HOROSCOPES: July-born? Get ready for an energy boost this month

Georgia Nicols offers her take on the month ahead for your sign in the zodiac

Monday astrologer Georgia Nicols

Georgia Nicols offers up her take on what’s in store for you in the first full month of summer for 2019.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This month your focus is on home, family and your private life. Enjoy redecorating and making your home feel more attractive and comfortable. You will love to entertain at home because right not you want the freedom to do your own thing! Physical activities with children, including competitive sports are likely. Romance will flourish with sizzling physical energy as well. Woot! If visiting relatives are getting you down, your only recourse is patience because patience is the antidote to anger.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The pace of your days will accelerate now cuz you’re busy! Plan on taking short trips. Expect to do more reading, studying and writing. Meanwhile, your daily schedule will be busy because you’re juggling errands, meetings and tasks. You might be more involved with parents, especially siblings than usual. On top of this, increased chaos and activity on the home front require your attention as well. Oy vey! Stay mindful so that you can keep all these balls in the air. And you can because you’re a hard worker.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This month your focus is on money matters because money matters. You can see ways to boost your income or make money on the side. You might entertain the idea of a new job. At a deeper level, you will question your deepest values in life by asking yourself “What really matters?” Many of you are entertaining the idea of making some big purchases, perhaps to boost your ego because it’s easy to fall into the mistaken idea that your wealth equates your value – which is not true. You are not your bank account and you know this. You are your car.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This month the Sun is in your sign boosting your energy and giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. The Sun will attract favourable situations and important people to you, while fair Venus in your sign makes you charming and diplomatic in all your dealings with others. This is an excellent month to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself, which you might do because fiery Mars urges you to spend money – and make it. Friendship might be the bread of life but money is the honey!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This month you want to keep a low profile. You want to hide or work alone or behind the scenes. Countering this however, fiery Mars is in Leo pushing you to be active and giving you tons of energy to work and assert yourself with others. So there we have it – two contradictory influences. This is why you will keep a low profile, and then suddenly, go out in full dazzle and charm everyone! You will also be a fighter for your own rights as well as the rights of others. “To the gates!”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a popular and fun-loving month! Everyone wants to see your face! Make an effort to catch up on old friendships and renew connections. You can also expect to be more involved with groups and organizations. This is an excellent time to enjoy the company of artistic, creative people. However, if you feel that someone does not have your back – give them some distance. Life is too short to put up with people who don’t have your best interests at heart. This is a great month to set future goals. Ideas?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Look at you! This is the only month all year when the Sun climbs to the top of your chart where it shines a flattering light on you. This means that without doing anything special, you make a fabulous impression on everyone. Chalk it up to smoke and mirrors. Since you create this memorable impression on others, this is the month to make your pitch and advance your agenda. If you need the permission or approval of authority figures, this is your chance to go for the gold!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You need to get outta Dodge. You want adventure, a change of scenery and a chance to learn something new! Even short trips will be stimulating and pleasing. If you can’t travel far then be a tourist in your own backyard. Why not sign up for a course to learn something different? The bottom line is that you want to grab more out of life, and this is an excellent idea. After all, life is short and fat; and you will never again be as young as you are right now. Factoid.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Hmmm, this month is intense and passionate! You feel passionate about everything – including sex. Intimate moments will be affectionate and memorable so make time for your main squeeze. Meanwhile, this is an excellent time to ask for a loan or mortgage because financial situations favour you. You might even receive gifts, goodies and favours from banks or people you know – perhaps an inheritance or a gift from your partner? Just say, “Thank you!” (This will be handy because you want to travel.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This month the Sun is sitting opposite your sign drawing your focus to close friendships and partnerships. The Sun gives you more objectivity and an ability to view your style of relating to others. This is helpful because you will see how you treat others, which means you can have a better understanding of how to treat them better. (Let’s face it, if you want to be adored, you have to be adorable.) Meanwhile, disputes about inheritances, shared property and insurance issues might arise. Be nice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This month you’re working hard to get better organized; plus you’re giving thought to how you can manage your life better. You want to refine and hone your techniques and procedures. Wise move. If you work more efficiently, everything around you will run more smoothly and you will have less stress and more time to circulate petitions and save the universe. Note: with fiery Mars opposite your sign, you have to be more patient with partners and close friends. Keep a smile in your voice. “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Lucky you! This month the Sun is in the most playful part of your chart attracting opportunities for parties, picnics, barbecues, fun-filled sports events, playful times with kids and romance! This is a great time to slip away on a vacation because your motto is: “Let’s have fun!” This is also a creative month, which is good news for artists, writers and performers. Don’t worry about things falling apart because you’re partying your face off. Fiery Mars is in your House of Employment urging you to be productive, which means this month you will work hard and party hard! Yeah!
