Power up your pop-up tent and prepare for a powerful communion under your piece of the sky, astro babes. July’s cosmic invitations are fierce and firm — a chance to create solid seashells and tuck into a trust that’s timeless, tender, and tailored to your own shifting tides.
The landscape is supplely shaped by the smooth claws of crustacean Cancer. The squid inky indigo of the cosmic color wheel, Cancer represents our soul’s midnight — a walkabout with the wildness that lives inside each and every one of us. A descent to the kitchen for nocturnal snacks, July asks us to greet our bone-deep needs in the after hours glow with an extra helping of cookies and milk.
Start by taking simple, strong stock of your star parlor. Where are you right now? What pulls and currents run beneath the surface of your skin? What are the contours of your own heart? Is it plush and pliable — ready for a summertime bouncy castle celebration? Is it another kind of castle, complete with vine-covered walls and majestic moats? Self-trust begins by just listening.
So wherever you find yourself, and with whatever you’ve got, hold close and create the container that best fits your touchy feelings. And back yourself like never before — emboldened by the belief in your very own biofeedback.
Read on for your sign’s July trust fall and learn to lean back into the boundless bounty of self-belief.
CANCER OR CANCER RISING
June was fit for falling back into your groove — finding support by doing what you do best. July’s invitations turn more expansive, asking you to open towards whatever exists at the edge of your known world. What territory lies beyond the electrical fence? Rather than wild leaps, just begin by perusing the creatures that inhabit the biosphere that exists beyond. The behavioral bits and bobs that might feel like a “reach.” Cause what feels out of reach is coming for you, sweet crustacean.
Trust Fall: Question the Limits. Notice the lines in your life and begin to question whether the containment they create feels rock-solid or rock-slide stifling.
LEO OR LEO RISING
June found you getting wider, little love cat, as you practiced partaking of your greatness by letting your presence just be felt instead of forced. July’s energies ask for you to increase your diameter even more by dissolving into stardust —probing your own natural mysteries like you were wandering a national park. Don’t stop at the signposts. Don’t settle for the usual explanations. Ask bigger questions, Leo. And learn to live in the space just before the solid answers.
Trust Fall: Embrace the What Ifs. While asking “what if” can sometimes lead us down the anxiety rabbit hole, let the unknowns become your gateway to surprise endings instead.
VIRGO OR VIRGO RISING
June was your bespoke blowout — a chance to celebrate whatever pinnacle you’d reached. With the roller coaster drop and the new crush heart flip, July now wants you to embrace the art of exhilaration. Notice the edge between excitement and anxiety, and when what you think is the latter is actually the former. Nervous energy that you scramble to “manage” can sometimes feel fraying; but right now, letting your body flood with pure sensation is your golden ticket to a fun-loving freedom you might never have felt before.
Trust Fall: Don’t Fear the Feels. Whatever amped up reaction is pulsing through your system wants you to lean in and let it live.
LIBRA OR LIBRA RISING
June was a self-led mission that tasked you with claiming the right to choose for yourself. Now, July wants you to embrace your new role as cosmic CEO, planting seeds of consciousness about your own competence. Notice when you start to craft complex networks of worry around people or projects, becoming small in the face of what you feel is the bigger and badder-ass weather pattern that’s here to make or destroy you. Flex your force, Libra, and learn to harness the very wind you believe is here to wipe you out.
Trust Fall: Exercise Authority. Whether it’s divining what’s for dinner, or pulling a power move of more epic proportions, July is made for making good on your majesty.
SCORPIO OR SCORPIO RISING
June was your bold bonfire of being-ness, as you learned to swap the status quo for something more scintillating. And now July invites you to settle in by the fireside and toast a few marshmallows. Take this month to take stock, checking in with your “season” of life. You’ve got the instincts of every animal in the kingdom and then some, baby beast. Read your inner landscape to learn when it’s time to get low and when it’s high time for pouncing.
Trust Fall: Know Your Gut. Learn the difference between natural instincts and unnecessary vigilance by noticing which knowings ask you to follow their lead rather than fighting against.
