Whether or not you believe in the stars, horoscopes or astrology, monthly forecasts usually resonate in some way. Our regular star-sign forecasts by Sharan (tarotbysharan.com) are actually based on tarot, so they’re a little bit different.

Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
It’s a fantastic financial month for Cancer. If a property is what you’ve been seeking, then this is the month to achieve that milestone. House extensions or refurbishments are also on the cards. Money becomes available to make your home the place you dreamed of. Obviously, you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket. While home improvements can be seen as adding value to your property, it might be wise to diversify or begin some research (seeing that it’s a Mercury Retrograde month) on how you should go about all of this.
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
This month could either be a very emotional one if you’re unable to let go and move on, or it could be seen as a rite of passage once you realise it’s time for change. There is definitely an end but also a new beginning, depending on how you choose to look at things. Sacrifices may need to be made but these will provide a better tomorrow for all involved. For example, if a relationship isn’t working out or someone is feeling stifled, then the best thing would be to free them. Be the better person so everyone can move forward.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
Your fear of not having enough money or not making enough gives way to you trusting your instincts and moving forward towards materialising your dreams. It’s a matter of changing your mindset and looking at the possibilities rather than focusing on the obstacles if you’re looking at building your wealth. You’ll soon learn that being an entrepreneur has got to do with you trusting your gut instincts and not being afraid to follow your dream.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
It’s a celebratory month ahead. You’ve worked hard to be basking in this abundance. Anything that marks a milestone this July will be a reason to celebrate. After giving your energy towards the material aspects of your life, you have the gift of time to give to your relationships and loved ones. Wedding bells may ring, a stork may be landing or just being around family and old friends will be a cause for celebration. Whatever it may be, it will be a well-deserved time to be enjoyed.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
The focus is on relationships this month. The emotional side of Scorpio comes out in full force. The lesson to be learned will be to create balance with your emotions, and to be objective. It’s okay to be in love and make that the reason for holding onto a relationship. Seek help if you must to give yourself the opportunity to see things from a different perspective. Communicate to erase doubt. But also be careful when it comes to this communication – be as clear as you can. Make it in writing if possible, so as to avoid things being taken out of context.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
July will be a month of reflection. Coupled with the fact that it’s a Mercury Retrograde month and your path will feel like it’s even more riddled with obstacles than before, it might be wise to take a back seat to see what can be changed in your approach. A solution or a new idea is necessary so you don’t feel like you’re working towards nothing. A lot of hard work has been put in but you have felt like you have nothing to show for it. It’s time to stop to take a breather and reflect and rethink your plans.
Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
It’s a fabulous time to be thinking about getting into a new business venture, partnering up with some with a brilliant idea or finding an investment opportunity. It’s the month to start planning around growing your money. However, don’t act in haste and part with your money too quickly – the clue is in those words “thinking about”. So, it’s a month to spend time researching and getting as much information as you can about your potential investment idea so you know what you’re getting yourself into. It’s a great month to earn from a sale of a property as well; so, get your property valued and hold off on getting things on the market till next month!
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
Your creative juices are flowing this month. The question is, do you do something about them or let someone else use them? Apart from your creativity bubbling, your instincts are going to feel very sharp. Learn to open yourself up to the possibility of expansion and taking that spark of an idea and fanning it to a great flame. It might be a good idea to partner up to see your idea through. Working with someone helps to create a balanced action plan. Take your time and use your instincts to guide you when finding a suitable partner.
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
It’s the perfect month to retreat inwards and connect with yourself. Pay attention to your dreams and your instincts. Keep a dream journal if it helps, pay attention to who you meet and places you are drawn to. This could be like a jigsaw for what the direction of your path should be. You are on your way to creating stability and security in your future. So, pay attention to your gut instincts when having to make crucial decisions.
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
This is an extremely trying time for Aries emotionally as well as mentally. Help is available for you, if you allow yourself to open up to realising the cause of your distress. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being a victim, but harder to come out of it and look at this from a different perspective. Until you become aware that you are solely responsible for your situation and that only you have the power to change your position in your situation, then nothing can change. The clue lies in your subconscious. The good news is, you do wake up to this realisation by month’s end, just as Mercury Retrograde draws to a close.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
You might be rubbing people up the wrong way this month if you keep up with your “superior” attitude. You may have raked up a good number of years of experience in your field to command the respect that you deserve, but stepping down from your high horse every now and then and seeing the team as “us” rather than “me” will actually create a healthier working environment and a much more productive team. The key is to exercise your authority in moderation. You don’t need to be cracking the whip all the time to get what you want.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
With this being a Mercury Retrograde month, you can expect communication with family to be pear-shaped. Most of the conflict or miscommunication you will face this month will be associated with family. This will either concern family finances or property – for example, sorting out a will or splitting up an inheritance. You could throw your toys out of your pram until you get your way, or you could simply walk away and let karma deal with things. If you choose to proceed with the former, then expect to cause friction and possibly the severing of some relationships. It’s a tricky month for relationships, so tread carefully. Hold your tongue, if you can, and it should be a smooth month ahead.
