July 2020 starts with a splendid conjunction between Venus and Jupiter, which could be very lucky for some, but encourage others to over-indulge! Then several significant aspects throughout the rest of the month could make for sudden and profound changes in the lives of many of us.
First Saturn and Pluto combine to cause upsets and changes, then Jupiter and Pluto give you the additional energy to cope with this. And in the latter half of the month, Saturn and Uranus align to give us a strenuous, nerve-wracking few days followed by Jupiter and Uranus combining to produce a period of sudden opportunities or impulsive action! To see what this all means for your sign, read on…
# ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 20)
Mars, your ruler, continues its journey through Taurus, the area of your chart connected with your possessions and your income and during this lengthy period, this is where much of your energy is likely to be expended.
What you own assumes a greater importance to you and you will fight to keep what you feel is rightfully yours. But partnerships are also important to you at the moment and it is in this area of your chart that the beneficial meeting of Venus and Jupiter occurs at the beginning of july 2020, ensuring that all your close relationships are at their most pleasant and happy.
In the second half of the month, however, Jupiter first aligns with Pluto, indicating that you are likely to be putting much energy into achieving greater freedom for yourself. It then makes a tense aspect to Uranus and you could experience a sudden opportunity that creates a profound change in your life before the month is out.
# TAURUS (Apr. 20 – May 21)
As Mars continues in your sign you may prefer to be left alone to get on with your own projects and because of your preoccupation with what needs to be done, you could be somewhat insensitive to the needs of others.
But with Venus, your ruler, meeting with Jupiter in Libra, both work relationships and health matters should benefit. During the second week of the month, however, Venus moves on into Scorpio and all your close relationships benefit from your amiability and willingness to compromise.
At the same time, however, an alignment between Saturn and Pluto could produce difficulties within your home and family, or with jointly owned property and shared resources. And during the third week, when Saturn aspects Uranus, you may have to cope with difficult new circumstances in the home .
# GEMINI (May 21 – Jun. 21)
Mercury, your ruler, moves out of Leo, fairly rushes through Virgo and ends the month in Libra, meaning that for you, for most of the month, it is your home life which is the focus of your attention.
The New Moon here on the 3rd suggests that new beginnings are possible and it is a very good time for you to discuss your plans and options with your family or those with whom you share your home.
During the second week of the month, however, a difficult aspect between Saturn and Pluto indicates that you may be driven to make changes where a partner or a close relationship is concerned, which will not be easy.
In the third week, Jupiter aligns with Pluto, pushing you further in this direction and giving you the impetus to gain greater freedom for yourself. And finally, not only the Full Moon, but also Jupiter, aspecting Uranus, implies that you can expect a sudden opportunity where your career or public image is concerned which could prove fortunate. Just be careful that in your quest for greater freedom, you consider your options first and you don’t act too impulsively!
# CANCER (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22)
Your social life will have a buzz to it for most of the month and the New Moon in Virgo suggests that you could find yourself in a new locality or spending time with new friends.
Venus, meeting with Jupiter in Libra, continues to make your home a very pleasant place to be, but can also encourage excess, so be careful you don’t overspend on re-decorating or indulging the family!
It won’t help that Saturn, restricting your finances somewhat, makes a tense angle to Pluto in the second week of the month, possibly creating even further need to curb expenses or make changes to your budget.
Balancing the accounts could become even more nerve-wracking in the third week of july when Saturn makes an uncomfortable alignment with Uranus.
A possible solution may come to you before the month is out, however, when Jupiter aligns with Uranus and sudden change is offered to you, with the Full Moon in Pisces shining its light on the route you need to take.
# LEO (Jul. 22 – Aug. 22)
This is not going to be an easy month for you, although you will see more clearly your way forward by its close. Although Venus and Jupiter continue to make your social life very pleasant, with Saturn in your sign your current responsibilities are likely to be heavy.
And in the second week, when Saturn makes a tense aspect to Pluto, both circumstances and people around you combine to frustrate you, in some way preventing you from accomplishing what you want to do.
Then, in the third week, when Saturn aligns with Uranus, you are likely to find it difficult to adapt to new circumstances, although the hard work you put in now could certainly be to your long-term advantage.
And finally, with Jupiter in aspect to Uranus just after the Full Moon, expect a sudden opportunity to appear that can have a profound effect on your life.
# VIRGO (Aug. 22 – Sept. 22)
The New Moon in your sign on the 3rd enables you to make a new start or turn over a new leaf and with both the Sun and Mercury, your ruler, in your sign for most of the month, you are once again at the top of your form, ready to share your views and expecting to be listened to!
And financially, the meeting between Venus and Jupiter at the beginning of the month indicates good fortune, although you will have to resist the urge to spend. A difficult aspect between Saturn and Pluto in the second week of the month, however, suggests that changes are occurring within your home or family which are beyond your control.
Or it could be that you want to make changes and are frustrated in this by others. In any case, Jupiter combines with Pluto after that, to give you both the energy and the opportunity to begin to make the changes you want to make.
