December 23 - January 20
Today's Horoscope for Wednesday July 18th
Pleasure is likely to be high on your priority list at the moment. Just do not be too impulsive or reckless about taking on new commitments just to impress other people. If you want more prominence, you're going to have to do things that draw other people's attention to you. So do what suits the influential people at work or out in your community. Cater for their needs, not your own, and then you will get all the compliments you want.
The Weekly Outlook from 16th July
This week you probably need to sit down with loved ones to work out the rules of the relationship. There needs to be a way of sorting things out so that misunderstandings don't occur in future. With tact and good intentions, you should be able to come to a decent conclusion. You will be more stubborn than usual and slow to make decisions. But your patience will give you the strength to push for what you want over a longish period.
Your Monthly Horoscope for July
Togetherness and financial security will be your priorities this month. You'll want a helping hand wherever you are at home, work or play and the more you can share and care, the better the responses will be more those close. Enthusiastic friends will also be around and your optimism about one plan will prove to be justified. There will be one moment before mid-month where you may dig in your heels and refuse to budge. Try not to over-control since it won't work well. Being less self-sufficient and more adaptable will bring you closer to the right people. After the 22nd you'll be more secretive, your feelings more intense as you wrestle with confidential dilemmas. You'll be keen to push ahead with certain money plans but will need to get the agreement of others which won't always be forthcoming. Try to tone down your approach and at least appear conciliatory. Flying of the handle may not get you what you want.
and Next Month's Horoscope for August
Love and money may be a tricky mix early on so try not to leap ahead without thinking through the consequences of your actions. You'll be on edge but enthusiastic and supportive friends will keep your morale high and offer advice. The Solar Eclipse in the deepest, most confidential area of your chart hints that changing the way you share, care, co-operate and relate with emotionally or financially will be wise. Leaving behind old behaviour patterns is not easy but the results will be worth the effort. You'll be pondering on highly personal matters and wondering how to make the transformation you want and need in your life. Mars will zip up your energy and courage from mid month. You'll sweep obstacles to one side not always tactfully, but you'll make fast progress. The intense mood will give way to more enthusiasm after the 23rd as you think big and run with your grander plans.
Year Ahead 2018
Your optimism will keep you sailing along in good spirits through 2018. Friends, new and old, will be around to boost your morale and keep your focus on what's coming next. Not all of their advice may be realistic though it'll always be cheering to hear. Just check out in advance before making decisions for yourself. Keep networking since the universe is behind you.rnBut for all that you will be more serious at times with Saturn now in your own sign making it clear you have to keep your feet on the ground. Part of its influence will be to prompt you to clear old baggage of any variety that you no longer need, out of your life. Whether in possessions, attitudes of mind or even people you no longer have common interests with. Think of a plant being pruned back, which stimulates new growth in time. Then apply that to your life. Just don't be too standoffish or give in to self-doubt which could happen in odd moments.rnYou'll be busily sorting out your personal finances in the first few months, taking the initiative and ensuring that your long term security comes before indulgences. Then after July you'll be keen to reorganise joint finances, where you share responsibilities with others. The Leo Eclipse will nudge you into changing the way you handle co-operative agreements, financial and emotional. Be open to the idea that maybe your old approach is outworn, so trying new terms of engagement would work better.rnClose relationships will be going through a period of adjustment also from July for a few months as you seek to reach new understandings both internally as you ask yourself what you really want, and with partners. You will feel unsettled at home, wanting to say on the move, perhaps anticipating another relocation soon. All of which makes it tricky to put down roots. But you will be aiming ultimately for more freedom.rnLate in the year you'll sigh with relief at getting more time to yourself.
