Your AstroTwins Weekend Horoscope for July 4 & 5

Easy there, Ram. On Saturday, your desire to break free of constraints is at an all-time high, as the moon in Aquarius, your eleventh house of independence, forms an opposition to expansive Jupiter in Leo. You could suddenly renege on plans with your partner or someone close, in favor of hanging with a new friend. The call for freedom is SO high that you may not even feel like you have a choice. Of course you do. However, if you can consciously do something spontaneous to shake up the energy, you may be able to liberate yourself, without creating a massive disruption. On Sunday, you’re feeling a lot more down-tempo, with the moon in Pisces, your twelfth house of the subconscious, forming a supportive trine to go-getter Mars. Perhaps you’ll push for clearer communication on the home front, or with an emotional matter. A near-psychic hunch could lead you to serendipitous interactions, too. Allow your intuition to guide all your decisions—right down to “turn left at this street corner.” You never know what the universe might have in store.

Hold your ground, Taurus. On Saturday, you could feel like you need to be a little rigid, as the moon in Aquarius, your tenth house of structure, forms an opposition to carefree Jupiter. Perhaps a loved one is vying for your attention, and making unfair claims on your ambitions or work time. You’re a family-centric person, but you definitely need to chart your own course today. The difficulty could be that you’re in the midst of a difficult decision, but the peanut gallery’s unsolicited feedback isn’t helping. Ease up, on them and on yourself, too. On Sunday, the mood lightens up considerably, as the moon in Pisces, your eleventh house of group action, forms a supportive trine to energizer Mars. Hit a fun brunch spot with friends, or round everyone up for an afternoon of Ultimate Frisbee. Conversation will be lively and inspiring, so don’t limit the guest list. The more, the merrier!

What commitments? On Saturday, you may try to get out of a pre-arranged plan, as the moon in Aquarius, your ninth house of freedom, forms an opposition to expansive Jupiter. Instead of making an excuse, you might try to be honest first. What would be SO terrible about telling the truth here? As much as you want to go play volleyball and eat hot dogs, you’re kind of having a crisis of faith and would really prefer to go light a candle and meditate (or whatever your particular situation may be). On Sunday, you’re feeling revved up around your professional life, thanks to the moon in Pisces, your ambitious tenth house, forming a supportive trine to vitality-inducing Mars. There’s a strong sense that you CAN take this victory lap in your career. This is not a day to shut out the world, though. A few calculated emails or a couple of hours drafting your master plan, and you’re golden.

Shaky ground? On Saturday, your security could feel wobbly, thanks to the moon in Aquarius, your resourceful eighth house, forming a tricky opposition to overconfident Jupiter. You could feel like your well-oiled world domination plan is suddenly off the rails. Instead of scrambling for pennies or reaching for false comforts, take this high-octane energy and ask yourself: What do I really need to feel stable, in my emotional, financial and spiritual lives? Chances are, this crisis of faith is just what you need, allowing you to see what really matters. On Sunday, things are considerably more upbeat, as the moon in Pisces, your ninth house of travel and growth, forms a supportive trine to energetic Mars in Cancer. You’re revved up to take a leap of faith around a grand vision or a personal project. Maybe it’s a fresh start you’re craving. Which area of your life is the most ready for a makeover? Push past limits, Cancer. You’ve got this.

Push-pull? You could feel at odds with your partner or a close friend on Saturday, as the moon in Aquarius, your seventh house of relationships, forms an opposition to carefree Jupiter. Maybe your honey thinks you’re being selfish when you want to be decadent and not adhere to their strict schedule of shopping and other errands. And honestly, maybe you are. Yet, a little autonomy never hurt anyone (especially not a Leo). Strike a balance between being loving and also clear—your need to fly solo isn’t personal. On Sunday, your desires are through the roof, all thanks to a supportive trine between the moon in Pisces, your eighth house of intimacy, and sultry Mars. Hang that “Do Not Disturb” sign, Leo. You need some boudoir bonding (especially if things were shaky on Saturday). Solo Lions can also get in touch with their seductive sides by taking a pole dancing class or flirting with abandon wherever you go. But the real key to sensual fulfillment today is to simply slow down. Take it all in.

Get a grip, Virgo. On Saturday, the moon in Aquarius, your analytical sixth house, faces off against expansive Jupiter. You could blow a small situation completely out of proportion. Maybe someone makes a triggering comment, and next thing you know, there’s a bona fide ego battle. Avoid self-criticism, too, which can make you short-fused. Remember, you’re doing the best that you can, so guard against perfectionism. A good workout can really get you out of your head. Be patient, and hit the gym. On Sunday, the mood is much sweeter, thanks to the moon in Pisces, your cooperative seventh house, forming a supportive trine to go-getter Mars. Grab your favorite plus-one and hit a fun barbecue, or blanket-hop at your local park with coleslaw and potato salad. One-on-one time is wonderful, but so is sharing the fun with a wider circle. Keep it light—and inclusive.

