Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, offers summer travel and romance with generous Jupiter at the beginning of the month Friday July 1st. This is a great day for any celebrations or weddings, especially for those born in Cancer and Virgo.

On the next day of the holiday weekend, Saturday July 2nd, the Sun and somber Saturn requires a day for recovery and rest. Some will decide they have too much work to do. Mars has stationed in the sky and is now moving slowly forward, ending a period of inaction. The ambitious ones will be working a second job or taking on more responsibilities, so be careful not to burn out as energy could be at a low.  This can make Sagittarius a bit cranky now as that sign hates any limitations.

On the 1st, the sun is in a challenging square to nebulous Neptune which can create an atmosphere of misunderstandings or errors in judgment. Neptune rules the sign Pisces and is a water planet indicating rain, even floods or sweltering heat. Floating meditation is an excellent way to use the higher vibrations of the moment.

The next day, Venus also squares off with Neptune now in its own sign Pisces. This is a romantic and creative couple of days but some will see love through rose-colored glasses.

On the 3rd, the sun opposes somber Saturn. Energy may be low during this period of delays or obstacles.  Patience and perseverance can further ambitions. Also on the 3rd, Venus opposes Saturn which can be an excellent time to paint, clean and organize home or office. Extra responsibilities to loved ones may take up your time. Some may be missing loved ones. Gemini and Sagittarius could be experiencing strain in relationships.
