Monthly Horoscopes July 2018

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

It is time to get your house in order. This time of year often sees you clean, sort and maintain your private residence. This July is no exception. You need to focus on matters close to home. This may also involve relatives. Visits by close and extended family members are likely. Celebrations may also be planned. Your ruling planet is in the 11th House of your Solar Chart heralding a boost in your social life. Friends, groups and clubs may also demand a significant portion of your time. You need to ensure that you are energetic and useful, and avoid conflict.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

Planets of influence are aligned in the 3rd and 4th sectors of your Solar Chart indicating that your local neighbourhood and housing are more active than usual. This may mean that neighbourhood politics is on the horizon or that local interest groups are a focus. It could also mean that you are considering changes in your local neighbourhood such as changing your regular dentist, doctor or hairdresser. You may even be considering moving home to a new neighbourhood. If you feel unsettled then matters should be clearer by the end of the month when the planetary energy changes.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Geminis usually don’t sweat the details, particularly when it comes to monetary matters. However July sees the Sun light up fiscal sectors of your Solar Chart. Hence you may have to make some decisions about your personal finances. It is time to collect and pay any unpaid invoices, sort through your paperwork and file away any scattered bills. You may also like to update some of your personal passwords on your internet banking. If you don’t deal with these types of demands then late fees, and other costs are likely to accumulate. A personal budget may be the way to go.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

July is a significant month for Cancers, culminating in a Solar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign on July 13 (AEST). You are likely to make many self-discoveries. This is not a time for the crabs of the Zodiac to retreat. You need to shine this month. You may be unaccustomed to putting yourself in the Number 1 position in your life. Nevertheless now you need to do so. Others may or may not understand your need to express yourself. You are ready to take the consequences. A little self-care goes a long way and ultimately benefits everyone.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

July is a month during which tensions arise, ones that require you to retreat and carefully consider all options before voicing your opinion or making decisions. Tension is not necessarily a negative state. Creativity can often be birthed from stress. In your case the tension may arise as you discover and express your own talents as opposed to the needs of a significant partner. You need to find the right balance, much like when on a see-saw. A Lunar Eclipse on July 28 (AEST) in your opposing Zodiac Sign Aquarius is likely to shed light on these matters.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

Are you able to take some time out of your busy schedule and treat yourself this month? The pleasant planet Venus is moving into your Zodiac Sign on July 10 (AEST) beckoning you to relax and indulge in something or someone that arouses your passion. This doesn’t have to be a wild or loud expression of love. You may quietly pursue an interest that is quietly burning within. Nevertheless the time has come to cut yourself, and perhaps a loved one, some slack. Suspend critical judgement and treat yourself to a little luxury. If nothing else appeals try reading a light-hearted novel.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

It is time to decide on your “true north”. What does that mean? It means July is your month to listen to your inner compass, to focus on whether or not you are happy with the direction of your life. This is not so much your private life but rather your contribution to society at large. For instance are you happy with your career choice? Is there a cause that you would like to publicly support? Is your marital status – whether single or married – satisfying? Strange as it may seem your relationship with your mother may surface somewhere in your deliberations.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

Your Ruling planet Mars is currently Retrograde which means that you, too, need to go into a retrospective mode. All action needs to be preceded with thought. You need to count to ten before saying angry words. You need to listen to any little warning signals in your personal guidance system i.e. your intuition. And you need to ensure that risks are taken with sensible safety precautions. This is the ideal time to take stock of your physical and emotional needs and ensure that your actions are contributing to your own health and wellbeing. You may also need to protect your loved ones.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

July is your month to examine your personal and joint finances. Your income may dwindle temporarily as bills come in faster than you are accustomed to, or your income lowers for some reason. As a result it is time to change your spending habits. A budget, change of employment or curtailing of expense is likely to be on your mind. It is not just your personal finances. Joint resources are under scrutiny. You are likely to change the way you invest your money. Superannuation, property ownership, stocks and shares and other fiscal investments are due for adjustments. Changes made now pave the way for an abundant future.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

Partnerships come under scrutiny this month. This can be personal or business associations. Either way joint ventures with significant others are on your mind. You may make a commitment or move away from one depending on how easily you can express yourself in your relationship. You are prudent by nature and so you are unlikely to make any rash decisions. This is rather a steady, quiet examination of any significant connections that involve contracts. Improved fellowship is your aim. A Solar Eclipse occurs on July 13 (AEST) in your opposing Sign Cancer. This sheds light on your situation.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

While other people are biding their time, slowing down you are likely to have plenty of get up and go as the feisty planet Mars is in your Zodiac Sign. Joint projects, considering other people’s input and working for the common good are second nature to you. Therefore you are unlikely to have to question your motives or hold back to consider others. It is more likely that you thrive as you consider your options. A Lunar Eclipse lights up your Zodiac Sign on July 28 heralding insights into the way that you conduct your affairs.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

It is time to birth something new. This could involve a lifestyle change, a budding romance, new artistic project, starting a meditation class or accepting a new job offer. Whatever the scenario the idea is that you have some fun in July. You have the option to feel good by working towards your dreams. Children may also feature more prominently in July. This could be your own children’s health and well-being or associating with young people through your daily work. July is also the ideal time to examine your own health, implementing improvements to your lifestyle.
