Horoscopes for July 29th - August 4th

Leo // Leo Rising
A hang glider skims the air above treetops. Find a new way through. You can push through resistance, or you can get up above it. Be aware of the resistance, the same way the pilot notices the treetops. Design a current of air that will lift you up above the things that might obstruct your path. Your air current could be playfulness, liveliness, adventure or creativity. Find inspiration and fly.

Virgo // Virgo Rising
A prowling mountain lion. You need to get focused. Find something productive that you can dig into. A mountain lion on the prowl has her eyes on the prize. If you know what your prize is this week, you can surprise yourself with how much you can get done. You might have to burn through boredom or dullness. But once you find your focus, you’ll be able to feel excited and aligned.

Libra // Libra Rising
A bird flies out the window. Let go. Even if you are tired, there is something you need to shed. You don’t need to know what you’re going to let go of, just remind yourself to surrender. From there you’ll feel more open and relaxed. New ideas can flow in and you can open yourself to new possibility. The symbol shows that letting go is a path to freedom.

Scorpio // Scorpio Rising
Rocks at the bottom of a crystal clear pond. Clarity is nice. In the symbol, when you look up you see blue skies and when you look down you see all the way to bottom of the pond. That means that right now you need to make an assessment. Get clear on what feels like security. And get clear on your goals. Rocks move and the bottom of the lake is always changing. What do you want to change about your foundation? 

Sagittarius // Sagittarius Rising
Jumping on a trampoline. This is a symbol that shows a need for entertainment and for jumping outside of your comfort zone. The things that you think might be extraneous or financially impractical might actually be crucial for your health and development. You might need to go outside of your routine so that you feel happier. Travel and explore. Leap higher.

Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
A soft cushy bed. Comfort yourself. Enfold yourself into a warm embrace. Your task this week is to feel your emotions fully. In order to do that you need to know that you are safe and worthy. Imagine yourself fully supported and held, just as if you were sinking into a safe nest. That comfort will help you go deeper and explore your vulnerable side. 

Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
An arrow flies to the target. This symbol indicates that you need to learn to be straight to the point in your communication. Relationships and conversations may test your temper. Give yourself space to decompress, but then say what you really need to say. Sometimes it’s hard to know what you really want and how you really feel. Be clear with yourself so you can be direct with others.

Pisces // Pisces Rising
A rabbit hops through the forest. The rabbit is high strung, but also abundant. This energy illustrates that you can go fast through life, push and work, but don’t forget that life is to be enjoyed. Make a promise to yourself that you will focus on the details — that could be self-care, organization, or health. From there you’ll feel more productive and ready to take on bigger projects.

Aries // Aries Rising
Throwing prizes to the audience at a talk show. Right place, right time. There are many options at your fingertips. And the odds are good. So raise your spirits and get in the practice of being optimistic. You can question your work or you can think about your family or responsibilities, but no matter what the specifics are, the answer is that you need to get out of your own way and try to have more fun. Catch your reward.

Taurus // Taurus Rising
The milkman makes a delivery. Milk symbolizes nurturance and the milkman can be a symbol of the past. How can your past nurture you? What ancient part of you needs to be healed or restored? How old is your inner child who needs a little more love and acceptance? Or is there an ancestor or beloved dead who you can call on for support? Look to the past for a new beginning. 

Gemini // Gemini Rising
A pizza pie cut into slices. Instead of seeing yourself as scattered, think of your interests as many slices out of the whole. You need to cultivate confidence within yourself right now. Keep pursuing the different things that you love. When you have a chance to zoom out later, you’ll see how everything fits together. For now your voracious curiosity will take you far.

Cancer // Cancer Rising
A puppy full of joy. Be exactly who you are. You never, ever need to judge yourself, but you do need to cultivate self-awareness. Look around for reminders that every living thing is worthy. Check in with your thinking to make sure that you are building up your self-esteem with your inner dialogue. That will help you love yourself and be filled with joyful feelings.
