We know there’s so much going on in the world. Many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. And though the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology (including horoscopes) may at least provide solace and comfort through times of uncertainty.
However, there’s one thing that is certain: Black lives matter. For our Black readers: We see you, and hope that you are able to practice self-care — right now and always. For our non-Black readers seeking to become better allies, we urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to. If you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
Welcome to July, everyone! Summer is here. While it’s important to let off some steam, we’re also still in the midst of a pandemic, and many of us are also organizing a revolution and having important conversations about race and police brutality in America. This month won’t exactly be easy, but it will be important.
Circle Sunday, July 5 on your calendar. There is a full moon in hardworking Capricorn and it’s also a lunar eclipse. Eclipses are wild cards. They bring surprise endings. Be ready to reevaluate some relationships, as you are likely going to close the door on some that have long needed to be over. You can do this work on your own, though. You don’t need to invite drama into your life. Lay low, and practice self-care.
This Mercury retrograde was lighter than usual, but we’re still glad to see it end on Sunday, July 12. Communication will start to flow easier, and hopefully the eclipse has already warned exes to stay away. If not, you’ll have the strength to create boundaries yourself.
Many of us have lost a lot this year. Whether that’s the loss of a job, a loved one, or the routines that kept us feeling steady, it’s important to take a moment to mourn. There is a new moon in caring Cancer on Monday, July 20. Use this time to meditate on what you’ve been through, and remember that it’s okay to feel sad. It’s important to process emotions rather than let them stew.
After all that healthy emotional processing, get ready for Leo season’s arrival on Wednesday, July 22. This sign loves attention and is ruled by the sun. Use your powers — whatever you excel at — for good. No more hiding in the shadows. Do what you can to make the world a better place. See you in August!
