Hello Sweethearts and welcome to the reading for the first full week of July.
Well, we are officially halfway through the year and it’s rather appropriate that we have a full moon this week because at the beginning of the week, it’s an ideal time to take a step back, gain some understanding, rebalance yourself, and think about how your goals for the year have been going. Think about what needs to be improved and readjusted or contemplate any brand-new goals that can supercharge your ambitions.
Venus is conjunct Mars, which is a vibrant and creative energy that is fantastic for romance, dating, enhancing affection in relationships, and getting your love life off the starting blocks and into action. As the Venus conjunct Mars happens in Leo, it’s particularly flamboyant, it’s a wonderful time to go somewhere snazzy, dress up, have a spray tan, get a new haircut, and go shopping.
So it’s time to spoil yourself, live a little, have some fun, and remember to be spontaneous because this conjunction is square Uranus.
While this is a great time for relationships, this may not necessarily be the most fantastic time for your finances because you’re likely to be a little bit more spendthrift, but it’s also time to live for the moment and in the moment.
So allow affection to flow, live your best life and don’t be scared to open up and be playful in love.
Aries – It’s the thrill of the fight
Aries woman are full of life, you are naturally competitive and you are fired up when you have a target to aim for and something to chase after. So this is a wonderful time for a romance, especially where you have to work hard to either win your man over or stand up for your man.
You are quite excited when there’s a little bit of competition, so maybe you are vying for the attention of a guy and you want to knock out the competition and shine, well this is a wonderful time for that.
This arouses your affectionate character, Aries are full of fire and during this particular week, you are extremely gregarious and generous.
In love, you want to show your partner what he means to you, but you also don’t want the relationship to stand still, you want to imbue the relationship with a sense of fire and potential because it’s an absolutely marvelous time of year to tackle head-on any blockages that are stopping you from having fun, igniting intimacy and sharing affection.
Remember to keep an eye on your finances, this may not be the best time to make long-term financial decisions because you’re quite emotional and you may be swayed by glossy magazines and adverts rather than facts.
Just remember that right now, the cover of the book really counts to you and you tend to be emotionally aroused, so whatever appeals to you at an emotional level will tend to influence your judgment, rather than facts and that can be true in money and relationships.
Taurus – A happy earthquake
This is a great week for Taurus to start initiating changes that will make you feel happy at a fundamental level. It’s a very important time to address the need for some shifts and some readjustments in terms of the most personal aspects of your life.
Thus it may be time to work on family relationships, this could be with your parents, children, and other relatives, and it’s also a good time for you and your partner to spend time discussing issues that affect you both and will potentially affect you way into the future.
So while the can be a fantastic week to have family and friends over to entertain in your home, and you may enjoy doing barbecues, having cookouts, and hanging out, it’s also an important time for you and your partner to get together to think about long-term issues and understand if you are both on the same page.
Often it’s important to make decisions about money especially decisions that will affect your security going forward.
This is also quite a good time to up your home security in terms of burglar bars and physical security, as that can be quite a good idea right now. Remember when it comes to family and home, peace of mind is paramount, so do what you have to do to get that peace of mind, and then you will be more relaxed and relationships will run smoothly.
Gemini – Crazy in Love
This is a fantastic week for traveling, especially trips like cruises or going somewhere where water sports are quite a feature. While travelling can generally be extremely stimulating and exciting right now, remember that variety is key, so if you are planning to go somewhere spontaneously, make sure it’s a trip that’s going to hold a kaleidoscope of different opportunities to learn.
So this is possibly not the best week to be going away to a log cabin for a really chilled-out break, because if you’re going away, it’s a much better time to be going on a city break, seeing museums, experiencing culture and having lots of romantic meals in totally new and exotic locations.
Even if you’re not able to go away this week, it is very rewarding in terms of interacting with colleagues and neighbors. You may find that you’re striking up loads of conversations with strangers or having more rewarding conversations with people whom you already know, and thus new opportunities for romance can arise.
So what a fantastic week if you are single to be out working, networking or socializing because as long as you’re among people, Cupid could strike.
Remember, if you are married, the key to this week is a sense of humor, you should be a little bit daring, a little bit controversial and you should push the boundaries in relationships and introduce new topics of conversation. Sometimes a little bit of naughtiness or a crazy new Idea can be exactly what a relationship needs to create a little bit of excitement.
Cancer – I get so emotional baby
With the full moon affecting both Cancer and Capricorn, Monday could be quite emotional this will bring to light issues to do with fairness and justice in relationships. While the week may get off to a slightly stormy start, simply because you and your partner may feel a little bit shaken and stirred, as certain issues come to light that have to be dealt with, and these can ruffle some feathers.
However, once those are resolved, you can both feel on a sure footing, but it’s important to balance emotion and logic very delicately right now, you don’t want to appear to pragmatic and cold, but on the other hand, you definitely don’t want to give in to your impulsive or more immediate reactions. So relationships require a little bit of delicacy and diplomacy, and then some action to move you forward this week.
