Our final week of July pulls us deeper under the influence of Leo’s stars with Mercury moving into Leo on the 27th, where the Sun and Mars have already made their mark. There’s a prevailing sense that anything can happen this week. And if that anything is big, blessed, and beautiful? Then so be it.
Of course, Mars is bound toward Virgo territory on the 29th, but not before making an opposition to Jupiter in Aquarius the preceding day. An opposition between the willpower of the individual and the collective aim feels especially poignant following last week’s full moon in Aquarius, an echo of its lessons. Venus in Virgo makes an inconjunct aspect to Saturn in Aquarius on the 29th, calling us to examine when acts of services are acts of love and when their purpose is to control the emotions of others — an impossible feat no matter how often we attempt it. If something big and beautiful were to happen, surely it would happen when our hands were open and our fists unclenched? Meanwhile, the quarter moon in Taurus encourages us not only to open our hands, but also to learn to stay still, and receive the fruits of our labours.
On the first of August, the Sun and Mercury meet in the sky and the signs we’ve been waiting for are sure to appear. But, a sign’s only as good as its reader. After all, “no one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong.” You’ve got to find your light yourself.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
The stakes are high as Japanese governing party members vote Wednesday for four candidates seeking to replace Yoshihide Suga as prime minister. The next leader must address a pandemic-battered economy, a newly empowered military operating in a dangerous neighborhood, crucial ties with an inward-focused ally, Washington, and tense security standoffs with an emboldened China and its ally North Korea. For the long-governing Liberal Democratic Party that often chooses its leaders in backroom negotiations, this election promises to be wide open.
Nuclear-armed North Korea fired what appeared to be a short-range missile into the sea on Tuesday, the South's military said, as Pyongyang's UN ambassador insisted it had an undeniable right to test its weapons.
Night three of the blind auditions on The Voice Monday night ended with 30-year-old contestant Holly Forbes, who stunned with her rendition of Elton John's "Rocketman" and, ultimately, became one of this season's four-chair turns. Forbes's performance also caused Ariana Grande to use her one and only block on John Legend, who had used his block against her, and Legend congratulated the new coach by saying, "You did it!" Forbes, who is a mother of two, as well as a caregiver for patients with autism, began having seizures at the age of 11 and, subsequently, lost her hair due to the medication. "For a kid, it's not easy being bald. At that time, I would always just listen to music on repeat in my room, singing, and it just kind of boosted my confidence," shared Forbes. However, on Monday, Holly didn't just move viewers with her backstory, she also moved them with her performance. "That was so incredibly moving," said Grande, "I am, like, choked up beyond. Every single second of it was so emotionally charged. I respect and admire and would love to work with you. Oh, thank you. And I'm the last one to use my block, and I made it by a millisecond, and I'm so happy!" While Blake Shelton made a valiant effort to persuade Forbes to join Team Blake, when he argued against the fact that Forbes's daughter Violet is a huge Ariana Grande fan, by saying, "In reference to your, I'm certain, beautiful daughter that loves Ariana, I'll just remind you that some children love too much sugar, or some kids may like playing with fire. You know, it's not necessarily the best thing," with Legend out of the running, it'll most likely come down to Team Kelly Clarkson or Team Ariana. Unfortunately, The Voice left us on a cliffhanger, and we won't find out until Tuesday.
