Horoscope for the Week: July 23, 2021


Tip of the Week:


Leo time has begun and on its heels, on August 23 is a Full Moon in Aquarius. Interestingly, this will be the first of 2 Full Moons in Aquarius, the first at 1 Aquarius 26 and the second  on August 22 at 29 Aquarius 36. It is also worth mentioning that from the perspective of Astrology especially, no two Full Moons are ever the same due to the compound factor that all the planets must be taken into account as a whole. This is the ‘golden rule’ among true astrologers.

During the current Full Moon, Jupiter Retrograde at 0 Pisces is on the verge of re-entering Aquarius itself which it will do on July 28. Meanwhile, Venus, having just entered Virgo, will oppose Jupiter. This is just one factor yet it is a somewhat challenging one whereby the prince and princess of Astrology when in such ‘opposition’ tends to manifest as social ambition and competition. Extravagance vies with wastefulness and a child-like expectancy and entitlement can be an issue. Conscious effort towards modesty and moderation is ideal.


Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Questions regarding who your true friends are is highlighted this week. This extends to who you are not on your journey and what you need and value. Naturally, these change over time. Extra efforts may be required to keep the peace especially since Mercury is in Cancer where thoughts and perceptions are more subjective than usual.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Home and family take the spotlight this week. You yearn for quality time shared more than usual. Strong emotions will guide your thinking and upsets are quite possible, or at least some sentimental ,   possibly teary, moments. Otherwise, you are in the mood to play. Just be careful that fun and games do not take a sudden turn to hard ball.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Your energy levels have been running quite high and this will continue. You have likely been enjoying some fun in the sun quality time of late. This trend will also continue yet will also include a more sober and serious approach towards making improvements. Cleaning and doing repairs is featured. In the deeper end, philosophical thoughts are on your mind.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

The recent New Moon in your sign culminates now and will synchronize with a definite wave of change in terms of emotions linked to your social network.  Mercury in your sign will likely manifest as stronger emotional expressions than usual. Your critical faculties will be running strong as well serving to raise your energy levels but perhaps also your blood pressure.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

A busy time behind the scenes will now enter a more obvious, frontal assault of deliberate assertion. That’s what is likely to happen when the Sun enters your own sign and when it happens to be Leo! Yet, your critical faculties will also be running strong leading you to practical considerations above all, such as how to save money.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

A busy cycle begins both behind the scenes and involving stronger outward expressions, as well. Your focus will be towards making improvements. Positively, this will amount to a creative cycle during which time projects awaiting their time can begin. Gathering tools and materials is especially likely and may constitute the greater measure of your efforts.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The Sun transit through Leo will have the effect of activating a strong sense of your individuality. Some of this may come about by way of inner work or at least emerge as if out of the blue from your subconscious mind. If the latter is true, the effects may be a little delayed, yet will also be strong and more evident.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

This is your moment of opportunity to get some well deserved attention. To this end, you may find yourself working harder than usual. Neither will you be in the mood to ‘suffer fools gladly’. Your resolve stands to be ambitious, determined and pragmatic. In fact, others may regard your actions as revolutionary, or at least markedly rebellious.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The Sun and Leo will add to an enthusiastic and exuberant mood. You will feel excited and inspired to go big somehow. Venus and Mars in Virgo will help you to keep both feet on the ground all the while. You will push for practical results which may include acquiring new skills, tools and techniques. Get ready to get busier!

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

The Sun in Leo tends to be a transformational time for you. Over the coming several weeks you will undergo changes subject to new realizations, epiphanies and perhaps some measure of sober realization. A feature of this process includes something of a vision quest supported by a strong desire and determination to decipher what is and is not true.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Your relationship life is poised to undergo a process of change and transformation. Endings are very likely during the coming weeks yet these will be quickly followed by new beginnings as well. Yet, these will probably be experienced as practical choices that leave you feeling clear, sober and realistic regarding the overall process.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

Changes in your overall lifestyle will be activated by the Sun in Leo. The emphasis is upon health and self-improvement. Much of this focus will likely include your home and family. Shifts and perhaps even permanent changes in your usual perspectives are featured. Financial dealings, interest, ambitions and concerns are part of the plot.
