Zodiac for July

cancer

Cancer – June 21 – July 22 - is healing, nurturing, sensitivity seeking psychological understanding, emotional self-expression, and the capacity to heal others. The house where your Cancer rules is where you will be challenged to create a “safe place” in which to grow emotionally. Here you have deep feelings, and tend to be super-sensitive and defensive.

 

leojuly-augs

Leo – July 23 – August 22 - is self-expression seeking confidence, ease, and honor in the social world. The house where your Leo rules is where you will be challenged to “shine”; to apply the positive, creative qualities of your sun sign, and find a sense of inner peace.
