Weekly Horoscopes for 7/15-7/21, 2019
Aries- As the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde pass through your House of Home and Foundations this week to oppose both Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon in your House of Career, the demands of public life could end up putting an undue amount of pressure on your domestic sphere. Pay attention to someone close who you’ve been neglecting as of late and try to make the time to at least let them know you’ve been thinking of them (have you?). Mars in your House of Creativity is at the tail end of its square to crazy old Uranus in your House of Self Worth so be vigilant about losing sight of the forest for the trees and believing that whatever is going on in your life is the center of the universe. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Philosophy is trying to point out that you’ve made this sort of self-absorbed mistake before so the likelihood of being forgiven for it by people you’ve overlooked in the past is slim at best. Try and be considerate.
Taurus- The dilemma this week will be about what you need to say to someone as opposed to what you think they can hear without being offended. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Communication will have you feeling a need to be gentle with this individual, however, with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde plus a Full Moon in your House of Philosophy and the no nonsense sign of Capricorn, you know full well that if you water down your message to this person you will be making it easy for them to ignore something that would be in their best interests to acknowledge. So what to do? Should you play the safe short game of “yessing” them to death or do you risk what is perhaps a fair weather friendship by telling them the unadulterated truth? Mars still being in orb to a square with Uranus could having you feeling very anxious about this, although Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation could help you learn from your mistakes and choose telling the truth as opposed to pretending otherwise.
Gemini- With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde all in your House of Self Worth and the sensitive sign of Cancer, you could be feeling especially vulnerable this week, particularly with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde as well as a Full Moon all lining up in your House of Transformation to remind you that responsibility is a fact of life and as of late you have been severely lacking in that category. As Mars in your House of Communication moves closer to Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnership, you will probably feel convinced that you can just palm off any crap you want on anyone and they’ll accept it because of the high opinion you assume people have of you, well, get over yourself. If you’ve done something wrong there will be a reckoning, although with 5 retrograde planets now it may take a minute but it’s coming. My advice, stop doubling down and try apologizing…….It may be too little too late but at least it’s something.
Cancer- As both Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon pass through your House of Relationships and oppose the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your sign, you are likely witnessing some of the associations in your life changing in some very unexpected ways. Perhaps someone you always thought was against you is actually neutral and could now be swinging to your side, or maybe you’re not the person you once were and some long standing grudges are just not worth the effort anymore? Either way, as Mars moves through your House of Self Worth and gets closer to a beneficial alignment with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work it would definitely be to your advantage now to take the high road and leave any counterproductive or petty squabbles in the past. With 5 retrograde planets at this time the focus should be on review, so look back at all the times you may have shot yourself in the foot by going off half-cocked and instead try to make sure the safety is on your temper this week before you go wielding it about self-righteously, or worse, insecurely. Your time is coming if you believe in yourself……Tough question, huh?
Leo- You know the story about the splinter in the Lion’s paw don’t you? With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde all behind the scenes in the sensitive sign of Cancer it’s probably time for you to stop feeling hurt by something that happened in the past and either address the perpetrator or let that shit go. Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon in your House of Daily Routines would suggest that any underlying depression over this matter has not only put you in a long term funk but may also be affecting your health. Mars in your sign should give you all the courage you need to either face this issue, especially as the God of War pulls closer to a beneficial aspect with regal Jupiter in your House of Creativity and Fun. What’s that trite New Age saying? Oh yeah, “Don’t sweat the small stuff; and it’s all small stuff.” If you can manage to control your gag reflex for a second and think about what I just wrote, you might realize that for you right now this is absolutely true!
Virgo- As Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon pass through your House of Creativity to oppose the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Groups, something you have been dreaming of and working towards since forever could finally get the helping hand it needs! Mars behind the scenes in the proud sign of Leo has just passed out of a volatile square with rebellious Uranus in your House of Philosophy and will soon be moving into a beneficial aspect with Jupiter retrograde in your Foundations area, meaning that if you feel you deserve this break then make sure you make the most of it. Of course you could be just telling yourself you deserve it, but then again if you’re doing that then what did you believe in the first place if it wasn’t your eventual success? I know this sounds confusing, but success is a psychological state rather than a material one- and if you don’t believe me then just think about how many times you complained about something only because you happened to be bored? Scary thought, isn’t it?
