House, Flat, Family, Hometown, Household, Homeland
The agreement, negotiations, paperwork or ‘firm’ news regarding where you live, or the family circle - perhaps your household - is actually wobbly in July. This goes back to June, and the wheels will turn backwards and forwards until August. Do not make an important move without getting it in writing, and even then, check the fine print for the outcome in case of delays or changes. Mercury Retrograde rules and from shadow to shadow, it always starts earlier and ends later than Google astrology tells you. Take care.
We have a huge number of factors in your home and family zone in July. Along with Mercury Retrograde we also have eclipses (blind spots, cover-ups or blacked-out information) in this same area of your chart, on 2nd and 16th July. Allow a day either side. You are being kept in the dark on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 15th, 16th, 17th July. An eclipse is exactly what you might expect. A total lack of vision and poor visibility about what is actually going on.
You are being taken back to the years 2000 and 1981 in July, in terms of karma with a family member, or ‘soul’ debts and credits regarding a particular house, apartment, town - or even your sense of belonging to your country. The karma goes back all the way to the 1960’s and 1940’s actually and stretches into past lives.
Venus, Panacea, Bacchus and Diana are in Cancer all month, the sign which we associate with the crab who carries her home on her back. There are tremendous questions in July about where you come from, where you belong, and who you are - in relation to your city, your region and your country.
Give yourself a ton of time and space, Aries. You face an obstacle course similar to the famous stretch of hurdles in Chariots of Fire. You will not get through without knocking over the occasional glass of champagne, but remember Nigel Havers, one of the film’s stars, is a trooper and a stayer. You also need to be a trooper and stayer, because you have karma to complete!
You owe or are owed. You need closure. Now, Aries, that is going to take time. It will take you until 2020, actually, to really take back what is rightfully yours, spiritually, but also to settle up, if there is anything that is unresolved. This is particularly true of life as it was for you 19 years ago. Yet, I am not discounting the fact that you have a past life with a family member, flatmate/roommate, tenant, landlord/landlady, council member, politician and so on - which profoundly affects you now.
Work through this. But please be aware of Mercury Retrograde. Property price fluctuation, the unseen fine print on a lease or mortgage, false starts with a holiday home and so on, are all classic outcomes of this cycle. Residency, passports and visas might also be areas where you could hit complication or delay so be aware. As always with this cycle have Plan B and C up your sleeve.
A family reunion or a new flatmate - all are prone to issues with computers, trains, traffic, airlines, telephones - at this time. If you are curious please look up Mercury Retrograde on Search. Over the years, hundreds of my readers have left real-life, real-time comments. It’s an education about what to expect!
Career, Social Position, Success, Ambition and Mission
Congratulations on making it over the halfway mark of the toughest cycle in 29 years. Well done on making it well over the halfway mark of the most intense cycle in 240+ years. And a round of applause for staying the course, with karma. Why karma? Because the South Node is in the serious, steady, ambitious sign of Capricorn and will not leave for some time. It remains there because you are now required to take what you are owed, but also repay what you owe, spiritually. This goes back to the years 2000, 1981 or even further back, into past lives.
When you add in Saturn’s tests and trials, the waiting games, and Pluto’s emphasis on people politics, power and control - you really do have a lot on your plate. In fact, this has been the case in 2018 as well, so you will need time out in July. A genuine break or respite from the intensity, the hard work and the ‘stickiness’ of it all. It is very common to feel stuck or stranded on this cycle. It’s not just you, every Aries person is going through it. This is hard for you because you are at your brilliant best when you race through life, cut and thrust - and even parry. You are famously fast, competitive, confrontational and the action man or action woman of the zodiac.
Yet, here you are in July being forced to trawl through, and crawl through, the heaviest, slowest, most demanding weather of your lifetime, in career terms. This also applies to unpaid work, university or college. So, what can you do?
Know that this has a peak moment of intensity in January 2020. From there, you deal with what you want, where you stand, what is still desirable, in terms of your ambitions, and what no longer matters. In fact, from December 2020, you are in a totally different phase of your life, and from the year 2023, you will look back at the years before 2020 and realise what a massive chunk of your life history that was. For now, you are living through that history.
Please avoid the eclipse on 16th July (include 15th, 17th July for world time zone changes) for major judgements or action plans, like a job interview, a resignation, a high society wedding and so on. Anything that is about your status or success, essentially. Not only is this a Full Moon, which is always a stretch - it is also a blind spot or cover-up. An eclipse conceals it never reveals. Why make up your mind or spring into action when you cannot see and do not know? History proves astrology correct. An eclipse is zero visibility.

The July Crossroads for Travel, Education, Web, Books
July is a crossroads for your plans to travel, move, publish (online or in print), study, teach or deal with foreign people and places in general. This may be about your use of Twitter or your involvement with ‘the great divide’ between America and Britain, for example, or Australia and Asia. Why the crossroads? We have a lot of what Jimi Hendrix called Crosstown Traffic, going right across the Third House and Ninth House of your chart, Taurus. This is classically about communication, connection, global networking - and it may be at the level of academia or simple social media - but you have some roads to navigate here, Taurus. Take care and take your time.
Patience and Wisdom - Travel and Travel in the Mind
You can speak the same language as others, but be divided by culture and history, belief systems (particular religions) and the rest. Taurus, you are well-known for your staying power, fixed outlook and entrenched values, but even you are being seriously tested now. This may be about a particular book, website, course, workshop, trip, export question, faith or multimedia project.
The fact is, you have Saturn, the South Node and Pluto (all heavy-hitters in astrology) lined up in just one zone of your horoscope, which rules travel - and also travel in the mind. You are now well and truly past the halfway mark of this very demanding cycle, which began in a noticeable way back in 2008 and has deepened and intensified in 2018. Now, you have to get real. No other way of saying it. Denial is not a river in Egypt, and all that.
Others have been there before you and there is no fast or easy way out, no trick or tip that will get you in and out of this cycle! Sometimes you just have to bow to experience. Wisdom does not always sound exciting, but there is a reason particular wisdom (about your situation) has been tried, tested and trusted by so many people, over the course of time.
On a more practical note, when it comes to commuting, vacations, holidays, moving or emigration - or the negotiation involved in communication - online or in the real world - there are things you can do. And things you can avoid, too.
Mercury Retrograde is really high on my list. History and astrology tell us that it always begins and ends with a shadow, and so although you’ll read that Mercury (the planet of commuting and communication) starts going retrograde, or backwards, in July, that’s not really the whole story. Much of your July and August situation was set up in June.
