Your astrology predictions+ summer monthly horoscope for July 2018 for each zodiac sign.

It's July already! Whew, and it's already sweltering hot this summer! 

There are two major eclipse events this month one taking place in the north node and the other in the south node. There are gains and losses, and with Mercury going in retrograde before the end of the month, communication becomes more complicated, but action taken early in the month can helps smooth things along.

This month's eclipse season will empower each zodiac sign's house and monthly horoscope in a different way and can last anywhere from 3-6 months it takes place. I've shared what that means for your zodiac sign in your horoscope for July below.

To prepare, I've created a roadmap of the planets and their major movements through the zodiac Houses in astrology for the entire month. Here's what's happening in the universe that affects your monthly horoscope and zodiac sign and what this month's planetary changes are for July 2018:

(Note: These apply to everyone, however, if one of the planets is your planetary ruler it will have more of an effect on you.)

Monthly Transit and planetary changes for the summer month of July:

The Sun is in Cancer, then on July 22nd it transits the sign of Leo:

The Sun brings our attention to home and family, first, then it turns attention to ourselves with play, creativity, childhood, and dreams. The focus becomes loyalty and honesty. Ever try to get a child to lie to you? They are hard pressed to do so. 

While in the latter stages of Cancer, things become more intentional as the stage at home gets set for brighter and bigger things. Cancerians pride themselves on organized and well-kept spaces. They love harmony, sacred space and are hard working to get those things into their home life, from car to the top drawer of their desk at work. It's a process but perfect when followed by Leo season. Once the home is squared away, you can feel more secure about going out and playing for a while without feeling guilty.

On July 2nd, there's a grand trine in the element of water, between the Sun in Cancer, Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. So, this is a day to get in touch with your emotions and use that to pursue your dreams and manifesting them. 

The waning Full Moon:

The Moon travels from Aquarius to Sagittarius and it's a spiritual growth season for many zodiac signs. From discovery your own personal sense of self to determining what to do with that information, your thought life can take on many things and use what you learn in a powerful way.

A New Moon partial solar eclipse takes place in Cancer on July 12th. 

This eclipse happens in the north node and lasts for 6 months, and it symbolizes the authority and powers sending messages to be more loving and kind in homelands. For all zodiac signs, on a smaller scale, this is also a time to make small changes that make home life more sensible and lovely to the external world. For example, painting the outside of your home with a cheerful color. Gardening, buying new plants, clearing closets and releasing what clutters your space and making a donation to charitable organizations will be right on time for this energy download.

First quarter Moon takes place on July 19th in the sign of Libra. 

We are more open and prepared emotionally and physically to invite new people into our world. Making connections at work and in the dating world may be slightly challenging but where things do come together, kismet!

Full Moon in July 27th with a total lunar eclipse on the south Node in the sign of Aquarius and this energy lasts for 6 months.

A Full Moon total lunar eclipse, so the energy of the Moon is blocked. This is about letting go of things that have caused you losses, giving all zodiac signs permission to open the door and begin again, taking matters into your own hands and focusing on small matters. Releasing old baggage from failed relationships, unmet expectations and inviting new energy into our lives in the area of relationships comes around again. These new friendships and allies are formative in that there's likely to be a singular common element that you've met to accomplish as a team during this season of life. 

Mercury and Venus are in the zodiac sign, Leo.

Oh, Leo, why do you have to be so extra? While in the sign of Leo, all zodiac signs find their conversations and outlook to be geared towards something bigger than life in some way. The process of growth leans towards instilling a sense of authority and ownership in the world around you in creative ways. Leo is bold and courageous and so communication is more pronounced at this time. 

Mercury involves communication — from cell phone usage, text messages, emails, letters, both verbal and body language, even the way that you communicate with yourself is symbolized by Mercury. It includes anything and everything that communication lines travel down from your internet provider to your mobile plan! On the 5th of July, a square forms between Mercury and the Sun where ideas come into focus and support any changes you are ready to make.

Mercury goes retrograde on July 26th.  Loyalty, it's personal now. Pride, it's self-esteem driven. Motived, it's about your dreams and wants, not someone else's. But as much as you may think that a lion that pounces, remember, Leos calculate their moves. And, this July, so will you when pursuing the things that you want in life that are beautiful, meaningful, and precious to your inner spirit.

