Welcome to July. After the upheaval of recent months with Mercury retrograde and a double whammy of full moons in Sagittarius, July is a month to take stock of what's going on at home. With a new moon, Mercury and Venus in Cancer on 4th July the month starts with a focus on cleaning house, beautifying our homes and keeping in touch with our nearest and dearest as priorities. This goes for individuals, but also rings true for the UK where, post-Brexit, attention will be focused on how home policies develop from now on.
Finally out of retrograde or reverse, Mars is direct in Scorpio, so undercover money matters and power plays need to be resolved at speed, and passions and tempers could run hot. From mid-month things become lighter and more fun, as the sun, chatty Mercury and loving Venus shift into flirtatious Leo just as a full moon hits serious Capricorn on 19th July. Often seen as a bit of a killjoy sign, Capricon in fact stands for tradition and decorum, so a tense square aspect between the straightlaced moon and rebellious planet Uranus could spell fireworks. But after recent personal and global tensions a party mood could be just the breath of fresh air the doctor ordered. The sun moves into virtuous Virgo again next month, so the next few weeks are the best opportunity we'll all get to let our hair down for a while.
As July ends, that crazy planet Uranus turns retrograde (backwards) in Aries. Areas of life that have been full-on and unpredictable are likely to get less so, or life could just get odd in different ways. Watch for updates here for the ramifications of Uranus-inspired weirdness for your sign as well as all your other essential astrological news!
