July is winding down and August is ready for us, so let’s dive into your weekly horoscope for July 27-August 2, shall we? On Monday, Jupiter (planet of luck) aligns with Neptune (planet of illusion), which can highlight a dream and the desire to make things real. However, with both planets in reverse, this could be a time of visualizing the outcome rather than being more proactively involved.
On that same day, Venus (planet of love) angles toward beguiling Neptune, which might stir a yearning for someone or something that may be out of reach. Plus, the quarter moon in Scorpio could coincide with the need to make a key decision.
Mercury (planet of communication) makes three powerful aspects this week. On Thursday, it opposes Jupiter and aligns with Neptune, so there could be an eagerness to make a bold move. Just make expectations realistic.
On Saturday, lively Mercury opposes radical Pluto (planet of change), and there’s a chance of obsession when it comes to wanting a certain outcome. If a situation needs to be manipulated to get it, then we might just do it.
As you handle this obsession and learn to accept the outcome one way or another, consider getting yourself some apatite. Apatite is the healing stone of acceptance, and will help you ton embrace any circumstances to make the best of them.
How the Planets Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign This Week
This week’s quarter moon in Scorpio could see you reaching a milestone. You might be ready to decide whether to continue with a plan or project or call it a day. Quarter moons represent a gear change in which you can either step up and commit further or decide to reduce your involvement.
There is also plenty of nebulous energy this week, with the main aspect being jovial Jupiter’s positive tie with hazy Neptune. This can put the emphasis on your dreams and fantasies, which may be richer and more vivid than usual.
Talkative Mercury opposes optimistic Jupiter and forges a harmonious angle with Neptune on Thursday, so you may feel an instinctive nudge to imagine a positive outcome in an awkward situation.

When beguiling Neptune is involved, reality becomes more plastic, and your thoughts and feelings can impact your circumstances more than usual.
Are you working on a plan or project? Before you proceed, it might be wise to make sure that your family is on board. This week’s quarter moon in Scorpio encourages you to sit down together and get their ideas and opinions. If your idea needs a few changes before you proceed, this is the perfect time to make any adjustments.
You may get a desire to connect with someone you haven’t seen in a while, perhaps because they live far from you.

There may be a lot to think about this week, and unless you’re careful, you could get obsessed with a bold idea. This isn’t the time to jump on the bandwagon, though. You need to do some careful research first.
Do you have an idea that could help others? With philosophical Jupiter aligning with compassionate Neptune, you might be eager to get it up and running.

Finding this can be key to laying the groundwork and getting everything in order for a positive start.

Money matters may also come to the fore as messenger Mercury aligns with both jovial Jupiter and underworld Pluto this week. If you need money to invest in a project, don’t ask for too much at once.

The sun in your money zone is angling toward the moon in Scorpio and your leisure sector, so you may be eager to take a gamble. The question is if it will pay off. If you take a calculated risk, you might be okay, but if you’re in this just for the thrill, there are no guarantees.

As philosophical Jupiter aligns with caring Neptune, you may be drawn to spend more time with them and find this very heartwarming.
If you need to have a talk with someone, don’t overthink it because you could put yourself off by dwelling on the outcome. With messenger Mercury opposing potent Pluto, this could be a rather intense conversation, but if it gets to the heart of the matter, it could lead to positive change and a key decision.
The sun is newly in your sign, so you are in your element and eager get started on plans and projects that have been on the back burner for a while.

This lunar phase encourages you to gather your clan and get their opinion, because this could be crucial to the success of your idea.
When it comes to finances or a business idea, keep your feet on the ground.

You and another may have a lot in common, and the more you talk, the more you might want to make this a proper friendship. This can also be an opportunity to collaborate with someone on a creative idea that you both enjoy.
Finally, as chatty Mercury opposes potent Pluto on Saturday, you and another may not see eye to eye. Words have power, so be careful how you wield them.
A lively focus on your sector of far horizons could see you getting restless and feeling some wanderlust.
