The Most Important Astrological Events for July 2024

This year, the month of July is crowded, astrologically speaking. There is something for everyone and room for all zodiac signs to flaunt their charm, especially with Leo season just around the corner! Here’s what you can expect from the most important astrological events for July 2024 and how to maximize your success in the most intense month of the summer!

Key Astrological Aspects of July 2024

Retrogrades, conjunctions, a grand trine, oppositions. You name it and July brings it! Here are the main astrological events that you can’t ignore (because you will pay the price through missed opportunities!).

Neptune Retrograde (Starting July 2)

On July 2nd, Neptune, the psychic planet starts its retrograde in the water sign of Pisces. This retrograde will last until December 7th and turns its spiritual portal inwards. This means that you will not need your spiritual abilities to understand others but to understand yourself. Introspection, self-awareness, and personal growth are great themes for the next several months!


  • Trust Your Intuition: Pay close attention to your gut feelings and dreams, as Neptune retrograde heightens your intuitive abilities.
  • Stay Grounded: Engage in grounding activities like meditation or spending time in nature to avoid getting lost in Neptune’s foggy influence.
  • Reflect and Reevaluate: Use this period to reassess your long-term goals and clear away any illusions or unrealistic expectations you may have.

Mercury Enters Leo (July 2)

As Mercury enters the fire sign of Leo, it is time to let your ideas shine, literally! Your creativity is bright and you have a bold way of expressing yourself. With Mercury in Leo, you will become the center of attention almost effortlessly and have the capacity to magnetize everyone around you.


  • Embrace Bold Communication: Use this time to speak with confidence and enthusiasm, sharing your ideas with a flair that captures attention and inspires others.
  • Showcase Creativity: Leverage Mercury in Leo’s creative energy to bring innovative and artistic elements into your projects and presentations, making them stand out.
  • Engage in Positive Self-Expression: Focus on expressing yourself positively and authentically, using the warmth and charisma of Leo to build strong connections and leave a lasting impression.

Mars Conjunct Pluto (July 4)

On July 4th, the fiery Mars forms a powerful conjunction with the God of the Underworld, Pluto, in the emotional sign of Cancer. But fear not because this entire cosmic configuration can transform you into a better version of yourself. Because this is what Pluto does: transforms. And Mars gives it the energy to make the much-needed changes. All this transition going on in Cancer will make it highly emotional but your resilient spirit will show its claws!


  • Channel Your Intensity: Utilize the powerful drive of Mars conjunct Pluto to focus on meaningful projects and personal goals, turning challenges into transformative opportunities.
  • Practice Self-Control: Stay mindful of impulsive actions and reactions; harness the energy constructively to avoid conflicts and power struggles.
  • Embrace Change: Use this conjunction to confront and release deep-seated fears or obstacles, allowing profound personal growth and resilience to flourish.

New Moon in Cancer (July 5)

Use the Cancer New Moon to start fresh and set new intentions. This New Moon shines over your family and home so if you want to redecorate or spend more quality time with your loved ones, don’t miss the chance to do that! Set the goals that align with your soul’s vibration and go for it!


  • Set Intentions for Emotional Well-being: Use the nurturing energy of the Cancer new moon to set intentions that prioritize your emotional health and personal security. Reflect on what truly makes you feel safe and cared for, and make plans to incorporate more of these elements into your life?.
  • Strengthen Family Connections: This is a prime time to focus on family and home life. Plan activities that foster deeper connections with loved ones, and address any unresolved issues that might be impacting your domestic harmony?.
  • Embrace Self-Care Practices: The Cancer new moon encourages introspection and self-care. Take time to engage in activities that soothe your soul, such as meditation, journaling, or spending time in nature. This will help you recharge and align with the moon’s nurturing energy.?

Full Moon in Capricorn (July 19)

July 19th brings a Full Moon in Capricorn which brings the perfect cosmic opportunity to end your projects successfully and eliminate what holds you back. If you want to improve your routine, you can also work on that with the energy of this Full Moon.


  • Reflect on Achievements: Take time to acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments, using the structured energy of Capricorn to recognize your hard work and progress.
  • Set Practical Goals: Use the clarity of the Full Moon to set realistic and attainable goals for the future, ensuring they align with your long-term vision and ambitions.
  • Release Limitations: Identify and let go of any limiting beliefs or patterns that are holding you back, embracing the transformative power of the Full Moon to foster personal growth and resilience?

Venus Trine Neptune (July 11)

If you want to wake up the artist in you, the trine between Venus and Neptune on July 11 will help you do that. You will feel more creative and in touch with your emotions. Also, this is a great time to add some profoundness to your relationships.


  • Cultivate Compassion and Empathy: Use the nurturing energy of Venus trine Neptune to deepen emotional connections and practice empathy in your relationships. This is a great time to show kindness and understanding to loved ones and even strangers.
  • Engage in Creative Pursuits: Channel the artistic influence of this trine into creative activities. Whether it’s painting, music, writing, or any form of art, let your imagination flow and explore new avenues of self-expression.
  • Seek Spiritual Growth: Enhance your spiritual practices through meditation, yoga, or other forms of mindfulness. This alignment supports spiritual insights and a deeper connection to your inner self and the universe.

Grand Water Trine (Mid-July)

The Grand Water Trine forms between a Cancer Jupiter, Scorpio Saturn and Pisces Neptune. This event is most intense on July 16th, 17th, and 18th and comes as a divine blessing for all of us! With this event marking three water signs, it brings an emotional and profound period that invites us to take care of ourselves and our loved ones. This is also the time to dream big and keep a realistic outlook on life. I look at it as one of the few times when Jupiter and Saturn make such a tight team, along with the spiritual Neptune.


  • Embrace Emotional Healing: Use the harmonious energy of the Grand Water Trine to address and heal deep-seated emotional issues. Engage in practices like meditation, journaling, or therapy to explore and release buried feelings.
  • Enhance Intuition: Trust and develop your intuitive abilities during this period. Pay attention to your dreams, gut feelings, and inner guidance, as they can lead to profound insights and personal growth.
  • Foster Compassionate Connections: Strengthen your relationships by practicing empathy and understanding. This is an ideal time to connect deeply with loved ones and offer support and compassion to those in need.

Dear Cancer, this month you might feel like a social butterfly, which is not your natural self so, make the most out of it! Get out there and meet new people.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

  • Lucky dates: 5th, 8th, 20th 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Dear Sagittarius, you want to travel and explore the world this July. You might or might not have the opportunity to do so but your spirit is high and positive, regardless. If you can’t go on a trip, do something fun locally and create lovely memories with your friends and family.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Dear Capricorn, this July focus on getting in touch with your creative energy and postpone any serious planning! You will have many great ideas that others will appreciate too.

  • Lucky dates: 4th, 14th, 24th

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Dear Aquarius, this month starts with a busy energy and plenty of projects that require your attention. You will have a lot to work but by the end of July, you will reach harmony and balance in the most important aspects of your life. Learn to prioritize and give the same energy to your personal and professional life.

  • Lucky dates: 2nd, 8th, 20th 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Dear Pisces, you might struggle to reach milestones at work but you can blame it on the dreamy Neptunian energy that makes you crave vacation. Avoid risky investments and focus on maintaining health and well-being through practices, like yoga and meditation. This is a month for emotional and spiritual growth.
