July 2020 – Monthly Horoscope – with Sky Silverstone
Mar 20th – Apr 20th
Dear Aries. July is a great month for you as your ruler mighty Mars is in your sign firing you up with his positive ‘go-get’ energy. You may well be driven with a passion to get something started, re-started, or be fired up to think up new plans that move you onwards and upwards. This energy brings upliftment and positivity to your mind and existence, so make good use of it I say! The almighty Sun is walking hand in hand with the communication planet Mercury, both are energising and uplifting areas of your home, family or that brings you security in life.
However be mindful of communication problems or issues could arise in these areas, as Mercury is in retrograde till next month. These are usually minor ‘spanners in the works’ but can be dealt with quite easily through giving your full attention to your dealings with others. Lastly, please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions, thoughts and feelings, all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Apr 20th – May 21st
Dear Taurus. July has your ruling planet the Goddess of Love Venus, travelling through your house that she rules. This makes it an auspicious time to think carefully about how you can improve or increase abundance in your life and what actions you can take in order to fulfil this. All the while, the almighty Sun and the communication planet Mercury are both uplifting and enhancing your personal areas of thinking, speaking, writing, quick communications with everyone and your connections with siblings.
However be mindful of how you deal with people within these areas, because although Mercury rules this house, his energy is dampened or reversed as Mercury is in retrograde till the 12th. Mercury in reverse gear just needs a little care with communications and dealings with people otherwise July brings positive changes. Lastly please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions, thoughts and feelings, all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
May 21st – Jun 21st
Dear Gemini. July is an action-packed month for you on a planetary level as you have Venus the Goddess of Love shining her light on you as she travels through your sign. Venus is showering you with appeal, magnetism and favour from people around you. This would be a great time to ask for what you want or indeed go after what you desire, even if it’s a relationship based. However bear in mind your ruling planet Mercury is in retrograde, as in reverse gear, and this has two important areas that affect you.
Firstly, as he’s your ruler, you definitely have to take care in all areas that Mercury governs, such as communication, travel, thinking, being logical, writing, even body language is your own personal communication as all this could be misunderstood. Secondly, Mercury is in retrograde in your 2nd house of self-worth, so please take care of yourself in that regard. However, from the 12th Mercury is direct and these areas are positively fired up after that date. Lastly please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions, thoughts and feelings, all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Jun 21st – Jul 23rd
Dear Cancerians. July has very important planetary considerations that you need to take into account. Firstly Mercury the planet of positive thinking, business, travel, all types of communication, speaking, being understood and even body language, is in retrograde in your sign till the 12th. I would urge you to take care of these areas and avoid starting any new projects until well after the 12th. So after the 12th Mercury is playing well for you to achieve your personal goals, to continue to be well received and understood positively.
Secondly, the almighty Sun is uplifting you and your goals as it moves through your sign, making it a positive time to set out and go after your agenda’s and ambitions. There is a Full Lunar Eclipse in your opposite sign of Capricorn, and then there comes an uplifting New Moon in your sign on the 20th. These are energies that have the ability to bring subtle transformations for success and life changes.
Jul 23rd – Aug 23rd
Dear Leo. July has the almighty Sun entering your sign on the 22nd shining it’s positivity on your life, goals and ambitions. This would be the time to forge ways to gain success personal to you. I mentioned last month, you have 3 major planetary players, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, all in retrograde in areas of your daily life, everyday work/activities and wellbeing. Simply put, care and attention are needed to keep everything ticking over positively in these sectors of everyday living. Watch out for making mistakes or slip-ups that would later cause regret, all due to retrograding planets who create ‘spanners in the works.’
But this can be avoided with a little care on your part. Lastly, I wish to mention the planet of communication and travel Mercury being in retrograde in your 12th house of the hidden, secrets, lies and governs enemies or those who oppose you. Watch out for issues in these areas, but remember they’re usually minor irritations which iron themselves out as Mercury moves forward on the 12th. Lastly please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions, thoughts and feelings, all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Aug 23rd – Sep 23rd
Dear Virgo. July starts with your ruling planet Mercury is in retrograde till the 12th bringing up two major points for you to note. Firstly Mercury is your ruler and his reverse-gear energy can lead to different types of ‘mind fog, loss of concentration or minor mistakes. Secondly, Mercury is in your 11th house affecting your friendships, social connections, networking and humanitarian pursuits. So in these areas, the retrograde energies could lead to issues, misunderstandings via communications, writing or even giving off the wrong body language.
These are usually minor ‘spanners in the works’ and iron themselves out once Mercury is direct after the 12th. A great positive is the Goddess of Love uplifting areas of your career, reputation and social position. Now is the time to gain credit or positive responses from superiors or from those around, Venus can bring you recognition and respect for the work you’ve put into something. Please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions, thoughts and feelings, all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Sep 23rd – Oct 23rd
Dear Libra. July has a few retrogrades affecting key areas of your life and every retrograde can dampen or reverse the positive effects of the planet. The retrograde planets are Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, all reversing in areas of your home and that which brings you a connection to the roots of your life, your feelings of ‘home sweet home,’ security or the cocoon that’s around your life. These planets remain in retrograde for a few months to come. The almighty Sun along with Mercury is in your 10th house of career, reputation, respect and/or gaining recognition from something you’ve put some work into.
