We present you the most important planetary transits and astrological aspects, in July 2019. At the very beginning of this month, on July 1st, Mars enters Leo, bringing more passions into our lives and especially into our relationships. Between 9 and 30 July, Mercury retrogrades in Leo (until July 19th) and then in Cancer, complicates things, when we need to express our feelings.

On July 2nd, there is the second solar eclipse of this year, a total solar eclipse visible in much of South America, south of North America and in Pacific

July 1st: MARS ENTERS LEO – you want to improve your physical attractiveness and you need to bring more passion in your relationships. You also take more financial risks. „You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out“. (Steve Jobs)

July 2nd: NEW MOON IN CANCER (Sun conjunct Moon in Cancer) – you can be moved easily, because today you become highly sensitive. You need emotional intelligence more than ever. „Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears“ (Edgar Allan Poe)
