The hangover from last weekend’s full moon combined with the final days of Jupiter in Pisces (until 28 July GMT and AEST) feel a bit like watching the season finale of your favourite show. It’s bittersweet knowing you’ll have to wait months before its return (Jupiter moves back into Pisces 29 Dec GMT and AEST). Don’t fight the feelings, if the tears come, let them flow.
As the week progresses, so too does some extra clarity, determination and resolve (as Jupiter moves back into Aquarius 28 July GMT and AEST). Communication is set to get a whole lot more direct too, once Mercury moves into Leo (28 July GMT and AEST), and productivity levels kick up a gear (or five) when Mars moves into Virgo (29 July GMT; 30 July AEST).

ARIES AND ARIES RISING
Feeling emo may not be your stock in trade but if you only do one thing this week, make space to get sentimental. A little bit of alone time before Thursday – journaling, maybe even a cry – will do wonders for processing the past few months. Trust your mojo will be back on deck firing from all cylinders by the end of the week.
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
It’s easy to get fixated on the roadblocks right now, but this week try to take stock of all the little wins you’ve had over the past few months. If you’re struggling to remember, look at your camera roll. Fun nights out, new friends or promising work contacts – taking a minute to reflect on the good will help you get out of your own way.
GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING
Productivity may not be at its finest early in the week, but the skies are providing a great opportunity to reflect on the progress you’ve made professionally since the end of May. Amid the setbacks this year has served up, the workplace wins you’ve made are a sweet reminder there’s light and shadow in every moment.
CANCER AND CANCER RISING
The start of the week is a lush window to work with the sensitive, nourishing vibes on offer. Go to ground. Meditate. Do yoga. Whatever practices help you get out of your head and into your heart. Then brace yourself as the back half of the week pulls focus back on the bigger picture and fires you up to tackle things head on.
LEO AND LEO RISING
Despite the newfound swagger you’ll be feeling since the sun moved into your home sign, the start of the week is a time to chill. Make the most of it and seize your last chance to surrender to some downtime before things fire up from Thursday onwards and remain that way for the new few weeks.
VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING
With all that’s going on right now, you’d be forgiven for putting romance on the backburner. But early this week, you’re getting a cosmic nudge to prioritise love. Make the most of a magic window (Monday – Wednesday GMT and AEST) to get lost in romance. Clear the decks and do something dreamy – with your partner, or for yourself.
LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING
Don’t be perturbed if productivity is a little lack lustre early in the week. From Thursday onwards things should pick up, with a palpable shift in the vibe bringing a clarifying quality. Brace yourself as the urge to go full Marie Kondo on your wardrobe takes hold over the weekend.
SCORPRIO AND SCORPIO RISING
If you’ve got the space to clear your diary, the start of the week looks especially lush for switching off. Creativity and pleasure will be coming in hot, so don’t waste the window – get lost in something that feels good. The end of the week looks less chill, as an ongoing issue involving home and/or work comes back into focus.
SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING
The skies look glorious for some moments of sweetness early in the week. Prepare your favourite meal or turn your bathroom into a day spa – whatever helps you unwind at home. There’ll be plenty of time for hustle later in the week as Mars brings a burst of activity to your work life, so take the opportunity to chill while the goings good.
CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING
There’s a time to hustle, and a time to chill and this week you’ll get the opportunity for both. Switch your phone off, run a bath and take a minute as the last days of Jupiter in Pisces beckon you to get switch off. Things kick up from Thursday when a story around cash re-emerges for further consideration.
AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING
Aquarians haven’t had a lot of respite this year, but the start of the week is an invitation to reflect on the small wins you’ve had – especially around money. From Thursday onwards, the vibe shifts as Jupiter moves back into your home sign reigniting a big life shift from earlier in the year (think: January – May).
PISCES AND PISCES RISING
Clear the decks early in the week and try to put productivity on hold wherever you can. Monday – Wednesday is a time to prioritise self-care, creativity and romance. The mood shifts from Thursday, and no one will feel it quite as much as you. It’s a more serious, pragmatic vibe, so savour those moments of dreaminess earlier in the week while you can.
