July 31, 2014


Aries March 21 – April 19

Although homey affairs may claim part of your time and attention, the main focus is on leisure, pleasure, and enjoying yourself. You'll be in your element if you're the entrepreneurial type. However, a conflict or challenge could require a creative solution. As Mercury moves into Leo on Thursday it adds even more energy to your zone of romance and entertainment. This could be a time of energetic activity if you proceed with caution and don't give in to risk taking or recklessness.


Taurus April 20 – May 20

With a focus on domestic matters and family affairs your home is your castle this week and for some time to come. Mercury's entrance into Leo may encourage planning and organization associated with home-based projects or perhaps a spot of remodeling. However, it helps to confer with a partner before you go ahead. Differences of opinion could mean you clash on essential issues. Home entertaining could be positively delightful, especially this week when you may have more than one good reason to celebrate.


Gemini May 21 – June 21

You may need intense focus to push past obstacles and overcome challenges. Narrowing your focus and concentrating on one goal might be the best way to make good progress. There's a very vital and lively energy showing up in your communication sector. If you're dissatisfied with your job, you might be tempted to look for something else, in which case this could be a great time to apply for jobs or schedule interviews. Be sure to promote yourself on your CV!


Cancer June 22 – July 22

Things seem to be looking up as Mercury joins Jupiter in your financial zone. If previous months have been disappointing, this week and the months ahead may begin to make up for it. Use this opportunity to promote your goods and services, send out CVs, and make use of all your skills. With Mars now zipping through Scorpio, it's likely that creative efforts may have an intensely passionate streak that could earn you a lot of money if promoted in the right circles.


Leo July 23 – August 22

Mercury bops into your sign this week, adding even more emphasis to self-expression, the sharing of ideas, and pursuing personal goals. You may be on fire with plans that you've been mulling over for some time. In fact, your enthusiasm could reach new heights when your entrepreneurial abilities and fabulous business sense go to work for you to reap rich financial rewards. But life at home could be a drain on your energy. The presence of Mars here could be the catalyst that helps overcome any challenges.


Virgo August 23 – September 22

The week ahead could be one of successful activity along with a renewed level of energy. You can do very well if you can keep track of what you're doing without being tempted into risky moves. Paying attention to your intuition and even your dreams may provide helpful guidance along the way. The focus on your spiritual sector makes this a positive time for all kinds of practices, such as meditation, yoga, or anything else that soothes the spirit and calms the mind.


Libra September 23 – October 22

The accent on socializing is very pronounced, making this one of the best times of the year to connect with others, network, or date. As Mercury zips into Leo there will be even more reasons to accept invitations, attend events, and keep your social calendar fairly full. On another note, you could be pouring your energy into fixing your finances, which has to be a good thing. Career matters are also in focus, although you might need to make one or two compromises if you want to get ahead.


Scorpio October 23 – November 21

You can't hide from the spotlight, although you might not exactly enjoy being there in the first place. Mercury's presence in Leo as of Thursday encourages you to focus on self-promotion. If you're hoping to get a new job, explore a different career path, or improve your business success, it's vital to do so. This month in particular offers many opportunities to impress the right people. Mars in your sign suggests keeping your plans to yourself until it makes sense to unveil them.


Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

Can you resist the call of the wild? With a happy accent on expanding your horizons and entering new territory, the adventure may have only begun. This week you might want to commit to travel plans, or at least to exploring various options open to you. You may also need time out to reflect more deeply on personal issues. Giving yourself the opportunity for deep healing and cathartic release could encourage a powerful inner transformation. The ability to let go may be essential in all of this.


Capricorn December 22 – January 19

Mars encourages you to mix and mingle with influential people, so your social life seems to be positively upbeat right now. An accent on business success might encourage you to move in entrepreneurial circles, which is all to your good. This may be one of the best times of the year for upsizing your business plan and aiming for the stars. The only mistake you can make is thinking too small. If you're hoping to make a certain sum of money, add a few extra zeros on the end for good measure.


Aquarius January 20 – February 18

You may be in relationship heaven right now, especially if you're getting attention from all the right people. As folks continue to promote you behind your back, you may find job opportunities rolling in, and contracts, social invitations, dates, and much more. Naturally it won't happen at once, but by now you could be getting an inkling of what's to come. Along with this, your determination to succeed in your career is all to your credit. This is the time when you can aim high and have every chance of getting there.


Pisces February 19 – March 20

Lifestyle issues continue to be in focus, and this includes your job, health, and everyday routines and habits. The cosmos is currently encouraging you to think big - the bigger the better. The next important point is to make a plan to accomplish your dreams. If you can break a key goal into things you can do on a daily basis, there's no reason why you can't achieve it in style. At the same time, you may crave passion and change of the kind that can transform you on a deep inner level.
