This week highlights our need to face our emotions and get honest with ourselves. Try to recognize the power of release—once we clear out the negative emotions, we then make room for joy and the life we desire.
The Mercury/Mars opposition on Thursday may bring some anger, conflict and miscommunication, so do an activity alone to blow off some steam. Communicating with our loved ones from a place of anger during the current Mars retrograde (which is going on until late August) will do more harm than good.
On Sunday, July 8, the Sun trines Neptune, which brings awareness to aspects of life that may have been neglected. Dream big! Then make an action plan for next steps to make your desires a reality.
For more on what this week has in store, here are your weekly love horoscopes courtesy of Astrologer & Spiritual Relationship Coach Katy Ibur.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
Emotions might run high this week, so it’s a great time to explore things you haven't wanted to think about too hard. However, you may want to initially process these emotions alone, since Mars retrograde may intensify your desire to pick unnecessary fights, especially with your partner and social groups!
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
This is a great week to get allow yourself to be vulnerable and to express yourself to your partner and friends. While communicating, tap into how you truly feel about the issue at hand. If you can get to the heart of the matter, you have a huge opportunity to deepen your connection with that person. Also, be aware that drama could pop up at work this week. Handle it with some nourishing self-care after hours!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This week could end up being lucky in your both professional and financial pursuits. Spend this week visualizing where you want to go professionally. This will keep your goals strong when obstacles arise. Your partner may be a little stubborn or close-minded on Thursday, so counter this rigidness through non-defensive communication. If they are not willing to see your point, don’t force it. It could just lead to more drama!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Some financial or resource-related issues may come up on Thursday. Finances may be tight. Communicate with your partner about how to handle these issues and try to find a compromise that makes everyone happy. Be sure to not fall into guilt-tripping your partner, but also don’t let them walk all over you and your opinions. This week is also a great time to check-in with your physical needs and creativity. Do you need to start going to sleep earlier? What creative project could you start that will bring you joy?
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Be cautious about not getting too heated within your most intimate relationships, as this week could stir up some repressed anger between you and your loved ones. You will be stretched to find a balance between your needs and the needs of others, so be sure not to take it personally if your loving actions aren’t immediately reciprocated. Make some time to express your emotions solo. Maybe scream in to a pillow or take a kickboxing class to let off some steam.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
This week will bring a reality check about how you are communicating and expressing yourself in your intimate relationships. Allow yourself to dream big about where you want your relationship to go, or if you are single, what kind of relationship you want. Plan out all of the details and know that by keeping your eyes on the prize, you will be rewarded. You may also be challenged this week by a co-worker or colleague who questions the value you bring to the table. Stand strong in knowing that you are a valuable asset to any team, and don’t be too hard on yourself!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This week could bring up issues surrounding your kids or your creative projects that might trigger you into anger. Reach out to friends and acquaintances for guidance, because now is the time to lean on your networks for support. All of the energy you have been putting into your work and finances will finally pay off this week, so just keep your eye of the prize!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
This week could bring up some turbulent emotions that may overthrow your sense of security. Don’t immediately react with anger; instead, focus on work and your creative projects. This will help you calm down, and then you can create more space to productively process your emotions. This is also a great week to reevaluate your core beliefs and where you want to go from here. Make time for reflection.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Someone will challenge your beliefs this week. Use this as an opportunity to be honest with yourself. Do you see where the other person is coming from? Check your ego and be emotionally blunt with yourself. Get your adventurous side moving by trying out a new creative class, maybe even an improv class or an acro-yoga jam.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Be sure to check up on your finances this week as you may encounter some financial shakeups. This could affect your self-esteem, as Capricorn loves to do it all on their own! Try leaning on your partner and loved ones for support, even if that support is financial. Reaching out and asking for help will help to deepen and strengthen your relationships. Vulnerability can be challenging, but you will be rewarded if you allow yourself to open up.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
You might have to stand your ground this week, especially about your personal needs when you are challenged as being selfish. Your partner and close friends may grow angry, so be sure to go out of your way to show that they are important to you. Grand gestures are welcomed, even though it may be out of your comfort zone. This week, focus on your professional goals. How do you want to contribute to your work zone? Ethical issues may come to light at work, so think about how you want to handle the situation before taking any rash action.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You may feel a little emotionally drained this week. All of the tragedies happening in the world at-large and in your personal world feel a little more overwhelming than usual this week. Try not to numb yourself out, and instead take a yoga class or try a cleanse to get yourself grounded within your body. Feel out where you want to be in the near future. Who do you want to become? Create an image that is yours, and don’t get lost in what others want for you. Get clear on what you really want and then make a vision board to reflect your image.
