The constellation is the Scorpion is magnificent. It makes it worthwhile to be outside. If you are out late enough, or early the next day, you will see Jupiter which appears as the brightest star in the east.

For all you early birds

This is the best time as Jupiter and Venus are the brightest stars in the sky. Jupiter is high overhead and Venus is rising in the east.

July 2009 Sun Sign Forecast July 3, 2009

Aries 20 march – 19th April

This is a brilliant month for speaking what’s on your mind and Venus will help you put it in a cooperative harmonious manner; especially with a sibling or a neighbor. The Sun is causing you to be focused on your home and family zone, so you don’t want to be distracted by your working life. But guess what; you will be. The trick is to stay self-disciplined and pay attention to rules and regulations at work. A friend, or group, may inspire you with a brilliant and, as yet, unrealistic idea. 


Taurus  20th April – 20th May 

A touch of luck from Lady Venus is coming your way. She travels with Mars who brings in the element of risk. Just don’t lose a big fortune to make a small one. The benefits could actually be new and vibrant knowledge and realizations that the Full Moon is illuminating. Thus it is time to use what you have been learning and share and communicate that knowledge with others; especially those in your family. A situation at work with either be fantastic for you, or pass you by. I suggest that you nurture its potential.


Gemini 21st May – 20th June

This month has loads of potential as you have harmonious Venus and active Mars entering your sign. You are able to attract people and opportunities. And even your financial situation is shining. Money that should be yours can be returned easily under this transit so put your hand out; and ask! Communication can flow easily and openly. The only down side is you can be easily distracted by too much information to see the ones with opportunities. So get out there and enjoy life and grab it with both hands!


Cancer 21st June to 22nd July

Don’t panic. There come a time in everyone’s life that they feel exposed and insecure. As a Cancer symbolized by the Crab it simply means that now you are growing out of your old cramped shell, into a roomier and more rewarding new one. This environment will help you lift your eyes and change the way you see life.  It also has the potential to strip away assumptions and help you see the truth about the people you associate with.  An issue over someone else’s money has the potential to confuse you.


Leo 23rd July – 22nd August 

Venus and Mars make for a lively month with groups of people and social networks. Is there a common goal? Your role is to first stay in the background, then stand up and take the initiative. Other people are going to have had a pie-in-the-sky idea that needs too much time/effort to make it workable.   The Full Moon lights up your zone of health and responsibility. This means you are to accept responsibility when it comes, and that you pay attention to your diet, exercise or maintain a simple routine that keeps everything smooth.


Virgo 23rd August – 22nd September 

There will be a celebration or happy event or a touch of luck coming your way. Let’s hope you get all three! Your zone of work or your role in the public eye is activated as Venus and Mars represent the introduction of busy and pleasing opportunities. If you have been looking inward and downward, then your will be called to look up and out at the big picture. What are your overall goals or motivations? It’s time to ponder on why you believe, behave and feel the way you do.


Libra 23rd September – 22nd October

Your community position and role in your work place becomes very important this month. The shining sun and the planet of communication suggest that you have important words that need to be said. Do you need to be the spokesperson, or is it time to stand up and speak? This is the time that your words will be taken seriously. On the other hand, you will feel the need to have a short break or plan a holiday. The Full Moon is shining on your home zone so expect to feel emotional about family issues.


Scorpio 23rd October – 21st November

Your shared asset or money zone is in the spotlight this month. This time it looks like the situation can be resolved as Venus is smiling upon you in this area. There is certainly some action you must take, especially if you are owed money. There will also be a focus on your work zone so be aware that people are paying attention to what you do. Even if you don’t actually work, you can have an impact on the immediate neighborhood. Although I would delay issues to do with family for a while.


Sagittarius  22nd November – 21st December

Lucky you! with Venus bringing people and benefits to your zone of relationships. Mars is also there and inspires you to take the initiative. This is not a superficial relationship, but a great time to become more involved on a deeper level with those you love.  Everything you value and what you share with another, in love or in business, is also in the spotlight. Do you value the same things? Is there agreement on money issues? Confusion may surround an important decision. You don’t yet have all the facts; so wait a while.


Capricorn 22nd December – 19th January

The Full Moon in Capricorn illuminates what you must do to take the initiative for your own choices. Be the “driver” of your life; don’t be driven. An important decision becomes easier and the planet of communication is helping you connect to the important people in your life. Thus you can help them understand your reasons, or show them the real motives behind their actions. This month is perfect for habits that will improve your life such as diet and exercise. New people, or even a new pet, are likely to come into your life. 


Aquarius 20th January – 18th February

You are caught in a dilemma this month. Part of you will be immersed in the world of responsibilities, service and considering other peoples needs. While the other part wants to be free to express yourself, to play and to be creative. Therefore you have two choices. The first is to tie yourself up in knots and get nowhere. The second is to allow each impulse to take turns. So be duty-bound and responsible one day, then allow the inner child out to play the next; especially as Venus smiles upon your love life!


Pisces 198th February – 20th March

Your fun and friendships zones are highlighted this month, so make merry with social gatherings, celebrations and connecting with friends. The creative Pisceans will experience a rush of inspirational energy and imaginative ideas.  Expect to be unclear about what to do. Now is the time to “create and experience” life, although you will want to find some quiet peace and solitude to recharge your batteries amidst the hurly burly. You may also be thinking about improving your actual home, or is it your emotional supports that need improving?
