July horoscopes: cancer
Cancer: June 22–July 22

You’re highly energized now, Cancer, and poised to throw yourself into personal endeavors that propel you forwards.

However, a partnership features significantly early in the month, too, with relationship issues coming full circle by July 8th. It could be hard to relax on this emotional day, so navigate gently as self-care is paramount.

Focus shifts to your role, income and savings towards month's end. After the 23rd, full attention centers on occupation. It’s important and totally possible to feel proud of yourself and your approach to earnings, so if you’re lacking motivation it’s possible to begin again, refreshing your interest in the position that delivers rewards.
