July ’17 Horoscope

It was the best of the times, it was the worst of times. July is a mixed bag, bbs, with plenty of highs, lows, and opps to exercise some srs anger management skills–especially where holidays are concerned (eek!). Supreme space witch Remy Ramirez tells you how to cope.

Straight from the center of the Nasty Galaxy, supreme space witch, Remy Ramirez, is spillin’ the secrets of the cosmos…

What up, birthday crustaceans?? Your sign is POPPING. OFF. this month with tons of Cancer-related activity, so let’s get into it. Mars, planet of masculine energy, activation, lust, and getting shit done has been in your sign since last month and will stay put through the 20th, giving you an extra helping hand when it comes to pushing through on projects, advocating for yourself, and gettin’ laid (the Cosmos have willed it, so might as well stock up on this, these babies, and a bathing suit that doubles as an aphrodisiac). The downside of Mars is the overkill, fight-picking aspect it brings, and that may well come into play on the 4th, when the Cosmos usher in some weird vibes that you’re right in the middle of. Mercury in Cancer (that’s you) squares Uranus in Aries that day, which can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer–you again–trines Neptune in Pisces, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, an aspect that can be dope but can also suck a fatty. On the one hand, it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; on the other: embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). Because  you’re at the center of both of these July 5th aspects, it’s super important that you heed my words, Crab Mama: Keep. Shit. Mellow. On the 9th, a full moon in Capricorn lands in your house of partnerships. This can mean boo thangs, but can also mean any kind of pairing up at all (business, etc.). Cap is reliable, trustworthy, and in it for the long haul, and those are all killer attributes to have in a partner, so keep your radar up for the right fit to make an appearance, and when she/he does, go for it. Speaking of boo thangs, Venus is circling your house of possessions most of the month, and this is about manifesting stability in your partnerships. Because you have this steady and dependable full moon feeding your energy–this is a great time to concentrate on relationship commitments that have real meaning for you, whether by kissing the fuckbois goodbye (but like, without any kissing) or by taking things to the next level with bae. It’s also a great time to meet someone srs, so if that’s what you’re into, set your intention at the beginning of the month. Venus brings us some rocky waters in love on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (fist pump), but because you share Pisces’ water element, you may feel the effects a little stronger. To combat the Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). The 20th is a BIG day for you Crab Babes because Sun in Cancer will square Uranus in Aries. It’s a day of upset, but not necessarily in a bad way. What you might find is unexpected outbursts from people or from yourself. The energy is volatile, unpredictable, and rebellious. This could suck and lead to head-butting, but could also lead to breakthroughs, freedom from situations that weigh you down, and sudden changes that are actually a welcome relief. To make the best of the energy, stay flexible, open, and curious–a positive approach can affect the outcome of the situation, so ball’s in your court, Cancer. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. Obvs this won’t affect you directly, being a water baby, but so much fire in such strong planets will influence all of us, so stay alert. This aspect can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this, stay centered in your truth. If any volatile situations should flare up, douse ’em with your water vibes: Cancer’s tenderness is the antidote to Leo’s physical intensity and ego. On the 31st, Venus moves into Cancer–meaning some v romantic vibes are on the horizon come August. So lay low this month, Crab Sister, and keep your eye on the prize.

