Horoscopes for July 2023 By Jeanne Douglas

Aries (21 March to 19 April):
Life becomes much more fun and open-hearted and this is not just down to the summer holiday season! For a romantic opportunity is also coming your way and this is exciting indeed. There is excellent communication between the two of you, encouraging you to open up and express your deepest thoughts. Creative projects abound.
Taurus (20 April to 20 May):
This is a good time to approach any topic or subject that you’d rather avoid, for you can be sure of honest opinions and helpful discussions right now, as an attempt to solve issues. And you won’t hold back from battling it out either – if you have to! Yes, your confidence gets an unexpected boost just when you need it the most. Hurrah.
Gemini (21 May to 21 June):
A significant job opportunity that holds tremendous power and authority could come into view. So you’ll be weighing this up carefully and yet this is so excruciating being as the excitement and uncertainty conflict strongly in your mind. Best to ‘go with the flow’ somewhat as your creativity and imagination helpfully come to the fore.
Cancer (22 June to 22 July):
Discussions take place on practical matters that affect your every day living. There’s hard work involved but you’re not too worried about that! It’s all about your life getting sorted out and you’re prepared to do whatever it takes. Just for once others are taking notice of you and helping you out. Even financial matters are improving.
Leo (23 July to 22 August):
There’s a bit of a power battle going on and yet your natural warmth, wit and charisma should help to save the day and to keep you at a distinct advantage – as always! Still, you’ll find it difficult to avoid requests from authority figures being as they talk such sense. As fun as it all is, you’d do well to ‘let go and relax’ at times.
Virgo (23 August to 22 September):
Unusually, you go through a rather active phase of being determined to sort problems out! You also start to put yourself first for a change and it’s been a long time coming, especially when it comes to emotional matters and ‘what you want’. You finally see how you can stabilise your position and build on current successes.
Libra (22 September to 23 October):
Some social or community position of power is on offer and this would enhance your career! However, do assess the work commitment first being as there’s a considerable amount required. Others do seem to currently have the emotional edge right now and yet there’s an admirer in your social circle. Life is interesting.
Scorpio (23 October to 21 November):
You’re having to wade through a fair amount of practicalities in order to get anywhere at all – and this turns out to be quite demanding! So nothing seems straight-forward and yet others appreciate your stamina and determination. Remember that you can still follow your dreams and no-one can take these away from you.
Sagittarius (22 November to 21 December):
You find that your popularity starts to increase and your company is much more in demand than usual. For all your hard work is paying off and your patience and positive thinking have served you well. You’ve been focusing on improving your confidence levels and close friends and partners have particularly helped.
Capricorn (22 December to 19 January):
You’ll be glad when you get to hand over some work role and position of power and authority – for it’s been more trouble than it’s worth just lately. You’ll be seeking out some good pals with whom you can have a good talk and gossip! This also includes your special ‘someone’ with whom you’ll be having real honesty.
Aquarius (20 January to 18 February):
Some big changes are about to erupt in your life and yet which will also see you elevated to a much better position. You’re also likely to face old familiar fears such as involved in risk taking and a change in habits. Close loved ones are being particularly supportive! In fact, someone stands up for you and fights your corner.
Pisces (19 February to 20 March):

This planet also helps with problem-solving and recognition so that life gets sorted surprisingly easier and others are finally seeing all the talents and abilities that you possess. Your popularity increases.
