New Moon Leo: Go Higher

New Moon

NEW MOON [5 Leo 39] 

– Thursday 28 July (18:55 GMT+1)

This week, there’s a New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. The Sun shines bright in Leo, the star sign linked to royalty. The essence of Leo is to be at the heart of proceedings, the centre of attention, just like the Sun at the centre of the universe.

Leo, the big cat, thrives when it receives plenty of stroking, accolade and admiration. Leo is a creative star sign, so this is about your identity, your unique skills and talents, what makes you ‘you’.

Make your mark this week, be audacious, have fun, party like there’s no tomorrow. Do your thing, find your passion, follow your heart.

Let the Sun & Moon in Leo empower you to take centre stage and show off your skills and talents. Be wary of slipping into bossiness or arrogant behaviour but don’t miss out on this chance to perform.

Jupiter Joy

The closest planetary aspect to the New Moon is a positive trine aspect from Jupiter in Aries. The Sun represents vitality, heat and warmth and Jupiter expands what it touches.

This is one of the luckiest planetary combinations between the Sun and Jupiter, symbolising visionary plans, big goals, a search for meaning, and a connection with the divine. Look out for new opportunities coming your way and notice when and where you can say yes to life.

The Sun-Jupiter connection is about making the best out of any situation, looking on the bright side and spreading optimism. Fire signs are motivated, spontaneous and fun. The Sun-Jupiter trine aspect perfects on July 31st, three days after the New Moon.

Jupiter Retrograde

Big planet Jupiter turns retrograde only a few hours after the New Moon at 21:37 GMT+1 on July 28th. When one of the slower-moving planets switches direction, it adds intensity to the point in the zodiac where the planet turns.

Jupiter switches direction at 8° Aries 43. Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and growth, linked to foreign connections, higher education and the bigger picture in life.

Over the next few months, Jupiter will repeat its steps through the zodiac until it reaches 28° Pisces 48 on November 23rd, where it turns direct.

Jupiter leaves the first sign of the zodiac Aries on October 28th for a couple of months only. It’s as if Jupiter is going back into the last sign of the zodiac Pisces to complete what it started earlier this year.

Jupiter turns direct close to a New Moon once again on November 23rd, this time in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign of rulership. It’s as if Jupiter is urging you to sow seeds and say yes to new beginnings both times it switches direction.

Over the next few months, Jupiter retrograde is helpful for planning, working on your mindset, practising gratitude, shifting your perspective. It’s inner work that counts.

Also, it means you get two more bites of the cherry if you have key planets/angles between 28° Pisces & 8° Aries. If you have planets/angles at the end or start of the zodiac, Jupiter’s going back over them two more times.

The retrograde or middle Jupiter conjunction often delivers the goods. My publishing contract with Hodder & Stoughton came in on Jupiter’s conjunction to my natal Mercury (writing), when it was retrograde. It happened almost to the day as Jupiter returned to 16 Libra. Whatever begins under a Jupiter transit promises success.

This week’s fire sign astrology brings heat and many people are experiencing fires and intense heat around the world.

Yet, this combination is also promising for big picture thinking, vision work, taking a leap of faith, saying yes to life. It’s an ideal week to go higher.

What Does It Mean For You

Read your Sun sign and the star sign that’s five signs ahead of yours – it will be the same element to your Sun sign. This will tell you which areas of your life are under the cosmic spotlight.

For example, if you’re Leo, this is your New Moon but read Sagittarius too, because this is the area of life where you’re currently experiencing Jupiter’s influence.

  • Aries: love affairs, children, creativity, entertainment, luck
  • Taurus: home, family, your past, where you come from
  • Gemini: communication, education, community, siblings & neighbours
  • Cancer: personal money, possessions, values, resources, self-worth
  • Leo: personal goals, physical body, image & profile
  • Virgo: retreat, secrets, inner work, preparation
  • Libra: friends, groups, social networks, hopes & wishes
  • Scorpio: career, vocation, status & reputation, where you’re heading
  • Sagittarius: travel, exploration, higher education, knowledge, the bigger picture
  • Capricorn: joint finances & shared resources, sex, money, death & rebirth
  • Aquarius: relationships, one-to-one interactions, contracts & joint ventures
  • Pisces: work, lifestyle, health, service to others

Remember to make a wish when you first see the crescent moon in the sky a day or two after the exact date of the New Moon.

