Astro-Tarot Forecast for July 2020



1 Aries - 21 Mar to 19 Apr Knight of Pentacles

Work


From the flowing and freewheeling Knight of Cups to the steady and slow moving Knight of Pentacles, June may have left Aries still reeling this month. The effects of Mercury’s retrograde lingers on a bit into July, leaving most of you still feeling exhausted and overworked. Now may be the best time to use up your vacation days and take a break. Aries who choose to keep working will have to work hard to preserve the status quo that is slowly returning to the office. Focus on tying up loose ends instead of starting any new projects or proposing new ideas. Now is the time where you have to focus on cleaning up the leftover obstacles that burdened you last month. It may be a slow process, but it will be worth it to have a clean and fresh start over.


Romance

Mercury directs on the 12th, while things calm down a little bit from it’s retrograding phase, Aries will likely still experience some conflict and misunderstanding when it comes to their relationships. Actively working Aries may find it hard to find time to spend with their loved ones. Aries, who are family orientated, may find themselves facing critique from outside sources or relatives whom threaten to come between you and your family members. While this isn’t as volatile as a period as last month, it can still be stressful. Aries should strive to be more diplomatic and organized in order to smooth over these conflicts, like the Knight of Pentacles

Health

Aries may be experiencing a bit of a crash from last month’s fiery energy boost. Things are starting to slow down a little bit, but Aries may be resistant to this change. As your own energy lowers, you may feel yourself becoming sluggish, or even lazy. In truth, you are only just adjusting to the status quo of thing, that is why you will feel more drained and tired than usual. Understand that your body needs this down time and you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself for winding down. Listen to the advice of the Knight of Pentacles, take plenty of breaks and loosen your high expectations of yourself. This is the time to rest.

Finances

This month is a little bit easier on Aries when it comes to their wealth and finances. As things slow down and start to get back to normal, your wealth begins to do the same. Those who made budget cuts or had to resort to more resourceful methods for financing their household will be able to breathe a sigh of relief. Bonuses or extra income may come in to help stabilize any losses that you may have accrued last month. Do not be too reckless with your fortunes, understand that these blessings are helping you to get back where you were, so do not be too hasty to spend big. Focus on building your foundation again.

2 Taurus - 20 Apr to 20 May Seven of Pentacles

Work

July is a month of tough decisions for most Taurians. The Seven of Pentacles signals that Taurians must be careful and research thoroughly before they make any choices in their professional career. While Mercury’s retrograde is ending, its affects may still linger for a while. So, proceed cautiously in your career. Avoid being hasty when presented with obstacles and do not be too excitable when it comes to starting new projects. There is a lot of tape that you will likely have to navigate through, and you should make sure that any proposals you write are airtight or else they will be easily picked apart. Be thorough in your research and pay attention to the details.

Romance

Taurians don’t have the easiest time when it comes to their relationships this month. Though you may want to focus more on your relationships and social life, you may find that it is not the most harmonious of times. People seem more prone to arguments, and it feels as if they are purposefully picking fights just to anger you. Be careful about being swept up in the rumor mill, people may not mean what they say. As Mercury directs on the 12th, misunderstandings are likely this month due to blockages in communication. Avoid taking sides, instead remain as neutral as possible and stay out of the drama. Strive to make it to the end of the month without implicating yourself.

Health

The lingering effects of Mercury’s retrograde can mess with the minds of many a sign. For Taurians, you may find yourself losing focus more easily. It can be difficult to concentrate, making you more careless and even reckless when it comes to your health and wellbeing. This is why you should avoid drama and also avoid stressing yourself out more by taking on new projects or busywork. Instead, spend this time just relaxing your mind. Focus on what needs to be done now or else your physical health may also suffer. Get plenty of rest, do not be afraid to just take an evening away from everyone for a while. Avoid travelling overseas.

