You will burn with love this summer!
Welcome to YourTango's monthly love horoscope column from astrologer Ellen Whitehurst! Look up your astrological sign to see what kind of love and romance July is bringing your way. Please note: the predictions provided here follow Western astrological dates.
You're going to absolutely LOVE this month, Aries! Venus, the goddess of love, will set off for Leo on Independence Day, apropos since there will be tons of fireworks happening for you. Mercury will follow Venus on July 13, followed by the sizzling summer Sun on July 22 — a fiery and fun-loving group of days filled with entertaining energies lighting up your 5th House of True Love and Passion, Playmates and Recreation, too. There is absolutely no doubt that you'll enjoy all the attention, while also feeling especially attractive. If you got ‘em, light them. Or, simply let the Universe do that for you.
This will be one of the most passionate months of this year for you, so plan to be held and caressed, canoodling with a special someone who really lights your fire. You'll have sexy Mars in Scorpio lighting up Scorpio in your 7th House of Partners and One-On-One relationships, while generous and expansive Jupiter will take up real estate in your 5th House of True Love. With a slew of Cancer related planets also planning to make contact while connecting with romantic Neptune, your smile will go from ear to ear — all while someone is whispering sweet nothings in them.
You will host charming and loving Venus in Leo starting on the 11th of this month while they set up shop in your 3rd House of Communications (and siblings, too). With all of these energies making you more magnetic than usual, it’s not hard to see how every word you say could turn into an irresistible invitation for anyone interested to get to know you better. The Sun, Mercury and Venus will also all be hosting mid-month with you as the super star on the proverbial dance floor. Good thing then that recreation will be at the top of your personal Wish List, since that same thing — as well as a healthy dose of romance — will make this one hot, hot, hot month.
You will host lovely and loving Venus, the sizzling Sun and chatty Mercury in your home and family-loving sign for most of the month so it might be time for some new summer accessories to wear to some wonderful weekends at your place. This is the month to make amends with loved ones right before you invite them to enjoy a margarita (or two) at your pad. Enjoy these days that will be filled with Sun and fun as you kick back and love your life this month!
You could be listening to the same old/same old argument about the amount of time you spend away from home, particularly dealing with this school of thought on July 7. Spend some time reflecting and if you think that ‘they’ might have a valid point, then maybe you should get out your calendar and schedule them in some quality time — and attention — with you. Think of it this way, your friends love and miss you and only want to see if you can spare some time for them while you're out attracting the entire world to you. Your social life is revving up now, so it might be a bit hard to find the time you need to have some friendly fun, but practical Saturn will be hanging out in your 5th House of True Love, so all of those playmates vying for your time will bring the fun — and, quite possibly the passion and romance, too.
July 7 could be a tense or testy time with you and some friends who think that you're spending too much time with your significant other and not enough with them. It might be time to practice your juggling and pull off a balancing act that makes everyone happy — but not before you experience a few fireworks (apropos for this month, eh?). It appears that loving Venus, Mercury the Messenger and a sizzling Sun will all get involved with unpredictable Uranus and powerful Pluto joining the fray, too. Just remember to count to 10 before losing your cool, especially since charming Venus will take up real estate in your 11th House of Friends until July 11. After that date, the Universe gives you full permission to lose your stuff once you count to 11, but do remember that these are your friends and that is exactly why they miss you so much.
Mercury the Messenger will hang out and hook up with loving and charming Venus on July 16 since they'll both be in passionate Leo at the time. Rolling between the sheets and having some sexy pillow talk will be the order of the month. But it gets even better. The Sun will join them all on July 22 and since he shines bigger than bright when in Leo, you can expect to be the apple of someone’s eye — and trust me when I tell you, they can’t wait to take a bite. On July 11, Venus will make her way into your 11th House for Friends and Group, and with this dramatic energy lighting up your life, you can also count on being the star of you’re your own personal show with an audience of friends who find you attractive cheering on your every move.
Generous and beneficent Jupiter will take up real estate in your 11th House of Groups and Friends, making sure your social life will keep you front and center all month. If you're single, you could meet someone now who is well rounded and generally right up your alley. You will probably cross paths on July 8 or 9 when whoever catches your attention holds it fast and tight. If you are already attached, it will be a prime time to have your friends and family over for a barbeque. Your life is about to get spicy and hot, hot, hot as well!
Your ruling planet, the oh-so generous and expansive Jupiter, has a delightful month in store for you. The fun begins early on when July 1 will see Jupiter pass out a nice and juicy sextile to loving goddess Venus as she passes out a hunk of burning love to you. Although you may not meet your soulmate right away, you will certainly feel the love coming to you from friends and family. Early on in July, your idea of a great time will be hanging out at home with those same loved ones, sitting around the pool with them or even just enjoying a quiet cook out. The Sun, Mercury and Venus will all pass through homebody Cancer now, prompting you to slow down and take a breath. Believe me, once the 12th comes rolling around, your social calendar will rev back up again, so take the time to recharge when you can!
The New Moon that rises on July 4 will light up your 7th House of Partners and One-To-One relationships. That means that if you are single, pay attention to anyone you run into who turns your head and strikes your fancy. Just know that you may not actually get together until after the Full Moon of July 18. Then again, you were always more turned on by potential partners who make you wait for all the deliciousness they will bring to your personal party. In fact, a parade of planets will be marching through that same 7th House with each and every one of them intent on keep you occupied with this nice new significant other. If you're already attached, your beloved may see you now with new eyes — the kind that wear rose colored glasses.
If you have been seeing a special someone for some time now, it might just be time to take them out and about to meet your family and your friends. It’s time to take advantage of the wonderful and peaceful trine that loving Venus will form with Saturn on July 20, which will link your 7th House of Partners with your 11th House of Groups and Friends. This is the stuff that dreams and life-long friendships are made of. The Sun, Venus and Mercury will pass through Cancer, making this a family-oriented month, as well, especially around July 8th when staying home with family and friends will feel quite fulfilling. Fireworks, fun and fulfillment — what more could you ask for in July?
What a wonderful month to be you! Lovely and loving Venus will spend time lighting up your 5th House of True Love and Passion and create explosions like fireworks in the sky. As if that weren’t enough, Jupiter, the Santa Claus of planets, will be continuing on his path through your 7th House of Partners and One-On-One Relationships. Whether you're single and ready to mingle or already attached, expect an extravaganza of electric romantic energies. The New Moon that rises on July 4 could even bring an announcement of epic (and great!) proportions. This month was made for you, so get ready to express your wants and needs and get the majority of them met for you, too. WOO HOO!
