Welcome to July!
Be sure to make a wish at around midday on July 4. Heck, make ten of them. This month brings your annual New Moon in your Wishing Zone – if you get really clear about what you want and express these desires to the Universe, you have a better than usual chance to make these dreams real (some effort will also be required…) The good news is that you’re a Virgo and you’re not scared to put in hard work. And the harder you work right now, the luckier you’ll get!
This month, the emphasis needs to be well and truly on communications. So no matter what you are doing, whether you’re busy with work or your personal life or both, how you speak your mind, what you say and who you say it to will be of paramount importance. This applies to all the signs
Because of the way the planets are right now, you could find that life is hammering home one theme again and again. Pay attention!
Here are the most important dates for July, for all the signs.
July 5 – connect with the heavens, your angels and the Divine through meditation.
July 7 – a potentially rather hot-tempered day for everyone, but especially for Geminis, Virgos, Cancerians, Capricorns and Scorpios!
July 8 – if things went haywire yesterday, they can improve today a Mercury connects to lucky Jupiter. Keep your sense of humour and all should be well or even better.
July 11 – another fraught day where it will be easy to say too much. Go carefully!
July 14 – Mercury into Leo – here’s what they means for all the signs
July 16 – extra romantic as Mercury meets loving Venus
July 19 – great day to make a deal
July 27 – excellent for getting someone to change their mind
July 30 – don’t lose your cool
July 31 – Mercury into Virgo
Note that from July 1 to July 12, Mercury will be in the sign of Cancer. Here’s what that means for your sign:
If you don’t have a dream, how you gonna make a dream come true? As they asked many moon ago, in that lovely old song. Your dreams and goals, what you wish for yourself and your goals – all of these are to be highlighted from today onwards for the next few weeks. Now is the time to think about your expectations. Are you hoping and wishing for something which is starting to seem like it’s really never going to happen? Is there anything you can do, a last ditch effort, to try to turn things around your way? And if not, is there any point clinging on to this dream or is there perhaps some other channel you can put your energies into? Or perhaps all is not lost and there is someone you know – socially, or through another network – who can help you? Think about it. This is most definitely the time to be considering the people around you that you’re somehow hooked up to. It’s also a good time to be assessing if your dreams and goals are your own or the result of peer pressure.
The Sun will spend most of this month in the sign of Cancer. The Sun is (not surprisingly) a bit like a spotlight that goes around your chart. This is what the Sun in Cancer means for everyone – in other words where the emphasis is… if you have an issue in the area mentioned below, ask yourself if you’re not being confident enough – or if you’re coming across as too confident and putting other people off!
Aries – your home life
Taurus – your communication skills
Gemini – on cash, property and possessions
Cancer – your whole life!
Leo – your spiritual life
Virgo – your friends
Libra – your professional life and/or ambitions
Scorpio – study and travel
Sagittarius – sex and money
Capricorn – your love life
Aquarius – your daily life/routines/health
Pisces – romance, creativity and kids (your own or someone else’s)
Venus, the planet of love, starts July in the sign of Cancer and quickly connects with passionate and powerful Pluto. In other words, the start of July has very high romance energies. However if you and your partner are more fighters than lovers at the moment, there could be a touch of antagonism in the air! The top three ways to deal with any love issues early on in July are:
By the middle of the month, Venus moves into the proud sign of Leo. Here is what that will mean for your sign.
Venus is now moving into your twelfth house of secrets and sleep, where she’ll stay for around four weeks. 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.
If you would like to work with Venus, the planet of love and abundance, you can use the Cosmic Extras – they are practises which help you to access the higher love behind the issues you’re facing. And if all that sounds a bit far out, it is! If you want to better your Venus experience, focus your attention on one of the items in the list below – they are specific to you and your sign based on the House that Venus is in for you as of July 12. For example, repeat the affirmation throughout the month, chant the chant or talk to the Archangel.
Essential Oil to use: Lavender
The mantra to use this month: Ah. Chant it out loud or silently
The chakra to work on this month: The Crown (aka Sahasrara)
The Archangel to connect with this month: Sandalphon, the intercessor
The Goddess to work with this month: Kuan Yin, Goddess of compassion
And then there is the New and Full Moon to think about. How are they affecting you this month? Read on!
Aries – if you want to move house or somehow change your domestic set up, this New Moon is the time for you to make plans.
Taurus – use July to think about how nice (or not!) you’re being. The New Moon can help you change the way you express yourself.
Gemini – the New and Full Moons are both straddling your Cash Zones so it’s time for you to turn the corner re your finances.
Cancer – the New Moon is in your sign and the Full Moon in your Love Zone. Time to decide what you want from your life in general and your love life specifically!
Leo – the July New and Full Moon are asking you to take more time out for yourself and to balance your need for inner peace with all your duties.
Virgo – this month’s New Moon is your lucky wishing New Moon of the year so be sure to write down 10 New Moon wishes!
Libra – the challenge for you with the Full Moon this month is to find something which resembles a proper work/life balance
Scorpio – dreaming of getting away from it all? Or of writing a book? Or studying? The July New Moon totally supports you in all of these…
Sagittarius – it’s all change for you when it comes to money this month. Talk to an expert if you’re not sure of the best way forwards.
Capricorn – the Full Moon in your sign means you need to turn the corner somehow and find a balance in your life re what you give and take.
Aquarius – you need to make some kind of emotional investment in your daily life – make it obvious to the people who ‘need to know’ that you do care!
Pisces – you could find yourself in a tug of war this month between what you need and what your friends need. Try to find a balance.

The New Moon is taking place this month in your 11th House which is the part of your chart which relates to your friends and the things you’re wishing for. In a nutshell, having the New Moon here is very auspicious for two reasons. For one, it means you’re in a cycle over the coming four weeks when you can meet new people and sometimes, that’s the exact tonic we need. Be open to having new friends in your life. For another, though, it’s a hugely important time for manifesting.

The Full Moon in your 5th house of fun suggests that there is likely to be some kind of tug of war going on in your heart – you have hopes and dreams that you know you have to work hard to make come true. But you also wish you could have more fun. And honestly, that is your challenge right now. You do need to work to make your dreams come true but you need to balance that out with having time out for good behaviour. For some, this month will be all about learning to be a great friend to other people while also allowing yourself the quality Me Time that we all need.
One of the great things about Virgos is that you’re slow to anger. You don’t tend to lose your cool. However that can work against you sometimes because you bottle up your feelings. If you don’t express negative thoughts, they can fester! This month you’ll find it easier to speak your mind in a nice Virgo way.
