When you release, you attract what’s meant for you with greater ease. Release the need to control the outcome, even if it seems impossible. Breathe, Scorpio. Understand that you are co-creating your reality, and there’s a flow that helps you do so without stressing about the small stuff. The Moon enters Virgo today, making you hyperaware of what you feel needs to be done. But you need to realize that the only thing human be(ings) need to do is be here on Earth, and spread love. Focus on having a more minimal lifestyle today. Don’t fill your time or schedule with extra stuff you feel you must do. We are one day away from Mercury Retrograde, and this is a powerful time to recondition yourself and look within for guidance. You are all you ever needed. Everything you seek exists within.
We’re two days away from Mercury Retrograde, so it’s a good time to tie up loose ends, finish up projects you’ve procrastinated on, and think of ways to minimize confusion in your professional and personal interactions. There’s no reason to freak out about Mercury Retrograde, however, because it’s an absolutely normal astrological phenomenon that serves to help us revise, reprioritize, release, and reassess. If you take advantage of this retrograde, you’ll end the month of July feeling so much more aligned with your goals and more centered. It’s a time of looking inward and being honest about where you haven’t been fully investing your energy. If you want your garden to grow, you must water and tend to it. This retrograde will allow you to do just that, but you’ll have to be disciplined and persistent in your approach. Do something today that you’ve been meaning to do for a while, and watch how satisfied you’ll feel once it’s complete. Don’t forget to reward yourself for a job well-done. Life’s all about balance, baby.
The Leo Moon activates your profession and reputation sectors, Scorpio. You’ll be thinking of what you’re building and how you can do it purposefully and sustainably. It’s important for you to know how worthy your ideas and visions are. They shouldn’t simply remain notes on your phone or journal. Use this recent New Moon to set intentions on where you’ll be by January 2020, and to take action on those intentions, right now. Literally, what step can you take today so that your future self thanks you? Imagine yourself in January 2020, looking back at this horoscope and smiling with gratitude for having invested in yourself. No matter how small your next step may be or feel, it’s important that you take it. Then take another. And another…
Venus, the Planet of Love and Attraction, shifts out of airy Gemini today and enters Cancer for several weeks. It seems like the Universe is showering us with Cancer energy to teach us how to face our own emotional natures and stop viewing them as something that burdens us. Instead, knowing how we feel and why we’re feeling that way is a liberating way to live. Flip the switch and start viewing your feelings as friends, guiding you to your truth. Venus in Cancer brings out the hopeless romantic in us all, but at first it may take some time for you to accept this, Scorpio. A part of you may be clinging on to old patterns of self-protection, such as keeping a guard up or coming off as cold when in reality you’re craving connection and intimacy. Yesterday’s Solar Eclipse in Cancer shook you out of your comfort zone by inspiring you to love and live differently. This is something that will play out over the course of the remaining six months of the year, and Venus in Cancer serves as training ground when it comes to letting go of old stories and daring to let yourself live out a new one. You will fall more deeply in love with yourself during this transit, and that is the secret to the Universe falling more deeply in love with you.
Today at 3:16pm EST, the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer takes place, activating our adventure, travel and expansion sector. Scorpio, this is your time to realize just how infinite your abilities are. The reason you feel like there is so much you can do, so much to learn, and so much to see, is because that’s very much the case. The world is yours, and it’s up to you to view yourself as someone who belongs to the Universe, and can explore whatever’s calling you at the moment. This eclipse will shake up the way you go after what feels right. It’s strengthening your intuition and encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone. It’s time to leave the nest. Your rebirth is taking place. You are rising from your ashes, transformed, stronger and wiser than ever before. This eclipse will radically alter your life for the better over the course of the next year, and there’s nothing you really have to do but accept the abundance, spread those Phoenix wings, and soar.
Happy July, Scorpio. This is one of the most emotional months of the year, and there’s nothing you can do about it except accept the fact that life gets emotional sometimes. We’re one day away from the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. This is the first Total Solar Eclipse since 2017, so if you feel like you’re on the brink of major change, and you have to prepare to be reborn, then you’re feeling the effects of this eclipse. Don’t fear eclipse season, or the upcoming Mercury Retrograde. Just know that it’s time for you to clear out the old and make way for the new. It’s time for you to release all the expectations you hold for yourself and others, and let the Universe surprise you. Mars, our ruling planet, leaves Cancer and enters Leo today, and this will provide a major boost energetically and professionally. While the remainder of Cancer Season will still have us in our feels, Mars in Leo will help us not be stuck in them. The Universe is reminding us that no matter what happens to us, we are free to decide what route we take. We choose our next action, and that changes the course of our lives. So decide Scorpio: what action will you take next to be your most free and liberated self?
