HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for July 2016

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This month, your focus is on home, family and your private life. You will want to cocoon at home and catch your breath. But you will not just lounge about asking someone to peel you a grape; oh no, you will throw yourself into renovations and redecorating projects so that you can do something to make your home more attractive and appealing to everyone. Be patient because quarrels with siblings and relatives will arise.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month is busy, on-the-go pace. Fortunately, your communications with others are sweet and diplomatic. In fact, it will likely occur to you just how much love there is in your daily world. In addition, your appreciation for the beauty of your daily surroundings will heighten. These two qualities will make you feel loved and fortunate. Admittedly, with fiery Mars opposite your sign until August, tension with partners and close friends is unavoidable. Oops.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your focus during July will be on money, cash flow and earnings – and things look good! Many of you will boost your income, and almost all of you will buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. It’s a good time to think about your financial picture and how you can save or budget for what you want to do in the future. At a more personal level, you will give more thought to your pubic image because this is something you own as well.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The Sun is in your sign this month boosting your energy for the rest of the year! Plus it will attract important people and favourable circumstances to you. The next month is an excellent time to buy wardrobe goodies. You will also find that relations with partners and close friends will be easier and friendlier. With both the Sun and fair Venus in your sign, you can afford some largess with others. Think of how to improve your real-estate or home in the coming year.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is your month to keep a low profile because your personal year is coming to an end. Ideally, you can use the next four weeks to strategize and plan what you want your new year to be all about. It’s going to be an excellent year for Leos. You will have a lot of the benefits you felt in 2005 but you won’t have Saturn in your sign restricting you with burdens and challenges. Appreciate the simpler life this month.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are entering a month that is more popular! Many of you will join classes, clubs and organizations and be involved socially. Not only are your relations with others pleasant and friendly; for some, a friend could become a lover. Woo woo! You continue to be bold and forthright in all your communications. In fact, this influence will last until August. (Excellent for writers, actors, teachers and anyone in sales and marketing.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Sun is at the top of your chart this month, which makes you high viz.! This gives you an advantage. Use the next four weeks to promote your agenda, or make your pitch, or ask for what you want. During this time, someone will ask for your creative input on things. They want your advice or ideas about design, layout, furniture arrangement, landscaping – something. Feel free to respond because whatever you say will dazzle them!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

‘Hit the road, Jack.’ This month is the perfect time to travel for pleasure. If you can get outta Dodge – do it because you want to expand your world and your experience of life. If you can’t travel, you can travel through books and film. Sign up for a course. Learn something new. Hang out with people from other cultures and different backgrounds so that you can learn from them. Eat at ethnic restaurants and go places you’ve never been before to feel stimulated and alive!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are into financial matters, gifts, goodies and favours from others this month. That’s because there is a strong focus in your chart on the wealth and resources of others as opposed to your own earnings. Discussions about shared property will likely go in your favour. Not only will you attract money and gifts to you – your partner might make more money. Yay! You’re laughing all the way to the bank. Note: This a good month go for a loan or a mortgage.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will be more tired than usual this month. Therefore, respect your need for more sleep. (Go to bed.) This position of the Sun also makes you focus on your closest relationships more than usual. Fortunately, because fair Venus is in the picture, you will enjoy a better balance in your relations with others. It will be easy for you to express your affection; and new love might enter your life. Sports and competition with others continue to be strong throughout the summer.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Vacations, romance and fun times have given you pleasure recently. However, now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get back to work. Basically, you want to feel that your life is running more efficiently. You want a home for everything and everything in its place! You want to feel that your efforts are productive and that you are getting the most bang for your buck! As you implement these higher standards in your life, it will apply to your health as well.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This week you enter a month-long window that promotes parties, vacations, romance, sports, the arts and playful activities with children. New romance will flourish! Grab every chance to have a vacation or even a weekend getaway because your top priority now is YOU. And you want to have a good time! This is good. Joy is a wonderful thing and should be cultivated limitlessly. (You can never be too happy!)
