With June closing out on a cool note as Mars began its two-week long retrograde, July is sure to heat things up. As the solar eclipse on the 13th gets closer, get ready to confront both the positive and negative aspects of your lifestyle. Keeping that in mind, the Pisces moon kicking off this month should encourage you to take risks and explore new ways to enjoy this summer. Without further ado, here are your horoscopes for the month of July!
Cancer: June 21 to July 22
You’ve likely been enjoying the rewards from your hard work since June, and luckily for you, this time of celebration won’t end anytime soon. You’ll be feeling confident, courageous and outspoken with your good fortune, so don’t be afraid to demonstrate it! By the end of the month, the sun will move into your second house of value and possession, so keep an eye out for more earning opportunities.
Leo: July 23 to August 22
The upcoming solar eclipse will affect your sign the most, since it’s your ruling planet. However, eclipses are necessary in life, and even you need to take a break from the limelight every once and a while. This is a good time to plan a vacation or weekend getaway, to give yourself some time to rest and recover while embarking on a new adventure.
Virgo: August 23 to September 22
At the beginning of the month, a romantic moon could light up your sky with fireworks between you and your current interest. The solar eclipse might stir up some drama with your friends and family, so be ready to lend an ear and listen. Although you’re the perfect sign to offer support, make sure to set some boundaries to protect yourself from becoming a doormat.
Libra: September 23 to October 22
A romantic moon also shadows your sign at the beginning of the month, promising chemistry and attraction with someone special. From there health is your summer goal, so giving yourself a bit of balance (something your sign excels at!) could work in your favor. Maintaining your cool, calm, and collected persona will be especially challenging during the solar eclipse, so take some time to reflect and focus on keeping the chaos from getting to you.
Scorpio: October 23 to November 21
The solar eclipse will land in your house of death, sex and rebirth, which could mean great things for you this month despite its ominous sounding appearance. If it feels as though it’s time for a change, take advantage of your sign’s confidence, make plans, and accomplish those unfinished tasks on your to-do list.
Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21
July might be a rough month for you with the arrival of the solar eclipse, so don’t be afraid to take a step back and look at the big picture. If you share finances with a partner, think about sitting down with them and re-evaluating your budget. The lunar eclipse on the 27th will fall in your house of communication, which could bring even more monetary matters to fruition. It might feel overwhelming at the time, but this step will help you to sort out your financial and personal goals.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19
This month brings the start of a period of romantic growth for you, Capricorn. You’ve been attracting all kinds of potential partners, regardless of whether you’ve been picking up on their flirty hints or not. The solar eclipse on the 13th might cause you to consider getting serious with one of your prospects, however. To avoid wasting time, focus on the frontrunners who are “here for the right reasons” so to speak, in order to make the relationship stronger.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18
If you’re not happy at your workplace, Aquarius, the solar eclipse on the 13th will help you strategize a big move. You could start rethinking how much you like your current position, and whether or not you’re suited for the industry as a whole. It may be because you’re feeling underappreciated, so don’t be afraid to approach your superiors to advocate for a raise or promotion. If that’s not the case, brush up on your resume and social media presence; you never know what opportunities could be awaiting you.
Pisces: February 19 to March 20
July’s solar eclipse on the 13th won’t be earth-shattering for you, Pisces. You may notice that your friends and co-workers are a bit more stressed than usual, so the best thing you can do is have patience and lend some support. The solar eclipse will also be occurring in your house of creativity, encouraging you to start that project you’ve been putting off. With hard work and planning, you’ll never know where that passion and creativity will take you.
Aries: March 21 to April 19
Mar’s retrograde is directly affecting your sign this month, meaning you might be feeling a bit off-kilter. But hey, weird can be good, allowing you to see old problems from a new angle or perspective. This shift could bring on a new group of friends or new inspiration if you’re willing to put yourself out there. The solar eclipse on the 13th will be in your house of home and relationships, so take some time to visit family members or spruce up your living space.
Taurus: April 20 to May 20
July will be a tough month for you, Taurus, as the solar eclipse lands in your house of home and family. Prepare yourself for family drama, by brushing up on those listening skills. Make yourself available and be there for your siblings, but set boundaries if you need to. The lunar eclipse on the 27th extends this time of change into your house of career, so review your resume and enhance your skill set to get through these challenging times. Although it’s important to take some time for yourself, don’t neglect your friends either since they will serve as a great, grounding support system.
Gemini: May 21 to June 20
During the month of July, take a good, long look at your finances. The solar eclipse on the 13th will bring a tax season for your sign, asking you to re-evaluate your spending habits and redirect your savings to give yourself greater benefit in the long run. You aren’t usually a planner, but consider setting up something simple so you have finances to fall back on. Whether you’re looking to book a vacation, save for a new apartment or house, or budget for a wedding, writing your goals down will make it that much easier for you to achieve them.
