Monthly Career Horoscopes - July 2018
July pulls out all stops to create an extraordinary month across the income, work and career fronts. This is one of those situations where a lot of different things come together at the right time, in order to create something extraordinary. This should be a fairly ordinary month or at least ordinary in context of the year itself being extraordinary. With Saturn in his first full year in your career sector in three decades, this was never an ordinary year, but there for six months now and in retrograde motion since April, Saturn and his partner Pluto are now well established in their retrograde phase. With the Sun in your home and family sector until the 23rd July, there is some pressure between your home and professional lives. However, it was the Sun's opposition with Saturn during a Full Moon in your career sector late last month, that should have flushed out any work/life balance issues. Any that do flow into this month will be known and will not be as severe as last month. This is being more than balanced by the fact that you move into the month with Ceres in your work sector and you have Venus returning on the 10th July. With the Sun not returning to your work sector until the 23rd August, this is early in the year for action on the job front. On the 1st July Juno, queen of commitment will also return to your income sector where she will give Uranus some support. Like pieces on a chess board, forces are being moved into position across the income, work and career fronts. The Moon's return to your work sector from the 16th July to the 18th July will give you an intuitive read on the new dynamics in play on the job front. Yet as is also the case with the Moon's return to your career sector from the 25th July to the 27th July, the fast moving Moon will help you read between the lines and join the dots across the income, work and career fronts.
That there is anything happening on the professional front this month is what makes this extraordinary, with what is actually happening even more extraordinary. The most active points of any professional year are surrounding the Sun and the parade of planets he brings with him, namely Mercury and Venus, who follow the Sun around the solar system. As the Sun moves through your career sector in January/February and through your work sector in September/October, these are pivotal points of any year on both fronts. Even the fact that Venus will return to your work sector on the 7th August is both exciting and extraordinary. Just Venus drawing close would be exciting, especially as returning this early in the year she will spend the majority of the next four months here. This makes it important to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as the Moon moves through your work sector from the 18th July to the 20th July. Yet what you don't expect is planetary activity on the career front now, with Mars making an extraordinary visit. The last time you moved into July with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos in your career sector was in 1971 and for the same reason. For it was 47 years ago that Mars last turned retrograde here, with his retrograde turn in the final days of June keeping him here, while opening the doors to the past, second chances and untapped professional potential. The month starts with the Moon in your career sector, aligning with Mars before leaving on the 3rd July. This will give you a chance to start the month with an intuitive read on not just Mars' retrograde turn, but the fact that things will still feel stalled. By the time the Moon comes full circle from the 27th July to the 30th July, the doors will have been open to the past for a month, with plenty to get a read on.
It is hard to say who benefits the most from having the Sun in your income sector until the 23rd July. Is it the Sun and income matters who benefit from the extraordinary support on the job and career fronts or is it job and career matters that benefit from the support on the income front? Yet there is no doubt that income, work and career forces benefit from what is an extraordinary month that won't be repeated. The Sun returns to your income sector at this time every year, but it has been 12 years since lucky Jupiter has been in your work sector at the same time and it will be another 12 years before he's here again. And while Neptune has been in your career sector since 2012, this is the only time you have Jupiter in your work sector and the Sun in your income sector at the same time. The Sun, Neptune and Jupiter are giants and coming together as a team is extraordinary. Yet there is a period in the month when this is even more extraordinary and it centres around the 11th July to the 13th July. It starts with Jupiter's direct turn in your work sector on the 11th July, just two days before a solar eclipse in your income sector on the 13th July creates the potential for an income breakthrough. While the Sun will leave your income sector on the 23rd July, Jupiter and Neptune will continue to work as a team, keeping the momentum going on the income, work and career fronts. With Neptune in retrograde motion until November, his focus will be on the past, second chances and untapped professional potential until then. While in direct motion from the 11th July until leaving on the 9th November, Jupiter is focused on job growth and on moving work and job matters forward. Between them they have the field covered on the job and career fronts.
While this is a fairly quiet month, there is every reason for confidence, with the professional gods acting more as a backup to the income developments this month is stacked full of. Since Uranus left your career sector in April, the professional gods have left a skeleton crew, with three minor planets keeping the wheels turning. With no planetary activity in your work sector since Mars left in March, work and job matters have been on their own, but for all the right reasons. It was only in December that Saturn wrapped up a three year visit to your work sector and with lucky Jupiter returning in November, you need that break. When Juno leaves your career sector on the 1st July this will leave just Eris and Chiron behind. And with Chiron turning retrograde on the 5th July and Eris on the 23rd July, they will take a back seat, focused more on reviewing and revision, with a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. With Uranus retrograding back into your career sector in November, just as Jupiter returns to your work sector, things are set to become a lot busier in the final two months of the year and will then stay that way through to the end of 2019. Because Uranus had been in your career sector since 2010 and Saturn had been in your work sector since 2014, you're more in need of a chance for things to settle than you realise. Time spent in the slow lane professionally is just what you need. Yet while things are slowing down professionally, they are doing the very opposite on the income front. Both July and August and into the early weeks of September are destined to be the most lucrative weeks of 2018. With so much having already been invested professionally, it's time to reap the benefits.