Hey Leo Mamas! You start the month out transiting the house of possessions, which is SO fun. It’s all about adding to your collection of awesome shit (of course, if you need assistance in this arena, we’re always happy to help). By default, this aspect often means money is flowin’, which, needless to say, is bomb. But while you’re countin’ that stack, remember to put some aside–Leo’s fiery energy isn’t always forward thinking, and the downfall of this house can be spending like whoa and then… crying with woe when it’s time to write that rent check. Have your fun, but remember to adult when you’re throwing down that cc. On the 4th, the Cosmos usher in some weird vibes. Mercury in Cancer will square Uranus in Aries, causing upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. You don’t play a direct role, but since Aries is your fire sister, you may get an extra dose, so keep the 4th low key. On the 5th, we get another aspect that’s a bit of a mixed bag: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, an aspect that can be dope but can also suck a fatty. On the one hand, it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; on the other: embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. You don’t have any direct involvement in this aspect, but it’s one that we’ll all feel the effects of. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). On the 9th, a full moon in Cap will land in your house of inner transformation and subconscious processes. Cap is consistent, hard working, and earnest, and applying this focused energy to the work of inner transformation will have major benefits if you’re clear and intentional about it. Take your subconscious seriously around this day to really reap the benefits–it’s a great time to see a tarot reader with a stellar rep. or have an akashic clearing done by a legit witch. In the bae department, Venus in flirty Gemini is circling your house of communication (which is actually ruled by Gemini–a killer combo!). It’s a GREAT time for filling your cal up with social outings and getting your flirt on at each and every one of them. Whether you’re looking for something lasting or passing, chatting hotties up is the best way to go this month. If you’re taken, keep the fire alive with any and all things communication–letter writing, heart to hearts in bed, nights spent on the phone till 2 am–if it involves words, it will bring romantic feels. Speaking of Venus, the planet of love will be giving us some rocky waters on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (fist pump), but the funkiness will cast a wide net. To combat those Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). On the 19th, you Leo Mamas get a little present from the Cosmos: Mercury in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius. This is stellar for finishing projects, making sound business decisions, and finding friendships that will last a lifetime. Saturn’s influence requires logic and foresight, so apply that to any situation that comes up on this day, and you’re practically guaranteed to hit it out of the park. Speaking of baseball metaphors, the 20th is def a heavy hitter because Sun in Cancer will square Uranus in Aries (your fire sister, making the aspect a bit more potent for you, Leo). It’s a day of upset, but not necessarily in a bad way. What you might find is unexpected outbursts from people or from yourself. The energy is volatile, unpredictable, and rebellious. This could suck and lead to head-butting, but could also lead to breakthroughs, freedom from situations that weigh you down, and sudden changes that are actually a welcome relief. To make the best of the energy, stay flexible, open, and curious on that day–a positive approach can affect the outcome of the situation, so ball’s in your court. On the 23rd, a new moon in Leo paves the way for you Lady Lions to set powerful intentions that create lasting change in the coming year. Be clear and specific about what you want to usher into your life, and write it all down in a list or make a visualization board before you go to bed that night. The more you invest on the back end, the stronger the results. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th–a supes intense placement that you’re all up in, so pay attention. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. Though it’s not so much in your nature, a middle-of-the-road energy will keep you firmly out of shit town on this day, so take your chill pill, smoke a j, bust out that Bob Marley playlist–whatever you gotta do to stay mellow, Leo.


Hey Virgo Sister! You’re getting the month started with the ongoing Virgo lesson: talking it out. The Sun in Cancer lands in your house of communication, and this is a big ‘ole double whammy for you. This house is ruled by the Cosmo’s uber talkative social butterfly, Gemini, but is being filtered through Cancer’s emotional tenderness and vulnerability. Talkative and vulnerable are not Virgo traits, typically speaking, so the combo is going to be especially impactful for you. Keep an eye out for opportunities to come correct, to check your guard at the door, and to create new bonds and opportunities just by introducing yourself to strangers. You don’t have to be an extrovert to try on extroverted behaviors for a night, and with this placement, you’ll find it will work to your benefit, even if it feels awkward af. Speaking of awkward af, the 4th is bringing some v weird vibes. Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries that day, which can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. You don’t have a direct (or even indirect) involvement in this aspect (fist pump), but given the level of weirdness and the fact that it’s a holiday, you should still be on alert. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you, just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on that day, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, which can be dope but can also suck a fatty. Dope because it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; fatty-sucking because it can cause embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). Again, you’re not at the center of this potential meltdown, but the feels are in the air, so you’d do well to keep shit mellow. A full moon in logical Capricorn on the 9th lights up your house of big picture thinking, life philosophies, and long distance travel. Full moons bring our hard work to fruition–it’s the cosmic harvest after sowing our fields. If you’ve been asking big picture questions (e.g. Wtf am I doing with my life?; Should I just move to a cabin in the forest and take up knitting?; or a personal fave: ...Why?), the full moon will help you sift through and reach dependable, straightforward conclusions (Capricorn’s influence will help keep messages clear and to the point). Alternatively, if you’ve been toying with the idea of taking a big trip, keep the 9th in mind–it’s a great time for you to jet set. Meanwhile in romance land, Venus in Gemini will be hitting up your house of home and stability for most of the month. For you single gals, this is a signal that you’ll be dumping that Tinder boo for something more serious and stable. If you’re taken, the vibes are about keeping it at home… literally: romantic baths together, candlelit dinners, hours spent binge watching 30 Rock on Netflix–that’s what’s up. A note, whether you’re single or spoken for: Gemini’s influence on this house will again emphasize your need to communicate your heart’s desires (sorry boo, there’s no way around it this month), so be open, be honest, and be sincere. Speaking of Venus, the planet of love will be giving us some rocky waters on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (YAS), but the funkiness will cast a wide net (boo). To combat those Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex (to which I say: use. your. imagination.). Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. That cool, calm, collected vibe you Virgos are known for will keep you firmly out of shit town on this day, so feel free to zen tf out, no matter what kind of crazy is going on around you.


