The Aquarius Full Moon is the highlight of this week on Thursday, but don't think that means the rest of the week is going to be quiet.

So much fire in the sky with Sun, Mercury Venus and Mars all in Leo and Jupiter turning direct on Sunday in Sagittarius—can you say explosive, passionate and playful?!

With Uranus heading into retrograde for the rest of the year, there may be a few bumps in the road on Monday or Tuesday as a shift begins. Overall, if you think twice before you blurt out something potentially hurtful, the energy this week can help you break free from some heavy stuff and give you cause to celebrate!

Read on for more of what this week has in store, courtesy of astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright!

Leo: July 23—August 22

Leos might be feeling underappreciated or passed over at work, but in spite of that, most still show you loyalty. Maybe it's just someone else's turn. Your day to day interactions with co-workers are still enjoyable and lighthearted. If you're looking for a new job, get in touch with someone you previously worked with—they may have a great lead. Finances get a boost over the weekend.

Virgo: August 23—September 22

The Full Moon lights up your 6th house of health and helping others. Take stock of these two areas of your life. You may feel like changing your workout or getting rid of clothes you've been holding onto for too long. Although you don't typically hold on to stuff, you do like a good purge. Mars in your sign gives you that extra boost of energy to make it happen.

Libra: September 23—October 22

Got a crazy idea? It may not be so crazy. Your creativity is high and you may feel an excitement that you haven't experienced in a long time. This is definitely the week you want to be out and about. Networking opportunities are golden. Join a new group, church, meetup, whatever...just connect with new faces.

Scorpio: October 23—November 21

You may find yourself in a situation where you have to collaborate with someone you may not be terribly fond of. This is one of those weeks where the boss gets a good look at your ability to transcend personal problems and be a team player. The latter half of the week is less stressful as you settle back into your routines and enjoy the Mars in Virgo energy, which helps you get loose ends tied up quickly. A gathering of some of your more interesting friends mid week provides some career inspiration.

Sagittarius: November 22—December 21 

You'll need to curb your enthusiasm since you're notorious for blurting out things, and under these conditions, maybe a vow of silence for a week is in order. Ok just kidding, Sag. We love you and love to hear your stories—but seriously, keep a lid on any inflammatory comments. Especially online as the Full Moon shines in your 3rd house in eclectic Aquarius. Sign up for an unusual learning experience or just further training to improve your chances for a promotion.

Capricorn: December 22—January 19

You've been going at a rapid pace for weeks now and this week is no different. Take breaks as you can and find some good snuggle time with your S.O. Taking a good look at where you're scattering your energy vs. doing things that build a solid future will help you reassess whether you say yes, or no to a new idea that comes at the end of the week.

Aquarius: January 20—February 18

Take the high road with family or your partner if a comment pushes your buttons. Try to let it go. Seriously, this week can be full of camaraderie and connection with those who've been on your side since day one. Invite your eclectic group of friends over and let the conversation flow.

Pisces: February 19—March 19

Pets will bring a ton of joy into your life now—whether they're yours or someone else's, you'll be more connected to their intuitive energy now. Spending time alone decompressing and journaling helps you stay heart centered. At week's end you'll be ready to make some fabulous changes.

Aries: March 20–April 19 

A fascinating group of people enters your life now and it may take a while to feel as though you fit in, but you'll find your way soon. If you haven't had a real date night out on the town with your partner, plan something exciting Thursday. On another note, a disagreement with an authority figure may leave you wondering just how it's possible to see things their way. Keep trying. There's always a compromise.

Taurus: April 20—May 20

It's like you speak it, and it happens, Taurus. You're seeing the effect of intentional manifestation in your life. You're on the right track but just need a bit of patience-which you usually have, but Uranus in your sign is making you especially edgy. As it retrogrades, you'll want to revise a project or revive a business idea you've had on the back burner for a while. Write it all down and take a look at it on Sunday.

Gemini: May 21—June 20 

Like Sag, you'll want to make sure your verbal filter is on. In these volatile times and under these astrological conditions, a slip of the tongue can have some pretty negative repercussions. As long as you play it cool, you'll be fine. A chance to address a group or teach a class is likely now—make notes and stick to them. Your input is of great value now so don't be afraid to share your more unusual ideas.

Cancer: June 21—July 22

If you're feeling left out, reach out. You've been pretty busy lately but your friends and S.O. are still there...giving you some space. Now that you've had some time to reassess your direction in life, share your dream with your closest mate and bffs and see how they can support you in making it happen. But above all, start your days with a gratitude list so you don't forget how much you've already got.

Horoscope for Week of August 5, 2019

This week, we are on the home stretch in finishing up this summer's Mercury in retrograde post-shadow period, with the planet moving back into Leo again on August 11th (and the retrograde shadow officially over on the 15th.)

Sunday, August 11th will have quite a bit of activity as Jupiter stations direct after a 4 month long retrograde period in its home sign of Sagittarius. Not only that, but later on Sunday planet Uranus (currently in Taurus) stations retrograde, remaining that way until the very end of the year! The planet Uranus represents our desire to be free, express ourselves in an unapologetic way and beat to your own drum. 

