Happy summer, everyone! And happy birthday to all of the Cancers out there. This month, we find ourselves with the sun in Cancer and moon in Libra on the first of the month. Cancer is all about nesting, chilling out, and self-nurturance. Cancer is also a boss babe, so she asks us to tap into our internal reserve of getting stuff done (perhaps mainly around the homestead or if you work at home). With the month beginning with the moon in Libra, emotional balance can be a major keystone for July. We may be challenged this month to keep our center even as things feel really busy and intense.
Read on to see what the cosmos has to say for your unique sign and have a beautiful month.
Aries, for the month of July your focus is on your finances. To spend or to save? That is the question for you. Do you have a habit of spending too much? (You may, as an Aries.) Or do you work to budget and balance your finances? As I’ve recommended before, check out the MyDomaine article on 50/30/20 budgeting for some insight this month.
Taurus, this is going to be a very busy time of the year for you. Movement around town, socializing with good friends, and all around lighthearted energy are all up for you. Romance is highlighted for all of the Taureans this month, and you never know who you can meet through good friends.
Gemini, after your birthday period, it’s time for a little chill. Trips to the spa, extra sleep, and spending a bit more time at home will be extremely beneficial for you. Getting some rest this month could also do wonders if you’ve been having some relationship stress recently.
Happy birthday, Cancer. You have a ton of really powerful and beautiful energy in your sign this month, just in time to celebrate your birthday. Creativity, romance, and all-around good vibes are highlighted. What can you do this month for you, Cancer? Call together a celebration, and tap into what you’d like to do best—your birthday is for you (not everyone else)!
Leo, balance is key for you as we move into the height of the summer months. If you’ve been feeling burned-out or run-down, take space this month to really focus on your health. Balancing out your work schedule or the time you take to do things for others needs to be reprioritized: Think healthy eating, hiking, Pilates, meditation—whatever. You get the gist.
Relationships are the focus for you this month, Virgo. Whether business-focused or romantic, the way you come off to others, or the way you relate to them, is of importance to you right now. Have you been seeking to go into a business partnership or a new relationship? Check in, and make sure the parameters feel fair and healthy before making any decisions. Already together? Make sure your partner is carrying their share of the weight.
Okay, Libra, July is summertime, but I want you to do a bit of resting this month. You are moving through a transit that asks you to balance out, take some time for the deeper parts of yourself, and slow down as much possible. If meditation or yoga has ever called to you, I definitely recommend it for you this month.
Get learning or traveling this month, Scorpio. What is something new you’ve been wanting to study? I know life gets busy, but expanding the mind is important. Since traveling is also highlighted for you this month, buy that plane ticket or go on that road trip. Rejuvenation is just ahead.
Career and hustle are up for you this month, Sagittarius. What are your goals when it comes to your work? A promotion or a raise could also be in the picture. If you feel like you’ve been putting your best foot forward, good results are on the way. If not, remember, make yourself irreplaceable.
Capricorn, it’s time for good friends and for you this month. If it sounds strange to you, it shouldn’t. Think of it this way: The people around you either encourage you to be a boss or bring you down. Your dreams, goals, and aspirations deserve your own encouragement, as well as encouragement from the people around you. Bottom line: Only people who believe in your dreams are allowed in, moving forward.
Aquarius, the beginning of a beautiful summer begins with a little R&R. Extra sleep, meditation, and self-exploration are all up for you this month. Where you can you take a step back from the hustle and settle into your own being? Google “dream journaling” and get to know what your subconscious is saying to you this month.
Pisces, this month is all about new beginnings for you. Where can you start afresh and reinvent yourself? I always like to suggest a closet overhaul with a transit like this, or even completely reinventing the space around you.
