Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Now let’s turn to your career, for you appear to be dealing with plenty of work in July and August. Mars will light up your sixth house of assignments in July and continue to do so until August 17. It seems you may be waving goodbye to friends as they go off to their weekend cottages while you stay back to finish all that needs to get done. You will be flattered to be chosen for such important assignments, and you’ll be highly productive. Later you will have impressive results to show for your efforts.
As mentioned earlier, the only tough days you might encounter are when Mars will oppose Uranus on July 11 or when Uranus is in hard angle to the Sun, July 29. It seems you have an active September through December coming up, so you appear to be preparing for a launch or to unveil another major project now. While others play, you will work, and later no one will be able to figure out how you managed to pull off such a victory. It’s easy. You did it the old-fashioned way—by bearing down and concentrating. With Mercury retrograde there will be some backtracking, but it shouldn’t be too time consuming if you keep watch on what the team is doing.
My favorite day of the month for a career interview for you will be July 25, when Mars will receive a golden beam from Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck. Use this day for an interview, presentation, or other important action. Jupiter is in your prestigious tenth house of honors, awards, and achievements, and Mars is currently in your workaday sector. These two will be linked in a trine, considered the most harmonious aspect possible. In this case, work you do on a project could easily lead to admiration, applause, and publicity to boost your career. You might hear about the details of the job now, or you may have already started it and will actually be handing it in soon. Circle the date in gold, July 25.
In month that has more aspects than I can count, there is one more big one. To close the month, in comes a positive new moon, July 31, in Leo, the second new moon of the month, only this one is not an eclipse. This new moon will give you a welcome green light on a vital new project that you will be working on almost instantly in early August. You will have Mars, Venus, the Sun, and new moon all in Leo, your workaday sector, and you will have plenty of interesting work, too.
