There is a certain cultural pressure (in North America, anyway) to treat the summer months like they should be nothing but fun in the sun -- which is, of course, as good an idea (and just as ridiculous) as mandatory goodwill at Christmas. Venus and Jupiter will be hanging out together in Gemini all this month, though... so perhaps there's hope for a July Funfest after all. That, and a lack of dramatic eclipses and such improve your odds of a fairly peaceful month. That is, unless that Uranus retrograde happens to hit any major placements in your chart (around 8 degrees of the Cardinal Signs).
Having said that: you can expect many of your new agreements and communications to go a bit haywire during the second half of the month. Mercury goes retrograde in Leo on the 15th, and stays that way until August. Mercury in Leo doesn't have a brilliant reputation in the first place for its organizational skills, so make sure you double-check those important e-mails before you send them. Then double check again. Then: sigh, hit send, and pray something else doesn't go wrong. One observation: Mercury retrograde in Leo often carries with it a potential for those impromptu drunk-dials to someone from your past, or from those people. Either way, you might want to turn off your phone before you have that third margarita.
ARIES: Saturn is beginning its final run through your 7th House (partnerships). Any choppiness you've experienced in this department in the last couple of years should be approaching its climax. Start planning now for when the committed relationships start to improve for you in the Fall. Brace yourself for a collection of minor annoyances clustered around the 18-20th.
TAURUS: Money! Ha! Sweet, precious, filthy lucre! Look at it! Mountains of gleaming gold and silver and big stacks of bills! Okay, now... time to wake up, Taurus. That big mound of bucks is both coming and going this month. Whether your balance sheet ends up in the red or the black by month end is going to be up to you and your self-disciple. Work out your finances in advance (around the July 3rd Full Moon) and you should be all right. The temptation to impulse-buy may be too strong for you to resist.
GEMINI: Come on, Gem: you know that the last month has been entirely too much of a drag, despite Venus and Jupiter having been in your sign. The brakes are off, this month, and having a good time and getting what you want should be much easier. Dust off your hopes and aspirations for your love life, and convey what you want to your partner. Or, maybe get a new one. Either way, the mood is a bit bouncier now than it was last month.
CANCER: There is both a New Moon and a Full Moon affecting your Sign this month... not to mention a birthday recently or upcoming. With both that and Saturn still annoying your home base, and Uranus going retrograde up in your Career House... well, it should be eventful. Expect major changes, and expect them (ultimately) to be for the better. Above all else, with Venus and Jupiter in your 12th House, try to avoid undue suspicion and insanity. Ha! Like anyone can avoid their own insanity!
LEO: Nice kitty. Easy there, big fella. That's right... you're having a good time, I know, I know. But we mustn't play too roughly with the others... especially since Venus and Jupiter in the Third House are making you more talkative than usual, and that Uranus station will only fuel that. The problem is: you have the words, but you need to do more editing.
VIRGO: Is this all that there is? Is there nothing more? All of human life is an attempt to discover the hidden meaning of life, or perhaps to impose order on life. That's great and all, but the mysteries you uncover this month are more likely to be projections of your own fears than to be actually true. You've got great analytical skills, Virgo, don't get me wrong... but those skill just might take the month off. More fun, less analysis please.
LIBRA: With Mars moving into your Sign, you may find you've finally got the momentum to deal with a lot of the issues that have bubbled on the back burner (or remained out of reach) until now. Combine that with the philosophical mood Venus and Jupiter have you in, and Mercury in your 11th, and you might find that your personal connections to others have clues to resolving your issues. Socialize and smile... you've earned it.
SCORPIO: Honestly, Scorpio, I wish I had better news for you. Then again, I don't have all that much bad news for you either, except that most of this month will largely be a collection of minor errors and nuisances. The Sun is passing through your 9th House and giving you big ideas, but the practical circumstances may not allow for real progress. File your Big Ideas until next month, when the path will be a little bit clearer for you.
SAGITTARIUS: GOOD NEWS: This month, it's not just about how you play the game... but who you play it with. Jupiter in your 7th is setting the stage for a lot of potential good clean fun... or whatever kind of fun you were seeking. Good news: Venus is there too, fuelling the fun times and sweet words. BAD NEWS: You're kind of a charmer even at the worst of times, but this month check your local laws to make sure polygamy is allowed before you turn it up too much, okay?
CAPRICORN: Ever heard of "carpal tunnel syndrome," where your hands get numb if you do too much manual work? This month you may be the discoverer of "Capricorn tunnel syndrome." In other words: "I'm working myself to the bone and I really don't see any progress, so I think I'll just scream until I go numb." Don't worry... you aren't digging yourself into a hole, you're just laying the foundations for a more successful Fall season. But until then, yeah... it's mostly just a hole.
AQUARIUS: Happy, happy, joy joy! Most everything in the sky is on your side this month (other than that Full Moon early in the month). Yes, that's right: not only will you have lots of opportunities for socializing and good times, your workload may actually lighten up enough to get some use out of it. Mates and partners may be a little confused and/or suspicious of your words and motives... but once they learn to ignore that and dance to the same beat, things ought to be fine.
PISCES: You may be suspicious that there is a force field around your home, and that the further you stray from it, the more you will be exposed to the deadly radiation emitted by other's people's issues and complaints. Strap on some lead shielding and get out there, though. You can't hide forever. Okay, sure, you can TRY to hide forever, but eventually Life will kick in the door and come get you. Make the first move and address the issues others throw at you head-on... but wear gloves and a mask just to be safe.
