Your Horoscope August 18 through 24

Astrologer’s Diary

Once in every 12 years Jupiter in the royal sign of Leo forms a conjunction with Venus, the planet of traditional marriage. This happens on Monday 18th August at 6.21am (London time) and points to a second honeymoon period for one regal couple, or perhaps one of the year’s most romantic announcements. Of course, Leo spells royalty across all dynasties; this could be about Princess Mary or Prince Harry (or for that matter what remains of the Monaco dynasty too). Elsewhere in the heavens there is a potent opposition from Mercury in Virgo to Neptune in Pisces on Tuesday 19th August at 4.40am. This combination is classically associated with confused and confusing media reports about anything viral and contagious, particularly if it’s carried through water or via droplets in the air. Virgo is the sign to associate with medical research and health and Pisces rules fluids and the dissolution of boundaries. Watch the media.

aries

Aries: 18-24 August 2014

Aries, Pluto in Capricorn is urging you to be more assertive (even to the point of being a slight control freak) about who and what is most crucial to you in career, university or non-profit terms. Perhaps things have now reached the stage where you must stand up for yourself and what matters most, or constantly feel propelled this way and that way, like a leaf in the breeze. The Jupiter-Venus conjunction on Monday augurs well for your relationship with that generation born 20 years or more after you; just keep smiling and follow the signs. This applies to projects which appeal to teenagers or twentysomethings (if you are over fifty ) or even to relationships which may result in pregnancy (if you are in your twenties or thirties). Everything is now abundantly possible.


taurus

Taurus: 18-24 August 2014

Taurus, you are basically at a point in your life where destiny has told you very sternly to take the reins and make things stick (and work) with your internet, foreign, travel, publishing, educational or academic agenda. Pluto can be pretty ruthless and unless you actually stop certain things in their tracks, you will continue to struggle with what feels like a situation you can never really get on top of! The irony, of course, is that all the tools and resources you require are around you. What else is important now? Clearly, you have so much in your favour with the family, house, homeland, home town, household or flat that all you have to do is follow the signposts and accept the help or fortunate twists of fate. This is part of a general reshaping and improvement for you, Taurus.


gemini

Gemini: 18-24 August 2014

Gemini, you are continuing to find your voice or your other best means of expression, and from little acorns, bigger things grow. Just keep an open mind and heart and welcome whatever (or whomever) comes your way. There are no accidents in astrology and if the last 1-2 weeks have coincided with a new way to be heard or read, take it further. You are not being pushy to do this; just responding to what others are quite instinctively seeking from you. The other interesting thing about your horoscope now is the house, the flat, the money, the possessions and/or the charity. Your chart suggests it’s time to be quite determined about staying in control or just clawing it back. Unless you make a concerted effort to do this, something or someone will always dictate terms. Just say no.


cancer

Cancer: 18-24 August 2014

Cancer, Pluto in your opposite sign of Capricorn is a very hard but potentially rewarding transit to go through. If you throw away your willpower and also your own ability to run your own life, then sooner or later, your former, current or potential partner (or conditions/people attached to them) ends up taking your power away. That feeling of not being able to own your own space or turf, psychologically, emotionally or sexually is pretty familiar by now, yet the deep irony is that every single thing you need to be on top (or get on top) is in front of you. Just take it and own it. The Jupiter-Venus match on Monday is about your money, house, flat, charity, business or possessions. It takes two to tango and this is like balancing rubies and potatoes in the scales and making it work.


leo

Leo: 18-24 August 2014

Leo, it’s been 12 years since Jupiter conjuncted Venus in your sign and it’s both rare and welcome to see matters of image, appearance, reputation or packaging become a matter for two people. It’s no longer just your issue; it is also his or hers, yet seldom have you been given so much scope. You may be looking for a solution or just something bigger and better, but The Wonderful World Of Me is a good place to be. The line-up in Capricorn this week, a most practical sign, encourages you to be utterly matter-of-fact about your lifestyle and your body. If you shrug your shoulders and pretend to be without power, the universe will make you feel just that. The trick with this cycle is to recognise the amazing resources and tools around you and use them to take the reins back.


virgo

Virgo: 18-24 August 2014

Virgo, if things with (or through) the children in your world have become rather bent out of shape, you need to be honest with yourself and admit that you have let things run on; instead of sticking to a successful formula you were creating a few weeks/months ago, you have let things slide. This also applies to babies, relationships which promise pregnancy or adoption, youth projects and anything from adolescent through young adult concerns. If you go on pretending that he/she/they/it is running your world then you are giving away the power that could change everything! The other key issue now is what is submerged, below the surface and quite unknown or unseen. Do you want some massive, overdue improvement or just a glittering horizon? Your choice.


libra

Libra: 18-24 August 2014

Libra, power is actually willpower and unless you use yours, the situation with your family, house, accommodation, flat, home town, household or homeland will continue to make you feel as if you have no say in what occurs. Of course this is a huge waste of an opportunity, as the whole time that you have been letting things slide in a particular direction, you were actually in possession  of just what you needed all along. The trick is appreciating that and actually using it to your total advantage. You might think you are problem solving, but you could actually be on the cusp of something far more potent, remarkable and life-changing, if you would only pursue this to its logical conclusion. The other interesting thing about your week? Your friend or group. Just say yes, yes, yes.


scorpio

Scorpio: 18-24 August 2014

Scorpio, great opportunity and fulfilment can only come when you build or mend a bridge with someone who is innately connected to your success, your life direction or your ambition. This was always going to be a matter for two people, even way back in mid July when the first glimpses of opportunity revealed themselves. You may be trying to repair something overdue for wholeness in your life, or just pursuing the biggest and best – but in all cases, around Monday you will see why two people can create potent alchemy together. The focus on Capricorn in your chart now also suggests that you have to be a lot more resolute and assertive with those who affect how you are heard and read, online and offline. It’s your Communication H.Q. and it belongs to you; take it on, fully.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 18-24 August 2014

Sagittarius, the funniest things have occurred of late, giving you perhaps six weeks of odd turning points and subtle but important changes, all helping you to turn a corner with your life as a traveller, student, internet user, teacher, world citizen, publisher or writer. Jupiter, your ruler, has a way of forcing your hand and it may not be until you are well into the closing weeks of 2014 that you can actually see what was going on right now, back in August, and how it was pushing you in just the right direction. Sometimes you just have to let life, destiny and other people make the changes for you! The Pluto patterns this week also remind you to use your force of personality and your self-control to get the power back over the money, business interests, possessions, house, charity, flat and so on. Unless you actually own the control and stop pretending you don’t have any, you are going to continue to be blown around like an autumn leaf.


capricorn

Capricorn: 18-24 August 2014

Capricorn, with Pluto in your sign this week making strong aspects in your chart, you can finally summon up all the energy, focus, determination and concentration required to turn things around with your image or reputation. This also applies to your online profile, personal appearance and so on. The last few weeks have been truly challenging in terms of you sticking doggedly to a formula you know works for you. Instead you have thrown your hands up in the air and allowed something/someone to dictate terms. Only because you let it happen, though – no other reason! Now that you also have solutions, remedies, advantages and opportunities not possible in 12 years financially, perhaps it’s time to make a priority list and begin hitting it like Sir Donald Bradman.


aquarius

Aquarius: 18-24 August 2014

Aquarius, the Mercury -Neptune opposition this week is in your banking, salary, business, charity, taxation, possessions and cashflow zone. You may want to allow the moment to pass before doing any major sums or attempting any crucial paperwork. The presence of Jupiter in Leo suggests you are being handed certain thing on a plate when it comes to your former, current or potential partner. Even with enemies! Twists of fate, unlikely helpers, useful turning points created by you – and a great deal that you have just fallen into – all assists the changes. This is the very earliest stage of a big wave in your chart designed to utterly reshape the way things are with a special person. Even a dispute or conflict can benefit you when Jupiter conjuncts Venus, around Monday.


pisces

Pisces: 18-24 August 2014

Pisces, you appear to have let yourself flip-flop all over the place in the last few weeks and it may feel to you as if your social life, group commitment, old friend or new friend is disempowering you on some level. Nothing could be further from the truth; you have just given your power away , for whatever reason, and the irony is that you have seldom been in such a good position to use whatever/whomever is close by, to really reshape things very effectively. The Jupiter-Venus conjunction in Leo is also telling you to look at your lifestyle, daily workload, wellbeing, duty and service to others as a wholistic entity. In other words you cannot separate how well you feel physically from the hours you are putting in at work, university or as a volunteer. Fortunately the one person you need to treat this as a two-way street is making all the right noises near Monday. You two can take things so much further; the bluest sky is your biggest limit.