Double-check arrangements, bank on strikes or extreme weather, perhaps hacking. Allow for the post or even Google or Twitter to hit a wall on this cycle. I would be particularly careful with anything in a foreign language, which Mercury rules. Trains, cars, planes, boats, bicycles and motorbikes (even horses) come under Mercury, who was the winged messenger of the gods. If it can go backwards or get stuck, it will - on this cycle.
Yet even a delay buys you time to think and ponder, Taurus. At the very core of your July issue is a fundamental question about being human and understanding your fellow human beings. We’re not so different but we use other languages or perhaps unique ways (spiritually) to explain the mysteries of life. Birth, death, the afterlife and the rest. This may have a part to play in your July experiences. Trying to see this as a temporary obstacle course with communication, understanding and comprehension, on the road to something easier, is a smart way to use the astrology.
There is no way you can get through the Cancer-Capricorn clashes of July 2019 without jumping through hoops with particular countries; their locals; your interests with other faces from other places! Saturn, the South Node and Pluto all in the demanding Ninth House of your chart, right opposite all the astrological weather in the Third House (internet, multimedia, publishing, basic communication, education) means hurdles. Taking a look back at where you were at in 2000 or 1981 could help you clear some.
Connection, Communication, Commuting
Have Plan B and Plan C for all kinds of connections, commutes and communications in July. Mercury, the messenger planet, appears to be slowing down, failing to move and even reversing. Even the best-laid plans, particularly those dating from June, or made on the hoof in July, are likely to stall or also reverse.
Fax machines, mobile phones, computers (of course, as discussed), train schedules, airports and the rest are at the heart of this, but although Mercury Retrograde is blamed for all manner of silly things - don’t assume it’s blanket ‘bad’ in July. Not at all. It’s blanket ‘delayed/reshaped’ and yet, as the lines of connection, communication and travel are at the very core of so much in your life, you need to be aware that July will require fancy footwork.
Mercury Retrograde is about the little things that go missing, or go wrong, in the context of much larger questions. We do associate this cycle in your own chart with brothers and sisters, perhaps cousins, and particularly those with whom you spent a lot of time as a child. (Often, you may have been each other’s babysitters while your parents were busy). This is one area where, for example, mid-year family holiday plans may need to be cautiously put together.

Finances, Property, Charity, Business in July
Gemini, you are in the unusual position of being brought to a crossroads of decision-making in July, yet also made to wait, or switch direction, by August. This is about your investments, property, company, taxes, loans, house, apartment, business, charity, legacy, family inheritance and so on.
The path of your ruler Mercury is retrograde, or apparently stuck and reversing. As Mercury describes your way with words and ideas, as well as the paperwork involved in any paper trail, not to mention the internet as a whole - you can expect delays. Beyond that you can also bank on what is ‘written’ being unwritten and then rewritten. This may happen more than once by August.
A classic example would be fluctuating property prices or mortgage interest rates. If you are going to make substantial decisions in July be aware of this astrological cycle, which begins earlier and ends later than Google tells you. In fact, history tells us that the real chaos begins on Mercury Retrograde Shadow, the period just before and after, the actual retrograde. If you are curious about this cycle, please hit Mercury Retrograde on Search on this website and not only read previous features, but also the hundreds of comments from my readers on outcomes. That is a real treasure trove of real-person, real-world, real-time research on this cycle. Read and learn. Most of all, unless you know exactly what you are doing (you may be a financial astrologer, for example) don’t mess with the markets on Mercury Retrograde. In the sign of Cancer, which is associated with the Fourth House of property, this looks like a global chain of chaos involving house prices and land values. There may also be earth changes which affect city or country-wide prices.
What can you do successfully in July? Treat it as a dress rehearsal. See it as a first or second attempt, sketching out rough details or hypothetical numbers, before you proceed to something definite.
This is really the first of two moments of truth for your funding, debts, past accounts and so on. The second is in January 2020, and it is possible that you are looking at a six-month contract here, or a six-month future review - for whatever reason. A classic example would be decisions about your salary, redundancy, retirement, bonus, pay rise and the rest, which chime with July but would not become real until the start of next year.
In general, with two eclipses also here in July (and you are ruled by the Moon) you need to be aware of blind spots and cover-ups. The 2nd and 16th of July find the Sun and Moon, which normally light your path, making a strange sequence of patterns with each other, which blot out the light. It will be like flying blind or walking blindfolded, if you prefer, as history tells us eclipses are never fully understood until years later.
I am sure my esteemed colleagues at Sun Sign School will all be telling you what I am about to share: avoid major decisions or assumptions on an eclipse. You could allow the day before, and the day after, for the world to catch up with itself.
A classic example would be putting your house on the market on an eclipse, blind to the fact that the council has plans for your street which will later affect its value. It really depends on your personal birth chart, which you will have as a Premium Member. If you have both Cancer and Capricorn factors, for example, you should be very wary of those eclipses.
Another example might be paying a lot of money for an apartment and borrowing heavily on fixed interest rate repayments, only to see the price of it plunge during Global Financial Crisis II, which I and other astrologers like Joanne Madeline Moore have been predicting for some time. This is more likely if your personal birth chart has a run of factors in Taurus, Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn.
In all cases, if you have any questions about finances, property, charity or business in July, remember astrology is a general weather report in a column like this, and for specifics, you need to go to a trusted, tried and tested accountant or money professional. This is just one tool in the tool kit of life, not the whole box.
You do need to look at the issue of power, Gemini. Look specifically at the balance of power, or the lack of balance, in an arrangement which likely involves your former, current or potential partner. Maybe a family member. Possibly the bank (although it feels like a relationship).
You have been dealing with Pluto in this zone of your chart since the year 2008 and along the way, intricate and complicated power-based relationships have evolved. A classic example would be your will, or a legacy owing to you. Another might be the aftermath of child custody and divorce. I am sure you have your own story.
Not only Pluto, but also Saturn and the South Node of karma are also there, and you will experience peak intensity in July, as the wheel of time spins around, and you must try to seek closure for the years 2000 and 1981 in particular, or deal with others (perhaps the universe as a whole) asking you to make spiritual amends, if it is you who owes others, rather than others who owe you.
This is the famous South Node cycle, which goes backwards in time by 19 years. It is known as the Rahu and Ketu cycle in India. In that culture, and also modern astrology culture in the West, every time a Node makes strong aspects, which it does in July 2019, you must answer to the past.
This may be a literal repetition involving the same agreements or people. It is far more likely to be symbolic, or a repetition of familiar themes. Gemini, the Nodes do not just stop at 1981 in their backward cycle. They reach back to the 1960’s and also to the 1940’s and then on and on, through the Millennia.
