Horoscope for July 17, 2015
|ARIES: For a couple of days you’re much more emotional in the way you connect to people. Really reaching out and expecting friendship in return. You want deep relationships that mean something to you. Just don’t get too wrapped up in your own feelings and forget to ask what others want. You will want to nurture loved ones and friends out there in the social scene. Don’t mother them and smother them, because they may not take to it very kindly.|
|TAURUS: You don’t want aggravation today. What you yearn for is a pleasant, relaxing time. Even if you’re alone for a while, it won’t bother you because it gives you a chance to mull things over from the recent past, to get your head together about one or two things and see what you need to do for yourself. You can begin to see that you’ve acted without thinking things through clearly enough. With more understanding, you can prevent yourself from ending up in this place in future.|
|GEMINI: You’ve really got to be clear in your own mind about the message you’re trying to get across, since you may get scattered in a busy, busy time. You have too many loose ends flying around your head, too many people to chat to or visit. Other people may not pick up every word you say, but they certainly understand that your heart’s in the right place. You seem to be giving of yourself in a way that others can really tune into at an emotional level.
|CANCER: You’ll be fickle where cash is concerned, wanting to save and spend at the same time. Pleasuring your senses comes with the Moon, but you will also worry a little bit about leaving yourself feeling insecure if you go too wild. This Moon comes round once a month, and it shakes you into a little bit of activity to sort out your finances, but the problem, of course, is that the Moon is also impulsive, so you may make hasty buys.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time when persistence and perseverance will pay off so keep pushing. You’ll need to handle close partners with some finesse since they’ll be stubborn and want the last word at times. Your luck with money should hold good but you’re not likely to save much since you’ll be tempted by extravagances. Be on the alert for sudden changes at work in your life’s direction. Not everything will stay the same but new opportunities will be around.
|LEO: The Moon in your own sign always has that ebbing and flowing quality, one moment outgoing and charming, the next moment rather with-drawn. You will not know from minute to minute or half hour to half hour what it is you actually want. It’s rather pleasant, but you do need more stable, practical people around you.Your boredom threshold is low, and you may jump into action, just to avoid the tedious process of making considered decisions that take account of all the facts.|
|VIRGO: Don’t feel martyred because your efforts are taken for granted. Give gladly and look after yourself in the absence of anyone else doing it. Learning to put down limits and not soak in other people’s worries is vital to your well-being. If you can, hide yourself away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and commitments just to recover your inner peace. You may be feeling too sensitive on one score and interpret as criticisms things that others say that were never meant to hurt.|
|LIBRA: You may become a little bit jealous if you think a friend is off talking to someone else when you want to be talking to them. Don’t overreact. Within two minutes, the situation will have changed again. Not all signs resonate to Moon influences, which are fast moving and emotionally subtle. If you do and are feeling a little bit gloomy, then just know it may just be something that isn’t important, that is going to pass by so quickly that it’s not worth paying much attention to.|
|SCORPIO: You’re likely to find your feelings more on public display than usual. At work you will be more scattered than usual but also more supportive. Just don’t over react, hear slights where none exist. You’ve got to stand a little bit steady for other people. You have to be of a bit of an anchor. You’re the one who’s centre of the group at work and who’s really making things work for everyone, so that’s important to focus in on. Being sensitive and sympathe-tic will be part of your aim.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You want to see things in a much broader kind of way, to take the bird’s eye view rather than being sunk in minutiae and detail. It’s a rather predictive, prophetic kind of Moon for you today. If you can look into the future and see where life is going to be taking you, then you can put your energy out constructively. Over optimism could trip you up. Try not to promise more than you can deliver. Your intentions are good, but you may be getting over enthusiastic.|
|CAPRICORN: This isn’t the day to fly solo or do things entirely on your own. You’ve got to push yourself to make new agreements with close partners where money or emotional matters are concerned. It may take compromise all round, but it will be worth it. So give a little bit, take a little bit, shift ground and meet in the middle. Try to roll with the flow a little bit. You don’t want to be throwing possessions or money away, but not clinging on too tightly is important.|
|AQUARIUS: There could be the odd confrontation through the day, not because you’re assertive, but you just feel a little over-emotional. If you do stir up a problem, just don’t go too far. You will not really want to see it through. You will start something and at the end of it all you wish you hadn’t bothered. Aim for togetherness, keeping things quiet, calm, harmonious and rather pleasant, and you’ll find by the end of the day that you’re rather glad you did.|
|PISCES: Looking after yourself physically is more important than usual. Don’t do anything that is going to really put more strain on your stamina. Just think positively, eat healthily, and sit down more frequently. Your emotional life may be affecting your body slightly more today than usual. If you’re feeling jittered, what happens is your body picks it up so you end up with creaks and groans, sniffles and low energy. If you become aware of the psychological causes, it’s amazing how your body can cheer up.|
