Can­cer ( JUNE 21 – JULY 22)

You are em­pow­ered in July be­cause the Sun is in your sign. Venus pro­motes your finances and re­la­tion­ships with friends and rel­a­tives. This is help­ful be­cause con­flicts about shared prop­erty, in­her­i­tances or in­sur­ance might oc­cur around July or Au­gust. Slip away on a va­ca­tion. By Au­gust, your fo­cus will turn to earn­ing money. En­ter­tain guests at home.

Libra ( SEPT. 23 – OCT. 22)

It’s play­time for Li­brans this sum­mer. Slip away on va­ca­tion in July or Au­gust. Seek out op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­press your creative urges and at­tend par­ties and gallery open­ings. Mean­while, ro­mance and love affairs will feed your soul. This whole sum­mer will feel like one long va­ca­tion. Even bet­ter, you im­press bosses and VIPs in July, while Au­gust will usher in pop­u­lar­ity.

Capricorn ( DEC. 22 – JAN. 19)

You need more sleep in July. Just ac­cept this. Dis­putes about money, plus the fact that you’re work­ing ex­tra hard, might drain your en­ergy. For­tu­nately, these is­sues will likely be set­tled in your favour this sum­mer be­cause you will be fo­cused on tak­ing care of your fi­nan­cial needs. In ad­di­tion to this, oth­ers will favour you, which should help things run smoothly.

Aries ( MARCH 21 – APRIL 19)

This is go­ing to be a tricky sum­mer. You must find a bal­ance be­tween your own in­ter­ests and the in­ter­ests of oth­ers. One so­lu­tion is to co­or­di­nate your needs with theirs. Share goals. Find a way to have a win-win for ev­ery­one. July is all about home and fam­ily. In Au­gust, you’ll want to es­cape on a va­ca­tion. This month is also a hot­bed for ro­mance!

Leo ( JULY 23 – AUG. 22)

Be pa­tient with part­ners and close friends this sum­mer. Mars is op­po­site your sign, which makes you eas­ily ir­ri­tated. Pa­tience is your ally be­cause it’s the an­ti­dote to anger. Shop­ping for wardrobe good­ies de­lights you in July. By Au­gust, you’ll step out in full daz­zle. Be­ware: Re­la­tion­ships with spouses and part­ners will still be dicey for some.

Scorpio ( OCT. 23 – NOV. 21)

In­creased ac­tiv­ity and chaos on the home front prompt you to hit the road in July. Grab ev­ery chance to travel. (With lucky Jupiter in your sign, you have many op­por­tu­ni­ties.) In Au­gust, the Sun will be at the top of your chart cast­ing a flat­ter­ing light on you. Bosses and VIPs will ad­mire you, so go ahead and make your pitch.

Aquarius ( JAN. 20 – FEB. 18)

You’re work­ing hard in July. Mars will be in your sign for the rest of the sum­mer, boost­ing your en­ergy and im­prov­ing how you com­mu­ni­cate. Try to get lots of ex­er­cise to help you blow off any pent-up steam. In Au­gust, you will zero in on your clos­est re­la­tion­ships and part­ner­ships. Also: Grab ev­ery chance that comes your way to travel for fun.

Tau­rus ( APRIL 20 – MAY 20)

Your am­bi­tion will be aroused over the next two months. You’ll be de­ter­mined to achieve your goals, which is why con­flicts with co-work­ers might arise. July is fast­paced and busy with short trips, er­rands, writ­ing, study­ing and much to­ing and fro­ing. In Au­gust, your fo­cus will turn to home, fam­ily and your pri­vate world. An in­ter­ac­tion with a par­ent will be in­tense.

Virgo ( AUG. 23 – SEPT. 22)

It’s a given that you will work hard this sum­mer. (It’s what’s hap­pen­ing in 2018.) Nev­er­the­less, you’re pop­u­lar in July. En­joy schmooz­ing with friends and be­ing ac­tive with groups and clubs. Make the most of this be­cause by Au­gust, you will choose to pull in your reins a bit and seek quiet and soli­tude. A cabin in the for­est or a cot­tage by the sea, per­haps?

Sagittarius ( NOV. 22 – DEC. 21)

You have the con­trol in July when it comes to in­her­i­tances and in­sur­ance mat­ters. You’re in charge and you’re con­vinc­ing, and that power will con­tinue through Au­gust. Friend­ships are warm in July, es­pe­cially with creative, artis­tic pals. This will be a strong sum­mer for those of you who write, sell, mar­ket, teach or act.

Pisces ( FEB. 19 – MARCH 20)

Love is in the air. Ex­pect par­ties, gallery open­ings, movies, the theatre, fun get­aways and play­ful times with fam­ily. July is the per­fect month for a va­ca­tion. Col­leagues are sup­port­ive, and a workre­lated ro­mance could blos­som. En­joy these fun times be­cause by Au­gust, you’ll be back in work mode. But you’ll ben­e­fit from the wealth and re­sources of oth­ers.

Gemini ( MAY 21 – JUNE 20)

You’ll want ad­ven­ture and ex­cit­ing travel this sum­mer. You need to blow town so you can dis­cover ex­otic scenery and meet fas­ci­nat­ing peo­ple. You will also en­joy studies and learn­ing. Money and earn­ings are a top pri­or­ity in July. (Many of you are start­ing home renos.) But by Au­gust, a busy so­cial cal­en­dar will be a god­send—you’ll be ready for it!
