Discover what awaits you this month in your free July Horoscope
Summer breezes might feel nice, but the winds of change are blowing thanks to it being eclipse season! First, however, there is an energy of play this July with Mars moving through fun and pleasurable Leo from July 1 - August 18. Interestingly enough, you might go back to people, places, and things in your past that brought a smile to your face once upon a time in an effort to bring back the enjoyment. From July 7-31, Mercury will be retrograde, stimulating this desire for all those happy throwback moments.
The eclipses, however, promise magnificent shifts in your home and family dynamic as well as in your professional world, so you can count on July being a month when all of your security buttons will be pushed. The Solar Eclipse on July 2 in Cancer will be at a supportive angle to Uranus, the planet of sudden happenings. This suggests that a surprise development or unconventional fresh start in your family life will bring you exactly what you need when you need it most.
A more sober Lunar Eclipse on July 16 lands in Capricorn and is sitting next to stern Saturn and transformative Pluto. Also opposite Venus at this time, this eclipse suggests a drastic need to cut the fat in your life -- even if it's something you love. Why? Because you know it's good for you.

A push to chase your career goals -- followed up by self-sabotaging thoughts of second-guessing yourself -- is possible this July. Mars moves to the top of your chart on the 1st, making it an opportune time to launch anything related to professional advancement. However, with Mercury turning retrograde in the same part of your chart on July 7, you might be rushing up the ladder of success so fast that you trip on a few steps.

Romance is a trip this month. Literally! You and your sweetheart might plan a journey that lifts both of you up spiritually or intellectually near July 18 when Venus is in perfect harmony to inspirational Neptune.

Pisces Monthly Horoscope
Feb. 19 - March 20
Summer fun and summer lovin' might be yours for the taking ... if you're single, that is. A Solar Eclipse in your romance sector on July 2 suggests a major opportunity for new love to come your way.
Now, if you are in a relationship already and things seem rocky, then miscommunication between you and your mate might begin to rule the roost starting on July 7 when Mercury goes retrograde. Because Mercury rules your partnership sector, these cycles tend to be tricky for you in terms of easy communication flow between you and your love. This time it might be arguments over silly matters such as who takes out the garbage and who picks up the dry cleaning. Still, it will be important to you to resolve.
After July 19 Mercury continues his retrograde but will move into your romance sector. An old flame might resurface. Is it too hot to handle?
In other news, with Mars in your work sector from July 1 - August 18, you'll complete your assignments with record speed. Just know that if you make careless errors along the way, Mercury Retrograde will force you to get it right.
