July 2014

Love, sweet love! It's been a preoccupation for many Pisces for the past 12 months, as expansive Jupiter paid a yearlong visit to Cancer, your fifth house of glamour, passion and creativity. Nothing to complain about there, we imagine, except maybe you've been having a little TOO much fun…and veered off track with some professional goals? Well, if anyone knows that there's more to life than work, work, work it's a magical Pisces, the sign of fantasy and escape. Since June 25, 2013, your heart has opened to new love, artistic inspiration and possibly even a baby, since the fertile fifth house rules pregnancy. 

This is also a dramatic zone of the zodiac wheel, so along with the heart-stirring moments, there could have been some blazing tempers, theatrical showdowns and intense emotional outbursts. Outspoken Jupiter in this expressive corner of your chart put your heart on your sleeve (yes, even more than usual). And while you might have a couple of battle scars from it, you've grown so much from being steeped in the "power of love." (Cue the oh-so-appropriate Celine Dion.)



The soundtrack is about to change, though. On July 16, Jupiter will depart watery Cancer moving into fiery Leo, your sixth house of health, fitness and organization. Jupiter will remain in Leo until August 11, 2015, giving you 13 golden months to bring vibrant well-being back into your life. While the past year may have been all about truffled disco fries, decadent desserts, one-night stands and dancing until dawn, this one is more about gluten-free cupcakes, regular bedtimes and trimming the excess from your life. Sound like a snore? Well, maybe not. You might actually be ready to put a little order back in your life, especially if you’re feeling scattered and unfocused. And while hedonism is fabulous, you might also be feeling the wear and tear if you’ve neglected your body, O.D.’d on alcohol or caffeine, or scarfed down junk food that made you feel sluggish.

Since the sixth house rules service, you could get involved in volunteer work or a project that makes a difference. You might do work that has a “green” or eco-conscious element to it. The crafty sixth house can stoke your DIY side, so maybe you’ll be launching that Etsy shop to sell your creations. It’s also a tech-savvy year, so you might improve your computer skills (perhaps with online courses from somewhere like Lynda.com). Jupiter last visited Leo from August 2002-September 2003, so page back to that era for clues about resurfacing themes. And stay tuned for the July 25 Leo new moon, which will kick-start your efforts to get healthy and organized.

Before you get all “geek chic” on us, though, schedule one last hurrah at the July 12 Capricorn full moon, which falls in your lighthearted eleventh house of group activity. Hello, celebration! Say yes to any parties, industry events and networking opportunities around this date. This full moon is the culmination of the Capricorn new moon back on January 1, so try to remember your New Year’s resolutions if you made any, because they could be coming full circle. A key group of friends could be in the spotlight, or a collaborative project could reach a turning point. Maybe you realize that it’s time to upgrade your inner circle, moving away from a gossipy or uninspiring clique toward a positive, empowering tribe.

If things have gotten intense in the jealousy-and-intrigue department, that will clear up later this month. Since December 7, competitive Mars has been taking an extended trip through Libra, your eighth house of intimacy, shared resources and long-term finance. Your life may have felt like bad pulp fiction at moments, with high highs and low lows, and even some extreme peaks and valleys with your energy levels. Your money may have been similarly extreme—you might have come into large sums, but spent it just as fast, possibly on legal bills, real estate, tax or debt. These wildly fluctuating moods and finances will stabilize after July 25, when Mars moves into Scorpio, your ninth house of travel and study. Pack your bags, Pisces—you could be inspired to jet off on a vacation or an educational journey that broadens your horizons and perspective. You’ll find this Mars phase, which lasts until September 13, much easier to handle. Now, what were you so hung up about? You’ll scarcely remember once you turn your mind to a big, visionary project, powered by rocket fuel from Mars.
Summer lovin’ could be high on your agenda as July begins. The Sun is in Cancer, your lusty and romantic fifth house, until July 22. And bountiful Jupiter is rounding out its yearlong visit to Cancer, which will end on July 16. Make hay while the Sun shines, as the saying goes—specifically during the first half of July. Book that vacation for two, somewhere that you can indulge your senses and crank up the romance full-blast. If you’re single, get active online or ask friends to hook you up. You might not even be in the mood for anything serious now. Swipe through the smoldering selection on Tinder—or just head out to the sexiest hotspots in town to flirt up a storm.

