Will get lucky this week
Aries
Aries
July 18 - July 24

Your career, unpaid work, university degree or full-time parenting or carer role is at a crossroads. Unless you take a deep breath and summon all your self-control and willpower, you end up feeling as if you have no control at all. This is a myth. To feel genuinely empowered is a rare thing, but when it happens (and it could happen, despite the pressure of this Full Moon) you will love every moment. Run your own tight ship. You’re the vessel and this is your journey.

    Your career, unpaid work, university degree or full-time parenting or carer role is at a crossroads. Unless you take a deep breath and summon all your self-control and willpower, you end up feeling as if you have no control at all. This is a myth.

  • Aquarius
    Aquarius
    July 18 - July 24

    You will need to be left to your own devices, Monday-Wednesday as what you are dealing with is unfathomable. You must now remember that unless you use self-control you tend to feel controlled by circumstances or other people. You actually give away your own power when you pretend to yourself that you have no willpower to run these aspects of your life. In fact, this is just a convenient story you tell yourself, in order to avoid the full, mighty impact of being a potent person.

  • Taurus
    Taurus
    July 18 - July 24

    You are being directly affected by the domino effects of what is happening in Great Britain, Europe (specifically Turkey and France) and beyond. A big global reality check affecting the way you travel, or reach out to people in other regions or countries, is now unfolding. What Monday-Wednesday reveals is a basic truth you have known for the last eight years. Unless you master yourself and stick passionately to self-imposed rules, you will continue to feel pushed and pulled. Crack your own whip.

  • Gemini
    Gemini
    July 18 - July 24

    Put a price on empowerment. Actually sit down and ask yourself what you would pay to feel as if you were running your own life. Of course the bank is powerful. Particular individuals may have their hands on the rent, mortgage, grant, payout, objects and so on. Economic trends can be overwhelming – how do you deal with recession or a currency crisis? You are now in a cycle which is all about rationing yourself in order to have your hands on the wheel.

  • Cancer
    Cancer
    July 18- July 24

    Cancer, either with the same person – or a chain of them – you have been dealing with major questions about power and control. Your former, current or potential partners have been at the heart of these issues about control. Enemies, rivals or opponents have also pushed your buttons. If you want to avoid being overpowered by someone (or something) which is undeniably potent, then you need to use your willpower. If you are not to feel diminished or downsized, you have to rule yourself first.

  • Libra
    Libra
    July 18 - July 24

    You must feel as destiny is relentless at the moment, as you have spent the last eight years unable to truly settle with your house, family, town, apartment, or household. Despite the intensity, you are in a useful position at this Full Moon. Big, bright, bold truths are being revealed and you must use the moment to promise yourself you will use your willpower and self-control to give yourself the upper hand. Time will remove anything or anybody which is unfairly dominating you.

  • Virgo
    Virgo
    July 18 - July 24

    You will win in the end. I mean that quite genuinely, when it comes to the children, godchildren, young relatives, youth projects – or serious lovers – in your life. If you want control then practice self-control. Only by running your own life rigidly can you find empowerment, and that will see you through, even during this temporary phase when it may well feel as if something or someone else is in charge of you, when it comes to the lovers who might usher it in one day.

  • Scorpio
    Scorpio
    July 18 - July 24

    You have had quite enough of feeling controlled by events, other people or even life itself. You wonder if you can do anything. The answer is, you can do more than you imagine, but you will not begin to feel as empowered as you deserve, unless you are strict with yourself. Perhaps you set up a good strategy but let the rules lapse. Maybe you have no strategy at all – in which case I suspect the intensity of your situation this week will force your hand and it may be time to crack your own whip.

  • Leo
    Leo
    July 18 - July 24

    For the last eight years you have seen a complete transformation in your chosen field, industry, business or profession. This week reminds you that if you want control over your lifestyle, you have to use your willpower. This also applies to housework and unpaid work. The gift of real empowerment is available to you, but you must summon up all your determination to tell yourself ‘No’ on particular issues. Don’t let anyone or anything else take the wheel.

  • Sagittarius
    Sagittarius
    July 18 - July 24

    You will feel the intensity of the Full Moon. You have reached a peak moment in your year, when you need to look at what is now so unavoidable or inescapable – and make big choices. Unless you set rules and stick to them, you won’t have the power you deserve over your own life. You cannot purchase the satisfaction of feeling like a strong person running her (or his) own ship. It is not for sale in any catalogue. Half the battle is knowing who or what is precious to you.

  • Capricorn

    A Full Moon is always a hard call. There is no way around that. What helps enormously, though, is realising that only self-control puts you in control. Only willpower makes you powerful. More than anyone else, you know how hard your image works for you, and how it can profoundly affect you. One example would be exercising to prevent weight gain. Another might be addressing the impact of the internet on your name. The time has come to get real and design your own image.

  • Pisces
    Pisces
    July 18 - July 24

    You are well-known for your ability to merge with friends and others in your groups, networks or circles as you don’t have the usual boundaries that others know. This makes you very sensitive to issues about control and power. So what now? The Full Moon Monday-Wednesday is hard work and you have some choices to make. Decide in favour of your own willpower. You can feel empowered by summoning up all your self-control and being the boss of your own social life.
