Your horoscope for July 14 to 20, 2011
Finish lines, deadlines, increasing pressure, limitations. The call for justice. Patience and leeway running short. Resources, time, and excuses running out. These have been building all week and on all levels.
Thursday evening delivers a full moon in Capricorn. When the moon reaches fullness in the reality-check sign, life becomes serious—and often sobering—business. We feel the weight of our responsibilities and debts, and can feel guilt for not doing what we think we should—or for not doing what others expect of us. We can face harsh consequences and belt tightening; we reach our emotional limits too.
It may not be the most pleasant way to accomplish the task, but sometimes push comes to shove is necessary to get things moving in the appropriate direction. On the positive, this week’s right time, right place stars will raise your ambition to accomplish something of importance. First steps can be the most difficult, of course.
Eris, the goddess of discord, is activated by the full moon. As a trouble maker, she incites conflict, controversy, strife, and even war. As the golden apple goddess, she rewards ethical and earnest intention. On Monday, Eris turns retrograde and in so doing, brightens clarity so that we may better see our right course of action.

March 21 - April 20
How much should you take on and what can you let go of? The Capricorn full moon shines a starker light on your limits and limitations. Have personal priorities and needs taken a back seat as of late? Eris, Ceres, and Uranus in Aries set you on a new track. You’ll gain better traction once the weekend arrives.
April 21 - May 20
The influence of Eris on Thursday’s full moon in Capricorn can throw something unexpected into the mix. This can be in regards to actual circumstances (such as travel, plans, communications, legal matters, expectations, or bids) and also the bigger-picture agenda. It may take you longer to get to your destination, but you will get to where you need to be.
May 21 - June 21
If it isn’t coming along at a productive or workable level, stand back and take a time-out. A change of pace can do the trick. The end of the week brings you to a finish line and the start of so much more. A contract, an official agreement, or out-of-the box solution take it to a whole new level.
June 22 - July 22
Thursday’s full moon can get you out from underneath that rock, perhaps unexpectedly so. If disappointment or a letdown occurs, realize there are more avenues to explore and better options worth pursuing. You have more going for you than you may realize in the immediacy of the moment. Once in motion or forced into action, you’ll make swift progress.
July 23 - August 22
You may find yourself forced to address something you have overlooked or avoided, but once it is dealt with, it’s out of the way and you’ll be off to the races. From Friday forward, the stars set a pleasant backdrop for vacationing and social and romantic pleasures. There’s no need to plan or project too far forward. Stay present in the moment.
August 23 - September 22
It may be necessary for you to put more serious thought toward your priorities and future. It may be time to set better boundaries in place or to define your needs in no uncertain terms. In these regards, Thursday’s full-moon prompt can prove quite productive. Personally and professionally, you are on the brink of a significant breakthrough.
September 23 - October 23
Important decisions can weigh on you now, especially regarding family matters, real estate, or other financial priorities. Thursday’s full moon in Capricorn could put you under added pressure or strain, but once you meet your obligations or address what’s necessary, you can place pleasure and play at the top of your list. The weekend is ideal for socializing and personal pampering.
October 24 - November 22
As Thursday’s full moon energizes, an unexpected extra could divert or distract you. Tackle it immediately and it will be quickly out of your way. Over this next week, keep your comfort zone in mind. Financially, emotionally, and chronologically, allow extra margins so you can get to where you need and want to go.
November 23 - December 21
If you feel reluctance or hesitation, look to the Capricorn full moon to provide the impetus or extra push you need. Once in motion, you can expect to move it along quickly and well. As the weekend comes and goes, you should find you can easily convey the message, connect the dots, and gain the attention and satisfaction you seek.
December 22 - January 20
Pit yourself against a challenge and stretch yourself beyond your usual. You should be especially pleased with the results. Thursday’s full moon loans you added motivation. If you feel forced beyond reasonable boundaries or suddenly let loose, know that once the dust settles, you’ll find yourself on a better equilibrium.
January 21 - February 19
Once past the full moon, you’ll find that a wait or uncertainty is surpassed, and that circumstances and relationships pick up plenty more steam. Friday onward, you should find solutions, answers, and plans fall into place quite readily. Watch for your energy, enthusiasm, social life, and creativity to perk right up. Take it as it comes.
February 20 - March 20
A conclusion reached or endpoint is really your starting threshold. As the weekend arrives, watch for a new momentum to build. While it’s good to have a game plan, rely on spontaneity as your first option. Follow the natural course as it colours itself in for you. The stars keep the pace lively, yet relaxed.