Your Horoscope August 11 through 17

Astrologer’s Diary

As we move towards the final quarter of 2014 Mars in Scorpio joins Saturn in Scorpio, the sign to be associated with big business, the sharemarket, taxation, the property market and the world economy. Saturn in Scorpio has accurately timed one of the most testing slowdowns in 29 years. This planet is linked to the archetype of the old Roman god Saturn who self-sabotaged like there was no tomorrow. He sucked the life force out of everything and everybody! Placed in Scorpio since the final quarter of 2012 you can see why the final quarter of 2014 is so important; it is the last stage. Joined by Mars, Saturn will now deliver green lights and red lights to the world, in terms of stop-start motion with the global economy. This takes in Wall Street but also issues like Bitcoin. We won’t really see the end of this phase until Christmas 2014 when at last Saturn moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. Until then a great deal will be reshaped.

aries

Aries: 11-17 August 2014

Aries, you just don’t have to (or need to) handle the same ‘me’ issues in the same old way. Uranus in Aries, your own sign, is moving into a prime position in your chart, ahead of the famous Jupiter-Uranus trine, which will dominate the rest of this year. What does that mean? Basically, that a major solution or opportunity involving those 20 years younger than yourself (the next generation) will sit beautifully alongside the most exciting, thrilling possibilities for your name, brand, image, look, reputation or profile. I know that many Aries people will confirm pregnancies for this reason, yet there are many ways for you to manifest this happy destiny. This is a new season of growth and radical change. Don’t be afraid to be revolutionary in your approach to the ‘me’ issues.


taurus

Taurus: 11-17 August 2014

Taurus, you are proceeding happily towards a bigger and better home, a reshaped family life (with any issues eradicated), property gains, a big relocation to a superior area, a deeper and more rewarding connection to your home town or homeland – or a happier household. There is no stopping the process, all you have to do is keep following the guideposts. Alongside this new development, which peaks in August, but continues until August 2015, we also have a major new pattern involving Uranus in Aries in your chart. I know that you have been experimenting with whatever/whomever is so new, different, innovative, exciting and groundbreaking for a few years now – at least in terms of what is secret about yourself or your life, or deliberately behind the scenes (invisible). This now takes a fascinating turn as the planets in their courses shift in your favour. If nobody else can see it or even knows about it, you can just bet that this is where the new sense of space and possibility will come from. And Uranus can be very unusual; what follows is the last thing you may have expected.


gemini

Gemini: 11-17 August 2014

Gemini, the forthcoming trine from Jupiter in Leo (which rules your word power and way with images and the internet) and Uranus in Aries (which rules your friendships and group commitments) is stunning. It builds in slow stages and you are moving into the first phase of these at the moment. Let’s focus on Uranus in Aries most of all, as this is familiar to you – and yet not familiar. Your horoscope suggests that 2-3 years ago you can began experimenting with a new way to be part of a group; a different way to be a friend; a more exciting way to have a social life. This trend now picks up again in an entirely different direction and I would say that the old or new friend – or the old or new circle of people – which has a starring role in your life right now, is your key to freedom. If  you want to feel gloriously independent, with a sense of infinite possibility, then just explore the options with this person/these people. What develops in tandem with this is a project or plan so big in scope, so oozing with potential, so remarkably feelgood and positive – that you find it thoroughly irresistible.


cancer

Cancer: 11-17 August 2014

Cancer, we just had a Full Moon in Leo and Aquarius, and it stretched across the axis of your chart which rules your money, business, house, flat, possessions and charity interests. I suspect that whatever or whomever did not come together for you, is actually the core of something far bigger and better, in terms of solutions or opportunities to have more, or save more. Moving on from that story in your chart (fresh as you begin this new week) we come to the idea of Jupiter in Leo offering you answers and open doorways. I know that you went through one of the most confusing and confused financial cycles of your life a few years ago as Neptune passed through Aquarius and the noise distortion with your bank, company, property or good cause was just crazy. That was then, however, and this is now, and if there are any remaining problems, this Jupiter cycle can fix them. Onto Uranus in Aries! You define status and success your own way. And you’d better…because this cycle is about making it up as you go along. Inventing an exciting new world. Putting ‘Free’ on your C.V. first of all.


leo

Leo: 11-17 August 2014

Leo, you have spent what must seem like years experimenting wildly (or to quote The Smiths, Oscillating Wildly) with foreign travel, unfamiliar cultures and nationalities, the internet in general – and of course, study, teaching and publishing. You now find things ease into position with an organic flow that makes you realise the last 2-3 years played their part in your forthcoming success and happiness, in a way you did not really know at the time. Why do I say that? Because Uranus in Aries is behind this slow revolution in the way you travel, work with other nationalities and cultures, teach, study, write, publish and use the web. And Uranus in Aries is moving into a trine with Jupiter in Leo, your own sign, not possible for years. This week is part of the wider pattern of radical and exciting change. Any person or situation which cramped your style and prevented you, perhaps literally, from travelling in style (geographically or mentally) will not last. This new trend is about the expansion and growth of your brand, name, reputation, face, shape and persona. This co-exists beautifully with the revolution now unfolding in connection with your trips – and your head trips. Just follow the signs. Weirdly, thunder or lightning may be one!


virgo

Virgo: 11-17 August 2014

Virgo, you only get one trine from Jupiter in Leo to Uranus in Aries every few years. And maybe you need to be as old as Doctor Who to experience it. This year is so worth the wait, though, because even though new freedom and independence with your finances is coming very late, it can only be cherished. I have often said in the past, in this column, that you cannot put a price tag on being liberated. I know that bankers and advertisers would love us to believe that borrowing scads of money to be ‘successful’ in terms of property ownership or business success will make us happy. I could go on, but you know the rest. At some point in the last 1-2 years you have been blocked, restricted, trapped and confined with your cash, house, business, charity, flat or possessions in a way that has been like dull background noise. Fortunately that whine is to replaced with the bugle call of new freedom and it’s never been this easy to do things differently; to find some space; to get some oxygen. Uranus in Aries is about making your own revolution. What would you pay to have a brand new day?


libra

Libra: 11-17 August 2014

Libra, you are now approaching a peak moment on your journey with a particular former, current or potential partner. Alternatively with an enemy, opponent or rival. What is the peak? It is about new freedom, space and independence. To get an idea of what Uranus in Aries can do, just bear in mind this planet was discovered in the same year that the British lost the final battle to the Americans in their pursuit of revolution and liberty. In this same year, the first rumblings that would start the French Revolution occurred, and in Britain, the Industrial Revolution accelerated with new inventions that would change everything. There are some key words right there for your week. You can tattoo ‘revolution’ and ‘liberty’ and ‘new inventions’ on your heart and go forward. The new invention may be an emotional, sexual or psychological construction, rather than anything with cogs and wheels. Basically you are being told ‘Now or never’ by the universe in regard to this very important person in your life. Or perhaps about the institution of marriage, or divorce, or separation, or de facto relationships, or legal disputes (a very lucrative institution for the legal profession) and so on. Who wants to be locked inside the same old institution?


