Your Weekly Horoscope: Fire Energy Takes Over
July 8 – July 14, 2019
After Mercury turning retrograde last week, things are already a little shaky. But with some intense aspects happening at the beginning of the week and on Thursday, it'll be best to think before we speak and refrain from making decisions too quickly.
Things get interesting on Monday as Venus (planet of love) angles toward Uranus (planet of rebellion) to bring surprises and exciting encounters. Conversations could be quite animated, filled with lots of movement and things to say, as Mercury (planet of communication) and Mars (planet of passion) merge.
That same day, Chiron (healing) turns retrograde in the fire sign of Aries and remains so until December 13.
On Tuesday, you may be met with obstacles as the sun (planet of self) opposes Saturn (planet of foundation). You may be feeling as though you have a lot to catch up on in terms of personal progress. But rather than try to force the pace, it might be better to relax and go with the flow.
Midweek, we’ll see the sun also linking to Neptune (planet of illusion), which could inspire random acts of kindness. They may be small, but they can have powerful effect on others.
By Thursday, you’ll want to hold back on making impulsive moves, as Mars angles toward Uranus.
Finally, the sun opposes Pluto (planet of transformation) on Sunday, which could inspire a decision toward positive change.
Here’s how the planets will affect your sign this week.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
At the beginning of the week, you could meet someone from your past that you’re excited to reconnect with. Thursday’s transits though, could get you in trouble as it might stir your desire to rebel. In general this week, you may want to stay in a couple nights this week so you can recharge your batteries. You have a lot going on lately, just relax.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Overall this week, there’s an emphasis on your communication zones in caring Cancer, which may give you the finesse and ease to resolve certain issues with others—except when it comes to an issue later in the week. Monday may see you prepping to Marie-Kondo your space, and hoping to get the rest of your family on board as well. Be prepared for some tension on Thursday, Taurus, as your ideas may not be as well-received as you’d hoped.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Money is going to be a big focus here, Gemini. On Monday, if you have a hunch about an idea of how to bring in more consistent cash, go with it. However, Tuesday might bring a temporary stop in money flow. You could run into someone from your past this week, but you’ll be super happy to reconnect with them. Lastly, we know you may have tried really hard to be good with your money this week Gemini, but as much as you want to congratulate yourself, this weekend will not be the best time to spend it.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
After the solar eclipse last week, with a heavy focus in your sign, you’re feeling even more empowered to be yourself these days. With such confidence, you can accomplish anything this week. The midweek Neptune/sun aspect might make things a little overwhelming for you so it could be nice to do a quick getaway. Thursday is a good day to do something out-of-the-box, while Sunday it would be best not to listen to a person who’s persuading you to do something.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You may be asking yourself a lot of life questions this week as your spiritual sector is being taken over by both the planet of foundation, Saturn, and the planet of transformation, Pluto. It might be worth your while to reflect on what needs to change in your life. Mars in Leo may have you feeling extra energized to make moves on plans or activities.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You might be feeling extra social this week, Virgo (and maybe even romantic!). While you and your friends may disagree on something this week, and there may be a touch of jealousy involved, but in the long run you’ll be glad you all got together. If you want to go on a date this week, Wednesday would be the perfect night.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You may link up with someone on Monday that shares the perfect solution to a problem with a project that you’ve been trying to figure out. This week continues with the trend of family issues, Libra. You’re being consistently challenged to fulfill your responsibilities at home which is making you distracted. You may get an invite to an event this week, but it may not go as well as you hope.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
This week, Scorpio, you’re being challenged to explore new experiences but you’re also feeling very comfortable in your routine. It might be good to bring in a professional, such as a life coach, to help you understand what to keep and what to change in your habits. With Mars traveling through your sector of goals, though, this week is the perfect time to take action.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The sun travels through your zones of finance and personal growth this week, Sagittarius. So if you’ve been having difficulty at work or with your bank account, this week and next will be a good time to investigate why that’s happening. Try to find new ways to consider these issues and make sure you’re seeing the big picture as you do.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
When it comes to your relationships, there could be tension this week. And it might be up to you to make a compromise or sacrifice. As you get bogged down in serious discussions and different viewpoints, the start of the week might see you connecting with someone who has more of a lighter perspective to offer. Later in the week, you may feel tempted to simply walk away. If you do Capricorn, you’ll regret it.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You’ve been feeling a little out of sorts lately, as your daily routines seem to continually slip onto the unhealthier side of the spectrum. While getting consistent exercise is a start, this week is really going to hinge upon your ability to rid yourself of those comforting habits that are not healthy for you (you know what they are, Aquarius). Thursday will be the hardest day of the week for you, as the Mars/Uranus aspect is making you feel really restless. Keep those impulses on lock down—you’ll be just fine without giving into them.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Stand your ground this week, Pisces. There may be people who are vying for your precious time. Just remember that it’s up to you how you want to spend it. This pressuring energy could continue over the next couple weeks, so try to make firm boundaries. Lastly, this is a great week to dive into a new workout routine.
