Aries

The Astrologer Says:

There could be testy conversations about why you can’t just go off and do your own thing all the time, Aries. Yeah, you’re a badass on your own, but what about your crew that shares similar hopes and aspirations as you do? Flip the script. Use your creativity, passion, and love of the collective to give voice to something that leads to tangible action where everyone feels heard and included in the fun.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You can’t just run off and do your own thing without telling your homies. Suddenly it’s 2 a.m. and you decided to venture off with a rando at a bar without telling your friends. Get it together and remember how important it is to tell your friends what you’re up to. And that includes your creative endeavors. It’s a group effort. Just like a Kanye West album.

Leo

The Astrologer Says:

For once, it’s definitely not you, Leo. If you’re noticing that people around you are being unusually snippy, try not to engage your mouth to respond unless you’re going to be giving constructive criticism that leads to action benefiting everyone involved. If relating to people gets too hectic, just call it a day and head home to relax. There’s no need to expend energy on people who aren’t able to listen.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

It ain’t your fault… for once. Normally you’re the one with the big mouth calling people out and being wrong, but for once, your friend got out of pocket. They take their time with your hot-headed ass, so do the same with them. If not, just holla at them the next day after the hangover has worn off.

Sagittarius

The Astrologer Says:

Since you’re always running your mouth anyway, Sadge, you might as well put it to good use. This week, use your love of storytelling to educate and inspire those around you into taking action that benefits the local hood. You know how to stir passion in people’s hearts and minds, so there’s no better time than the present to let those arrows of fiery truth light a fire under people’s behinds. There are minds to ignite, Centaur. Let’s go!

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re always bullshitting to bae about “working late” when you were doing who knows what with you know who. Maybe you should use those stories for good instead of lying. Go volunteer with the youths or something and tell them about your “struggle” to inspire them to be something other than rappers.

Taurus

The Astrologer Says:

While social interaction may feel like a breeze to you this week, watch out for those conversations that hit a little close to home. All it takes is one “Your Mama” joke for fists start flying, Taurus, so try to sidestep discussions that hurt your pride and make you feel like you have to publicly defend your (or Your Mama’s) honor. Don’t take the bait. Instead, put your passionate words into action in a way that speaks for itself.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re social AF this week, but beware. All the Tinder messages are flowing in, your WhatsApp game has been poppin’, but as all that social energy flows you’re bound to say something wrong. Don’t tell your homie’s girlfriend that she has no edges. Even if it’s a joke.

Virgo

The Astrologer Says:

Keeping your bright ideas to yourself may be tempting this week, Virgo, but I urge you not to. Instead, try to figure out ways to get your ideas out of your head and into the material world by putting them to work and service. Chances are high that your practical innovation is exactly what’s needed to make sense of the chaos. Don’t burn out by doing everything alone. Enroll some of your friends or co-workers to help you out. No one gets to know how brilliant you are if you don’t share, Virgo. Don’t be stingy.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’ve got all the dope ideas, but you always wanna keep them to yourself. Don’t this time around. Spread the knowledge and you could get all the help you need. If you try to handle it yourself, you’ll be burned and dinner will be your first meal of the day because you’re so busy.

Capricorn

The Astrologer Says:

Your head is single-minded in its pursuit for security and stability this week, Capricorn. The world looks like it’s going crazy, and at the end of the day, your main concern is surviving and prospering even in uncertain times. That’s fine and dandy, Cap, but don’t do this kind of brainstorming alone. Invite like-minded people onboard to collaborate and see your safety net and support multiply instantly.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Again… TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK. You don’t get paid five salaries, so why are you doing five peoples’ jobs? Exactly. Get the squad to help and get ready to boss up.

Gemini

The Astrologer Says:

Sometimes it’s difficult to stay grounded when there’s so much information circulating around you, Gemini. While it’s important to stay fired up and inspired to learn new things as you witness how the world unfolds around you, don’t be a bystander or let your deepening education go to waste. Be practical about what you learn, keeping an open mind to how you can use it to build your confidence and your bank account at the same time. Hustle smarter, Gemini.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re in your bag and it’s hard to be humble. But cool it before you overshoot your shot. Yes, that’s possible. Just look at the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Learn when to chill and when to pop off.

Libra

The Astrologer Says:

Although you may be fixing to see some new gains in your career and finances, Libra, the impulse to enjoy yourself and leave the stress of work on the side is high. Bring your idea of fun and creativity to the table instead of sidelining it as frivolous. If you use your creativity to inspire others into action at work, you’ll enjoy the best of both words—and hopefully, see the longterm benefits in the form of clout and extra coins in the bank account.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Get yo’ money, Libra. Things are looking up for the first time in awhile and all your hard work is starting to pay off. Putting down the copious amount of sugary cocktails and hitting the gym in the morning is finally paying off, eh? Oh, and if you’ve been thinking about asking for a raise or a promotion… DO IT.

Aquarius

The Astrologer Says:

It’s good that you have some fire in your belly, Aquarius, but what good is it if you use it to scare away people who are on your side. Do yourself a favor and listen closely to what others are saying before springing into action. 2 minutes of diplomacy now will save you hours of headache later. A little brainstorming and planning now will set you up to make well thought out moves that benefit your work and career in the long run.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Be nice to people and you’ll be surprised at how much you can actually get done. Don’t talk back when your coworker tries to throw you under the bus in a meeting. Just catch ’em after the meeting, or take them out for drinks then stick them with the bill.

Cancer

The Astrologer Says:

You know that something in your life has to change but you’re still trying to figure out what is and if you have the energy to do it at all, Cancer. This isn’t the time to take sudden action anyways, so why not just sit with what makes you feel a sense of pride in yourself and your ideas as the litmus test for what will be staying and what will be changing when the time to act arrives? Timing is everything, Cancer, just roll with it.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You know you need to change your f*ckboy ways. Your bank account is looking terrible and so is your love life. Have you tried putting Tinder down and maybe volunteering in your ‘hood to meet some quality companions? How about inviting the next potential bae out for tea instead of drinks? Live your best Earl Gray life.

Scorpio

The Astrologer Says:

Step up to the microphone this week, Scorpio, as the heaven are compelling you to speak up for those old school values you keep close to your heart, the ones the originated at home for you. You’re in the flow as far as what you believe in and how you represent yourself, so why not put your words to work in a way that honors where you come from and also where you’re going.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

It’s time for you to use your words this week and not be scared to use your voice. More importantly, Drake dropped an album in honor of his fellow Scorpios, so go vibe out to that. Oh, and Side B is definitely better. Grab the good headphones.

Pisces

The Astrologer Says:

Although you may be feeling less inclined toward being around people this week (and who could blame you), don’t float too far of into the realm of make-believe just yet. Keep your mind focused on your to do lists and projects that focus on being of useful service in the long run. While your physical body may be feeling a bit tired, don’t slack and believe your mind and imagination are the one same page. Productive daydreaming is where it’s at, Pisces.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re tired, I get it. But make sure you get some rest because you gotta find a fire BBQ or pool party to be debaucherous at for July 4. Be safe, tho, and don’t do anything the BRUHstrologer wouldn’t do.
