July Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe
Nothing quite like Mars moving into Leo to kick off another wicked summer eclipse season! Your leadership abilities are going to come into full force this month, use this to your advantage at work. The solar eclipse takes place on the 2nd, and this is going to cause an internal shift, one that effects the cardinal signs (that’s you) more deeply than others. What story and lessons were you working through last summer? There’s more work to do with this story. We also have a beautiful Cancer New Moon on the 2nd and it’s calling all you Aries rams to evaluate your boundaries, or maybe lack there of. Venus goes into Cancer the next day, on the 3rd, and the work there is all about learning to be more frugal with your summer spending, which will be especially important once Venus goes into extravagant spending Leo on the 28th. The Capricorn Full Moon on the 16th is asking you to release the idea that your worth comes from the amount of things you are able to do and accomplish. The 22nd, 23rd, or 24th are going to present you with an opportunity to showcase your talents, make sure you say yes. Go all in, Aries, but remember to double check the fine print because this is also Mercury retrograde season!
A Cancer New Moon is the perfect time for a Taurus to buckle down and make a savings plan for the summer. With the solar eclipse happening on the same day, the 2nd, there is going to be an internal shift happenening, so if more money is what you want, then this is the perfect moon phase to call it in. If you are still reeling from a Taurus season deficit in your bank account, you’ll definetly be making up for it and then some by the time Venus moves into Cancer the very next day, the 3rd. To help you on this frugal campaign, the Capricorn Full Moon on the 16th is going to help you to release the need for everything to be perfectly in order before you can act. There’s a pretty gnarly Mercury Retrograde this month in Leo and Cancer, so you’re going to mess up anyway. Learn, learn, learn this month and then move the F on. You don’t need to call in abundance at this time, you need to release a little control. The 24th, 25th, and 26th are going to be lucky days despite the retrograde, so use this luck to your advantage.
Once the planet of f*ckin’ and fightin’ slides into Leo on the 1st of the month your powers of persuasion are going to be in full force. Make a business leap that scares you under this transit. send the scary email, post the Youtube or IGTV video, cold call clients, whatever it is, people are going to be drawn to you this month. Something shifts inside of you on the 2nd and it’s something that you’ve been avoiding. This thing or thought boils up to the surface of your mind under the solar eclipse and New Moon in Cancer, allow it to come. Use your keen mind to analyze this new thing, and it’s totally fine to order take out 4 nights in a row while you’re working through the heaviness of this season. Venus in Cancer wants you to get cozy. The Capricorn Full Moon and partial lunar eclipse on the 16th is a good time for you to search for authenticity. The more authentic you can be the better you’ll be at calling in wealth, clients, and money making opportunities. Fear not, because the 27th and 28th are going to be bright shining days or realization. If you were feeling a mid month plateau (maybe a mid year plateau even), the end of the month will gift you some much needed clarity leading you to the next power move in your life.
You’re going to feel a deep need to take charge this month, in ways that may seem a bit foreign to you at first. Your oft used, but strong af, temper will come into play starting on the 1st with Mars transitioning into Leo. The gut is the part of the body ruled by Cancer, and your gut is what you need to listen to during the eclipse and New Moon, both happening on the 2nd. Invite the emotions in, my little crab babies, they have something important to teach you. With Venus transiting into Cancer on the very next day, your proclivity for aquiring trinkets is going to be empahsized but so will your frugal nature. Make a summer budget, even if it’s on a restaurant napkin or the back of some forgotten junk mail. You’re holding onto a memory or grudge and its keeping you from making your next career step, money move, or from starting your own business… whatever it is, learn to let go on the Capricorn Full Moon taking place on the 16th. Forgive and forget, and then make a business plan. The last three days of the month are going to give you lots of energy, so if you’ve been waiting for the right moment to take the leap, do it on the 29th, 30th, or 31st. Yes, there will be a Mercury Retrograde in July, but waiting for the right moment will leave you waiting forever.
In true Leo fashion this is a very Leo centric month, despite having to share it with your tender Cancer neighbor. Mars will be in Leo all month long making your leadership abilities shine, so use your naturally magnanimous demeanor to charm a raise out of your boss or pull in some new clients. The New Moon in Cancer on the 2nd is the perfect time for you to go home and asses all the furniture and decor in your house. Does it feel like you? With Venus moving into Cancer the next day you’ll be wanting to buy that mid-century modern table and chair set you’ve been eyeing that just went on sale, so make room for it. Look out for an offer coming your way on the 4th or 5th, take it! Once Mercury stations retrograde on the 9th the opportunity will no longer be there (but we never “miss” anything that is actually meant for us). The Capricorn Full Moon on the 16th invites you to do something about what you’ve been avoiding: your savings account. Make a budget for the next month and stick to it, you’ll thank yourself. When Venus moves into Leo on the 28th you’ll want to splurge on a new swimsuit or tickets to a show, so make sure you put some fun money into the budget.
The total solar eclipse on the 2nd is going to stir up some much needed epiphanies inside of you, Virgo. This new shift, new information, new intuitive download is going to send you into a cleaning and/or organizing spiral. Let this be the meditative thing that guides you on your journey this eclipse season. On the 3rd Venus moves into Cancer and your keen ability to save will come to the forefront. Get your money this summer, and save it for a good time. The 6th and 7th are very productive days for you, so if you have an big daunting tasks, plan to tackle them on those days. Mercury stations retrograde on the 9th but you don’t need to shift your whole life around in fear of it; Virgo’s can always handle a Merc Rx. When the moon is full and bright on the 16th I want you to think about your 5 year plan. How detailed is it? How set are you on this path? There is a release that needs to happen here. Recognize that your plan isn’t the only plan in the Universe. Release (some) control. On the 28th Venus enters flashy Leo and you’re more inclined to spend, but then again, you have been saving some extra money this month! Think before you spend, and then spend away, my dear!