scorpio

Scorpio: 11-17 August 2014

Scorpio, you only get one trine from Uranus in your daily workload sector to Jupiter in your success sector, in this particular way, once in your life. It is building in your horoscope as I write this and of course you can sense something in the air. Just follow the signs. As I have mentioned before, thunder and lightning may be one of them. Astrology is about synchronicity and Uranus is associated with electrical storms. Jupiter is associated with thunderbolts. Put them together, as they build in your chart, and any number of weather displays; apparently ‘chance’ photographs on your Twitter feed; book jackets; AC/DC albums and more will appear! Beyond symbols and signs, though, let us look at the facts. You are being given the most stunning solution in years to any career, university or non-profit role issues. Over and above that, you are being shown the gateway to the biggest and best. All you really have to do this week is keep smiling and nodding. But be radical, Scorpio. As a fixed sign you can resist change. Well, don’t do it in 2014. Embrace or begin this revolution. Free!


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 11-17 August 2014

Sagittarius, a number of people born under your sign will find themselves at the heart of a Grand Trine soon – a splendid display which looks like a pyramid in your horoscope. Even if your birthday does not qualify you for that spectacle (which makes everything and everybody possible in the most stunning way), you still stand to gain from what is happening in the heavens this week. Basically you are being told to forget the past, ditch the old way of doing things, and be radical. Just look at your relationship with the world of babies, children or younger people in general to see why. Beyond that, there are the relationships which bring this generation (born 20 years or more after you) closer to you. The connection may be obvious (your son or daughter) or more professionally or philanthropically based (a job involving younger people or a non-profit role with them). In all cases, though, you know when you are being told to take a radical or revolutionary stance. Someone or something has blocked your way. Cramped your style. Confined you when you should have been breaking new ground and thrilling yourself and others with a particular way of operating – as a parent, potential parent, aunt, uncle, godparent, grandparent and so on. This also extends to any career or charity role with the young. The person or situation which locked you down for so long is frankly, no longer an issue.


capricorn

Capricorn: 11-17 August 2014

Capricorn, we just had a Full Moon across the money, property, possessions, business and charity axis of your chart. What (or who) did not add up is actually part of your greater reward later, so do not spend too long frowning over the lack of wholeness or perfection about the numbers, or the other situation which failed to satisfy you, or others. In actual fact this is going to be at the core of the one, big, welcome solution or opportunity you deserve. Moving beyond this, let us now look at your family, house, flat, home town, homeland and/or household. I know that life has been one long experiment in this area for a long time; to the point where you feel as if every month brings another discovery or breakthrough. What you have really needed all along is a big shift, though. A big shift which actually rumbles through the earth and moves mountains in your life. A proper change! This is now imminent and you would be crazy to resist it. Did you know how confined, trapped and restricted you were by a particular person, situation or place? Maybe not, but the universe does. And it’s time to be free.


aquarius

Aquarius: 11-17 August 2014

Aquarius, your ruling planet Uranus is slowly moving into a trine with Jupiter in your opposite sign of Leo, which rules your former, current and potential partners. Leo also rules your enemies, opponents and rivals. As you already sense, and maybe have plain-sight evidence for, this is an amazing time of improvement, problem-solving and beyond that, staggering opportunities which will become real for you by 2015. Beyond the situation with him or her, though, your horoscope suggests it is time to look at the way you are heard and read. Communication and information are the state of your nation, as we go into the middle of August. You are being asked to take a wildly radical step towards thrilling freedom and independence, no matter if this is about the internet, your computer skills, publishing and writing, foreign languages, multimedia projects, songs (and singing) or face-to-face talking. Of course I know you have experimented before, 2-3 years ago, and very successfully too. But since then some big, lumbering obstacles and restrictions have held you back. You are so used to living with these blockages that you don’t even notice them any more. But take heart. The Universe has noticed. And it wishes to remove them.


pisces

Pisces: 11-17 August 2014

Pisces use this week or lose it forever. I’m talking about your money, apartment, house, business,charity and/or possessions. You are now on the brink of a decision that would liberate you from the person, situation, place or organisation that restricts you so much, you may not even be aware of how deeply the tentacles go. It is easy to be scared of a revolution. The Americans were, at heart, in 1781 – who cannot fail to be scared when the past is about to be sheared away, and the new world has to be invented every single day? Yet look at the United States of America now. Then hold the image of the Statue of Liberty in your mind. You may even have synchronicity (meaningful coincidences) about her this week – or other images of freedom, revolution and liberty in your life. It is all a cosmic coincidence designed to make your mind up. Even if you have to totally reject a person, organisation or situation which has been a part of everything for so long, what do you (and they) in all honesty have to lose, except the staleness of a situation which is unnatural. By that, I mean it is against nature. It is against the life force of thrilling change and new growth which we all need, rich or poor, to actually value life way beyond cash or jewellery.

Your Horoscope August 4 through 10

Astrologer’s Diary

We have a Full Red Moon on Sunday 10th August at 7.09pm in London (adjust for your location). It takes place when the Sun falls at 18 Leo 02 and the Moon is directly opposite at 18 Aquarius 02. This Full Moon is especially important for Australia  because of its military nature. Who is with Australia and who is against her? Very close to Monday 11th August, Australia is in an extremely uncomfortable, but useful position, with her allies and enemies. Why it is useful? Because everything is revealed, no matter if we are talking old Axis of Evil problems, or the special relationship with America and Great Britain. What else is happening in the world horoscope this week? On Tuesday 5th August at 5.11pm Saturn in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces. More will be added to the growing stories about paedophile networks and the tragedy of child sexual abuse and cover-ups. Why? Because Chiron in Pisces translates as ‘outrageous secret behaviour’ and Saturn in Scorpio translates as ‘reality about sex, power and money.’ The good news? By Christmas the detoxing is mostly over.

aries

Aries: 4-10 August 2014

Aries, you are now going to examine your relationships with babies, children and teenagers (maybe young adults, if you are beyond 50) with more depth and detail. I would also add any professional or voluntary role involving a younger generation to this category, and of course, the relationships which could bring pregnancy or adoption. Close to Monday 4th, Friday 8th and the Full Red Moon on Sunday 10th you will be shown exactly what needs to change, in order to get your happy ending. And there will be one – Jupiter, the planet which fixes problems and brings big opportunities, is now in the horoscope zone which rules legacies – in your case, this is the legacy of your personality, spirit, character and essence which you leave to those who come after you (those born 20 years or more after you). What else is happening this week? The Saturn-Chiron trine on Tuesday 5th August really puts the money, house, business, apartment, charity or precious possessions in sharp perspective for you. You only have five months of the waiting games and obstacles to go, Aries, but you also need to be honest with yourself. Is the coping method you’ve been using lately the right one? Should it be changed? Even shelved?


taurus

Taurus: 4-10 August 2014

Taurus, you really need the events of this week to get the optimum result with your house, family, apartment, household, home town or homeland (maybe in combination). You are in a stunning position not possible for 12 years when you can add light, space or room to your existing home. When you can fix family issues or welcome happy new additions to the family circle. When you can deepen your relationship with your place in the world, no matter if it’s San Francisco or Sydney. In order to get there from here, you need to examine every detail and deal with the need for creative solutions. I think very close to Friday 8th August and Sunday 10th August are the turning points, so perhaps it’s a family get-together or an event involving your household which is the trigger. Of course, the weekend is when we buy or sell property, move home or inspect new places to rent. Scope out everything and everybody with an invisible microscope in your mind, because you need to be totally ready for Sunday 10th August-Monday 11th August when solutions will be required. What you get in return is the most fantastic result, Taurus, so please do not begrudge the time and energy your people or place calls for.


