It might be a nice idea to go on holiday this month. Retrograde activity achieves its maximum for the year, with 50 per cent of the planets moving backwards by the end of the month. Even Venus, your personal planet, will make a rare retrograde on the 25th. This means that there will not be much happening in the world or in many areas of your life in July and not much you can do in order to speed things up. A holiday is advisable for other reasons too – health and energy are still stressed (especially until the 23rd) and more rest is needed. Various things in your life will straighten themselves out of their own accord in the coming months. There’s no need to force things and raise your stress levels.
One of the problems with a holiday is because you are in a yearly career peak until the 23rd. However, with today’s technology one can be in contact with work from anywhere. It might be feasible.
Finances improve after the 23rd but still seem slow. The two planets involved in finance – Saturn and Pluto – are both retrograde. The important thing now is to gain conceptual clarity in this area. This is about making your homework, getting the facts, resolving the doubts. Then your financial decisions will be sound.
Love is always high on the agenda. Many of the trends of last month are either still in effect now. The love planet, Mars, spends the month in your 10th house. The spouse, partner or current love is succeeding and is supportive of your career goals. In many cases, this transit signal that loves itself – the ongoing relationship – is the career and the main priority. In many cases, it displays in the advancement of the career through social means. Singles are always attracted to people of power and prestige. Like last month, power is your aphrodisiac. Like last month, office romances are apt.
One of the problems with this position makes it easier to get into a relationship of convenience rather than of actual love. Convenience might give some comfort, but it is not love.
Previous month the planetary power began to make an important shift from the West to the East of the horoscope – from the societal to the independent sector. This month the shift is even stronger. It is high time to focus on number one, time to please yourself rather than trying to please others, time to make those changes in your life that have to be done. Personal independence and power are on increasing day by day. The only problem with this is the retrograde of Venus. You have to be clear on exactly what should be changed. This seems confusing at the moment. So thinks of and making your plans now. When Venus moves forward in a couple of months’ time, the changes will be easy to make.
