Scorpio July Horoscope
SUMMARY Scorpio JULY HOROSCOPE:
A solar eclipse sweeps new energy into your 9th house of travel and education, and Mercury’s retrograde in this same sector could mean changes are on the way. A lunar eclipse in your communication house could bring an contract, trip or travel matter to a head.
EXTENDED Scorpio JULY HOROSCOPE:
July continues to focus on travel and education, as Mercury, Mars (your ruler), the Sun, Venus, and the North Node glide through your 9th house all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune in your love sector, Uranus in your relationship zone, and each other.
In fact, July 2nd sees a beautiful solar eclipse in your travel house at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you go on a fabulous overseas trip, get accepted into your dream school, or begin a summer workshop or program of some kind.
This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your 9th house, oppose Saturn in your communication house, sextile Uranus in your 7th house of relationships, and trine Neptune in your love sector.
It seems any vacation will be full of romance, but if love isn’t on the brain, it will at least be incredibly fun!
If you’re not traveling, you might be working on a visionary project or academic achievement at this time, and if so, it appears to be creative. It might even involve writing or the arts.
You have some really excellent aspects this month for 9th house matters, so look to the following days to make your moves: July 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th.
With Saturn and Pluto (your other ruler) opposing your 9th house and several of these planets, however, you could encounter miscommunications or delays on your way. 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 9th house but oppose Saturn in your communication zone. This might be an especially difficult communication or travel day.
In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your communication house on July 16th. This is a very interesting eclipse, given that it is conjunct both Saturn and Pluto (again, that’s your ruler). 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. However, given that your ruler, Pluto, is conjunct this eclipse, I think that you’ll like whatever comes up.
Your 3rd house rules vehicles, short trips, contracts, siblings, and agreements. It seems that one or more of things will come to a head this month.
You might get a new car or motorcycle, complete a writing project, sign an agreement, go on a trip, or end a commitment this month. It’s also possible you hear news about a sibling.
With Saturn’s involvement, you might actually have difficulty at this time- perhaps your car suddenly dies, or a vendor terminates an agreement. However, the eclipse will also reach out happily to Neptune in your love zone, so it seems that ultimately you’ll be able to make this eclipse work for you.
One other big thing to note this month is Mercury's retrograde in Leo and then Cancer from July 7th to 31st. Leo rules your 10th house of career, and Cancer rules your 9th house of travel. Unfortunately, as you know, this is not the best time to sign agreements or make decisions, and of course the house of agreements is where this eclipse falls for you! Tough timing. Do the best you can.
I think that whatever news the solar eclipse brings to you about travel or education will force you to reshuffle other aspects of your life, and Mercury’s retrograde will help you review and revise those aspects 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!)
In fact, the month could bring challenges to career matters, as planets enter your 10th house of Leo and square Uranus in your 7th house of relationships. It’s possible that partnership needs are at odds with career ones, or that you have trouble with an authority figure. July 11th and 29th could be tricky days.
Luckily, Mars (your ruler!) will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your career and money zones, which should put some pep in your step.
In fact, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, so you might be getting a new job or promotion next month!
