Aries July Forecast

Mars (your planetary ruler) begins July in Gemini. Gemini is your 3rd House of intellect and communication, written and spoken. You can expect to gain popularity with your ruling planet in the compatible air sign of Gemini. Expect to be motivated when it comes to your career, communications and when it comes to family and siblings.  Adoration can come easily for you during this transit that lasts until 7/13, when Mars enters Cancer, your 4th House (of motherhood, family, and where you live). You find that your greatest motivation comes when dealing with communications: writing, speaking and speaking to large groups of people. You will charm others via the written and spoken word and can influence people over until 7/13. Once your ruler changes signs, the energy can change and you could find that you become easily irritated and sentimental. Accidents and errors can occur when Mars travels through the domestic sign of Cancer, so be on guard and remain alert during this transit. Mars will enter Cancer on 7/13 and remain in Cancer until 7/28.

Venus (Love) begins the month in Leo. Leo is your 5th House of fun, creativity and taking risks, Aries. With Venus in Leo expect love and creative projects to gain momentum and light up as invitations pour in, love looks brighter and you gain praise and admiration from others.  Since Leo is a charismatic and popular sign, you note this transit brings out your theatrical and dramatic side, Aries. Children, romance and creative ventures will be areas that bring you many smiles and greater fulfillment.  Once Venus enters Virgo on 7/22, you will find that you receive more appreciation and affection through your work place. Virgo is your 6th House of daily service, co-workers and your career. During Venus in Virgo an office romance could ignite, a new offer at a new job comes through, you could land a dream job or otherwise be promoted at your current one, and co-workers will shower you with appreciation.

On 7/7, Saturn (Discipline/Structure) resumes direct in your 8h House of shared resources, finances and committed relationships. There could be a tendency for you to exaggerate the facts and blow minor matters out of proportion on this day. Be patient and exercise diplomacy on this date for ideal results. You could notice that tension and irritability are in the air.

A New Moon occurs on 7/8 in Cancer. New offers come about relating to your relatives, in laws, earning abilities and a possible romance.

Once Mercury (Communications) turns direct on 7/20, family life resumes a normal pace, relations with relatives show improvement and issues from the past carry less weight than you previously imagined them to have.  In fact, opportunities can arise to make gains via your home and family life with Jupiter (Expansion/luck) and Mars (Energy/Sexuality) now in Cancer, your 4th House of home, family and relatives. Expect major changes on the home front after 7/20. Whenever Jupiter and Mars travel in the same sign, the area they travel in benefits you and your life expands and grows significantly. Expect home, family and where you live to play major roles, Aries. The areas of motherhood, the past and relatives may also be involved.

A Full Moon occurs in Aquarius on 7/22.  Caution on this full Moon, Aries. Friendships come under scrutiny and you might decide to exit from a long term association in favor of new relationships which appear to be more in sync with your life now. Be careful with the emotions of others on this full Moon. Someone you care for could be hurt by a careless remark. Be sure to take it easy on others as you might overstep boundaries on this day, Aries.

Great days: 7/5, 7/23, 7/26 & 7/28

Not so great days: 7/7, 7/14, 7/21 & 7/27

A Gemini, Virgo and a Pisces can be involved in your activities throughout the month of July especially where family and social matters are involved. A Sagittarius also figures in personal, social and or professional matters. Show appreciation, affection and love to these friends, family members and associates.
