* monthly * horoscopes - july 2017
- aries : the ram - aries
march 20 - april 19
The alignments that prevail this month challenge you to be more yourself. You are tasked with making the circumstances in which you find yourself, more of the perfect environment in which to live out your days and explore the subscript of your potential. The events and residual legacy of the twenty-first century’s second decade, add and contribute to this process. While you almost certainly don’t have all you want, all you need is within reach. You are assisted in your quest for autonomy, by what you have learned over recent years. You appreciate the rules of the game and can act most effectively, within those parameters.
taurus - taurus : the bull -
april 20 - may 20
A number of important developments, manifest on a private and personal level. This means, that although they aren’t obvious beyond your immediate circle, the significance of what occurs now is substantial. You are keen to differentiate yourself from the crowd and to feel that you can make a valuable contribution, but you’d rather this was not at the expense of social acceptance and company. Thus any changes must begin slowly at first and close to where you live. You can learn more than you’d imagined without venturing far, while the process of accepting yourself needs a firm foundation to underpin future progress.

may 21 - june 20
Your relationship prospects look rather rosy. This covers a range of associations on a professional, business, personal and social level. It encompasses any link that functions on a one-to-one basis: from close colleagues at work, through best friends, competitors and even adversaries. Often though, romantic partnership is emphasised leading to a number of possibilities depending on your circumstances. Some find the courage, to leave an unfulfilling situation you have suffered for too long. Where life looks more satisfactory, you may be considering a greater level of commitment. This is your chance to sort things out!

june 21 - july 22
July begins with a celestial emphasis on your constellation. This gradually dissipates as first Mercury and ultimately the Sun, depart from your region of the sky. It is your birthday around this time of the year and just as that’ll put all eyes on you, so the cosmos inclines you towards the fulcrum of events. You are generally a retiring individual, who feels ambivalent at best about this place in the limelight and who would rather others didn’t scrutinise and analyse your every move. Still, if you need to make an impression and get your message across, the first week of July is the most favourable period in an often fortuitous month.
- leo : the lion - leo
july 23 - august 22
Three planets in your sign become four around the new moon on July 23. This helps you believe that an extended period in the wilderness is finally coming to an end, after what hasn’t actually been very long, but has felt like an eternity. Others cannot fail but take notice of your presence and opinion after months of apathy and inertia, while you should know this is only the warm-up for what is promising to be the main event. August sees the Great American Eclipse sweep across the contiguous United States. You’re never one to dodge the spotlight but even so, you may wish you’d had a little longer to adjust to its glare again…
virgo - virgo : the maiden -
august 23 - september 22
Venus spends the bulk of July in the uppermost sector of your chart. From here it complements Jupiter in your monetary zone, helping you to capitalise on opportunities at work and to get paid for your efforts. Those in authority are more favourably disposed towards you than they seem to have been lately and your professional affairs look less arduous, while flowing more easily for a change. It would be wonderful to say the same about your domestic circumstances and life at home, but then again you can’t have everything. You might look at your friends and colleagues differently, if you were with them all of the time.
- libra : the scales - libra
september 23 - october 22
Jupiter continues through your sign. This signals a new cycle of growth and progress, that you’ll definitely be able to spot in retrospect even if it is harder to determine at the time. Yet for the first half of July, rather like the closing stages of June, Jupiter is involved in some complicated celestial machinations that make all its benefits and bonuses rather trickier to actualise. You should still be on the lookout for opportunities to travel, learn something new, or deal with folk from different backgrounds and walks of life. But be prepared to create your own luck, rather than just waiting for it to start knocking on your door.
scorpio - scorpio : the scorpion -
october 23 - november 21
You can sense your increased ambition, once Leo gravitates to become the sign of the month. Your financial position is a motivating factor, but the primary driving force is a more personal affair that runs deeper than money worries. You want to make your mark and where this has not been possible, you are driven to consider new ways in which you can make a bigger impact. Independent ventures are favoured, although you might previously have reached numerous conclusions to the contrary. You want to feel proud of what you have achieved on your own terms, not for any glory but a sense of personal accomplishment.
- sagittarius : the archer - sagittarius
november 22 - december 21
During the second half of July, Saturn in your sign forms an encouraging connection both to Mercury in Leo and to Uranus, nearing the end of its lengthy stay in Aries. This puts the entire fire sign triplicity at your disposal, forming a stable and auspicious pattern covering the majority of the sky, enabling you to enjoy the benefits of Saturn’s visit to your neighbourhood for a change. Not much is apparent on the surface, as is typical of this planet’s understated modus operandi. But you can feel a new perspective starting to coalesce, based on practical experience and in the light, of all you’ve tried to achieve recently…
capricorn - capricorn : the sea-goat -
december 22 - january 19
There is a contrast between your home life as it was at the beginning of this decade, versus your domestic situation and family affairs today. You’ll acknowledge that many of these changes have been for the best, even if they didn’t always pan out as you hoped. Yet others have been deeply unsettling, while it looks like these developments are far from behind you. For a number of reasons, to do with your circumstances and social trends, much of this is unavoidable. By attempting to cling on to a sense of stability that hasn’t existed for years, you unintentionally create more insecurity than you would have encountered otherwise…
- aquarius : the water-bearer - aquarius
january 20 - february 18
You have worked assiduously. While some would claim your motivation is impractical, you have given matters your best shot and on your own terms, could not have tried any harder. In some ways it has been great fun, but often your labours looked exhausting and overwhelming. Still, the wider world doesn’t see these travails from the same angle you do. For some, your continued existence is nothing besides an affront to their sensibilities. To spot you making any headway, no matter how hard-fought it proves, calls into question lots of what they thought they previously understood and turns their world view on its head…

february 19 - march 19
The passage of Neptune through your sign is an extended proposition. Beginning over six years back there are still nine years to go, so if you intend to wait out this influence you’d better not hold your breath. Since 1846, this planet has been linked with your constellation and its journey through your region of the heavens, is only the second chance we’ve had to observe its effects. Neptune favours creativity, inspiration, intuition, kindness, selflessness and charity. But it’s a hazy and nebulous influence that takes ages to impact. Neptune never reacts well to upset, upheaval or self-interest; deadlines, goals and rules…
