Hidden Insights observes only three major events in the heavens this week, which makes this week’s horoscopes short, yet powerful. Venus and Mars both change signs, and a total solar eclipse bring major changes to Earth. The first planetary ingress is Mars moving into the sign of Leo. This is a confident position for the red planet, and many will not only feel motivated to achieve success, but confident in their abilities. We can expect sexual energy to also run high, which can produce a greater number of both pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. It is important to remember to practice safe sex more than ever right now.
This week’s big event is the total solar eclipse on Tuesday, 2 July. This eclipse will be mostly easily viewed in South America, which means this area of the globe will feel its effects most strongly. In Cancer, this eclipse promises to revolutionize the world’s approach to the home, as well as family dynamics. It is common to feel the effects of an eclipse leading up to the actual event, and a number recent and surprising queer rights victories in South American countries clearly show how the changeable energy of an eclipse can have an effect on the world stage.
As Venus moves into Cancer on Wednesday, 3 July 2019, the world becomes more tender and affectionate. This is a harmonious placement for the planet of love, and we can expect many around the globe to approach relationships with devotion and gentle care. This makes for a great week to express any feelings that may have been hidden, and to hear about engagements or weddings.
This week’s homework assignment focuses on the powerful energy of a total solar eclipse. Eclipses represent times when we can shed old identities and banish areas of our life, including unhealthy patterns. In Cancer, we can remove two types of blockages in our lives. We can let go of childhood trauma, or make drastic changes to our home environment.
While the eclipse occurs on Tuesday, 2 June, it is possible to work with the energy all week. Remember, as the light of the Sun dies, so too can the aspects of our lives we wish to banish disappear.
As the light returns as the Moon moves away, we can bring new energy in through cosmic alchemical transformation.
Aries (21 March — 20 April)
Self-discipline may be difficult for you this week, Aries, as your ruling planet moves into dramatic Leo. You certainly have more energy at your disposal, and you are itching to create, do, and move about. A passionate encounter is promised mid-week, as your sex drive is at an all-time high right now. This week’s eclipse strikes your fourth house, which may force you to re-examine a family dynamic, or make major changes around the home. As Venus moves into Cancer on Wednesday, 3 June, you can expect to be called to teach or mentor someone in your life before the week is out. Let your skills of leadership shine, but try not to leave your student in the dust.
Eclipse motto: Greatness is measured by courage of the heart.
Taurus (21 April — 20 May)
A busy week at home is promised, Taurus, as you seem to have an unending supply of energy for domestic matters. Don’t be surprised if you’re inspired to clean out an old closet or drawer while you purge your surroundings. This week’s eclipse is in your third house, which bring satisfaction to your ability to express yourself vocally. Stimulating conversations with others are sure to change a long-held belief you’ve had. As Venus also enters your third house on Wednesday, 3 July 2019, it brings with it cheer and optimism. Lately, you’ve been feeling a bit defeated, and now you can finally see light at the end of a long tunnel.
Eclipse motto: Your pain today, will be your strength tomorrow.
Gemini (21 May — 20 June)
You may be feeling a little scattered this week, Gemini, as it is difficult to focus on a single task. As Mars throws your attention of balance, you can’t help but feel more assertive. However, you must be cautious not to roar to loudly around others. A booming voice will not be received well right now. Midweek you can expect a financial shock, and a major overhaul to how you earn money is promised with this week’s eclipse. For you, this eclipse can create an abundance of prosperity if you’ve previously struggled, or create tension if you’ve been living an indulgent lifestyle.
Eclipse motto: One thing at a time.
Cancer (21 June — 20 July)
This week’s total solar eclipse is in Cancer, which makes it a very personal event for the crab. Those born July 1st, 2nd, or 3rd will be hit the strongest. You are on the cusp of entering a new phase of your personal development, and will be challenged to expand your self-confidence. Expect to be placed in a number of uncomfortable positions in order to help yourself grow. For many, this may be feel like a shock to the system, as what has always been familiar and comfortable is no longer stable in your life. Venus also enters your sign this week, making it difficult for you to deny yourself anything. This is a challenging position for Venus to be in during an eclipse, and a series of let downs is possible. Your old beliefs, and securities can no longer sustain you and the loss of a job, family, or home is possible now to push you out of your comfort zone. At its best, you need to learn to live with less, and become satisfied with the simple things in life.
Eclipse motto: Less is more.
Leo (21 July — 20 August)
Mars moves into your sign this week, Leo, giving you the strength of the warrior planet. Here, you are energized, and ready to tackle anything that comes your way. However, you may also notice you are being more irritable than usual, and you run the risk of offending those closest to you with your aggressive tones. This is exaggerated by the eclipse and Venus both occurring in your twelfth house. Expect to experience strain on your relationships right now, as the Universe is asking you to examine your motives in relationships. If you take more than you give, you can expect to be called out on the behaviour.
