Weekly Horoscopes (07/15-07/21)

unnamed-2.jpg

New! I am changing the way horoscopes are done. Below you will see a comment box under each sign’s horoscope for the week. This box is for your own personal answers/immediate responses to the questions posed in the horoscope for that week; it could be how the content relates to you and where you currently are in your life, what you want to focus on this week, and/or how you’ll implement the information you just read.

This change is a response to the way I think horoscopes have become part of consumerist culture- read once and discarded, adding to all of the other noise on the internet that overloads our brains and never gets put to good use. This new form of interactive horoscopes is meant to create a space for you to stop, reflect, and set intentions for your week alongside a community. My content from here on out will be a product of what I learn from you through your answers each week. Join in below!

This week begins with the Lunar Eclipse, which marks the end of Eclipse season...for now. The Lunar Eclipse is in Capricorn and is centered around strategy, authenticity, and success.

On the same day, there is Venus-Saturn opposition that may put a strain on your relationships and make you feel misunderstood. We then experience a Venus-Neptune trine later in the week, followed by Mercury moving back into Cancer, and two big transits between Venus and Pluto and the Sun and Mercury on Sunday. 

Get ready for teary heart-to-hearts and big shifts in all of your connections. Know that all that is falling apart is supposed to be and is part of a larger plan. 

Read the horoscopes for your rising, Sun, and Moon signs for advice on how to meet any challenges that arise this week with as much self-awareness and foresight as possible.

Cancer

(June 22-July 22)

This Eclipse happens in your opposing sign and is here to mirror back to you how you see yourself. Your relationships exist as the clearest mirrors, right now. What kind of strain are you experiencing in your connections? What feels really good and flowing? What is irritating you about others? How are these things reflective of what’s going on in your inner world? How can they positively inform your perception? The more self-work you do, the more your relationships will improve and the more people who resonate with where you’re headed will find you.

Leo

(July 23-Aug. 22)

This week, for you, is about doing a bit of housekeeping. How have your routines and daily structures been serving you? Is there anything that feels monotonous or out-of-date with what your current needs are? What could you do to refresh how you maintain your daily life? Though they may seem small, the small stuff is what keeps your life together. Take honest stock of what habits you’ve been feeding and assess whether it’s time to change some things around.

Virgo

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

What you used to find pleasure and excitement in may not be conjuring the same reactions in you, anymore. This is a part of evolution. Instead of spending too much time grieving the loss of the old types of joy you used to love, get excited about finding what turns you on here and now. Let yourself explore and expand this week, not judging what comes up for you. Ask yourself: What kinds of colors, textures, tastes, visions, etc have really been speaking to me, lately? Which of these surprise me, and why? How can I integrate these new pleasures into my daily life?

Libra

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This Eclipse may be completely redefining what home and family look like to you, right now. Maybe you’re learning what you really need from your friends, or maybe you’re transitioning into a new physical space. Whatever the case may be, think through what brings you comfort in any given place or situation. What makes you feel safe? What kinds of behaviours, amenities, etc make it easier for you to settle into a new space or dynamic? Voice these needs to whoever you think may need to hear them.

Scorpio

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

There is a huge emphasis on information, community, and understanding for you, right now. It’s time to cut out all of the superfluous junk and really get to the heart of the messages you’ve been receiving, lately. What kinds of conversations do you keep having? What are your favorite topics to explore? What do people keep noticing and bringing up to you? And, what do these things reflect about what you should be paying more attention to and spending more time with? Once you figure it all out, make a plan for how you’ll block out the rest of the noise and focus in on what matters.

Sagittarius

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This Lunar Eclipse occuring in your second house asks you to take a look at where you’ve been letting money and the illusion of stability run the show. What have you deprived yourself from in favor of “saving,” recently? And what are you actually “saving” for? Monetary and energetic investments are what keep the same kind of abundance flowing back to you. Be careful that you are not just holding onto things (money, objects, energy, etc) out of fear. This week, decide where you want to initiate more flow, freedom, and reciprocity and make a plan-of-action to stick to.

Capricorn

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s your Eclipse, Capricorn, and it wants to restructure your relationship to yourself and your identity. Often, you act in accordance with your highest values and what you think is objectively “best.” But, what if you just acted for you? Where have you been too hard on yourself or too preoccupied with following “the rules”? Where can you give yourself a little bit more freedom to follow your feelings? If you don’t release some of the pressure on yourself, this Eclipse may push you to a breaking point. Ease any of that tension by remembering that you’re human and giving yourself some leeway to act like it. 

Aquarius

(Jan. 20-Feb.18)

This week is the time for you to learn how to trust, how to believe in your vision and the journey to it, even when you have no grasp on the logistics. It’s all about faith. Where are you able to find faith when things get uncertain? What does it mean to have faith in yourself? What is your perspective on “higher power”? These are the themes for your week and, truthfully, the next six months. This is your opportunity to let go of worry and anxiety about the “how” and just lean in to the process as it all unfolds before you.

Pisces

(Feb.19-March 20)

It’s your time to re-invest in community. What kinds of spaces, events, groups of people, etc, make you feel safe, seen and supported? What kind of people do you want to surround yourself with and see yourself reflected in? This is your week to really invest in making this kind of communion a reality. Pick three events or gatherings to go to, this week, and see those plans through. Then, reflect on how they made you feel and what you seem to get out of different spaces.

Aries

(March 21-April 19)

This Eclipse may bring any pressure you’ve been feeling to be “further along” than where you are to a head. Why do you feel such a rush? And what are you rushing to? The only reason you have an ominous destination is because you are using other people and their success as a measuring stick. This week, do as much as you can to block out anything that makes you feel small or less-than from your vision and stay in your lane. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Taurus

(April 20-May 20)

This Eclipse happens in your ninth house of knowledge, travel, and perspective and points to where you lack proper insight to graduate to the next level. Maybe it’s revealing that you’ve underestimated yourself, or that you need more education before you can feel confident in your delivery of certain information. What personal and professional lessons, concepts or ideas do you want to have learned by the next time these Eclipses roll back around in December? What ideas about the world and yourself do you want to have mastered? And how will you start that journey today?

Gemini

(May 21-June 21)

This Eclipse may bring some things to the absolute edge, and some to an all-out close, this week. The cycles that are ending now are creating fertile ground for new seeds to be planted and cultivated in the next six months. From a birds-eye view, what do you see is hanging by a thread in your life? What wants to exit? And what may not be ready to go, but needs to? Endings are hard for us all. This season isn’t about ease. Embrace the process of letting go as much as you can and know that there are far better things awaiting you on the other side of these difficult decisions.
