(June 21 — July 22) 

In July, you’ll be tempted to find pleasure through impulsive and unnecessary purchases. But be prudent in all things financial; Venus in retrograde will remind you of the importance of a healthy balanced budget. Don’t forget: Your true self-worth is rooted in things far deeper than material-world acquisitions. So find ways to have fun in the moment that won’t challenge your long-term financial wellness.

(July 23 — August 22)

Between July 22 and September 3, you’ll become more aware of the fact that you’ve been putting your dreams and desires on the back burner. If you’re feeling out of touch with your true self, this will be the perfect time for you to refocus on your authenticity and regain internal alignment.

(August 23 — September 22) 

July is the time to take a bit of a step back and get some perspective on the parts of you that you’ve not been tending to lately. This season has an aura of irrationality—perhaps even mysticism—and it’s unveiling secrets and shining a spotlight on aspects of your personality that maybe you’ve forgotten exist. When you revisit these inner loose ends, you’ll find a direct connection to your intuition, which when plugged into will help you get a better handle on what you truly need and guide you toward the right choices.

(September 23 — October 22)

Come July, you’ll find out that all your work-related efforts may have had an effect or two on your friendships. Don’t neglect investing in the communities that acknowledge your generous spirit. Give yourself permission to reassess your relationships with groups that don’t leave you feeling full of trust and integrity.

(October 23 — November 21)

In July, you’ll want to take a good look at your career history. Between July 22 and September 3, you’ll be evaluating your relationships and connections and how they fit into your long-term goals. To ensure that you’re surrounded only by people who want nothing but the best for you, a little housekeeping will be in order!

(November 22 — December 21)

In July, Leo season brings with it a new perspective on recent challenges. That said, from July 22 to September 3, you might have the impression that your dreams are out of reach. If so, it will be important to think long and hard about how your state of mind has been holding you back. Don’t lose sight of the forest—where you get your greatest hit of energy. Honing your focus will help you overcome any obstacles and stay motivated.

(December 22 — January 19)

Come July, issues related to intimacy, sharing and taboos will be at the fore. Venus will be in retrograde from July 22 to September 3, inviting you to see exactly how your pride may be preventing other parts of your personality from shining— even the ones you don’t consider worthy of love. Make July the time to take the mask off and show the world who you really are.

(January 20 — February 18)

When July rolls around, you’ll be putting a magnifying glass to your relationships in love and work. Hold those horses, though—acting impulsively in this passing phase is not advisable. Between month’s end and the beginning of September, take a step back to put yourself in a better position to clarify your values around relationships; then communicate them to the right people. Putting in the groundwork during this time will pay off in the long term.

(February 19 — March 20)

In July, you’ll probably be asking yourself whether what you do at work really matters. Although efficacy is important, taking pride in a job well done is important too and you might also need a little self-delivered pat on the back. Don’t refrain from extending that praise to colleagues or asking them for feedback. Co-operation is queen in navigating this transit with bravado.

(March 21 — April 19)

Come July, jubilant energy will help bring you out of your shell and lead you toward all things that spark joy. This time in your life will be about saying yes to evenings out with friends and activities that allow you to express your creativity. A new person or situation will be the source of much excitement—and stress. Are you able to welcome all that zeal and still tend to your worries? Your ticket to the other side of this astrological transit is discernment—consciously choosing where to direct the energies that move you.

(April 20 — May 20)

In July, a new way to see home-life challenges will dawn on you. Between July 22 and September 3, you’ll gain clarity when it comes to what’s stoking the fires of imbalance in your family. Your leadership will result in better conflict management and therefore improved family dynamics.

(May 21 — June 20)

July’s the time to bring poise and reflection into all your communications. Do you often keep quiet or is it more that you have trouble expressing yourself? Are you afraid that your disagreement will be taken the wrong way? Or, on the other end of the spectrum, do you go from 0 to 100 and awkwardly ignore what others contribute? Look for balance and highlight your merits, and others will see you as you deserve to be seen. This is the moment for you to speak from a place of authenticity and confidence.
