July 2019- PISCES
Months that feature eclipses can be exciting or tense. It depends on the issues that surface and where the eclipse falls in your chart. The solar eclipse in Cancer on July 2 should be positive for you. Opportunities surface in romance and in your creative endeavors. You could meet your soul mate, your company is featured prominently in social media or your novel or book sells. Thanks to a friendly beam from Uranus, these opportunities surface suddenly, and you just have to be ready to seize them.
The lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16 may prompt you to recognize that the work you do isn’t your passion. Perhaps you’ve known this for some time, but just didn’t want to acknowledge it. You may feel that your creative talents are “eclipsed” by the work you’re doing. The good news is that the realization urges you to take steps to rectify the situation. Start sending out resumes or figuring how out you can do what you love. It’s also possible that you recognize the truth about a particular friendship, that the person isn’t who you thought.
Mars enters Leo on July 1 and from then until August 18, you’re a spinning dervish of action and forward momentum. You meet deadlines, sign up new clients, pitch ideas, make submissions, hire new employees and land auditions. From July 27 to August 18, Mars and Venus travel together, and whenever the cosmic lovers do that, it’s terrific for your love life and your creative drive.
But before Venus enters Leo, it transits Cancer from July 3–27, marking one of the most romantic and creative times for you all year. During these few weeks, you’re more self-confident and optimistic. Your magnetism attracts the right people at the right time. Your partner is especially attentive, and your relationship with your kids is smoother. Life generally feels good, and you’re pleased with where you are and where you’re headed.
Mercury’s retrograde begins on July 7, in Leo, and yes, things will slow down between then and July 31, when it turns direct in Cancer. Look over my recommendations for Mercury retros and follow the suggestions for navigating this period without losing your mind! Since it occurs in your work area, be particularly diligent about following directions, being on time and communicating clearly. If you’re self-employed, work with the clients and projects you have.
On July 31, Mercury turns direct in Cancer, and there’s a new moon in Leo. You know what to do now that Mercury is direct—everything that was placed on a back burner during the retrograde! This new moon is one to anticipate.
Thanks to Venus’s close conjunction, you can expect new romance, a new job, a new boss and perhaps even a promotion.
