Monthly Career Horoscopes - July 2019
For the most part, things settle down on the professional front this month, as both Saturn and Pluto recover from oppositions with Mars and Pluto in the second half of June. With both Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion in your career sector, this was both a chance to address any work/life balance issues and also confront the past. This is Saturn's last full retrograde phase in your career sector for another three decades, as he will begin to wrap up his three year visit next year. In retrograde motion, this is a chance to confront the past and also resolve old issues, ahead of lucky Jupiter's return in December. However, while the Sun and Venus will both move into opposition with Saturn and Pluto this month, this won't create the kind of professional pressure or work/life balance tension that last month's oppositions did. This is partly because they aren't as ferocious as Mars and not as ready for a fight. This will be more a chance to take an objective approach to keeping things moving professionally, at a time of year when the focus is more on your home and family life and matters. With Saturn and Pluto both in retrograde motion, this is a point in your professional year when it is more about regrouping and looking back through the rear view mirror. Things could become a lot more active when the Moon moves through your career sector from 15th July to 17th July. The Moon returns every four weeks, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and with it a chance to check in. What makes this visit different is the lunar eclipse this will create on 17th July, with the potential to bring things to a head, turning and/or tipping point. There is a lot of focus on completion this month, finishing up projects or clearing a path for the new growth that Jupiter will bring. This lunar eclipse is a chance to fast track that process. With busy new developments on the job front from mid August, work/life balance should be an aim but not a challenge this month.
This is not a traditionally active point in any professional year and that remains the case. However, there is enough bubbling beneath the surface to ensure that the month gets off a to a good start across the income, work and career fronts and just enough support to keep the momentum going. The month begins with Venus in her final days in your income sector and about to bring months of planetary activity to a close. By the time Venus left your career sector in March, there was already activity on the income front, with that activity coming to an end when she leaves on 2nd July. This has created a bond between income and professional forces over the last four months. As Venus was the last planet to leave your career sector and she is now the last planet to leave your income sector, the same planet responsible for giving this professional year a sense of direction is now responsible for steering the rest of this professional year in a lucrative direction. At the same time, whether it was while Venus and a parade of planets were moving through your income or career sectors, there has been a silent watcher, observing it all. The asteroid Pallas Athena, the goddess of wisdom not only returned to your work sector in November but while Mars was still wrapping up the second of his epic visits to your career sector last year. Pallas will normally spend two months here but instead, a retrograde phase kept her here throughout an extreme amount of planetary activity on the career and income fronts, all the while compiling information and wisdom as she worked to keep work and job matters on track. This is Pallas' last full month before finally leaving and she will be making it her mission to bring everything together across the income, work and career fronts. However, not in a large and dramatic way and instead in a way that should see things slowly fall into place.
This professional year has hit a slow patch but for all the right reasons. When you have an outer planet in your career sector this means that things are literally active for years. While Neptune returned in 2012 and won't leave until 2026, the reality is that there has been continuous planetary activity in your career sector since 2003. That is a long time to remain in the fast lane all year and the reality is you can't. Since returning seven years ago Neptune has spent from June to November in retrograde motion and the planet of dreams has just embarked on his most exciting retrograde phase yet. When Neptune returned in 2012 it was to find that Chiron, the planet of healing was already here and as he has also spent from June to November in retrograde motion, this included a need to confront old professional ghosts or demons. Chiron finally left in February and this is Neptune's first solo retrograde phase, one where is able to make it all about revisiting old professional dreams. Neptune received a lot of support from Mars and Mercury in your income sector last month and that support will continue from the Sun and Venus there, this month. This is Neptune's first full month in retrograde motion and with no other activity here or on the job front, this is a chance to pull back. The Moon's return to your career sector from 20th July to 22nd July will be a chance to check in. The Moon returned just hours after Neptune turned retrograde last month, so its return four weeks later will be a chance to gauge the journey since then. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your work sector from 10th July to 13th July will do more than give you an intuitive read on work and job matters. Returning a week after a total solar eclipse in your income sector and moving into a positive aspect with forces there and with Neptune, this will bring forces across the income, work and career fronts together.
