Your weekly horoscope for July 1-7, 2024

Here's what's in store for your zodiac sign this week.

With this week’s Sun, Venus and new moon in the zodiac’s most domestic sign, home is where the heat is, in ways both charming and challenging. Saturday’s new moon is the year’s best for tuning in and checking whether your inner needs are being met. Here’s your weekly horoscope July 1-7, 2024. 

Cancer, Jun 21 – Jul 22

Celebrated as the moon of the Divine Feminine, the new moon in Cancer on 6 July is your personal annual reset date. Spending this beneficial astrological portal in or near water can be especially healing, so head for the river or ocean, pool party or beach weekend, home bath or spa. 

Leo, Jul 23 – Aug 22

The current Sun/Saturn alignment calls for your best heart-centred leadership, as in calm direction, downplaying drama, and ensuring everyone’s contributions are acknowledged. And let’s not pretend that the whole of July won’t be taken up event-planning the celebrations for this year’s celestial Festival Of You.

Virgo, Aug 23 – Sep 22

Virgo’s planet mentor Mercury moving into socializing mode packs your calendar and brightens your creative ideas with extra eloquence. If you’re making a pitch or presentation, go for maximum flair and vivacity, because in this lavish transit too much is likely to be just enough. 

Libra, Sep 23 – Oct 22

This week’s harmonizing alignment of agreeable Venus and stable Saturn supports having a heart-to-heart with friends, family, partners or colleagues to discuss future plans. Bonus news: angels are likely to arrive in the most ordinary of outfits, close to home, seemingly by accident, right on your doorstep.

Scorpio, Oct 23 – Nov 21

July’s polarities combine soft and tough, a not unfamiliar scenario for Scorpios. Security-conscious and protective, this month suggests strengthening your screening processes and filters so you can relax your guard and focus on the genuine connections and deeper bonding available during this compassionate transit. 

Sagittarius, Nov 22 – Dec 21

With early July’s sentimental sun, Venus and new moon, nostalgia is strong and emotions close to the surface, but be choosy about who you unburden to. Archers are the zodiac’s travellers, and the land of your ancestors could be calling you to revisit relatives or places that hold family memories. 

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 19

Your guiding planet Saturn retrograde for the rest of this year in the sign of mystery suggests that discerning between fact, fiction, fantasy and fabrication is going to be your main task in the coming months. The good news? This is something sensible Saturn’s reversal will definitely assist with.   

Aquarius, Jan 20 – Feb 18

July’s celestial energetics in your sector of efficient organization suggest a declutter of home, mind and habits. This is a helpful transit to review finances if your lifestyle is over budget, to cut superfluous stuff, trim waste, repurpose and recycle. No need to be overly austere; just keep luxuries to affordable doses. 

Pisces, Feb 18 – Mar 20

Venus in her coziest mode promises plenty of seasonal bonding and may have you thinking about steps you might want to take to protect what’s precious, whether that’s your inner sanctum, intellectual property or the planet’s precarious future. Tune in next week for Saturn and Neptune reversing in your sign…  

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 19

The Ram’s style is straightforward, but in the zodiac’s month of the lateral Crab, which skitters from side to side towards its destination, people are likely to behave in the same way, so think of indirect strategies, alternative tactics, different points of entry: back stairs, side door, service lift, open window.

Taurus, Apr 20 – May 20

With insistent Mars in Taurus you’re primed to be highly motivated, persistent and determined, but will also need to be sensitive this week to when that forward drive might veer towards pushy. Any feeling of being pressured is only likely to meet with resistance from this week’s citizens. 

Gemini, May 21 – Jun 20

The empathetic connection of Mercury and Neptune in caring water signs for the first days of July sensitizes your extra-sensory listening skills. So tap into this open-hearted transit, and rather than offering advice or solutions this week, just let people share how they’re feeling.
