JUMP TO YOUR SIGN:
Aries dates: March 21 - April 19
You might have been experiencing more tension than usual while trying to balance your home and career lives, Aries. In fact, you might be upset this month about needing some extra help around the house because you're trying to take care of yourself and maximize a career opportunity that emerges near the Lunar Eclipse on July 5. You don't like asking for help, and the fact that you've humbled yourself to enlist the aid of your relatives is a lot for you. So, when they are giving you excuses or frustrated opposition in return, it won't be easy to swallow. Fortunately, Mercury will turn direct in your home and family sector on July 12, and it looks like this will all sort itself out. A New Moon in the same part of your chart on July 20 will also help support new family beginnings.
As far as your love life goes, you have grown tired of never really knowing where you stand with someone. You may experience the final straw on July 27. Love needs to be expressed or else it will die. Someone is either not speaking up out of fear or just not feeling it. You're tired of being disappointed.
Key themes for Aries: family miscommunication, career milestone, promotion, honor, award, moving, real estate, romantic disenchantment
Taurus dates: April 20 - May 20
It looks like a publishing, advertising, or broadcasting endeavor will finally come to realization for you this month. A gorgeous Lunar Eclipse on July 5 is making a fabulous link to the Sun in Taurus, helping you achieve authority status in an area where you really know what you're talking about. This is "professor energy" and you might be touted as an absolute expert in your area of knowledge -- and rightly so!
Even so, you might feel slightly flustered in communications matters for most of the month when it comes to the mechanics of writing or speaking. There could be a private matter you need to take care of near July 8 and through July 27 that has you out of sorts with deadlines or other communications assignments. Don't be so hard on yourself. A New Moon in your message sector on July 20 will help you move forward.
Not feeling as if you're worth being loved is a self-worth dilemma that might need to be addressed near July 27. It doesn't matter what anyone else's opinion of you is. If you have felt rejected in love, just remember that it was divine protection from what isn't meant for you anyway.
Key themes for Taurus: learning, teaching, travel, writing, contracts, negotiation, romantic delusion, financial strain
Gemini dates: May 21 - June 20
A Lunar Eclipse on July 5 could bring an end to a source of debt you've been carrying for a while.

Mercury is retrograde in your earned income sector until July 12 and a New Moon happens in the same area of your chart on July 20.

If you've been drowning professionally, it really is time for a change.

Cancer dates: June 21 - July 22
There's a growing feeling of unrest and frustration for you this month as several areas of your life become untenable, leading to a major turning point in your relationship. If you are married, it's possible that an emotional power struggle between you and your mate will reach a peak near the Lunar Eclipse on July 5. You've had enough of feeling like you're always bending at the knee to make your relationship work or to make your partner happy. The main issue between you could also be about parenting. You are both on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to handling a situation with one of your children and something has to give.
our professional life is also making you quite angry near July 8 as well as July 27 when Mercury in your sign squares off to Mars at the top of your chart.

Leo dates: July 23 - August 22
A job might come to an end near the Lunar Eclipse on July 5. If this happens, it will make you realize that it's time to become serious about choosing work that is better suited to your overall goals.

Alternatively, if you are a business owner, you might face the difficult decision to fire an employee who isn't pulling their weight.
Your mind seems confused and frustrated about educational pursuits or whether or not you should go to school for a license or certification. You'll continue to work this out between July 8 and again on July 27 when Mercury squares Mars. Mercury will turn direct on July 12, and by the end of the month, you will be able to take decisive action.
Romance is tricky this month. You have been trying to push away intimacy because you may have struggled with feeling worthy of love.

Virgo dates: August 23 - September 22
This will be a defining month for you in matters of the heart. A Lunar Eclipse on July 5 lands in your true love sector. If you are dating someone, then you might realize how much you love this person and don't want to lose him or her. The attachment between you has grown considerably and you might want to deepen your commitment somehow. Go for it! If you're completely single, then you'll become extremely aware of the commitment you need to make to yourself to not compromise what you deserve in love just for the sake of a warm body next to you. It'll be a pivotal turning point that leads to a truly empowering romance once you know you're ready for it.
If there has been confusion between you and a friend, it might reach a crisis point early in the month but will finally start to be resolved after July 12 when Mercury turns direct in your friendship sector.

