This July, Saturn continues its retrograde motion and reenters Scorpio. Venus will be strong as it transits Taurus, its own sign. Jupiter will continue its transit through Virgo. Mars will become debilitated and combust. The cosmic energy guides us towards self-control, making adjustments in our relationships and avoiding misuse of power. This is the period to seek your goals without resorting to any abuse of your position or manipulation.

The stars promise results if we let go of our past and leave things behind that no longer serve our interest. Venus will bring new ideas and resolutions, while Mars will bring uncertainty. You will want a guerrilla warfare approach to handle challenges. However, you need to remember that any hasty or ill-thought-out decisions will bring more disappointment than could be imagined.

Sun, Mercury, and Mars will be conjoined most of the month. The need of the hour is to channel the energy of this alignment to pursue research, learning and opening new fronts of communication. As this transit is in the sign of Cancer, you will be open and sincere in whatever you do. Efforts put during this period will bring immediate changes for you. Metaphorically, speaking it is not wrong for me to say that this transit can help you shed your old skin and grow a new one.

SUN SIGN OF THE MONTH

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac and its symbol is the “crab.” It is a sign ruled by the Moon. A Cancer-born native is extremely sensitive, inquisitive, loyal, and sincere person. They are highly intelligent, bright, and extremely frugal. A Cancer born person is pure of heart. That is why they are deeply attached to their spouse, family, and children. Those born under this sign may seem hard on the surface, but are extremely soft from inside. At times, a Cancer person may take a hard line, but this aggression will purely be due to self-defense.

A Cancer-born person will be a good friend though they may be very choosy in this respect. But once they have made their choice, the friendship will remain firm and deep. A Cancer native behaves just like its sign lord, the Moon. When full, it is bright and pleasing. But at its lowest ebb, it can be dull and unexciting. The emotional state of this zodiac sign is affected by anything, whether big or small, by the weather or even a movie.

A Cancer person suffers as they tend to be highly emotional and sensitive. Cancerians who can learn to balance their emotions and rely upon their instincts and intuitions to guide their decisions, do far better in life. If a Cancer native wants to live happily, they need to improve their confidence. Their psychic senses, together with their emotions, can make them very powerful to achieve just about anything they aim.

This month, with new moon in your sign, you will be highly emotional and sensitive. Arguments with superiors, employers or colleagues will be detrimental. Do not expect obligations from others and finish important work yourself. Improvement in your cash liquidity seems likely around the middle of July from recovery of outstanding payments and gains through speculation.

Your determination and confidence at work will set an example for your subordinates to follow and it may eventually bring recognition and rewards for you. A better understanding with your spouse brings happiness, peace and prosperity at home.

The last quarter of the month may surprise the entire family as an old family friend will pay an unexpected visit and bring back nostalgic and wonderful memories. New romance and friendship will prove to be worthwhile and long lasting. Health problems due to overexertion and stress are likely, therefore, you must not ignore preventive medicine. Don’t mix drinking and driving as plenty of social gatherings and evening dinners are in your cards.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

The new month begins with new plans and projects, which may be alluring, but it won’t be wise to make hasty and emotional decisions, especially when negotiating certain financial aspects. Previous investments in money market will bring favorable results. Your stubborn and possessive nature may mar the peace and harmony at home. Time for some introspection—acknowledging your responsibilities toward your family can only ease the prevailing tension. The middle of the month may lift up your spirits as a casual friendship within your group may strengthen into a romantic alliance. By the latter part of July, some good news will bring happiness for you and the entire family. Despite a busy and hectic month, your health will be fine. Meditation and yoga would be beneficial for spiritual as well as physical gains. Renovation, technology upgrades, and pilgrimage, for some, will be high on the personal agenda.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

You may experience some disagreements with seniors that could ruin your ability to concentrate at work. Colleagues will be supportive and provide you with all kinds of assistance that you might need. The first week will see businessmen establishing new contacts and alliances. Foreign transactions and journeys may bring handsome monetary benefits. By the middle of July, you may see gains through speculation, but only on selective stocks, so you need to be careful where to put your hard-earned money. By the end of the month, you may get involved in a renovation project of your living room or start purchasing luxuries to improve your comfort. Pending household chores will be completed with the help of your spouse, and you will receive greater affection and love from your children. Your health will need extra care as work pressure will take a toll on your body this month. Regular morning walks, a stable diet, and a short vacation at the end of the month may help in regaining your lost energy and spirits.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)

Conferences and business meetings will take up much of your time. Listen to others before you give your own opinion. Unexpected gains and losses suggest that you should not depend on others for financial advice. Travel undertaken for work purposes in the first half of the month will bring pleasure along with desired results. Your sincerity and dedication at work will be noticed by your superiors and may win you lots of appreciation and other benefits. Family members, including your spouse, will be demanding, which could create uneasiness for you at home. The latter half of the month may see children involving themselves in small career-oriented programs and further studies. Wedding bells for some, while others will find romance to keep them going. Health definitely needs more precaution than cure, especially for those who are prone to getting sick with the change in weather.

Virgo (August 24 to September 22)

There seems to be a delay in recovering from a pending payment from the market, which imposes acute financial pressure on you. You spend most of your time knocking on the doors of your customers, banks, and friends. There will be little respite toward the middle of the month. Friends and family members will be supportive and provide you with temporary assistance. Long pending judicial problems and disputes seem to get sorted out to your satisfaction, bringing a sense of relief to your mind in the latter half of the month. A sudden development on your domestic front brings about jubilation and celebrations for the entire family. Your spouse will be in a cheerful mood providing you with lots of affection and care.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)

You would be wise to control your expenses and spend strictly as per your budget. Your financial position will improve in the second half of the month. You may be quite upset with your friends as they pay no heed to your concerns, but do not be harsh in your speech and stay calm as soon they acknowledge your importance and feelings. Romantic matters and affairs of the heart will bring joy and happiness. Traveling abroad around mid-July will prove to be highly beneficial not only for pleasure, but also for monetary gains. Last week sees relatives and guests crowding your house, and your habit to please everybody leaves you exhausted and physically tired. Take rest in between work and ask family members to share your workload. Backaches, a stiff neck and other stress-related problems cannot be ruled out.

The latter half of the month will bring some unexpected gains from unplanned sources, which could make you go on a small shopping spree for yourself and the entire family. Those eligible for marriage will find a suitable match this month. Health seems perfect, but your tendency to put on extra weight and overwork will require you to be very religious towards your daily exercise.

A trip that you might have planned well in advance might get postponed or not bring in the desired results. By the end of July, you may be closely associating with either a saintly man or a highly influential person who could have tremendous positive influence on your personality and outlook. Romance may be in the air, so keep your beloved happy and make the best of it. Your health, or the health of someone in your family, may become an issue of concern and anxiety.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

You need to keep a strict control on your temper to avoid disappointments in business and professional activities. A new venture or unexpected gains are possible. Focus on career objectives. Lucrative opportunities may come your way toward the middle of the month, but you should be efficient and smart to grab them before others. You will spend a handsome amount on luxuries and other comforts, but your extravagant nature will create tension and arguments on the home front. A distant journey will bring happiness, but also prove expensive to your pocket. Devote time and attention to your family members and children. Emotionally, this seems to be a very sensitive month, which would have an adverse effect on your health. Unwanted stress and anxiety will ruin your ability to think properly, and may bring down your morale and spirits. A short pleasure trip towards the end of the month may prove to be the antidote you require to relieve yourself from all these tensions and stress.