There is a whole new sense of excitement across the professional front this month, despite the fact that all four planets in your two professional houses will spend the month at a near standstill. Ahead of Ceres' direct turn in your work sector on 18th July and Jupiter's early next month, both are slowing to a crawl. At the same time, ahead of Chiron's retrograde turn in your career sector on 9th July and Eris' on 21st July, they too are slowing to a crawl. By mid month all four planets will be at a near standstill. Yet despite job and career matters seeming to become stalled, there is a huge amount of confidence. This is lucky Jupiter's last full month in retrograde motion in your work sector for another 12 years and with the pressure from planets moving through a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart now behind him, any tension is gone. Instead, there is a chance to make the most of a chance to retrace your steps, with the doors still open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. With both planets in your career sector turning retrograde, any urgency is dropping back and over the course of the month, the doors will open to the past, second chances and untapped professional potential as well. However, what makes this month so exciting and has planets on both the job and career fronts inspired, is the growing amount of planetary activity on the income front. You begin the month with Mercury and Juno in your income sector, but it is Mars' return on 2nd July that will really fire things up. This is the first planetary activity since the North Node left your income sector last November, so there is a huge amount of untapped income potential as well. With the Sun and Venus both in your income sector by the end of the month, each planet moving through will form a friendly aspect to all four planets on the job and career fronts. This is creating some exciting energy across the income, work and career fronts.
While a need to know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off continues to be policed and there could be work tension and job pressure when things are out of balance, the worst is behind you. It was in the second half of June that Mars, moving through a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart moved into opposition with both Saturn and Pluto, in retrograde motion in your work sector. Mars, normally a planet of action and for making things happen, was winding up your current Mars cycle and frustrated by a need to cool his heels, lashed back. With the wind down of your old solar year now underway there is still a need to pace yourself, but the Sun is not going to fight back in the way that Mars did. Instead as the Sun and Venus both oppose Saturn and Pluto this month, this is more a chance to check that there is still the right balance. In terms of energy levels and motivation, this will increase dramatically when Mars returns to Leo on 2nd July. There is still a need to work smarter and to know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off, but when you're on you'll be 'on'. With Saturn and Pluto both in retrograde motion in your work sector until September and Uranus slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn in your career sector next month, there is no reason why you can't pace yourself. What you have are forces on the job and career fronts that are playing a long game, with Pluto active on the job front until 2024 and Uranus on the career front until 2026. The Moon's monthly visits to your two professional houses are always important, with a visit to your career sector from 25th July to 27th July a chance to check in and get your professional bearings. However, it is a visit to your work sector from 15th July to 17th that could have game changing implications and unexpected developments, thanks to the lunar eclipse this will create on 17th July.
As you move into the new month you are in the tail of an extremely long push to get this professional year up to speed and with it a chance to finally pull back and even rest on your laurels a bit. This year both your work and career sectors have been implicated by Venus' retrograde phase last year, something that at the time had no professional implications at all. However, this forced Venus to drop back and by the time she eventually turned direct she was well behind the Sun and has been working to catch up. This meant that Venus has been late to return to and therefore late to leave each area of your chart this year and this has had big implications professionally. By the time Venus returned to your work sector in March every other planet had been and gone and were already racing ahead, with planetary activity already starting on the career front before she had finished exploiting job potential. Now, we have the same situation on the career front, with the Sun, Mercury, Juno and Mars all having been and gone, as was the case on the job front in March, but with Venus still here. Instead of months separating planetary activity on the job and career fronts there was none, so when she finally leaves on 4th July she is bringing everything to a close. Fortunately, you not only begin the month with the Moon in your career sector as well, but having come full circle from last month's New Moon is bringing a lot of loose ends together. The Moon is here until 2nd July, ensuring you start the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go and you have an intuitive edge during Venus' final days. When Venus leaves on 4th July there will be no more planetary activity in either of your two professional houses until she returns to your work sector over Christmas. Yet with near continuous planetary activity on either the job and/or career fronts during the entire first half of the year, there is finally a chance to pull back and let things play out.
