Horoscopes for July 17 - July 23

image by the numinous

Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Ladybugs. It’s time to herald in good luck. Feel abundant, well taken care of, and secure. Nestle into a comfy cove, and ease into a feeling of relaxation. You’re fine. All is well. Slow down a little bit. Attune to the rhythms of nature as much as you can and take deep breaths. It’s time to feel grounded and remind yourself that scarcity is a myth. You have the same abundance within you that is echoed in the abundance of leaves on the nearest tree.

Leo :: Leo Rising
Rubik’s cubes stretching as far as the eye can see. Puzzling something together. This month ahead brings you on a journey of defining yourself in a new way. Validate yourself. What does that mean to you? A question— how many times in a day do you take credit away from yourself? Give that credit back. Do you allow other people to take away your power with a word or a glance? Change your perception. This all might seem like a puzzle, but keep working at the solution. Build yourself up so that your pure light shines from within. There is a way to do that while still remaining gracious and kind.

Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Marshlands. Still waters. Below the surface there is an active ecosystem of fish, frogs, roots, weeds and microscopic life forms. It’s a busy world down there. Your dream world may be busy too. Your subconscious mind is ripe for change. Pay extra attention to dreams, symbols and feelings. Look for opportunities to think of the past, consider forgotten emotions and allow deep healing in the furthest reaches of your psyche. Make space for quiet intention-setting.

Libra :: Libra Rising
A unicorn high-stepping at the edges of a frothy sea. Change your perspective. Do it now! The world is much more magical than you think. Much more is possible than you think. What has been “proven” can absolutely change. Shake yourself out of a boring, mundane reality and LOOK for the magic. This is not a time to be staring in the mud. You’ll miss the vision of the unicorn emerging from the sea.

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
A spiderweb of gossamer threads catches the light. The spider builds a web carefully, strand by strand. The next day she nonchalantly moves on to the next project— a new web. She doesn’t worry about all of the work she did before. She keeps looking for an improved location, technique and result. You are entering an ambitious new phase. Keep working. Keep looking for a higher building site, just a little bit closer to the light source. Every spider knows that’s where the moths are.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
Hang gliding. Seeing new sights. You are on a massive quest for exploration and freedom. Adventure is your food and water. A new way of thinking is your shelter and warmth. Get outside of yourself, get beyond your everyday. Look for higher meaning. Seek a greater philosophy. Let that drive you.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
A brilliant bouquet flowers. Appreciation of the sensual experience of life. Look closer for beauty. Look deeper. Don’t just see the flowers — smell the flowers, dream of the flowers, eat the flowers. Get really present and merge into the experience that life is offering you. Don’t distract yourself with overwhelming goals or “future thinking” right now. Being fully present will allow you to truly make an impact.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Swans going fishing. A pair of monogamous swans taking on their daily task of finding food. They float along and have fun together as they meet their needs for sustenance. They make it look easy. You are learning to balance work, relationships and play. You are learning to go with the flow. You are creating space to be your true authentic self, while allowing yourself to be seen in relationship. Let it be known to the world that you are magnanimous, gracious and strong, just like a swan.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
A telephone made of tin cans. Gathering new information, clearing up confusion, trying to make improvements. There’s a lot of work and a multitude of details to take care of. Is it possible that you’re working with out-dated technology? Focus on your systems and organization. If you can get the details in good order, you’ll have more space for fun, creativity and playfulness.

Aries :: Aries Rising
Kickboxing. A flurry of activity. Let yourself be wild. Be on fire with creativity and action. You’ll feel burned out if you’re denying yourself of fun. Make time for fun, joy and lightness. The more that you explore your playful, creative side, the more you’ll learn about yourself. The “kick-boxing” symbol means that you are taking something on. Find your motivation to take on your next project by asking yourself what would be fun to do. What would feel joyous? That’s how you kick it into high gear.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Pulling a rope in a game of tug-of-war. Hold on. Bear down. Staunchly protect your boundaries. Instead of rushing forward or starting new projects, take some time to be sure your basic emotional needs are met. Do you know deep within that you are worthy? Do you love yourself truly? Prove to yourself that you love yourself by allowing space for your feelings. Even if they are not comfortable! You need to hold on for a little bit here so that you recognize on deep levels how strong and supported you are.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
Using a megaphone. You are ready to send a message. What are you consciously deciding to bring into your life? Call it out. Tell the universe. Say what you want. Say how you want your relationships to feel, how you want your work to feel, how you want your money to feel, how you want your health to feel. Shout it out from the rooftops so that you are very clear on your intentions.
