See what’s in the stars for you this week!
Astrology by Lisa Stardust
The week ahead is intense. By keeping an open mind, we will thrive and attain our objects. Don’t think from a narrow perspective. Ebb and flow through the cosmic energies. Jupiter re-enters Aquarius on July 28, taking us back to May 11. It’s time to think more about out-of-the-box projects and ideas. Before Mars switches signs, it makes an opposition in Leo to Jupiter. We are going to give our all to matters in the morning, before passions simmer down in the evening. Mars enters Virgo on July 29, making us all more conscious about how we exert our energy. Venus, who’s in Virgo, squares off with the Nodes of Destiny on July 29, which will make us choose the new path we want to take in love and with investing money. This sentiment is amplified two days later during the Last Quarter Moon in Taurus. The Leo Sun harmonizes with the Nodes of Destiny on July 31, giving us power and drive to change our lives. Mercury, who’s in Leo, connects with the Nodes of Destiny on August 1, which means that we are making contacts that can help our future. Moments later, the Sun and Mercury connect, offering us magical insights about ourselves and others. Hours later, Mercury and Saturn, who’s retrograde in Aquarius, oppose each other, putting a pin in the knowledge we obtained. The Leo Sun and Saturn retrograde oppose each other on August 2, making us feel less confident in our decisions than we imagined. Uranus harmonizes with Venus and squares Mercury on August 3, adding erraticism and desire to our lives and choices.
You are in control of your life, even if you don’t feel like you are. Instead of making decisions on a whim, or because you don’t have time to solve problems, it’s ideal to take a few moments to assess what you want. Then, you can manifest your desires.
There are always different avenues that you can pursue in life. But, you’re finding that you know the best road to choose. Even if you’re given advice by others, the only person who knows best is you. Trust your intuition to lead you to personal and professional greatness this week.
All of the outside noise surrounding you is making you feel a little anxious and stressed. Therefore, it’s time to shut out all of the information that is chirping in your ears. Meditate and focus on what you know and wish to attain. Then, you can find peace of mind.
Rather than pointing fingers at others, own your part in a bad situation. Accepting accountability for your actions (even if your role was minimal) will allow you to move past the circumstances easily and make up with others more easily than before. It’ll put a stop to the unnecessary drama.
You’re not one for change, but it is coming your way this week. The shift is coming from within, and will affect the way you perceive situations. Try not to be super sensitive as you navigate through this transformation. You are growing, which has nothing to do with anyone else.
Instead of asserting your views, you are opting to stay quiet. The issue is that a part of yourself isn’t being seen or heard. In order to get what you want, it’s essential to advocate for yourself. People won’t know what you want unless you get loud and speak up.
Finding the place where you belong can take a lifetime. However, you are beginning to see that you are where you should be. The stars are allowing you to notice that you’re in the right place with the right people at the correct time. Relish in the synchronization right now.
Projects at work aren’t going as you thought they would. That is ok. You have the opportunity to revise them by week’s end. The lesson is to be open to change and less sensitive to criticism. It takes a team and lots of feedback to make a project soar high.
Lately, you’ve been focusing on the minor details of matters as opposed to seeing the larger perspective (which is what you usually do). Being nit picky is not serving you well. You will be able to get a better view of issues if you detach from the specifics of everything.
Although you tend to be rigid about your thoughts and plans, you’re seeing that it’s best to keep an open mind in terms of projects and relationships. By doing this, your relationships will take a new direction and all areas of your life will begin to flourish in unexpected ways.
A lot of the relationships in your life need to change. You’re beginning to see that you are giving more than you were getting from others, which is making you want to find an equilibrium with those who aren’t giving to you as much as they are receiving from you.
Getting back into the groove of a routine may sound boring to others, but not to you. Without it, you’re unable to accomplish everything on your to-do lists and even be in control of your life. Give a little more TLC to your day-to-day life. It’ll set your energetic tone.
