Horoscope for the Week: July 30, 2021
Tip of the Week:
The Moon enters its last quarter phase as August begins. The complexity of the waning process may prove palpable due to these complex times. Currently, Mars has entered Virgo as of July 29 just hours after forming a dramatic opposition with Jupiter in Leo and Aquarius respectively. Generally, this aspect produces a pull between the drive to achieve and a desire to play. Self-discipline and the need to be more patient is the usual advice, which does not sound like much fun, yet is best achieved with an aspiration to find the sweet spot in-between.
Yet, since both Mars and Jupiter are at the critical and charged 29th degree of Leo and Aquarius, and given the continued drama on the global stage including heavy governmental restrictions, mass protests and severe weather patterns, achieving this will prove even more challenging than it would usually. This is where gaining a clearer and deeper perspective on your own personal destiny that astrology can offer could prove even more helpful than usual.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You want to play, but circumstances may be preventing you from feeling at peace and able to enter the flow. The sweet spot for you may be best achieved by engaging in constructive projects, primarily, while tucking in quality bouts of play time. Reaching out to engage friends on both accounts is likely and could work best if they are able to do both with you.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You may be among the luckier ones who are able to take full advantage of fun-in-the-sun Leo time this year. This is largely due to the influence of Venus and Mars in earthy Virgo. However, Jupiter joining Saturn in Aquarius also indicates that you are dealing with some cold realities in your public and/or professional life. Creative activity will keep you warm.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
The Venus/Mars factor in Virgo is pushing a lot of people to focus on practical projects this summer, despite the playful impulse of Leo. In fact, this push may be stronger for you than it is for others. As a result, you may feel compelled either from within or subject to outer circumstances to dig deeper and work harder than most. Focus on beautifying for best results.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
One way or another, you have entered new territory over the past few weeks. In fact, this may be true in a variety of respects. This has led you to at least investigate how to best invest into this new chapter. The first step probably includes deepening your research and exercising your critical thinking faculties. Digesting the implications of your studies is another matter.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
A creative exchange of energies with significant others is underway. This includes some measure of expansion, yet it also includes the need for a deep sense of commitment to the future. In both respects, changes in your lifestyle and your financial affairs are implied. The follow through will require further practical thinking and realistic action.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Although you probably remain busy behind the scenes, a cycle of more outer and deliberate expression starting this week is indicated. This trend will continue well into September actually and includes taking pioneering leads and strides. Positively, it includes an extra creative cycle which, despite the real efforts required, will likely prove empowering.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Balancing quality time shared with friends and an inward draw to get things done behind the scenes and/or simply to escape are likely themes now. Despite the complexity of this current cycle, it does come with the potential of some positive returns for efforts made in the past. This includes the increased possibility of making new friends.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Rather than wait to get the attention you feel you want and deserve, you are likely to make the effort to pull what string you can to make things happen. With Jupiter re-entering Aquarius, you will likely experience a boost of your confidence levels. This will empower you to be true to your principles and to be clearer than usual in your dealings with others.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The Sun in fiery Leo is a compliment to your own nature. Other factors point to an ambitious assertion of your will. This includes getting organized and obtaining tools, training and skills. So, the focus is much more on practical considerations than frivolous fun. This will also probably lead to a busier cycle than you have had for a while.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Venus and Mars in Virgo will give you a boost. These will contribute to a more positive process of change and transformation of your values and priorities regarding the future. Other factors are helping you generate creative ideas based on paying closer attention to the details of the bigger picture. Jupiter now in Aquarius will support your focus.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Leo time brings greater emphasis to your relationship life. Mercury there along with the Sun will stimulate your ability to think creatively especially as you combine your efforts with your partner(s). A new level of ambition is on the rise and it includes making extra efforts and digging deeper than you perhaps have for some time.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
A steady flow of change in your overall lifestyle continues. The Virgo influence from Venus and Mars will stimulate a blend of creative cooperation and assertive determination. The main issue regarding the latter is that you do not misplace anger and frustrations and direct them as blame upon others. Jupiter back in Aquarius will push you to dig deeper into your reserves of faith for the future.
