July Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe
July starts off with Saturn sliding back into Capricorn on the 1st, where it will be until mid-December. Saturn in Capricorn will push your buttons to make sure that you’ve retained the lessons you were meant to learn these past few years. These lessons will have to do with stepping into your role as a leader and pioneer. The final eclipse of the season is on the 5th, it will be a Capricorn full moon lunar eclipse. On that day a plan is likely to fall through, and a fight between you and a friend may occur, but there is an important lesson that you are being guided to learn. Next, Mercury stations direct in Cancer on the 12th. You may find that the two weeks of post retrograde shadow, which follow it, are just as tough as the retrograde itself. Perhaps you may need another push to make the changes that need to be implemented in your life. The 11th, 12th, and 13th are sure to be fortunate days for you with the moon being in Aries. If you have anything that needs a bit of luck, save it for those days. Then, on the 20th, will be the second of two new moons in Cancer this year. Fear not, this one is not an eclipse! You will be called to use plan B or plan C regarding a plan with your home or your savings account under this moon. Then the month ends with Venus and Neptune squaring each other in the cosmos. To us on Earth this will feel like a harsh waking up to the reality of our spending habits.
