Your Weekly Parenting Horoscope For July 3-9
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 3-9.
If part of your life feels totally out of whack, this dynamic, fireworks-filled week is gonna inspire you to get on track. Sunday's full moon joins up with transformative Pluto in hardworking Capricorn, and around that time, you'll decide you've had enough with routines that aren't working for you, whether that's co-sleeping or trying to squeeze in preschool drop-off before that big meeting at work.. You're gonna want to zero in on any area you can simplify in order to reduce your stress level. (Yes, it can be done.)
Meanwhile, Venus (the planet of love) moves into communicative Gemini on Tuesday (which is also the 4th of July!), and Mercury (the planet of communication) will be in romantic Leo as of Wednesday. So expressing what's in your heart — and hearing the same from your bae — should come more easily. Sweet!
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
If you've been feeling unfocused and/or spreading yourself too thin across a variety of projects, you're gonna be fired TF up to streamline your goals around Sunday, when the full moon is in your tenth house of career. You've had enough of feeling pulled in a gazillion directions, and you know you deserve more work-life balance, so you can spend more time with your L.O. or maybe even start working on baby #2. Do what you need to do, mama—no apologies now!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You can look forward to lively, heartfelt conversations with family members, thanks to communicator Mercury hanging in your fourth house of home life for three weeks starting on Wednesday. Your heart and mind are likely to be in sync in a confident way RN, so it's a prime time to bring up that headache-inducing issue you've been putting off (like starting your kid's college fund or getting a regular date night on the calendar).
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your partner or a potential bae is bound to blow up your phone with mushy messages while the planet of love, Venus, is in your sign. This fun turn of events lasts for six weeks starting on Tuesday. You might wanna get more creative with how you share your desires. You know, like taking full advantage of your kid being distracted by naptime and sneaking off to send a few X-rated snaps or sexts.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Forget about fireworks. Some big project you've been working on may also blow up on Tuesday, when communicator Mercury in your sign forms a negative angle to change-maker Uranus. Yeah, this could be a freakin' headache that tears you away from introducing your L.O. to sparklers and BBQ, and it could make you wanna pull your hair out. But take deep breaths, mama. It's likely to just be a blip on your radar in the grand scheme of things. You'll handle it.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
For three weeks starting on Wednesday, a burst of creative, sexy, take-control energy is all yours, kween! That's because communicator Mercury will be in your sign, making you feel even more empowered to express yourself in dynamic ways. So maybe sign up to attend an art class or camp with your L.O., plan a theater date with your bae, or pitch your boss that really big, exciting project. Basically, you're gonna be on fire!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
A serious shift with your partner or someone you've been seeing could come around Sunday, when the full moon is in your fifth house of romance. Maybe you'll find a new way to simplify and sync schedules with your bae, and you'll hit an even better groove while you're co-parenting. But if you've been at each other's throats, you'll be compelled to find a lasting solution. Either way, analyzing how your relationship is working overall will be very much at the front of your mind RN.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
If you thought the season has been ridiculously social so far, just wait 'til Wednesday! After that, communicator Mercury is in your eleventh house of friendships for three weeks, and you may have trouble keeping up with all of the invites. In fact, don't be afraid to say no when you need downtime. Seriously! You're so eager to please, but sometimes it's totally okay to be #sorrynotsorry and RSVP no.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You might enjoy even more quickie bang sessions while your L.O. is glued to Doc McStuffins starting on Tuesday. Thats because romantic Venus will be in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. There's no rush to leap right into whatever it is you wanna try. You'll have six weeks to take advantage of that, so try to get that sitter on the iCal.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
If you've been musing about that grad program, doula training, or even how to help out at your local animal shelter, you're going to want to find out more beginning on Wednesday. You can thank communicator Mercury in your ninth house of higher education for three weeks, motivating you to investigate new ways to grow personally. Sounds potentially daunting, but the more you follow your heart RN, the more sure you'll be of the direction you choose to go in.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Spring cleaning's got nothing on the overhaul you're about to do on any aspect of your life that feels off balance. For about two weeks starting on Sunday, when the full moon is in your sign, cancel on commitments that just aren't serving you anymore (like that side hustle that's sucking your soul, or that class your kid kinda hates). It's OK to be a bit ruthless. You'll breathe a big-ass sigh of relief, and then be even more present for the to-dos you actually want and need to do.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Here's the deal, oh-analytical-one. Starting on Wednesday, you should bust out your spreadsheets and go over that college savings plan or cool new budget with your partner. But only if you're also willing to talk about your feelings. Communicator Mercury will be in your seventh house of partnership, making the next three weeks a prime time to have tough, productive, and emotional conversations with your bae. One of these things is so not your fave, but, hey, it's also kinda integral to a healthy relationship.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
More than anything, you'll want to just enjoy relaxing with family for six weeks, beginning Tuesday. That's because the planet of love, Venus, will be in your fourth house of home life, and baby-wearing on a walk around the block, gardening with your toddler, or sharing dreams with your bae will be particularly fulfilling. So whenever the opp arises to squeeze in one of these sweet moments, just go with it.
