Your Tarot Card of the Day for July 17th

Tarot Card of the Day

Judgment


The Judgement card, sometimes called “Resurrection,” represents the great reunion that the ancients believed would happen once in every age. This was the time when souls are harvested and taken home to their place of origin, outside the solar system. Then the world is seeded with a batch of new souls and the process starts over.

From a modern point of view, this great reunion — which includes every personality that you have ever been and every soul that you have done deep work with — reunites to consciously complete the process. In a way, we symbolically celebrate this returning to center every year on our birthday.

In personal terms, the Judgment Tarot card points to freedom from inner conflicts, and so clear a channel, that the buried talents and gifts of past incarnations can come through an individual in this lifetime. This card counsels you to trust the process of opening yourself, because what emerges is of consistently high quality. You can effortlessly manifest as a multi-dimensional being, and assist in evoking that response from others.

This Week’s Tarot Card Reading: Ace of Swords Reversed

This Week’s Tarot Card Reading: Ace of Swords Reversed

Your weekly Tarot card advice for July 16-22, 2018

When you really want something to happen, your instinct is often to do whatever it takes to make it so. This might very well lead to a victory, but the reversed Ace of Swords has a caution for you in such ventures this week. Using excessive force to get what you want is likely to bring a brief and distorted victory, not a lasting one.

If ambition and drive have been pulling you forcefully into what isn’t yet, you’re probably missing out on a lot of what is. Do you find yourself fantasizing about your desires, things that you hope to attain? Is your wandering mind playing out detailed scenarios for how goals might be achieved? Have you gone so far as to consider ways you could manipulate situations in your favor? These are all possible manifestations of the reversed Ace of Swords. Try to redirect that energy into engagement with the present moment, unhampered by events of the past and not overly focused on what’s coming next. The theme card this month, the Hanged Man, wants you to release past patterns, and this could be another habit it’s better to let go of. Besides, if you have to try that hard to force something into being, it’s probably good to question if it’s truly the natural and correct course of events for your life.

What’s Your Power Color?

What’s Your Power Color?

See which color holds the most powerful energy for you!


Colors carry energy, and certain colors can bring out something in you that makes you truly shine. They can enhance confidence, calm restless energy, empower strength, and so much more. Keep reading to see which color brings out the most powerful traits in YOUR zodiac sign!

 

Aries color: Red

The color red stirs Aries’ soul and enhances passion, energy, and initiative. It’s the color of excitement and assertion, which supports Aries’ active nature and eagerness for life. Red demands attention — and Aries is a sign that doesn’t like to be ignored. It’s also no surprise that Aries’ ruling planet, Mars, is known as “The Red Planet.” The more shades of red Aries surrounds itself with, the greater their natural powers can be.


Taurus color: Green

Fresh green nurtures Taurus’ spirit and reinforces its connection to nature and growth. Just like the lush pastures the Bull resides in, green represents growth, and Taurus is a sign of absolute progress. The return of green in the springtime — Taurus’ season — further enhances its connection to this sign.


Gemini color: Yellow

Inspiring yellow lifts Gemini’s spirit and triggers curiosity and brilliant thoughts. This inspiring and life-giving color shines through in Gemini’s exciting, upbeat nature. Mimicking the warm Sun, yellow lightens and brightens everything around it. As the color of the mind and the intellect, yellow enhances Gemini’s mental powers and focus.


Cancer color: White and silver

Bright white and silver connect Cancer with its intuition and provide a clean, clear slate. Like the glistening surface of water or the shining face of the Moon, silver and white are colors of intuition and purity. They increase Cancer’s sensitivity and understanding, allowing love to flow at its deepest level.


Leo color: Gold

Glistening gold empowers Leo’s warm heart and strengthens its positive spirit. Shining with royalty and class, gold has always been a symbol of power and prestige. So it’s no wonder Leo — the King of the Jungle — is stirred by this expressive hue. Gold gives Leo the attention it wants, and supports its generous nature and warm, optimistic outlook on life.


Virgo color: Green and brown

Classic, natural brown and green keep Virgo grounded and focused on continuous growth. Brown represents stability, and supports the careful and methodical approach the Virgin takes to life. In nature green is the color of growth, and strengthens Virgo’s lifelong plight toward self-improvement.


