Weekly Horoscope: June 26 to July 2, 2023
On Monday, the past pays you a visit when thought-provoking Mercury (the great communicator) pairs up with nostalgic Cancer, sending you on a trip down memory lane. For the next couple of weeks, it’ll be easy to get stuck in the good old days, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the present.
On Thursday and Friday, the sun (our cosmic confidence booster) and big thinker Mercury, respectively, form trines to serious Saturn (our stellar teacher) in creative Pisces, helping you solve a lot of your outstanding problems. When you’re able to block out distractions and focus on important issues, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you find solutions. Getting advice from people you trust can also be helpful, but you’ll probably want to problem-solve on your own first.
Ethereal Neptune (the planetary dream weaver) goes retrograde while paired with Pisces, the sign it rules, on Friday, snapping you out of your idealistic daydreams and opening your eyes to reality. Confronting harsh truths about ourselves or others isn’t pleasant, but it’s better than never facing the facts at all. You might be in shock for a while, but when that wears off, you’ll be thankful for this little planetary wake-up call.
Your Zodiac Sign’s Weekly Horoscope
You’re always moving forward, Aries, so you’re not typically the kind of sign that gets stuck in the past. However, early this week, you can get caught up in “the good old days” just like everyone else. Just remember that the past is a nice place to visit, but you shouldn’t plan on buying real estate there. As soon as you’re done reminiscing, it’s time to move on.
Your problems, at least some of them, are about to be a part of the past. This week’s helpful planetary energy helps you focus on areas of your life that need work long enough to find practical, concrete solutions. It feels good to finally be able to lighten your load a little, doesn’t it, Taurus?
With your ruler Mercury visiting sentimental Cancer this week, you’re moodier than usual. Recalling certain memories can be pleasurable, but other issues from the past can haunt you. Honestly, Gemini, you’ll be glad when this little walk down memory lane is over so that you can focus on more important things.
All kinds of emotions are stirred up when thoughtful Mercury moves into your sentimental sign this week, Cancer. You have a bit of a selective memory, but that’s normal. A lot of things look better in the rear-view mirror than they do from any other perspective.
You’re sometimes accused of being a touch on the shallow side. However, Mercury moving into Cancer early this week brings out all your deep feels, Leo! Living in the moment is your usual MO. Still, you’re not immune to getting stuck in the past during this nostalgic transit. When reality hits you over the weekend, you’ll be ready for it.
With quick-thinking Mercury as your leader, you like to keep your thoughts focused and linear, but you can’t help but take a look back while it’s paired with sentimental Cancer this week. If you like what you see, you might stay a while, but if your memories are troubling in any way, you’re ready to stick with the present. Luckily, you have the ability to switch your emotions on and off fairly easily, Virgo.
This is a touching week in a lot of ways for you, Libra. Thinking about the past has a softening effect as you spend time reminiscing about a person or time in your life that you miss. It’s not that the present is so bad (and the future looks bright), but sometimes, like at certain times this week, you wish you had a time machine.
Scorpio, as a sign who feels things deeply, you run the risk of getting caught up and lost in the past this week, especially if your memories are tinged with regret. Lots of other signs can reminisce without getting weepy, but you’re missing an emotional attachment you used to have that isn’t there any longer. Luckily, you should snap out of it late in the week, but it could get emotionally dicey there for a minute.
You’re not one of those signs that gets all caught up in emotion, Sag. This week, while a lot of your friends are stuck pining for the past, you’re still intent on moving into the future. Luckily, you get some universal help with solving problems that allows you to avoid falling into the old nostalgia trap. You’re so ready to leave the past behind you!
You’re totally okay with the big old helping of reality that the cosmic menu is serving you this week. You aren’t someone who lives their life in the clouds, Capricorn, so you probably already knew this was coming. That’s not to say you can totally prepare for the reality slap that the weekend is going to give you, but at least you’re ready with some solid defensive moves if it comes to that.
You can’t wait to tackle a problem that’s really been stumping you lately. Unlike some other signs, you aren’t afraid to look at the facts and take a shot at some of the bigger obstacles in your way. Your biggest flex is having a strong team to call on in case you need them. Your network of professionals and experts who are willing to help you is admirable, Aquarius!
Getting lost in your favorite daydreams is an acceptable pastime early in the week, Pisces. But when your leader Neptune goes retrograde while in your idealistic sign over the weekend, reality intrudes. It’s safe to say that you’re the sign most bothered by this rude cosmic interruption, so there’s no avoiding it — you’re gonna be grumpy. Having to take off your rose-colored glasses is never pleasant. So, just deal with your new perspective as best you can.
