This is the point of the year where things really start to get interesting, for apart from the annual march of the Sun, Venus and Mercury through the different areas of your chart, the same areas that they track through at the same time every year, nothing much has changed so far this year and in a way you've been marking time. Yet this month, while a lot of things will stay the same Jupiter and Mars, the two planets that can really get things moving, are both changing signs this month and in both cases for the first time all year. While the focus is always on home and family matters at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of July in your home and family sector, with lucky Jupiter wrapping up his 12 month visit on the 16th July, this is the push to not only get things up to speed for the year, but on the track they'll continue on for the next decade. Before the Sun leaves your home and family sector on the 23rd July both Mercury and Venus will return, with your heart and mind becoming engaged. Mercury, who returns on the 13th July, brings his articulation and intellectual savvy into play just 3 days before Jupiter leaves, but after spending nearly 3 weeks here last month, he's already spent time helping with the ideas, mental focus and getting the communication lines open. Venus on the other hand won't return until the 19th July, returning after Jupiter has left and on a mission to scoop up any opportunities this has triggered. In the meantime, lucky Jupiter embarks on a brand new mission on the 16th July, one that the Sun will join him on, on the 23rd July. For it's then that Jupiter will return to your romantic and creative sector, for the first time since his last visit, from August 2002 to August 2003. This kicks off your luckiest year for love and matters of the heart in over a decade and with Mars finally wrapping up his longest visit to your relationship sector in 3 decades on the 26th July, the love gods will create some interesting times midmonth.
There is no doubt that the two major events and especially when it comes to game changing developments, are the shift in focus that both Jupiter and Mars, the planets of luck and passion will make this month, changing the complete timbre of the year. In Jupiter's case, where the planet of luck and expansion is in our chart is where the focus is, our opportunities and the greatest opportunity for growth and to start with, his departure from your communication sector and return to your home and family sector on the 16th July won't seem so game changing, for this is where the focus always is at this time of year. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of July in your communication sector before shifting the solar focus onto home and family matters on the 23rd July. Yet with Jupiter returning on the 16th July and kicking off your biggest, most expansive and important year for home and family matters before the Sun gets there, you should see signs that this is anything but an annual update and that something much bigger is developing. A New Moon on the 27th July, the first involving Jupiter since 2003, creates an opportunity for new beginnings, a fresh start and to draw a major new line in the sand. Just a day after the New Moon Mars will finally wrap up his longest visit to your work sector in 3 decades, returning to your relationship sector in time to play his part in bringing relationship matters up to speed and where you've fallen asleep at the wheel to shake things up a bit. In the meantime, Mars will be working to gain as much traction on the work front as possible and with Venus in your income sector until the 19th July she'll be looking to ensure that a helping of work opportunities comes with a generous side dish of income opportunities as well.
While this is always a time of year when the focus is on income matters, with the Sun in your income sector until the 23rd July, this year there is added pressure and opportunities to smash your way through any remaining glass ceilings. After returning to your income sector in June 2013 lucky Jupiter is finally wrapping things up and before leaving on the 16th July, will be working to get you to believe in yourself and in what you're worth, not only when it comes to income matters but across all the currencies in your life. While Jupiter will leave on the 16th July and won't return for another 11 years, his legacy will live on and with Mercury and his smart head for money returning on the 13th July and Venus and her ability to trigger the laws of attraction returning on the 19th July, the money gods will continue to work with you to extract every possible advantage. In the meantime Jupiter, who changes signs once a year and is responsible for the main thrust of any year, is shifting his focus to your communications, which will remain an important theme right through to August 2015. The Sun's return to your communication sector on the 23rd July will help cement this new era, which is something that your personal and professional relationships and all your connections with others will benefit from. In the meantime, Jupiter is not the only planet to create a major shift in focus of the year to date, with Mars finally wrapping up his epic 8 month visit to your romantic sector on the 26th July. It's then that Mars will shift his focus to work matters, creating a situation where he's been firing up your professional passions and fighting spirit, giving you a chance to not only make up for lost time but give you a jump on work matters that don't usually kick off until September each year. This will see work matters gain some real momentum, at a time when the money gods are working to secure every possible income advantage.
