|For Aries in July, the spotlight is on your home and children. Your home and family dynamic will take centre stage with a lot of activity, conversation and discussion taking place within your home. There will be an energetic and passionate mood in and about your home or within the family dynamic. Your parents will feature and if they normally live far away, you may find that they are visiting or you are hearing from them a lot more this month. There are a few oppositions between your home space and your career this month and that’s most likely because you are going through some major transformations in your career. The changes taking place in your ambitions and public life are slower moving but when there are aspects to faster moving planets, it’s like a spotlight shining on it. In this case, events that are taking place at home (parents) or concentration on the home will bring some challenges to light. There will be a power struggle between these two areas of your life. If you’re part of a family owned business, this is where you might feel some tension. It may be that you’ve been transforming the way you do business and gaining more power in that sphere and it is affecting your home life.Your romantic life is gearing up with the planet of love and abundance in that area of your existence. Your children or issues surrounding them are playing a big role in your life this month. You may even be thinking of having more children, or you may have added to the family this year. You have been much more generous to your children this year, and your relationship to your children or persons younger is harmonious and loving. You may even receive a gift of love and wise words from them. If you’re single, you may fall in love this month as the planet of love is in you house of true love. If you don’t meet anyone new or already have your true love besides you, you will find great rewards from your creativity and from the things that give you the greatest pleasure. This is also the area of personal projects or leisure time.
There will be a lot of chatter, information and discussions about the community, neighbourhood (maybe you’re looking to join another community or neighbourhood and want to move), your parents will bring their fair share of information and opinions to the mix, and it may all be related to finding the best possible environment for your children, or for your creative inspiration and resourcefulness.
Venus and Uranus are retrograding this month, joining Saturn and Pluto in reverse motion. Retrograde periods sound scary but only because Mercury retrogrades affect us so strongly. As with all retrogrades, they ask us to rewind, review, and reassess the area in which they are slowing down and the matters concerned. It’s almost as though you will be able to experience those areas in your life in slow motion. If all is good, it will feel really good, if it’s not pleasant to you, it will feel a little uncomfortable.
Venus slows down in your 6th house of work routine, assignments, personal habits, health, and being of service to others. This influence will magnify the things that are not as steady and will have you working on fixing them. Are others considerate of the time you spend at work or on projects? Have you asked for it? Are you enjoying the work that you do, and are you asking for more of the kinds of assignments or projects that you like to work on? These are the kinds of questions you will be asking yourself. Do you contribute enough to the daily chores that need to be done around the house or at work. With Venus in this area, you become acutely aware of the things that make you feel and look good about your environment. Your work space may be a mess, this will be the time to get things in order to create a harmonious space.
On the heels of this Venus retrograde comes the Uranus retrograde in your first house. Your unconventional ideas or personality traits will become more evident during the latter half of the year. You’ll be even more adamant regarding your personal freedom and independence. You may even be more susceptible to behaving erratically with frequent outbursts during this time. Your needs will change constantly, and you may have some serious a-ha moments or inspiration that come from an unexpected source that will affect you deeply.
This month is about action taken in your home, such as renovating to increase the value of your home, to taking care of or helping your parents and your attitude to your parent or the foundation of your home base. It is about giving back to your home, your parents, paying homage to your heritage and to building a solid foundation or framework within your home. Your contribution comes from being of service to your parents, to the people living with you, and to a positive attitude toward the family dynamic.
|July 1-5. Interconnectivity between your romantic interests, creative pursuits or children, your current mission, your Self, your siblings, relatives or immediate environment. This first week begins with a full moon in your 10th house. You may see a culmination in your career and/or you may have reached a goal you had your sights on. This may include a project you were working on, and with Venus and Jupiter in that sphere you will probably be floating on air with all the positivity and abundance coming from it.
Look to Venus in your 5th house of romance to quell any insecurities coming from your partner with a gesture that he or she is not far from your mind.
Your current goal and mission while the North Node is in Libra is to include your partners, close relationships, or business partnerships into your life in a symbiotic way. You are naturally very independent and like to do things on your own, but it will benefit you to remember to include those close to you in your plans and activities.
An emotional reaction from friends may cause some opposition as they might want to work together with you while you would prefer to work by yourself.
They may take what you are doing the wrong way. They may have difficulty separating what is theirs from yours. Your sensitivity levels are low so take care of how you come across.
July 1. (Venus-5/Jupiter-5) You begin the week with romance, love, projects, children and an overall good feeling in your house of romance, creative pursuits, your children if you have any, and things that bring you pleasure.
|July 1. (Mars-4/North Node-7) On the same day, there may be a tad of stress in the areas of your life that have to do with your home and your partnerships and relationships. If you’re single, this may include your parents, and if you’re already in a relationship, your partner.|
|July 3. (Mercury-3/Uranus-1) Your unconventional ideas are well received by those in your immediate setting. They will be open to your ideas and thoughts. You are able to communicate your unusual ideas in a transparent and clear manner that people will be open to them.|

|July 6-12. Interconnectivity between your home, the family dynamic, your career or ambitions, your current mission, your immediate environment, and conscious decisions. This week will be quite challenging but you will have what it takes to get through it. You may want to stay close to home and spend time there but are needed to make an appearance or appearances that are career related.
This may not be felt overtly because Pluto is a slow moving planet, but you may experience an underlying feeling of a power struggle deep within you. The boundaries between your private life and your public life may feel a little blurred this week.
You tend to think for yourself and are independent but it will benefit you to learn to balance that focus by including your partner(s) and your close alliances into your plans or your life in general.
|July 6-7. (Sun-4/Pluto-10) You may feel some opposition between your home life and your public life. One area will be vying for more attention than the other and will create an imbalance that will cause some tension for you.|