However, Mercury is in also reverse gear which usually unsettles the balance or throws a few ‘spanners in the works’ such as miscommunications and misunderstandings easily made through the reverse energies of Mercury. However, Mercury is direct from the 12th and shortly after there are balance and harmony in your career & reputation area. Please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions, thoughts and feelings, all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Oct 23rd – Nov 22nd
Dear Scorpio. July shows an astrological firing up of sectors of your daily work (not your career,) everyday routines, fitness and wellbeing. This is all through fiery Mars travelling through this house. You may well feel driven to throw yourself into one or more of these areas, for example; creating a new routine for your day, or a new regime for your fitness. 3 major players Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in reverse gear in areas of your 3rd house of communication, writing, speaking, quick connections with people around you and your siblings.
All the while Mercury who governs this house is also retrograding till the 12th thus creating a double whammy of ‘spanners in the works, of communication, travel and balanced thinking. Problematic outcomes can be avoided by taking care with your words, travels and life in general. Avoid starting any brand new projects or making major or life-changing decisions until well after Mercury goes forward after the 12th. Lastly, be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy that’ll be pushing emotions, thoughts and feelings, all from the to the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Nov 22nd – Dec 22nd
Dear Sagittarius. July has your ruler Jupiter in retrograde and remains so till September. This has 2 important meanings for you. Firstly being your ruler you may feel that your decision-making or logic is slightly off-balance, nothing major to worry about but care is needed. Secondly, Jupiter is a planet that normally expands, uplifts and increases success, but in retrograde it may well do the opposite. So in reverse gear in your 2nd house, I would suggest that you take care of planning ahead and having unnecessary items until Jupiter is direct in September.
All the while the almighty Sun and Mercury are travelling together through your house of jointly held intimate connections. However, Mercury is also in retrograde till the 12th. This requires you to take care of all your communications or dealings within these sectors. Avoid starting anything brand new until well after Mercury goes direct on the 12th. Lastly, be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy that will be pushing emotions, thoughts and feelings, all from the to the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Dec 22nd – Jan 20th
Dear Capricorn. July is a month to check and check again on the finer details of anything. Be it what you’re dealing with or wishing to pursue. This is due to the fact that your ruler Saturn being hand in hand with Jupiter and Pluto. They are all retrograding in your sign, so possibly throwing a few ‘spanners in the works’. You have the transformative power of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse also in your sign on the 5th. I urge you to keep a reign on those random emotions and feelings. On top of that, the almighty Sun is walking through your house of relationships. Alongside the communication planet, Mercury, also your contracts and your dealings with your outer world.
This uplifts attracts and draws success to you in relationships and connections with others. Although this is positive for your existence, care and attention are needed on your part as Mercury is retrograding till the 12th. Double-check your words before saying something, watch how you’re projecting yourself, watch for thoughts and ideas becoming entangled and confusing. Mercury simply throws a ‘spanner in the works’ but if you’re aware and taking care all will go well, and harmony is restored after the 12th as Mercury starts to go forward.
Jan 20th – Feb 18th
Dear Aquarius. July has the almighty Sun, along with the communication planet Mercury uplifting and energising your everyday routines. You may well be driven to change, amend or throw yourself into more of these areas. However be aware that Mercury is retrograding till the 12th, so possibly creating a little drama, miscommunications or confusion. All that’s needed is your care and attention with all areas of your life. Harmony is restored a little after Mercury goes direct.
On a positive note, the Goddess of Love, Venus, is in her home of your 5th house. This showers you with magnetism to attract flirtations, romantic endeavours, fun, and enjoyment of time with others. As it’s her home, this brings you advantages of her showering you with great energies. That makes it a great time to gain favour from others with little effort. Please be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy pushing and amplifying emotions and feelings. All coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Feb 18th – Mar 20th
Dear Pisces. July has your ruling planet Neptune in retrograde for quite a few months to come. This may create a little imbalance in the harmony of life but is generally manageable. The almighty Sun is in tandem with the communication planet Mercury, both are energising and uplifting. Especially in the areas of romance, lovers, flirtations and enjoyment of life. However, be mindful that Mercury is also retrograding making it a time to take care to avoid miscommunications and timekeeping. Plus keep an eye out for minor mistakes that could be avoided.
Mercury moves directly from the 12th and energies balance out shortly after that. On a positive note Venus, the Goddess of Love is enhancing areas associated with the home and family. That which forms the roots of your life. This may push you to spend time with family or make positive changes to your home. Lastly, be mindful of the extra pow-wow energy that will be pushing emotions, thoughts and feelings. It’s all coming from the Full Moon on the 5th as there’s a Lunar Eclipse with it.
Blessed July to you all.
