July 2018 Horoscopes
This is another month for learning patience. This is something Aries always needs to learn but especially now. We are still near the peak of retrograde activity for the year (until the 10th and after the 26th). Add to this that there is a lot of earth in the Horoscope this month - 40% from the 10th onwards - and you have another message to slow down. You might as well enjoy yourself. You enter a yearly personal pleasure peak from the 22nd onwards. Health is much improved this month and will get even better after the 22nd. If you want to enhance it further give more attention to the heart and be sure to enjoy your life. Your Health Planet spends the month in Leo, your 5th House. Two eclipses this month insure there will be much excitement - and probably with a delayed reaction. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th is the one to watch. It is stressful on you. It impacts on the children and children figures in your life - bringing dramas in their personal lives. You and they should take a more relaxed schedule. It brings dramatic financial changes to a parent or parent figure as well. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th impacts on the home and family – as every Lunar Eclipse does - bringing dramas in the home and in the lives of family members. Often repairs are needed in the home as hidden faults are brought to light. This eclipse occurs in your 11th House showing dramas in the lives of friends and testing your high-tech equipment. High tech equipment will be more “temperamental” that period. This eclipse impacts on Mars, the Lord of your Horoscope, so take a nice easy schedule. Avoid stressful activities.
The slowdown in the world and the power in the earth signs is actually comfortable for you. You like things slower and Earth is your native element. But two eclipses this month will shake up the status quo - something you don’t like. Both eclipses affect neighbors, siblings, sibling figures, cars and communication equipment. So, siblings and neighbors should take a more relaxed schedule. A good idea to drive more carefully around the eclipse periods - drive defensively and with mindfulness. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th impacts on the home and family as well. There can be dramas in the lives of family members and especially parents or parent figures. Often repairs are needed in the home as hidden flaws (they have most likely been there for a long time) come to light. The dream life is likely to be hyper active too, but don’t pay too much attention. They are not really significant. Sometimes - around an eclipse - they can show you undigested experiences in your past. This is the only value. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th seems stronger on you. Again, it affects parents and parent figures and brings career changes. People involved in your career can have life changing kinds of dramas too. This eclipse impacts on your spiritual planet, Mars, bringing changes in your practice, teachings and teachers. (Keep in mind that Mars is “out of bounds” from the 9th onwards - so you are searching for spiritual answers outside your normal sphere.) There can be shakeups in charitable or spiritual organizations that you’re involved with and dramas in the lives of guru figures. Health needs more watching from the 22nd onwards.
Two eclipses this month are bringing important financial changes. Generally, this happens through disruption. The events of the eclipse show how your current financial planning or strategy is unrealistic. It forces you to make needed changes. In the end, these will be good, but it’s not so comfortable while its happening. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your money house. This not only impacts on your finances but brings dramas in the lives of people involved in your finances - and often with the money people in your life. Every Solar Eclipse affects cars, communication equipment, neighbors, siblings and sibling figures. This one is no different. Drive carefully and mindfully this period. There can be disruptions in your neighborhood and in the lives of neighbors. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 9th House and impacts on both Mars and Uranus. Probably best to avoid foreign travel this period. If you must travel schedule your traveling days around the eclipse. This eclipse impacts on students at the college level. There can be changes in the educational plans - events force them to shift course. It brings shakeups in your place of worship and in the lives of religious figures you’re involved with. In many cases it produces a “crisis of faith” - belief systems get tested and may need revision. A good thing, but not so comfortable while its happening. The eclipse’s impact on Mars shows that high tech equipment will get tested. There are dramas in the lives of friends and shakeups in professional organizations you’re involved with.
Two eclipses this month are impacting on finances. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th impacts on your personal finances (and this happens twice a year - you’re probably used to it by now). The Lunar Eclipse impacts on the finances of the spouse, partner or current love - forcing him or her to make adjustments. In spite of all the turmoil here, the month ahead is prosperous. On the 22nd you enter a yearly financial peak. There is much retrograde activity this month, but finances don’t seem affected. Both of the eclipses impact on you in a very personal kind of way. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your 1st House and the Lunar Eclipse of the 27th impacts on the Lord of the Horoscope - the Moon. So, it is time to re-evaluate yourself - to re-define yourself for yourself. If you don’t, others will do it for you and that is not so pleasant. It’s a healthy thing to do. As you change your inner concept of yourself, your outer appearance - the look you present to others - will also change. This will go on for a few months. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th impacts on Mars and Uranus. These can bring confrontations with death - usually on a psychological level. The eclipse happens in your 8th House and impacts on the Lord of the 8th House. So, there can be dreams of death or recommendations for surgeries and the like. Sometimes these things happen with people close to you. One way or another the cosmos wants you to get clearer about death - to understand it in a deeper way. The impact on Mars shows career changes and dramas in the lives of people involved in your career. Since many planets are retrograde this month there can be a “delayed reaction” to the eclipses.
