The Cards and the Stars: Monthly Horoscope for July 2018

General Overview, All Signs

As an inherently good influence, finding the Sun is a positive development. It is suggestive of personal gain, and that personal goals and joy are within reach this month, if you are willing to invest the effort to actualize them. If you find yourself approaching a moment that has the potential to change your life, remember to take full advantage of this time and you will achieve a future of endless possibility.

With the Two of Cups reversed, you may be struggling to form new partnerships and relationships due to a lack of trust or unfinished business from the past. You may also find yourself reluctant to expose yourself or your true feelings. Your behavior and mood may become guarded and constrained. Unfortunately, something in your life is imbalanced, and not in your favor. It’s a good time to take stock, not only of where you stand in the world and with others, but of yourself. Self-examination will be required to steer clear of difficulties. 

The element of the Cups suit is water; its season is summer.  Abundance and fertility, liquidity and love are denoted by this card: Although the reversed Two of Cups bespeaks difficulties, the Ace of Cups here represents a positive resolution: as certain as a waterfall. This card depicts water lilies, some in bloom but some still in bud. There is still room for growth and development. It’s possible a period of calm and balance is coming for you.

By Astrological Sign

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Being complimentary towards others this month is the right thing to do, but honest compliments will also redound in your favor right now. Speak truthfully, cautiously— but speak. Putting yourself forward or embracing change becomes easier around the 20th; be brave and listen to your intuitions. Towards the end of the month, beware the temptation to speak hastily, especially on social media. Let wisdom be your guide. Beware temptations this month to be envious. Tarot: Judgement. Aura: Brick Red. Spirit Animal: Rabbit. Lucky Numbers: 4, 8, 12, 13, 23, 31.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): This month you are determined to play the power game which may include fair and unfair means to achieve your goals. After getting cornered for a long time, a spurt of energy from the planets may fill you with confidence. You may make decisions on the basis of your instincts and rest assured that none will laugh at you. On physical and metaphysical journeys alike, enjoy the small things and ask a friend to join you. Tarot card: The Hierophant (Reversed). Spirit Animal: Pony. Aura: Green. Lucky Numbers: 1, 3, 14, 17, 20, 35, 60.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): This is definitely the month to schedule that ‘state of the relationship’ meeting you’ve been delaying. Procrastination only leads to guilt and if anyone deserves a guilt-free time, it’s you. There is a fierce amount of karma coming your way, and it will feel good to soak it all up. The only thing you need to be careful about, however, is finishing a project: a minor but unusual detail will surface, and you’ll need to catch and fix it. Being happy is not always being perfect. This month would be a fruitful time to strategize creative changes you’d like to make at home or work. Tarot card: Ten of Wands. (Reversed). Spirit Animal: Lamprey. Aura: Golden Topaz. Lucky Numbers: 2, 10, 18 12, 24, 27.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): This month, you’ll have a second chance to smooth out your relationships, meet someone new, or carve out some great deals and agreements. While you may take your time initially, by the full moon, you’ll be in great shape for attracting, developing, and enhancing relationships. For now, let your body language or actions speak loudest, as tempting as it may be to talk things through. From mid-month, you’ll be in a better position to get your verbal message across. New insights into old relationships can come to you. There can be a chance meeting that leads to new ways of thinking. Despite some hurdles to clear, you’re feeling particularly refreshed and optimistic about love and friendship this month. Tarot card: King of Swords (Reversed). Spirit Animal: Armadillo. Aura: Mint Green. Lucky Numbers: 17, 18, 30, 33, 40, 50.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Sure, you’re smart enough to know that life isn’t fair but that doesn’t always stop you from seeking justice and equality as you journey through your days. By maintaining this delicate balance between realism and idealism this month, you will be able to handle any situation, no matter how bizarre or uncomfortable it might be. Becoming a cynic might save you some disappointment here and there, but it’s much more rewarding to think that all people are equal and should be treated as such. The beginning of this month is a good time to return to or flesh out an idea you were toying with in the past; it may lead to new and exciting places. Tarot: Nine of Pentacles.  Aura: Canary Yellow. Spirit Animal: Canadian Goose. Lucky Numbers: : 6, 13, 22, 40, 41, 52.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):  You’ll find that the full moon this month illuminates the money and material belongings in your life: there may be an unusual situation, idea, or meeting that could lead to an earning opportunity or a new insight on how to manage your financial world. Around the time of the full moon, things may even be made easier for you to get what you want (material, spiritual, romantic, or professional). The trick here is that you will need to examine your heart and know clearly what it is you want; and you will have to keep in mind that “easier” is not a guarantee. Your elbow grease and clarity will be required as well. You’ll find that the end of the month seems to bring abundant attention to you. This may be a blessing or a curse. Sleep well, plan ahead, and be prepared: you’re going to be a bit more conspicuous to those around you as the month ends. Tarot: Six of Wands. Aura: Purple. Spirit Animal: Kangaroo. Lucky Numbers: 5, 18, 23, 29, 31, 55.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): You’ve learned a lot about wearing your heart on your sleeve in the past few years but now is the time to apply those lessons and share your emotions and gifts with the world and those you love. A money or material concern could arise around the time of the full moon. It won’t look or sound simple, but it really will be. Don’t let other people’s opinions muddy the mental waters for you; you’ve got this. In business, you may come across a financial backer who has not only funds but a common sense stability to add to your current project. If you have an idea, make it into reality. This is the month to trust your instincts; combined with prudence and caution, they won’t steer you awry.  Tarot: Seven of Swords.  Aura: Pearl White. Spirit Animal: Earthworm. Lucky Numbers: 7, 8, 11, 34, 46, 57.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): You may need to work harder than you thought to get along with everyone around you and to make peace with situations you’d previously have found intolerable. You’ll see that what you deserve is what you should receive, and if you need to make some changes – for the good of not just yourself, but also for those who love you – there’s no better time than now. Mysteries and questions could take over the next few weeks, but don’t be surprised if the nights are where you are truly drawn. Past knowledge is the key to your future happiness and you may find this knowledge in your dreams. Tarot card: Ace of Pentacles. Spirit Animal: Chinchilla. Aura: Fig. Lucky Numbers: 2, 13, 18, 25, 33, 53.

