This Month’s Highlights
Horoscopes for the Month
Void of Course Dates this Month
On July 9th, the New Moon occurs in the sign of Cancer, prompting a new beginning. This is a time for feeding our foundation — all of that which we call home, including the foundation we’ve built inside ourselves, needs to be tended to and honored. It’s a time to recognize the importance of our family and our personal circle of friends and the security, sense of belonging, and safety we derive from them. We have the wherewithal and courage to pursue our desires and stick with our plans, but we should avoid jumping the gun. This New Mooon is widely opposite Pluto and harmonizes with Neptune. Venus is applying to a conjunction to Mars in Leo, and we’re feeling confident and ready to create, despite some feelings that others or our relationships are standing in our way. Mercury leaves its post-retrograde shadow two days before this date.
Chiron turns retrograde on July 15th, and will remain retrograde until December 19th. This cycle is good for introspection and reassessing the mental and physical health programs in our lives. We tend to look within for healing with Chiron retrograde.
On July 23rd, a Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius, reminding us of our needs for friendship, community, as well as impartiality and objectivity. We cannot lose sight of our larger goals and our need to give back to the community or group that supports us. The Moon can feel a little stuck as it’s between Pluto and Saturn. Otherwise, it’s a period of discovering our need for others or for more community involvement.
On the 28th, retrograde Jupiter returns to the sign of Aquarius. Jupiter moved on from the sign when it entered Pisces on May 13th. However, Jupiter turned retrograde early in its transit of Pisces in June, and it’s now returning to finish up its transit of Aquarius until December 28th. Jupiter in Aquarius encourages us to expand our minds, tolerance, and sense of fairness. We’re seeking social reform and positive, humanitarian action. We value freedom, individuality, fellowship, and group goals and visions.

This Month’s Overview Horoscopes
The following horoscopes outline how the above astrological influences might affect each individual sign.
Overview horoscopes fill in here as I write them, ideally during the week before the month begins. It is not unusual to see some signs temporarily missing as I usually write the twelve of them over the course of a few days, and I always start with the featured sign of the month (birthday month).
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Aries:
July puts a spotlight on your personal life, dear Aries. You’re in excellent shape for attending to your home, family, and personal needs this month. Improvements in your relationships with family, relatives, children, and love interests figure strongly.
People are attracted to your ideas, maverick side, uniqueness, and entirely original perspective. You enjoy increased motivation or opportunity to pursue a personal interest, hobby, or creative activity.
The New Moon on the 9th reminds you that your home is your base, and it's important to treat it as such. Working on it first can help other areas of life blossom. There can be a fresh start or new motivation related to improving your living conditions or arrangements, home matters, your domestic or personal life, sense of security or safety, and family connections. Energies are good for discussions about personal or family issues.
Your powers of attraction are through the roof all month, but particularly around the 12-13. Creatively speaking, you're raring to go. You want to stand out, shine, and innovate in fifth house areas, such as romantic relationships, creative projects or hobbies, entertainment, and personal pastimes. You're unlikely to accept a static, dull, or lifeless approach to any of these things.
The connections you make now are rewarding, and in some cases, profitable. You're demonstrating confidence in yourself and the people around you. Others, especially love interests or partners, are receptive to your advances, and you can be particularly persuasive. People are magnetically drawn to you, and creative work is appealing.
Chiron, currently transiting your sign, turns retrograde on the 15th, and the healing energy you've been radiating turns inward--it's a time for working on healing yourself. People have been seeking your good vibes, assistance, healing powers, and advice, and it's appropriate now to get in closer touch with your own issues or a break from doing things for others.
Until the 21st, you have lovely Venus in arguably the best position of your solar chart, second only to Venus gracing your sign. This transit enhances and supports your popularity and likability. You're smoothing over your relationships and attracting mutually beneficial friendships. Artists and lovers get extra attention and positive feedback at this time. You are abuzz with fun, playful, and flirty energy. Spending time with children, writing, decorating, creating, vacationing, and enjoying hobbies are in the spotlight.
There's a strong emphasis on your romance and creativity sector all month. Transits awaken your desires and encourage you to pursue your passions. Indeed, there can be some obstacles or delays. Ideally, these serve to increase your maturity and humility. Attempts to strengthen your plans made now bring rewards down the road. As excited as you may be about a creative or romantic pursuit these days, responsibilities or delays can enter the picture, which can be time-consuming. A building sense of feeling freer after you turn a corner can guide you now. Aim to examine burdens or fears that prevent you from loosening up.
While Venus and Mars leave your sector of joy on the 21st and 29th, the Sun and Mercury begin their transits on the 22nd and 27th! These further motivate you to get creative or romantic, share your ideas, seek more fun and channels for self-expression, and pursue a hobby, recreational activity, or creative project. You can feel exceptionally romantic or confident and may be itching to express your feelings. You can produce some wonderful writing now, or you may enjoy some fun projects, hobbies, and pastimes. The power of your words is evident now, bringing new opportunities into your life, and word of mouth works well for you, too.