Libra color: Pink and blue

Airy pink and light blue help to open Libra’s heart and soften its presence. These pale hues bring a calming and likeable presence to Libra’s personality. Symbolizing a cool, subtle breeze, light blue increases clarity and balance, while pink invokes Libra’s sweet and loving nature.


Scorpio color: Black

Dark and mysterious black keeps Scorpio intensely inquisitive and focused on transformation. Black represents the depths where the Scorpion resides, and strengthens its drive to look below the surface and question everything. In western culture the color black is associated with death and rebirth, enhancing Scorpio’s strength of letting go and its ability to transform itself.


Sagittarius color: Purple

As the color of spirituality and awareness, lush purple pushes Sagittarius’ philosophical mind toward enlightenment and openness. Also a color of abundance, purple encourages Sagittarius’ natural luck and positive nature, and drives it to continuously broaden its horizons.


Capricorn color: Brown and grey

Earthy grey and brown help Capricorn find the strongest and most practical path to take in life. These strong but neutral colors enhance Capricorn’s solidity, reliability, and traditionalism. A combination of extremes — white and black — grey increases the conservative nature of Capricorn and its no-nonsense approach to life. Brown represents stability, and can greatly benefit the Goat’s steadfast determination as it strives to reach its goals.


Aquarius’ color: Blue

Calming blue helps encourage Aquarius’ brilliant ideas and balance its restless energy. Just like the sky and the waters Aquarius is so closely connected to, blue represents vastness and creates a smooth flow of ideas, conversation, and experimentation. Fun fact: Uranus — Aquarius’ ruling planet — is also blue!


Pisces color: Light green

Perfectly pale green brings about healing and renewal and connects Pisces with its subconscious. As the color of life, light green represents renewal and inspiration, encouraging the healing and rejuvenating energies that Pisces is known for.

Get a Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, July 18th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

With the Moon in your opposite sign all day, dear Aries, you’re challenged to find a balance in your life. This can come through another’s perspective or an objective look at your plans or situation. You recognize the need or desire to include others today. You’re inclined to weigh pros and cons. You’re currently in a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that brings out the artist in you in a highly practical way, as design and planning can be highlighted. You might thoroughly enjoy structuring your creative works or your play and leisure time now. Hobbies and creative pursuits can thrive with individual attention, and your creations may stand out for their uniqueness. This is also a good time for having more faith in your ideas, and for attractions to others who think similarly.

 

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

You’re inclined to zoom in on details and flaws today, dear Taurus, with the Moon emotionally charging your solar sixth house all day. You’re noticing those things not always seen or observed, and this works well for fixing problems, unless, of course, you are fixating on difficulties and not attempting to solve them, which could lead to a lot of unnecessary stress. You’ve recently begun a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that’s good for intellectual stimulation on the home front. However, you can quickly feel bored or frustrated if things aren’t mentally engaging enough now. Designing or redesigning in the home can be satisfying. There can be a lot of “traffic” in your home now, but it can also be an enjoyable time on the domestic front. You’re ready to go to bat for a loved one.

 

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

The Moon spends another day in your creative sector, dear Gemini, and this opens you up and reminds you to enjoy life, not just go through the motions! Pallas is now transiting your communications sector, where it will stay until September 3rd, making the weeks ahead strong for learning, sharing ideas, and enjoying unique projects, particularly if these involve design, structure, and creativity. Your communications are a little more orderly now, and, with a bit of planning, your unique ideas will come across more clearly and competently. Reaching out can bring interesting people into your life, too. This transit helps combat some of the disorganization you may be feeling with retrograde Mars in the opposite sector.

 

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Some days call for action, but for others, taking the path of least resistance works in your favor, dear Cancer, and that’s the likely scenario today with the Moon in your home sector all day, and very little astrological activity. You don’t always have to be “on,” and in fact, if you were, others would tire of the theatrics! You might decide to gather your thoughts, collect yourself, and get in touch with your need for security and comfort, as this will better prepare you for busier and more outgoing days to come. You’re quite happy with the background today. Pallas has recently exited your sign and is currently spending time in your resources sector along with Mercury. This puts a little more emphasis on building up your resources and fuels your ambition to get yourself feeling more secure and grounded. It also boosts your confidence when it comes to expressing and sharing your natural talents, and this theme is with you until September 3rd. Creative business or money-making ideas come readily to you now.

