Your Knitting Horoscope for July 2017
Find some great patterns, tools, and ideas for your knitting in July, according to your zodiac sign’s horoscope for the month.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Balance and flexibility are key for Cancer this month. Whether it’s balancing your career and family, or the several WIPs you have on your needles, make sure you are able to stay level-headed in order to follow through on your plans. This could be a good time to get out ahead of holiday gift-planning for family, friends, and coworkers—you can never start early enough!
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Suggestion: Lisa’s List: Tips for Teaching Kids to Knit
Shift your focus from personal success to family and emotional stability. This is a good time to foster teamwork, and rather than take action on personal items, work on projects or tasks that help everyone grow. Facilitate some knitting and crafting time with family, especially the young ones, to foster a positive, cooperative, and loving environment.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
July 2017 is the perfect time for Virgo to finish important professional projects and use free time to reflect on and analyze your career to this point. It’s time to create the perfect vision of your life and either find a more desirable path, or double down on what you’re currently doing. Perhaps a career in selling your knitted goods is calling . . .
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Suggestion: Serape Shawl Pattern
Stay headstrong in your pursuits this month and don’t let others influence you to do anything any other way than your own. Try to give equal focus to personal pursuits, family, and love. Knit something challenging and maybe a little out-of-the-ordinary for yourself or someone who has been asking for a handknit goody from you for years.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Suggestion: How to Knit Demystified
Saturn and Mars have heavy influence on Scorpio’s professional life and health this month, and you might be feeling a little distant from some who are normally close to you. Make sure you take care of the basics and all else will follow. Find a beginner or easy project to zone out on.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Suggestion: Start Your Own Knit Night
Family and emotional issues are sore spots right now, giving Sagittarius a chance to focus heavily on professional pursuits in July. Cooperation, teamwork, and a general adaptability will greatly help you this month, and Saturn’s position will have a positive effect on your health and finances. Use your resources and energy to host a knit night, class, or yarn shop crawl with your local knitting community.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Suggestion: Knitting Courses, in General
It’s a great time to collaborate—no need to go it alone right now. Capricorn should utilize your heightened personal attraction in July to get lots of work done on big projects and creative endeavors with any help that might come along the way. Conquer a knitting technique fear with the help of a great teacher.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Suggestion: Garter Stitch Revival
Your confidence might be low this month. It’s time to go with the flow and not fight unsettled feelings. If you focus your energies on social time with family and friends, and meet some new people, you can keep the stress at bay. Remember the therapeutic benefits that knitting has during stressful times.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Suggestion: Pinch Hat pattern
Keep your career on the back burner this month and focus on your psychological and domestic concerns. Now is not a time for huge change for Pisces, but a focus on stability. It’s a good time to take a step back, and perhaps knit a favorite classic project that doesn’t require a ton of brain power, but can bring you back to center.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Suggestion: What’s Your Fiber Spirit Animal?
Whether it’s moving, changing jobs, or something seemingly smaller, you may be having tough time adapting to a new situation. Focus on cooperation this month and don’t do anything bold or brash in reaction. And don’t get stressed about your WIP!
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Suggestion: Star of the East Knitted Afghan pattern
The stars are not aligning in the career realm this month, so put your energy and efforts toward family and home life. Knit something for your home to create an open and welcoming space.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Suggestion: Interweave Escapes Oregon
It’s a good time for academic pursuits and intellectual expansion. Continue your education in the classroom or by traveling, and perhaps even learning another language. Find a knitting retreat near or far to create new life experiences and hone your knowledge.
