July 2010 Overview Horoscopes
The following are short overview horoscopes for an upcoming month, written by Annie Heese for Essential Magazine. For our detailed July monthly horoscopes, see Monthly Horoscopes from July 1.
You are spirited and enthusiastic this month, dear Aries, feeling personally on top of your game. You are reinventing yourself, and while this fact doesn’t always go over well with a partner, it’s something you have to do. You could be seeing a partner as holding you back from discovering yourself. Some of you could be feeling lonely, whether you are partnered or not. However, your enthusiasm for self-discovery is undeniable. Family matters are in the spotlight in July. Changes in the organization of your home or with family members may be in order mid-month. Something has to change. The 8-10 could bring some disappointments in love, but nothing you can’t handle. Work is super busy and you’re pouring a lot of energy into keeping a fast-paced daily routine, tending to health and fitness, and zipping through work projects. You may be in the position to prove yourself on the job. Some paranoia about your position could figure now. Intellectual companionship is easy to find this month.
Pressure in a romance (or with children for some of you) is definitely easing this month, and you’re super-charged and ready to enjoy yourself, dear Taurus. Important conversations and communications occur in July that require special attention. Some of you have decided to begin new studies and to hone your skills. It’s a good time for these matters, particularly since August brings whirlwind energy and stamina for working through projects. While family matters are certainly more comfortable than they were earlier in the year, more adjustments and changes are in order. Many of you have moved home or will soon, and a lot of energy is going into getting settled. A family member is a great friend and ally this month, and could inspire a new money-making idea. Again this month, a lot is going on inside and in your dreaming world. Hunches are powerful and hard to ignore. In fact, feelings that come seemingly out of the blue or through dreams could totally change your outlook and push you onto an entirely new path.
Finances are not without concern for you this month, dear Gemini, but there is excellent energy with you for making a fresh start. A new budget or plan is in order. Luckily, good advice is easy to find now. Many of you will be redecorating and reorganizing your homes in July. It’s also a strong month for entertaining and peace-making with family. Challenges in your love life or with children that you first faced some months ago resurface in the last week of July. You are required to take action and bring more structure and reality to your life. Luckily, you are feeling especially capable and composed. New friendships recently made or rekindled continue to figure strongly in your life this month, but some challenges are now present that don’t exactly squash your enthusiasm, but tame it somewhat. Financial backing or reliability of income sources might be in question in July. Personal energy is significantly improved now, as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. This extra “get up and go” does wonders for your outlook.
A Solar Eclipse occurs in your sign on July 11th. Before the eclipse is an excellent period for review, meditation, and any kind of purging activity that rids you of things that no longer serve you well. From the 11th, you shift gears. It’s all about you and your attitude now, and it’s time to reinvent yourself. As you make changes to how you approach the world, you will find that you attract different experiences and people into your life. Finances are very strong this month. People are supportive and offering good, objective advice. Pressures that you felt some months ago surrounding family and partnerships resurface towards the end of the month, signaling the need to take action. Facing important realities is part of the picture, and while it’s not always comfortable, it’s necessary and positive. Career matters remain super-charged and exciting in July, but hurdles and kinks in your plans might present themselves and force you to reassess matters. Again, it may not feel easy for the time being, but ultimately brings more maturity and realism to your plans.
Rest is in order for the first three weeks of July, dear Leo. You’re not exactly putting everything on hold, but you are taking more time for yourself to recharge. You may be talking ahead of yourself now, about things that you are not quite certain about. Financial worries that may have been plaguing you are lessened considerably. You’re feeling significantly more confident about your money-making abilities this month. The 8-10 can bring some disappointments and the 24-27 some seeming setbacks to plans, particularly those revolving around love, learning, and travel. These challenges are temporary and handling them with confidence brings you to a stronger and more mature position. You’re going to be the rock that others lean on in the coming months, and you enjoy this position! While love remains exciting, what you might have thought was out of this world might now seem only “good”, but once again, this improves your position and keeps you realistic. Friends find their way to you in July, and career matters are very strong.
July should be a strong month for you, dear Virgo. Making new connections, or cementing existing ones, is in store. The 11th is a great time for making a wish and coming up with an exciting new long-term plan or idea for the future. From the 10th, your charm and personal appeal skyrockets. A new look or manner is likely to be very successful now. If you want others to see things from your perspective, this is an ideal time. You have energy to spare and have few problems asserting your desires and needs. Fortunately, others are listening. Pressures are lifting from the 21st, and you are feeling stronger, more in control, and more mature as well. Friends are in need of attention but supportive. While it’s a good month for receiving gifts or bonuses, there can be some money worries. Plans or backing that have had you feeling enthusiastic may not look as promising as they did last month, but the good news is that adjusting your outlook to a more realistic one will bring rewards down the road.