Hey hey Air Sister! You start out July in the super grounded house of home and stability. Under Cancer’s nurturing, maternal influence, this house opens the door (no pun intended) for laying down roots–both physically and emotionally. On the physical front, this is a great time for finding a new apartment, buying a house, applying feng shui, and/or nesting. Emotionally, it’s a great time to look inward at your internal landscape (bc Cancer’s got ALL the feels) and see what kind of “home” you’re creating for those emotions to live in: are they being nurtured by your self-love and compassion, or are they being cut down by your criticism and judgement? If it’s more the latter, now’s the time to apply Cancer’s healing energy to those wounds: baths, long walks at sunset, writing in your journal–all things emotionally luxurious will act as a salve, so get your pamper on. In other news, the 4th is bringing some v weird vibes. Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries that day, which can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. You don’t have a direct (or even indirect) involvement in this aspect (fist pump), but given the level of weirdness and the fact that it’s a holiday, you should still be on alert.

It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra (that’s you!), which can be dope but can also suck a fatty. Dope because it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; fatty-sucking because it can cause embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it–even more so for your since you’re directly involved in this aspect. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). On the 9th, a full moon in Capricorn falls into your house of fame and career, which is fucking sweet. As you know, full moons are about the fruits of our labor; they’re like the check at the end of those two long weeks. Capricorn isn’t a flashy sign, but it’s lasting, dependable, and great with money–all fabulous aspects to influence how this full moon shows up for you. Keep an eye out around that day for new professional opportunities that feel like a good, solid deal, or for upgrades in your current job sitch. In terms of boo thangs, Venus is circling your house of pleasure and fun. This house is killer for flirting (incidentally, so are these, this, and these cuties), so get out there and work that Libra charm. One note: This house is great for fun and games, but not great for serious connections, so as long as you go into the month knowing that, you’ll have a ball. There is one day to be careful of in the love department: On the 17th, Venus (in Gemini) will be giving us some rocky waters with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (YAS), but because you share Gemini’s air element, you may well get an extra dose (boo). To combat the Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones; they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla. To make up for the funk, the Cosmos are sending a SUPER nice aspect on the 18th: Venus in Gem trine Jupiter in Libra (yasss Libra!). It’s a day of major love feels–romantic, platonic, familial–good feels across the board. It’s also a great day for mending difficult or stressed relationships, so keep that in mind if you’ve been meaning to pass an olive branch. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You Libras are famous for arguing your point into the ground when something gets you heated, but you’re also known for your diplomacy skills and laid back approach. Go with the latter on this day–the aspect is too volatile to ef with. Bust out your guitar and 6-pack, and head to a bonfire. Jack Johnson tunes highly encouraged.

