Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
It is time to get your house in order. This may be literally changing or improving your home, or it could mean sorting out your relationship with family members. There are times when matters can be swept under the carpet, but this is not one of them. Someone or something is calling on you to prioritise those things and people you hold most dear. It is also possible that a career change triggers the need to re-organise your living arrangements. Creative projects and/or children will help guide you this month. Or in New Age parlance – listen to the voice of your inner child.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Has anyone close to you ever called you “stubborn”? If you are typical Taurean then it is likely that you have heard this trait mentioned, or recognised it in yourself. This month the focus is on communications, ideas and perhaps even short journeys. The more flexible that you can remain the more likely you are to benefit. This is your time to remain open to new ideas, to discuss your thoughts and ideas and to listen to others. This may mean moving out of your comfort zone, particularly when it comes to money. The key to your success is for you to ask yourself: “What do I truly value”? Once you have the answer to this then your own wisdom will guide you to communicate clearly and openly and to make plans that benefit everyone.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
In some ways this is your month of reckoning. What does that mean? Well if you have been pacing yourself, prioritising and successfully juggling the resulting commitments then you are likely to enjoy this month. However, if you have been stretching yourself to the limits, over-committing and over-spending then it is time to make some changes. In some ways you are spoilt for choice. The key is to let go of anything that is outdated, or that no longer fits in with your value system. Letting go, in this society, is rarely easy, but often very worthwhile. Clear out your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual waste so that you are ready move forward after August 8. The first half of the month may see few changes, but your attention will be drawn to important matters in the second half of the month. Money may be an issue, so some planning is needed, but it need not be feared. All Geminis are resourceful and money seems to flow when needed. Generally speaking, security is usually not as big a priority as stimulation.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Other people are ruffling your feathers this month. Do you feel restless, a little resentful of all that you have done for others and yet how little appreciation you are receiving? If this is the case, do not be concerned. These feelings are simply an indication that this is your month to retreat, like your Zodiac symbol the Crab, into your shell. July is the ideal month for you to focus on yourself for a while. Meditation and prayer may be useful, or you may simply choose to spend a little time each day in quiet contemplation. This July all Zodiac Signs need to let go of something in order to move forward. For you this is linked with bad habits that prevent you from living a truly healthy and wholesome life.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
The ideal scenario for Leos this month includes taking a month’s retreat to relax and contemplate beautiful surroundings, or enjoy artistic activities. As this may not be possible then try to fit in little moments of joy. You are full of bright ideas and now is the time to record them, or promote them, but not at the expense of your own health and energy levels. You are being called on to ensure that you follow your heart, as much as your head. While spending time with friends can be rejuvenating, and you can be the life of the party, it is also important that have some much needed “me” time now. In fact your circle of friends may change this month, as you let go of some acquaintances and make some new ones. If you have been planning to take time off for an artistic or creative project, then now is the right time. You need to express yourself, but in a way that truly reflects your deepest wishes. Anything else is likely to be merely a distraction.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Your budget is likely to be tight this month, but if you are planning on purchasing anything significant then you would be wise to do so before July 14, when your ruling planet Mercury goes Retrograde. This is also true for any big decision, contract or project. You may have to adjust some of your career aspirations this month, and focus on your home and your circle of friends. It is time to reach out to others whether this is spending more time with your immediate circle of friends, or joining a new group or club. Your friends and social life need to reflect your values. As such some may change. You have spent some time organising your own life in the recent past. Now you can put the final touches to your projects and be ready to go out and socialise.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Right now you have plenty of get up and go. The question is: “Are you going to ‘get up’ or are you going to ‘go’. In true Libran fashion you may be procrastinating. This is not the time to do so. The feisty planet Mars has moved into your Zodiac Sign this month. On the plus side this means that you now have the opportunity to prioritise and go for what you want. On the negative side you need to ensure that you do not sabotage your own efforts. For instance now is not the time to get a parking fine which means that you have less money to spend on home decorating, or some such other pleasurable project. You need to borrow some traits from your opposition sign Aries and be direct, forthright and focussed on your own goals.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Are you planning an overseas trip or perhaps a course of study? Something is calling you to stretch your wings and fly a little higher, see a bigger picture. This is your month to focus on the bigger picture. Daily habits that have been holding you back need to be ditched in favour of more positive pursuits. Metaphysics, science, politics, religion, higher education and travel are just a few of the pursuits that may appeal this month. You may need to change where you are investing your time, energy and money so that you boost your self-esteem and your own financial coffers.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
July is a month of changing circumstances. In true Archer fashion you may wonder when these changes are going to occur, why they seem to be moving at such a slow pace and whether your arrow will really hit the target. The key is to ensure that you continually focus on your true purpose. Sometimes the best action is to surrender rather than try to force situations. You have the wisdom and the intuition to know that you can take positive action, but at the end of the day you may need to” let go and let be” – not an easy thing for the ever aspiring Sagittarius. If nothing changes in the first half of July then you would be wise to wait until August 8 before making any major decisions, signing any contracts or making any big purchases or investments.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Your primary relationships and your business associates are of prime importance this month. It is time to forge some powerful alliances that stand you in good stead for the future, or to nurture the current associations that benefit you. On the other hand you may like to end some associations, in order to make way for new ones. If you are married then your spouse may require some of your time and energy. Single Capricorns may consider a serious proposition, such as marriage. If you have overcommitted your time and energy then you may need to re-organise your diary and delay some projects. On the other hand, if you have the energy, you can enjoy the satisfaction of hard work and completion of projects that have been hanging around for some time.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
This month is a good one to contemplate how you are of service to yourself and to others. In other words are you living the best life that you can? Any habits that stand between you and wholesome living need to be changed. Put differently you can now focus on a new healthy lifestyle. You may like to try alternative approaches to health and wellbeing, or consult a professional to help you move forward in one way or another. Your diary can easily fill this month so make sure that you are focussing on filling it with activities that support you and your wellbeing.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
This is the ideal time to develop your sense of fun and playfulness. How you do this is up to you. Some suggestions, in keeping with your astrological signals, could be taking up an artistic or creative pursuit, taking part in a spiritual or religious activity or volunteering for a fun project. The emphasis is on enjoying yourself, expressing yourself in fun-filled ways. Children, of all ages, could be particularly pleasurable this month. Avoid all negative people and events. Perhaps stop watching the television news, if you do so. Instead surround yourself with laughter, merriment and loving friends and family. Give yourself permission to live in the moment. The results will be refreshing and better than a long holiday.
