AQUARIUS

Big news for Aquarians who feel as though their love life needs a boost; you have the first of two New Moons in your Love Zone this month. Having two New Moons in a row in your Love Zone suggests that if you want to work on one important relationship, this is the time to do it. Relationship issues could come to the fore, but it’s all the better for you to work on them. Plus if you’re single and open to new love, it really could be coming your way – get out there and mingle, or go online and see who looks good!

BEFORE WE GO ANY FUTHER, SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

Taking a look at the heavens for the month of July, you may be relieved to hear there are no major events going on. In other words, we should be in for something resembling a not-too-arduous time.

However there are two things to note:

Firstly, the New Moon this month will take place in the sign of Leo. It will be the first of TWO New Moons in the sign of Leo. This is important to all the signs, not just Leos (though it’s arguably extra important to Leos and Aquarians or people with one of those two signs rising – if you don’t know your Rising Sign aka your Ascendant you can find out for free here – you will get more accurate readings if you read the info for that sign!) I will explain more about why this double Leo New Moon is important to everyone below. But for now, just bear it in mind!

Secondly, while July looks relatively cruisey and breeze-y for more most of the signs overall, we are in fact just one month away from the next eclipse season! That means that the energies are in fact hotting up on an as-yet-unseen level. Moreover it suggests that if you’re craving a peaceful and clam life, then you really need to relish any chances you get for that in July because August could be a tad more intense!

Here are the July Full Moon times around the world

Full Moon at 18 Capricorn
SYDNEY: July 9, 2.06pm
NEW YORK: July 9, 12.06am
LONDON: July 9, 5.06am

The Full Moon is the time when your emotions come up to the surface for you to deal with them. If you work with them, you can clear yourself out energetically. The easiest way to do this is to make peace with the past, once a month at least.

AND THEN WE GET THE FIRST OF THE LEO DOUBLE NEW MOONS

First of all – what’s bound to be an FAQ
Q: Will this double Leo New Moon a Blue Moon?
A: No. There are in fact various definitions of a Blue Moon but two consecutive New Moons in the same sign isn’t one of them.

Also note please that this double Leo New Moon doesn’t take place this month. We get the first of the two of them in July but have to wait until August for the second one.

First note the New Moon times for July:

New Moon at 1 Leo
SYDNEY: July 23, 7.45pm
NEW YORK: July 23, 5.45am
LONDON: July 23, 10.45am

SO WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Good question!
Note that every New Moon brings a restart of some kind in your life. So depending on your sign, this New Moon will bring a restart in one area of your life/horoscope or another.
Below is the info for YOU about where the New Moon in Leo will affect you this month – as you read it, bear in mind, this part of your life is a HOTSPOT since next month will bring a second New Moon in this exact same part of your life and moreover it will be an ECLIPSE!
In other words, the Universe is repeating itself. It’s sending you a very strong message about where in your life you need a do-over or a restart. So read about where the Leo New Moons are prodding you again (above) and think about that part of your life.

How’s your love life? There’s a New Moon in your Love Zone happening this month, which means you’re getting the chance to really reinvigorate your love life. If you’re single, this is the perfect time to draw a line under the past and to move on from your old loves, your old dreams and any old heart aches. If you’re attached, you probably already know about the importance of keeping your relationship fresh – and this New Moon brings in fresh energy, so have a think about some of the times you and your partner can do this month and over the coming month. Remember, some of the best things in life are free!

If you want to live consciously and make the most of this relatively rare double New Moon, take a moment now to make a list of 3 things you can do to start all over again in that part of your life mentioned above.

So that’s the lunar action of the month. You could argue it’s the most important thing happening this month, especially as the Leo New Moon in July is tied so tightly to the New Moon ECLIPSE next month – forewarned is forearmed!

WHAT ELSE IS NEWS THIS MONTH?

Firstly…

You could feel rather scattered this month as one change after another sweeps in and you’re expected to keep up with it all. You can. Amid all the mayhem and madness, you get your annual New Moon in your Love Zone. Make time for love and romance this month, no matter what else you’re dealing with. Top anti-stress tip: exercise!

YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

There is a powerful Mars/Pluto clash in the first week of July. This is a massive red flag to us all to breathe deep during the first week of the new month. Mars is angry and Pluto is furious, so when they clash like this (as they do only about once every two years) it can be incendiary.

But also note that this is only the case if you are having a tough time with someone or something. Actually it can also be a positive ‘clash’ if, for example, you’re working with your beloved to relight the fire in your relationship, for example.

Overall the Mars/Pluto clash will most strongly affect: Aries, Scorpios, Cancerians and Capricorns. If you’re one of those signs, do extra meditations on July 1 – 3. If you live or work with one of those signs, ditto!

AND THEN THERE IS LOVE…

The good news is that Venus, the planet of love and relating, is changing signs
Venus will move into the sign of Gemini on July 5.

