Libra July Forecast

Mars (physical energy/motivation and sexuality) begins July in the compatible air sign of Gemini. Gemini is your 9th House of overseas travel, publishing and deals with people in distant lands. Mars will exit Gemini and enter Cancer on 7/13 - 8/27. Your public reputation and people in positions of power will be areas that capture your attention with Mars in Cancer. You could be dealing with people who are experts in their chosen professions and you will find that these individuals play an important role in your life throughout the next year (Jupiter will be in Cancer).  If you're not employed, you will come up with innovative ideas to bring in more income. For those Libras already working hard, professional recognition from your peers is right around the corner. Just tone down emotional responses this month as Mercury will also be retrograde in Cancer until 7/20.
Venus (your planetary ruler) will be in Leo and your 11th House of friendships and group involvements this month until 7/22. Whenever your ruling planet transits the 11th House, popularity ensues via the areas and properties of that House. You notice friendships, groups and your hopes bring joy and admiration bringing about offers to make more money. During July, friends and love can become intertwined. A love relationship can change during this time. You could end one relationship only to begin a new one with someone you share a history with or you could hear about someone close to you who is on this path. You could decide or contemplate beginning a business with a friend or partner during Venus in Leo. With Mercury retrograde, take your time to rethink and review possible outcomes, for better or for worse. Once Mercury resumes direct on 7/20, you could find that this might not be such a good idea after all. Venus will enter Virgo on 7/22, and bring your career and finances into the spotlight. Venus in Leo brings appreciation and admiration from friends and, while in Virgo, shines a spotlight on your ability to bring in more income. During the transit of Venus in Virgo, your career promises to open new doors for you.
On 7/7, Saturn (discipline/structure) resumes direct in your 2nd House of property, income and investments. There could be a tendency to exaggerate financial facts and blow money matters out of proportion. The energy of this day can seem aggressive when dealing with others so avoid misunderstandings by utilizing diplomacy, something that comes naturally to you, Libra. Financial affairs begin to pick up steam and show signs of improvement as Saturn resumes direct motion. Just make sure you have put in the time and effort in order to reap the rewards of Saturn in your 2ns House. Saturn demands that you show up, work diligently and maintain a stable pace. Those Libras who have taken short cuts or not put in the time could be in for a shock or at the very least, a reality check.
7/8 - A New Moon forms in Cancer. A big focus this month falls on your 10th House and you could receive several new offers and options on this date to boost your earning potential and be in a stronger position than you imagined.
7/22 - A full Moon forms in Aquarius, your 5th House of passion, romance and creativity. Expect to gain the advantage in areas related to creativity, children and a romantic/love relationship.
At month's end, Jupiter (prosperity/ luck) and Mars (motivation/sexuality) will occupy your 10th House and bring about sweeping changes to your career. These two powerful planets in your 10th House promise to increase your income and help you choose the right path professionally. Cancer is an intuitive water sign, so you might feel as though you're following your heart and not your head during this expansive time in professional matters. Mars will be in Cancer until 8/27 and Jupiter will be in Cancer until June of 2014. This gives you an entire year to get professional matters moving in a direction that suits you.
Good days for Libra: 7/6, 7/10, 7/11, 7/23 & 7/28
Not so great days for Libra: 7/2, 7/7, 7/12, 7/16 & 7/21
A Cancer, Capricorn and an Aquarius will present offers to you this month that involve professional projects, financial assistance and emotional support when you need it most.
