Virgo Horoscope for July 2024

Posted on July 1, 2024 by Henry Seltzer of ASTROGRAPH.COM

This is an essentially mystical month for you, Virgo, following on the heels of an extremely productive and outer-world oriented time, almost in compensation. Several astrological indications bring your singular recent focus to a broader and more general conception of what your pathway forward is all about. Your beliefs and worldview continue to be important, and additionally key partnerships in your life and your relationship dynamic itself are brought forward. Your innermost values are another major factor in July. You are inspired by not only what you do in the world but by the way that you do it. The New Moon of July 5th is powerful in this regard, bringing a societal element firmly, and magically, into play. Your audience and the valuation of all that you achieve is to some extent centered on the recipients of your creative endeavors. You seek the alignment as well between what you desire to accomplish and what you cherish as responsible actions from the standpoint of doing what is also the “right thing,” whatever your circumstances. The subsequent Full Moon of July 21st, with the Sun on the edge of Leo, is a powerful lunation that emphasizes balance between outer and inner concerns.

The summer is off to a big start for you, with most of the action occurring in your career sector – by way of the sign of Gemini – thanks to the recent New Moon there from early June, and to last month’s ingress of Jupiter into this same sign, which brings dynamism and opportunity for greater visibility for your public persona. You have been simultaneously hyper-aware of and articulating your values which underly all that you say and do, and your attitude of service to others, which has been evolving within you this entire year.

As July gets underway, Saturn in Pisces is standing dead-still in the sky, having turned retrograde at the end of June, and Neptune is as well, following suit at the beginning of July. These powerhouse planets, currently within ten degrees of each other, may signal important revisions in your partnerships during the month ahead. On one hand you have Jupiter at the top of your solar chart, which is prompting you to get out of your comfort zone and take a leap of faith, especially vocationally, and on the other hand, your preoccupations with a particular partner, or with your relationships in general. could have you unusually focused on these connections. You might feel a sense of greater spiritual commitment to a partner, or else perhaps feel stuck in some ways, trying for both outer world success and, as well, love. Things could feel tangled especially if you are not seeing eye to eye with partners. Still, there is a lot of momentum this month to push ahead with your personal goals and maybe even make a few bold moves that could bring more viability to what you are passionate about.

On July 2nd, your ruling planet Mercury enters Leo where it will be transiting for most of July before turning retrograde in Virgo at the beginning of August. The next several weeks could bring important reflections surrounding unconscious desires, patterns and motivations, which may give you an opportunity to assess things from a different angle.

On July 2nd and 3rd, Mercury opposes Pluto in Aquarius which may find you obsessing over a particular detail or something you are currently working on but overall the vibe should feel productive.

On July 5th the Cancer New Moon takes place in your social sector and receives favorable aspects from both Venus in Cancer and Mars in Taurus. Knowing your allies and the groups that you favor, plus connecting to like-minded people could play a huge part in feeling supported right now and also for reaching new ground or audiences with your ideas. This could be the beginning of a very creative period especially if you are able to make time for free-flowing explorations and creative expression.

Letting your unconscious speak through could bring surprising results and it may be easier to do so during the second week of July. The sextile between Mercury in Leo and Jupiter in Gemini from the 7th to the 8th is creative although it may also exaggerate any worries and anxieties you may have, even if these are unfounded. Suppressed desires surrounding recognition or validation may surface especially if this is something that is usually difficult for you to acknowledge. Venus enters Leo on the 11th and forms an opposition with Pluto in Aquarius until the 12th adding, perhaps, oil on pre-existing fires and rendering any difficult situations highly combustible. There is a learning curve associated if you can look at it that way.

On July 14th to the 15th, Mars meets Uranus in Taurus which is the most dynamic and unpredictable aspect in July although it may be felt several days before or after the aspect becomes exact. Luckily for you, Mars and Uranus are forming a whole-sign trine aspect with your sign which means that although this period has the potential to be disruptive, it could also be progressive especially if you keep an open mind about the new possibilities that are swirling around you at this time.

Mars entering Gemini on July 20th and trines transformationally-oriented Pluto, which will continue to emphasize your vocational sector in the coming weeks adding momentum to pre-existing roles or in your creative projects.

The Full Moon arrives on July 21st and takes place in the very last degree of Capricorn forming a close conjunction with Pluto in the second degree of Aquarius along with being aspected by Uranus and Neptune. All three traditional outer planets indicate a strong sense of revolutionary and spiritual transformation is in the works for you in terms of what you feel to be your true mission statement. It could be the end of an era; this Full Moon might illuminate the culmination of a long process especially for things related to your creativity, your children and more broadly for what brings you joy. In many ways, this is the beginning of something completely different although you might find yourself looking back in time and reflecting on the process that led you where you are today.

The Sun enters Leo on July 22nd joining Venus and Mercury already transiting there and opposing Pluto in Aquarius until the 23rd. This continues to emphasize the more subdued feelings you may be harboring in the deep and hidden places within your psyche. Unconscious process becomes more evident to you, along with any feelings of hidden angst that might be lurking. It could become easier to notice any tension you could be carrying in your body.

Accumulated stress – whether it’s physical or emotional – may have a way of making itself known towards the end of July when it could be easier to make some adjustments.

Mercury enters your sign on July 25th although it is moving quite slowly and preparing to station retrograde during the first week of August. For now, it may be wise to pay attention to what your body and mind requires and invest some of your energy not only in your goals but also in your well-being.
