July is highlighted by a full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 5th that will close heavy doors. New relationships will be tested this month while seasoned relationships face important milestones. This is a “now or never” month for partnerships, but don’t sign anything or say any “I dos” until after July 17th, when Mercury has gone direct after a few weeks in retrograde.
The new moon in Cancer on July 20th will again bring relationship tension to the surface, but soothing Neptune, creative Venus, and charming Mercury will be going to bat for all of us.
Venus has resumed course after a retrograde period last month, so July is a fine time to finally update your look and self-care stash. Invest now and thank yourself later.
Uranus is well-angled to the sun during the first half of the month and Mercury at the last half. This suggests positive outcomes from the recent momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement. Use the rest of Mercury retrograde to make sure you are a registered voter and have a plan as to where to vote (and a backup polling place in case it shuts down).
Happy birthday! You’ve recently entered a phase in which your purpose is outweighing your paycheck. This energy can cause tectonic shifts in your career, so aim ethically high and start sustainably low. Slow and steady wins the race over the next few months. The lunar eclipse on the 5th of July may bring to light the direction you are heading if you weren’t sure. The second new moon in Cancer of 2020 on July 20th will bring relief after many years of universe-mandated relationship school. Use your birthday as an opportunity to collect donations for the Black Lives Matter movement.

It’s typical for Taurus to spend time with sibs or old friends during Cancer season, and with your ruling planet Venus in your house of finances and security, you’ll have the most coveted of resources: time.

The sun is in your house of finances and security until Leo season, which usually means you’re saving up, cleaning up, and stocking up. This month, however, your ruling planet Mercury is still in retrograde until the 12th. Wait until the 16th to make any kind of major investment of time or money. With Uranus hovering in your 12th house of wisdom and spirituality at a good angle to the sun in your house of personal wealth, you may find yourself struck with seemingly divine inspiration to, say, buy up stocks, apply for a new job or buy a house. Careful, though, because the new moon in Cancer on July 20th may reveal things you didn’t notice with your rose colored glasses but wish you had.
