ASTRO ADVICE WEEKLY by Eugenia Last
July 2 – July 8, 2023
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Gather information that helps you move forward on the 2nd. Don’t discuss personal concerns until you can verify facts and figures. An emotional situation will escalate on the 3rd and 4th if you don’t listen to what others expect from you. Weigh the pros and cons before entering an agreement that may not favor you. Introductions can change your perspective and your direction on the 5th and 6th. An exchange of information and a synopsis of the possibilities will help you piece together a plan that can help you avoid a mishap. Don’t share your secrets. You’ll face opposition on the 7th and 8th if you are too revealing or chatty about your likes and dislikes. Don’t give anyone the advantage.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Self-deception on the 2nd can be misleading regarding financial, legal or medical issues. To avoid confusion, ask an expert. Create opportunities and avoid impulsive action. It’s up to you to adjust on the 3rd and 4th if you want to get ahead. Let your intuition guide you in a direction that offers stability and brings you peace of mind. Don’t take on too much; focus on what makes a difference. Interference is apparent on the 5th and 6th. Question motives and whether you want to participate in someone else’s plan. Mixed emotions will set you back. Change what’s necessary on the 7th and 8th, but leave what’s working alone. Talk to experts and express your vision. Don’t take a risk to your health or emotional well-being.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep an open mind, but don’t believe everything you hear on the 2nd. Someone will bolster a product, plan or event to grab attention. Take on only what’s necessary. Stick to what you know and like. Don’t dive into something you know little about on the 3rd and 4th; research will save you time and money. Fix up your space to accommodate your lifestyle. Do the work yourself to avoid overspending. Don’t change your appearance on the 5th and 6th unless you have the funds. Adding more debt will lead to stress and limit you from following through with personal plans. You can listen to a proposal on the 7th and 8th, but don’t sign up for something unneeded. Differentiate between what works and what’s hype.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotional manipulation is apparent on the 2nd. Question anyone asking you to do something that you feel is compromising. Hard work will pay off if you do it for the right reason. You’ll capture the attention of someone who can help you reach your goal on the 3rd and 4th. Offer an incentive to ensure you get everything you need to pave your way to success. Emotional spending on the 5th and 6th or letting someone talk you into donating more than you can afford will come back to haunt you. Put your and your family’s monetary needs first. Examine the possibilities on the 7th and 8th and use your imagination to develop an idea to turn your skills, knowledge and experience into something lucrative.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Establish what’s important to you on the 2nd and how much it will cost to maintain your lifestyle. Be careful where you retrieve your information and the legitimacy of the people offering you something. Pay attention to how you apply yourself and your skills on the 3rd and 4th. Detail will make or break whatever you present. Adjustments are only favored if you stay within budget. Spontaneity can be exciting on the 5th and 6th, but not when it comes to romance and unnecessary purchases. You can’t buy love or get good results when emotional manipulation is present. Be a reasonable observer on the 7th and 8th; you’ll discover something interesting about yourself and your relationship with others. Don’t share personal information.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t fold under pressure on the 2nd. Consider what you’ll get in return if someone wants to sell you something or encourages a joint venture. You’ll do best on the 3rd and 4th if you educate yourself and move forward alone. Socialize, and you’ll discover something or someone that interests you. Listen and explore the possibilities, but don’t forget to verify the facts. Stay on top of health and financial issues on the 5th and 6th. It’s better to be safe than sorry. A proactive approach will keep you well-informed and quick to respond. The connections you encounter on the 7th and 8th will be informative and help you bring about change. Let your intuition guide you; you will discover something that gives you hope and opportunities.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Refuse to let anyone cloud your vision on the 2nd. Seek the truth and stand by those you trust. Be part of the solution, not the problem. You’ll meet with opposition on the 3rd and 4th if you let your emotions dictate how you react to situations at home or work. Check out the possibilities before you say no to a proposition. Set guidelines and proceed with flexibility, vision and a positive attitude. Socializing with colleagues or someone you can learn from on the 5th and 6th will help you recognize the possibilities and the downfalls. Say no to joint endeavors or costly ventures. Paying attention to what everyone else is doing on the 7th and 8th will help you make better decisions. Actions speak louder than words.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t get roped into something you don’t fancy on the 2nd. Get the lowdown before agreeing to participate, and look for a reason to opt out. Check the possibilities on the 3rd and 4th, and you’ll discover something that motivates you. Fixing up your space to accommodate your goals will give you the boost you need to follow through. Scrutinize offers on the 5th and 6th and you’ll find discrepancies to help you make better decisions. Choose intelligence and skills over appearance when putting your trust in someone. A partnership looks promising on the 7th and 8th. Take the time to flesh out ideas and learn all you can. Sharing ideas and combining your skills with someone equally as talented will lead to an exciting venture.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t count on anyone or anything on the 2nd. Positive action and taking control will ward off those who confuse and mislead you.

Refuse to let what others do influence you. Stick to your plan and forge ahead. Get together with friends, relatives or colleagues on the 5th and 6th, and you’ll figure out how to improve your life. Personal growth, educational pursuits and romance are favored. If you distance yourself from negative people on the 7th and 8th, getting things done your way will be easier.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep an open mind, but don’t believe everything you hear on the 2nd. Someone you least expect will offer false information or give you the wrong impression regarding their feelings. Small talk on the 3rd and 4th will enlighten you. When opportunity knocks, open the door. Don’t mix emotions and money on the 5th and 6th. Joint ventures, shared expenses and iffy investments will leave you vulnerable. Change only what’s necessary and cost-efficient. You’ll be inspired by what you hear and see on the 7th and 8th. Reconnect with someone who always picks you up and makes you laugh. A good time will give you the strength to initiate a positive lifestyle change.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Join an interest group or reconnect with someone you enjoy working alongside on the 2nd. A reunion will bring back that spark and encourage you to follow your dreams. Tidy up loose ends on the 3rd and 4th, and you’ll feel better. You’ll get a second chance to take advantage of an intriguing opportunity. Make the first move on the 5th and 6th, setting the stage for others to follow suit. How you project who you are and what you want to pursue will help filter out who is on your team. A low-key approach to how you move forward on the 7th and 8th is in your best interest. Expect someone to disrupt your plans if you are too forthcoming.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Mixing business with pleasure on the 2nd will backfire. Don’t jeopardize your position for someone or something fleeting. Check out what others are doing on the 3rd and 4th; it will help you decide how to update your skills, knowledge and presence. Keeping up with technology or what’s trending in your industry will help you get ahead. Take time to rejuvenate on the 5th and 6th. Assess your finances, feelings and future. You have plenty to gain if you share your thoughts with like-minded people. Embrace change and ignore fear. Do something creative on the 7th and 8th, or find a new form of entertainment that broadens your connections and options. By thinking outside the box, you’ll attract interest in your ideas.
