July 2019 Horoscopes-
When looking at horoscopes in newspapers and magazines, people typically only look at their Sun sign. For those of us in the field of astrology, we know there is a lot more to each individual person than just that, we are all a combination of all twelve astrological signs that each manifest for the individual person in specific and very unique ways. I personally find that by looking at the horoscopes of my Moon (our emotional selves) and Rising (aka Ascendant, us at first glance through first impressions as well as physical appearance) signs, not just the Sun (our ego, who we are at the core); everything makes even more sense because we see how the puzzle pieces of who we are fit together. In terms of romance, even looking at your Venus (the planet of love and money) and Mars (our physical drives) signs makes a world of difference.

2019 is already half over, what the heck? How did that happen? It's been quite a year so far, and the astrology of this July doesn't disappoint in the busy department. Eclipse season is here again... and it's not messing around.
On July 2nd, we have a New Moon, Solar eclipse in 10 degrees Cancer (exact at 3:16PM EST). It won't be visible to us in North America, those in South America will get the best view. Despite that, the energy is still going to be intense no matter where you are, especially if you happen to have any planetary position 7-13 degrees of a Cardinal sign (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra). An easygoing sextile to Uranus in Taurus will help us throughout the emotional highs of this time when it comes to facing what is uncomfortable to us mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. In between this date, Mars (physical energy and assertion) enters fiery Leo on the 1st, and Venus (the planet of love) enters emotional and nurturing Cancer on July 3rd.
The notoriously annoying (and over-stigmatized) Mercury retrograde of the summer begins July 7th (7:14PM EST) in Leo, entering Cancer on July 19th, and ending July 31st (11:58PM EST) in Cancer. During these 3 weeks, we may find ourselves dealing with feeling insecurities and "not good enough". Comparing to other people can become second nature, especially when it comes to seeking validation outside of ourselves. This round of Mercury retrograde is about looking back to re-examine the connection between our mental/emotional health and sense of self esteem. Engaging in inner child healing work is highly beneficial right now, especially due to the signs Mercury is moving through: Leo (representing themes of childlike fun, creativity and even fertility) and Cancer (mothering, nurturing energy, emotional depth).
The second eclipse occurs on the day of the Full Moon in Capricorn July 16th, being a Lunar eclipse in 24 degrees of the sign (occurring at 5:38PM EST). Just like the Solar eclipse, any personal positions in a cardinal sign in 21-27 degrees can provide you with clues of the themes to work with. The Moon will conjunct Pluto and form a sextile to planet Neptune (in Pisces), which can indicate dealing with power struggles, emotional intensity, and the potential to become easily distracted from the bigger picture. Fighting the pull of the distractions are the key here, keeping grounded and reminding yourself that feelings aren't necessarily a reflection of facts will keep things at a relatively even keel during this heightened transformational period.
Lastly, we actually have a 2nd New Moon this month, the same day Mercury stations direct. The New Moon in 8 degrees Leo occurs on July 31st (11:11PM EST), and is in a square with Uranus, and trine Chiron the wounded healer (in Aries). Given the friction with Uranus, there may be some itchiness tempting us to rebel. This needs to be channeled wisely due to emotions naturally running high, feeling headstrong, and super passionate. Look before you leap.
Aries (March 20 – April 19): Aries, you could find yourself spending too much time with thoughts going through your head which are detrimental to your well-being. More specifically revolving around your home life and feeling as if you are inadequate in helping to provide the needs of those you love. To use this eclipse season to your advantage, pay close attention to your thought patterns and work actively to reframe them. Also take time to question the validity of the thoughts in your mind and remind yourself of what is factual.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Taurus, July is about keeping your family "in the loop". Mercury retrograde can add to miscommunication and a lack of understanding (even during the shadow period), however right now it is crucial to speak up. Passivity at the moment may seem like the best (and perhaps only) option, but remember at this time that things aren't always as they appear. Keep an open mind, and talk it out.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Gemini, worth (in all senses of the word) has been a hovering topic surrounding you, only getting stronger this month. Whether that's more specifically finances or how you value yourself, reassessment is on the to-do list for the next few weeks. Take a moment or two to quietly retreat inward (I know, it's hard!) and listen to your gut feelings- away from the chatter of your social circle to get an idea of where to begin in the self help department.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): An ending to a drawn out life chapter for you is coming to a bittersweet close this month, Cancer. While you are ready to embark on a new set of experiences, it is still okay to mourn the fact that the approaching change means leaving the past behind you. As time goes on, this process of letting go of "what was" will become easier, but for right now it's important to keep putting one foot in front of the other- even if it's baby steps.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Leo, because of increased activity lighting up the sector of your subconscious mind, you aren't giving yourself enough credit lately for the emotional progress in healing you've been achieving. It's hard to see growth in ourselves but others immediately notice what you aren't seeing lately. Stop berating yourself over insignificant and superficial "flaws", and see yourself through the eyes of the people who care most about you.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): It's an excellent time to do something spontaneous (yes Virgo, you read that right and your eyes aren't playing tricks on you), especially traveling. If Mercury retrograde and the surrounding stigma of it has you feeling overly cautious about a physical trip, improvise. My point is, unclench your fists. Relax your shoulders, breathe, and take a little risk. Is this a scary thing for you to consider? Good. Do it anyway and have faith in your own capabilities.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Libra, July may be a month where drama will seemingly gravitate towards you- or vice versa! Adding the eclipses of the month and Mercury retrograde beginning in the house of friendships and even rebellion, caution needs to be practiced. Is the tea worth spilling in the long run? Play the tape before acting foolishly... the potential repercussions need to be considered before burning bridges.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Scorpio, it's likely that you're in the midst of an existential crisis of sorts that's happening around these eclipses in July. It may literally feel like the sky is falling but there is a valid purpose for this. You're being guided to revamp and evaluate your philosophical beliefs and update them according to who you've become. Clearing the cobwebs, it's time to emerge with a fresher slate when the eclipse season dwindles down.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Sagittarius, this month could present a sort of "rude" awakening to your doorstep when it comes to your life/upbringing with immediate family. Neptune retrograde continues, moving through truths are shining through to expose where you need to hold yourself accountable. Set stubborn pride aside, and accept the valuable lesson you're being presented with.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Consider dropping what you're doing and truly paying attention to what is going to clear your mental and emotional blockages that are inadvertently disrupting your relationships. Ultimately it's your decision Capricorn, but this month's energy is handing you the opportunity to try a different path to breaking a disruptive behavioral cycle. A little more willingness to keep an open mind and room for flexibility can go a long way for you right now.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Them's fightin' words... uh oh, there may be some trouble in your social life this month Aquarius. Reactivity provoked from communication flubs can send egos into overdrive for both others around as well as yourself. Between Neptune and Mercury retrograde energies around, this could be mirroring bring brought to your attention. If you quiet your mind long enough, answers will come to you in which you may be able to improve on your day-to-day life for the long haul. But first, it'll be a month of sorting through the muck.
Pisces (February 19 – March 19): Pisces, July is the month for you to seriously shift your focus to your desires... more action, less talking. Toying with what you want to do with your life for a while now, stop procrastinating already. Especially before July 7th is ideally the best time to make the leap, so put in the necessary work and make this dream become a reality now- no more bulls*!tting yourself.
