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 in your July horoscope this month—and what you’ll need to get through it.
This month, we’re transitioning from Cancer to Leo. Both signs represent love and devotion—whether behind the scenes like Cancer, or in the spotlight like Leo. It’s all about the face you show to the world versus what you feel inside. Remember, they don’t have to be so different! This month, see how close you can get to bringing them into alignment.
The shift between the two will be even more pronounced than usual, thanks to a tricky Mercury retrograde that moves through both signs. It’ll start in Leo on the 7th, then backtrack into Cancer on the 19th. This energy will help you clarify what you feel comfortable sharing and what you prefer to keep to your “close friends” setting, both online and IRL. A Cancer solar eclipse on the 2nd and a Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th also highlight work-life balance, helping you draw out some boundaries between who you are at the office and at home.
By the time Mercury is direct again on the 31st, you’ll be so much clearer on your intentions for each area of your life. Even better, a Leo new moon that same day infuses some much needed fun back into your daily grind. (Did someone say vacation days?) In the meantime, be sure to follow the most basic Mercury retrograde rules: be on high alert for tech snafus, expect delays, and think before you speak or type. Do that, and this high-intensity month will be relatively smooth sailing!
You’re in for a month of dramatic shifts, thanks to high-energy Mars taking up residence in your spotlight-stealing fifth house on the 1st! It’s joined by tricky Mercury retrograde on the 7th, bringing heart-fluttering feelings that are equal parts exciting and totally nerve-wracking. Is your crush into you, or just being friendly? Take it slow, especially once Mercury backtracks into your tender fourth house on the 19th. Once it’s direct again on the 31st, you’ll know just what to do—plus, a Leo new moon that same day gives you a much-needed romantic refresh.
Meanwhile, the Cancer solar eclipse in your emotions zone on the 2nd reconnects you to the people, places, and things that truly feel like home. You’ll be glad to have support when Capricorn lunar eclipse lights up your career zone on the 16th, calling you to take on more responsibility at work. Whether you get a promotion at the office or decide to switch professional lanes altogether, you’ll be happy with your new direction in the long run.
If you’ve been waiting to make a big announcement, mark the 2nd on your calendar! The stars give you the perfect opportunity to tell your story thanks to a Cancer solar eclipse in your communication zone—or, you could get some surprising news yourself. Luckily, Venus into Cancer the same day ensures it’s a happy message. That said, Mercury retrograde in your sensitive fourth house on the 7th means what you learn could stir up some unexpected emotions. If you’re been putting off self-care, this is your cue to put on your out-of-office message and treat yourself to some hard-earned rest.
Under the Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th, give into your wanderlust and go on a trip. If you can’t get away, taking a class or exploring a new philosophy has the same healing effect. You might have to play catch-up once Mercury backslides into your tech zone on the 19th, but having to resend or reschedule a few things feels so much easier after a vacation. You’ll get back on track once Mercury is direct on the 31st, and Leo new moon that same day helps you fall in love with your home all over again.
When the Cancer solar eclipse lights up your money zone on the 2nd, your earning capacity takes a huge step up, along with your confidence. Even better, the Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th delivers a windfall thanks to smart investing on your part—one big enough to float your business for quite a while. Don’t doubt for a second that you’ve earned it, Gemini!
You might have to deal with a few people who are jealous of your newfound success with Mercury retrograde in your connection zone on the 7th, but just ignore the naysayers. When it backtracks into your net- and self-worth sector on the 19th, wait to ink any new deals until you’re feeling more positive. Once Mercury is direct again on the 31st, your optimistic outlook springs back into action, and a Leo new moon that same day connects you to VIPs who can help you make the most of your Midas touch.
By the time the month is over, your life will be totally golden!
Take a look around, Cancer. By the time this month is over your life is going to look very different, thanks to a powerful total solar eclipse in your sign on the 2nd! You’re about to change at lightspeed, accomplishing goals you’d only dreamed of just a year prior. Venus into your sign inspires you to make an outer change to reflect your inner shift, like a dramatic haircut or wardrobe update. It’s best if you do it before Mercury retrograde begins on the 7th, especially since it’ll land in your budget-minded second house.
After that, save your pennies so you can splurge later on in the month.
Under the Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th, the stars remind you that relationships are all about balance. If someone isn’t pulling their weight, maybe it’s time to part ways. You might doubt your decision once Mercury backtracks into your sign on the 19th, but once it’s direct again on the 31st, you’ll be so happy you put yourself first. Even better, a Leo new moon gives you the cosmic all-clear to move forward with that makeover!
You’ve always felt most at home in the spotlight, but under this month’s stars, don’t forget to cherish your time offstage, too. Fierce Mars into your sign on the 1st ramps up your motivation, but a Cancer solar eclipse on the 2nd in your self-care zone reminds you that any progress you make has to be sustainable. If you need to course-correct, Mercury retrograde in your sign from the 7th will help you reevaluate your priorities and update your goals accordingly.
You’ll see results fast, once the Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th pings the part of your horoscope associated with health and habits. Any upgrades you make to the way you nourish your body are about to seriously pay off, especially when Mercury retrograde backtracks into your healing twelfth house on the 19th! Once the Sun and Venus move into your sign on the 22nd and 27th, you’ll be undeniably radiant. Best of all, a new moon in your sign and Mercury direct on the 31st ensure your birthday month will be one of your best this year.
How’s that for a gift from the universe?
This month, you’re working out the balance of how much to give and how much to take. With a sensitive Cancer solar eclipse activating your groups sector on the 2nd, the stars encourage you to step more fully into a leadership role, whether it’s at the office or in your circle of friends. In that spirit, Mercury retrograde in your self-care sector from the 7th encourages you to set some proactive boundaries with your crew over the course of the next few weeks.
If you do it right, those boundaries will free you up to work on creative projects you’ve put on the back burner or—even better—indulge in some romantic evenings, especially under the Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th. That said, Mercury backtracking into your friendship zone on the 19th means it’s best to tread lightly with new connections and focus on rekindling old ones instead, at least until it’s direct again on the 31st. Whoever you choose to spend your time with inspires a magical perspective shift thanks to a Leo new moon that same day.

Meanwhile, a Capricorn lunar eclipse in your tender fourth house on the 16th could find you more sensitive than usual. You might have to give your family, your home, or even yourself a little extra TLC. Fortunately, Venus into your friendly eleventh house on the 27th soothes any lingering social anxiety. Once Mercury is direct and the Leo new moon lights up the sky on the 31st, it’s all smooth sailing!
You’re always driven, but when intense Mars moves into your career zone on the 1st, you'll want to accomplish everything on your to-do list at once—but Mercury retrograde in the same part of your horoscope from the 7th means you’ll encounter a few delays before you can check any of those boxes. You realize you’re way overcommitted when it moves into your expansion sector on the 19th, but by the time it’s direct again on the 31st, you’ll have culled your responsibilities to only the things within your “zone of genius.” Remember, it’s okay to say no sometimes!
