Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
The reason for the long visit from Mars to this area of your chart is that from September 9 to November 13 Mars will be retrograde, and in doing so, will slow down all the activities you are involved in at the time. Mars retrograde is considered a bad time for a major business deal or launch, or even to forge a new relationship. Stick to the status quo in your personal and business life for now. If you’re putting on a fundraiser, you would do best in late July and August, and again in the last week of November and December.
It will be fine to develop an ongoing relationship or to reignite a former alliance during Mars retrograde, but it is not the time to start a new one. It might be frustrating to know you will need to sit tight, but with a slowdown on the way, plan your biggest initiations for your best period—the second half of July through August—or hold off until December, your next favorable month.
The new moon on July 20 is not an eclipse, so it will not have a far-reaching effect. This new moon will give you an opportunity to make money from a new source. However, this is a tough new moon, and if you do take a new job or assignment, it will involve strenuous duties, and you will need to handle a great deal of responsibility. Identify your greatest talents—ones that few people possess—and, if you can, find a position that allows you to showcase those unique qualities, as this will give you the financial security you want to build. If you are in the middle of a court case or trying to recover money owed to you, you may be surprised by the tug-of-war you encounter, and you might even need to hire a lawyer to represent you.
Venus in Gemini will make you charming, and in that respect, you may be able to diffuse some of the push-pull I see as a dominant theme this month. You will have considerable help from certain aspects, so don’t feel overwhelmed—just keep to the program and remain honest and transparent. Sometimes the results are in the hands of the planetary angels. Have faith that there is justice in this universe.
