THE STARS for July 2023 Horoscope
Welcome to July
The month ahead offers us all a HUGE turning point. July is a month to lean into your heart, be brave, and make choices.
Get ready to contemplate your personal purpose and direction and what your most valued relationships look like. It’s time to ask yourself, what and who you really want to be in business with? But whilst you do so, you’ll need a healthy dose of patience. The energies are a mix of yearning to move towards new endeavours but feeling restricted as you’re forced to pause and tidy up loose ends or tend to the details.
Things get off to an explosive and somewhat confusing start with partnerships and finances taking unexpected twists and turns. Changes that occur around the Capricorn Full Moon on the 3rd can feel erratic and arouse a sense of instability. Whilst shakeup is uncomfortable, it’s important to trust that new pathways always unfold as a result. Eventually more positive relations and new opportunities to build wealth will avail themselves.
Mid-month on the same day as the New Moon in Cancer on July 18, the Nodal Axis changes signs. This occurs every 18 months and reveals new points of growth and transformation on an individual and societal level. Currently the Nodes are on the financial axis (Taurus/Scorpio) and we’ve experienced enormous economic shifts but simultaneously there’s been a surge in individuals valuing themselves and branching out into new endeavours. Plus society has turned its attention to more seriously looking after the planet, animals and resources than it has in over 200 years. When the Nodes change signs they enter the “Me versus We” axis (Aries/Libra). The north node in Aries is all about believing in oneself, having the courage to follow your dreams, to start new ventures and discover new ways of being. The south node in Libra will offer an opportunity to let go of old ways of relating to others that no longer serve us. For clues as to how you’ll grow over the coming 18 months, think back to what was going on for you personally and professionally during 2005 and first half of 2006.
A few days after the Nodes change signs, Venus commences her lengthy retrograde in Leo from 23 July to 4 September. For 6 weeks the Venusian topics of relationships, self-worth and finances will be up for review. Given she’s in the sign of Leo, this will arouse the passion in individuals to courageously follow their hearts and chase their dreams. Leo is all about leadership – believing in your ability to create something amazing. So, what are you ready to bravely create at this point in your life? Don’t you deserve more joy and wonder in your everyday life both at work and at home?

Welcome to July 2023 Aries.
Up until July 23 the spotlight is on your homelife, family and doing what you need to take time out to nourish yourself. It’s a good idea to honour that because from the 23rd when the Sun ingresses into Leo it’s time to get out into the world, get creative and have more fun!!!
On July 10, your ruling planet Mars activates your health and wellbeing sector bringing a boost of energy and focus to your daily routine.
Mid-month, the North Node ingresses into Aries and South Node into Libra. For the next 18 months, you will have the opportunity to align with your Career/Business Purpose and Direction. For those of you who have been contemplating changing careers or business direction, new opportunities will open up that are a better fit with your values and long-term vision of what you want to create. Equally, you’ll no longer tolerate working with others whose values are misaligned with your own. Where once you may have tolerated differences in order to climb a ladder or earn a big salary, your priorities are changing and it’s more important to do work that is meaningful and impactful. Inauthenticity won’t cut it any more.
By the end of the month your desire to move forward in a new direction is strong. However, when Mars opposes Saturn on July 21 – there’s likely a number of hoops you have to jump through to achieve your desires. Patience will be a virtue. This is further intensified from July 23 through to Sept 4 with Venus retrograde which can bring old friendships and professional relationships out of the woodwork. You can be proactive with this and reach out to colleagues (current and past) and clients – new ideas and ventures await by the end of the retrograde.
The Full Moon in Capricorn on July 3 illuminates your professional reputation and career sector. On the one hand this can be the culmination of years of hard work finally bearing the fruits of all of your efforts. But on the other, emotions can rise up as you experience tension trying to balance your home life with your career. This is a powerful time to release any negative emotions or trauma related to roles or professional experiences where you weren’t fully valued or things just didn’t work out. Consider it an opportunity to clear the decks!
The New Moon in Cancer on July 18 is your annual opportunity to set home and family goals for the coming 12 months.
