ARIES

Is it time that you had some more fun, ARIES? You know, that thing where you get to down tools and forget about your responsibilities to other people and just enjoy yourself? That. July sees the first of two New Moons in your Fun Zone which means the Universe really does have a super strong message to you about living life to the fullest. Bring some romance back into your life if you can too. You’re literally never too old to feel all those lovely feelings. And if you’re the creative type, use some of your downtime to create, whatever that means to you!

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.)
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!

LET’S START WITH THE FULL MOON AS IT TAKES PLACE FIRST

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.
Welcome to the House of Fun! Have you been having a bit of that lately? If not, then the skies are strongly suggesting to you that it’s time to get out and do a little bit of what you fancy! There’s a new start possible for you now re romance, creativity and kids, as the New Moon takes place this month. Could you use a restart re re romance, creativity and kids? Identify which one(s) you want to work on and draw up an action plan. What could you do to inch closer to what you want? Remember, the law of attraction means we can’t get what we want until we know what we want.
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…
As your ruling planet Mars clashes with paranoid Pluto then unpredictable Uranus, you need to be doing deep breathing, exercise and/or a lot of meditating. What’s happening now really could lead to an amazing breakthrough on the home and/or work front, however it might not be the easiest of processes. Employ whatever healthy anti-anxiety techniques work for you (wine doesn’t count!)

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…

Venus is currently moving through your third house of communications, thoughts and Your Every Day life. This is a wonderful transit if life has been a little tough over the past few days or even weeks.

For one thing, if you’ve been working too hard and/or worrying too much to enjoy yourself, that phase is about to end. In fact, you can expect to start feeling quite sociable now.

If you’re single and looking for love, you’d do well to accept any and all invitations coming your way now. People are going to be extra drawn to you as Venus gives you the gift of the Charming Gab – your words are going to be more seductive to Someone Else’s ears than ever.

For that reason, if you want to tell someone how much you care for them, the coming four weeks are the ideal time. Whatever else happens, you can expect to have Love On The Brain.

Also this month, pay attention to those around you – you may not have realised how much love there is in your life, especially in your immediate environment. Take no one’s love for granted!

This Venus cycle is also good news if you either wish you could spend more time with your siblings (the chance should arise) or if you’ve had a falling out with a brother or sister and want to make up. Extend the olive branch.

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:
Your personal life is now in the spotlight, so expect the spend the next four weeks doing some deep thinking about your past and how it got you to where you are now. Family issues – your parents, in particular, but all family – are now likely to take centre stage. If you need to reconnect with them, this is the time to do it, even if it means only getting on the phone and/or hooking up the web cam. Your actual home is also in focus now – look at how happy you are with where you live, how you life and who you live with. If there is something or someone from your past that still troubles you, now is the time to go and investigate it to see if you can release it and move on.

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!

As we move into the second half of 2017, you are in one of the best cycles you will have for a while when it comes to love. How this cycle will play out will differ from one Aries to another. If you’re single and open to a new relationship, it’s a great time to go online or find another way to ‘widen your love options’. (because Jupiter in your House of Love means you should have more choices when it comes to love – so keep looking!) If you’re attached but not happy, this transit could see you deciding to make a bid for freedom in your search for romantic joy. And if you’re attached and happy, that makes between now and October a superb time to travel with your beloved. The other point to really get about the last 6 months of this year is this; as much you might feel trapped and crave freedom, actually what’s going to bring you fulfilment now is letting people get close enough to see the real you.

Have a great month!