Sup, Scorp?! You start out the month in what may well be my favorite house–the house of pleasure, fun, creativity, and general lightheartedness. It’s being fueled by this social and chatty Sun in Gemini, which is such a good combo. This house is about taking on your inner child (not always easy for you complex water signs), so things like sleepovers with besties, Crayolas and coloring books, a day at the water park–they all need to hit the top of your priority list. Extra points for anything that involves words/talking (Gemini loves these): gab sessions with gfs, crossword puzzles–you get the picture. It’s all fun and games (literally), but there are a couple days that could totes harsh your mellow. On the 4th, the Cosmos usher in some weird vibes when Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, an aspect that can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. The whole vibe lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. (Note: You’re not directly involved in this aspect, but because you share that water element with Cancer, you’re that much more susceptible and def should be conscientious of the vibes.) On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya (which, btw, you’ll get an extra helping of since you share the water element with both Cancer and Pisces–sweet!), but then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, an aspect that can be dope but can also suck a fatty. On the one hand, it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; on the other: embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all. On the 9th, a full moon in loyal, dependable Capricorn lands in your house of social groups and aspirations. Full moons bring us the proverbial paycheck at the end of our laboring, and for you, this means cosmic gifts in the area of dreams and aspirations. Whatever you’ve invested toward making your dreams a reality will be rewarded around the 9th (making it a great day for business negotations!). Because friends and crews play such a central role in this house, you may also find that your girls are key players in bringing you these cosmic blessings, so be open to receiving a helping hand. To augment this, Venus is going to light up your 6th house of work this month, bringing lots of heart eyes and feminine energy to your professional field. It’s a placement that gets you loving the work you do, and devoting yourself to it passionately. It also attracts feminine energy, so companies/projects that are woman-centric are favored under this position. On the other hand, it could be about landing that cutie in the cubicle next door, and if so here are a few things to help seal the deal. Speaking of Venus, she’ll bring some rocky waters in love on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (fist pump), but because you share Pisces’ water element, you may feel the effects a little stronger. To combat the Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). On the 20th, the Sun in Cancer, your water sister, will square Uranus in Aries. It’s a day of upset, but not necessarily in a bad way. What you might find is unexpected outbursts from people or from yourself. The energy is volatile, unpredictable, and rebellious. This could suck and lead to head-butting, but could also lead to breakthroughs, freedom from situations that weigh you down, and sudden changes that are actually a welcome relief. To make the best of the energy, stay flexible, open, and curious–a positive approach can affect the outcome of the situation, so ball’s in your court, Scorp. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. Obvs this won’t affect you directly, being a water baby, but so much fire in such strong planets will influence all of us, so stay alert. This aspect can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this day, focus on your creative efforts and getting laid–don’t pick fights or engage in any difficult convos. Though you’re a water sign, you can get pretty damn fired up, so remember to keep those waters mellow and sexy (your forte), and you’ll do just fine.

Hey hey Sag Sisters! You’re stepping into summer with your nose to the grindstone, namely: a cruise through the house of work and health. It’s a placement that means business, and you may find that you’re investing the bulk of your time staying late at the office. This house could easily be dubbed the “burnout house,” and because it’s linked up with your health, you gotta watch out for going overboard with the overtime. Take breaks, eat, and above all–get sleep! If you catch an evil cold from running yourself ragged, it’ll be lights out on all those projects you’re slaving away on, so take literal care of yourself, boo. On the 4th, the Cosmos usher in some weird vibes when Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, an aspect that can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. The whole vibe lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?).

On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces, elevating everyone’s creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, but then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, an aspect that can be dope but can also suck a fatty. On the one hand, it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; on the other: embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all. On the 9th, a full moon in your zodiac neighbor, Cap, will light up your house of the subconscious. Cap wants things to be logical, direct, and efficient; the subconscious operates in symbols, images, and code. So how can you make the two work together to harness the energy of this full moon? Address your subconscious in a concrete way: get an akashic clearing, see a really good psychic, or just write in your journal. Being structured in deciphering your subconscious’ needs and desires will bring TONS of blessings on this full moon, Archer Mama. In the love department, Venus is sending heart eyes to your house of partnerships. This is hot stuff if you’re looking for that perma-boo; it’s about long-lasting commitment, deep feels, and even marriage/engagement in some cases. If you’re already attached, this placement is about deepening your commitment to each other, so keep an eye out for ways to strengthen the bond (since Venus is in talkative Gemini, I would highly suggest long heart-to-hearts). Speaking of Venus, the planet of love will be giving us some rocky waters on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF.

This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex (here are just few things to help on that front).  Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You’re one of the most optimistic signs in the zodiac, and you’re the only sign that gets along with every other sign–use that goodwill and upbeat nature to sidestep any kerfuffles and keep the one love vibes flowin’.

