Welcome to July, sultry Scorpio! Last month saw you happy in matters of romance, but such joy can only be achieved if you put down your stinger. Remember, vulnerability is not weakness. On Thursday, July 1, one of your ruling planets, warrior Mars, opposes disciplinarian Saturn. This transit could unearth hidden information, so beware of paranoia. If you find out harmless new facts about your lover, such as the fact that they dated someone you hate or have a kink that’s new to you, try not to judge them. Hold onto your happiness. New information does not equal bad information.
A new moon in Cancer (a fellow water sign) on Friday, July 9 turns your attention to your home. You pride yourself on your mysterious reputation, but during the pandemic, you tapped into your caretaker side. Use this night to stay in, whether alone or with a lover, to rest and recharge. Romance stays on your mind when messenger Mercury also enters emotional Cancer on Sunday, July 11. Tap into your creative side and express your feelings with any form of art that speaks to you, such as drawing or poetry. Having a hobby is good for your mental health.
You are the sign of sex, death, and transformation, so working with a therapist or digging deep into your trauma may not be as intimidating to you as it is to others. You’ll need to remember that when the comet Chiron, known as the “wounded healer,” goes retrograde in passionate Aries on Thursday, July 15. When Chiron goes retrograde, we are asked to process past pain in order to have a happier present and future. If anyone can do this kind of shadow work, it’s you, Scorpio. During this time, it’s important to get in touch with your friends for a strong support system; we all need each other.
When Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money, enters responsible Virgo on Wednesday, July 21, your attention turns to your finances. You may start thinking harder about that budget spreadsheet you started but never returned to. COVID-19 reminded you that you can’t control the economy, but you can keep an eye on your spending. No, this is not the sexiest news, but it’s important. When attention-loving Leo season begins on Thursday, July 22, you’ll be ready to party. But first, organize your finances so that you don’t spend too much on drinks or new outfits. Use the full moon in creative Aquarius on Friday, July 23 to set goals for your financial future.
Another date to circle on the calendar is Tuesday, July 27, when communication planet Mercury enters Leo. Rumors make you anxious, Scorpio, and you sometimes have a tendency to over-analyze. If your friends start to spill the tea and it stresses you out, just politely excuse yourself. You won’t be sitting things out for long, because when warrior Mars, the planet of fucking and fighting enters hardworking Virgo on Thursday, July 29, you’ll be ready to make love to your partner from head to toe. Enjoy, and see you in August!