July is always your month and whether you are a June or a July born Cancerean, this is the month where the Sun will spend the majority of time in your sign, when you have a chance to take your power back and move into a new solar year with a new sense of purpose. This year there is a chance to commit to far more than simply the year ahead, for with Jupiter leaving your sign on the 16th July and wrapping up a 12 month visit aimed at launching a brand new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, this is a chance to commit to the future itself. While the Sun is looking only to the next 12 months and the journey that this new solar year will take you on, Jupiter is looking to the next decade and beyond and together they're asking that you draw a new line in the sand, take your power back and make a commitment to walking the talk. While Mercury will return to your sign on the 13th July and Mercury on the 19th July, ensuring that heart and mind are on the same page and both engaged in the details of how you'll move forward, the Sun and Jupiter are both off on a completely different agenda. On the 16th July Jupiter will return to your income sector for the first time since August 2003, kicking off your luckiest and most expansive income year in over a decade, as well as expand a sense of entitlement across all the currencies in your life. By the time the Sun returns on the 23rd July, for an annual update that happens at this time every year, Jupiter will have been here for a week, with the solar spotlight revealing from the get go that your luck has changed. This is when a lot of the professional investment you've made over recent years and will continue to make for years to come, will start to bear fruit. However, don't think that life will suddenly become all about the money or that you'll get away with keeping your professional hat on 24/7, for with Venus, planet of love in your sign from the 19th July and here when Mars returns to fire up your romantic and creative passions, you'll need to seriously look at finding the right balance between work and play.
This is the month that you've not only been waiting for all year, but for several years now, the month where you'll not only move into a new solar year on the 23rd July, but just 7 days earlier you'll move into a brand new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion and your luckiest and most important year in over a decade. For on the 16th July Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion will return to your sign, where he'll spend the next 12 months laying down the foundations for a 12 year chapter full of new possibilities and potential. With Jupiter in your sign until August 2015, you're entering a gateway year into your future, making the Sun's return to your sign just 7 days later and the birthday month this triggers your most important solar return in over a decade. Yet as you move into the new month you're still in the closing weeks of both your current solar year and a Jupiter cycle that began in August 2002, with the job of closing old doors, looking back and reflecting on the journey so far reaching its most important and critical stage. Where Jupiter has spent the last 12 months bringing things to a close, the Sun is only in your sector of subconscious thinking, imagination and review for a month, with a new sense of urgency setting in as you progress into the month. With this is likely to come a sense of impatience, as you sense that it's time to move on. While this will lend itself to a lot more navel gazing, with Mercury in a social and serendipitous part of your chart until the 13th July and Venus until the 19th July, there'll be no danger of losing touch with the real world. This is also an important month for ensuring that the communication lines are open, especially when it comes to sharing ideas. Meanwhile, a Full Moon in your work sector on the 12th July will give anything stalled or pending a timely push, bringing work matters to a head or to a tipping or turning point.
As you move into the month the main areas of focus are going to be professional, income and social matters, which is where the most urgency and cosmic focus is directed, yet by the time the month comes to an end the pace of the year itself will have eased back, making July a real transitional month, where the tone of the year itself changes. To begin with, while the Sun left your career sector last month and until Mercury leaves on the 13th July, wrapping up his double dip visit and Venus on the 19th July, there are still loose ends to tie up, knowing that once they leave there will be no more planetary activity in either of your professional houses for the rest of the year. This is going to create some real urgency on the professional front and possibly even pressure, as you work to put things on the track you want them to continue on. This comes just as Mars is in the final weeks of his epic 8 month visit to your income sector, where he'll be working to extract every possible advantage and smash through any remaining glass ceilings before leaving on the 26th July. When Mercury and Venus leave your career sector they'll join the Sun in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking, where your most important year for both personal and professional networking is running its course. For this is where Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion has been since June 2013, with the Sun having returned late last month to help bring things home. While Venus and Mercury will keep the social theme in play for the rest of the month, both the Sun and Jupiter, the two most influential forces in the solar system, will take a very different step, each returning to a reflective, intuitive and imaginative part of your chart, the Sun on the 23rd July to begin the month long process of winding down your current solar year and Jupiter on the 16th July, to begin the 12 month job of winding down a Jupiter cycle that began in August 2003.
