General Weekly Love Horoscope for the Week of Aug. 1st

Messages and moods may be mixed in relationships this week as passionate Mars turns cautious when entering protective Cancer on Wednesday. This energetic change is in stark contrast with vivacious Venus’ presence in outgoing Leo, which encourages taking romantic risks. Make sure your signals are clear so that others know when you want to play hard and when you want to play it safe.
 
 
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your passionate ruling planet Mars’ shift into sensitive Cancer softens your pursuit of romance this week. Instead of being the hard-charging, spontaneous type, you’re more likely to approach people with caution. You could be feeling a bit insecure, but this kind of vulnerability reduces your air of independence, allows you to receive support and makes you more accessible to others.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your emotional temperature is on the rise this weekend with the Moon’s presence in mysterious Scorpio and your 7th House of Relationships on Friday and Saturday. The desire to connect in very deep ways is powerful, but so is your concern about being manipulated or controlled. A high level of trust needs to be established before you can comfortably open your heart and let others in.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your personal life may be complicated by work and other responsibilities for most of the weekend. However, handing these obligations with total commitment can make you more attractive in a non-social setting. A lunar shift into risk-taking Sagittarius and your 7th House of Partners on Sunday supplies a spirit of adventure and openness, stretching your boundaries in playful ways.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Mars, the planet of action and aggression, enters your tender sign on Wednesday, which can spur you to be more active in pursuing your personal goals. If you’re feeling edgy, don’t complain, blame or stress out. Channel your excess energy into physical activity and doubts will quickly fade away. This confidence boost will make it easier to take the initiative with your present partner or make a move toward someone new.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Alluring Venus in your sign warms you with a newfound appreciation of yourself. But the enthusiasm that this inspires may not be expressed as boldly as you might expect. Aggressive Mars is hiding in your private 12th house, making it uncomfortable to come on strong or expose your feelings openly. Ironically, a more indirect approach could get you exactly who and what you want.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Sharing intimate secrets and speaking in measured tones could be especially sexy this weekend. The mood-setting Moon is visiting confidential Scorpio and your 3rd House of Communication, which favors subtle ways of talking that will draw others closer to you. Discretion is a must as telling tales out of turn will undermine trust and could damage a relationship.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Strategy is a key to romantic success this weekend with the Moon’s presence in subtle Scorpio on Friday and Saturday. Being just a little bit mysterious and less available can make you more captivating. Besides, you’re allowed to withhold your thoughts and affections while you assess others to determine whether they are worthy of your attention. Hold back a bit and you might receive more in return.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon’s presence in your emotionally intense sign on Friday and Saturday can make this a personally powerful weekend. You’re not into playing games or taking halfway measures, you need the company of a serious contender. A complex person willing to dive into the depths of his or her feelings is much more desirable than an easygoing individual who keeps everything on the surface.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your time to shine this weekend might not come until Sunday. Sure, you can have fun before then, but the Moon’s visit to your ultra-private 12th house on Friday and Saturday could keep you out of the spotlight. Use that time to get away from it all, either alone or with someone in whom you have total confidence. Rest, relax and nourish your soul instead of pushing yourself socially. You will be glad you did once the Moon moves into your sign on Sunday morning and you are the life of the party once again.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Friends and organizations bring both social opportunities and responsibilities this weekend. One pal could introduce you to someone who could become the love of your life, while another one might drain you with unceasing demands. Finding the right balance between responding to others and taking care of yourself requires a deeper understanding of how to incorporate your desires and your obligations into your life.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Personal matters could get a little sticky this week as assertive Mars splashes into sensitive Cancer on Wednesday and the Moon swims into complex Scorpio on Friday and Saturday. These Water signs emphasize feelings, which don’t always align with your intellectual view of reality. Relaxing your rational perspective and accepting the uncertainty and mystery of emotions will make you more tolerant and loveable now. Follow your heart for a while and see what happens.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Passionate Mars slips into cuddly Cancer and your 5th House of Romance on Wednesday, increasing your chances of experiencing pleasure and love. The Moon in sister Water sign Scorpio colors the weekend with the emotional and spiritual realms where you feel so much at home. Trusting your instincts more than reason isn’t always a great idea, but your psychic powers should be right on target now.

