Your weekly horoscope (29 July to 04 August 2019) analysis can provide insights on the crucial planetary movements and its impact on your life.
Your desire to innovate is still going strong as you learn that there is much to do in the world. Your desire to be first means that you are always willing to throw yourself into whatever needs doing. Have you stopped to think about what you can add to something new in life? You have a fresh, energizing perspective that has a lot to give, and you shouldn’t keep this to yourself, but you do need to be mindful of not coming on too strong. Your passion can be all-consuming, and it needs to be moderated so that it burns bright like a steady flame rather than consumes all in its path like a forest fire. Moderating your fiery energy is your life’s lesson, as well as understanding why winning is so essential to you. Does the taking part mean anything to you? What if you come second, or last? What lessons can you learn from participation alone, rather than victory?
You will continue to practice solitude as this is a great way for you to restore yourself to equilibrium. You may wish to practice earthing, walking barefoot in nature, to keep yourself grounded. As an earth sign, you will learn these lessons more readily than others, as you are naturally responsive to Mother Earth. When you lose contact with her, it is essential that you find ways to connect with her yet again. Your ability to communicate in a clear and practical way helps you exchange ideas effectively and this only emboldens your ability to innovate. When others listen, you feel validated and you have the staying power to produce earth-shattering results. Remember, your totem is the bull and the bull is both placid and powerful in equal measure. Call upon either energy when needed.
What does being a Gemini mean to you? How does it resonate in your life? Your element is air, and air has a way of moving, changing, discovering and then moving on. You love variety. More than that, you crave it. The interchange and interplay between people and ideas excite you. Sitting for too long and stagnating spoils you. What adventures can you have? What can you learn? How can you sate that bottomless urgency for knowledge? Lending focus to your busy mind is a wonderful way to truly connect with who you are, and what your purpose is. Using that mercurial brain and putting it to work to cultivate money is a very useful and practical way to put your imagination to good use. Domestically, you are prone to quarrel, perhaps just for the mental exercise. Channel this energy elsewhere.
Emotions are one of the key ways in which we experience the world. They enrich our experience. Would we truly want to dull our emotions? No. But what do we do when they become too intense and overwhelming to manage? You are nourishing and nurturing sign, and your ability to feel is your greatest gift. You have the ability to feel overwhelming sensitivity for all life, and you are protective, devoted and caring. Put this passion towards the environment, people and animals. Champion a cause. Your gentle nature becomes quite tenacious when you are caring for others, and you must remember this when you are feeling more feeble than fierce. There is a great strength in the crab’s nature, you only need to have faith in yourself.
Working on your self-confidence is this week’s task. You can’t always pull energy out of others or bask in their attention or validation. Sometimes, this must come from within. We must create a rich inner world so that we can draw upon it for sustenance when others seek to starve us. What does confidence look like to a regal lion? Is your identity about how others perceive you? What they can give you? What you can do? How did you look? How might this evolve with time? Fear of failure may be driving you. Remember, we are all on this earth to learn. Be open to the lesson’s life is showing you. Do not be afraid of failing the test. There is no true failure, not in the way we imagine it as humans.
You are driven by mercurial Mercury, who is whoever on the move, fastest of all planets. This should give you some clues as to your own nature. You long to learn, to live, to understand, and you are able to hone in on the finer details. You notice things that others do not, and you also know how to slot the pieces into a larger puzzle. Sometimes you need to take a step back so that you can see the wood for the trees. Looking at things under a microscope is a useful skill, but you must caution against perfectionism, pedantry, and fussiness as this can lead to neurosis. Understanding that having a fine eye is a great gift but losing yourself to it is something else entirely. Our greatest assets can become weaknesses if we do not learn to develop ourselves elsewhere. Consider yourself a work in progress, as we all are.
Libra’s are not lazy. That would be unfair, but you do enjoy the finer things in life, a work of art, a beautiful piece of music, a captivating poem. It is a wonderful thing to be able to sit and enjoy life’s song, but hard work is also required to bring fruitful results. Fortunately, you will be infused with tranquil energy that keeps you motivated and focused and maybe quite invigorating for others to be around too. Really sit and think about what it is that you want to accomplish. You are a cardinal sign, so you have the capacity to be a wonderful leader, should you wish to be. You are wonderful at directing others, with your balanced, fair approach. Be a beacon of light for yourself too.
In love, you are a deep, intense and powerful creature. Love is transformative for Scorpios, but you can also be enigmatic and mysterious. Are you showing your partner who you truly are? You may find that the more honest and open you are, the greater sense of intimacy you are able to achieve, and intimacy is what you crave. Deepening your relationships is the theme for this week. Really get into detective mode. What is it that you want from your closest relationships? Talk to your partner. Communication will bring things into being. What is not said fosters distance, and distance is a passion killer for a sign as deeply and profoundly emotional as you.
Few are as jolly as you, but even you must have your down days. Focus on what makes you happy and practice gratitude. If you look around, you’ll find there are a great number of things to appreciate. Your life is a fine one and your constitution and temperament are built for the best. You are able to find the joy in even the smallest of places and that is a truly beautiful thing. Represented by the archer, you should take comfort from this image. The archer goes off into the world galloping seeking adventure, truth, and knowledge. He shoots forth arrows optimistically, just knowing they will make contact with something out of sight. Don’t be afraid. Just because we can’t see, it does not mean something is not there. Consider hope and faith.
You are known as being the slow and steady sign of the zodiac. You don’t plod like Taurus, but you do move consistently. This ensures that progress is always made. You are always on the move up a mountain, and when you reach the top, you are quick to find a new mountain to move to. You’ll notice things happening around you, and this will be heartening. If anything, this is a reminder for you to keep going. You are hugely powerful in a quiet, secure way that can often be overlooked. But don’t forget, power doesn’t always shout from the rooftops. It is something consistent, subtle, enduring, and that is your true gift. There is no fanfare when you reach the top, just the solid, serene feeling of success and accomplishment. Don’t be afraid to celebrate.
This is a great time for you, as you are truly living like the leader you are. You are fixed by nature and able to dig your heels in and keep going. Consider a horse rider, who refuses to move from a bucking stallion. You are able to take life by the reigns and venture into unknown territory. As a leader, you do have a certain obligation to others. Do you want to inspire, motivate, challenge and lead others? Do you want respect, admiration? Do you want to be fair? Leaders can evolve, but don’t lose touch with your tenets. The foundation you set is one you can build upon. Listen to those who follow you. You can become a font of tremendous knowledge and experience and this can help you to be a font of inspiration to all who know you, especially the younger generation who need light in their lives more than ever.
You are learning to speak up and share who you are, something that is not always easy for you to do. Pisces can be inward, like flowing water. We see it move, but we don’t always understand where it is going, or why. Water carries secrets and mysteries, and yet it calms and inspires us. Represented by the fish, you traverse the world of water (emotions) effortlessly. You aren’t afraid to dive deep and plunge beyond what others know. When you come to the surface, there is a great deal that you can teach those from the world above. Find a language with which you can communicate and share with others. You’ll be surprised at the impact and influence you make, for you often underestimate yourself. Now is your time in the sun, dear Pisces.
