The latter half of the month lightens the mood and provides a more bubbly, playful, and productive burst of energy. Here’s what these transits mean for you this July based on your rising sign.

Aries

If you’re an Aries rising, the first half of this month will be focused on your emotional world and family life. You may be more inclined to spend time at the house and feeling a little more self-conscious than usual, and we all have our moments, so don’t stress! However, be willing to change plans, and go spend time with friends later in the month. You might even have a summer fling if you’ve been hoping for it.

Taurus

This month has been all about communication for Taurus risings. You may find the words are coming much easier to you than normal, and you have been full of inspiration for the past month. As the month progresses, you will be called to look inward and reflect on your personal habits. The key to growth is self-awareness, and the Chiron retrograde demands that you maintain or expand your understanding and become more in tune with yourself.

Gemini

Gemini risings may find themselves spending left and right for the beginning of the month, and this theme may continue when Vesta moves into your first house. This month may be the embodiment of treating yourself, but going forward, you may be asked to take another look at the company you keep. The later half of the month may push you to have necessary conversations, however unpleasant, if you have been avoiding it. The good news is that it might be easier than normal to do so.

Cancer

If your rising sign is Cancer, all eyes are on you at the beginning of this month, with the sun, moon and Mercury spotlighting your image, individuality, and the things that bring you joy. You may experience a small rebirth this month, but beware of power struggles later in the month and don’t be afraid to stick to your values. It may also be a good time to try a new hairstyle or experiment with beauty, you might find something you really like.

Leo

Leo risings should step back and reprioritize their emotional health for the first part of the month, as it may be quite draining if you’re pushing yourself too hard. Try going out and doing something new—if you can safely—around the 20th-23rd. If you’re looking for love or friendship, you may find some new prospects around this time, just be careful not to ruffle feathers unintentionally.

Virgo

If you’re a Virgo rising, the beginning of this month will have you focused on friendships, networking and wishful thinking. This would be a good time to go out and meet new people, if you are able to do so safely, otherwise look at taking practical steps to achieve your goals. Later in the month, you may be feeling more drained than usual, although Mars going through your first house will provide an extra kick and refresher for you. The keyword for this month is proactiveness.

A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “Genie” – Girls’ Generation


Libra

This month may be quite challenging for Libra risings, although opportunities for fun are on their way later in the month. Be prepared to re-evaluate the relationships you have starting around the 15th, and don’t be afraid to let go if they’re not good for you. Towards the end of the month, you may notice you’re having trouble completing tasks and being motivated, so be sure to take breaks so you don’t burn out.

Scorpio

Scorpio risings may find themselves craving a getaway from their routine. Now would be a great time to plan a dream vacation to somewhere you’ve never been, far away from where you’re currently living. However, this month also asks you to take learning into your own hands, and learn something new. The latter part of the month will highlight your career, image and public persona. This would be a great time to put in extra work, in order to further grow your prospects.

Sagittarius

This month, you’ll likely find yourself doing more introspection and developing your relationships during the first part of the month, as the sun, moon and Mercury highlight the area of life dealing with intimacy. There is a serious need for communication and understanding between you and the people in your life at the moment. However, once you come to a mutual understanding, the second part of the month may bring more fun for you. Just make sure you’re both doing the work, as a relationship is a two-way street.

Capricorn

Capricorn is one of the rising signs facing significant opportunities for introspection this month, with the sun and Mercury activating themes around secrecy and intimacy around the 22nd of the month, and the Chiron retrograde happening in the area of life dealing with family, privacy and emotional health around the 15th. Your values may be called into question, and this may be a time where choosing your battles is important.

A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “Advice” – Taemin


Aquarius

Aquarius risings should focus on their health and routines for the first part of the month, with the sun, moon and Mercury activating the house of practicality and responsibility. Sometimes, the best self-care is taking care of what needs to be done. The second half of the month may bring romance, if that’s what you’re looking for. If not, you might find yourself becoming closer with your friends and feeling extra appreciative of the people who bring positivity into your life.

A Recommendation from EnVi’s Cosmic Playlist: “Lucky One” – EXO


Pisces

For those who have their ascendant in Pisces, enjoy the time you’re being allotted to pursue your passions and have fun. Later in the month, things will shift and you will be expected to take care of business. Don’t forget to indulge a little bit, as improving your surroundings may help improve your emotional health and bring life to your space. Be careful about overspending this month, and make sure you have some cash stored away for a rainy day.