Finances

Taurians get a break when it comes to their finances. As Mercury’s retrograde eases itself and departs, it’s stranglehold on Taurian’s income and expenses will also relax. However, as thing get back to normal, ensure you do not let yourself get in over your head. It can be tempting to jump on a deal or opportunity, but you must act like the Seven of Pentacles and take your time to carefully research and look into any offers you get. Learn to be weary of offers that sound too good to be true. People may seek to take advantage of you, so keep your cards close to your chest. At the end of the day though, you do not need to worry too much about your finances.

3 Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun Two of Swords

Work

The Two of Swords seems to indicate that Gemini may feel as if they are out of their depth this month. Mercury will continue to retrograde until it directs on the 12th, during this period you may feel as if you are missing key details or not being in control enough over your career path. Take caution during this time, it is better to focus on what is already on your plate than starting anything new. It is advisable that you get someone to help you review or edit your work to help you catch out any careless mistakes or loopholes. It is preferable if you can focus on long term projects that will help to further your career in the long run.

Romance

Geminis feel more tempted to close yourself off from people or socializing this month. The Two of Swords indicates that you are trying to guard yourself from a potential heartbreak. Those who are already in relationships or family orientated may find themselves trying to shy away from necessary or important decisions. The universe is actually encouraging you in your efforts this time. Trust your instinct, you understand that now is not the right time to be hasty in making decisions. Try to delay things until the second half of this month when the environment is much calmer. Trust your instincts and listen to your better judgement. Being patient will make all the difference.

Health

Gemini are still recovering from last month’s retrograde, therefore you should be more careful when it comes to your health and wellbeing. The lessons that last month tried to impart about knowing your limits and taking proper breaks is even more important this month. To add something new, consider scheduling a doctor’s checkup this month just so you can ensure that you are in good health. Those suffering from chronic illnesses like muscle aches or headaches should ensure you always have medication on hand to help relieve symptoms. Keep warm during this month and avoid going out during cold or rainy days as this can aggravate pains.

Finances

Money is an area that you have to watch out for this month. The stability of previous months may have made you content, but you must understand that money comes and goes easily. Therefore, always ensure you have enough left over for a rainy day. Learn to be thrifty and patient, especially when it comes to your expenses. Tighten the grip on your wallet, no matter how tempted you are to spend to easily fix a problem that can be solved with a bit more time and labor. Keep away from these temptations and budget your finances accordingly. Be prepared to lose a little this month, but strive to come out ready to make your fortunes by the end of it.

4 Cancer - 21 Jun to 22 Jul V The Hierophant

Work

There is a new moon in Cancerian’s 1st house of self and attitude on the 20th of July. While this does provide Cancerians with new insight into their career needs, before this period, you may face some difficulty and obstacles. The Hierophant advises that you learn to steel yourself and not be hasty in making decisions. You have to keep a cool head and pick your battles carefully. It is a good idea if you have a team of strong partners around you, however, you should consider those locally, as overseas communications may face problems both in terms of time management and misunderstandings. Be patient and move forward cautiously, do not retreat totally in your shell, but keep room for when you need to meditate and think over problems.

Romance

The energy of the Sun from last month still lingers on into the early half of July. There are still a number of obstacles and hoops that you will have to jump through this month when it comes to your relationships and social life. Make sure that you emotionally prepare yourself for what is to come. The Hierophant urges that you remain objective and choose what is the best for both you and your loved ones. It is a time when Cancerians must start to take charge and make the difficult, but ultimately necessary decisions in your personal life. Be cautious about being overly moody and vent your frustrations into healthy outlets instead of letting it out on your loved ones.

Health

Cancerians need to be cautious about their health. While physically, you are starting to regain your strength, the mental strength that this month puts on you will make it feel like you have had your energy drained. Do not let yourself be brought down too much by this issue. Instead, understand that you have to take things slow and easy when it comes to problem solving or your own health. Take a break every now and then, go and do something you love instead of burying yourself deeper in your work. Putting yourself on a loose schedule can be good as you can ensure you are getting the appropriate amount of rest and sleep.

