Your horoscope for July 5 to 11, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      July will come and go before you know it. To be sure, the experience and the memories will stick around for a lot longer.

      Thursday through Sunday, the stars are mostly on a smooth-running course. Even though we are on a winddown before the next new moon, the week ahead has a lot going for it.

      Venus leaves Leo for Virgo late Monday, assisting you/us to get back to work on whatever was interrupted or waylaid in recent weeks. Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde cycle next Tuesday. Jupiter will still be on a magnification track by the time Thursday’s solar eclipse arrives. This is a partial solar eclipse in Cancer and also a super new moon. In opposition to Pluto in Capricorn, it’s sure to pack an emotional punch. Be reminded that an eclipse is of heightened influence in the month preceding and following the actual event. This eclipse has already made its presence known by hitting below the belt, by usurping security and safety in numerous ways (i.e., trade wars threatening economic stability; the migrant children/parents situation in the USA).

      Eclipses act as acceleration catalysts. A new chapter supersedes an ending in some dynamic, fated, karmic way. Bringing the past full circle, Thursday’s eclipse cements a new bottom-line reality. What ends, expires, or begins sets the foundation for the long term. Watch for a major announcement, for someone of significance to exit the planet, or for a notable birth to make headlines. Venus in Virgo, well aligned with Uranus and Saturn, exposes vulnerability and weak spots. Venus also sets a backdrop for correction, improvement, and healing.

      March 20 - April 19

      Thursday/Friday finish the week on an upswing. You should feel that you are getting yourself someplace better. Entering Virgo on Monday, Venus forms a good working relationship with both Uranus and Saturn for the rest of the week. Next Thursday’s solar eclipse officially marks the end of a personal era and the beginning of a new base line, especially regarding home, family, and career.

      April 20 - May 20

      The stars keep to a relatively smooth-running track through the end of the weekend. You’ll have no trouble making the most out of the time you spend and the conversations you have. Once Venus enters Virgo and Jupiter ends retrograde you’ll hit a major move-it-forward track. Monday through Friday defines the shape of things to come in some significant and karmic way.

      May 21 - June 21

      Thursday/Friday are optimum for cutting loose. This weekend, take it as it comes, avoid the crowds, easy does it best. One way or another, Venus in Virgo, starting late Monday, will put you to work. Home matters and family keep you especially busy. Health, wealth, or actual repairs and upgrades will too. Thursday’s solar eclipse in Cancer begins a new chapter regarding rebuilding and replenishing.

      June 21 - July 22

      A new reality is setting in. Appreciate the fact or not, it is time. To a large extent, it is long overdue. Saturday/Sunday the flow is good. Venus in Virgo, starting late Monday, puts added attention on the shortages and blanks but it is also a positive transit for healing, corrections, upgrades, and repairs. Next Thursday’s eclipse places you at a milestone threshold.

      July 22 - August 22

      The end of the workweek keeps you going strong and timing it right. You’ll shift into low key Saturday/Sunday, and still make the most of it. Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter are on the move as of Monday/Tuesday. Next Thursday’s super new moon eclipse puts the focus on sorting out what’s real, what’s viable or useful, and what needs to be reworked.

      August 22 - September 22

      It’s time to hit the refresh button! Venus in Virgo, the end of Jupiter retrograde, and next Thursday’s solar eclipse set the timer switch to breakthrough/break free/bust up the concrete. It’s an auspicious moment for personal, career, and lifestyle reinvention, for getting your act together regarding health, wealth, and emotional fulfillment. Despite the limitations, how you live life is up to you. Tuum est.

      September 22 - October 23

      No matter how it frees you up, something inadvertent or unexpected on Thursday paves the way for an improvement. Monday begins a major move-ahead week. Next Thursday’s solar eclipse can mark a milestone passage or a special anniversary. It’s rinse yourself off and build it better time. The eclipse moves your career or personal life reality to a timely (or overdue) next level.

      October 23 - November 21

      A fresh try or creative solution could do the trick Thursday/Friday. Spontaneity is the way to play it. The weekend can slow you down, but not by much, and likely in the best of ways. As of Monday/Tuesday, you’ll hit an activity or good-idea upswing. Wednesday to Friday, retrace your steps. A revisit or rethink sets you up for an evolutionary leap.

      November 21 - December 21

      Venus in Leo ends on Monday, but you’ll continue in good grace as Venus in Virgo makes favourable contact with Uranus and Saturn through the end of next week. The reality is shifting. Jupiter and the super solar eclipse on the go set up an auspicious backdrop for a new/reparative/restorative inner and outer life chapter to begin. It’s nesting time for some!

      December 21 - January 19

      Saturn and Uranus will maintain a strong working relationship for the next couple of months. There’s no better time than right now to go exploring, to try the new you on for size. Venus in Virgo, starting late Monday, helps you to spot a bargain, advantage, niche, or flaw and to top up on what’s missing.

      January 20 - February 18

      Mars in Aquarius continues on the backtrack, but as of Tuesday, Jupiter in Scorpio resumes forward motion. Along with the rest of the stellar deck, the week ahead is a productive one for uncovering what needs to be addressed and put to bed. Thursday’s solar eclipse begins a next-phase correction, heal it, fix it, get to work on it cycle.

      February 18 - March 20

      Overall (and despite it all) you’re in good shape. On vacation or not, Thursday’s sun/Jupiter and Sunday’s sun/Neptune set you up to max out on the best the stars have to offer. Venus in Virgo and next Thursday’s solar eclipse set up an auspicious backdrop for matters of the heart. An important reconnect or turnaround can be made.