Two eclipses this month are creating major change in your spiritual life, dramas in the lives of guru figures and shakeups in spiritual or charitable organizations that you’re involved with. Often these things happen as a result of interior revelation. Just as often they produce interior revelation. In spite of the dramas created by the eclipses things are going well for you. On the 22nd you enter a yearly personal pleasure peak. Time to indulge in the sensory pleasures and to get the body and image the way you want it to be. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your 12th House and affects the spiritual life as we mentioned. But it also impacts on your image and self-concept. A redefinition is happening. This will go on for another few months. You can expect changes in your wardrobe and presentation. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th also seems strong on you. Aside from the spiritual changes it brings it also impacts on the love life. A current relationship will get tested. (Not only does it occur in your House of love but also eclipses your love planet, Uranus. Good relationships will weather the storm, but faulty ones can break up. Be more patient with the beloved and with friends that period. Since the Lord of the 9th House of travel is also impacted it is best not to schedule any unnecessary travel - not only is the Lord of your 9th eclipsed, but the other planets that rule travel - Jupiter and Mercury – are both retrograde. Finances are excellent this month, but better before the 26th than after.
With two eclipses happening this month there is much drama and change happening. But you seem OK. With your spiritual 12th House powerful all month - but especially after the 22nd – the message is “get right spiritually and all will be well”. The Grand Trine in Earth (and the general power in the Earth element) is good for you - a positive for health and finance. Both eclipses impact on your friendships. Some will get tested. Some could fall away. There will be life changing dramas in the lives of friends and often this changes the nature of the relationship. High tech equipment and software also get tested. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th, like all Solar Eclipses, brings spiritual changes - changes in attitudes, practice, teachings and teachers. Guru figures experience major personal changes. There are shakeups in charities or spiritual type organizations you’re involved with. Friends are having financial dramas. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 6th House and can bring job changes or changes in the conditions of work. If you employ others there can be employee turnover. Your health is good, so even a health scare is no more than that. However, you’re making dramatic changes to your diet and health regime. This eclipse could also bring psychological encounters with death. This is to bring you to a deeper understanding of it. Venus move into your sign on the 10th is a happy financial transit. Windfalls come to you. Opportunities likewise. You dress well and stylishly. People see you as a prosperous person. The money people in your life are kindly disposed to you.
You’re still in the midst of a yearly career peak until the 22nd and your efforts have created much change. Two eclipses this month affect the career and the people involved in it. The rules of the game are changing. Sometimes people actually change the career. But usually it shows taking a new approach to it. Health still needs watching until the 22nd but is improving day by day. Enhance the health, as always, through spiritual means and through foot massage. (Foot massage doesn’t just strengthen the feet, but the entire body as well). The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your 10th House of career and affects it, as was mentioned. But, like every Solar Eclipse it tests friendships and high-tech equipment. Sometimes equipment needs repair or replacements. High tech equipment is likely to be more “temperamental” that period. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 5th House and impacts on Lord of the 5th House. So, children and children figures in your life should take a more relaxed schedule that period. There are redefining themselves and changing the image that they present to the world. Basically, a healthy thing and it will go on for a few months. Mars is affected by this eclipse. Thus, your current relationship will get tested. The good ones tend to survive and get better, but the flawed ones are in danger. The beloved is probably more temperamental that period so be more patient with him or her. In addition to being eclipsed, your love planet is retrograde all month. So, avoid making important love decisions one way or another just yet.
Finances are starting to clarify this month as Jupiter, your Financial Planet, starts moving forward on the 10th. Prosperity is strong until the 22nd. It will be good afterwards too, but you will work harder for earnings than usual. Both of this month’s eclipses impact on your religious and educational life. For students there are changes and disruptions in the educational plans. There are shakeups in the place of worship and dramas in the lives of worship leaders. Your personal religion – your philosophical concepts - get tested this month. Some will have to be dropped, some will get modified. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your 9th House showing what we just mentioned - the 9th House rules higher education, religion and philosophy. But in addition, like every Solar Eclipse, it brings career changes (you get this twice a year and know how to handle it). There are dramas in the lives of people involved in your career too. There can be financial crisis in your place of worship.
