Astrol­ogy: July is all about water signs, which gov­ern feel­ings, so it’s a good time to ask: Are your work­ers happy?

Take stock of em­ployee morale.

It’s a good time to do that, be­cause emo­tions will be run­ning high this month. July is all about the water signs— Can­cer, Scorpio, and Pisces—which gov­ern feel­ings. The out­pour­ing starts early: There’s a new moon in Can­cer on the 4th, and be­cause the moon is Can­cer’s rul­ing planet, pre­pare for strong sen­ti­ments to be ex­pressed. Ask your­self if you are re­ally look­ing out for your staff. What about your mar­ket­ing— do cus­tomers know how much you care?

Shift into schmooze mode once Venus (the planet of part­ner­ships, ne­go­ti­a­tions, and money) and Mercury (the planet of sales, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and travel) move into Leo, the sign of cre­ativ­ity and loy­alty, on the 12th and 13th, re­spec­tively. Your em­ploy­ees will be fine! Fo­cus on your long-term busi­ness re­la­tion­ships, and con­sider mak­ing media buys to at­tract new ones. The sun, the planet of ego, moves into Leo on the 22nd, so think about cor­po­rate lead­er­ship—specif­i­cally, what your com­pany could do to give back.

There’s a full moon in Capricorn on the 19th. That this align­ment co­in­cides with the Repub­li­can Na­tional Con­ven­tion is not in­signif­i­cant, as Capricorn rules gov­ern­ments and pub­lic fig­ures, and the full moon has a habit of ex­pos­ing faults and de­fi­cien­cies. (Hey, don’t blame us; it’s in the stars.)

To end the month, Uranus, the planet of sud­den changes, goes into ret­ro­grade on the 29th. On the 30th, Mercury—again, the planet of com­mu­ni­ca­tion—moves into Virgo, a sign it rules. Both de­vel­op­ments will help you re­act and think more clearly.

Ac­cord­ing to Google: “A planet that is held to have a par­tic­u­lar in­flu­ence over a spe­cific sign of the zo­diac, house, as­pect of life, etc.” Where to get some fresh air when you’re tired of all the hot air in the con­ven­tion halls: Repub­li­can Na­tional...
