Notes/Overview: In July 2012, a Full Moon occurs in the sign of Capricorn on July 3rd, on the same day that Mars leaves Virgo after a lengthy stay in the sign and enters Libra. Uranus turns retrograde on the 13th. Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Leo on the 14th, and will remain retrograde until August 8th. Mercury will spend an unusually long time in the sign of Leo (from June 25th to August 31st). Jupiter quincunxes Pluto on the 18th. A New Moon occurs in Cancer on July 19th. Jupiter sextiles Uranus but also sesquiquadrates Saturn on July 21st.
This month, you’re less hung up on the details of your life and you feel decidedly more outgoing and communicative, dear Aries. For some time now, you have been wrestling with all sorts of small but irritating problems, from health to work. While the pace of your life is unlikely to slow down significantly, your area of focus brings you out from hiding in July. This month is expressive and romantic, and your social life is up and down, but at least it is active! Financial gain could come from communications or siblings, and so can love opportunities.
Romance settles down this month after a long period of excitement, but also unrest and uncertainty, dear Taurus. Work heats up – it not only picks up pace, it is more demanding on several levels now. While you prefer that all areas of your life are stable and routine, this might help feed your increased desire to make money and accumulate new possessions. Be more cautious physically, particularly from the 17-19. Money-making ideas can come from dreams or from something you remember from the past.
Your life is becoming considerably more exciting, dear Gemini. You are kinder, friendlier, and less focused on minor concerns in favor of the bigger picture. You could learn something surprising about shared resources around the 3rd. You concern yourself less with domestic matters and more with recreation and entertainment. July puts the spotlight on money matters, personal possessions, sensual pleasures, and financial security. Energy levels this month are increasing but still not super high, so take some time out from the busy pace of your life to catch your breath.
July is a power month for you, dear Cancer, but it is also likely to be stressful at times. You have the chance to show your creativity on the job this month. Advances or bonuses may be in the offing in the first week of the month, after which things settle down considerably. Something from your past could resurface this month, but avoid dwelling on it. Instead, forgive yourself, learn from it, and move forward. A partner can have a surprising revelation on the 3-4. Home life becomes more animated and family life demands more of your time.
A quieter period in your life is in store until July 22nd, dear Leo, after which life begins to play in your style. The rest and privacy you need is yours at the beginning of July, although there are plenty of stimulating dramas playing out around you. There are no shortage of invitations and things to do – it is more about your ability to pick and choose. Secrets and whispers delight this month, and you may willingly make a few sacrifices to be with a special someone. You meet with perfectionist standards at work, but you are certainly worrying less about money this month.
This month, expressing your uniqueness is especially important to you, dear Virgo, and the need to work cooperatively within the framework of a group of people is likely to figure strongly. Your independent side has been prominent in recent months, but this month, you are softening rough edges. Nevertheless, you are still fighting for your rights, and you are demanding a show of respect. Around the 3-4, a surprising romantic proclamation or revelation could occur. Work matters are more pleasant in July and your drive to improve them further is strong.
People in your life have been growing accustomed to a more withdrawn and even serious quality to you recently, dear Libra, but with Mars moving into your sign (active until the last week of August), a decidedly more confident and assertive side emerges. Your domestic life demands more attention from you on the 3-4. Recent relationship pressures tend to ease. Receiving news about the past that gives you new information about your current circumstances figures strongly this month, and career matters are likely to push forward as a result.
Partnership matters are moving forward this month, and so are your finances, dear Scorpio. However, you and a partner could go head-to-head mid-month on a financial matter. The intensity of the confrontation could pull out some deep issues that have needed release for some time. It’s likely to push your relationship forward by leaps and bounds. Love is private, intimate, and passionate this month – share yourself with bravery. Accept support if offered, as good things come from others at this point in your life. From the 17-19, watch for indiscretion especially in the workplace.
Early July is strong for love relationships, flirtations, and your social life, dear Sagittarius. In fact, your social life, which may have been on the dry side in recent months, is picking up pace considerably all month. A partner (business or personal) may be re-visiting old issues that you’d rather forget altogether, however. Money matters that seemed to have been settled in the past crop up again. Tensions about money can rise from the 17-19, particularly involving friends and children. Overall, however, your gracious manner this month attracts positive experiences.
Your needs and desires might often seem eclipsed by those of a partner this month, dear Capricorn. Or, in general, your personal needs and plans are on the back burner for now. However, relationships with others require some attention, and playing a supportive role is your best bet for setting things right. All is resolved in your favor by the last week of July–a time when financial matters begin to peak. Recognition–both personal and professional–is likely on the 3rd. Ambitions charge up this month, but watch for impulsive moves and reactions, especially around the 17-19.
While work demands more than the usual attention this month, dear Aquarius, July brings good energy for breaking out of routines and enjoying yourself more fully. Recently, you’ve been rather content to stick around the neighborhood and to follow the same old routine, but the urge for adventure and experience can arise suddenly early month. Many recent pressures tend to ease for you this month, and this frees you up to explore recreational activities. While romance is favored, a more committed relationship may involve tricky mixed signals from mid-month.
You’ve been pouring a lot of energy into relationships in recent months, dear Pisces, and it hasn’t been entirely of the pleasant variety. Announcements can be made on the 3-4 that involve a friend, but this can also be a time that a friendship matter comes to a head. For some of you, your intimate life heats up in July. Although money and power dynamics may still need straightening out, you can experience more excitement and intimacy with a special someone this month. Watch for mixing friendship and money on the 17-19. All month is strong for home decorating and entertaining from home.
