NEW Weekly Astrology Horoscope Forecast July 18 to 24, 2022. Mercury in Leo. Sun in Leo. Chiron stations Retrograde.

Mercury and the Sun were in conjunction in Cancer last week. This week, Mercury and the Sun are both in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn on Monday and Tuesday.

Mercury in Cancer, heading forward in the zodiac faster than the Sun, is opposite Pluto on July 18, 2022 at 3:00 am ET. Soon following, the Sun in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn on July 19, 2022 at 9:38 pm ET.

The beginning of the week could be challenging and stressful, mentally and emotionally so taking time to yourself to decompress and relax to bring calm is recommended. Meditation can help clear your mind and body of toxic thoughts and feelings, and reduce anxiety.

The Sun is the light and Pluto is the darkness indicating an obvious contrast now.

Where you intuitively feel like something just isn’t right, trust yourself to inquire further. Your mind, body and soul will give you the signs you need to discover what’s true. The truth will set you free.

Messages, news and information that starts off the week can demonstrate conflicting points of view that could feel uncomfortable, even destructive. People could say things as if they don’t care about the consequences. Opposite opinions can lead to excessively strong emotional reactions.

Messages, news and information that starts off the week can demonstrate conflicting points of view that could feel uncomfortable, even destructive. People could say things as if they don’t care about the consequences. Opposite opinions can lead to excessively strong emotional reactions.

If there is excessive stress this week, it’s recommended to do things that change your mind toward rest and relaxation. Sometimes you need to get rid of toxic experiences so you can take care of yourself and what matters most in your personal life. On the other hand laziness could get strong reactions from those that are in power positions. When making decisions about career matters, be sure you aren’t saying anything or reacting in ways that sabotage yourself.

Issues between work and home are likely with bosses and leadership issues in focus.

Those in positions of authority, especially those that abuse their power, may send messages and signals that are in direct opposition to the opinions, thoughts and feelings people want in their personal lives.

The comfort of home and taking care of family life with a sense of security is what people want now and is a priority for more people, in contrast to the conflicting, divisive and destructive decisions authority figures are imposing on people’s lives. Choices made now can be life-changing.

What is said and talked about now can open a lot of people’s eyes and wake people up to the truth of what’s really going on in the bigger picture of the world behind the scenes, Pluto rules the underworld after all. A bright light shining on how destructive the plutocratic and political power-hungry types in leadership positions are in manipulating and controlling people’s everyday lives from the top of the pyramid can wake people up to see how deep the rabbit hole really goes with corruption. Information that comes out about the political/business world this week could be shocking. Some of the things those in positions of authority say this week can infuriate a lot of people and test people’s calm.

What is said now can be the opposite to what is actually the truth now. Trickery is possible especially around concerns of safety, security and power. Your intuition will be able to notice contradictions more easily now.

Pluto also rules death, disease and poison so we can expect more news and discussion ramping up in this regard.

Business, banking or political decisions could be in the news regarding mortgage rates and the real estate market. Insider trading by big-wigs is worth investigating. The gas and oil industry is also likely to be in the news.

If you have concerns about your body due to smoking or ingesting other destructive substances, alcohol or foods, this would be a good time to quit and have a change of mind about the situation, especially if you’re pregnant. Learning more about self care and quitting bad habits is recommended now. Being more careful and concerned about what you put in your body is highly suggested.

We’re also likely to hear more talk about pregnancy, conception, contraception and abortions this week where well known famous people or politicians could voice their opinions on this topic creating conflicting views.


Mercury enters Leo on July 19, 2022 8:35 am ET and will be here for just a couple of weeks until August 4th. This is when news, talk and conversations tend to get more dramatic. What people say and how people express themselves can get a lot of attention and people can put on a show of demonstration to get their point across. People also tend to have more creative perspectives at this time, and we could see art and artists that send bold messages during this period. What leaders and celebrities say can be especially in the spotlight now. We can expect what is happening in the realm of social media to influence a lot of people’s conversations.

Chiron stations Retrograde again on July 19, 2022 11:21 am ET. Chiron has been in Aries since early 2019 and has been direct and retrograde a number of times. Now, Chiron is hovering around the midpoint of Aries. The past few years has brought a lot of attention to personal wounds associated to identity and we see a lot of people are seeking to find the truth of themselves. Chiron Retrograde in Aries internalizes and asks, “After all I’ve been through, who am I really?” Personal self healing for each person is unique to each of our circumstances, but the larger theme is that each of us have had our egos scarred in the past in some way, and now is the time to go within to ease the pain and find our personal power. Being true to ourselves and being who we are on our own terms, rather than trying to become what others think we should be, is an important part of the healing process.

As we continue through 2022, people are likely to work on becoming more self-actualized, seeking their own identity and perception of themselves rather than allowing external opinions or validation from others to define whom oneself really is. Obstacles in the way of people living on their own terms will become highly contentious where people feel “enough is enough.”

Leaders will also want to do things on their own terms which can create conflict with their responsibility to the people. The way leaders behave and present themselves is likely to be under more scrutiny and the pressure to fix their personal issues and errors could be heightened, causing more to resign or hide away to escape external demands and pressure.


The Sun enters Leo on July 22, 2022 4:07 pm ET following Mercury which entered on the 19th.

Who people demonstrate themselves to be through their self-expression is more notable during this period. This is a time to improve your unique talents that give you a positive sense of self esteem. Leaders that are friendly and have a healthy self-confidence that guides them to teach and help others to be their best are the ones that people will admire and gravitate toward. However, the highly egotistical leaders that are dominating could show their overly-authoritative side. People are likely to see-through such leaders when they behave in overly dramatic ways. Some will put on a show, and it will be easy to tell when they’re not being authentic. Celebrities may market their brands more during this period with big presentations that get attention. The truth of who people are will be revealed by their personalities. Those of a higher social status, with big money, are likely to show off. Kings, Queens and leaders will be in the spotlight.

And don’t forget, “All the world is a stage.”

Whenever Mercury and the Sun meet and then Mercury enters a new sign first, you know Mercury will be going Retrograde in about 6-7 weeks. Mercury will go Retrograde in Libra September 9, 2022 putting a lot of attention on issues in relationships, money and all things associated to balance and justice. Biased information will be a significant focus as we reach the end of the summer.

Mercury in Leo connects with Jupiter in Aries July 23, 2022 at 1:52 pm ET. This is a good time to think about what you enjoy about life to put you in a positive frame of mind. What’s happening with the travel industry is likely to get more talk and it could be a good time to get away so you can enjoy good things in life. Religious and spiritual thoughts and beliefs coupled with theatrical acts are worth exploring. Burning incense like frankincense can elevate your mind and spirit. Expression, talents, worldviews or religious beliefs are highlights of personal identity now. We could hear big news or an announcement this weekend that activates people to assert what they believe. Take note of your big ideas now and explore your options.
