Your horoscopes for the week 25 July – 31 July, 2016
Aries – March 21 to April 20
The stars favour friendships and hobbies, so it’s a wonderful week to indulge in pleasurable leisure activities with like-minded mates. Creativity and innovation are highlighted [especially on Wednesday] when you express your artistic side or have an inspiring lightbulb moment. But sharp words or cutting comments could lead to a feisty and fiery Friday, unless you strive to be much more diplomatic. On the weekend, being pushy is out, and being persuasive is in.
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
Avoid getting stuck in a boring old rut Bulls – no matter how ‘comfortable’ it is. This week’s sparky planetary patterns encourage you shake things up, especially on the home front. Plus, when it comes to friendships, sporting activities, hobbies or creative projects, are you being way too tentative? Mercury and Jupiter encourage you to balance being prepared with being more spontaneous. So shift out of stubborn mode, put on your adaptability hat, and expect the unexpected!
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
Tried and tested methods won’t work this week Twins. You need to look at a tricky long-term problem with completely fresh eyes. Then you’ll solve the puzzle and taste success. Emotions and energy levels will fluctuate on Friday so pace yourself. When it comes to a close relationship it may seem as if Saturn is holding you back, which can be frustrating. But the Taskmaster planet is actually teaching you to be much more patient, which will serve you well in the future.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Early in the week a friend, colleague or loved one requires your help but avoid being bossy and taking over. Old solutions won’t help – you need to keep up-to-date with new ways of solving problems. Later in the week, someone makes a cutting comment that annoys you. Resist the urge to retaliate. Instead, do your best to keep your Crab composure. As birthday great Carl Jung reminds us “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
Leo – July 24 to August 23
You’ll tend to go to extremes this week Lions, as the planets press your ‘Let’s overdo everything’ button. [So your motto for the moment is from uber-Leo birthday great Mick Jagger “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.”] But resist the temptation to be a right royal bossy-boots, especially when you don’t get your way. And – if you don’t pull your weight with domestic chores– then expect some feisty fireworks from disgruntled housemates or family members.
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Privacy and self-reflection are paramount early in the week, when your motto comes from birthday great Kate Bush “There’s an awful lot you learn about yourself when you’re alone.” The pace picks up on Wednesday, as Uranus stimulates your curiosity and sharpens your research skills. Your multi-tasking talents will be on show on the weekend, when you juggle jobs and take care of business all over the place. Mercury and Jupiter also give you a welcome confidence boost.
Libra – September 24 to October 23
One-on-one relationships and group activities will be extra lively this week Libra, as people enjoy debating a wide range of views and calm cooperation goes out the window. Life and love certainly won’t be boring! But it’s not a good time to hit the shops, as you’re inclined to spontaneous spending sprees. If you can separate your wants from your needs, then it will shorten your shopping list and help you avoid making hasty money moves that you later regret.
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
Is a work or personal matter going pear-shaped? Don’t point the finger at others! With Mars in your sign, perhaps you have no-one to blame but yourself? If you are proactive about solving the problem, then you’ll make real progress. But – if you sulk or blame others – then you’re in for a troublesome week. Strong feelings could re-surface on Friday, when someone pushes your buttons. Calm down, otherwise you run the risk of turning a minor matter into a grand obsession.
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
Marvellous mid-week Mercury aspects favour education, travel and social networking as you connect with friends from faraway shores. Who knows where your international contacts may lead? But can you be extra diplomatic and oh-so discreet? Later in the week you’ll be told something in strict confidence, so make sure you keep it to yourself. Blurting out secrets is a recipe for family or friendship friction, so resist the urge to divulge and zip your lip instead.
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
Don’t worry about a family situation, as changes are brewing on the home front which could lead to more personal freedom. But avoid being too brisk and brusque with others on Friday, when your business side goes into overdrive. People respect your professional approach but they also appreciate the personal touch. On the weekend, Mercury joins Jupiter in your international zone so foreign business, travel, study and friendships are all favoured over the next few weeks.
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
If you are creative and original in the way you post on social media mid-week, then you’ll receive a surprisingly positive response. It’s also time to get circulating within your local community and meet some fresh new faces. But, if you are rash and reckless with relationships [or make controversial comments] on Friday or Saturday, then you could find yourself with a fractious friend or livid lover on your hands. So think things through carefully before you speak!
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
If you’re searching for smart ways to boost cash flow, don’t try to re-invent the wheel! Look to successful colleagues, mentors or role-models for updated information and novel new ideas. And, if you have a problem that’s bothering you, let your intuition be your guide. Wisdom for the week is from Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung [born on July 26, 1875] “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.”
