July. Whats not to love? Before you think too long about answering that question, wait to see what the July 2021 horoscope has in store – and it may be a surprisingly romantic month for some of you with Venus and Mars cruising together through dramatic Leo. After the busy skies of the past few months things may appear to calm down this month, however, we need to look under the surface a little as most of the ‘big planets’ are retrograde and, this month, we may find ourselves dealing with some unfinished business.
This month has all the signs of being sunny on the surface – but there may be some thunderstorms as the month rolls on. This could also be an emotional month with the New Moon in Cancer as we get together with family and friends we may not have seen for ages. However, the Full Moon in Aquarius at the end of the month strikes a darker note as it is close to Pluto in Capricorn – and the debris from last year’s outer planet transits through that sign may still need to be cleared away – especially as Pluto is retrograde.
So, it seems we need to make hay while the sun shines. Make the most of the good times that may be heading your way this month – as it may not be all sweetness and light. As usual, you may wish to read the July 2021 horoscope according to your Sun sign or Rising sign – or both.
July 2021 Horoscope: Aries
The July 2021 horoscope opens with the Sun shining on your home and family life – and that’s where a lot of emphasis will be this month as the New Moon shows there is potential for making a fresh start for some of you in the domestic arena. For some of you that may mean a big event, but being an active soul who is easily bored, you may simply want to try something new in the kitchen, or buy a new barbecue, or refresh the house or garden.
That could be time and money well spent, as Venus and Mars hanging out together in friendly Leo show that it may be party time for you – and we know how you love a good celebration. Whether it’s a long planned family gathering, or a spontaneous party with some friends and neighbours in your yard (socially distanced and observing the rules of course) it may feel like the pick me up you’ve been needing for a while.
Make the most of this time as the storm clouds may gather towards the end of the month. The Full Moon suggests you may need to accept some tough changes in your career, or your marriage or you may have a difficult brush with the authorities in some form – but that may be just what you need. Some things may feel extremely difficult – but there is huge potential for coming to terms with the past and taking control of your future. You may end the month in a different place – and feel better for it.
July 2021 Horoscope: Taurus
For you Taurus, the July 2021 horoscope shows a relatively comfortable month. Over the last couple of years, contrary Uranus has been causing some radical alterations in the way you approach life. Are you getting used to the lightning bolts that seem to be all too present in your life? Whether the answer is yes or no, this month you may be able to accommodate the pace of change more easily than usual – and that’s a surprise, as change is not something you’re good at.
The New Moon suggests it may be easier for you to chill out this month, as you seem able to come up with creative solutions to any stresses that have been affecting your home and family life. When things are okay on the home front, it’s a lot easier to deal with the bigger things in the outside world – especially if they have been causing you some issues. You’re not usually one of the world’s worriers – and maybe the best way to stay that way is to focus on the things that matter most to you – and ignore the rest.
By the end of the month, however, that difficult Full Moon may cause you have a major review when it comes to your beliefs or opinions about someone – or something. Its light shines on an important matter that you may need to look at in a new way and though that may give you a few more shocks and surprises, it may also get you out of the rut that every Taurus tends to fall into far too easily. Check your baggage into the left luggage locker and let life take your forward.
July 2021 Horoscope: Gemini
Still having sleepless nights Gemini? Your July 2021 horoscope suggests things may ease a little this month as Venus and Mars dancing in Leo are promising you some interesting opportunities to meet people and have some fun – you may even be the party organiser. For single Gemini people there could even be the hint of romance. Will you meet someone special? Who knows – but after the drag of Mercury retrograde in your sign last month, you will feel flirty, attractive and ready to charm all you encounter.
The New Moon in Cancer may give you the opportunity to discover exactly what has been making you feel so jittery of late – and that’s a good thing because you have had too much preying on your mind. You’re not usually one of life’s deep thinkers, so anything that helps you resolve a few things without burdening you with guilt or responsibility is fine by you. Beware, however, that ignoring responsibilities could be all too easy this month.
By the end of the month, the Full Moon in fellow air sign Aquarius, may reveal just where you need to develop your understanding of something called ‘how the world works’. You may discover you have avoided one responsibility too many – and that recent Mercury retrograde may have left you with a few unpaid bills. A new approach to your finances may be the message of this month – you can’t rely on charm alone.
July 2021 Horoscope: Cancer
Many of you will have your birthday this month, Cancer, and the July 2021 horoscope suggests that this month may be the beginning of something new in your life – and not just your age. You may start to feel like you need to re-appraise your place in this world. You’re an accommodating soul who likes to please people, and it’s too easy for you to overlook the need to see life from your own perspective. You don’t have to agree with other people all of the time.
