I'm posting this week's horoscopes a day early...
The July 4th New Moon in Cancer makes a tense inconjunct to Saturn Rx in Sagittarius and an easy trine to Neptune Rx in Pisces. The contrasting energies of restriction and flow can add up to a shaky, but generally positive, new beginning. Success won’t be guaranteed, and you’ll have to deal with limits. But there should be a sense of momentum, as certain things just fall into place. Mercury in Cancer's aspects to Saturn and Neptune suggest faith versus doubts will be put into words.
From July 6th to 11th, a fortunate Grand Water Trine keeps things moving along. Mars in Scorpio trines Chiron Rx in Pisces, and Venus/Mercury, in Cancer. Mars is the engine - actions will harmonize with what you want (Venus) and what you think (Mercury) while activating deeper areas of healing (Chiron). This current of energy will enhance confidence, empathy and achievement. It’s gentle, but there's enough drive to make something happen. Mars is the key: you’ll have to take action.
July 6th sees a conjunction of the Sun and Mercury in Cancer, and both will oppose Pluto Rx on July 7th. Here is the culmination of what Mercury’s Saturn/Neptune aspects (during the New Moon) suggested. Watch for a turning-point conversation/announcement/piece of information that reveals something deeper or uncomfortable. Squares to Uranus from Venus (July 7th) and Mercury (July 10th) will offer a few surprises. But the Grand Trine will keep positive momentum going throughout all of this. If you’re caught off guard, know that decisive actions, or strategic motivations, are your tickets to progress.

There’s something you’ve been fighting for - only consider new developments that support your fight.
The New Moon in your opportunities sector suggests a chance to explore or expand, in the areas of travel, education or publishing. In some cases, there may be a new legal development.

You may have some doubts about letting someone in.

A conversation with a co-worker, a diagnosis or solution can clarify matters, while revealing that an issue goes much deeper than you thought,

Your efforts can be recognized by management, and there may be a financial reward (although the extra money can come from working overtime). Too, a job search can pay off. On the other hand, it may be too easy for you to go with the flow, work more and not push for compensation. Aspects to Uranus in your communication sector can help, as you’re jolted with a realization, conversation or event that reminds you how valuable your contributions really are.
The New Moon in your sector of self-expression, trine Neptune Rx in your sign, can deliver the goods in the form of a new romance, successful launch of a creative project, or promising developments with children/pregnancy. This could feel like the start of a dream come true, but you'll also have to deal with some “what if” anxieties. While there is significant potential, you’ll have to accommodate current rules/realities involving professional image, career, or future goals. There may be some doubts about whether new developments actually align with your goals. Sun/Mercury in your sector of self-expression can signal a public launch or intensive conversation that fires your passion and propels you forward.
The Grand Water Trine, hooking into Chiron Rx in your sign, suggests increased confidence that supports ambition/the desire to explore, and drives you forward.

Aspects to Uranus in your sector of personal resources can increase your desire to take risks, financially or emotionally. By all means, kick up your heels, but know that a temporary desire to cut loose must be balanced by caution.