Finances

Cancerians should be cautious when it comes to their finances in July. This is a tight month for your sign and you should not be frivolous in your spending. Cancerians have all the skills and knowledge needed to make bank, however, you must watch the external environment carefully. This is a good time to start planning, but it may not be time for you to actually start investing. You will have to focus on covering your expenses this month as well. Strive to clear your debts and ensure that your expenses do not linger this month.

5 Leo - 23 Jul to 22 Aug Eight of Swords

Work

The Eight of Sword’s energy leads Leos to feel as if they are trapped when it comes to their career and work life. You may feel as if there is no more room for you to grow or that your current line of work is no longer fulfilling. While there are still obstacles that crop up at work for you to solve, they are more mundane and frustrating issues that will cause you stress. Rather than opportunities for you to shine when it comes to problem solving. Understand that this period will eventually pass. You just need to hunker down and work hard on getting through this period. Go with the flow of this period, even the most exciting jobs can have low periods. This is just another in your journey to success.

Romance

The Sun enters Leo’s 1th house of self and attitude late on the 22nd of July. The energy here will be more prevalent in the coming month. However, before this period, Leos may feel that they lack that fire when it comes to their personal lives. You may wonder whether or not your loved ones really care for you or if they are just too busy to spend time with you. Again, understand that this period will also eventually pass. It is yet another normal period in your life. At the same time, do not be afraid to be honest with your feelings to your loved ones. While they may not be able to tear themselves away from work now, it is good that they are aware of your feelings.

Health

Most signs are still recovering from the hectic period of last month, brought on by Mercury’s retrograde. Leos are no different. You will have to take it easy this month. While last month, you may have found yourself spread too thin, this month you must take advantage of the down time to relax yourself. You may be more prone to recklessness or carelessness so be careful. The Eight of Sword advises you to not be too hard on yourself, take some time off if needed. Ensure you keep your diet clean as well as you may be tempted towards energy or high caloric foods in order to boost yourself up. These are only short-term solutions and will do more harm than good in the long run.

Finances

Things are still slowly getting back to normal from last month. However, it is not yet time for you to ease up on your budgets or start spending recklessly again. Your money income may be sporadic this month, it will be difficult to predict. It is unlikely you will find yourself too far under the water. Keep your head up and remain optimistic. You will be able to get through this month. All that saving for a rainy day will start to come in handy this month. Some unexpected opportunities to make extra income may crop up, consider them carefully before you proceed ahead.

6 Virgo - 23 Aug to 22 Sept XVII The Star

Work

Mercury is still retrograding until the 12th of July. It’s lingering energy can leave Virgos feeling frustrated at the delays and communication mismanagement that may crop up at work. It seems like the moment you fix one problem, another immediately crops up demanding your attention. Old problems that you thought you completed may suddenly present new issues that you need to address quickly. Overall, this is a hectic month. The Star advises you to take a moment back to breathe and recognize that this is a busy time. Adjust to your current environment before you set out on any new projects. Attempt to keep all communications written down so that there is less risk of communication issues.

Romance

Unfortunately, the issues of communication that you face at work may bleed over into your social life. Issues regarding the household will be a hot topic this month, be it expenses or household renovations. While they may need to be debated, it is likely the outcome of such debates will result in more argument than compromise. Virgos should take a step back and breathe. Put away the paperwork and ask to just spend some downtime with your loved ones. Take a break and be open and honest with your feelings. While it may not be the most productive time in terms of reaching a result, but it will help alleviate your stress and strengthen your bonds.

Health

The Star card blesses you with good health in July. Despite all the obstacles and issues that you may face this month, your good health continues on from June. However, be weary of your temper, the normally calm and collected Virgo can be prone to outbursts this month. Always take a few steps away from a situation to breathe and process everything. Count to 10 before you say anything in heated situations and consider delaying decisions until you are in a calmer state of mind. Getting worked up over every issue is not good for your health, keeping a stress ball around you can be more useful than you think.

