General Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 4th

There’s a strange mix of tradition and exploration in relationships this week. Loving Venus is now in conventional Cancer, spurring desire for security. Yet her tense aspects with experimental Uranus and extreme Pluto make it hard to feel safe, as rapidly changing feelings and intense emotions bring drama to our personal lives.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Moon in your relationship houses pushes partnership issues into the spotlight this weekend. Friday evening can start on emotionally shaky ground and end up feeling like a party. But you don’t get to play and run this time because the Scorpio Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy attracts complex partners who may want more than you’re willing to give. Being honest about your limitations is the best policy right from the start.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You could have a hard time this weekend finding the simplicity and comfort you enjoy so much. The Moon is traveling through the deep waters of Scorpio, taking relationships to exciting but dangerous territory. Feelings may be exposed that alter the nature of a partnership, but the emotional journey can help you recognize what you really need in order to find happiness with another person.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your easy breezy attitude is usually very appealing to others, but it isn’t the secret sauce to heat up your love life this weekend. Being willing to share your fears may not sound sexy, but if your vulnerability is sincere, it could strengthen an ongoing relationship or help you start a new one. There’s no need to rush; take your time to process the powerful feelings that are emerging now and let things unfold naturally.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Passion is pulling you very strongly this weekend. Magnetic Venus opposes potent Pluto on Friday and the erotic Scorpio Moon is activating your 5th House of Romance. Your powers of seduction are higher than usual so there’s no need to wait for someone else to make the first move. Coming on strong and expressing your desires may feel uncomfortable at first, but others find your newfound assertiveness to be refreshingly sexy.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This weekend isn’t the best time to be brassy and sassy. It’s much more interesting (and real) to allow your vulnerability to rise to the surface. Self-pity and complaining aren’t attractive, but a truthful expression of your needs and concerns can earn you trust. Investing emotionally in a meaningful connection will be more rewarding now than keeping things light.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The purpose of using your impeccable logic this weekend is to discuss powerful emotional issues, instead of inventing ways to avoid them in your mind. You can untie knots of misunderstanding when you’re willing to talk about delicate matters without getting bogged down in blame or guilt. Seeking to solve problems now by engaging in constructive dialogue is healthier than ignoring the situation any longer.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel disappointed in a person close to you on Friday as your key planet Venus is opposed by suspicious Pluto. Yet this can be a perfect opportunity to dig in to an issue that you’ve been previously unwilling to face. Confronting the truth is a courageous act that will either heal the relationship or give you the strength to help you pursue love with someone else.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon traveling through your sign this weekend stirs up your hunger for intimacy. It’s still not unreasonable to be afraid of going after who and what you want, but doing nothing is even more dangerous now. Silence will isolate you, while speaking up, even if it’s a struggle, can clear the air and restore trust or convince you that it’s time to move on.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your easygoing and friendly nature is usually delightful and garners plenty of positive attention. But the Moon is hanging out in your secretive 12th House this weekend, which requires a more subtle approach to self-expression. Quiet conversations in out-of-the-way places will do more for your love life now than partying hardy and playing hard.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Complicated friends and passionate pals play active roles in your personal life this weekend. The Moon lighting up your 11th House of Groups is ideal for going out with a gang of people. Yet no matter how exciting things get, knowing when to keep silent might be more important than anything you say. Choose your words and companions carefully now so things don’t get messy later on.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The freedom and independence you normally crave could be hard to come by this weekend. The Moon enters intense Scorpio late on Friday, which can bring out the clingy sides of people. Don’t allow yourself to be cornered or manipulated by anyone, but if you desire intimacy, you may have to lose yourself in the mysterious world of emotions to find it.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s amazing how you can use your powers of persuasion with such subtlety this weekend. You have a very good chance of getting your way without anyone feeling like you’re tricking them. You don’t even have to explain your motives unless you want to now. Leaving an air of mystery around you only makes you more captivating to others.
