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.
This week logical Mercury will enter Virgo, your sixth house of order and routine, which will give you a mental boost and help you plan out your activities. If you’ve been overindulging, this is a great time to properly plan out your day, detox or introduce a new healthy diet.
There is another very important planetary transit this week. Uranus the planet of non-conformity will be turning retrograde. The keywords for Uranus are: disruption, revolution and most importantly change. In astrology, this is the most unpredictable planet of our solar system. In 2011 Uranus has entered your sign and will be disrupting but at the same time making you more independent and individual than ever. Uranus will only leave your sign in 2018, so enjoy the ride and get your freak on.
When this planet turns retrograde you will be attracted to the weirdest and most unusual things, but overall during retrograde period there will be an inward kind of change and stimulation. The goal of Uranus is to find yourself and be true to yourself.
Expressive Mercury moves into Virgo, your fifth house of fun and games, which will make you extra creative. Use your hands to craft or paint. If in a relationship, you will want to chat and exchange new ideas with your partner. Sexy time starts in your head this week.
What is going on? Unpredictable, rebel planet Uranus is traveling through your 12th house of the unconscious. It’s been in that sector of your chart since 2011. The danger of this planetary transit is that you might hide your originality and inner genius, even more so when Uranus turns retrograde this week. The best thing for you to do now, if you haven’t yet, is trying to incorporate a meditation routine into your weekly schedule. Through yoga or t’ai chi, you’ll be able to crack the inner open and release your genius, just like Aladdin and his magical lamp. Don’t hide. The world needs your beautiful creativity.
You are ruled by Mercury, so you really need mental stimulation. When Mercury is in Virgo your mercurial sister, the current planetary energy flows favor you.
With exciting Mercury in your fourth house of home, people might randomly stop by your house and exchange ideas as you are such a fine conversationalist right now. It is also a lovely time to catch up with your parents or your siblings over some fruity summer wine.

This week Uranus turns retrograde, which will want you to reconsider a friendship which you thought was over or simply you could be bumping into old friends thanks to retrograde.
Since 2011 you might have had some radical career changes, not quite knowing what to fully focus on, since you have so many interests and talents. Cancer being a water sign, you can merge into any kind of job you wish to have. When unpredictable Uranus turns retrograde in your 10th house of career and reputation, you might go back into a job or hobby you thought you said goodbye to ages ago. If you have a boss, they might be mental and crazy but very artistic. As long as we can laugh about life and not take everything too serious, everything will be fine.
Messenger planet Mercury is in its natural base in the third house of communication. Whatever conversations you plan on having, they are going to run ultra smooth.