Spicing things up even more, sexy Mars is wrapping up a nine-month run through Libra, your eighth house of sex, intimacy and intense bonding. Mars first entered Libra on December 7, 2013 and it will stay until this July 25. During this time, you’ve really felt the heat, perhaps with an awakened lust—and some fun new playmates to help you explore that. The possessive eighth house could have stirred the green-eyed monster, too. Perhaps you battled bouts of jealousy, competitiveness and suspicion with Mars here—and since the eighth house rules investigation, your research might have turned up some interesting tidbits on the object of your lust. 



You might need to dial it down a little, Pisces, because you Mars here makes you come on extra-strong. Of course, if there’s a willing partner in the mix, you could push the erotic edges to their so-called limit. For a little help with that, check out Kitty Cavalier’s new book on Sacred Seduction—right up a Pisces’ alley.

Alas, it won’t be all red roses and sexy rooftop date nights—at least not on a couple specific days this month, when the Cancer Sun gets involved in interplanetary clashes. The first is on July 4, when the Sun will oppose controlling Pluto in your group activity house. A meddling or jealous friend might try to wedge their way into your business, or could even have a hidden agenda that doesn’t involve supporting you. Distance yourself from drama queens, especially if you’re celebrating the July 4 holiday in the U.S. If you just know that pot-stirring person will be at the barbecue, keep your distance, or plan your entrance and exit NOT to coincide with theirs. 

Jealous much? Mars in your intimacy house will have one final showdown on July 19, when it forms a tense, 90-degree angle (called a square) with the Sun in your dramatic fifth house. There’s a thin line between love and hate, Pisces, and you’ll feel it more than ever today. Of course, mixed with strong attraction, that contempt can translate into fireworks behind closed doors. (Why IS it that the people who make us the angriest can turn us on the most?) You could have the best sex of the entire year—if not your entire life—even if it’s something you regret a few days later. 

If you’re happily coupled, this friction could bring dynamic energy to your pairing. Perhaps one of you feels an attraction to someone else, or gets a little flirty. Well, sometimes that can stir things up in a sexy way. But with these two planets forming a tense square, it’s likely that you might be making a little bit of war before you get around to the making love part. Hash out whatever’s going on below the surface. Once it’s all out in the open, you could find that your bond gets even stronger. The truth shall set you free!

Are you thinking of moving in together, expanding your family or just making your house into an enchanting space that invites new love? Romantic Venus is in Gemini, your domestic fourth house, until July 18. This is a great time to redecorate with your sweetie, talk kids, nest or meet each other’s families. A vacation with the kids or with relatives could bring you closer, provided you avoid the dicey dates we mentioned above. On the 18th, Venus moves into Cancer, your passion house, for almost a month. Hopefully this will offset the tricky Sun-Mars square on the 19th, since harmonizer Venus will extend an olive branch, helping to smooth out any drama.
Get your kicks in during the first half of July, because it’s going to be all about business (well, mostly) after that. On July 16, expansive Jupiter starts at 13-month trek through Leo, your sixth house of efficiency, organization and service. It’s time to clean things up behind the scenes. If you’re the kind of Pisces who wings it, or skims the details while relying on the universe to protect you…well, that insurance policy is gonna need an upgrade. With info-hungry Jupiter on the prowl, it’s time to read the fine print and not cut corners. If you don’t know how to do something, it’s time to hire someone who does and/or learn it yourself. The sixth house rules helpful people and service providers, so you may expand and hire an assistant or upgrade the people on Team Pisces: babysitters, house cleaners, landscapers, and so on.

Jupiter encourages educational growth, so if you’ve been telling yourself “I’m not good at that,” it could be time to challenge that belief. Get busy picking up some new skills, or polishing the ones you have. In this economy, we all need to be lifelong learners who constantly improve our aptitudes. If you’re in between career paths, this might be the year that you take a “bridge job”—bartending, working in an office, helping to manage a short-term project. Who knows? You might even discover a whole new direction from that. But even if you don’t, this is an opportunity to get your finances back on track, or to pay the bills while you work on your “art” after hours and save your best mental energy for yourself.