Key themes for Virgo: romantic fulfillment, stable love, romantic insecurities, romantic integrity, social misunderstanding, budding friendships
Libra dates: September 23 - October 22
This month could bring extraordinary domestic and professional changes. A Lunar Eclipse lands in your family sector on July 5. This is a significant event that might manifest as a relocation from one home to another. Wherever you move to now will be a place you intend on staying for a long time to come.
As July begins, you might still feel confused about your career direction. Mercury remains retrograde at the top of your chart until July 12 and after this you might start to have some realizations about your options. Interestingly enough, if you have admitted to yourself that you've stayed where you are only because of the security your position provided, you'll have an equally secure opportunity open up for you at the New Moon on July 20. Take it!
When it comes to your love life, it's possible that you and your partner will be arguing a lot more this month. July 8 and July 27 will see increased agitation as Mercury squares off to Mars. There's potential for your mate to say something he or she wishes they could take back. Handle with care.
Key themes for Libra: moving, family news, emotions, real estate, career decision, negotiation, partnership frustration
Scorpio dates: October 23 - November 21
All sorts of confusion regarding contracts and legal matters will be resolved this month, although it might not feel that any resolution is in sight at first. Mercury is still traveling retrograde until July 12, and it's not until after this point that you'll start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You could be signing a major contract near the Lunar Eclipse on July 5 in your message sector only to revise certain terms later in the month. A legal addendum is one possibility and if so, this would happen after the New Moon on July 20 in the area of your chart connected to legal matters.
When it comes to your love life, you may feel as if your partner's income is somehow slipping through your fingers. He or she might lose a source of income near July 27 and if this happens, you'll struggle to understand how it disappeared so fast. It's possible neither one of you saw this coming. Single? Stay away from any love interest asking you for money. It's bad news.
Key themes for Scorpio: contracts, negotiation, legal matters, court, documents, signing, discussions, financial stress, romantic delusion
Sagittarius dates: November 22 - December 21
Your financial world might feel upended, but you'll have a handle on where you're going and how to get there by month's end. It all starts with a Lunar Eclipse in your earned income sector on July 5. A source of income might end, and it could be one that you relied on for many years. Although you may feel insecure about it, recognize that it actually opens up doors of opportunity you otherwise would have conveniently ignored. Those doors have to do with making money through passive income streams, commissions, or royalties. In fact, you are likely to implement a new revenue stream near the New Moon on July 20.
In terms of love, you are coming to a major emotional realization about someone who is in your heart. Venus, now in your partnership sector, will square Neptune, the planet of illusion, on July 27. You've been seeing things the way you wish them to be and not how they truly are, and it's time to take the rose-colored glasses off for good. This doesn't have to be negative. In fact, it could be how genuine love transpires.
Key themes for Sagittarius: financial loss, financial change, investment decisions, new investment, residual income, blind love, unconditional love
Capricorn dates: December 22 - January 19
This will be an emotionally charged month for you and there is no getting around it. A potent Lunar Eclipse in your sign on July 5 marks a significant turning point in your life. This can have everything to do with a personal transition that is connected to your identity and goals, but it may also involve a close relationship, either in business or your personal world. Endings are possible, and if anything in your life does come to a close, remember that it is happening because you have either outlived its purpose or needed it to end so you can attain your next level of soul growth.
When it comes to relationships, this is a month of confusion leading to new beginnings. Mercury has been retrograde in your partnership sector since June 18. Mercury will turn direct on July 12, and also you'll have a New Moon in the same area of your chart on July 20, making it certain that you're ready to go in a new direction when it comes to your connection with someone important. You're ready to claim a new level of emotional security with this person.
Key themes for Capricorn: metamorphosis, transformation, transition, endings, culmination, loss, awakening, emotional, commitment
Aquarius dates: January 20 - February 18
You might be tired of the miscommunication between you and colleagues or the feeling that your job isn't right for you. If you've done everything you possibly can to make it work and it's still not a positive (or at least bearable) experience, then it might be time to accept that this position simply isn't a good fit. Options will start to open up in your mind after July 12 when Mercury turns direct in the area of your chart that rules work. You'll be able to update your resume and send out applications. Expect interviews and a new job offer to come faster than you imagined thanks to the New Moon on July 20. Sometimes change is good.
When it comes to your love life, a nebulous square between Venus and Neptune on July 27 might leave you feeling that you've met someone who is too good to be true or just too good for you. If it's the first option, then you're probably right because no one is perfect. If it's the second option, then you're probably wrong. The right person will love you just the way you are.
Key themes for Aquarius: job loss, new job, work frustration, office mishaps, office miscommunication, unrequited love, self-love
Pisces dates: February 19 - March 20
You might hear emotional news from a friend near the Lunar Eclipse on July 5. This pal might be going through an extremely difficult time where he or she is experiencing the structures of their life crumble. If you see this is happening, you'll want to do what you can to lend support. Of course you will, because you are pure compassion at your highest vibration!
Your love life might feel like nothing but confusion up until July 12 -- that's when Mercury finally turns direct in your romance sector. If you've had an ex come back into your life for any reason, it most likely stirred up some old feelings, thoughts, or patterns for you to work through once more. Hopefully you did so you'll finally be ready to free yourself from any unhealthy emotional attachments and move on. The New Moon in your true love sector on July 20 will help you achieve this.
Key themes for Pisces: troubled friend, social problem, friendship breakup, dating dilemma, ex-lover, old flame, reconciliation, new love