Career matters are powerful this month, dear Libra. Changes in goals, plans, and priorities may be necessary. Taking the lead or receiving more attention might initially feel uncomfortable, but as soon as you begin to believe in yourself and have confidence in your abilities, others will return the respect. From November 2009 to April 2010, issues of independence and security surfaced, bringing some tension and indecisiveness to your life. These matters re-emerge now and demand more attention. You may be seeing circumstances for their flaws more than their overall worth, and this process is necessary in order for you to eventually get to a more balanced and realistic place. Tensions in relationships and family life are possible as you re-examine your position. Love is still exciting, but some problems may be revealed that keep you grounded in your expectations. The 26th could bring a romantic revelation. The last few days of July bring much energy and initiative, and will carry forward into August.
You are feeling quite enthusiastic and hopeful this month, dear Scorpio. Around the 11th, events are such that you see your life from a whole new — and more positive — perspective. Your career is growing and some shuffling around is likely now as priorities change. Make a point of spending time with friends or of being involved in group settings this month, if this doesn’t happen naturally. New ideas and inspiration can be found through your networking efforts. Work is busy but sometimes stressful. While work conditions have been looking especially promising, there are some kinks to work out, but these problems are designed to get you to a more realistic position. Treat added responsibilities as opportunities for future success. Much joy can be found through work in the coming year. Finances are similar. Changes in financial position are likely now, but these ultimately pave the way for increase. Love is mostly friendly in July, although the 8-10 can bring minor disappointments.
Energy levels continue to be strong for you this month, dear Sagittarius. Events are such, however, that tame some of the wild optimism you have been feeling. This is designed to get you on a more realistic track. Challenging or perplexing decisions may need to be made with regards to your social relationships or with children. Financial new beginnings may be in store for you in July. Circumstances require that you rethink your financial strategies. Debts and loans, financial backing, or a partner’s income are part of the picture. Develop strategies to cut out unhealthy dependencies and habits that prevent you from growing as a person. A lot of your energy is channeled into pursuing business and career goals, and you have charm working for you from the 10th on a professional level. You are entering a long-term cycle in which you are more capable of meeting your responsibilities and seeing the world in a more realistic way. Your thoughts are progressive this month and a partner is supportive of your goals, both spiritual and professional.
Getting your love life into order is a strong theme this month, dear Capricorn. Before the 11th, take the time to get in touch with your relationship needs so that when the eclipse in your partnership sector arrives on the 11th, you are ready to make a fresh start. Complicated decisions are likely in July revolving around learning and education. Some of you will be deciding whether a project or idea is worth pursuing any longer. A strong focus on career goals, along with the re-emergence of increased responsibilities and work loads, are in focus from the 21st. You may be feeling pressured or scrutinized, but the adjustments you make as a result will dramatically improve your potential for success. Finances remain strong this month and your financial position becomes clearer. July is an excellent month for romance and partnership. Your willingness to listen to and support a partner are key. Charm is natural, and personal stamina is strong. Socially, people are seeing you in a most positive light.
Work and love are strong themes for you this month, dear Aquarius. You are very busy taking care of day-to-day affairs, work projects, and health matters. You are called upon to deal with the details and practical side of everyday life, to become more organized, and to take charge of your routines. It’s time to formulate some clear goals and plans that get you back on track physically and mentally. Very good energy is with you regarding a partnership. While a little more patience is necessary, you are willing to listen and give support. You are entering a cycle in which you feel you are on solid ground. This comes as a relief after a long period of self-doubt and confusion about your long-term goals. Exciting new interests continue to motivate and stimulate you. Your heart is on your sleeve in the last week of July. Personal needs that have been neglected come up for attention and can no longer be ignored! Communication problems are very likely in the last two days of the month. Take care with your words and actions.
July is a good month for leisurely activities as well as work, dear Pisces. A lighter, less burdened feeling is with you this month, and more joy found in the work you do. You are finding your inner muse, and making a fresh start on a creative level. Some of you will experience a new beginning in a romance. Although your love life is likely to be changeable, good things are happening and others are finding you especially easy to be around. The harder lessons you have been learning about relationships and from others in recent years are wrapped up this month. A new level of maturity is with you. Romance is full-on in July, with lively conversations and much stimulation. Any recent problems in relationships are aired in July. Fortunately, you have all the skills at your disposal to iron out differences. Finances are still hopeful but circumstances are such that you must face a few realistic points and get over some hurdles before confidence comes to this area of life. Sources of income may seem limited for the time being as they are shuffled around.