Venus moving into your work and health sector on the 21st can mean bringing more harmony to your daily routines, which is fruitful. You can turn even complex tasks into fun exercises now. There can be a social theme to your pursuit of health or work goals, possibly connecting you with companions or friends through these endeavors. Mars moves into this sector on the 29th, motivating you further.
The Full Moon on the 23rd can bring a turning point or illumination to a friendship or project. There can be revelations, unveilings, and important discoveries related to creative endeavors, your love life, relationship with children, networks, friends, and goals. This Full Moon is about being true to yourself and, by extension, to others as well. Jupiter moves back into this area of your chart on the 28th, where it will stay for five more months. You could be dusting off happiness goals and pursuits that you recently put on a shelf.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Taurus:
Your personal life is in the spotlight in July, dear Taurus. While it's not an ideal period for concentration and focus, it can be excellent for getting odds and ends done. You're feeling eager and enthusiastic about picking up handy information, boosting your knowledge, and sharpening your skills this month. You can also enjoy pouring more energy and creativity into your home life.
Mars pushes its way through your home and family sector most of July, insisting that you get organized and active with loved ones or around the home. You're motivated to improve home life and straighten things out with family, if necessary. Home-related projects can be satisfying. With more passion, vigor, and perhaps impatience here, there can be the occasional conflict or clash, but clearing the air can be rewarding, too. As well, Venus is in the same area of your solar chart until the 21st, helping smooth some of the rough edges.
At times this month, your heart may be ruling your head, but you have plenty of opportunities to channel this energy meaningfully. You're likely to develop exciting and creative ways to improve your home or enjoy family life. You're in good shape for decorating and organizing around the home, real estate, work from home, and discovering creative ways to interact with the people closest to you, whether they're family or roommates.
After the New Moon on the 9th, you're ready to make a significant change and perhaps put an end to a particular project or line of study to start in a brand new direction. Instead, you might approach studies or personal interests with fresh new energy. New avenues for communicating or getting around can open for you.
There can be long-term plans that leave you feeling excited about what's to come. Sharing ideas feels good and can lead to new understanding and a sense of camaraderie and support.
You're shining with romantic and creative expression from the 21st when your ruler, Venus, transits your sector of joy. Once Mars moves in here on the 29th, it can be an especially impulsive, dynamic, and flirtatious time when creativity blossoms, feelings are ripe and insistent, and desires come on powerfully. These transits excite your interest in romance or creative pursuits, hobbies, entertainment, and leisure. While you should watch for a tendency to make decisions based on the desire for others' appreciation or approval, kept in check, it's a beautiful time for exploring your creative side and allowing it to shine.
While Venus and Mars move out of your home and family sector on the 21st and 29th, the Sun and Mercury move in on the 22nd and 27th! A continued focus on your domestic or inner world figures strongly. You're in an excellent position to improve your living conditions and home life or make peace with yourself. A greater love of home life, even with all of your activities this month, figures strongly. You're seeking more quiet, downtime, comfort, and familiarity. You can enjoy some revealing and warm conversations.
The Full Moon on the 23rd can pull up buried feelings about a matter or new information that changes your life in subtle but notable ways. There can be a culmination of a project, recognition for your work, or a sudden realization of your true calling. Something reminds you of the need to pay more attention to your public or professional life. Still, goals seem to compete with one another when you have too much going on, so aim for a better balance. You can be excited to get in touch with your true feelings on a goal or ambition.
On the 28th, Jupiter returns to this area of your solar chart for a five-month stint, encouraging your sense of joy in pursuing long-term goals.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Gemini:
July is potentially excellent for moving into your comfort zone in many areas of your life, dear Gemini, but frequently stepping out of it on a mental level. You're learning a lot and picking up new information and interests this month. In fact, you're eager to take on new projects and come up with new and original ideas. You want to be the first to know!
The impulsive New Moon on the 9th can find you wanting to go in a brand new direction. It's a good time for taking charge of your income, personal possessions, valuables, and practical affairs. Your future security and present comfort are important themes in your life now. From the 11-27, Mercury in your resources sector is valuable for logical thinking applied to money, income, and valuables. Ideas for boosting business, your reputation, or your income can come to you now. With more faith in your abilities and worth, it's a good time to attract positive experiences.
Transits motivate you to learn, feed your curiosity, and connect. Your communications sector is well-lit all month: Venus and Mars are guests until the 21st and 29th, respectively. Later, the Sun and Mercury move in (on the 22nd and 27th). News can come in that opens doors. Relations with siblings, family, classmates, and acquaintances can improve with the new energy and enthusiasm you invest in these relationships. You have a can-do mindset that takes you places. Be careful that you don't make all of your decisions from the head or your ego and ignore your heart in the process, but mindful choices made now can be empowering.
You bring creativity to your communications and mental pursuits this month, and you're braver than usual to mix things up a little. In fact, you might often take the lead when reaching out to others to make a connection and initiating conversations. Still, there can be some reality checks if you've overestimated the time and energy you have for some projects. There can be a delay or the need to make a change or revision that consumes your time. However, you pick yourself up quickly.
