Your Horoscope For This Week — Jul 12 2015

Illustrated by Lynnie Zulu.
Sentimental stargazers, this will be a three-hanky week for us all. On Wednesday, July 15, the annual new moon in Cancer activates our emo sides — Hot Topic attire not required. And it’s going to be an EXTRA gushy moon since it blooms alongside a record FIVE other planets in touchy-feely water signs. All we can say is, keep the tissues handy and prepare to be moved to tears by pretty much everything: puppies, rainbows, kittens, or a stranger’s kind words. Cozy, intimate Cancer governs our close friends and families making this the perfect week for a reunion. We may also be inspired to feather our nests so that they feel like cozier sanctuaries.

Venus, the cosmic creatrix and coquette is on the move, too. On Saturday, she decamps to fastidious Virgo until July 31. This is happy news for all the DIY-ers out there who will finally have the patience to start those summer projects. In love, Venus in Virgo can make us rather critically selective — so much so that no one can live up to the standards we set. But as the saying goes, as without, so within.