Hey there, Cap! You start the month out circling the house of partnerships and commitment. Loyal and dependable as you are, this house gels nicely with your Cap disposition. The only kicker is that it’s being influenced by Cancer’s moody, emotional sensibilities–not your favorite. The Cosmos are asking you to be brave in your vulnerability when it comes to the people you’ve chosen to team up with or are going to team up with this month. Though that’s not your favorite, it’s really good practice for you tougher-skinned Earth Sisters and will usher in the kind of partnerships you ultimately want to commit to: where being all of yourself is supported and nurtured. On the 4th, we get some v weird vibes when Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, causing upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. You don’t have a direct (or even indirect) involvement in this aspect (fist pump), but given the level of weirdness and the fact that it’s a holiday, you should still be on alert. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you, just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on that day, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, which can be dope but can also suck a fatty. Dope because it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; fatty-sucking because it can cause embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). Again, you’re not at the center of this potential meltdown, but the feels are in the air, so you’d do well to keep shit mellow. On the 9th, a full moon in Capricorn is sending you all kinds of good vibes. Full moons are payback for the hard work we’ve invested in seeing our dreams come true–when one lands in our Sun sign (as is happening for you this month), it’s fucking awesome for opening doors and getting yesses across the board. Hold business meetings, give presentations, and apply for loans on this day. Money matters are favored, so def keep that in mind. As far as boos are concerned, Venus is navigating your house of sex and transformation–where the sun was hanging out for you last month–asking you to look at your sexuality as a transformative opportunity for connection (which will only be compounded by the Sun in emotional Cancer hitting up your house of partnerships). As far as I can tell, the Cosmos are sending you these repetitive messages to hammer you with lessons around intimacy and letting go. Embrace it, Cap! The more openhearted we are, the safer we are; counterintuitive, but true. Speaking of Venus, the planet of love will be giving us some rocky waters on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (YAS), but the funkiness will cast a wide net (boo). To combat those Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex (heed the call, Cap, heed the call!). Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You Caps are famously good under pressure, and that will be a huge asset with all this wild fire energy blazing around–Mama Goat to the rescue.

Hey Air Sister! You start the month circling the house of transformation and sex, obvs one of my favorite houses. It’s a placement that has no time or use for one-night-stands; its requisites include emotional depth, reflection, and personal growth. Sometimes the sexuality can be subbed for creativity, and you may find that it’s your art that’s pushing you to connect with deeper waters. This aspect is being influenced by Cancer’s sensitive, vulnerable nature, so prepare yourself for some real feels–and when they surface, don’t push them away, Aquarius! They’re there to teach you some v important shit, so process them adult-style (pro tip: this does not involve drinking, sorry bb). In other news, the 4th is bringing some v weird vibes. Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries that day, which can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere. You don’t have a direct (or even indirect) involvement in this aspect (fist pump), but given the level of weirdness and the fact that it’s a holiday, you should still be on alert. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you, just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on that day, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, which can be dope but can also suck a fatty. Dope because it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; fatty-sucking because it can cause embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. You’re not a direct player in this one either, but because you share Libra’s air element, you may feel the effects a bit more. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). On the 9th, a full moon shines its light into your 2nd house of possessions–holla! This is killer for money matters and for adding to your artillery of cute shit (so like, um, hi). Just be careful the extra cash flow doesn’t lead to a spending spree you’ll live to regret when it’s time to pay that August rent! In the love department, Venus is flirting it up with your house of longterm life philosophies and expansive travel. This could mean that you find a whirlwind romance whilst vacaying overseas (yes please), or that you’re thinking more longterm in the love department. (Considering the Sun is cruising through your house of sex and transformation, the latter is highly likely). Be open to shifting into serious dating, and if you have someone already, look at how you can connect on more emotionally expansive levels (cough vulnerability cough). There is one day to be careful of in the love department: On the 17th, Venus in Gemini will be giving us some rocky waters with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (YAS), but because you share Gemini’s air element, you may well get an extra dose (boo). To combat the Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones; they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla. To make up for the funk, the Cosmos are sending a SUPER nice aspect on the 18th: Venus in Gem trine Jupiter in Libra (both air signs, aka you’ll get an extra dose of the juju!). It’s a day of major love feels–romantic, platonic, familial–good feels across the board. It’s also a great day for mending difficult or stressed relationships, so keep that in mind if you’ve been meaning to pass an olive branch. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You Aquarians have an incredible knack for not giving any fucks about the nonsense that goes on around you, and you’d do well to tap into that ability to disconnect should any b.s. surface toward the end of the month.

