Astrology Transits July 2024 – Friends and Family (what to expect in July 2024

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” — Richard Bach

July opens with the Sun in Cancer. The sign of Cancer relates to family, ancestors and your nurturing instincts. Honor and nurture your family now, whether it is your birth family or the family you have gathered close to you because they have your back and your heart.


Saturn began its yearly retrograde motion on June 30 at 19 degrees Pisces and will move backwards until November 17. Your projects may seem to slow down during this time giving you a chance to revise what is not working. Though progress may not be as visible during the summer, Saturn is still doing its work of grounding, structuring and solidifying. You would be wise to follow Saturn’s lead.


Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces. on July 3 and will remain in retrograde motion until December 9. Retrograde Neptune calls for deep reflection on the nature of realty versus the ability to dream and intuit a new, kinder reality. Use this time to tune into your subconscious and to meditate on your deepest desires. Saturn and Neptune both retrograde in the sign of Pisces are custom designed to help you dream your dreams and to then manifest them in a realistic way.


July promises to be an exciting month with Mars and Uranus conjunct on July 15 and Mars entering Gemini on July 20. Busy, busy, busy and lots of short trips and quick conversations are on tap with Mars in Gemini.


July 2-3: Mercury Enters Leo.


July 5: New Moon at 14 Degrees Cancer at 5:57 pm EST. Mars Sextile Saturn at 19 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. The Cancer New Moon focuses the solar and lunar energy in the sign of Cancer. Its time to re-evaluate your connection to home, ancestors and family. Mars sextile Saturn is a harmonious aspect that energizes, yet restrains. It is an excellent time to nurture (Cancer) your family, friends, garden or the wildlife around you, especially if you are feeling depressed or more emotional than usual. Your energy is high, but not combustible, as is true in some Mars’ transits.

July 10: Sun Trine Saturn at 19 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. Sun trine Saturn is one of the very best aspects for steady accomplishment. The Sun brings energy and Saturn supplies the hard work and practical “stick-to-it” attitude. Any tasks relating to water are especially favored due to the Sun and Saturn both being in water signs.


July 11: Venus Trine Neptune at 29 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. Venus Enters Leo. Venus Opposition Pluto at 1 Degree/Leo/Aquarius. Venus trine Neptune is dramatically different than yesterday’s energy. When Venus is Trine Neptune there is a dreamy, diffused quality and the need for accomplishment flies out the window, though Venus opposition Pluto may bring an unwelcome intensity to your personal relationships. This is a good time to let life flow and to refrain from power struggles with those close to you. Venus enters Leo at the end of the day bringing a spark of expressive and creative energy. Push your comfort zone and put yourself front and center during Venus’ transit of Leo until August 4.


July 14: Venus Sesiquiquadrate Saturn at 3 Degrees Leo; Saturn at 19 Degrees Pisces. The sesiquiquadrate aspect is an aspect of irritation that often indicates that choices and decisions need to be made. Ask yourself: What am I ignoring? What actions need to be taken that I have been putting off? Saturn in Pisces can bring a certain amount of confusion.


July 15: Sun Square Chiron at at 23 Degrees Cancer/Aries. Mercury Quincunx Saturn at 4 Degrees Leo/Pisces. Mars Conjunct Uranus at 26 Degrees Taurus. Challenging but, potentially, very freeing vibes abound now. Sun square Chiron spotlights cosmic energy custom-made to bring forth old wounds for healing. Mercury quincunx Saturn says that an adjustment needs to be made in your habitual thought patterns. Have you gotten into the habit of negative thinking?

Mars conjunct Uranus brings renewed energy to the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction that we experienced earlier this year. Mars brings the energy and Uranus brings the tension, electricity and excitement! Their combined energy can bring accidents and political unrest. The antidote to Jupiter/Uranus’ over stimulation is to slow down and practice mindfulness. Doing so, releases the positive attributes of this aspect – freeing you from ruts and outdated ways of thinking and living.


July 18: Sun Sextile Uranus at 26 Degrees Cancer/Taurus. The Sun is your very essence, while Uranus brings sudden change, rebellion and a desire for independence and revolution. Sun sextile Uranus adds to the vibrations of Mars conjunct Uranus discussed above, but with a more mellow, positive flavor.


July 20: Mars Sextile Neptune at 29 Degrees Taurus/Pisces. Mars Enters Gemini. In the early part of the day, you may feel like withdrawing from the world to meditate or to take a nature walk. When Mars enters Gemini in late afternoon you will want to socialize, talk (maybe too much) and kick ideas back and forth with another person.


July 21:  Full Moon at 29 Degrees Capricorn at 6:16 AM EDT. 

Sun Trine Neptune at 29 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. 

Jupiter Square Uranus at 26 Degrees Leo/Taurus. 

Venus Sextile Jupiter at 12 Degrees Leo/Gemini. 

Mars Trine Pluto at Zero Degrees Gemini/Aquarius. 


The Capricorn Full Moon would normally be a very grounded, uneventful time. However, this Capricorn full Moon is like a summer picnic. Sun trine Neptune adds an emotional, mysterious overlay, with maybe a raindrop (or teardrop) or two. Jupiter square Uranus brings a sense of optimism coupled with a dash of rebellion. Venus sextile Jupiter brings love and romance. Finally, Mars trine Pluto brings the drama and possibly fraught conversation (both Mars and Pluto in air signs). There is something here for everyone. Just stay grounded and enjoy what is going on around you.

July 22: Sun Enters Leo at 3:44 am EDT.  Social activities, fun, creativity and “strutting your stuff” are part of the picture when the Sun is in Leo until August 23. Take some time to give yourself an “atta girl” or “atta boy” pat on the back.


July 23: Sun Opposition Pluto at Zero Degrees Leo/Aquarius. Venus at 14 Degrees Leo Sesiquiquadrate Neptune at 29 Degrees Pisces. Sun opposition Pluto may lead to power struggles with others, especially authority figures. The Sun in Leo wants attention and Pluto in Aquarius doesn’t easily give you that. In addition, Venus in a harsh aspect to Neptune confuses the issue. Its best to back off from any confrontations or disgruntled feelings until this short-lived aspect sorts itself out in a few days.


July 25: Mercury Enters Virgo at 6:41 PM. When Mercury is in Virgo, we feel a need to interpret the world through an orderly thought process. Mercury in Virgo is good for organizing, categorizing, cleaning, and planning. This would be a good time to make business or domestic plans, to review your health and nutrition or to begin a new class or study.


July 31: Venus at 23 Degrees Leo Sesiquiquadrate North Node at 29 Degrees Pisces. Your perceptions about your love life and/or money matters may be a little murky right now. Decisions need to be made, but wait a few days to take action, when the right decision will be much clearer.
