HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for July 2015

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will swing your focus to home, family and your private life this month. You might want to cocoon at home; or you might tackle home repairs, redecorating projects and even renovations. Some will become more involved with family members, especially a parent. And because fiery Mars enters the picture on Wednesday, June 24, you will also have to be patient with family members to avoid arguments. And there you have it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month the tempo of your daily schedule will speed up because of the demands you suddenly face. Short trips are a given. Plan for this. In addition, you will be busy talking and communicating to others, especially siblings and relatives. You’ll also be busy with errands and have an ambitious To Do list. Many of you will write or read and study more than usual as well. In a nutshell, you’ll be busier than a one-armed paper hanger, and very vocal, if not strident with others. ‘Move that mountain!’ ‘Build that bridge!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This month your focus is on money, cash flow and your possessions. This could be because you are looking for a job or making a major purchase. You might focus on your possessions, cleaning, repairing or maintaining something. All this focus on money will make you equate your assets with your self-worth. If you’re rich – you feel good. If you’re broke, you feel like navel lint. Don’t do this because life is precious and you are not measured by your bank account. What really counts is your car and where you eat.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This month the Sun in your sign makes you feel energized! This is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. The Sun also attract favourable circumstances to you. You’re a winner! You project your personality with greater force and make a strong impression on others. You’ll have a great need to express yourself. Lots of activity will take place in your life, which, in turn, will give you a chance to show the world what you can do.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will withdraw from the busyness of everything around you this month because you’ll be in planning mode. That’s because next month, the Sun will enter your sign, and you will present yourself to the world in full dazzle. Ta da! Use the month ahead to plan what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about. People who plan and set goals always achieve more. And of course, there’s Ted Turner’s advice: ‘Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and advertise.’

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Start scanning your closet for snappy duds because your popularity rating will soar this month. Invitations for fun times will pour in; and interactions with others be based on fun times, dinners, lunches, get-togethers and parties. Your increased interaction with other will also be due to classes, sports events, meetings, conferences and conventions. Yes, you’ll be schmoozing! The important thing to know is that all these exchanges can benefit you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Holy VIP! This is the only time all year that the Sun is at the top of your chart casting a flattering spotlight on you. People in authority will notice you and ask you to take on a special job or increased responsibilities. Say yes because you won’t have to do anything special to dazzle them. Meanwhile, you’re up for this because Mars now arouses your ambition, the most it’s been aroused in two years. Just when you decide to reach for the brass ring, someone wants to offer it to you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Keep a bag packed by the door because you’re going places this month. You want to broaden your horizons through travel, study, learning from books and film, and interacting with people from different countries and cultures. You’ll be bored with your routine. You want change! Stimulation! Adventure! You want to learn something new. Yeats said, ‘Education is not filling the bucket, it’s lighting a fire!’

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This month is intense and passionate. You want to experience life at a gut level, not just as an intellectual abstraction. You want the nitty-gritty. You can also expect to be more involved with shared property, debt, taxes, inheritances and insurance issues. You might also feel challenged by someone. There could be disputes about shared property or inheritances. Confucius said, ‘Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.’ (The butler Alfred said that, too.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This month, the Sun is 180∞ opposite your sign, which is the only time all year this happens. Because the Sun is your source of energy, and it is now as far away from you as it gets all year, you will be tired. Discover the power nap. You might also be at odds with someone close to you. They annoy you! Could it be that you are wearing different glasses and seeing things from a different point of view? So much depends on attitude. Remember: Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll get a lot done this month because you want to productive, efficient and effective. You’re keen to be better organized and start each day with a To Do list. This desire for high standards will include thoughts about your health. Focus on a new exercise regime or explore a new way of eating. Basically, you are on self-improvement kick, which is excellent. These two planets will also highlight your focus on small pets as well. Woof!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Oh joy! Life will be exciting and romantic because for the first time in almost a year the Sun wants you to play! In the next four weeks, love affairs, romantic interludes and flirtatious téte-á-téte’s will thrill you. Beyond romance, your social life will be stimulated with fun invitations, picnics, barbecues, sports events, musical performances, the theatre, the arts and playful activities with children. And you will want to express your creative talents. Grab every chance to do this.
