Horoscope for July 18-24

Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Healing on a soul level is possible for you this week, Aries. At the beginning of the week, you may want to retreat so that you can observe the transformation, but even if you have no time to do this, it will happen anyway - most likely during your dream state. A renewed love of your life and yourself is the result of this deep energy shift. When you begin to present the new you, there may be some challenge from people at home, at work, or in your relationships who think you should have checked with them first or who are caught off-guard, but things fall into a new order by the end of the week. The list of things you launch or accomplish bears testimony to the positive new power at work in you.

Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
A powerful week of growth and learning awaits you, Taurus. Friends and organizations are supportive of you and can help you meet your goals. Teaching, learning, writing, and communicating are supported, but there is one small blip on the radar screen. If you enter a conversation already thinking someone will want to oppose you, they probably will. All your lessons this week come down to state of mind and belief. If you think something is too incredible or impossible, it will be and you may not get it, but if you allow for something wonderfully impossible, you could manifest something beyond your imagination. By the weekend, you will be feeling like a Master Mighty Manifestor.

Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
Your creativity and drive is at an all-time high, Gemini. The desire for more money is the motivating factor. You are razor sharp when it comes to knowing what you must do to increase your business or advance in your chosen field, but there may still be blocks to abundance that are inherited from your family or left over on a deep emotional level from past trauma or failure or a past life of restriction or austerity. A surprising emotional revelation may occur this week that helps you get to the core of your prosperity block. Would being famous or highly successful make you feel trapped or pinned down? Do you fear being stuck doing just one thing forever? Having a flex schedule and doing something that offers you variety may be the solution to your self-created limitations. Give it thought - you'll get it.

Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Busy Crab, scurrying around this week, Cancer! Even though the planets are cutting us all some slack now, you may not notice because you are cracking the whip over your own back. Maybe you can feel the last of the sun's personal support this week as it finishes transiting your sign and enters the fire sign of Leo this weekend. Leo rules your 2nd house of money and personal values. This week, you will be expecting the plans you put in place during your own solar cycle to show some signs of fruit - as in money! You could be very aggressive and competitive about pursuing income now and this brings out your tenacious side. People are the means to more work and resources, so you will be communicating and schmoozing. People who oppose you may be surprised to meet your hard, cold shell. The expressions, "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face," and "Don't burn your bridges," apply now.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
If you believe what you do and how you do it is valuable, you will see your income reflect this belief, Leo. You are no more or less busy with work, business, and career than you have been all summer. Your skills and knowledge are in demand. There are planets whispering in your ear now, telling you that your belief in yourself and your worth could be making you a victim of your own limiting beliefs. Giving it away won't make people want you over the next person who offers the same skill or service you do. In fact, if you don't think what you do is absolutely fantastic and worth beaucoup bucks, your employer or customer won't, either. Then, your competitor collects the bucks you are denying. The sun steps into your 1st house of self this weekend. Time for some spit and polish and standing at full attention.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Relationships are your focus this week, Virgo. If you are single and looking for love, it is possible that you may meet someone at the beginning of this week who shares your same values and spiritual beliefs. Practical, analytical, discerning, and sometimes indecisive by nature, you may be shocked by the suddenness of love at first sight. Old fears surrounding a commitment rooted in memories of past failed romances may come up for clearing now. All Virgos, single or matched, may have emotional revelations in all kinds of relationship that lead to self-examination, communication, and a healing that takes relating to a new level.

Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Have you found a passion to pursue and your life purpose yet, Libra? If not, then you may get serious about learning what that might be this week. If you already know you are aligned with your passion and purpose, then you will redirect attention that may have been scattered or diluted in the last few weeks back to what you intend to create or accomplish now. Another possibility for some Libras is a psychological and physical healing that could be a result of forgiving yourself for something and/or accepting all of you - especially the part that strives to be socially accepted, trustworthy, and conservative that is at war with the part that is independent, unpredictable, and liberal.

Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Planets are pouring passion and sensuality into your soul, Scorpio. Maybe it's the sultry nights or all the naked skin summer offers up inspiring you to express that famous seductive Scorpio sexiness. If you have a lover, they are lucky to have you now, but be careful not to smother them with too much of a good thing. Playing a little hard to get can work to your advantage. Whether you are romantically inclined or not now, the same planetary essence responsible for passionate expression in love can also have a pronounced effect on creativity and intuition. This, in turn, affects money. Money and work can come at your command when you turn your attention away from pursuing passion and focus it on receiving and accepting what you ask for.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Absolutely do not gamble or risk more than you can afford to lose this week, Sagittarius. It may be hard to resist taking a risky chance with money or even romance, but there is a 50/50 chance you will lose. If you win, there is a chance it could shock and rock the established order of your universe, so be prepared to win. Now, what Sagittarian can resist an opportunity like that? The same kind of energy that sends a warrior into a battle where the odds are in the enemy's favor is guiding you now. Keep your eye on the prize, whatever that may be to you. Home and family may need some time and attention now, in between an above-average workload. Keep your physical energy up with healthy eating and deliberate rest and exercise. A short sightseeing trip or visiting company is possible, too.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
This is one of those horoscope weeks, Capricorn, where what may happen depends a lot on where you are now in your life and relationships. The only constant for all Capricorns is increased creativity and communication that can be applied toward advancing your business or career. Home, family, and relationship are the unsettled areas. Buying or selling a home or suddenly having to move is possible. A sudden change with a family member moving in or out or a surprise, such as news of an unexpected pregnancy or hearing, "Mommy, look what followed me home! Can I keep him?" is also possible. Also, how you feel about someone could be up for review or they may be reviewing how they feel about you. Emotions run deep for you this week and decisions may be along the lines of serious, but the "Highest Good" rule is also in effect, so no matter how things may appear in a life-changing moment, it is for the best.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Write some catchy money and prosperity affirmations, Aquarius. Now, put them to music or a beat and cheer yourself on all week long. Seriously - take this seriously, but have fun with it, too. Make that Treasure Map you've been putting off. Make a new list of the things you want, both materially and emotionally. This is a powerful week to clarify what you want and make it manifest, especially for you. If you keep shining the high light of joy and cheerful, focused intent on the fear monster in your closet of the subconscious that threatens you with failure and loss, you can bring about a radical change. That monster may not leave, but it will know who is boss. You'd better get ready to receive, because the rewards for your work and creativity can only be accepted by you. Say yes, yes, yes to what you want.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
A new cycle begins for you this week, Pisces, as the week begins with the moon in your sign. You may have read a few other 'scopes or my weekly astrological trends report and gotten the inkling that it is a potentially powerful week for manifesting dreams and material things. It is even more so for you if you take the time to clarify what you want. Are you old enough to remember the Sears catalog that came to your house before Christmas when you were a child? There is a certain age of innocence in childhood that doesn't question how the wished-for item will get paid for or when it will arrive. The price next to the item desired is meaningless. If you can tap into that innocence, let go of the how and when, and the judgments of what is realistic or not, you may have a surprising manifestation so good, it has to be true! You may also recommit to a business plan and get back on track with business promotion.