This is a really good week for long-distance relationships and new love affairs where you are possibly keeping your relationship secret for any number of reasons. The best relationships have a certain siege mentality where it’s ‘you and he against the world’, where you and your partner feel that you’re sharing either special knowledge, special secrets, or just have something between you that’s unique.
So key to any relationship is the extent to which you feel your connection is special and unique, or where you are sensing a spiritual almost psychic bond where you can totally get into each other’s thoughts. This is the best sort of relationship for Cancer right now.
If you are dating, this is a time when a karmic and unusual, but a spectacular relationship could begin.
Leo – I feel like, I’m alive
With Venus conjunct Mars in Leo square Uranus, this is a week of fireworks. This can be an incredibly satisfying and exciting time in life and in your relationships, the only problem is you can sometimes be a little bit focused on yourself, your feelings, and how you are reacting to circumstances so much so that you can sometimes miss cues from your partner, if you’re in a relationship, or you may miss the fact that someone wants to make a move on you.
So it’s important not to be so wrapped up in yourself that you either miss a romantic opportunity, or you come across as being a little bit insensitive to your partner.
So what you need to balance right now, is your need for a more of vibrant life filled with imagination and fire and your desire to just do things that are playful and fun while still taking account of your partner’s mood and needs.
It’s also a time when so much can be happening in your life personally, that you may neglect a relationship, so even if this is a time when you’re getting what you want in terms of work or your own hobbies and that’s really consuming you, don’t forget to be nurturing in your relationship.
Virgo – Right under your nose
Venus conjunct Mercury square Uranus makes this a highly unpredictable week in terms of love, it’s very important to be aware of what’s going on under the surface, so you need to use your ESP and your psychic ability to perceive and to read between the lines.
Often what’s important right now can often be overlooked, in some cases a very important relationship could be developing but you may be dismissing it, thinking it’s just a colleague or it’s just a friend.
However a really important relationship can be right under your nose and you may be overlooking it simply because you are distracted or possibly fixated on an ex who you’re hoping will come back, rather than moving on and moving forward.
In terms of marriage, it’s important right now to show compassion and empathy, just having a broad-minded and helpful attitude is everything in love right now. Sometimes love is about sex, sometimes it’s about affection, sometimes it’s about fun, but a lot of times it’s about creating an atmosphere where your partner feels that no matter what they say, you are going to take it on board, find it interesting and not judge them.
So key to new relationships and marriage right now, is showing an attitude of acceptance and being able to see things in an overall and philosophical perspective rather than trying to put everything in a narrow little box.
Libra – Steering your way to love
With Mars conjunct your ruler Venus in Leo, this is a time of action in love. The message is: do it now, don’t let situations linger. If there are important decisions to be made in terms of your relationship, it’s time to get your partner to the discussion table, show some leadership and get things moving in the right direction.
If single, it may be a good idea for you to put the moves on a guy, you can do that by being extra charming and persuasive, or maybe you want to ask a guy out, or alternatively start talking to a date about when the relationship is going to go onto the next level.
Now there is a sense of urgency and impatience about Libra right now, you’re not generally a Star Sign that lets life pass you by, being a cardinal sign you always have your foot on the accelerator and you don’t like to be passive.
This is definitely a week when post the full moon on Monday, it’s an excellent time to introduce discussions, do some brainstorming and get thinking about what the relationship is lacking and how to strengthen the relationship. You may not be able to act on things until the New Moon, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get the ideas in place.
This is an important time to take action on your finances, you should be rather reserved about spending and it’s a good time to consolidate debt or start budgeting or setting about organizing a serious savings plan. This can be a very successful time financially, but the key is now is to conserve and be cautious.
Scorpio – Fired up for Freedom
Scorpio are in a high-energy frame of mind, you are feeling particularly proactive and driven, and your creative juices are definitely flowing. In relationships, you can be a little bit restless and you may want some space.
During this week, it’s often important for you to pursue your career ambitions, and social media goals or to enjoy mingling with different sorts of people, it may be a week where you are more inclined to spend time with your friends and it’s quite possible that absence will make the heart grow fonder, in terms of relationships.
It’s possible that your partner is annoying you a little bit at the moment, especially if they seem a little bit stagnant, lackluster, or low energy, and in this case, it’s totally acceptable for you to want to do a few things by yourself so that you can express yourself fully without necessarily being with your partner.
If you are single, this is a marvelous time to meet people through your work. It’s a great time to go to work socials, networking events or simply just strike up more conversations in the canteen or in the work environment.
The best relationships right now are adaptable, and in a positive relationship, your partner should accept your need to do things differently, and to be a bit more spontaneous and adventurous this week, and they should allow you free reign.