Happy New Moon!

Full Moon Capricorn: Decision Time

Full Moon

Full Moon [21 Capricorn 21] 

July 13, 2022 (19:38 GMT +1) – London

July 13, 2022(14:38 GMT -4) – New York

July 14, 2022 (04:38 GMT +10) – Sydney

The Full Moon takes place this week cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. These two star signs are the foundations of the horoscope representing your past (Cancer) and your future (Capricorn).

They represent where you come from, your home and family, your legacy (Cancer) and where you’re heading, your career and vocation, your long-term goals (Capricorn).

We are all born into this life and at some point we must leave it. The point at the base of the horoscope, the IC, is sometimes referred to as ‘the womb & the tomb’ – it’s where we emerge from and where we return to.

If you’re lucky, the days in-between will be filled with more joy than sorrow, but part of life’s path is to experience all of life, to take and learn from it what you can, to dig deep to uncover hidden riches.

In the zodiac wheel that’s linked to the seasons, the star sign Cancer is at the base. Whereas Capricorn is at the opposite end of the axis, the peak or culmination.

Full Moons are often a time of heightened emotions when important matters culminate and big events peak. They are a time to stop, listen and make key decisions that resonate with both your head and your heart. Sometimes the pull will be stronger in one direction. Ideally, this is a time to regain balance and seek a way to reconcile opposing forces.

Super Moon

This month’s Full Moon will be glorious to watch. It’s one of three Super Moons dominating the middle period of the year and this is the closest of the three. This means that it may appear brighter than usual and you can witness the glory of the Full Moon from July 12th to July 14th. It will be most spectacular on July 13th.

The Moons influence the tides in the sea and you can expect higher tides during the Full Moon period. It’s often a time when sleep is elusive or rich with dreams, life events can be more dramatic and emotions are heightened.

Full Moon Aspects

The Sun at 21 Cancer sits next to talk planet Mercury at 17 Cancer during the Full Moon. They are moving towards a ‘cazimi’ aspect which takes place at the weekend. This can bring illumination, insight, enlightenment.

It suggests that this Full Moon is ideal for negotiation, important communication, debate and ideas. If you’ve been putting off a conversation, this may be the right week to act decisively.

There’s another reason why this Full Moon feels significant. The Moon at 21 Capricorn & the Sun at 21 Cancer are both making significant planetary aspects to the three outer planets, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto. Uranus is at 18 Taurus, Neptune is at 25 Pisces and Pluto is at 27 Capricorn.

The outer planets are generational planets because they’re slow moving and take years to move through one star sign. They’re linked to psychological archetypes & the collective unconscious: Uranus – dissociation; Neptune – dissolution; Pluto – destruction.

Therefore, this Full Moon could prove decisive beyond the individual and it’s an important time to consider what’s happening in the world.

The powerful Saturn-Pluto conjunction on January 12, 2020 was at 22 Capricorn and the Lunar Eclipse on January 10, 2020 was at 20 Cancer/Capricorn. What’s coming full circle, where is there closure and what’s being exposed?

Release & Letting Go

On a personal level, this Full Moon could reveal something that was previously unknown. Listen for insights, dig deep for answers and tap into your subconscious. Full Moons are associated with release and letting go.

If you are in the middle of a challenging situation, this Full Moon won’t necessarily be easy as it demands attention. If you’re at a crossroads in your life, you may sense that the pressure’s building to sort things out.

During this powerful Full Moon, decide what stays and what goes. If something’s come to an end and you need to move on, here’s your opportunity.

Where in life are you experiencing strong emotions? Are you in a situation where you are trapped or powerless? Have you given your power away, have you lost control? Consider who holds power over you.

There’s a decisive feel to this week’s astrology which culminates during the Full Moon. Get ready to slam the door shut if necessary, toughen up if you need to and make those big decisions.

