Summer may be a time for fun in the Sun for many people, but there are too many professional opportunities for you this month to miss out on while relaxing on the beach. A subtle shift toward productivity starts when constructive Saturn turns forward in your 2nd House of Resources on July 7, reminding you to invest in the skills you need to increase your income.
On July 8, the New Moon in normally cautious Cancer falls in your 10th House of Career to initiate bold action. This lunation is opposite unrelenting Pluto and square to unruly Uranus, which can spawn a work-related crisis. Yet it could be a powerful launching pad for career transformation if you hope to make a major change. Warrior Mars stirs things up on July 13 when he enters Cancer and trines Neptune and Saturn on July 20.
Fortunately, your strong emotions and potentially impulsive behavior are tempered by a strategic Grand Water Trine on July 17-20. Expansive Jupiter, constrictive Saturn, and intuitive Neptune align favorably, providing a balance of vision, reason, and faith to help assess and advance your professional interests.
Business-related information flows more easily and suspended projects get back on track when communicative Mercury turns direct in your 10th House on July 20. The intelligent Aquarius Full Moon shines in your 5th House of Creativity on July 22. This innovative event encourages originality, yet its stressful square to cautious Saturn and clumsy quincunx with sweet Venus can inhibit you with shyness. It's a day of contrasts as Venus moves into prim Virgo while the Sun strides into boisterous Leo and your 11th House of Friends, increasing your visibility in your community.
Keep in Mind this Month
Pursue your long-term goals by focusing on the big picture. Don't waste your energy on the minor details of your daily life.