|July 10. (Moon-2/Mercury-4) You may want to purchase something of value for your home or renovate or change your home in some way, and if so, this will be the perfect day to do so. Make sure to discuss your idea or thought with those who live with you.|
|July 11. (Mercury-4/North Node-7) If you did not share your idea regarding your home, you may find some opposition, not necessarily regarding the idea itself, but because you went ahead and made the decision on your own rather than involving your partner or family.|
|July 13-19. Interconnectivity between your home and family, joint ventures and resources, your career and ambitions, your creative pursuits and children, and your immediate environment.The influence of Uranus will cause you some inner tension and will create a challenge that you will need to overcome. It may be something someone says to you about your personality or how you present yourself, and this information or revelation may come from a family member, most likely a parent. Look to yourself and changing your perspective on the issue will help you to overcome the obstacle or insecurity.
You may realize what your limitations are as a result of Saturn’s influence in joint matters and ventures. Look to your dreams and personal goals, as well as what you value most and how you treat others to find the approach you need to take to overcome the limitations that have surfaced.
Even with the limitations that may come up, the energy within your home will vibrate with the positive balance of yin and yang. Discipline and structure may be weak today but you will feel love and harmony within your home.
If you have any projects at home that you would like to begin, today will be a good day to do so. Just remember that you’re not as structured and disciplined but your ideas will flow freely.
You may find this week that your needs to keep your life more private may not coincide with your responsibilities to the public, especially if you’re in the public eye.

|(Mercury-4/Mars-4) Ideas, thought processes, and plans combine well today with your high energy level.|
|(Mercury-4/Pluto-10) Parallel to this good feeling on the home front, you may also notice some opposition coming from your career, authority figures, such as parents, teachers (if you’re still in school) or from higher ups at work. There may be a power struggle to see who wins this battle.|
|July 19. (Moon-6/Venus-6) You will notice a harmonious flow of energy at work or during your daily routine. If you live at home, you may have to make some phone calls therefore dealing with others, and you will find that everyone is very helpful. You may react to a gift someone offers you at work: it may be a gesture to help you.|
|(Mercury-4/Uranus-1) It is possible that you will hear something that may be quite unconventional or it may be you who makes this announcement and it may be related to something going on at home.|
|July 20-26. Interconnectivity between your home and family dynamic, joint resources and ventures, conscious decisions, your Self (ego), and your current mission.This week you may experience different scenarios that involve joint resources. If you were in the process of dividing property, you’ll find that you are going over everything again. If you’re moving, it could be that the process is taking a lot longer than you would like.
Another take on this aspect is that you are more open to analyzing the reason why you may be putting limitations to your intimacy and to your level of interaction with others.
There will be lots of conversations, discussions, and plans being made. You may be thinking of how you would like to spend your leisurely time.
Your current mission is in the spotlight this week. Your lessons and attention should be to your 7th house of partnership, marriage and alliances, and focusing on this area will bring you rewards and opportunities.
You will also be focused on romance and the things from which you receive pleasure will be conducive to the lessons and goals of being considerate of your partners and close alliances.
|July 21-22. (Sun-4/Saturn-8) There may have been a delay in getting a loan or a payment that is owed to you, or an insurance payout, possibly related to something that is connected to your home, but you should now see that check coming in. A windfall or money owed to you may not be as high a number as you imagined it would be.|
|July 23-24. (Sun-4,5/Mercury-4,5) You will be shifting your focus from your home and family dynamic to your creative pursuits, personal projects, and children if you have them.|
|July 23. (Mercury-5/Saturn-8) Saturn retrograde in your 8th house will have you reviewing and re-analyzing the lessons you dealt with during the last 2-3 years until December 2014 in your 8th house of money (such as from inheritances, insurance payouts, loans, etc.) It is also the house of intimacy, and Mercury will have you thinking about this deeply. Have you been shying away from intimacy?|
|July 24-26. (Mars-4/Uranus-1) An unexpected surprise or situation may blindside you especially with regards to your home or the family dynamic.|

|July 26-27. (Sun-5/North Node-7) The Sun has moved on to your 5th house of true love, romance, creative pursuits and your children if you have them.You will be open to new ideas, things, and people.|
|July 27-31. Interconnectivity between your current mission, your career and ambitions, your romantic life and creative pursuits, and joint resources.This week will end the month on another challenging note. You may want to move ahead with your career and it may cause a challenge to what pulls you to your future. Your North Node is in this sector until November and will then move on to your 6th house of work and health. You may feel the conflict of interest within yourself when you turn your attentions to your career. It will be short-lived since the Moon only stays very briefly in each sector.
During the week, you may want to lighten the mood but those around you are looking for something more serious.
The week will end with a full moon in Aquarius in your 11th house of friends and groups as well as future potential. You may be looking for support from friends and group activities, or a friend may come to you looking for this support because they are going through a crisis. You may also find yourself surrounded with many people. A cause or volunteer event that you have been participating in may come to an end.
|The Moon sends positive reflective vibrations to Jupiter and you should sense a moment of gratitude for all the good things in your life.|
|July 29. (Moon-10/North Node-7) Your career, authority figure, and life aspirations may not be helpful in your quest to focus on your partnerships today.|
|July 30-31. (Jupiter-5/Saturn-8) Expansion and abundance is in your house of true love, romance, children and creative pursuits. With Saturn in your house of intimacy, commitment, and joint resources or ventures, you may find that you feel restricted emotionally and this will cause some inner tension.This influence is one that can be relieved by being active and releasing your inner stress.|
