Madame Clairevoyant: Horoscopes for the Week of July 6

This week begins with some intense energy from a lunar eclipse in Capricorn very early Sunday morning. This is the last of the summer’s three eclipses — there was a lunar eclipse on June 5, and a solar eclipse on June 21 — and it will bring to a close this season of upheaval and change. This lunar eclipse in Capricorn can reveal surprising, hidden truths about the structures the world is built on; it can illuminate unexpected, previously hidden parts of your emotional life. As events set in motion long ago come to a point of culmination, think about how you’ll move forward now that you know what you know, now that so many secrets have come to light.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

There’s a funny kind of stability available to you when you’re in a state of constant motion. As long as you’re moving, you don’t have to look down; you hardly have to think. This week, though, you might stop moving for a moment and really think about how much danger and chaos and heartache you’ve lived through. In that moment, all the exhaustion or fear you’ve been too busy to feel might finally catch up with you. Just remember that even if you’re tired, you’re still as brave and as capable and as true as you’ve ever been. That much hasn’t changed.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel a stirring of unpredictability in your heart. You might suddenly have an impulse to act in ways that are wild, uncharacteristic, seemingly irresponsible. If you find yourself feeling some guilt over this, remind yourself that wildness isn’t the same thing as untrustworthiness; being unpredictable isn’t the same thing as being irresponsible. It’s valuable to hold onto the ability to surprise other people. It’s valuable to surprise even yourself, sometimes. Give yourself permission to take wild action, and then learn from it. Give yourself permission to do something new, and see where it leads you.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for thinking about what you’ll hold onto, and what you’ll release. It’s a week for deciding what roles you’ll take on, and what roles you’ll let go. You sometimes feel an ongoing responsibility toward everything you’ve ever touched — every friendship you’ve ever started, every mission you’ve ever set out on, every ideological commitment you’ve ever laid claim to. But eventually, over the course of a lifetime full of movement and change, you find that you’ve picked up too much to carry it all anymore. This week, give yourself permission to lay some things down.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for being more conscientious about how you communicate with others. So much of your energy has been going toward mending and nurturing, toward smoothing things over, toward helping the people around you feel confident and cared for and happy. But things can’t always be smooth, they can’t always be simple, and you’ll exhaust yourself if you try to make everything perfectly pleasant all the time. This week, you don’t have to stir up trouble on purpose, but try to let some snags and some discomfort just be.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

This week, it might be exhilarating — or it might be frightening — to watch the people around you called to make amends, to account for the social debts they’ve left unpaid. It might seem like this is something that only happens to public figures, only to the very powerful. But really, this is a time of rare and valuable opportunity for you, too. If you reset the balance in your own life, if you make right the things that have been wrong too long, it won’t make you weaker, but stronger and braver and newly free.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to reconsider what “work” should look like for you, and what role it should play in your life, and what future it’s leading you toward. It’s a week to think clearly about why you’re working so hard, and what you’re doing it all for. Sometimes, quitting is as valuable as continuing. Sometimes, sitting down, stepping aside, or retreating can be as valuable as pushing forward. There are so many different ways to be useful, to be needed, to make the most of your precious time on earth, and they don’t all look like forward motion.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to let yourself see clearly. It’s a week to let yourself acknowledge that there are people, even people you deeply love, whose goals don’t align with yours, whose desires look altogether different. This week, you’ll find yourself tangled in endless frustration if you keep acting as though everyone is on the same page as you, as though everyone is seeking the same thing. People are different from each other, different from you, and it’s not harsh or cruel to acknowledge this difference — in fact, acknowledging it is the best way to keep loving across it.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, fearlessness can be a dangerous thing. It can mean that you’re reckless, that you’re not accurately gauging the dangers around you. But this week, if you try, you might access a different kind of fearlessness. Here, you’re aware of the threats around you, but equally aware that there’s nothing to do but keep moving through them anyway. Here, you’re aware of the world’s capacity for harm, but you’re also aware that fighting for a better, less harsh world is worth every risk. Let this bright fearlessness move you, and to know that nothing can stop you on your path.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to take some time and think about what you’re really willing to do in the service of justice, of freedom, of the better world you keep seeking. It’s a week to think about what you’re willing to lose, what you’re willing to reject, and what you’re willing, at the end of the day, to destroy. It’s also a week to think about what you’re willing to accept — what kind of fairness, what kind of beauty, what kind of unimaginable joy. You have to believe — really believe — that not just other people, but also you, deserve all this sweetness.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

It’s so important this week that you give yourself permission to be a little sloppy, a little strange, a little unsure. And if you’ve been carrying shame about your secret messiness and uncertainty, it’s so important this week that you try to forgive yourself for it. After all, there’s no established path to the place you’re dreaming of — nobody knows the way there; nobody knows the secret code that will unlock the door. There will be some wrong turns, some mistakes, and this isn’t a terrible thing. There’s no avoiding it — uncertainty is the only way to get there.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for striving to see your place in the world accurately, to understand how you measure up to the people who are moving through it alongside you. It’s a feeling that you might mistake, at first, as a competitive drive, a need to prove yourself better, smarter, more deserving than other people. But if you can move through those feelings, you’ll find that it isn’t really about deservingness — it’s about understanding how you fit into this world, and how to live well and avoid causing harm, and how you can best use the powers you’ve been given.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to look at how you’re distributing your energy, as well as the things you prioritize through your actions. It’s possible that you’ll find your heart and your actions in alignment — but it’s also possible that you’ll feel a disconnect, a piece that doesn’t fit; after all, the world is set up right now so that it’s difficult, almost impossible, to live in full alignment with our values. If you do feel a disconnect, you don’t have to feel any shame — just think about how you can right things, how you can bring your life closer and closer in line with your wild and honest heart.