You want to come out a winner on a mental level, with your studies, and in your communications. You might pay more attention to personal interests, learning, studies, and special projects. You seem to know what to say, when. You might take advantage and write up promotional material, creative works, overtures, and applications. Relationships with siblings, classmates, acquaintances, and neighbors can improve significantly with thoughtful attention now.
You can be feeling passionately about a project or learning endeavor. Conversations can be stimulating, and ideas are uniquely creative.
An introspective turn emerges slowly but surely as the month advances, starting with Venus, heading into your home and family sector on the 21st. It's a good time to find your emotional center and get in touch with your needs for safety, nurture, and security. There can be special attention to the home or family, important changes and discoveries, and fun creative changes and renovations.
Still, curiosity motivates you to connect and learn. Learning, paperwork, errands, and other "busy work" figure strongly. You're investing more of yourself in your daily affairs. You might be doing more reading, studying, teaching or guiding, thinking, and speaking.
The Full Moon on the 23rd can signal a turning point or confrontation with previously buried or overlooked emotions and issues in your life. Watch for arguments that are ultimately not worth your time. You are certainly interested in knowing and sharing the truth, but you may be going over the top. However, this can be a time of awards, announcements, publishing, promotion, commitments to learn, and epiphanies about belief systems and projects.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
July can be an exciting and dynamic month for you, dear Cancer, and it's a time for new beginnings. Your personal presence is large until the 22nd, and your voice is powerful from the 11-27. You’re in an excellent position for decisiveness and credibility--you're making a mark and leaving an impression.
This can be a time of actively pursuing more ways to make money or augment your income. Instead, you might more actively fight for or defend your value, perhaps calling out those who don’t treat you with the respect you deserve.
Although you can have fantastic new ideas about what you want, how to make money, and how to spend money, you're inclined to overdo in these areas. See if impulses pass quickly before jumping in. It's possible you acquire items of the dream variety, whether through generous gifts or from some self-pampering.
There could be a disagreement about money or resources, or you might feel blocked or opposed by limits to your freedom to seek pleasure, make a purchase, or pursue a particular goal.
However, you can bring great creativity and dynamism to your practical or business endeavors, discovering new ways to earn more and enjoying yourself. You might gain some praise or admiration for your creative talents, and a financial boost is possible as Venus and Mars meet in your resources sector. You can feel incredibly passionate about your job, business, and personal possessions — whatever you’re currently building can excite you now. Your heart is engaged, and feelings are intense but steady. You’ll see quite clearly which areas of your life can use some reinvention, and you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to business!
Chiron's retrograde is a little different, however. You may need to slow down when it comes to a career matter from the 15th. Your experiences now can prompt a desire to examine why you may have been overcompensating, procrastinating, or worrying about responsibilities, long-term goals, or reputation.
You continue to redefine certain friendships or see friends in a different light, which can be surprising and can keep your mind turning around quite a bit, especially around the 3rd and 8th.
The New Moon on the 9th occurs in your sign and is a high point for you--you can ride on its waves for several weeks. It’s a time for personal reinvention. Set your intentions on the New Moon but give it a bit of time before launching a new project, enterprise, or look. Renewal, coming out of the background, getting attention, making decisions, things moving forward – these are all strong themes now. You're seizing the moment and making an impression.
It's a good time for communicating, sharing, and expressing your ideas and beliefs. Learning, publishing, and transportation are favorable. The detours you take from your usual routine can be invigorating on a mental level.
The Sun begins its month-long transit of your resources sector on the 22-23, and in the coming weeks, you're seeking a little more security and predictability than usual. It's a good time to take stock, attend to your valuables, and get a better sense of what you can accomplish. Your view of your capabilities is marked and realistic during this stabilizing cycle.
Mars will move out of this area of your solar chart on the 29th, but the Sun and Mercury move in on the 22-23 and 27th, respectively. You become more invested in your things, values, money, valuables, and talents. You have the energy to invest in your plans and move them forward. Your thinking is especially sharp related to business. You have good money sense, and negotiations are favored. There may be an argument about money or property, however.
A Full Moon on the 23rd adds wide-open emotions to the mix! This can mean awakening to a desire or feeling that you’ve buried or overlooked, likely related to sharing, give and take, power dynamics, ownership, intimacy, and finances. There can be epiphanies about financial or emotional support and dependencies. Settling debt, receiving money or credit, shuffling money sources, or surprising relationship developments are possibilities now.
With Jupiter moving back into your intimacy sector from the 28th forward, you can be returning to a project or relationship matter that consumes much of your attention.
The last week of the month can bring to a head an issue brewing over an ownership or intimate matter. Feelings of independence and the desire to show that you can take care of yourself are prominent, while others might make tempting offers of support. In many ways, you're revving up, but it's best not to take things over the top. For example, if you've been overspending or over-borrowing, or too dependent on others for your happiness, then this is a time to recognize the need to bring things back into balance.
