YOUR FORECAST FOR THE MONTH OF JULY
Cancer June 22 to July 22
July is the perfect time for networking, updating your appearance or, if attached, making things more serious. Who to thank? Fiery Mars. Singles, too, should strike while the iron is hot. And while Cancerians often have a more give-and-take attitude towards relationships, this month finds you feeling feisty yet settled. Mutual trust extends to friendships too. Money, however, will concern you. Someone in your life could take a hard line on finances so gather support and be ready to make moves after Mars moves into your financial sector after the 22nd.
LEO July 23 to August 22
Sometimes we reach a moment that, in hindsight, is a turning point. Whether you realise its importance at the time depends on your intuition. There’s no avoiding a renewed outlook on life. More importantly, you undergo a change in your spiritual attitude. Old ideals might be traded for newer beliefs or your present commitment strengthens.
VIRGO August 23 to September 22
People think differently from one another. Stop trying to force people to fit your life or force yourself to fit in because it won’t work. The more you impose your will on others, the greater the resistance. The weeks ahead call for co-operation. Sure, there’ll be some stress but you need not cope alone. Team effort can be an amazing advantage.
LIBRA September 23 to October 22
Early July brings emotional warfare. You find yourself in conflict with others or, perhaps, just sweating the small stuff. If so, consider whether this situation is worth your energy. Conflicts often result in no winners or losers – only exhausted people and wasted time. Choose instead to walk away.
SCORPIO October 23 to November 21
One of life’s certainties is that not everyone has a clear conscience. This month could see devious activity behind the scenes when someone tries to nudge their agenda toward a fait accompli. Alternatively, with Venus in your sector of secrets, it could be you that’s hiding something private. Either way, be sensible when entrusting your heart or your funds.
SAGITTARIUS November 22 to December 21
The presence of four major planetary influences in your chart suggests travel. Venus, the planet of romance and indulgence, is guiding you, promising love and success. So go ahead - have fun for a little while. Lose that Sagittarian worry over what might go wrong. Even recent ill health should start to ease. Find what you love doing and enjoy it.
CAPRICORN December 22 to January 19
Think big, with bountiful Jupiter settled in your career sector. Ambition should be a top priority but it needs to be matched by careful planning. Managing your time and energy is essential when turning opportunities into reality. Perhaps change your career or start a business of your own? It’s time to raise your public profile or to turn a hobby into income.
AQUARIUS January 20 to February 18
A full-on month is here and you can’t ignore it. Concentration is called for - a huge ask for any restless Aquarian. The real culprit? Your imagination. There’s a whole world of possibilities out there and staying tethered to commitment feels like a prison sentence. Behave and you might get the occasional day release.
PISCES February 19} to March 20
Routine becomes a way of life for many. If life has become too predictable - try something new. Start, perhaps, by making one small change every day. Initially the choice might not feel comfortable but it’s important to realise how long old patterns have been stuck in place. Be bold, Pisces. The gain? Bolstered confidence. Surprises, too.
ARIES March 21 to April 20
Mars rules your home sector in July, drawing attention to personal matters. Enhance your living space so that it can nourish your hopes and dreams. Arians tend to live in the present but, for now, reconnect with the past. Memories, both happy and sad, help you recognise life patterns. With hindsight you can turn past mistakes into future triumphs.
TAURUS April 21 to May 20
This month, shortterm plans attract more interest. Mars keep you focused but with limited patience. In matters of the heart, singles catch the attention of someone special. For couples, there could be pressure to fall in line with a partner. If so, maintain a sense of independence and equality. At work, if you’re dealing with someone unreasonable, stand your ground.
GEMINI May 21 to June 21
Mars looks set to spark some fiery debates. Little can be left to chance, with finances proving a major source of uncertainty. You’ll have to think on your feet as each new financial twist unfolds. Love isn’t about to lay its cards on the table either. Someone’s got a secret, which could be held against you. Get to the bottom of it, any way you can. n
