Were you struck by cupid’s arrow, or are you the one holding the bow? This month, you’ll be on both the giving and receiving side of romance when Venus (the planet of love, beauty, and money) glides into Virgo, your opposite sign. Existing relationships are about to level-up, so don’t be surprised if you’re suddenly inspired to make a major commitment. But don’t forget, Pisces darling, partnerships shouldn’t just be a remedy for loneliness: Bonds are serious business.
On Thursday, July 12, a solar eclipse in Cancer blankets the sky. Solar eclipses are new moons with a kick: These lunations are all about beginnings. Likewise, July’s solar eclipse kicks off a new lunar cycle on the Cancer-Capricorn axis that will last until January 2020. In your chart, this eclipse series is all about creative expression. Mid-month is the perfect moment to launch a new artistic endeavor, so don’t be afraid to transform.
It’s not easy for Pisces to conform to societal structures. After all, within astrology, Pisces symbolizes the ocean — the formless, vast abyss filled with mysteries and wonder. But structure doesn’t need to be constricting, and on Friday, July 22, when the sun moves into Leo, you’ll discover new ways to create healthy, sustainable systems. For the next few weeks, the sun will pass through the area of your chart linked to organization, routines, and daily tasks. How can you infuse your values into your calendar? Time is the most precious resource, Pisces love, so make sure you’re using yours wisely.
Speaking of which, brace yourself for some slowdowns and delays when Mercury — the planet of communication — begins its retrograde cycle on Thursday, July 26. Although the messenger planet’s backward glide is a wonderful time for reflection, it’s not exactly ideal for calendar management. Mercury retrograde abides by Murphy’s Law, so through August 18, it’s best to expect the unexpected.
July concludes with a lunar eclipse in Aquarius on Friday, July 27. Lunar eclipses occur when the sun and moon are in direct opposition, a phenomenon that temporarily turns the moon a tawny, red tone. This lunation, fittingly titled a “Blood Moon,” is directly linked to the eclipses that occurred earlier this year (January 31 and February 15, respectively). Think back to what was occurring in your life at that time: professionally, romantically, and emotionally. Don’t be surprised when these themes begin to resurface towards the end of the month.
So, what’s the best way to manage this eclipse? Enjoy celebrating you. Ciaté London Mermaid Glow is a must-have for ethereal Pisces. This soft, rainbow highlighter creates a silvery sheen with micro-pigments that is guaranteed to dazzle.