Here are the areas highlighted by this Full Moon. Read both your Sun sign & your Ascendant sign:

  • Aries – home, family, past  career, status, responsibility
  • Taurus – communication, neighbours, siblings, local neighbourhood  travel, study, beliefs
  • Gemini – finances, possessions, values, self-worth  other peoples’ money, taboo issues
  • Cancer – image, self-identity, personal goals  relationships, other people, contracts
  • Leo – retreat, secrets, self-undoing  work, service, health
  • Virgo – friends, groups, society, associations  children, creativity, entertainment
  • Libra – career, status, responsibility  home, family, past
  • Scorpio – travel, study, beliefs  communication, neighbours, siblings
  • Sagittarius – other peoples’ money, taboo issues  finances, possessions, values, self-worth
  • Capricorn – relationships, other people, contracts  image, self-identity, personal goals
  • Aquarius – work, service, health  retreat, secrets, self-undoing
  • Pisces – children, creativity, entertainment  friends, groups, society, associations

Money Matters

Money is where there’s force and ambition in your horoscope as Mars charges through Aries and your personal money sector up until the 5th. You may experience a sense of urgency around money or finances. It could be a time when you need to be forthright and direct to get your personal needs met.

Mars is in feisty mood at the start of the month and clashes with Pluto in Capricorn on the 2nd. This combination is combustible and volatile and not for the faint-hearted. You might be up against the authorities or fighting someone close over money.

It could be an ongoing issue which flares up again. It’s important to stand up for your rights but choose your battles carefully. This kind of planetary conflict can wear you out or be dangerous.

Alternatively, as Pluto negates what it touches, it may mean that a source of money is no longer available to you. This could be the source of frustration or the trigger that starts an argument. Be aware that money and friendship don’t mix as July begins.

Gentle Vibes

Behind the scenes, there’s a gentler vibe taking place and you may be keen to avoid any conflict or clash and hide away instead. The Sun is in your fellow water sign Cancer up until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is swaying along here too from the 5th to the 19th.

Plus, the planet of relating Venus is in Gemini and your home and family sector up until the 18th. Add this all together and it turns your attention towards the things and people in life you love, adopting a slower pace and enjoying simple pleasures.

Venus in Gemini turns your attention towards home and family, your past and where you come from. You might be catching up with people you haven’t seen for some time. Or, be enjoying some quiet time or family time at home.

Venus is particularly active on the 13th & 14th when she aligns with Saturn, then Neptune, your co-ruler in your star sign, Pisces. This is lovely for inspiring your imagination. Dive deep into the realm of fantasy, dreams, your creative or spiritual source.

Caring Cancer

Cancer is the star sign that rules all the good things in your life, including romance, children & pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and luck.

With the Sun here until the 22nd, this is an ideal time to do more of what you love, to prioritise play and go with the flow. Spend time reading or relaxing, daydreaming or pondering.

Mercury in Cancer from the 5th to the 19th is caring and counselling. Be there for the ones you love and ask for support if you need help or advice.

If there are any issues in these key areas of your life, especially love or parenting, the Full Moon on the 13th could prove pivotal. Full Moons are often a time of completion or culmination and this Full Moon is ideal for making a final decision.

Trust the light of the Moon to guide you and bring you clarity. Tap into your natural intuition and, if necessary, be ready to close a door on the past. There may be some sadness linked to events around this Full Moon but there’s also love and connection available. What takes place could bring you closer to the ones you love.

Also, Venus enters Cancer on the 18th where she remains until mid-August. This is a lovely transit of Venus for romance and passion. Consider what you might ‘give birth to’ while Venus is here as Venus rules art & beauty.

This could be a masterpiece, a work of art, a baby or a love affair. Venus is swooning her way through Cancer and you’ll feel her pull strongly. Lose yourself in your passions.

Do What You Love

On the 22nd, there’s a shift of pace as the Sun leaves gentle Cancer and enters fiery Leo. Talk planet Mercury also moves into Leo on the 19th. Therefore, the latter part of the month is a good time to focus on your work and routine, your health and well-being.

