Welcome to Blo’s monthly hairoscopes (get it!!). We’re kicking things off this month with HBDs to all of our Cancer/Leo pals. Summer babies are the best babies, don’t you agree? We’re going to go into the nitty gritty of what July holds for everyone, but we’re answering your burning question right off the bat: YES, mercury is in retrograde from July 7th to 31st so expect the unexpected when it comes to technology, communication and all things interpersonal.
CANCER June 22 – July 22
Hey there Cancers. How are we doing this month? Feeling good? Well you should be because it’s your time, baby! This month is about self-reflection with Saturn beginning your new astrological year, but don’t forget to have a little fun too (you know what they say, crabs just wanna have fun!! They don’t say that, but let’s go with it.) Negotiations concerning money are in your future, so maybe it’s time to start rehearsing how you’ll ask your boss for that well deserved raise you’ve been thinking about. Nothing says happy birthday like entering a new tax bracket, right?
LEO July 23 – August 22
Hi Leos! Your moment in the spotlight is coming, don’t worry. For now, be a social butterfly this month! You’ll have an extra burst of energy with Mars transitioning your birth sign until August 10th, so channel that into a new hobby, throwing a dinner party or taking on a home renovation project. Stay in touch with your inner self towards the end of the month – the stars predict revelations when it comes to professional and personal relationships.
VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Virgos, you need no flattery from me – you know you’re the best sign because Beyoncé is a Virgo. Take time to meditate this month. I know you’ve got your Google calendar color coded and your school supplies all set up (even if the first day of school is a distant memory, who would pass up the chance to buy new post-its?!) but it’s important to relax and reflect on your goals for the coming year. Say what’s on your mind this month, secrets will come back to haunt you if you let them fester for too long. Enlightenment will come regarding romance this month, so sit tight on that double text: all will become clear, grasshopper.
LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Hi Libras! Bad news first: the planets are slowing you down this month. You may feel like going full steam ahead but try instead to take your time because it will pay off later. The good news: watch out for opportunities for awards or praise this month – seize them and you will be rewarded. Mercury will retrograde in Leo, your friendship house, so (lucky you!) this means you will run into someone from your past you’ve been missing. In fact, your social life will be buzzing in general, so make sure you don’t double book yourself—there’s enough of you to go around!
SCORPIO October 24 – November 22
Hey Scorpios! Venus is in your orbit this month which means anything money related will go in your favour – applying for a new apartment? Now is your time. This is also a good travel month for you so toss caution to the wind and use those last few vacation days for a mini-getaway. The new moon eclipse in Cancer and the lunar eclipse at the end of the month will do very good things for your energies this month, so remain open to all possibilities like adding a new hair accessory into the rotation or trying a fun colour for that vacation pedicure. The world is your oyster!
SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 21
Hi Sags! This month has a lot in store in the ~financial realms~. But don’t fret! It’s nothing major (you don’t have to return those mules you bought in the summer sales, thank god). In fact, the stars predict a windfall of the money variety coming your way. Don’t go blowing it all in one shot though. The lunar eclipse at the end of the month brings unexpected happenings, so put a little aside just in case! I know I’m giving you mixed messages, but the point is: treat yourself, but don’t buy that yacht until Mercury is out of retrograde.
CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Capricorns, how are you? July brings loooooots for you to unpack in your relationships: romantic, platonic and professional. The eclipse is happening in your seventh house, which means serious commitments of all kinds are on the table. Now’s the time to co-parent that puppy you’ve always wanted, timeshare that expensive handbag with your BFF or, get down on one knee. Eclipses are known for their ability to rock the boat, so stay confident in your decisions, your gut knows what’s right.
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Hello, my little water babies! This month is all about considering how you manage your time and how this relates to your goals. So, take a step back and evaluate – there’s always a time and place for a Netflix binge, but maybe split that time with something more productive, like updating your resume or writing the great American novel. However, you choose to stay busy this month, keep your eyes peeled for some big news to come to light around the 16th.
PISCES February 19 – March 20
Good morning/afternoon/night Pisces! I’ve got some big news for you this month: love is in the air and you’re about to be THRIVING. The eclipse in Cancer is going to deliver positive developments in all areas of romance so get ready for things to heat up. Be a little risky, tell your crush how you feel because the stars are in your favour this month. Don’t put too much trust in tech though – mercury is still retrograding which means in-person conversations are your best friend right now.
ARIES March 21 – April 19
Greetings spring chickens! July is a time of change for you. Between the eclipses and retrograde, there are some challenges to face, but let’s look on the positive side. Your living situation will come into question in the first half of the month but a sudden acquisition of extra cash will make up for any extra expenses (like that new coffee table you’ve been wanting). Not to be a broken record but it must be said: be wary of your electronics this month, they’re not on your side until mercury is out of retrograde.
TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Taurus, how the heck are you? This month is all about communication for you. Both eclipses this month will bring new opportunities for you to tell everyone (or just a potential new boss) how great you are, so *ahem* grab the bull by the horns and get yourself out there. Beware though: the retrograde spares no one, so make sure you double check you actually attached the attachment before sending that important email. Trust, it’ll save you the time of googling “how to unsend an email I already sent!!!!!!!”.
GEMINI May 21 – June 21
Hello, my twin star children! I hope you’re enjoying the dualities that summer brings (pros: Fun! Ice Cream! Beaches! cons: Blisters! Humidity! Sweat!). This month will be a little all over the place for you, with Mercury being your ruling planet, but also being in retrograde. My best advice to you is to take things slow. Explore new opportunities in the professional realm but don’t dive in just yet—be patient and you will reap the benefits once retrograde is over. Biding your time doesn’t have to mean isolating yourself—it’s your time Gemini, soak up the sun!
