Whether or not you believe in the stars, horoscopes or astrology, monthly forecasts usually resonate in some way. Our regular star-sign forecasts by Sharan (tarotbysharan.com) are actually based on tarot, so they’re a little bit different. We’ve been a fan of Sharan for years, so, if you’re in need of a little guidance, she might just be the card for you!
Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
It’s a month where you discover what you stand for and what your beliefs are. You may have known this before but the “noise” in your surroundings may have buried your “voice”. For some time now, you have felt part of the herd, following but unsure why you were doing what you were doing. You emerge now, spreading your wings and ready to move forward to plant your own seeds of thought and see your journey ahead unfold with your own dreams and aspirations.
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
You embark on a journey to be true to yourself this July. It’s taken you a while to build the confidence to reach this stage in your life. But it’s time to put an end to engaging in activities or accepting work that isn’t in line with what fits your beliefs or that you feel most comfortable and at home with. It takes courage to decline work at first. With practice, though, you’ll gain confidence and find yourself attracting like-minded people or work. It certainly is a new beginning and you have come full circle focusing on what you do best and what you’re most passionate about.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
It’s a good month to hit pause and take time to reflect on your actions and working partnerships. As we’re starting the month while being in Mercury Retrograde, it may be wise to review all communication. This may concern your existing business partnerships or new ones that you’re considering working with. You may be all fired up and ready for action but take time to think through your strategies to avoid getting stuck in a situation that could have been stopped right at the start.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
It’s a month where you achieve a breakthrough of clarity of mind and perspective. Plans for the future are crystal clear. All there is left to do is to follow the plan meticulously. The path ahead provides a moment of self-realisation as well. It’s a path where you discover what brings you joy and how to express that inner joy in what you do. This may apply to a new-found calling in life or converting your passion into a business.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
You finally see the end of a stressful time this July. You’ve taken on more than you could manage and haven’t seen any improvements in your situation, or you don’t seem to find yourself anywhere near your end goal. Your efforts may have gone unnoticed despite the hours of blood, sweat and tears you’ve put in. It’s time to apply a fresh perspective to what you’re doing to get to where you want to get to – or perhaps shift the goalposts altogether. It doesn’t mean you are cheating or finding an easy way out, but rather you’re finding a better fit for yourself that allows you to shine.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
It’s an emotional July for Sagittarius, where the month kicks off with disappointing news. Rather than taking the experience negatively, it may help to address it as a humbling experience. You may have been successful before but you’re being shown a different perspective now. It’s something you’ll get used to and take as an opportunity for a transition in your journey. Once you bring yourself to embrace this new experience, you may find yourself on the receiving end of pleasantly surprising news by the end of the month.
Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
Hard work lies ahead this July. But the good news is, it’s not going to be without good prospects at the end of it. You may be delivered a financial opportunity that presents itself as a new beginning. It really is the kind of news you’ve been hoping for quite some time. However, in order to make a success of the opportunity, you can expect yourself to be feeling overwhelmed and snowed under. So, reach out if things get too much, as taking on more than you can manage will only wear you thin and leave you delivering a product or service that’s mediocre.
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
A recent financial setback has left you feeling vulnerable, isolated and low. Unfortunately, most of us associate our financial wealth with our self-worth. This takes some time getting over and when you discover the perfect work collaboration, these difficult times are soon forgotten. You’re on your way from moving away from an unhappy past and working towards making your wishes come true.
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
You may feel like you’re on shaky ground this month. Your usually sturdy decision making and creativity when navigating complicated situations becomes indecisive and unsure. It’s not something you should take personally. These things do occur. Seeking help to gain a fresh perspective on a situation can do no harm. In fact, it may just be what you need to get things revived again.
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
There may be sacrifices that need to be made in pursuit of new financial opportunities this month. It’s a month of transition and letting go of things, people or circumstances that don’t fit your future goals anymore. You’re looking at catering towards the long-term future not just your immediate needs. Your desire to get there is very strong and you aren’t going to sit around waiting for your luck to change. Instead, you’ll be rewriting your story this July rather than accepting what comes your way.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
A teacher in the form of a fire sign comes around this month – someone who opens your eyes to possibilities. You certainly get on with this person like a house on fire. In some ways, it feels like a kindred spirit connection. You may be nudged into changing your approach rather than coerced. You relish the grace and elegance of the ways of your teacher and aspire to be like them. It’s going to be an eye-opening July, when you realise how stuck you’ve become in your old ways as you embrace a new way of living.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
No matter how tough things get, you aren’t quite ready to back down. And neither should you as the end is really quite close this month. You achieve closure on what you’ve been working on for some time. Your boldness, courage and determination coupled with your steadfastness and meticulousness pay off this July. You may find yourself closing your first big deal if you’re self-employed or perhaps find yourself getting a pay rise or a promotion because of all the hard work that you’ve been putting in. Kudos to you, Gemini!
