July starts on a very auspicious note. The full moon day of 5 July is the day of Guru Purnima, celebrated in memory of sage Vyasa. It is the day to pay obeisance to the Guru, spiritual or otherwise and seek blessings.
There is also a Penumbral lunar eclipse on 5 July. However, this will not be visible from India. It will be visible in the European countries, North and South Americas and some parts of Western Africa.
Sun is transiting from Gemini to Cancer on July 16, 2020. This denotes beginning of Sun’s travel to the southern hemisphere or Dakshinayan. Venus 2020 will stay in Taurus for the entire month of July 2020.
Mercury will go direct in Gemini on July 12, 2020 and stay there the whole month. Mars Stays put in Pisces. Retrograde Jupiter will be in Sagittarius and retrograde Saturn will be in Capricorn the entire month. Rahu and Ketu will remain in Gemini and Sagittarius respectively.

The big event this month is Jupiter’s move back into Sagittarius. Jupiter entered back Sagittarius on 30 June 2020. Entering Sagittarius in retrograde motion gives us a window of opportunity to revisit and rectify any unattended or incomplete issues related to higher learning, personal growth and spirituality. In personal horoscopes whichever house is occupied by Sagittarius and the opposite house of it will get activated. If there is any inadequacy in matters related to these houses, this is the best time to correct it, so that when Jupiter goes direct and comes out of Rahu Ketu axis, you can harvest the positive results fully.
Mercury is going direct in the sign of Gemini on 12 July 2020. This is a brilliant news in July after all. The confusion and instability in business, commerce, travel and communication that was caused by retrograde Mercury along with Rahu and Retrograde Jupiter will begin to ease after 12 July. Strong Mercury in its own sign of Gemini will promote stable communication, quick and productive thinking. People will now receive the right advice and confused state of mind will get much needed clarity.
Direct and strong Venus in Taurus is definitely a positive phenomenon this month. Venus helps to stabilise the finances to some extent in this time of global instability. Venus signifies healing. Strong Venus in the sky indicates remedial measures for the pandemic. On an individual level, people will feel more connected to their creative self. The relationships will heal from the trauma of being confined and being too close for comfort.
As we are seeing, all major planets are in their own signs; this looks quite good and has the potential to bring stability and hope. However, the irony is either they are afflicted or are forming 6 / 8 (Sadashtak) relation in transit. Jupiter is with Ketu, Mercury is afflicted by Rahu. Saturn is creating trine aspect with Venus. 6-8 relation in transit this month are forming between :
- Venus and Jupiter
- Saturn and Mercury – Rahu – Sun (till 16 July)
- Jupiter and Sun (from 16 July)
With so many 6 / 8 relations in transit, most of the benefic promises of the planets this month may not be that fruitful after all.
Another important transit fact this month is Sun – Saturn opposition. After 16 July Sun – Saturn opposition forms in the 4th and 10th houses of the natural zodiac or Kaalpurush Kundli. Whenever Sun and Saturn forms opposition in the sky, it adds to the frustration in people. This time it is happening with Sun in Cancer where Sun is not powerful at all. Sun in Cancer loses its directional strength. This opposition denotes poor health, opposition from others and difficulties that may seem impossible to overcome. There can be deception and manipulation. There may be struggle to overcome the financial difficulties. There may also be some emotional or mental turmoil in some of our lives. There may be a feeling of separation from home or a homely atmosphere. The good news is this opposition is going to get over by middle of August. Meanwhile it will be best to keep calm, develop patience and have lower expectations from life.
Wish you all stay safe! May God bless us all!