Enthusiasm builds regarding new ventures or enterprises related to communications, ideas, learning, and teaching or guiding. Your pioneering and progressive ideas are winners, and you can be successful in putting an inhibition related to expressing yourself behind you.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Leo:
Even with the Sun's undercover transit of your solar twelfth house until the 22nd, you're inclined to get some special attention in July, dear Leo. Venus and Mars are in Leo until the 21st and 29th, respectively, and they join forces on the 13th. You feel your desires, wants, and needs intensely as they come alive and want to express themselves. There is a real creative and attractive sizzle to your personality. People want to be around you and are drawn in by your lively spirit. You are magnetic and more noticeable than usual. With love, desire, and self-assertion, you are straightforward. Your magnetism is through the roof.
These transits help put you at the top of your personal game. People are drawn to your natural charm and appreciate the qualities you display most naturally. Others want to be around you and share some space with you in July, although you need to make some room for downtime.
Some healthy self-focus is entirely appropriate and quite beneficial. Configurations occurring now can bring positive attention and admiration your way. It’s a time for following your heart and expressing yourself more authentically and confidently.
Still, there can be moments when you can face blocks or limits and responsibilities that get in the way of your personal goals. You might view someone in your life as unnecessarily strict or unyielding. Recognize your own need for structure and rules in your relationships, and meet others halfway for best results. If duty and pleasure seem to be at odds, you may need to strike a compromise. Compromise and objectivity are both essential now in your dealings with others.
Another theme this month involves dealing with recent excess or a desire to shine in all sorts of areas, but time and energy are naturally limited. You're giving much of yourself, taking on a lot of work and daily activities, and enjoying the process, but there will come the point when you realize something has to give.
Spending can be a problem later in July and into August, but business ideas are golden, gifts may be coming in, and you can arrive at a good sense of movement on a venture.
Some soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent, especially around the New Moon on the 9th. You can have great ideas about matters of the past and how to learn from and move past them.
There can be slowdowns or delays related to travel, educational, or legal matters from the 15th. Certainly, there can be moments when you feel tied down, bored, or overworked, but once you accept a slower pace, you're in great shape to get things in order or reassess matters.
Even though you’re keeping a low profile for the first three weeks of the month, you’re not shy about pursuing your desires. You’re not at your most conciliatory, and that’s just fine at the moment. It's a generally good time to assert yourself, but you might want to do so when Mars in your sign is in favorable aspect, not so much when it’s arguing with other cosmic bodies, such as on the 1-2 and 28-29 when you’re inclined to push your luck.
You’re in excellent shape for boosting your income and managing your money from the 21st. This is set to increase even further next month, so you might aim to lay the groundwork for new beginnings and to gain your financial footing. Venus in your solar second house is quite remarkable for enjoying financial or emotional increase, abundance, and comfort.
Your ruler, the Sun, moves into your sign on the 22-23. This is the time to shine, reinvent yourself, or come into the light in some significant manner. You feel more in charge, relevant, and on top of things. Mercury in your sign from the 27th is excellent for mental renewal and decisiveness as well. It's a favorable time to present, share, and decide. It’s a time for being quoted and noted!
The Full Moon on the 23rd can bring on revelations and epiphanies about your feelings or a close relationship. There could be new clients, invitations, and sudden interest in your services, or simply your presence!
On the 28-29, watch that you're not acting out in ways that jeopardize an important partnership or relationship. Some of you could be torn between going your own way and including someone or boosting a relationship. Through some conflict or restlessness, you might see ways to make meaningful improvements to your life. Mars moves into your resources sector on the 29th, energizing your desire to get comfortable, make money, or organize your personal possessions.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Virgo:
An emphasis on your sector of connections, friendship, happiness goals, and dreams keeps the month lively, dear Virgo. With love and desire--and even money--a lot is going on behind the scenes, and there's a strong focus on the past. You are reconciling and processing your feelings, and you might feel strongly on the verge of a meaningful change.
You could feel a little impulsive around the New Moon on the 9th, which could result in a quick decision to change directions, but gradually, you find it more straightforward to make plans and strategies. There is a little more measure or deliberation to your dealings, and you're thinking in more practical terms.
You're increasingly seeking out some personal time, but you're also in an excellent position to shine socially. It's about grabbing quality time when you can. Mercury in Cancer from the 11-27 is valuable for networking. Your connections to others strengthen. You're picking up good ideas like a sponge at this time! There can be a pleasant focus on the exchange of ideas. Talking things through with a trusted friend can be satisfying. Ideas generated with or about relationships are winners. There might be a conversation that opens up doors.
Time to yourself is premium, with Venus and Mars in your privacy sector to the 21st and 29th, respectively, and the Sun and Mercury moving into the same area of your chart on the 22nd and 27th. Mars here most of July suggests a more subdued "you," which can be most welcome if you need a break. Vesta in Virgo to the 19th points to success working alone and putting extra effort into your pursuits. People notice you for your dedication, and it's an excellent time for creating goodwill, even if you can be a bit retiring. Minor health issues or low energy levels may emerge now, and slowing down makes sense. It's an excellent time to actively and confidently seek out time to yourself or for healing and renewal.
While the Sun and Mercury are grabbing you some attention, you are not moving full-speed ahead just yet. You need some time to process things before making the big decisions!
There is animation in your private life, whether this takes the form of powerful daydreams and intuition or a private, exciting connection. Your appeal is potently mysterious! You're discovering deeper feelings and desires. Coming to the point of understanding someone or something from the past, perhaps as far back as childhood, can empower you now.