That is why this cycle, felt most in July 2019, is associated with past lives. The issue itself may not involve a vast amount of money, or a particularly big deal - yet the emotions which surface, and the energy it absorbs, may be profound. Why? Karma. You and a certain someone, or even a large organisation, like a government body, are going through some very old stuff here, and amends must be made, and dues must be paid, in either direction.
Right around the world in July, we will see chaos in the property market, particularly with American mortgage lenders, but in a general chain reaction across all major cities, as the value of apartments and houses, and the interest rates demanded by the banks, go into flux. This may have a domino effect on your own situation, Gemini, or that of someone close. The patterns in July are rare. Not only the eclipses, which are unusual, but also Mercury Retrograde - when nothing goes according to plan or sticks.
Now, some Gemini people will profit from this. No doubt about it. But you have to know what you are doing. Some financial astrologers like my colleagues in the business Olga Morales and Kate Silas spent a huge amount of time studying and researching these patterns. It’s not for the beginner.
In general, as far as you are concerned, know that whatever comes up for you now is about power, empowerment and disempowerment. That’s what the price or cost of the matter is. You also need to have patience. It will not be until December 2020 that you can say, once and for all, the obstacle race is over. This is long-haul stuff and you also need to keep your eye on January 2020 for reasons I have already mentioned.
A new arrangement will come out of all of this, in the end. A new deal. A healthier agreement where you, he, she or they agree to disagree on certain matters, but in general, share brand new territory. They call Pluto the planet of transformation and this is why. The landscape is altering, financially, in 2019, 2020 and the outcome will see far more compromise over who holds the reins, or who runs the show. That compromise will be helped a great deal if you can remember some basic astrology rules.
Never sign or buy on Mercury Retrograde unless you know exactly what you are doing (this is paraphrasing the late, great Debbie Kempton-Smith, my colleague from New York). Never act or judge on an eclipse, either, as history tells us that we are always flying blind at such times, and have no idea what we are actually doing, or what is actually going on. It is only years later that we find out what was really taking place, behind the scenes, or behind closed doors. So - July is tricky. No doubt about it. However, you will navigate it successfully, and come closer to what will be a very different sort of set-up in future, when those who felt powerless or without any influence, will find they have it. At the same time, any person or organisation which has been taking over, or just taking, will be utterly reduced in every way.
This is particularly true of anyone or anything with long roots in the year 2000 or 1981, in terms of deals done, or arrangements made. I am sure you know better than anyone (if this is the case) just what power is being wielded here. Yet I can reassure you that astrology and history, since 1930, have shown us - every single time a person or organisation power-trips others - there is a downfall.
It may be you that holds all the cards in a game, as you are owed money by others. This is a very common scenario too. Being sharply aware of that, handling it delicately and sensitively, and most of all - taking advice from those who know - will get you through. Yet, observe the Mercury Retrograde rules too. July is a good month to talk, and talk. To have a dress rehearsal or first attempt. The final cut should come later. Or the final division. That’s what history and astrology tell us.

The Other Side of the Scales
Cancer, we have a lot of Capricorn weather this month, which puts the focus on your other half, opponent, opposition or opposite number. Capricorn opposes you in the zodiac and so we are looking at the other side, your other 50% of the equation, the person/people against you - or even legal issues.
As a general rule avoid the eclipses now at the very start and middle of July, as you are ruled by the Moon. Eclipses conceal, they never reveal. ‘Don’t mess with eclipses’ as Debbie Kempton-Smith wrote in her classic book, Secrets from a Stargazer’s Notebook. Just as July begins, and as you get towards the middle of the month, be aware that you cannot see - and do not know.
This applies to your husband, wife, former lover, potential date. It applies to your boyfriend, girlfriend or your affair. It applies to your professional partner in a duet or double act.
Cancer, it is also about the other half of the scales of justice, so this may be a legal question about your ex, for example. This cycle ends in December 2020!
Just knowing the intensity does not last will help you, so think about taking a deep breath and going in for the long haul. Pace yourself. Saturn, the South Node and Pluto will not be completely out of your life until Christmas 2020 following a peak decision in January that year. So, you do need to measure your steps here.
Be aware of the karma. That is karma going back to the years 2000 and 1981, but also the karma you have gathered in the last year or two. Maybe you need to settle a score. Maybe a score needs to be settled with you, spiritually. The Node is about your soul!
Image, Profile, Reputation, Name, Photograph, Brand
Cancer, you are defined by your wife, former wife, your opponents and so on, this month. I mentioned the other side of the scales. Well, picture that as a reflective mirror that bounces your face, name, profile back to you. You are judged by this person, this month. If it’s a duel or battle, then your reputation may be seen in the light of this man or woman. If it is a marriage, similarly, you can’t really get away from ‘Me’ when you think about ‘We.’
This does not last! In fact, it’s just a 19-year cycle coming around again with a fade-out next year. In July, though, take yourself seriously. As in - the hologram version of you, online. Think about what others say about you or how you are seen, particularly on Twitter or Google search. The other person is your mirror, and this is your best chance all year to take stock and figure out what needs to change. Likely, changes will be required, on this cycle.

Your Inner World, Spirituality, Soul and Psychology
Leo, in the Middle Ages, the cycle you are set to experience now would have been about religion. It would have likely been about your life as a Catholic or Protestant, or your belief in God, the angels or the Devil himself.
In the year 2019, we are talking about broader definitions of what you believe, or have faith in, or know at a core level. This may be a refusal to believe in any kind of God or higher power at all. That, in itself, is a faith. You have faith in the fact that there is nothing there.
More commonly, especially with astrology readers, there is a trust in the heavens, the stars and planets, or the Universe. There is a belief sometimes in the Buddha, or Ganesha, or Krishna, or the Goddess. It is intensely personal and really a matter for you, when you are alone. Maybe - you and your journal.
I mention this, because in July we have a couple of eclipses (and you are ruled by the Sun, so it’s personal) in this zone of your chart. We also have a chain of oppositions, or complex clash patterns, in the same chart area. Thus, Leo, you need more time and space to yourself this month because you will have a lot to work out.
This may be your inner demons, so you need to see a counsellor. It may be your trust in your God. Your concept of heaven, or the stars. Just avoid the eclipses, please, on July 2nd and 16th. Allow a day either side (this is Debbie Kempton-Smith’s old rule and it works well). An eclipse is a blind spot. You cannot see and do not know. You will have low or no visibility.
