July Monthly Horoscope - Virgo
Dear Virgo, starting from the 1st it might be difficult to pinpoint exactly what you want, in what direction you plan to move forward. Things will become clearer in mid-August. Until then, it’s a good period to go inwards and to invest your energy in art, meditation (perhaps tai chi or something that involves bodily discipline as well), journaling (especially for processing more difficult emotions). The Solar Eclipse on the 2nd is a moment when seeds can be sown for a new friendship, a new involvement in a group or in a social cause, a new innovative project in technology or in astrology. Maybe the project or the cause is something related to emotions, intuition or children. It’s a time when you might be challenged to express your vision and to put your nurturing qualities at work for the world, despite perceived indifference or limitations from a partner…or even from the insecurities of your inner child. It’s also a moment when you will need- and could very well find- authentic friendships, based on real emotional connections. You can be more popular than usual, finding it easy to connect to others. Stay mindful, however, of any less pleasant emotions that might need release. Whatever is new in your life, take it slow and step by step; you can steadily manifest it into reality.
Starting with the 7th, your ruler Mercury retrogrades in your house of sacrifices, suffering, art and spirituality, possibly bringing up some darker thoughts and emotions that need to be processed. Take your time to go within and know that you can slowly alchemize your suffering, Virgo, into treasures for both yourself and others.
Around the 8th, Chiron’s retrograde could bring up wounds or traumas, especially linked to shared finances, sexuality, shared energy, subconscious or occult matters. It can help to focus on building a strong sense of ego to help you be able to merge with others without getting lost, to stand on your own without too much attachment. Around the 9th, things could be tense with friends or in your romantic relationship/in your relationship with children. If there are situations where your inner child gets triggered, they could have a karmic undertone and they could be teaching you patience and perseverance in expressing your uniqueness, even if you might not always get approval or admiration from others. Around the 11th, you can express your inner light in a particularly soft and empathic way, making it more likely to be received well by friends and by acquaintances. It’s also a good time for any humanitarian project or spiritual partnership that you might want to get involved in.
On the 17th, the Capricorn Lunar Eclipse brings a moment of fulfillment and transformation when it comes to romance, children, education, creativity, possibly through a new relationship, through a transformation of your current romance, through results of a project in education or related to children or through a transformation of your own inner child. These events can seem fated and can lead you to an important renewal. Useful information can be unveiled, helping you take the next step in these areas and let go of structures, beliefs and “musts” that are holding you down from expressing your natural joy, trust, ambition and creativity. On the 18th, take advantage of a dreamy, creative, spiritual vibe that can help you continue what you’ve started around the 11th (heartfelt discussions, humanitarian pursuits), despite things feeling a little heavy; around the 21st, stay strong, yet open to change as your relationships (with friends, with lovers) could be going through some transformations. Trust that what has to stay will remain in your life.
Starting from the 22nd, you’re supported to invest most of your energy into your inner world, your spiritual and artistic interests, your humanitarian and healing pursuits. It will be an introverted month for you. Around the 25th, stay mindful of any intense emotional reactions that you might have with your family; try to see your anger and where it comes from. Finally, on the 31st, the Leo New Moon can herald that fresh start that’s been lurking around the corner all month- a new phase in your inner world, your deep emotions, your connection to the divine, your service for the world and your healing. It’s likely to be marked by an increased need for independence, especially when it comes to your beliefs and your freedom. You don’t want to be held back anymore and you might get some insights that help you on your unique path- just trust your heart and listen.