Ensure you’re in tip top condition and that work is a lovely place to be. If it’s not, you might be rethinking or reconsidering what you want to do and how.

The New Moon in Leo falls on the 28th, an excellent date to make a wish and set your intentions around work and health. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings.

This would be a good time to restore your energy, look after yourself and do whatever makes you happy and cheerful. Engage in activities that put a smile on your face.

There’s another reason why the last week of July could be pleasurable for you. This is because your ruling planet Jupiter is in action on the same day as the New Moon, the 28th. This is when Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries in a gorgeous supportive planetary aspect to the Sun & Moon in Leo.

Sometimes, Jupiter turning retrograde means that things take a backward step. Yet, Jupiter’s energy is intense as the planet stations and can be channelled effectively. This means that you could have luck & abundance a’plenty when it comes to work and money.

Lucky dates are the 23rd & 31st. Take a risk, believe in yourself and play big in these key areas of your life. It’s an ideal time to restore your trust, hope and faith in life.

Act Fast

Finally, this month, there’s an unusual connection between the planet of change Uranus and the karmic north node in Taurus. They align in the heavens on the 26th and this can trigger the wheel of destiny turning.

Uranus often brings the unexpected when you may hear surprising news and Taurus is your communication sector. Keep your ear to the ground as it might be something unexpected or unusual that sets change in motion.

This creates a lively, yet restless vibe and you might find it hard to sit still or do the same thing day in, day out. Ring the changes if you can and embrace freedom where possible. Uranus doesn’t like to be chained to a desk.

Inner Activist

Mars is the combative planet and, as July begins, Mars remains in Aries and your communication sector. There could be things that you have to say as July gets underway. If you’re feeling cross, frustrated or hard done by, it’s going to be hard to stay quiet.

Mars only stays in Aries until the 5th but, on the 2nd, Mars clashes with power planet Pluto in Capricorn. This is a combustible planetary combination when tempers can flare and people take a stand. You might be caught up in the midst of whatever’s going on.

You could decide to take on the authorities or channel your inner activist. You may not fit easily into the status quo and your rebellious nature could be fired up. Perhaps, you meet someone early in July who’s angry, driven and ready for action. Or, perhaps that person is you.

Be aware that Mars and Pluto coming together are potentially violent so choose your battles wisely and carefully.

A Gentler Pace

Also this month, there’s a gentler pace of life behind the scenes. This is due to the fact that the Sun’s in the caring water sign Cancer until the 22nd. Plus, communication planet Mercury’s here from the 5th to the 19th. Cancer rules your work and health sector. It’s about your lifestyle, your daily habits and routines that work for you.

Try and find a steady pace in your life and up your level of self-care. There’s so much going on out in the big wide world. Ensure that you start by looking after yourself before deciding what you can do to help others.

This is important because Cancer rules the sector of your horoscope that’s linked to service and being of service to others. If you’re true to your Aquarius archetype, society matters to you and you often play a key role within an environmental, social or humanitarian role.

Work and routine may feel more relaxed for you once lovely Venus graces the star sign Cancer and your work and health sector from the 18th onwards. This would be a good time to focus on teamwork and ensure you have a creative group of people around you. Also, a time to reach out to health professionals or healers.

Be supportive to your colleagues and associates and ask for help and advice in return. Allow things to flow and do the best for your health. Having people who care for you deeply may be the best form of medicine.

Full Moon/Hidden Themes

This month’s Full Moon takes place on the 13th and cuts across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. This could be a stand-out date when the themes of the month are crystallised or revealed.

You may clearly see who’s for you and who’s against you. Pluto is involved in the Full Moon and in Capricorn, this can indicate a secret enemy or someone in authority who’s a loose cannon.

It may be a time when you recognise that you need to take a step back or close the door on your past. Sometimes saying no is what’s necessary.

On a practical level, the Full Moon may reveal insights about your work or a contract. Here too, you may decide to remove yourself from a tense situation. Events on or around the 18th-20th could prove pivotal.

