Lunar Adventures: July Horoscope – Fireworks and Freedom


With a Full Moon conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, on July 1, and a New Moon in the sign of Cancer, on July 15, you are likely to experience some “fireworks,” or intense emotions, this month. Focus on that which makes you feel “at home,” and enjoy the 4th of July fireworks (if you live in the USA) with your family and friends. Venus and Uranus moving retrograde on July 25 and 26, respectively, will help us to value our freedom. Remember what the Indian mystic and teacher Osho said, “A certain darkness is needed to see the stars.”

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…As a result of a conflict with an authority figure, you may experience buried rage and the need to protect yourself. Instead of fighting, use your anger to work on a home-related or creative project. You are being given the opportunity to transform your feelings, and build a new emotional foundation for your future.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…What do you value in your relationships, especially with family members? This is an excellent time to learn about your beliefs, by studying psychology or by simply observing your relationships. Be honest with your feelings, and you will determine the real worth and value of the people in your life.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…There is a good chance that you’ll transform something in your life, this month, perhaps a relationship with a sibling. You are likely to speak your mind, at this time, which is a good thing. Release all that is unhealthy and holding you back in life. Increased self-esteem will be the result.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…This is likely to be an emotionally intense month for you. You could experience a power struggle with somebody. Nurture yourself. Get a new do, or treat yourself to a manicure. This is an excellent time to reinvent yourself. Channel your emotions into something physical, like salsa dancing. Be courageous and daring!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…This is an ideal time to take a break. Stay at a health spa, and practice yoga. Go on a pilgrimage; walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Or volunteer for an organization like Habitat for Humanity, and build houses abroad. Pay attention to synchronistic events. They are signs that will show you the way.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…What are your hopes and dreams? What do you feel passionate about? Find your clan, and join them. This is a good time to socialize, personally and professionally. Broadening your network of friends and business associates can help you develop your career, which you are most likely thinking about this month.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…As the month opens, you may experience buried emotions. The Full Moon will help you to confront old fears and issues from the past, allowing you to feel more empowered and move forward in your life. The New Moon will help you with your career and income, so set long-term professional goals at the Full Moon, too.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Communication seems to be the theme for you, this month. Use your words. Chances are you’ll be more intuitive, and it will be easier for you to approach sensitive and personal issues, such as the sharing of power and finances. This is a good time to let others know what you’re thinking and how you’re feeling.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Saturn has been helping you to develop a stronger sense of yourself, and anything to further your education would help, too. The New Moon would be a good time to take out a student loan. An individual from another culture or very different background may also serve as a teacher.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan.19)…Full Moons are about endings, and this is your month to say goodbye to associations that are not in alignment with you. You’re probably feeling very emotional about this, but you have learned how to say “no,” and you will be living a more authentic life. At the New Moon, a business partner may help you to get what you want.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…This is a good time to be by yourself and/or in therapy, to figure out how you can free yourself from the confines of your life. Pay attention to your dreams and/or practice stream-of-consciousness writing. Things that are hidden deep within you could bubble to the surface. Journaling can be an agent of change.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You may feel extra sensitive to the suffering of others, at the Full Moon, and wonder about your place in the world, as a result. Attune yourself to a higher spiritual purpose, and allow creative energy to flow through you at the New Moon. Nurture your own inner child, and follow her/his dreams for the future.
