This is another intense month for you, Libra, especially in terms of your outer world presence, a huge focus for you all this month. With Mercury retrograding through this same sector of your solar chart, there is a process of introspection taking place, so that your ruminations on your career and professional life take on a decidedly inner slant. Transformation is in the air for you at this time, as with everyone, and many of your changes involve home and family issues, whether family of origin, current family, or your actual dwelling place. You could be contemplating a remodel of some kind, or another alteration in the makeup of your home environment. Your most important activity now reflects changing worldview and beliefs, and this requires a closer look at what is going on beneath the surface layers of your psyche. Your hang-ups and hidden complexes, based on inner wounding, are an important factors. When you can remain open to possibility, you can make great strides forward in your own personal evolution.

As July begins, the recent New Moon in Cancer that was also a solar eclipse is still coloring your responses some ten days later on. You are making a fresh start in terms of career and profession, with also a sobering influence from Saturn in Aquarius, in your fifth house of creative pursuits, which was highlighted in the New Moon by being in close aspect to the eclipse degree. With Mercury Retrograde in Cancer, your career path has also been in something of a holding pattern. Something went on pause there, either of your own accord or involuntarily, and you have been mulling things over. Mercury conjoined the Sun on the last day of June, perhaps clarifying the situation, or this timing has perhaps brought new information for you to work with. You enter the month of July in study mode, and over the first two weeks arrive at a renewed sense of coherence especially when it comes to what you do for a living.
On July 1st, Saturn in retrograde motion leaves the sign of Aquarius, returning to Capricorn and your home and family sector. Pressure and responsibilities associated with your family or the place where you live could be felt more acutely all the way through to November and early December. The Lunar eclipse in Capricorn taking place on July 4th highlights this ongoing process in connection with your roots. Saturn transiting in Capricorn for the past two years has in many ways helped you return to yourself. Questions of home, family, ancestry and what this all means for you have surfaced. Dissatisfaction with your current place of residence might have felt more acute during Saturn’s stay here. You could for example have moved or are still in the process of relocating. Saturn re-entering Capricorn shows a period of integration in connection with these topics but also signals pressure and limitations that you will have to contend with.
Mercury Retrograde in Cancer squares Mars in Aries on July 8th, emphasizing a difficult negotiation process in your partnerships. Mars stays in Aries until January 2021, due to his upcoming fall retrograde, and there brings an intense focus on all your partnership and collaborations. During this time, your energy and drive could come to be based on teaming up with others. However Mercury square Mars also implies that difficult negotiations are in the works, especially since this aspect takes place again, with Mercury direct, at the end of the July month. Even though your energy investment is directly on collaborating with others, it could remain a balancing act if you want to keep the peace.
On July 11th, Chiron stations retrograde in Aries while the Moon and Mars conjoin it in Aries, leading to the Last Quarter Moon on July 12th also in the sign of Aries with Mars still conjunct Chiron. This could be a sensitive time of the month for you, as a Libra, that must be handled with care. Chiron stationing retrograde in your house of partnerships could bring up issues or resentment especially around power, sexuality, and independence. Because Mars is also transiting in Aries, this could aggravate things and bring heated discussions to the table. At its best, this time contains potent energy to deal with recurring issues. This is a sensitive and raw few days where you are likely to get a pushback from others. You might also want to recognize that these themes are likely to reoccur down the road.
The New Moon in Cancer on July 20th is directly opposing Saturn in Capricorn, which brings an emphasis on your vocational trajectory. There is a need to find the proper supportive structures for your aspirations. You have had to contend with delays or literal opposition when it comes to your goals. This New Moon allows you to incorporate current restrictions, and reset your intentions, within the limits of your current circumstances.
The Sun enters Leo on July 22nd and will gradually bring more opportunities to socialize and network over the next thirty days, extending into August.
The Moon in Libra on July 25th and 26th emphasizes the square involving Venus in Gemini with Neptune in Pisces. Since Venus is your natural ruler, there could be a mysterious energy drain that is difficult to pinpoint; or it could also be that your desire for pleasure overrides your better judgment. This is a romantic aspect, but the square alignment with Neptune indicates that such dealings have to be handled with care. Neptune, being the higher octave of Venus, creates a desire to transcend the mundane with longings that are difficult to satiate.
The First Quarter Moon in Scorpio on July 27th highlights your financial sector. There could be issues that arise with the material world versus your goals, or in your finances. It could be that an unexpected trip or an outing with friends ends up costing you more than you anticipated.
Mercury in Cancer squares Mars in Aries once again on the same day, bringing up residual tension or similar topics to be wrestled with. The opportunity is there to resolve a conflict at this end of the month timing although finding middle ground could still feel arduous. Be patient with yourself, and with difficult topics of conversation. Mercury opposite Jupiter on July 30th will help you gain perspective.
