Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Here is an important point to always keep in mind—do not try to outrun Mercury retrograde and sign this month, right up against the beginning of the retrograde on July 7. That would be a disaster. Mercury is always in his worst, wildest state on the bookend dates of the retrograde, the ones that fall near the start and end of the retrograde. As I said, you might not be able to delay acting until August, but if you can, sign on August 6.
Changes in the source of your income and other financials are coming, due to the appearance of the solar eclipse in Cancer, July 2. You may change jobs, earn a substantial raise, or, if you are self-employed, you may see one client leave yet win a new client.
As frustrating as Mercury retrograde can be, it is not the centerpiece of the month—the two eclipses arriving July 2 and July 16 will draw your attention. Both eclipses will fall in your income sectors, so a new source is about to appear. With eclipses, often something ends, and something else begins, so you may have to give up one source of income for another.
Eclipses are the wild cards of astrology, and they come up every six months in pairs, first a new moon solar eclipse and two weeks later, a full moon lunar eclipse. Eclipses are very powerful, like a new or full moon on steroids. Often the news of an eclipse will take you by surprise, and it might take a while to assimilate and realize what you could do. A full moon will press on you to decide, but taking an extra day or two would be a good idea.
The eclipse family of signs in Cancer-Capricorn (the eclipses always fall in two signs opposite one another on the wheel) that we have now actually started last year on July 12, 2018, with the first one, a new moon solar eclipse in Cancer. You had another eclipse in this series on January 5, 2019, this year. Did anything come up at the time of these past eclipses? If you can recall something important, this month’s eclipses will advance the discussions you had on one or the other eclipse.
