Aries ♈ July 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While 1st July is always the first day of the second half of each year and symbolically this can draw a line in the sand but never has this been so literal and especially for you. It was 48 hours earlier that Mars, your ruling planet returned to Aries to fuel your passions, drive and competitive spirit but also to begin a new Mars cycle. Mars will usually spend six weeks back in Aries and this is always an empowered point in his 22 month cycle so just having him return just as you are poised into the second half of the year is an advantage and a case of perfect timing. If you ever wanted to put the first half of the year behind you and start again, this is your chance.

However, at most this should get you through to mid August when this effect would wear off and rather than impacting the whole second half of the year this would be a good start. However, this is not what will happen and Mars really will impact the whole second half of the year. That is because while Mars returned on 28th June he won’t leave until 7th January 2021, with his longest visit in 32 years dominating the whole second half of the year and colouring all your experiences. Having Mars in Aries is different from having him in any other area of your chart, where his passions, drive and competitive spirit are contained to that one specific area.

In Aries, Mars influence will spread to every corner of your life. This will manifest as a surge in your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit as Saturn retrogrades back to join up with Jupiter and Pluto again in your career sector. Over the course of the month, this will make its way into your romantic and creative passions and in fact every area of your life that you are able to get passionate about. At the start of the month Mars one of just three planets in the solar system in direct motion, giving you the drive to push forward but also make the most of the multiple doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential.

LoveAries July 2020 Love Horoscope

While July will always bring us into the second half of any year this year, this really will feel like a new energy. Venus, who has been in your communication sector since early April is finally back in direct motion and leaving early next month, is even more determined to ensure the communication lines are open. After six weeks in retrograde motion, Venus has spent enough time giving the past and unsaid words a voice and is once again looking to the future. Venus will continue to give your heart and your relationships a voice but is no longer fixated on the past. This comes as Juno is also now in direct motion in your relationship sector.

The other thing that sets July apart is that there is finally some planetary activity on the romantic front. Both Venus and Mercury have been held back by retrograde phases, with Mercury not returning to your romantic sector until August and Venus not returning until September. However, as the Sun has a timetable that he will never deviate from, he will return to your romantic sector on schedule on 22nd July. This is the point in any year when the solar spotlight will move onto matters of the heart and all things romantic. Knowing that Mercury will return next month and Venus the month after, means that what the Sun begins now will have longevity.

As this is an important month across the communication, romantic and relationship fronts, the Moon’s return to each are important. The Moon will make its last visit to your communication sector before Venus leaves from 16th July to 18th July and its last visit to your relationship sector from 25th July to 27th July. In both cases, the Moon will work with Venus to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from 21st July to 23rd July, with romantically charged lunar vibes in play when the Sun returns on 22nd July.

MoneyAries July 2020 Money Horoscope

While it is business as usual and a fairly quiet point in this financial year this is exactly what you need. There has been no planetary activity in your financial sector, the side of the financial fence that is focused on what you do with and how you manage the money you have since Mars left in the New Year and there will be none until the Sun returns in October. It is the Moon’s monthly visits that offer a chance to check in and with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled take care of any housekeeping or seize opportunities. The Moon will begin the month in your financial sector, allowing you to begin with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go.

The Moon will come full circle, returning to your financial sector from 27th July to 29th July, with an opportunity to once again check in. For the majority of the month, the focus is more on the income side of the fence, as it will be for the majority of the year. Unlike your financial sector, where once the faster planets move on there is no ongoing planetary activity, Uranus is in the first full year of a seven year visit to your income sector. Not leaving until 2026, even though the last of the faster moving planets left in May, Uranus is able to keep the momentum going and keep things moving in a lucrative direction.

While Uranus can’t make direct contact with the planets in your career sector he will benefit from them being there, with the Moon helping to build a bridge. In the lead up to an eclipsing Full Moon in your career sector on 5th July the Moon’s friendly aspect to Uranus could make this a trigger for both income and professional potential. Likewise, when the Moon moves through your income sector from 14th July to 16th July, as well as sharpening your nose for money and acting as a trigger, it will form a friendly aspect to all three planets in your career sector. Your income potential will also benefit from new planetary activity on the job front next month.

CareerAries July 2020 Career Horoscope

Without any planetary activity in your work sector since the middle months of 2019 and both planets in your career sector in retrograde motion, this is a quiet point of your professional year and purposely so. Pluto, the planet of change and revolution has been in retrograde motion in your work sector since April and Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion since May. It was in April that they aligned for the first time in our lifetime but they have moved back into an alignment that will peak on 1st July and the timing couldn’t be better.

The planets of luck and change are move focused on missed opportunities and untapped professional potential and they are once again in lockstep. They manage to cement this union just before Saturn retrogrades back into your work sector on 2nd July, to finish what he began back in 2017. Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos and he will focus more on unfinished business. While Jupiter and Pluto are more likely to hand you untapped professional potential on a plate, Saturn will demand that you work for them. The focus is still on the past but this month there is a real chance to take your power back.

With the Sun and Mercury not returning to open new doors on the job front until later next month and Venus not returning to exploit this until September, there is time first to get your professional ducks in a row. With Jupiter and Saturn both leaving in December but the push to bring things home not starting until they start turning direct in September, there is a chance to first retrace your steps. The Moon will bring a chance to check in when it moves through from 4th July to 6th July with an eclipsing Full Moon on 5th July potentially the trigger for untapped professional potential.
