Virgo Monthly Horoscope – July 2018

Virgo (Born August 23 to September 2) AND Virgo Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Virgo:

July 2018 Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until July 22nd:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar eleventh house. During this cycle, you are planting seeds for the future, dreaming up plans that you might begin to develop two months down the road, if they still seem viable then. You are more aware of the benefits of networking, and you might find some great ideas through others now. You might be working in a team now. You could be questioning some of the rules you have been living by and you could be ready to try something totally new. You are more attracted to that which is progressive or unconventional during this cycle.

From July 23rd forward:

The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until the 10th: 

Venus continues to transit through your solar twelfth house now. The twelfth house is a sector of endings, privacy, and mental health, and with Venus here, it's possible that you are reviewing your feelings for someone, or enjoying a more private love life for the time being. You may not be open with your affections for whatever reason now, and this shouldn't be a problem—it may be difficult to articulate, verbalize, or intellectualize your feelings for the time being. Doing some soul-searching as well as an enhanced ability to perceive other dimensions in love can lead you to a deeper understanding of your own love needs and possibly of a love relationship. Love might involve some form of sacrifice or simply a lot of giving and lending of support as opposed to receiving during this cycle.

From July 10th forward: 

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a
time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters,
as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more
likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms,
aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially
agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if
you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

All month: 

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house. This is a cycle in
which clear decision-making does not come easily. You are paying more attention
to unspoken or hidden elements of any circumstance. You are seeing all sides to
any given story, and forming a definite opinion does not seem "right" for the
time being. Thoughts turn to the past. It's a strong period for gaining
different perspectives on problems or issues in your life, as well as for
reflection and research, but not the easiest time for presenting your ideas.

Mercury is retrograde from July 25/26 to August 19th:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your own body language and personal manner (you may feel that others misunderstand you), as well as communications involving the career or public, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. You are ruled by Mercury, so the likelihood of being misunderstood, in general, is high. Put off career decisions as well, as career matters are Gemini-ruled for you.

Occurring in your solar twelfth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to privacy matters. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. You might unwittingly reveal something that you'd prefer to keep private. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month:

Mars continues to animate and energize your solar sixth house. Energy and initiative for work, health, and other daily activities increase. You are self-motivated when it comes to these matters. If there are disagreements and disputes that erupt on the job now, they may be due to a feeling of stress or impatience, or they could come from your desire to get things done independently. It's best to apply energy productively to completing projects that are unfinished or even to get ahead of yourself. It's a strong period for feeling motivated for starting a new health or fitness routine.

Mars is retrograde from June 26-August 27

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of intimacy, sharing, and finances because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. Anger management might be in order now, and it's a strong period for reviewing how you have been asserting yourself with a partner. There can be frustrations with how you've been managing power in a partnership, as well as drive to improve this situation. There may be a struggle with addictions at this time or the magnification of fears and phobias that have been driving your behavior. The good news is that you have a chance to better manage them.

From June 26-August 12

Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, enthusiasm for your work or health regimes, or for work projects and daily routines, could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. Work itself could seem to be less straightforward or satisfying. New initiatives with these matters may appear less exciting, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in these areas of life. For some, there can be much preoccupation with your health or work endeavors, and possibly frustration with daily routines. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness on the job. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. This Mars retrograde emphasizes practical and work matters. How you organize your time is in question now.

Overview Horoscope:

72636459d3.jpgJuly 2018 Virgo Monthly Horoscope Summary: This is a strong month for your social life, dear Virgo, even if there are some complications to manage. Relationships, in general, are in focus, and for the most part, people are helpful and supportive of you. From the 9th, lovely Venus is in your sign, forming some extra-special aspects, boosting your appeal further as well as your opportunities to enjoy yourself.

Eclipses this month pull up important themes revolving around friendships, group connections, long-term goals, and short-term routines. The total Lunar Eclipse near the end of the month gives you a push to take better care of health, routines, and work. While you're enjoying more prosperity in your social life, and the Solar Eclipse on the 12th brings a charge of energy to same, this month there may be some concerns, guilt, or confusion that needs to be addressed. This can involve a romance, a personal project or goal, or children. Some of you may have been pursuing a project on your own, and this month, you may realize that you'd benefit most either by giving up a current project or goal, or accepting that you'd be better off enlisting help. The change is likely to be an empowering one, even if there is some resistance at first!

You can feel especially confident about a particular goal or idea now. It can also be a nice time for enjoying your studies or special interest. Others might reinforce or add to your ideas in pleasant ways. The Solar Eclipse on the 12th can herald new beginnings related to friends, group associations, and important ideas and dreams.

There can be good opportunities for conversations particularly about past matters, resolving problems, forgiving, connecting, and giving others the benefit of the doubt. There are also treasures to be found in old projects, studies, and interests. Rethinking some details of recent plans can work to your benefit in the long run, especially after Mercury turns retrograde on the 25/26. From the 26th forward, though, it's important not to begin brand-new endeavors.

