 22 MIDWEEK AUGUST 3, 2022
       RELEASE DATE—Sunday, July 31, 2022 RELEASE DATE—Sunday, July 31, 2022
The cosmos gets us thinking more practically and carefully this week. Good! Let’s focus on what is really important and take it to the next big step.
Finances figure prominently in your immediate plans, Leo. So if you are currently carefully counting your pennies, that is great! If you have been splurging a little too much, take some time to reconsider your purchases and save a little more. Great advancements can be made to solidify your finances so you can soon shop, shop, shop!
There is a wonderful aura around you, Virgo that draws people into your orbit. That is because you exude wisdom, emitting the vibes of someone who really knows what they are talking about. Use your profound pres- ence to meet as many new and important people as possible. Your ability to sway the crowd is impressive.
Secrets may be spilt this week, Libra. But these are secrets that need to be shared and scattered. Times are changing and any foggy situation suddenly becomes clear. Practical steps can be taken to restore balance and harmony in any area of your life where you need more stability. Then nothing will hold you back from success.
Scorpios benefit from getting more involved in organizations and efforts that bring them into larger social circles. If you have been feeling a little isolated or even feeling like you are in a rut, it is a great time to expand and deepen friendships and partnerships. Allow yourself to flourish in a fertile environment. You will bloom.
Any professional opportunity offered to you now leads to even bigger opportunities later. Sagittarians who might have been feeling at a pro- fession crossroad should think more practically and focus on the bigger, long term picture. This may require a pivot or a change in direction. But sometimes the detour is the fastest route.
Capricorns are very adept at learning new things that feed their curious minds. Reach out and expand your knowledge in whatever field currently captures your imagination — whether philosophical, artistic, technical or vocational. Your ability to grasp new ideas through lessons is sharp in whatever subject you decide to pursue.
This can be a time of deep emotion and big reactions. Aquarians can sometimes be overly careful in how they express themselves but now, as your heart sings or as you see something profoundly moving, your ability to go with the emotional flow seems to come more naturally and comfortably. Great! Maximize this new talent.
Certain relationships are based on commonality and others on differ- ences. Whoever gives you greater balance and harmony will be the best partner for you in this moment in time. See what you really need in others, Pisces, and you will have no problem finding the right person for the role. Two (or more) becomes a powerhouse.
If you have ever thought about what next steps would be best for you, healthwise, this is a good time to ponder the possibilities. Aries have great get-up-and-go. Now you not only have ample reserves of energy, you also have a much better idea of what will have the greatest benefit and impact. Go forward and conquer.
Fun is the name of the game, Taurus. Your sharp mind is filled with amazing ideas as you find new and creative ways to make every one of your experiences a masterpiece. What inspires you? Find your muse and take your talents to the pinnacle of success. You may also spark a romance along the way as your heart takes flight.
Family becomes more of a focus for you Gemini. So while you figure out how to maximize every encounter, also think of new ways to connect. The result will be very positive as you cement relationships and bridge any lapses in communication. You also find ways of expanding your physical living space in creative ways.
Cancers are often cautious in sharing their opinions but now you are not only able to communicate effectively, you can add to your considerable knowledge base in almost any subject. Gather the facts and take your revised ideas to a greater audience. You never know who you influence and count on as a future supporter.