There are some stunning developments across the income, work and career fronts this month, all the more stunning because of the different things that fall into place at the same time. Take any one feature away and this would see the dynamics deflate, with the money and professional gods working together to create a situation where the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts. On its own, having Saturn and Pluto in your work sector is not a game changer. Pluto has been here since 2008, Saturn since last December and both have been in retrograde motion since April. If anything, having to juggle the pressure from the Sun as you wind down your old solar year, things have been more challenging. Yet this was more about knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. While last month's work tension and job pressure is dialling back, Saturn and Pluto are offering nothing on the job front that they haven't offered every other month. At the same time, Uranus has been in your career sector since April, in the early months of a journey that will take until 2026 to unfold. At the same time, Ceres' return to your income sector late last month and Venus' on the 10th July, while earlier in the year than you would normally expect new income opportunities, is not a game changer. Even Juno's return to your career sector on the 1st July doesn't have the power to change anything, other than foster a sense of determination. Yet when you not only add all the forces in play across the income, work and career fronts together, but when they work collectively as they are doing, then this creates a stunning month across all three fronts.
The Sun's departure from your career sector on the 21st June was something that happens at that time every year, taking the solar spotlight off your career and professional situation, matters and options. And as is often the case, with Venus and Mercury having already been and gone, this has brought all planetary activity on the career front to a close for the year. However, what this will do is bring all planetary activity in both your professional houses to a close, something that has not happened. The Sun moves through your work sector in January/February each year and as Venus and Mercury follow close, it is the early months of any year that are the busiest and most active of any year on the job front. Often, you will reach the end of February and all planetary activity on the job front is over for the year. So by the time the Sun leaves your career sector in June, all planetary activity on the job and career fronts is usually over for the year. That is not the case this year, with Mars not only in your work sector, but in his first full month in retrograde motion. The last time you moved into July with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos in your work sector was in 1971, which was also the last time he retrograded here. Mars should have left late last month, but instead turned retrograde and has begun retracing his steps. Mars in retrograde motion is very different to Mars in direct motion, with a need to pull back, pace yourself and slowly retrace your steps. Fortunately, you start the month with the Moon in your work sector and not leaving until the 3rd July allows you to get an early feel for how to play things. You will have a much better read on things when the Moon comes full circle, from the 27th July to the 30th July.
That the focus is on your career sector at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of July in your career sector. With the solar spotlight always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year, this makes this something very ordinary and familiar. Yet chances are, what you're experiencing is anything but. For while the solar spotlight might fall on your career situation and matters at this time of year, what this reveals will change from year to year. This year you have a mix of support and pressure and in the right quota this can create the potential for a breakthrough. The pressure is coming from Saturn and Pluto in your home and family sector, where they are policing a need for work/life balance. With Pluto there since 2008 this is something you have become used to, but with Saturn there for the first time in three decades, this is not something you can ignore or dodge. Yet being forced to make work/life balance a priority works to your advantage, especially with the support you have on the income and job fronts. With Neptune in your work sector since 2012, just as a need for work/life balance has been your reality over the last eight years, support from Neptune on the job front has been your reality for the last six years. The difference this year is that with Chiron, planet of healing gone you don't have to confront old ghosts. What you don't usually have is Jupiter in your income sector. It is Jupiter's direct turn on the 11th July that will see the tide turn on the income front, just two days before a solar eclipse on the career front on the 13th July could ignite things across the income, work and career fronts.
At some point, it is a given that the focus will shift to your career situation and matters in July, with the Sun's return to your career sector on the 23rd July something that happens at this time every year. This is when, regardless of anything else that might or might not be happening, the solar spotlight shifts onto your career and professional situation, matters and options. The difference this year is that there has been continuous planetary activity in your career sector since mid 2017. When the last of the faster moving planets left last September, both the North Node and Ceres stayed on. They were both still here when Venus returned last month and while Ceres left on the 28th June, with Venus here until the 10th July and Mercury having returned on the 29th June, there are still many hands on the wheel. This allows you to start the month with heart and head in the game and with the North Node's clear sense of professional direction. Until the North Node leaves the eclipses will continue, with everything leading up to a solar eclipse here next month. Yet while Venus will leave on the 10th July Mercury, who normally moves through in two weeks, will stay on. It is Mercury's retrograde turn in your career sector on the 26th July, just three days after the Sun's return that turns what is normally a 14 to 15 day visit into a visit that won't run its course until early September. This will keep the planetary activity going until then, but as the month progresses the dynamics will shift. Until leaving on the 10th July, Venus is focused on fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. It is once Venus leaves that it becomes more about having your head in the game, with the Sun shining the solar spotlight on everything.
