We begin the second week of July with Mercury in Cancer making a trine to Jupiter in Pisces. There has never been a better time to plan, book a business or leisure trip, or engage your creative side. Venus and Mars meet in Leo on the 13th, which can ignite your passions. Two aspects are opposite on the 15th.
There is a trine between the Sun in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces, encouraging your intuition and creativity. You must use the compassion that the aspect brings to you. The wounded healer, Chiron, will enter retrograde in Aries on the same day, until December 19th. In the coming months, you will be confronted with past hurts and traumas.
You should be compassionate with yourself and take time off if you need it. Furthermore, you may work too hard to avoid past hurts from surfacing. Retrograde is the time to sort things out and deal with them. If you do not already work with a therapist, you might want to consider it.
On July 17th, when the Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn, you may achieve new success. You will also be inclined to set new goals. You may feel extra competitive and envious right now, so you want to be careful not to let this consume you. We will see how the rest of the signs do this week.
Aries – This week, you are creatively energized, but you will quickly face a problem where you will have to speak your truth. That won’t be easy for you. You might feel threatened by a competitor. You can use your improved intuition to determine the best course of action this week. The Seven of Swords tarot card comes to you this week, so you will want to watch your back because there are others being sneaky with you.
Taurus – If you invite colleagues over to your house for drinks, the energies will be with you. As with Aries, you may feel threatened by someone you perceive as your competitor within your network. Even if you feel like looking down on them somehow, you must avoid being antagonistic. You should study their techniques and incorporate them into your own. The Hierophant comes up for you this week which means to play by the rules even if you feel threatened in some way.
Gemini – This week, you will discover what makes you tick as you are moved in a way you never expected. In addition to being helpful to your business, the secret tactic may be exploited by your competitors at your expense, so you won’t want to share it. You’ll know if you want to give even a hint away. The Seven of Wands tarot card shows up so you will want to do what you can to protect what is yours.
Cancer – You will be compelled to investigate a topic of interest that has nothing to do with your work. You can take a leisurely course on it on Udemy so you can learn more about it. Towards the end of the week, you can expect some power struggles, which are either career- or business-related. The Six of Cups comes up so you may want to go back to a hobby from your childhood to help bring you balance.
Leo – The stars indicate that you will be able to develop new relationships and potentially make new business contacts this week. Towards the end of the week, however, you might start to worry about your schedule. You may be taking on more than you can handle at the moment. You may be able to eliminate or delegate something. The Two of Pentacles comes up for you this week which means you must look into multitasking efficiently and prioritizing.
Virgo – Choosing to turn down others’ requests for favors will be your biggest challenge this week. The ability to say “no” is essential to maintaining your boundaries, so you can live a peaceful and fulfilling life. When someone asks you to do their job while they are on vacation, it is polite to politely decline, rather than allowing guilt to convince you to take on more work. The Hermit, your card, has come up several times for you and it came up again. That means you must do more reflection on why you have the need to do some people-pleasing so you can maintain your boundaries.
Libra – Your work at work will become more creative. You will feel that you cannot win in the end. You feel like others judge you harshly for things you cannot control, and you also feel underappreciated for how much work you put in and how much more you do! Because you don’t like conflict, you tend to be passive-aggressive. You will need to be careful with that. You have the Ten of Wands, so there is something that is making you feel burdened, and it could be extra responsibility or you are burdening yourself in some way. You need to figure out what needs to be done so you can lighten your load.
Scorpio – It is still an ideal time to find ways to relax after a hard day’s work. You will also feel more creative and intuitive. This week, you will likely feel compelled to dig deeper into a situation based on its more challenging aspects. You will feel an intense desire to unravel certain mysteries, and the energies are available to help you discover the answers you seek. The Ace of Wands comes up for you, and that means you will begin hunting for something based on your intuition. Go with it!
Sagittarius – This week you can expect some good news concerning work. Due to your challenging energies, you may also be tempted to get involved in an adventurous activity this week. That is a great way to get rid of frustrations and tense energies. The Ace of Pentacles comes up which suggests a small amount of money could be coming your way.
Capricorn – Your attitude toward your income, debt, and money will change for the better in the coming months. Your generosity will grow too as a result of these changes. End of the week, you’ll be forced to examine your ego due to some power struggles. The reasons why you are not always responding constructively to difficult situations need to be explained if you are doing so. The Six of Pentacles comes up which means you will want to donate some money or time to something that is important to you so you will feel a sense of relief.
Aquarius – Your creativity is going to be intense this week, and you will also be thinking about how to acquire more money using it. Upon reflecting on who you are over the last year, you will realize that you need to break more bad habits in order to have a better week. The Eight of Pentacles is what comes up which suggests you will focus on honing some skills which is a good idea to do this week.
Pisces – There will be fewer difficulties breaking bad habits this week since the early part of the week is favorable. You can even start a new project at work if you have the time. At the end of the week, you will be asked to examine your power struggles and control issues. You need to resolve those issues or work on them continuously to ensure the success of this new project. The World comes up which suggests you will successfully complete something this week that you have worked on for a while.
This week, Cancer will get the spotlight, followed by Leo the next! As you go through the remainder of the week, pay attention to those things that have been problematic.
