21 March – 19 April
Love is looking up, darling Aries. The Sun defrosts your independence, as you admit that needing someone isn’t all that bad. Yes, you can do life on your own, and even if you have a partner, chances are that you rule the roost. Still, you’re not an island. This month, Le Soleil helps you realise you’re not alone. Not only that, but you learn that depending on someone isn’t a sign of weakness. Instead, it shows that you’re capable of trust and intimacy. Parent Rams share a special bonding activity or experience with one of their children in the second half of July. Towards month’s end, Jupiter’s retrograde reevaluates your hopes and wishes for the future. Are you on track? Mars’ blast into your health zone encourages you to clean up your well-being act. Remember to run your own race – a healthy body looks different on everybody.

Mid-month, Mercury brings news of a sensitive nature. The mysterious information concerns someone close, like a family member or bestie. Play your part by being supportive and understanding, Taurus. As one of the most loyal signs of the zodiac, this should be a breeze for you. Nevertheless, an attention-seeker may stir up trouble by dropping little hints when they should really maintain a respectful silence. If you feel strongly enough, speak up. After July 22nd, Venus sweetens your love zone. Single Bulls meet someone that rocks their world. While couples see eye-to-eye on a matter that is of great mutual benefit. In this case, two heads are better than one, so put your tandem thinking caps on!

Venus’ smile on the Moon’s Node brings a love shift. This celestial connection has karmic undertones, so provided you’ve learnt from past mistakes, you’ll be first in line to reap relationship rewards. What have previous lovers taught you, Gemini? More often than not, soul mates teach one vital lesson; self-love. For singles, this is about attracting a potential partner that is willing to step up. Moneywise, it’s all systems go when clever Mercury’s brilliant scheme grows your money tree. A side hustle that increases your earnings as well as makes your heart sing is your best bet. If you love what you do, your work will be more bearable, and you’re more likely to be super successful too. July’s full Moon cures a holiday hiccup with a healthy dose of patience.
POWER DATE: July 6th
21 June – 22 July
A cosmic tug-of-war in your money zones sees you digging in your heels. Family and compassion sit at the top of your priority list, but the person on the other end of the rope should know you’re more than a sentimental softie. You’re also a cardinal sign with a quiet inner strength. When you want to, your crab pinchers can nip, especially if someone threatens you, your loved ones or your financial security. Mercury sees you signing documentation, negotiating a contract or consolidating a verbal agreement. Make sure you take your time to read the fine print, though. Don’t buckle under pressure just because you want it all over with. The new Moon supports fresh beginnings, which are always best when loss ends from the past have been tied up properly.
POWER DATE: July 10th and 12th

Happy birthday, gorgeous Leo! The Sun puts you centre stage for the next four weeks, from July 23rd. This month’s new Moon encourages you to make a bold decision.

Tap into your inner queen to land the job, even if you have to act more confident in your abilities than you are. Sometimes, a girl’s gotta fake it until she makes it! Also, Venus graces your cash zone on July 22nd, increasing financial flow. Enjoy a portion of the surplus but stick to your budget, put a tidy sum away for a rainy day, and then buy yourself a treat.

Your mental and emotional health is calling out for TLC, Virgo. But suppose you’re not comfortable trusting your deepest darkest secrets to a friend or family member, or you can’t afford to see a professional. In that case, the stars suggest becoming your own best friend. Take the pressure off yourself and stop beating yourself up. In other words, you have the cosmos’ permission to be a little damn selfish! And here’s the great news… Venus enters your sign on July 22nd, promising a glow-up of epic proportions. Book a day of pampering, get your hair done, and do whatever rocks your beauty boat – you’ll feel uber gorgeous. Remember that Venus is the love planet, so prepare to be wined, dined and romanced.

Back yourself 100% and know your worth. As well as greater responsibility, this opportunity lines your pockets with more cash – just don’t spend it on a whim. By mid-month, Venus tempts you to splurge on an extravagant purchase that you could probably do without. If you’re unsure, sleep on it before maxing out your credit card. Someone shares a slice of juicy gossip that is of a sensitive nature, so seal your lips. But if you’re the one bursting to share a secret, be selective about who you confide in. Jupiter’s retrograde causes a love snag. This isn’t a step back but rather an opportunity to reflect on your romantic needs.

20 January – 18 February
July’s full Moon makes its annual stopover in your sign, Aquarius. La Luna begs you to be true to who you are rather than moulding yourself to someone else’s expectations. There’s no happiness in trying to be someone you’re not. A lack of confidence can often be to blame for pulling you down instead of elevating your vibe. Then you start holding yourself back in fear of rejection, looking silly or not being good enough. But, that’s rubbish, and you know it. Your mission is to sparkle like a damn diamond, and don’t let anybody dull your shine! On July 23rd, the Sun thaws out a frosty business interaction. A boisterous person wants to collaborate or sign you up for the deal-of-a-lifetime. It’s a good match, provided you follow your gut instincts.