From the 15th, issues of support and financing can emerge. Some backtracking or delays can figure strongly, but they're temporary. There can be a shift in how you habitually deal with support, dependency, intimacy, power sharing, and finances.
Venus moving into your sign on the 21st can inspire you to feel in your element. Others notice your finer qualities, want to be around you, and find you especially attractive! It's the perfect time to magnetize things your way.
The Sun begins its month-long transit of your privacy sector on the 22-23, which is another call to go within and enjoy some introspection. This is an excellent time to take things a little easier, enjoy some peace, and reflect on your year.
At the same time, a Full Moon occurs, potentially bringing news or a turning point related to health or work. Listen to your body's signals now. There could be some rushing to meet a deadline or a shuffling of priorities involved. With Jupiter moving back into your work and health sector on the 28th, you'll be more joyfully attending to your daily affairs. While your job or routines can bring you rewards, watch for a tendency to want to do more and more to the point of being overbooked. Wonderful energy for work and health is with you--it's excess that needs watching in the last week of July.
Mars moves into your sign on the 29th, launching an over six-week cycle of increased activity and a generally more direct, straightforward, and courageous approach to life. It’s a time for taking the initiative and connecting with your independent side.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Libra:
The month is busy for commitments to the outside world, dear Libra, both in terms of responsibility and pleasure! Sizzle and creative energy with friends and friends of friends are likely, and possibly, romantic opportunities through networking. You want to shine both personally and professionally, with your loved ones and with your reputation with others, and both drives are strong. After the New Moon on the 9th, you may come to a sudden decision to clear something away to start fresh, and this can involve a career path, work project, or life goal.
Later in July, matters of the heart and possibly the libido become a little more complicated, private, or confusing. You might struggle with whether or not you should go after what you want or have a hard time fulfilling your desires directly. Past matters, and possibly private ones, assume larger importance. There is an increased need to take the time to process your feelings and needs. Until then, you're exploring and discovering, keeping things open.
One of the themes in your life this month involves a dilemma between going your own way creatively speaking and collaborating. Both options look very attractive! A compromise would be ideal instead of burning the candle at both ends.
The month tends to favor outside obligations and enjoyments, and it seems appropriate to pour much of your energy into long-term goals, career, networking, and happiness goals. You may be working with others, but doing your own thing simultaneously — somehow, you are making this work. Teamwork or collaboration is working for you, but you may find yourself one step ahead regardless. You're coming up with loads of ideas about manifesting your dreams. It's a great time for pursuing a cherished cause. You instinctively know that persistent problems in your life require new responses, and you're ready to take action. This is a month of inspiration, hard work, and connections.
You may be thinking of side businesses or boosts to income. Certainly, with Mars in your eleventh most of the month, you're far more open than usual to experiment and innovate.
The New Moon on the 9th can stir your ambitions. Others notice you for your accomplishments. Ideas and methods for work, business, and health are in top shape. Throwing your energy into something that genuinely pleases you can reap the rewards.
While there can be times of conflicting feelings related to your social or love life, it's a generally dynamic and beautiful period for discovering people and projects you love or for moving a relationship or endeavor to a new level. Your powers of attraction run high. You're drawing people and things to you, but don't be afraid to reach out to others as well, as results are likely to be excellent. You and a partner might come to an understanding, and ties can strengthen as a result.
July can be a strong time for personal influence, particularly with friends and associates, as well as for agreements or negotiations. From the 15th forward, there can be some reason to return to old problems or reassess matters in a partnership or with contracts.
Venus moves into your privacy sector on the 21st, and while you're moving forward in many ways, you need a little more time to process feelings and understand your needs.
The Sun begins its month-long transit of your sector of community and friendships on the 22-23, extending your special attention to happiness goals and networking. If you've been neglecting your need for spending time with people and projects that help you de-stress, this is a time for a clear reminder. You could find yourself taking an interest in something entirely new now. The goal is to feel connected and contributing.
The Full Moon on the 23rd can point to discoveries or turning points with hobbies, creative pursuits, children, friendships, and long-term happiness goals or projects. A friend could push you in the right direction, whether directly or indirectly, regarding finding good outlets for your creativity and self-expression. This wake-up call is about taking care of your personal life. Romance might heat up, drawing your attention to it. Love matters can blossom or show signs of clearing, liberation, and forward motion. Jupiter moving into the same sector as this Full Moon can point to an old relationship or venture resuming.
In the last week of the month, applying extra effort behind the scenes can benefit you. There can be a sudden need to put a long-standing problem behind you or deal with a secret that has been weighing you down. You're highly motivated to free yourself in some manner, so take advantage! Resources are likely to reveal themselves.
You may be processing a lot, and not quite ready to make a big move or change. Be patient with this — it's an important process and a natural progression. Use this time to digest, reevaluate, and understand your desires.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Scorpio:
The month ahead especially supports learning, extracurricular activities, career, and reputation, dear Scorpio. You're in perfect shape for gaining new knowledge and pushing forward work or life path goals. You have a boost of clarity and courage on your side in July!