General Weekly Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 25th

We will be looking for more excitement in relationships this week as amorous Venus enters audacious Leo on Thursday. Simple affection is not enough in this outgoing sign that spurs deeper needs for passion and romance. It’s time to step up and speak out to get noticed because the cool and quiet ones are hard to see in the bright light of this expressive sign. The bold Leo New Moon on Saturday sets the stage for grand gestures of generosity and loud declarations of love.

 

 
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are ready to rock in your romantic life this week as alluring Venus dances into your 5th House of Play on Thursday with the Moon joining the party very late on Friday night. Going too far is probably unavoidable under these dramatic conditions where brash behavior is rewarded and taking risks is a must. Shining your love light is bound to attract the attention you seek.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your magnetic ruling planet Venus and the Moon are both hanging out in your 4th House of Home and Family this weekend. This cosmic atmosphere is ideal for entertaining at your place where you can be the queen or king of your castle. Be generous with your heart and you might earn the kind of affection that comes when you don’t hold back. The heat of passion may feel risky, but it’s the secret sauce of relationship success now.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Conversations may start out on a casual note but can quickly become heated this weekend. The warmth is great when you’re being playful and loving, but can kill the romantic mood if you start battling over petty details. Don’t let small differences get in the way of a sweet connection. Demonstrating a good sense of humor is the key that can resolve conflict and turn a painful moment into a pleasurable one.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

The dramatic Leo New Moon encourages you to be more flamboyant this weekend. If you’ve got it, flaunt it, and if you don’t, learn how to fake it fast. This is a time when putting on a show opens doors that sincerity and seriousness can’t touch. If you are genuinely having a good time, it will be so much easier to attract the kind of passionate playmate you want by your side.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This is your week to prance, play and enjoy all the fun and romance that your heart desires. Magnetic Venus dances into your demonstrative sign on Thursday and the Leo New Moon occurring on Saturday ensures a weekend of excitement and drama. Clear your calendar of responsibilities so that you are free to celebrate the joy of giving love with an open heart and being equally loved in return.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s time to dream the impossible dream with the love planet Venus entering your metaphysical 12th house this week. Don’t let the limits of reality lower your expectations because you are ready for romantic inspiration. What starts as a seemingly unrealistic hope now can create the spark needed to restore passion in a current relationship or to begin a fulfilling new one.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your captivating ruling planet Venus enters fearless Leo and your 11th House of Friends this week, enhancing your love life when you’re part of a group. Your social skills make you a natural party planner or an event organizer, which should gain you attention and admiration now. Your heartfelt belief in a cause can be the flame that ignites passion and makes others want to follow your example.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon in generous Leo falls in your 10th House of Public Responsibility this weekend. This is excellent for demonstrating your courage, creativity and leadership qualities to earn you appreciation and adoration. Don’t hold back when it comes to pursuing your goals, since playing it safe is unlikely to arouse much interest. Taking a risk with your heart might be scary at first, but is definitely the richer route to take. Pursuing your passion makes you undeniably hot.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Venus, the planet of amour, enters your 9th House of Faraway Places this week, arousing your deep passion for travel and adventure. People from different cultures can bring out the best in you as curiosity cultivates conversation. Talking about your feelings should serve you well now, so express your opinions with an open heart. Although your enthusiasm is likely to be contagious, make sure to deliver your messages with kindness so that no one is offended along the way.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may have to take chances to rekindle the fire in a relationship now. Flirty Venus enters extroverted Leo, the sign of the gambler, and your 8th House of Intimacy this week. The chances for deeper connections come when you’re willing to open your heart without fear of failure. Yes, it can feel dangerous to express yourself so openly, but the potential rewards are well worth the risks.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your relationship life gets two major boosts this week. Loving Venus moves into your 7th House of Partners on Thursday and the exuberant Leo New Moon makes a commanding performance on Saturday. The key to cashing in on all this romantic goodness is to give your brain a rest and let your emotions lead the way. It may not look cool in the process, but if it’s passion you want, expose your heart.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The love planet Venus shifts into your 6th House of Work and Service on Thursday, encouraging you to express your heart when you’re on the job or dealing with routine tasks. Even the most ordinary activity casts you in a favorable light and can be a springboard to connecting with someone interesting. The joy and pride you bring to minor matters can make you feel like a major star.

