Weekly Horoscope: July 15th – 21st, 2019
This week starts off with a lunar eclipse in Capricorn and ends with Mercury, in retrograde, going into Cancer. Hay pues!
Will the drama ever end? No, not really! 😄
We are working on integrating the balance between inner conflict and outward expression. How you move through the world is mediated by how you feel about your place within it. Let’s work on it.
You’re due for a raise, Aries. The lunar eclipse this week is happening in your 10th house of career, drive, and ambition, so I know you’re looking forward to stepping into some more opportunities. Call it in. Before the lunar eclipse hits on Tuesday, make your intentions know to yourself, first and foremost. Make it clear to those around you that you want to reach for something more, and fight for the opportunity to do so, whatever it is.
The rest of this week will be spent on integrating that new work into your home life. You’re not feeling social right now, and that’s ok, just make sure you make your home life pleasant and abundant. Take the time you need to feel grounded in your individuality.
You are discovering how much opportunity for love and reciprocity there is in your world right now, Taurus. Dig deep into your ability to recognize the community and friendships you have around you at this time. They will help ground you and support you when you’re feeling stressed, which you definitely might be, this week.
The lunar eclipse is in your 9th house, so I’ll give you this warning: don’t do anything out of pocket when you’re feeling really up. The 9th house rules travel and expansion, and with this much energy focused in one place, you might feel like suddenly trying to get out of town or launching into a completely new job or career. But don’t jump ship. Reflect on your current aspirations with friends and family first before making any major changes.
Let it go, let it go, let it go, Gemini. This lunar eclipse is your opportunity to recognize that you have the power to transform your life. Not your partner, not your friends, not your community, and not the conflicts you’re still holding on to. You like to define yourself by your ability to move through space and meet new people with ease, but that makes you dependent on being liked and appreciated by those around you.
It’s time to redefine yourself and recognize that you can still be you, even if no one else recognizes you in this moment. Don’t get so caught up with how other people see you or think of you. Let it go. Focus on your own sense of integrity and character. That’s what needs development right now.
Just because things aren’t exactly perfect doesn’t mean that they aren’t working, dear Cancer. This lunar eclipse is putting a lot of pressure on your relationships – at work, at home, romantic, and social. You’re working out how to show up in your relationships while maintaining a sense of individuality and self-support, and it’s grating on you.
But don’t get so worked up about it! You’re doing this work in order to manage your own time and energy in a better way, and it’s going to be worth it. Don’t be afraid to say no to invitations if you need some alone time, speak up if you don’t like certain behaviors in the people around you, or take some of your energy and devote it to growing your own career. You’re worth it.
Lean into your capacity to love this week, Leo. Love the people in your life, love your partner or boos, love your friends and community, and love your family. But I will give you this one warning: don’t spread that love too thin. Venus is transiting your 12th house and giving a huge boost to your capacity to devote yourself to others, but you have to balance this by being mindful of your own mental health and personal boundaries.
Take care to show up correct, fully present, with energy and heart. You feel like you need to do a lot for others right now, and they’ll definitely take your energy, but you have to make sure you’re not doing too much and tapping yourself out. You don’t owe anybody your time. That is because your worth lies within your ability to take care of your own heart.
You really have such a limited time to enjoy when things are just exactly right: right friends, right weather, right ambiance, right party. But this is the right week to sit back and take it in. Take in all the blessings you have in your life right now and take in your ability to share those blessings with others. Things are just simply not that enjoyable unless you have someone to share them with.
So, take this week to share your joy with others—this can be a new boo, some old friends, family that you haven’t seen in a while, or people you just met last night. But do focus on sharing what you love over focusing on what you wish you had. The only way to call in more blessings is to appreciate the ones you have baby.
Don’t worry Libra, your star is shining brightly right now in the career realm, and that’s where your focus should be too. Focus your energy on your own personal advancement and creative endeavors right now. That’s where you need to put the drive for this week’s energy into practice.
There’s a high chance you might get distracted by a romantic relationship, and I’m telling you—this will not lead down a good path. Make sure to prioritize your future over romance right now. You’ll definitely be able to work out the rough patch in your romantic life later on, but you won’t get the opportunity to grow into this new role for a minute. Choose wisely.
You need to hit the refresh button. Get out of town, take a new class, go out with some friends, and get a fresh perspective. You’re getting a little stuck on a certain plan that isn’t unfolding the way you thought it would. But you know what? This one is out of your control for a week.
So, take a break. Take some of the pressure off whatever it is that feels intense right now. Whether that is your relationship, job, career, or friends. Whatever feels overwhelming, don’t try to address it directly right now, while you’re still feeling pressed. Instead, take a break, walk away to gain some perspective, and come back next week.
Girl, you are going to be ok. You are worthy of exactly the type of wealth and life you are yearning for. You deserve all the slices of pie, all the stable housing, all the good paying jobs, and all the lovely friendships and collaborators. Things are being tossed up right now because there was a lot of stagnant patterns that needed to be released.
But things will start turning soon, so get ready. This eclipse month marks the beginning of the end of all the re-organizing and re-working happening in your chart. Jupiter, your ruler, goes direct next month and you will feel the switch. But for this week, focus on the resources you want to call in. Know that you are worthy and deserving of receiving exactly what it is you crave. So go on and manifest that shit.
Ok, if you were waiting for the right time to ask out your crush, this is the week to do it Cap. I know you’re feeling the influence of Venus in your 7th house—namely, a hard emphasis on your romantic life, or lack of it—so you have had love on the mind. The lunar eclipse this week happens in your 1st house of will and drive, which will give you the drive you need to make it happen.
So, stop sitting around wondering whether you should go for it, whether they have shown enough interest, or whether they would actually like attention from you. Make it happen: go for it now. Alternatively, and obviously, if you already have a boo or boos: take them out on a special date this week. Make it romantic. Bust out the flowers.
Take it easy this week, babe. The lunar eclipse is going to bring up the feelings of being lost, overwhelmed, under-appreciated, and inadequate. This isn’t so that you can get lost in the feels and believe the message. No, this is so you can move past these worries and into a better appreciation of your own self and what you have to offer.
Instead of getting lost in the self-deprecation that may come in, focus on your relationships at work instead. Notice how good you are with people, how you delegate tasks accordingly, how your thoughtfulness and dedication to your practice enlivens those around you. Focus on the asset you are to your company instead of the little faults that make you feel worthless. Change that story.
I see a bit of frustration happening this week, Pisces. It’s no secret that you’re a bit more sensitive than most, so the lunar eclipse and mercury retrograde are sure to make an impact on you. I can see an increase in energy for you. It will spur your creative side, the romance, as well as the drive to have fun and feel free. But this Venusian influence is opposed by the full moon, bringing some frustration and blocks.
What needs to happen is that instead of seeing all the blocks to your expression as happening outside of you, recognize that it is you that is actually holding you back. You’re not letting your own light to be expressed because you are stuck on it coming out exactly perfect: an impossible expectation. Release your expectations of yourself, of your loved ones, and on your output so you can feel more free.