Leo

Leo
Leo

Flexibility is a major key to success today, dear Leo. In truth, the day holds lighter astrological activity than usual, and with the Moon hanging out in your solar third house, keeping things light makes a lot of sense. Taking care of a variety of different tasks should keep you pleasantly busy and engaged. A cycle that recently began and lasts until September 3rd finds Pallas in your sign, and you’re standing out for your creativity and shining for your intelligence and insight. Mercury is also in your sign for an extended stay. Your approach is a little more confident than usual, and you’re more inclined to assert your opinions and share your ideas. This can be a powerful time for dreaming up satisfying plans.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You have another favorable day for practical and sensual, earthy activities, dear Virgo. With the Moon out of your sign and into the next, you’re less concerned about your independence as you are your sense of security. Indeed, you can have both, but at the moment, you’re better off building what you have. Novelty may be wearing off on recent ideas or endeavors, and you’re more able to see what will stay and what will go. Any activity that supports a goal to ground and center yourself will help you to move forward with more purpose. A cycle that recently began and lasts until September 3rd puts extra emphasis on your private life. You can benefit from spending extra time on your own or with your thoughts and inner world. You’ll find it an excellent period for accessing your intuition, in general, and for exploring your unmet needs and private dreams.

 

Libra

Libra
Libra

The Moon spends another day in Libra, and the general emotional tone around you is set by the qualities that come most naturally to you, dear Libra. You may be taking things quite personally right now, but if you decide to act from your heart and make choices based on your heart and not reactions, you’ll find you are entirely on top of your game now. You’re part of a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that may very well bring you into contact with especially interesting people or groups. Or, this can be a time for connecting with exciting and progressive ideas, and plans come together satisfyingly. It’s a reasonable period all around for group activities or collaborations and networking. If there have been imbalances or injustices in a friendship recently, this can be a time for bringing matters back to a balance or straightening things out.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

There is a tendency to tuck yourself away again today, dear Scorpio, and you may very well need a break from demanding situations with the Moon in the sign just behind yours. Emotionally, you may be keeping parts of you to yourself (more than usual). Closing up projects or dealing with endings may be appropriate now. The Moon is coming to the end of a cycle in your chart, urging you to get more rest and time alone in preparation for busier days to come. However, you’ve recently begun a cycle that finds Pallas in your career and reputation sector (Mercury is already here). This is a fine time for thinking about and planning long-term goals. Your unique insight or intelligence may be in the spotlight now, gaining some attention and applause. This is a good cycle in which to cultivate good working relationships or business partnerships.

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

This can be a pressure-free day for relating to friends, and associates, dear Sagittarius. Sometimes, just a little emotional detachment gives you more freedom to be yourself and not worry too much about what other people think or expect of you, and that is the kind of energy with you today. It’s a good time for taking a step back from the more competitive elements of your life and enjoying the cooperative ones. You’ve recently begun a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that encourages more attention to branching out and learning new things, in fact. Your love of learning is in full force now with both Pallas and Mercury in your solar ninth house. It’s a time for broadening your perspective and entertaining new ideas and beliefs, and thoroughly enjoying the process! Others can be finding your ideas especially unique and intriguing.

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

Your career or reputation can assume more importance to you again today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon occupying your sector of responsibility. Be emotionally prepared to take on new responsibilities so that you’ll accept them graciously or, if nothing does come along, you’ll feel relieved. While you may feel as if you’re on show in small ways now, you’re a part of a cycle in which you have a particular interest in your personal or private life, and it’s most absorbing! This cycle, lasting until September 3rd, is a time for discovering much about your inner motivations and psychology. You can reach meaningful conclusions and get to a place of better self-understanding with Mercury also hanging in this deep, dark place of your solar chart. It’s an opportune period for straightening out problems in close relationships related to confusing power dynamics, possessiveness, or ownership matters.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

You’re likely to experience an emotional need to escape the usual routine, dear Aquarius, and introducing some variety into your day, or even taking a major detour, may very well refresh your spirit. Stepping back from trying to figure out what your next move should be helps clear your head. This is a day for zooming away from the details so that you can see the panorama. With Mars retrograde in your sign since the last week of June, you may have been experiencing some waning motivation or enthusiasm, but this energy can also redirect you as you discover interests that you may have overlooked in busier times. You’ve recently begun a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that challenges you to come to a fairer, more considered balance in a partnership, or to get to a better state of balance between attention to personal plans and attention to others. You’re in a fabulous position, all in all, to see your life a little more objectively.

