Horoscope for July 31, 2015
|ARIES: Children are bringing out the best in you now and if you happen not to have any, you will be child-like yourself in your open-hearted determination to play as much as possible. You will put your feelings on the line, saying what you mean, and hinting loudly in the direction of loved ones. Although you want the chance to flirt, have fun and enjoy yourself, you may have a niggling thought about sorting out a few longer-term schemes. If you play away the day, tomorrow may not look after itself.|
|TAURUS: You are looking around at home seeing how you can make your immediate environment feel more comfortable, relaxing and stylish, but it’s difficult to throw away outworn possessions or furniture. Clearing out will not only make your rooms look better, you’ll feel easier within yourself. Maybe you have been keeping out of sight in recent days, but you have a yen for more attention and indeed prominence at work or in your community activities, so see where you can give your ambitions more of a nudge.|
|GEMINI: You will go out of your way to smooth ruffled feathers or avoid confrontation. A calm atmosphere makes you feel settled, whereas angry words put you on edge. Remember to stand up for yourself, since you can give in too much just to keep the peace. All you really want to do is get out of a rut, broaden your horizons and fill your life with more stimulating activities and friends, but needs must, that the mundane details of everyday life are attended to at the same time.|
|CANCER: You want tangible gestures of affection to make you feel appreciated and wanted now, either in cuddles or in presents. You’ll be emotionally rather fixed, at times rather possessive, even jealous at times. Try to be flexible. Your mood will be more intense than usual, so it’s important not to over react to what may just be a passing cloud. You know you are having to be more self-sufficient at the moment, but frankly you could do with leaning on someone close for support or advice.|
|LEO: You will avoid confrontations since you can’t be bothered, but if you compromise too much just for the sake of calm, it may make you sound superficial or insincere. This is a highly significant Full Moon today since it falls in your opposite sign, so you are reviewing one close partnership. You do want more support, but you also want your independence. It’s a question of finding how to fulfil your needs without sounding too contradictory or indeed making partners feel their needs are not being met.
IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time where you’re pulled between your head and your heart and undecided what to do for the best. Don’t make hasty decisions especially about relationships. Take your time. One special partner will be affectionate and supportive though you’ll be working hard to keep life at home and within the family running smoothly. Have a care with joint finances since not all the information coming your way will be reliable, but in general your luck will hold.
|VIRGO: Time spent on your own need not necessarily be lonely, since you will have a chance to connect to your own deeper feelings or indeed creative talents. This is only a temporary phase and will soon be over. Although you really would like to disappear into a quiet space to put your feet up, your conscience is prodding you into being more helpful. Make sure you are looking after your health and energy, since you need to boost your stamina.|
|LIBRA: Your freedom-loving streak is making you wary of too much intimacy at the moment and claustrophobic twosomes will not fit the bill. Make sure you communicate to loved ones that your rather detached manner is not a rejection of them. You are just in a butterfly mood, flitting happily around, not settling anywhere for long. Although you know you really should be sorting out long term plans, what you really want is to play away the day and enjoy yourself.|
|SCORPIO: If you are on the lookout for a new romance, you could find it at work or perhaps with someone slightly older. The Full Moon falling at the lowest point of your chart is not gloomy, but it is a warning that you need to draw back slightly from too much work and ambition to consider your feelings more. You cannot allow your head to overrule everything and forget your heart. Slow down and enjoy being instead of constant doing.
|SAGITTARIUS: You will be spreading your favours around in an enthusiastic way. You want a social life that is challenging, not dull, and will be doing all you can to breathe a little adventure into your off duty activities. The Full Moon, in your chart area of everyday communications, tends to get you bogged down in trivia, and sounding slightly emotional or even biased. If you can stand further back to see the full picture without losing sight of the details, then you will reach better judgements.
|CAPRICORN: Jealousy could be a problem since you want absolute commitment, and any hint of you not being in control will make you feel insecure. Don’t overreact. You may be magnifying a tiny matter out of all proportion. You know you are not going to be happy or emotionally secure, until your get your finances in ship shape order. Yet you also are aware that close partners have a slightly different agenda to you, but your priority is to protect your own back as much as possible.|
|AQUARIUS: You are determined to keep relationships around you smooth and harmonious, but turning somersaults to keep the peace may not always be wise. Be firm but tactful if the need arises. Today’s Full Moon in your own sign is highly significant for close partnerships. You want more support than you are getting, and the freedom to please yourself. It may be unreasonable, but that’s how you feel. Maybe it would be best to back off briefly until you have a clearer idea of what you can expect.|
|PISCES: Try to say what you want without sounding too sharp. Your detachment can have its useful side since you can pick out what is worth saving, but push it too far and you will only cause problems. You want to retreat into a protected space and shut out the world a little, but with this Full Moon, you are pulled between the conflicting wants and oughts. Your sense of duty says work and service to others comes first, but you also have your own needs to consider.|
