Wednesday, 26 July 2017

This is a good week to have house guests -- especially young ones. You will learn a lot from them and they will enjoy hanging out with you. Think of ways to keep your mind active while you are at home -- and then spend more time there. No need to go gadding about. Find astrologer Yasmin Boland on Facebook here.

Week beginning Monday, 24 July 2017

Writer Wayne Dyer famously said "when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change". Contemplate this, as the New Moon fires up your Mind Zone. Are you changing your mind about someone or something? Do it. Also, note that you've been under siege from Saturn for so long, it's easy to feel weary. But if you can focus on the good things in your life, there will be more good to focus on. Try it. For more info about your week, call our Angel Card line: 1900 999 888

Month of July

July looks absolutely gorgeous for you -- with a few tiny hiccups, of course, but that is life.

The important thing for you to know is that Venus, Lady Luck herself, will be in your sign from July 5-31, this year. She does visit you every year for three weeks, but 2017 is exceptional. This is because at the same time Venus is making you more attractive, seductive and dazzling than usual -- or at least bringing you the notice you deserve -- Jupiter, the other lucky planet, is at a fantastic angle to your Sun.

In short, the two most powerful benefactors in the sky are both beaming at you this July.

This is a time to act wholeheartedly, to enjoy being you and to launch important creative projects and ideas -- including the idea of having a child. It's also a time to fall in deeply love, or failing that have a mad, life-enhancing romance with a stranger. Indeed, if we were more prone to cliches here, we might suggest a tall, handsome foreigner could walk into your life this month. If he or she did, this person would be playful, romantic, generous and fun.

Venus and Jupiter together make you lucky this month. Now we don't want you rushing off and betting all your cash -- OK maybe buy a lottery ticket -- but do feel lucky. If you feel lucky, you'll feel brave and you'll be able to do things and meet people you never thought you could possibly encounter.

Because of this set up, you would really benefit from a holiday during July. This is not because you're strung out and need a break, but because it would create such joyous memories, and it would be so much fun. Think about going on holiday with a group of friends. It certainly looks as if you might be the centre of a social whirl in July. Everyone wants to be your friend.

Meanwhile, keep your ear to the ground in July, for good news.

There is one possible fly in the ointment. Your partner may be a bit of a stick in the mud, but seduce him or her with kindness and you may find he or she turns to putty in your hands.

Razzle dazzle 'em, Gemini.

Oh you Geminis! You have enough brains for two people and you know how to use the old grey matter too. You can flirt the socks off the rest of us because you know who to read people and what's likely to get into their head. You can make people laugh and you have some of the most brilliant insights around. Forget what you've heard about Geminis being two-faced. It's not that you're anymore two-faced than the next person. You just have an uncanny ability to see every story from at least two sides, which can be confusing to those around you. You're the curious type and you're not afraid of asking the kinds of questions which can make others squirm a little. Let them squirm. Sometimes there are questions which just need to be asked, and if it falls to you to do the interrogating, so be it!

You're a versatile mutable sign which means that you're rarely rigid in your ideas. In fact, flitting from one idea to the next is your forte and one of your weaknesses. Far from needing to learn to keep your mind open, you need to learn to focus on one thing at a time. Your knowledge and the diversity of that knowledge means that you don't like to be kept on one track and if there is one criticism people are likely to make of you it's that you tend to intellectualise things too much. You even try to intellectualise and rationalise feelings. Next time you find yourself doing this, stop, and do a double check, to discover how you feel, rather than how you think you feel.

You have a well-ordered mind, despite your tendency to think one hundred things at once. You're the type to get conversations started during awkward silences and you have highly developed critical facilities. You also have a reputation for being one of the worst flirts of the zodiac. Who are they kidding when they say that? You're one of the best! Flirting is as much about getting into someone's mind as it is about anything else, and you know just how to do that when the spirit moves you. You also have a reputation for being slightly fickle, as well as prone to fits of blackness, but this is the price you pay for your quick wit. Yes, there are times when you feel down and as though the world is a dark, dark place, but just as quickly as these moods descend upon you, they up and leave.

Ruled by Mercury, the fleet footed messenger, you remain as flexible as a reed in the wind and more than happy to adapt to the situations you find yourself in.