gemini

Gemini: 4-10 August 2014

Gemini, if your multimedia project, web venture, social media, debate, speech media involvement, book – or street mime performance (I am not joking) – is going to be as wonderful as your horoscope, suggests, please read carefully. Despite all the issues this week, you are going to find that the next seven days refines what you are trying to say, sing, capture or write, so that rather like a rough diamond, it is enhanced by the cutting process. There may be an even bigger role which uses your voice, across all mediums or media; maybe you just became a voice coach. I am absolutely sure that conditions near Friday through Sunday will push you, pressure you and prod you. However, that way lies greatness. The other issue I need to mention is Chiron in Pisces, in your zone of achievement and ambition near Tuesday 5th August. I mention this because no matter if your ‘voice’ matters in a career or university context – or purely in your spare time – the most satisfying accomplishments are not always necessarily professionally recognised. However destiny has placed you, though, I suspect this is one of those crossroads when you can either be a maverick or a mouse.Maverick is an old word from American history which talks about branding, versus refusing to be branded. I think your punk rock moment just arrived Gemini.


cancer

Cancer: 4-10 August 2014

Cancer, I look at your horoscope near Friday 8th and Sunday 10th August and I see a Full Moon cutting across the axis of your financial, business, property, charity, shopping and selling horoscope. You are ruled by the Moon so a Full Moon (and this is a Red Moon) affects you far more profoundly than the other signs of the zodiac. You can expect a crossroads of the best possible kind. A crossroads that you benefit from, no matter if you want to eliminate debt or increase your money, or your ‘cash in kind’ assets. One of the year’s most significant letters, calls, e-mails, media reports or meetings will take place very close to Friday 8th if not actually on the day. For the most satisfyingly happy long-term results, look beyond the numbers to the meaning on a soul level. This is about feeding your value system. What you will and will not sell out for. What you consider (or whom you consider) to be priceless in your life. What else in this insanely important week? Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is the maverick and punk rocker of astrology. He points to audacious behaviour. What Gen Y might call an ermagerd moment and I would call Totally Slits* Very close to Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th I believe you will be tempted to jump the shark in connection with your trip, foreign connection, website, book or course.

*The Slits. One of the best punk rock bands in history. You think Miley Cyrus is outrageous? My dears, she’s a fraud.


leo

Leo: 4-10 August 2014

Leo, it’s all about you again. You, you, you. There’s a bit of You near Monday 4th August, another bit of You near Friday 8th August, and yet more You on the weekend of 9th and 10th August. It all works for you. Even when it’s confronting. Why does it all work for you? Because you are in the best cycle in 12 years for self-promotion, body and beauty priorities, internet profiling, publicity and this is key – the restoration of your reputation. I’ll give you a concrete example of the last one. Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Both Leo. I am writing this from a hotel room in Dubai on 7th July, so one month ago as you read this, but just watch the news this week, because what is happening in the Bill-Monica show (redemption at last) is also happening for you. I don’t doubt that this new forward push of yours, the big relaunch and image reshape, is going to be demanding. There are lots of challenges near Sunday 10th, okay? But it’s so worth it. Now, the other issue in your horoscope this week is your money, apartment, business, house, charity or precious possessions. Near Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th you will be very tempted to do what ‘they’ say is impossible, unthinkable, unprecedented. Who cares? You certainly don’t. My only caveat is, please keep it real. Keep an anchor grounding you in the real world or you could end up seriously lost.


virgo

Virgo: 4-10 August 2014

Virgo, very close to Friday 8th and Sunday 10th August you will be consumed by a world nobody else can see. It is rather like the space explored by Jacques Cousteau or Steve Irwin. Submerged. Something big and wonderful is bubbling under, but because it requires tremendous secrecy from you (even your best friend can’t probe this one) or the most gifted kind of puppeteering (nobody can see you, hidden away above the stage, pulling the strings) it’s a peculiar situation for you. All I can say is, do whatever it takes, even if you have to creep around like Ian Fleming (he worked for British Intelligence before he created James Bond) or operate out of sight, like the people on the end credits of Hollywood films. I am absolutely sure your journey will be complicated, full of obstacles and cross-currents, but I also knows this is the greatest thing in your life all year. And not just this year, but the first half of 2015 as well. What else is going on? Well, I really should have said this first, but you so need to focus time and mental energy on your former, current or potential partner. Also your great enemy, rival or opponent. Very close to Tuesday and Thursday you will be offered a clear choice. You can either cross the line or stay behind it. You can either move the goalposts or walk away from the game. There is a great Billy Bragg song called ‘Moving the Goalposts’ in which he talks about two lovers staying up all night effectively changing the rules. If you move the goal posts with this crucial man or woman, then the game will never be the same. No pressure.


libra

Libra: 4-10 August 2014

Libra, you chose really well when you let particular friends or groups into your life. You will see why in the final four days of this week, and perhaps as late as Monday 11th August. Despite the imperfect nature of what is going on, just remember that it’s the rough edges and loose ends which make for great art. And in many ways your friendship or group commitment is a work of art, one which is created with your own famous talent for fairness, for balance, for diplomacy. This is also the gift that goes on giving, Libra, so pour as much time and energy into the discussion, texts or e-mails as required. Some works of art are classic. They look that way from the second they are created. I think this particular alliance or tribal/team involvement falls into this category, so don’t worry about what  you have to solve, fix or compromise over by Monday 11th. This is worth every breath you take, every move you make. Moving right along to other fascinating horoscope trends – your lifestyle, daily workload, work ethic and body has to be right up there. Everything is connected in astrology. Mind, body, work, spirit – you can’t separate them. If you have personal planets in Virgo it’s an even bigger deal for you. Whatever your horoscope, very close to Tuesday and Thursday I think you are ready to shrug your shoulders and say ‘WTF’ (or whatever works for you; Shakespeare can be very good). You’re not in this to play safe, you’re in this to experiment, explore, escape. My only caution is – what impact will this really have on your body? Okay, lecture over.


scorpio

Scorpio: 4-10 August 2014

Scorpio, I have been working as an astrologer for most of my professional life, but I have never seen anything like your success horoscope right now. Very close to Friday 8th and Sunday 10th, maybe as late as Monday 11th, you will be handed the kind of choices about your career, your life as a student – or as a volunteer – which can only come along every 12 years. If you know your horoscope and you have the Sun in Scorpio at 18 degrees, then it’s deeply personal too. No matter what your chart looks like, take on all the issues and make them work for you. Because they will. And you deserve the biggest and best, and it’s right here in front of you, ready to take all the way through August 2015. On a pure lifestyle note, let’s just say you are also being offered liberation and never mind your work ethic, your body will thank you for it. Moving right along to the earlier part of the week, it’s all about your son or daughter. Your young relative or godchild. A younger demographic (much younger) in your career. A part-time project or interest which involves a younger generation. You don’t have to go along with this tidal wave of change, but if you surf somewhere you’re not supposed to go (or apparently ‘can’t’ go) you will end up taking the ripcurl of the month. Only you can make the choice. But hang onto your leg rope and don’t lose sight of the shore.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 4-10 August 2014