Real talk, Pisces: It’s time to get serious about your future. Or anyway, that’s what the Cosmos are telling me. You’re circling the house of longterm life philosophies, which is about how you see the world in relationship to your life. Do you trust the Universe? Do you believe in fate or free will? Do you invest in the law of attraction (bc if not we have a few things that might be v convincing on that front). This transit wants you to expand the realm of possibility, to have your mind blown by what you find out just by asking questions and staying open to new, unexpected answers. Either that, or it wants you to take a massive trip, as this house also oversees overseas travels (see what I did there?). Bottom line: whether it’s your mind expanding or your range of experiences, the stars want to reward you for stretching out of your comfort zone, so don’t let ’em down. On the 4th, the Cosmos usher in some weird vibes. Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries that day, causing upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. You don’t have a direct hand in this business, but sharing Cancer’s water element makes you a little more susceptible to the vibes, so play it safe. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces (that’s you), elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, an aspect that can be dope but can also suck a fatty. On the one hand, it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; on the other: embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). On the 9th, a full moon in Cap will send some love to your house of communication. This is a great time to set up talks of any kind–business or personal–and to hit the bars to get your chat on with friendly strangers. Publishing is also favored under this placement, so if you have anything going on there (blog posts, zines, book deals), this is a great time to forge ahead with plans. In the bae department, Venus is transiting your house of career, status, and reputation (dude. yes.). This placement means your professional milkshake might bring some wide-eyed groupies to the yard, or that you will get some extra love in the career department– aka being looked on favorably by higher ups who want to boost your status. You may also find that a woman or woman-centric job gives you an extra push in your career. It’s pretty damn good, but on the 17th, Venus will be giving us some rocky waters with a square to Neptune in Pisces (you, ugh). It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re all up in this one, Fish Mama, so to combat the Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones; they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla. On the 20th, the Sun in Cancer, your water sister, will square Uranus in Aries. It’s a day of upset, but not necessarily in a bad way. What you might find is unexpected outbursts from people or from yourself. The energy is volatile, unpredictable, and rebellious. This could suck and lead to head-butting, but could also lead to breakthroughs, freedom from situations that weigh you down, and sudden changes that are actually a welcome relief. To make the best of the energy, stay flexible, open, and curious–a positive approach can affect the outcome of the situation, so ball’s in your court, Pisces. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. Obvs this won’t affect you directly, being a water baby, but so much fire in such strong planets will influence all of us, so stay alert. This aspect can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this day, focus on your creative efforts and getting laid–don’t pick fights or engage in any difficult convos. Normally, I would encourage you to counteract that Pisces inclination to hide in the face of conflict, but this struggle is so real that I’m legit down with you chilling to your Emo playlist all day till the stars mellow tf out.

Ugh, Aries, why are you such a queen?? You’re circling the house of career and fame this month, and with all that fire you got goin’ on, it’s such a good combo! This isn’t so much a house about working late hours (though you may well be doing that); it’s a house that brings the blessings from all the hard work you’ve done in the past: execs who want to get lunch, bosses who want to promote you, name in lights and red carpet affairs. It’s all the fun stuff, so be on the lookout for praise and accolades, Ram Mama. On the 4th, the Cosmos usher in some weird vibes that you’re right in the middle of. Uranus in Aries (that’s you) squares Mercury in Cancer that day, an aspect that can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. The whole vibe lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces, elevating everyone’s creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, but then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, an aspect that can be dope but can also suck a fatty. On the one hand, it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; on the other: embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all. On the 9th, a full moon in Cap lights up your house of home and stability. This is great! Cap loves all things predictable, logical, and solid, and will send lots of supportive vibes to this house for you, making the 8th-10th a killer time to buy a house, rent a new place, or do anything that solidifies your physical living situation. This house can also refer to your internal landscape (emotional and mental wellbeing). Capricorn’s firm, equalizing disposition will send balancing energy there, too, so use those dates for anything that requires a calm, collected approach (tough personal talks, business negotiations, getting out of a Trader Joe’s parking lot). In terms of boo thangs, Venus in Gem is transiting your house of dreams, aspirations, and social spheres. Gemini is super flirty and chatty, and this house is about making dreams come true through your friend circle and any organizations you belong to. If you’re looking to get attached, this is a great time to have your homies set you up or, like, hit that co-ed book club you signed up for but never went to. Put yourself out there, let your crew know you’re lookin’, and see what magic comes to you. If you’re already attached, incorporate bae into your social fold. Quality time isn’t always one-on-one–hanging out in groups can be a huge turn-on and bring you closer, too. Speaking of Venus, the planet of love will be giving us some rocky waters on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (fist pump), but the funkiness will cast a wide net. To combat those Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). On the 19th, you get a little present from the Cosmos: Mercury in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius (your fire sister–meaning you’ll get a little extra love!). The vibes are stellar for finishing projects, making sound business decisions, and finding friendships that will last a lifetime. Saturn’s influence requires logic and foresight, so apply that to any situation that comes up on this day, and you’re practically guaranteed to hit it out of the park. Speaking of baseball metaphors, the 20th is def a heavy hitter because Sun in Cancer will square Uranus in Aries (that’s you!). It’s a day of upset, but not necessarily in a bad way. What you might find is unexpected outbursts from people or from yourself. The energy is volatile, unpredictable, and rebellious. This could suck and lead to head-butting, but could also lead to breakthroughs, freedom from situations that weigh you down, and sudden changes that are actually a welcome relief. To make the best of the energy, stay flexible, open, and curious on that day–a positive approach can affect the outcome of the situation, so ball’s in your court, Aries. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th (also your fire sister, so careful on this day!). It’s a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex (never pass up an opp to werk that creativity, Aries).  Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep that Ram temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You’re the most fiery of the fire signs, so whatever you gotta do to sidestep the drama–hide out at a day spa, binge on Arrested Development, hit that dispensary–get on it, babe.

