The start of July means the first half of the year has officially ended so it’s a good time to check in on your 2024 money goals and ensure you’re on a solid track to success. You might be tempted to splurge a little more impulsively this month, as the astrology of July is brimming with the abundant vibes of the summertime plus a few chaotic planetary connections. But by the end of the month, making strides on career goals and organizing your finances should be a lot easier.

Neptune retrograde starts at the beginning of the month, reminding everyone that escapism isn’t the best route to tangible goals. Face your financial situation head-on and empower yourself. The new moon in Cancer on July 5 pulls domestic matters to the forefront of your mind, so invest in things you need to make your home feel more comfortable and calming.

All zodiac signs should be cautious about overspending or splurging on something recklessly during the middle of the month, as impulsive Mars is crashing into chaos-maker Uranus in the hedonistic sign of Taurus on July 15. Taurus is an earth sign, and it’s associated with luxury, indulgences, and material goods — having these two planets collide here could beget some spontaneous shopping sprees or overly extravagant purchases. Avoid being foolhardy with your finances and you’ll be just fine.

On July 21, the full moon in pragmatic and industrious Capricorn lights up your ambitious side, giving you the juice you need to work toward career goals and long-term financial plans. Leo season starts the next day, so set aside some cash for summer social outings or fun leisure activities. Logistics planet Mercury zooms into its home sign of analytical and orderly Virgo on July 25, making it a fabulous time to get ultra granular with your budget and dig into the nitty-gritty details of your finances.

Communication is a big deal this month, so lead with your heart and you could make some meaningful connections with colleagues — especially under the new moon on July 5.
