July is an overall easygoing month with the exception of continuing periodic challenges in career and personal relationships. Much of this will occur within the first two weeks of July, when you’ll be stretched thin. Keep your cool, believe in yourself, and use your people skills when potentially disruptive change occurs in your workplace. Family life is all you could wish for under the July 15 Moon (lunar eclipse) in Capricorn, your solar fourth house. If you can manage a few days off, stay home, enjoy family time, and tackle some of the many projects on your household to-do list. This is also good timing if you want to entertain friends at a casual get- together. Friendship is in the July spotlight as Mercury transits Leo, your solar eleventh house, from the 2nd to the 27th. The energy keeps flowing into August, thanks to the July 30 Moon (the second one this month) in the same sign. This is your summer ideal because you’ll be a popular guest at social events where you can widen your circle. Also consider getting involved in an organization that supports a good cause. Career success is in the forecast as the July 1 Moon (solar eclipse) in Cancer illuminates your solar tenth house. Your atten- tion-getting power also gets a boost from Venus in the same sign from the 4th to the 27 th, and this can have you among the favored few. But you’ll need to be alert and aware of what’s happening around you because competition for a step up will be stiff.