As you move into July you're not just moving into a new month or even just into the second half of the year, but to the real turning point of the year. For 2014 is a year where there really is a line being drawn down the middle, with some dramatic shifts this month that will change the makeup of the year itself. While there is constant change as the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through the different areas of your chart, the rest of the solar system has been surprisingly stable so far this year, with no other movements or changes at all, apart from the Moon's constant movement. Yet this month two planets that have been in the same position all year change sign and with this everything changes. The first change is Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion who has been in your career sector since June 2013, keeping the focus firmly on your professional situation, with his departure on the 16th July bringing to an end a year that will define your professional reality for the next decade and beyond. However, this is not something that either you or Jupiter will need to do on your own, for you will always find the Sun in your career sector at this time of year, with Mercury returning on the 13th July and Venus on the 19th July to help tie up loose ends, ensure no opportunity has been overlooked or missed. This is a process that will continue right through until mid August, which Mars' return to your income sector on the 26th July will allow you to benefit from financially, finally. In the meantime, Mars will spend the majority of the month wrapping up your longest Mars return in 3 decades, with the warrior planet of the cosmos' final weeks all about identifying what excites you, your passions and your fighting spirit. In the meantime, Jupiter's return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on the 16th July and the Sun's on the 23rd July begins a major shift in cosmic focus, away from professional matters and onto your human interactions, with both personal and professional networking becoming a lot more important.
Despite the fact that, as is the case at this time of year, there is a real sense of adventure in the air and this will remain the case all month, you have reached not only the most important professional month of the year, but in over a decade, bringing you back to conditions you last saw between August 2002 and August 2003. As you move into July the Sun will always be in your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery and with lucky Jupiter here since June 2013 the last 12 months has been all about the journey and in the early weeks of the month there is zero signs of just how dramatic the shift in professional focus is going to be. If anything you are more likely to have your money hat on rather than your professional hat, for with Mercury in your financial sector until the 13th July and Venus until the 19th July, this is where heart and mind are focused, with Mercury's smart head for money and Venus' financial desires and expectations giving you a chance to take your power back and take ownership of money matters. Not only is there nothing to suggest a professional come back in the early weeks of the month, but chances are even the thought of it will leave you feeling exhausted, for as Mars moves into his final weeks in a reflective part of your chart and the longest wind down of a Mars cycle drags on, you could be running on empty. However, everything changes on the 16th July when Jupiter returns to your career sector, kicking off your luckiest, most expansive and powerful professional year in over a decade. He'll be joined a week later by the Sun on the 23rd July, throwing the solar spotlight on your professional situation as he does at this time every year. However, the real game changer will be Mars' return to your sign on the 26th July, returning with a fresh supply of drive, passion and fighting spirit, along with a chance for new beginnings.
While the Sun left your relationship sector late last month Mercury and Venus, the planets of communication and love are staying on to tie up loose ends, to establish what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and to help you walk the talk, knowing that once they leave you're on your own for the rest of the year. This will come at a time when you also need to have your money hat on, for while this is always a time of year when the solar spotlight is on your financial situation and money matters, with lucky Jupiter leaving your financial sector on the 16th July and not returning for another 11 years, there is a real need to take your power back. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of July in your financial sector, so this is a time of year when there is always a lot more financial scrutiny and awareness. While Jupiter will leave on the 16th July and the Sun on the 23rd July, with Mercury and his smart head for money returning on the 13th July and Venus and your financial desires and ability to trigger the laws of attraction returning on the 19th July, once you establish what's possible and where things stand, walking the talk shouldn't be a problem. In the meantime, both the Sun and Jupiter will be as happy to shift their focus off your money game as you will be, especially when you realise where they're going next. Your life will change completely and radically on the 16th July when Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion and your ruling planet returns to your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery, the area of your chart that is ruled by Jupiter and is therefore dear to the heart of every Sagittarian. This opens the door to your most exciting, expansive and adventurous year in over a decade and with Jupiter not due to leave until August 2015, this is the start of a journey towards making memories that you'll continue to dine out on for the rest of your life. By the time the Sun returns a week later on the 23rd July, the journey of a lifetime will have begun.
