Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 22

Monday is a cosmically busy day as Venus slips into choosey Virgo, the Sun moves into proud Leo and the inventive Aquarius Full Moon casts our feelings in a different light. Romantic desires can be fulfilled when we’re willing to work for love this week. The magical Pisces Moon inspires relationship dreams on Wednesday that are likely to linger with us throughout the weekend. But several tough planetary aspects require us to gain more clarity and complete unfinished business from the past before we’re able to fully enjoy the tender moments that will stir our hearts.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You never know who you might meet when Monday’s Aquarius Full Moon lights up your 11th House of Groups, encouraging you to spend quality time with friends and colleagues. Expect a lively weekend that runs through the full spectrum of emotions and experiences. The Moon blasts into your ardent sign on Friday, drawing the spotlight in your direction and bringing your feelings to the surface. But if you’re too generous or idealistic on Friday, you may have to backtrack and clean up relationship messes on Saturday when an intense opposition of Mars and Pluto triggers both passion and conflict. Love takes work if you want to make it last.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Venus drops in to visit your 5th House of Romance on Monday for a three-week stay, and your heart might be so open that you feel like you can find love around every corner. This positive attitude adds joy to your current relationship or makes it very easy to meet someone new. However, the tone shifts this weekend if you feel under-appreciated for any reason. Standing up for yourself is usually a good idea, but it needs to be done privately to enable an honest exchange without embarrassing anyone. Discretion cultivates trust.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Keeping communication channels open is key to happier relationships now that the radiant Sun has taken up residence in your 3rd House of Information for the next month. Friends can help you fan the flames of romance this weekend with the hot Aries Moon sizzling in your 11th House of Groups. Avoid making a careless comment that may be received poorly on Saturday night. There’s a bit of edginess in the air that can trigger an argument without any notice. A single impulsive remark could open up a well of unresolved emotions, even though the initial issue might be trivial. Sensitivity and self-restraint are recommended unless you’re looking for a fight.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

The unconventional Aquarius Full Moon shines in your 8th House of Intimacy on Monday, giving you an unexpected chance to share your feelings with someone you love. The enterprising Aries Moon occupies your 10th House of Responsibility this weekend, which can put you in a valuable position of authority. But if you try to play mother hen by protecting everyone else, you could wind up in the middle of conflicts that really don’t have much to do with you. Losing time and enthusiasm entangled in minor disputes is not a great idea. Avoid talking about other people’s dramas, so you can attend to your own relationship concerns. Leading by example is your smartest strategy.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The proud Sun saunters into your 1st House of Self on Monday, attracting plenty of attention your way over the next month. However, the week begins with the Aquarius Full Moon shining in your 7th House of Relationships, temporarily shifting your focus onto those you love. While your mind is wrapped up in aiming toward the future, reality pops up and demands your attention on Saturday night. The Sun, your ruling planet, crashes into a testing square with restrictive Saturn, signaling that you need to get your head out of the clouds and put your feet on the ground. Patience is a must, as is the willingness to honestly face your desires and discuss your fears. This personal disclosure might not sound sexy, but it’s an authentic way to establish trust that enables love to flourish.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Resourceful Venus enters earthy Virgo on Monday, bringing more love and creativity your way over the next three weeks. However, you may be pushed to the limit this weekend with the feisty Aries Moon creating mischief in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. This monthly transit often triggers strong emotional responses, both positive and negative. Yet intensity might rise to uncomfortable levels with pushy Mars’ opposition to provocative Pluto on Saturday night. If conflicts occur, sticking to the subject and keeping feelings in check can produce amazingly effective solutions.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The irreverent Aquarius Full Moon illuminates your 5th House of Fun and Games on Monday, offering you the opportunity to romance the one you love. Relationships are moving fast this weekend with the impatient Aries Moon traveling through your 7th House of Partners. Romantic feelings are easily stirred as you desire to experience a world of imagination and intimacy. Yet a bit of discretion is advised to help you avoid making choices that don’t really fit your needs. Attraction to a powerful person can be extremely exciting but if he or she lacks compassion, the results may be less than ideal. Now that Venus is hiding out in your 12th House of Privacy, you may want to take a break from the crowd and spend time with one special person or on your own.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Romance can be found in your circle of friends or in a group situation now that Venus is visiting your 11th House of Community for a three-week stay. Your emotional temperature rises on Saturday when your two intense rulers, Mars and Pluto, oppose one another. This can increase anger and desire, a complex combination that’s likely to stir up relationship issues. Bogging down in a power struggle or steaming with resentment does not pave the way to romance. But calmly addressing concerns could lead to meaningful changes that can clear a path for a more fulfilling partnership.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The bold Leo Sun shining in your 9th House of Adventure for the next month is bound to leave you itching for adventure. Are you ready for romance and fun this weekend? Well, you should be because they’re ready for you. The Moon fires into risk-taking Aries and your 5th House of Amour on Friday to ramp up your enthusiasm for pleasure and play. Getting attention comes easily, but be careful of what and who you attract. There’s so much fantasy in the air that your intentions may be misinterpreted and your judgment a little shaky. Let loose and have fun, but exercise enough moderation so you don’t have any regrets later on.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Venus moves into your 9th House of Big Ideas on Monday to encourage you to spread your wings and explore new romantic territory over the next three weeks. Reason and relationships may not go together very well this weekend. Sudden shifts of moods and fluctuating circumstances can alter your plans without any warning. Instead of fighting these tides of change, you’ll be happier by letting go now and going with the flow. Enjoy each moment without worrying about where it’s taking you. Living in the present may not be your usual mode of operation, but staying flexible and exercising your sense of humor are great ways to find pleasure under stormy conditions.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The powerful Aquarius Full Moon starts your week off with a bang. Your desire for freedom and hunger for new and different experiences might rattle a relationship or shake up the status quo. The Moon’s presence in independent Aries and your chatty 3rd House this weekend speeds up your thinking and is likely to reduce your patience. Anyone who attempts to coerce or control you could trigger a very strong reaction, so it’s best to back away from conflict unless you’re ready for a major showdown.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your tender heart is wide open to love this week starting when alluring Venus moves into your 7th House of Others on Monday and the Moon slips into your sweet sign on Wednesday. And your taste for romance can expand enormously when your imaginative planet Neptune opposes amorous Venus on Friday. Knowing who and what you want is great if you’re willing to fight for it. A passive approach is unlikely to work with Saturday’s intense opposition of combative Mars and passionate Pluto. Standing up for your truth while still honoring the feelings of others allows your heart to shine.
