Welcome to July, Scorpio! Your ruling planet Mars shifts out of Cancer and enters Leo for the entire month, so you’re about to notice yourself getting significantly more confident, and therefore significantly more attention too. During Mars’ stay in Cancer last month, you couldn’t escape your emotions, and were often overwhelmed by them. It made it challenging to make sexual and romantic decisions from a place of clarity. This month, while there are still many astrological transits that will lead to your love life surprising you, you’re ultimately going to be more sure of yourself, who you want, and how you’ll commit to getting it.
It’s still Cancer Season ‘til the 22nd, there’s a powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer on the 2nd, and Venus, the Planet of Love, enters Cancer on the 3rd. It’s about to get real wet around here, and you’ll be a prime reason for all of that. You’ll be feeling yourself in this water sign element, but Mars in Leo will help your kinky and fearless side emerge in bed and in love. You need to take the lead and not be afraid to call the shots — your partner(s) will be turned on by your more aggressive, go-getter attitude. You’re one of the most sexually insatiable signs of the zodiac, and you can’t expect people to read your mind and know what you want in bed.
Since Mercury will be retrograde on the 7th of July, you’ll especially have to be clear about your needs, your desires, your turn-ons and turn-offs. Mercury is in Leo, so you’ll want to make sure you’re not being too selfish sexually and that you’re taking your lover(s) needs into account too… Don’t let the retrograde stop you from speaking what’s on your mind. Just be open to hearing what others have to say, even if it sometimes makes you uncomfortable. They may express insecurities, or highlight your own insecurities during the retrograde. Once you learn to listen without being defensive or reactive, the bond between you deepens, and Mercury Retrograde can actually make you closer than ever, leading to an unforgettable sexual experience.
The Capricorn eclipse on the 16th of July activates your communication sector, and you’ll notice that the work you’ve been putting in to be more vulnerable and less afraid in your relationships will pay off around this eclipse. Think back to where you were six months ago, around the beginning of 2019, when we experienced the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Chances are, you were seeking to create greater boundaries in love, while simultaneously working on consciously letting down your guard more and trusting that people have your best interests at heart. Many Scorpios will have manifested relationships or connections with people who have proved that they care deeply for Scorpio, and not only in a sexual or physical way. If you have a habit of self-sabotaging relationships just when things start to get real, you’ll be ready to release that toxic pattern with this eclipse. You’ll be able to admit your own triggers or past hurts, but not be defined by them.
Sexually, this eclipse allows you to be clear about what you do and don’t except in sex, and what you do and don’t crave. You’ll be honest about double standards that you have in love and sex, such as perhaps wanting to feel free as a lover, while also being one of the most possessive lovers out there. The truth will set you free, Scorpio. Chances are, your lover(s) or partner(s) will actually be more turned on by you when you reveal what you previously kept hidden. So go ahead, give it a try…
Once Leo Season begins on the 22nd, followed by Venus’ shift into Leo on the 27th, you’ll most likely experience a professional breakthrough that will catapult you and your reputation to new heights. Whomever you’re sexually or emotionally involved with will have to be ready for their life to transform along with yours — but only if you want them to come along for the ride. It’s time to be clear about whose sexual and emotional energy is meant to be with you on your evolutionary journey. Once you are, the amount of sexual pleasure you’ll experience will astound you, because you will have been radically honest with yourself. Your entire life will feel like an explosion of juicy goodness.
