MOORE WEEKLY STARS
July 18-24, 2022
Pluto opposes the Sun and Mercury, so your bossy side is likely to take over (especially at home or work). If you sweat the small stuff, then you’ll end up feeling tired and emotional by the end of the week. Perhaps it’s time to de-stress, as you meditate, contemplate and chill out. You might just enjoy it! Plus pay close attention to the messages in your nightly dreams. Are they trying to tell you something? The weekend is wonderful for luck and learning.
The intensity levels ratchet up, as Pluto opposes the Sun and Mercury. Issues involving relatives, neighbours, travel, education or social media could be particularly fraught. Jealous thoughts and possessive behaviour are also a danger. If you’re not careful, you could find yourself embroiled in a fiery argument or a frustrating power struggle. Smart Bulls will step back and gain some much-needed perspective. On Saturday, make a wish and follow your dreams.
It will be difficult to balance head and heart this week. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try! Loved ones or work colleagues will attempt to throw you off balance, scramble your sense of certainty, or press your emotional buttons. But it’s up to you to deflect their efforts with plenty of Gemini grace and good humour. Your motto for the moment is from birthday great Nelson Mandela, “A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”
With the Sun, Mercury and Venus all transiting through your sign you’ve got energy to burn, so make sure you channel it into productive pursuits. Mental activities and communication are favoured, and you’ll pick up information with lightning speed. But don’t allow a loved one to manipulate you or try to persuade you to do something against your better judgment. Have the emotional strength (and common sense) to stand your ground and say no.
The tempestuous Pluto transits (from Monday through until Wednesday) highlight your inclination to jealous, possessive, bossy or overbearing behaviour. So do your best to loosen your intense grip on a loved one Leo, otherwise you’ll just drive them away with your dramatic pronouncements and demanding Diva-like antics. Then the fiery Sun shifts into your sign on Friday night (London time) so the weekend is the time to sparkle, shimmy and shine!
Relations with a child, teenager or friend could be strained and the more you try to organise them, the worse things will be. Avoid getting drawn into pointless power-plays. The best way you can help loved ones is to support them in practical ways, as they pursue their ambitions and follow their dreams. Criticism is out and encouragement is in! With Mercury and the Sun shifting into your spiritual and solitude zone, it’s time to meditate, contemplate and recalibrate.
This week looks stressful at home or work. Your ambitious aspirations still have a good chance of manifesting but you must be proactive, patient and persistent. So your motto for the moment is from birthday great, Nelson Mandela “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” You could also become unsettled about a situation involving money matters or trust issues. So avoid making long-term decisions until you can view the situation from a more objective perspective.
The stars boost your personal magnetism – and your manipulative side. Pluto gives you an energy surge that increases your desire to be in charge. But, if you want to avoid unnecessary power struggles and unpleasant dramas, stop trying to control others. You can be powerful and passionate – or compulsive and controlling. If you’re a smart Scorpio, then you’ll choose the path of least resistance as you channel your energy in positive and proactive ways.
Restless Sagittarius – ‘Keep moving forward and don’t look back’ is your current motto. You’re keen to call the shots, but bossy behaviour will only lead to dramas and confrontation. So slip on your humility hat instead. Attached Archers – listen (carefully) to what your partner is saying. Being impatient and jumping to conclusions is not recommended. Looking for your soul mate? The weekend is wonderful for friendship, travel and adventure.
This week (courtesy of transformative Pluto) an obstacle could be placed in your path or you could be drawn into a power struggle with a relative, friend or work colleague. Don’t stress and obsess! Sometimes hurdles help you slow down and see the path ahead more clearly. Then you can adjust our compass and tweak your plans. So keep going Capricorn. Your motto is from birthday great Nelson Mandela, “A winner is a dreamer who never gives up.”
Avoid being disruptive and getting drawn into pointless disputes with family, friends or colleagues. This week will work best if you keep your nose out of other people’s business and concentrate on pursuing personal projects. Mercury and Jupiter encourage fiery bursts of inspiration. However – with Saturn still sauntering through your sign – good ideas on their own won’t get you far. You must combine creativity with hard work and practical productivity.
If you’re involved with a class, group, club or organisation, then expect power plays or personality clashes. There could also be a problem involving a hope or wish that you have for the future. Don’t give up on your dreams! Keep moving towards your goals with gusto and perseverance. So your mantra is from birthday great Nelson Mandela. “There is no passion to be found playing small … in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
