Horoscopes for July 24 - July 31

Leo :: Leo Rising
Playing on a playground. Let yourself be young at heart. There may be worries and there may be fears, but by keeping yourself in a mode of “play” throughout it all, you may be able to shift to a different vibration. When you were a kid, you possibly made plans about when to play and with whom— setting up playdates and going to playgrounds. Can you do that for yourself now, as an adult? It’s important for your motivation and vitality.

Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Dipping a spoonful of salt water out of the sea. Partake. Let yourself have a serving. It’s a powerful dose of magic that you’re after. A spoonful of closeness to your spirituality, your creativity, your dreams. Maybe you’ve been overwhelmed or busy with practical things. Now is the time to put your energy into prayer, meditation, art, music, ritual, or imagination. Heal yourself with a medicinal dose of the water element — spirituality, emotionality, or symbolism.

Libra :: Libra Rising
An aerial photograph of a thousand people holding hands in a circle. You are ready to bring the people together. Big time. Build intention and build momentum. How will you manifest yourself in the global community? What is your conceptual intention for the macro? Whether we like it or not, we now have a global awareness. What will you do with that awareness? Every small action can be made with that larger “mission statement”  in mind.

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
Climbing the tree to pluck the perfect coconut. Gathering your harvest. It’s time to reap some rewards. There may be a big push when it comes to your career and that will satisfy your desire to make something concrete happen in this world. You came here to grow and change and evolve. So do it fast and furious right out there in the public eye. Don’t hold anything back. Climb the tree using every muscle in your body. Nobody said this would be easy. But the ripest fruit waits at the top.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
A kaleidoscope reveals many worlds. Nothing is as it seems at first. Look through the kaleidoscope and view one paradigm. And then a small twist of the dial reveals another. Don’t stop looking for another way to frame what is happening. The angel message keeps coming in strong: Manifest what you want. Use your energy to create the world you want to live in. All of your seeking, all of your yearning, all of your thirsty desire will lead you directly to the realization of your vision— as long as you just believe that it’s possible.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
The snake eating its tail. A powerful ancient symbol to carry with you this week. The eternal cycle. Each stage of the cycle requires transformation. You must be brave enough to let yourself break down so that you can build yourself anew. Trusting that it’s all part of an eternal cycle. Creation out of destruction. Life out of death. To work with this symbol in a practical way— push yourself to trust. Trust that the cycle supports you and you cannot fail.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Trying to put a cloud in a basket. Notice any outdated desire to hold and control. You can’t contain the cloud, but you can yourself become more vaporous. Do so by making space for love, creativity, and imagination. All three of these cannot be contained, because if they are trapped they will vaporize. Where all of this abstraction becomes concrete is in your closest relationships. You just can’t control them. Defy any attachment to a specific outcome by replacing it with love.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
Rubbing lavender on your hands and face. Look for relaxation in the act of self-care. Make your cleansing and health practices sensual. It’s time to refresh. It’s time to organize. It’s time to take care of yourself and others. Do this work with a feeling of devotion. Tend to yourself like a priestess tending to an altar.

Aries :: Aries Rising
Cartoon exclamations:  “Boom!” “Bang!” “Kapow!” Is your life filled with exclamations? Are you interested and fascinated? Is your average day the right kind of page-turner? You need excitement. And more so, you need to appreciate the excitement that you have. Journal about your day. Then, in the margins, draw colorful comic “pow” speech bubbles to highlight the moments of adventure. Maybe the practice will help you remember that you truly are the superhero of your story.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Threading a needle. You are stitching yourself into the fabric of your lineage. Each move determines the path of your familial evolution. Where will you go with your energy? Will you change the pattern or continue it? Will you sew automatically or choose intentionally as you thread together a new iteration? Family or home situations may require a reset. Craft it carefully.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
A wagon pulled by horses moves down the dusty trail. Uncharted territory. It may be time for you move into a new way of thinking. New beliefs, new patterns, new terrain. That kind of exploration requires a bit of bravery, so consider; What will it cost you to remain in the grooved pattern? Is it comfortable where you are? Or do you need to upgrade? If so, then it’s time to research and plan. Find trusted guidance that can lead you into the unknown.

Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Bushels of apples. So much sweetness. So much abundance. Take it all in. This is your natural state. The more that you can own the idea that abundance is your birthright, the more confident you’ll become. You need to build something long-lasting right now. Make sure that whatever you’re building matches your values. And let a powerful trust in the universe propel you along.