The Sun in Cancer harmoniously aligns with Venus in Gemini today, and this provides a tremendous opportunity for you to open your heart, heal from past wounds, acknowledge your triggers and insecurities, and release them with love. You can end the month of June on a profoundly thrilling note due to this astrological alignment, and it will inspire you to focus on what you’ll continue to manifest in the coming months. Trust yourself, Scorpio. That is the secret to making life-changing, intuitive decisions that are aligned with your “why”. Love yourself, Scorpio. That is the secret to always feeling whole. Be yourself, Scorpio. Live according to your heart’s desires. Listen to your heart’s whispers and increase the volume until the truth that resonates energizes every aspect of your life. You can do anything. Remember that, and thrive.
The Moon shifts into Gemini this afternoon, helping you lighten up significantly after an intense week. Do something today that helps you release any stress, anxieties, frustrations or disappointments you may have held on to. We are 3 days away from the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer, which means we’re currently in the dark of the moon period and it’s a powerful time to work on letting go. Let go of the notion that you have to try harder, that you have to work more, or that you have to evolve at a certain speed. Let go of attachments to ideals or expectations. Let go of burdens weighing you down. You can practice the art of letting go by consciously taking deep breaths and releasing them slowly whenever you feel overwhelmed. That in itself is a healing act. Remember that your feelings are fleeting, so let yourself explore them without attachment, and then you’ll be free to feel something else. Breathe, Scorpio. Breathe.
You’ve made it through a clusterfuck of cosmic madness these past few days, Scorpio. Fortunately, today’s Taurus Moon helps you ground yourself amidst the emotional Cancer energy, and you’ll feel more centered as you focus on finishing the month strong. Mercury Retrograde will begin on July 7th, and we’re already in the pre-shadow period, so we can feel it approaching. This is therefore a perfect time to tie up loose ends, finish different projects you’ve put on the back burner, finalize agreements, and organize upcoming travel plans. Use today’s energy to balance working hard with playing hard. End the work week strong by tackling projects that will propel you forward — get a head start on July’s goals by preparing in advance for the abundance you wish to receive. Once you’ve put in the work, schedule an activity or outing to relax and reward yourself for your efforts. You’ve gone through a lot this month, and you deserve a breather.
Scorpio, Scorpio, Scorpio. Mars being in Cancer has heightened your sensitivity, and sometimes this may make you feel like you’re going crazy, or are deeply misunderstood by those around you. Do not, by any means, try to suppress what you’re feeling, or attempt to make yourself less emotional so that you can downplay what you feel. Your sensitivity is your superpower — always remember that. There will be some who are scared of how intensely you feel, because they have yet to let themselves feel as intensely. It’s not your job to teach them how to do so, or force them to do so. Focus on yourself, acknowledge your complexities, and stop trying to “fix” yourself. You are not broken. You have always been whole. And everything you’re feeling right now is valid. Trust that your emotions are enlightening you and helping you see the light.
Mercury, the Planet of Communication, enters Leo today. This activates your career and reputation sector for several weeks. It’s a powerful time to delve into creative projects and let them be seen. The world loves and needs your magic, Scorpio, so stop hiding it. Mercury in Leo will help you think in a more passionate, bold and confident way. You may have been in your feels with Mercury in Cancer, finding it hard to think practically or logically. Mercury’s shift into Leo will motivate you to take action rather than simply be submerged in emotions. It is still Cancer Season, so you’ll continue to be aware of the deep sensitivity that exists within and around you. But now you’ll have the momentum to use your emotions as a way to propel you in a direction that helps you feel seen, respected and adored. This begins once you truly see, respect, and adore yourself, Scorpio. Continue to be your own lover, and fall deeply in love with yourself and what you’re here to create.
The Moon’s in bold and fiery Aries, inspiring us all to step up and show out. Big boss energy. You were born to let your passions lead the way, and the Aries Moon helps you shine and be seen in an empowering and inspiring way. This is the day to let your most authentic self take the lead and live in a way that feels right. There’s no need to define what “right” is, or even preoccupy yourself with how you’ll get there. Just be here, in this moment, trusting what your body’s telling you. Then use the Sun, Mercury and Mars in Cancer to take intuitive action from there.
