A moody month all around, July is looking messy but with a straight-forward end that is bound to mix up all our emotions. The summer season may be well present with a tough 6 months behind us and an even more uncertain future ahead, but we’re tackling it full frontal by celebrating the Cancers in our lives, followed by Leo as we enter the month of August.
To start the month, we had a lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 5th which helped us let go of the things and people that no longer serve us and make room for all that matters. Mercury in retrograde still very much clouding our communications all throughout July 12th, which will give you the perfect opportunity to take a step back and not act on your emotions. Learn to listen more and speak less. Watch out for the new moon on the 20th and then patiently wait until you move into Leo season with a vibrant start.
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what July has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
