This week’s Astrology
- The Sun is in Cancer until July 22.
During this time many people may seem withdrawn or introverted. Many peoples’ attention will shift inward to their home, family and anything that gives emotional security and nurturing.
Most people are very sensitive to the moon phases while the Sun is in Cancer.
- Venus is in Leo until July 22.
Love is everywhere. While in our day to day lives we may be introverted with the Sun in Cancer – with Venus being in Leo we are very affectionate to our loved ones and can be super clingy. This is a time that you may notice yourself (or your partner) seemingly feeding off the attention you give them. Pride and Passion go hand in hand – just be careful not to let your ego take over.
- Venus sesquiquadrate Pluto July 17-18.
This can sometimes foreshadow self-sabotage. Just keep your ego and jealousy in check. You may be overreacting.
- Venus sesquiquadrate Uranus July 19-20.
Don’t toy with other peoples’ emotions and don’t be flaky! When Venus sesquiquadrates Uranus it can cause some who are sensitive to Venus’s alignment to be very drawn to be close to someone and not know why. If you do this – it will ultimately be unsatisfying and you may be hurting the feelings of the person on the other end of things.
- Venus semi-square Mercury July 20.
Any new relationships may experience a very shallow superficial form of communication around this time. Maybe you both suddenly become very awkward around each other. The combination of Venus sesquiquadrate Uranus and semi-square Mercury on the same day can really cause a new relationship to totally melt down.
- Venus opposite Neptune July 25-26.
Not a good time to start a new relationship, which could be characterized by disappointments, and the tendency to feel emotionally (and sometimes financially) drained by the partner. Uncertainties about existing love.
- Venus sextile Saturn July 26.
Relationships are stabilized and steady, although feelings are expressed reservedly, formally, or sparingly. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships. Relationships begun under this influence possess a distinctly practical theme, almost as if the partnership is a business endeavor.
