Your week in the stars
By Alison Moroney
ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20
During July 29 to August 11, Arian natives feel a compulsion to assume command of their lives. Sweeping changes are set to be made. However, to be effective and positive you’ll need to conduct your research well. Dramatic consequences can result otherwise, so guard against excessive, unjustified actions. Key dates are August 10-12.
TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21
Taurean natives are gripped by compulsive ideas during July 29 to August 11, whether their own or others. There’s a tendency to be swept away by revolutionary ideas regardless of the outcome. You need to reflect on the implications for your actions, as the potential for problems associated with education, travel, legalities and foreign affairs exists.
GEMINI May 22 – June 22
July 29 to August 11 may well bring a round of power struggles over money, perhaps involving the way partnership income or your partner’s income should be spent. Spending excessively and the expansion of debt are tendencies that should be avoided. Likewise, avoid sloppy management of finances and ensure that liabilities are met.
CANCER Jun 23 – Jul 23
You seem to be mesmerised by people you love deeply during July 29 to August 11, which is not all that surprising. So you may be blind to problems associated with a spouse, romantic interest or child. As such, they could wrap you around their little fingers, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself struggling with increased demands then.
LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23
A transformation is taking place in your working life during July 29 to August 11, precipitating important developments for which you’ll need a balanced perspective. As you navigate these changes, it is easy to extend yourself beyond your limits. Your health could be adversely affected by pushing yourself too far. You also need to avoid extreme actions and reactions.
VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23
July 29 to August 11 colours your life with thoughts of love, whether it is for a child, romantic interest, or hobby. Such thoughts are compelling, driving you towards the achievement of a goal or involvement with that person of interest. It’s important to keep perspective because such tendencies are unhealthy and tinged with irrationality.
LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23
The home is the focus of changing conditions within the home during July 29 to August 11, ultimately resulting in dramatically different conditions. Many Librans may feel forced to walk a different path or be restrained from implementing important changes. Repair or renovations of the home, a relocation, or needing to deal with a difficult family member may be on the agenda.
SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22
Scorpio’s naturally obsessive tendencies are likely to be directed towards the acquisition of knowledge and the control of daily life during July 29 to August 11. With changing transport arrangements and routines, there seems to be some struggle for control over these matters, a contractual matter or situation involving a neighbour or sibling. Don’t overstep the mark!
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21
During July 29 to August 11 Sagittarius will be exercising control of their money or jostling for power over their income as they strive to achieve specific objectives. As you endeavour to change your circumstances, there may be a temptation to gamble, exacerbating any pre-existing problems. Exercise care if wheeling and dealing.
CAPRICORN DEC 22 - JAN 19
The achievement of goals is particularly important to Capricorn natives during July 29 to August 11 as their attainment or nonattainment will have a huge impact on your life direction. Powerful trends motivate you and you will draw strength from your friends, with results coming down to personal effort. Life is set to change.
AQUARIUS JAN 20 - FEB 18
July 29 to August 11 brings an awareness of a need to follow a quieter life path or career direction than you have done in the past. With any number of reasons motivating Aquarian individuals, prominent factors influencing you will include personal welfare or weariness with the struggle for success. What price is success?
PISCES FEB 19 - MAR 20
The attainment of goals drives Piscean natives on towards objectives that have good potential for success during July 29 to August 11. It is important not to overextend yourself, for you can physically burn yourself out or alienate good allies in the process. Filter out the worth goals from those that are less important.