Sagittarius, if you know your chart and you have the Sun at 18 Sagittarius, what happens close to Sunday 10th or Monday 11th August is a defining moment for you. Whatever your horoscope, the second half of this week shows amazing potential for your relationship with another region or country, or its citizens – or culture. Depending on your personal chart, I think you are well on the way to emigrating, ambitious exporting, major global networking online, or the pursuit of other cultures and histories so different to your own. Of course, you can play this horoscope any way you wish, but I would suggest that you keep on trucking, even when you hit inner conflicts or outer-world obstacles. That’s part of the achievement and your trip, move, web related venture, qualification, course or book is worth every minute of your time, because it will add to your life in ever-increasing and wonderful ways, right through August 2015. As a side note, I should mention that your belief system or philosophy (anything from astrology through to atheism) will also deepen in meaning and importance as an add-on. The other story this week? It just has to be your family, household, apartment, house, home town and/or homeland. What happens near Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th is so tempting. And by this stage, you’ve already had a lot of practise at getting away with what you’re not supposed to get away with! Just ask yourself – where will this take me? I have no doubt at all that you can have your punk rock moment, but are you Sid Vicious or Siouxsie Sioux?


capricorn

Capricorn: 4-10 August 2014

Capricorn, what is under discussion, online or in the mail on Friday 8th August (or very close to it) has you looking at the money, house, business, apartment, charity or precious possessions with intense and happy focus. This follows on from the numbers or facts which were on your radar, very close to Monday 4th August. By Sunday 10th and Monday 11th, you will no doubt feel as if the inner conflicts or real-world issues are pulling you like the tides. This strong tidal feeling is to your advantage, though. Without it, you would not be doing the real maths, and the real maths is about your values. Your principles and ethics have a price. Integrity costs. It is also true that you cannot put a price on soul or spirit commodities like freedom, self-respect, compassion and so on. People and animals in your life are most definitely priceless. And then there’s the material world! In all cases I think you can have your soul’s purchase, and be deeply content, but first you must fire walk with me, all the way into early next week. What comes out of this is the gift that goes on giving, Capricorn, because Jupiter is in your zone of values, finance, property, charity and business through August 2015. What else matters now? The internet, the media, publishing, private writing, spoken-word pursuits or singing. Near Tuesday and Thursday you get to push the boat out. How far out should the boat go? Put it this way. It’s not on most shipping maps. Just don’t get lost at sea, please.


aquarius

Aquarius: 4-10 August 2014

Aquarius, your partner is just as important as the process surrounding him or her. I would also venture that the partner you loved and lost is also no less crucial than the journey you take, because of his/her influence. It may also be the case that you have a potential partner waiting in the wings, and have focussed on his/her personality as the key to everything, when in actual fact this person is just an agent for change in your life. (If you have an enemy, rival or opponent I will get to this person at the end of the paragraph). Basically, no matter if you find yourself staring down the lens at your former, current or potential partner near Monday 4th, Friday 8th, Sunday 10th, the path you are taking is worth every bridge you have to cross. The biggest bridge of all will come near Sunday 10th, Monday 11th at the Full Moon (look overhead and you will see it). You can double that message if you know your personal horoscope and you have the Sun at 18 Aquarius. Whatever your chart looks like, take the trip! Handle the obstacles! See where life takes you, because ultimately, for you and he (or you and she) it will take you somewhere utterly rewarding in every way. Aquarius, I suspect that the money, house, apartment, business, charity or precious possessions will be a big part of the story with this person (in about one in four cases) so if this sounds like you, remember to keep your feet on the ground and keep it real, especially if you are signing things. Neptune can be a very confused and confusing influence near Thursday 7th so get second opinions. P.S. If your enemy, rival or opponent is the issue this week, be aware that you stand to gain from the separation or the conflict. That may sound strange but I have learned to trust astrology over the years and when you have Jupiter transiting your solar Seventh House, no matter how tough that Full Moon is this weekend, remember that you gain from pain. Or you gain from The Pain, if this person has a name. I am sure he/she does (among your friends) but by jingo, you stand to benefit.


pisces

Pisces: 4-10 August 2014

Pisces, figuring out your emerging new lifestyle takes time, but it is worth all the effort. The news, conversation or e-mail near Friday 8th is a turning point, and that’s the understatement of the year. Beyond what this could do for your work ethic (suddenly, work becomes as meaningful as play) there is another reward. It rests with your temple – your body – no matter what condition, your condition is in. Unless you have a horoscope with many Virgo factors, or a loaded Sixth House, I am sure your physical being matters far less to you than everything else in the world. Yet, with Jupiter in your Sixth House for the first time in 12 years, I can only begin to guess at the discoveries you are making about what you eat and drink, how this affects your mood – and especially sport, yoga, meditation and so on. At a deeper level, and also a deeper cellular level, there may be incredible new insights of a medical or alternative health nature. Pisces, I mention all this possible reward, because in order to get the lifestyle that you deserve, you have to cross a river near Sunday 10th and Monday 11th August. It’s a big river to wade over, but you will do it – and in the process you will move into new territory which is wonderful in every way, no matter if your priority is your job, course, volunteer role or how your body serves your mind. Why do I keep banging on about your body? Because you also have Chiron and Neptune in Pisces this week, making waves on Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th, and as your image or appearance is half the story now (you are using the way you look and appear, to experiment with life) then the dots join up. It’s Me Time again! But it all works for you.

Your Horoscope July 28 through August 3

Astrologer’s Diary

Leo rules leadership (and always has – thus the lion’s association with royalty, and the symbolism of the Lion King). This week puts leaders and leadership firmly on the global radar, thanks to Mercury’s entry into Leo on Thursday 31st July. Shortly after this, we have a Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on Saturday 2nd August. From Barack Obama to the British Royal Family (and all former first families, like the Clintons) it’s time to focus squarely on issues like elections, and inherited thrones. We only see a Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in Leo like this, once every twelve years. All those Presidents, Kings, Queens and Prime Ministers are on our list.

aries

Aries: 28 July-3 August

Aries, you can leave your DNA behind to those who come after you. Alternatively you can leave the stamp of your personality and influence. Who inherits the legacy of your character, anyway? That’s the big question for the weekend, no matter if you are thinking in terms of children and godchildren, or focussing on a younger generation for an entirely different reason. You are certainly right to be optimistic. Saturday’s conjunction between Jupiter and Mercury translates as ‘mind expansion’ and for the first time in years, you are in a position to think big (and walk your talk) about those born 20 years or more after you; those who are your natural heirs.


taurus

Taurus: 28 July-3 August

Taurus, these aspects in your horoscope are like a snowball, gathering speed and layers as the days roll past. I am sure you were already feeling quite hopeful about your house, apartment, family, household, home town and/or homeland anyway. That notion of belonging to a place, or to a clan (or tribe) has been happily on your radar for around a fortnight now. What comes to pass around Saturday is just the confirmation. You can relax in your newfound optimism. Whatever is rolling in your life is not an illusion. The more you build this (anything from a new kitchen to the relationship with your mother) the more it grows…and grows…


gemini

Gemini: 28 July-3 August

It’s unusual to see your ruler Mercury in conjunction with Jupiter, the symbol of abundance, growth, hope and expansion. It’s even more unusual to see these two planets in the area of your horoscope associated with websites, books, multimedia, the written word, the spoken word and so on. All you really have to do, is what comes naturally! Once you find the medium that is right for you, the message follows – and quel message. You have something really substantial and rewarding on your hands, no matter if you are clasping a pencil, or you have your hands on a computer mouse – or a microphone stand. Keep up the momentum. This will be big.


