This 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. Unresolved issues in relationships may come back into the forefront as may people from the past. Fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged. New and important relationships could also come in at this time.
The relationship with self is the primary relationship from which everything else extends and this time can offer great opportunities to evaluate inner issues honestly and motivate to take action on shifting individual patterns that can have profound effects on relationship patterns with others.
This sector that focuses on relationships, also includes the finding of perfect helpers. Anything from finding the perfect medical practitioner, therapist, electrician, accountant, administrator, has more promise now. Any type of professional that could help you in any area of your life, has an increased potential to be drawn to you right now! Wonderful synergistic arrangements hold great promise now.
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, or make personal beauty changes. This could be a great time to clean up, clear out, and beautify your living and/or work space.
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 also can be a great time for entertaining, and a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings. If the circumstances prevent in-person connecting, virtual friend or group connections could be how the energy manifests.
July carries us into a break from the intensity of the eclipse cycles. This break continues through August. By now, the changes that came from the April and May eclipses are starting to work their way into your new normal. Integration and advancement on the themes brought up by the eclipses will continue.
July has a very notable transit ~ Venus officially going retrograde. We started the shadow period of this transit towards the end of June and now in July, themes that started to sprout then are revving up.
Venus rules money and finances, love and relationships, beauty, aesthetics and design. Expect these topics to come up in noteworthy ways.
The retrograde tends to bring things back from the past, so maybe money owed to you will come in, or a business idea you started working on before will come back into focus. In love, maybe a previous love will return, or zest comes back to your current relationship.
Sometimes in a retrograde you get the chance to un-do something that was done, like forgiveness for a past hurt, re-doing of a design element that has been calling out for adjustment, or healing a physical (or other) scar.

Personal planet retrogrades are is one of my areas of great expertise. You can also see more in my book, Planetology ~ How to Align with the Natural Rhythms of the Universe.
Strong Cancer energies will bring focus to home, family, housing, and real estate. Also a common topic at this time is home-based work or business. Emotions will likely run high either through conflicts or wonderful family experiences.
Strong Leo energies all month bring zesty creative potentials. Romantic potentials, fun and frolic, focus on children, hobbies and pleasure, are all increased in potential as three planets (Venus, Mars, and the Sun) carry Leo flair.
Mars moving into Virgo brings focus on details and a discerning eye for streamlining work and improving productivity.
