LEO & LEO RISING
The first part of July is quiet, dear lion. Developments in your otherworldly Cancer Twelfth House emanate in whispers, so re-center and seek clarity through reflection. The Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd, occurs in your Sixth House of work, duty and wellness. This is a time to seek closure or finalize a serious EMOTIONAL commitment in regard to your wellbeing or workplace. For example, taking on a once-in-a-lifetime Endurance challenge or even ending a relationship with a longtime coach. In the days immediately following the Full Moon, you may find yourself mired in questions of purpose and potential, take a step back and seek solace in introspection.

VIRGO & VIRGO RISING
The month begins with a PHYSICALLY strenuous team effort. The Capricorn Full Moon in your Fifth House of creative artistry, pleasure and sport, indicates a serious “work hard, play harder,” outlook. Compete with the best of them but allow yourself plenty of hedonic joy like hot springs, swimming holes and smoothies afterward. The happiness you squeeze out of this tough Full Moon could be deeply appreciated the next day, as transformative news arises regarding your cherished teams or communities.

SAGITTARIUS & SAGITTARIUS RISING
The first few days of July feature what on the surface appears pragmatic, though underneath is profoundly impactful. July 1st-3rd are great days for domestic reorganization or therapy, acts that reveal the forgotten or hidden aspects of daily experience. The implications of these routine practices are EMOTIONALLY rewarding thanks to a positive Sun–Jupiter contact in your psychological Cancer Eighth House and dutiful Taurus Sixth House. On July 3rd, the Capricorn Full Moon occurs in your Second House of earned income and possessions, representing a culmination or conclusion with personal finances.

CAPRICORN & CAPRICORN RISING
You, majestic sea-goat, are definitely more comfortable in tough times and with the harder edges of life than most signs of the zodiac. Thus, as your sober and serious ruler, Saturn, embarks on its annual retrograde, this time in Pisces, you may see that your PHYSICAL energy levels are impacted. Fatigue could be a background issue through November 4th, so be easy on yourself. With all of this in mind, July 3rd’s Full Moon in your sign presents a unique benchmark for your self-development journey through the course of the retrograde. Catalytic Pluto’s co-presence with this Full Moon, points to a transformational moment of EMOTIONAL catharsis. Feelings may be raw, as Capricornians have been through the gauntlet, especially these past three years, yet this month presents opportunities for personal healing and interpersonal reconciliation that may have felt out of reach for quite some time. July 10th’s dramatic opposition between Pluto in your sign and Mercury in Cancer, calls forth revelations in your intimate relationships, dredging up that which has gone sour into the cleansing light of perceptibility.

This may sound unusual for the most career concerned Caps reading this, though embrace this change knowing that the South Node in your Tenth House of public life and vocation, liberates you to rest, recharge and ultimately, explore horizons unknown!
AQUARIUS & AQUARIUS RISING
Like your fellow Saturn ruled sibling – Capricorn, the retrograde of your joint ruler has a less than stellar impact on PHYSICAL wellbeing. Saturn retrograde could correlate with lethargy or stiffness. Until the retrograde ends on November 4th, incorporating low intensity, low impact activities such as Moss Napping and Rambling into your endurance training could be a game changer that has positive long term benefits. Saturn rules our connective tissue such as ligaments and tendons, so no skiing bumps or topo-parkour. Alternative approaches to wellness provide striking clarity this month, thanks to a contact between the vital Sun in Cancer and holistic Chiron in Aries. On July 2nd, relational Venus forms a tense aspect to maverick Uranus. This square between Venus in your Leo Seventh House and Uranus in your Taurus Fourth House, could usher in unexpected, EMOTIONALLY intense moments at home. These matters are private by nature though quite transformative in the big picture. The next day’s Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd, offers you deep peace if you’re willing to take time out for yourself to reflect. Although, be aware that you may revisit and reevaluate this issue after July 22nd when Venus retrogrades in your Leo Seventh House of partnership, contracts and agreements. Some soul searching may come in handy! In other major news, the unorthodox and crafty North Node enters your Aries Third House of daily MENTAL processes, communication patterns, kinship and locality on July 18th. For the next 18 months, attention will be on daily minutiae of thought, innovating your media presence and improving communication, all with that singular Arian focus. On the flip side, the discrete and impassive South Node enters your Libra Ninth House of philosophy and metaphysics, decreasing your investment in organized SPIRITUALITY and liberating you from dissonant worldviews. Aquarians are in the antithesis of an “eat, pray, love” era, so at times you may feel like a cosmic drifter. Embrace the journey! Eventually you’ll phone home only to realize you’ve been there all along.
PISCES & PISCES RISING
July is full of brilliantly creative and high spirited vibes!

A transit active throughout this month and through November, is Saturn’s Retrograde in your sign. Now is the time to reconfigure your PHYSICAL training plan.

Experiment, allowing more room for trial and error. On July 10th, warrior Mars enters your interpersonal Virgo Seventh House. Mars in Virgo is tricky, in that it usually brings MENTAL distress or disagreement in partnerships. Sit down with your allies and work through your action plans together.
