Aries July Horoscope
You’re focused on your home this month—moving, buying, or just doing a major closet cleanout. But it’s not only your physical space that’s got your attention. Your spiritual home, whether it’s your family, partner, or friends, will weigh heavily on you as the month leads up to the July 23 new moon. It may feel like your home is pulling you away from life goals, but don’t panic—and don’t make any major decisions. As the Sun/Mars conjunction on July 26 occurs, you’ll find yourself on the right path.

You’ve invited a lot of new people into your life these past few months, Bulls, and the interactions that occur near the July 8 full moon will help determine who might stick.

Listen to everyone, but don’t agree to any serious commitments. There’s a lot of false communication flying these next few weeks. Make sure to keep a record of any serious conversations; you’ll be glad you covered your back.

Repeat after us: You’ve got this.

As the July 8 full moon approaches, you’re finding a lot of money-making opportunities coming your way. Maybe it’s a new job offer, maybe your business is finally taking off, but whatever it is, remain in control and don’t say yes without doing a full workup of potential outcomes. And don’t get too caught up in work. As the July 23 new moon approaches, social opportunities skyrocket, especially with casual acquaintances. It just may be that one of these people can help take your career and your financials to the next level, so indulge in casual work conversation over a BBQ—it’ll literally pay off.
