assured that normality will be resumed on July 6, when the Moon steps in to heal the situation. Mercury, the planet of communication, aligns with Mars on July 11, when you are likely to receive some long-awaited news. You might experience some upheaval on the home front around July 14, and again on July 20 when the planet Venus, currently in transit in the sign of Gemini, moves into conflict with the mighty Jupiter, setting off a few sparks! However, peace is restored on July 24, when Venus and Mars find themselves on very good terms in your solar houses of work, health and home life. The unattached are favoured around July 21, when the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in the sign of Virgo, your solar house of marriage and partnerships.

Aries (Mar 20 to April 19)

A month of social activity is clearly on the cards for those born under the sign of the Ram. Mars, your ruling planet, is currently transiting the sign of Leo, your solar house of entertainment, pleasure and romance. “How nice,” you might say, “if only I had the time!” Opportunities are there, it is up to you to make time. A meeting of an unusual flavour is likely to take place around July 6, which induces thought or discussions from the sublime to the ridiculous. However, Saturn’s conjunction to the Sun, on July 8, in the sign of Cancer, your Solar house of home and family, is likely to lend sobriety to your domestic life. You are not deflated for long, as the clouds disperse around July 10 and communications improve on the home front on July 11. The New Moon on July 17 in the sign of Cancer, gives a green light for you to put ideas into action in order to bring things to fruition. The Sun enters the sign of Leo on July 22 when things begin to warm up for the unattached. The fire is further kindled on July 25, as Mars makes a brilliant aspect to Pluto in the sign of Sagittarius, your solar house of inspiration.

Taurus (Apr 23 to May 20)

Work projects seem to be presenting little or no trouble at present. However, your emotional life has been a trifle unsettling since mid-June due to the Sun’s transit through the emotional sign of Cancer, which has served to stir up the past to deal with any issue that might be still lurking in the broom cupboard. This month is a time for setting the record straight and bringing things to order. The planet Mercury enters the sign of Leo on July 4 and races to catch up with the fiery motivator Mars, already in Leo. This ‘race’ continues until July 12, when Mercury gains ground and overtakes Mars. You are likely to feel that you are racing against time during this period, at least until the planet Venus placates Mars on July 14 when you will be able to stop for a breath or two. There are two Full Moons this month – one in the earth sign of Capricorn on July 2, the other in the air sign of Aquarius on July 31, in your solar house of ambition. This Aquarian Moon could assist you to reach for the stars to obtain your goal.

Gemini (May 20 to Jun 21)

Something or someone seems to have got hold of you by the tail – your recent behaviour resembles that of the proverbial tiger! It might have something to do with the planet Venus, currently in your sign, moving into conflict with the mighty Jupiter in the analytical sign of Virgo, forcing you to face facts that you had hoped would quietly go away by themselves. The Sun is currently transiting the sign of Cancer, and from June 21, has brought your solar house of income and expenditure into the frame. There are some details that have been overlooked or ignored and you are discovering that the ‘devil’ does, after all, lie in the details. However, your incorrigible flair for ingenuity rises to the occasion and saves the day around July 17, when your ruling planet Mercury assists with communications and you are able to talk your way out of it. The weekend of July 24 and 25 is a time for relaxation, when you are back on form and the world sees the return of your old sparkle and charm.
