July 2024 Overview

This month is full of opportunities to take care of yourself emotionally, prioritize taking care of yourself, and express yourself. The potential for creativity is poppin’ and everything points to a breakthrough. Whether that means you finally break out of a creative block or you recognize an emotional pattern holding you back, the stars are aligning to bring you the necessary info and motivation to help you take your next steps.

We kick off the month deep within Cancer season, a time that’s all about family and home, sure to unearth some hidden aspect of the past that needs your attention. Cancer’s watery vibes encourage a deep dive into the root source of our feelings, nurturing ourselves and those we love the most. This is your moment to create a cozy sanctuary—one that tends to your physical needs and soothes you emotionally. Be sure to surround yourself with people and things that make you feel safe and cherished.

You can expect your intuition to be beyond accurate with the Sun in Cancer. Your instincts are sharp. Trust your gut feelings because they’re guiding you to what truly matters. Things that don’t fit will simply fall away. Spend time with people you love, prioritize self-care, and don’t be afraid to be vulnerable. You need this to keep it moving, healing, and growing towards the life you want to be living.

Our New Moon in Cancer falls on July 6th, inspiring fresh, emotional beginnings, especially regarding your home and emotional well-being. This could be an awesome time to connect with your mom since many of these astro transits point to healing the inner child or your deeper past. The Moon is at home in Cancer and can represent your relationship with her.

New Moons are the best time to set intentions, and in Cancer, your best bet is to set intentions that revolve around nurturing yourself, healing, and pushing yourself to grow emotionally. Consider what makes you feel loved and secure, and set your intentions accordingly.

Now, don’t freak out, but it’s time to be fearless on the 15th, as Mars, our planet of action, drive, and ambition, conjuncts Uranus, a planet of rebellion and sudden changes. This transit can feel like a burst of revolutionary energy, and it has the potential to create positive transformation. I suspect this will significantly impact us as a collective but still affect us individually. Stay grounded and avoid being overly impulsive while still trusting your gut.

This transit urges us to all step out of our comfort zones and pushes sudden insights, unconventional solutions, and big ideas. Break free from the norm and embrace bold, innovative action. This is the perfect time to take risks and explore new territories. How boring is convention, anyway? Sure, sometimes it’s safer to avoid rocking the boat, to feel normal. This is not the time to be “normal,” though. The big challenges of the world require mavericks. It’s not always the safest bet to stick your neck out and push for a solution outside your comfort zone, but the safe option is not always the right thing. I don’t know about you, but I want to be a maverick.

On the 21st, the Full Moon in Capricorn illuminates the sky, spotlighting our ambitions and long-term goals. Capricorn’s earthy energy is all about structure, discipline, and running up that metaphorical hill. If there is something that you’ve been working hard towards, this Full Moon just might be the moment you see the fruits of your labor.

But remember, it’s not just about the destination. Be mindful of living in the moment and reflect on your achievements, no matter how small. Celebrate your progress and use this lunar energy to set new, ambitious goals. Capricorn encourages us to be practical and strategic, so even if your goals seem like unattainable dreams, think about the grounded, realistic actions you can take to bring those pies in the sky closer.

On the 22nd, Leo welcomes the Sun home, emphasizing good vibes and main character energy. Even the most introverted and anti-social of us will feel bold, charismatic, and expressive as the Sun shines from its home. That’s why so many people find this time of year so fun. The heart of the lion is real, my friends.

So this month has some interesting juxtapositions: deep emotional explorations + creative insights, disciplined drive + all work and no play makes everyone dull. We’ll swing from the nurturing, self-care vibes of Cancer to the confident, enthusiastic Leo energy.

This month, of all months, don’t be afraid to express your truth. The stars are lining up in your favor to help you find balance between your emotional needs and your practical goals. Here’s to a month of healing, growth, and exciting transformation.

Scorpio Placements (Birthday between October 23 – November 21):

Focus on your inner workings and philosophies throughout July. You might stumble upon new information that sends you down a spiritual or educational path you weren’t expecting. Your inner landscape is ripe for exploration, and if you choose to sift through it, you’re likely to gain a broader understanding of why things are the way they are, along with the tools to change your circumstances. This culminates in a moment of clarity mid-month, especially towards the Full Moon in Capricorn. Suddenly, it could seem imperative to finalize plans or wrap up loose ends. You don’t want to move on without finishing what you’ve started. A deep dive into your psyche could lead to greater clarity and personal empowerment if you’re open to it. You just need to know why you’re doing what you’re doing.