Philosophical Jupiter in your service-driven sixth house helps you become more mindful about your daily tasks, too. Get ready for an intimate lesson on the Buddhist concept of “chop wood, carry water”—in other words, finding enlightenment in the flow and rhythm of that day-to-day routine. It will be quite a switch, Pisces, since Jupiter has spent the past year in Cancer, your fifth house of creative expression, drama and fun. Of course, your scales have probably tipped TOO far in that direction, which is why you’ll also welcome Jupiter’s assistance in getting your life back on track. You can spin way out into the ether, imaginative Pisces, but you also need some grounding structure and daily rituals to keep you from floating away. 

Looking to break into a new industry? Don’t turn your nose up at a short internship. This book by The Intern Queen will help you assess if that’s the right route for you. Good old-fashioned networking won’t fail you now either. Circle the July 12 Capricorn new moon in your teamwork and technology house as the ideal day to hit an industry event, spiff up your LinkedIn profile and troll through your tribe for connections. It’s a great day to launch a website, a social media campaign or an online marketing initiative, too. 

And when go-getter Mars enters your ninth house of entrepreneurship from July 25-September 13, you’ll be even more fired up to start working toward your dreams. The ninth house rules publishing and higher education, so maybe it’s time to put your world-changing ideas on paper (or into pixels), or to send away for college and extension course catalogues. 

This Mars move will be a welcome change, since the high-intensity planet has spent an extra-long time in Libra, your eighth house of joint ventures, long-term finance and large lump sums. On the upside, Mars can be motivating—you may have learned about investing, bought or sold real estate, applied for a loan/grant, or received a windfall (maybe an inheritance). If you were swimming in debt, this energetic time was favorable for consolidating and paying it off. Your expenses may have ballooned, too, and stressful Mars could have you feeling the pinch.

Is it time to scale back your lifestyle a little bit—just to catch up? With unpredictable Uranus going retrograde (backward) in your work and money house from July 21-December 21, you might experience a little bit of turbulence with your finances. Uranus rules sudden events, so a client or job could take a different direction. If a source of income goes away unexpectedly, don’t freak out, because revolutionary Uranus certainly has something better in store for you. Maybe it’s time to go freelance or take flexible hours. 

Since retrogrades ruled the past, be sure to ping an old colleague or employer—they could have an opening for you. Don’t be surprised if one of them contacts you out of the blue in the next five months, too. Get all the details before you go back (there WAS a reason you left before, right?) and make sure you know what you’d be getting yourself into. Uranus rules technology, so here’s yet another call from the cosmos to get your digital skills up to par, or to use social media to reconnect with old clients.
On July 16, a major health cycle begins, when abundant Jupiter starts a 13-month visit to Leo, your sixth house of wellness, exercise and nutrition. You could get into the best shape of your life between now and August 2015, becoming extra adventurous about your dietary habits and fitness routines. Worldly Jupiter interests you in health practices form all over the world, too, (Ayurveda, Thai massage, etc.) and you might even mix travel with your training. Is Bikini Boot Camp in Tulum, Mexico calling your name—or one of these healthy hotels and resorts (http://www.fitsugar.com/Best-Fitness-Health-Hotels-Resorts-23150601)? 
 


Just don’t expect to turn into a fierce, fighting machine without breaking a sweat, Pisces. Jupiter rules indulgence, so interestingly, some people actually end up putting on weight while Jupiter is in this realm of your chart. (Sure, that cupcake is gluten-free…but it’s also loaded with refined sugar.) The sixth house rules detail-oriented work, so if you have a sedentary lifestyle, expansive Jupiter might even increase the hours you spend sitting at your computer or even just stressing out, which can release cortisol. For a body-positive and new spin on this, check out Jessica Ortner's New York Times bestseller The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence. The July 26 Leo new moon will really set your healthy living plans into motion, so mark this as a date to set intentions and begin a new approach.

Sticking to good habits could get a little tricky while disruptive Uranus goes retrograde (backward) in Aries, your house of routine, from July 21-December 21. Don’t box yourself into anything TOO regimented. The point here is to move and eat well, not torture yourself with a barking boot camp instructor at sunrise or suppress your appetite for pleasure (what a waste!). Just come up with a fun list of options for moving and nourishing yourself—oh, and a great playlist, too. Make it an adventure instead of another thing to “do.”
