This week's Peek: July 11-16, 2019

For most of the week the Sun, our will and our consciousness, is sitting in opposition to Saturn, the disciplinarian and stern life-lesson giver. Oppositions suggests the dynamic between the two planets will play out between you and another. The sun has you wanting to spread your wings and discover who you are and what you can do. Saturn clips wings and tells you that you must walk before you fly. Saturn is a buzzkill and slows things down. So this week, we contemplate where we feel stagnation. Venus joins the pity party for the weekend. So, solitude is a factor as well. See what areas of your life are affected by these planets.

Aries: You might actually be feeling sensitive this week, Aries. Memories of the past are resurfacing as a metaphor for what is unresolved. Be easy on yourself this week as you experience waves of vulnerability that are very difficult for Fiery Aries to hold in its body. Unfortunately, you may be feeling crunched for time to dedicate to yourself underneath the pressures of work. Make time. Draw a clear boundary between work life and home life.

Taurus: You are going to love my advice for you this week, Taurus. Stay close to home this week. Your happy place is within the confines of your own neighborhood. We know this isn’t a stretch for you, comfort seeker. Venturing too far from home, you run the risk of running into folks drinking tall, iced glasses of Hater-aid. Travel this week brings debate. Build from your garden, your castle. Bring energy to the cultivation of your plans. Study your action plan for attaining your next goal.

Gemini: This week you are not so much your social self. Allow yourself to pull away from others. You may feel like getting lost in your work. Who are you trying to avoid. If you have business partnerships, there could be a power struggle that erupts between you over some disagreements that you are having regarding funds. Take the time to be extra clear in your business dealings. The Mercury retrograde can wreak havoc when trying to clearly exchange ideas with another.

Cancer: This week, Saturn is working through your relationships. The good news is that one of the blessings of Saturn is longevity. Saturn helps relationships endure and builds an inextricable foundation that will be supportive for years. You may be feeling lonely even if you are in a relationship. Words go unspoken. There is emotional distance felt even though the pets/kids are getting fed and the bills are getting paid. Make an effort to nurture your sweetie even if you don’t really want to. Consider separate va/staycations.

Leo: This week, walk very delicately around the folks at work. Miscommunications are imminent with Mercury moving in reverse this week. And feeling stressed out a work can have you feeling stressed out in the body. Stiff and maybe constipated. Think, hydration. You need to bring the energy of flow into yourself. Allow and try not to fight others or yourself. If you can afford an annual check up or dentist visit, go ahead and make an appointment.

Virgo: Get out of your head, Virgo. You take everything too seriously, especially yourself. Don’t be surprised when you and your sweetie just stop getting along this week. Communications are sticky due to Mercury Retrograde and Saturn isn’t exactly good medicine for romance in general. It doesn’t inspire any girlish giggles. Wait till next week to tell that Tinder date that you’re ready to swap cell phone numbers. It’s not a good week for you to attempt romantic surprises. Keep it simple, which is also hard for Virgos. Think, less is more when it comes to date planning.

Libra You may feel overburdened by family obligations. You enjoy working hard and feel grounded by the sense of security you feel knowing that you have enough to pay the bills. You may even have the beginnings of a nest egg growing. This doesn’t assuage the fear you might experience when contemplating all of the mouths that you have to feed. People are counting on you, yes, but try to give yourself a break. You are doing enough.

Scorpio: Not a super social time for you Scorpio. Take the week to retreat even more than you usually do. This is a great time for study and reflection. There are going to be folks that want you to be out with them. You are excellent company, Scorpio. However, that’s not where the energy of Saturn wants to be. It’s not light-hearted and gregarious. What needs your serious attention? Saturn can help you focus on the important matters at hand.

Sagittarius: This is a great time to tend to your nest egg. Saving for a rainy day is easier this week. Do you have a monthly budget? Saturn can help with these financial chores we all have. Earn, save and consider where to spend. You may feel really protective over your things this week. If you are in any kind of financial collaboration with others, maybe call a meeting and make sure everyone is on the same page.

Capricorn: Try not to judge yourself too harshly, Sea Goat, if you don’t feel like your normal determined self this week. Saturn is putting a damper on your whole face. You are not going to feel like working with folks and that is ok. If you can work from home, do! If you do feel focused, you are not going to want to collaborate. You might be avoiding someone. Are you avoiding someone, Capricorn? Give yourself a timeout. Take a spa, massage or manicure. Pamper your body.

Aquarius: Step away from the microphone, the party, the brunch or any of the places that you like to commune with your people. This is a week where you get serious about the ways in which you engage your inner life. You may experience a bit of the existential angst vibe. Shit is deep. Who are you and whom are you here to serve? What are you even doing with yourself, Aquarius. It’s time to take yourself seriously. You’ve come here to do some special shit. Get to it.

Pisces: Your friends kinda suck this week. Sometimes friendships just end. Take time to be grateful and express how important your close friendships are. There are people around your ready to provide mindless distraction. These acquaintances do you no good. You are probably drawn to more important things such as checking out some local political groups. Educate yourself as to what is important to the people. Get engaged civically.
