The Sun whirls through your 4th house this month bringing focus on home, real estate, and home-based ventures.
The desire to spruce up or organize home may be strong at this time. This can be an amazing time for researching big design, building, decorating projects, and doing basic maintenance, repair and easy to change sprucing. I recommend that you thoroughly explore my Mercury and Venus retrograde resources linked at the bottom of this blog before implementing any major, expensive, or hard-to-change design projects. If you have to do work that is expensive or harder to fix, we have a beautiful window opening towards the end of July and into the first week or two of August where there is more clarity and flow for the bigger things.
This is also a fantastic month for cozying up at home. A fun project at this time is to do some Feng Shui treatments to your home. Deep cleaning, clearing clutter, and reorganizing is also in great alignment now.
Since the Sun lighting up your 4th house also means your family sector is lit up, if you are traveling this month, it is likely be to visit family or to a place that was or feels like ‘home’ or you may have family come visit you.
Family fun could enter center stage. Equally as likely could be family drama. Tread lightly on trigger topics with family and feel into doing work to dissolve your own triggers.
Topics of home, homes and housing will likely be very hot at this time. Life-changing events may be in store regarding these topics.
If you have real estate investments or are wanting to sell or buy a home, this month will likely bring much activity in this sector. Big news in these departments could come in now.
The 4th house is also the sector of childhood psychology, so things that happened as a child that are affecting your current situation (like patterns in relationship or elsewhere, that recreate circumstances that made you feel the same way you did when you were a child). The Sun in this position can light up things that are right and can also make more clear things that need improvement. If important actions have to be made working on the inner planes, there is much support at this time. If you feel ready to stop the patterns that have been holding you back, you can find great resources and make great headway now. Inner work is awesome at any time this month.
Diving deep into research about your ancestry, genetic testing, and anything else related to the past and your family carries great support now.
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 Taurus Horoscope is more relevant for you.
