You have another amazing month on the table, Gemini ! You have survived the retrograde of your ruler, Mercury, and the introspection and even the questioning that the Retrograde period brought, over all of June, and that is a gift that still keeps on giving for the first full week of the current month. Your values and beliefs have been part of the shake-up and are only now settling down, winding up by the Cancer New Moon of Friday, June 9th. You have your career persona, which is thriving, and your private self-definition which is somewhat at odds with the figure that you project with your public presence, and, as well, even further toward the inner, the deep intuition that is sizzling right now and that has brought you many new ways of seeing when you can have the courage to close your eyes to take advantage of that species of inward wisdom, speaking softly and telling you true. It would be nice to frame a new alignment of these differing perspectives, an integration that would be more than the sum of its parts, although you may wish to reflect that everything worth its salt take time to arrive. You can continue to give this process the support that it needs by staying flexible and admitting to the fundamental fact of the matter, that you are transforming at the core, and there is indeed, no turning back.

Last month’s Solar Eclipse in Gemini most likely kept you very busy and you might still be feeling the reverberations at the beginning of July. This potent reset in your sign was backed up with Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for most of June, and into July when you take the retrograde shadow into account, throwing an additional factor into an already action-packed month. It could take you a few weeks to integrate all the new elements that have been presenting themselves and to catch up with your busy schedule.
July begins with an opposition between Mars in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius which may bring attention to what you know and how you express it. Mars in Leo in your communication sector could make you quick to react and forceful when it comes to getting your message across but the opposition from Saturn in Aquarius is demanding that you slow down and take stock of what you’ve learned recently before jumping to conclusion. Mars in Leo also comes into a square with Uranus in Taurus from the 2nd to the 4th which could create inner tension and a compulsive desire to express yourself. You could be oscillating between not saying anything or saying too much and it may be difficult to have the right measure of tact without censoring yourself.
On July 5th and 6th, Mercury in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces for a third time since the end of May and you could be more susceptible to deception or anxiety. Your mind could feel clouded and it may be hard to distinguish reality from fiction. Thankfully this aspect is on its way rather quickly although it could take a few days before you are able to sort out your thinking around a particular issue and quiet your mind.
The New Moon in Cancer on the 9th signals the beginning of a new cycle related to what you value, your sense of self-worth, your income and more extensively what brings you a sense of security. Your priorities could be shifting at this time as your attention turns towards your material reality and the resources available to you. It might be a good time to recalibrate your budget and get rid of superfluous spending. There may be extra costs related to a project and you might have to weigh your expenses against your gains. Mercury enters Cancer on the 11th and comes into a supportive trine with Jupiter in Pisces on the 12th. There could be good news related to your career like a raise or an unexpected opportunity to expand your income. This is especially so if you’ve been working hard towards a particular financial goal.
Venus conjunct Mars in Leo from the 10th to the 14th highlights your self-expression and pleasurable interaction with others. The third week of July begins on a cheerful note with a lot of inspiration and creativity for your written projects. The Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on the 15th, which could cast a romantic glow on your aspirations and you may be fantasizing about an ambitious dream.
The Sun in Cancer opposed Pluto in Capricorn on the 17th could bring tension or an issue related to your finances and you may be faced with the reality or the cost of a project. You may feel at the mercy of someone who has power over you, or you could be forced to find a compromise in order to make things work in your favor. You might have the urge to branch out on your own during this time but you may also have to respect a pre-existing agreement.
Venus enters Virgo on the 21st where she highlights your home sector for the next month. You may feel like spending more time with your family or beautifying your home and it's a good time to do so. The Sun enters Leo on the 22nd increasing the momentum for verbal and written communications over the following weeks.
The Aquarius Full Moon takes place a day later, on the evening of the 23rd, culminating in the Higher Mind sector of your chart. A learning or teaching project may be coming to a close or your philosophical inclinations may be changing at this time because of what you’ve learned. You could be reaching a point of integration in connection with your field of studies and you may be feeling more secure about what you know.
What you do with what you have learned continues to be highlighted at the end of July. Mercury enters Leo on the 27th bringing momentum for all verbal and written projects while Jupiter re-entering Aquarius on the 28th, and this could bring back your desire to learn and expand into new horizons. As the month winds up this should also help you slow down and integrate before setting your sights on your next big mission.
