Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of July 27 – August 2 cosmic explorers!
We Begin With a First Quarter Moon
Last week we said goodbye to Cancer season. This week’s astrology overview starts with the first quarter Moon, which always represents a mini-crisis, but don’t fret! This isn’t necessarily a bad thing.The word ‘crisis’ in Latin actually means decision, and this wasn’t inherently negative.
Be prepared to see some change in the status of what you’re working towards, and be ready to stay the course no matter what. Often this is a test to see how committed you are to this goal in your heart, and how much you trust the Universe will help you.
We Are in Leo Season!
By now you’re probably enjoying the Sun in Leo, which is one of the positive highlights of July 2020 astrology. It is bringing out our more jovial side, and helping us shed the bad vibes from the stress of the last few months.
The positive energy is also building this week with the waxing Moon phase, which means you’re creative, expansive, and able to take action on making your dreams a reality.
Use this energy to keep taking steps towards your big goal, and you’ll likely see them blossom at the beginning of next week when there is a Full Moon in Aquarius. Don’t worry, you’ll get all the information you need for this upcoming transit in our next weekly forecast!
Venus Leaves the Retrograde Shadow
For all you lovers and wanna-be lovers, Venus leaves its shadow Wednesday, July 29 which means the lingering effects of Venus retrograde will finally clear!
We will feel less pressure and tension in our love lives, and be more clear on how to proceed and grow. We would be remiss not to mention there is still quite a bit of retrograde energy. This means we are still going through a transformation process personally and collectively, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while we rebirth.

What else can you expect this week from the stars?
This week, make time for fun, enjoy those extroverted Leo vibes, take strides towards your heart’s greatest desires, and be okay with taking time to regroup whenever you need it as the planets help you clear your subconscious.
This is a great time to keep visual reminders up in your home about your goals because the energy of the Sun will push you towards whatever you focus on!
Making astrology a bigger part of your life helps you ride the waves of the cosmos with ease, and allows you to be prepared for upcoming transits. Be sure to take advantage of our free 2020 monthly astrology calendar, and free daily horoscopes.

Thursday, July 30
Transit: Mercury in Cancer (Opposition) Jupiter in Capricorn. This is a positive time for talking through the things you may have avoided in your finances. Maybe ask for help to resolve an issue you’ve been sweeping under the rug to relieve stress.
Budgeting or creating a schedule can help lower this stress, and allow you to stay in a high vibe.
Transit: Mercury in Cancer (Trine) Neptune in Pisces. We have a lot of watery energy which can make us feel a bit “ungrounded”, so it may help to actually connect to nature by taking a walk or a salt bath.
Do simple things that don’t require perfect mental clarity or creative genius.
Friday, July 31
Moon: Capricorn – We can get stuff done today, and we have an eye for the finer things in life. It’s a good day for dates that could lead to a long-term commitment because you are focused on what will make you happy down the road.