What’s up, Taurus?! You start July out with the Sun in Cancer transiting your house of friends and aspirations. YAY! To make the most of the combo, be a joiner. Clubs, craft nights, happy hours–anything that involves circles of friends or organizations. Cancer’s nurturing, mothering influence over this house may well land you with mentors or genuinely generous peeps who are willing to get in your corner and help make your dreams come true (holla). On the 4th, we get some v weird vibes when Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, causing upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere, bb. You don’t have a direct (or even indirect) involvement in this aspect (fist pump), but given the level of weirdness and the fact that it’s a holiday, you should still be on alert. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you, just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on that day, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, which can be dope but can also suck a fatty. Dope because it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; fatty-sucking because it can cause embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). Again, you’re not at the center of this potential meltdown, but the feels are in the air, so you’d do well to keep shit mellow. On the 9th, a full moon in Capricorn lands in your house of pleasure, fun, and creativity. This combo is dichotomous af. Capricorn is a sort of stern, restrained sign, while the 5th house is all things silly and unrestrained. To harness these contrasting forces, do what I used to do for all my elementary school birthday parties–create a strict schedule of fun and stick to it. Be like: 12pm-2pm: Paint toes while watching Girls on sister’s HBO Go account. 2pm-3pm: Eat ice cream first, then pizza (etc.; you get the idea). If you combine Cap’s love of structure with the 5th house’s love of play, you’ll make some magic happen on this day. In the boo department, Venus in Gemini is transiting your house of secrets and the subconscious most of the month. This could mean that a secret admirer surfaces, that you’re feeding a secret crush (in which case, allow us to help you catch that cutie’s eye), or that there’s some gossip going around about your love life (chatty Gemini, who’ll be influencing this placement, is not above talking shit). Alternatively, this placement could be about romantic needs or feelings that are working their way out of your subconscious. Any time this house is involved, it’s really important to meditate and/or pay attention to your dreams–two of your subconscious’ favorite methods of communication. For you gals who’re already spoken for, also watch out for gossip, secrets revealed about your partner, and/or intuitive messages that come through about your relationship. Speaking of Venus, the planet of love will be giving us some rocky waters on the 17th with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re not a direct player in this blowout (YAS), but the funkiness will cast a wide net (boo). To combat those Eeyore vibes, surround yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones (they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla). The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You’re not one to pop off on someone, but you’re not one to back down either (they don’t call you the bull for nothing). On this day, do yourself a favor and just say “NO” to confrontations of any kind. That strong personality looks a lot better in a bubbly bathtub alongside a glass of champagne than in the midst of a bunch of b.s. drama.