Venus and Mars in your neighbouring sign Leo will be a real confidence booster, because you’ll feel like getting out there and having a good time, especially if you’ve felt restricted of late. You’re not the rebellious sort, but you really need a change right now – and that can include changing the people you hang out with. You’ll also be inclined to splash out on things you really love – perhaps a little more than usual – and the ‘more’ may include the amount you spend too.
By the end of the month, however, that Full Moon in Aquarius may be making you feel a little less bold. There may be a few things closer to your heart that need your attention – especially if you have been letting a few things slide. That’s especially true in the relationship department and, after a month when the focus has been on you, you may find partners are demanding. You’re going to need to focus on the things that matter – and working out a new set of relationship priorities could be necessary at the end of the month.
July 2021 Horoscope: Leo
Leo never needs an excuse to be romantic, and with Venus and Mars conjunct in your sign, your July 2021 horoscope suggests that this could be a great month to impress someone you need to impress – whether it’s a romantic partner or not. All encounters, both work and personal, are well starred this month as you will be looking good and feeling good. Being confident about how you present yourself is always a good thing – and this month you will attract admirers and good fortune because of your positivity. You feel good and it shows.
The New Moon in Cancer signifies a new emotional cycle for you. If you have been experiencing some emotional upheavals, this New Moon will help to soothe your soul as the useful trine to Neptune pours some oil on troubled waters and makes you feel emotionally secure. As a fire sign you have a lot of energy to use up – if you’ve been losing sleep because you find it hard to switch off? This New Moon will, I hope, give you some peaceful nights.
You may well need them because, by the end of the month, the Full Moon in your opposing sign of Aquarius shows that issues with a partnership may lead to a major upheaval in your work-life balance. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the Sun moving into your sign later in the month puts a focus on new things in your life. So, if you need to restructure your daily routines because of something new? Embrace the change.
July 2021 Horoscope: Virgo
For you Virgo, the July 2021 horoscope suggests fun and romance may be something that have been put on hold for a while. Maybe you’re away from the one you love – or maybe it’s simply not your priority at the moment. Either way, you may be feeling that your summer of fun has been postponed indefinitely. You may find that your travel plans are changed at the last minute. If that happens? Your Virgo patience will mean you get there in the end – all may not be lost.
The New Moon in Cancer signals a new phase in your friendships and social life. You’re a loyal person and usually happy to go with the flow – but this month you may find you have a different perspective on life. Your concerns may be with the wider world – and there may be issues that you feel deeply affected by or decide to become involved with. If something affects your social conscience, it could make an impact on the way you look at the world – and the way you see your future too.
By the end of the month, The Full Moon signals a major shift in the way you organise your life. If you feel that something has been missing from your work and daily routines than you may re-discover that you – a Virgo – actually get great satisfaction from having your life under control. Whether you devise a new exercise routine, or simply get your work commitments re-scheduled to improve your work-life balance – you will see those changes as a great improvement. Allow yourself to smile once more – you deserve it.
July 2021 Horoscope: Libra
As a Libra you prefer life to be in a state of equilibrium. The July 2021 horoscope suggests the month may be more fun that you had hoped, as Venus and Mars in Leo signify that your social life will be rather rewarding this month. If you’ve been working hard recently, or feeling life has passed you by – then this month should remind you that the party is not yet over. However, watch out for things getting a little tense at times – you may feel like letting go, but other people close to you may not want to be burdened with picking up the pieces.
The New Moon in Cancer signals a new moment in your career or working life. It may show that the time is right for you to start working out what’s important to you in life. We all need to work out a game plan and decide what our priorities are. It would probably be a good time for you to do that, as you may still be having to deal with some uncertainty about your direction of travel. You can’t continue to ignore the issue – which you may have ben doing for some time.
By the end of the month, the Full Moon will be making you feel more confident – enough so to make a major change in your home and family life. This may be because of major changes in a romantic relationship or a change in your financial circumstances. It’s not necessarily a bad thing however, as the signs are that it will be creative change – and, if you’re honest with yourself. perhaps it’s been long overdue.
July 2021 Horoscope: Scorpio
For you Scorpio, the July 2021 horoscope suggests a month where your career could be a major focus of your attention. Venus and Mars in Leo suggest that either your efforts may be rewarded this month, or you decide to make more of an effort to make an impact on the world. This could be a good strategy as whatever you do this month it’s likely to attract attention – so let’s hope that will for all the right reasons!
If things go well for you, this could explain why. The New Moon in Cancer, a fellow water sign, shows you may develop a changed outlook on life this month. Scorpios are not naturally over-optimistic, but the July 2021 horoscope suggests this may be a time of new opportunities for you – particularly if you’ve been feeling the need to spread your wings. Partners may surprise you by being more encouraging than you imagined they would be – or you may meet someone new who is helpful to your cause.
