Welcome to July, Taurus! Your sex life this month will be sensual, unpredictable, and full of sultry vibes. Venus, your ruling planet, enters Cancer on the 3rd of July, activating your communication sector. This takes place one day after the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer kicks off the month and makes you feel so much more vulnerable than you’re used to. You may find yourself feeling emotional when having sex or when connecting romantically with others. This month’s eclipses will be major heart-openers for you, but since you’re someone who tends to keep up a guard and protect yourself until you fully trust your lover, you may find it hard to really let yourself be seen sexually and emotionally at first. Once Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th though, you will start to notice some repetitive patterns in your relationships that must be nipped in the bud for you to truly feel sexually liberated.
Mercury Retrograde plus Venus in Cancer will have you seeking long-term sexual satisfaction, and not short-term flings or one-night stands. But at the same time, Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, is in your sign until 2026, and this causes you to constantly be feeling multiple sensations at once, and often changing your mind about what you want. This can feel frustrating for you since you’re used to consistency and logic, but you should not let this turn into sexual frustration. Use your moodiness and shifts to switch things up in bed with your partner(s). Surprise them just as much as you’re constantly surprising yourself with your eccentric needs. Let them know if you’re in a period of limbo or figuring yourself out, so that you can be transparent about where you are sexually and emotionally. The more open your communication this month, the better. Don’t expect people to read your mind, or to know what you want in bed. You’ll have to be more direct and show them what you want. Take the lead.
Mid-month, eclipse season continues with a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, activating your sector of adventure, expansion, and growth. These are themes you’ve been working on both in and out of the bedroom, especially when it comes to pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. Sex during this eclipse will therefore be out-of-this-world. You may let some of your darker fantasies be clear around this time. Whether that involves S&M, threesomes, polyamory, role-play, or whatever else speaks to you, you’ll have the confidence to speak up and let your partner(s) know.
It’s so important to be honest with yourself during this eclipse, Taurus. Even if you try to repress your truth or your desires, they will come out some way or another. But since a Lunar Eclipse also symbolizes endings, it’s possible that a relationship or situationship may end at this time, especially if you feel like you haven’t been able to grow or evolve together. Even if the sex is great, if there’s no depth or consistency to the relationship, you’ll feel prepared to let it go, even if it’s just temporarily…
Once Leo Season begins on the 22nd, your sector of roots and familiarity is activated. Leo energy tends to be fiery, passionate and ultra-confident, and you will start to emit these qualities as a lover. It will be wildly attractive to those you’re with, and they won’t be able to take their hands or eyes off of you. You’ll find yourself having wild fantasies about what’s possible, and once your ruler Venus enters Leo on the 27th, followed by the Leo New Moon on the 31st, you’ll realize that you were the only one standing in the way of making those fantasies come true… You’ll start to go after what (and who) you want with less fear, and you’ll end the month of July feeling sexually blissed out and rejuvenated.
