July will have you wanting to spend time with your loved ones, and you could feel a bit more emotional or introverted. Cancer season is ongoing until July 21, so for most of the month, you might be tending to home and family-related activities, such as seeing your relatives, bonding with your children, or making plans to move or redecorate. You may prefer to stay in and nest rather than going out and meeting a bunch of new people. In addition, you could be reflective of the past and your childhood.
