Monthly horoscope Aquarius July 2018
Written by Kurt Franz
July – Mercury Demands Your Full Concentration
The sun will be in the sign Cancer throughout most of the month forming a quincunx aspect that will continue to encourage you to consider whether it’s time to make changes in some areas of your life. The stars put us in such situations again and again, and nothing in life lasts forever. The only way to face these changes is to continue learning and adjust to them as best you can, with the support of the stars of course.
Less than Optimal Support from Mercury
Mercury has been in an oppositional position since June 29th, so you can expect to see certain disruptions come up in your career and communications. Experience shows you also might not be thinking as clearly as normal during this time. Strange thoughts might come to the forefront of your mind like water droplets springing from a waterfall. These could turn out to be as refreshing as those droplets are on a hot summer day. Your thoughts might seem slower and more laborious during this time. After July 26th Mars will once again be in retrograde and could pose additional obstacles. Use extra caution in any business-related negotiations or contracts.
Venus in a Transitional State
Venus will still be having an indirect effect on Aquarians. Even though we might wish it could deliver its positive energy to us at all times, they will be subsiding during this time and you’ll be seeing more of the serious side of life. Venus will still be in Leo, which puts it in an oppositional position. Things will get better after July 10th as the sun enters the sign Virgo and gives up that opposition. This is great news, but in reality it’s just part of a transition to much better things. The sun will remain somewhat critical, and will be teaching Aquarians that the only way to have a truly ideal life is to make sure you’re in harmony with your partner. This is another great opportunity to ensure everything’s going according to plan.
Mars Turns the Ship Around
If Mars decides to achieve something and bend circumstances to its will, it will always be successful. It will still be in your own sign of Aquarius and will stay there throughout the month, so Aquarians who are determined to get their projects done and have important things on the agenda will enjoy good prospects. Nevertheless, hubris and arrogance remain serious pitfalls, as Jupiter warns us. Likewise, Mercury warns against errors. But if you can stay reasonable and keep a level head, you’ll be able to be successful.
