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.

Your Horoscope July 14 through 20

Astrologer’s Diary

Jupiter enters Leo at 11.30am (London time) on Wednesday 16th July. Leo is the sign to be associated with the British royal family and the dynasty is set to change from that point forward, peaking with a suitably regal drama at the Leo New Moon near Saturday 26th July. There is an entire generation born with Pluto in Leo, who will be at the heart of global changes for all kinds of monarchies, and what takes place this week lays the tracks for a very different Commonwealth. Watch the news items trickle in from Wednesday.

aries

Aries: 14-20 July 2014

Aries, the future announces itself in all kinds of subtle and small ways this week, but within weeks, you will be confirming a pregnancy for yourself, a close family member or a friend – alternatively there may be a huge period of growth for your son, daughter, godchild or young relative. Adoption, step-parenting and jobs involving younger people are all part of this pattern in your chart and you can expect sensational news by the end of July with many of the clues emerging after Jupiter changes signs on Wednesday. Any new relationship which comes along at this time seems very likely to end in pregnancy, step-parenthood, fostering or adoption.


taurus

Taurus: 14-20 July 2014

Taurus you will be booking a removal truck by September if you are committed to the idea of a bigger or better home. In other cases you will be amazed at how quickly, easily and affordably you can renovate or decorate, with plans confirmed by the end of July. If you have had problems with property investments or maintenance then solutions will soon appear. This new transit of the IC of your horoscope also pulls in family or household turning points. You will see the family expand within weeks, thanks to a new baby, the return of a relative to the fold or the addition of a potential new in-law. Any problems with your clan will be cleaned up in this cycle.


gemini

Gemini: 14-20 July 2014

Gemini, you must make time and space for your book, website, blog, course, media commitment, publishing ambition or writing dreams. There has never been a better time (in 12 years) and what happens in a slow and subtle way this week has a larger part to play by the end of July, when you will make a brilliant new beginning. Your way with words, images or ideas has never been in question and even at primary school or junior school level you shone brightly in subjects like English, Languages or Speech and Drama. Now you must pursue a larger audience for your thoughts and feelings, and find the perfect medium or technology to express yourself.


cancer

Cancer: 14-20 July 2014

Cancer, considering you survived the crazy years when Neptune was in Aquarius, accompanied by Uranus in Aquarius, you are now owed a long stretch of financial, property or business security. It will be remarkably easy to eliminate debts in the new cycle that begins this week, or to accumulate in an epic way, if you are already ahead of the game. It may be a matter of being the right person in the right place, at the right time; certainly this Jupiter cycle could benefit you through generous foreign exchange rates, useful property price swings, beneficial sharemarket trends and so on. The precise outcome is down to your personal chart but as you will see by the end of July you are now in a position to save or make money (or cash in kind) in an unprecedented way.


leo

Leo: 14-20 July 2014

Leo, the arrival of Jupiter in your own sign after an absence of over a decade is the only excuse you need to relaunch. You may not even have to raise a paw; the world may come to you, so be prepared. Tremendous image and reputation boosters are coming and by the end of this month you will be given a far more public role or handed a title or position which adds lustre to your persona. The First House of the horoscope, where we now find Jupiter, also describes your personal appearance. If you have any issues about the way you look or appear, exactly the right solution will emerge, with clues this week. It is now officially Year of the Leo, starting midweek.


virgo

Virgo: 14-20 July 2014

Virgo, what you stumble across this week, in the smallest way, becomes bigger by the end of the month. It will become clear that you have to function very much behind the scenes, as the invisible force behind a particular person, place or project. That is fine and you should show willing; as you will see by this time next year, what you commit to now will take you on an epic and wonderful new journey. Another very likely scenario this week is an utterly confidential, classified and secret chapter which begins with just a few hopeful sentences, after Wednesday. What emerges from this by September is exceptional. Sometimes all you need is a secret.


libra

Libra: 14-20 July 2014

Libra you will gain enormously from a group project where you can make new friends and contacts, many with foreign backgrounds, enabling you to widen your goals and pursue something very special to you. Old friendships which are back on your radar, along with old or revived group endeavours, are also looking exceptionally promising. It doesn’t really matter if this is a book club, charity project, football team or political party; you must follow your instincts and get as deeply involved as others wish you to be. Your social life is set to expand and improve enormously from this point forward. Network your head off. You will not regret a moment.


scorpio

Scorpio: 14-20 July 2014

Scorpio, this is the cycle known as the problem-solver so if you are feeling trapped or burdened by your job, you will be astonished at how quickly and easily things resolve from this week forward. A promotion or new position will be offered to a high percentage of Scorpio people within two months; if this sounds like you, then you have every right to be optimistic. You are now in the kind of cycle when success depends on recognising the key to a special door, but also using it. You need to be proactive, but the thunderbolt that arrives midweek is perfectly timed. Use the moment to move on up, professionally, academically or on the social status scale. Swing!


