A Note from Susan Miller
This will be a big month, for we have two major eclipses, one July 2 in Cancer, and the other July 16 in Capricorn. Eclipses are a big deal in astrology, because they are the most dramatic tool the universe uses to shake us awake and create instant change. If you know your rising sign, read for that sign as well, for both forecasts would apply to you, and you will have a 360-degree picture of the month ahead.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
For several years, from late 2017 to early 2019, the eclipses fell in Leo and your opposite sign of Aquarius, and certain parts of your life changed. You may have felt almost forced to make adjustments. Now, a new family of eclipses has moved into Cancer and Capricorn, and they will arrive this month, lighting somewhat different and milder parts of your chart. The job of an eclipse is to see what is outworn and no longer relevant to your current life, sweep it out, and bring in new elements. Eclipses also deliver revelations to your door, and once you have that information, the entire complexion of the matter changes and brings a sudden eureka moment.
You won’t feel every eclipse in the same way. You will barely feel some, and others may bring massively important life changes and opportunities. For either eclipse to affect you powerfully, you would need a natal planet or moon in Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra within five degrees of 11 degrees (first eclipse), or within five degrees of 24 degrees (second eclipse). All eclipses seem to bring news out of the blue, often due to events happening in the outside world over which you have no knowledge or control, but that make their way to your doorstep and require you to change and adjust. With eclipses, something ends, and something else begins.
The first eclipse, on July 2, will be a new moon and a total eclipse of the Sun at 11 degrees Cancer. As a Leo, you feel solar eclipses more than lunar eclipses because your ruler is the Sun. Solar eclipses are usually happy events, for they bring opportunities and set you off in a new direction. They are all about fresh starts, while lunar eclipses are about endings and bring culminations and closure.
This solar eclipse of July 2 will light your twelfth house of secrets, so something that has been going on under the radar, out of your field of vision, might now come to your attention. Eclipses are well-known for full disclosure when information surfaces that had until then been unseen, unknown, or ignored by putting a bright spotlight on it to force focused attention.