cancer

Cancer: 28 July-3 August

Now, you must talk facts and figures, and try to get everything confirmed with as much discussion as possible. The money, the house, the business, the apartment or the precious possessions can be couched in pure mathematical terms. Of course this is about numbers, at the end of the day. What is more meaningful, though, is the soul satisfaction you must now feel at this incredible new story in your life, which has been gathering momentum ever since Jupiter changed signs in the middle of July. Once Mercury also changes signs on Thursday 31st July the signatures or handshake agreement is surely just a matter of time. The nice thing about this cycle is that you can use money, to make money. Alternatively you can trade on ‘cash in kind’ no matter if it’s a Picasso or a rare Sex Pistols single.


leo

Leo: 28 July-3 August

You are now officially inhabiting The Wonderful World of Me and this is far easier for you, than the rather odd situation you were in throughout 2013 and 2014, when you were practically the Invisible Woman or Invisible Man. Mercury enters Leo, your own sign, on Thursday at 11.45pm in London. From that point forward, you can unashamedly focus your mind on your reputation, personal appearance, profile, face and name. One would expect the news, paperwork, conversation or digital discussion this weekend to mark a milestone for the ‘me’ issues. You are quite right to want more – and to be more. The only issue is the timeless nature of the internet. See yourself as others see you, before you open your mouth, put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard. Haughty is not your best look.


virgo

Virgo: 28 July-3 August

Virgo, by this time next year you will be marvelling at how much you achieved out of sight, behind the scenes, or operating in secret. It’s very tempting to be modest at the moment and allow others to take the attention and limelight. Alternatively you may be longing to pursue hush-hush matters of a classified nature. Some Virgoans are just relishing the idea of taking time out, alone, to submerge and inhabit an intoxicating inner world. However you play this transit, the forthcoming Mercury-Jupiter conjunction is the only excuse you need to seal the deal. You may be articulating this to an audience of one (yourself) or to a confidante; in any case your mind appears to be made up after Saturday. You are more than happy to spend the rest of 2015 far, far below the radar.


libra

Libra: 28 July-3 August

Libra, towards the end of June a group project, team venture or tribal commitment slid back onto your radar. It may have been the European Union, a charity project, the Conservative Party or a weight loss club. It may have been the Girl Guides, a Led Zeppelin tribute band or a school reunion. All I can say, from looking at your chart, is that you were right to sniff the air, pick up the scent, and follow the rose-strewn pathway. There is so much for you to gain from this circle of people that you may well be prepared to drop everything, just to hang with the group. People power is a reality. It moves mountains. It also moves you emotionally, because at heart, you are an air sign and you circulate, in a breezy fashion. This is what energises you. By the weekend, you must commit yourself, even if it’s just a verbal promise. So much more will come from these friends – and they are true friends – not Facebook faces.


scorpio

Scorpio: 28 July-3 August

It is quite remarkable to see Mercury conjunct Jupiter on the midheaven of your chart. I have not seen this pattern for over a decade and I am sure you have felt the momentous nature of August, almost as soon as you entered July. You certainly have good reason to be optimistic. The mood is expansive, hopeful and very much about thinking big; thinking small just isn’t relevant any more. It is common for a Jupiter transit like this to manifest in particular people and organisations, in which case you must be dealing with those who take a lofty view of the world, from extravagant heights. The key to your week is the news, signatures or discussions around Saturday. Nothing succeeds like success, and the wave you catch now is something you can surf all the way to 2015. Enjoy the ride.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 28 July-3 August

Your ruling planet Jupiter makes a rare conjunction with Mercury this weekend, in an area of your horoscope which is also associated with Jupiter and Sagittarius in the natural zodiac. It is known as the Ninth House and in old astrological textbooks it is associated with long sea voyages. These days, we associate it with long-haul flights and of course, the internet, where you can cross thousands of miles in your mind with  single mouse-click. Almost as soon as Mercury changes signs on Thursday you will become aware of the epic nature of the discussion or agreement to come, this weekend. There is no news like good news, and this is very good news indeed. Even if the ‘epic sea voyage’ is intellectual (it involves teaching or studying) you will feel like Magellan. Sometimes the voyage is spiritual or religious in nature; that can also change your life for the better. A book? A website? Emigration? Anything is possible.


capricorn

Capricorn: 28 July-3 August

Well, Capricorn, you can now make the most of what the universe is giving you, and then use what you have to accumulate more. There is nothing wrong with the natural flow of abundance, and the smart money is on letting the cash circulate – at least once the discussion, paperwork or signatures are out of the way, from this weekend. Sometimes the gains you make on a Jupiter-Mercury conjunction are channelled through property, or precious possessions, or business assets (money on paper). However you play it, you are now in a wonderful position. You can take the raw materials and do so much more. It’s rather like having a bumper crop in the orchard and taking it as far as you can go – not only to market, but also into the pantry, and back into the garden for 2015 delights. Astrology is just life gardening. This is about an asset, or about money rather than apples – but the principle is exactly the same.


aquarius

Aquarius: 28 July-3 August

Aquarius, you are about to experience a thunderbolt – and rather a good one  - which will utterly change the way you see a former, current or potential partner. The world is about to become a bigger and better place, and this important man – or crucial woman – is the agent of change. What you hear, read or discuss close to this weekend is the turning point, and it really is time you relaxed into the new atmosphere of hope and optimism. Frankly, nothing else will do, because unless you are proactive and positive, you are not going to feel the full benefit of what this cycle can do for you, emotionally, spiritually, sexually or psychologically. The Seventh House, where we find Jupiter this week, is also about your great enemy, rival or opponent. How very peculiar that someone like this can actually benefit you  - but it is absolutely true – this cloud on two legs is basically one big, fat silver lining waiting to happen.


pisces

Pisces: 28 July-3 August

Pisces, although I will be in London by the time you read this, I am actually writing it in Melbourne, the home of the Eight Hour Movement. There is even a statue commemorating this famous victory for working people, who demanded a 24 hour day composed of 8 hours to work, 8 hours to rest and 8 hours to play. It sounds like an advertisement for a Mars Bar, but your horoscope this week has nothing to do with Mars and everything to do with Jupiter. The planet Jupiter is about expansion, growth, optimism and empire-building, and as the weekend draws closer, you will be in a position to have your own Eight Hour Movement and pursue something so much better and bigger. This applies no matter if you work for yourself, work for a corporation, or are engaged in full-time study or voluntary roles. The missing jigsaw piece is your body – and your relationship with your physical self. Time to build a new picture.

Your Horoscope July 21 through 27

Astrologer’s Diary

First, a special note on some June predictions about airlines made in this section of the website, in the wake of the recent tragedy. As you will see in this feature I did struggle with publishing this – or not – but I have now chosen to post this for you to read (especially those of you asking me questions about the tragedy on Twitter). Find it at The Astrology Blog now.

