|For Virgo, the month of July will focus on your friendships, group associations, your hopes and wishes as well as your daydreams. It’s about how you function within a group or how you chair a committee, or mediate a meeting. It’s about your ideals and your personal goals, objectives that are not concerned with career but through which you can grow through interaction with friends. It’s your social life and who you socialize with. You’ll be passionate about your fellow man and what you can do to make things better for others. Is there a cause you’d like to participate in that you know will help others? You may also need your friends around you more during this month or find that they are calling you to come out and join them. It’s Summer in the Northern hemisphere so it’s the perfect time to get out and participate in outdoor activities with others. You’ll enjoy it as you usually do around this time of year. There will be lots to talk about and your thoughts will eventually shift from your work to more fun and personal topics. You might even begin putting down to paper those objectives that have future potential for you. You’ll be delving into your subconscious to tap into your creative source. Your dreams and your unconscious desires will surface and with Jupiter in this part of your chart this past year, has allowed you to tap into your more compassionate side, giving back to others selflessly without expecting anything back. You may have been going through a kind of spiritual renewal and getting ready for the abundance that is coming your way when Jupiter enters Virgo in August.
It’s the time of the year when you put to use the things you have learned and experienced during the past year. You are approaching the final chapter of your birthday year and this is where you get to share with your friends, enjoying the fruits of your labour with others, and getting in touch with your daydreams and your deepest desires.
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 quite uncomfortable.
Venus retrogrades in your 1st house of Self, image, masks, and appearance. You’ll be reviewing how you come across to other people, the kind of people you’d like to attract will determine how you feel about this. It is not a time to make any changes but rather to think about it, to analyze how you would prefer to come across to others if you’re not happy with the way you are now. If you are thinking of changing your hairstyle or closet, it would be better to wait until September when Venus goes direct again.
On the heels of Venus, Uranus goes retrograde in your house of joint resources, intimacy, and financial support, public monies, and values involving partners. You’ll be reassessing investments and joint ventures, or delving more deeply into these matters as this is the house of analysis. Uranus is the planet of change and independence, so you will be seeking more independence through investments. You may either find yourself with a windfall or inheritance that will help with your plans for more independence. Inner self-discovery will mark this transit and with Uranus in retrograde motion, it may become even pronounced and obvious.
It’s a month focused on the security you feel and find through your association and collaboration with others. It is the support you receive from friends and groups and your contribution back to the friends and groups you associate with.
