If you also know your Rising Sign/Ascendant, also read the horoscope for that one as it will bring an additional piece to your total astrological picture. If you were born towards the end of the your birth sign, experiment with additionally reading the sign after yours and see if it carries more or additional relevance 🙂
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. This could be a great time to find your forever friend, just make sure that the animal you choose is a perfect match for your energy level, mobility, time, and budget as motivation and energy levels may start to wane after
We shift out of the heaviness, high emotion, and confusion of Venus and Mercury retrogrades and the eclipses by August. While some eclipse-related news may still come in, this month is more about finding “the new normal” in the world and in our individual experience. Many themes of home/housing/real estate/family/mother figures and work/employment/business/
This month will be awkward because of an abundance of 150° angle line-up’s with the stars and there are more than twice as many challenging aspects as sweet ones. But even so, Mars continuing direct movement through its native sign Aries will bring momentum and help gel into place options or new directions that came from the eclipses. Use well the momentum especially towards the earlier part of August as Mars will start to lose its thunder and shift into retrograde phase deeper daily through August until its official retrograde starting September 9 and going through November 14 (with the post-transit shadow period going into the beginning of 2021). (I still love best 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).
Two fierce aspects involving Mars and Saturn, and Mars and Pluto, will bring Mars retrograde themes in with a bang. Be extra careful with life and limb this month. Understanding the energy of the impending Mars retro will help to direct you towards activities that will roll better with the themes of this time. You can see my Mars retro blog here and my Mars retro video here.
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 Aries Horoscope is more relevant for you.
