Your Horoscope This Week: 3rd July to 9th July, 2022

·12-min read

July’s cosmic weather begins gently, even if some of us have discovered that the world we live in is anything but. These realisations — about justice and the lack of it, about bodily autonomy and how fragile it is — are uncomfortable for those who are new to them. And they are grave reminders for the ones who have always lived on the edge of acceptability — or dangerously far beyond that edge. This tension between knowing and the cost of that knowing is mirrored in the sky on 3rd July when Mercury in Gemini makes a quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn.

Pallas enters Gemini the following day, reminding us that while “independence” has always been in short supply, resistance is both a verb and a noun — a place where lovers meet. Mars enters Taurus on the 5th of July, the same hour that Mercury enters Cancer. They form a radiant sextile in the sky, a reminder that to our heartfelt words we must put our tenacious actions.

The following day, Venus in Gemini makes a sextile to Chiron in Aries, giving us new ways to say the unsayable, turning the stories of survivors into swords — a perfect offering for the first-quarter moon in Libra on the 6th, who knows a thing or two about the swords that are forged in the spirit of defiance. Vesta, the keeper of the sacred flame, stations retrograde in Pisces on the 7th. Meanwhile, 8th July begins with a square between the Sun in Cancer and Chiron in Aries, reminding us that there’s healing to do on all fronts. Our reconnaissance occurs in the realm of dreams, where new fires must be kindled and relit to keep hope alive.

With ardent Mars moving into diligent Taurus come 5th July, and charming Venus still in over-committed Gemini, it’s probably true that there’s never a dull moment in the Taurean landscape!

<h2>Cancer Sun & Cancer Rising</h2><strong><br></strong>It’s your party, Cancer, and you can cry if you want to. When I say party, I mean everything that the Sun in Cancer touches and everything left to the moon and her big prying eye. If your private world or the world at large has got you down, it’s your right to feel it out until you feel it all the way through. In your big Cancerian heart, you know that feeling is not antithetical to acting, one catalyses the other. Perhaps that’s why it can be easier to cry for others, with others, and ride the waves of those tears to the steady shore of action and assistance. Perhaps that’s why it can be hard to let your feelings for your own self move through you until they settle at the shore of who you are and what you need to feel safe, seen, and cared for. To ride those waves is to admit that something you are doing needs to change and own up to all the reasons you don’t want it to. <span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Scorpio Sun & Scorpio Rising</h2><br>I know you’ve heard it before, Scorpio, and it can only hold true for so long before you don your detective hat once more, but shit really doesn’t have to make sense.
