Your social life will be quite enjoyable the first half of the month. After July 4, it'll be possible for you to meet new friends or acquaintances with whom you share much in common. You might also decide to join a new group. Attend a meeting for an organization that offers lectures on a topic you want to explore. Creative, inspiring mental connections with pals will be incredible.
After July 13, you might feel more like hiding out instead of socializing. The marked difference in mood for you between the first half and the second half of the month is indeed striking. Honor any need you have for extra solitude. You might want to take a spa retreat or spend time in meditation or yoga classes. Another option is to decide to become fully engaged in a course of therapy if there's anything distressing you that you'd like to work out. A breakthrough is possible.
Your love life comes into focus on July 19. Feelings for someone will be extra intense during this time. Another possibility is that you'll have an emotional situation to address with one of your children that requires you to be the adult. Of course, this won't be a problem for you.

Keep In Mind:
July 1 will be a pivotal day for you in your love life, or your relationship with a child. A Full Moon will fall in your true love sector and it appears that you and someone special are ready to take your relationship to the next level. You might declare your love for this person for the very first time. Or, you and your sweetheart might make a commitment to one another that is more binding. Another possibility is that you'll make a decision to start a family and if that happens, you'll both feel complete bliss! Alternatively, if love and children are not highlighted for you during this time you may put the finishing touches on a creative endeavor and prepare to release it out into the world. You'll be so proud of your accomplishment!
Your social life might open up near the New Moon on July 15 but take care not to rush into any commitments. You might be so zealous about a humanitarian endeavor that you want to participate in that you come across as overly pushy to others. That would be intimidating rather than helpful so be aware of how you come across.
On July 18, Venus enters your sign but she won't be in a happy place. In fact on July 25, she'll turn retrograde in Virgo challenging you to rethink why you're feeling “unbeautiful.” Fortunately, Venus will move out of your sign on July 31 spending the rest of her retrograde in Leo and your hidden 12th house. Until September 6, the lessons in self-worth and love continue but they'll be more internal and private. When it comes to love and relationships, it's definitely time to face your fears.

Jupiter will tour your 12th House of Privacy, the area of your chart that rules everything unseen. This is like having your own personal army of guardian angel protection.

You’re tempted to withhold your feelings this month, Virgo -- a tendency that starts with the protective Cancer Solar Eclipse in your 11th House of Teamwork on July 1, bringing out your need to take care of your friends.
