Your Weekly Horoscopes July 19 to 25, 2020
Cancer season ends this week, but it doesn’t go quietly. There’s a new moon in the sign of the sensitive crab on the Monday the 20th, which is an ideal moment for us to set intentions and write down goals. The sun makes an exact opposition to disciplined Saturn on the same day, encouraging us to implement clear structures and rituals for what we intend to grow—whether that’s an herb garden or a relationship with your step-kids.
On the Wednesday the 22nd, the sun returns home to the lion’s sign! (Happy birthday to our fabulous lions who were simply born to be famous, including Kylie Jenner, Meghan Markle and Maya Rudolph!). Though things will still be far from easy, Leo season feels like a glamorous beach vacation in comparison to the rest of 2020. Let’s sip our frozen cocktails in the heat and plan our next moves while we still can.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
Since June, you’ve been spending a lot of time alone, and the new moon on the 20th is your final chance to relish in solitary bliss. Have you been keeping a dream diary? Logging your meditation hours? Organize your unconscious thoughts while you can because as soon as your season begins on Wednesday the 22nd, you’re back in the whirlwind of the spotlight.

Luxuriate in yourself again.
This week’s mantra: Me-time has finally arrived.