All month long we also have Mercury Retrograde to watch. As he ducks in and out of this same chart zone, remember that nothing about your soul, your spirit or your inner life is firm, now. Nothing is fixed or final. An example of this might be your decision to become a Roman Catholic. Yet, the process takes months, not weeks, and the fine print on the agreement will change halfway through.
Therapy, or workshop holidays, are other good examples of plans which may get stuck, reverse or even come to nothing. July is a useful time to make rough sketches, or broad notes, for yourself. To treat life as a first attempt, when it comes to your God, or astrology, or your psyche, or group therapy. It’s the same with anything that involves you being by yourself, like a meditation retreat in India, or a period of dream coaching and dream interpretation. I’m really not crazy about July in terms of big moves regarding all that, because of this very mixed weather with Mercury. Try to treat the whole month as ‘what if’ and ‘wait and see’ and it will be far smoother.
Workload, Housework, Health, Fitness, Lifestyle
If ever there was an area of your life which has tested you, stretched your patience, put you through trials and utterly transformed you - it is this one. They call it the Sixth House of your chart and it is about your duty and service to others, on a daily basis, but also your duty to yourself, as you are not a robot and you need to function at your best, physically, to perform.
This cycle began with Pluto changing signs in 2008 and you have thus had over a decade to understand what it means, in terms of the politics with various colleagues, employers, staff, lecturers, clients, classmates and so on. I hope you have learned ‘what not to do’ along the way, Leo. If you power-trip others or misuse your control of a situation in any way, it does not end well. Similarly, you need to remember that any time a person or organisation has attempted to ‘heavy’ you, that ultimately that individual is demoted, resigns, is sacked or moved sideways. It is the same with large organisations. They are moved out, down or sideways.
There is certainly karma from the year 2000 coming around in July 2019, and also the year 1981, if you can remember back that far. This may be you, who is owed - or you, who owes! This month is likely to have profound effects, particularly as you are in a position where you must serve the needs of others. By this, I mean housework (cooking, cleaning, childcare, looking after the dog or cat) but also paid work (putting others first, every day).
Leo, please be utterly honest with yourself, in a mirror or diary if necessary, about your real feelings regarding work and housework. I include university or college life here, and also volunteer work. If there is a disconnect between what you do, and what you feel, then you need to address this, before your body produces some kind of condition, that gets in the way of your routine or tasks.
A classic example is the Leo taxi driver who dislikes his job but will not admit it to himself, because he is too scared to change careers. So, his foot or back goes out, which makes driving impossible. His body has intervened to get his soul what it needs - a different line of work that does not involve sitting down or driving.
You will have your own story going on, but in astrology, the Sixth House is about the secret collusion between the body and the soul. You must work, somehow, or do the housework. You also need to feel as right as possible - as least compromised as possible - about that role. You are, after all, a leader not a servant. Yet, you also need to be honest about why you are making compromises and to what end. Doing that will reduce the need for your body to give you a reason to pause, or slow down. Awareness is all. Consciousness is everything.
If you do need to attend to food, drink, fitness, doctors, healers and the rest, then consider the duty you must perform every day, for others, or the service required of you. Sometimes dreams can show you great truths that are otherwise hidden or lost. Writing dreams down, particularly after asking yourself to ‘reveal all’ before you fall asleep, can be very instructive. My friend, the author and dream coach Jane Teresa Anderson in Tasmania, Australia, is a master of this.
Leo, we have Mercury Retrograde in full force at the moment. Be mindful of paperwork, handshake agreements, diary plans, digital schedules and so on - stalling or being scrapped - being reshaped or delayed. This is a general comment. It may well affect your working day in July. A good rule of thumb is to agree ‘in principle’ or to make non-binding agreements to be firmed up later, when Mercury is behaving normally - allow from the second half of August onwards when the shadow is over.
Pluto, Saturn and the South Node all in your Sixth House of duty, service, daily workload, the body, fitness and health do suggest a moment of truth in July. You may become wholly or mostly vegetarian. You may begin to consciously change gears in your career. You also have Uranus, the planet of revolution, independence, freedom and new technology in your career house. This has never happened in your adult life, Leo, so we might assume July is an epic crossroads for you in terms of how you work, why you work, when you work and for whom!
Just treat July as the rehearsal. The Director’s Cut (yours) can come later in the year. You’d also have to bet that what went down at work or university in the years 1981 and 2000 has a karmic impact now. You owe others spiritually, or you are owed. There is a big push towards closure in July, coming from the past. We may even be talking past lives here, so you all/both knew each other before. These cycles go back in time past the 1960s, the 1940s and through the centuries.
If July feels awfully familiar in terms of what happens with work, unpaid work, university or your body - there is an astrological reason for that. Knowing what comes next, because you’ve been there, done that (or seen it all before) is a real advantage. It means you can relax, somewhat, about situations which are otherwise rather hard work. This is the same for everyone. Not just you. We are all having these heavy, heavy Capricorn transits and they do not stop until December 2020. Deep breath! If you also have Capricorn factors in your personal birth chart, then July is a double whammy, with certain changes affecting you, your boss, lecturer, staff, colleagues, clients, classmates or your entire profession.

Pregnancy, Children, Sexual Relationships, Millennials, Gen Y
July needs more care than usual, Virgo, as you have not only Pluto, but also Saturn, the South Node and a Full Moon in the horoscope zone which rules youth and the young. This pulls in sexual relationships where you could end up co-parenting with someone eventually. Pregnancy-potential sex is on that list, along with more developed marriages or relationships where another baby, an adoption, or step-parenting is a possibility.
Some Virgo people are broadly concerned with young people as a whole, so you may teach children, or coach teenagers at sport, or run a marketing campaign aimed at Gen Y, also working with Gen Y on the team. This cycle will find you, in a very personal way. No two Virgo people are the same, even though this weather is alike for everybody. It is essentially about patience, effort, persistence, realism (not a time for wishful thinking: a time for reality checks), karma from the years 2000 and 1981 - more on that later - and also a deeper understanding of how power works.
Is that enough? It’s more than enough to be going on with, but the first rule of thumb is to avoid the eclipse for decisions or judgement calls. That 15th-17th July landmark is also a Full Moon, so you or others will be stretched anyway. An eclipse is always a cover-up or a blind spot. A missing part of the jigsaw. Often, you are never even aware there is a missing part. Why go in blindly? If you can make choices at any time at all, you may prefer to do it well away from the eclipse.
An example of this would be adopting a baby from Africa, only to discover (years later) that the child is not from the family you assumed. Another example would be starting a sexual relationship with a person who is covering up the truth regarding an ex-lover.
