Horoscopes June 25–30: Some Days of Big Feelings are Coming

It's a week to quit pushing and let things unfold naturally, says astrologer Emma Vidgen. Read your weekly horoscopes now.

The chill continues this week as Cancer season delivers some golden moments for reflection, vulnerability and healing. After a bumpy entree on Monday (blame the moon/Pluto), things feel decidedly more mellow.

Mid-week, la Luna’s transit through Pisces signals a time to dive deep into conversation, art, music, or just dive under the covers. With both luminaries in emotionally charged signs, there’s never been a better time to feel all the feelings. With a very helpful trine from Mercury in the mix, phoning a friend or asking for help will be healing.

In other news, Mars and Venus get their flirt on most of the week, which could spell fireworks, or even an olive branch from someone you least expect. Friday looks good for tuning out with Greys Anatomy re-runs or a big glass of Sangiovese – or better yet both. Eat, drink and be cosy.

Remember to always read for your rising sign, rather than your sun sign to get the most accurate read. Cast your chart at theastrologyofyou.com to learn your sign.

Aries and Aries rising

Cancer season continues to deliver a masterclass in showing your softer side. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to experiment with responding rather than initiating. Watch what happens when you wait to see what presents itself to you – feelings, opportunities, invitations. And when an ongoing burden feels especially heavy (around Thursday AEST and GMT), don’t be afraid to lean on family, especially parents, for support.

Taurus and Taurus rising

A troubled friend (or a friend who’s trouble, as the case may be) might need a lifeline this week. On the flip side, they could be the lifeline you need to navigate a whole lotta feelings. Whatever you do, don’t sit on the emotions. Be brave and tell them what’s going on in your heart. You might feel uncomfortable in the moment but ultimately, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

Gemini and Gemini rising

Deep breath! It’s time to address a tricky conversation – possibly salary-related – mid-week as the moon and Mercury give you the nudge you need. Addressing an ongoing situation that’s felt like a huge burden, especially at work, will be fruitful. Brace yourself as the person you expect to show up as an opponent or at the very least, someone to be regarded with suspicion, backs you up.

Enough about me, let’s talk about me! And my feelings! With big water energy turning up the vibe, it’s a mighty fine week for crabs to fess up with what’s going on in their hearts and minds. A tricky conversation involving travel, learning or philosophical differences could be the intense exchange you need to have mid-week. Shake it off over the weekend when Venus and Mars set the scene for little low-key hijinks with good mates.

Leo and Leo rising

Proceed with caution early in the week when an explosive confession from someone within your immediate vicinity (partner, desk buddy, work wife) could set the week off on a wobbly foot. There’s time to recover and even maybe make an ally out of someone you wouldn’t usually consider a supporter before the week is out. You can be gracious without splitting a best friend charm.

Virgo and Virgo rising

There’s a sparky window mid-week (Thursday AEST, Wednesday GMT) to play social conduit as Venus imbues you with the gift of the gab. Making an effort to extend your network, put yourself out there socially or call on acquaintances to help with an ongoing roadblock could prove incredibly useful. You won’t get help without asking so, be brave and say, “Hi!”.

Libra and Libra rising

It may be flat-shoe season, but you’re all about the hustle this week. With three planets igniting up your career sector, there’s opportunity and windfalls to be had…if you play your cards right. Let lunar energy be your guiding light and focus on responding, rather than trying to initiate or take control of negotiations. Let things unfold naturally and don’t be afraid to take your time mulling over what will nourish and nurture your long-term ambitions.

Scorpio and Scorpio rising

A cool head and a neat little sidestep will serve you well early in the week when the moon and Pluto set the scene for drama at home and/or with family. Of course, you can give as good as you get, but ultimately, is it worth the fallout? Mid-week, the skies look lush for some big creative dreaming. Channel the feelings into artistic pursuits to get the most out of the mood, then try to take off with your person over the weekend when Mars and Venus get frisky.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius rising

It’s time to address the elephant in the room, or more specifically at home (like, literally in your house… or within your family unit). As Cancer season greases the wheels for empathetic communication, spitting it out and saying how you feel about an ongoing sore point is the wisest course of action. Think of it less as having an axe to grind and more like a leaky tap that needs fixing. No one wants to get the shifter out and tighten the washer (metaphorically speaking), but you’ll feel so much better once the tap stops dripping.

Capricorn and Capricorn rising

The rewards of sharing your feelings, thoughts and personal space this week are major as Cancer season continues to remind you, “You don’t have to do/be/carry it all alone”. Affection, intimacy and understanding will be reciprocated… if you’re prepared to let your guard down. Before you panic, rest assured this is not a group activity. But sharing how you’re doing with a longer-term struggle will be met with compassion and care.

Aquarius and Aquarius rising

It’s all about the detail this week as Cancer season highlights the need to take better care of yourself. Pay attention to situations that highlight how you can manage your time, calendar or health in a more nurturing way. Meanwhile, you’re gifted a golden moment to address an ongoing (icky) situation related to cash around Thursday/Friday (all time zones). With empathy and compassion at an all-time high, the news will be received as well as it can be given the circumstances.

Pisces and Pisces rising

The creative surge continues this week with Mercury, Venus and the Sun igniting a rush of optimism, playfulness and gratitude. Clear the decks mid-week to make the most of the juicy vibes, and invest time in whatever creative passion or outlet brings you back to yourself and makes you feel refreshed. Let familiar rituals soothe the heaviness of recent times, and immerse yourself in people, places and experiences that (re)fill your cup.