SAGITTARIUS OR SAGITTARIUS RISING
June opened your curiosity circuits — asking you to be “down” to learn through looseness. And now this month wants you to hone that power of porosity, noticing how your open and shut valves function. Are you a wide pair of French doors right now? A carefully coiled pasta sieve? What exactly are and aren’t you available for? Know that you have every right to self-regulate in whatever manner you see fit, choosing who and what comes in and out through the entrance to your VIP room.
Trust Fall: Mark Your Territory. Whether it’s endless fields of epic flowers or a one-room beach bungalow with a lock and key, build self-belief by knowing your boundaries.
CAPRICORN OR CAPRICORN RISING
June was fit for hunkering down and dealing with whatever was in your hands. Now, July invites you to loosen up and let flow, following the force of your feelings wherever they lead. Notice how each sensation arises, abides, and departs —marveling at the mood ring magic that is you. You are no different than all of life: born and built to evolve. You are allowed to change, Cappy. Let it move and groove, knowing that every perceived loss uncovers an unexpected find.
Trust Fall: Embrace Change. Know that whatever feelings you have about the shifts in your life are perfect in their humanness. Whether railing against or relishing, you’re right on time.
AQUARIUS OR AQUARIUS RISING
June was a sharing and caring fest, made for melting any hardness in your well-traveled heart. And July wants you to transform these micro-melties into the grounds for more major landslides, noticing where you can let the momentum build and amplify around smaller shifts. A month for putting your love money where your precious mouth is, the Universe wants you to support your hopes and dreams with clear action. Show it to grow it — choosing differently to catalyze change.
Trust Fall: Prove It. Whatever you want wants to know that you want it. So back up the desire with your feet firmly in the dirt.
PISCES OR PISCES RISING
June was made for following the drum beats, as you came home to your essential source. Now, July wants you to get frisky and nimble, partying in life’s funhouse of perceived problems and potential solutions. Rather than stuck in a rote channel of rinse and repeat, this month invites you to get lighter and more limber, marveling at all the pieces of your wondrous energetic bod you haven’t even begun to tap. Sport a wig. Invent a new name. Change your color, sweet chameleon — capitalizing on whatever feels most carefree.
Trust Fall: Dare to Play. Letting yourself imagine new pathways and alternate endings lets life know that you’re here, you’re alive, and you’re absolutely still game.
ARIES OR ARIES RISING
June was an inside job — a chance to befriend your infinite wisdom. And now, it’s high tide to slip away from the spoon of what doesn’t feel good, like a babe pushing against peas in favor of pudding. Start with the radical notion that you are lovable, no matter what. Whether or not you “mess up” or “make right” matters not at this moment. The people and endeavors that aren’t here for your humanness have just got to go. Behold yourself, honey bundle. And hold fast to what wants to hold you back.
Trust Fall: Choose Ease. A month for breaking ranks with undue friction, July is here to remind you that soul evolution doesn’t always have to hurt.
TAURUS OR TAURUS RISING
June was your organic camouflage, Taurus, asking you to slip smoothly inside life situations and shift them from the inside out. July furthers this exercise in the art of impact, and each gorgeous gesture you adopt has ripple effects right now. A touch on someone’s shoulder. A wink and a nod timed just right. This month invites you to be hands-on, but without any need to hold fast. Let projects and partnerships pass through you like you’re a psychic medium, colored by your channel and all the more beauteous for it.
Trust Fall: Touch Lightly. Fund lasting self-belief by choosing gentle gestures over power pushes.
GEMINI OR GEMINI RISING
June was shaped by subtle clues and secret messages, as you reveled in signs of life by participating and witnessing. July’s messages are now able to reach you strong and clear, and the statement is simple: Enough Now. Whatever’s been ailing you. Whatever’s been running on fumes. Wherever the termite ghosts are compromising your right to lay a lasting foundation. Give it up and let it go in the name of your goddess-given gorgeousness. And let your One-Life-To-Live soap opera come squeaky clean and drama-free.
Trust Fall: Call it Quits. July’s energies ask you to stand firm in your force, saying no to what needs to hear it, if need be.
