Try this:

Option Explicit

Sub ArrangeGroups()
    Dim iLoop As Integer, Month As Integer
    For iLoop = 2 To 13
        Month = DatePart("M", Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(iLoop, 3).Value)
        If Month < 7 Then
            Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(iLoop, 5).Value = "X"
            Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(iLoop, 6).Value = "X"
        End If
End Sub
