We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekly horoscope for the week of July 4-10.
There’s a New Moon in Cancer this week (July 4), which means that comfort, security, and heartfelt interactions will be on everyone’s mind. Since New Moons represent beginnings, they signal the perfect time to start a project or initiate something else of importance. Incidentally, New Moons in Cancer are especially great for beginning activities involving women, children, food and nutrition, or real estate. Midweek, Venus (love/money) in Cancer syncs up with Mars (passion/action) in Scorpio which will not only stir up our desires, it will also give us the determination and focus to go after them too, *wink, wink*. Later in the week things may get a little hairy thanks to some funny business between Uranus (sudden change) and Venus. A backup plan may be necessary to get past or avoid any hiccups.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook each Monday for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It may feel like your work-life balance is way off-balance this week, but this temporary discomfort could be the push you need to take a step back (or two) from the pressure. Be kind to yourself.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your word is like gospel now, mesmerizing everyone within earshot with what you have to say. Think carefully about your message, as you can get much accomplished through the power of your words.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Take notice of how your words and thoughts can attract or repel what you want. Focus on ways you can shake self-limiting beliefs around abundance/lack. You have more than you think.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You love to help, but it’s OK to allow people to pick up their own slack sometimes. Give yourself permission to put yourself first this week, if only to conserve your energy and your peace of mind.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Feeling extra sensitive, Leo? Not to worry, it’s just your spirit telling you that you need to do more to nurture yourself. Make it your mission to rest, retreat, and engage in something therapeutic.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
If you’ve been finding yourself in the company of one too many naysayers, complainers, and needy people, remember: ain’t nobody got time for that. Align yourself with people who empower you.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Get on your grind, Libra. Think of ways you can bring more attention to your work or put yourself in the line of vision of the people who can help put you on the top. Now’s the time to bring your A-game.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
With things are moving again, are they moving in the right direction? Stay on track by channeling your time and energy into writing, learning, or anything that pushes you to see the world through a wider lens.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
If debt has been an issue, no use in burying your head under the dirt pretending your money problems will go away. This is your week to come up with realistic solutions. The cosmos have your back.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Though you may not want to admit it, your heart needs some nurturing too. Use this week to either get in some snuggle time with your lover or begin your search for a love that feeds your soul.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
If you’ve been putting off that doctor’s appointment, this is the time to get back on track where it pertains to your well-being. Every little bit counts, even if it’s remembering to stay hydrated.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
If you haven’t been exactly feeling the love yet, this is the perfect week to send out an SOS signal into the Universe regarding matters of the heart. Fresh experiences for fun and romance await you.
