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
This month you will stop everything, sit down, and meditate about money, and you may be saying to yourself, how can I make more? First, you have to know what you have and what you spend. Unlike the financial signs of Taurus, Scorpio, and Capricorn, you generally don’t enjoy taking time to think deeply about financials, for you live in the world of philosophy, ideas, and concepts. Still, with two major eclipses this month landing in each of your two financial houses, you will likely be motivated to examine the books. Change is coming, but with a little thinking, the change can be positive.
A solar eclipse is always a new moon, but not all new moons are eclipses. We typically have four to six eclipses (both solar and lunar) a year, and astrologers know that eclipses have the strength of three new moons (or full moons) rolled into one. When an eclipse comes up, we pay attention. They force us to move forward with no option to return to former circumstances. Eclipses bolt the door on the past.
The job of an eclipse is to bring certain truths to the surface that you didn’t know, or you did know but ignored certain signs that would have benefitted you to investigate. Eclipses are the wild cards of the zodiac, and when they bring truth to the surface, sometimes that truth is shocking, say, if someone has been dipping their hand into your bank account. Eclipses are there to protect you.
You had a similar set of eclipses nineteen years ago—July 1, 2000, and July 16, 2000. Can you recall anything that happened back then that affected your finances? Life never repeats exactly, but if you can discern a theme that emerged, you may see it echoed this month.
The first eclipse, July 2, will be a total eclipse of the Sun in Cancer, 11 degrees, and bring up a financial opportunity to your eighth house of jointly-held money. The funds would come to you outside of salary, arriving in a large one-time chunk of cash. This part of your chart rules not only large sums you receive (usually needed to fund a dream, like a mortgage or university financial aid package, for example) but also points to money you would need to pay out.
