The highlight of this week is the Full Moon in Capricorn that takes place on Sunday, July 9th and lights up Scorpio’s communication and creativity sector. The energy of this Full Moon will be felt all week long, especially July 5 – July 9th. This is a time of major completion in your life, and since this Full Moon is taking place in the grounded Earth Sign of Capricorn, you’re serious business. You know where you’ve been slacking off, and you also know where you’ve been pushing yourself too hard. This Full Moon will help you make necessary adjustments so that you can live your life with greater ease, and less stress. This Full Moon week is all about emotional maturity, and focusing on what’s most important, rather than letting yourself get sidetracked by distractions. If you really put in consistent effort this week, and you avoid cutting corners, you will feel very proud of yourself by Sunday’s Full Moon.
Not everything about this week has to be super intense though, and that’s due to Venus, the Planet of Relationships, entering the Air Sign of Gemini on Tuesday. Venus in Gemini energy helps you lighten the grip you tend to have on relationships. You seek a lot of freedom, independence, and flexibility in your love and social life right now. You’re also catching the travel bug, so it’s a great time to plan a trip for this month or the upcoming months. If you can travel near or far this week, even better. Venus in Gemini energy is all about becoming aware of how free you truly are once you decide to free yourself of your own mental chains. Ironically, your mind may be full of even more thoughts than usual this week, so it won’t necessarily be easy to turn them off. But make an effort to just let your thoughts pass by without feeling the need to dissect everything and find a deeper meaning within it. This is especially true concerning the way others act around you. Approach life with the awareness that everyone’s creating their own dream world, so there’s no point in trying to control another’s reality. Focus on your own.
Midweek, the Planet of Communication, Mercury, leaves the shy and sensitive Water Sign of Cancer and enters the bold, entrepreneurial, fearless sign of Leo. Whether you think you’re ready or not, it’s time for you to put your money where your mouth is. You’ll be attracting a lot of attention during the second half of the week, even if you’ve been working behind-the-scenes. Don’t be surprised if you’re offered a chance to speak publicly, publish a piece of writing, or perform a work of art. Leo energy is all about self-expression, and with Mercury in this sign for most of the month, you’ll be working on increasing your self-confidence and sharing your talents more abundantly with the world. This is not the time to hide out, even though the energy of Cancer Season will definitely cause you to go back and forth between introversion and extraversion. But as much as you can, start to put yourself out there more. Stop worrying about how you’ll be perceived and just commit to the rawness of your incredible personality and infinite gifts, Scorpio.
Romantically, your sex drive is going to be quite high as the week begins, and some people won’t be able to take their hands or eyes off of you, due to the Moon being in your sign as the week starts off. Then it enters Sagittarius mid-week, and then Capricorn for the weekend. When you combine that with Venus’ recent entrance in Gemini, you may find it hard to stay put when it comes to your love life. You want to experience it all at once! One day you may be plotting major power couple moves, another day you may be in the mood to just be by yourself and put a pause on companionship. The energy of Venus in Gemini makes it essential for you to give yourself lots of breathing room in both love and friendship. Venus in Gemini’s energy will help you learn to be more carefree in your relationships, and this will help you laugh at situations that would have previously driven you crazy. This energy may make your love life feel a bit inconsistent or unstable, but it’s really just teaching you to let go of the reins and trust that the Universe is teaching you what you need to know in order to evolve into the best possible lover. So say yes to adventure, say yes to new encounters, say yes to dates you haven’t been on before, or topics you haven’t brought up before. This week is all about letting yourself be pleasantly surprised by life’s unexpected and constantly changing nature.
