Heavenly Headlines

JULY 2022

The emotionally self-protective and home-loving Cancer Sun will be battling against a frustratingly stuck Mars Pluto blockage up to the 2nd which has made late June tiresome. As it lifts and the mood lightens, Mars then moves into steady though stubborn Taurus to stay for several weeks. It’ll be a pot pourri month of highlights, new doors opening, social fun, family togetherness as well as another stuck few days towards the 20th.  

The final ten days will be flamboyant, entertaining, sociable and attention-seeking as the mood shifts from Water to Fire and the Leo Sun and Mercury get a boost from go-ahead and lucky Jupiter in Aries.