By the end of the month, you may need all the help you can get as some difficult news may rock your world. Maintaining your stability and staying grounded will be important to you – and you may need a complete re-think about how you achieve that. The things you’ve done in the past to hold things together simply may not work this time. However, you’re good at digging deep to find the cause of any problem – and digging even deeper is what you may need to do right now.
July 2021 Horoscope: Sagittarius
Sagittarius is the eternal optimist of the Zodiac, and with Venus and Mars in Leo, the July 2021 horoscope suggests you’re going to exactly that this month. Why? Venus and Mars in Leo are giving you something to smile about as you have the opportunity to expand your relationships, move any romantic involvements onto another level and – best of all – the world is looking well-disposed towards you. Things are falling into place in your world – so make the most of it while it lasts.
The New Moon in Cancer underpins this positivity as it gives you the space to get your head around the things you need to do to get yourself back on track. It’s easy for Sagittarius to wander – and if you’ve felt ‘off-course’ for a while, this month you may be able to make the emotional adjustment you need to realise that things really are okay. Sometimes the thing we need to do is simply turn the page – and this month you may do just that.
By the end of the month, the Full Moon will give you a few things to think about. It’s okay being forward looking but you need to make things work on a practical level too. This usually involves cold, hard cash – and you’ll be thinking about that as the month ends. If you have talents that will grow your cash flow, now is the time to unearth them, blow off the dust and put them to good use. Self-development often has to pay for itself – and you could get a bonus if you focus on that.
July 2021 Horoscope: Capricorn
Capricorn is the common-sense sign of the Zodiac and the July 2021 horoscope suggests that you may need to call on your sensible side over the next few weeks. Venus and Mars in Leo are causing you some disturbance as they arouse some deep emotions in your normally down-to-earth soul. The problem may be passion – whether you’re aroused by someone – or something – it will seem all-consuming. My advice? Go with the flow and enjoy it – it’s a thing of rare beauty when it happens.
The New Moon in Cancer – your opposite sign – may bear some of the responsibility for this as a new phase is starting in your relationships. Whether it’s romance, business – or a partnership of any type – it will be all too easy to think what you want to think or hear what you want to hear. Obviously, things tend to work out better if you can keep your feet on the ground, so try and do so (and as a Capricorn it’s easier for you than most people) and you’ll find it easier to deal with any sudden surprises.
This advice also applies when it comes to dealing with the Full Moon at the end of the month. As I mentioned earlier, this could be a tricky one. Don’t be surprised if you feel furious around this time. You may discover that someone has been trying to undermine you in some way. This may be related to your finances – so watch out for any kind of fraudulent or criminal activity. This is a time your good sense could pay dividends.
July 2021 Horoscope: Aquarius
Single Aquarians, prepare to couple up! Okay, life’s not that simple, but with Venus and Mars conjunct in Leo – your opposing sign – now is as good a time as any, as you are definitely going to be the romantic flavour of the month. The snag? You’re not really the romantic type – and not all of you are single. So, if business or professional partnerships are more your thing, this month is also a good time to enter into agreements to everyone’s satisfaction.
The New Moon in Cancer would certainly back that up as it marks a new phase in the re-ordering of your work-life balance. Cancer is an emotional sign – and you, Aquarius, can be remarkably stubborn. If you’re hanging on to a bit of emotional junk – then let go as it will be relatively easy for you to do that this month. I say ‘relatively’ but try your best as you will feel able to release your creative spirit and feel confident that you are doing the right thing in life if you do so.
By. the end of the month, the July 2021 horoscope suggests that you may be glad you started on the road to letting go of any emotional baggage. The Full Moon in your sign suggests you may be able to achieve closure on a matter that has been causing you concern for some time. If it was a painful matter, (and Pluto’s position suggests it may have been) you have my sympathy. Whatever the issue was, you are now in a position to make a fresh start – so take charge of the situation and move on. It’s all you can do.
July 2021 Horoscope: Pisces
For you Pisces, the July 2021 horoscope suggests you’re feeling happy with your lot in life. Venus and Mars in Leo are making your daily life a pleasure this month. It doesn’t take much to distract you from your chores and responsibilities – and this month you’ll be relieved to learn that the distractions are plentiful. You feel happy, healthy, and life is good – what more could you ask?
The New Moon in the fellow water sign of Cancer marks a phase of renewed creative activities and good times for you this month. It’s going to be difficult for you to take anything too seriously – and that’s how you like it. You also seem to have no problem finding people to help you get through the day – and you’re also willing to help others, as long as your offer of ‘help’ allows you to express the more playful and creative side of your nature.
However, life is not all play this month, Pisces. The Full Moon at the end of the month may come as a sharp reminder of that. The problem is that sometimes you can be your own worst enemy, and when that happens it’s usually because you’ve chosen to ignore something that really should have had your attention from the start. The result? You end up being confronted with a mess that could have been avoided. You may have upset a friend or acquaintance – so eat some humble pie and acknowledge your guilt.
