You’ve been in the midst of a highly social phase in July, and now your attention is going to turn more toward your family. It’s not that you’re going to stop meeting and greeting your pals and people in the neighborhood, but that your home life is going to become more active. Even if you’re single and live alone, your home should be your castle and you’ll be highly motivated to turn it into one.
That’s because luxury-loving Venus glides into your domesticity sector on Tuesday, followed by Mercury the next day. When the Sun joins them on the 22nd, you’re going to be determined to not only beautify your place, but to rid yourself of any toxic influences that might be disturbing the peace. Such as: loud neighbors, warring children, intrusive parents, and unresponsive landlords and contractors. The good news is that Mercury and Venus will form a tag team that will enable you to speak your mind with clarity and diplomacy. There won’t be a need for screaming, and with Uranus active in your house of intuition, you’ll be able to quietly figure things out that may be hidden.
Sunday and the early part of the week are wonderful for partnering with others, on a romantic basis as well as for business or charity. Optimistic Jupiter is in your house of romance, helping singles find a new love and couples to have more fun and relaxation in their relationship. It’s also a good time to bond with children, taking them to a local park or playground and giving them the opportunity to talk. You might consider joining a neighborhood association, church group, or even entering into a business alliance with someone else. Chatty Mercury will be in your communication sector through Tuesday, so get the conversations going now. You can firm them up after the messenger planet moves into Leo this week.
There are two tough days, though, and they both have the same kind of energy: Monday and Saturday. Your head and your heart may be telling you two different things, courtesy of a square between Uranus and planets in your third house. This could fall in any part of your life, from the office to friendships to love. Remember that your intuition is strong these days, but your intellect and rational thought processes are too. Which one to trust? You need to make sure that you’re getting the full scoop from someone, and this may be difficult. Watch out for passive-aggressive types and frenemies who may be more interested in their agenda than anything else.
But Saturday is awesome for connecting with a lover, whether it’s a new face or someone who’s been in your life for awhile. The Sun trines Mars, the best angle possible. It just so happens that Venus and Mercury conjunct (line up) in the heavens the same day, which is excellent for combining romance with residential matters. Some of you may move in together, decide to buy a place, or agree to resolve some kind of family-related matter, such as those toxic influences I was referring to before. With next week’s full moon in the most expansive part of your chart, you’re going to want to move ahead without baggage tying you down. Toss it now.
