Astro Overview for July

From the point of view of its astral offer, July is not a rich month, but it certainly does not lack intensity. Some planets return to direct motion, others, more important, start retrograding, and still others form aspects that operate with very powerful energies, which we must be very careful how we manage. But let’s take a closer look at what’s coming in July:

Saturn starts retrograding through Capricorn: social and professional challenges

The second day of July also brings about its most important astral event. It involves the beginning of Saturn’s retrograde transit through his nocturnal domicile, the sign of Capricorn. This indicates a period in which we are faced more often than usual with shortcomings, obstacles or other problems that make things move in the direction or at the speed different than the one we expected. This is a good time to reflect on what it would be good to give up in order to gain something new.

Mercury Rx (Cancer) square Mars (Aries): words that hurt

During or around July 8, Mercury retrograde from Cancer forms a tense square aspect with Mars from Aries, which means we may be tempted to make statements that could hurt those around us. Therefore, it is very important to run through the filter of reason any comment before verbalizing it. Otherwise, we could damage our relationships with some sensitive people, who would otherwise have helped us in countless ways.

Sun (Cancer) square Neptune Rx (Pisces) and Mercury reverts to moving directly through Cancer: intuition and creativity

During or around July 12, we feel the influence of two important cosmic events. On the one hand there is the harmonious trine formed by the Sun in cancer with Neptune retrograde from Pisces. It brings about extra inspiration, creativity, but also an inner voice that we hear more easily. From July 12, Mercury transits the sign of Cancer in a direct motion, which helps us to express our feelings more easily and to keep them better under control.

Sun (Cancer) opposition Jupiter and Saturn Rx (Capricorn): tough choices

During or around July 14 and 20, we may feel the effect of the tense aspects of opposition between the Sun in Cancer, and Jupiter and Saturn retrograde from Capricorn. These aspects intensify our feelings our response to them will be just as prompt. Specifically, we tend to take personally things which would not otherwise have bothered us. Or maybe we are indifferent to things that, as a rule, made us sensitive or maybe did not leave us completely cold.

Venus (Gemini) square Neptune Rx (Pisces) and Mercury (Cancer) square Mars (Aries): relational tensions

During or around the July 27, the atmosphere is precipitated by two tense square aspects. First of all, there is Venus in Gemini squaring Neptune retrograde in Pisces, which could make us more naive and gullible in relation to others. The second aspect of this type is that formed between Mercury in Cancer and Mars in Aries. This one reiterates the same tendency to be insensitive in the way we communicate and approach some rather complex topics.

Mercury (Cancer) opposition Jupiter Rx (Capricorn) and Mercury (Cancer) trine Neptune Rx (Pisces): a practical yet intuitive vision

During or around July 30, Mercury in Cancer forms an opposition with Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, which means that the way we communicate is one that tends to send mixed signals. On the same day, the harmonious trine between the same Mercury in Cancer and retrograde Neptune in Pisces is also perfected, which means that we will be able to calibrate our speech, to make sure that we do not hurt those around us. But this involves showing empathy.

As is evident from the paragraphs above, the middle of this year’s summer is not very demanding from an astrological point of view. But as strong essences are kept in small bottles, it is important not to underestimate the effect it could have on our lives. Therefore, it is recommended that we show a responsible attitude towards everything we undertake this month.

Gemini

From July 1, Saturn begins to retrograde through the house of resources you own and/or earn with your life and/or business partner. This means that partnerships may not give you the same level of earnings as before.

During or around July 12, earning opportunities may appear through overtime or extraprofessional projects. Also from July 12, Mercury moves directly through the house of money and goodsin your solar chart, which means that more such chances of winning may cross your path. However, around July 14, the number of expenses and payments may increase.

During or around July 20, you are again faced with situations in which you have to take some important sums out of your pocket to pay for various services.

It is also recommended to avoid investments, because payments reappear on July 30. However, these are followed by financial opportunities.

During or around July 30, a difficult period awaits you at work, and your productivity does not help you to overcome it more easily.

During or around July 27, do not let jealousy influence your attitude in your relationship and do not show possessiveness towards children. Also, be careful not to quarrel with your co-workers.

Astro Tips & Tricks

When Mercury is retrograde, it's advisable that you pay more attention to both the verbal and nonverbal messages that you send. Differences of opinion may arise when you least expect it. If you're willing to listen to what the other person has to say and you're careful not to say things that can be misinterpreted, there's a good chance that something good will eventually come of any disagreement.
