The Sun brings warmth and focus to your 6th house this month bringing your attention to order and organization.
Streamlining your schedule and improving time management are great areas of focus at this time. Working smarter instead of working harder will carry better outcomes now and strategizing ways to do this can be very fruitful at this time.
Notable occurrences at the office could come up and for both those who are self-employed and those in an office or other employment setting. Issues or opportunities with some link to the past are more likely now.
Employment may be a hot topic at this time. If changes or uncertainty come to your work place, hold open the idea that any changes that come now, even if they feel unwelcome, could place you on a path for greater happiness and fulfillment in the longer term. Your resourcefulness has a chance to soar tremendously at this time and will be amplified the more you focus on it.
Clearing clutter and bringing coherence to your outer and inner realms will be time well-supported at this time. Something fun you can do is play my “Ten Things” game. I created this to help me clear clutter. Every day for a certain amount of time I committed to in advance (1 week, 1 month, etc.) I would make the agreement with myself that I would just have to deal with 10 things that were sitting around out of place. What I found (as you may find) that once I got started (which seems to be the hardest part), I would go well past dealing with only 10 things as momentum was built from the minimum commitment. This is a great exercise when you feel unmotivated, overwhelmed, or are crazy busy 🙂
Speaking of ‘exercise’, the Sun is accentuating your house of exercise and other health regimens this month, too (also 6th house affairs). This energy will likely highlight exercise regimens, diets, practitioners, treatments, routines, etc.
New health issues or ones from the past may resurface now or become more obvious to give attention to. You may make some important health discoveries or find solutions at any time this month. This is a time when diagnostics and other things to get down into the details of your health, healing, and exercise and diet regimen come into the forefront.
The 6th house also rules pets and some other animals so you might find yourself focused in that area of life. A pet may need some attention at this time or you may have more time or interest in focusing attention to your furry or feathered ones.
July brings the third eclipse (of three in this cycle) plus Venus retrograde post-shadow period going until the very end of July 2020, AND Mercury retrograde June 17 – July 12 (with the pre-shadow transit starting June 2 and running after its direct movement on July 12 through July 31), plus a massive amount of emotional water energies combined with the drive for forward movement from Venus and Mars in Air and Fire respectively, it will be another action packed month.
The effects of Venus retro trail off as the month reaches the end but are still present as themes in a more diluted way. Venus rules love, beauty, money, design, self-esteem – so LOTS of area affected by this transit! The lingering retrograde energies bring things on the topic of Venus back from the past into forefront, both blissful and challenging things can float back into focus to be worked with. You can see more about Venus retrograde in my video on the topic and my blog series. Here is my Venus Retrograde written version of the video with additions and updates I have made over time of people asking questions on the topic.
Mercury rules communication and transportation, which also cover large sections of our daily experience. You can understand this transit better by watching my video on how to make the most of Mercury retrograde. Expect many changes to plans and sudden opportunities all month from this transit. Also common is a highlight on mobility, transportation, communication, and devices used for these purposes. It is a great time to wrap up loose ends and follow drive to connect with people, ideas, and places from the past.
The Lunar Eclipse at 13° of Capricorn on July 4-5 marks the end of the 2 year cycle of Capricorn/Cancer eclipses that started mid-2018. Many themes of home/housing/real estate/family/mother figures and work/employment/business/
I love the time from July 22-28 for anything important: launches, big decisions, contracts, moves, and large purchases. It is the most clear will have the stars for things like this until the end of the year/early 2021.
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.
