Extended Pisces July Horoscope:
July continues to focus on love, romance, children, and creativity, as Mercury, Mars, the Sun, Venus, and the North Node glide through your 5th house all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune (your ruler!), Uranus and each other. Lucky you!
In fact, July 2nd sees a beautiful solar eclipse in this sector at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you meet a romantic interest, discover a pregnancy, launch a creative project or business, or even encounter a bit of fame!
This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your 5th house, oppose Saturn in your 11th house, sextile Uranus in your 3rd house, and trine your ruler, Neptune, in your sign.
You have some really excellent aspects this month for 5th house matters, so look to the following days to make your moves: July 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th.
With Saturn and Pluto opposing your 5th house and several of these planets, however, you could encounter obstacles along your way. Tricky days include July 4th, 14th, 17th, and 21st. A friend might even be jealous of your success!
Keep a special eye on July 9th, when the Sun will conjunct the North Node in your 5th house but oppose Saturn in your 11th house of friends and goals.
In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your 11th house of friends and goals- 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 challenging and very positive 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.
Your 11th house rules friendships, long-term goals, group affiliations, technology, humanitarianism, corporations, and philanthropy. It's possible that news arises about one of these things at this time, and whatever it is, it seems intense! It might be that you are offered a position of authority in a group you’re involved in- perhaps president or treasurer of a club or a seat on the board of a philanthropy. You might also make incredible progress on a long-term goal.
However, Saturn might also show you that a group or friendship you’re involved in (or a goal you’ve had) is not viable, and make sure that this person, group, or goal is “eclipsed” out of your life- for good.
The eclipse will oppose the North Node, Venus and Mercury in your 5th house of love, fun, and children, so whatever comes up could be at odds with whatever 5th house plans you have going on. You may even feel torn between your personal needs and group obligations (i.e. perhaps your new seat on the board of a philanthropy interferes with a romantic trip you had planned). It’s also possible that you feel caught between a friend and a lover.
Luckily, the eclipse will also reach out happily to your ruler, Neptune, in your sign of Pisces, so it's very possible you get some good and stabilizing news about a friendship, event, or long-term goal.
One other big thing to note this month is Mercury's retrograde in Leo and then Cancer from July 7th to 31st. I think that whatever news the solar eclipse brings to you will force you to reshuffle other aspects of your life, and Mercury’s retrograde will help you review and reshuffle for the rest of the month. 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!)
Leo rules your 6th house of work and health, and Cancer rules your 5th house of love and children. These areas of life could see confusion and/or changes this month with mercury’s retrograde.
In fact, the month could bring challenges to a health or job matter, as planets enter your 6th house of Leo and square Uranus in your 3rd house of transportation, siblings, and communication. July 11th and 29th could be tricky days.
Luckily, Mars will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your work and career zones, and possibly bringing good news your way.
In fact, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, possibly sweeping a new job your way!
