Weekly Horoscopes: August 1-7, 2016
Welcome to Galore horoscopes, where we’ll advise you on whether to expect drama, chill vibes, hot sex, or all of the above over the coming week.
Peep your sign’s seven-day forecast, starting Monday and ending the following Sunday, below. Pro tip: instead of your sun sign, make sure to read your rising sign as it’s far more accurate.
Red hot Mars will move into Sagittarius, your ninth house of the higher mind and foreign travel. You’ve had plenty of steamy nights this past month while Mars was in Scorpio. But from now on you’ll be focusing your energies more on traveling, higher education, and spirituality.
There will be a new Moon in Leo, your 5th house of pleasure, true love and fun. Any romance begun now will be filled with fun and laughter, just the way you like it. Add a dash of dramatic flair — it will make your life even more interesting. The 5th house also rules fertility, so be careful not to accidentally get knocked up. Or do, whatever.
Thanks to peace maker Venus moving into your 6th house of daily routines and health, there will be more order in your life and you’ll be getting along much better with all your work colleagues. Use the lunar power to start a new fitness routine.
As soon as feisty Mars enters your eighth house, you will be bringing sexy back. Try to release any built-up pressure from this hectic year, and use your sensual raw energy between the sheets to get loose. Watch out not to get too jealous or possessive over a lover while Mars is in your eighth house, which naturally is the house of Scorpio.
Still, this week will be lovey dovey, especially at home and with your family thanks to the big hearted new moon in Leo. If you’ve been too busy to spend time with mama, papa, and your siblings, now would be the time. Use this magical lunar spirit to remodel your home and make it more inviting. Electrifying Venus will be moving into Virgo, your 5th house of true love, fun and games, so creativity will be on a high.
On Tuesday, temperamental Mars enters your house of relationships and other people, which means you could be attracting very powerful people this month, some who might help you advance even more in your career. Watch out though, since Mars could also be stirring up little fights and discussions.
You will see lots of good news come to you from your siblings this week. Meet up or arrange a Facetime call to catch up. All thanks to lovely Venus in Virgo, your 4th house of family and home, and the positive Leo new moon in your 3rd house of communications and relatives. Learn something new now, any kind of skill you’re interested in. If you start taking small steps, the powerful new moon will help you to succeed.
While sexy Mars was in Scorpio, you might have been very flirty and tremendously creative in your endeavors. On Saturday, fiery Mars will be moving into Sagittarius, which rules your sixth house of health and routine. You’ll have the energy to actually hit the gym and properly work out. Be careful not to be too bitchy or bossy at work though. We all know you have been sacrificing a lot of your time, but make sure to take your energy and turn it into something positive.
You will want to indulge and buy nice things for you or your loved ones. Throw the deluxe Leo new moon energy into the mix and you’ll be really good at setting realistic financial goals. On top of that, you might also find new sources of income.
This Friday, Mars enters your passionate 5th house of romantic encounters and creativity. Creative enterprises will bloom and you will have the stamina to work hard, day and night. The fire inside you will be burning, especially in regards to your love life.
The glorious New Moon in your sign kicks off a new cycle for you. Pop open the champagne bottle and let the journey begin! Watch out while shopping as you might over indulge and buy too many pretty things, since pleasure seeking Venus in Virgo will be moving into your second house of money.
On Tuesday, Mars moves into Sagittarius, your 4th house of home and family. Mars in this area of the chart always brings drama to the home front. Arguments with family and siblings might just pop up out of nowhere. Thankfully, we tend to forgive our family members, even if we are capable of saying the meanest, evilest things to them.
Kick off that spiritual healing journey. The powerful new Moon in Leo will be illuminating your 12th house of secrets. I suggest you keep a diary of your dreams. You could encounter messages from your deep unconscious, so analyze your dreamer notes. Who knows, you might end up writing an amazing song or poem, which could help other people to heal.
With Venus, the planet of love and attraction in your 1st house of self, you’ll feel like improving your looks. Go for that new haircut! Bewitching Venus is boosting your aura, and you’re more charming than ever. You might also be more flirtatious than usual. Woohoo!
This Tuesday, powerful gutsy Mars moves into Sagittarius, your 3rd house of communication and media. You will be able to really influence your followers and get even more souls wanting to join your movement thanks to the new moon hitting your 11th house of dreams, friends, and society.
Friends could turn into lovers now. The new moon in bold Leo stirs things up. A friend could declare his love for you too, and in a very direct way. Or maybe you are going to be the one! Relationships that start through friendship indeed last the longest, since you get to know one another pretty well before things get too heated. If you want to start a new group or club, now would be a good time as you have the power to attract people who share the same ideas. This could turn into something big.
After a long tour through your sign, Mars, the warrior planet, which was making you overall feistier, will be moving into Sagittarius, which rules your financial 2nd house. If you and your gang pitched a project, now is the time to sort out the finances. Be fair and plan ahead carefully, since Mars can make you hot headed.
A powerful new Moon in Leo, the sign of fame, is hitting your 10th house of career and reputation. Start a new venture or Instagram account! You have full planetary support to make it happen. Watch for the corresponding full moon in 6 months’ time for peak results. Most importantly, make a choice to be happy. With friendly Venus in the mix, you’ll be able to attract a ton of new souls that’ll really inspire you.
Warrior hot Mars will be moving into your sign this week! You will be a charismatic volcano ready to erupt.
Mars kicks off yet another adventurous time. Couple that with the new moon in fellow fire sign Leo, your expansive 9th house of the higher mind and foreign travel, and nothing can stop you. It’s time to live life to its fullest!
The magical new moon unified with delightful Mars enlightens your spiritual beliefs, shining new rays on new possibilities. Dive deeper into Astrology or Mysticism. You could find profound wisdom that will help you expand your career. With charming Venus in the astro combo, you might meet a love interest while doing something work-related. Yay.
Warrior planet Mars will move into your 12th house of the unconscious. A lot of passive aggressive energy will be stirred up, like a little tornado inside of you. The thing is, you won’t quite know why, since the 12th house also holds the secrets you mostly hide… even from yourself. I suggest you do some Tai Chi instead of Yoga — get that inner warrior out. Release the negative emotions inside of you and open up your heart chakra to let your energy flow.
Trying to sleep at night might be more difficult at the moment, since nightmares could haunt you now. Try to encode the messages, even if they scare you. In order to grow we need to face our fears and conquer them.
Go getter Mars will be wrapping up its journey through your 10th house of career. Co-workers might have experienced your more competitive side. On Tuesday though, after rising to the top, Mars in Sagittarius, your 11th house of collaborations and tech, will lead you towards like minded individuals. You will finally have the energy to launch your latest project.
Ready for a new relationship? There is a romantic new moon hitting your 7th house of other people. If single, you might surprisingly enter a new liaison. This week’s mood is romantic. If coupled, you could celebrate or re-define your unfading love. Maybe even over a candlelit dinner? With the new moon mixed with Venus this week, you’ll feel reborn.