Hey Gem babes! You’re cruising through a v intense house this month, one that oversees secrets and the subconscious. It’s an awesome time to go inward, as they say: lots of meditation, sitting in nature, decoding dreams, hitting up those 1-900 psychics (jk don’t do that–but legit psychics are totes a go). This energy will support you in connecting with your intuition, so help it out by doing the footwork. Alternatively, this house could bring up slanderous ass gossip and secrets–hell no, rude, lame. But then again, if any of that b.s. should go down, it’s an opportunity to show the Universe that you’re above the nonsense. Take the high road, let the haters hate, and punch pillows should the need arise. In other news, the 4th is bringing some v weird vibes. Mercury in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries that day, which can cause upsets, surprises, and shocking news. It’s an aspect that lends itself to getting pissed and pissing off other people (not saying that copious amounts of alcohol at the BBQ/pool party would be a contributing factor to said pissiness, but like, monitor that shit, k?). This planetary showdown also makes keeping plans really hard, so do your best to stay spontaneous on the 4th–you can see those fireworks from pretty much anywhere. You don’t have a direct (or even indirect) involvement in this aspect (fist pump), but given the level of weirdness and the fact that it’s a holiday, you should still be on alert. On the 5th, it’s like the Cosmos have make up sex with you, just to turn around and sit you down for “the talk” again. Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces on that day, elevating your creative talents, sense of community, and love for your fellow human. It’s all things intimate connection and kumbaya, and then–all in the same day–the stars take a funky detour into aspect #2: Sun in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, which can be dope but can also suck a fatty. Dope because it brings confidence, exuberant energy, and optimism; fatty-sucking because it can cause embarrassment, loss, and overkill–and the two are totes related because unchecked confidence can easily lead to biffing it. You’re not a direct player in this one either, but because you share Libra’s air element, you may feel the effects a bit more. To make sure you don’t ef this day up, get your moderation on: exnay on the hair of the dog becoming a rerun of last night’s turn up, exnay on saying “yes” to projects you can’t handle rn, and exnay on any kind of risky behavior literally at all (I mean this!). On the 9th, a full moon in Capricorn will keep your nose placed firmly to the grindstone as it lights up your house of work. Cap is the stern disciplinarian, and this house often means late nights at the office, working through lunch, and… getting a head cold due to lack of sleep and high stress (it’s no mistake that the house of work is also the house of health). You’ll be working like whoa, Gem, but it’s not an excuse to abandon your immune system. Pop that Vitamin C, make sure you get a full eight hours every night, and if you feel stress tears coming on, get to a stall and let ’em flow–holding it in will stress your body out more. In love land, Venus is lighting up Gemini all. month. long. YAS GIRL. It’s a powerful time for you to put yourself out there in the romance department, doing what you Gem’s do best: talkin’ people up. Play to your charming air element strengths by going out, meeting new peeps, and initiating conversations with all the cuties you can. If you’re already attached, make the most of these vibes by hitting the town with bae. Get social, get fun, get sexy: that’s basically the magical formula this month. There is one day to be careful of in the love department: On the 17th, Venus in Gemini–that’s you–will be giving us some rocky waters with a square to Neptune in Pisces. It’s just a dark cloud that brings self-doubt, delusional thinking, doormat behaviors, and overall disappointment in the love department. WOOF. You’re all up in this one, Gem, so combat the Eeyore vibes by surrounding yourself in self-love enhancing rose quartz and/or carnelian stones; they’re great for confidence and grounding… plus they’re a sexy red color, so ya know–holla. To make up for the funk, the Cosmos are sending a SUPER nice aspect on the 18th: Venus in Gem (YAS) trine Jupiter in Libra. It’s a day of major love feels–romantic, platonic, familial–good feels across the board. It’s also a great day for mending difficult or stressed relationships, so keep that in mind if you’ve been meaning to pass an olive branch. The month rounds out with a v dynamic placement: Mars in Leo conjunct Sun in Leo on the 26th. This is a cosmic combo that can legit be dangerous; violence, arguments, and people just being arrogant dicks are all on the menu. On the other hand, it’s a killer placement for creativity and sex. And creative sex. Expressing yourself and taking a stand are also favored with this placement. To make the most of this aspect, keep your temper in check–stay away from people who get you riled up, and take a measured approach to any challenge that comes your way. Invest all your energy in whatever art projects you’re working on, and/or if there are any boo thangs in your world, get your sexy time on. You Gems are big talkers, and that mouth can sometimes get you in trouble. I know it’s not your favorite, but givin’ the world the silent treatment just for this one day may be exactly the way to go, sister.
