You pride yourself on practicality, but this month, let your passions be your guide. On Monday, July 9, Venus — the planet of love, beauty, and money — moves into Virgo, highlighting the area of your chart linked to philosophy, adventure, and exploration. For the next several weeks, you’ll realize that romance is all about discovery. What lessons will you learn from your lovers and friends? Relationships help broaden your horizons, so whether you’re diving into deep conversations or exploring a long-distance dynamic, don’t be afraid to begin a new journey.
Since August 2016, the eclipses have been illuminating the Leo-Aquarius axis. Now, beginning on Thursday, July 12, the lunar nodes shift into the Cancer-Capricorn sky. Simply put, Capricorn darling, shit’s about to get real. Through January 2020, the eclipses will align your current reality with your destiny, so the next two years will be defined by monumental transformation. Pay attention to what events occur mid-month: What are themes? Who are the characters? What is at stake? Write these down, Capricorn; these clues will help you identify your personal eclipse story.
On Sunday, July 22, the sun shifts into Leo. Leo’s larger-than-life energy activates a very powerful sector of your chart, known by astrologers as the eighth house. The eighth house governs sex, death, and transformation — but don’t worry, Capricorn, it’s not all doom and gloom. Through the end of August, you’ll be uncovering incredible details about yourself that will help inform your choices. During this time, you’ll realize that everything is connected.
You’ll be ready to share your discoveries with your closest companions but choose your words wisely once Mercury goes retrograde on Thursday, July 26. Miscommunications are inevitable when Mercury reverses its glide, so although you’ll be ready to express your truth, make sure your messages aren’t being misinterpreted. Remember, each person is working within their own universe, so even when you’re discussing your own realities, make sure to lead with sensitivity — you don’t want to inadvertently hurt anyone’s feelings.
Last but certainly not least, a total lunar eclipse highlights your money zone on Friday, July 27. During the final weekend of the month, this lunation (often referred to as a “Blood Moon”) will expose some major insight on your personal finances.
If your finances are not where you want them to be, don’t fret. For now, swap a costly night-out for a restorative night-in, which will help you save a few dollars and give you the opportunity to catch up on some much-needed rest. Enhance your slumbers with Laneige Eye Sleeping Mask, a smart serum designed to hydrate and depuff while you snooze — ahh, efficiency at its finest.
