Remember when astrologers told you 2020 would be crazy? Well, this year isn’t disappointing. As your humble astrologer, it seems like each month, I’m calibrating my cosmic interpretations to a completely different reality. And as the first sign of the zodiac, I know you’re totally fine flying by the seat of your pants—but that doesn’t mean you haven’t been suffering from whiplash.

This month starts off (you guessed it) intense: The final eclipse on the Cancer-Capricorn axis occurs at 12:44AM EST on July 5, perfectly corresponding with the holiday commonly referred to as “Independence Day.” Likewise, this Capricorn lunar eclipse is an excellent moment to consider your personal relationship with autonomy. Since this eclipse series began in July 2018, which aspects of your identity have transformed? Are you actively pursuing growth? Perhaps even more importantly, how have your professional goals evolved? Remember, Aries: Success doesn’t happen overnight—it’s a lifelong process. Although we live in a culture that emphasizes immediate gratification, this lunation invites you to think further into the future. Fundamentally, you’re building a legacy. This is major!

Thankfully, after three-weeks of technology meltdowns, frustrating misunderstandings, and (so. many.) lost packages, Mercury goes direct on July 12. So, if you’ve had a tough time finding your footing, it will be much easier to find solid ground now that Mercury Retrograde is finally over. Good riddance!

On July 20, the Sun and Moon will meet in Cancer, forming a dark, velvety New Moon. Wait—what? DIdn’t these two celestial bodies just meet in Cancer? Why yes, young grasshopper, they did! The Sun and Moon (in astrology, these two are called the “luminaries”) connected in the sign of the crab on June 21, which formed a solar eclipse. This time, however, their union forms a nice, easy New Moon—without any of the volatile eclipse energy. In other words, we are officially stepping out of eclipse season! For you, Aries, this lunation will encourage you to make peace with your current realities. While you still have so many things you want to achieve, you’re also doing a terrific job navigating these challenging, unprecedented circumstances. So be sure to honor yourself with some extra TLC under this sky: You deserve a pat on the back.

Finally, a new astrological season begins on July 22 as the vivid Sun darts into Leo’s domain. Happy birthday, Aries! Just kidding—this is obvs not your birthday season. But as the Sun cozies up in a like-minded fire sign, you’re feeling a surge of electric energy. Simply put, you’re ready to have some fun! For the next few weeks, find new ways to sprinkle a little light in your life. Tap into your passions, your artistic talents...even your childhood self! What activities brought you joy as a kid? Whether you’re bouncing on a trampoline or doodling in a coloring book, give yourself permission to play. While joy may seem not to make much sense at this moment, that’s exactly why it’s so essential you explore this emotional modality. At the end of the day, you find progress through creativity. This month, discover what you truly need in order to feel happy, healthy, and fulfilled.
