Happy July! Let's kick the month off with a little love advice.
Aries (March 21 to April 20): You will be spending more time at home this month and will happy to do so. But just know that your ruling planet, that impulsive warrior Mars will be making sure that you won't be spending that time alone. Nope, you will we seeing some big shake ups in your 7th House of Partners and one-on-one relationships that will make the start of this summer pretty darn hot. Since Mars will be moving on around July 25 you will want to hold on to anyone worth holding until then while letting anyone else who isn't floating your boat go. It is summer, after all.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21): Your most fulfilling relationships might not come from partners this month, but rather from family and friends who are supportive and make you happy. You can thank the Sun, Mercury and expansive and generous Jupiter for these benevolent energies too. And while you're being grateful remember to say 'thanks' to others who are helping you to find the love of your life (or at least helping to make a relationship that you are already involved in a much, much better one.
Gemini (May 22 to June 21): WHOA and WOWZA! You are going to have red hot and sizzling Mars taking up real estate in your 5th House of True Love this month making sure that your own love life is snapping, crackling and popping all over the place too. If you are single, it's time to mingle and if you are already involved then open your heart a little bit more and let someone really in. This is a prime time to find ardor and amour so put those red sheets on your bed and get busy. Literally.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22): You are ruled by the Moon, a planet known to elicit some pretty strong emotions, most especially when it is full. This month, on July 12, you have this planet lighting up your 7th House of Partners allowing you and a significant other to honestly and authentically express what it is that you expect and need from one another. Use the light of this silvery moon to create a golden month that could conceivably see you falling deeper and deeper in love.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): A New Moon during this month will also encourage a brand new you and boy oh boy will you ever like what you see. The July New Moon will lighten and brighten your 1st House of Personality and Self and bring you opportunities to improve your appearance too. You will be fighting off admirers and new fans will come crawling out of the woodwork now too. Look to the 19th forward to see some of these energies make you more attractive and appreciated than you could ever even believe. Nice.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): On July 19 and, then again, on July 24 Mercury the Messenger and lovely, loving Venus (in emotional Cancer) will both move into beautiful and harmonious trines with magical Neptune, a planet known for eliciting kindness and compassion. You can then expect to be the recipient of those last two things during those last two weeks especially since these planets will be linking to your 7th House of Partners. If you haven't yet met "the one" then these two weeks will put someone really special on your path.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): Someone from you past could make your current love life hot and heavy or, at very least, you might be visiting someone in July to will make this reunion one for the record books. Stop wishing you could take a trip down memory lane and just go ahead and make it happen. You'll have impulsive and energetic Mars in your sign this month so determination and high energy will help you hang out and hook up with whoever you want. Just be aware that Mars moves on on July 25 so you will have until then to get your groove on.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 22): Wow! Talk about experiencing some fireworks in July! Your love life could conceivably explode this month especially around July 18 when Venus helps to lighten and brighten your house of intimacy. Up until then, you are will be feeling far more sexy than you have in a really long time and will also experience a smorgasboard of sensual delights. You have until July 13 to pick and choose what will make your appetites happy and full so don't delay – energies like these don't come around every day.
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21): By the 18th of this month, The Sun, Mercury the Messenger and vivacious Venus will all have passed through your 8th House of Intimacy and they'll have done that with compassionate and sympathetic Cancer by their side. This cadre of caring planets will inspire and allow you opportunities to meet new and nurturing people, or, at the very least, will show you how very much you are appreciated by the relationships already touching your life. Make yourself available to all of those that love and be sure to return the favor. You'll be oh so glad that you did.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 20): This month holds sort of double edged sword of energies for you what with the Sun, Mercury the Messenger and loving Venus all in some sort of pissing match with powerful Pluto on July 4, July 22 and July 28 respectively. You must watch the tendency to judge others during these days, especially if you don't want them judging you. Stay away from manipulative people who don't have your best interests at heart, and open your heart to the ones who are loyal, compassionate and kind. You will have an especially love-ly day on July 13 so circle that on your calendar and keep a low profile on those other highly explosive days.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19): This is more a month that deals with your relationship with you than with others. You could experience an epiphany during July that will show you just how far removed from an active social life you are as you work and work and, then, work some more. It's time now to assess your calendar and your schedule and reduce some of this work related stress so you can get out and pursue the people, places and things that will make you feel happy and fulfilled.
Pisces (February 20 to March 20): You will enjoy a Full Moon rising in your 11th House of Hopes and Dreams on July 12 and one of those hopes and dreams is to get closer with someone special in your life, then you're going to be in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. This significant relationship could be taking up quite a bit of your time in attention in July but you won't mind in the least. Enjoy the appreciation, admiration and, yes, even all the attention. You deserve it.