Love & Passion

There’s a shift in pace as the Sun changes star sign on the 22nd. The Sun leaves watery Cancer and enters fiery Leo. The Sun joins talk planet Mercury here, as Mercury enters Leo on the 19th.

Leo is your relationship sector. Therefore, once the Sun is Leo, you’re right to prioritise your one-to-one’s, both personal and professional. Let another person take the lead, for example, and turn to people in your life who inspire and uplift you.

This could be a peak month for love too. For example, you might meet someone when lovely Venus is in Gemini and your romance sector up until the 18th. Whatever’s going on for you personally, this is a positive time to seek fun and enjoyment in life. Children, lovers and playmates are where fulfilment lies.

Planets in Leo can take a relationship to the next level and there’s a New Moon here on the 28th, a symbol of new beginnings. It’s a positive New Moon to initiate a conversation or heart-to-heart. New Moons are the time to set your intentions, to seed something new in your life.

This New Moon could see a love relationship take off and fast. Plus, on the same day as the New Moon, big planet Jupiter turns retrograde in another fire sign Aries. This is your communication sector and one conversation could help a relationship develop or move fast.

Jupiter represents luck and favours risk-taking, playing big, having self belief, trust, hope & faith. Fire signs are great for taking action, being motivated and spontaneous. The 23rd & 31st are packed full of opportunity as is the 28th.

Look out for the person who can give you exactly what you need. Be inspired by others, reach out to people and make successful connections. The end of July is the perfect time to give and receive without holding back.

The Uranus Factor

As a Sun Aquarius, you have two ruling planets, sensible Saturn and rebellious Uranus. Saturn could be a steadying influence this month in your star sign Aquarius. The same can’t be said of your co-ruler Uranus.

The end of the month is the time when you’re likely to hear Uranus’ clarion call. This is because, on the 26th, Uranus teams up with the karmic north node in Taurus. This combination can trigger the wheel of destiny turning as change kicks in.

Uranus is currently in Taurus and your home and family sector. You may feel restless or rootless with this influence. Or, perhaps, you’re on the move literally. You’re changing and it’s going to be hard to stay still in one place.

Also, Mars is in Taurus from the 5th onwards where it remains until August 20th. You could be pulled back towards the past at the end of July. Or, recognise that the themes of the past are catching up with you.

Capricorn Horoscope July 2022

Capricorn horoscope July 2022, travel

Power Clash

The start of July could be a time of conflict or aggravation. This has a lot to do with what’s happening with the planet Mars representing passion and anger. Mars is in Aries up until the 5th, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. This puts a strong emphasis on your home and family.

On the 2nd, Mars clashes with Pluto in your star sign Capricorn and this is potentially a combustible and temperamental combination. This could indicate you’ve got the builders in and life is noisy. Or, perhaps you’re trying to sell or buy a property and you’re up against tough competition or opposition.

In some cases, this could trigger a rift with a family member, a tenant or someone else who comes in and out of your home. It’s tempestuous so try not to get overly fired up if there’s an issue close to home.

On the other hand, if there’s something you feel strongly about, this is the time to push things forward and fight for your rights. Any decisions made this month may be final.

The Lives of Others

Also, you may sense a shift in some of your relationships this month. This is because of the emphasis on your opposite star sign Cancer. The Sun’s here until the 22nd and talk planet Mercury’s in Cancer from the 5th to the 19th.

Other people are undoubtedly important in your life right now and this may be for different reasons. It may not always be easy taking a step back and letting someone else take the lead but that might be what needs to happen, perhaps around the 18th-20th. Alternatively, you might be low in energy or need other people to look after you.

Also, there’s a possibility that not everyone will agree with you or you with them. Those potential clashes mentioned at the start of your horoscope could continue on or off until the Sun leaves Cancer. Steer away from people who drain your energy and move closer towards people who support you.

The Full Moon on the 13th is likely to be a pivotal moment regarding your one-to-ones, whether personal or professional. This month’s Full Moon falls in your star sign Capricorn, so trust your intuition and listen to your emotions.