Despite the fact that forces on the job and career fronts are actively supporting each other, the energies on each front couldn't be more different. On the job front, the only planet active is dreamy Neptune, who in his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector is pulling back and beginning a review phase. As well as a chance to revisit old dreams, this is a chance to go back over old ground. Neptune has spent from June to November in retrograde motion since returning in 2012 and will continue to until leaving in 2026. As June is when the Sun and faster moving planets always return to your career sector, it is almost as though Neptune is waiting for reinforcements so he can take a break. It has become the norm for work and job matters to slow down and career matters to accelerate at this time of year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your career sector, shining the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options. However, this is about the only thing that can be considered the norm this year. What Mars found when he returned in May, the Sun and Mercury found when they returned last month and Venus will find when she returns on 4th July, is that for the first time in 17 years the North Node is here. The North Node is a force that not only has a clear sense of professional direction but can carry things forward. And this month this is set to have major implications, with the stars literally aligning in the early days of the month. It begins with the Moon's return to your career sector on 2nd July, something it has done every four weeks since the North Node's return in November. However, this time the Sun is here and as they align to create a New Moon on 3rd July, the North Node's presence will turn this very ordinary New Moon into an extraordinary total solar eclipse. This is an opportunity for major new beginnings, as well as an unleashing of all the potential that has been building since November.
There is a mix of the expected and the unexpected this month, that together creates a month rich with potential across the income, work and career fronts. The expected is that this is the month when Eris, in your work sector for literally decades and not leaving for another three decades will always turn retrograde. With Chiron turning retrograde in your work sector on 9th July and Eris on 21st July and both remaining in retrograde motion for the rest of the year, this is when work and job matters take a back seat. Yet also expected is that July is the month that the Sun will always return to your career sector, with career matters taking over so work and job matters can regroup. Yet what is unexpected is both the level of planetary activity on the career front before the month even began and also the implications across the income, work and career fronts. For as Juno and Mercury found when they returned to your career sector last month and Mars will find when he returns on 2nd July, the Sun on 23rd July and Venus on 28th July is both the huge amount of untapped professional potential and the presence of lucky Jupiter in your income sector. This is the first planetary activity on the career front since the North Node left in November, with a huge amount of potential building since then. As each planet returns to and moves through your career sector they will move into a friendly aspect to Chiron and Eris on the job front and to both Ceres and Jupiter in your income sector. On all three fronts, there is an enormous amount of untapped potential, with mutual support holding the keys that can unlock potential across the income, work and career fronts. With Mars returning on 2nd July and not leaving until mid August, as well as fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, he will be the engine driving things across the income, work and career fronts.
Things have dialled back on the job front since Venus left your work sector last month and in the process, this creates a valuable chance to regroup and even take things easy. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus was late returning to your work sector this year and therefore late to leave and with Mars having kicked things off early with his return in February, this created an extraordinarily long period of busy and active action on the job front. This began back in February and only ended with Venus' departure last month. It was Uranus' return in early March that saw the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected arrive in the busiest point of the year. Here until 2026 and slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month, Uranus is keeping the wheels turning but at a slower pace. What the professional gods know that you don't, is that the same caravan of planets that made the period from February to June so busy is about to do the same on the career front from next month. This time the same amount of planets will move through but in a more compressed time period, starting with Mars' return on 18th August and ending with his departure on 4th October. Instead of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars moving through over the four months they took to move through your work sector in the first half of the year, they will unleash the same amount of energy over just a seven week period. So when the professional gods give you a chance to pull back and make the most of the first relatively quiet month on the professional front since January, there is a need to pay attention. This also makes the Moon's monthly visits to your two professional houses a lot more important. The Moon's visit to your career sector from the 6th July to 8th July is not the last visit before Mars returns. However, as the Moon fuels your professional instincts and imagination this will be a valuable chance to pick up information from the professional gods ahead of time. The Moon's visit to your work sector from 25th July to 27th July will be a chance to check in with Uranus and with work and job matters.