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 14-20 July 2014

Sagittarius, this has been a long time coming, but you are about to be returned unto yourself. In other words, you are coming back to the person you were always meant to be; the traveller; the writer; the student; the teacher; the publisher; the world citizen. The internet will play its own special part in proceedings but you are very likely to have your plan to travel or move locked in by the end of the month and you can spread your wings wider than ever before. Even if the travel must be done vicariously via Twitter or a chain of European, Asian or American websites, you will still find a door opens to a substantial trip in 2015 as a result. Thunderbirds are go.


capricorn

Capricorn: 14-20 July 2014

Capricorn, given that you had years of Uranus and Neptune in your financial, property and business sector you are now owed some karmic rewards. Jupiter in Leo is here to advance your cause and the change in atmosphere is palpable this week. Feeling more optimistic about the future is just part of the battle. What you really need is the dumb-luck factor which can only arrive through this Jupiter transit, and you should be thrilled at the new beginning that emerges at the end of the month. You can now translate abundance into non-financial areas like property or precious possessions, or just chase the euro, pound or dollar – but you’ll gain.


aquarius

Aquarius: 14-20 July 2014

Aquarius if you are single and want a date, the right person to expand your mind will appear at any point after Wednesday and you may be with someone who has horoscope factors in Sagittarius, or just a strong background with another country – or in academia. If you are happily married or in a relationship the partnership will move forward almost of its own accord, with amazing new chapters possible at the end of July, in August and September. You two are quite right to have faith in a bigger, better future. Bad relationships or marriages can be repaired, in many cases, or just ditched in an amicable way, ahead of fresh opportunities for you to date in 2015. A small minority of Aquarians have zero interest in love or sex, but channel their need for partnership through a work duet. If this sounds like you, then this pairing will take off in amazing new directions – or there may be a brand new business partnership shortly.


pisces

Pisces: 14-20 July 2014

Pisces you will improve the quality of your daily working life from this point forward either by accepting new roles and projects which are superior to the old way of life – or by happily taking on board changes with your existing employer or university. This is a fascinating new phase not possible in 12 years as you decide to reshape the 24 hours in your day, upgrading the way you sleep, work, exercise, relax and look after your body. The right person, organisation or resources will appear from this week forward and by the end of July you will have exactly what you need to make a big new beginning. By 2015 you will be amazed at how the tiny details of your daily routine can provide the biggest rewards and benefits, so don’t hesitate to open every door which is now in front of you.

Your Horoscope July 7 through 13

Astrologer’s Diary

First up, a true prediction from last week – turns out 4th July was the exact day mortgage companies made headlines. This is the link to the Wall Street Journal article and you can read the original prediction by scrolling down the page.

Now to the future. The Full Buck Moon takes place on Saturday 12th July at 12.24pm in London. The Sun stands at 20 Cancer 03 and the Moon is opposite at 20 Capricorn 03. The sign Cancer rules property and mortgages and interestingly, the following day, Sunday 13th July Mercury will complete his retrograde path through Cancer as well. This all adds up to major instability and change around global housing markets with specific focus on the mortgage lending industry. Does it work for us? Yes it does. Jupiter is also in Cancer (though not for much longer) so even the challenges are there for a productive reason. What we may see, close to July 14th, is a total rewrite of a situation dating back to June, which helps raise property prices for home-owners who can enjoy seeing their investment skyrocket – and dramatically drop mortgage interest rates for people wanting to get their foot on the property ladder. Fascinating!

aries

Aries: 7-13 July 2014

Aries, this is like a grand finale in terms of the family, the household, your house, flat, home town or homeland. You have been offered the most incredible protection, help and luck since this time last year and now the cycle is closing. The discussion, news or paperwork which unfolds any time after Sunday 13th is part of a replay, rewrite or rethink which allows you to leave things in a good place. What else matters now? This Full Moon falls partly in Capricorn, which rules your ambition, mission and position. What fails to add up is actually useful. What is incomplete or imperfect is productive. It spurs you on, and you really do need a brand new approach soon.


