Every year, July in Tokyo brings the heat. The warm vibrations from the city seep into our skin, improving our blood flow, getting us eager for firework festivals or a trip to the beach. It’s not just the weather that’s helping us let loose, though — we’re starting the month with chatty Mercury and passionate Venus both entering fiery Leo, allowing us to genuinely enjoy connecting with others. We’re also seeing a Mars and Jupiter conjunction on July 13, so you might feel a spur of boldness mid-month.

Energy isn’t all going outwards this month, though. After all, we’re still waist-deep in sensitive Cancer season, and the new moon in Cancer on July 5 will be a healing moment for us all. We’ve also been experiencing Saturn’s retrograde since the tail end of June, forcing us to get real with ourselves. Be honest: How much progress have you made on your New Year’s resolution, and do you need to recontextualize it based on what you know now, halfway through the year? 

We round out the month with continued balance between external and internal energy. We’ll enter excitable Leo season, encouraging us to pursue happiness unapologetically. However, on July 25, Mercury enters logical Virgo, making us more thoughtful with our word choices, and wounded healer Chiron goes retrograde on the 26th, making us reflect on any wounds we’ve yet to heal from.

Keep reading below for your sign’s monthly horoscope, and make sure to check both your sun and rising signs.
