Your horoscopes for the week 16 July to 22 July, 2018
Aries – March 21 to April 20
Mars (your ruling planet) is retrograde until August 27. So a cherished hope, dream or wish has been (temporarily) delayed. And the more you try to assert your authority and independence with others, the more stressful and frustrating things will be. Just remember – you can’t be the boss all of the time. Calm down and recalibrate Rams! If you are more consultative, then the week will run much more smoothly. The weekend is a wonderful time to fraternise with family and friends.
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
With Mars reversing through your career zone, it will be difficult to get the ducks all lined up at work this week. But, if you are patient and persistent (which are your Taurean strengths) then you’ll make slow but steady progress. Being extra cooperative with family and friends could also lead to long-term rewards. On the weekend you’re in the mood for gourmet food, fun, flirting, shopping and socialising as you channel your inner hedonist. Don’t overdo it though!
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
Communication looks strained, especially later in the week. The more inconsistent you are, the more likely you’ll be drawn into an argument, either in person or online. And don’t allow someone to manipulate you, as they try to persuade you to do something against your better judgment. Have the common sense (which is actually not so common) to stand your ground and say no. The weekend is a wonderful time to enjoy the company of your favourite four-legged friend.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Is a financial dream turning into a nightmare? Retrograde Mars requires you to backtrack through your paperwork, review your budget, consolidate funds and plug the cash flow drain. Attached Crabs … it’s a wonderful week to build bridges as you work through relationship problems in a positive and sensitive way. Singles … don’t waste your precious time on a part-time partner. Look for a lover who is ready to commit to a long-term union. They will be well worth the wait.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
It’s a week for careful contemplation as you review the future of a marriage, romantic relationship, close friendship, business partnership or joint venture. If you’re not sure which way to go, then let your trusty intuition be your guide. And make sure you steer the union in a direction that is aligned with your core values, cherished dreams and true destiny. The weekend is a terrific time to play Domestic Goddess as you entertain family and friends at home with a fabulous feast.
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Mars is still reversing through your wellbeing zone. So it’s time to review your health and fitness; revise your diet and exercise routine; and then make appropriate adjustments and improvements. Plus, with Venus sashaying through your sign, take a close look at the image you are presenting to the world. If you don’t like it, then change it in practical and creative ways. Be inspired by German writer Goethe (who was a Virgo) “As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”
Libra – September 24 to October 23
You’re keen to pursue creative, humanitarian or spiritual pursuits. You’ll seek out the wise counsel of a trusted mentor or play that role yourself to someone who is looking for judicious guidance. Whatever you choose to do, lift your thinking from mundane daily concerns to more lofty and inspirational realms. Music, writing, painting, meditation and helping others are also favoured. You’ll find the more compassionate and caring you are, the luckier and happier you’ll be.
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
It’s time for sensitive Scorpios to be clever, creative and communicative at work. But (courtesy of retrograde Mars) it’s definitely not a good week to host a jolly family reunion or bring up sensitive childhood issues. On the weekend, Venus and Jupiter encourage you to let go of the past and stop worrying about the future. Focus on enjoying the here and now! Be inspired by music great Carlos Santana (who was born on July 20) “The present is where everything begins.”
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
Jupiter links up with Venus, so make sure you capitalise on the good luck that is heading in your direction. Don’t be so distracted that you fail to recognise a fabulous opportunity when it comes along. Work activities are favoured, as you flex your mind and muscles in exciting new ways. Attached Archers – the weekend is a wonderful time to escape on a romantic rendezvous! Singles … love and work are linked as you view a colleague, client or customer in a sexy new light.
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
With Saturn in Capricorn and Mars reversing through your self-esteem zone, you’re likely to slip into worry-wart mode. But stressing about problems won’t help. Instead, roll your sleeves up, put your head down, and just get on with the tasks at hand. And – if you make a mistake – then pick yourself up, dust yourself down, and start all over again. Be inspired by birthday great, entrepreneur Richard Branson “Don’t be embarrassed by your failures. Learn from them and start again.”
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
Adventurous Aquarians prefer to improvise but the more practical and organised you are this week, then the better the results will be. With Mars reversing through your sign, you’re feeling frustrated and are even more impulsive than usual. You’re also more clumsy and accident-prone, so slow down and take extra care. Plus, if you take the time to nurture friendships and network with colleagues, then you’ll reap the rewards in the long-run. Patience is the key.
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
This week (courtesy of retrograde Mars) you’re inclined to question your inner motivations. Which can be confronting. But a soulful examination of your interior life will give you the self-knowledge and confidence to let your quintessential Piscean nature shine. With Venus visiting your relationship zone, cooperation is the secret to positive partnerships at the moment. And Jupiter also encourages you to extend your peer group to include an inspiring international new crowd.
