July asks you to take the good with the bad and embrace the mixed bag of celestial energies that will take you on a rollercoaster throughout the month.
The month of July brings life-changing energies that will ask you to dance with them. Jupiter finally goes direct on the 10th of July, which means any treasure you have been mining for can be brought to the surface.
Hold onto this treasure, as it will see you through great impulses for change. The new moon on the 13th is a partial solar eclipse that is opposite the planet of power and control, Pluto.
At the end of the month, on the 26th, we will experience a total lunar eclipse conjunct a retrograde Mars. Universal instincts will be strong throughout July, and egos will be stripped, like in the story of the Emperor’s new clothes.
Finally, Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Leo on the 26th. Until early September, it is important to remember to listen and not assume anything.
But how will these energies personally impel you? This reading is for Pisces sun sign, ascendant sign, or moon sign:
Written all over your face
Your newly expanded consciousness appears to be shining on your face, which could put you in the spotlight for some romantic interactions. These interactions could lead to a potential committed relationship if you take the opportunity at the end of the month.
However, just be careful not to let your head drift too far off into the clouds, as you will be mentally required to deal with practical and health matters.
When Jupiter turns direct
After much investment into serious soul-searching and consciousness expansion, you begin to see tangible and positive changes in your life. Also, you may decide to take a trip overseas in order to immerse yourself into a deeper understanding of a new culture.
Power packed lunar action
New Moon on the 13th: Your fears confront your intuition to move forward with expressing yourself creatively, or to make a romantic move. However, doing so will cause you to sense an external power struggle between friends, or within your community.
Full moon on the 27th: Intuitively you seek to move forward when dealing with a new diet or improved work practices in your day job. However, subconscious instincts alert you to obstacles and blind-spots that may be preventing you from reaching your goals.
Nevertheless, there is an energy that you sense that is holding you back, that you can utilize to your advantage if you try to quieten your ego. Spending time alone retracing your steps may help you to uncover many areas where you have misspent energy that has prevented your progress.
Mercury begins the second of its three annual retrogrades, on the 26th of July, and will last a few weeks. Potential miscommunications are possible up till the beginning of September in matters to do with your health and other practical obligations. Additionally, it is not a time to start a new diet and make sure you check the small print on any new medication.
If you can possibly stick to what you have done in the past to improve your health, this will be most beneficial. Restarting a diet that you dropped previously could actually prove successful during this time.
