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 25-31.
Uranus, the planet of radical change, begins its five month retrograde in Aries this week (July 29), encouraging us to reassess the places in our lives where we may need to take a more unconventional approach. Meanwhile, Mercury (the planet of communication, info, and learning) moves back home to Virgo on July 30, which means that the emphasis on how we think and share information will be on self-improvement and improving the lives of others. As a result, we’ll be called to use Mercury in Virgo’s penchant for details, analysis, and discernment to help us in making better choices to move forward. Overall, the theme of this week will be about finding the right combination of pragmatism and innovation.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
This is the week to begin reassessing your current path. A new approach to money or love could lead to some major wins. Look to ways you can better tap (and listen to) your intuition. Flaunt your genius.
