Weekly Horoscopes for Queer Women | July 17, 2017
Destiny is something that often feels out of our hands because it really shows itself when what we want clashes with reality. This week, those clashes happen. With Mars and Sun square Uranus, we’re resisting politically, particularly against liberal ideas. We might feel a little stupid or a little childlike but only because we’re coming from a place that matters. And it will be especially hard to keep in mind that who we are and what we’re saying matters.
The Sun enters Leo right before the Moon joins it. Mercury and North Node also conjoin in the Lion. This gives us an opportunity to get to know what makes us genuine. Leo comes after Cancer because it is the child who resists all the structures it has inherited. It refuses to call itself by anything other than its own name. Now that we’ve spent some time learning what makes us entangled in one another, we give ourselves the agency we need to tell a new story.
As the Moon halves and shrinks until the intention setting New Moon, we’re letting go of whatever it was we explored during this year’s Cancer season. The lesson has passed. The only way for it to become whole is for us to exercise the most powerful memory tool there is—that of forgetting.
♈️ Aries ♈️
What do you want? It’s time to have a little fun in life, Aries. When was the last time you fell in love, like really in love? Risk everything for a moment, if only for a day. The best thing about life is that you get to laugh. Forget your responsibilities for a while and live.
♉️ Taurus ♉️
Let something weigh you down. You love to feel grounded and this is the week for it. Spend time with your family or loved ones, whoever makes you feel like you belong somewhere warm and inviting. Invest some time in your home and just chill out.
♊️ Gemini ♊️
Ooh, Gemini – this is a busy time for you. Get ready to have new ideas left and right. Don’t even try to make up your mind this week. You’re not ready to and won’t be ready to for a while. Instead read some fiction and just speculate on all your possibilities. Do some method acting just for kicks.
♋️ Cancer ♋️
Use some of that money you’ve been piling in the bank on yourself this week. If you don’t have any savings, then do the reverse – save something. It’s you who you’re investing in this week, regardless of whether you use money to do so or something else entirely.
♌️ Leo ♌️
Clear away all those things that you thought you forgot but didn’t really and are still muscle memory, somehow, and get ready for a whole new you. Change your look somehow this week. Play with yourself. Fall back in love with the person you see in the mirror everyday.
♍️ Virgo ♍️
Are you way too busy? Because, if you are, you are literally killing your imagination. Being too busy will leave you no time to get bored and day dream and, Virgo, you are if nothing else a creature of the day dream. Clear what needs to be cleared out so you have some time to do absolutely everyday.
♎️ Libra ♎️
What is your purpose in this world? Forget what you’re trying to do with your time for a second and think about what you’re trying to do with your life. Do away with your career for a second and think about your life work. What circle of inspiration do you reside inside of?
♏️ Scorpio ♏️
Reality check! You’ve had a month to get lost in abstract ideas. Now it’s time for a reality check. Put your ideology away and interface with some real people. It’s time to see if your ideas really work now that you’ve got to perform them in real and daily life.
♐️ Sagittarius ♐️
Be free, Sagittarius. That’s all the world is asking of you to do. All this time, you’ve had to think about how you’re entangled with the people in your life. The point of that is really to build up your motivation to fly away far and never come back. Figure out how to liberate yourself.
♑️ Capricorn ♑️
Meld together with the world. This week, consider your social values. How do other people hold you accountable and how do you hold other people accountable? How can you experience love in intimacy? In what ways can you make sure your relationships bring more power to all who are involved?
♒️ Aquarius ♒️
Forget about yourself and hang out with people. You’re constantly meeting people this week and might get a little self conscious about the way you are. Don’t sweat it. The way you are is the way you are. Just be genuine and have a lot of love available. You’ll get back what you give.
♓️ Pisces ♓️
With humans already starting to go extinct, the point of life is now imagination. Make fantasy as much a part of your daily life as you possibly can. This means embracing daily boredom because too much escapism kills your ability to think of new possibilities. Cancel Netflix and space out instead.
