A new month means new opportunities and obstacles - here Russell Grant reveals what's coming up for you...
Things are changing on the home front on the 13th, due to a Solar Eclipse. You won't be fond of many of these transformations. It may be necessary to relocate for work. You might have to take a loss on a property sale. It's even possible you will have to downsize to a smaller place, simply as a cost cutting measure. Don't worry too much what others will think of this change. The important thing is to remain positive and look for ways to turn this lemon into a brimming pitcher of lemonade. A group collaboration will come to a rapid conclusion on the 27th. That's when a Lunar Eclipse makes you free to pursue a solo project. As soon as you fulfil your obligations to the team, get started on this personal plan. It will quickly bring you to a higher level of achievement. You're ready for success on your own terms.
The Solar Eclipse on the 13th makes it difficult to operate as part of a team. Although you have good ideas, louder members of the group will discount your suggestions. Trying to be heard will be an exercise in futility. Instead of raising your voice, retreat to a quiet corner. Let everybody else battle things out. Conserve your energy for more rewarding activities, like creative projects and romantic relationships. On the 27th, the Lunar Eclipse marks a career high point. Being promoted to another department will be a huge feather in your cap. Get ready for your close up. If you've been unemployed, that situation will end. You'll be given a job with lots of room for growth. Don't be afraid to put your ambition on display. When your superiors understand that you are eager to move ahead, they'll give you every opportunity to do so. Your calm diligence will be greatly appreciated.
Your financial security will be undermined on the 13th, due to a jarring Solar Eclipse. It may be necessary to pay a legal fee, make an alimony payment or buy out a business partner. You'll be a little alarmed by your resulting bank balance, but try to stay calm. By being extra resourceful, you'll eventually recoup this loss and move on to bigger and better things. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th may find you returning from an extended trip. Wrapping up the terms of a legal matter is another possibility. As soon as you conclude this business, you'll be able to explore greener pastures. Burn off your excess energy with a fitness program. The more physically active you are, the easier it will be to face the challenges ahead. Venturing into unknown territory will be refreshing. You're tired of being held hostage by an old, outmoded arrangement.
Getting a personal project off the ground will be difficult on the 13th. That's when a Solar Eclipse puts strain on your personal life. Your best friend, romantic partner or even a professional contact does not want to change the status quo. You're eager to explore new territory. This will create a tug of war that is emotionally exhausting. It may be necessary to decide what you want more: Your relationship or your dream. Trust your gut; it has never steered you wrong. On the 27th, the Lunar Eclipse concludes a financial struggle. Money from an inheritance, legal settlement or insurance refund will finally land in your account, causing you to breathe a sigh of relief. Use this windfall to pay off some bills. Getting out of debt will liberate you to pursue more rewarding projects. You might be able to leave an oppressive job for one that offers lots more creative fulfilment.
On the 13th, the Solar Eclipse will bring an embarrassing secret to light. A jealous colleague will try making trouble for you. If you've been caught posting a tasteless remark or bending the rules, issue an immediate and sincere apology. Don't just say you are sorry if you offended anyone. Claim responsibility for your actions and vow to change your ways. It will take time for people to trust you again, so be patient. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings an end to a partnership that has run its course. Going solo will be scary but stimulating. Take this opportunity to explore a new lifestyle, hobby or belief system. When you pour your energy into activities and beliefs that resonate with your spirit, you'll feel as if you have been reborn. Friends and family may find certain choices strange, but don't worry. This is your life; stop seeking outside approval.
You'll feel like a duck out of water on the 13th. That's when a Solar Eclipse will put you in a group that utterly confounds you. Not only will you disagree with virtually all their beliefs, but you'll also find their attitudes offensive. Instead of trying to convert everyone to your point of view, pretend you are a spy. Listening carefully to their logic will help you understand what motivates them. Knowing what to say to get members to do your bidding will be helpful. On the 27th, a Lunar Eclipse will bring an end to a health regime or work assignment. It will feel strange leaving this familiar routine behind. Instead of wading slowly into a new way of life, you'll be forced to adopt these changes immediately. Being forced to think on your feet will be a welcome challenge for you. Instead of overanalysing your options, you'll have to make instinctive choices.
