Week of July 26
Love's Week in Preview: The mood is not very mellow this weekend as it’s a time for shaking things up rather than settling them down. Sudden changes can rock relationships with restlessness but also open new opportunities for connecting. However, consequences come quickly so it’s best not to go too far outside the limits of common sense as the price of careless behavior may be higher than anticipated.
You could be in for a wild ride this weekend with the Moon in your impulsive sign and your passionate ruling planet Mars careening from an opposition with experimental Uranus to a conjunction with restrictive Saturn. If you go too far too fast, you’re bound to hit a wall. Some self-restraint may lessen the excitement but can also lighten the potential disappointment.
The Aries Moon is in your secretive 12th House this weekend, which could make it harder to get your fair share of attention. But perhaps you can spend some quality time with a calm person in a quiet, out of the way place. The ease of not having to put on a show or do anything extravagant to make a simple heart connection should bring the satisfaction you seek.
Complications are likely to arise when you’re part of a group this weekend. Sure, there’s plenty of excitement available when you’re hanging out with your friends. But romantic feelings that arrive like a bolt of lightning can pass as quickly as a summer storm. Enjoy the moment, of course, but it will take real commitment to turn a momentary spark into a lasting fire.
The choice this weekend is clearly between safety and stimulation. You can stay with familiar places and faces to maintain a reasonable level of comfort. But if you stray into new territory, the thrills of different people and experiences can leave you feeling lost and confused. Have fun but protect yourself with enough common sense to avoid trouble.
The impulsive Aries Moon in your 9th House of Faraway Places this weekend showers you with sparks of excitement when you get out of town or connect with a person from a different culture. Stretching your social boundaries is a great way to meet someone new now or simply to add more spice to a partnership that you may be taking for granted.
The unpredictable behavior of other people can lead you in some strange directions this weekend. The Moon is in explosive Aries and your 8th House of Intimacy, which can start a firestorm of passion that tempts you to break some rules. Taking chances can be fun as long as you’ve calculated the cost and are willing to pay the price.
This could be an intense weekend with the irrepressible Aries Moon firing through your 7th House of Partnerships. An exciting person can surprise you and change some of your ideas about relationships. Enjoy the discoveries that you’re making right now without trying to figure out where they are leading you. Live in the moment and the future will take care of itself.
Assertive Mars, the traditional ruling planet of your sign and a key to your strong personality, is fired up this weekend. Its opposition to unconventional Uranus springs surprises on Friday and provokes risky behavior. Think twice, though, before making a romantic leap because Mars runs into responsible Saturn, which is bound to impose some necessary limits.
The Moon in your 5th House of Romance sets you up for a sizzling weekend. The sky is the limit when it comes to what you’ll do to have fun on Friday. In fact, you might even break a personal record for wild behavior. Coming on strong with an innovative approach to love is likely to get you more than your fair share of attention. Finding a creative way to express yourself is the key to your success.
You may have to face some challenges this weekend as circumstances can suddenly shift and knock you off your schedule. Friday is especially chaotic, which is great for making an unexpected connection with someone who is not your usual type. Flexibility is a must if you want to keep your cool and enjoy the surprises instead of fighting the tides of change.
It’s a good thing that you’re an open-minded person because the planets are ready to spring some surprises this weekend. The Moon in spontaneous Aries is in your 3rd House of Communication, which can suddenly connect you with someone new or turn a casual talk into a passionate discussion. Yet if anger arises, it’s better to cool down than to push your point.
The high levels of intensity that the planets are bringing this weekend can unsettle your usually gentle spirit. Passionate Mars quickly shifts from a recklessness that spurs shocking behavior to a reserve that can pour cold water on romance. It’s hard to know exactly where you stand, but it can be an enjoyable time if you’re looking for excitement instead of seeking a commitment.