Pluto is once again involved. Therefore, the Full Moon could coincide with an ending or a door closing. One way or another it’s an ideal time to make a key decision about a relationship situation.

On the 18th, Venus takes up the relationship baton and graces your love zone until mid-August. This could be a loving time for your one-to-one’s, especially if you’re in a relationship or you’ve recently met someone and it’s a kind and caring vibe.

When Venus is in your opposite star sign, you’re always wise to get the right people on your side. Be around people you trust and create mutually-beneficial and supportive partnerships in your life.

Money Matters

Money matters are under the cosmic spotlight towards the latter part of the month. This is because the Sun is shining bright in Leo and your joint finance sector from the 22nd onwards. Plus, the Sun joins talk planet Mercury in Leo. Mercury enters this sector of your horoscope on the 19th.

Therefore, this would be a great time in the month to talk money and finances and get things sorted out. If you’re pushing for a property move or negotiating family finances, the best dates to get things moving are the 23rd & 31st. This planetary combination is good for sharing resources with family and pooling expenses.

Plus, the New Moon on the 28th falls in Leo and is a great date to set your intentions around money, launch a project or start something new. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings.

You could be asked to do a presentation on money, decide to talk to your bank manager or a financial expert. One way or another, it’s the right time to be improving your financial situation and boosting your earnings. Joint ventures in particular are well-starred.

This has got a lot to do with the fact that lucky Jupiter is in Aries and active during the last week of July. Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries and your home and family sector on the same day as the New Moon, the 28th.

Sometimes, this indicates a change in fortune. Yet, Jupiter’s a positive influence and its energy is intense and channelled when it switches direction. Jupiter encourages you to take a risk, play big and to have hope and faith that life’s moving you in the right direction.

Saying Yes

Jupiter is the planet linked to luck and Taurus is the sector of your horoscope linked to speculation. Action planet Mars is in Taurus from the 5th onwards and you may be fired up checking out new ways to make money.

On the 26th, the planet of change Uranus teams up with the karmic north node, also in Taurus. This combination can trigger the wheel of destiny turning. Uranus is the planet linked to wins but also losses. It’s high-risk stakes.

Be aware of this but do take a punt and say yes to a door that opens, a new opportunity. This may be linked to children, a creative project, love or some other idea or event that grabs hold of you and won’t let go. It’s intriguing and exciting astrology to end the month of July.

Sagittarius Horoscope July 2022

Sagittarius horoscope July 2022, camper van

Power Clash

It’s a lively start to July as there’s a major planetary clash on the 2nd when two of the volatile planets, Mars and Pluto, square up to one another. Immediately, this tells you it’s likely to be a significant month for you regarding money.

This is because Pluto is in Capricorn and your personal money sector. If you’re dealing with debt or a loss of income, this combination is combustible when tempers could flare.

This may not necessarily be about your situation. Perhaps, it’s to do with someone close to you. This is because Mars is in a fellow fire sign Aries ruling children and lovers in your horoscope.

Not being able to afford the things you want to do could leave you feeling frustrated. Or, perhaps there’s an ongoing clash with a child or lover as you disagree over spending or money management. It’s a heated planetary conflict and not the ideal time to raise the roof.

Money Matters

There are other reasons why money’s likely to be an important factor this July. Hopefully, the astrology can help guide and advise you on your best course of action. The Sun’s in Cancer and your joint finance sector until the 22nd and talk planet Mercury is here too from the 5th to the 19th.

Immediately, it looks as if finances in some shape or form are top of your agenda, whether you’re trying to help other people or you need to attend to your finances.

Cancer rules the sector of your horoscope that’s about savings & investment, debt & loss, inheritance & alimony, money owed & money shared. It can play out in different ways for you but it’s important to note that Cancer is a family and home-oriented star sign.

Therefore, this might be a month when you want to set up a savings account or you’re discussing pooling resources with the people you live with or the people you’re closest to.

Open the lines of communication this month and do your research if you want to pay for something special. This is what communication planet Mercury is good for, working out the facts and figures, finding things out.