This is:
• Good news for Geminis and Sagittarians because Venus will be in your sign and your Love Zone respectively (read on for more).
• Also good news for people with Gemini or Sadge Rising, for the same reason as mentioned above but you will feel it even more strongly – if you don’t know your Rising Sign aka your Ascendant you can find out for free here
• It’s actually also good news for everyone because Venus is the planet of relating and Gemini is the sign of CHAT and COMMUNICATION so when he have the planet of relating in the sign of communication, we all get better access to good communications, both personally and professionally. All relationships can go a little better under this cycle which last from July 5 through to next month

But of course Venus in Gemini means something slightly different to everyone – here is what Venus in Gemini means for YOUR sign…

Fun-loving Venus is currently moving through your fifth house of fun. And if you think that sounds like a good double whammy, you’re right. There nothing that the planet of pleasure, Venus, likes more than enjoying herself. And as she goes through your House Of Fun, having a good time is her Number 1 Mission. And it can be yours, too. Live a little, as they say! If you needed some kind of excuse to stop worrying and start indulging, you have it; Venus in this part of your chart means you are almost duty-bound to work less and to spoil and amuse yourself more.

This Venus cycle is also good news for singles looking to meet someone, because your fifth house rules romance – of the light-hearted variety. Certainly, if there were ever a time to get out there and shimmy your shui, this is that time. Couples don’t miss out, either. If you don’t find some of the old romance seeping back into your relationship over the next four weeks, it might be time to start talking to each other about your romantic expectations. Romance each other.

This transit is also excellent for anyone with issues connected to children (your own or someone else’s). Any child-related issues should be more easily negotiated and resolved. Good news really is possible. Ditto if you are working on an artistic or creative project. Your ability should be extra high – now all you need to do is discipline yourself to harness your extra creative ability!

And while we are at it, here are the Hot or Not So Hot Venus months for July
• July 4 – Hot
• July 5 – Hot
• July 17 – Not So Hot (potentially confusing)
• July 18 – Hot
• July 24 – Not So Hot (think; cold shower)
• July 30 – a bit of both – could be tricky but things get sorted out

Tip: if you’re in love, make a date on the night of the Hot Venus Nights and if you’re single, go out flirting. On the Not So Hot nights, if you find yourself at odds with someone you care about or having wrangles about cash, breathe and do your best to sort things out with LOVE (Venus is all about love).

AND YOUR FOCUS FOR MOST OF THE MONTH?

The Sun is the great ‘focuser’ of the zodiac so wherever it goes, your attention follows. This month, the Sun will be in Cancer for most of the month (hence why Cancerians are having their birthdays for the first 3 weeks of July).

This is what that means for you:

It’s all very well coasting along and hoping that life will fall into place, but as the Sun moves into your 6th house, it’s time to think about the structure of your days. What responsibilities do you have which you just can’t be lax about and is your life organised in such a way so that you can get all that you need to get done, done. Think about your routines – are they helping or hindering you. This is also the start of a four week period when you would do well to look at your health – not because you are going to get sick but because it’s the ideal moment to make sure you’re looking after yourself. Finally, it’s a month-long cycle where you need to think less about how to serve your own needs and more about how to help others.

And finally, take a moment to think about what you want to achieve in the second half of 2017, which is now upon us.

Saturn, the planet of lessons and harsh realities, will spend the second six months of 2017 wrapping up a stay in the sign of Sagittarius, which started back in 2014. Saturn is the great teacher of the zodiac; not always easy to like but always with a lot to teach us. By the way, it’s not just Sagittarians that are affected by Saturn at the moment, since we all have Sagittarius somewhere in our chart (that’s just how astrology works).

On the upside, we have the planet of plenty, aka lucky Jupiter, in the sign of Libra until October. For all of us, that’s good news because Jupiter brings a lightness of being and Libra is the sign of partnership. So hopefully all your relationships – personal and professional – are feeling a bit lighter right now. Again, though, it’s not just Librans who get the good Jupiter juju. Read on to find out if you’re one of the signs also being extra blessed by the planet of good news.

And here is what all that means for YOU!

Your sign is super-charged during the second half of 2017 as the eclipses take place in your sign and your Love Zone. Think of an eclipse as a portal that opens up to a new life – it’s up to you to jump through it. So what in your life now are you o-v-e-r? Where do you want change? And – very importantly – what do you know has run its course? Be really clear about what no longer serves you, whether it’s a relationship, a job, a home situation. If you cling on to the past out of fear, what happens at the time of an eclipse can be hard. However if you think of the second half of 2017 as a chance to declutter your life, literally and emotionally, you will be making the most of what is on offer to you. KonMari your house and your life! With the space cleared, if there is something you have always wanted to do with your life, then now is the time to try to make it happen.
Have a great month!
