Magnificent opportunities for growth and overall progress in your career are possible this month, despite a few nasty retrograde planets in the sky. As long as you keep calm and carry on, you've got this!
It all begins on July 9 when Venus moves to the top of your chart, remaining here until August 6. You'll notice that your boss or another VIP is more impressed than ever with your skill set and work ethic. There is likely to be at least one major offer you'll receive to help propel your career to the next level. Don't waste this incredible time! What makes this even more interesting is the potential for financial reward. A Solar Eclipse on July 12 falls in your 8th House of Big Money. This isn't the cash that comes your way through your direct paycheck. Rather, it's the type that's funneled to you in any other way you can imagine. As a result, there's a strong possibility that this career opportunity will come with the potential for you to generate passive income, royalties, a hefty bonus or commission, or even a lump sum payout that is separate from your weekly paycheck. You might also receive more attractive benefits or a retirement package that makes you smile.
While this career goodness is happening, there will be two monkey wrenches in the sky to navigate. Mars will be retrograde in your communication sector all this month and the next, making it difficult for you to speak up for yourself in the assertive way you're used to. However, this mellower version of your voice might turn into an asset if you use this opportunity to improve your listening skills instead of trying to speak above anyone else in a futile effort to be heard.
Mercury will turn retrograde on July 26 in your 9th House of Higher Mind. This might lead to some delays or frustration if you're involved in a publishing, advertising, or broadcasting endeavor. You can, however, revise a current project successfully. You might also decide that it's time to go back to school. Sagittarius, you're always hungry for knowledge, so this might be the best decision you make all month. The quiet pursuit of wisdom will make you stronger than ever before.