After the impulsive New Moon on the 9th, you may make a quick or sweeping decision to change a line of study, interest, or focus. Making long-term plans can be both successful and enjoyable. Your thinking might frequently turn to learning, travel, adventure, or exotic places and ideas, primarily because you are craving more from life than you usually do.
Generally speaking, as the month advances, you're more and more invested in your professional life, responsibilities, and image. However, these themes are with you throughout July in some shape or form. You are ready to make things happen, and you bring more muscle and intelligence to your work or pursuit of your longer-term goals. People notice your efforts, skills, and voice. You're ready to fight for what you want, although this is more likely to take the form of working hard to surpass competitors or your own personal best rather than out-and-out conflict.
Aim to benefit from the motivation and courage to go after what you want and deserve, but watch for impatience and undesired clashes with others for best results this month. You might use your stronger presence for causes you genuinely want to get behind.
Nurture your ambitions or go hard with your studies this month for good results. Venus and Mars join forces in your career and public sector, bringing dynamic energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and possibly passion to your reputation or career. Your unique appeal and magnetism can be on display in some way now, and creativity on business or promotional levels is in focus. You're pouring more energy, passion, and love into your work, business, or money-making pursuits. When you love what you do, you are the most successful!
You certainly have more grit and creative power at this time, and you benefit from really putting yourself out there. You are tired of the same old, same old, and ready to show a new face or attitude to the world. You have more courage to take the lead and show off your skills.
From the 15th, you might examine what it is about your daily routines (or your approach to them) that leaves you with a feeling that you haven't done enough or that you haven't been effective enough.
From the 21st, friendships can get a boost, people enjoy your company, friendly people come into your life, or acquaintances bring positive experiences.
Around the Full Moon on the 23rd, you can reach a turning point related to your home and family life. An epiphany can occur now as you get in touch with your true feelings on a matter. After facing or dealing with issues that you may have overlooked, buried, or brushed aside, you can more effectively move on. There can be a reminder to find a balance and bring more quality attention to your personal life.
Although this Full Moon is an important reminder to take care of home and family, the Sun begins its transit of your career sector around the same time, and then Mercury heads to the top of your solar chart on the 27th. You'll find yourself adapting and adjusting in ways that benefit your career, reputation, status, or long-term goals. It's an intelligent and practical time.
Push yourself to think of new ways to improve your life, but keep your feet on the ground and recognize your limits for best results. From the 29th, the desire to enjoy new experiences can strengthen, or you enjoy some energizing teamwork.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Sagittarius:
The month ahead brings lovely energy for attracting good things to you, dear Sagittarius. While you're coming across as confident, much is going on under the surface of things in the first weeks of July. It's a potentially beautiful month for devoting more time and energy to passion projects, learning, and extracurricular activities.
Although with some trial and error involved, it's also a healthy and dynamic month for relationships. You're attracting people into your life who make your life easier, and your appeal is easy and natural. The impulsive New Moon on the 9th can trigger a quick, sweeping decision--perhaps you want to leave something behind and start fresh now. If conditions have been frustrating, you might decide to go in an entirely new direction. It can otherwise be a time of motivation to start a financial plan, take out a loan or consolidate, pay off debt, or work in accounting or research. Taking charge of the areas of life where you feel uncomfortably dependent on others comes naturally at this time. It might involve getting rid of some debt or clutter, or it might go deeper than that--you might find or renew a passion. You're paying extra attention to emotional and psychological renewal.
July is robust for self-development, feeling more powerful and in charge, and making positive lifestyle changes. It seems in reach to achieve the right balance between introspection and external focus. You're more interested in developing skills than producing right now, although the desire for results is building. In fact, focusing on professional goals and responsibilities in the coming months towards the end of July and into August can be most rewarding.
Until the 21st, Venus moves in harmony with your sign, inspiring you to seek out new interests and experiences. You have a stronger attraction to cultural events at this time. Extracurricular activities can figure strongly now as you're ready and willing to step a little out of your comfort zone. If you're teaching, guiding, or otherwise influencing and inspiring others, your enthusiastic presentation invites people to follow your lead, making it a particularly excellent time for promotional or networking activities and otherwise spreading the word.
Responsibilities to your daily affairs, errands, and other duties and tasks can tie you down at times. Attention should be on fixing problems so that you can move on.
Still, you're in fine shape for competitions or challenging yourself to beat a personal best. As you share your enthusiasm with others, you strengthen your connections. Good energy is with you for leading, guiding, teaching, and sharing your expertise and knowledge. There can be new channels for self-expression opening to you, or you may be using the current channels available to you in more efficient and powerful ways. This is a time for reaching out beyond your usual bounds, and possibly meeting people who introduce you to new cultures and perspectives.
From the 15th, Chiron turns retrograde in your solar fifth house, and it's time to look within rather than to serve others blindly without attending to your own needs. There could be some slowdowns or reassessments in the areas of romance, creativity, or entertainment.
Venus heads to the top of your solar chart on the 21st, and Mars will follow suit on the 29th, putting you in a great position for work, career, goals, and reputation. Your professional and public appeal increase. You're bringing more creativity, energy, panache, and charisma to your job or public life. You have the chance to shine, and you may even meet someone special through your business dealings. There can be pleasant recognition or a boost of popularity.