Libra- Sometimes the difficulties we encounter in life are more about a necessary evolution rather than our having made any sort of mistake. As the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde march across your House of Career, expect a breakthrough in regards to something that has been holding you back despite your hard work. Saturn and Pluto retrograde plus a Full Moon going through your House of Career have been stunting your professional growth for a while now, yet realize that if you’re ever going to move forward it will have to be as a new version of yourself and not the part of you that has felt isolated and bored over the last few months. Mars going through your House of Dreams and Jupiter retrograde going through your House of Communication could see you getting a second wind as well as some inspiration as you rediscover the sort of excitement you had back in the day when you were hungry and a believer. Hallelujah!
Scorpio- Rebuilding takes time and since you’ve been investing in yourself for a while now expect to see some dividends coming up in the near future. Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon in your House of Communication opposing the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Philosophy could see you having an effect on others at this time that could be quite surprising. Have you ever heard the saying, “Healer, heal thyself?” Well, over the past months you’ve been doing just that, so don’t be shocked if others start looking to you as someone who just might have some answers to their little dilemmas. Of course the only real answer to many of our problems is to be patient and forgive ourselves, but since you’ve already done that, don’t be surprised if you inadvertantly end up being someone’s guru, whether you like it or not. Just keep in mind not to take yourself to seriously and simply enjoy this new sense of well being…….Namaste.
Sagittarius- The question now is not how badly do you want to change, but rather how much will you let yourself change? There could be a whole host of reasons for an unwillingness to transform yourself, but I think for you it might have something to do with letting go of your perceived faults as well as with your sense of self worth. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde are all passing through your House of Death and Transformation and the emotional sign of Cancer, while in opposition to this sensitive trio are both Saturn and Pluto retrograde as well as a Full Moon in your House of Self Worth. You can be much too hard on yourself and though this is not a hot flash from the newsroom it is something that one can get used too with insidious results. Realize that self-criticism is not about what you’ve done, it’s about an unwillingness to give yourself a chance to try. Mars moving now through your House of Philosophy is about to align with Jupiter retrograde in your sign, meaning that the mental part of this process needs to stop and the doing part must begin. Endeavor to walk that walk my friend and you might just end up somewhere.
Capricorn- The Full Moon in your sign this week is about nothing if not practicality and as it opposes the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships make an effort to get out there and contribute something to either the community or someone you might know that’s in need. If you’ve been feeling disconnected at all from life reaching out may be just what the doctor ordered. Don’t underestimate the power of love to go around and then come around at double the investment. Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes will add an air of nobility to your intentions to do well and as he comes into a beneficial alignment with Mars in your House of Transformation and the proud sign of Leo, the love you take will no doubt at this time be equal to the love you make. To quote this guy currently running for POTUS, “Not Me US.” See the big picture.
Aquarius- You pride yourself on taking care of others but are you strong enough to let someone take care of you? The Full Moon behind the scenes in responsibility driven Capricorn will have you judging yourself not only on what you’ve done, but also on what you’re not doing, while on the other side of the zodiac the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde will be posing the unavoidable question you only ask yourself secretly, “when will someone take care of me?” We’re back to the strength question again and with Mars in fiery Leo passing through your House of Relationships and moving into alignment with compassionate Jupiter in your House of Groups, strength for you at this time won’t be about being a leader but trusting your intuition enough to be a follower and feel that you’re not being weak. Oh the complicated webs we weave……
Pisces- With both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Dreams and a Full Moon arriving there this week you will have a lot of responsibilities falling on your shoulders now and no doubt you’re whining about it like a petulant child, however, have you also realized how lucky you are? At the same time all these challenges are gathering at your door step, the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde are all partying in your House of Creativity and the nurturing sign of Cancer, meaning that if help isn’t right at hand it’s well within your grasp if you’re willing to be at all enterprising. Mars transiting now through your House of Health should give you plenty of energy and as he moves into alignment with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career it would probably be a good idea to focus on some form of routine that not only strengthens your body but also disciplines your mind. With erratic Uranus on an extended visit in your House of Thinking, practicing some form of meditation may be just what you need to unleash some really powerful latent creativity.
