We’ve got two big astrological events coming up this month! First, on July 2, a complete solar eclipse will kick off summer 2019. We’re talking about exciting, powerful energy – maybe even a little too exciting! Eclipses keep us all on our toes; they shake up stale energy to make room for something new. Basically, there’s no time like the present to upgrade your #summergoals bucket list.
All this action will be followed up by a partial lunar eclipse on July 16. This second eclipse is all about endings. Be prepared to let go of something that no longer serves you.
Here’s what you can expect from the stars this month!
Your July horoscope
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Summer goal: Set down roots! You’ve been out and about lately, but summer 2019 is a great time to add a little stability to your life by finding a new long-term living situation. You might also end up back in your hometown – digging into your family history could be a game-changer.
What to watch out for: Big shifts in your career are on the horizon. A job, project, or business deal could be wrapping up – or taken to the next level.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Summer goal: Have your voice heard. Start a blog, write a book, get a public speaking gig, or just get out and socialize – whatever you need to do to speak your mind.
What to watch out for: An educational or spiritual pursuit is coming to a close. Take what you’ve learned and use it as inspiration – or go seek out another avenue of learning!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Summer goal: Get. That. Bread. This summer’s a great time to get paid, Gemini. Whether that means a new job or a new side hustle, it’s the perfect time to focus on your financial wellbeing.
What to watch out for: Power struggles. July 2019 is all about increasing your sense of security and self-reliance; let go of any relationships that hold you back.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Summer goal: Focus on you! If you’ve been feeling super bogged down, this is the perfect time to refocus on your own happiness and well-being. It’s okay to be a little selfish once in a while.
What to watch out for: A partnership in your life may be evolving – or coming to an end. Whatever happens, you’ll be able to deal with it as long as you get some self-care in this summer.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Summer goal: Get in touch with your “higher self”. An emotional or spiritual journey is on the horizon – whatever “spirituality” means to you, it’s well worth exploring starting July 2. Need ideas on how to get started? Try helping others – you might heal yourself in the process.
What to watch out for: If you’ve been focusing on your healthy, plant-based lifestyle this past year, you should be feeling amazing by mid-month. Leave your health woes in the past – good health allows for more fun in the sun!
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Summer goal: Make new friends! Go camping, check out the pool parties, hit the beach – you never know where you’ll meet your new BFF!
What to watch out for: If you’ve been seeing someone, you’ll know where you stand with them by mid-July. Regardless of your relationship status, you’ll also wrap up a creative project this month. Make sure to celebrate your hard work!
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Summer goal: Get a promotion! Not to say you shouldn’t have fun this summer, but July really is all about slaying your career goals! Get out and network – you never know where a chance encounter (and a lot of hard work) will lead.
What to watch out for: Say goodbye to staying at home – Netflix will still be there when you get back. Wrap up any home-related stressors this month so you can get out and do the most this season!
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Summer goal: Hello, vacation! An impromptu trip could be just the game-changer you need. Summer 2019 is sure to be epic if you take a plant-based getaway – check out our eco-friendly vacation tips for some inspo!
What to watch out for: If there ever was a time to speak your mind, this summer is it. If you’ve been holding anything in – ideas, opinions, even gossip – it’s bound to come out one way or another. Take control of the situation and own what you have to say.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Summer goal: Get invested in something life-changing, Sagittarius. It could be any kind of investment – financial, romantic, spiritual. Ultimately, you want to give your life more depth and meaning this summer. Just don’t get in over your head.
What to watch out for: You’re entering new territory this month, but it’s also important to reconsider the foundation you’re currently standing on. What do you still value, and what has served its purpose? Shaky foundations will crumble, but it’s for the best. Out with the old, in with the new.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Summer goal: This is the summer of love, Capricorn! New commitments form, and long-standing ones will reach the next level. It should be all smooth sailing as long as you and your partner treat each other as equals.
What to watch out for: There’s no doubt about it – you’re totally feeling yourself this month. As your confidence blooms, a new chapter of self-development opens up to you – you’re not the same person you were a year ago. Just remember that not everything is about you – it’s easy to get a little self-involved under this influence.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Summer goal: Get out and get active! Your energy is high this month, so why not enjoy the sun while you’re workin’ on your fitness? You’re all about productivity, so make the most of this can-do phase!
What to watch out for: Things could get a little emotional mid-month – a secret could bubble to the surface, or old emotional wounds could make their presence known. Whatever you do, don’t bottle it up – reach out for support.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Summer goal: Turn on the Grease soundtrack and blast “Summer Nights” on repeat, Pisces. This is the perfect month to indulge in a summer fling! If you’re already in a relationship, find ways to reprioritize your love. Go on a weekend getaway, institute a “date night”, even start a new project together. Gardening, anyone?
What to watch out for: Things are getting super intense with your friend group. Maybe someone’s moving away, maybe you’re all spending a little too much time together, or maybe the drama is just getting too real. Whatever the case is, don’t be surprised if there’s a bump in the road. It will help you move on from “friendships” that are no longer healthy.
