One of the most intense planetary alignments occurs for the first time in 15 years, as the North Node and Uranus come into conjunction with Mars close behind. A truly momentous time is possible, with a big shift in the works. With Mars also in a fractious right angle with the planet of structure Saturn, frustrations may know few bounds. But compensation comes from Mercury's arrival in Virgo and Venus's gorgeous link to Neptune. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 1st August 2022 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Whatever occurs this week, positive Jupiter in your sign can help you rise above it. It's easy to stay upbeat when things are going well, but it takes a person with character to keep cool when dealing with disruptions or frustrating delays. Focus on what you can do Aries, and make use of the positive Venus ties to enjoy a romantic date or do something that could help you unwind.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Events could take an unpredictable turn, and there is a chance of a spat unless you tread very carefully. But even if you have good reason to believe that an argument is not your fault and you are completely in the clear, it pays to reach out and make the peace, Taurus. You never know if you might need someone's help in the future, so it's worth establishing a good rapport now.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Expect the unexpected Gemini, as this week could be erratic in so many ways. And you may be feeling more sensitive than usual. If you can make you schedule simpler, it will pay you to do so. Avoid acting on impulse, but don't give up on a situation either. Between the two options there is another way that might require patience, but could lead you to a happy solution. Go for that one!
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Whether there are romantic feelings involved or you're eager to work together on a project, you may be thrilled that someone has approached you and is keen to chat. While this opportunity could come out of the blue, there is something to be said for not looking too excited. Hold back a little, and you'll find that your company is valued even more for not appearing too willing.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Don't take what others say too seriously, as people may say things they don't really mean. This applies to offers made in haste that could be withdrawn, or to critical comments that are equally vapid. Mind, as Mercury moves into your money zone, you'll be determined to make sure that any deals or opportunities stand up to scrutiny, Leo. You'll also be ready to speak your mind.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You may be bored by your present situation and keen to enjoy new adventures. The restless Mars/Uranus link could find you booking a quick getaway on impulse, and it might lead to new discoveries and fascinating adventures. Plus, as Mercury glides into your sign, you'll find it easier to discuss your needs. Need a break Virgo? Don't hesitate, as you'll feel better for it.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Avoid making snap decisions, as you can't see the whole picture yet and might regret being so quick off the mark. Things may become clearer as the week progresses, but they could also become more complex, so it's wise not to take things at face value. If someone makes you a promising offer, all that might hold you back are your doubts. It's time to believe in yourself.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You could overreact, just because a loved one doesn't respond to you the way you think they should. If you take this the wrong way, it might lead to a disconnect, Scorpio. But there can be other issues showing up that may cause a stand-off, and they could involve domestic matters. Perhaps the root cause is that you both need to get away, so plan an adventure for two.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
It's best not to take a short cut to where you want to go. While others may be ready to do so, you have too much at stake to ruin your reputation by doing a less than sterling job. Mind, as Mercury hikes into Virgo and a highflying zone, your next move might require detailed planning. While this isn't your usual style, doing the hard work now will pay big dividends later, Archer.Capricorn 22 December â€“ 20 JanuaryThis week begins with a chance to make a creative and inventive splash, Capricorn.

Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Don't make more work for yourself, Pisces. You'll do better to set your priorities first, and cut out anything that isn't urgent. Something you hadn't counted on could show up and disrupt your plans.
