Hey Aries. So you kick the month off with your ruling planet Mars in your sign and your first house of you ! Yourself your identity. This is super exciting for you as you’ll have action-packed dynamic Mars with you for 6 whole months! Most unusual for Mars as he normally whizzes round the sky. But he’s going to give you an extra boost of energy to spice up the second half of this year. Then we get even more excitement with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn in your 10th house of career and status on July 5th. The effects of the decisions you make around this time with regard to your career will have a far-reaching affect. Mercury goes direct again in your 4th house of home on the 12th July so a chance to reconnect with your loved ones at home for quality time. On 20th July we have this month’s New Moon in Cancer again in your area of home life so new beginnings maybe a new residence but a general sense of life relaxing and lightening up. So all in all Aries an easier time for to enjoy a cooling summer drink relax a bit as things are going to really hot up soon.
Hey Taurus! Mars has now moved into Aries your 12th house of the inner workings of your mind and your hidden depths. I think Mars has come in to wake up your psyche and spur you into action to start believing in your private dreams and how you can indeed break out of your self made prison. Mars is there for 6 months so you don’t have to rush but he will help you prepare to take off next year. We have yet another Lunar Eclipse with the full moon in Capricorn in your 9th house of higher learning and travel on July 5th. Full Moons are about completion but the eclipse tells me your doubting that you are ready to acknowledge that you DO know what you know and that the knowledge you have gleaned is solid and it’s time to walk your talk.
Mercury goes direct again in Cancer in your third house of communication on July 12th so you’ll be definitely ready to walk your talk by then and it’s followed up later in the month on July 20th with a beautiful New Moon bringing new opportunities with communication and you’ll be able to sensitively move forward and get your point across.
Hey Gemini! With the attractive planet Venus in your sign all month I think you’ll be feeling pretty good about yourself. I think people will be drawn to you like bees around the honeypot! You might even attract some money. On July 5th there’s a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 8th house Capricorn of other people’s money joint finance and the 8th house can be sexual desire. So you take your pick of what you’d like this Full Moon to be about for you just bare in mind it’s about endings and completion and just make sure with that eclipse energy you’re not preventing the right way for things to go.
Have a think back to January this year and that might give you a clue.
On July 20th there is a New Moon in your second house of finance and possessions so I suspect there will be encouraging news around for you then and also with Mercury now direct this will see an end to hold-ups and that what is owed to you comes. And you’re in for an exciting busy time also with Mars now in Aries in your 11th house of hopes, wishes and being part of larger groups of people so I think things are going to get busy, busy, busy.