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

You continue to feel the need to turn inward today to examine your motivations, dear Pisces, or to take a break from “doing” in order to observe and strategize. On an emotional level, you may be feeling that you want a little more from life, and especially from others, but the tendency isn’t to pursue your desires just yet. Instead, you’re inclined to plan out your next move. You have no interest in blindly repeating past mistakes with automatic responses and behaviors — you’re seeking to make real changes by coming at problems from a different angle. You’ve recently begun a cycle that is quite favorable for organizing and planning, particularly with work, daily routines, and health goals. Until September 3rd, you’re primarily concerned with what’s fair in your work and with your working relationships. Those things that are out of balance can stick out like a sore thumb now! It’s also a fabulous time for learning new methods and acquiring useful skills.

If You Were Born Today, July 17

Happy Birthday

If You Were Born Today, July 17

You are versatile and are clever enough to wrap your brain around virtually anything you want to understand. You are an odd mix of progressive and traditional, as you can certainly identify injustices and root for the underdog, but you can be very stubborn in your own ways of thinking, balking at change just for the sake of change. You are extraordinarily intelligent and a very interesting conversationalist. You see things through! Famous people born today: Phyllis Diller, Art Linkletter, Donald Sutherland, David Hasselhoff, Camilla Parker Bowles, James Cagney.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.

You’re willing to put in the effort for a mental interest or project this year, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas. You are more able to focus on what you’re doing and communicating, and more inclined to notice and consider details.

Beautiful energy is with you in your social and/or romantic life this year. There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships during this period. You may be taking love and/or friendship more seriously. You can be quite particular in your tastes, and better than usual with money and savings.

At the same time, you’re welcoming more spontaneity into your personal relationships, or at least some of them. You’re in excellent shape for social meetings and events as well as for situations that call for treating others with equality and respect. You are more courageous on a social level, and happily embrace the new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings.

This could be a good year for financial endeavors involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. Circumstances may be such that you handle money more carefully this year.

You have a taste for the offbeat in the period ahead, and romance or friendship can enter your life unexpectedly, perhaps in a scenario that at least feels like love at first sight.

With certain relationships, you’re finding ways to make progressive or unconventional set-ups work, or injecting more excitement and fun into steady connections.

Energy fluctuates this year. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

If there are health issues this year, look for blockages or constrictions since Saturn is involved with the Node.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.

Cooperation seems to work best for you this year, and your personal popularity is on the increase. Even so, in certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation, but be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. There can be increased steadiness and reliability in your social life, and some relationships (or a key one) improve happily. Your social life is more satisfying and people in your life tend to back you up. Money matters can thrive now.

2018 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

2019 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 17th

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 17th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

This is a time to keep yourself busy if it doesn’t naturally happen, dear Aries, with the Moon continuing its transit of your solar sixth house until mid-afternoon. You want to feel that you’re contributing, making a dent in your “to do” list, or tidying up a corner of your life. The details of everyday life can consume your attention and are assuming more significance to you now. Aim to pace yourself since the very feeling of being overwhelmed reduces productivity. From mid-afternoon forward, your emotional focus shifts to social and relationship matters. Accommodating others seems necessary now, and may very well be enjoyable. While you may need to put some personal initiatives on the back burner right now, you’re likely to benefit from doing so.