Eclipses are not negative or positive, they just conceal. They always conceal, they never reveal, so why risk it? Find another time to make up your mind. We call all children and young people into this zone of your chart, so we may be referring to your godson or goddaughter, your niece or nephew, your grandchild or stepchild. On a broader level, as discussed, we may be looking at Millennials or Gen Y, in the context of your paid or unpaid work. Eclipses black things out or blot them out from view.
Virgo, I mentioned power and people politics in the context of children or young people, and perhaps lovers. You are familiar with this, having been through so many scenarios since 2008. Now, there is another one. Use your experience. You know what not to do! Aim for compromise. A new world will come out of this. There may be a need to split time, or divide rights, roles and responsibilities. Child custody is an example of this.
Saturn is the hard work part. This cycle is notorious for stretching your patience, asking you to wait (and wait) and tolerate. You learn as you go. So do other people. In fact, 2019 and 2020 are best described as one long learning experience. This is most obvious to you, of course, if you have become a father or mother for the very first time. This new baby will be your teacher.
Saturn also sends you to the experts. When in doubt about children, teenagers, young adults, pregnancy or sexual relationships, head straight for people or organisations counted as tried, tested and trusted. Those over the age of 60 know the most because they have been through two Saturn Returns.
The years 2000 and 1981 may carry karma, which must be repaid. Perhaps your Millennial offspring was born that year. We go back into past lives with this cycle too, through to the 1960s, the 1940s and even down the centuries. Virgo, this may explain why a relatively small issue about a godson, or a one-night stand, has such a massive impact on you emotionally or spiritually. You’ve been here before. Back then, it was a bigger deal. A really major life event. Now it is not, but the karmic ‘clang’ remains.
It is very common on this cycle to feel that no matter what you say or do, to change things or improve them, you are stuck. Others go through the motions and nothing shifts. The purpose of this stickiness is to force you to change on the inside. Alter your approach, angle and attitude and develop a sense of humour, patience, tolerance, compassion, understanding and so on.
This does end. It ends at Christmas 2020. For now, you have to do the hard yards, as we say in Australia. Karma requires that kind of stretch. There are some things you can do to help yourself, though.
One is to avoid that eclipse period, as mentioned. Another is to recognise that you will be empowered once this cycle is over. It is transforming you. Ask any Leo you know what happened to them between 2000-2008 regarding pregnancy, the world of children, fertility and so on. They had this cycle before you and will know.
The empowerment will come as a result of your own willpower in a situation and that is your lasting prize. You will also welcome the relief and release of a very different, far easier phase in your life from December 2020 when Saturn finally quits Capricorn. For now, if life repeats and revolves, remember - change on the inside.
Friends and Groups
The July astrology weather for friends and groups will bring a blind spot or cover-up on the eclipses of July 2nd and 16th, so be aware - that you will not be aware at all! Why act or judge then, if you don’t have to? Choose another time.
July weather for friends, groups, trade unions, guilds, secret societies, rock bands and the rest (Twitter, for example) is also rather stuck and in flux. Mercury Retrograde is with us and you are ruled by Mercury. Allow for people to change their minds about group plans. Allow for storms, floods, extremely hot climate emergency temperatures, strikes and other X factors to get in the way of team plans. Don’t just book and forget. Check!
You may find new friends flit in and out of your life by August. Some will be tricky customers as slippery as Mercury itself. Be really careful around that eclipse. It’s the same with any group which asks you to join up or sign up. Ask yourself where the money is. That’s always a really good way to check the integrity (or not) of a group. As Taurus Barbra Streisand says, ‘Follow the money.’
July sounds rather negative, put like this, but it’s really not. It just requires some clever handling. Friendships and groups which are good sources of energy, strength and support are not really going to alter much, but you do need to be savvy about changes to your original plans, as some will be cancelled, others will be delayed or profoundly altered. That may cost you money so get insured.
An example would be a school reunion over the vacation which runs aground after pilots go on strike, or there is a lightning strike at various airports. You get the picture.
Mercury Retrograde, the North Node of karma and the eclipses all in this zone of your chart suggest a long, slow working-out of spiritual debts and soul credits with your friends, now. Many of these friends will be involved with a group, like a football team’s supporters’ circle or a charity. You go back years with these people, or into past lives. That is why everything is taking so damn long. You need a very, very long period of delays in order to absorb things, emotionally and spiritually. When nothing really changes or shifts, with friends or groups, it is because you are being required to do some inner work. That takes time. You are being ‘bought time’ by enforced circular situations or an unbelievable amount of repetition with people.

Ambition, Position and Mission - Crossroads Decision!
You have two eclipses (always a blind spot or cover-up) and a stop-start situation, affecting your mission, ambition and position in July. Libra, if you can treat the whole month as a dress rehearsal or work in progress, so much the better. This applies to your career, unpaid role, place in high society or university/college life.
There are a couple of reasons for hits. First of all, the eclipses (avoid these periods for big judgements or decisions) fall on July 2nd and 16th. Allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. You just won’t see or won’t know - not for some years. If you can sign, judge or decide any time, try and do it in the second half of August or later. Astrologically speaking, as so many of my colleagues in the Sun Sign School are also saying, July is complicated and requires a fair amount of caution.
Mercury, the planet of communication, negotiation, paperwork, contracts, handshake agreements, media announcements, publishing, printing, the internet and mass media as a whole, is not on form. He is going backwards and forwards, and also pausing. This also puts your discussions, paper trail or digital trail on a really strange zig-zag path until the middle of August. Allowing for the pre and post shadow, which is extremely important (despite what Google might tell you about Mercury Retrograde) this has been building since June and does not stop until you are into the second half of next month. Treat July as a first attempt or first take. The final edit comes later.
If you absolutely must go ahead, allow for changes, reversals, delays or even a complete scrapping of plans. This applies more strongly if you have Capricorn factors in your personal birth chart, which you can check now on your screen if you are a Premium Member.
There is a fair amount of karma here, Libra. We are talking the year 2000 and 1981. You owe, or are owed, in terms of your ambitions, position or mission. Everything goes around and comes around in July, quite obviously to your eye - once you know that you are looking for old karmic obligation. We may even be talking past lives here. It’s possible.
You are going for closure, until 2020, according to your horoscope. Or, you should be! This means closing the loop of time, going back into life as it was for you around 19 years ago, and 19 years before that, and so on. Closure means settling up, in terms of your old career, university or college life, the period you spent between jobs, or your stake on the social ladder.
If other people seem to keep saying and doing the same things, without any progress or movement, take it as a sign that you need to shift your attitude on the inside. When you cannot alter what goes on around you, you can at least develop your best qualities. This is the making of you, in terms of your soul or spirit. Years from now, long after you have forgotten the dithering and plan-ditching of July 2019, you will remember what it made of you, and who it made you - that’s really success - and will last all your life, actually.
