July 2016 Horoscopes: Gemini
MAY 21 – JUNE 20
Your friends might be on vacation, but you’re hard at work. With the Cancer New Moon in your second house of wealth this July 4, you’re following Bey’s lead and stacking your paper—because the only thing more relaxing than a weekend on the Amalfi Coast is money in the bank. Alignments from Mercury and Venus show excellent opportunities coming from your extended network and creative pursuits. Don’t sleep on this one.
Venus’ entry into Leo on July 12 might have you feeling a little more like a “social butterfly” than usual, and for good reason: Leo is in your communication sector. With the love goddess there, you want to connect with and charm everyone you meet. She’s joined by your ruler, Mercury, the following day, enhancing your powers of conversation. By the time the Sun enters Leo on July 22, you’ll have everyone vying for your attention.
On July 19, your personal magnetism reaches its height with the Capricorn Full Moon in your eighth house. This area of the astrology chart is associated with taboo topics like sex and money, but Gemini’s aren’t bashful. With potent Mars and expansive Jupiter in sync, this moon could reveal a personal secret—either your own or someone else’s. Cranky Uranus is throwing shade from your eleventh house of friends, so their reactions might surprise you.
Uranus turns retrograde in Aries on July 29, encouraging you to ask how much freedom you need in your relationships with groups and communities. This can be social media too. Is your Instagram feed dragging you down? Maybe it’s time to ditch it. Say “bye” to whatever isn’t working and cut loose.
