MOORE WEEKLY STARS
JULY 25-31, 2022
Have you been waiting in the wings or sulking on the sidelines Rams? Remember that expansive Jupiter is transiting through your sign (which only happens every 12 years). So spring into action – wake up, explore, experiment, take a calculated risk and make some noise! Be inspired by fiery birthday actress Helen Mirren (who was born on July 26, 1945). “If you want to go make your mark in the world, you’ve got to go out and do it. Don’t be shy, be adventurous.”
This week the stars favour home and hearth, as the New Moon and Mercury highlight your domestic zone. It’s a good time to clean and de-clutter your living space or tackle an overdue DIY project. Venus (your power planet) also links up with Jupiter, so Bulls can expect a busy and bamboozling time. Prepare for some very short timelines. You don’t work well when other people try to hurry you, so have the confidence to cruise at your own preferred pace.
Family relationships and close friendships look complicated, as loved ones debate a wide range of controversial topics. If you have a problem that’s bothering you, don’t over-think things. Instead, let your intuition be your guide. Wisdom for the week is from birthday great, psychiatrist Carl Jung (who was born on July 26, 1875). “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.”
You’ve been talking about saving for something big (like a car, holiday, home deposit or renovations) for a while. With the New Moon in your finance zone (and impulsive Jupiter, Mars and Uranus aspects), resist the urge to be extravagant with cash and careless with credit. In an uncertain economic climate, be a canny Crab who is cautious with money. Plus do an inventory on your inner wealth, as you nurture your self-esteem and consolidate your core values.
With the Sun, New Moon and Mercury charging through your sign, you’ll go to extremes this week as the planets press your ‘Let’s overdo everything’ button. So your motto for the moment is from birthday great Mick Jagger (who has four planets in Leo), “Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.” But resist the temptation to be a right royal bossy-boots, especially when you don’t get your way. Rather than being pushy, try being charmingly persuasive instead!
Mercury (your patron planet) forms difficult aspects with Mars, Uranus and Saturn, so you’ll feel argumentative, restless and/or stressed. The New Moon and Mercury light up your solitude zone, so you’ll also feel like being on your own. Privacy and self-reflection are paramount, and activities like meditation, contemplation and yoga are recommended. Your mantra comes from birthday great Kate Bush, “There’s an awful lot you learn about yourself when you’re alone.”
The fiery New Moon reignites a special hope, dream or wish that’s been languishing on the sidelines. Plus the lively Venus-Jupiter link turbo charges creativity and pushes you to be more proactive. If you are stuck in a professional slump or a relationship rut, don’t dwell on the negatives. It’s time to innovate and re-calibrate. Be inspired by actress (and fellow Libran) Kate Winslet, “The good and bad things are what form us as people. Change makes us grow.”
This week look rather shambolic, as the Venus/Jupiter square disrupts your daily routine and Saturn stymies domestic harmony. And your patience will wear thin with stressed work colleagues, frustrating family members, unpredictable friends or annoying acquaintances. For some Scorpios, a rushed romance could see you jump from the frying pan straight into the fire! So slow down, calm down and focus on the journey rather than the destination.
There’s a Venus/Jupiter square, so you’re keen to communicate and exaggerate. However, if you say or do the first thing on your mind (especially involving friends or finances), you could find yourself regretting your haste. With the Sun, New Moon and Mercury activating your adventure zone, you’re keen to head off on an overseas trip, an interstate interlude or a weekend getaway. But be careful your spontaneous spirit doesn’t land you in unexpected trouble!
The New Moon stimulates your intrigue zone, so no secret is safe as you uncover clues and pick up on cues that other people miss. Be careful what you unearth because you could stir up problems from your own less-than-perfect past. Lust and loot also loom large, as you work through issues involving trust, intimacy, shared possessions or joint finances. The weekend looks frustrating when Mercury and Saturn slow communication, frustrate plans and stymie progress.
This week you’ll be reliably unpredictable and consistently inconsistent! Love, loyalty, cooperation and compromise are the New Moon buzz words, as one half of you wants to snuggle up close with someone special. While the other half longs to be footloose, fancy-free and spontaneously solo. Try to find the sweet spot between cosy companionship and invigorating independence. But resist the urge to be an Aquarian provocateur who is deliberately controversial.
New Moon week is the ideal time to ditch bad daily habits and start afresh. Work, health, fitness and food choices are the main areas where you need to make some long overdue changes and adjustments – the sooner the better. Try to release pent up Piscean frustrations via a chat with a close confidante or a trusted family member. Spending some quality time with your favourite four-legged friend (in the great outdoors) will also help to lift your spirits.
