It's your birthday month, Cancer -- but that's not all. This July you're the proud owner of a Solar Eclipse in your sign, one that won't exactly go gently into the night.
This eclipse occurs on July 12 and is sharply opposite Pluto, the planet of power and control, which is now in your relationship sector. Partnership dynamics are sure to be a dominating theme for you this month and you're likely to feel the tug of war between you and someone close to you in the most palpable way. Yes, there is a new start for you and your mate, but you must fir navigate some dark terrain together. One -- or both -- of you seems to want to be in the driver's seat when it comes to directing the future of your relationship. The problem with this approach is that you're both more focused on what is in it for you as individuals rather than what's in it for you as a couple. What if you chose to be co-pilots instead? Imagine how much farther that would go towards creating a more solid and secure love connection.
You might have a real breakthrough in your marriage or relationship this month, especially if your connection has been on the rocks lately. If you're in couple's counseling, expect an awakening and a major turning point thanks to this eclipse energy.
Your sex life will also enjoy a welcome boost. Jupiter turns direct in your 5th House of Romance on July 10, which will intensify and expand the physical enjoyment you gain through intimate connections. If you're single, this might be a month where you hook up with someone who literally makes you weak in the knees. Losing control has never felt this good!
Mercury will turn direct on July 26 and you might need to take a more careful look at your finances until August 19. Revising your budget and cutting back on excessive entertainment expenses will be a good idea during this time.
You might hear frustrating news about taxes or another type of debt that you owe at the Lunar Eclipse on July 27. You may not feel as if you have any recourse. If so, you'll have to bite the bullet and pay up. The good news? Once it's over, it's over.