Sagittarius Placements (Birthday between November 22 – December 21): 

You’re discovering a level of vulnerability you didn’t realize was there this month as you recognize your emotional commitments in your intimate relationships. These relationships aren’t always romantic. It could be that you share something with someone important that means more than you noticed. You didn’t even mean to open yourself up and trust this situation; it happened naturally, and that’s how you know it’s real. You have a desire for knowledge and to feel something real. Look for the hidden meanings and more profound truths in things. Something good is happening, and your evaluation of your resources pays off when you realize you have more to give after taking the power back from draining situations. Be sure to carefully consider what truly matters to you. You’re learning so much about yourself by doing this.

Tarotscopes | The Moon: A deeper, more precious meaning is hidden within everything that matters.

Capricorn Placements (Birthday between December 22 – January 19): 

Your closest allies and connections are highlighted this month, and you’re encouraged to nurture the relationships that have your best interests at heart. The New Moon sets the stage for new beginnings or renewed commitments in these key relationships. You feel fueled and empowered by these relationships to focus on passion projects, and by the time the Full Moon in your sign comes around on the 21st, you realize how significant this is for you. You are being given the space to create something. People trust you, and you are trusting yourself. Even a moment of reflection on your achievements could inspire a deeply personal revelation. You are embracing the balance between giving and receiving, nurturing mutually rewarding connections.

Tarotscopes | The Lovers: You learn so much about yourself when you prioritize the relationships that prioritize you.

Aquarius Placements (Birthday between January 20 – February 18): 

I know it’s hard for you sometimes, but this month, you must practice discipline, streamline your workflow, and focus on your wellness. Basically, you’re being required to work. We hate to see it!!!! But for real, taking the time to focus on (or initiate) healthy routines, organizational systems, and daily practices could have such a monumental impact on your life that the work is worth it. When you set the ball rolling on creating more efficient and healthy scenarios, the growth potential is wild. Sticking to your routines also gives you a sense of achievement, which you may not have even realized would feel important to you or advance your personal goals. You may need to reflect on your true values and take a deep dive into creating a routine that works for you, but this is bound to refine your life, bringing about the transformative energy that’s been alluding you. Let yourself grow and be well, even though it means you have to follow the rules. At least you get to make them.

You’re feeling extra confident about expressing yourself, and it feels good to be seen. The other side of that coin is that you are being encouraged to reignite an old passion and turn it into something real. Perhaps it wasn’t ready before, or you just weren’t ready to share it with the world, but this month is the perfect time to put the plans in motion to take it off the back burner. You may feel inclined to put yourself out there in a new way. Whether it’s publishing something, telling someone how you feel, asking for what you want in your career, or something else, you’re able to articulate your dreams this month. Now it’s time to align your daily routines with those dreams and take action. You’re not too shy to put your money where your mouth is, but this time, it’s especially emotional and so personal that its expression is connected to your spiritual growth.

Tarotscopes | The Magician: You’re taking a dream and making it into something real. The key to bringing it to life is sharing it with someone.

Taurus Placements (Birthday between April 20 – May 20): 

It feels like you’ve been in a period of introspection and self-reflection, and Cancer season is encouraging more of that. While your focus is turned inward, reflect on your emotional foundations. Thinking about what makes you feel emotionally supported and why will help you see how to focus on enhancing your peace and stability moving forward. You’ve been so introverted lately that you may not have realized how hard you’ve been working. This month’s Full Moon in Capricorn on the 21st puts work in harsh relief, as you either see the results of your hard work or you see where you may need to make adjustments to your career path. Pay attention to where your energy is going–are your relationships and commitments reflecting your values?

The sparks of new ideas are flying everywhere for you this month!

This month’s New Moon on July 6th allows you to set powerful intentions related to your financial security and self-worth. As you gather these insights, you may feel inspired to take short trips or adventures to explore new ideas and engage in stimulating experiences that inspire you. Partnerships are the focus at the Full Moon on the 21st, bringing a business or personal matter to fruition or a conclusion. You’re ready to release it and move on to the next level. Let your natural curiosity and ability to strike while the iron’s hot lead. Meaningful discoveries are on their way.

Tarotscopes | The Chariot: You are the only person who can tell you what to do. You know when to hit the gas and when to pump the brakes.
