Horoscope for July 8, 2016

ARIES: Try to let go of old patterns of behaviour that have been holding you back. Change is never simple, especially at a psychological level, but you’ll benefit greatly from abandoning what’s not in your best interests. Where your love life is concerned you can expect the unexpected. You want new, fun people, stimulation and sparkle and a bit of excitement around the place, so it can be extremely lively at the moment, and you don’t always know what’s coming, so it’s erratic and unpredictable.
TAURUS: If you feel that nothing is budging an inch don’t get discouraged. There are powerful pressures working below the surface, which will allow you to turn your life round very soon. If you’ve got a long-running emotional relationship, the present influence come along and just shakes it up a little bit, and if you’re hanging on too much for security, it sometimes feels a little bit insecure. But it opens you up and lets a blast of fresh air blow through things.
GEMINI: There’ll be an intense mood in close relationships. You are not happy with just taking superficial explanations for anything. You want to get right down to the roots of situations. Although you may feel stuck this is part of a clearing out process, when you need to get rid of inessentials your life. If you’ve been feeling you needed to add a little bit of sparkle and more fun to your closest relationship, then go to it. Waken things up that have become dull.
CANCER: IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be slow going at times but perseverance will pay off. Luckily your enthusiasm and optimism will stay high and new opportunities will turn up to allow you to escape from restrictions. You’ll be passionately enthusiastic at times, keen to enjoy yourself and get your own way. Just don’t be too bossy with loved ones. Sudden changes of direction at work will mean you need to stay alert and be ready to go with the flow. You’ll relax more often in a couple of months, happy to be at home.
LEO: Pluto around is beginning to make you examine what things are no longer necessary in your life. Nothing lasts for ever in the same form. In nature with the seasons comes new growth, then flowering, then decay, before the cycle starts over. In the same way you need to see what has past its sell by date, and let it go. Your closest relationship could be unsettled. It’s a bit roller-coaster, to do with indulgences and extravagances. You may be spending money like mad.
VIRGO: If there are tensions in relationships at work or at home, you will need to find a way out of differences without making your actions too obvious. There’s always a trick in finding a middle way. Not being too submissive, letting other people steamroller over the top of you, or being too pushy yourself. You’ll have a feeling that you want absolute excitement, you want to take risks and have thrills, and later you look back and wished you hadn’t been so impulsive.
LIBRA: If you’re willing to learn from life then you can make significant progress. You need to be secure enough in your identity that you can take feedback from others. Try to see where you could alter course just a little bit, whether it’s in your behaviour or your attitudes. Then the way ahead will clear quickly. The influences could bring good, fun relationships into your life, but also rather zany people who aren’t always the kind of friends you want in the long term.
SCORPIO: Maybe you are absolutely right, but being right does not necessarily mean you win. If you end up in a push pull situation, you will only end up with a stalemate. That would be a real waste of energy. You could be a bit impatient with loved ones, because you want them not to be maybe as dull as they have been. So if you can make partners waken up a little bit, then everybody is going to have a great deal more fun.
SAGITTARIUS: Don’t lose your sense of humour. Sometimes a joke can break tension or lift everyone’s spirits when they have become slightly obsessed about tricky situations to which there is no obvious answer. If everyone insists on standing firm, then it could end up in one of these unwinnable battles where nobody is willing to give way. You will probably be wanting to flirt, so there may be somebody who is catching your eye. It’s definitely a time to look for new experiences.
CAPRICORN: Whatever has become confused or delayed around you needs a sensible strategy to get it rolling again. You may feel puzzled initially about how best to tackle it all but keep persevering and the answers will come. It could even be a good time for having a grand clear out and re-organisation. It’s not good for possessive relationships or relationships where you want to keep everything absolutely still and stable and nothing budging an inch. So let a blast of fresh air blow through.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: Try to wind down rather than get too uptight. It may take an effort, but staying cheerful in spite of the circumstances around you may just be the easiest way to sail through in good form. Stay calm and serene, and just smile gently if close companions get sulky or too tricky. You want to be around people who are going to be light-hearted and rather more exciting. You want that rather electrical quality in life. You’re likely to go off and flirt.
PISCES: It may be that other people are pushing you around a little bit. Don’t let them. But don’t get pulled into their tactics either. Responding in like manner is only likely to prolong a sticky situation. So use a little subtle ingenuity to find a third way, and then you will be able to smile triumphantly. Whatever tensions there may have been in your emotional life may come out into the open, but that is all to the good in the long run.