Sagittarius – Fit for Love
This is generally an optimistic week for Sagittarius, where you are feeling like life is opening up, but at the same time, you can actually feel very confused.
It’s often a disorganized or rather chaotic week, and although your ideas tend to be quite grand, the level of what you achieve can be disappointing, but all is not lost as this is an excellent time for you to experiment, travel, read or engage with the community in new projects.
If you are looking for love, taking up a course or joining a new sports club can be a fantastic way to connect with a guy, in fact, one of the big themes this week for Sagittarius is fitness goals, staying healthy and losing weight. Thus, if you’re single, joining any clubs to do with weight loss or fitness is a wonderful way to meet both men and women, but romantic opportunities could arise down the line.
The key in marriage right now is motivation, often couples drift apart because they don’t share goals or simply aren’t motivated to do anything inspiring together. So with the good weather (for a lot of us in the Northern Hemisphere) this is a wonderful time for you and your partner to get in the outdoors, do more exercise, do more with your pets and these activities can help you to bond.
Having fun, keeping fit without any expectation of romance or pressure, as can be the case with candle lit dinners or cozy nights in, is more conducive to romance which comes when the pressure is off and you’re just having fun doing an activity that gets the adrenaline going.
Capricorn – ‘E’ for effort
For Capricorn, the Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo brings an extremely intense week for relationships, plus we have the full moon affecting your sign, Capricorn, and Cancer, which again means relationships require attention. It’s very important for you and your partner to work on relationship depth, to feel involved and to show each other a lot of compassion and understanding.
You can’t take relationships for granted right now, you’ve got to do the time and put in the effort in order to reach the rewards. It’s highly likely that your partner has certain expectations of you and they want a certain level of attention and focus, so don’t be late, don’t cancel or take a raincheck, don’t seem evasive.
If there’s something important that your partner wants to talk to you about, make the time for them this week as it’s all about showing your partner that they are important enough for you, that you will drop everything to help them, to listen to them or to make time for a discussion.
Marriages or new relationships can flounder if it’s apparent that you don’t want to make that time, so this is not a week to be distracted.
If you are single this can be a time in which someone totally unexpected comes into your life and you begin an extremely passionate, particularly sexual relationship.
Aquarius – Fitting Puzzle Pieces
This should be an especially interesting month for married Aquarians. In terms of marriage milestones and family life, it’s an excellent time to be celebrating your marriage, enjoying special events with your family or even thinking about buying a home. This may be a wonderful week for you guys if you have been going out for a while, to be thinking about moving in together or even buying a property together.
In terms of marriage, this is a time when you guys may want to think about extending your home, because you want to extend your family, or making improvements to your home to make it more conducive to either working from home as a new avenue or entertaining.
This is a particularly good time for couples who work together in terms of running a business as a married couple, because this will really help you to bond and you can be very successful complimenting each other as a team.
On the other hand, this is a wonderful time to fall in love with someone whom you are already in partnership with in terms of business, so relationships developing through work are likely to go to the next level.
Not necessarily everything however is plain sailing in love, there could be some friction and some sudden arguments, but these are actually very, very important to settle tension, to clear the air, and to establish some positive new directions. If you guys have been in a rut, it’s more likely that you’ll have a fight this week, but that’s probably a necessary evil to get you back on the road to success again.
Pisces – Precise is very nice
This week, one of the key themes in relationships is effective communication, particularly about practical matters.
Now Pisces tend to live through their emotions, sometimes as a Pisces, you are not always great on details in relationships, but right now the little details really count, so in terms of impressing a new date, remembering things like the name of his pet dog or his birthday or even more important, facts about his parents, as this can show a great deal of thoughtfulness.
It’s also important to be punctual and precise because you are likely to meet someone this week who will put a lot of emphasis on attention to detail, and therefore it’s important to show that you are paying attention, you’re a good listener and you follow through. It’s also vital not to make promises you can’t keep, or don’t intend to keep.
One of the problems in relationships, both new or existing relationships, is that you very spur of the moment, you tend to express yourself quite spontaneously and you can often say things off the cuff that are perhaps not entirely true, and you’ve just said them for effect to impress him.
Alternatively, don’t be tempted to say things you don’t necessarily mean. So, it’s important right now to say what you mean, mean what you say and keep a track of anything you’ve said so that you don’t create any false expectations or let him down.
This is a wonderful month for love, but it’s important to work hard on your relationships, not to take anything for granted, and continue to be creative about the way you live your lives. This is not a time for simply having a quiet romantic time, it should be purposeful, where you are working on relationship goals, improving understanding or learning more about your partner’s boundaries and triggers.
So it’s a time when relationships should be dynamic, so don’t try and stay in a box, it’s important to expand, to be able to express yourselves as individuals, but still to grow in terms of your relationship.
The themes for this week are:
- Excitement in love
- Enjoying life
- Relationship goals
- New directions