taurus

Taurus: 7-13 July 2014

Taurus, you were given opportunities and solutions through the internet, media, publishing, language education or spoken-word options in a neat chain over a 12-month period. Now the chain is ending, but not before you consciously use Sunday 13th July and the opening days of next week. Even if you sat on your hands since July last year you still stand to gain, even this late in the piece. The Full Moon this weekend emphasises just how much you need to pull everything together with your foreign, internet, travel, publishing or academic agenda. Use what you have learned since 2008 and apply it. You clearly need a big direction change here.


gemini

Gemini: 7-13 July 2014

Gemini, this week is basically about everything you own, earn or owe. The money, house, business, charity, possessions or apartment. Your ruler Mercury will now retrace his steps, and therefore the news, discussion or paperwork will be pivotal, at any point from Sunday through the middle of next week. There may be a replay or rethink, or missing parts of the jigsaw will come to light. In many ways you have been protected, helped and guided since this time last year. That magic force field is now slowly fading, but you do have a few clear days to articulate your thoughts and feelings, or at least to express it in numbers. One thing you must clearly put a price on is your own empowerment, but also a more comfortable feeling about having a very particular kind of control.


cancer

Cancer: 7-13 July 2014

Cancer, this Full Moon affects you more than the other 11 signs of the zodiac as you are ruled by the Moon. It is also here to remind you that there are no perfect or whole answers when it comes to your former, current or potential partner. Enemies too. All you can really do is pursue a more creative solution or a lateral thinking approach. This week also sees a last-minute focus on your look, image, brand, name or appearance. It’s never too late to use a quick Mercury transit through Cancer, and even though this is essentially a rewrite or a replay of a situation dating from May or June, you still stand to gain. It’s game on from Sunday so use it.


leo

Leo: 7-13 July 2014

Leo, you have been consciously choosing to operate at a distance, either because modesty will not allow you to absorb the spotlight on a particular project, or because you don’t want the attention. There is a third possibility and that is that others’ names or faces provide a useful smokescreen. This epic cycle now draws to a close, but not before there is a flurry of talk, news or paperwork, commencing at any point after Sunday. Life will feel utterly different by this time next week and you can look back on 2013-2014 with a growing understanding of what you gained by hiding, hibernating, keeping secrets or operating behind the scenes. What else goes on this week? A decisive Full Moon pushes you to a crossroads in terms of your daily workload and relationship with your body. Choose!


virgo

Virgo: 7-13 July 2014

Virgo, the weekend Full Moon (look up and you will see it) coaxes you into a more honest discussion with yourself. Your son, daughter, godchild or young relative is at the heart of this inner debate – or perhaps you have a role involving younger people. Relationships which beckon conversations about pregnancy, adoption or step-parenting also qualify. In all cases you need to remember what happens when you give away your power to something – or someone – which you assume runs you, or runs your life. This is nonsense, and it takes a Full Moon to show you. What else is going on this week? A last hurrah involving an old friendship or group endeavour. This team or tribe has done so much for you. Now, one final pivotal conversation or piece of news must unfold.


libra

Libra: 7-13 July 2014

Libra, your road to success has taken you on a most peculiar journey since this time last year. If you had a problem then it has now been swept away. If you wanted to succeed in a different field, you have done that. Now, with Mercury moving into Cancer on the weekend, you appear to have a re-run, a second edit or a final ‘take’ on the ongoing film of your life. You may work, volunteer or study but in many ways the key to Sunday – and the early part of next week – is to look beyond labels and titles and to straight to the core of what success actually means to you. The other story this week concerns your house, flat, family, household, home town and/or homeland. Lean heavily on lessons you absorbed since 2008 as you are clearly on the cusp of one of the year’s most crucial decisions.


scorpio

Scorpio: 7-13 July 2014

Scorpio, a Full Moon is always dramatic, no matter if you view it through a telescope or above a rooftop. This weekend’s Full Moon takes place in Cancer and Capricorn, two signs which are indelibly associated with the internet; with the media; with publishing. Beyond that there are issues about global communication and understanding which goes beyond language barriers or cultural differences. There may be associated concerns with schools or universities, or the world of books and ideas. This Full Moon is here to prod, provoke and push you. Productively so! You should also be ready for the most remarkable turnaround with your foreign, internet, travel, publishing or academic agenda, starting on Sunday and continuing into the early part of next week. Time to talk.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 7-13 July 2014

