Welcome to Cancer season! In the Northern Hemisphere, we’ve officially reached the brightest time of the year, when the days are longest and the sun is warm. This is a season to consider how we take care of others and ourselves. Sometimes we might struggle to find a balance between the support we want to give, and our own personal needs, so this is an important time to reflect on that balance. We cannot show up for our loved ones and community if we aren’t stable in ourselves, but we also cannot dwell there too long without reaching out. Perhaps productivity is best applied when it’s through the lens of care.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Finally, you will feel some relief this month. All that vague, restless energy is ready to be put into action, you just had to wait for clarity. You are going through some important personal changes that might affect your sense of home, but they’re certainly welcome changes.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
You’ve made significant progress getting a handle on your resources and your sense of self-worth. But the final stage of this process is the most important part—take stock of how you were able to make these changes, and remember in the future you have more agency than you often think.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
The last two months have allowed you to find a new kind of personal strength in your identity. And inner change always inspires outer change, so July is a good time to consider how you can strengthen your resources as well (though I know most Geminis don’t love sticking to a budget).
Cancer June 21 – July 22
Deep dreaming is still on order for you, Cancer. There’s nostalgia in having the very things you desire, because you know nothing is permanent. Embrace the idea that you are always changing and growing, because as you do, you’ll find a better balance of your inner experience with your worldly commitments.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Sometimes in stillness and quiet, we become more creative about the path we are walking. I know you often fear the unknown Leo, but depth and growth can only take place when you pause and allow a new direction for yourself to emerge.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Every few months you begin a review process that helps you find clarity and confidence in your next few steps. July is one of those months, and it’s a good time to consider how you can make a more impactful contribution to the world around you. What action can you take to create more belonging for yourself and those around you?
Libra September 23 – October 22
The last few months have brought a new sense of meaning to your life, Libra, but that might also mean you are more awake to the injustices of the world. With a heart as big as yours, it’s time to take greater action against that injustice. Nothing will give you meaning and purpose more than that.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
You are pushing hard to accomplish meaningful work right now, Scorpio, and in a way that’s part of who you are. But don’t allow the thrill of your drive to overwhelm your wellbeing. Take time to read, think, dream, and wonder this month, and you will find it only adds to your passion.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
July continues a deep process you were in during the winter of rebuilding from the inside out. Embrace it, because there are tremendous changes happening that will serve you in the long run. Consider how your blind spots might be affecting the way other people respond to you.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
For the last two and a half years, you’ve been through a rigorous process of owning your challenges and building a new foundation in your life. This process is nearly complete, but July is like a final ‘review’ for you. If there’s anything that doesn’t match this new stability you’ve created, now is the time to let it go.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Sometimes Aquarians believe that what they feel is a distraction from what they are doing. This couldn’t be further from the truth right now. You are acutely aware of the many ways people suffer, and your emotional response is a call to be part of a different future. Let that feeling be your guide.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Every Pisces must learn at some point to tolerate their own sensitivity, otherwise, it is tempting to drown it out in the many ways we distract ourselves. You may find right now that leaning into the depths of your feeling right now is not as tiring as the dance of avoiding it. Call your friends, you are not alone, and need not feel that way.
