We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it’s which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That’s why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today’s topic: your monthly horoscope for July 2020 .
Big changes are afoot this month, thanks to the Solar Eclipse in tenderhearted Cancer on July 2 and the Lunar Eclipse in hardworking Capricorn on July 16. Under these two game-changing eclipses (plus Mercury retrograde, which runs from July 7 to July 31) we’re called to define and redefine what success truly means. As a solar eclipse is power-packed new moon and a lunar eclipse is a power-packed full moon, we can expect some significant beginnings and endings to be initiated this month courtesy of the cosmic weather.
Of course with communication planet Mercury retrograde for most of July (first in fiery Leo, then in emotional Cancer), we’re also called to do our due diligence when it comes to communication. Since Mercury retrograde is a time where the frequency of misunderstandings, miscommunication, travel delays, and tech glitches is higher than usual; this month we’re asked to exercise patience, active listening skills, and to be proactive about seeking or providing clarification as needed.
With love planet Venus entering nurturing Cancer (July 3) and multiple planets entering warmhearted Leo this month, which includes the kickoff to Leo season on July 22 and a New Moon in Leo on the 31st, one thing is for certain during this moment of change – it’s time to follow our hearts.
Happy Birthday, Leo!