Finances

Finances may only add to Virgo’s stress this month. You will have to prepare yourself. Delays in work can result in delays in income or expenses that you did not initially foresee. This is inevitable and you will have to accept the losses or delays that come your way. Again, do not despair. Remain calm and plan your next move carefully. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and make do with an unfavorable situation. This period will pass and eventually be nothing more than one of the hardships recorded down in your journey to success. The Star card advises you to find time away from worrying about your finances.

7 Libra - 23 Sept to 22 Oct VIII Strength

Work

The Strength card signals that this is a hectic and busy time, however, if you can work hard, you can make the best out of any situation. That doesn’t mean that it will be easy, however. On the contrary, you may find yourself faced with issues with no simple fix. You may be tempted to slap a band aid on an issue and call it a day, but without looking deeper into the core of the matter, it is likely to resurface and bother you again in future. You must learn to hunker down and see things through to the end. The Sun is still in Libra’s 10th house of career, therefore expect some fierce competition this month. If you want to claim your success, you must fight for it.

Romance

The energy of the Strength card spills over into your love life. Libras may think that they can come home from work and relax, but things are just as busy around the house as in the office. Major decisions may take place this month, many of which will require your opinion or judgement. Unfortunately, it feels as if everyone is against each other. Attached Libra s may find that they just cannot see eye to eye with their loved ones or children. This can be extra frustrating as Libras are hoping to spend time with their family. You have to be firm in your stance, do not let yourself waver. Good thought out decisions can make the foundation of your family.

Health

Libras are just raring to go this month. After the previous months of taking it easy, you feel as if you have been given a sudden shot of adrenaline. The universe blesses you with the energy and good health to help tackle the obstacles that you will face this month. Take advantage of this period to tackle any new workouts that you have been itching to try. However, be careful not to overdo it. You have more energy this month, but you also have more on your plate that you have to tackle. Ensure you do not bite off more than you can chew and that you have enough time to recharge when needed.

Finances

Take a bit of a breather, Libra. Your finances are mostly spared from the difficulty and obstacles that plague you this month. This is partially due to good money management and the previous periods of stability that have prepared you for this month. Be grateful for your fortunes and focus on other areas of your life. Your time will be better spent on other areas instead of worrying about your finances. Things will naturally sort themselves out this month. You may even find yourself receiving unexpected bonuses or income from your career or side businesses.

8 Scorpio - 23 Oct to 21 Nov XV The Devil

Work

The Devil empowers the Scorpio with a fire when it comes to your career, however, you must be cautious about how you proceed. A Scorpio’s tongue can be as sharp as their wit and it is easy to say something or make a decision without first considering the consequences. Remember Mercury’s retrograde still continues on into the first half of this month. It’s energy can bring about disagreements and miscommunications at work. This is not a good period to just bulldoze your way through. Instead, you must reign yourself in and proceed with a more diplomatic and detailed touch. You may even have to walk on eggshells for a few weeks around your colleagues and bosses.

Romance

Scorpios feel more ready to step into a relationship this month, you are emboldened by the energy of The Devil. However, July is not a harmonious time for many signs. With the lingering energy of Mercury’s retrograde, conflicts amongst family members are likely. In strongly bonded families, sudden events or issues may crop up that can test your familial bonds. Scorpios who live away from their family may experience more stress this month. Once more, you need to avoid making hasty decisions. It can be tempting to jump to conclusions or make a move the moment you hear some bad news, but you must consider the consequences first. Tackle your issues systematically and with a clear head.

Health

It’s like a fire has been lit under Scorpio’s feet. You feel a rush of energy and adrenaline and your health is in quite high spirits. However, this is a double-edged sword. While you are high on energy, you may trade some of your usual carefulness for recklessness. Scorpios can be unintentionally careless this month, which is why you should be careful, especially when travelling or operating heavy machinery. Slow down a bit when it comes to your health, and do not ignore any injuries. The Devil’s energy may make it tempting to keep working through any aches or pains, but you should address them as soon as possible.

