July Monthly Horoscope July 2018 ~ Eclipse Season

July 01 2018

July is the season of surprises, as this month kicks off the second wave of 2018’s eclipses with two of summer’s three transformational moon moments arriving July 12 and July 27. But while the pace picks up from the eclipses, five planets will be retrograde throughout July, a time to slow down, retrace our steps, and handle unfinished business. All month long, energizer Mars, structured Saturn, dreamy Neptune, and transformational Pluto are in reverse, putting our mojo and motivation in low-power mode.

Venus enters Virgo on the 9th of July which can be a time when we express our love through practical means and gestures, running errands, doing detail work, or just being there for our lovers. Love needs to make sense and have a purpose with Venus in Virgo.

Jupiter comes out of retrograde on July 10 in Scorpio where big plans could pick up steam. We can choose to use this energy to tap into our inner wealth and spiritual power for the good of all. At its most negative extreme, greedy lust for outer wealth and power can lead to the exploitation of others.

Eclipse season begins on July 12, when a partial solar (new moon) eclipse falls in caring Cancer on July 12. This indicates some sort of crisis with self-esteem, a relationship or an event. A solar eclipse opposite Pluto urges you to transform for the better. To evolve your soul so that you may live a better life and experience more satisfaction. It is most common that this would occur through a close relationship, such as a family member, close friend or partner. 

When Leo season begins on July 22, we can expect to see some showy ego trips but hopefully also more heart-centered and magnanimous moves. But Mercury the planet of communication, technology, and travel will turn retrograde in Leo from July 26 to August 19, which could flare up drama.

The full moon on July 27, 2018 at 4° Aquarius is a total lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse is a precisely aligned, supercharged Full Moon. The Earth’s shadow falls between the Sun and Moon, and what is typically the brightest night of the month is veiled in darkness. As the light goes out, our shadows, secrets, feelings that seem too big or scary demand attention and expression. Changes that have been brewing behind the scenes are catalyzed into action, and we often see significant completions. This Eclipse is mainly influenced by Mars, making this an emotionally challenging eclipse. Mars anger and frustration could easily turn to reckless actions because of a harsh aspect to Uranus. This represents a significant turning point within the Mars in Aquarius retrograde cycle.