Pisces (February 19  – March 20): This month, you’re brimming with inspiration and possibility. Around the time of the new moon might be a good time for some travel: dreaming about it before hand will stoke your creativity and your mood. Watch out for jealousy, arguments, and drama towards the beginning of the month: you really don’t need or want any part of that negativity right now. If you’re considering a change of path, this month gives you the guts to reinvent yourself. Tarot: Ace of Swords. Aura: Pink. Spirit Animal: Opossum. Lucky Numbers: 2, 10,18, 31, 43, 65.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): It’s all too easy to talk someone into doing exactly what you want them to do this month. It’s nearly a given that you’ll get exactly what you want from them—you’re quite powerful now. The question, however, is this: Do you want what you want so much that you’re willing to lose your principles to have it? Think that over before you begin manipulating someone whose respect you really cherish. You’ll soon receive a surprise from someone of significance to you. You may want to prepare for a life-changing event, perhaps around the time of the new moon. Tarot: The Lovers (Reversed). Aura: Cerulean Blue. Spirit Animal: Osprey. Lucky Numbers: 4, 6, 20, 31, 32, 39.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): This month, you’ll have a second chance to smooth out your relationships, meet someone new, or carve out some great deals and agreements. While you may take your time initially, by mid-month, you’ll be in great shape for attracting, developing, and enhancing relationships. For now, let your body language or actions speak loudest, as tempting as it may be to talk things through. From the 20th, you’ll be in a better position to get your verbal message across. Despite some hurdles to clear, you’re feeling particularly refreshed and optimistic about love and friendship this month. Tarot card of the month: Six of Cups. Spirit Animal: Gypsy Moth. Aura: Carnelian. Lucky Numbers: 7, 8, 18, 21, 36, 63.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The obstacles that are planted in the middle of your path this month are not as daunting as they might first appear to be. You have to assess the situation, then step back and form a game plan. Taking a break before you dive in will help you stay fresh and get an accurate idea of the troubles that lie ahead. They won’t look so big once after all. Tarot card of the month: Queen of Cups. Spirit Animal: Wallaby. Aura: Chartreuse. Lucky Days. 1, 16, 18, 30, 46, 48.
