The horoscopes below are written from the perspective of rising signs, but there are threads of meaning if you read for your Sun sign too. If you don’t know your rising sign, or ascendant, you can plug in your birth information here to find it.
Aries rising – Your ruler, Mars, is traveling through Leo right now, which enhances your leadership ambitions. Your creativity and romantic life are getting a huge boost this summer. With Mars in Leo, your heart is in charge, so follow a meaningful path. Expect a boost with Jupiter going Direct on August 11th, so get yourself organized in the next couple of weeks.
Taurus rising – Your ruling planet, Venus, has moved into Leo, which is squaring your sign. She’s calling on you to accept where you are, and make adjustments so you can move forward in your life. Squares usually require us to contribute something or do some work. There’s a Sun-Venus conjunction in two weeks, which will start a new 8-year creative cycle. What do you want to be making for the next eight years?
Gemini rising – Your ruler, Mercury, is moving into Direct motion tonight in Cancer. It’s excellent that he’s moving forward again, but Cancer severely dulls Mercury’s sharp edge, and makes you focus more on feelings. You’ll feel more up-to-speed in a couple of weeks, so spend this time communicating well with people your love 🙂
Cancer Rising – The Leo New Moon is keeping you focused on your spiritual connection – which has helped you walk through the upheaval of the last month. July has been rough, but things will be easier now. Focus on reorganizing your life. You are benefitted by the North Node (good luck and destiny) in Cancer for the next year or so. Fertility, creativity and vulnerability are all qualities that each sign can aspire to this year.
Leo Rising – New Moon in Leo tonight! Leo is the ONLY sign ruled by the Sun, making you guys stand out. The New Moon, Mars, and Venus in Leo, are all sending you some lovely, fresh energy to get your passions rolling out to the public. You are probably feeling some sparkly energy and excitement this month.
Virgo rising – Your ruler, Mercury is still slogging through Cancer, but at least is now Direct. Focus on your values and financial health this month. It’s a good time for visioning and organization. Once Mercury moves into Leo, and later Virgo, you will be in your element and ready to move forward in your life.
Libra rising – Your dreams are achieved through communication with your social circle, so get out and network in your community. There’s a Sun-Venus conjunction in two weeks, which will start a new 8-year creative cycle. What do you want to be making for the next eight years?
Scorpio rising – Your ruling planet, Mars, has moved into Leo, which is squaring your sign. Mars asks you to climb some steps and make adjustments so you can move forward in your life. Squares usually require us to contribute something or do some work in order to make progress in key areas.
Sagittarius rising – your ruler, Jupiter, is going backwards right now, and you’ve been reassessing things in your life. You are about to make some big changes, especially when Jupiter goes Direct on August 11th. It will feel great – like you can move forward again. Send the next two weeks getting organized and prepared for this positive shift.
Capricorn rising — You are currently expunging and purifying your past with Saturn, Pluto, and the North Node traveling together in Capricorn. At least Saturn (your ruler) is giving you tremendous stability and support! Saturn in Capricorn is in it’s rulership, and it’s energies of discipline, concentration, responsibility, ambition and focus are easily accessed. There might be some big challenges you’re facing; the only way forward is to evolve. The universe is asking you to release any unhealthy motivations around power and control, and to move towards vulnerability.
Aquarius rising – The New Moon in Leo is supercharging your partnership sector – which includes lovers AND biz associates. Wait until the weekend, or even next week, to have important conversations. Have fun this month and don’t take things so personally.
