Pisces July

Welcome to July, Pisces! Neptune, your ruling planet, spends its first month retrograde in your sign, so if you’ve been feeling lost spiritually or unsatisfied sexually, things are about to take a turn for the better this July. Since Neptune is the Planet of Illusion and Fantasy, it’s often when it’s retrograde that you’re able to see elements of your life in the clearest light. That may explain why the first half of 2019 was a bit blurry and all over the place for your sensitive soul, and this may have reflected in your relationships and sexual endeavors. Finally, this month you’ll start to awaken to times when you may not have been as in tune with your body’s needs, and you’ll start to prioritize your sexual and emotional satisfaction, more than usual. The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on the 2nd of July starts a six-month cycle of you prioritizing sexual pleasure more in your life, and your lover(s) will thank you for this. But more importantly, you’ll thank yourself.

Venus, the Planet of Love, enters Cancer on the 3rd of the month, so for you it’ll be more challenging to just have casual sex with anyone, or hook up without an emotional connection. But since Mercury Retrograde begins on the 7th, there’s a chance that you won’t always be thinking in the most logical way, and if you’re horny this month you’ll feel everything more intensely than usual due to the Cancer energy. This may lead you to being drawn to people from your past, or letting them woo you as you indulge in their attention and affection. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to navigate your relationships, Pisces. The key is to know and to trust yourself, and take actions aligned with who you are at this moment. So if it feels right to you, and your mind, body and soul are aligned, then please surrender to the sexual bliss. However, if you feel conflicted, ashamed, insecure, triggered, or unsure, trust the signs your body, mind and soul are telling you, and focus on self-pleasure instead of settling for someone or using them to fill an emotional void…

The 16th, the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn takes place, activating your career and reputation sector, and rounding out a cycle that you’ve been in for the past 6 months. It’s possible that you’ll be thrown into the limelight around the middle of the month, and doing so will attract your fair share of attention from different suitors — whether you’re in a relationship or not. This may be sexually exciting, but you’ll be more focused on quality rather than quantity, and the Capricorn energy will help you take yourself and your lover(s) more seriously. This is a powerful time to have a clarifying conversation with those you’re engaged with sexually or those you want to be engaged with sexually. Don’t play mind games around this eclipse — be honest and lay it all out on the table. This honesty will serve as an immense turn-on for both parties, and the sex that comes after the conversation will be mind-blowing.

Once Leo Season begins on the 22nd of July, activating your health and work sector, you’ll be in the mood to look your best and feel your best. The work you put in during these next four weeks will have a direct impact on the sex you have. Because you’re consciously working on being your own lover, falling deeply in love with yourself, and turning yourself on first and foremost, the attraction that others feel for you will deepen significantly. You may at first shy away from this attention, but by the time Venus, the Planet of Love, joins the Sun and enters Leo on the 27th, followed by the magical Leo New Moon on the 31st, you will be all in and accept the abundance that life provides you. Have amazingly orgasmic sex to cap off July!
