Weekly Horoscope 2nd July to 8th July 2014

12 zodiac signsOn the 3rd July Mercury the planet of communication goes direct again, so we can all breathe a sigh of relief and start mopping up the mess its retrograde motion created. Or can we? Midweek, relationships come under pressure from every direction as the planets briefly align in a cardinal square, indicating that any actions taken during this phase will have long term consequences. Hence this week’s theme is ‘A moment in time can change your life forever.’

Aries star signAries are determined to use their communication skills for maximum impact, but some people will be confused as to whether you’re speaking to them as a friend or merely a useful contact. Home life is good, with a fleet of fascinating friends keeping you amused; but do try avoid talking about work all of the time, or they’ll be turning up the stereo and forcing you to lighten up.

Taurus star signTaurus are determined to cash in on their words, so anyone who writes reports, stories or lyrics can do extremely well. You’ll be offering full support to loved one who have to rush away and deal with a crisis. Philosophical or political arguments can be strained, so bring out the wine and forget about winning or losing, because being bull-headed will get you nowhere.

gemini star signGemini are using their words to play, and are up to their usual verbal tricks, having fun and not caring what the rest of the world thinks of them. It’s all light hearted banter, yet it can bring great success at work and impress the boss, hence it’s a good time to pitch for a higher salary or apply for a new job. Romance is fun, but don’t forget to ask that special person for their number before you leave the party.

Cancer star signCancer are busy exploring the meaning of life and keeping their thoughts and words to themselves. Any time spent with children or youngsters is rewarding, but their apparent freedom gets you wondering what your own future has to offer, and makes you yearn for a change of career. This is a great week for study and laying down the foundations for a new life direction, which may include relocation or foreign travel.

leo star signLeo are masking their troubles with a lot of jovial banter and everyone will see you as the life and soul of the party. Deep down family and financial issues force you to be serious and take on responsibilities, while work appears to be one long stressful chore. Teaming up with a chum and taking an impromptu trip to an exciting location will offer some much needed fun and relaxation.

Virgo star signVirgo are successfully bringing positive change into their lives, but breaking with the past will feel painful for a while. A determination to succeed makes you extremely popular at work, and many new connections made now will prove beneficial in the future for both career and finances. There’s romance to be found while out socialising, but given the choice of two love interests go for the sensitive one, because the fascinating one is only after some fun.

Libra star signLibra are still struggling with personal relationships and in a quandary as to what to do. Whether to move house or not is something else you’re in a dither about, and you don’t know how best to keep your scales balanced. Seeking answers in spiritual pursuits, and meeting up with like-minded people who enjoy debating the meaning of life brings respite from your worries. It’s a time to talk and think, not act.

Scorpio star signScorpio travel plans may get disrupted, but you’re pretty good at muddling along with anyone your left stranded with, and surprised that people openly share their secrets with you. You’re trying to start new projects, but the old ones refuse to end gracefully. Household duties and children take time, energy and money, but a delightful trip to ‘home from home’ is worth every penny.

Sagittarius star signSagittarius are on the brink of changing their career as they endeavour to incorporate more play into their work. Long standing friends test you to the limits, but exciting new acquaintances bring a smile to your face. Reading up on a favourite subject gives you pleasure, as well as sitting home alone watching a film or listening to music.

Capricorn star signCapricorn are networking like crazy and making excellent new contacts for both work and play. Business meetings and public presentations go extremely well, but don’t measure success by financial reward because there isn’t much there yet for your efforts. Let others wine and dine you, impress them with your sparkling wit, and don’t be surprised when your romantic partner compliments you. This week you’re shining.

Aquarius star signAquarius are making great strides with work projects. You appear to be at the centre of a social hub with lots of chit-chat and quirky jokes flying around. Deep and serious talk is of greater interest to you, and you find plenty of people to discuss personal projects and pet subjects. If you have a creative idea don’t talk about it, start to make it happen.

pisces2Pisces want to play, but everyone appears to be too busy to join in, so you may feel at a bit of a loose end. Work is irritating, and large groups of people stress you out, so take off to your favourite spiritual sanctuary, or health spa, and break the bank finding like-minded people. There’s nothing wrong with pampering yourself and hunting down new play-mates.

Weekly Horoscope 11th June 2014 to 17th June 2014

Don’t forget to join me on The Paul Tizzard Radio Show this Wednesday just after 1pm GMT.

12 zodiac signsWith Mercury retrograde in Cancer this could be a time of feeling ‘poor me,’ which will mainly involve comfort eating, and hooking up with inappropriate people because you believe that are the only one listening to you. Take heart from the fact that sitting home alone is not always such a bad thing and that there are still hundreds of great movies you’ve never found time to watch. So, whether it’s a new film, or an old favourite, this is definitely ‘escape to the flicks’ week.

Aries star signAries will be over working to the detriment of their relationship. A desire to progress and increase your income appears to be taking priority, so remember not to get scratchy with your nearest and dearest. Moving home, or rearranging the furniture in your current abode, are likely; but do find time to relax. War films and thrillers will help you live out your frustrations in fantasy land.

Taurus star signTaurus are overcoming the communication issues by restricting personal conversation to close friends. Any group you belong to won’t be listening, and work colleagues can be especially testing. Don’t forget to back-up your computer because important files might hide from sight. Eating with friends will help you relax, and it doesn’t matter which film you watch, it’s the popcorn and chocolates that hit the button.

gemini star signGemini will find success at work, it’s family and friends demanding attention and hand outs that irritate. A small windfall is possible. Research and spiritual quests occupy your mind and during your spare time we’ll seeing you playing host to important work associates. A crime movie would suit you down to the ground, something like a good bank robbery, because right now you feel like you’re being everyone’s piggy-bank.

Cancer star signCancer will find all forms of communication really frustrating. It’s as if you can’t get a word in edgeways. Your phone or PC might go on the blink, but don’t panic, it’s a good excuse to go and buy something top of the range to cheer yourself up. New toys of all sorts are needed for comfort and entertainment this week. If the other half complains, go and treat them to something as well. Going out to see the latest blockbuster is your movie, after all your gadgets don’t appear to be working properly.

leo star signLeo it’s most unlike you to want to hide in your shell, so entertain at home. It looks like you’re feeling over worked and under paid, so don’t be too over generous with your time and efforts. Any group activity will be sorely frustrating, because nobody is listening to anyone else. Treat yourself to something expensive that you can wear and show-off, then tuck yourself away with a pleasant family movie.

Virgo star signVirgo appear to be avoiding the communication problems by writing everything down so that you can check your facts. Excellent idea. Romance is in the air, but try not to misread text messages from your loved one. Socially you’re the centre of attention and having a fine old time, but stop worrying about everyone being more prosperous than you, the truth is they like you for who you are, not what you have. A whole bunch of you going to the cinema together will give you loads of common ground to talk about afterwards.

Libra star signLibra are in a real quandary concerning relationships, but if you’ve recently split up, a new love interest is on the horizon. Work and your social status is improving, which is really helping your self-esteem. Dining out with friends is important this week because it makes you feel included, while planning an overseas trip gives you something to look forward to. A dreamy, rather surreal film would suit your mood. Ever watched Vanilla Sky?

Scorpio star signScorpio are flying high, and getting to grips with new responsibilities. If you’re at all involved with children or youngsters do maintain discipline, or they’ll be taking control. Something is going on in your home that’s making it topsy-turvy, and accidents will happen, such as breakages; so watch where you’re walking. Romance is strong and your ideal film is a road-movie, but I have a hunch you may take off for a drive and experience it for real.

Sagittarius star signSagittarius are taking on big projects and don’t have time to waste in idle chatter. You’ll want to be on your own because other people’s conversation, even in connection with work or business, appears to be way off the mark. Recently you’ve been building up your funds and this week is right for exploring what you’ll invest your hard earned cash in. You’re romantic partner might think you’ve vanished, and if you try and make up by watching a movie together I bet they’ll talk all the way through. Watch any film your partner would enjoy, and read a book.

Capricorn star signCapricorn are out to have fun and don’t care whether anyone is listening to them or not. A musical festival, a local band, any loud music would suit you well. Turn the stereo up and try not to upset the neighbours. I think a state-of-the-art set of headphones will be your treat for the week. Relationships are being consolidated and a very serious proposal may be heading your way. Skip the movies unless it’s full of music, and heavy drama.

Aquarius star signAquarius at long last you’re gaining a sense of achievement in all work projects, but if self-employed the money has yet to come in. Cooking for friends will be fun, but try to avoid controversial topics of conversation. Romance is hot and steamy, with new romantic couples growing closer together. Choose an easy film to watch as your concentration wanders and you’re likely to fall asleep halfway through.

pisces2Pisces are still feeling playful, and I see you planning overseas trip and seeking adventure. Your budget appears to be out of control, but there’s a close friend willing to bail you out. You’re restless and looking to explore new experiences, such as spiritual matters, or tasting every new food you’ve never eaten before. You’re romancing everyone, and making loads of new friends, but uncertain about committing to any one person. Your movie choice will be any type of movie you’ve never watched, so get a stack of DVDs and ring the changes.