However, while Uranus being in retrograde will show us the strong desire to become 'unstuck'; you have to retrace your steps now in order to devise a plan that will work this time. Weighing what has helped and what hasn't and planning a solid road map to get there will be what gets you closer to what you want to accomplish,

Uranus and Taurus are not two energies known to mesh well together, but if you ask me, that's a little different when Uranus retrograde rolls around! Taurus will be able to hand over some patience and impulse control over to gung-ho Uranus during this time period and it can all work to our advantage.

For more on what the week ahead has in store, here are your weekly love horoscopes courtesy of professional astrologer Allie Shultz of Reality Check Astrology.

Leo: July 23—August 22

Leo, continue to work on building your self-acceptance, love, and worth. Even those 'flaws' you try to hide from others don't need to be shunned. During this week it's also important to step back and breathe, in order to regroup and remember that a lot of things are not in our personal control and that is OK! Take more time to appreciate the love that you are receiving from others lately, even despite its potential of not living up to how you imagined it to be presented. 

Virgo: August 23—September 22

Virgo, your task this week is to get out of your own way! If you're over analyzing aspects of your social life, it goes without saying that you aren't really going to enjoy yourself. Put the mental chatter and 'to do' list away right now and stay present in what is occurring in front of you. Stay away from unnecessary worries that will seemingly distract you from what is more important in the long term.

Libra: September 23—October 22

Speaking your truth this week to your significant other (or prospect!) is a great step in the right direction to a successful relationship. However, your loved one may not respond in a matter that you had hoped, which can be a bummer. Know that this is OK though, and do not let this deter you from continuing to be upfront, honest and trustworthy. Give your love time, and give yourself credit for honoring yourself.

Scorpio: October 23—November 21

No more beating around the bush, Scorpio. Say what you mean, no matter how hard it might be to expose your vulnerable side. This can make it awfully hard to articulate how you're feeling verbally, so take some time to process what is truly going on for you internally. Being more clear and direct with your emotional expression will go a long way with connecting more intimately with others in your life.

Sagittarius: November 22—December 21 

Remind yourself that it is OK to ask for help, Sagittarius. You have to put pride aside sometimes, and this week is one of those times! Realize that you're a valid human being just like anybody else. Refusing to disclose your inner struggles with others can result in missing valuable opportunities that you've been wishing for. It's like self-sabotage in disguise, and you deserve better than to block your own blessings.

Capricorn: December 22—January 19

Capricorn, you may be feeling as if you're spreading yourself too thin and yet refuse to stop to take a breather. Irritability can manifest as an immediate result of pushing yourself too far past reasonable limits and leave your loved ones with the brunt of moodiness and your exhaustion. It'll be important this week to reevaluate what actually means the most to you and to get priorities straight when it comes to making amends with your favorite people.

Aquarius: January 20—February 18

Aquarius, have you been taking advantage of relaxing to the point of ignoring most of your adult responsibilities completely? What is it that you're really trying to avoid? Ask yourself during the week what is truly going on with you beyond the surface level. Get in touch with your friends and family, especially if you are finding it hard to get motivated. Don't isolate yourself.

Pisces: February 19—March 19

Pisces, during this week you will find yourself uncovering more aspects of your life that need attention and work to be done. More mental fog has been clearing for you and you've been granted a fresh start when it comes to revamping your mindset, fixed expectations, and areas of your life where you lack acceptance (especially with romance themes). With the wounded healer asteroid Chiron moving through your house of worth, reviewing what your short and long term goals are to reach a further sense of fulfillment may be uncomfortable lately, but necessary.

Aries: March 20–April 19 

Keep pushing forward this week, Aries. You may be considering throwing in the towel when it comes to hoping for the best to come. You have to explore a new route in persevering because the old repetitive cycles and habits are no longer going to help you. It may not feel like the most uplifting days currently, but this is the eye of the storm for you and it's almost over. Keep your chin up.

Taurus: April 20—May 20

Taurus, this build-up to Uranus retrograde in your very sign may have you feeling restless and uneasy. This is more than likely due to realizing that you need to make a change or two that you're not all that fond of doing, and it will put your sense of loyalty to the test. At the end of the day, a compromise needs to be reached to maintain loving connections and also keep yourself happy as well.

Gemini: May 21—June 20 

Gemini, experiencing a lot of stimulation and intensity in your thought processes may leave room for you stirring the pot, intentionally or not. Take initiative this week in finding productive ways of expending this energy wisely and for good intentions. Exploring the options of new hobbies and activities can prove lucky when it comes to recharging romantic inklings in your life!

Cancer: June 21—July 22

Cancer, you're apt to be feeling a sense of disconnection from others and asking yourself where it is you truly belong. If you find yourself merely going through the motions of relationships and not honoring your own desires, you can become resentful very fast. Open up the lines of communication and lay it all out on the table.
