Scorpio July 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


This is such an important month for you, that July is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in an adventurous part of your chart and that will always boost your spirits and make for an exciting month, July is rarely a game changing month. What makes this such a game changing month is Jupiter, who finally turns direct in Scorpio on the 11th July. This is far more significant than simply shifting your focus from the rear view mirror to the road ahead.

Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion returned to Scorpio last October to spend 13 months laying down the foundations to a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. In direct motion until March, this was a chance to explore as much new potential and get as many options on the table as possible. Since turning retrograde you’ve had a chance to spend time back at the drawing board, sorting through what to run with and what to discard. Due to leave on the 9th November, Jupiter’s direct turn marks the beginning of the end and the start of the push to bring things home.

This is when the handbrake is released and the lights turn green, finally reaching a point in the year where you feel you’re moving forward again. This comes in the backdrop of what is a stunning professional month, with a lot of things coming together on the career front. Yet with Mars not only on the other side of the sky in your home and family sector but in retrograde motion, a need for work/life balance is being policed. And just as well, for there is a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia in the air all month.

Love 2017Scorpio July 2018 Love Horoscope

There is a quiet sense of confidence on both the romantic and relationship fronts this month, not just because of what is happening on both fronts, but the support that both fronts have. As Neptune spends his first full month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector he is surrounded by support. That support is coming from Jupiter, in retrograde motion in Scorpio until the 11th July and the Sun, in an adventurous part of your chart until the 23rd July. As Neptune holds the doors open to the past and second chances, this is fuelling a potent mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia.

At the same time, while Uranus has been in your relationship sector since April and is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month, things take an interesting twist in the early hours of the month. For on the 1st July Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships, returns to your relationship sector, for the first time in four years. With Uranus making his first visit to your relationship sector in eight decades, this is the first time they have come together here since 1940. Uranus is spontaneous, while Juno is all about commitment, with the two able to balance each other out.

With Saturn and Pluto not only in your communication sector but in retrograde motion, your relationships have some heavy duty support from the communication gods. This is especially so when it comes to giving the past and unsaid words a voice. It was a Full Moon in your communication sector late last month that created the potential for a communication breakthrough, something you can continue to benefit from. On both the romantic and relationship fronts the journey continues, with communication vital on both fronts.

Money 2017Scorpio July 2018 Money Horoscope

While there is no planetary activity in either of your money houses this week, this works to your advantage. The Sun only left your financial sector on the 21st June, wrapping up your annual financial review and all the planetary activity here for the year. The Sun will always shine the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters at that time of year, but for the first time in four years, there were no roadblocks. This has allowed you to look at money matters realistically, leaving you with the means to quietly take your power back. The Moon will come full circle from last month’s New Moon from the 10th July to the 12th July, with a chance to tie up loose ends.

While there has been no planetary activity in your income sector since Mars left in March, this did not wrap up all the planetary activity for the year. Not only does the Sun return to your income sector each November, you have lucky Jupiter returning on the 9th November, for the first time in 12 years. With your most potentially lucrative year for income growth and opportunities in over a decade now just four weeks away, this makes everything that is happening professionally a lot more significant.

This is why moving into the month with Venus, planet of money in your career sector is such an advantage. Until she leaves on the 10th July, Venus is always focused on fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. That is without lucky Jupiter being less than four weeks away. This also makes the Moon’s return to your income sector from the 22nd July to the 25th July a lot more important. Any chance to sharpen your nose for money and point you in a lucrative direction is preparation for Jupiter’s return later in the year.

Career 2017Scorpio July 2018 Career Horoscope

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.
