Libra Weekly Horoscope from July 26 to August 1
Vibe check! As a Libra, you’re all about collaboration, but starting this Tuesday, July 27, you may want to curate your crew more mindfully. Savvy Mercury sails into elite Leo and your eleventh house of teamwork and technology, ushering in a new wave of “candidates” for the Libra dream team. With this entertaining energy afoot, you’ll be drawn to people with energy and spark. A little humor—and flattery—will go a long way if you’re breaking ice, along with a dollop of your goddess-given charm. Get ready! Your professional and personal hives will be abuzz with all kinds of action during this Mercury cycle. Fun and inspirational as it’s sure to be, to avoid burnout, be sure to get plenty of rest and hydration. Summer heat can sap electrolytes and other vital nutrients, so don’t wait till you’re parched. Make a habit of taking sips throughout the day. Since the eleventh house rules social activism and humanitarian work, find time to search for like-minded organizations and events. And ask friends if they’re involved in any causes you might support to help spread positive messages.
If drama ripples through your love life this Wednesday, don't make any sudden moves! Magnifier Jupiter, which has been retrograde in Pisces and your daily work zone since June 20, flips back into Aquarius for the rest of its retrograde. Between now and October 18, it'll be revealing every fifth-house "flaw" that you need to fix in the name of personal growth! This means anything involving dating, creativity or public recognition—for starters. If you’ve fallen down a romantic rabbit hole, these next three months may deliver a lifeline. But you don’t need to do anything drastic. Rather than fully commit—or bail on something with promise—hit pause, step back and reevaluate the situation as you clarify what you want and need.
With Jupiter in reverse, the wisest course of action might be to stay present and simply react to the person who is in front of you. And also who ISN’T. Because retrogrades evoke the past, your thoughts might be drifting back to someone you nixed in favor of a pick-me-girl who can’t (or won’t) commit. If you truly can’t stop thinking about them, shoot them ONE message, but then distract yourself. Once Jupiter resumes forward motion, you’ll be much clearer about what and who you want in your life.
Strong inducement to take R-n-R seriously arrives (in the nick of time) on Thursday as action planet Mars downshifts to your introspective twelfth house of release until September 14. It might take a while until you DON’T feel simultaneously wired and tired! Over the next seven weeks, as you begin to decline non-essential invites and put the focus back on you, you may finally get back into a healthy, comfortable groove. Prioritize any healing or forgiveness work that’s been on the “eventually” list between now and September 14. Mars can stir up strong emotions, which you don’t want to hang on to. And with your ruler, seductive Venus, traveling alongside through Virgo until August 16, you could drift off to fantasy land with someone who may or may not stick around forever-after. (And that’s okay!) This non-temporal transit doesn’t live by an earthly clock. If you want to get lost in the moment, no one’s stopping you. Just don’t lose sight of healthy boundaries in the process! Mars in the twelfth house can also summon the muse, so give free rein to your creativity and put the inner critic to bed. Then prepare for the downloads to come rushing in!
