Taurus July Horoscope
SUMMARY Taurus JULY HOROSCOPE:
A solar eclipse sweeps new energy into your 3rd house of communication, and Mercury’s retrograde in this same sector could mean changes are coming. A lunar eclipse in your travel zone could see you travel, complete a degree, or hear news about your in-laws.
EXTENDED Taurus JULY HOROSCOPE:
July is focused on travel, siblings, communication, and contracts, as Mercury, Mars, the Sun, Venus (your ruler), and the North Node glide through your communication sector all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune in your goals house, Uranus in your sign, and each other.
In fact, July 2nd brings a beautiful solar eclipse to your communication house at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you hear news from a sibling, go on a trip, sign a contract, or begin a writing project.
This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your communication house, oppose Saturn in your travel zone, sextile Uranus in your sign, and trine Neptune in your goals house.
You have some really excellent days to achieve 3rd 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 communication house and several of these planets, however, you may have some challenges while traveling or communication. Be sure to double check your emails, plans, and reservations. 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 communication house but oppose Saturn in your travel zone.
In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your travel 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 9th house rules travel, academic endeavors, visionary thinking, publishing, and in-laws, so these are the areas of life lit up for you with the eclipse.
Again, there’s a good chance you will be doing some traveling or studying this month. Neptune will support the eclipse from your friendship sector, so perhaps you’ve got some friends or a group along for the ride!
Alternatively, you may complete or learn of your acceptance into a school, complete a visionary project, or publish a novel.
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 4th house of home, and Cancer rules your 3rd house of communication.
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, 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 4th house of home. Watch July 11th and 29th, when Mercury and then the Sun in Leo will square Uranus in your sign. You may have trouble with a home or family matter.
Luckily, Mars will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your home and finance zones. This would be a great time to redecorate or refinance your home.
Next month, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, and it’s possible you’ll move, begin a remodel, or hear news about a family member.
