July 2022

Starting the month with Mars not only in his final days in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and with his romantic and creative passions and fighting spirit having just been refuelled, will make it easier to pay lip service to a need to make a balance between work and play a priority. After spending the final days of June aligned with the dwarf planet Eris, something that brought the warrior prince and princess of the cosmos together, no matter how busy life gets they are fighting to keep the playful side of life’s fence alive. However, this might become more of a challenge when Mars not only leaves on 5th July but returns to your busy and industrious work sector. This is Mars’ first visit in two years and returning just 12 days after Venus, the last of the faster planets left, the warrior planet returns to find everything lined up and active. All Mars has to do is add his warrior and competitive spirit to the mix and this professional year has all of a sudden caught its second wind. While Jupiter and Eris will stay on in a playful part of your chart, you may need to work harder to maintain the balance between work and play that is key to maintaining your productivity and creativity. Meanwhile, as always, the Sun will spend the first three weeks of July in your financial sector. The Sun will not only keep the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters until leaving on 23rd July, with Mercury here from 5th July to 20th July, the dwarf planet Ceres until 24th July and Venus from 18th July, every planet that will visit your financial sector this year will spend at least part of the month here. Venus will stay on as the Sun, Mercury and Ceres leave and return to an adventurous part of your chart, helping to maintain that all important balance between work and play.

While to still have planetary activity in your relationship sector as you move into July and the second half of the year is not rare, to have Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication both still here is an advantage. What is rare is to still have active planetary activity on the romantic front late in the year, getting the month off to an exceptionally good start on both fronts. Because you have had the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos in your romantic sector since 1926, the spirit of romance will never go completely off the boil but once the last of the faster planets leave each year, she stays in the background, quietly keeping the romantic flame burning. However, you not only start the month with Mars still in your romantic sector but with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion moving into his second full month. Mars will leave on 5th July but not before doing what he can to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit. Jupiter will turn retrograde on 29th July, something that will eventually see him retrograde back out but not until late October. Even then, Jupiter will return before Christmas to spend another five months, continuing what he is determined to make your luckiest year for love in over a decade. By the time the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 18th July to 20th July Jupiter will be at a near standstill, making these romantically charged lunar vibes a lot more potent. Meanwhile, while Mercury, the planet of communication will leave your relationship sector on 5th July, having returned for what is normally a 14 to 15 day visit at the end of April, he has spent an extraordinary amount of time getting the communication lines open. This is something that you will continue to benefit from while until leaving on 18th July, Venus will continue to work her magic. The Moon’s visit from 23rd July to 25th July will be a chance to regroup.

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your financial sector, the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year. This has temporarily shifted the focus away from the income side of the financial fence, giving money matters some much needed attention. Unlike your financial sector, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, there has been continuous planetary activity in your income sector since Pluto returned in 2022, with things especially active right through to March when Venus and Mars left. Since then Pluto has kept the wheels turning but at the end of April, he turned retrograde, something that allowed income matters to step back and give money matters some much needed space. While the Sun only returned to your financial sector on 21st June, the dwarf planet Ceres had been here for over five weeks by then, with her first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in five years giving this year’s annual financial update a head start. They will be joined by Mercury, who will make a short transit through your financial sector from 5th July to 20th July. While Mercury is only here for 15 days, this will give you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, think on your feet and to make smart financial choices, decisions and plans. Mercury will leave on 20th July, the Sun on 23rd July and Ceres a day later on 24th July but Venus’ return on 18th July will not only keep the momentum going but as the planet of money, she will work to ensure money matters are in the best possible position before her departure next month ends all planetary activity on this side of the financial fence. Meanwhile, while Pluto remains in retrograde motion, a Full Moon in your income sector creates the potential for an income breakthrough, especially as Mars will be in your work sector by then.
