Star Wisdom | July 2011


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Remember that all of this inner conflict is trying to set you free. What does that mean? It means being open and honest with your emotions. It means releasing family and social expectations and pursuing your true life’s work. It means letting go of “should” and learning to trust your heart.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You’ve got more lucky energy this month than you’ve had in a long time. With Jupiter in your sign, life just naturally wants to bring you positive experiences. Mars in your money house could bring unexpected expenses but as long as you stay focused on the good, you’ll breeze through with room to spare.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…July is like waking up in a different world. Last month’s eclipses changed your trajectory and showed you the person you are evolving into. Now is the time to get down to work and use your willpower to step into that vision of the ideal you. You’ve got plenty of energy this month, so use it for your own highest good.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Life has been relentlessly teaching you to let go of the past, specifically old ideas of who you are and how you must behave. This month you get to remake yourself in the image of the person you most long to be. This includes your key relationships so be willing to let go of one that will never be what you need it to be. This opens up room for a more aligned person to enter your life.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…The first three weeks of July are ideal for reviewing your progress since your last birthday. Not a time to push for glory, but rather a time to work hard, demonstrate perseverance and commitment, and trust your intuition. Wait for the cosmic green light on the 23rd, when the Sun enters your sign and activates lucky Jupiter in your career zone.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…It’s so important to choose your friends wisely this month and spend time with people who understand your goals and share your vision of the world. So many good things can come to you through your professional and community connections, but only if you’re connected to people who share your vibe.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Although it may be a little intense for your tastes, there’s a lot to love about July. After the eclipse on the 1st blows through, you’ve got fabulous career energy through the 22nd. With Saturn direct in your sign now, people take you seriously and treat your ideas with respect. So whether you’re taking the next step or starting over, throw yourself wholeheartedly into this new chapter.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You may continue to have to set boundaries in a key relationship but other than that, July looks so much easier than June. Your third eye opens up and gives you a bigger, more holistic perspective on your relationship struggles of the last few months. And this new understanding opens the door for you to enjoy the kind of relationship you dream about.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Money continues to be a huge part of your evolutionary game. You’ve got plenty of energy, so if you need more of the green stuff, why not go out and get it? With your ruling planet Jupiter in your house of work and service for the next year, work is what makes you happiest anyway. Get off the sidelines and get in the game.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…With an eclipse in your relationship house on the 1st and a Full Moon on the 15th in your sign, you gain more clarity as the month goes on. You’re good as long as you understand the rules and it looks like you finally grasp the changes you need to make in order to move forward. With Saturn direct in your career house, hard work will pay off, so keep at it.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…As long as you’re learning, everything else will somehow take care of itself. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it’s your lifeline right now. Refuse to tolerate boredom. Your mind is a portal to infinite realms of experience but you’re the one who must command and connect.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Your challenge this month is to catch yourself when you slip into whining mode. Focusing on your dissatisfaction only increases it. Your soul is longing for the experience of flow right now so connect with the creative project or activity that opens your heart. That’s what brings the abundance you long for.