On the other hand, the Sun and Mercury head into your spirit sector on the 22nd and 27th, respectively. These influences extend a theme of learning, sharing ideas, and reaching out beyond the usual routine. If a getaway, new course, promotional campaign, or publishing project are possible, these transits can push it forward. Excitement and motivation to soak in information and acquire new knowledge figure strongly. The mood is often light, sociable, energetic, and interactive.
The Full Moon on the 23rd can stir up a hectic period when you need to take care of essential errands or tie up loose ends, but also a highly enlightening time when it's easier to follow your heart.
You would be wise to watch for hasty statements and actions. Pushing your usual boundaries with learning and communications can be good for you, as long as it's not excessive. You have a strong desire to speak, know, and share your personal truths.
The last week of July is also suitable for grabbing the lead with confidence. You're likely to be ahead of the competition if you're even noticing them at all. You might turn a limiting situation that has weighed you down in the past into a powerful motivator for new goals and ambitions.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Capricorn:
Relationships, especially partnerships, can be in strong focus this month, dear Capricorn, and so can absorbing activities and passion projects. It's a powerful month for putting your life back into balance. Still, there can be some remarkable personal revelations this month.
The impulsive New Moon on the 9th can stimulate a sweeping decision in the days following, as the desire to start fresh is strong. The desire or need to cooperate and merge with others is compelling. Beginning anew in a relationship can involve taking on a new attitude or gathering the courage to make something happen.
You take more interest in cooperating and sharing common goals. As a result, it's an excellent time for shared activities, games, experiences, and ideas.
Venus and Mars spend much time in your intimacy sector in July, aligning there on the 13th. As a result, you can experience powerful emotions, attractions, and discoveries. There can be a sudden emergence of a buried desire to discover, manage, and direct. Relationships are in strong focus, but so is your relationship with yourself. You can direct more energy and love into your private life, an intimate relationship, research, or investigation. Private conversations, understanding, and connections can figure strongly.
You may be sharing an emotional burden with someone, and this can be a relief, or you may thoroughly enjoy delving into a personal project or interest on your own. Combining your resources or talents with someone can be beneficial for reaching a goal, and getting financial or moral support comes with less effort.
Financial constraints or disagreements might emerge, but keep in mind that the extra work you put into fixing mistakes can contribute to future success. Fears about money or security can be triggered, but facing a reality and adapting to it can improve your life. Don't let delays discourage you, as they often come at important times.
With Chiron's retrograde turn on the 15th, you're in a high position to examine and identify the roots of insecurities. Certain endeavors related to home and family life may slow down or encounter delays.
Venus and Mars move into your adventure sector on the 21st and 29th, respectively, harmonizing with your sign. These transits help you feel more confident and vital. Enthusiasm builds, your interest in the world outside of your routines expands, and your desire to learn about new things is intense. There can be romantic or creative connections with someone far away from you or someone unexpected. You might enjoy more spontaneity, adventure, or excitement in your love life. Or, a new topic of interest, line of study, person, or experience gives you a valuable new perspective and boost of inspiration.
However, while Venus and Mars are moving out of your intimacy sector, the Sun and Mercury move in on the 22nd and 27th. These transits push you to look within for answers and seek deeper involvement in a project, venture, or relationship. You're not interested in the fluff at the moment – it's "go hard or go home" time, and you may very well find that some endeavors go on a shelf as a result. You may be doing more troubleshooting than usual, and you're very successful at the task!
On the 23rd, the Full Moon occurs in your resources sector, and there can be revelations and unveilings centered around money, ownership, valuables, values, talents, sharing of responsibilities, and power dynamics. The more you feel in charge of your resources, the more confident you feel about the future.
The last week of the month is powerful for identifying your priorities and connecting to people and projects you love. Still, your sense of adventure persists. A sense of progress, improvement, or growth is a powerful motivator right now.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Aquarius:
July is notable for the potential of a balanced work-life focus, dear Aquarius. You continue to put a lot of thought and energy into dealing with your daily affairs, improving your work, and attending to your health and wellness this month. Even so, relationships are in high focus and stay very relevant throughout the month.
Improving your daily affairs is a priority in July. The New Moon on the 9th can get the ball rolling, as you'll feel anxious to start anew and take charge of your work, daily routines, self-care programs, and health. There can be a re-invigoration process in your everyday life, and it's about more faith and vision. Communicating positively and successfully with colleagues, health care workers, and associates can help boost health and work methods.
There is especially stimulating energy in close relationships with Venus and Mars traveling through your partnership sector until the 21st and 29th, respectively, and then your intimacy sector from those dates forward. These bodies join forces on the 13th. This can be a very passionate time when you discover new ways to express yourself, and your desire nature is more potent. Attractions can come full-on and feel insistent. If you're hungry for excitement in your relationships, this can be the time to find it, as there can be some drama and plot twists occurring in July, but there can also be some impulsiveness and friction.
