Astrologer TANYA OBREZA on what’s in the stars this month...
STAR OF THE MONTH
22 June - 22 July
This year encourages you to follow your heart. Right from the start of your birthday season, you may feel restless, but don’t try to force things to happen. It’s often easier to go with the flow. Should obstacles appear, view them as opportunities. Life is a dance, so choose the rhythm that offers you the greatest joy, and take comfort in the fact that all paths lead to the same place - your greatest good.
23 July - 23 August
Sometimes, we reach a time that, in hindsight, is a turning point. Whether you realise its importance depends on your intuition. Whatever the case, there’s no avoiding a renewed outlook on life. More importantly, you undergo a change in your spiritual attitude - old ideals may be traded for newer beliefs, or your present commitment strengthens.
24 August - 22 September
As much as you’d like to retain a sense of stability, in July the cosmos seems determined to cause unpredictability. This is your month to discover that change can bring blessings. If offered an opportunity, don’t hesitate - this advantage won’t arise again for some time. You’re also better equipped to deal with financial issues - so sort out money problems now.
23 September - 23 October
There are times when the least amount of effort can bring the biggest rewards. You have an innate charm and confidence, but throughout July your immaculate sense of timing also helps to steer good things your way. Well planned words and actions also ensure you deliver the goods. It’s a winning formula - so why not mix business with pleasure.
24 October - 22 November
In July long-term plans attract interest. The cosmos offers financial opportunities, but asks for patience. Delayed gratification isn’t usually your style but persistence will pay high dividends. In matters of the heart, singles attract someone special. For couples, there could pressure to fall in line with a partner. If so, maintain independence and equality.
23 November - 21 December
If you’re going to be busy, you may as well hope for a trouble-free month. Of course, it doesn’t always work out that way, but with fiery planets onside - they’ll motivate you through testing tasks. Whether in business or pleasure, through July - it’s all systems go. Just don’t place too much faith in flimsy promises - not everyone is as trustworthy as you.
22 December - 20 January
No-one has a completely drama free existence - we all make mistakes. Consider, though, that these so-called errors of judgement are simply learning tools towards wisdom and compassion. Forgive others, and yourself. This month, there’s so much more to experience, and love. With finances also on side, the occasional luxury is a must.
21 January - 18 February
Aquarians are famous for their fiercely stubborn streak. And as compromise doesn’t seem your top priority at the moment, expect some heated discussions. You’ve had a taste of freedom and want more. Though the planets counsel a degree of care, you want to throw caution to the wind. Just as well your cash supply looks plentiful - even if it is borrowed.
19 February - 20 March
Routine becomes a way of life for many. If life has become too predictable - this month, try something new. Start, perhaps, by making one small change every day. Initially, the choice may not feel comfortable, but it’s important to realise how long old patterns have been stuck in place. Be bold, Pisces. The gain? Bolstered confidence. Surprises, too.
21 March - 20 April
This is your month to network, update your appearance, or, if attached, make things more serious. Singles, too, should strike while the iron is hot. July finds you feeling feisty, yet settled. Mutual trust extends to friendships, too. Money, however, may concern you - especially if someone in your life doesn’t understand the concept of savings.
21 April - May 20
Many Taureans can expect a little extra cash and more variety in their lives. Changes at home keep you on your toes. Though you’re usually a workaholic, July could find you ducking out of the escape hatch. Home’s far more alluring this month, and you’re in the mood to redecorate. There’s nothing like an expensive distraction.
May 21 - 21 June
July’s a grinder of a month when it comes to getting the work done. It’s just a case of powering into top gear and crashing through any self-doubts. Both your work and social diaries are loaded to the hilt. Blame it on an immodest Mars, hurling you into the spotlight. There you’ll be - the centre of attention, and loving it.
