Here is the horoscope for July 2024, the month of our Nation’s birth. July 4, 1776, is generally considered the astrological birth chart of the United States. Learn what this means—and find the July horoscope for all 12 zodiac signs.

The U.S. Was Born in the Sign of Cancer 

Cancer is the Sun sign for July, the month of our country’s birthday. America definitely has a Cancer personality: caring, leadership, and nurturing, but also vague in our motivations and ultimate goals. The totem for Cancer, after all, is the crab. 

Have you ever watched Crabs on the Beach? They don’t move forward; they sidestep. July 4, 1776, has not one, two, or three planets in Cancer, but four (out of ten). This makes it hard for us to deal with our issues in a forthright manner. We tend to hint at the possibilities, draw circles around our problems, and kick the can down the road.
With Cancer’s personality, it is important to look beyond the obvious for resolutions and truth. Not all the right answers can be found in what others tell us; we also need to question the narrative. The Constitution’s First Amendment about free speech should be furiously defended. Beware the drumbeat of censorship because if we can’t criticize our government, totalitarianism will take hold.

July Horoscope

Planet Neptune begins a period of apparent retrograde motion in the early morning of the 2nd. Because of this, it will be somewhat “locked in step” with our planet for the whole first week of this month. This will make it a strong influence.
Planet Neptune rules music, art, dance, photography, visions, dreams, illusions, and the collective unconscious. 

This first week of July will be a time when dreams are abundant, creativity is high, and anything can seem possible. However, there is also a tendency to be overly optimistic or naive under this influence, so keep the credit cards in your wallet and leave the larger monetary bills at home. Make sure, however, that paper and pencils are at hand so that you can write down your ideas. Like dreams, they can fly away if not attached to something physical.

We are working toward a New Moon at 6:57 PM (EDT) on the 5th. Between this time and the Full Moon at 6:17 AM (EDT) on the 21st, you could initiate anything that you would like to see grow. See your local Moon Phase Calendar.