Sagittarius, the financial, business, charity and property axis of your horoscope is heavily accented this week. You have choices to make and (real) costs to calculate. This goes way beyond what the market value of a particular company, precious possession, deal, house or apartment might be. It extends beyond questions about monetary value, expressed through debts or gains. What is now required is some deeper soul-searching than usual, and the Full Moon above your head this weekend is an epic reminder of just how weighty some questions are. In many ways you have been divinely protected and helped since this time last year, but there is still time to do a calculation in your favour. What money cannot buy – peace of mind, integrity, freedom – is where the abacus must rest.


capricorn

Capricorn: 7-13 July 2014

Capricorn, this decisive, dramatic Full Moon will give you total focus on your former, current or potential partner – and not before time. You have had an intriguing twelve months, full of protection and possibility, and now this cycle is drawing to a close. There is a replay, or a piece of re-routed information, ahead. From Sunday through to the early days of next week you are going to be in the odd position of drawing a line under a discussion or piece of paperwork that you assumed was resolved some weeks before. You stand to gain in any case. This also applies to enemies, opponents or rivals. Strangely enough, anyone who is against you is actually for you, even though they do not know it, and would no doubt shudder at the thought! The other theme this week? It’s you. The way you look and appear. You have learned an awful lot in the last six years so review what you now know to be true and put it into effect.


aquarius

Aquarius: 7-13 July 2014

Aquarius, you have a brief few days (commencing this Sunday) to address your lifestyle, daily workload and relationship with your body – and gain from being in the right place, at the right time, surrounded by the right people. Use this final opportunity to either go further, or to solve issues. It will necessarily involve a ‘part two’ for a story that began some weeks ago but has never been finished nor resolved. The other turning point this week concerns the dark secret you are covering up or the invisible role you play without credit. Total resolution and complete perfection is absolutely impossible on a Full Moon. Something about yourself, the situation or the people concerned will not add up. This is a spur to action, though. And you do need to make another one of ‘those’ decisions.


pisces

Pisces: 7-13 July 2014

Pisces, what happens in terms of your son, daughter, godchild or young relative after Sunday could turn things around in your favour in just a few short days. This also applies to projects involving younger people or relationships which may bring pregnancy, adoption or step-parenting to your door. A rather odd situation will unfold after Sunday and into the early stages of next week where a story which began some weeks ago will either be rewritten, edited or erased, yet you will gain. The Full Moon in Capricorn this weekend reminds you to be far more ruthless about your old friendships, social media, team commitments or group involvements. Unless you take full and total control over yourself in the context of this, you will continue to feel as if someone or something else is running you!

Your Horoscope June 30 through July 6

Astrologer’s Diary

This is the week that fills in the gaps on all media and internet stories running since May. Both these industries are ruled by Gemini. Short-haul flights are also ruled by this sign. Mercury retracing his steps in this sign from Tuesday July 1st is going to give non-astrologers good reasons to take this ancient timing device more seriously; turns out nothing from May or June was in the bag at all! The Sun’s opposition to Pluto takes place on Friday 4th July when we can expect headlines on mortgage companies – all is revealed.

Filed June 18th.

aries

Aries: 30 June-6 July 2014

Aries, your zone of internet, media, publishing and communication (computer, phone, spoken word) is vulnerable to Mercury’s change of direction. He is of course the messenger of the gods, and when he moves direct from 1st July you are going to thank your horoscope for having given you so much advance notice of the changes, mistakes or ‘life episode rewrites’ now surrounding you. We also have a couple of Pluto transits near Thursday and Friday in your zone of career, success, ambition and achievement. Is this the turning point? It could be, if you realise that the balance of power has to work in a practical way; it has to suit all the players.


taurus

Taurus: 30 June-6 July 2014

Taurus, you read your horoscope regularly so you’ve been well ahead of the game in terms of your money, business, possessions, house or apartment. Having alternative plans and back-ups now proves to have been a very smart move indeed, yet you should remain vigilant as the incoming news or the big change to the story this week is not the end of the discussion. There is more to come and there may be further alterations or u-turns, with plenty of room for phone, postal or computer issues for good measure. Be aware of that when you are talking or planning. The week ends with a sharp reminder from Pluto in Capricorn that unless you actively control some aspect of your travel, internet, foreign, publishing or academic agenda, you actually end up being controlled yourself.