Basically, a happy month, but travel plans should probably be delayed. Jupiter, the generic Lord of travel, is retrograde until the 10th. Mercury, the generic rules of short term travel, goes retrograde on the 26th. Your personal travel planet, the Sun, gets eclipsed on the 12th. If you must travel internationally try to schedule it after the 10th and before the 26th. Also avoid the Solar Eclipse period of the 12th. Both eclipses bring encounters with death - generally on a psychological level – sometimes you read of some grisly death in the papers and you feel personally impacted - sometimes someone close to you is having a surgery or confrontation. The point of it all is get you to a deeper (emotional) understanding of death. Fear of death is often the main cause for people not reaching their full potential. A good idea to take a reduced easy schedule during the eclipse periods. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th also impacts on the finances of the spouse, partner or current love - there is some shakeup there and changes need to be made. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th also brings financial changes to the spouse, partner or current love. This Lunar Eclipse impacts on cars, communication equipment, siblings, sibling figures and neighbors. They have personal dramas. A good idea to drive more carefully that period. Since Mars is impacted by this eclipse children and children figures are affected and have personal dramas. They should take a nice easy schedule that period.
You’re in a yearly love and social peak until the 22nd, and there’s much social activity happening, however two eclipses are going to test your current relationship and friendships (the friendships of the heart). If there are hidden repressed resentments, they will come out now to be resolved. Often relationships get tested due to no fault of your own - the beloved can be going through personal dramas and this complicates things. Health is very much improved over last month and by the 22nd actually gets good. You respond well to detox regimes this month. (Surgeries could be recommended to some of you brought on by the Solar Eclipse of the 12th. But detox should be explored first.) The Solar Eclipse of the 12th impacts on both the spouse, partner and current love in a personal way and also on his or her finances. Dramatic changes are happening there. There can be dramas with insurance or tax issues too. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your money house and impacts on your Financial Planet, Uranus. So, you also have to make important financial changes. Probably it will happen because of some disruption. Your financial thinking and strategy hasn’t been realistic as the events of the eclipse will show. Mars, your family planet, is impacted by this eclipse too. Thus, there are dramas at home and in the lives of family members. Tensions run high in the family. Often repairs are needed in the home with this kind of eclipse.
Over the past few months there has been a lot of behind the scenes career progress. This month - after the 10th - the progress becomes visible. But there is more work involved. The month ahead is very dramatic – both personally and in the love life. Two eclipses this month are shaking things up. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th tests the love life. It can bring dramas in the life of the current love. Also, it tends to bring up the dirty laundry in a relationship so that it can be cleansed, resolved and dealt with. This is probably not the end of your relationship – these eclipses happen twice a year - and you’ve got a lot of experience in dealing with them. But it does create crisis - which is a dangerous opportunity as the Chinese say. The resolving of dirty laundry can make the relationship better than before. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your 6th House of health and work. So, you’re making changes in your health regime. Probably there are job changes (and this can be in your present situation or with a new one) and changes in the conditions of work. The current love has spiritual changes. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your sign and impacts on Uranus, the Lord of your Horoscope. Take a nice easy schedule that period and avoid stressful kinds of activities. There is a need to re-define yourself - change your view of yourself - and this will go on for a few months. Generally, this is a healthy thing to do, but here you’re sort of forced into it by the events of eclipse. Since Mars is also impacted here drive more carefully. Cars and communication equipment can be temperamental. Siblings, sibling figures and neighbors are also affected and should take a more relaxed schedule. Health needs more watching from the 22nd onwards.
The month ahead is basically happy - though slower paced than usual. The eclipses throw some drama into the picture to make things more interesting. You’re still in a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 22nd - so be sure to have fun and enjoy your life. Both eclipses affect the children and children figures in your life. They should stay out of harm’s way those periods – let them watch movies or spend quiet time at home. The Solar Eclipse of the 12th occurs in your 5th House of children. It brings financial dramas and changes to them. Perhaps a financial crisis. It also shows job changes, changes of the conditions of work and disruptions in the work place. If you hire others there can be employee turnover. You will be, over the next few months, making major changes to the health regime. This too is a good thing. Our health needs change continuously and need periodic adjustment. The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 12th House of spirituality. This brings changes in your spiritual practice, teachings and perhaps teachers. The eclipsed planet, the Moon, rules the children and children figures in your life - bringing more personal drama and change. They will be redefining themselves over the next few months and the image they project to others will change. Your Financial Planet, Mars, is retrograde all month. Earnings are happening but more slowly and perhaps with delays. Moreover, it is impacted by this eclipse. So financial strategy and thinking needs to change. It hasn’t been realistic. Ultimately the changes will be good, but not so comfortable while they’re happening.
