Weekly Horoscopes (07/16-07/22)

We are in the midst of the transformational energy of Eclipse season.

The Solar Eclipse in Cancer last week left some of us wide open and deeper into our feels than ever. If only it would have come with a “may cause self-pity, increased sensitivity and acute comparison to others” warning.

This week, we aren’t done with the emotion or reclusive tendencies, as it is still Cancer season and Eclipse energy straddles far beyond the actual minute of its occurrence.

Just as I needed to wash all of my dishes, clean my kitchen and burn some incense to really sit down and give my all to these horoscopes, now is the time for you to also “clean house.” Below I give you some places to begin your examination, but there may be a longer process that is needed to really finish the job. Read the weekly horoscope for your Sun, Moon and Rising signs below to see what I mean.

Cancer

(June 22-July 22)

How ya’ healing from that Eclipse last week? Do you feel washed ashore or did it pull you out to sea? Either way, now is not the time to wallow or wish away your experience. To really make something happen this Eclipse season is to embrace radical presence and face whatever is floating to the surface. There are no major transits for this week until Sunday when the Sun moves into Leo. Your solar return has started, Cancer. Use this last week of your season to take back control over what you allow to happen in your life. If you find yourself unsatisfied with any situation in your life, ask yourself “Is this what I think I deserve?” If the answer is no, then why are you tolerating it? Whether it is your income, relationship status or living situation, it’s time to take your power back and reset your situation.

 

Leo

(July 23-Aug. 22)

The Solar Eclipse hit a hidden part of your chart but what’s going on in your life may have felt more obvious than ever. Cancer season tests the waters of your subconscious to see what trauma, doubt and self-limiting beliefs still lurk behind closed doors. If the Eclipse rocked you, it’s time to clean your closet. As much as humans like to believe that we have everything figured out, we don’t. Our beliefs, whether about science, philosophy, faith or religion, are all subjective but are still all responsible for shaping our reality. It is your job to opt for beliefs that support a loving, abundant and ever-expansive version of the way life works. Anything in conflict with this understanding will always hinder your ability to succeed. This week, take a look at what you put your faith in and why you choose to believe the things you do and be willing to make big adjustments to the beliefs that don’t and won’t make you feel that you are always on your way to living your healthiest and happiest life.

 

Virgo

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The Solar Eclipse spotlighted the part of your chart the governs how you relate to others on a community-based level. It may have rattled your friendships, brought you closer to someone you never expected or put more distance between you and those you don’t agree with. Your ability to compartmentalize and distance yourself based on your values is remarkable, but this will always get you into trouble when you become rigid and unwilling to see other people’s side of the story. This eclipse season, see where you have fostered unnecessary judgement or division in your life. Who or what have you distanced yourself from out of simple lack of interest in seeking common ground. As much as you might hate to admit it, you need other people just as much as they need you. Use this time to smooth out any unnecessary tension or disdain so that your way forward is clear of any superficial interpersonal obstacles. You have much to gain by facing the music and much to lose by taking a winding road of avoidance.

 

Libra

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This Eclipse season can be used for major re-configuration of who you are socially. You often rely on others opinions and perspectives, and you sometimes leave little room for coming to your own conclusions. The legacy you leave this lifetime has to be centered around what you think, want, believe and stand for. To do this, you must learn to stand for yourself; to set proper boundaries and to recognize when other people are mistaking your kindness for naivete. You are an incredibly strong and capable individual, Libra. Once you create systems that help you remain aligned with what you want in the long-run instead of what will do for now, you will start to see a shift in your energy. Your only responsibility is to yourself and the message you want the world to receive from you. Focus on what it means to live your values by clearing out any habits or relationships that make you feel disempowered or any less than the star you are (no explanation needed).

 

Scorpio

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If new travel opportunities or chances to expand your understanding of culture and philosophy have presented themselves to you, take them. The universe is offering you a chance to further your potential, reach and intelligence. Eclipse season hangs out in the places in your chart that highlight your perception of yourself vs. how the world sees and receives you. It’s time to get grounded in the former so the latter becomes a non-issue. You have a very active and perceptive psyche that has endless possibilities for growth and development. Right now, treasure experiences that remind you of who you are, especially if they are experiences that teach you what you are not. You are in a time of definition and refinement. Embrace all paths that lead to ideas, people and places that both excite and challenge you.

 

Sagittarius

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The Solar Eclipse may have revealed some things you still need to heal. Whether the message was gentle or extreme, it is important that you listen. The eighth house of your chart (where the Solar Eclipse occured) represents the flow of life cycles. Any pain from the past that is showing up now is merely a reminder of how far you have come and that you have reached a new cycle that you must enter with as clean a slate as possible. Healing is not always linear, quick or easy but your task is only to get the process started. Be kind to yourself and cushion the process by only taking on what you know deserves your energy. Reach out for support in whatever way feels best to you, if you need it. There is something huge on the horizon and a major shift in your philosophical understanding of yourself and the world is on its way. Don’t shy away from what you can do now to make things easier for yourself in the future.

