Aries July horoscope
SUMMARY Aries JULY HOROSCOPE:
A solar eclipse sweeps new energy into your 4th house of home and family, and Mercury’s retrograde in this same sector could mean changes are on their way. A lunar eclipse in your career zone could bring a career matter to a head.
EXTENDED Aries JULY HOROSCOPE:
July is focused on housing and family matters, as Mercury, Mars (your ruler), the Sun, Venus, and the North Node glide through your home sector all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune in your closure house, Uranus in your salary zone, and each other.
In fact, July 2nd brings a beautiful solar eclipse to your home zone at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you move, buy or sell a home, spend time with family, or welcome a new bundle of joy. It’s also possible you hear news about a parent, child, or close woman in your life.
This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your home zone, oppose Saturn in your career house, sextile Uranus in your income sector, and trine Neptune in your closure zone.
You have some really excellent days to achieve 4th house goals, so look to the following days to make your moves: July 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th.
With Saturn and Pluto opposing your home house and several of these planets, however, you may be torn between matters at home and matters on the job. It could be a struggle to manage both. Tricky days include July 4th, 14th, 17th, and 21st.
Keep a special eye on July 9th, when the Sun will conjunct the North Node in your home zone but oppose Saturn in your career sector.
In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your career sector on July 16th. This is a very interesting eclipse, given that it is conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. Now, Saturn is a tricky planet to judge, as he can bring both very positive and very challenging developments in his wake. On the one hand, Saturn is very stabilizing. On the other, his lessons can be tough, and jarring, and pretty much final. The fact that Saturn rules Capricorn and is currently transiting Capricorn, does at least help us out a bit!
Your 10th house rules career and status, so it’s possible that a career matter comes to a head at this time. You may receive a new job or promotion, and if so, it seems the job will come with a lot of responsibility. It could feel heavy at times. It may also be that it is a demanding and hard position, and you will have to work hard to prove yourself over the coming year.
Lunar eclipses can also “eclipse” situations out of our lives, so it’s possible you leave a job at this time or complete an assignment. Perhaps you’ve been trying to leave for a while, and if so, this will feel like a release to you. Saturn’s presence ensure this will be final.
The other big thing to note this month is Mercury's retrograde in Leo and then Cancer from July 7th to 31st. Leo rules your 5th house of love and children, and Cancer rules your 4th house of home. Unfortunately, as you know, Mercury’s retrograde is not the best time to sign agreements or make decisions, so try to keep this in mind around eclipse time. It seems you may be forced into making decisions anyway.
I think that whatever news the solar eclipse brings to you about home and family matters could force you to reshuffle other aspects of your life, and Mercury’s retrograde will help you make changes. It may even be the impetus for leaving or accepting a job. If possible try not to commit to anything too permanent during this time, as information will be changing rapidly (although with the lunar eclipse conjunct Saturn, it seems hard to avoid permanence this month!)
As the month continues, planets will trickle into Leo and your 5th house of love, children, and creativity. Watch July 11th and 29th, when Mercury and then the Sun in Leo will square Uranus in your salary house. You may get hit with some unexpected expenses.
Luckily, Mars will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your love and travel zones. This would be a great time to go on a date, try for a baby, or go on a romantic trip.
Next month, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, and it’s possible you find romance, hear news about a child, or launch a “baby” of another kind, such as a business, website, or creative project!