With eclipse season coming right back around to push us and pull us into new life lessons, the one you’ll be learning is of the self. On the Cancer New Moon/ total solar eclipse on the 2nd I want you to lean into your desire to be alone. It might feel foreign at first but it is so necessary. Give yourself the love that you often give others. The next day Venus moves into Cancer where spending money is a complicated dance. Take yourself on dates during this transit but be frugal about it. Go to happy hour or a matinee show to save a few bucks. The Capricorn Full Moon on the 16th also brings a partial lunar eclipse. You’re going to be cosmically forced to let some things go, so why not go through your closet/ room/ house and pick out some forgotten about things to sell or donate. Once Venus moves into Leo on the 28th you’ll be wanting to buy some new shiny things, so make room for it! Any important tech related business you have to do this month should be tackled on the 8th and 9th, as those are lucky days for you and Mercury stations retrograde on the 9th.
You’re feeling more agressive this month with Mars in fire sign Leo, bringing out your own innate Mars energy. Work from home if you can on the 2nd, your desire to be alone during the New Moon will be strong. You also may be feeling a lot of emotions which is not something you enjoy doing in front of other people, let alone coworkers. If you, like many Scorpios do, work with other people’s money, business will be good under this transit. This is also a good time to look into investing. Spend some time researching investments that are in line with your belief system. The Capricorn Full Moon on the 16th is an energy you feel very comfortable in, my melancholic Scorpio babies. Use this time to sit back, draw a bath and vision what the next few months of your career will look like. What’s the next goal you’re going to achieve? Release it out into the world and detach from expectations. Venus moves into Leo on the 28th and this is a great time to “sell yourself.” Use this showmanship energy to invest in yourself and invite others to invest in you as well. We’re all more likely to spend money under this transit so why not have people spend money on you?
Mars will be in Leo all month which will enhance your ability to stand up for what you believe in. Stand up for yourself and others in an all too unfair world. Unfair work conditions? Talk to HR, talk to your boss, talk to your bosses boss. A very unexpected epiphany is going to rock your world on the 2nd, and your job is just to lean into it and learn the lesson you are supposed to learn. On the 3rd youll be analyzing the future of your finances. Look at your savings account, what are you doing there? What are your financial goals? Make some this month if you don’t have any, and if you do have financial goals in place how can you revamp it? Save more, that’s the zeitgeist of the season. The 12th, 13th, and 14th bring on a shiny new opportunity that you’re probably going to say no to. The Full Moon in Capricorn on the 16th asks you to release fear based decision making. Go back and say yes to the opportunity you originally passed up, if it’s not still there then it was never meant for you to begin with. When Venus moves into Leo on the 28th we’ll all be feeling like we want to splurge, so splurge on! Just leave your savings account alone.
The eclipse season began last summer, stirred us this past winter, and is now coming back in full swing again for Summer 2019. It effects us Cardinal signs the most, so this total solar eclipse on the 2nd (not visible in the US) is going to bring on a big inner shift having to do with the lessons of last summer. With the Cancer New Moon looming overhead as well, I suggest that all you Capricorns reach out and ask for help where you need it. You don’t have to do everything alone. When Venus moves into Cancer the next day you’ll want to spend the month saving up your money, and that which you don’t save will be spent on things for your home. spend this Cancer season nesting, getting real comfortable in your house. Mercury will station retrograde on the 9th and you always double check, but this month is a time when you’ll want to triple check everything. Lots of things come into your orbit on the 14th, 15th, and 16th, coinciding with the Capricorn Full Moon; I want you to focus your attention on the ways you’ve been spending your time this month. Time is money, and both time and money are tied for Capricorn’s favorite thing. Your time is an investment; what are you investing in? When Venus moves into Leo on the 28th you’ll be acting richer than you are. Good! Acting rich is the first step to actually becoming rich.
With so many planets in your polar sign of Leo you’re going to be feeling a bit out of sorts this month. I implore you to lean into your pushy, attention grabbing, magnanimous side in July. A perspective switch comes with the total solar eclipse and New Moon in Cancer on the 2nd of the month. Sit in the bath or shower and do what you do best: analyze this new feeling, figure out what it means for you. On the 3rd Venus moves into frugal Cancer so we’ll all be more inclined to save up this month. When you do spend money you might want to spend a bit extra on your loved ones. Buy your mom a present, or someone that you love like a mom, and allow the blessings to flow in. The Capricorn Full Moon and partial lunar eclipse happen on the 16th and you’re being called to analyze the rules and boundaries you’ve placed on yourself. You’re a dreamer, dream of more for yourself. Lucky opportunities pop up in the days after the moon; if you’ve put in the work, these opportunities could be big ones for you! This is a summer of shifts so learn to be mutable, you beautiful fixed air babies!
This summer is going to be a doozy for us all, so buckle up! July starts off with a solar eclipse and New Moon in Cancer on the 2nd day fo the month. You’re going to feel something new and foreign on the 2nd, this might effect your perception of home. Remember, home isn’t just where your bed is, it’s a feeling. The next day Venus moves into homebody Cancer and this energy will help keep you on top of your spendings this month. Venus in Cancer wants you to check your bank statement everyother day, so please do that.