Even so, when Saturn aspects Uranus in the third week, there is likely to be conflict in partnership matters, or where a close relationship is concerned, although the Full Moon here on the july 18th suggests that a resolution to any problems between you is possible.
And finally, the difficult aspect between Jupiter and Uranus again highlights the tension in financial and partnership matters and could mean the occurrence of a sudden opportunity that changes your life.
# LIBRA (Sept. 22 – Oct. 22)
Venus, your ruler, meets Jupiter in your sign at the beginning of the month, indicating a very pleasant interlude, although you should guard against going to excess in anything.
In the second week, Venus moves into Scorpio, which has the effect of drawing possessions and income to you, but can also make the urge to acquire possessions simply for the joy of owning them too hard to resist.
Then, as Jupiter aligns with Pluto in the second half of the month, it signifies a time when you should grab the opportunities to make the changes in your life which will give you the freedom you need.
The Full Moon on the july 18th, 2018 heralds a resolution to a workplace or health issue and finally, Jupiter makes a tense aspect to Uranus and your urge for freedom becomes overwhelming. If you can resist the urge to act impulsively and make your plans carefully, then you will succeed in realizing your dreams.
# SCORPIO (Oct. 22 – Nov. 21)
Venus moves into your sign on the 11th, so the effect of having Mars, your co-ruler, in the area of your chart connected with partnerships, which creates tension between you, is mitigated by your amiability and your desire to compromise.
The second week of the month, however, can be a difficult time for you where your career or your financial position is concerned. Saturn makes a tense aspect to Pluto, your ruler, and you feel blocked in your need to make changes in your life, either by circumstances or by other people. Consequently, the changes you have to make in the way in which you earn your income may not be of your choosing.
And later in the month, when Saturn forms a difficult aspect to Uranus, you may find it hard to adapt to the new circumstances which are forced upon you. Whilst it may be tough going, be reassured that the changes could be to your long-term advantage.
# SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21 – Dec. 21)
july 2018 starts with Venus and Jupiter combining in Libra and all your meetings, with friends, acquaintances or business colleagues are imbued with warmth and affection.
And although the New Moon at the beginning of the month allows you to make a new start where either your career or your public image is concerned, aspects to Pluto in your sign suggest that july is not going to be the easiest of times for you.
In the second week, Saturn combines with Pluto and finds you frustrated because you seem to be prevented by circumstances, or by others, from making the changes you want to make.
Matters should improve by the third week when Jupiter, your ruler, aspects Pluto and you have the energy you need to start making those changes. And then, towards the end of july 2018, the Full Moon in Pisces, together with an alignment between Jupiter and Uranus, makes for sudden opportunities that could change your life for the better.
# CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 – Jan. 20)
The meeting of Venus and Jupiter in Libra at the beginning of the month occurs in the sector of your chart connected with your career, professional life or public persona and never have you been held in such high regard nor has your reputation been better.
In the second week of the month, however, an aspect between Saturn, your ruler, and Pluto suggests a difficult few days when you may not have the resources to cope with the sudden pressure under which you find yourself.
This is followed by a tense aspect between Saturn and Uranus when your need to adapt to new circumstances could be both strenuous and nerve-wracking. It will be hard work, but worthwhile in the long term and the Full Moon in Pisces echoes this, suggesting that a resolution to the tension you have been under is on its way.
# AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 19)
Mars continues its journey through the area of your chart connected with the home and family, creating a certain amount of tension, particularly if there is opposition to your ideas and plans.
And with Saturn in Leo, the demands made on you by your partner or those close to you may be heavier than normal. In the second week of july , Saturn forms a tense aspect to Pluto which could make life even more difficult for you, frustrating your plans and throwing up obstacles to your need for change.
Following this, Saturn aligns with Uranus, your ruler, indicating that concerns over finances or property become more of an issue, creating conflict between you and someone close.
Then Jupiter forms a tense aspect to Uranus and your impatience with restrictions may get the better of you so that you push for change regardless of the consequences. In fact, a sudden opportunity may arise at this time that significantly changes your life for the better.
And even the Full Moon promises that a resolution to your financial or property concerns is on its way.
# PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 21)
Venus and Jupiter combine in the area of your chart connected with jointly owned property and shared resources, bringing good news in this respect. But you may also be tempted to overspend at this time too, as these planets between them can encourage excess.
And while the New Moon in Virgo heralds a new beginning for you where close relationships are concerned, Uranus in your sign makes tense aspects to both Saturn and Jupiter in the latter half of the month, producing a difficult period of sudden changes when you will have to adapt to new circumstances which may not be of your choosing.
Although a sudden opportunity, possibly connected to your shared property, may completely change your life, there is a danger that you will jump at the chance of change simply to gain more freedom of choice and if you act too impulsively you may end up with the wrong results.
However, even the Full Moon in your sign indicates that you are about to make up your mind one way or the other.