Finances

Things are volatile when it comes to your finances. It can be difficult to predict whether you can reap rewards on your investments or not. This can be a stressful time, but you can help make it less frustrating my planning ahead. Ensure you have a big enough budget for a rainy day and that you are prepared to cut your losses if need be. Scorpios can improve the situation by acting calmly and patiently when things look like they are heading downhill. Trust your knowledge and do your research thoroughly.

9 Sagittarius - 22 Nov to 21 Dec Three of Cups

Work

Easy come, easy go. That is Sagittarius’ motto when it comes to their career in the majority of July. However, you should still strive to safeguard yourself from losing out on opportunities or future projects. Being cautious isn’t usually Sagittarius’ style of work, but holding yourself back and delaying decisions can be very beneficial to you this month. The Three of Cups signals that the workplace is rather harmonious when it comes to you and your colleagues or partners. Unlike other signs, Sagittarians will feel more comfortable working in the presence of others this month. You may be the glue that helps to hold everyone together during this chaotic time with the sun still in Sagittarius’ 8th house of partnership.

Romance

The Three of Cups signals that Sagittarians may be more involved with their family and home affairs in July. And if you aren’t, you should consider dedicating more time to your homelife. Important decisions may be taking place in your household, decisions where you will want to be present for in order to voice your opinion or debate your side. Do not leave these decisions to the side, as it is important you do not delay on them. They may be time sensitive. Furthermore, they may be good opportunities for you to smooth out any issues in your relationships and address problems before they fully arise. It will never be boring at home.

Health

July is a stressful month for many signs. When Sagittarians are stressed, they may find themselves turning to all sort of temptations. When Sagittarians are stressed and low on energy, they are often tempted to eat sugary foods or drink highly caffeinated beverages. All of this can give Sagittarians a temporary boost and help you vent stress, but they are ultimately harmful to you in the long run. This month, you must be extra vigilant when it comes to your health. Instead of using food as a stress reliever, take a break. Walk around your neighborhood and do not go for extreme or risky exercise while you are stressed or high strung. Get the tension out of your body before or else.

Finances

As before, easy come, easy go. This is the same situation when it comes to your wealth and finances. While Sagittarians are one of the most optimistic signs when it comes to bouncing back from financial setbacks, you should still aim to learn from your mistakes. Do not be impulsive or hasty in making any investments. Prepare yourself for this month by saving up a budget for a rainy day. Be weary of additional expenses this month, they may surprise you. Unfortunately, they are unavoidable, so ensure that you have enough saved up to ensure you stay afloat for this month.

10 Capricorn - 22 Dec to 19 Jan 0 The Fool

Work

July is another tricky month for Capricorn. The Fool card’s energy makes you feel as you are starting everything back from square one. It feels like you have to earn the respect of your business partners or bosses all from scratch. However, that does not mean you should give up easily. While it may look like everything is against you now, rest assured that as long as you keep doing your best, you will eventually come out on top. Be weary as Mercury’s retrograde continues till the 12th, strive to keep communication lines open and clear during this period to avoid misunderstandings. Getting expectations written out in a legal contract can be the most helpful.

Romance

This is a turbulent time when it comes to your social and personal lives. Mercury’s retrograde can introduce new conflicts or issues in your relationships. Matters of finances or work will often crop up between you and your partner. It is unlikely you will reach a compromise for these arguments by the end of the month. It may help if you delay these decisions until later. Try to play the peacekeeping role in conflicts. Be firm and stand your ground, but do not let the tension or energy grow. Attempt to keep things peaceful and do not adopt an aggressive chance. Be open to compromises and constructive debate or critique.

Health

Capricorns must be extra vigilant when it comes to their health. As with last month, you are not yet at your full energy. Therefore, you should carry on with the good habits that acquired last month. Get plenty of rest and avoid undue stress. The Fool advises that you do not spend too long sitting or not moving from one spot, you must remember to get up and stretch every now and again. Fresh air is important and you should neglect mental or emotional heal any less than physical health. Ensure you get at least 8 hours of sleep, and that you take regular breaks when warranted.

