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 18-24.
This week, the stars align for a Full Moon in Capricorn (July 19), which will be the perfect time to set intentions or goals around releasing anything that’s been keeping us from reaching the top. Since Capricorn is a sign that appreciates hard work and due diligence, under the influence of this moon we’re called to take charge of the places in our lives that feel unstable and set them straight. A few days later (July 22), the Sun moves into its home of Leo reminding us that we’re each unique and special in our own way. With Leo season underway, the emphasis will be on creative expression, romance, and bringing our own brand of sunlight to the spaces in our lives and abroad that need it most.
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 at 4 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may feel pulled in 10 different directions this week but consider this moment of confusion the perfect time for you to get clear about what you really want. Hint: it may be on the off beaten path.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This week it’s about re-evaluating what you know in order to breakthrough any self-limiting beliefs. Consider joining forces with someone who wants to take over the world just as much as you do.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You’re often a friend to many, but who’s a friend to you? Right now it’s all about fostering connections that benefit you and your well-being, while leaving the relationships that drain you behind.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A significant relationship could hit a crescendo this week. Though what happens next will solely depend on what your heart truly wants and what feeds your inner fire. Trust your instincts.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Happy Birthday! As you move into the next chapter of your life, just about whatever you desire can be yours with the right amount of passion, planning, and style. The same old, same old won't cut it now.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You’re in the mood for a fairytale kind of romance, which means you could meet someone this week with a soulmate kind of vibe. Just make sure this person is who they say they are.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
This week, it's all about surrounding yourself with people that make you feel like a million bucks (genuine people only, please) as they'll give you the confidence boost you need to make your dreams happen.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
How can you balance your need for freedom with your need to take care of business? Look to ways you can better prioritize your day to day schedule to avoid feeling trapped and overwhelmed.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Continue to think globally as you could get the chance to travel for work or a learning/teaching opportunity or you could get the chance to get your name in print. You have more to work with than you think.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
When it comes to getting what you want this week, you will need to work on first letting go of something that no longer has a place in your life in order to make space for what you desire. Move forward.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Open up talks with a partner in either business or love or consider teaming up with someone who can expose you to a wider audience. If love has been lackluster, use this time to clarify your needs.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This week will be all about taking care of yourself on the inside to feel good on the outside. Look for ways to declutter, detox, and de-stress your mind, body, and environment.