The Full Moon on the 13th is likely to be a pivotal date as it cuts across the Cancer-Capricorn axis of the zodiac. Plus, Pluto is involved again during the Full Moon. This might mean saying no when it comes to money, cutting expenses or stopping a payment.

Full Moons are a time of completion and culmination when the light of the Moon is at its brightest. It’s a time for clarity, to trust your intuition and to make key decisions.

The astrology doesn’t suggest that the first half of the month is a time to speculate or take a financial risk. Yet, as you’ll hear later, this could be different in the latter part of July.

There is a softer influence regarding money and emotional ties, thanks to Venus, the planet of relating. Venus enters Cancer and your joint finance sector on the 18th where she remains until mid-August.

Sometimes, this means you receive a gift or bonus. Or, perhaps you’re the one who’s feeling flush and you want to treat someone close. It’s a good time to get the right kind of advice or support, perhaps from a woman adviser or financial expert. Team up with other people to firm up your future security.

Love & Romance

July could be a hot month for romance and there’s more than one reason why. Firstly, love planet Venus is in Gemini and your relationship sector up until the 18th.

Venus only graces your opposite star sign approximately once every year so make the most of it. The stand-out dates for love are potentially the 13th & 14th when Venus’ power is strong.

Yet, there’s another factor here, involving your ruling planet Jupiter. Jupiter’s currently in Aries and this is your romance sector. Jupiter kicks in big-time towards the end of the month when you may be more than ready to take a punt when it comes to love.

Key dates are the 23rd & 31st, also the 28th when Jupiter turns retrograde. Sometimes, this indicates that love may take a backward step. Yet, it means that Jupiter’s energy is intense and channelled. You might feel more deeply or strongly about someone in your life.

Jupiter’s not only influencing love, as Aries rules children, creativity and entertainment. Wherever your passions lie, dive in deep.

Adventure & New Experiences

You’re one of the fire signs and fire sign energy is strong in the second half of the month. Talk planet Mercury enters Leo on the 19th followed three days later by the Sun on the 22nd. Leo rules travel and study in your horoscope. It’s wherever in life you wish to expand your horizons, dream big and yearn to learn and experience more.

The Sun’s move through Leo could bring out the hedonistic side of your character when you want to play and live life to the full. It’s a good time to catch up with people who inspire you and plan some adventures together.

If travel’s possible for you, it would be a good time to go somewhere new for a change of perspective. This is the time of year to fire some Sagittarius arrows high into the air and see where they land. Plan ahead and look to 2023.

The best date for setting your intentions for the future is the 28th, when there’s a glorious New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. This would be a good date to go on a trip or learn something new. Note that your planet Jupiter, the traveller & explorer, is also dominant on this date encouraging you to play big.

All Change?

There is another factor to take into account. There may be key reasons why you can’t get away or enjoy the freedom you’re craving and this may be linked to your work, your routine or your health.

This is because of Mars moving through Taurus from the 5th onwards. Mars in Taurus is safe and steady but can feel stuck. You may have a lot on your plate and you could feel bored, frustrated or restless if too much of your time is caught up with routine matters.

The end of the month could bring a breakthrough thanks to the planet of spontaneity, Uranus. On the 26th, Uranus aligns with the karmic north node in Taurus. This often triggers the wheel of destiny turning.

Admittedly, it could mean that some of your best-laid plans have to change and fast. Yet, it’s exciting planetary energy so be flexible and adaptable and try and take advantage of any new ideas or opportunities that come in. Uranus is linked to freedom and space and it’s going to be hard work if you feel hemmed in.

Your Battle To Fight

As July begins, your ruling planets Mars and Pluto are in action. Mars is in Aries and your work and health sector until the 5th. Pluto is in Capricorn and your communication sector ongoing. You may be unusually busy as July gets underway and be on a mission to get fit and get things done.

You’re likely to need more stamina but don’t overdo it and be careful of hitting burn out. Mars clashes with Pluto on the 2nd and this combination can feel combustible. You may feel outraged, angry or indignant at what’s going on around you.

