Your July Horoscope Is Here—Here's What's in Store for You
At MyDomaine, we want to prepare you for all of life’s challenges, and what better way to do that than by getting some foresight from the stars? Each month, we’ll be bringing you your horoscope along with a power product to help you get through the month, handpicked by our resident horoscope expert, Amelia Quint. If you’re changing careers, moving into a new home, or getting married, consider yourself in good hands. Ahead, Quint shares what to expect this month—and what you’ll need to get through it.
This month, we’re transitioning from Cancer to Leo. While these two warm-hearted signs have their differences when it comes to relationships, they share a love of entertaining that none of the other zodiac signs can match. Cancer prefers more intimate gatherings to Leo’s wild shindigs, but neither can resist a good party—and what better way to kick off the season than with a summer soirée? It’s for good reason, too, because, by the end of the month, you’ll have plenty to celebrate.
It’s not all fun and games, though. On the July 1, sensitive Chiron retrogrades in the mystical sign of Pisces, pushing you to think deeper about your dreams. Just a few days later, on the July 5, Jupiter syncs up with Neptune in an awkward alignment that could feel more than a little tense. Luckily, both signs involved are very charming, so you’ll likely be able to talk your way out of this one, especially since Venus will be in smooth-talking Gemini from July 4. Mercury will enter outspoken Leo that same day, so don’t be afraid to say what you’re feeling. Leo rules fashion and the performing arts, so this is a great month to express yourself too.
On July 9, a powerful Capricorn full moon shows you where you need to step up your game. With magnetic Pluto in on the action, you attract an exciting opportunity, but you’ve got to show you’re serious about it. With Mars, the sun, and a new moon in Leo during the weekend of July 21, the work you’re doing is going to get some major visibility. By the time Mercury enters Virgo on July 25, you’ll be ready to hone in on the details of whatever you’re cooking up, and with Venus slipping into Cancer on July 31, your heart will be in full support of your new project. Put in the behind-the-scenes work now, because next month is going to be big.
Here’s an idea, Cancer—we know you love to do things by the book, but when Chiron retrograde nudges your adventure zone on the July 1, a little spontaneity could go a long way. When Neptune in that same area of your horoscope gets into an awkward position with Jupiter just a few days later, you may find that you’ve overdone things a little over the holiday weekend, but it’s nothing a few days at home won’t fix. You’ll want to be in tip-top shape because starting from July 5, you’ll have brainy Mercury, hardcore Mars, the bright sun, and a new moon in your money sector pushing you to make your hard work turn a profit. A Capricorn full moon on July 9 says you’ll get closest to this goal by working with a partner or close friend, but when Venus enters your sign on July 31, make sure you’re looking out for number one.

Luckily, you’ll have Mercury in your sign from July 5 to help you express your true feelings with ease should you choose to do so. On July 9, a powerful Capricorn full moon activates your daily habits sector, so if you’ve been considering kicking a habit for good, do it then.

On July 2, your two planetary rulers, Mars and Pluto, oppose each other in your personal philosophy and self-expression sectors, so you might feel afraid to voice those desires.
