Rockie Weekly Horoscope July 6 through 12


General Forecast

This weekend little green-eyed monsters may come out to play, but for Lions, Centaurs and Rams the sexy Venus-Pluto trine could turn out to be favorable and fun. Mercury finally comes out of retrograde Monday night and resumes its slow slog through watery Cancer. Tuesday night the sun rewards Uranus for its intrinsic kookiness, so if you’re especially inventive that day, that’s why. Save your announcement to the rest of the world for a few days, until we’re out of the balsamic, do-nothing phase of the moon, until the Cancer new moon clocks in on the 14th

Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19

Go on tour. The hottest times could come while you’re out there, far from home, seeking a change of scenery or a different social scene. Trust that affectionate Venus and passionate Pluto hooking up in the two other fire signs will direct some of the heat they’re generating to eager Aries natives. Meanwhile, since the Cancer sun is nudging a domestic matter closer to resolution, you won’t have to hang around to see it through. Besides, your participation will probably boil down to throwing some money at the problem.

Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20

It can’t be emphasized enough. Having courageous Mars in your sign, if only until early August, can provide all the nerve you need to take the next step, to break through real, imaginary or self-imposed barriers. Shortly after Mercury turns direct on the 9th is a good time to reconsider the financial ramifications of the situation and budget accordingly. Just be sure that what you’re trying to achieve is rooted in the sort of reality, not a romantic or ideal-driven pipe dream, a flower-sniffing Bull is comfortable living in.

Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20

Mercury’s change of direction can provide a fresh perspective on a crucial matter you’ve been mulling over while your ruling planet was retrograde the past three weeks. But until the 24th, when the Messenger clears the shadow it’s been under and you receive new information from a fresh face, don’t count on taking a giant step forward. However, as the Cancer new moon cycle begins in your house of assets and acquisition, take a moment to envision what you’ll do when you do get permission (from the powers that be) to take that step.

Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22

One of the joys (and advantages) of being a Moon Child is that every new moon gives you, more than the rest of us an opportunity to drop what isn’t working and start anew. So if the wish you made at your birthday dinner hasn’t materialized, try again during the Cancer new moon. And at every other new moon until you get what you want. Changing your mind a lot? While Mercury is in your sign (until August 4) you’re being urged to become familiar with the broad boulevards and dark alleys the little guy is leading you down.

Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22

Summertime and the living is easy for Leos who don’t have to juggle more than one group of friends at a time. For the rest, the next few weeks could turn into three-ring circus complete with the unexpected arrival of a carload of clowns. If you’re currently planning a birthday celebration, you’ll need more than excellent managerial skills; unpredictable Uranus, by concentrating his attentions on your sun ruler, can suddenly change whatever you have in mind. Let’s hope it also inspires a novel use of your creative powers.

Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22

Sulking because your Mercury ruler hasn’t taken you anyplace exciting, let alone trouble-free lately? Well, slow and same-old is what you usually get when Mercury is retrograde. However, not only will the Messenger finally face forward this week, but vivacious Venus is in the process of dropping the glitter she wears during her trip through Leo for the tasteful wardrobe preferred by Virgo. The goddess begins her on-again, off-again visit to your sign on the 14th. People get ready; the brain is percolating, the stylist is waiting.

Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22

“Just when you think you’re out of it, they pull you back in.: Sound familiar? That’s the feeling you’re liable to get as your Venus ruler prepares to exchange the attention-grabbing behavior of Leo for the demure demeanor of Virgo. However, just a few short weeks into the Virgo transit, Venus turns retrograde and spends August and September revisiting old ground. That’s why what you’ve been doing and whom you’ve been doing it with over the past few weeks are important. Chances are you’ll be doing more of it.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

Sensitive water signs are still getting the best deal, experiencing the easiest transition, sharing the most heartwarming moment. If these benefits will last past the sun’s departure from Cancer depends a lot on your Mars co-ruler. While the Warrior God marches through your Taurus house of significant others, it motivates people you consider your allies as well as the antagonists. Since someone will probably stir up a shit storm during this bi-annual transit, think back. From August 2005 to February 2006, what were you up to?

Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

Since a wise Centaur would never sign a binding piece of paper while Mercury is retrograde, as soon as the Messenger faces forward again, you may ask, “Is it safe?” It’ll be safer to wait until the 14th, when the new moon in your Cancer house of agreements, investments and other people’s money initiates a new lunar cycle. This is also the time that amenable Venus enters your Virgo career zone and begins to offer the kind of opportunities you won’t find too hard to take. What you can’t do, however, is ignore her offerings.

Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20

A new chapter in one of your close relationships begins with the Cancer new moon in your marriage house. Wait to see what a significant (for now) other comes up with before you jump to any sort of conclusion. It’s going to be a long, hot summer, with more rethinking beyond what comes out of the latest Mercury retrograde. The Messenger will continue wending its way through Cancer, scheduling meetings with lawyers and agents, future business partners and ex-spouses for the rest of July. Which is when Venus’ six-week retrograde trip begins.

Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18

Don’t assume that because romantic Venus is leaving your Leo house of partners on the 14th that you’re going to lose that loving feeling. Uh, uh. Venus makes a comeback in August and September thereby extending the issue being discussed now between you and your partner almost until the day the next Mercury retrograde begins. Meanwhile, be prepared to deal with a not-so-negligible amount of turmoil created by Mars’ visit to the house where you, or your parents, live. Because muscular Mars is in Taurus, I would guess garden work or construction.

Pisces: Feb. 19 – Mar. 19

Once again, Fish may luck out because the Cancer new moon takes place in your house of romance, recreation and risk. Since Cancer, another witchy water sign, is ruled by the moon, your chance of succeeding with a brand-new venture during this lunation is greater than the others. Well, maybe not the Pisces new moon. Just remember to trust your creative impulse and gut reaction. The information you might need to succeed should come after Mercury has resumed its forward march through the Crab’s corner of the zodiac.