You may be a little fearful of changes or tense about recent developments, and you may be dealing with looming deadlines, health concerns, or scheduling issues. You might also have a strong feeling that work and daily routines are weighing you down when you'd much rather take part in more free-form activities. You might be feeling under-valued, particularly when it comes to work or the contribution you make on a daily basis -- the "unseen" things that you do. Tricky problems related to your daily routines or work, or possibly a recurring health matter, can be in focus at times in July.

Friendships and love relationships can be in conflict or competition at times this month. Or, tensions about a relationship can cut into your enjoyment of other things, people, and experiences. You may need to ease off a tendency to micromanage or over-control specific areas of life that are interfering with your growth.

From the 10th forward, motivation to pursue personal interests or studies increases, and this will get even better in the next several months. Family matters can turn a corner as well. You may return to old or abandoned dreams and plans with new excitement.

Your personal appeal and enjoyment increase wonderfully around the 13-14 and 21-22, especially. Your loyalty, reliability, and perseverance are shining now, and people find you particularly attractive for your wisdom and support. This is also a good time to apply yourself to creative work. You may be receiving compliments, gifts, and other fun feedback. There is beautiful natural confidence and contentment in you now that attracts admirers (even more so than usual) as well as favorable circumstances and opportunities into your life. This can be an excellent time for settling differences with others or enhancing relationships that are already sailing along. Particularly around the 24th, however, watch for boundary issues. You may have convinced yourself that someone else's needs are what you want, too, but this may not be the case! Before you can draw boundaries with others, you have to know them, so do take the time to understand your own, true needs, as you can be so adept at taking care of others that you forget to take good care of yourself.

A month-long cycle in which some form of retreat is helpful kicks off on the 22/23 when the Sun moves into your privacy sector. This is a good time to take things a little easier, enjoy some peace, and reflect on your year. Reinforcing this need is Mercury's retrograde turn on the 25th. Mercury is your ruler and currently transiting your privacy sector, as well. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings sudden awareness of something that's not working in the world of your work, daily routines, or health, or the need to make adjustments and meet deadlines.

July 2018 Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

9e8b4ba41e.jpgOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun lights your solar eleventh house. The Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true this month. It's a sociable sector of your chart, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, light-hearted, cosmopolitan, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off, or at least satisfies. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you're attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children (especially others' children) may increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until the 19th: 

Venus continues to transit through your solar twelfth house now. The twelfth house is a sector of endings, privacy, and mental health, and with Venus here, it's possible that you are reviewing your feelings for someone, or enjoying a more private love life for the time being. You may not be open with your affections for whatever reason now, and this shouldn't be a problem—it may be difficult to articulate, verbalize, or intellectualize your feelings for the time being.

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a

as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more
likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms,
aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially
agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if
you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until July 6th:

Mercury continues to journey through your solar eleventh house. This is a time when conversations with friends and various networking activities are much appreciated and offer learning experiences. Your ideas just now are especially progressive and unconventional, as you are questioning the rules you typically live by and entertaining some wild ideas. Not all of these ideas are necessarily going to last or lead to new projects, but it's a time of dreaming up new possibilities and new possible solutions to problems. You are especially interested in spending time with people who are like-minded. Social interactions are more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle.

From July 6th forward: 

Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues while Mercury transits the twelfth house of your solar chart. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid getting dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Creative endeavors could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position of Mercury is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mercury is retrograde from July 25/26 to August 19th:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your own body language and personal manner (you may feel that others misunderstand you), as well as communications involving the career or public, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. You are ruled by Mercury, so the likelihood of being misunderstood, in general, is high. Put off career decisions as well, as career matters are Gemini-ruled for you.

Occurring in your solar twelfth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to privacy matters. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Be as non-judgmental as you can, but do keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. You might unwittingly reveal something that you'd prefer to keep private. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month:

Mars continues to energize your solar fifth house. This brings increased energy and enthusiasm to romance, child-rearing, and creative or recreational endeavors. It can also bring some strife to these areas of your world in some cases. For the most part, however, a romance could pick up pace, you are self-motivated and inspired on creative and expressive levels, and your self-confidence is well-received by others during this cycle. You are more willing to take little risks and you are competitive in a mostly friendly way. In your enthusiasm to take the lead, try to be sensitive to and respectful of others' needs.

Mars is retrograde from June 26-August 27

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of intimacy, sharing, and finances because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. Anger management might be in order now, and it's a strong period for reviewing how you have been asserting yourself with a partner. There can be frustrations with how you've been managing power in a partnership, as well as drive to improve this situation. There may be a struggle with addictions at this time or the magnification of fears and phobias that have been driving your behavior. The good news is that you have a chance to better manage them.

