*For all signs-Venus retrogrades in Leo at twenty-eight degrees on July 21, 2023, and will go direct again on September 4th at twelve degrees Leo. Venus retrogrades about once every two years, and brings with it an emphasis on lessons learned from past relationships, how you handle your creativity, and how you connect with feminine energy.
*For all signs-Neptune retrogrades at the beginning of the month at twenty-seven degrees Pisces, and will stay retrograde until December 7, 2023, at twenty-five degrees Pisces. During this time, you may find it easier to break bad habits and addictions, and this is a good time to review your personal development path.
*For all signs-Chiron retrogrades at twenty degrees Aries on July 22, and will stay that way until December 28, 2023 at fifteen degrees Aries. When Chiron is retrograde, it tells us this is a good time for inner healing, either to yourself, or to receive it from others.

Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): Communication problems with your immediate family and loved ones may bring an emotional haze to the beginning of the month, so it would be wise to emotionally detach and think through your conversations. Your creativity and good fortune may be better than ever though, so you may find it worthwhile to focus on that as a distraction. As the month progresses, it is worth noting that the emotional tension may still be there, but you can see things clearer. For the next few months, you are also coming into a period of healing, beginning the middle of July. Venus is stationing retrograde towards the end of the month too, meaning that you may find specters of past relationships of all kinds come back up to learn from and address.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): July 2023 may bring a lot of good things your was when it comes to your immediate family and home. However, there may be challenges present when it comes to your creativity or good fortune, so it would be wise to play things safe when necessary. This is a good time to do some emotional and spiritual work in general. As the month continues, you may find your health goes well, but now that other challenges have come up, especially having to do with communication and the above-mentioned creativity. You may also find that you have opportunities for growth through tradition ways, and that if you plan for the long-term, you can achieve a solid foundation to grow from. It would also be wise to watch your romantic life to make sure it stays playful and light-hearted.
(Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Creativity, romance, and
money through creative methods may all be rolling along nice and smoothly as
the month begins, but you may find it wise to make minor adjustments when it
comes to interacting with your immediate family, loved ones, and how you manage
your daily life so that you maximize your potential. As the month continues, you
may find good things continue to come your way, but that romantic liaisons from
the past come back up, or perhaps you feel the sting of an impulse buy. You may
also find it wise to watch your diet the last two weeks of the month, and to
keep your temper in the workplace. Healing may be a major theme the last two
weeks of the month too, with an emphasis on your identity and ego.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Happy birthday Cancers! This is your month to pamper yourself, and July begins with a warning to celebrate responsibly but not too much. You may also find that opportunities are there for expansion and prosperity in daily life, especially if you are consistent with your work. As the month progresses, it is worth noting that your work life may continue to roll along nice and well, as is your health, but that there is a general sense in the air that it is time to make some changes because of challenges you see on the horizon. These changes may predominantly have to do with self-expression, creativity, and romance. You may also find that around the middle of the month your wounds get activated more than normal, but over the next few months you will have time to heal them, now that you are aware.
(Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Even though July is known
as being associated with Cancer, you may find good fortune and blessings come
your way at the beginning of the month, so it would be wise to embrace the good
things coming your way. Even though there may be challenges when it comes to
prosperity, there may also be a strong sense of instant rather than deferred
gratification, so if you watch for your opportunities, you may find instant
results. As July continues, the same themes may as well, but when it comes to
romance, things may get a little weird, as Venus stations and retrogrades in
your sign. This tells us that past romantic specters may overshadow the
present, or perhaps your creativity does not produce like normal. In any case,
the later in July it gets, the more things may blossom in your favor, setting
the stage for a bright August.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): The home life and immediate family may be rolling along nice and smoothly right now, but there may be tension when it comes to spirituality and how you handle your emotions. To balance this out, you may find you are in a position to set the stage for long-term gain and growth, which also means that now is the time to focus on deferred gratification rather than instant. Your emotions may be out of sort, too, but this will change about a week into the month. As July continues, you may find your energy levels are stronger than normal, and that there is a lot more activity in your work life, which can help you seize the opportunities for long-term growth. Romance and creativity may require some minor adjustments, but in general the necessary work for those two topics may be small in the grand scheme of things.
(Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): July may begin with a lot
of challenges when it comes to communicating with loved ones and the immediate
family, so you may find it wise to allow extra time for addressing these
things. Your creativity may be rolling along great though, giving you the
optimism necessary to achieve success. As the month progresses, it is worth
noting that the good vibes continue when it comes to your creativity and
romance, and people and situations from the past may come back up to address.
Unexpected financial blessings may also come your way, and you may encounter a
string of good fortune if you listen to your intuition when taking chances. If
you’re not careful, your emotions may cloud your judgment around the middle of
the month, but this will not last that long. You may also find that the more
into the month it gets, the more your daily work life requires attention for
the sake of adaptation.
(Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Spiritual and emotional
initiations may be the theme of the month, so it would be wise to let your
intuition be your guide, and to practice emotional control. There may be tension
present when it comes to laying a foundation for the future as it pertains to
prosperity and conscious expansion, and you may find challenges present when it
comes to romance and creative self-expression. As July moves forward, a large
part of the emphasis shifts to your daily work life, and you may find that not
only are things rolling along nice and smoothly there, but there are also
opportunities for forward movement. When Venus retrogrades, you may find you
are impacted more than most signs, and in challenging ways. The deeper it gets
into July, the more you may find challenges on the horizon for August.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): July 2023 may begin with a lot more energy at your disposal than normal, and while this is generally good, you may find it is too much of a good thing, and could cause accidents or short-tempers if not channeled productively. Emotions may be out of sorts at the beginning of the month, but this will even out within the first week. As July continues, things may get strange. While overall the high energy levels continue, you may find odd occurrences come your way that have to do with money through creative projects and romance. Your romantic life may also be rolling along well, with a new emphasis on livening things up in various ways. You may also find a streak of good fortune towards the end of the month, but it may be just what you need rather than providing a surplus.
(Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Communication may be tense
when it comes to your immediate family and close loved ones, but to compensate,
you may find it wise to focus on your money and investments, as now is a good
time for future success. A lot of the tense communication fades by the middle
of the month, and is replaced with more work in your daily office life. After
the middle of the month, you may also find that more emphasis is placed on
several major adjustments that may be necessary to achieve success when it comes
to romance and mental healing. Your emotions may be out of sorts around the twentieth,
but this will fade within a week, and the lesson for that time is to play the
diplomat rather than begin hung up on who is right or wrong in any given conversation.
(Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Tension and challenges may
be present when it comes to more areas of your life than not, so it would be
wise to be adaptable, but also to be open to new ways of doing things. During
this time, you may also find challenges and present in general are the norm,
but a lesson that can be extracted from this time is to adhere to a belief and
practice, and through this devotion comes confidence and faith. As the month
continues, the tension in the air may increase, and in general it is a lot of
the same, the closer you get to August. The good news is that later in the
month it is the perfect time to reach out to your friends for support and help
achieving your goals. Playing things financially conservatively all month would
be wise to do, too. Watch your diet, as gluttony may work against your health,
and when possible, relax and take it easy, indulging in creature comforts.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring
emotions, spirituality, and creativity, may all be major themes at the
beginning of the month, so it would be wise to keep a tight hold on all of
those. You may find your ability to communicate with your immediate family and
loved ones is on point, and that if you wanted to make any changes around the
home, now is the time. Emotions may be out of sorts as the month starts, but
this will fade quickly. As July matures, it is worth noting that the emphasis
on karma and spiritual themes continues, but that a lot of the challenges earlier
in the month have faded. There may be tension in the workplace later in the
month, but this will only last about six weeks or so, and can be handled if you
put your energy into projects, rather than letting your energy dictate how you
conduct your business.