When Uranus returned to your work sector in April, this turned a very ordinary area of your chart into something extraordinary. When the Sun left a few days later, this should have brought all planetary activity on the job front to a close for the year but instead, this began a new journey towards job growth and the quest for your personal truth, that won't run its course until 2026. Juno's return to your work sector on the 1st July will bring another dynamic into play. Uranus is a giant of a planet and Juno, queen of commitment is a minor player. Yet it is Juno's sense of commitment and determination that will add another string to your bow and the timing couldn't be better. For it was in the closing days of June that Ceres, dwarf planet and the queen of nurturing returned to your career sector and with Venus returning on the 10th July, all of a sudden things are starting to move on the career front for the first time this year. With the Sun not returning until later next month and Mercury until early September, this is opening the doors to new career options much earlier in the year than you would normally expect. Juno and Ceres aren't major players, but what makes their return to your work and career sector such a game changer, is that they are able to connect forces in play across the income, work and career fronts in the way that major forces can't. For example, while Uranus is in your work sector until 2026, Saturn is in your income sector until 2020 and Pluto until 2024, they will never connect directly. They are simply too far apart and move too slowly. Yet Juno, Venus and Ceres don't have that problem, able to act as go betweens, uniting forces in play across the income, work and career fronts.
While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses this month, this is what makes this such an important month. This is a transition month, a month where you get to stand back, catch your breath and finish up one chapter before you start the next. It was only on the 21st June that the Sun left your work sector, wrapping up two active months that had seen not only the Sun move through, but Venus and Mercury as well. Because the Sun doesn't return to your career sector until the 23rd September each year, this should give you a three month gap or fire break between the two. Instead, just six weeks and five days separate the Sun's departure from your work sector last month and Venus' return to your career sector on the 7th August. All planetary activity on the job front ended last month and new doors will open on the career front next month, with this month a chance to catch your breath between the two. What makes this even more important, is that while Venus returns to your career sector early next month for what should be a 24 to 25 day visit, she will instead spend the majority of the next four months there. This also makes the Moon's visits a lot more important this month, with its return to your work sector a chance to look back and to your career sector, a chance to look to the future. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 10th July to the 12th July and coming full circle from last month's New Moon, this will be a chance to tie up loose ends. The Moon's return to your career sector from the 18th July to the 20th July is the last before Venus returns. As the Moon fuels your professional instincts and imagination, this will bring a chance to start lining up in front of new doors before they open.
In a year when Jupiter has been in your career sector from the get go and at a time of year when the Sun is always in your work sector, this is all very ordinary. However, in this case, ordinary has to be taken on the context of how extraordinary this is. While Jupiter has been in your career sector since last October and the Sun returns to your work sector at this time every year, this is the first time they have both been here at the same time in 12 years and it will be another 12 years before they meet up here again. To also have Neptune in your income sector is both ordinary and extraordinary. Until leaving your work sector on the 23rd July, the Sun will continue to keep the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters, as he does at this time every year. Yet while this is the norm and having Jupiter in your career sector has been the norm since last October, on both the job and career fronts something extraordinary is happening and it all comes together in one very special three day period, a period that runs from the 11th July to the 13th July. This is a three day period that is the point where everything until now leads up to and everything from then will lead on from. What makes this three day period all comes down to the Sun, Moon and Jupiter. It begins with Jupiter's direct turn in your career sector on the 11th July, something that was always going to turn the tide, release the brakes and turn the lights green. The Moon's return to your work sector on the 12th July was always going to be a chance to capitalise on this, but an alignment with the Sun on the 13th July creates a rare solar eclipse. A solar eclipse on the job front just two days after the tide turns on the career front will energise things across the income, work and career fronts.
That the focus is on your work situation and job matters at this time of year is not unusual. Even though the Sun won't return to your work sector until the 23rd July, something that happens at this time every year, to start the month with Venus and/or Mercury here is not unusual, as they will often return a few weeks before the Sun. What makes this more unusual is that you not only start the month with both here, but there has been continuous planetary activity here since the Sun left last year. It was never a case of planetary activity starting up for the year because it never ended last year. When Venus left your work sector last September she left the North Node and Ceres here and when she came full circle nine months later, they were both still there. Ceres left late last month, waiting for Venus so she could hand over the reins. With the North Node here until November it means we still have eclipses in the works, those wildcards that act as a trigger for things building behind the scenes. By the time the next solar eclipse falls next month, there will be a lot to trigger. Venus will leave on the 10th July, but not before doing what she can to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Mercury, who normally moves through in 14 to 15 days should leave a few days later, but instead is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on the 26th July. This might slow work and job matters down, but only so that you can work on things through to early September, instead of rushing them through in a few weeks. Because so much has been building for over a year now, there is a lot to come to fruition or to a head, turning and/or tipping point over the next few months.