gemini

Gemini: 30 June-6 July 2014

Gemini, Mercury now goes forward through your sign, which is the cue for a total rethink of your name, look, image, style or brand – and not for the first time, either. Ever since Mercury began his crazy criss-cross trajectory in May, your profile or actual name (printed or signed) has been at the heart of much room for delay, muddle or befuddlement. Just because your ruler is moving direct does not mean the issues go away, so please don’t be fooled by some other astrology columns giving you the all-clear. Au contraire, you need to keep on checking the fine print, the digital imprints of your name and so on. The week closes with a striking Sun-Pluto opposition which articulates for you, just how much the house, the flat, the money, the possessions or the business has become a cipher for power questions, or concerns about the control you do or do not have. Dig deeply for answers beyond mere numbers.


cancer

Cancer: 30 June-6 July 2014

Cancer, I will begin your week at the very end, because that Sun-Pluto opposition is quite dramatic and it will draw your attention to the one thing you need to change about your partnership. This applies to former partners or potential partners too; there are constant concerns about who or what is in control, yet it takes a stunning opposition like this one to clearly reveal the ‘me’ issues along with the ‘he’ or ‘we’ or ‘she’ issues. They are poles apart at the moment and yet you need to take the mechanics of the situation apart in order to progress. This also applies to your great rival, enemy or opponent (if this is where your energy is channelled right now). One suspects that what happens near Friday is a motivator for you. The rest of the week is about the classic Mercury Retrograde mess and muddle which surrounds any secret you may be keeping or any uncredited role you are playing behind the scenes. Fortunately you read your horoscope regularly so you’ve covered yourself for this state of flux since May and made advance plans.


leo

Leo: 30 June-6 July 2014

Leo, there are some power and control questions about your boss, staff, colleague, classmates, lecturer or client that you need to address. This is most likely near Friday when your ruler the Sun opposes Pluto and everything becomes very clear. This must seem like a business, industry, course or good cause which will never really settle down – quite true – yet you also have the precious prize of empowerment waiting if you can just stick with the people politics. The week as a whole is dominated by an old friendship or a group involvement, which you have known (since May) would be messy. Fortunately you have had Plan B since May, because you read your horoscope regularly, and you have also been aware of computer, post, phone or just plain communication issues. Stay vigilant because this friendship or team issue is still in motion – or rather, it is still in zig-zag motion – and you must work around that.


virgo

Virgo: 30 June-6 July 2014

Virgo, I am sure that you would give anything to sidestep the rather muddled and befuddling career situation surrounding you at the moment. This also applies to your special interests (those that define success for you) and your life as a student. Your ruler Mercury is changing direction, so a key player may very well change his or her mind too – affecting your project or role. On a larger scale we might see computer, weather, transport or travel issues having a domino effect on your chosen sphere of work, volunteering or study. Just be aware that the whole tangled ball of wool has been wound up since May, and it will take some time to untangle the knots. You also have a seismic shift in your understanding of a young relative, son, daughter or godchild. Alternatively the issue is a relationship where parenthood is a big talking point, or a wider involvement with a much younger generation. The shift which occurs near Friday helps deepen your appreciation of why arrangements must be practical, not just philosophical; this is after all, about naked power.


libra

Libra: 30 June-6 July 2014

Libra, I am glad you read your horoscope regularly as you will have known since May that you would be up for changes, reversals, delays or other difficult situations affecting your travel, foreign, publishing, internet or academic agenda. Mercury alters direction this week, moving forward over a sensitive spot in your horoscope where the best laid plans of mice and men end up like cheeseburgers. Knowing that a state of flux would be your state of play, you have wisely had Plan B all along or been prepared to navigate crazy paving rather than hope faintly for a straight line. What else is going on this week? Apart from knowing that normal transmission will not be resumed until mid July, you need to develop a more focussed approach to power and control issues. These have been there for the longest time with your household or family – perhaps even on a broader scale with your home town or homeland. The Sun-Pluto opposition on Friday is there to clarify and expose, so that you can make a long overdue judgement call.


