Here's Your Weekly Horoscope For July 11-17

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 11-17.

After all of the heavy duty feelings that have been hanging in the air, we can use a little playtime to lighten up the mood. Enter Venus (love, money) and Mercury (communication) in fun-loving Leo, beginning July 12. With these two together, you can expect your dance card to fill up pretty quickly, so make sure your energy and your wardrobe is up to par as Leo wants you feeling and looking your best. Later in the week (July 16), there's a tense meet up between the Sun in Cancer and Uranus, the planet of surprises. Although the discomfort will be temporary, consider it your moment to break free of self-limiting thinking, relationships, or emotional entanglements.

Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
