his month is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. Friends, co-workers, clients, business partners, romantic partners or interests will take center stage.  Topics like finding clarity about where you stand with people important to you, your relationship to them, and how it is best to move forward with re-connecting, collaborating, committing, or splitting will all take major focus at this time as retrograde energies bring back issues from the past and test previous decisions and commitments.

Alternatively, fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged, as the retrograde energies could also bring happiness back from the past. Also there is a chance for new romantic or business partners to show up, but if it does in the first half or so of the month, proceed cautiously as Mars goes retrograde there is a greater chance for momentum to slow down and progress to regress.

There is pure magic available especially towards the latter part of the month.

Mars will be retrograde from June 26, 2018 ~ August 27, 2018.  The pre-transit shadow period starts May 11 and the post-retrograde shadow transit runs through October 10, 2018. Mars retrograde tends to lower ambitions and momentum so you will have more momentum in the first half of the month.

To understand Mars retrograde energies better as you move through the long influence of this transit, check out my video on the topic. Also, here is a blog version of my Mars Retrograde Do’s & Donts.

Mercury retrograde can also ‘call things into question’. Things previously set or agreed to may be tested at this time.

Mercury will be retrograde from July 25, 2018 through August 19, 2018. You can see more about how to navigate this transit in my video on the topic.

To see an extensive list of things I love for now through Mid-December 2018 when the personal planet retrogrades dominate see my blog, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades.

If new love or business opportunities come in now or for arrangements and agreements that have to be made this month, commitments could be awesome but try to lean towards the last week of the month and try to leave as much flexibility in arrangements to account for the changes that will very likely come soon, and know that the plans you make now may be shorter term than expected, or efforts may get ‘tabled’ for a time, losing steam, or be missing relevant infomation.

If a decision has to be made in the first 3 or so weeks of the month, consider a ‘bridge’ decision or agreement, where you create a temporary agreement that will be reconsidered and shifted soon.

One important note about this month is that the deepening Mars retrograde energies do not well support picking a fight or waging a war in any way.  Many fights/legal instigations, etc. instigated now do not often have as much support for the initiator. There are always exceptions to this tendency so follow your flow/intuition in these situations.

This sector of the chart also has to do with aesthetics so you may have the urge to decorate, spruce up, or move things around. This month could be great for making small purchases, and even bigger ones, especially towards the last week of the month, just make sure you can afford them, factoring in that there could be financial slow-downs ahead. If you are on a budget, into environmentally-friendly focus, or just want to incorporate bonding with your friends, or meeting new friends into your redecorating process, something fun is to have a ‘home item swap party’ with friends. Each person bringing a potluck food/drink item to share and some items from their home that they are done with. Everyone will leave from this gathering with new items without spending any money 🙂

It is also a great time for entertaining. This is a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings.

If you are self-employed and looking for more business, going back to clients from the past may be more fruitful than trying to develop new contacts but don’t dismiss anyone new that comes in either. Similarly for those who are employed, past ideas, projects, and contacts will likely have more favor. People from the past, collaborations, ideas, etc. will likely pop up out of nowhere. Also, your urge to put energy into finding and re-connecting with people from your past may be strong and well-indicated now.

We have two eclipses in July and one in August. Check out my June Horoscope for info about how the July 12th eclipse could effect your sign, my July Youtube Horoscopes to see how the July 27th eclipse could effect your sign, and my August Horoscopes to see how the August 11th eclipse may effect you. Often implications and manifestations from each eclipse can happen many weeks before or after the actual eclipse so in August, the pieces of the July eclipses could still be coming in.

If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Pisces Horoscope is more relevant for you.
