A solar eclipse sweeps new energy into your sign of Cancer, and Mercury’s retrograde in your sign could mean changes are on the way. A lunar eclipse in your relationship zone could bring a partnership matter to a head.


Happy birthday, Cancer!

July heralds your own personal new year, dear Crab, as Mercury, Mars, the Sun, Venus, and the North Node glide through your sign all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune in your travel house, Uranus in your goals zone, and each other. 

In fact, July 2nd brings a beautiful solar eclipse to your sign at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you launch a new personal or professional goal.

This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your sign of Cancer, oppose Saturn in your relationship zone, sextile Uranus in your goals sector, and trine Neptune in your travel house.

It seems any number of things are possible this month! You might achieve a long-held goal, attend a fun event, or launch a technology project. It’s also possible you go on vacation, maybe even with a group of friends.

You have some really excellent aspects this month to socialize, travel, and address your goals, so look to the following days to make your moves: July 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th. 

With Saturn and Pluto opposing your sign and several of these planets, however, you may need to tend to a relationship issue as well. Tricky relationship 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 sign but oppose Saturn in your relationship zone. If you feel gloomy today, try not to take it out on your partner.

In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your relationship 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 7th house rules one-on-one relationships, so this is the area of life lit up for you with the eclipse.

There is a good chance you get engaged or married this month, and it’s also possible you discover a pregnancy!

Alternatively, if you have been struggling within a marriage or relationship, you may decide to break it off at this time. If you initiated proceedings earlier this year, they may be finalized around eclipse time.

With Saturn’s involvement, whatever it is could either be heavy and jarring, or it could just mean it’s very important in your life.

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 2nd house of income, and Cancer obviously rules your 1st house of identity, freedom, and personality. It seems that any new beginnings you launch this month could require some revision.

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 will force you to reshuffle other aspects of your life- perhaps relationship- related aspects- and Mercury’s retrograde will help you make changes. 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 2nd house of income. Watch July 11th and 29th, when Mercury and then the Sun in Leo will square Uranus in your 11th house of goals, friends, and technology. You may learn of an expense at this time.  

Luckily, Mars will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your money and work zones, which could bring good money news your way.

Next month, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, and it’s possible you’ll get a raise, new job, or lucrative client!