Opportunities emerge to make creative and dynamic changes to your life through or about people. Strong feelings and emotions related to a partnership are likely, and you may be looking for others to fill your desires. Do watch for overidentifying, but enjoy this energy as you magnetize people to you.
At times, your stronger need for companionship or connection with others can clash with a tendency to go it alone or handle problem areas your own way. Someone may seem too carefree as you take on all the burdens and responsibilities. Honor your need to attend to your duties so that you can be more "present" in your relationships.
From the 21st, you're in particularly good shape with shared finances, loans, support, research, and intimate relationships. You might be able to get to the root of challenges in a close relationship related to sharing and power politics. Or, you can get to the heart of your desires.
Even though Venus and Mars leave your solar seventh house on the 21st and 29th, the accelerated, energized momentum of relationships or negotiations continues! The 22nd brings the Sun and the 27th brings Mercury into your partnership sector. As a result, there can be a lot of activity related to your social life or partnerships now. You see your life in new ways as others offer you their perspective. You learn about yourself through conversations and companionship.
With the Full Moon in Aquarius on the 23rd, epiphanies, personal triumphs, and incredible discoveries about your life plan, body, and attitude/outlook can happen. You can be embracing the joy of independence or improving a current relationship by increasing your self-reliance. This is a time for recognizing a need for positive change.
This Full Moon is your yearly emotional peak when you recognize your true feelings on a matter or reach an important realization. As well, on the 28th, Jupiter returns to your sign to finish up its transit. Lasting until December 28th, this transit helps you connect with your spirit and share it with others.
The last week of the month can pull up strong feelings. Even so, Mars heads into your solar eighth house on the 29th, and while desires run deep, you're more inclined to strategize your next move.
July 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Pisces:
Your drive is strong for getting your daily life, routines, and work in order this month, dear Pisces. There remains a big focus on recreation and your personal life in July, but the eagerness and enterprise to organize, sort out problems, get healthy, and get working are with you. Take advantage of opportunities to advance your health and work goals. As the month progresses, you'll get further support for these endeavors.
People gravitate to your warm and healing aura, and sharing ideas or creations is rewarding. Expressing yourself through creative mediums can be in the spotlight.
After the New Moon on the 9th, it's a time to start fresh, even if it means shaking things up and a bit of drama. Attractions and desires can come on suddenly and forcefully, and you won't accept anything less than sparkle in your associations. It can be challenging to think of much else.
It's a time for turning over a new leaf, and events occurring now can bring out your feelings, romantic inclinations, and creativity. You are more aware of your need to entertain, be entertained, celebrate, enjoy, and share yourself with others. Your personal magnetism receives a nice boost.
You're not accepting the same old, same old when it comes to daily life and work, and social or romantic opportunities through these things are likely to present themselves. Venus and Mars travel through your solar sixth house (until the 21st and 29th), and it feels great when you're on top of things, contributing, helping, and healing. It's a notably winning time for bringing new, more creative energy to your daily life or the work you do and the services you provide. As well, people can help you reach your goals.
You can be working especially hard for your money these days, but you're also finding ways to inject routine work or daily life with more excitement. Especially around the 12-13, it can be a perfect time to channel your passion into productive pursuits and move a work or health project forward. Perfectionism can be a driving force and powerful motivator, but avoid taking this to counterproductive lengths! You stand out for your services or the work you do. It may be a time of breakthrough diagnoses or remedies, an improved health program, or simply a particular enjoyment of building health.
Still, there can be reality checks. If your heart isn't in what you're doing, you can feel under the weather. Past mistakes or unfinished business can surface, and handling a duty may be necessary before moving on. Recognize the need to let something go or to make changes in existing projects if it helps you go forward lighter and happier.
With Chiron's retrograde in your resources sector from the 15th, you begin to gain a new perspective on your sense of self-worth and how this affects what you're attracting into your life, not only by way of income but also the emotional and spiritual benefits that you deserve.
While Venus and Mars move out of your work and health sector on the 21st and 29th, the Sun and Mercury move in on the 22nd and 27th. There can be a quickened pace to your routines and work--you want to make a real difference and sort out problem areas. The focus can be on clearing away clutter or otherwise cleaning up your life in little yet significant ways. Transits now encourage good (and smart) work habits as well as special attention to the small things that make your world go 'round! This can be a time to take care of minor problems and make sure your routines work for you, not against you.
The Full Moon on the 23rd occurs in your privacy sector, and there may be buried matter and secrets coming to light. You're receiving powerful messages from your hunches and intuition. Feelings about a past issue are now undeniable! This is a time for deciding to either embrace or let go of a situation or attitude. This lunation draws out your need to rest and go under the radar for a little while--you need to correct imbalances related to overwork.
In the last week of the month, there is a continued focus on work and health, but it's more about making things work and getting back on track than shaking things up. Jupiter indeed moves out of your sign and back into a hidden area of your chart, but it's temporary--Jupiter will return to Pisces on December 28th.
On the 21st and 29th, respectively, Venus and Mars move into your partnership sector, and close, one-on-one relationships are a hot topic. You're motivated to make changes, innovate, and get things going, and some of you may be in hot pursuit of exactly what you want in a relationship.
