It's an action-packed month with two eclipses, one Mercury retrograde and a goodness knows what else!
Keep on scrolling to find out what your horoscope has in store for you in July 2020.

Cancer or Cancerian rising: Jun 23 - Jul 23

Watch out if you and your beloved or ex are at odds – it could get even more challenging this month!
You have learned some important lessons about how to handle relationship dramas in the past few years.
Show you've learned what you needed to.
Big changes in one important relationship are possible now.
The astrology of it is that karmic planet Saturn is back in your love zone this month, for one last push at trying to make you be a grown up in all your most important relationships.
It's nothing you can't handle but relationship cracks could show.

Leo or Leo rising: Jul 24 - Aug 23

Take time out if you can. Chances are you will need it.
The Sun is in your 12th House this month, which means it's time for you to take some time out from life's madness.
It's a time for you to be taking it slow. Think about the past 12 months and what you have learned from them, especially in terms of your health and wellbeing. If you had a spiritual practice you let lapse (e.g. yoga or meditation) consider picking it back up.
If you want to live really consciously and intentionally this month, here's a tip from the heavens; do a detox, be it emotional or physical.

Virgo or Virgo rising: Aug 24 - Sep 23

This could be a sociable time for you, however expect the odd mix up with friends.
The planet of communications, Mercury, is going backwards in your friendship zone until the middle of the month so there is a lot of potential for confusion. Maybe you have your wires crossed, or maybe you and a pal just don't want the same things anymore.
Keeping your sense of humour will help. Be very careful of being too Virgo and offering to do so much for others than you end up resenting it.
You know this is never a good idea.

Libra or Libra rising: Sep 24 - Oct 23

Mercury is retrograde in your career zone, so chances are you're going to be re-thinking what you want to do with your professional life.
If there is confusion about work, allow events to play out as you gather information. You'll have more clarity by July's end.
The best thing you can do for the first few weeks of the month is to gather intel, so to speak.
Think about what you can do to revise and rethink your professional life so it's working as you would like it to.
At home, there are pressures, but nothing that you don't already know how to handle.

Scorpio or Scorpio rising: Oct 24 - Nov 22

The most important thing you can do now is keep an open mind about everything.
Decide that you are a life-long learner and that life is your greatest teacher, and see what life is trying to show you. This is what it means to "live consciously".
Focus on the positive, and you'll see attitude really can be what dictates your destiny.
If you've had a leaning towards being negative or even depressed in the past few years, go easy this month. Saturn could weigh heavy on your mind.
Talk to someone who can help you if you need to!

Sagittarius or Sagittarius rising: Nov 23 - Dec 21

Expect changes to do with your finances as the eclipse hits your wallet.
There is such a lot of energy around you and money this month and you're being asked to re-employ all you've learned about how your self-esteem and pay are symbiotic.
In other words, the more you believe you are worth (deep down), the more you will be paid. All that said, whatever you do, don't panic!
The eclipse could actually be the blast of energy you need to start to do things differently financially. A good time for a consultation with your bank manager or financial planner.

Capricorn or Capricorn rising: Dec 22 - Jan 20

This is a potentially magical month for you – if you use it right.
You could change your life in truly amazing ways. However, if you just avoid responsibility, another tedious round of tough lessons is likely.
The first step to deal with all this is to decide what in your life you need to release. Move on from the past.
The thing is, you have the eclipse in your sign this month, on July 5. So it is a month when you can really step into a new life. The first step is to be clear on what you want.

Aquarius or Aquarius rising: Jan 21 - Feb 19

The pressure is off you now as karma planet Saturn moves out of your sign for a few months. You can breathe again. You're getting a second chance to prepare properly to deal with Saturn (he'll return in December for a long stay).
Grow up, be honest and true, keep your commitments, and above all else, have a life plan. Think of now as a chance to get your life back in order without too much pressure on you. How do you want the second half of 2020 to play out?

Pisces or Pisces rising: Feb 20 - Mar 20

You're back in a cycle for a few months when the most annoying people in your life almost certainly have the most to teach you!
So, think about who is really getting on your nerves, and ask yourself what the lesson is.
We think lots about romantic soulmates, but sometimes friends and family are soulmates too, just not romantic ones.
If a relationship or friendship is ending now, chances are it really has run its course.
The last thing you want to do now is hang on to someone for the wrong reasons, for example, because they're "useful" to you!

Aries or Aries rising: Mar 21 - Apr 20

The Full Moon eclipse is demanding that you to find a balance between your working life and the rest of your life.
This is no small request! If your personal life has been taking up so much time that it's been detrimental to you at work (or vice versa) bring back some balance. Work challenges are sent to test you now.
You have been through such a lot in the past few years when it comes to your career. Now is the time to show the world (and your bosses!) that you have learned your lessons.

Taurus or Taurus rising: Apr 21 - May 21

This could be a bit of a confusing month. The best way to handle it is to understand that Mercury retrograde in your mind zone is the ideal time for you to think your life through again and again. Answers should come by mid-month.
The main issue is that you could find yourself feeling a bit unsure of the best way forwards.
This too shall pass – by the mid-month, to be exact. On the upside, plans for study, travel, teaching, adventure and publishing could all inspire you this month. A trip or a course of study or teaching you do could be life-changing.

Gemini or Gemini rising: May 22 - June 22

The eclipse this month is taking place across your two money zones, heralding changes to your financial situation.
It's important that you use the lessons you've had about cash in the past two years, if/when issues come up.
Also, a great time to re-think your whole financial set-up, as Mercury retrogrades. Money you're owed could finally arrive at last, too.
In a nutshell, this is a month for you to be smart about money and to get rid of any expenses that you know are no good for your bank account. Life makes more sense by the end of July.
