Predictions for the week of July 28
All Signs: There have been harsh aspects between some planets recently, which triggered accidents in our lives and in the news. This week another aggressive relationship between Mars and Uranus will trigger revolts, rebellions, explosions and a strong desire for greater freedom and a chance to express creative change. (“This is who I am!”) Yes, the whole world will be a teenager. Fortunately, two other aspects also occur, which are positive and passionate. (So now the world will be a teenager in the throes of first love.) I am reminded of what a server said at the excellent Oyster Bar on Chuckanut Drive in Washington, “No guts, no glory, no cross, no crown.” (It’s a Bruce Willis week.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Unexpected upsets and difficulties might dog your steps now. These upsets could be physical situations at home (small appliances breaking down or minor accidents occurring) because something will occur that interrupts your regular home routine. However, this might also indicate difficulties in family relationships. Explosions (other than real explosions) could be explosive, heated discussions. People are quick to anger. Obviously, tolerance and patience can hugely minimize this. Offsetting this, you are keen to make improvements to your health as well as your workplace. This is good. For some, it will manifest as a work-related romance that grabs you and rocks your world! Oh wow.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Things are hot and cold this week. There’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is this is an accident-prone time for you. This could mean physical accidents because of distractions, impetuous rash behavior or carelessness. This means you have to be alert! (The world needs more lerts.) It might also refer to verbal accidents where something slips out of your mouth before you can catch it. This either hurts someone else’s feelings, makes you feel like a schmuck or paints you in a bad light. (Ouch.) Therefore, think before you say or do anything. Pay attention to your surroundings. The good news is you will love to party this week and have a great time. The arts will flourish. Your sports instincts are strong. Love at first sight might sweep you off your feet!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Keep an eye on your finances this week because things are rocky. A sudden change in your income or your job might take place. You might find money or you might lose money. Something you own might be broken or stolen. Admittedly, you might see a new way to earn money. If this is the case, your window of opportunity will be brief, so you’ll have to act fast. One area where you will make great strides is with home and family. You want to make where you live more attractive. You might be ingenious about seeing new uses and applications for something you own. This same energy will pour into making family relationships positive. This is a great time! Entertain at home because you want to please others. Real-estate opportunities might also fall in your lap.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Be careful because this is an accident-prone time for you. Your impulse to be aggressive or move too quickly or have knee-jerk reactions to others could rebound negatively. You feel restless and impulsive lately. (Have you noticed?) You want creative change in your environment. You want to improve things! But at the same time, you don’t want to be told what to do. Be aware of this desire and energy and use it wisely. Don’t shotgun the scene. What might trip you up is your intense desire to socialize with friends and neighbors. You love the beauty in your surroundings and you’re eager to share your ideas with others. You also feel affectionate to everyday acquaintances. Handle all this energy carefully.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
For some reason, you are excited, restless or nervous about something. (You know who you are.) This energy could be distracting and make it difficult for you to focus on what is necessary. Just be aware of this. There’s also a possibility that some kind of secret will suddenly be revealed. (“Who is that masked man?”) This could be connected to intense desires you have now to change your financial status. You might see new ways of earning money that excite you. You might also feel obsessed about buying something. Something to do with your finances and cash flow makes you feel passionate this week. In fact, it’s empowering. “First we’ll take Manhattan, then we’ll take Berlin!”
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your relation with others, especially in groups, is volatile at this time. Some of you might get injured in group sports or gym classes or any event where you are physically active with others. Be careful so you can avoid injury. (Bummer.) This same planetary influence might create a situation where you lead others, especially to strike a blow for freedom. (“To the gates!”) Meanwhile, relations with others are passionate! You feel confident, sexy and attractive. Not only are you mesmerized by someone else, you know others are checking you out as well. (Oh yeah.) Enjoy socializing with everyone. Accept all invitations. Romance will be passionate and promising.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Diplomacy and discretion are your best allies this week, especially dealing with authority figures — parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police. Do your smooth Libra thing. Don’t give in to knee-jerk rash actions. Don’t quit your day job. Don’t tell somebody off. Don’t flip the bird. Be chill. Those moments where we feel hugely indignant and want to react invariably go wrong and create later regret. (They’re childish responses.) It is possible that some will have a brief window of opportunity to make a case or advance their cause. Be on the lookout for this. Meanwhile, secret love affairs are bubbling on the back burner for many. Something behind the scenes is stirring your passion!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Many of you feel rebellious. Perhaps issues related to politics, religion, race or something you care passionately about now stirs you to action. (“Freedom!”) You might want to lead people in your cause. You might want to publish something or travel somewhere to enlighten people. Be wary of coercing others to agree with you or act on your behalf. However, at the same time, you have lots of creative, intellectual energy, which is why you are so keen to defend your beliefs. Sudden opportunities to travel or study might fall in your lap. Love affairs with an authority figure (crush on your boss?) might trigger an exciting, albeit illicit, get-away somewhere. (Be still my beating heart.) Whoopee!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Keep an eye on finances, debt, taxes, insurance matters, inheritances and anything to do with shared property because this is where something unusual might occur. Don’t be caught off-guard. Do your homework and be ready for something. Whatever happens could be positive or negative — in fact, it could be a windfall. (But you never know.) Disputes and fights about shared property are very likely. Meanwhile, romance with a boss or someone older or richer or more worldly is also likely. Some of you might be approached by someone to give your creative input on design, layout, furniture arrangement, gardening — whatever. Do it. This is a powerful time for your sign.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Do be patient, tolerant and forgiving with partners and close friends at this time because you might be in the grip of arguments, blowups and rebellious situations. Anger serves no purpose other than to make everyone miserable. Anger is not your best option. (Yeah, yeah, we are all human and it’s easy to lose it.) Act in such a way as you will have no regrets later. (Do yourself a favor.) Travel for pleasure is possible now. Romance with someone from another culture or a different country is also likely. You feel very passionate about ideals, politics, religious issues and belief systems. Enjoy your beliefs but recognize that not everyone else will share them. It is what it is.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Arguments that are work-related might arise now. You might also have difficulties related to computers, technology and electronics. Equipment breakdowns and computer crashes or anything that disrupts your work routine could be a major hiccup. Try to demonstrate grace under pressure if this happens. Be cool. Meanwhile, back in the boudoir, relationships are hot and heavy! Romance flourishes and all your affections are passionate. In addition, you might benefit now from the wealth of others through inheritances, shared income, jointly held property, money back from the government or indirectly through your partner. You’re laughing all the way to the bank!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Be careful because this is an accident-prone time for sports events and for your own kids. Therefore, parents or anyone who has children in their care should be vigilant this week. The upside is that an unusual opportunity for a vacation or a chance to express your creativity could be thrilling. But do be careful with parties, social occasions and sudden galas and festivals because it’s hard to predict what the results will be. Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Meanwhile, close relationships and partnerships are passionate, intense and meaningful. A casual relationship could heat up into something steamy. This is a memorable time for you, so use this powerful energy wisely.
