You weekly horoscope is here. Be sure to usher in Leo season by acting in accordance with your vision and values. Rule of thumb; don’t be drawn into someone else’s ruckus. Other people’s drama is a waste of your time—time that could be spent exploring personal projects, focusing on work (or getting a new job), spending stress-free time with calming people, or simple just being. Be the light you want to see. Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of July 27 through to August 2, 2020, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.
Aries | Aries rising
If you’re straddling a divide between your urge to do your own thing and getting communication clear on the home front, start the conversations you need for clarity. It might feel awkward, but it’s more frustrating to second-guess your gut. Where can you work together and where can you move ahead independently? Ultimately, tune into the voice within. Listen to your gut. On another note, it may be time to step it up a notch at work. You have plenty of ideas and something to say. Don’t be put off; make sure you’re heard if it’s something you feel strongly about.
Taurus | Taurus rising
Focus on what you value this week, Taurus. Honor your highest ideals. It’s easy to be dazzled by what other people project, but it’s often only a part of the whole story, if not entirely an illusion. Enjoy the inspiration others provide, especially groups of people doing something you’d ultimately like to take part in. See the potential but bring your unique slant to it, or it won’t be sustainable in the long run. When you work and relate to others from your core values, you’ll move mountains rather than fail to catch rainbows.
Gemini | Gemini rising
Don’t try to change who you are to meet expectations at work or on social media. Present with your brand of beauty and communication style, and you’ll win both hearts and minds. Your bright ideas, ability to share them, and connect people is an asset to you this week. Put together a hive-mind for a project or idea, and you’ll achieve more. The secret to success is to give others plenty of room to contribute their gift rather than trying to micromanage. Create a framework and foundation then let the talent do their thing.
Cancer | Cancer rising
A close friend or partner may challenge the way you think. Don’t shoot the messenger but do take a breath in that space between cognition and reaction. Whatever the week reveals, remember it’s better to know facts than be under an illusion. Find the hidden nuggets of gratitude for what has catalyzed your growth and remember it’s the challenging situations that allow us to test our mettle and know ourselves on a deeper level. On a similar note, don’t get into a sparring match at work or in a public domain.
Leo | Leo rising
This week your party is just getting started, so extend your light by broadening your horizons. Inspiration from books, people, or media will be like a healing salve. Over the weekend, potential involvement in a group activity could feel a little too iffy for you, but it could catalyze you to spend more time embracing virtual platforms to connect with loved ones. This week is also prime time to try something brand new, if it feels right.
Virgo | Virgo rising
Sharing your ideas and talking to a broader array of people continues to be highlighted this week. There are tells in your voice when you speak with emotion about what you care about, in a way that makes others feel seen. Soak up the greater sense of connection that you often crave. Your opinion or ideas may be challenged but before you get frustrated take a long, hard look at where the opposition is coming from. Sometimes we shine a light onto things others would rather stay hidden for multiple reasons.
Libra | Libra rising
You have plenty of bright ideas at work, so make connections and spread them around. A colleague’s connection could dissolve professional boundaries, which will be inspiring but keep your domestic and public life separate this week. A close one-on-one could find your public or work comms challenging, but it’s your voice, so keep these two areas separate as well if they can’t be integrated.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
Although there are varying degrees of restrictions for most people, any new rules you’re navigating may well be the push you need to reach out further afield. Explore your higher ideals. Perhaps a challenge to your ideas comes from a colleague who can’t see the bigger picture, or even from time spent on tasks when you want to work your way through the entire back catalog of your latest inspiration. Consider how you could contribute your voice to the collective.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
Relationships and domestic life could do with some adjustments this week. How can you creatively adapt a situation between your living arrangements and a significant partnership that’s not quite meshing? If you’re holding back because you don’t want anything but your fantasy or ideal, it may be time for a practical re-assessment. Have the conversation and look at what matters, beyond the superficial. Get clear on what kind of home environment you need for your spiritual or artistic connection.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
The fine art of timing is in knowing what to say and when. You have a sensitive ear this week, so use it to discern messaging from colleagues, family members, lovers, and friends. Don’t write off a relationship because you feel challenged—times change after all, and each connection deserves a bespoke approach for a perfect fit. Stay attuned to the underlying feelings of words rather than superficial statements, although they do matter too. If in doubt, ask for clarity.
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
Share, talk, and cross-pollinate your vision on the work front this week. Draw from your most idealistic or forward-looking ideas. Keep conversation sensitive and compassionate, and be sure to listen. If your knowledge is challenged, establish a personal connection to tune others in, and go from there. This is a great week to learn about an aspect of Health & Fitness that you’re interested in and figure out ways to adapt it into a daily routine.
Pisces | Pisces rising
You have an abundance of creative ideas at the moment but don’t be too impulsive in your rush to complete—or finance—them. If there’s an item you want to buy to support your vision, then research and find the best that will last over time if you’re serious. If you were to take your project out into the world, how would you want to represent yourself? That said, you’ll be incredibly resourceful over the next six months and willing to assert and act according to your values.
