Weekly Horoscopes (07/08-07/14)


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!

As the lessons from last week’s Eclipse settle, this week’s Astrology takes us on a roller coaster ride. We are all being pushed to transform and use the information we’ve been given over the last two weeks to guide where and how we set our new boundaries.

Read the horoscopes for your rising, Sun, and Moon signs for some insight into what the planets may be nudging you to address in your life, right now.

(June 22-July 22)

You’re not the same person you were at the beginning of last week. What has changed for you? What are you no longer tolerating or participating in? What new identities are you claiming? What are the biggest barriers you’re coming up against on this journey? When you move more into your power, the people around you may not understand it or know how to support you. If you need to be alone, right now, while you continue to figure things out and become confident in what you want and why, take that space. The only person who will be negatively impacted by you shying away from this work is you.



(July 23-Aug. 22)

Mercury is now retrograde in your sign, which means right now is more about listening and receiving than speaking and reacting. In what conversations and in what friendships, relationships, etc, have you been most loud in? How can you take a step back and offer others the opportunity to take up space? This isn’t about you silencing yourself, but taking a different approach to garner different results and unlock new wisdom within you that can only come from taking a step back and being willing to listen and learn.



(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your planet Mercury is now retrograde and this week is all about moving in silence. What happens when you don’t talk an idea to death, ask a million people for their opinion on it, and exhaust yourself planning it and trying to perfect it before you even get to work? Retrograde season is all about trial and error. There is no “perfect” and drowning yourself in a bunch of information and outside perspective on a manner is not going to help you execute an idea more authentically. Let yourself dive right in and practice holding the possibility of failure, this week.



(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Nothing may be really going “as planned,” in your life right now. This is happening in order to mirror back to you your own adaptability and innate responses. What is your usual response when something falls through or didn’t go as planned? How do you let it impact the rest of your life and relationships? Is this the kind of response you want to have? If not, this is your week to really work on fine-tuning your relationship to chaos and disappointment, all the way down to how you define them in your life.



(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

There is lots of growth and movement available to you, right now, but you’re hesitating. What is keeping you playing small and scared? What are you worried people will see or find out about you when you step into the light? It’s time to face whatever it is that keeps you tethered to your stagnancy. You have so much to offer the world, and you are doing the world a disservice by keeping it to yourself. Face your fears so that you can move on and up and help other people like you see themselves and step into their light.



(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This week, the need to bring more air and expansion into your life will become apparent. In order to grow you have to have room. Where in your life do you feel stifled? What aspects of your life do you feel need more space? This could be needing to book your days with less “to-dos” to give your overall life more breathing room, it could mean you need more space and time between when someone asks you to do something and when you respond to them/make a commitment, etc. Whatever your personal list of things is, list all of the reasons why you deserve to have what you’re asking for, too. 



(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Things may feel rather dark and lonely, this week, if you don’t find a way to keep the faith. When things feel hard or dark in your life, what usually helps you find the light? What kinds of conversations, rituals, shows, experiences, etc guide you to a new perspective? On the flip side, what habits, people, etc dig you deeper into the feelings of loss or confusion? Hopefully, reflecting on these things will help you shorten your bounce-back time and form a plan for how to take on anything this Eclipse season throws at you with more trust and ease. 



(Jan. 20-Feb.18)

In what ways have your actions not been aligned with your intentions, lately? Where do you feel you aren’t really “walking your talk”? These are the areas these Eclipses and this week wants you to address. Leave the shame and judgement for why you have been slacking on this alignment, lately, at the door and celebrate yourself for being willing to do the work, now. How you want to feel is just on the other side of this strategic self-work.



(Feb.19-March 20)

What are you wanting to offer or give people, right now? Is this list of things in conflict with what you have been giving, lately? Have you been giving more or less than you have capacity for? Just your energy and presence are enough to help heal a room. You don’t have to extend yourself to great heights to prove your worth or usefulness, and if you do this, you may take on unneeded bitterness and resentment. Keep this from happening by checking in with the questions above as often as necessary.



(March 21-April 19)

This week, it may seem like none of your old tactics for getting what you want are working, anymore. When you want something from someone or from a situation, how do you communicate? How does this desire impact/change your behaviour? Are these forms of persuasion or manifestation still working for you? If not, how can you change your approach? Plentiful opportunities and chances to grow and expand lie on the other side of this transformation and self-awareness.



(April 20-May 20)

The shifts within you are creating some sensitivity that will feel easy to take out on other people. What seems to be really annoying you about other people and the world, lately? How are these things a reflection of parts of you now, or who you’ve been in the past? Can this new resonance help you to find compassion? Investing too much time and energy in being agitated is a waste. This week, see if you can quickly identify how, what, and why something rubs you the wrong way and either choose to be a mirror, or walk away.



(May 21-June 21)

A retrograde for your ruling planet means things may feel a bit hazy and confusing, right now. This is a push for you to set your sights on what feels really good and clear and let the things that feel hard work themselves out. Where are you feeling the most momentum and least resistance in your life, currently? What feels pleasurable and productive to focus on? It’s okay to let your foot off the gas and coast for a second. You can get back to pushing when things begin to settle again.
