Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): While money may be tight to start the month, and there may be challenges when it comes to love, you may find that almost everything else is in divine alignment, and that there is a strong foundation being built for what the future holds, so it would be wise to stay the course, and to focus on the business of being you. It would also be wise to consider making small adjustments when it comes to interacting with your friends and social circles because there are subtle opportunities available to you for prosperity and expansion, but only if you change what is necessary. As the rest of the month moves on, you may find things become more and more challenging, especially as it relates to your approach to problem solving and decisions based on previous life experiences. It would also be wise to channel your energy into productive ends, otherwise the extra energy in the air may manifest as accidents and challenges.

Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Social circles, groups of friends, and the opportunities that come with them may be a major theme at the start of July, so it would be wise to hit the ground running in order to catch these before they fly away.

With the arrival of the middle of July, you may find a lot of energy is in the air for you to capitalize on, but that love and money may be tight, so it would be wise to tread lightly, even though you may have the desire to go full steam ahead. During the last half of the month, you may also find unexpected blessings and opportunities come your way, especially if you focus on creative problem solving solutions.

Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Tensions and personal challenges may be more common than exceptional during the first half of July, so it would be wise to proceed with caution, and to address what needs addressed with an open mind. You may find there are tensions present in the home life and regarding the immediate family, and that there are challenges when it comes to your personal relationships and circles of friends. As the month moves on, you may find things lighten up quite a bit, and that the tensions that were present in the home life have now dissipated, but that it would still be wise to tread lightly when it comes to your friends and personal relationships. You may also find that if you can apply your creativity, you can seize several hidden and subtle opportunities that are brought to your door to seize before Mercury goes retrograde in August.

Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): While there may be challenges regarding money and love at the beginning of the month, you may find that the overall tone of the first half of July is one of optimism, good fortune, and all things beneficial, especially as it relates to your friends. The home life may take a lot of your attention and emphasis, but if you handle this with care, you may find some unexpected good things get uncovered. As the month progresses though, you may find there is a lot of tension in the air, and that things are getting tense for various reasons in a lot of various life areas, so it would be wise to do with this time period what you can. You may also find that a large part of this time has to do with striking the balance between what is best for you, and what is best for everyone.

Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): July may start off right out the gate with a major focus on the home life and all things related to close friends and family members, so it would be wise to keep your schedule loose and flexible, and to focus on those life areas specifically. You may also find that love and money are two areas that are flowing along very smoothly, to the degree that you may not even notice it. Interestingly enough, you may also find profound breakthroughs of emotional and spiritual healing during this time, as well. As the month moves on though, you may sense a strong shift in the air for August. You may also find that challenges arise when it comes to love and money, especially having to do with personal communications.
