Last week may be a painful celebration for us, but life is way too impatient to stop and wait until we swallow our feelings whole. So why don’t we bring fun back to everything we do instead? I hope you’re ready for a taste of the self-love fire, everyone!

For those who have been spending their time pushing their dreams aside for others, it’s time to rejoice and bring out the self-centered you!

With Full Moon in Capricorn and Sun transiting in Leo happening this week, we are expecting a full steam week ahead for our career and ambition. Time to focus on our ego and our hunger by putting our happiness before everything else.

This month’s Full Moon will fall on the 19th of July in Capricorn, the sign of fatherhood, restriction, and authority. We no longer have the time to dream or to fiddle around with our goals, because Full Moon in Capricorn will illuminate us with great ideas to fulfill our ambition. This is a great week to start planning the strategy of what’s next. What will you do once you’re accepted in your dream company? Where will you see yourself in the next few years? Think about them questions you received in your latest job interview and ask them to yourself over and over again. Wishing and praying only is not enough without the will to make it happen. The Full Moon will illuminate your path finding new ways to keep you on the right track of perseverance until the next New Moon.

If you’re a Leo, get ready for July 23rd when the Sun is coming home to your star sign. Sun is the planetary ruler of Leo, the roaring sign that rules ego, optimism, and center stage. Dear other star signs, ever wonder what it feels like to live, work, and play to the fullest? Tune into your inner lioness this week and channel Leo’s zestful energy. Keep your spirit high, but don’t fall for the ego trap. It’s very easy for us to snap at the littlest mistakes or, in our excitement, yell at someone, when Leo’s symbolical fire starts burning your feet.

It’s hard enough to be pressured by Full Moon in Capricorn to calculate your movement ahead, so why not do it with Sun in Leo’s smile and childlike buoyancy?
 

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

Ace of Disks

Your birthday will actually start at the end of the week, but hey happy birthday Leo! This week you’ll need to reprioritize your wants and needs. Are you sure you’ve been doing everything you can to achieve your goal? Or have you been doing it halfway because subconsciously you knew that your effort would never be enough? Whether it’s career or money, it’s important to recalibrate your plan every few weeks to see if you’re heading the right way. Keep your aim straight at all times, just in case you’re in the mood to throw that javelin ahead.

You should listen to:

Time - Yuna

You should wear:

Incorporate a hint of dominant red in any of your style item to remind you of your fiery passion. Bright red pumps, red scarf, or MAC’s Ruby Woo lipstick? Baby, you know your va-va-voom. If you’re feeling a lot braver, try donning a classic red dress and a badass heels and walk with confidence. You got this, Leo!

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Seven of Disks (Failure)

 It’s so hard to convince you to like someone, Virgo. Because the moment someone gets near, you’ll analyze their every move. My suggestion: don’t focus on the hate, but focus on the love. Focus on their good side and how they’ll be the best man/woman ever to walk beside you.

 
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)

Three of Cups (Abundance)

 Too many good things happening at the moment but it seems that you haven’t been grateful enough yet. Have you done that charity thing you've always wanted to do? Have you spent enough time taking care of the people you love? Don’t forget that everyone has worked hard to keep you on top, Libra.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Ten of Wands (Oppression)

 Do you want to be the best, Scorpio? Come and show me your secret weapon! Recognition will only come if you’ve shown your teeth and when your hunger takes center stage. It’s not like you’ve been under appreciated for no reason, rather it’s because you haven’t shown your 100 percent strength yet 

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

Six of Cups (Pleasure)

 After a week in the spell closet, your money luck is finally rolling into your pocket. Although it’s all shining shimmering splendid, try not to get blinded with money, okay? Don’t let it force you to sacrifice your value or your distinctive opinion. Keep being you and money will find its way back. 

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Lust

Whoever says that they fall in love with obvious reasons with you is totally bullshitting you right now. Love is irrational, hence the reasons behind it usually remains unknown. They shouldn’t fall for you because you’re pretty or nice. The real ones wouldn’t even know why they’re feeling the way they’re feeling.


Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Seven of Cups (Debauch)

 A little curiosity doesn’t seem so bad, but it could still kill the cat regardless. Be careful what you wish for, Aquarius. If you’re thinking about doing something you shouldn’t do right now, don’t. Cheating, lying, stealing, or any other bad deeds based on curiosity won’t do you any good in the long run. 

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Queen of Wands

So you’ve been working on your dominant side a little bit. That’s great! Use that anger, that dissatisfaction, to take control of yourself. Don’t say that you don’t care, because you know you do. But be careful not to get caught up by your own feelings, because the things that you bury deep will eventually blow up.

 
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Queen of Swords
 
Rest well, Aries. You’ve done your best so far, so it’s time to reap the fruit of your all-nighters and reward yourself with a good night sleep. There are still a lot of things to be done, but that’s another story for another time. Let your mind and body rest until the sun rises again and let the Universe does its magic.
  
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Two of Cups (Love)
 
What you thought as feelings for them are merely returning familiar memories. Our present will not replace our yesterday, but it may open another beginning we haven’t thought about. So it’s up to you. Are you falling for them because of who they are, or is it because they reminded you of someone else?
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)


Death
 
Writing a new chapter of your life will never be easy. The road will get bumpy, for sure, and hearts may be broken. But leaving your usual go-to person may open a new vacancy for someone with a fresher eye. It’s like purging the toxin in your body before getting better. Maybe this one will last forever? Who knows!
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
The Hierophant
 
It’s time to walk by yourself and ignore the toxic people around you. Haters are going to hate, and god knows when they’re going to stop. Keep yourself centered and grounded to avoid all the temptation to open your mouth, because nothing good comes from petty arguments. Stop wasting your time.
