July’s few challenges are centered around the July 1 Moon (solar eclipse) in your sign. This means they don’t have to be challenges at all because the outcome depends upon your actions and reactions. Bottom line: you’re in charge. You can choose to let everyday frustrations and stressors affect family life, close relationships, and your career, or not. This also applies to your reaction to events in these sectors. Look for growth and learning opportunities. Once past the first two weeks of July, you can take full advantage of the fresh energy that accompanies the July 1 solar eclipse in Cancer. Because it represents the symbolic start of your new solar year, now is the time to set personal goals for the next twelve months. Be sure to reflect upon the events of early July and to incorporate them in your list. Need a favor? Ask someone close to you the week of the July 15 Moon in Capricorn, your solar seventh house. People will be responsive and supportive of you and your efforts, and this is a particularly nice influence for ongoing romantic and business partnerships because you’ll be sensitive to each other’s feelings and thoughts. If you can refrain from spending, the July 30 Moon in Leo, your solar second house, could add a little more to your bank account. A raise is possible at almost any time this month, with Mercury in Leo through the 28th, the date Venus enters the same sign. Hang on to your money rather than let the Moon trigger a spending spree during the following two weeks.