This New Moon in Leo on Saturday 26th July is the most important New Moon of 2014, even though it comes very late. Why? Because when the Sun and Moon conjunct at 3 Leo 51 on Saturday at 11.41pm in London, Jupiter in Leo will finally show his face. This weekend will see a welcome  factor in headlines about babies, children and young adults. Leo rules UNICEF and it also rules children’s culture and entertainment (famous children’s authors J.K.Rowling, Enid Blyton and Beatrix Potter were born with the Sun in Leo). We will see results in the media just a few days before and after July 26th, but the final six months of 2014 is pretty easy to call. You would expect J.K.Rowling (Leo, symbol of childhood and children) to make a stunning comeback. You would expect UNICEF to skyrocket with new energy. And with this New Moon in Leo, the royal sign, the British Royal Family is also on course for a relaunch. Leo not only rules heirs and dynasties (the next generation who inherit our legacy) it also very properly rules Queens and Kings.

aries

Aries: 21-27 July 2014

Aries, an awful lot is going to change very quickly this week. Saturn is now direct in Scorpio, which rules your money, house, business, precious possessions, apartment and charity interests. You are now in a position to get real, rapidly, about what needs to be done. The arrival of Mars in Scorpio on Saturday 26th July at 3.24am is another accelerator. Just be aware that your strategy needs to cover you until Tuesday 23rd December. That’s how long Saturn hangs around for. No matter how tempting it may be to assume that the financial or property priorities are a ‘now’ decision for late July-August, you could scupper your chances if you go in too hard and too fast. Play the long game. You also need to take advantage of superb trends for discussion or paperwork involving your family or household – or relevant to your house, flat, home town or homeland. You’re on track for some breakthrough agreements near Friday 25th July. I am leaving the best until last. This is the most superb time for your relationship with the children, godchildren or younger family members. It’s an amazing time for roles involving the next generation, born 20 years after you. A relationship which may end in pregnancy, step-parenting or adoption will also deliver the goods for many of you. Shine on you crazy diamond.


taurus

Taurus: 21-27 July 2014

Taurus, it’s amazing how a shift in the heavens can send your horoscope into warp speed. Even though the house, apartment, home town, homeland, family or household may not have been on your agenda in the first six months of 2014, it certainly is now. If you know your personal horoscope and you have heavenly bodies in Cancer, you can double that message. This is an opportunity like no other, in terms of the biggest and best outcomes for your place, or your people. The New Moon late on Saturday night (London time) is your cue to commit completely to moving, improving your home, deepening the relationship with your town or country, making the family the priority or developing the connection with flatmates. Perhaps the impetus for all this is your former, current or potential partner. Maybe anyone who is against you could also be a trigger. You certainly have some decisions to make (long overdue) about this crucial man or woman in your life, yet timing is everything. No matter how heated or urgent the atmosphere becomes after Saturday 26th July, try to think in terms of the next six months, not the next six days. You must plot and plan as carefully as Churchill, because if you rush this, then you will pay the price between now and Christmas. Put a ban on impulse now.


gemini

Gemini: 21-27 July 2014

Gemini, you must be feeling so much better after the end of that epic Mercury Retrograde in your sign (and to make matters worse, Mercury is also your planetary ruler). I also suspect that you are overjoyed to see your plans and projects coming together, giving you a mouthpiece for your thoughts, or a salivating internet audience for your concepts and ideas. What happens near Thursday 24th July and Saturday 26th July is a vindication of your belief in yourself. You have always known that you were put on this planet to connect and communicate and here is the chance of a lifetime. With your ruler Mercury now swiftly moving through your finance, business, charity and property horoscope I also suspect there is some useful talking to do, or paperwork to complete, near Friday. The only challenge? After Saturday, when Mars changes signs, you must dedicate more time, space and thought to your daily workload and also your relationship with your body. You have to get serious, now, as you have not been serious for months. Refuse to be rushed, pushed or pressured – and try not to play hardball either. You need a well thought-out plan for your lifestyle, work situation, body and so on – one that takes you securely from August to Christmas, when this endlessly demanding cycle will end.


cancer

Cancer: 21-27 July 2014

Cancer, it often takes a New Moon to trigger a Jupiter transit for you, because you are ruled by the Moon. Look up at the night sky this weekend of July 26th-27th and bless your horoscope for this brilliant new beginning in your life, which will make such a huge difference to everything you own, earn or owe. You may be looking for a way out of a debt, or just for a huge chance to accumulate and profit – but the peak moments near Thursday 24th July and Saturday 26th July should send you on your way. All those image, brand and name issues which were so delayed or unresolved only weeks ago will also be forgotten, as you use the trends near Friday 25th July to articulate what you think and feel, and obtain the answers you need; this applies to the real world as well as the internet. It only remains for you to tackle the one, outstanding issue in the too-hard basket. This remains your son, daughter, godchild or young relative. The pursuit of a pregnancy, adoption or child custody. The project that involves much younger people, through to small infants. This is where you must now take a deep breath and refuse to be harried. Once Mars changes signs on Saturday, it would be so easy to be prodded, pushed or provoked. Or even to do some prodding yourself. That way lies difficulty, though, because this is not something that will blow over in a week or two. You must live with unavoidable realities until Christmas so please try to avoid setting up a situation which is more arduous than it has to be. Make a plan. A six-month plan. A good one.


leo

Leo: 21-27 July 2014

Leo, the final week of July makes up for so much. Where do we begin? For the first time in 12 years Jupiter is in Leo, your own sign, and not only that, he forms a spectacular conjunction with the Sun on Thursday 24th. On Saturday 26th we also have a New Moon in Leo. If your birthday falls on, or close to, that date then this is a personal relaunch for you. What does it mean to have Jupiter and the New Moon in the sign of the lion? It crystallises your reputation as a leader, mentor or guide to others. As a shining example of who to be, and what to admire. For a great many people born under Leo, this ‘finest hour’ moment will involve children, young relatives or godchildren. Youth projects and young people’s interests and needs. Relationships which may usher in parenthood. The Sun works as a spotlight in astrology so there is no question that your name or face will be showcased in the most remarkable way at this time. What else is going on? Rather a lot. Unresolved or unfinished business involving your life behind the scenes, or a secret concern, will be wrapped up near Friday 25th July. Crucially, you must also get real about your house or apartment. Your family or household. Your home town or homeland. Saturn’s change of direction last week, and the arrival of Mars in Scorpio on Saturday, suggests an urgent need for a six-month strategy which acknowledges the things you cannot change – but honours the need for some kind of policy or strategy. Craft it carefully and at no point speed up or heat up. If you are undertaking some kind of new commitment with all of the above, be very canny about the possible risk of conflict. Do you really need it?


virgo

Virgo: 21-27 July 2014

Well, Virgo, you must be pleased to see your ruler Mercury is now over his retrograde phase. What was such a complex or unsatisfied issue with your old friend, or the group, will be stitched up quite neatly near Friday 25th July, when Mercury makes three aspects in a single day, enabling you to obtain signatures, sign your name, reach agreement or finally get a straight answer. What else is happening now? A truly unusual trend in your horoscope. You are being shown, quite clearly, that sometimes the best thing you can do is get out of the way and allow others to be the focus. Operating at a distance or being the wind beneath somebody else’s wings is a seriously good idea given the dizzy heights you could reach this week. It’s rather like being the director on a BAFTA-winning television series. The actors get the attention but you get the trophy. There is another alternative source of joy now too. Not so much being Miss or Mr Invisible, but plunging yourself into the deepest secrets and the most clandestine or confidential matters. This is your Bletchley Park moment and you are Alan Turing. What you do, submerged from view, will end up being one of the biggest and best achievements of the year. All that remains is to warn you about the internet, the media, publishing, your computer, your phone and all communication issues. This is no big deal, but please slow down after Saturday. You need to draw on all your famous method and order to deal with a situation which does not call for impulse, but calls for thought.


libra

Libra: 21-27 July 2014

Libra, you are about to receive some stunning good karma for the energy you invested in a group project or a very old friendship (perhaps both) in 2002 and 2003. This friend or group may be back in your life in a big way, very close to Thursday 24th July or Saturday 26th July. In other cases, you are not going back quite so far into the past, but you are definitely gaining from the epic good fortune that comes from being part of a particular circle, network or team. Within its ranks there is a true friend who has just become a wonderful priority for you. This is a sociable time of year, no matter if you are on the beach or on the ski slopes. The whole planet wants to circulate right now, because of the incredible new energy coming from Jupiter’s entry into Leo. Thus, when invitations are offered, you must accept. The new friends you make or groups you join as a result of these invitations will change your life. What else is going on now? A major amber light warning for your money, house, business, apartment, charity or possessions. You may want to respond to the green light after Saturday by ramming your foot on the accelerator. Don’t go there Libra. You must think about August through December, not just the present. By Christmas there will be no more issues to weigh you down, but if you want to have a relatively easy time from this point forwards, you will deliberately remove any potential for antagonism, no matter if you are casting the first stone or someone else is hurling it your way. The other fascinating turning point now? Your career or other role in life. After so much faffing around or delay, near Friday 25th it’s time to talk, sign or shake hands.


