HOROSCOPES FOR JULY 18 TO JULY 24

By: MARY MORRISON

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

Your life seems to be moving forward rather rapidly at present, as Mercury, the planet of movement and communication, races through your sign. Sunday’s conjunction between the Moon and Neptune will bring out the visionary in you, inspiring you towards greater and better things. Pluto’s influence could lead you into some slight conflict with the establishment, in which case you are advised to think twice, on Monday, before wading in!

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

The Moon’s opposition to Venus on Saturday morning is likely to put you in a romantic frame of mind for the weekend, particularly if you happen to be unattached. You might even find yourself creating a masterpiece of sorts, as a result of Neptune’s influence, on Sunday! The Moon joins hands with Uranus on Tuesday, which could ignite a clash of opinion with partners where financial and legal matters are concerned.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

You are likely to be preoccupied with business and financial matters on Saturday and Sunday but that does not exclude you from taking a little time to have some good, old fashioned fun with the family. You have, after all, the whole of Monday to come up with a solution to allay your current business concerns. Tuesday’s Moon joins hands with the eccentric Uranus, giving rise to an unexpected encounter with an unusual person or situation (or both).

LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)

Your social life has probably picked up a bit in the last few days since your ruling planet, Venus, entered the sign of Leo. However, some of you might still have the feeling that you are experiencing the dips and troughs of a roller coaster. The Moon enters the sign of Pisces on Monday, which should help to even things out a bit. If you happen to be unattached, you could be lucky enough to meet someone special on Tuesday evening.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

You might feel irritated on Friday at the stubborn attitude of some but perhaps you should try a different approach by allowing yourself to be a little more flexible. Saturday is a good time to get rid of the tension from the previous week and let your hair down. Monday’s conflict between the Moon and Saturn should go a long way to preventing you from jumping into something that could turn out to be costly on your part.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

Friday’s Full Moon might encourage you to overspend on an item of luxury that you neither need nor can afford at this particular time. However, if you can be prudent for a while, you will reap the benefits a little later on in the year. Business is likely to be a bit on the slow side on Monday but Tuesday’s Moon joins hands with Uranus, which should liven things up considerably! Travel is probably on the agenda, following the Sun’s entry into the sign of Leo on Wednesday.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

You might come under fire from a partner on Friday’s Full Moon but you should not let it rattle you as misunderstandings are likely to arise throughout the day. The Moon joins hands with Neptune on Sunday and the atmosphere will become a lot friendlier, particularly for the unattached. The steadying hand of Saturn could pour cold water on your dreams and schemes, on Monday but at least you will have your feet on the ground, despite any feelings of melancholia.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

You seem to be just one step away from your goal but you might be hampered from crossing the finishing line by Friday’s Full Moon. If this is the case, you can rest assured that the end result will be even better than you had hoped; you only have to be patient! Neptune’s influence should have a calming effect on Sunday, giving you an opportunity to rest and replenish your overstretched mental faculties.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

There might be a bit of turbulence around your domain on Friday, particularly among younger family members, in which case, like it or not, your arbitration will be required! However, things are likely to calm down on Saturday to allow to you unwind a bit. A friend in need will appreciate your attention, on Monday, when it might be best not to hand out advice that could be misconstrued at a later date.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Things are likely to come to a head on Friday’s Full Moon, in your business and financial affairs, unless you have had the good sense to ensure that everything in that department is watertight. Nevertheless, you have the ability to think quickly on your feet and avert any impending disaster, so that, by Monday, you will, no doubt, have everything under control. Saturn is currently transiting your solar house of work and health which will ensure that you only reap that which you have sown.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

You will probably have to stand your ground on Friday, when the Full Moon ignites a lively debate on one’s territorial rights and someone is likely to take it to a point where it becomes rather personal. However, I am sure that you will come out on top by keeping your emotions under control. The Moon enters the sign of Aquarius on Friday evening, to smooth out your wrinkled brow and lower your blood pressure.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)

Your patience over the past few months is about to be rewarded and you can expect some compensation for all your efforts. I trust that you will enjoy a carefree weekend in the light of this information! Saturn’s influence should enable you to put the finishing touches to a deal and tie up any loose ends. Tuesday’s Moon is favourable for those who are unattached and looking for romance.
