Summary: A month focused on long-term goals, friendships, and philanthropy. Mid-month, a creative project, pregnancy, or love affair may culminate, and whatever it is could prove to be more expensive than you anticipated. Jupiter’s move into Leo at the end of the month signifies a slowing down period for you, as you wrap up old projects and relationships over the next year.
Extended Horoscope: On the very first day of the month, your ruler, Mercury, goes direct in your career sector, so if you’ve been looking for jobs or uncertain about which direction your career is headed in, you should now gain clarity.
In fact, you may hear good career news on July 4th, as the interplay between your ruler, Mercury, and the North Node in your income sector indicates you may even get a raise or new job. Happy 4th of July, indeed! On July 6th, Venus in your professional sector smooches Uranus in your other money house, doubling down on this possibility!
July 13th may prove to be another good day for your finances, as Mars conjuncts the North Node in your income sector, and the pair reach out to Venus in your career house. It seems VIPs are noticing your hard work and want to reward you for it!
Backing up a little bit, the new moon on June 27th blew a breath of fresh air into friendships and long-term goals, and because it came arm in arm with Neptune in your partnership sector, it seems that you’re ready to make a deeper commitment in love or business. You may have gotten engaged to your boo or started a company with a business partner.
Your focus will turn even more closely to plans and friends as more planets crowd into Cancer throughout the month. Your ruler, Mercury, joins on July 13th, while Venus does so on July 18th. And as I’m sure you remember, Jupiter has been this sector since July 2013.
Cancer and the 11th house rule not only friendships, goals, and hopes and dreams, but also technology, philanthropy, and group collaborations, so this month all of these things appear to be front and center for you.
July 8th and July 24th may bring good news to these kinds of plans and commitments, as the Sun and then Mercury send beautiful beams to Saturn in your communication sector. More good news may follow on July 19th and July 24th, when Mercury and then Venus smooch Neptune in your relationship house. All of these days are positive for travel and friendship as well.
Do be careful for some overlapping challenges on these days however, as it’s possible that trips or plans will cost you a pretty penny. This is due to the Sun and Mercury’s irritation with Uranus in your 8th house of shared finances on July 8th and July 24th.
July 15th and July 18th are two more troublesome days for your bank account, when the Sun will be angry with planets in your income sector. Again, it appears that a long-term goal, social engagement, or project could prove to be more expensive than you thought.
Additionally this month, we have the mighty Pluto in your love and children sector facing off against several planets in Cancer throughout the month, pitting group plans and projects against personal ones. It’s possible you feel torn between your boo and your friendships, or that a company or project you’re working on is at odds with the needs of your children or personal creative projects. You are likely to feel this influence most on July 4th, when the Sun will oppose Pluto; on July 21st, when your ruler, Mercury, will oppose Pluto, and on July 27th, when Venus will oppose Pluto.
In fact, a love, child, or creative issue will come to a head on July 12th, when a full moon occurs in this sector holding hands with Saturn in your communication sector. You may take a trip with or make a commitment to your boo, work on a creative writing project, or hear news regarding a child or pregnancy.
Again, it seems that whatever comes up could be expensive, as the full moon angers Uranus in in your sector of joint finances. It seems a child or leisure activity could prove to be costly, or perhaps you argue with your boo over who pays for what. Uranus will actually turn retrograde (I know- it never ends!) in this same sector of joint money on July 21st, so over the next five months you may end up merging your finances with another person, receiving money from a parent or spouse, or reviewing your investments. In fact, you can expect big news on this front in October with the Aries lunar eclipse.
The big news of the month- heck, of the whole year!- is good-luck Jupiter’s entry into Leo and your 12th house of endings on July 16th. Admittedly, this isn’t the most glamorous position for Jupiter, but it’s great for Virgo’s who enjoy working on solitary projects, are trying to get over a toxic person or habit, or need to recover from a health issue. Jupiter will also help you end old projects, relationships, and situations that no longer serve you, in order to help you give birth to new, better projects, relationships, and situations.
The great thing about having Jupiter in the sign right behind yours is that now Jupiter is THAT much closer to your own sign of Virgo. Summer 2015 will be your time to shine, so use the next 12 months to work hard on your dreams. You may just find that next year they come true!
Use the gorgeous new moon that appears this month on July 26th to wrap up this chapter of your life so that you can prepare for a brand new 12 year cycle in Summer 2015.
Just be careful, as Mars will square the moon from your communication sector, indicating that transportation and writing projects may prove troublesome for you at this time. Watch that you don’t put your foot in your mouth, and be sure to check your tires and change your oil if you go on a road trip. Commitments made at this time may prove problematic.
Looking ahead, be sure to keep your eyes open on August 25th, when Mars and Saturn will collide in your communication and transportation house and both will anger Venus in your closure sector. This energy is ripe to cause problems with trips, transportation, siblings and written projects, so prepare now!
