Julie Simmons’ Sun Sign Predictions – Summer 2020

Summer Overview

JULY: You are reminded that you have or will have work to do again. We should think ahead to how it has changed and what it will take to do it. There are opportunities available now that don’t look like much but might be helpful later.

AUGUST: The demands placed on you require a tremendous amount of focus. It’s not enough to bluster on just because you are convinced you are on the right track. It matters how you make the effort, what you do to strengthen the structures that underpin your life, even if you can’t guarantee they won’t be blown apart later. We are no longer strangers to chaos and unpredictability.

Aries

MAR. 20 to APR. 19  

JULY: Roll up your sleeves. There is a lot to do and it will be easier if you remind yourself that you were born to this life and therefore it’s yours to deal with. Perhaps you are part of a long line of incarnations. What can you do with that idea?

AUGUST: Your passion to ignite the fires of radical change is met with many obstacles. The situation requires strategy and presence for the next four months. Breakthrough is possible. Dynamic patience, like active listening, requires presence.

Taurus

APR. 20 to MAY 20   

JULY: The best friends are the wise ones. They may challenge you because they see your potential, not because they want to undermine you. Who you associate with matters this month.

AUGUST: Our fundamental beliefs underlie our actions. In times of chaos, like these, it may seem that we should go straight to action without reflection. Not a good idea. Give some thought to possible outcomes. It’s all too easy to do the wrong thing.

Gemini

MAY 21 to JUNE 21  

JULY: So much depends on others. We are a deeply interconnected species. The successes of manipulators and liars is on account of our willingness, our desire, to trust. Evaluate, be wary, and take the measure of those who want you to trust them.

AUGUST: Having determined who you can and cannot trust, it still remains important that you listen to your hunches and trust your felt sense. Now is a time to meet challenges with as much calm confidence as possible. Change generally feels like chaos at first.

Cancer

JUNE 21 to JULY 21   

JULY: Sensitivity is not the same as weakness. What unique qualities do you have that make you the right person for the tasks you face?

AUGUST: Ride the wild horses of confrontation as best you can. Be responsive to how others react but remember – you are not responsible for their choices.

Leo

JULY 22 to AUG. 22   

JULY: Pay attention to synchronicity. This world is loaded with all kinds of information some of which does not come via the intellect. You have much work to do. The more you invest it with meaning, the better.

AUGUST: This is one crazy world and it is heating up in more ways than one. You are a natural born leader. Don’t be reckless, but don’t drive with your brakes on either.

Virgo

AUG. 23 to SEPT. 22  

JULY: Everything about love matters. The ‘who’ and the ‘why’ and the ‘why not’. If friends and lovers don’t get along it can be troublesome. Don’t make excuses and don’t try and make people fit where they don’t.

AUGUST: Creative. Resistance. Not words that belong together but it seems it’s your mandate to see beneath your fear (of love? of self-expression?) and push past the barrier. You have time. Don’t try to figure it out all at once.

Libra

SEPT. 23 to OCT. 22   

JULY: Find the sweet spot between obligation and effort and return there as often as possible. A lot is expected of you and although you are fed by those who have come before (the ancestors), you are only one among many. You can and should not bear the weight of your world alone.

AUGUST: The demands of others are heard as commands. Do not simply react. Be considered in your responses. That way you will not be at the mercy of the demands of wanton children.

Scorpio

OCT. 23 to NOV. 21  

JULY: Your words have power. Use them to foster love and creativity, not to cause love to wither on the vine. Locked down or not, we constantly choose how we deal with ourselves and one another.

AUGUST: You couldn’t be busier. Every effort is worth making. Consider the energy that powers your efforts. It’s the Life Force: May it be with you and you with it.

Sagittarius

NOV. 22 to DEC. 21   

JULY: Abundance is not measured the way it once was. We are coming to value this world differently. Count your blessings even as you understand that nothing lasts.

AUGUST: What you love, and whom, seems to be draining your resources. It’s true there is only so much time, energy, and money in your stash. Love is the bottomless resource. The times require you to trust your heart rather than hoard your resources. But don’t be silly about it.

Capricorn

DEC. 22 to JAN. 19  

JULY: Obligation and responsibility are not the same. Continue sorting and step willingly into that which you can and must do. Do not flagellate yourself with what you can’t do. Nobody can do it all.

AUGUST: Tension ratchets up if you lose your footing due to fear, shame, or reactivity. Consider the long haul. Be strategic. Reactions from you cause defenses in others. Responses make space for true interaction.

Aquarius

JAN. 20 to FEB. 18   

JULY: The inner world is as real, but not more real, than the outer one. The more relaxed you are in connecting these worlds, the happier. Relax your shoulders, drop your jaw, take a deep breath, exhale fully, whenever you remember.

AUGUST: A time of relentless busyness arises with interruptions at every turn. Imagine you are a cosmic juggler, confident that you can keep so many worlds (balls) in the air. When they fall, have a good laugh and begin again.

Pisces

FEB. 19 to MAR. 20  

JULY: The time for re-visioning just about everything is now. The world changes and so do we with it. Which isn’t to say it’s all bad. Or good. Expect nothing, which isn’t the same as missing the boat. Be ready for an injection of energy to your finances.

AUGUST: Fortune is fickle, which is true but you are not out of luck. In fact there is no telling what’s just around the corner. The best laid plans aren’t always the best way to go. Most of all, be willing to change.
