Perceptions shift so quickly that what you think you see is changing second by second while you watch with awe this kaleidoscope we call “reality.”
It’s a rolling thunder week, with so many planets shifting positions that you’ll hear them slip and slide together. Monday the Full Moon in Aquarius is the third of three SuperMoons (11:17 AM, PDT) that set the stage for thinking outside the box.
Unconventional lines of reasoning combine with spiritual epiphanies to create insights that can rock your world.
The Sun catches creative fire in Leo Monday morning for a snap, crackle, pop breakfast that begins a month of volcanic eruptions, life-changing acts of courage. A toast to those you love, a pledge of your continued loyalty, and enough enthusiasm to heat what you're passionate about to the alchemical boiling point.
Venus starts cleaning her brushes to start work on a new canvas. Paint your goals into reality with this Venus now in Virgo. She brings order and clarity to your art and your heart.
Your focus narrows to the details. A chance to put more organization into your work if you slow down, or if you try to keep the pace at 3000 rpm you’ll just hit a big wall. Restraint of pen and tongue needs to accompany the silent seething you’ll feel Saturday. Still, anger needs to be vented or it’ll implode rather than explode where it can be seen and dealt with.
“At the height of laughter, the world is thrown into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.”
♡ Date Night: Venus in Virgo and Mars in Cancer
A well stocked pantry, bright shiny pots and pans, fresh herbs from your organic garden, combine to make love a healthy meal to be shared, a food to be eaten. Love’s the most nourishing of “diets.” And if you stir in some erotic exercise you’ll even lose weight! You need to add some action to this luxurious menu or you’ll never make it off the couch this weekend! Life is so good! Such a feeling of well being between you and your loved one that for now the relationship seems easy. Drink it up!
The Force of Kaleidoscopes is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of July 21-27, 2013:
(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of page)
Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
With the Sun’s move into the house of your buddy Leo, your personality shines brighter for the next month with a nobility of spirit and generosity of the heart. Venus has just left Leo so you feel less outgoing and more analytical for the next four weeks. Insights about home and family that you’ve thought but not said, are said this week. The Moon has your friendships glowing! Friday afternoon starts a very powerful but volatile few days for your emotions.
Taurus ♉ (April 20-May 20)
The Leo Sun would ordinarily be a harsh light on your cool and collected Taurus spirit, but you naturally share Leo’s practical philosophical and spiritual outlook. The relief of getting your thoughts out of a circular spin and into meaningful action will boost your mental energy for the next three weeks. Write a recipe book! Darth Vader visits you Saturday with a dare. Look more closely at the wounds you hide under your lovely facade, they may have healed more than you know.
Gemini ♊ (May 21-June 20)
Finally, you get the wind back in your sails! Moving forward with ideas that have be waterlogged will be easy now that Messenger Mercury has turned to direct motion, the Aquarius SuperMoon added flashes of the avante garde to your thinking, and the Sun’s move to Leo warmed your heart. It’s “reach out and touch someone” week for you. A few snares later in the week are thrown in by bottom-line Pluto. You can’t be satisfied with chit chat, you have to take it deeper. Saturday afternoon shifts your mood to light and lively for the weekend.
Cancer ♋ (June 21-July 21)
Don’t overthink it! The Aquarius Full Moon puts too much on your plate for the beginning of the week, but you are enjoying such an abundance of energy and enthusiasm that the zeal with which you jump (or maybe wade) into action will carry any project to a successful completion. You may feel more jittery than last week, so patience with other people’s insensitive remarks. They’re suffering from an impulsivity you don’t have. You can afford to relax at home. Buy some new cookware.
Leo ♌ (July 22-August 22)
Saying goodbye helps you turn and say hello to something new. You enter your birthday month this Monday which begins a time of letting go and a clearing of the space for your New Year which begins on your birthdate (this date, when the Sun is at the same degree as your birth, comes earlier through time until it’s the day before by the time you’re in your 50’s). Monday also brings you surprisingly brilliant out-of-the-box ideas and the focus to make good use of them. Plans that have been brewing since June 26th now shift to forward gear.
Virgo ♍ (August 23-September 22)
Venus is adding a decorative touch to your desire to organize and beautify your home and surroundings. For the next four weeks Venus in your sign may make you more critical of those you love, as you try to push them to your standards of perfection. You’ll only end up lonely as you retreat into your work. Your healing touch is also magnified and is your way through to relationships that actually are crying for your love and attention. (yes, you are too!) You’ve got plenty of self-confidence coming your way so that you put whole-hearted involvement in all you do.
Libra ♎ (September 23-October 22)
A SuperMoon of freedom in the way you express yourself starts your week with unusual developments in your relationships. You’re in a “don’t fence me in” kind of mood which, when added to your iron fist in a velvet glove, makes you a warrior (who's still very friendly!). The Sun’s move to Leo is very good for your heart, keeping it open and courageous. An obstacle or two later in the week forces you to chose between your will be done, or joining your willpower with a higher power. Easy choice if you want to be happy.
Scorpio ♏ (October 23-November 21)
You’ll feel a shift in the Force this week from contemplation to urgency to take action. Heed the flashing red lights this weekend when you’re tempted to use your very powerful will to get what you want, even though it’s not what’s good for you. Stop and think how your inner needs, personal and unique to you, can be expressed through the universal Force for the benefit of all concerned. You have a wonderful zeal and zest that’s fortunately contained enough that it saves you from being a fanatic about your ideas. If you take this energy to the business arena, you’ll turn it into money!
Sagittarius ♐ (November 22-December 20)
The cosmos has hit your “refresh” button! Blood rushes to your head and and your vital energies are mobilized. Your innate honesty of expression finds a renewed zeal for being frank and outspoken (but please hit pause now and then and think before you hit send!). Your heartfelt generosity will bridge any gaps in understanding with a gentleness of spirit. You may feel like getting up on your soap box because your confidence is so high. Make you speech, and your personal changes, count for those here at home. You can still maintain lofty ideals, even if it just your next door neighbor that you help.
Capricorn ♑ (December 21-January 19)
Venus starts a beautification project in your 8th house of corporate money, deeds and trusts. Answer a major call to integrate your wisdom with the power of personal force you have at your disposal. You’ll want to talk about it, and you’ll receive many calls and messages. You’re not in the mood to take “No” for an answer. Might makes right is a philosophy that usually leads to violence, but in your mind it gets blended with your superb integrity and comes out as very enterprising business decisions; with a few flutters of anxiety around the edges!
Aquarius ♒ (January 20-February 17)
The SuperMoon in your sign this Monday starts your week on the note of building alliances and completing projects in which you were able to exert great personal power. Like the values of the Age of Aquarius, you are in a period of linking with like-minded souls and sharing ideas and resources for social change. The Sun’s move to Leo creates a tailwind of courageous action with all your relationships. You take a big step forward in consciousness, knowing that what you think is what you create.
Pisces ♓ (February 18-March 19)
Zealous action. Your natural ability to pay attention to the small and beautiful things in life gets a helping hand from the goddess of love for the next four weeks. Love, and being of service to others, will be the principles around which you’ll organize your life now. You’re not inclined to do anything halfway, which helps you overcome your innate shyness and put yourself out there. Make yourself take the stage. You look good there!