Family, House, Apartment, Hometown, Homeland
Libra, you deserve a large glass of Pol Roger for passing the halfway mark of the most demanding cycle in over 240 years, in terms of your family members, house, household, hometown, homeland or apartment. This has been building since 2008, as every other year you seem to be dealing with major questions about people politics, the balance of power, those in control and your own levels of control or empowerment!
You have been thrown any number of situations to deal with, ranging from your partner, to in-laws, to children, to landlords. Flatmates, builders and landladies. The local council or your government. The direction of your kitchen or the direction of your nation. July is a very good month to look back and remember. You also need to learn from your mistakes as well as reflect on what has always worked for you.
You may want to avoid the eclipse period around 16th July, which is a Full Moon, so it’s a big stretch anyway. It is also a moment of not seeing, not knowing, not even guessing - regarding home and family, your people or your place. An eclipse does what you would expect, in astrology. It leaves you in the dark. It may take years, actually, before you realise what was likely taking place in the middle of July 2019.
Take it slowly. Give yourself more rest, time, space and peace. Even if you are on holiday or ski vacation now, or on a beach somewhere, you won’t be able to get away from the basic home or family questions. Maybe they are even building in intensity, as you could all be glamping together in a tent or just letting out your home, welcoming family to stay with you and so on.
Libra, you are all about the scales of justice, equality, balance and fairness. Particularly so with your former, current or potential partners. Love or work! You are here to settle the balance, all the time, and thus you have to refer to this person, even in your own memory, when you are also figuring out what to do next about the household, the home, the property investment, your home town, the relatives, the country and so on. Chiron in this zone of your chart suggests you are here to learn in 2019, regarding the scales and how to balance them - and it is likely to be a lesson in what you can get away with, or what others can get away with too.
The South Node in Capricorn, Saturn there too - and Pluto - suggests you are in this for the long game. It will not be until January 2020 that there is a peak moment of decision-making and a crossroads. This may be a post-Christmas or early New Year choice about who to live with, how to deal with the family tree, where to live, how to live and so on. Throughout, you learn about your priorities.
I mentioned issues about people politics or power going back years. This remains. You know not what to do. Allowing too much emotion into what should essentially be a practical arrangement that suits everyone is smart. Leave strong feelings - yours, his, hers or theirs - at the door. This can and will work out, but it is going to take time. Maybe longer than you would like, as Saturn is about the slow passage of time - the waiting game and test of endurance - the obstacle course. Yet, Libra, you come out of this entire cycle at Christmas 2020 with an utterly transformed family landscape, sense of home, investment in your place in the world - your patch of turf - your connection to the past. Your heritage and culture. Your parents’ and grandparents’ hometown or homeland. This goes beyond a solid feeling about bricks and mortar, which you will ultimately have. It goes into how your soul feels about having won, long and hard, the quest to fit within the family jigsaw puzzle with your own piece. It is a developing picture of who belongs to you, to whom you belong, where you belong and why.

Foreign and Regional Connections and Commuting
Scorpio, have Plan B and C for all your plans to travel and commute in July. This also includes your accommodation of travelers, all global and distant digital communication, and everything from airlines to yachts. The fact is, you have a zig-zag pattern right across your zones of ‘A to B’ which is why ‘Plan B and C’ is a really good idea. Actually, a lot of my colleagues at Sun Sign School would tell you it’s essential.
Check weather conditions, strikes, rapid developments (Twitter is great for that) and just be more aware than usual of the Mercury Retrograde cycle in your zone of foreign people and places, regional differences and the worldwide web. Tied into this is any course, workshop or degree - seminars and casual learning - but also publishing, in terms of books and eBooks too.
There is a lot to say about the eclipses too. In general, steer clear of major assumptions, action plans or decisions on July 2nd and 16th. Allow a day either side of those dates for time zone gaps. I have readers in Auckland and also Los Angeles, so I need to cover for all of you, as these mighty eclipses pass across the planet.
They are what you would suspect. A lack of light shed! An unusual, peculiar blackout of information. A lack of knowing or seeing. I don’t know if you have ever seen a total eclipse - I witnessed one at Glastonbury years ago - and it was peculiar to see the British skies turn so dark, so early in the morning.
These eclipses are not quite so attention-grabbing in terms of news headlines, but they will grip the astrologers and astrology readers out there. You’ll see a lot of wrong information about them. Please trust history! History and astrology tell us, eclipses coincide with everlasting mysteries, and ‘case never closed’ outcomes. Often, we never ever know what really happened or not. Given all this is affecting you with your transport, travel, holidays, vacations, foreign and regional connections, education, publishing, the worldwide web, multimedia and so on - be aware that you are unaware.
Debbie Kempton-Smith, lately of New York, wrote one of my favourite astrology books of all time. In it, she penned a long piece about eclipses. In fact, she refused to meet me in Manhattan one time, because of an eclipse. I learned from her. Things are way off course, off track, off beam at such times.
An example of how you might go off track, would be a new development in Europe or Asia, near these days or on them. Rather than assume or guess, just assume you’re not seeing the full picture. Is there another day to decide?
Scorpio, we also have to look at the loaded subject of communication in general. Your emails. Your feelings about the giants - Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter. Fox (of course) and also the household names that affect how you are heard, read and understood. It is really no exaggeration to say July is a crossroads. We’re also talking your actual speech and hearing here - your eyesight and comprehension - your literacy - the fundamentals!
This goes beyond how you feel about the way these corporations control how you are understood and understand. It goes into core basics and quite a few Scorpios will know what I am talking about.
No matter how you are affected, though, know that people politics surrounding a specific course, idea, website, blog, social media channel, ideas, project - is here to stay until 2023.
You are right across this, being ruled by Pluto, a planet we associate with enforced compromise, the loss and gain of power, the feeling of disempowerment or empowerment, willpower and power, self-control and control - and it’s really all about communication for you. Pluto has been in this zone of your chart since 2008.
In July 2019, he is joined by Mercury Retrograde right opposite, so we have classic mistakes, missteps, delays, reversals, technical failure, human error, reshaped plans and the rest to get through. I would expect extreme weather (flooding, storms or extremely hot climate emergency) to affect you so please double check insurance or just daily scheduling.
This kind of thing does affect how things are with your general ideas, projects and plans. On the plus side it buys you time to think, deeply, about who and what matters most. If you are launching anything now - a book, website, blog, magazine, course - allow for this to be a dress rehearsal and for the actual final outcome to unfold only from the middle of August and onwards.
