CANCER

This is a big month for you Cancerians. On the one hand you have the Full Moon in your opposite sign which will turn your attention to your love life (or lack thereof!) If you know one relationship in particular has hit the skids and is doing you no good, this could be the time to just let it go. On the other, for some, a relationship which has been troubled for some time could actually turn the corner now. But wait, there’s more. This month also brings the first of two New Moons in your Cash Zone. In other words, there are exciting developments afoot for you financially.

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.

Here are 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.

The good news for you is that this month, there’s a New Moon taking place in your 2nd House which is the part of your chart which is all about cash, property and possessions. If you want changes in any of these parts of your life, this New Moon is the ideal time to start to make the changes you want to. Remember that money is energy and it responds quite quickly to our thoughts of abundance or lack. If you know you’ve been thinking negatively about cash, use this New Moon as a marker and decide that henceforth you will turn your thoughts and expectations about cash around.

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…
It’s your birthday month and while the stars wish you all the best, they are also reminding you that one of your big life lessons right now is to be your usual patient and kind self, even when the world is annoying you to the point of cracking! Especially this month.

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 twelfth house of secrets and sleep. If you find yourself being required to make some sacrifices for someone you love at any point over the next few weeks, do it with pleasure, if you can. This Venus cycle is partly about putting someone else’s needs before your own.

You might not get instant thanks for what you do, but the good karma will eventually find its way back to you. On the other hand, be very careful to avoid bad karma now. Especially be careful if you’re thinking about getting involved with someone who is not really available to you. Quell any desires to get involved in any love triangles. Let me put it bluntly: take care before you either have an affair or seduce someone who’s attached elsewhere. You have been warned!

Similarly, be careful if you feel like you’re giving or getting mixed messages romantically now – sometimes during this cycle it’s impossible to be CLEAR. Confused by love? Far better to be patient. Being in this cycle means the next Venus cycle sees the love planet in your own sign. And if you think that sounds good, you’re right.

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:

The Sun moves back into your sign this week after an absence of 12 months. If you’ve been feeling like you’re coming to the end of your tether, you should start to feel like you’re regaining your grip. You can also expect to get a lot more attention than you’ve had in recent times. How you feel about taking centre stage for a while? People are going to be checking you out, so do all you can to shine! This is your recharge month. If you need to come across as confident, you have the skies totally on your side now, supporting you. Try not to be too self-centred – though it is tempting at this time of the year!

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!

There could be some massive changes for you on the money front in the last half of 2017. Don’t panic. The changes could be amazing and take you up to the next level of earning, if that’s something you would like to do. However this is a very good moment to remind you that money is just energy. So if you want money, know you deserve it, you’ve earned it, you think you’re worth it, then guess what? You will attract it. However if you think you’re not worth it or you think money is somehow bad, then it could be that the second half of 2017 backs up your beliefs. Remember, we attract what we think about most of the time, so think abundant thoughts and rate yourself highly! With Saturn trolling his way through your Daily Work Zone, you have a lot of work to do now anyway, most likely. Surely you agree that you deserve recompense for your efforts? Working hard should pay off for you now. Health-wise, regular exercise is the key.

Have a great month!
