Did you know full moon hangovers are a thing? Yep, if you’re still feeling a little dusty from last week’s very intense full moon in Capricorn, give yourself a free pass to recalibrate this week. As Venus joins the Sun for the last juicy days of Cancer season (until 23 July AEST; 22 July GMT) do what you need to do, to re-establish a sense of security. Plan a romantic night in with your cat, have a Queer Eye marathon, insist on being the little spoon all week, call your mum (or not!) – whatever the thing is that makes you feel like everything will be ok … go do that. Leo season (23 July AEST; 22 July GMT) looks set to be one of the year’s most epic periods, so rest and restore while you can.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

This is a week to live by ‘you do you’. As the moon moves through your home-sign in the first half of the week, catch the cosmic wave and make plans to suit yourself. External factors could be tense – even a little explosive – especially at work. But staying in your own lane and staying focussed on your goals should serve you well.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

The storyline at the centre of last week’s full moon develops this week as the sun casts new light on a power dynamic demanding your attention. While the vibe could feel explosive, your best course of action is to keep your own counsel. You’ll be grateful for the solitude, particularly later in the week when your patience may well and truly wear thin.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Facing some inconvenient truths – especially related to money or debts – will dominate the first half of the week. It’s less about something new coming to light, but rather taking a deep breath and dealing with that thing you’ve been avoiding. There’s no need panic about it, just put one foot in front of the other and be kind, especially to yourself.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

There’s plenty happening to distract you this week, but try to tune out the white noise and focus on things that make you feel restored. An ongoing tension in a close relationship continues to pull focus, but despite the drama, the planets are inviting you to slow down and prioritise self-care. That hair/facialist/massage appointment you’ve been struggling to schedule? Go book it now.

LEO AND LEO RISING

Your home-season kicks off this week (FINALLY!), but before we get there, there’s still a bit of clean-up  to deal with from the full moon. Tune into your body and listen to what it’s asking for. Cravings are clues, but if you’re drawing a blank, meditation or being in water could help you tap into what you really need right now.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

Coming to terms with the truth – no matter how uncomfortable – is a key theme this week. What comes to light won’t be a surprise, but a necessary realisation if you really want to level up. Putting your hand up to ask for help isn’t something you do often, but leaning on friends is essential to navigating this terrain.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

After a hectic full moon, everything is illuminated as the final piece of the puzzle drops in for Libran folks. An ongoing tension with family or your living situation persists. Understanding what you need to let go – or at least accept and move on from – will be key. The sooner you make peace with it, the more peaceful your life will be.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

There’s a lot to be said for keeping a low profile this week as some big Pluto weather stirs the pot. Keep your cards close to your chest (as usual), and enjoy the drama – it should keep things interesting. Choose your words carefully later in the week when your closest allies could seem inexplicably irritable or even a little unpredictable.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Getting real about money issues could take up a lot of headspace in the first half of the week. Figuring it out might feel a little heavy, and escaping into a glass (or three) of rosé will seem like a good idea, but getting this stuff sorted will be worth it. Persist with the discomfort to help you feel more secure long-term, future you will be glad you did.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

Last week’s full moon likely left you with a lot to digest, and this week, being realistic about your options will be front of mind. It may seem like a strain on your closest relationships, but being honest about how you’re really feeling is exactly what’s needed right now. A little bit of vulnerability could go a long way.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

Those crazy dreams you’ve been having continue this week as the cathartic realisations keep on coming. Like breadcrumbs, they’ll offer hints around what you’re meant to be letting go. Don’t overthink them, there’s a simplicity to the messages – your first instinct is likely spot on. Trust your gut.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

This week is not without drama, but that doesn’t mean you need to get involved. Leave the bluster to people around you and coast on through as only a Pisces can. Make an effort to restore your equilibrium in water – ocean swims, floatation tanks, whatever you can manage before the tides turn for Leo season (from 23 July AEST; 22 July GMT).
