Here comes trouble. Here comes eclipses. Here comes July. I am not going to sugarcoat this. It is going to be a very challenging month, probably the most demanding and crazy one this year. We are going to adjust, change, shift, and some of us will do this in a very dramatic way. For some of us and I am again including myself here, it was a very difficult year so far. Eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn, with the North Node in Cancer and Saturn in Capricorn, near the South Node, created internal disdain, working around the clock and extreme fatigue. Saturn is at its best in Capricorn so his power is supreme, so all of this comes with a very high price and it exceeds expectations. 

Now let’s see what is happening in July for each one of us. Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius,  Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini.

Thank You for reading myLittleAstrology Blog! Please share if you enjoy! It gives me confidence, shows me that you like it and in this way, I am happy to write some more.


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles … The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again” Theodore Roosevelt 

And in July you are the one in the arena, you are the one doing and taking risks. And we have a month full of planetary chaos. The first important event will be on the 2nd of July, a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer. This one will teach you a lot about YOU, how you take care of yourself, how you appreciate you and the way you will change in order to face the new life you are creating for yourself. Eclipses shake things up and make us let go or just try something different this time. Your brain and your heart is under extreme activity. Take your time to rest and really understand why you are putting so much pressure on yourself. The second eclipse will be on the 16th of July, in Capricorn and will affect the relations you have with other people. The time is very emotional and special and you may need to take a hard decision regarding someone in your life.  Overall, the lesson in July will be about nurturing yourself. You will end something and that something will be a very important thing for you. Not a good month to start something new as Mercury will be retrograde all month. 


“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”  Roald Dahl

July is the month of eclipses, but I have some good news. Aquarius and Leo eclipses are over and out and we had the last one back in January 2019. You had the North Node in Leo so what needed to change, did change and your life is not the way it used to be anymore. There was a lot of adjustment to be made and you are still working in order to get used to the new environment. In July, there is a lot of Earth Energy coming from Capricorn and a Watery feel from Cancer. On the 2nd of July, we have a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer and we have a second eclipse on the 16th of July, in Capricorn. Eclipses bring changes, reforms, new ways of looking at things or they just uncover some truths that you were aware of. The Cancer Eclipse will make sure you are working behind the scenes and not out in the open and the Capricorn Eclipse will ensure you are able to transform your work habits, your health habits, the way you envision work and health. It is a time to take care of yourself and make sure you eat right and sleep right. But note that Saturn and the Eclipses are both giving all of us a hard time and things will not be easy, so you might experience staying at home for some health issues. Expect hard work and extra hours to turn yourself around. The good news is that Mars is in your sign from the 1st of July until the 17th of August, so you may feel empowered and optimistic and you will be able to sort things out if you try.


No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not knock those who work with him. Don’t knock your friends. Don’t knock your enemies. Don’t knock yourself. Alfred Lord Tennyson

July month is a month of transformation and things moving very slowly. We have 2 eclipses in the sky and these bring turmoil, adjustments and hard work. On the 2nd of July we have a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer and on the 16th of July we have a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. The Capricorn and Cancer energy is beneficial for you, dear Virgo. You love the Earth Energy coming from Capricorn and you also enjoy the sweetness of the Cancer one, so good vibes! This Capricorn energy may try to suppress all creativity and all creative self expression, but it can also guide you to a new set of rules or towards a brand new passion that you can exploit. Expect hard work and extra hours to make this happen. Working and taking care of children is also in the books, so make sure you find the time. The lesson in July will about children, friends, associations, groups of people that can help you in your new endeavours, maybe the creative ones. Not a good month to start something as Mercury will be in retrograde motion and a lot of planets will be in reverse motion. If you are searching for a lover or if you are expecting a child or want to conceive, you have a good time around the Lunar Eclipse on the 16th of July. 


“Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.” Harry Truman

There’s this difficult month of July ahead of us, with 2 eclipses and Mercury going retrograde. But for you, there’s a silver lining. On the 2nd of July we have a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer that is highlighting your career, your reputation and you will probably get a new job, start a new project that can get you a lot of attention from people with power and money, can just be a very successful thing that you are working on. This “thing” can be very unexpected as Uranus is involved here. Know that eclipses bring changes, reforms, new ways of looking at things so make sure you look at the opportunity in front of you in many ways before making a call. There’s also something interesting happening at home, your wife or your husband or your lover or one of your parents need you a lot these days, they want you to stop working so hard and take time off. It is a tough choice that we all have to make, but be sure to consider everything when you make a decision. Mercury is Retrograde all month so you will not be able to see things clearly and neither communicating them. The second eclipse will be on the 16th of July, in Capricorn, and this will highlight your home environment. Note that this is an emotional time and you will feel rather torn apart between work and family life. Also, make sure that you do not move, start a conversation about a new house or rent or sell. Not a good time to do that. 


