Astrology Forecast for July 2013
For All Sun Signs ~ Typically, we progress by exploiting new opportunities and neglecting old problems and future needs. Now, the planets will let us explore new opportunities, finish things left undone and prepare for whatever the future brings. We’ll feel regret for past errors and omissions, gratitude and enthusiasm for present opportunities and concern for the future as we retake control of our life’s trajectory. Progress will be slower but more solid. That will give July its distinctive feel: hard and easy, promising and worrisome, all at once.
Sun Sign-by-Sun Sign
CANCER (June 20 – July 21) ~ A new cycle of growth and prosperity has begun for Cancerians. They will continue to sense resistance or outright opposition to their plans. However, for now, this resistance will work in their favor. The numbers on their side are growing. Cancerians will change from a lone combatant to the leader of a small group of highly motivated, resourceful allies. Opposition will only galvanize your new allies. Your shared accomplishments will provide resources for others in the shared effort to reform and improve economic conditions.
LEO (July 22 – Aug. 21) ~ Your understanding of important issues is evolving. You want to take better care of yourself, devote more time to your goals, and better express your ideals and your love for important people in your life. The planets are poised to support you in this in preparation for more opportunities to follow. You’ll need space to achieve these things. Letting yourself be rushed or crowded, even by loved ones, would hamper your efforts. Meanwhile, the planetary support would pass, leaving you to play catch up.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 – Sept. 21) ~ Despite notable progress, the status quo and the powers that be continued to resist your bid for a better life. Hope lived, but many stubborn issues remained. In July, inertia will give way to momentum. Covering the final distance, however, will require a more elaborate strategy, greater cooperation with friends and allies … and patience. You’ll need to wait while others do their part. Together, you can achieve what no one could do alone. Progress will accelerate, but it could be two years before fruition.
LIBRA (Sept. 22 – Oct. 21) ~ Everyone is happily pursuing goals that one way and another interfere with Libra’s goals. Successfully pursuing all these wonderful goals is opening rifts large and small in everyone’s most important relationships. These relationship problems, in turn, are interfering with your efforts. But you have a card to play. Your insights into those relationship issues, which flow naturally from your Libran soul, can help prevent or heal these rifts. Sharing these insights will also help you further harmonize your goals with the goals of others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22 – Nov. 20) ~ Of all the Sun signs, Scorpio is best situated to benefit from strongly positive influences now coming into effect. You’re also most likely to prevail where there is disagreement or conflict about how to proceed. If advice is needed, with your natural and spontaneous feel for everything going on, now, you’re best suited to give it. You can profit most from all of the above by actively participating in decision-making and by guiding others. These efforts will quickly raise your standing in the community.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21 – Dec. 20) ~ Both conscience and common sense have been quietly urging Sagittarians to make some lifestyle changes. Resources are spread thin. Discipline is loose. Also, although long-term financial trends look good, current spending is a tad high and could impair long-term financial goals. You are now entering a lengthy phase in which the planets will help you make all needed lifestyle and relationship adjustments. Conditions are good for mending fences with estranged or rebellious youngsters, too. You can express your love with helpful and timely guidance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 – Jan. 18) ~ Capricorns are bearing the brunt of current resistance and rebellion. Others are being empowered to pursue goals independently. You cannot have the control you feel you need. But the choices others are making actually harmonize well with your goals. You might as well have been in charge from the outset. There is an added benefit. This experience is teaching Capricorns to trust the process. This lesson will prove invaluable in the near future as Capricorn’s success comes to depend more heavily on joint efforts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19 – Feb. 17) ~ Aquarians are now uniquely well-prepared to pursue their most cherished goals, fulfill their personal commitments to society and improve their lifestyle, all in a harmonious, synergistic way. Work life will bring greater stimulation and profit. You can further the hopes you have for friends far more effectively, too. Finally, you can help smooth the way for friends coping with all that changeful, transformative Aquarian energy being loosed on the world. Financial progress will depend on partnerships with others in the months and years ahead.
PISCES (Feb. 18 – Mar. 19) ~ The planets are again reminding Pisceans that charm and graciousness are especially important. This time, they are taking a carrot and stick approach. Whenever you fail to comply, friction will increase and progress will stall, for everyone. When you comply, everyone’s goals will advance. On a deeper level, though, Piscean insights are unique; their personal emotional support has a special quality unavailable elsewhere. Withholding either will deprive others of something indispensable. Budget pressures will ease appreciably. Involvements with friends and youngsters are unusually beneficial.
ARIES (Mar. 20 – Apr. 18) ~ The bad news is that non-stop change and constant disruption will continue indefinitely. The good news is you can support and benefit from this change, now, and earn lots of social credit besides. Your hard-earned insights will help many over tough hurdles. You can be especially helpful in teaching others how to accept new and different kinds of people into their lives. You can also intercede on behalf of others facing unsympathetic authority figures. A benevolent influence is helping with complex challenges at home.
TAURUS (Apr. 19 – May 19) ~ Taureans definitely intend to transform themselves and their public identity. Social pressure is unusually intense, though. People are far more concerned with their own needs and expectations than your aspirations. They could force you back into your old identity or turn you into someone you don’t want to be. For now, it might be best to develop your strength in the safety and comfort of home. Take the outside world in small doses until the new you is strong enough to counteract the pressures.
GEMINI (May 20 – June 19) ~ Gemini’s economic situation will continue to improve. But you’ll need to invest to insure continued progress. A range of priorities and opportunities are competing for available funds. And a host of concerns further cloud already confusing trends. But you do need to invest your resources or progress will stall. The planets suggest investing wisely and sparingly. Spend on things that will increase your productivity; invest in areas with good track records. Be prepared to expand into more speculative areas as new initiatives prove worthwhile.
