Your 11th house of friends and group activities became very powerful on July 22, and is even stronger this month. So the month ahead is very social – a happy month. This house is more about platonic kinds of relationships rather than romantic ones, yet because your love planet Mars will be here all month, romance is likely to happen from these kinds of activities. Something nice happens romantically on the 1st.

Health is good this month. Not perfect, but good. With more energy available to you, pre-existing conditions either fade away or lessen considerably.

Though your yearly career peak is over, we still see you successful this month. Venus crosses the Mid-heaven on the 1st and enters your career house. Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, is the most elevated planet in your chart this month. (The Moon will briefly be more elevated on the 17th and 18th – but this is a short-term condition.) This shows that you are above everyone in your world. You are elevated. People look up to you and aspire to be like you. It shows authority and power. Honours and recognition are likely this month. In general you’ll have more enthusiasm and zest for the career from the 1st to the 7th and from the 21st onwards – as the Moon waxes. A Lunar Eclipse on the 7th impacts on the career and brings dramatic changes – I feel they will be good ones. Doors open for you (shakeups in your company or industry – and perhaps with bosses – achieve this). There can be dramas in the lives of parents and parent figures too.

This Lunar Eclipse impacts on your love planet, Mars. So a current relationship will get some testing. Sometimes this kind of eclipse signals a change of the marital status. (Singles often marry or get engaged under this kind of eclipse.)

There is also a Solar Eclipse on the 21st. This occurs in your 11th house and impacts on the ruler of that house, the Sun. You have been through this in February (twice). Once again friendships get tested. Your high-tech equipment and gadgetry get tested. Some will need replacement. Computers and online activity can be erratic this period. Make sure important files are backed up and do your best to protect yourself against hackers and viruses. Children and children figures in your life have social dramas. If they are of an appropriate age, marriages get tested. Younger ones have friendships tested.
