Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here: July 28 – August 4th

See what the stars have in store for you this week...

If you celebrate your birthday this week:


You’ve been giving in to others’ expectations in recent months but, this year, the cosmos reinstates your control.  You’ll emerge determined, knowing your own worth and with an urge for something new.  Don’t be surprised if a soul mate quietly saunters into your life.  For happy couples, love should grow more secure.  Less fortuitous relationships are likely to wind down into friendships.


Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day:  Tuesday 1st


You could save yourself problems this week by taking a few days break, preferably in easy-going company. The other trick is to become invisible. Right now, a good portion of humanity is feeling tetchy, with some intangible elements brewing up a tiff. Tread softly.


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day: Thursday 3rd


There’s not much in the heavens to help you along this week.  Basically, it’s up to you to stay in control, because if anything – the planets are spoiling for a squabble.  And there’s no consolation to be found comfort eating, either.  Try a portion of exercise instead.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Wednesday 2nd


Sometimes the least effort brings the greatest rewards.   You can thank the great Cosmic Provider for some of this good fortune – but take credit as well for your ability to beguile and impress.  Mix business with pleasure – you won’t be disappointed.


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day: Sunday 30th


It’s not like you to be so biased, Cancer. Just remember that everyone has a right to their own opinions, and that could at least get you back on talking terms. So if harbouring negative notions, keep them to yourself.  They may not be justified. 


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day: Saturday 29th


It’s a time for love, pleasure and all things close to your heart.  You can also trust your instincts in financial and property matters – sudden insights could lead to new business ventures and there’s no better time to negotiate new agreements.  If you need a loan, apply now.


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Monday 31st

This week finds Virgos focusing on health.  Basically, it’s time to stop burning the candle at both ends.  Next, address any long-standing health issues and then concentrate on improving diet and exercise regimes.  Take steps towards healing your tired body.  


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Sunday 30th

For better or for worse, this week spells temptation. Without mentioning names, someone’s turning life upside down with their enticing antics. Part of the fun seems to be in leading you towards extravagance, probably at a time when you can least afford it.


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Tuesday 1st

Professionally you enter a high profile period, with more networking opportunities.  Being more articulate than usual – you say what you mean, and say it well.  Projects can be quickly and efficiently dealt with.  So, Scorpio – get on with the business at hand.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Friday 4th

Certain realisations can take time to dawn on us.  The tell-tale signs often come in the form of a project or relationship that’s lost its appeal. The question is: are you really interested anymore?  If you feel like letting your game drop, maybe it’s for good reason.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Saturday 29th

The cosmos calls a truce for warring relationships.  Although battle-weary, you have just enough energy to wave the white flag and agree to meet on neutral territory.  Chances of ending conflict improve with a mutual meeting of minds.  At last, some peace.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Friday 28th

It seems that what you most want at this time, you can’t have – that proverbial “forbidden fruit”.  Or, you could go for it – knowing that you’re making a bad choice and for all the wrong reasons. Yes, you want gratification – but it need not happen so quickly.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day: Monday 31st

Pisceans seem to get off pretty lightly this week. Sure there’ll be the odd obstacle, but for the most part these next few days should flow along happily. Mostly, it’s attitude. Where others often resent change, you often enjoy it.  In this respect, you can lead by example.
