Mercury Enters Cancer: Here’s Your Horoscope For the Week of July 12

Weekly Horoscope

Mercury has entered Cancer this week (July 11) which means that you should pay attention to how your emotions play in the way you communicate with others. Mercury is the planet of communication and, with a sign that is very in touch with one’s feelings and intuition, you may either expect to struggle with expressing your sentiments over certain situations or overwhelm others with your outbursts. Try your best to find a middle ground — to speak from your heart but not without analyzing things logically.

Here’s how the energies of this transit will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You may feel like someone else is controlling your decisions in life and there are only two ways this can go: either you bend to the rules or stand up for yourself. Take time to weigh the pros and cons of both choices, ask for help from trusted friends, and make sure that whichever you choose is the best course of action for the situation at hand.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 

Your persistence has led you to make steady progress in your goals and you are well on your way towards achieving your grand vision. Keep manifesting your success and maximizing your skills and talents. Don’t be afraid to reach for the stars; you are definitely capable of doing so!

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Lately, you’ve been feeling compelled to do things not because you want to but because you want to attain someone else’s expectations. Acknowledge this negative behavior and put a stop to it right now! Do things that make you happy and fulfilled, never mind anyone else. Live your life the way you want to.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

There’s a whole new world within your grasp and you are ready to take that huge step towards bigger ambitions! Don’t be scared to move away from familiar ground—that’s the only way you can grow and learn. Be your true, authentic self; the rest will follow.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You may feel like you’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into something without seeing the results, causing you to burn out. Prioritize self-reflection at this moment in order to determine certain habits or behaviors you need to let go of and learn how to be your authentic self.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Remember that material gains aren’t everything; they will only provide you temporary joy. What’s more important is your relationships with people. So do what you can to show your appreciation for them and celebrate all the simple moments surrounded by this unconditional love.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Be careful about making promises you can’t keep. Otherwise, you risk getting into conflict with people who trusted you to follow through. Also, try not to be so weighed down by negativity and just believe in your talents! Take it one step at a time. You’ll get to where you’re meant to be eventually.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Reflect on your personal and work relationships and determine which of them needs reassessment. Certain people may feel threatened by your talents or power (or vice versa), effectively causing tension between you two. Though you cannot change how they feel about you, you can change how you see yourself. Just be you and do what’s best for you.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Something big may have just ended or changed. Not knowing what lies ahead now is terrifying you, but you need to have faith and courage that all this hardship will only lead to good things. After all, the only way to go when you’re down is up.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Mindfulness is the key to success and in making an impact! No matter how chaotic things may be around you, you have to listen to your inner voice, trust your gut, and believe in your power that you are capable of getting through this mess with grace and finesse.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You may feel as though the past is coming back to haunt you, leaving you emotionally stressed and drained. Take some time to recover and heal from this emotional toll so that you can eventually face them with strength and courage. Remember that your past is what made you the person you are today. Learn and grow from your mistakes.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Doing too many things at once may seem like a good idea at first, but it’ll only lead to burnout if you don’t pay attention to your physical, mental, and emotional needs. Keep in mind that it’s impossible to be able to control everything. You just have to ride the waves sometimes. So only focus on what’s worth investing your time and effort on, and let go of the rest.
