During the first two weeks of July, you’ll question why you’ve main- tained a friendship or romantic relationship that should have ended long before now. You’ll again realize that your values and financial mindset differ to the point that nothing is likely to change. Take action when the July 1 Moon (solar eclipse) brings these matters to a head. And even though you’ll have difficulty considering the possibility, be sure that no one, even someone close to you, has tampered with your finances. Check your credit report. July begins and ends with lightspots. Venus in your sign through the 3rd boosts your powers of attraction and gives you extra charm. At month’s end, Mercury advances into Virgo, your solar fourth house, on the 28th, making home the coziest place to be that weekend. Be lazy or invite a few friends in for a casual get-together. A second Moon, in Leo, your solar third house, on the 30th, steps up the pace of daily life and puts you in touch with many people, one of whom will be a lucky charm. With Mercury in the same sign from the 2nd to the 27th, it’s a great time to get better acquainted with neighbors, spend time with relatives, and join in a community or neighborhood activity that can bring new people into your orbit. The July 15 Moon in Capricorn shines brightly in your solar eighth house of money. Although a raise is possible for you (or your partner), the lunar energy is more likely to encourage you to turn your attention to budgeting and financial planning in order to make the most of your resources.
