This month is something of a conundrum for you, Scorpio. On the one hand, you are focused of career goals, while on the other, largely internal, you are questioning and wondering what it all means. The retrograde of Mercury through your tenth house of profession and outer world statement begins on the 7th, although will likely be felt much sooner. This significant transit implies that you are in an introspective mode, searching within yourself, reviewing and revising especially issues of accomplishment and outer world reputation. This is not the time to push ahead, but rather to watch and wait, paying close attention to everything that happens with your life. You possess a strong idealistic streak these days, and your values and beliefs are also up for reconsideration. Partnership continues to be variable and full of unexpected insights; deep intuition is your friend. Issues of inner wounding could come up for you, and if so, in order that you better understand yourself in the deeper layers of your psyche.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School
The month begins with a Solar Eclipse in the sign of Cancer, falling in your ninth house of spirituality and the higher mind on July 2nd. This eclipse brings with it a significant change in relation to your beliefs and ideals. It’s an excellent time to begin a new course of study, to expand your horizons through world travel, or to renew your faith, perhaps especially exploring your beliefs in relation to your upbringing or cultural and ancestral history.
Between July 7th and 9th, Mercury in Leo conjoins Mars in Leo in your tenth house of career, just as Mercury turns retrograde. Watch for organizational, administrative, or even technological changes in the workplace. Be careful of confrontations and bullying at work; this transit has the potential to easily trigger a struggle of wills and egos. At the same time, if you need to make an executive decision, course correct, or stand up for something, this transit should also give you the courage necessary to make a big change with confidence and decisiveness.
Between July 9th and 16th, the Sun in Cancer will oppose Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your third house of the mind, communication, and your immediate environment. Then, on July 16th, a Lunar Eclipse falls in your third house in the sign of Capricorn, in proximity to Saturn and Pluto. This eclipse may bring stress to relationships with your siblings, neighbors, or within your immediate environment due especially to the contractive qualities of Saturn. However, whatever limitations or obstacles you are experiencing in your life right now, perhaps especially those that are mental and emotional, this eclipse should help you recognize the need for a more compassionate and emotionally sensitive paradigm.
Between July 16th and the 21st, Venus in Cancer in your ninth house of spirituality and higher education will then oppose Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your third house of the mind and your immediate environment. This transit represents a continuation of the above energies with a subtle difference, in that Venus is now involved, so that relationship issues are likely to be an important part of this later monthly stage. The good news is that dealing with obstacles makes you stronger and builds character, in the end helping you to evolve into the best version of yourself that you can become.
Venus highlighted in your third house might also act as a healing balm after the intensity of the eclipses earlier in the month. Venus’ oppositions to Saturn and Pluto call for the harmonizing of grace and discipline intellectually and spiritually, of friendships or romantic partnerships that maintain and support one another’s differing beliefs and ideas. You may also find that certain core faith statements or beliefs are conflicting with one another quite powerfully right now, to the point where some relationships may have to be let go of. Beware of the tendency for the withholding of love or affection due to diverging beliefs or opinions, and try your best to maintain an open mind and an open heart.
Finally, on July 31st, the New Moon in Leo will land in your tenth house of career, conjoined with Venus, while both are squaring Uranus in Taurus in your seventh house of relationships. The next Moon cycle will thus immediately bring up the need for experimentation, independence, and outside the box thinking both in your relationships and at work. Your most interesting ideas are likely to be very attractive to others right now, or you may also find yourself drawn to someone or something that is exotic and inspiring. Be careful of the temptation of being provocative or rebellious for the sake of being provocative or rebellious. If you can join this energy to a greater cause or mission, you will find that your most original ideas will find easy avenues for manifestation in the world.