Torn? On Saturday, you’re having a hard time choosing between your friends and your love interest, thanks to an opposition between the moon in your passionate fifth house, and free-flying Jupiter. Maybe your S.O. doesn’t quite fit in with your crew, and it’s hard to mix everyone together. Or you could actually be fielding two invites—one romantic and one platonic—and weighing whether or not you can make everyone happy. (Spoiler alert: you can’t.) Follow your heart and be as diplomatic as possible. On Sunday, the moon in Pisces, your sixth house of wellbeing, forms a supportive trine to energetic Mars, putting you in a capable, health-conscious frame of mind. Take action on your own behalf—self-care is paramount now. Get your sweat on first thing in the morning. Shop for organic groceries and plan some nutritious recipes for the week. Organizing your schedule for the week puts you on a solid foundation to achieve your long-term goals. Start on the right foot with some inspired preparation.

Make yourself at home? On Saturday, a faceoff between the moon and free-roaming Jupiter could pull you between family duties and worldly desires. You may even have some work to do this weekend that cuts into your relaxation time. A loved one may try to give you a guilt trip about this. Ask yourself: have you been neglecting this person, especially in favor of professional connections? You may need to “time in” a bit today. Set your projects aside and offer some uninterrupted face time. On Sunday, you’re in a vivacious mood, thanks to the moon in Pisces, your fifth house of passion, forming a supportive trine to go-getter Mars. Do something totally spontaneous to wrap up your weekend. Not only will you have a blast, but romantic sparks could also fly.

Pettiness alert! On Saturday, you’re so not seeing the forest for the trees, as the moon in Aquarius, your third house of ideas and communication, forms an opposition to expansive Jupiter. Perhaps you’re freaking out about something major, and so it’s easier—more manageable—to sweat the small stuff. Or maybe a disagreement with a friend turns into an unsettling hashing-out session, leaving you wondering if you were ever that connected to begin with. (Helpful hint: you probably were. This is a dramatic time.) An issue could balloon, but don’t let emotional extremes ruin your weekend. On Sunday, you feel a lot more positive, as the moon in Pisces, your foundational fourth house, forms a helpful trine to action-oriented Mars. You’re in a sentimental mood—really wanting to roll out the red carpet for your most intimate ties. You might cook a mouth-watering meal, or just do some much-needed bonding. In smaller groups, you can share from a vulnerable and honest place. Letting your guard down can spark some inspired and lasting connections.

“I’ve got this!” On Saturday, you could have a hard time asking for help, as the moon in Aquarius, your second house of self-sufficiency, forms an opposition to abundant Jupiter. Normally, you have a hard time ceding control, or even letting anyone else pitch in, but today, you’re especially strong-willed—and that could be a problem. Maybe you’re in a tough financial spot and need a loan, or perhaps a partner’s thoughts on sharing responsibility are at odds with yours. You can’t exactly go it alone, though. Come up with a compromise, something you’ve never tried before. On Sunday, the moon in your communication house forms a supportive trine with energetic Mars, sparking dialogue in your closest relationships. You’re in a talkative mood, so sit down for a catch-up conversation, or fire up a video chat if you’re miles apart. If you need to clear the air with someone, it’s an excellent day to hash things out productively.

Rebel, rebel! On Saturday, a partner or friend may not appreciate your contrarian ways, all thanks to the moon in Aquarius, forming an opposition with indulgent Jupiter. What is bold and truthful to you could come across as arrogant and stubborn to someone you care about. When a Water Bearer digs in those heels, you don’t readily budge. Try gently but firmly asserting your need for “me” time. It’s possible that your partner will be happy with even a modest concession. On Sunday, you’re feeling especially grounded, thanks to a supportive trine between the moon in Pisces, your second house of security, and energetic Mars. Do all the practical things required to set yourself up for a good week. Go over your budget. Get in a nice, long workout, in case the coming week gets too hectic. Write a list of what you’d like to accomplish, delineating between “urgent” items and ones that can wait.

On Saturday, you’re feeling conflicted, as the moon in Aquarius, your twelfth house of the subconscious, forms an opposition to abundant Jupiter. Just as you have a moment of peace—maybe you even exhale and smile—you could start second-guessing yourself. Part of you wants to go with the flow, and another part of you can’t chase those anxious feelings away. Get a massage, go for a swim, or just enjoy a Saturday siesta. This is not the day to push yourself too hard. Making a list of all the things you appreciate about yourself and your life can totally reboot your perspective. On Sunday, the atmosphere is abuzz, and you’re at the center of it all. The moon in Pisces, your first house of self, forms a supportive trine to energetic Mars, putting you in fun-loving spirits. You are definitely not shy about expressing yourself now, Pisces—which is why everyone wants you around. Since the energy will run high today, you may want to be choosy about where you spend your time. Avoid people who are needy or clingy, because you will want to roam free.