 

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

You may need a little extra attention and positive feedback today, dear Taurus, with the Moon continuing and then completing its tour of your solar fifth house. Let yourself shine and leave the doors open for others to see your positive traits. Taking a small step back or toning things down temporarily can be a winning strategy if you have the patience now. Later today, you are a little more serious, and you can take advantage of this by applying yourself to an area of your life that can do with some organization. You pay attention to details, the parts that make up the whole, flaws, and problems. This serves an excellent purpose in your life if you use this time well, and this practical influence follows you into tomorrow and much of the following day. It’s a good time to handle those matters that require critical thinking and editing. This is not the time for big-picture thinking or hyper-creativity, but rather for practical application.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

The Moon continues its transit of your home and family sector until mid-afternoon, dear Gemini, and as a result, you might prefer to hang out at home or with those people with whom you feel most comfortable and safe. Just for now, venturing out and about doesn’t entirely appeal. Make extra time for cozy and comforting activities, as this is all part of a natural rhythm in a Moon cycle. While you’re inclined to withdraw or to wax introspective, you come out of your shell later in the day as the Moon moves into a most self-expressive sector of your chart, and the need for more play, fun, and entertainment emerges. If you’ve built your confidence in recent days, then you’re very ready to share your affection and good spirits. If you’ve wasted energy on negative thinking, on the other hand, you may be a little too worried about gaining attention than you are of sharing your happiness with others.

 

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

At least for the first half of the day, you’re in a good position for those things to do with the mind, learning, and communication, dear Cancer. Conversations today can be rousing and even motivating. You’re finding your voice! There is a quickened pace today, but mostly pleasant rather than frantic. Casual interactions tend to run smoothly. However, as the day advances, it’s natural for you to spend more time with family or close loved ones, or with yourself in comfortable settings. In fact, the more comfortable and familiar, the better! You’re not quite so adventurous on an emotional level, but you are very courageous if it means defending an idea, habit, or a loved one. Aim to take a breather, reconnect with your roots, and build faith in yourself in the process with the Moon now in your home and family sector until Thursday night.

 

Leo

Leo
Leo

Physical comforts and pleasures are most appealing while the Moon is in Virgo until mid-afternoon today, dear Leo, since this means the Moon moves through your solar second house. Activities that remind you to appreciate the beauty of the moment, or of the here and now, are very beneficial for you. You may be feeling more stable and comfortable than usual, and with emotions less immediate and urgent, you have a chance to regroup. As the day advances, your curiosity builds, and you’re more interactive! In fact, you may be inclined to scatter your energies, and this isn’t necessarily a negative thing. In fact, it’s time to do some branching out, connecting, and learning about what’s going on around you. You’re at your happiest until Thursday night with a little bit of variety and not so thrilled with routines. You’re standing out for your creative ideas or unique viewpoint.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

The Moon continues to transit your sign until mid-afternoon, dear Virgo, and this is the time to leave emotional issues that have been annoying you or undermining your personal comfort behind you so that you can move forward with a clean slate. You might have an almost urgent desire to satisfy your emotional needs and wants, or you can be anxious to begin anew. Try not to take too seriously the feeling that you have to quickly decide on matters related to love or money, however. Later today, the Moon moves out of your sign, and while your personal experiences and goals have been in high focus, you become more interested in slowing down and enjoying what you have. This is about building, rooting, and nesting rather than innovation or excitement. You are in need of a more predictable and secure pace, and you’re attracted to earthy, simple, and sensual activities and experiences.

 

Libra

Libra
Libra

The Moon moves into your sign mid-afternoon today, dear Libra. Emotions that you may have pushed to the side or left unacknowledged before that time (and in the last couple of days) are likely to surface, demanding attention. With the Moon moving into your sign, you’re in an excellent position for awareness of your emotional needs. However, you should watch for going too far with this at first, as the tendency now can be to aim for instant gratification. People are valuing the very qualities that come naturally to you today, and this can subtly boost your popularity. However, avoid the trap of looking around too much when assessing your own worth later today when the Moon squares Saturn. Feel your own accomplishments and avoid comparing them to those of others, unless, of course, this motivates you to make improvements!

 

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Today’s energies are friendly enough, although by mid-afternoon, you’re inclined to want to keep to yourself, dear Scorpio. Good vibes are with you this morning for connecting with a person or an idea. You’re likely to feel that a particular topic or experience refreshes your outlook. After the Moon’s move into your privacy sector later today, you’re drawn to the background or working behind the scenes in some manner as this is a natural point in the Moon’s cycle through the zodiac for regrouping and centering yourself. This is a restorative transit, lasting until Thursday night, when taking some of the pressure off your life helps refresh you. Rest, relax, and reflect as much as possible. It may be better to envision what it is you want before pursuing your goals more directly when the Moon enters your sign.