Uranus is in the sign of Taurus:

Uranus remains in the sign of Taurus and continues to make changes more pronounced in the areas of finance, home, and while in Cancer season, you are more frugal with spending. Investments of self, the home and into real estate are still good at this time. After July 22nd, be careful with overspending, impulse purchases and things that are flashy. Instead, look for quality, integrity, and partner with brands that you feel you can give your loyalty and receive the same in turn.

Neptune is Rx in Pisces:

Neptune retrograde is the right time to be realistic with your dreams. What is in your head and mind that you can see you can achieve but not without a game plan. Turn creative thinking into objects that help you to focus and become intentional. Dream boards, motivational quotes, mastermind groups, and zenlike projects that return your energy and help you to channel the you that you're becoming are positive and fruitful.

Saturn is Rx in Capricorn:

Saturn removes the fluff of things, and when in the sign of Capricorn, elements of the 10th House apply. Whatever area that Capricorn manifests in your personal chart, you'll feel it at work, with your personal reputation, social status, and career goals included.

For example, if you're working on new fitness goals, people at work will notice your determination and commitment to self-improvement and this could lead to favor with the boss and an improved position in another area of the workplace.

If you're being a good parent and focusing on matters in the home, someone at work might see the effort you are putting in and without realizing it, you are acting as a role model and inspiring others to be their best self. Capricorn is a cardinal leader sign, so this is a wonderful time for all zodiac signs with long-term results. 

Mars is Rx in the sign of Aquarius:

Aquarius is associated with the 11th House, and it's a zodiac sign that isn't super frivolous. Aquarius is athletic, it's free thinking and forward thinking. Capable of quieting your own mind and focusing on things that need to get done, this month, you can have the endurance you need to be true to your self, and your goals. You might not be as committed to the same path that everyone else is taking. Innovative thinking may come to you in an inspirational flash. With Mars Rx in the sign of Aquarius, your pursuit of personal happiness can be more assertive, and contagious! Consider the dynamic energy of famous Aquarian, Oprah Winfrey. 

Pluto and Saturn are Rx in Capricorn:


What a combination. Pluto brings transformation and Saturn brings stability. The retrograde season is a return to things that have loose ends and unfinished business. With Pluto, these things have psychic and spiritual implications. Soulmates, karmic balancing, and energy that is negative and still carried into this new phase of life can't last. So, what does Saturn do when they come up with Plutonian rapidity, they diminish and lose their harmfulness, once and for all.

Jupiter is Rx in Scorpio until July 10th:

Jupiter loves to grow things, and passion is held back slightly as it embers for more. After July 10th, when Jupiter moves into the sign of Sagittarius, the philosophy of growth takes on new meaning. Rather than be guided by gut intuition, the mind and experience begin to become your new teachers. 

Here is your monthly horoscope predictions + tarot card and power days for the summer month of July 2018 for all zodiac and star signs in astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


POWER CRYSTAL: Citrine or garnet

POWER DAYS: 1-2, 5-7, 10-11, 14-15, 23-24, 28-29

Tarot Card: Death

The 2 eclipses affect your 5th, 10th, 11th Houses

Aries, this month you can get what you want and find it in the most unusual places. You're going to need to know how to balance your time and your efforts. With energy coming into your 5th house, play is wanted but you are still in building mode. This month you have a peak with meeting the right people and making connections that help you to accomplish your goals but also create friendships with a specific life purpose in mind. 

You will need to find a way to delegate the things you really don't have time to do elsewhere and focus on exactly what you want and need to do to feel balanced. Also, around the July 12-13th, if you have a therapist or life coach, use those services to help you process the insightful ideas and feelings that come that hold you back. The last month with the Sun in Cancer really turned your intentions towards home (again) but with the Sun shifting into Leo, you will want to do both — and, of course, get credit for it

The 2 eclipses affect your 4th, 9th, 10th Houses

Taurus, this month focus on all the thing that you love. You may face some challenges between home life and business. This month, you may have some travel plans you'll need to make related to work or family and there's a push and pull. There's significant focus on career and opportunity to build your career, so compartmentalize. Taking a bulk approach to how you spend your time, for example, take mini vacations or small respites and use that time to spend with family, and then use the majority of your time devoted to work. This way you aren't missing out on building what you ultimately want your family to benefit from — financial security.