This could be at work or it might involve a dispute with the neighbours, an argument with a sibling. Alternatively, generally feeling frustrated and cross with what’s happening either locally or in the news.

Mars has got energy to burn as July begins but ensure you use it in a way that’s constructive and don’t waste your precious time and energy. The theme of finding your voice has been prominent for some time now but choose your battles carefully.

If you’re up against the authorities, decide whether it’s worth taking on a fight. You don’t want to tarnish your reputation as you have potentially glorious astrology opening up later this month when you could do exceptionally well. One way or another, your inner activist is dominant and strong as July begins.

The Bigger Picture

Even though July’s stars may see you getting fired up in your everyday life, there’s a side of your nature that may be yearning for something more. This has a lot to do with the activity taking place in Cancer and your travel and study sector.

Cancer is a fellow water sign and you often feel in your element when planets are making a positive connection to your star sign Scorpio. The Sun is in Cancer until the 22nd and talk planet Mercury joins the Sun here from the 5th to the 19th.

This can be an ideal time to day-dream and ponder. You could be seeking meaning or purpose in your life and need a big vision or an opportunity to broaden your horizons. You want something more from life than the everyday, so step out of your comfort zone and explore new experiences.

When it comes to booking travel or a study course, ideally use the Full Moon on the 13th to make a decision. This Full Moon falls across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. This is about education and learning, knowledge and teaching.

You could be taking an exam on or around this date or line up some new plans or goals. Your co-ruler Pluto is involved during the Full Moon too and you may make a decision based on events at the start of the month. If you want to step down or say no, be firm in your resolve.

Sometimes, you have to close a door on the past for a new door to open in front of you. This theme may also kick in from the 18th to the 20th.

Work & Ambition

On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo and your career and vocation sector. The Sun joins talk planet Mercury here as Mercury enters Leo on the 19th. As July continues, you’re heading towards an ambitious and potentially successful time of year, so crack on if you’re ready.

This is your chance to shine, to improve your status or reputation. It’s an ideal time to show off your skills and talents. If you get asked to do a talk or give a presentation, go for it.

Be confident in your abilities and, if necessary, fake it until you make it. It’s a good time to show off and let others know what you have to offer with positive planetary activity in your career & vocation sector.

This is also the theme of the New Moon on the 28th which falls in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. Ask for what you want, launch a project and set your intentions around work, career and your next steps.

Big planet Jupiter is also pulled into the planetary picture as Jupiter’s in another fire sign Aries. This could be when a loss turns into a win. Jupiter turns retrograde on the 28th, the day of the New Moon, encouraging you to play big or take a leap of faith.

Lucky dates for work, career & vocation are the 23rd & 31st when Jupiter lights up talk planet Mercury and the light of the Sun respectively. If one door closes in July, it’s very likely that a new door will open.

Also, money is under the cosmic spotlight in the first half of the month with Venus in Gemini and your joint finance sector. Therefore, look for the right people who can help you financially.

Invest in people who can help you move one step closer towards your goals. This could be someone with expert advice. Or, a partner who’s savvy when it comes to money and earnings.

Love Surprises

Your ruling planet Mars moves into Taurus and your relationship sector on the 5th where it remains until August 20th. Mars in Taurus is steady but stubborn too. You may want more security in your relationships but you may already know that doesn’t always suit you.

Plus, you have the planet of change Uranus in Taurus and Uranus is active towards the end of July. The key date is the 26th when Uranus aligns with the karmic north node in Taurus. This can sometimes mean that the wheel of destiny turns leading you down a new path. This may be about love or a business partnership.

Someone else could step in and take you by surprise this month, perhaps an offer you weren’t expecting or a competitor who challenges your business. Uranus gives but also takes away – it works both ways, which is why it’s wise to be flexible and ready to act fast when Uranus is in action.

As your planet Mars clashes with talk planet Mercury on the same day, the 26th, this feels volatile and it might be an argument that’s the catalyst for change.

If you’re in a relationship or married, keep things fresh in your love life. There’s often a theme of freedom when Uranus is active or things happening quickly.
