The stars indicate July will be a calm month and suggest that, on the whole, we’re in for an easy time. However, a new moon will take place in Leo – the first of two new moons for the sign this year, with another coming in August. This will have a far-reaching effect. New moons signify a chance to start again, so having two in a row in Leo means you have double the chance for change in your life, whether that’s your sign or not.
While July looks relatively breezy for most of the signs, remember that we’re a month away from the next eclipse season, which starts in August. That means that the energies are hotting up. It also suggests that if you're craving a peaceful and calm life, then you really need to relish any chances you get for that in July because August could be more intense!
