Aquarius July 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


As much as you have reached a game changing month across the income, work and career fronts, you won’t get away with pushing yourself, but then, fortunately, you don’t need to. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your work sector, but with Jupiter in your career sector and Neptune in your income sector, the support is stunning. To start with it is more the potential of something brewing and if anything, you may be put off by work tension and job pressure that came to a head late last month.

It was in the closing days of last month that the Sun not only came under pressure from a Full Moon, but from Saturn as well. A Full Moon is something that the Sun will always encounter during its month long visit to your work sector, at this time every year. However, the last time Saturn moved into opposition was three decades ago. With both in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, this is also a reminder to the Sun to slow down and pace yourself. This is all about knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.

Yet with the message delivered the timing couldn’t be better. For as you wait for Jupiter’s direct turn in your career sector on the 11th July and a solar eclipse in your work sector on the 13th July, there really is a need to pull back. In addition with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos not only in Aquarius but in his first full month in retrograde motion, even if you tried to push yourself, either personally or professionally you would struggle to. In hindsight, the work tension and job pressure late last month and not to subtle call to slow down, couldn’t have come with better timing.

Love 2017Aquarius July 2018 Love Horoscope

At some point, the focus will always shift to your relationships this month, with the Sun’s return to your relationship sector on the 23rd July something that happens at this time every year. Yet you start the month with Venus and Mercury already here, with Venus having already spent weeks creating her magic, with Mercury still in the early days of a new communication push. Venus will leave on the 10th July, but not before leaving you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships.

Mercury, planet of communication only returned on the 29th June, but normally here for just 14 to 15 days, there should be a lot more urgency. Instead, Mercury is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on the 26th July, which will keep him here until early September. The Sun won’t return until the 23rd July, but Mercury will remain here throughout his month long visit, spending much of it in retrograde motion, able to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.  Mercury will be in retrograde motion when next month’s solar eclipse brings an opportunity for major new beginnings.

This year all the planets moving through your relationship sector have an unexpected challenge, with Mars on the other side of the sky in Aquarius and in opposition. Mars is policing a need for balance between your personal and relationship needs, something that might come to a head during a total lunar eclipse on the 28th July. Maybe that is why Mercury, planet of communication is staying on, with his retrograde turn two days before this lunar eclipse ensuring he’s on hand to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. This creates the potential for a breakthrough.

Money 2017Aquarius July 2018 Money Horoscope

The stars dial up a stunning month on both the income and financial fronts, with a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary, as well as the familiar and the unfamiliar. What adds to the potency is that both sides of the fence have planets surrounded by a massive amount of support. What is the norm or at least has been since his return to your income sector in 2012, is to not only have Neptune here, but in retrograde motion. What makes this extraordinary is that for the first time since returning six years ago Chiron, planet of healing is gone and there is no need to confront old ghosts.

This year, as Neptune spends his first full month in retrograde motion in your income sector, it is all about revisiting old dreams and making the most of the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential. With Jupiter turning direct in your career sector on the 11th July and the Sun in your work sector until the 23rd July, there is a huge amount of support between income, work and career forces. And these are no lightweights with the Sun, Jupiter and Neptune some of the most powerful forces in the solar system.

The planetary activity in your financial sector this month doesn’t carry that weight, but it is both extraordinary and unfamiliar and is surrounded by its own support system. With the Sun not returning to your financial sector until the 23rd August, just having planetary activity on the financial front from the get go is extraordinary for July. You start the month with Ceres here, but she is joined by Venus on the 10th July. This is your first chance all year to look at money matters, but in a way that is more a chance to update your financial expectations, with every reason for confidence.

Career 2017Aquarius July 2018 Career Horoscope

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.