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Taking care of practical matters comes naturally to you much of the day, dear Sagittarius, with the Moon at the top of your solar chart, making it a decent time for drawing up career plans, coming up with new ideas, or taking care of business. It can be quite natural for others to turn to you as an authority on a matter. However, by mid-afternoon, you’re ready for a change of pace and focus. If chasing after something intently doesn’t bring you any closer to it, you may need to take a breather and then come at it differently. This is a natural time in the lunar month to pull yourself out of a competitive frame of mind and allow yourself to observe. Cooperating works in your favor during this transit (until Thursday night). A friend may surprise you or help you out today, or a cause/idea is motivating.

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

You’re seeking ways to quench your thirst for activities outside of the norm or routine now, dear Capricorn, with the Moon continuing its transit of your solar ninth house. A little variation in the routine will do you a world of good right now. By mid-afternoon, worldly concerns, work, and responsibilities tend to dominate your thoughts. The Moon moves to the peak of your solar chart, and it’s a time of the lunar cycle when you’re thinking about your aspirations, reflecting on your performance, and more seriously considering how others view you. This accountability can help you stay grounded and to get back on track if you’ve fallen off. You are more able to prioritize and organize now, which may put you in the position to take the lead.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

While you may be a little distant on a social level, dear Aquarius, there can be a need to pull yourself away to research an idea or deal with a private matter now. Getting in touch with your inner voice is important now with the Moon in your solar eighth house until mid-afternoon, as it can be your most valuable guide. To do so, you need to identify fears and illusions and distinguish them from inner wisdom. Later today, you seek inspiration outside of yourself. You’re looking for that little extra spark from your life as the Moon adds some emotional color to your adventure sector. Even if it’s a little getaway, you’ll feel more refreshed and stimulated. This can also happen on a mental plane since wrapping your mind around a new concept can enliven you more than usual now.

 

Pisces

Pisces
Pisces

With the Moon in your opposing sign until mid-afternoon, dear Pisces, the emotional focus is on your closest relationships. There’s no fair way of keeping count when it comes to the balance of power and the sharing involved in a relationship, but large imbalances are likely to affect you strongly now. If you have concerns, it’s a good time to seek out advice from people you trust. You may very well benefit from sharing decision-making. Once the Moon moves into your intimacy sector, however, you tend to crave more than just company, but a deeper connection to someone or your inner world. A desire to know more about a person or relationship can be intense, or you’re drawn to activities and project that are absorbing and consuming. Business and work activities, if you’re taking part, can be bright and fortunate now.

Your Weekly Horoscopes for the Week of July 16th

Your Weekly Horoscopes for the Week of July 16th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

From this week, try to look on every exit as being an entrance to somewhere else. I know you have come to the end of one chapter of your life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t or won’t begin a better and more exciting one. Time spent on work alone this week helps you turn an important corner.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

You have seen a side to a loved one you have not experienced before and it has left you feeling unsure and wary of who you can trust. Give yourself time for this week to pan out, as you are about to discover you have friends in hidden places. Travelling out of your way for tests and interviews is sure to pay dividends.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

I can see that you have gone through an array of different emotions and feelings in the last few days and all of them have only led to you feeling more confused than you were in the beginning. Don’t be afraid to ask for, or even demand, some alone time so you can work out who should be in your life and who you need to part ways with.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Welcome back to your life Cancer. I have missed you! I see from your stars that you have allowed others’ opinions to affect you far too much which has been stopping you from doing what you and I know was the right thing. Luckily for you, Saturn gives you a second attempt to get what you want on Wednesday.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Beware of others accusing you of things you have not done. An overemotional aspect to your chart makes it clear to me that you have been left in a vulnerable situation. Use the power of communication, which Mercury offers from Tuesday, to ask for what you want, your way.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

I can see that family have proved more than a little hard going. You may even have been accused of things you are not capable of, but the more you are pressured the more you seem to buckle. Arrange to take a step back and to take some time out of life, so you can weight up what and who is really important.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Trying to guess the next move of those around you is not a good idea this week. Indeed, it can only lead to you looking opinionated and arrogant. You had a plan for this week and it was a successful one, so make the effort to stick to it please. New friends could be so much more, so keep an open mind and diary.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

