If you’re already feeling argumentative, the planets might have something to do with it. After all, your horoscope for the week of July 18 to July 24 says you might be navigating some challenging terrain! Fortunately, you’re not alone, because everyone’s feeling testy together.
On the plus side, some big-time exciting Leo energy is bringing pleasure to your life this week! But first, you have to get past the relatively nasty opposition between Mercury—the planet of communication—in sensitive Cancer and revenge-minded Pluto in earthy Capricorn, which will take place on Monday. With personal betrayals resulting in hurt feelings and power plays throwing you off your professional game, the emotional struggle of this cosmic resistance is very real. However, it will also lead to some game-changing revelations, so don’t be shy—own your power!
However, quick-moving Mercury will have already left emotional Cancer for friendly, outgoing Leo by Tuesday. This will be a welcome shift, as it will bring some humor to the situation, as well as give you the courage to actually say what you mean and mean what you say. Telling a joke on a date or before a meeting can really help break the ice now! Even if it flops, your amazing charm will have everyone laughing with you instead of at you.
By Friday, the confidence-building sun also partners with the playful, spotlight-seeking cat of the zodiac, and nurturing asteroid Ceres joins the Leo party on Saturday. Life can’t possibly be boring with all this fiery energy surrounding you, and if it is, you’re doing something wrong!
Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming week, according to your sun and/or rising sign:
