July 2024

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

You could see yourself battling all those around you because you need to either stand up for what you believe in or feel that what is important to you is being challenged. However, take time to observe if it is a real or perceived assault. Maybe you have an internal battle going on where you are trying to figure out what really matters to you. You should seek approval from others, but make sure you are comfortable in your skin. That is what is essential. Make sure things are good at home. Do your share of housework and pretty up the place!

THEME OF THE YEAR, Seeing the forest through the trees will let you create your reality.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

It seems like you are unsure of the direction you want to head towards in life. And no matter what direction you go in, you are more than likely to change directions this month. It is not like you are indecisive as a Libra, but like them, you are weighing out your options. Your mind is trying to fill itself at the buffet of life, and there is much to absorb. Then you take a mental Pepto Bismal, and suddenly, there is another opportunity presenting itself. Keep calm and move on! You will find the fortune life has to offer you at some point in the year.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Old hurts don’t have to hospitalise you. In fact, you can become stronger.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Understanding your tribe will be the key to getting through this month. Sure, you can be independent, but everyone has some sort of dependency where you have to rely on others to get you through the night. That doesn’t mean you will lose your independence because if you pay attention, you can pick up a few pointers to add to your tool chest. Make sure everything you do this month is valuable and worth doing. It doesn’t have to result in something monetary but rather something meaningful. Be it family, friends, or personal growth.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Put your nose to the grindstone, and the rewards will pay off in the long run.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Hey Cancer! You have to stop catering to your friends, or you could become resentful of the fact that you are always there to help. Sometimes, you have to be aware of your personal needs rather than those of others. Look to grow and expand your horizons. Sure, you don’t have to turn your back on others, but be sure to attend to the health benefits you deserve. Pay extra attention to your career path or hobby path if you are a senior. Get things done, and don’t shy away from teaching the young ones stuff that can benefit them. You will have the guru air about you.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Maybe the future is predestined, but you have the ability to fill in the colours.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You may not feel like sunshine right now, but keep working the “fields” and prepare for the harvest. Not everything goes your way or makes sense right away. You have to keep plugging away at what you want to achieve. Even for Leo’s, nothing comes without any effort. You are being asked to try radical approaches and make things happen. Maybe what is bugging you is that partners are pushing you to sharpen your pencils when you prefer to sharpen them on your own. Left to your devices, would you? Maybe you need that push to make a better you! Think about it.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You don’t know it all, so stop to listen as you might learn something

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

Chasing your hopes and dreams can result in the sensation of freedom, much like a bird is free to fly through the skies. Try to set realistic expectations for your relationships. If you set them too high, then you are in for disappointment. However, if you fight for your beliefs, all will be good. However, that doesn’t give you the excuse of being a zealot. Look to express yourself to the world from the heart. Transformation comes from keeping an open mind and learning from experiences that life has to offer. Be Zen in all your actions. That is where actual growth comes from.  

THEME OF THE YEAR , Break free from the details and look at the vast universe before you.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Look, you can get to where you want in your personal empire, but sometimes drastic times calls for drastic measures. You have to trust your gut and go with what you feel instead of constantly weighing things out. Just do it as the shoe company states as they do it in order to build their empire. Empire building requires a dream as well as some hard work and sacrifice. You have to be willing to give up something to get what you desire. Also, never forget the lessons you can learn from others, whether it is about their successes or failures.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Sometimes you are your best teacher if you don’t latch on to your hurts.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Your philosophy around matters is changing or being redefined. These changes will affect how you relate to others. Sometimes, that will make you seem to be rebelling against those around you. Maybe people are getting on your nerves. Wait until the end of the month so you have come to a resolution of what you are honestly dealing with. Maybe it is because you want to have some kind of fun, but you are being held back for whatever reason. Projection is everything. Also, make sure you are taking your medicine, which might include exercise.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Watch your spending this year, as you can go overboard.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Are you expecting the worst from your enemies or, let us say, your perceived enemies? Are people your enemies if they disagree with you? Or are they giving you some insight that you haven’t considered before? So many questions, Saggy. This month is about questioning what you think about things, such as your mindset or relationships. Focus on your routines because that might put things into perspective. Are you spending enough time developing? Are you spending enough time with your partner or friends? Just don’t make life at home more complicated than it needs to be.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Using charm, quick thinking and knowing when to speak will yield success.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

You have the ability to be quite creative this month. Taking inspiration from your dreams and putting it into action will lead to a spectacular month. Don’t waste time focusing on what happened in the past. Learn from that and move towards the future. You don’t have to be lonely. Learn to soften your stance on matters because life isn’t all business, all the time. Let your guard down some of the time. Relationships and partners can move you forward, so you need to show your vulnerable side to those close to you. It will develop trust for both of you.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Our thoughts shape us. Allow those thoughts to make the most progressive you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Home is where the heart is. Don’t listen to others who try to tell you how to live your life. Go where you feel at home, be it on vacation or just where you live. Focus on little things and feel comfortable. Set up your surroundings so you are ready to react to your situation. However, that being said, pull yourself out of your comfort zone every once in a while. That will keep things real. The other thing is that being at home might bring out some confrontational emotions, so if you want to keep the peace, go out for a long walk. Never mind, exercise will be good for you. It will prevent you from wanting smash plates out of frustration. Focus your energy on money making.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Achieve your goals by learning to make necessary adjustments along the way.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Attention! Ah, never mind! You are not an Aries. If we try to get you to march into a straight line, you’ll hit a wall. But that is how you roll. However, some discipline will get you to where that pot of gold lies. Now, that pot of gold isn’t necessarily a pile of money. It can be some other kind of treasure, such as some brilliant knowledge or fun experience you never knew about. The most important thing this month is to do what inspires you most. Look to shake up your mindset, as that could lead to some exciting results where you can thrive.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Discipline is necessary to achieve your goals and rely on partners as they can help.
