Love blossoms when you honor yourself this month. The planet of romance and the one associated with your sign is Venus, which begins July in dramatic Leo and your 4th House of Roots. This is at the bottom of your chart where making your home, family, and yourself feel important come first. Being generous with those in your household is one way to ignite its romantic fire. Another is to make your environment more attractive as it is the foundation from which your own sense of self grows.
The Sun starts July in sensitive Cancer and your 3rd House of Communications where it can make conversations both more delicate and intimate. Verbal Mercury is also in Cancer, but running in reverse until July 20, which is more useful for cleaning up old personal business rather than pushing ahead too hard and too fast with new people.
In fact, reconnecting with someone from your past can be very helpful to relationships. You might spark an old flame but, at the least, be able to recognize habits and patterns that need to be changed. Either way, speaking with caution and tenderness reflects both what others need and what will most likely allow you to listen more attentively.
On July 22 Venus enters sister Earth sign Virgo and your 5th House of Romance. This garners attention and affection that doesn't require flashy behavior. In fact, being of service to others can go a long way to serving your own partnership desires. Just be discriminating in what you give and in choosing who the fortunate recipient of your kindness is.