Finances

Capricorns always strive for greatness when it comes to their finances. However, this month, you should rejoice in the stability that comes your way. Many other signs will be envious of the fact that you have nothing exciting going on for you when it comes to your income. Things are relatively predictable for you with no major gains, but no major losses in your future as well. Be grateful for this predictability. This is in part due to how thrifty and money savvy Capricorns are. Things will eventually pick up for you. Just enjoy this period in the meanwhile.

11 Aquarius - 20 Jan to 18 Feb XIV Temperance

Work

Mercury retrogrades until the 12th of this month. During this period, things promise to be relatively busy and chaotic. There is a lot on your plate for this month and it can be hard to find a moment’s rest. The Temperance card advises that you learn to balance your work life with your personal life. Do not bite off more than you can chew. If you think you can squeeze in one more project into your busy time schedule, then you likely cannot in reality. Focus on what is already in front of you and work on doing your best with that. Like many other signs, ensure that you keep communication lines open this month to avoid additional conflicts.

Romance

The busy Aquarius may find their time torn between work and home. It seems that both areas require your immediate attention and you have to run back and forth to fulfil the needs of both your boss and loved ones. Single Aquarians may find that the scene is quite dry when it comes to dating. Either you’re too busy to worry about it or everyone else is too busy to get back to you. This period will eventually pass though. The Temperance card advises you to focus on yourself this month. Look inward and focus on improving your own skills, knowledge or furthering your hobbies. This can be a good time for self-improvement.

Health

Health is a bit of a mixed bag for Aquarians. You likely are gifted with the energy to help you get through this month, however, you are feeling drained at the end of it all. There is a high chance that you also fall ill this month if you are not careful. Look after your diet and exercise regularly. It may be a good idea to schedule a doctor’s visit during this time, if you are feeling under the weather already. Prevention is key, but if that fails, then you should act as quickly as possible to seek medication for your symptoms.

Finances

Things start to calm down a little from last month. While you are not quite out of the woods and in the clear yet Aquarius, you can start to ease up your control over your finances a little. Things are working towards a more stable flow. You may still experience some losses from this month’s hectic environment, but you will have a much easier time predicting and making decisions regarding financial projects and investments than other zodiac signs thanks to the calming energy of the Temperance card. Thank the stars for this blessing.

12 Pisces - 19 Feb to 20 Mar XIX The Sun

Work

The Sun card seems to indicate that Pisces have high expectations of themselves when it comes to work this month. While there will be opportunities for you to shine this month, you should not subject yourself too strictly to these expectations. Mercury retrogrades till the 12th of this month, during this period Pisces may experience a lot of delays and miscommunications at work. Combine optimism with practicality. Keep your chin up, but understand that this period is not the time for you to go all out. Bide your time until an opportunity comes your way. Patience and an observant eye are the keys to your success.

Romance

For the most part, Mercury’s retrograde affects every sign in largely the same way when it comes to their relationships and personal lives. Pisces may face hardships in trying to reach a compromise with their partners or families when it comes to important issues or topics. It feels like there is no way you can win even if you get your way. And there is some truth to this statement. That’s why you should consider delaying any major decisions until the second half of the month, when everyone’s heads will be much clearer and people will be more willing to compromise and give you some leeway.

Health

The Sun card blesses you with a high energy level this month. You feel ready to tackle any obstacle, be it health related or not. However, while your physical health is accounted for, Pisces should take care to watch out for their mental health. You may experience a lot of stress this month, so you must ensure that you take proper breaks and do not neglect your hobbies or interests. If possible, take regular time away from your work in order to have some fun. Bringing others with you can not only revitalize your own mental health, but theirs as well.

Finances

Pisces are usually generous souls, willing to help out charitable causes and those who seek their aid. However, this month, you will have to learn to be stern about lending out money to others. You need to put yourself and your family first. Budgeting is a valuable skill that you must strive to uphold and teach those around you to do the same. It can be easy not to think too much about individual losses, but these will pile up. Be cautious about investing. It is better to delay any financial decisions until the latter half of the month or until the end of July if possible.
