Ladies and Gentlemen, Heroes and Heroines, your attention please. Not only is this the month that the land of the brave and the free celebrates its birthday... it's a month in a decade... or more! Up on the great stage of the sky, Saturn and Uranus have stepped back from their recent 'credit crunch inducing' opposition. Their extra-terrestrial tussle is paused, for now. They have respectfully separated to allow all influence to go to Jupiter's rare conjunction with Neptune. That's a blessing for every visionary, every poet and every truly kind and hopeful soul. If ever magic could happen on Earth, it can happen now.
It is wrong to assume that you are being selfless if you do what someone else wants you to do and selfish if you do only what appeals to you. It's possible to be selfish for selfless reasons... and the other way round. If you don't honour your own priorities, attempt to identify and meet your own needs, and generally put yourself in a position of greater comfort, you lose your ability to offer others the unique insight that you can supply only when you're strong. What those all around you need from you this coming month, is a strength that only you can supply. Be strong... and you'll be successful!
The need to sort something out decisively is increasing. But what are you going to do? It is not as if you are dealing with circumstances that are fully under your own control. There are factors that just will not respond to any attempt you make to influence them. Worse, there are factors that you simply do not understand. Those baffling factors most urgently require your attention. Though you are reluctant to look at a situation that only makes you feel dizzy, you MUST focus on it. Go past your resentment. And your fear. Think harder. Solve the mystery. Then, in July, you really will have power.

Let it go. Put it down. Fold it up. Tidy it away. Leave it alone. Forget about it. Do something else instead. Focus your attention elsewhere. Anywhere. It hardly matters. But allow some kind of a distraction to enter your life. This is the only way in which you are going to attain a sense of perspective. Right now, that's what you need more than anything else. You are too close to a sensitive situation. Because you don't have objectivity, you are dwelling on details which are confusing. Mars in your sign brings a break from all that in July. Become clear - and then you'll have a real victory!

There are some experiences that we have no option other than to repeat. Breakfast, for example, is very much a ritual. Same tea, same toast, same time of day. A hundred other factors will arise, today, much as they did yesterday or the day before. This is not just a tolerable state of affairs, it's a desirable one. When, though, we find ourselves acting out the same drama, over and over again, something HAS to change. Doesn't it? Mercury in your sign, this July, brings the insight with which to break a bad habit. All you require is the willingness to innovate and the courage to embrace change.

Be careful, please. You have recently redefined a boundary. You now feel able to go further and accomplish more than previously seemed possible. You are not mistaken about any of this. It's perfectly fine to feel excited and inspired. You must, though, remain aware of some practical factors. You have to walk before you can run. Yet it seems that you now have a chance to make a rapid, dramatic move. Whether or not you feel ready to do this, you should hold back until the rare, mid-month conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune in your opposite sign. Your opportunities will be better then.

It is not just politicians and bankers who will say almost anything, to anyone, if it seems to suit their purpose. Among the world's great romantics too, a similar flexibility with regard to the truth is often found. Poets will say almost anything as long as it sounds evocative. Artists will paint almost anything as long as they can express some emotion. Lovers will promise almost anything as long as it gets them loved. Watch what you say (and what you allow yourself to be told) in July. Or, perhaps more relevantly, watch what you allow yourself to truly believe. As long as you're realistic you'll be fine.

Why do people talk about falling in love? Because, in such a state, it's about the only thing you can do. You can't run, you can't walk and there's no way, in any meaningful relationship, that you'll ever be able to stand still. Love is about letting go. Creativity, too, is about allowing yourself to be swept away by some great idea. There's tension in the air in July. Most of it, though, is linked to a reluctance to 'fall' - not necessarily in love, but in surrender to a big possibility! You feel as if you ought to stay in control. Get out of the driving seat. Take the passenger seat for a while. You won't fall; you'll fly.
Sometimes, we really don't feel like being nice. We can see a thousand reasons to resent the attitude of a particular person or object to the situation in which we find ourselves. We can decide that there's really no point in making an effort or even striving to set an example. It's especially easy to reach a conclusion when it seems as if our attempts to be kind, forgiving and friendly, have somehow backfired or caused us to be taken advantage of. In July, no matter why you may feel tempted to nurture a negative emotion, you'll benefit far more from being positive. Be your best and you'll get what's best!

You like to question convention and challenge the assumptions by which most people lead their lives. At the same time, there's a part of you that likes to play it safe. You can be overly respectful of some rules and regulations at the same time as you are blatantly defying others. Now, you face a challenge. It seems as if you are being backed into a corner - but actually, you have every opportunity to break free, provided you are brave enough to alter an ingrained behaviour pattern. July's conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune says anything's possible now, if you're inspired and imaginative!

This is real life, not Hollywood. There's always a chance something truly magical will transform your life in an instant. There remains, though, a much greater likelihood of continuation and repetition. Most probably, what's happening today will be happening tomorrow. And next week. And so on. Is this, then, why we should train ourselves to take pleasure in the little things? Should we learn to appreciate the small because we fear we'll never encounter the big? Most certainly not. July brings a seemingly tiny matter to be truly amazed by and a gigantic gift, too. Get ready to be uplifted.

You don't have to invent a better mousetrap. You just need to work out where all the mice in your life are coming from! Soon, you'll get a little extra insight into something that is baffling you. Put aside fear and self-doubt and you will soon gain this understanding. Actually, you already have it. It is just that you do not trust it. You suspect your judgement is flawed or that your perspective is biased. So what? That doesn't mean you are missing every point. In July, a potent cosmic conjunction occurs in your sign. Listen to what your intuition is trying so hard to tell you and stop trying to argue with it.

There are times when you can achieve a great deal. You merely have to look at people and they start offering to do your bidding. Sometimes, they even read your mind and realise what you need without you even having to ask. Then there are the occasions when you may as well be speaking Swahili for all the impact you are having. Nothing works as it should. It all seems almost unbelievably silly. Jupiter's conjunction to Neptune, in July, turns up the contrast and magnifies every issue. You've got incredible power to be heard and to inspire others - if you are wise and can see beyond whatever is worrying you.