That is how long it takes for Mercury Retrograde to complete, from shadow to shadow. July is a superb time to rehearse, Scorpio. It’s an excellent time for a first take, a second take. Maybe a storyboard, a rough sketch in a journal, a long beta testing period.
We would not normally care so much about yet another Mercury Retrograde as you tend to have three a year. Yet this time we also have a loaded horoscope, with eclipses too - and the South Node of karma, Pluto and Saturn in your zone of communication.
It may be that what went down in 2000 or 1981 affects you in July. If so, try to accept that you are being paid your dues, or paying dues, and it would be about just these matters - foreign and regional differences, multimedia, the internet, writing, public speaking, travel, vacations, holidays, commuting and so on.
This does end, Scorpio. It ends with a big finish in December 2020 when you will look back at the years since 2008 and congratulate yourself on learning the mother of all lessons about being heard and read effectively. Namely, that willpower gives you power. And patience is a glory.

Money, Property, Business, Charity, Legacies, Taxation
Sagittarius, get everything in writing and read the fine print, in July. This specifically concerns your tax return, shares, investments, house or apartment, dividends, legacy, will, credit card, mortgage, bank, settlement, bonus, rent, income, outgoings, debt and money owed to you (naturally).
We have Mercury Retrograde, so nothing sticks or finishes in the same shape, that it began. Nothing was ever really fixed, firm, finished or final as you went from June to July and it won’t be until the second half of August, that you have the facts and figures in place. Getting there from here involves a major crossroads.
This may be your shareholders, the value of your shares, the rise and fall of property, family or partnership agreements - or at the very basic level, your shared apartment and the shared television rental, or your eBay income. You are just not going to get away with Mercury, the horoscope symbol of paperwork, emails, the mail, contracts, form filling and negotiation - going back and forth - and also getting stuck.
This is enforced mood-measuring and budget-making. You are being made to wait, Sagittarius, so that you can get real about who and what matters most. We are talking real prices here. Real costs or savings, about what is personal to you. Not necessarily what others think is valuable. One can say ‘this London apartment is worth over a million’ but then you do a different kind of sum and realise it’s not worth a hill of beans, if you think about…other values. This is exactly the point of July, Sagittarius. It is about going back in time to the year 2000 and maybe 1981. Past lives may even feature here. You will be made to wait, and rethink facts and figures, talk about the numbers one more time or retrace your steps - so you are forced to ‘juice’ the issues and concentrate them, the better to figure out the figures. This has nothing to do with your old sums and math, and everything to do with what makes the most financial sense in 2020.
On a practical note, don’t sign or buy unless you get everything in writing and checked out. Even then we have two eclipses so there will be a cover-up or blind spot. If you or your family or corporation have been involved in money laundering, for example, you need to be aware that you are unlikely to get away with it in July. This will take time and it won’t be until January 2020 that the Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall, to quote Dylan, but fall it will. That’s karma. And you have the Nodes of karma in both your cash zones.
Sagittarius I really don’t think the majority of my readers are involved with anything remotely approaching such nefarious activities. (And I include Gemini, your opposite sign, in that). You are likely an idealist and visionary, if you are true to your sign, and the money, property, charity, tax or business issues in July are likely to be about the trade-offs you have made with yourself and others about saving/making/repaying.
In July, nothing goes according to plan, no matter if it’s a will or a joint bank account with your partner. This makes you look back to the last 10-11 years and get a proper reckoning - an accurate estimate. You of all people know that this whole thing has been about so much more than just pounds, dollars or euros! Learn from the past and get real about the future, financially, that way the future will be far less of a big deal to you, around six months from now when we have the mother of all line-ups in Capricorn, the sign that rules your values, valuables and ‘precious and priceless.’
Premium? Go on.
Rivals, Enemies, Opponents - Former, Current, Future Partners
Capricorn, the other person (so central to everything in July) holds up a mirror to you. The person you see reflected there shows you the internet version of yourself, or the ‘first impressions’ version of who you are. This is the hologram, the title, the face, the shape, the style, the reputation and so on.
The other person is your former, current or potential partner. Perhaps your enemy, opponent or rival. Every Jared has an Ivanka. Every Kate Moss has her former lovers! It may be about professional interests, not personal, so the other person here is not really about your sexual or romantic past, present or potential future at all. It may be just work. Just business.
Some practical pointers (and you are a practical sign!) Saturn, the South Node and Pluto in Capricorn, your own sign, tell you that the way you are perceived, seen, received - is a powerful, powerful issue for you. It has been that way since 2008. In July you will also be sent back to the years 2000 and 1981 for reckoning up, karmically. What goes down in July, started then, in a symbolic or thematic way.
An example might be your first-class photograph in 2000, or your wedding video. Maybe your big website launch. Back in 1981 maybe you had your first baby photos. You’ll have your own story.
Karma rolls on in July and you will get closure by 2020 but you have to take it slowly. The ‘Me’ in Social Me-Me-Me-Media is a really central part of what unfolds. It’s personal because it’s about you but try to remember - this is not you. It is a version of you.
Best way through? Allow for people politics or even real issues about who/what is ‘the boss of me’ to unfold. Maybe you don’t want the Facebook corporation controlling how you are perceived! There may be people telling you what to wear or how much to weigh. There could be questions here about your reputation. Your title (whatever that is). Be aware that you have had over 10 years to learn from mistakes and also remember what you got right. Also be aware this is a long-haul lesson about the real world. It goes on through next year, but it gets easier, progressively. Skip the eclipses for ‘Me’ decisions or judgement calls as you won’t see clearly then. We’re talking July 2nd and 16th - allow a day either side.
The Other Person or The Other Side
Eclipses in Cancer, your opposite sign, and Mercury Retrograde there, tells you to bypass July as decision month about/for your enemy, rival or opponent. You cannot see and will not know. You will be held up, see your plans change or come to nothing. It will involve words that do not stick, computer or telephone issues, or even the post going in the wrong direction.
This is really not some kind of Chicken Little ‘sky fall’ moment with Capricorns squawking and flapping their wings, heading for the hills. It’s just a common sense necessity - using astrology - you can pick things before they develop.
Do not trust anyone with a forked tongue especially near the eclipses. Mercury Retrograde can appear as ‘bent’ news or news-carriers and gatherers, like that fake person on Facebook.
Be really hip to anyone who is against you, or likely to be against you, Capricorn. As I write this for you I can hear Stevie Wonder singing ‘very superstitious’ and although nobody really wants astrology to be at the level of a superstition, we have to say that when you see eclipses and Mercury Retrograde, plus the North Node of karma in your opposite sign - the opposite side or the opposite person against you - will not be a walk in the park!
