Weekly Horoscope for July 22 – 28
Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Venus in Virgo is square the Moon; Mercury in Leo is trine the Moon. A square aspect (connection) is usually problematic; a trine aspect is usually very easy. However, with Mercury going retrograde* at any minute, it would be best not to count on the trine energy too much and instead just deal with whatever comes along.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Mars, Saturn, and Pluto are joined with the Moon in Capricorn – see the note below** and remember to award yourself kudos for each job well done.
Friday (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse), Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
The Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius would be a great time to intentionally shake up an area of your life so that you can introduce & absorb new and exciting things (or situations or people). The house (section) in your chart that has Aquarius on the cusp (beginning edge) would be the best place to start because that house rules (is associated with) the part of your life that wants attention now & for the next six months.
In reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! Don’t have an astrology chart? Click here .

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).
▪ v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.
∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde)
