A lot to talk about for July, Scorpio. First, Mercury will be in Leo, your career sign, all month. It turns retrograde on the 14th and will actually be in Leo throughout August as well. Mercury in Leo links career success with your ability to entertain others with your communication style. Wit works. So does dramatic storytelling and a general willingness to be emphatic and even theatrical in getting your message across.
Mars also moves into Libra on the 3rd. It had been in worrying Virgo for an incredible 8 months, but that will all be put behind you when it enters Libra. Mars in Libra works in league with Mercury in Leo as an adjunct means of getting your message conveyed. Mars in Libra favors actively working the back channels and using behind-the-scenes or discreet methods of getting information to the people you want to receive it.
The combination is a one-two punch and requires a willingness to be simultaneously forceful and charming. Saturn is also in Libra and while it doesn’t exactly give you permission to be sneaky (Saturn has too much integrity for that), it does give you the go-ahead to keep at things until you get the ‘yes’ you are looking for.
Adding to the overwhelming emphasis on communication this month are Venus and Jupiter in Gemini. These two, but especially Venus, emphasize the stylistic aspects of communicating. Venus counsels that it’s not so much what you say as how you say it.
That’s the career portion of the equation. Then there’s the job portion of the equation.
Uranus stations in your solar job sector this month, on the 13th. Uranus has been busy trying to figure out what your current job is trying to become, how it needs to grow and/or change. Uranus has been fighting with Pluto over this issue, and the two decide to step back a bit from their dispute in mid-July. The upshot of this is that job matters may become a bit clearer after the 13th.
The small but significant daylight between Uranus and Pluto also impacts all those communication factors I mentioned before. Pluto is parked in your solar house of communication, where he has been practicing being very intense. He’ll still be intense, but after mid-month he’ll feel less need to stir up conflict or issues. Thank goodness!
