It's true: Your zodiac sign can offer insight into plenty of random moments in your everyday life, from how you can best tackle your toddler's worst tantrums to identifying your career goals. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how you can make what's going on up in the sky work for you and score even more bliss and balance in your day-to-day. Here's your weekly horoscope for July 24-30.
On Monday, creative pursuits will get a serious energy boost from the planet of love and beauty Venus in Gemini opposing taskmaster Saturn in Sagittarius. But the aspect could also seriously impact your relationships, maybe even by putting a monstrous deadline before you can have downtime with your L.O. and bae.
On Tuesday, the planet of communication, Mercury, moves into Virgo, which will give you an advantage in any situation where you have to zero in on minutiae (like learning all there is to know about teething or planning a friend's baby shower). Then, on Wednesday, the confident sun and go-getter Mars sync up in exactly the same spot in the sky in Leo, making it the perfect day to act on your strongest desires. (Yes, you should definitely jump your partner in the kitchen once the kids are in bed—or go on that Bumble date!)
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
If you've been fantasizing about a spontaneous date night (or, OK, quickie bang sesh), you might get your wish on Wednesday when the sun and Mars join up in your fifth house of romance. The stars are aligned for you to find stealthy solutions (like convincing your sis to babysit at the last minute) to make your desires a reality. Yes, mama!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You could suddenly come up with a pretty brilliant solution to an ongoing headache with your L.O. (like potty training or encouraging them to sleep in their big kid bed) on Monday. That's because Mercury in your fourth house of home life is forming a positive angle to game-changing Uranus, and you'll be extra compelled to think in an innovative way. Even something really wacky could end up going gangbusters. You've got this!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You could be aggravated AF when a big work project blows up your plans with your S.O. on Monday, when Venus in your sign opposes hard-working Saturn in your seventh house of partnership. This on top of everything else—dealing with child care and, oh yeah, Mondays in general—will make you feel like pulling your hair out. Take deep breaths. You'll likely be pinpointing a totally doable back-up plan in a matter of moments.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Whether you've been stressed about figuring out all the back-to-school details for your L.O. or asking your OB all those important pre-birth Qs, finding the answers is about to get much easier. The planet of research and info-gathering, Mercury, is in your third house of communication from Tuesday until August 12, helping you to be even more resourceful and nail down the answers you need.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
If you've been wanting to go for that raise at work or come up with a TTC plan for baby #2, you'll want to get the ball rolling on Wednesday. That's when the confident sun and go-getter Mars pair up in your sign, and your passion, drive, and ability to go after your dreams are gonna be on frickin' fire. Own it! You'll be so glad you took action ASAP.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
From Tuesday 'til August 12, there'll be no better time to speak up about your needs with your partner, your kid, your BFF, etc. That's because communicator Mercury will be in your sign, helping you be even more adept at putting what's in your heart into words. You just kinda have to trust that you're not crazy, and advocate for yourself for a change, mama. You deserve so much! Go after it!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Consider spending time with close friends or colleagues on Wednesday. The confident sun and go-getter Mars pair up in your eleventh house of networking that day, and you'll be feeling like even more of a social butterfly than usual. So even a quickie outing to the park—or hell, Target!—can help you shake any sense of cabin fever right about now.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
On Monday, because communciator Mercury is forming a positive angle to game-changer Uranus in your sixth house of daily routine, you could have an exciting epiphany about what you can do to get more work-life balance—and you'll want to act on it pretty much immediately by talking to your boss or partner. You'll be so fired up, because it feels like this solution has so much freakin' potential. Seriously—if it feels right, go all in, mama.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
All you might want to do is spend time close to home on Monday, snuggling with your L.O. and/or with your partner. But when artistic Venus opposes taskmaster Saturn in your sign that day, you could be torn between taking downtime and tackling a big, creative project. You're feeling kinda crazily inspired, so it may be wise to get the work in while you can—and prioritize fam time as soon as you wrap up!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You'll want to make a fantasy with your partner (like spending your first night away from the L.O.) oh so real on Wednesday. That's when the confident sun is pairing up with action-oriented Mars in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, giving you a huge push to get your child care plan in place — or even just strategize around nap time — and go after your desires. Hot.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Talking about your deepest emotions isn't exactly your fave thing ever, but you might benefit from doing it while communicator Mercury is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy starting Tuesday and until August 12. Being a bit vulnerable about how stress, breastfeeding, pregnancy, or other factors have been affecting your sex life could really promote better understanding between you and your partner — not to mention potentially set the stage for a sexier time now or in the near future.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
If you've been putting off a big hairy project around the house, like redecorating the nursery or even sitting down and making a budget with your bae, go for it on Monday. Artistic, money-savvy Venus in your fourth house of home life opposes taskmaster Saturn, which means you'll be able to zero in on challenging work that results in a more beautiful, balanced home life. It might sound too good to be true, but seriously, you've got this!
