This is another significant month, Sagittarius, in which you remain concerned with the deeper meaning for your life and your career choices. You are coming off the recent Mercury Retrograde time of questioning nearly everything, and yet are still seeking how to simultaneously make sense of your proclivities for logical practicality together with what is purely instinctual within you. You are above all focused on your own arc of developmental transformation. Partnership in your life continues to play a role in enabling you to take your power, and your full creativity, in spite of whatever might be the blocks and the blind spots that interfere. If inner wounding comes up in this regard, the undigested residue of early childhood trauma, this is best viewed as in response to your higher self’s intention for greater self-acceptance in these areas and ultimately for healing. As you move forward, it is vital that you have faith in your process and in the internal moral compass that you inherently possess. And as well for the deep dive to the inside of your psyche that you seem to be committed to making.

The New Moon in Cancer from a few days back, on June 28th, sets the stage for the thirty-day lunation cycle and the July month to follow. This signals the start of a new wave of intimate and business partnerships. There is a transformation in the air as well from the highlighted position of Pluto in your values sector. As you evolve, you could be looking for the people who can validate you, while also leaving you the space that you need to do your own thing. Your own creativity is very significantly invoked also, with Jupiter in Aries, prominent in the New Moon configuration, being in perfect square to the New Moon, and located in your self-expression sector. Your ruling planet Jupiter has been transiting through the sign of Aries since the month of May could be fueling a desire to infuse your life with more meaning and experiences. July is an exciting month for romantic scenarios and projects that require your creative input. However, the placement of the New Moon itself indicates that you may be called to negotiate your agreements with others. You may not be happy with the same old scenarios these days and you could be on a quest to bring more joy and opportunities into your life. Creativity, romance, self-expression and whatever else arouses your passions could feel like a featured topic for you as July gets underway.
Also as the month begins, Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn culminating on the 1st which may highlight changes that you are requiring be made within yourself with regard to a unique talent that you have. You may try to better understand a position of power or have something that someone needs implying an opportunity to negotiate a situation.
Mars enters Taurus a few days later on the 4th, which brings attention to the health and routine sector of your chart while Mercury entering Cancer on the same day highlights your partnership agreements. It may be easier to lean on others for support at this time than try to do everything on your own. The arrangements you have with others might get clarified and it may be easier to reach a consensus now than heretofore.
On the 7th and 8th of July, leading to the month’s second weekend, the Sun in Cancer squaring Chiron in Aries could bring up fears or you could feel misunderstood. You may have doubts about a commitment revealing insecurities but also the opportunity to overcome them. It may be best to take things in strides at this time especially if you don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle.
The Capricorn Full Moon arrives on the 13th bringing up further issues of self and others. This timing is powerful, and could perhaps help clarify a tangled scenario. Issues of self-worth might come up, or there may be a financial element that could get solved helping you relax into what is possible. Venus in Gemini comes is in a supportive trine with Saturn in Aquarius in this Full Moon configuration You may have a tendency to overthink or feel introspective and moody especially as Mercury also squares Chiron. You may need help communicating your needs with others in a way that ensures that both parties are getting what they want.
Even though there may be a few challenging aspects here, you should have plenty of opportunities to find ingenious solutions for what arises in the timing of the Full Moon, as long as you are willing to address what is bothering you. Mercury meets the Sun in Cancer on the 15th and 16th which could serve to clarify an agreement or bring emotional insights.
Venus enters Cancer the next day, the 17th, and will continue to emphasize negotiations with others and as well your evolving values. There could be serious attempts on your part to delve more deeply beneath the surface for what truly moves you, and this could come up even more forcefully a few days later, with the Last Quarter Moon of July 20th that emphasizes making a definite departure from a previous way of looking at things and trusting yourself for the answer to the important questions around where you are headed.
Mercury enters Leo on the 19th and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd which has the potential to feel like a breeze of fresh air for you. This emphasis of planets in Fire signs in the latter part of July could help shape the latter half of July as different from the first half, allowing you to gain perspective as to where things are heading. You could feel a greater sense of agency returning.
The last week of July is filled with helpful aspects to help you gain traction. Negotiations with others continue to be highlighted, along with your ability to take care of yourself resisting compromise that does not serve you, especially for things that feel important. This is indicated by Mercury in Leo square Mars in Taurus on the 25th and 26th, which could bring out your stubborn streak.
The Leo New Moon takes place on July 28 in your vision sector, also called your sector of Higher Mind. This late month timing might find you ready and willing to move on to broader pastures.
