If you've felt that your relationship growth potential has halted, the universe is about to accelerate this part of your life once again. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will turn direct in your partnership sector on July 10 after having been retrograde for the last few months. With Jupiter now moving forward through November 8, you'll begin to see real momentum in your connection between you and someone close. This might be in your personal life, in business matters, or in both areas. Although you've been challenged to open up and relate in the deepest, most honest and intimate way possible in order to enjoy genuine connections, the more you're willing to do this, the greater your reward will be. Don't be afraid to do the work.
In fact, your love life will enjoy an overall boost this month. Venus, your ruler, will enter your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure on July 9 and remains in this part of your chart until August 6. You truly have a lovely amount of support between Venus and Jupiter this month to foster a positive and heartfelt connection with someone. Pay special attention to July 22 when Venus and Jupiter align perfectly to one another. Love is divine for you on this day!
While your romantic prospects look stunning this month, your career seems to have a bad case of indigestion. Not only is Mars traveling retrograde all month long in your career sector, but a tense Lunar Eclipse will land at the top of your chart on July 27 at the very same degree as Mars Retrograde. For some, this might suggest stalled or frustrated success as you try to push ahead with a professional endeavor. For others, it might be the end of the road, one where you need to call the time of death on a goal you've had. This could prompt you to pursue a new path entirely. It doesn't have to be this dramatic, but it will be a significant turning point in your career path, and you might not feel as though you have complete control. Trust that the universe is leading you to what is best.
In addition, you might experience a few hiccups in family matters once Mercury turns retrograde on July 26 in your home sector. Avoid signing contracts or making important decisions with relatives. A real estate matter might be stalled until August 19. When it comes to your relationship with relatives during this time, your best course of action is to expect nothing, assume nothing, and clarify everything.
