No matter who you are, life never stops being a wild, unpredictable, and dizzying ride. Even though we go through periods of stagnancy and sameness, that ride always takes a sharp turn just when we begin to feel lulled into complacency. There's no way to know when things are about to change irrevocably. Try as we might, there's no way to fully prepare for a shock, either. Although change often entails a loss, it almost always includes a gain, too. Your July 9, 2018, weekly horoscope is putting you on the precipice of something big, and there's nothing to be afraid of.
This week will be nothing short of meaningful. With a partial solar eclipse coinciding with a new moon in Cancer on July 12, you're nearing the end of a long and arduous journey. Perhaps this journey was literal, taking place mostly in the material world. Maybe this journey existed within you, allowing for some heavy introspection. Regardless, you're about to leave a part of yourself behind so you can embrace something new. And as Jupiter retrograde finally comes to a close on July 10, you will be able to tie off all the loose ends of the spiritual and mental work you've been doing for the past few months. If there's still work to do, Venus entering Virgo on July 9 will provide you with extra motivation to follow through with your promises, to rely on actions instead of empty words.