You are allowing something to affect you which is not even important enough for you to have to considered, let alone worry about. Why don’t you try dealing with what and who is really on your mind. It is sure to lead to a far more constructive week ahead then the one which is currently looming.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Your element of fire is making it difficult for you to keep others’ secrets to yourself. Don’t forget to remember what they say about people in glass houses though. Grant others the same respect you should wish, should your situation be reversed. An ex is on your mind for all the wrong reasons. Resist the temptation to contact those who can only bring you pain.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Are you saying no because that is what you mean, or are you just trying to be difficult Capricorn? I don’t think you really know yet, with the over emotional mind the stars have placed upon you, do you? Children are the source of good news and much joy. Make more time for them.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Legal dealings and matters of an official nature are set to go your way. All you have to do is remember to keep your long-term goals in the picture and not just your short term needs. This can make all the difference as to whether or not you come out of this week with the news you had been hoping for.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

You will find yourself mixing with some new and really interesting personalities who all seem to want to get to know you on a far more intimate level. Some of you Pisces may even be crossing paths with faces who will end up a permanent part of your long term future. Ring now to hear why July is a great month for your sign to look at going solo in business.

Your Daring Date Horoscopes for the Week of July 16th (for those single & maybe not so much, lol!)

Your Daring Date Horoscopes for the Week of July 16th

David Wells, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

Aries
You’re in with more than a shout this week Aries, it’s a full megaphone call for single sorts to be out and about as your new love sky sends some vibes to secret crushes and encourages them to say hello. He or she may be a bit shy but you have enough energy for both of you. Use it.

Taurus
Venus is in a fellow earth sign and as much as she’d like to set off fireworks and strike up the band, things could be taking a little longer than usual. That’s fine, it leaves you space to do whatever you need to do to loose the influence of the ex. Step by step.

Gemini
Why do some folk think that whispering and giggling behind their hands is acceptable? It’s not, plain and simple. You’re looking for a grown up Gem, someone who has no need for tactics better used at high school for a peck on the cheek. You’re in looking for way more.

Cancer
If it’s all right with you, could you see your way to be outside the town hall at six tomorrow night? Don’t shy away from an offer of a night out, be it mates or first dates, you’ve got lots on but make some space for cupid to get up close and chatty.

Leo
What was it you wanted to ask? You’re not doing a very good job of being the flirtatious, outrageous sort you usually are? Are you playing it cool Leo? Watch out, you could play it so cool someone could go off the boil. Better not to play games, if you’re interested; say so!

Virgo
Venus in your sign is hoping to make a connection, a connection that has longevity V, your type through and through and assisted by Saturn she might get lucky. But wait. Uranus has other ideas, he’s got his eye on someone so far off it may just work. Take the risk.

Libra
Understanding someone who has another agenda is part of the course Libra. You don’t need to be totally in synch, in fact it’s the fact that you have other interests that might make it work. You’ve tried living in each other’s pockets, how did that work out for you? Space, a new frontier.

Scorpio
I am writing your ‘scopes from Australia, staying with friends and they have friends who I haven’t met yet. I’m not looking for romance, but I am always open to new folks who could bring exciting things into my life. Be just as open Scorps, mates of mates bring dates that are great.

Sagittarius
You may not know what someone wants from you, but isn’t that the point? Getting to know each other, understanding if they’re in it for some fun and games or two kids and a small conservatory out the back? Venus puts someone in your path; go with it without the grand plan.

Capricorn
Are you taking your car or is someone else driving? What about dinner, is the table booked and have you arranged a puppy sitter? No time, it’s get up and go Capricorn. When that last minute invitation comes in it could be Venus, Saturn and Uranus arranging a love match. Go.

Aquarius
You may not want to make yourself available for any of that dating malarkey this week and that’s fine, you have things you need to process and no matter how much your mates insist you’re okay to say no. Like you needed me to tell you that. Take a break.

Pisces
With Venus in your love sky you’re favoured by the goddess of love, favoured also by your own ruler Neptune as he links you to big opportunities with someone you’ve been admiring from afar. Be brave Pisces, the planets are with you!

