Your Horoscope For This Week — Jul 05 2015

Illustrated by Lynnie Zulu.
Move over, Khaleesi. This week is the mother of all dragons — at least in the beginning. Monday, the ego-driven sun tangles into a Meereenese Knot with plotting, secretive Pluto. Oh yes, there will be power struggles. Hidden agendas. Complex motives. Make no assumptions early this week, because nothing will be what it seems. Then again, there’s something quite seductive about all this esoteric intrigue. Unraveling a mystery could become an obsession — but one that might just have a happy ending. (Take that as you will.)

On Wednesday, messenger Mercury cools those fiery flames, nestling in watery Cancer until July 24. Let’s try a little tenderness now, stargazers. The heart-opening vibes of this Mercury phase reminds us to take better care of one another. There are other ways to get to the top than digging our statement heels in other people’s backs! This is an ideal time for connecting to old friends and family and taking on short-term home improvement projects. Bring on the paint rollers and potting soil!
