Can you believe it’s July already, Libra? Your partnerships matter a great deal to you, and you prefer to keep the peace. But at the end of the day, confrontations are unavoidable and on July 1, as Mars in Aries faces off against Pluto in Capricorn, you’re going to have to address some issues. Power struggles and toxic behaviors are unearthed and require handling with care. You may find conflict with a partner, a close business contact, or a BFF. Maintain your boundaries and call out any unsettling behavior. On July 4, Mars, the planet of motivation and frustration, enters Taurus. As Mars moves through a very private part of your chart, you may be more called to face some of your trauma, fears, and anxiety. This transit that asks you to be honest and vulnerable with yourself. On the same day, Mercury enters Cancer and delivers news about your career or public reputation.

The Full Moon in Capricorn on July 13 brings the attention to your family. Matters that have been brushed under the rug and skeletons you’ve tried to hide in the closet come out to play. This is a time to confront your shadows and generational patterns from the past that are ready to be broken. This Full Moon will be intense, but there is promise of hope and healing on the other side. On July 16, the Sun and Mercury sit at the same point in the sky, both in Cancer. News about your career or public image comes through. Write down any significant ideas or conversations that take place today—it can lead to massive change down the road. Venus, the planet of blessings, enters your house of career on July 17. This could mean a promotion, award, or recognition is on the way. Keep shining bright!

Mercury, the planet of the mind, enters Leo on July 19 and you're focused on your hopes and dreams for the future. Your friends may also need some more of your advice. When the Sun enters Leo on July 22, a wish could be realized, or someone from your network could connect you with someone who can help make one of your dreams a reality. You’re feeling more social right now. A beneficial partnership—romantic or in business—arrives on July 24 when Venus and Jupiter, the two luckiest planets in the sky, link up to deliver blessings. Your luck could arrive in the form of an email, or perhaps someone at work realizes you’re way overdue for recognition. You've earned it!

The New Moon in Leo on July 28 is the perfect time to call in manifestations for the year to come. Where do you want to be one year from now? This Moon will be mingling with lucky Jupiter, making it the perfect time for manifestation work. On the same day, Jupiter goes retrograde in Aries. This may have you thinking about the impact your closest connections have on you. Are your beliefs aligned? Are your relationships mutually beneficial? Are your needs being met? A friend or colleague may reveal a shocking piece of information on July 28 as Mercury in Leo forms a square with Uranus in Taurus. This information could surface something buried within your psyche. Don’t be afraid to do some psychological excavation—it’s all part of the healing process.
