We know there's so much going on in the world, Scorpio. Many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. And though the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology (including horoscopes) may at least provide solace and comfort through times of uncertainty.
However, there's one thing that is certain: Black lives matter. For our Black readers: We see you, and hope that you are able to practice self-care — right now and always. For our non-Black readers seeking to become better allies, we urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to; if you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
Welcome to July, Scorpio. Last month saw the end of Venus retrograde, so your love and sex lives are finally starting to become a little easier to navigate. You've been through a lot the past few months and your relationships have been tried and tested. Due to a pandemic and ongoing protests against racism and police brutality, you've seen your inner circle's true colors. Some people have surprised you in both good and bad ways and now you're left feeling exhausted.
On Sunday, July 5, there is a full moon in bossy Capricorn that's also a lunar eclipse. This will be an emotional weekend and you may be feeling all over the place. Take a social media break if possible and do things that feel comforting and familiar to you. Eclipse energy is erratic and can lead you to make decisions that you regret later. After all, Scorpios can lash out, especially when they are stressed. You have to do what you can to mitigate this tendency.
Communication planet Mercury goes direct on Sunday, July 12, ending its retrograde. Conversations begin to flow better and you will find that you have an easier time understanding others. This is a good time to make sincere apologies for things you regret saying, either in your distant or immediate past. Your positive intentions will be clear and you'll also be able to make better decisions regarding those close to you.
The world has changed drastically. Even if you believe that a better future is possible and feel hopeful, it's still normal to grieve. Everyone has a reason to mourn, whether it's over a job, a family member, or the loss of a routine that felt comforting. Use the new moon in caring Cancer on Monday, July 20, to honor what's lost. Prepare for tears, as you may be flooded with emotion.
Mourning is crucial because it allows us to move on while still honoring the past. Bold Leo season begins on Wednesday, July 22. Leo is ruled by the sun and asks you to reconnect with friends about causes you care about (but do so safely and follow your current local guidelines, of course). Step out into the world and give it all that you've got. Stay safe and see you in August.
