HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN! You’re running on solar power this month, with your ruler, the Sun, in your sign. Let your light shine! Your vitality & self-confidence will be high, and you could be especially charismatic, popular & impressive on 7/22, 27, 31 and 8/8 (New Moon in Leo) — enjoy the attention! Mars has been in LEO since 6/11 (and stays there until 7/29); you’re projecting some strong, sexy energy these days. You may want to refresh or change up your appearance, self-image or lifestyle in some way on 8/3 & 6; be proactive and take the initiative to make any necessary adjustments to the status quo. Consider getting a facial, trying out a new hairstyle or brightening up your wardrobe; perhaps it’s time for an updated professional photo.
A partnership will demand equal time around 7/23 (Full Moon), 29, 8/1, 10 & 19; avoid drama and strive for clarity & consensus in your one-on-one relationships. Feedback from others could take you to a new level of personal awareness & happiness! On 7/28, Jupiter returns to your partnership sector for the rest of the year, providing an opportunity to enhance an existing relationship or to develop a positive new one. It’s the time to join forces — teamwork makes the dream work!
Some unfinished business will be requiring your focused attention as this solar month begins. Tie up any loose ends, complete old projects and put your life in order; consider cleaning the closets & drawers, sorting, filing and clearing the decks. The more you get accomplished, the easier it will be to take advantage of the positive opportunities that arise after 7/27 once Mercury enters LEO. The following few weeks will represent a period for redefining your personal priorities, intentions and lifestyle. Get your act together!
Especially from 7/29 on (and for the next 6 weeks), you’ll have the energy to put your financial affairs in good condition, stock up on necessities and re-evaluate your dietary regimen. Think prosperously and be open to new sources of income, especially on 8/2, 11 & 20-21. Nurture yourself and tend to your personal needs!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ve been in the midst of a major metamorphosis in work, service & health matters since Pluto entered CAPRICORN (1/25/08–11/19/24). As this 16-year cycle unfolds, your work environment, as well as your relationship with co-workers, will be undergoing a transformative process. Changes, rearrangements & upheavals can take place with procedures & personnel, as you are ready for new projects & directions.
You’ll be placing a higher premium on health, exercise and relaxation; eliminate any outgrown habits that are detrimental to total well-being! A renewed spirituality, heightened psychic sensitivity or a devotional path could become a more significant aspect of your life. Volunteer opportunities to help those less fortunate than yourself could fulfill a deeper desire to be of service to others. A willingness to take on the responsibility of a pet could bring transformative, healing rewards for all concerned.
Old patterns of handling business matters & partnerships, joint finances, legal contracts, parental obligations, debts & duties will be dissolving while Neptune transits PISCES (2012–2026) — hopefully being replaced with a healthier, more spiritually-oriented perspective. Strive for clarity & accountability in all your alliances (get things in writing)! Since you’re prone to being too trusting now, only align with those who are responsible and reliable — and have your best interests at heart.
With Uranus now in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll begin to experience an element of change & unpredictability in your public and professional life. As this new 7-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities and possibly moving into some different career directions. Advanced technologies could play an important role in these new developments.
While Saturn is in AQUARIUS (3/21–7/1/20 and 12/16/20–3/7/23), you’ll be restructuring the way you relate to others. During this 3-year period, you’ll be committed to strengthening & solidifying your one-on-one relationships. A serious, long-term partnership could develop during this cycle. Mature, responsible individuals will be the ones who can provide the balance you require for your personal development and emotional well-being at this time. Accept nothing less than mutual respect & trust, honest communication and accountability in your close relationships! Clear the decks of those who aren’t reliable or interested in your highest good. Productive teamwork interactions can become an important part of your life.
With Jupiter now also in AQUARIUS (your opposite sign), it’s time to join forces rather than going it alone (from 12/19/20—5/13/21 and from 7/28/21—12/28/21). Partnerships of all types can bring about much personal growth. By aligning with positive, encouraging and knowledgeable individuals, you can lighten your load, lift your spirits and increase your self-awareness. Teamwork is the key! You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (1/5/09—1/17/2010).
Once Jupiter takes its initial steps into PISCES (5/13—7/28/21), it will be an opportune time to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements. It also could be a fortunate cycle to refinance, take out a loan, make a long-term investment or embark on a successful business or marital relationship.
