Horoscope for July 11-17

Cross-posted from Aloha Astro

Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Aries is a pioneering fire sign, but this week, some water and earth will soften and stabilize you, Aries. If you feel like you have been spinning since the new moon of the first of the month, you are right - you have been. Now you are coming to rest on a few clear ideas or goals and you are vocalizing or taking assertive action. You cannot repress your creativity or your dreams. Many Rams will get a financial boost when the full moon in the 10th house of career brings something to a culmination point or makes a career move certain. Home and family bring you pleasure now, but if your work is at home, you may find it difficult to work around a partner or family members. A friend may have some suggestions for a home office or work space to suit your needs.

Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
"Something of value," is what I heard when I looked at your chart this week, Taurus. "Strange, but good," is another possibility. Money could come from surprising sources, possibly a windfall or inheritance, when you least expect it. Nothing can really go wrong for you now while Jupiter visits your sign and the sun and Venus are making you feel sure, secure, loved, and loving. Everyone feels like a brother or sister to you now, which helps you make the most of this week's full moon in your 9th house of higher education, foreign travel, and philosophy. You delight in learning new things, meeting new people, or planning a trip or relocation. Writers, teachers, or salespeople can accomplish a lot now because the planets are blending drive with imagination, speed, and the potent power of desire. You know where you are headed, even if the path isn't entirely laid out before you yet.

Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
"All you need is love," Gemini. You have an inner confidence in the tendency for things to always work out in the way that is best for you, which will help you in making important decisions. Although work and money may matter this week, love and shared resources are the important things. If it feels like love, or makes your heart or gut feel content and secure, you are willing and ready to commit to your chosen person, investment, or course of action. If it doesn't feel like you think love should, or it upsets or frightens you, then you are just as prepared to sever ties, withdraw your support, or even go to court over an issue. The full moon in your 8th house is not playing around when it comes to intimacy, business partnerships, investments, and the shared assets of marriage/divorce. Love is your compass and self-worth is your true north.

Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Expect a change at work or in your career at the beginning of the week, Cancer. This may be just what you want now while the planets are making you restless, bored, creative, and desiring some attention. Please don't be upset when I say that some Crabs can get so emotionally caught up in their own dramas or perceived woes that they behave like immature teenagers. The planets are emphasizing YOU and having fun with friends, along with a subconscious Puckish-ness that wants to poke at things and stir up some trouble just to see the effect, which is why "teenager" came to mind. The full moon in your 7th house of marriage and the hidden self may bring an actual marriage proposal from a friend who is passionate about you - or your current partner may be your strongest ally now - but it is just as likely that this full moon is telling you to get serious, pay attention, and act with greater maturity.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Last week was a rollercoaster ride, wasn't it, Leo? Thankfully, there are simpler energy patterns for you this week and a greater concentration of focus on your work. The full moon in your 6th house of work, service, health, and habits will help you clear out time-wasting activities from your schedule. Most importantly, you might make a schedule now - I'm sure last week blew your schedule to pieces! When it comes to business, get things in writing. Your word and handshake mean something to you, but not everyone thinks like a Leo, and there is a planet now that can throw you some sucker punches in the communication department. Meditation, quiet time, and gentle exercise can help counter the effects of overwork and excessive thinking. Confide in your partner and have a romantic escape together this weekend, even if only for a few hours. You will reconnect and feel refreshed.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Finding your dream home or deciding to purchase something large or valuable may occur at the beginning of the week, Virgo. The opportunity could be presented by a friend who knows what you have been looking for and thought of you as soon as they saw it. The full moon this week in your 5th house of creativity will manifest in different ways for Virgos depending on what age and stage you are in life. If you have been considering parenthood or trying to conceive, now may be the right time for you. Other Virgos can take a friendship to a more serious, passionate level or take a hobby or particular form of artistic expression more seriously. It seems you already have a waiting audience. If speaking, teaching, marketing, or publishing is involved, the doors fly open for you now.

Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
This week is only slightly less intense than last week, Libra. Chalk up discomfort to the full moon in stony-faced Capricorn in your 4th house of home and psychological foundations conjunct Pluto, the great transformer. If you feel like a burning phoenix or have mental images of The Tower tarot card, that's why. Of course, Saturn in your 1st house is also struggling to stand strong in doing what you love career-wise, and relationships are turning on and off as fast as a strobe light. Confusion between emotions and thoughts is possible, as well. The good news is that you are certain and secure in your purpose and a business plan, and you can creatively manifest financial help, investors, or sponsors now when you speak passionately about what you love.

Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
The full moon this week occurs in your 3rd house of imagination, local neighborhood, communication, and transportation, Scorpio. Before the full moon arrives, it spends some time in your 2nd house of money, stimulating your desire to think of ways to increase your income. A partner may help you brainstorm some unusual ideas that become feasible after the full moon, or you may devise a plan to collaborate with a competitor. Mutual support can be a win/win situation when you realize that there is enough money and business for everyone. The ability to think creatively and to think BIG is the gift this full moon brings. Boundaries dissolve for you now.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Show up and collect the check, Sagittarius. You make a point of being on-time and up-front at the start of the week, eager to work and just as eager to make sales or communicate to get things accomplished. You feel the urge to tie up loose ends now as the full moon signals an ending of a cycle at the same time the transit of the moon through the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd houses in your chart signals a new cycle. Confused? Being a mutable fire sign enables you to multitask well as you complete some old things and start new projects simultaneously - all the while planning, thinking, and talking. You may have a partner who catches a ball when you drop it, or who reminds you of the importance of financial responsibility as the full moon culminates in your 2nd house of money and personal values.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
If you are feeling a bit battered by the tempestuous planetary energy of last week, Capricorn, then I advise you take a few personal days at the start of the week to rest and reflect. Some unusual messages may come to you from out of the blue that stimulate your creativity and lead to new ways of looking at things. The full moon in your 1st house of self indicates it is time for you to pay attention to your appearance, the way you connect with others, your tastes and preferences, and the people, places, and things you identify with. If you have drifted, especially in business, now is the time to redirect your energy to what matters most. Renew your commitment to yourself and your goals.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
The best way to overcome a fear is to move through it, Aquarius. This week's full moon activates Pluto in your 12th house of the subconscious and the collective. Right before the full moon slips into this deep well of your soul, where dark demons and bright angels lurk, it spends the beginning of the week in your 11th house. Friends and the Internet both may fill your mind with too much drama and stimulation, making it too easy for you to slip into fear-based thinking. Withdraw midweek to examine the nature of the darkness you fear. What or who have you imagined is too big and powerful? Are they really? What would happen if you acknowledge the reservoir of power within yourself?

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Career and income are highlighted for you this week, Pisces. I see the tendency for you to "should" on yourself. You may be doubting your own talents or the service, information, or product you sell. You may not think any of it is what is "right" or in-demand. Before you tear it up, trash it, or seek a way to make it better, why not accept that it is all perfect just as it is now? Years ago, when I took oil painting classes, my teacher would tell me that at any point in the development of my painting, I should be able to consider it finished - just as it is. The one thing you CAN change, as indicated by the full moon in your 11th house of friends, groups, and organizations, is your reach, audience, or venue. Reach out to more people and look to new markets. The weekend is a time to integrate the new expansion.
