July 2023 Love Tips

The month of July reminds us of ourselves as well as others. The elements of Water and Fire create emotional and passionate interactions with others that can be stressful. It is essential to pace yourself and focus on personal needs and projects. July is about practicing self-care and taking the time to do things that matter to you for a change rather than leave yourself last. Remember, you can only be there for yourself if you are exhausted.

July 2023 Monthly Astrological Forecast

The energy of the Sun in Cancer (June 21 - July 22) is all about emotional awareness, empathy, and connecting to others, especially family or those who live with us. We tend to become super alert and sensitive during this period, making us ultra-vulnerable compared to other periods. However, through our vulnerability, we learn things about ourselves and our relationships that will allow us to grow. Whether connected to others, we gain much-needed insight and awareness during this period. It is an excellent time to meditate, take some time to rest, and revive your energy, since tapping empathetically to others will make you feel emotionally exhausted.

Sun in Leo (July 23 – August 22) is a perfect cycle for allowing yourself to take an emotional break and focus on and enjoying things you tend to avoid when. During Sun in Leo, take time to enjoy the little things, whether it is taking time to be alone and replenish yourself or simply have lunch with friends or loved ones. It is also a significant time to travel and treat yourself, so get a massage or something you need. Sun in Leo reminds us that self-care is essential, especially if you want to be there for others. It is time to have fun and focus on yourself. Sun in Leo is about living life entirely and making no apologies for it.

Love Aspects as Influenced by the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Sun Signs Transits

Full Buck Moon in Capricorn - July 3, 2023

The sign of Capricorn is typically driven, purposeful, and thrives under pressure. When the Moon is full and situated in Capricorn, there is a sense of stability and fulfillment in all areas, from career to relationships. The Full Moon provides us with the clarity and confidence needed to accomplish almost anything; it is a great time to meditate on specific goals we are trying to achieve.

Moon Ritual:  Get a black stone and a green candle. Meditate on a specific goal you wish to achieve for this month.

Mercury in Cancer - June 27, 2023 - July 10, 2023

Communication patterns are much more emotionally charged when Mercury is in Cancer. We may feel more sensitive and read into things more than we should. The main reason we are much more sensitive during Mercury in Cancer is that we become more empathic and in tune with the emotional states of others, making us a lot more vulnerable than usual. During extreme vulnerability, we may find ourselves personalizing things a bit more, yet at the same time, we can be more compassionate and understanding. We find ourselves relating more when we engage in deep conversations. In many ways, Mercury in Cancer helps us gain better insight and understanding of others, especially our romantic partners.

Mercury in Leo - July 11, 2023 – July 28, 2023

Communication is quite expressive and straight from the heart, yet not as emotionally charged as in Cancer. There is confidence and assertiveness under the aspect of Mercury in Leo, which allows even shy individuals to find the courage to share their thoughts without second-guessing themselves. The advantage of Mercury in Leo is that you share your feelings with more clarity and less fear, even if you feel unsure. In terms of romantic feelings, the aspects of Mercury in Leo allow you to express your romantic feelings with ease, even if nothing concrete develops.

Venus in Leo – June 5, 2023 – July 22, 2023 (Direct)

Venus in Leo is charming and daring to take a risk regarding love. It has no qualms about allowing others to feel desired and wanted. During this period, you may feel a strong desire to be more social and engaging with others, allowing you to meet new people and visit new places. It is a great time to enjoy the little things and treat yourself well, especially before Venus goes retrograde starting July 23 (see below.). During the Direct cycle of Venus in Leo, take advantage of the cycle and do your shopping, remodeling, or adding your finishing touches to any project before the retrograde. And speaking of that…

Venus in Leo July 24, 2023 - September 4, 2023 (Retrograde)

All planets have a Retrograde period; however, this cycle's duration varies. Venus will be in retrograde for 43 days, beginning July 24, 2023, and going direct on September 4, 2023. Typically, during a retrograde, we tend to reassess or revisit patterns and elements ruled by the planets in retrograde stations.

In the case of Venus retrograde, it is not the ideal time for starting new relationships or getting married. It is also not a perfect period to begin any beauty regimen or diet or spend money on plastic surgery or major augmentation procedures. Nor is it an excellent time to make significant wardrobe changes, home renovation, or anything that deals with beautification. In general, avoid starting new projects or self-improvement regimens unless you don't mind redoing what you started. It's okay to do maintenance work on preexisting projects or stick to what was established before the Retrograde, so don't use the Retrograde as an excuse to stop working out or sticking to your diet.

During the 43 days of Venus retrograde in Leo, you will want to invest in new items, mainly because you feel dissatisfied with the status of everyday things. You may want to change things, whether its beauty related, relationship status, or the interior of your home. The urge to change comes from feeling disconnected, dissatisfied, and bored with how things "look" or "feel." It is wise to wait until the retrograde passes since what you may be experiencing is transitory, and you may find yourself changing your views once the Retrograde is over. Waiting until Venus goes direct in early September can save you tons of money and unnecessary regrets from spending or acting impulsively due to emotional dissatisfaction.

Mars in Leo May 20, 2023 – July 10, 2023

Mars in Leo is quite charming as well as enthusiastic in the area of love and romance. You can expect a period of intensity and over-the-top generosity that can be both exciting and unexpected. You have the urge to be expressive and fearless, diving into situations without thinking or worrying about outcomes. It can also be tricky for your finances since you may spend more than you can afford during this period. Also, you may be quicker to say things without thinking of the consequences, so it is wise to pace yourself to avoid potential problems.

Mars in Virgo July 11, 2023 – August 26, 2023

During Mars in Virgo, you become more analytical and less impulsive. Though you may still assert yourself as you did during Mars in Leo, you tend to pause and think a bit more before diving into situations. Mars is mindful and contemplative in Virgo, not forceful nor explosive but steady and calculating when it comes to action. You may become a tad more methodical and prone to wait longer to say or do things. You spend more time conserving your energy and time for things that matter rather than jumping into situations abruptly. Your passions are slower than Fire signs but steady and enduring.
