You love to keep your mind active, and usually, that means you’re exploring multiple creative projects (or romances) simultaneously. On Monday, July 9, however, when Venus shifts into pragmatic Virgo, you focus your gaze on the homefront. Through August 6, the planet of love cruises across your chart’s domestic zone, inspiring you to invest in your infrastructure. Spruce up your home with some exciting new decor, deepen bonds with important relatives, or make that romantic commitment you’ve been desperately avoiding. When you feel anchored to reality, there is safety in your exploration; even nomads have compasses.
A new eclipse series begins on Thursday, July 12 when a new moon in Cancer coincides with a partial solar eclipse. Since 2016, the eclipses have been focused on your communication, encouraging you to find new forms of expression. Now, however, these upcoming eclipses on the Cancer-Capricorn axis will highlight another area of your chart. Simply put, Gemini love, it’s all about the Benjamins. Don’t be surprised if an exciting new financial prospect presents itself mid-month, but avoid making an impulsive decision. The sun is temporarily obscured during a solar eclipse, so we can’t always see clearly. Before you say “yes,” perform due-diligence to make sure you understand the fine print.
Leo season begins on Sunday, July 22 when the radiant star cruises into the fiery sign associated with creativity and drama. There’s a positive link between Gemini and Leo: Your quick-witted expression is perfectly paired with Leo’s love for old Hollywood glamour. For the next several weeks, your calendar will be filled with social engagements ranging from black-tie soirées to backyard barbecues, and you’ll love exploring the many facets of your personality.
But be careful after Thursday, July 26, when Mercury — your planetary ruler — goes retrograde. You’re always extremely impacted by Mercury’s backward spin, so make sure to factor this cosmic reverse into your planning. Misunderstanding and malfunctions are inevitable — but hey, if things get really hairy, at least you can blame the stars.
July concludes with yet another eclipse on Friday, July 27. This upcoming total lunar eclipse, referred to as a “Blood Moon,” in Aquarius is directly linked to the eclipses that occurred earlier this year, on January 31 and February 15, respectively. Think back to this past winter: What activities were you exploring? What passions were you fortifying? Eclipses activate the area of your chart associated with destiny, so pay extra close attention curiosities: Your hobbies may ultimately inform your legacy. Keep your spirits lifted with Jo Malone Tropical Cherimoya Cologne, a delightful summer fragrance that effortlessly captures the fun, vibrant essence that defines your spirit.
