With two eclipses this month—a solar eclipse on July 2 and a lunar eclipse on July 16—July brings unexpected opportunities. Some will be called upon to make important decisions that majorly impact their lives moving forward. Although these developments may leave you confused, nervous, and uncertain about the future, the cosmic energy will help you see things very differently. Expect unusual happenings on the relationship front, but remember that clinging to the past or traditional methods will not yield any favorable results. Instead, move forward to start something new. The planetary change is likely to bring positive results if you avoid conflicts with others and go with the energy flow.
July 4 is Jagannath Rath Yatra, the festival of chariots; it is dedicated to Lord Jagannath (Lord Krishna), his sister Subhadra, and elder brother Balabhadra.
Monthly mantra: “Om Jagannath Namo Namah”
Pronunciation: Om Jagan Nath Na Mo Nahm Ah ha

SUN SIGN OF THE MONTH
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac and its symbol is the Crab. Cancer natives tend to be emotional, sensitive, loyal, charming, inquisitive, and honest. True from the heart, they are intelligent, bright, and frugal. They believe in long-lasting relationships, hence they are deeply attached to the people they love. Cancer natives are generally found to be highly thoughtful, considerate, intuitive, wisdom-oriented, talented, energetic, friendly, methodical, confident, and systematic.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, a royal planet, so those born under this sign have high taste. As the Moon is the significator of the mind, the emotional state of Cancer natives is fragile, keeps changing, and is affected by anything, even a movie, weather, or sentimental song. Cancer natives do better in life if they learn to balance their emotions and rely on their instincts and intuition to guide their decisions.
The Cancer male has a charming face and graceful looks. He never imitates others; he has his own ideas and convictions and loves to live life his own way. He is highly dedicated, systematic, and reaches great heights in his career because of his talents and hard work. He has a unique way of doing things that makes him extremely popular among his peers, but he needs to control his tendency to be arrogant, jealous, and vindictive at times. Though typically highly optimistic, he can sometimes become highly pessimistic from the impact of changing Moon. He never sits idle, has keen and natural instincts, and his first impression of others is generally correct. He tends to listen more to his heart and mind than to the people around him. People can extract favors from him by simply being nice to him, so you will always find him doing something for others.
A Cancer woman has many unique qualities. She has a lot of self-confidence and imagination. She possesses a sharp mind and intelligence. She will daringly face situations that other people might resist, considering them too risky or stressful. She seldom looks back and is always focused toward the future, but she needs to control her tendency to be erratic, impatient, and hot tempered at times. Having a strong influence of Moon, she has attractive features, graceful looks, a sweet smile, and bright eyes. Her optimistic approach lights her way to success. She is fond of outdoor activities and games and loves to travel and see new places and meet new and interesting people. She has an amazing personality, which leaves a long-lasting impression on everyone she meets. She is very creative and immensely enjoys intellectual conversation.
This July, Cancer will feel energetic, active, and enthusiastic to do something new. With a great personality and confidence, you will possess good command over your work. However, you need to be proactive, as you may lose some good opportunities if you postpone or delay decisions. Your excessive energy and tremendous drive will bring you remarkable financial gains, likely from past investments. New sources of income will be generated, but partnerships should be avoided. Legal issues that have been lingering for a long time seem to go in your favor. A vacation to an exotic location seems likely. Your health will remain good, but the health of a family member will cause some anxiety and concern. If you’re unattached, there is a strong possibility to meet someone special and enter into a committed relationship.