scorpio

Scorpio: 21-27 July 2014

Scorpio, if there is another Scorpio (born late October through late November) in your workplace, university or voluntary sphere, then this will be a remarkable week of reshuffles and recognition. No matter who you are working with, or for, this is one of the most important turnings points for your CV in years. Soon after the Sun-Jupiter conjunction on Thursday 24th July, you must use all the feedback you receive to make the ultimate smart choice about your position, mission, title, role or ambition. This will come very close to Saturday 26th July at the New Moon in Leo, right on the midheaven of your solar chart. If you need protection you will get it. If you have been looking for a way out you will have it. If you only ever wanted to be at the top of the mountain, you will be offered a ladder. What else is going on this week? Perhaps this is part of the success story. Very close to Friday 25th July dialogue will open up about your foreign, travel, internet, publishing, educational or religious agenda. To date nothing has been fully resolved, but now you can pursue your priorities and make use of the opportunities and solutions you were thrown earlier. The week ends with a reminder from Mars in Scorpio. Even though you are weary of the waiting game where your reputation, image or personal appearance is concerned, you must on no account rush at things like a bull at a gate. After Saturday the ‘me’ issues will no doubt trigger all kinds of impulses, but unless you want a tough six months ahead, you will cleverly sidestep heat and action in favour of a cerebral approach. Take a breath. Step back. Analyse this. Your issues will be gone by Christmas, anyway.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 21-27 July 2014

Sagittarius, the sheer pace of events this week is breathtaking, but along with everyone else on the planet, you have needed the final week of July for a very long time. Close to Thursday 25th and Saturday 26th you will realise how much is possible across your country, Australasia, Europe or the U.S.A. Perhaps you need to travel further or even relocate to get the most from the situation. Maybe you just need to travel in the mind and use new internet options. In any case, this cultural exchange or global plug-in is made for you; you never really come into your own unless you are fulfilling your potential as a world citizen. Tied into this stunning week of expansion and growth, comes the possibility of teaching, studying, writing, publishing or pursuing your particular beliefs. What else is going on now? A really welcome turning point with your money, house, flat, business, charity or precious possessions, near Friday 25th July. The paperwork or discussion will be there, in the right shape at last – or you can do the math. The only real concern in your chart now is the dark secret you are covering up, or the invisible role you are playing behind the scenes. You are now dealing with the all-too-real realities, and after Saturday you will also have some provocative situation to deal with. Be highly strategic if you can. Nothing will be over quickly if you just give in to your need to push, prod, provoke or pressure. More P words – plot, plan, peruse.


capricorn

Capricorn: 21-27 July 2014

Capricorn, at last you can settle things with your former, current or potential partner – and in many ways, take advantage of seeds you planted in the final six months of 2013 or the first six months of 2014. To date it has been difficult to get the situation under full, firm and final control, yet you should be intellectually satisfied by the weekend, and also content with the way you have articulated everything you think and feel. Communication, not emotion, is sometimes all that is required. If you have an enemy, opponent or rival then events near Friday should also allow you to draw a firm line under a chapter that – weirdly – helped you so much. What else is showing up in your chart now? Quite clearly, you have a happy new beginning to make near Saturday 26th July which will utterly change the way you see your money, house, business, charity, apartment or precious possessions. This is the gift that goes on giving if you manage it correctly. Why? Because in 12 years’ time Jupiter will return to Leo, the sign which rules your wealth, security and lifestyle and if you invest even the smallest amount of money, time, energy or faith this week, you will shore up your future as well. The deepest concern in your life now should actually be your social life, group involvement, social network or old friendship. No matter what happens to change the atmosphere after Saturday, don’t take the bait from Mars. This planet is the red planet, as you may know, and remembering to keep the traffic light red (or at least amber) will help you come up with a master plan next week. You are going to need a way of dealing with this person, or these people, which gets you to Christmas.


aquarius

Aquarius: 21-27 July 2014

Aquarius, if you are one of the few people born under your sign to also have heavenly bodies in Leo then this week is as much about your son, daughter, stepchild or extended family of young relatives – as it is about your partner. No matter what your personal horoscope looks like, though, this week will utterly change the way you see your former, current or potential lovers. It’s not just the feedback, attention, curiosity and reaction (all eyes and ears will be pointed in your direction). It’s also the insights you gain about the chemistry you two share, or the very particular alchemy you have with this fated man or woman in your life. You need the mirror held up to both your faces, in order to clearly see what is reflected there and make a decision that will only benefit you, for months to come (and even repay you in 12 years’ time). Perhaps you look lucky to others. Maybe you look like the right person, in the right place, at the right time – especially near Thursday 24th July. In truth, though, the new beginning you make near Saturday 26th July is also about your good judgement. The outcomes with a Jupiter transit of the Seventh House are less important than the inner meaning of the transit. You can meet the love of your life this week or get married. You can reconcile with your ex. You can also separate or get a divorce. You can plan a child, a new home or a big trip with a partner. What you need, Jupiter will deliver. What you deserve, Jupiter will give. What else is going on now? An urgent need for a strategy which addresses the factors you cannot change about your career or other role in life. Mars will turn up the heat and increase the speed after Saturday but impulsive moves are a bad idea, particularly next week, when you are back at work. This is like playing Grandmother’s Footsteps. Tiptoe forward, give yourself until Christmas to be stoic and admirable – then prepare to exhale once the decorations go down and the snow has stopped falling. That’s literally how long you have to practise fancy footwork Aquarius, but you can do it. Don’t blow it. I suspect the news, discussion or paperwork that rolls near Friday 25th July is a big part of the equation so ask a lot of questions.


pisces

Pisces: 21-27 July 2014

Pisces, if you are a regular reader of this website, you will notice that some weeks have a long write-up, compared to others. This is one such week, because it will change your lifestyle for the better. Essentially, you have 24 hours in a day, as you know, and you can compose those hours any way you please. To date you have lacked luck. Without luck you have nothing. All that is about to change, though, as you are visibly the right person, in the right place, at the right time – and you will see why near Thursday 24th July. You are well-known for submerging yourself. For operating beneath the surface, where the world can neither see you, nor truly access you. What happens this week will vindicate that. At last you can work or study (part-time or full-time) and create space to vanish from view. If your instincts tell you that what you need is a secret project or a confidential plan, then perhaps that should be on the agenda too. Of course, we are all hamstrung by our employers, or the demands of our chosen fields. Yet, something about your horoscope on Saturday 26th July suggests that you can now co-create a superior way to work, study or volunteer. The relationship you have with your body is part of the story. In fact, from this week forward, you will never separate mind, body and spirit again. No matter if you want to resolve issues or just pursue your ‘temple’ in a brilliant new way, this weekend is the turning point. What else spins your horoscope now? There is a final, satisfying chapter involving your children, godchildren or young relatives near Friday 25th July. This also applies to relationships which may end in parenthood, or projects involving young people. The main concern in your entire chart is your travel, foreign, publishing or educational agenda. There are still no fast or easy solutions here, and you need to watch yourself like a hawk. Do not succumb to ‘first thought, best thought’ reactions after Saturday, as what you set up next week could be a really heavy burden to carry until Christmas. Be a realist about this. Strategise.
