Your horoscopes for the week 23 July to 29 July, 2018
Aries – March 21 to April 20
This week the Sun squares Uranus and opposes retrograde Mars (your ruler), Mercury goes retrograde (in fellow fire sign Leo) and there’s an unpredictable Lunar Eclipse. Which means hasty behaviour and hot-headed hubris could see reckless Rams jump from the frying pan straight into the fire! So cool down and recalibrate ASAP, before you say or do things that you later regret. The weekend is a wonderful time to revise and re-design a romantic, creative or sporting dream.
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
With retrograde Mars and the Lunar Eclipse activating your career zone, be very clear when you’re communicating with colleagues. What they say and what you hear may be two very different things. Keep them up-to-date with what you are thinking and doing, otherwise misunderstandings are likely. Plus Mercury starts reversing through your domestic zone. So it’s a good week to revamp your home as you declutter, redecorate, renovate or entertain unexpected guests.
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
Gung-ho Gemini – this week’s stars rev up your travel zones, so you’ve got a need for speed (which makes you more accident-prone than usual). Slow down! Less haste and more concentration will ensure you arrive at your various destinations safe and sound. With Mercury also reversing through your social networking zone, double-check all of your posts before you press send. Over the next three weeks, it will be oh-so easy to send the wrong message to the wrong person.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Mercury (planet of communication and commerce) starts reversing through your money zone. So avoid signing contracts and buying big ticket items (like a computer, car or home) until after August 19. Plus be extra careful how you pass on information. If you procrastinate, exaggerate or are imprecise, then you’ll be misunderstood. Friday night’s Lunar Eclipse magnifies your mood swings and heightens your emotional sensitivity. Clever Crabs will retreat and recalibrate.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
Prepare for a welcome burst of creativity, energy and enthusiasm, as the Sun transits into your sign. You’ll feel fiery, restless and rebellious (especially on Wednesday and Friday) but pace yourself or you’re likely to blow a fuse! Especially with Mercury reversing through your sign (from Thursday). Things won’t go according to plan and plenty of patience is required over the next three weeks until Mercury goes direct on August 19. So slow down and try to keep a sense of perspective.
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Have you been burning the candle at both ends? You’ve got a lot of extra responsibilities on your plate but try to put aside some special ‘me time’ this week. Solitude is certainly soul food for you at the moment. Mercury (your power planet) is retrograde from Thursday through until August 19. So be patient and look for crucial information that is hidden deep beneath the surface. Then you’ll understand the current complexities better, and the path ahead will be much clearer.
Libra – September 24 to October 23
With Mercury turning retrograde, pursuing your dreams won’t be a direct journey. Plenty of planning, patience and persistence are required before you taste the sweet fruits of success. Under the influence of Friday night’s Lunar Eclipse, a platonic relationship could take an unexpected romantic turn. Or a friend from the past could re-enter your life. Don’t be deceived by glossy outward appearances though. Look beneath the surface to evaluate a person’s true inner worth.
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
This week you may find it a struggle to juggle your personal and professional lives. On Thursday, Mercury starts reversing through your work zone. Plus retrograde Mars is already bringing up unresolved family issues. Friday night’s Lunar Eclipse falls in your home zone, so be on domestic drama alert as stress levels will be running high – and self-control running low. When it comes to a child, teenager or close friend, all is not as it appears. So factor that into your approach.
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
Retrograde Mars, retrograde Mercury and the Lunar Eclipse all activate your adventure and communication zones. So you’ll feel like travelling but a planned trip may be disrupted or delayed in some way. You’re also keen to connect with friends from near and far but be careful when it comes to social media. If you post a rushed message, then you’ll regret it later on. And, if you find yourself in the middle of a fiery exchange, resist the urge to be belligerent and argumentative.
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
When it comes to a close relationship or a financial matter, all is not as it seems. Life isn’t just about what you can see, study, discuss and dissect. There are many things that are hidden from the eye (or just plain mysterious). So take the time to look a lot deeper – then you’ll discover what’s really going on. Plus avoid signing important contracts over the next three weeks, as Mercury reverses through your joint finances and ‘money-from-others’ zone. Instead, be extra patient and wait.
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
This week it will be hard to work out if you’re coming or going. Retro Mars and retro Mercury see you hesitate about making an important decision. But Uranus and the Lunar Eclipse stimulate your impulsive and crazy-brave side, which could strike unexpectedly. Remember there’s a fine line between being rebellious and just plain reckless. If you’re too hasty, then you’ll find yourself in a heap of hot water! Finding some middle ground – between procrastination and impetuosity – is the key.
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Don’t expect a brilliant light-bulb moment anytime soon! If you’re struggling for ideas and direction, look within for some divine inspiration. Which will take time as you revisit, reminisce and re-imagine. Contemplation and meditation are also favoured. (As birthday great Carl Jung observed “Those who look outside dream; those who look inside awaken.” When it comes to a romantic or platonic relationship, are you wearing rose-coloured glasses and seeing what you want to see?