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 16

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 16

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

Jupiter’s change of energy may frustrate some of us, give breathing space to others, but as it begins to move forward again in secretive Scorpio, dark secrets are uncovered or we may cover our own tracks too.

Deception abounds, not only from outside influences, but within one’s own heart too. Make sure you know what and who you truly want right now.

 

ARIES

This is your chance to romantically leap ahead and do all those crazy things you never believed possible. In fact, many moons ago, you would have been horrified at the thought of doing something which you can now take in your stride.  Forget your fears, cast off self-doubt and remember that thing about the law of attraction? It’s coming your way.

 

 

TAURUS

As Uranus continues to ‘work’ your sign, it may feel as if you are being pushed into making changes which aren’t the ones you ever intended to make. Being a fixed sign, ‘change’ doesn’t come easily to you. But if you think about it, the ‘change’ is really just waking up to the truth of who you are and what you need in life. If you go with the flow, you can make positive and love-inspiring plans for your future.

 

 

GEMINI

Communicate your true needs rather than assume your partner or new admirer knows what turns you on. That way, together, you can form an unbreakable bond and forget the mind games. Whoever we are, whatever we think ourselves to be, there’s always a bit of us we don’t really know. This week, shape your love life like a beautiful sculpture, so you can you begin to see the truth.

 

 

CANCER

As much as people keep raving about how everything is changing for the better, you aren’t convinced. At the moment, it seems that remaining a pessimist means you can’t get let down. But it’s actually time to engage in a risk-taking, madcap romance which could lead to spectacular times. Not only that, but you’ll also be liberated from all your doubts and fears about long-term love.

 

 

LEO

This week, the planets reveal it’s time to take a deep breath and re-ignite good intention, then act accordingly. If single, do you want to guard your independence but take on a lover, or are you looking for a traditional commitment? Answers come thick and fast as you look around and realise there is someone out there. If attached, you begin to see how to change your relationship for the better.

 

 

VIRGO

As soon as you feel you’re getting involved, there’s a tremendous desire to totally possess the other, or get out as quickly as possible. And this week, you’ll probably notice this reactionary behaviour more acutely than you have for a long time.  Yet at the same time the desire to be in that place of a happy ever after land lures you ever on. Making a choice could be hard, but prevaricating may mean you miss out on passion.

 

 

LIBRA

This week, you feel like blurting out the kind of honest, yet tactless truths about what you want and don’t want. For example,  ‘I love you today, but I might not tomorrow, because I can’t guarantee it’s forever’.  Quite frankly, this week is not going to be easy. But with the planets reminding you that love is fragile, opt for the romance of love rather than any wrangling.

 

 

SCORPIO

Express those thoughts or feelings that hurt or niggle you. Either to yourself or to a close friend who won’t judge or disapprove. Accept that the mysterious nature of love is part of you as it is of someone else. As one ancient philosopher said, ‘You yourself are another little world and have within you, the sun, the moon and all the stars.’ Be part of that cosmic truth and let yourself shine with love.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS

Right now, you’re one of those people who may have itchy feet or who is ready to move on.  And you can have what you want if you are prepared to change your outlook on love and what it means to you. The root of successful relating is to first have a good relationship with yourself. In the next few months, someone special will be the catalyst for this major turning point in your life.

 

 

CAPRICORN

You’re in one of those hyper-critical moods. If single, every possible right person, becomes wrong.  And all this cursing about life, people and love, is simply because you hate to be imperfect yourself. You long for a perfect world where all is ideal and good, and you’re at the centre of someone else’s existence. But, the hard truth is this week, other people have themselves to think about.

 

AQUARIUS

This week,  learn to respect that your partner or admirer have their own ego to boost too. As someone once said, “at the feast of ego, everyone leaves hungry.” So, this week remember that lovers, new admirers and the world out there, are part of you, as you are part of them. This is the joy of accepting an ancient connection to the world soul, and to your own too.

 

 

PISCES

You need to know where you stand. For a start, does someone love you and only you, and that when they promise something do they mean it?  Now you’re thinking, can you really demand this? Aren’t you supposed to be accepting, kind, and place no conditions of love? But for once in your life you’re going to be a little selfish and make it clear you have needs. Why not start today?