scorpio

Scorpio: 30 June-6 July 2014

Scorpio, the moral of this story (and it is likely to be financial, business or vested in property) is that not everyone believes in astrology. Bankers and financiers may be the culprits, or perhaps you are dealing with large departments or institutions. Mercury’s change of direction is something you have known about for weeks as this website has flagged the dates since May. Fortunately you have been reading the fine print, allowing for a state of flux and also factoring in potential changes, delays or total rewrites. Between now and mid July there will be a lot of lost time to make up for; remain alert to the possibility of further u-turns or deadlocks too. The week ends with your ruler Pluto in opposition to the Sun. The fact is, unless you totally control and own the internet, the phone, the media, publishing – and so on – then some aspects of it will always own you! Uncomfortable truths surface to prod you into changes.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 30 June-6 July 2014

There is a useful Sun-Pluto clash on Friday stretching across the financial, property, business and charity axis of your chart. If you are one of those Sagittarians who also has a strong Scorpio chart signature then this is an overdue crossroads. Whatever your personal horoscope looks like, the time has come to be ruthlessly realistic about who (or what) you continually allow to dominate you. It may be a ‘thing’ (so a concept, like being rich or poor). It may be a bank (very likely) or even an entire government’s economic policy. In any case, the planetary clash on Friday is the only excuse you need to make a change. The other issue, and the one I should probably have addressed first, is the total lack of clarity and certainty with your former, current or potential partner. Alternatively you are channelling Mercury Retrograde through your enemy, rival or opponent. This was never going to be a swift one-episode drama for you. Fortunately you read your horoscope regularly so you have known that nothing was certain, since May. Keep talking. This conversation is like a ping-pong ball and it’s going to go backwards and forwards until you know exactly what game you’re playing.


capricorn

Capricorn: 30 June-6 July 2014

Capricorn, it takes some insight to take the elements of a partnership apart, and then put them back together in a more practical way. The Sun-Pluto clash on Friday is about your former, current or potential partner. Depending on how you have been channelling your energy, it may also be about an enemy, rival or opponent. To see this man or woman as others do, is a great gift. A separate, but connected issue, is your own persona, or profile. It may be all about the way you look, or just the way you appear – but it is probably time you were honest with yourself about what (or who) controls that. You know you’ve been a pushover for a long time, but which personalities, trends, elements, beliefs and so on have been pushing you over? And why have you let it happen? The other key story this week is Mercury’s change of direction. Fortunately you have been hip to this ongoing issue since May, when you first read your horoscope alerts about assuming nothing – at least where your daily workload or relationship with your body was concerned. The talking points are about to change again, so adopting a wait-and-see policy, or at least a Plan B, will turn out to be a smart move.


aquarius

Aquarius: 30 June-6 July 2014

Aquarius, if you treat your life like a novella, you can see how the first chapters of this saga involving the next generation (or the relationships which usher it in) were inked in during May. This generation, born 20 years or more after you, may affect you in an intensely personal way (understandable if you are a parent) or there may be a more nebulous association; a children’s charity for example, or a young adult demographic in your business. Since May, there might also have been a ‘novella’ about a relationship where parenthood is on the agenda. What happens this week sees you flicking back to earlier pages in this story, penned in May or June, and realising how right you were to allow for a second draft. There may even be a third draft by mid July. Fortunately you read your horoscope regularly so you have long been prepared. The other thing to note this week is the Pluto-Sun clash on Friday. Basically you need to step outside yourself and get some objectivity about something which you have been deliberately covering up from other people, or perhaps doing without any recognition, as you have effectively been submerged. Pluto is all about owning your own power. It looks as if you have been giving it away to something, or someone, that you assume is hard to beat. Not so. Time to get real.


pisces

Pisces: 30 June-6 July 2014

Pisces, you can now see how astrology works for you, as this ancient timing device is there to head off false starts, muddles or messy situations before they have a chance to take hold. As you read your horoscope regularly you have known since May that for some weeks, your family, house, flat, household, home town or homeland would be at the core of typical Mercury Retrograde shenanigans. This is unlikely to resolve any time soon as Mercury retraces his steps through Gemini, the sign which has rulership over your place and also your people. Having Plan B, way back when, will no doubt turn out to have been a very good idea. Keep on assuming that the first two weeks of July is time to talk (rather than pass final judgement) as it typically takes time for the chain-reaction of Mercury’s backward motion to stop. You will be amazed at how much clearer and more straightforward life becomes in the second half of July! The week ends with a decisive Sun-Pluto opposition. When will you cease to allow a particular friend or group to run you? It takes great insight to admit what has actually been going on, but insight you will have – the rest is down to sheer willpower.