Capricorn

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Relationships starting, ending and changing are all part of this Eclipse season energy for you, Capricorn. While you aren’t the biggest fan of confrontation or big, abrupt change, know that anything that seems to be slipping through your fingers was never really meant for you to hold in the first place. Anything or anyone that doesn’t allow you to be your fullest self, or better yet, evolve, will start to fade, now. Your biggest ally in this time is your patience. Trust the process and know that you are exactly where you are suppose to be and who you were meant to be with along the way will start to become obvious. Big things are coming for you that may start to show themselves or may need you to do some clearing before they come. Enjoy what is arriving and know that what is on it’s way is well worth the wait.

 

Aquarius

(Jan. 20-Feb.18)

This week is your break between the Solar Eclipse in Cancer and the Lunar Eclipse in your own sign. To use this week to apply whatever lesson came up the last Eclipse (July 12th) would be a wise move. The energy of the 12th permeated the spaces of your life that require routine and consistency. It is, again, important for you to look at the ways that the actions you take everyday are consciously aligned with what you want in the long term. For example, if you want a strong, healthy body in the long term you may practice yoga or some sort of strengthening exercises everyday to help you get there or maintain what you have. If you want friends that support you and show up for you, how are you making daily moves to reciprocate or initiate this kind of bond? Think about your priorities and then look back at your daily routines to spot any misalignment in need of a tune-up. The Eclipse in your first house on the 27th will prove to be much more powerful for manifestation if your daily life already contains the kinds of behaviors, patterns and relationships that you want to amplify.

 

Pisces

(Feb.19-March 20)

Lunar activity in your fellow water sign will always send you ripples from the waves that they experienced. The only difference is that the subtlety with which your change comes might make it hard for you to harness and use it. The Solar Eclipse eclipsed your 5th house of passion and creativity. It is time to turn your attention to what lights you up, Pisces! What opportunity, platform, partner or experience would make you feel validated, excited and engaged? And why? Discover where your desires come from and who in your life and in the world at large has the power to make them reality. This is the first step in bringing them to life. The second is to get serious about your own happiness and drop at least one thing that you won’t need where you’re headed. It could be cancelling a subscription you no longer see the use in, downsizing your clothing or accessory collection to only things you love or doing this with your relationships. Regardless, now is the time to take action in the name of falling in love with the life you live.

 

Aries

(March 21-April 19)

Your astrological house of home and family was the stomping ground for the Eclipse on the 12th. Thinking about moving, changing up your space, getting a new roommate or refinancing your house? The inclination came from a cosmic spark. The only thing to watch out for during this time is your haste. Decisions that concern where you lay your head to rest are a big deal. Try not to jeopardize your safety or security on a whim or out of pure boredom. Look for the deeper answers as to what itch you are trying to scratch by making any changes you want to implement before setting anything in stone. Eclipse season shifts are about longevity. Surround yourself with people that remind you of who you are and what you stand for so that you can make decisions informed from a place of satisfaction, love and honesty.

 

Taurus

(April 20-May 20)

Activity in your third house from the Eclipse may have your mind abuzz. Try your best to channel all that’s on your mind into creative projects and ideas. Write things down, make vision boards and place your wishes in places you can see them daily. You are a couple of months into your Solar Return and are starting to get a feel for what the energy of this year will be like. It often takes you a minute to settle into new ways of moving. Visible reminders and situating your space in such a way that your creative work is supported is crucial to quickening the process. Find some supplies that will help you to execute your visions in sensually appealing ways and commit to the process of watching your wishes unfold before you, no matter how messy it may be.

 

Gemini

(May 21-June 21)

Recently make a big move to secure your stability? Find a new way to make money or pay off debt? Or, do you feel as confused about how to create a stable foundation in your life than ever? If you answered “yes” to any of the above, thank the Solar Eclipse. Your second house’s illumination on the 12th may have brought you many blessings or dropped a disaster in your lap. Either way, the energy is trying to tell you that something needs to change. If you just came into some kind of prosperity or stable situation, the lesson is not to question it. As much as it sounds cute and coincidental that good things just fall into your lap, hardly anything is without meaning around Eclipse season. If you have fallen into good fortune, you have earned it and this should be a confirmation of your worthiness. If you feel like something has gone wrong, take another look at the situation from a different perspective and see how you can move different to start to get different results. As Cancer season comes to a close, the closer you get to some sort of security. So, make sure that you are counting and not blocking your blessings as they come.
