Horoscope of the week with Peter Vidal (July 29 – Aug 4)

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr. 20) Mars, your ruling planet, is still offering you solid support, even if it is a little over-emotional. Your energy may therefore swing from one extreme to another, yet always the general movement will be in a positive, forward direction.

TAURUS (Apr. 21 – May 21) Current communication difficulties will be eased by the relationship of Mercury to your sign, which is helping you to think clearly. Mars and Saturn, on the other hand, are sending you challenging patterns, indicating that you must take a more flexible attitude, abandoning some of your expectations.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21) Mercury, your ruling planet, is behaving itself for once. Mind you, you might have to resign yourself to the fact that partners could disagree with you, and may even decline to offer you the support that you believe you deserve. From your point of view, it’s best to listen carefully. 

CANCER (June 22 – July 23) Although your personal prospects are still looking good, and you are busier than usual, see this as a period of caution; a time to push ahead with your own plans as conscientiously as possible and to respect the fact that colleagues have their own ideas which are every bit as valid as yours.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23) You have a natural tendency to over-dramatise situations, never more so than when an emotional planet such as Venus is creating tension and raising the passionate temperature. Deal with personal problems correctly and the coming period will be a time to rejoice in the company of your family and friends.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23) Judging from your solar chart, it seems unlikely that a major upheaval is on the way. Instead you’ll be presented with a series of opportunities to breathe fresh air into situations which you have sometimes found restrictive. Partners must allow you to find your own way and travel in a direction which suits you. 

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23) The group of planets which will be aligned with your sign over the coming months is urging you to make fundamental reforms in your whole life. However, your experience, wisdom and maturity mean that, in the future, you will have much greater control over the final outcome of your actions.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22) This week is not exactly set to be a time of peace and quiet, at least not as far as the celestial spheres are concerned. You have everything going for you, yet somewhere along the line it looks as if you might make a blunder, perhaps betraying a confidence or revealing secret plans.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 22) Mars is still the critical factor, driving you forward with its relentless power. Yet possibly your major period is mid-week when your financial fantasies will collide with the real world. Hopefully, the result will be a profit! You may have to travel in the search of social or romantic fulfilment. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 23 – Jan. 20) Solar patterns bring to mind the ancient proverb to the effect that, if you think you are confused, you shouldn’t worry because the next person is probably much more muddled than you are. In fact, this is a period of supreme inspiration, so dream your dreams, and see where your imagination leads.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar 20) Mars is still making its prolonged passage through sensitive regions of your chart, forcing you to face up to your attitude to work, career questions and adventurous ambitions. It does look as if some of your hopes have been realistic just as long as you are prepared to learn from circumstances.