You may be more outgoing and forthright with your wants and needs are, and in your love life, this could be score big points with a new person you are dating or with a partner that you are recommitting to.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)



POWER DAYS: 5-7, 10-11, 14-15, 18-19, 23-24

The 2 eclipses affect your 1st, 6th, 7th Houses

Leo, it's all about you this month. It's an ideal time for you to take on something that are near and dear to your heart: love of self and love and others. You may find that you are able to multi-task more than usual, and caring for others, especially dating new people, doesn't conflict with your personal needs. If you're looking to make significant changes in your life, you can do it. If you're looking to simply improve your circumstances, surroundings, and physical well-being, the options are there for you, particularly with becoming healthier. Partnerships can become more like mirrors and help you to see things within yourself that you had planned to change anyway, but now have found a way to do it at your own pace.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)



POWER DAYS: 8-9, 12-13, 16-17, 20-22, 25-27, 30-31

Tarot Card: The Chariot

The 2 eclipses affect your 12th, 5th, 6th Houses

Virgo, things change for you in the area of spirituality, happiness and health. You may find that you are ready to face the past with a fresh take on life and it not only helps you to put things to rest that may have broken your heart (or even your spirit) but gives you the impetus to try new things and hit the replay button again. You've been through a bit of trials and tribulations this year and the new perspective is preparing to breath fresh air into your love life. You could meet someone new during this month or find your vulnerability less threatening.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)



POWER DAYS: 1-2, 10-11, 14-15, 18-19, 23-24, 28-29

Tarot Card: The Lover 

The 2 eclipses affect your 4th, 5th, 11th Houses

Libra, home and heart collide. This change takes place in the south node which can signify loss; however, this month, some of these losses actually free you up to enjoy things more and to embrace pleasures you've been holding of on for the sake of obligations to partnerships or perhaps work related activities.

During this time, it will be a busy season in life where friends, family, and personal expression come out more in the forefront and less time is spent participating solitary activities.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)



POWER DAYS: 3-4, 12-13, 16-17, 20-22, 25-27, 30-31

Tarot Card: Death

The 2 eclipses affect your 2nd, 3rd, 9th

Scorpio, things center around money make, talk about money, and perhaps spending for the sake of travel. You may have to spend to get. Your spending isn't limited to what you pay out in cash but perhaps it can be in forms of intangibles: time, energy and efforts. Social media, trends, and perhaps things associated with the 3rd house influence your moves this, particularly when Mercury goes retrograde and you may feel the need to scale back a bit to catch up on what you've done earlier this month.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)



POWER DAYS: 1-2, 5-7, 14-15, 18-19, 23-24, 28-29

Tarot Card: The Hanged Man

The 2 eclipses affect your 2nd, 3rd, 9th

Sagittarius, this can be a transformative month for you in the area of money but you will need to hustle a bit in order to square away what you've been working so hard to build earlier this year. You may be relocating offices, or changing locations in order to meet new people. If you're in the sales or marketing business, this may mean more meetings in public places such as networking groups or things of the sort.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)



POWER DAYS: 3-4, 8-9, 16-17, 20-22, 25-27, 30-31

Tarot Card: The Hermit

The 2 eclipses affect your 1st, 2nd, 8th Houses

Capricorn, the way that you view yourself and the way it affects your career and perhaps even the way that others perceive you as someone trustworthy to as well. So, you'll want to pay attention to how you style it up this month. It is summer and you may be tempted to parse down a bit and be in summer mode, but this may not be the right time. While others are laying back a bit to relax and unwind, this is still a building time. You never know who you may meet while out and away from work that can boost your career or introduce you to the right people at the right time.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

POWER COLOR: Blue-green


POWER DAYS:  1-2, 5-7, 10-11, 18-19, 23-24, 28-29

Tarot Card: Strength

The 2 eclipses affect your 1st, 7th, 12th

Aquarius, your love life, and your personal life seem to be entering a growth spurt and it's going to be a dance that you won't want to miss out on. You may find that you are growing exponentially from the inside out due to the love of another person that you either already know or will meet. Not only does this put a bit more bounce in your step but it also takes this self-esteem boost to a new level for you in ways you hadn't anticipated since the end of last year when joy was super pronounced.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)


POWER CRYSTAL: Chrysocolla

POWER DAYS: 3-4, 8-9, 12-13, 20-22, 25-27, 30-31

Tarot Card: The Sun

The 2 eclipses affect your 6th, 11th, 12th Houses

Pisces, pay attention to your health particularly the foods you eat, the types of people you associate with during this month as you could make some intriguing connections that aren't exactly here for the long haul. During this time of season, you may be into moving things around more as far as the circles you like to hang out with. Perhaps you'll change locations for where you work out, shop and even try to do things a bit more sociably. As you learn how to run in new circles, your past spiritual lessons will be put to the test in order to show you've mastered them.
