Mars moves into your sign this month on the 3rd. It had been shyly hanging out in Virgo for 8 months, where its mind races with worries that it does not want to share with others. In your sign it feels like talking again. To anyone it can find. Children, lovers, strangers on the street. It’s ready to exchange thoughts with others and it’s no longer afraid of expressing its opinion.
Make it happy by indulging your chatty side. Unlike Mars in Virgo, Mars in your own sign also doesn’t want to be alone. It wants to hang out with others, do things with companions, go places with a buddy.
July also has a youthful vibe, thanks to the continuing influence of Venus and Jupiter in Gemini. Gemini is one of the most youthful signs of all (and natives often look fabulous long after others have drooped and sagged), and it has access to one of the best traits of youth–the joyful ability to get excited.
Admittedly, Saturn is still in your sign and it’s a bit less bouncy than the other prevailing influences. But…on the upside it has been busy working on your love relationships (because your sign is always interested in its love relationships), making your ability to be with others more solid and enduring. At least, that’s how it supposed to work, and you’ll have undoubtedly made some significant progress on this front by the time Saturn leaves your sign in October.
On that topic, I should mention that Uranus stations in your solar sector of committed relationships this month, on the 13th. Right around that time, you may be presented with alternatives (always a challenge for Libra) and be asked to make a choice that can lead to a turnaround in your current relationship situation. Uranus also backs off from his fight with Pluto in your solar residence sector this month, which may ease tensions on the home front as well.
July is also Libra’s annual career month. The Cancer new moon on the night of the 18th gives your work an audience. The combination of Jupiter and Venus in Gemini with the sun in Cancer could mean that this is a good month to invest in some professional education.
The final major influence of the month comes via sun and Mercury in Leo. Like Mars, Venus and Jupiter, this is a chatty influence. There’s no way around it in July: talk!