I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature. Paulo Coelho

Just as this beautiful quote by Paulo Coelho, even if you know you have it in you, you need to relax and not act just now. You need to exercise patience as much as you can this month. You will have Mars, the great ruler and warrior in your reputation zone. You feel as if you deserve a better job, a better position in your company, but the stars are not yet fully aligned. Mercury is in your career zone also and will be retrograde all month, so things are going to be tough around the edges and you will not go full speed ahead. If things are going in the right direction with a new job or just a new project, please make sure you verify every detail as Mercury Retrograde and Eclipses have a way of hiding things from us. In July, we will have 2 eclipses: on the 2nd of July we have a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer and on the 16th of July, a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. Both of them are very powerful and transforming. Eclipses bring changes, reforms, new ways of looking at things and there is a probability that a new prospect of a job will show up if you travel. There’s definitely travel in the agenda for you this month, but also take care as it is not advised to travel as long as Mercury is not in direct motion. Travel for experience and to have a great story to tell and not to run away from things. 


Maturity: Be able to stick with a job until it is finished. Be able to bear an injustice without having to get even. Be able to carry money without spending it. Do your duty without being supervised. Ann Landers

Now, there’s a fine quote for you Sagittarius this month! You are always a child at heart and you do not consider money so important: you either have it and spend it or you don’t. It is only when you have one financial zodiac sign powerful in your chart that you are different. A true Sagittarius will have spent all his money on hopes and wishes and friends. We have 2 eclipses in July, both of them very powerful and both of them will transform, shift, change and adjust what we know. And for you, it is all about money. The first eclipse will point out to a source of money that is outside of your day to day salary or the way you make money. It is a large sum and you can earn it by consulting an expert that can help with advice. Uranus will be close by and this will mean that things will be unexpected. Things will not fall into your lap, you need to cross a bridge or two to get there. On the 16th of July, in Capricorn, we have a Lunar Eclipse and this will mark an important ending, you will lose an income source or something will happen around money that needs to end. It can be also a large expense that you need to deal with or something of this sort. Be very careful with all of this as Mercury will be retrograde all month so communication will be blurred and there is no way things are going to be easy.


Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into closer connection with you. Saint Augustine

Here is a very important thing for you in July: pay attention to those around you and take really good care of them. You may feel as if you are the only one in the universe and that everything happens to you and only you. And there is some truth here: you have Saturn in your sign, at home and there’s all this energy revolving around that. But there’s also a call to take care of people around you, people that you love and care about. This is actually the call from the first Eclipse of July, the one on the 2nd of July in the sign of Cancer. Start to be more patient, more caring and loving and you will get the love in return, it is just a matter of time. Note that eclipses bring changes, new ideas, new ways of looking at the same old things, so you can just try to be different and try new things in your relationships. And I am not talking only about your lover, your friends, I am also pointing out to your business partners. There’s a chance that you get married or just plan to do that, or you just decided that the partner you are with is the best one for you. As Saturn is involved, it is not going to be easy breezy and you will need to work a lot. Also, keep in mind that the Lunar Eclipse on the 16th of July can bring some sort of ending to your life. This thing needed to go away, so do not feel sorry. 


Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. George Herbert

I am always biased when it comes to writing something about Aquarius. I am Aquarius with a strong placement of Aquarius in my natal chart and my newborn son is also Aquarius. So there’s a lot at stake for me and I am actually leaving it. The North Node in Cancer and the first Solar Eclipse in Cancer on the 2nd of July will put emphasis on your health. You are not at your best and you need to take extra care to be able to be super healthy again. Any type of routine (that I hate from the bottom of my heart as a true Aquarius) is very good for you and you need to create and do not skip any daily step that you have to take. At the same time, any doctor’s appointment is good to be made in the first 10 days of this month. And cultivate patience as much as you can. The other eclipse on the 16th of July 2019 in Capricorn, near Saturn will still hold us accountable inside the house, behind the curtain and not in front of the public. But I sense some change here: I know that is hard, but we need to act, the time will never be “Just Right” and as much as you can – do the work, show up and get dressed for success. Also, be sure you try to be in agreement with your partner and business partner as Mars and Mercury Retrograde in Leo will stir things up and conflict is in the menu. Don’t get too annoyed, it’s just that the universe wants to shake things up a little. 


Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for business people looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way. Twyla Tharp

If I could just say one thing about this month is just this: create, create at a higher level, create a story, initiate a business, invent a crazy device, formulate an incredible thesis, give life to any new idea that was inside you for a very long time. This month is not an easy one, but you can just turn things around if you create! The month has 2 strong and important eclipses and Mercury Retrograde! Now there’s something you don’t see everyday in the sky. The first eclipse, on the 2nd of July is a Total Solar Eclipse and a New Moon in Cancer. You will like this energy as it has a watery feel and a very intense and emotional flavour. This is the one that can help you wonder and find something really interesting that you want to start and there’s a lot of creativity surrounding this. Eclipses bring changes, reforms, new ways of looking at things, so maybe it is an old thing that comes up in a better shape. The second eclipse on the 16th of July will be in Capricorn and this one is more emotional, intense and has a strong ending to it. Maybe you will separate from a friend or a group you belong to, maybe there are some secrets revealed about relatives or people that are close to you. Accept what it is and do not force it. Just play along. As Mercury is Retrograde do not go out in public just yet, work in silence and in your backyard and be sure not to communicate things. 


“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them — work, family, health, friends and spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls — family, health, friends, and spirit — are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.” ―Brian Dyson

In July, you really need to understand the quote above. I know that you are not the best at balancing things, but this is a time when you must do that. July is going to be challenging and it is going to ask a lot from you. You are trying to give all that you can at work, but your family, or children or husband or a special condition you have need you more than ever. The first eclipse, on the 2nd of July, in Cancer will make sure you are aware of the situation. Maybe it was hidden before, maybe you did not understand the gravity of it and you don’t know how to handle this difficult situation. But it is important to act now and to see what you can do about it. Start thinking about solutions, new ideas, new creative ways of solving this. This is not going to be easy as Mercury is Retrograde all month and Mars is there with him and Saturn is making hard aspects to the new moon, that is things are very difficult. Try thinking outside the box as much as you can. The second eclipse is in Capricorn, on the 16th of July 2019 and this is a Lunar Eclipse and marks an ending of some sort. Something at work is changing and things can be unfair for you. That is Saturn’s lesson, so take a deep breath and understand that it is what it is. 


I never do anything half-heartedly. I will continue to work hard and play hard and do everything I can to be successful, whatever I do. David Beckham

Now for you, dear Taurus, July is all about intellectual pursuits. The month is very challenging for all of us, but you have a way out of this. You have Uranus by your side and this can mean a lot of change, but also many glorious unexpected moments. Try as much as you can to play the game and have fun and expect changes and embrace them. The first eclipse is on the 2nd of July and it is total solar eclipse and a new moon, so you can actually start thinking about any intellectual project, read, write or learn as much as you can or just join a project where you can learn something new. This is going to be difficult however as Saturn is opposing this new moon and that means it needs more time than you initially booked, there is stress associated with learning this new skill, you need to adjust other parts of your life in order to learn more. Be careful if you sign any papers or you actually have a new contact that is helping as Mercury is retrograde all month and this puts extra pressure to everything. The second eclipse will be on the 16th of July, in Capricorn and this will be a Lunar Eclipse that marks an ending of some sort: you decide to leave your job, you decide to end a business or a project that you love. Also, Saturn is involved here too, so you may feel completely overwhelmed by all of this. Try to take a break at the end of the month. 


The challenge is to stay cool enough to handle the pressure in the moment so that you can succeed in the future. Jurgen Klopp

Now here’s a Gemini I love, Jurgen Klopp and his magic coaching skills and the ability to succeed against all odds. The advice for you this month is stay cool, do not try anything new, do now waste time in endless meetings, do not try to push things forward. Relax, watch the news, listen, be there if people need you, and that’s it. Mercury, your ruling planet, is going to be retrograde all month, so no matter if you see opportunity everywhere you look, note that is not a good time to take it. As Mercury will be retrograde in Leo and in Cancer that puts pressure on the way you communicate things, try to read your emails or whatever you are writing twice or more before you send them and also there’s a money issue. You need to pay someone or you need to make sure you do not borrow or lend more than you can give back. The eclipses this month are very powerful, the first is on the 2nd of July in Cancer and the second one on the 16th of July in Capricorn. These eclipses will also mark your money sector and probably you need to find a new source of income at the start of the month or just forget about another source of money at the end of the month. You are juggling a lot with this, so try not to worry too much about it and just let the energy give its best and fix things in August or the months to come.
