TAURUS

If you’re one of the Taureans looking to buy, sell or renovate your house or even to change city or country, you have amazing stars now as the first of two New Moons fires up your Zone of All Things Domestic. Whether you live alone or with someone, change is afoot and the skies aren’t going to let you get away with maintaining the status quo! If you have had an upset with family, this is the month when to start to healing. Make the first move, since you have celestial support! This is also a potentially lucky month for you as well.

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. For help doing that, click here for my 100% free Full Moon Forgiveness Kit.

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.

FIRSTLY…
Your home life, your personal life, your domestic life, your past, your family, the people who feel like family and your actual home – all these parts of your life are up for renewal now as the New Moon this month focuses its energy on to you 4th House. If you haven’t been getting on well at home or with your family, this is the ideal time to sort things out. Allow them the chance to have evolved! Allow them to do things differently. At home, if you want to move, sell, buy or just change housemates, it’s all extra possible. For some, there’s a revelation connected to your past.

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?

Think about the way you’re expressing yourself. About once every two years, you get to weigh up the power of speaking gently but firmly, versus what happens when you release your inner raging Taurus Bull at someone. You may ‘win’ arguments by shouting but it’s usually a hollow victory. Cheeriness is in fact your best weapon in daily life right now.

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 second house of cash, property and possessions. On the one hand, you do need to watch yourself, if you know you have a tendency to spend more than you should. You could find yourself feeling very flush now – but be sure you can cover your basic expenses before you go lashing out cash on something which has taken your fancy but which you maybe should be hesitating over.

Your tastes might be more expensive than usual but before you give into your desires, double check with your accountant or whoever else is likely to go “Tsk tsk” if and when you spend up big on things you don’t really need!

The up side of this Venus cycle is that you can expect more financial opportunities to come your way. Keep your eyes peeled and you could find the period lucrative.

Also use this four-week period as a chance to work on your self-esteem. Don’t just think about that – do it. Start by making a list of what you know is Uniquely Wonderful about you. Seriously. Then ask your best friend what he/she thinks is Uniquely Wonderful about you. Try it.

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:

Expect to be extra busy over the next four weeks as the Sun goes through your solar 3rd house. It’s a time when you can expect to be making lots of little quick trips, hither and thither. You can also expect the phone to be ringing off the hook and for your email inbox to be calling for your attention – how well you communicate is going to be an issue now. Do you need to brush up your skills? If there is someone who hasn’t been getting your message, this is the time to re-explain yourself. If you’re going on holidays over the next month, be very mindful about not taking your work with you.

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!

Watch out that you don’t work too hard in the coming six months as the eclipses light up your 4th and 10th Houses, which are your Home and Work Zones respectively. There is a good chance that you’re quite obsessed with your career at the moment and that might seem like a good thing. After all, ambition is admirable, isn’t it? Yes but make sure you’re not missing out on precious moments in your private life which would leave you feeling far more fulfilled, if only you allowed time for them. Most would agree that real success is about having a personal and a professional life ticking over nicely. So make that your aim between now and the end of the year. Carve out time off. And if you’re working too hard because you need the cash, ask yourself if you need to work on your relationship with cash. Being scared of scarcity makes you more likely to feel skint. And if you feel something, you’re more likely to be something. It’s the law of attraction.
Have a great month!