Eclipse motto: Have courage and be kind.
Virgo (21 August — 20 September)
Energy levels wane for you this week, Virgo, as Mars dips into your twelfth house. Here, the planet of action gets to spend a few weeks resting. This is the perfect time to retreat into your own little world and recharge. As it may be difficult to get motivated this week, don’t overload your to-do list. This week’s eclipse strikes your house of friends. This will bring a purge in your social circles, and may require you to end a friendship or two over the next three weeks. If conflict surfaces, remember that you may not have the energy to battle it out right now. It would be best to allow drama to unfold around you without getting personally involved.
Eclipse motto: I am enough.
Libra (21 September — 20 October)
As a naturally social creature, Libra, it is often easy for you to get along with others. This week you will be called to use these skills to lead those around you. Mars promises the opportunity to organize a project or lead an event. This Cancer eclipse emphasizes the need for embracing leadership in your house of career and reputation. You can expect a major change to your work environment right now, which can easily catapult you towards professional heights that you have not even dreamed about. Venus, your ruling planet, changes signs on Wednesday, 3 June, and joins the eclipse energy in your tenth house. This promises the opportunity to rub elbows with people of influence and power. If a networking opportunity presents itself, jump at the opportunity — you may not have the chance again for a year.
Eclipse motto: Attitudes are contagious, so make yours worth catching.
Scorpio (21 October — 20 November)
Your ruling planet, Mars, moves into Leo this week, and the area of your chart that rules professional success, Scorpio. Ambition is your greatest ally right now, and you feel inspired to take the next step in your professional development. Of course, there is also the potential for conflict when Mars is in play. So, you would do well to keep your temper under control at work in order to avoid unnecessary corrective action. This week’s total eclipse hits your sector of long distance travel and higher education. Those born under the sign of the scorpion can expect the next several weeks to be filled with thoughts, discussions, and action related to learning something new or travelling.
Eclipse motto: Life is a buffet, and most people are starving to death.
Sagittarius (21 November — 20 December)
Sagittarius is always up for an adventure, and this week provides you with the opportunity to do just that. Mars in Leo allows you to lead the pack on day trips, adventures around town, and in exploring new areas. While you typically do well exploring alone, you are due to have a friend tag along. Just remember to go at the comfortable pace of others, or you may find your companion is no longer interested in doing things with you. Of course, that may be to your benefit. This week’s eclipse strikes your house of debt, which may cause a series of unexpected expenses to pop up out of nowhere. Make sure you have emergency money put aside till the energy clears in three weeks.
Eclipse motto: Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery.
Capricorn (21 December — 20 January)
The world doesn’t often see you as cuddly, Capricorn, but Mars ignites a flame of passion within you right now that can be seen for miles. Your sexual side is surfacing, and you can’t help but look upon others with desire. As you fan the flames of your most sensual desires, others will be drawn to you without knowing why. This is enhanced by the eclipse in your house of interpersonal relationships. For Capricorns currently in relationships, this week promises to return the spark that may have faded. Capricorns who are single should look at this week as the perfect storm for finding and keeping love. No matter how it manifests for you, expect your love life to soar.
Eclipse motto: Love always finds a way.
Aquarius (21 January — 20 February)
A combative week ahead is promised, Aquarius. Right now you seem to butt heads with everyone around you. This is because you currently have little patience for what you believe is incompetence, and you have no trouble telling others off. On a positive note, it will be impossible for you to sweep any conflicts under the rug. You want to get the heart of the problem, and deal with it immediately. This week’s eclipse strikes your house of health and wellbeing, which can bring an unexpected change to your physical stamina, as well as your immune system. Be alert to situations where you could expose yourself to germs and watch your step, especially on Tuesday, 2 June.
Eclipse motto: When it’s raining, let it rain.
Pisces (21 February — 20 March)
You are focused and detail orientated this week, Pisces, and there isn’t anything you can’t seem to accomplish. In fact, you may find yourself in awe of how productive you’ve been. Expect the opportunity to help others take charge of responsibilities in their life, but do your best not to judge those who cannot keep up. As the total eclipse forms on Tuesday, 2 July 2019 you can expect an unexpected change to your love life. A last minute date is possible midweek, and you could easily spend the weekend on a romantic getaway. This is emphasized as Venus moves into the most romantic house in heavens. You easily go with the flow, just make sure you don’t miss the opportunity because you are too busy attending to mundane responsibilities.
Eclipse motto: Open hearts are the best open doors.