A little common sense goes a long way. This is really not the month to launch into some epic battle that involves a lot of paperwork unless you actually like using a magnifying glass and pair of tweezers. And also - spinning your wheels.
Your Seventh House, ruled by Cancer, your opposite sign, is about opposite sides in any situation. Given the astrological weather at that Full Moon eclipse in particular, on July 16th, think twice before you just wander into any situation with a certain someone. Or a whole bunch of them.
Premium? Go on.
Your Inner Life, Beliefs, Faith, Psychology and Your God
What makes you tick deep down? Where does your soul reside, Aquarius? Matters spiritual, psychic, psychological or faith-based dominate July. You have a Full Moon and an eclipse in this zone of your chart, so you’ll be in the dark about some of it. You also have the sign of Capricorn, one behind your own, fully tenanted by the South Node, Pluto and Saturn.
To say this has been a long journey is no exaggeration. You began it in 2008. You will not be finished with your inner life until 2023 when Pluto changes signs.
In July, because of the intensity of this line-up in your chart, you will need more time and space alone. Your God (or even just your idea about the universe, even if you have faith it’s a random part of the multiverse) is now on the line. It takes time. Saturn takes a long time to teach you what you need to know. It takes patience and a certain amount of slog.
This is really about the confessional box of the Roman Catholic Church or lighting a candle for your own reasons. It is about your diary or journal, perhaps therapy (by yourself or in a group). It is about the angels on your shoulder but also your demons too, Aquarius. This is quite the astrological line-up and it is the first of two, the second one coming in January 2020.
You may need more rest, peace, space, time, quiet, sleep, meditation, long walks, long baths and so on. There is a real question here about your willpower and self-control with Pluto around! There may also be karma dating from the years 1981 or 2000 as the Node rotates backwards by 19-year cycles.
Avoid the eclipses for any of the above. They fall on July 2nd and 16th. You won’t see, won’t know, can’t view things in full and may be left guessing for years to come about what was really going on, or what your role actually was. Allow a day either side.
Workload, Lifestyle, Health, Fitness, Service, Duty, Routine
Aquarius, we have an eclipse, the North Node of past lives (and recent karma, going back to the early Eighties or early Noughties) and also Mercury Retrograde lining up now.
Get everything in writing and read the fine print about work, university/college, unpaid work or housework. It may not stick, may not last, or will be held up or change shape by mid-August.
Your fitness for work, your basic mental or physical health, your energy levels and so on - are also in the zone for these patterns now. Be extremely cautious about assuming anything or even guessing it, across the eclipses, July 2nd and 16th. Allow a day either side.
It’s not a great time to start or finish a job or figure out people/personnel, even though these matters may come up on vacation and holiday time, as people come and go. There may be specific body issues related to the intense heat or cold where you are or extreme rain. Have a look at all of this as part of your general horoscope overview for July. Mercury is a symbol of communication, travel and transport. Paperwork, discussion, negotiation and the internet.
He is in your zone of housework, work, unpaid roles, university and college life. This is also where we find clues about how your body affects your mind and soul, and how your soul sometimes ‘drives’ your body in a particular direction, the better to bring about some objective that only your unconscious mind knows about. All this is deep astrology and not really the stuff of a column but if you are curious, look up Sixth House on Search.
Arrangements may stall or drastically alter within weeks, so be aware of that. Nothing will really be ‘business as usual’ until we are heading out of August towards September. What’s great about it is that you get to see what’s what, who is where and why it matters! That is what an enforced waiting game can do for you. It helps you to crystallise, very sharply, your priorities.
Premium? Go on.
Friends and Groups - Willpower is Power
Here we have not only Pluto, but also Saturn, the South Node and ultimately, a peak moment of choice in January 2020 - ahead of you. Friends and groups show you that to be empowered you have to use your willpower. To feel in control, you have to use your self-control. Unless you grit your teeth, set your jaw, gird your loins and roll up your sleeves, Pisces, you may well feel pushed and pulled by something or someone!
There is karma here going back to 1981, 2000, the 1960’s or even the 1940’s depending on your age (schooldays during the war perhaps?) It goes back into past lives too. You may well have all/both gone through a spiritual issue before. It’s one for the soul.
You will get final closure by 2020 but July is really about working through these issues about who or what is in charge, and the need for a compromise. A new order. Sharing! It will take time and be har work because Saturn is in there too. Work through it. You will all/both be in such a different space by Christmas 2020, but for now, you need to pace yourself about what is required. If you feel the need to read around the issues, or ask an expert, then go for it. Avoid the eclipses for decisions/judgements about or involving these people. It may be a rock band or football team. Twitter or Mumsnet. These eclipses fall July 2nd and 16th - allow a day either side. Eclipses conceal they never reveal!
Sexual Relationships, Babies, Children, Millennials, Generation Y
With all of the above, Pisces, the eclipse rules also apply. Avoid judging or acting on July 2nd and 16th and allow a day either side for the world to catch up with itself. The light of the Sun and Moon which usually shows you the way or blazes a trail, is obscured then. You or others will be in the dark. If you have Cancer factors in your personal birth chart (check to see, if you are a Premium Member) this will likely be about your children, godchildren, grandchildren or young relatives, or a sexual relationship which may end up in co-parenting eventually).
Whatever your chart looks like, the Cancer weather now is pretty inconclusive! Mercury Retrograde is in Cancer so anything from the plans for a Christening, to contraception prescriptions, to your son’s education may be affected. Mercury is about communication, information, transportation and negotiation and when he stalls, goes backwards or even eradicates his own original messages to you, or plans for you - life is not normal.
Allow all of July and the first half of August to send you off track. I think it’s likely schools, colleges or universities will be affected by extreme weather, strike action and so on. This may also touch your life. Sexual relationships with parenthood potential are also unlikely to make much sense, stick, or remain as planned! Be aware of that. It’s not the most useful time of the year to join a dating website.
If you are around children, Millennials or Generation Y for professional or unpaid work reasons there may also be rescheduling. I am sure you know to put ‘re’ in front of every word on this cycle. So, you rethink, review, rewrite and so forth.
It’s a good month for rehearsal. For first attempts or rough drafts. For vague plans to firm up later on in August or September. Not so great for ‘absolutes’ involving your daughters, for example, or nieces and nephews. Great time to research and ponder your choices. Not so hot…in the extreme hot weather, climate emergency conditions we would expect to see in Europe and America, in July. The astrology is pretty clear about that.
