This week's horoscopes: Week beginning 29 July

Your weekly horoscope fix by Yasmin Boland.

If it’s your birthday…

What a time to be a Leo! There was a Full Moon eclipse last week in your Love Zone and next week brings a New Moon eclipse in your sign. The question is not how do you want your life to be but rather this; change is coming, it’s inevitable, forget the past and you will create a better future.

Not going to sugar-coat it, there could be some rude shocks when it comes to cash this week. You’re learning about what it means to be financially independent right now.

It might take the odd curve ball to help you to move through the learning part and get to the part where you actually can stand on your own two financial feet.

Try not to allow anyone else to control you financially. Also see how you can evolve your earning capacity.

There are clashes in the skies in this week between the eclipses, so don’t expect to feel all Zen-without-even-trying.

Basically you can’t expect to feel at peace if you don’t live a holistically-healthy life. That means getting out and about, getting fresh air, sunlight or at least daylight on your skin, eating well, not drinking too much and so on.

Use this week between the eclipses to make some changes you know are needed. Just do it.

There could be a lot of unexpected fears and worries coming up for you this week. This is not because anything bad is going to happen, but rather because the planets are shaking things up for you.

It’s as though the mud at the bottom of your mind is being stirred. That’s fine because actually you get a chance now to work through issues and rinse out the mud, so to speak.

You just have to decide to do the work.

All the upsets you have been though lately can yet work out really well, believe it or not. For the best, even. Right now the chaos planet is probably causing ructions with friends.

You are shocking them and/or vice versa. Some relationships feel like a dead weight around your neck. But the people who prove themselves worthy to you will be with you for long-haul.

So go through these testing times with one eye on the future, which could be splendid.

There could be dramas this week. If that’s the case, here’s is my best advice; don’t try to control anyone or anything except maybe yourself.

The planet of madness, Uranus, is in your Career Zone and clashing with angry Mars so there is every chance your career and ambitions are going to be the source of dramas this week.

Breathe through it as much as you can and don’t bet everything on one idea. Far better to leave options open.

Take as much time out as you need or want this week. The skies are dramatic and not necessarily in a good way.

Meanwhile you have the Sun moving through your 12th House which is the part of your chart where you “just need some time out for heaven’s sake!”

So here’s an idea; if life will allow you to do it, take some time out. Tell people you are just not available as you are taking a “mental health hour/day/week”.

23 September – October 22

Intimacy and/or financial matters are potential sources of surprise for you this week as the planet of madness, Uranus, is activated in your Sex and Money Zone.

The thing is, as the disruption planet Uranus makes through your 8th House now and over the coming months, there are going to be surprises.

You can’t predict what’s coming with any great degree of accuracy because Uranus is the chaos planet that breaks all patterns. So just breathe you way through it all.

23 October – November 21

If your love life was a train schedule, you would be asked to expect delays and disruption this week. Hope that doesn’t sound too weird.

It sums it up pretty well, actually. The trains may well eventually run, but probably not on time and probably not to the scheduled route either. That’s a metaphor for your love life.

The less you try and control it all, the better off you will be. Accept that everything changes, even relationships. Especially relationships!

22 November – December 21

If you’re still living your life the way you’ve always been living then, watch out! Right now you’re in a new cycle where the more you change things up when it comes to your routines, the better.

In fact, this week, if you are stuck in stagnation, do something to change that. Clearing the clutter from your life could be the first, best and easiest step, believe it or not.

Meditating and doing yoga or stretches will also de-stagnate your body.

22 December – January 19

Hopefully whatever happens this week is going to be wonderful for you. Many a Capricorn has been through a lot in the not very distant past.

The upsets and challenges will still be reverberating for many of you. However this week, the planet of cheekiness in your Amusement Zone – aka Uranus in your 5th House – means you have the opportunity for some good-old fashioned fun, which you surely deserve.

So make the most of it because chances like this need to be seized!

The energies are intense this week and they are concentrated partly in your sign, ahead of the eclipse next week which will be in your Love Zone.

These are potentially very testing times for you with all the energies swirling. “Careful not to cut what you can untie” is probably a good rule of thumb for you at this point.

What you do with that information is up to you. Don’t fear change but also avoid change for change’s sake!

Listen up, Pisces! There is a strong fear energy in your chart this week. So yes, do think about your feelings and work on yourself if you can see where fear is holding you back.

But don’t throw yourself into the dark abyss of upset. Rather, try to work out where your fears came from and see if you find a new way to think about the issue.

It will be easier for you to reframe than you might think.
