Horoscopes for July 16th – 20th, 2012

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

A planet in retrograde motion (Rx) gives the illusion of moving backwards around the Sun. When this happens, we experience a lot of frustrations and delays, as we’re all asked to go over certain situations for review. We’ve just begun a new retrograde cycle that started on Friday, July 13th, courtesy of the planet Mercury. This transit will last all the way through August 8th, while Mercury moves through the sign of Leo. In Astrology, the planet Mercury governs communication, transportation, technology and dialogue. Thus, as this planet backtracks, all of these things will go haywire resulting in a few do-overs. As the fastest moving planet around the Sun, Mercury usually turns retrograde at least three times a year. You should keep a retrograde calendar handy so that you will always be prepared. In the meantime, check your horoscopes below to find out where you can expect to experience a few setbacks. Keep in mind that the purpose of an Rx cycle is to help you catch things that otherwise might have been missed. Consider this cycle a blessing in disguise, and don’t forget to WooooSaaaah!

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at tracey@randomnessofrudy.com.

Aries: If you’ve been working on a new creative endeavor, or trying to bring back the spark to an existing relationship, be prepared for a couple of snafus and misunderstandings. While Mercury goes retrograde, you may have to go back to the drawing board on a new project or courtship. My advice is to exercise a little patience (which is hard for you hardheaded Rams). After August 8th, smooth sailing returns, along with some major movement forward! For the entire month of July, I will be offering a special Astrology reading that takes an in depth look at your full astrological make up. You are more than just your Sun sign.

Taurus: Your home and family will be influenced by Mercury Rx. You can expect delays with house renovations, or even a family disagreement. If you are relocating, higher movers and watch them carefully! If you’re planning a family vacation, give yourself plenty of time for travel and throw all expectations out the window. Through August 8th, you’re set to experience some blocks and a few frustrations on the domestic front. Forearmed is forewarned! For the entire month of July, I will be offering a special Astrology reading that takes an in depth look at your full astrological make up. You are more than just your Sun sign.

Gemini: This may prove to be a frustrating time Gemini. Mercury is your ruler in Astrology, so when this planet retrogrades, you tend to be more susceptible to the backwards energy. Communications with siblings and neighbors will be affected most, and you will also experience delays with regards to short trips and movement throughout your local community. The influence of Mercury Rx is more annoying than anything. Just brace yourself and try not to get too flustered!

Cancer:  You may feel like people are underestimating you while Mercury is in retrograde, or you may be underestimating yourself, trying to get a healthier grasp on your sense of self worth. The back and forth will prove to be somewhat frustrating, but this will also play out to be a highly beneficial exercise in the end. You need to feel compensated for all that you have to offer. Consider this a review period with regards to how you (and others) value your talent and character. For the entire month of July, I will be offering a special Astrology reading that takes an in depth look at your full astrological make up. You are more than just your Sun sign.

Leo: Mercury retrograde in your sign will be tough Leo. This transit is going to affect your image and how you come across to others. There will be times when you feel misunderstood, and you will have to work a little harder to promote the proper presentation of self. But try not to worry; if there’s any confusion, you will have plenty of opportunities to redeem yourself later. When all is said and done, you can be certain that people will no longer question your authenticity!

Virgo: Virgos will experience the effects of Mercury Rx the most since Mercury rules your sign in Astrology (along with Gemini). For you, the influence will be felt behind the scenes as you press the rewind button on certain situations that have come to pass. Nostalgia will be somewhat therapeutic as you finally put to bed a lot of the worries and anxieties kept in the back of your mind. By August 8th, you’ll be able to charge ahead without looking back- not even for a split second.

Libra: You may find yourself questioning certain groups or affiliations that you’ve recently joined. Or, you may be waiting (as patiently as possible) for news as to whether or not you’ve been accepted into a new organization or network. Either way, delays are bound to surface while Mercury is retrograde. Therefore, continue to do the best you can in the way of research and follow up. Everything will fall into place, as it should, once Mercury stations direct on August 8th.

Scorpio: Expect a few revisions, revaluations, and redoing at work over the next few weeks Scorpio. Things are bound to get lost in the shuffle, and there will be plenty of misunderstandings amongst you and your colleagues. If you’re working on any major projects, you can definitely expect to come across a few mistakes and errors. But all will be well – by August 8th, you will have worked out the kinks, and your professional standing will still be rising high.  For the entire month of July, I will be offering a special Astrology reading that takes an in depth look at your full astrological make up.

Sagittarius: If you plan to travel far and wide Sagittarius, expect to come up against a few obstacles. This also goes for any kind of study or research you’ve been doing that has caused a shift in your perspective – you are about to question your beliefs. Uncertainty that presents itself now is normal. This is the universe’s way of asking you to think long and hard, giving yourself plenty of time for conclusions. After August 8th, you’ll have the freedom to move about as you see fit. Wait for it. For the entire month of July, I will be offering a special Astrology reading that takes an in depth look at your full astrological make up. You are more than just your Sun sign.

Capricorn:  Whether you’ve been working on building intimacy with your significant other, or in negotiations on a special business venture, you will soon face a few snags while Mercury is retrograde in the sign of Leo. It may feel as if you’ve made significant progress, only to suddenly be forced to take two steps back. Retrace those steps Capricorn. You are sure to benefit in the end, having gained even more ground once Mercury stations direct on August 8th.

Aquarius: Relationship dynamics will be influenced by Mercury’s Rx. Leo is your opposite sign, so close partnerships with those you consider to be significant others are bound to be affected. You may find yourself having to revisit conversations, or even in the midst of trying to salvage one relationship in particular. Give yourself plenty of time to see where the chips fall, and wait until after August 8th before coming to a final conclusion. For the entire month of July, I will be offering a special Astrology reading that takes an in depth look at your full astrological make up. You are more than just your Sun sign.

Pisces: If you’ve been experiencing any health issues, your ailment may persist over the next couple of weeks. This isn’t anything to worry about, really. It just means that you will have to get to the root of the problem in order to resolve it for good. Same holds true if you’ve been attempting to implement new community service projects; expect some delays and obstacles, but know that all will work out in the end. Mercury Rx is bringing up these petty annoyances. All this, too, shall pass.