A professional offer on the 13th is not as rosy as it appears. The Solar Eclipse will force you to choose between having a rewarding public and professional life. If you take this job, you'll have little opportunity to spend time with friends and family. All your energy will be channelled into pleasing a boss who is on a power trip. You're better off passing up this opportunity and waiting for one that affords a better work/life balance. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th marks a turning point in a romantic relationship or creative project. If you're seeing someone special, you could get engaged or married. Are you footloose and fancy free? Favourable publicity about your work will lead to a series of lucrative commissions. July ends on a high note. Remember this if you're feeling discouraged by a stressful work situation. What seems like a loss now could become a victory later in the year.
The Solar Eclipse on the 13th will make you feel like you're out of your depth. If you're asked to do work that is beyond the scope of your knowledge, ask for help. Admitting your ignorance and deferring to those with more experience will earn people's respect. You're in a terrible situation. Nobody blames you for it. The only way you can tarnish your reputation is by pretending to know what you're doing. On the 27th, a Lunar Eclipse brings unexpected closure to a family problem. You'll breathe a sigh of relief when care is found for an elderly relative or a new school is discovered for a struggling child. Once this matter is settled, you'll be able to improve your living situation. Finding a new place to live or making some home improvements will give you forward momentum. It will be a relief to resume your personal life.
A powerful physical attraction will create financial strain on the 13th. The Solar Eclipse will make you restless. Resist the temptation to buy someone's affection. It's also important to stay true to your moral code. Trying to impress somebody by assuming a cavalier attitude will cause problems later. You shouldn't have to put on an act to win a person's heart. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th will cause someone to render their final decision. Once you get the news, you'll be able to move forward with a plan of action. Starting a blog, posting a video or launching a promotional campaign is strongly advised. You have an original way of expressing yourself. This attracts a wide audience. People are looking for a public speaker with a fresh approach. You're not afraid to defy expectations and send shock waves through the audience. Soon, everybody will be buzzing about the zany new social media superstar.
On the 13th, a Solar Eclipse will prompt you to pay more attention to a close relationship. Expecting your best friend, romantic partner or someone you work with to follow orders will create deep resentment. Be more attentive. Stop insisting on taking the lead. By playing the part of a helpful assistant, you'll pave the way for a happier, healthier union. If you've been in a committed relationship that no longer works, it may be time to part ways. This breakup will be painful but cathartic. A source of income will come to an end on the 27th, due to a Lunar Eclipse. Once this job finishes, you'll be able to land a bigger and better opportunity. Don't be afraid to apply for a position in the hi-tech industry. Alternatively, you could find work involving air travel, broadcasting or lab research. You'll face some stiff competition for this spot, but don't worry. Your application will stand out from the crowd.
A health regime will get off to a rocky start, due to a stressful Solar Eclipse on the 13th. A new medication could make you feel queasy. An exercise programme could result in a sprain or strain. If a doctor's suggestions are wreaking havoc, let them know. They might propose an alternative treatment. Are you unhappy with the level of attention you're receiving? Get a second opinion. It's important to work with a health professional whom you respect. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th puts you in the spotlight. Breaking off a relationship will put you in line for a much better arrangement. You're no longer willing to compromise with pushy people professionally. Going solo will allow you to turn a good idea into a great one. Take this opportunity to start a business, change your lifestyle or alter your appearance. When one door closes, another will open.
News of an engagement, marriage or pregnancy will come as a shock on the 13th. That's when a Solar Eclipse turns your world upside down. Your whole life is going to change. This change will make you resentful. In some ways, you'll feel like you've lost your best friend. Instead of letting your hurt feelings simmer, find an outlet for them. Working on a creative project or joining a club will be a welcome distraction in mid-July. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th brings an end to a period of deception. Once you discover someone's true character, you'll be able to make better decisions. Someone who has been trying to convert you to their belief system should be told to back off. You're very respectful when discussing spiritual matters, but don't like it when you're pressured to change your convictions. If this pest continues with their sales pitch, break off the relationship or file a complaint.
