Just when you think you’re getting used to something, the universe always throws an unexpected curveball in your direction. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs who will have the worst week of July 4 to July 10, you might feel somewhat jolted by what astrology has in store, so hang on tight!

On July 5, Mars—planet of power and ambition—will leave behind the competitive fire of Aries and enter the stubborn territory of Taurus. This shift can leave you feeling like you’re slamming on the brakes after you’ve been going 100 MPH, so give yourself time to come to a slow stop. Resist the temptation to rush, because impatience will get you nowhere right now! Instead, spend time thinking things through before taking action, because Mars in Taurus prefers to plan ahead, scope the situation out and take its time before making its first move. July 5 is also when chatty Mercury will enter nurturing and sentimental Cancer, inspiring you to trust your intuition and embrace empathy in your communications. However, with greater sensitivity comes the more intense mood swings, so remember—your emotions are not always a reflection of reality.

In fact, it may be difficult to keep your emotions in check once Mercury squares off with over-the-top Jupiter in Aries on July 9. While this level of passion can be incredibly inspiring, it’s important to remember to keep one foot on the ground at all times, just in case you’re about to get carried away. And a bit of advice—keep risky e-mails in your drafts for 24 hours before hitting send! As the sun in Cancer forms a sextile with innovative Uranus in Taurus on July 10, you may feel inspired to start a revolution, so start on the right foot.

If your sun sign and/or rising sign happens to fall under any of these zodiac signs, here’s why this week might feel overwhelming:

You might be feeling slow and exhausted as of this week, Gemini. Now that Mars—planet of passion and stamina—is entering your 12th house of spirituality and unseen energies, you might feel way more contemplative and dreamy than usual. And even though you might be enjoying taking some time for peace and introspection, you might feel frustrated that you’re not moving as fast as you’re used to. However, you’re not a machine that can be turned on and off; you’re a human being who ebbs and flows. If you’re low on energy, it’s simply a sign that you’re in need of some rest. And if anyone has an issue with you needing rest, that’s their problem, not yours!

This week might be a doozy, Leo. After all, you’re known for being confident and powerful, not for being reclusive and overly sensitive! On July 5, chatty Mercury will enter your mysterious and introspective 12th house, which could leave you feeling like canceling plans, putting your phone on airplane mode and insulating yourself from the outside world. If you’re in the mood to be introverted and maybe even give yourself the space to let out a good cry, you won’t regret it. You might have a chronic case of FOMO, but that doesn’t mean you should keep postponing plans with the most important person of all—yourself. If you need some alone time, give yourself alone time, Leo!

This week, you’re embracing some deep changes. You might even be starting some difficult, but necessary conversations, because there’s a lot you need to get off your chest. On July 5, rational Mercury will enter your eighth house of death and rebirth, forcing you to face the reality that not everything lasts forever. And you know what? That’s a good thing! If everything was permanent, wouldn’t that mean that nothing would ever change? Even though letting go might feel bittersweet, it doesn’t change the fact that something new is just starting to take form in your life, and that’s *really* exciting. Keep your eyes on the future, Sagittarius. After all, the past is just a story you tell yourself.