You have a busy month on your hands with a lot of focus on work, career, financial and relationship matters, each with a really valid claim for wanting your full attention. Yet the one thing you can afford to do as you move into the new month is to keep your money hat off, knowing that it won't be until mid month that the money gods show up, but also that once they do the consequences will be game changing. This allows you to focus more on your relationships and professional matters, putting money aside in the meantime, as you address more pressing matters. The focus will always be on your relationships at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of July in your relationship sector. However, with Jupiter wrapping up his 12 month visit to your relationship sector on the 16th July, showing up and giving your relationships 100 percent of your attention is imperative. For while Mercury will return to your relationship sector on the 13th July and Venus on the 19th July, putting the planets of communication and love in charge of bringing everything together, until Jupiter leaves on the 16th July you're defining what you want from your relationships and what they need from you for the coming decade. Before shifting their focus onto your relationships Venus and Mercury are working to tie up loose ends on the work front and as the last planets to move through your work sector for the year, this is something they are taking seriously. Where Venus is giving you a clear sense of where your heart stands and triggering the laws of attraction, Mercury has the intellectual savvy that allows you to work smarter and make informed choices, decisions and plans. This comes just as Mars is finally bringing home his epic 8 month visit to your career sector, where he'll be fuelling your professional passions and fighting spirit right through to his departure on the 26th July. Meanwhile, Jupiter's return to your financial sector on the 16th July will kick off your luckiest and most expansive financial year in over a decade, with the Sun's return a week later turning the lights on and revealing what you have to work with.
While the first half of the month is going to see a battle to find a balance between work and play continue on from last month, there is something even stronger developing that brings a need to take a whole new look at how you balance your professional and personal lives. July is always a month where the focus is on work matters, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of July in your work sector, but with Jupiter wrapping up his 12 month visit on the 16th July, a year that will define your work, job and employment reality for the next decade and beyond, this needs your serious attention. Yet with Mercury remaining in a playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until the 13th July and Venus until the 19th July, some balance is required. Yet in all seriousness, the balance of power does need to be on work matters, for while Venus and Mercury will return to your romantic sector every year, it will be another 11 years before Jupiter returns to your work sector so you need to make it count. Yet it's while Venus, planet of love is on her own in your romantic sector that she and your personal life get a very lucky break, for while the Sun and Mercury will stay on to keep things moving on the work front, on the 16th July lucky Jupiter will return to your relationship sector, beginning your luckiest, most expansive and important relationship year in over a decade. By the time the Sun returns to your relationship sector on the 23rd July to begin what is his annual relationship review, it will be clear that everything has changed. At the same time, while this will see the Sun and Jupiter leave your work sector, with Mercury returning on the 13th July, Venus on the 19th July and Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos finally returning to your career sector on the 26th July, your professional year is still gathering strength and momentum.
While July will always be a month of contrasts for you, beginning with very playful, creative and romantic forces in play but ending with the focus on work matters, nothing in the last 12 years has prepared you for the extreme shift in focus you're likely to experience this month. To begin with, you will move into the new month with no planetary activity in either of your professional houses and no support at all, with the Sun not only making his annual visit to your romantic and creative sector but lucky Jupiter in his final and most urgent weeks in your home and family sector and the focus still on home and family matters. With matters of the heart and domestic matters dominating, work matters will be way down the list of priorities. This makes it important to address home and family matters, working with Mercury until he leaves your home and family sector on the 13th July to ensure the communication lines are open and until Venus leaves on the 19th July, establishing where your heart stands and creating something special. While this may seem very routine and not that important now, considering how busy the next 12 months are going to be, having the basics right and the right work/life balance is more important than you realise. It's on the 16th July that everything begins to change when, just 7 days before the Sun is due to wrap up his annual visit to a playful and romantically charged part of your chart and return to the more serious job of looking at work matters, lucky Jupiter beats him to it. There will be no planetary activity in either of your professional houses when Jupiter returns to your work sector to kick off your luckiest, busiest and most important year for work matters in over a decade, making the shift very obvious and dramatic. By the time the Sun returns to your work sector on the 23rd July you'll be aware that something has shifted and the journey to success will have begun. While Venus and Mercury won't return to your work sector until next month, keeping up a vain attempt to find a balance between work and play, a New Moon on the 27th July will bring a real call to action.
