Oh, Libra. Nothing irks you more than when your close romantic partnership is out of sorts, in a slump, or not going according to your plan. Whether you're in a committed partnership, on the dating scene, or somewhere in between, you'll feel as if there's not much you can do about your love life this month. You have found yourself in a complete and total rut.
This is due to two factors. For starters, your ruling planet Venus will move into the most hidden part of your chart on July 9 and remains here through August 6. Something painful about your romantic situation might be worked on during this time. You might receive counseling or have a personal breakthrough that allows you to work on whatever it is that needs fixing in your relationship. That's the positive spin. The not-so-positive angle of Venus moving through your 12th House of Shadows is that you may experience an unrequited love situation. Alternately, it's possible there are secrets in your relationship and you can't quite put your finger on what they are. The truth eludes you in matters of the heart this month and that doesn't feel very good.
Adding to this is the fact that Mars is retrograde in your romance sector all month. In fact, he'll be retrograde through August 27, making it nearly impossible for you and your lover to see any true forward movement in your love connection. Your sex life might become nonexistent or less fulfilling than usual. If you're dating someone, you might even decide to let the relationship go at the Lunar Eclipse on July 27, which happens in the same area of your chart.
Not every Libra will experience harsh endings this month, so don't resign yourself to romantic misery. If you and your partner are both willing to do the work needed to salvage your relationship, then this month will be a time where you don't see the rewards. However, if you do the work, they will be promised in the near future.
In other news, you may have a career turning point at the Solar Eclipse on July 12. Embrace whatever opportunity flies your way!