Things might take a quieter turn on the professional front this month but the early part of the month is critical for steering things in the right direction. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus was late to return to your busy work sector and late to leave still has things in motion. Venus is still in your work sector as you move into the new month, but leaving on 4th July this is both the tail end of her short 25 day visit and the months of planetary activity that began months before she returned. Fortunately, you also begin the month with the Moon in your work sector, able to start the month with heart, intuition, instincts and imagination on the same page. There will be no more planetary activity on the job front once Venus leaves until 2020, but considering the planetary activity over the last four months, including Mars' first visit since 2017, this leaves you with more than enough momentum. Think of everything that has transpired on the job front over the last four months like preparing your car for a road trip. The Sun, Mercury and Mars have ensured your gas tank is full, your luggage is loaded and mechanically everything you need for the journey ahead is in top condition. Now you are in the driveway and Venus' is charged with the last step, which is to enter your destination and journey into the GPS. Venus doesn't have to reinvent the wheel, for you have more than enough momentum and resources to keep work and job matters moving for the rest of the year. Venus' final days are all about knowing what you want to do with the momentum and resources you already have and where you want this to take you. The Moon will return on 27th July with a chance to check in and every four weeks after that. However, with the asteroid Pallas Athena, the goddess of wisdom in the last full month of an incredibly long journey that began last November, you have a sense of professional direction and a lot of wisdom to draw on.
July is often the busiest month of any year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your busy work sector. Yet, long before the Sun returned last month things had already become busy, a lot earlier in the year than is normally the case and with a lot more ferocity. This was thanks to Mars' return in May, with his first visit in two years a chance to fire up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit, along with the motivation to make things happen and to get things done. Fortunately, you had Mercury there until late last month and this smart and intellectually savvy planet will also retrograde back in for a double dip visit on 19th July. I say fortunately, for Mercury allowed you to work smarter at a time when Mars was being confronted by Saturn and Pluto, in an attempt to slow things down. In the second half of June, this may have been frustrating and may even have created some work tension and job pressure, but there is a reason why it was important to pace yourself. That reason is a total solar eclipse here in your work sector on 3rd July, just a day after Mars finally leaves. Mars' aim is to leave you with everything on the floor and he judges himself a job well done if you are completely spent by the time he leaves, with nothing left to give. However, with a total solar eclipse opening major new doors just a day after Mars leaves and Venus returning the next day to begin attracting new opportunities, his departure is not the finishing line it often is. Instead, this is just the starting line. Yet it is the progress Mars has been able to make that means you are ready for whatever this solar eclipse might trigger and the job potential this will unleash. With the Sun here until 23rd July, Venus until 28th July and Mercury, who retrogrades back on 19th July here next month, things will continue to unfold throughout the month, making it important to pace yourself.
By the time you move into the new month you will be starting to suspect that something exciting is brewing and this will have implications across the income, work and career fronts. While the Sun will always return to your busy work sector in July, not returning until 23rd July this is something that doesn't usually kick in until later in the month. In addition, as there is rarely any planetary activity on either the job or career fronts in the first half of each year, this is often a cold start. Based on previous experience, there shouldn't be the level of excitement and anticipation across the income, work and career fronts that there is likely to be. You begin the month with Juno and Mercury in your work sector, which at this point is just a toe in the door. Yet this is enough for your sixth sense to get a sense of what lies beyond the door. To start with, the asteroid Juno is more focused on developing a sense of commitment and resolve while Mercury, already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn on 8th July is more focused on slowly getting your head in the game. Yet what they have both found is that for the first time in 12 years you have lucky Jupiter in your career sector. There will always be some planetary activity on the income front, with Juno and Mercury already connecting with forces on both fronts by the time you move into the new month. It is just a day later that things literally take off, with Mars bursting onto the scene as he returns to your work sector on 2nd July. The Moon's return two days later will give you more than an intuitive read on work and job matters and on the influences in play. With planets in the early degrees of your income and career sectors, Mars' work passions, fighting and competitive spirit will have an impact across the income, work and career fronts. Once unleashed this is here to stay or at least into later next month. By the time the Sun returns on 23rd July, opportunities will not only be expanding on the job front but across the income, work and career fronts.
