Horoscope for the week beginning July 10

Michael OConnorBy Michael O’Connor

Tip of the week

As summer 2015 rolls on Mercury, Mars and the Sun are closely aligned in Cancer in the Tropical Zodiac.

Given some of the realities of the bigger picture and beyond the simple pleasures of families enjoying the warm weather near favourite getaways a deepening desire for security is quietly yet surely rising. How this plays out must be assessed on a more individual level, yet given the current state of the world, the human condition, the sense that something big is happening or about to is hanging on the heated airwaves.

Uranus is hovering in its current stationary mode at 20 Aries where it has been since late June and will remain until the end of August. When a planet is stationary or appears to be at a standstill prior to and after it turns retrograde, it takes on added weight, so to speak, in the astrological arena. During this time, first the Sun, then Mercury, then Mars over the next couple of weeks, will each in turn form a 90 degree angle or square to Uranus. As each planet crosses the trigger point the emotional tenor will spike, especially when Mars moves in close around July 23. The Sun simultaneously entering Leo will add to the drama measurably.

Meanwhile Saturn also hovering due to its retrograde process at 28 Scorpio will receive its first contact by square aspect from Jupiter in early August. The last time this occurred was November 1995, true to the 20-year cycle they share. This particular square, called an ‘upper square’ synchronizes with key turning points and endings. Positively, at least in the short term, this could boost the economy as a gathering of planets in Leo by now will support an attitude of play and letting the good times roll. Yet, all the while the weaving of a much more complex plot will be underway and will be revealed before summer ends.

July 10 – 16

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

horoAriesDeep changes that have been underway in you over the past few years have entered a phase of completion. Matters close to home likely came to a head at the time of the Full Moon and the aftermath continues. In some respects all is well and could hardly be better. Yet, a challenge to see a bigger picture to make key choices, especially regarding family, linger.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

An extra busy cycle continues. It is the sort that challenges you to dig deeper into yourself than usual. Call it a soul-searching process or simply a shift of perspective, either way you have a lot on your mind. The good news is that your confidence levels should be on the rise. If they are not, brainstorm about how you can creatively render a better service, something to feel proud about.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

A determined push to increase your confidence levels has begun. You main goal now includes increasing your overall sense of security and state of health. There may well remain some key areas where you need to make some improvements in this regard. Yet it is largely a matter of follow through on initiatives taken last year.

horocancerCancer (June 21 – July 22)

You feel bold and brash about certain matters but circumstances are also directing you to take a diplomatic approach. While making key investments of late feels like the right thing to do you may also have to endure the dent in your account.

Over the coming weeks your focus will be upon returns on your efforts. Even though money talks, expand you focus to include emotional and spiritual rewards too.

Leo (July 22 – Aug 23)

horoLeoBalancing a mix of doing work behind the scenes yet also reaching out to get more attention continues. The risk factor supported by a blend of wit and charm will help your cause. At deeper levels the urge to break through old fears is in full force. Direct your imagination to work for you and not against for best results. Take deliberate action to initiate a momentum of power.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Mixing and mingling with friends new and old has been a central focus lately. Blending in has been important and so too has expressing your sense of individuality, even asserting it at times. At deeper levels you feel the need to dig deeper to access your truth. Having faith in your resourcefulness and resolve is featured and is linked to making a special mark on the world.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

You remain in an important go-ahead phase. This may involve receiving specific training or you could be the one exercising your authority by giving it. In any case, this is an expansive time for you and it is important that you make the most of it. Focus to build a promising momentum; you will be really happy you did in the months to come.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

horoscorpioTaking a philosophical perspective and approach on matters continues. As much as you would like to take some calculated risks to advance your position, you want to know better what you are getting into and/or leaving behind. Yet, the future beckons and whether by inspiration or circumstance it is important that you proceed steadily in that direction.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

You have entered what may be described as a regenerative cycle. Complex feelings, thoughts and circumstances demand your attention. In many respects, however, it is more about patient cooperation than anything else. Still, there is inner work to do and it includes surrender and letting go. Make extra efforts to take care of yourself, drinking more water and getting more rest than usual.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

Engaging with significant others, family and friends continues in the spotlight. Some interactions may involve various levels of conflict, or at least inner resistance, yet you are keen to be involved. There is too much to gain, exchange and share. People want to give to you now and your main challenge is to be open to receive, with respect, grace and gratitude.

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

A mix of working harder and increasing the quality and scope of your involvements with others is in focus now. This trend will continue for a few weeks anyway. Rewards for past efforts will really begin to flow in towards summer’s end, so persevere. Your social scene will pick-up soon as well. Do what you feel you must now to clear the way to do more of what you want soon.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A creative and animated cycle is underway. This is a good time to initiate and/or follow through on projects. This may require some added measures of faith and confidence. Associate pleasure to the process and be willing to give more than you might think you have to. Let your feelings flow and allow your expressions to come from the heart for best results.
