Your July Horoscope Is Here—and It's GOOD

Updated 03/24/17

At MyDomaine, we want to prepare you for all of life’s challenges, and what better way to do that then get 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, Rose Theodora. If you’re changing careers, moving into a new home, or getting married, consider yourself in good hands. Ahead, Theodora shares what to expect this month—and what you'll need to get through it.

July is Cancer season—ruling all things home and family. The zodiac sign is synonymous with emotion, self-nurture, self-trust, and instinct. When the sun and planets Venus and Mercury all reside in Cancer, it's time to feel safe, even when we're vulnerable. We're learning to value our emotions and to trust that expressing vulnerability means we're opening ourselves to a life that's richer and more authentic.

July is all about getting emotionally healthy and valuing our emotions and those of others. There will be a new moon on July 4, just in time for Independence Day! It's no surprise that the birth of the United States falls under the sign Cancer—the sign of the mother and the home. July is not only about emotional wellness, it's also about caring for your home, and devoting time and energy to your family and friends.

There will be a full moon on July 19 in Capricorn, Cancer's opposite sign. Capricorn shows us what has been maturating in our lives and where we need to be responsible, but it also speaks to where we control our emotions rather than express them. Like any full moon, you'll want to let go of something to make room for more balance—in this case, you should strive to balance your work and home life. See what's in store for you this month, and pick up your power product to help you make the most of it.

July is about family matters. The new moon on July 4 allows you to go deep and to connect with your loved ones. Work will take a backseat, and it should. Focus on showing more vulnerability, expressing your true feelings, and getting in touch with your inner child. Bouts of anger may surface, but try to channel them creatively—the key here is to embrace nostalgia. Recall what it was like to be a child, to play, to trust blindly, to follow your bliss. Optimal dates to express your creativity are July 11, when you'll free mentally lighter.

Remember: more feeling and less reacting in July.

Patience is your greatest virtue, and so is perseverance—you'll need it this month. As an earth sign, you're always preoccupied with money, but this month, you need to stay open and flexible with your finances, particularly between July 7 to 11. During the last two weeks of the month, you can expect to receive support from family members. Try to focus less on money and more on orchestrating a work/life balance, which you will achieve in July. Redecorate your home, connect with your parents, be more patient with your partner, and give others the same freedom that you wish to have—especially when it comes to communication.

Stay in and rest a while; it will soothe your nerves.

The new moon on July 4 will give you a jump-start, and you should finally start to see some returns on your efforts. In the meantime, focus on reconnecting with family and expressing your heartfelt feelings. Things are still settling, but communication strengthens after the July 22. Create a vision board to gain a clearer understanding of your goals.

Your home is always extremely important to you, but this month will be about finding your comfort in the world, and feeling confident about who you are. Let go of whatever you no longer need and embrace who you want to become. Focus on creating a solid psychological home that allows you to go anywhere.

July is a thriving month for you. You have more energy, more directed passion, and want nothing more than to move forward on your plans. Mars, your ruling planet, was in retrograde from April 14 until June 29, and it recently woke up. This means you're anxious to get the ball rolling. Patience will be key this month, and so will be channeling your energy properly and avoiding any unnecessary fighting. Be loving and patient when it comes to your significant other.

On July 22, your career will become your focal point. Until then, nurture your relationships. The new moon on July 4 will be especially potent for you, highlighting your resources and igniting your passion about commitment.

Your focus in July should be to become more well-rounded. For example, becoming physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially fit. You're not one to sacrifice your personal freedom, and you will typically shy away from anything that threatens your independence. However, you'll need to make an exception in July, especially after the 22nd. If you're single, it looks like someone is interested in you. Work on opening yourself up more and nurturing all aspects of yourself so that you feel more confident and secure about sharing yourself with someone else.
