Stress slows you down this month, but a fitness program works wonders. (Target your endurance levels and enhance your sense of grace and flexibility.) Allow ample time for inner fitness, too. Try meditation or more contemplative activities.
Frustration at work can creep into your personal relationships unless you make an effort to keep those boundaries carefully protected. Spend time with friends to boost your spirits, and make an effort to reach out unconditionally during the Moon on July 12. You may feel a little withdrawn near the lunar eclipse on July 28, but might also enjoy a getaway with your sweetheart—just the two of you in a quiet retreat.
Mercury’s retrograde from July 12 to August 6 is complicated by vague misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations and hidden agendas. You may actually make headway in stalled negotiations from July 12 to 24, when your common-sense practicality can save the day. Extra care in legal matters is necessary, and this is a good time to review contracts, edit documents or do important research.
Take advantage of the energy around the lunar eclipse to make improvements at work and to revise plans that will ultimately affect your productivity.
