July 2020 Monthly Horoscope for Gemini
July sheds a harsh spotlight on the drama surrounding you, Gemini. Despite the unflattering stage lights, you leave this month more amused than you enter it. Your adaptable and inquisitive nature means you adjust to changes quicker than most. And changes there will be! While you spend the month soul-searching, you might notice a destabilization of your friends’ or families’ lives. This prompts you to think more deeply about your goals in life and to reflect on your limitations. July is not so much about voicing your opinion as it is digesting the external stimuli around you. By the middle of the month, group dynamics are much clearer, and you see how you fit into the puzzle. Indeed, the Universe is guiding you to renew your confidence in yourself. Even if your quirks set you apart from the group, that only demonstrates how special you are. As it stands, July is slated to bring you the perspective you need to really shine.
The full moon lunar eclipse on the 5th brings a familiar shakeup to your eighth house. Yes, it’s likely you’ve dealt with this exact sort of thing at least a few times since January of 2019. You might be reminded of a heavy debt or toxic entanglement, or you may find that your partner is yet again having money problems. In your cards, this week may be a crisis or even a close call with death himself. Even more likely, you’ll be guided to reflect on the ultimate passage of life or another taboo topic. It may be that someone close to you is experiencing some sort of death or revealing their shadow side.
Whatever the case, you’re well overdue for a psychological purging. Take this time to practice some soul-searching. You’ll be transforming your darkest fears into productive action in no time!
In fact, Saturn’s retrograde in Capricorn will be helping you access these fears for at least the next few months. They’re nothing you haven’t seen before, but you’re likely to feel some frustration. After all, it's no fun coming face-to-face with issues you thought you’d already resolved. The retrograde of your planetary ruler Mercury in your second house doesn't help either. For the first half of the month, you’re not clear about how you'd like to see yourself – much less how you'd like others to see you.
During these first couple weeks, repairs and renovations may be necessary. This could mean revamping your home, making amends with family, or trying out a new hairstyle.
You will need to reallocate emotional and material resources. Remember that less can be more sometimes! Until July 12th, expect shortages and delays, and keep an eye on your electronics. You'll also want to triple-check warranty policies before making any technological purchases.
From the 11th through September, exercise a little forgiveness in your friend groups. The energy of Chiron, the Wounded Healer, stations retrograde in your 11th house of social networks to show you what needs resolution. If you act with integrity, this will help you heal longstanding identity wounds.
You may want to ask yourself if you are blaming others for your fear of not fitting in? It’s likely you’ve been conforming to your assumptions about what others’ expectations are and have lost a part of yourself as a result.
Matters of love are complicated in July. A love interest is left reeling by the 5th's eclipse, and you’re inclined to feel their actions go against your needs. While you struggle to communicate at first, you should have a better grasp on your words by the 12th. This may not be much help though as you’ll find a quick tongue is as dangerous as a paralyzed one. Go with the flow instead of obsessing over control, and love will be much easier for you both next month.
There’s only one word to describe the 12th through the 20th, and it’s drama. Luckily enough, you’re at a point where you can kick back and enjoy watching the show. Rather than interrupting with your own observation, you’re apt to study the words coming out of your coworkers’ and family member’s mouths.
Despite the theatrical behavior of your family, the stars smile upon your finances this month. Particularly after the 12th, money-making ventures are auspicious. If we’re being honest though, you’ll need to check your spending habits on the 20th. You’re likely to spend significantly on yourself and your personal appearance now. Indulging on food, pampering, and entertainment – your innocent pleasures – it fine and dandy, but you’ll eventually need to balance the checkbooks.
However, money is the last thing on your mind when the sun enters Leo and your third house of communication on the 22nd. As the month ends, you feel like this is the time to spread your wings and emerge as a butterfly. For the first time all July, you feel like your Gemini self, and you enter August with even more powerful intellectual skills than before.