From June 26-August 12

Occurring in your solar fifth house this time, enthusiasm for romance or creative project could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. A relationship with a lover or a child could become more complicated or possibly exhausting. Desires can be hard to read for existing relationships - both yours and those of a lover. There can be a change of heart, or you could be questioning what you've been pursuing in love, and a new approach becomes necessary. There could be waning interest in a hobby or a return to an old one. Some of you could be excessively preoccupied with a love relationship. New initiatives with fifth house matters may appear less exciting, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in fifth house areas of life--creativity self-expression, recreation, children, and romance. Caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident, or you could lack motivation now. Watch for pent-up anger, frustration, and passive-aggressiveness with a lover or with your children, if applicable. Refocusing, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

July 2018 Virgo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

artvirgo.jpgOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until July 12th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar tenth house. Satisfaction and fulfillment during this cycle come from doing your professional best, shining as a responsible and capable person, and contributing to the world in practical ways. You might have a chance to receive acknowledgement or praise for your work or good character now. Landing support from authority figures is easier at this time. Avoid the pitfalls of pride or arrogance standing in your way of success.

From July 12th forward:

The Sun lights your solar eleventh house. The Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true this month. It's a sociable sector of your chart, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, light-hearted, cosmopolitan, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention.

This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until July 28th: 

Venus is spending some time in "hibernation" in your privacy sector. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that your love life is stagnant, but that your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this period, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and wistfulness. Personal and social contacts may be secretive, and there can be secret love affairs, or at least very private love feelings and longings. Shyness can lead to some loneliness or romantic frustration. However, this can also be a deliciously private and intimate time.

From July 28th forward: 

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a
time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters,
as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more
likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms,

While you're enjoying more prosperity in your social life, and the Solar Eclipse on the 12th brings a charge of energy to same, this month there may be some concerns, guilt, or confusion that needs to be addressed. This can involve a romance, a personal project or goal, or children. Some of you may have been pursuing a project on your own, and this month, you may realize that you'd benefit most either by giving up a current project or goal, or accepting that you'd be better off enlisting help. The change is likely to be an empowering one, even if there is some resistance at first!

You can feel especially confident about a particular goal or idea now. It can also be a nice time for enjoying your studies or special interest. Others might reinforce or add to your ideas in pleasant ways. The Solar Eclipse on the 12th can herald new beginnings related to friends, group associations, and important ideas and dreams.

There can be good opportunities for conversations particularly about past matters, resolving problems, forgiving, connecting, and giving others the benefit of the doubt. There are also treasures to be found in old projects, studies, and interests. Rethinking some details of recent plans can work to your benefit in the long run, especially after Mercury turns retrograde on the 25/26. From the 26th forward, though, it's important not to begin brand-new endeavors.

You may be a little fearful of changes or tense about recent developments, and you may be dealing with looming deadlines, health concerns, or scheduling issues. You might also have a strong feeling that work and daily routines are weighing you down when you'd much rather take part in more free-form activities. You might be feeling under-valued, particularly when it comes to work or the contribution you make on a daily basis -- the "unseen" things that you do. Tricky problems related to your daily routines or work, or possibly a recurring health matter, can be in focus at times in July.

Friendships and love relationships can be in conflict or competition at times this month. Or, tensions about a relationship can cut into your enjoyment of other things, people, and experiences. You may need to ease off a tendency to micromanage or over-control specific areas of life that are interfering with your growth.

From the 10th forward, motivation to pursue personal interests or studies increases, and this will get even better in the next several months. Family matters can turn a corner as well. You may return to old or abandoned dreams and plans with new excitement.

Your personal appeal and enjoyment increase wonderfully around the 13-14 and 21-22, especially. Your loyalty, reliability, and perseverance are shining now, and people find you particularly attractive for your wisdom and support. This is also a good time to apply yourself to creative work. You may be receiving compliments, gifts, and other fun feedback. There is beautiful natural confidence and contentment in you now that attracts admirers (even more so than usual) as well as favorable circumstances and opportunities into your life. This can be an excellent time for settling differences with others or enhancing relationships that are already sailing along. Particularly around the 24th, however, watch for boundary issues. You may have convinced yourself that someone else's needs are what you want, too, but this may not be the case! Before you can draw boundaries with others, you have to know them, so do take the time to understand your own, true needs, as you can be so adept at taking care of others that you forget to take good care of yourself.

A month-long cycle in which some form of retreat is helpful kicks off on the 22/23 when the Sun moves into your privacy sector. This is a good time to take things a little easier, enjoy some peace, and reflect on your year. Reinforcing this need is Mercury's retrograde turn on the 25th. Mercury is your ruler and currently transiting your privacy sector, as well. The total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings sudden awareness of something that's not working in the world of your work, daily routines, or health, or the need to make adjustments and meet deadlines.
