If you’re cautious, you can end the month on the financial upside. But first you’ll need to get past the challenges presented by the July 1 Moon (solar eclipse), which will clash with Saturn and Pluto. It’s a reminder from the universe that you should live within your means and within a budget, even if that means going without some luxuries. It’s the way to meet your long-term goals. Try to escape for a week or a few days around July’s second Moon, in Leo on the 30th. The change of scenery will do you good and satisfy the spirit of adventure that comes alive as Mercury transits Leo, your solar ninth house, from the 2nd to the 27th. Substitute with a day trip to a nearby recreation area if that’s all the time you can manage. If you plan to attend a reunion, you could make a lucky connection and possibly a romantic one. Relationships will require a lot of time and energy this month as Mars advances in Gemini, your solar seventh house. However, it will be well worth it because you’ll gain information and knowledge by talking with people, and with a little gentle coaxing, they’ll tell you almost anything you want to know. But also remind yourself to have patience, because you’ll have a tendency to push others. The July 15 Moon in Capricorn, your solar second house, will give you a chance to recoup expenses triggered by the July 1 Moon. Don’t expect a huge influx of money, though. Rather, you’ll gain through careful management of your resources. Do that and you’ll feel you’re on a more solid financial footing.