General Weekly Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 18th

Mid-summer romance starts to heat up this weekend when the Sun enters heartfelt Leo. However, the bold and courageous style of this sign may be subdued by the emotional Moon’s move into placid and play-it-safe Taurus on Friday. One person is ready to gamble on love while the other might be resistant to taking chances, leading to a stubborn showdown. Flexibility is the key to avoiding relationship gridlock now.

 

 
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Sun fires into lively Leo and your 5th House of Romance late on Friday, kicking off an exciting month of play and creativity. This is a time to cut loose and take risks in expressing your feelings, but be careful of crossing the line and overwhelming sensitive people. Knowing when to move in close and when to back off could be critical to creating the love connection you seek.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon enters your sensual sign very late on Friday, which brings your emotions to the surface for everyone to see. While this sudden vulnerability attracts attention and can feed your desire for pleasure, it may also bring out the stubborn side of your personality. A little generosity on your part will go a long way to avoid conflict, demonstrating what an openhearted and loving person you really are when it counts the most.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

The mood-setting Moon dives into your secretive 12th house late on Friday, drawing you away from the spotlight as you seek some much-needed peace and quiet. This is a perfect time to enjoy a low-key weekend alone or with an undemanding partner. Getting away from it all and communing with nature will be more satisfying now than being the life of the party. Even a busy Gemini like you needs to recharge your battery now and then.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Spending some money on yourself is a good way to increase your confidence this weekend. The Sun is entering flashy Leo and your 2nd House of Self-Worth on Friday night, encouraging you to pamper yourself for a change. Trying a more dramatic approach to your appearance can turn the serious business of relationships into a playful game. Expressing yourself creatively allows others to see you in a new and captivating light.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This dynamic weekend is kicked off by the Sun’s entry into your fearless sign on Friday evening. This return of the Sun to your 1st House of Physicality infuses you with a playful spirit that has you searching for adventure. Doing something special with your partner can reignite the passion in your relationship, or taking chances might open the door to love with someone new.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The Moon’s move into your adventurous 9th house late on Friday expands your horizons in matters of the heart. Instead of sticking to familiar places, it’s time to seek out new people and explore places where nobody knows your name. But instead of feeling isolated in unknown territory, you will be more likely to speak and act freely without feeling the need to protect your old image. Stepping out of your comfort zone is exactly the right move this weekend.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The Moon’s shift into your 8th House of Intimacy late on Friday night could deepen an important relationship. Being honest about your own needs is essential for success. If having different values and desires is a major issue, take your time to sort things out. It’s going to require a good deal of patience before a constructive compromise can be found.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

This could be a yummy weekend with the Moon moving into sensual Taurus late on Friday night. This lunar transit occurs in your 7th House of Relationships, opening the way to a deeper connection with your current partner or encouraging you to start something with someone new. Slow and steady is so much sexier than being emotionally needy or in a hurry, so take your time and see what develops.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Do your best to stay on a steady emotional course this weekend. The Moon is hanging out in easygoing Taurus where your ability to stay calm in a crisis is especially valuable. Taking care of business may not sound sexy, but this lunar transit is activating your 6th House of Work, triggering romantic feelings when you’re dealing with an otherwise unglamorous task. Love can find you in the most unexpected places.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

The Moon’s shift into pleasure-loving Taurus late on Friday night is an invitation to open your heart and take romance as a game. This delicious transit occurs in your 5th House of Play and Creativity, which helps you to relax and have fun. Acting without premeditation and going with the flow makes you more desirable to others. A little spontaneity adds a lot of joy to your life.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Entertaining at your place or returning to familiar territory can give you the security you need to feel comfortable this weekend. The Taurus Moon is traveling through your domestic 4th house to warm your heart, but could also give you less motivation to seek out new people or experiences. Lower the social pressure by keeping things as simple as possible now. There’s nothing wrong with returning to your roots when you are seeking emotional support.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The Moon’s move into mellow Taurus and your 3rd House of Communication late on Friday is great for sweet and sensual conversations. Your tone of voice can be used as an instrument of romance this weekend. Express yourself in a tender and poetic way as your words seem to have a magical power now that turns a simple phrase into a seductive moment.

General Weekly Love Horoscope for July 11th

We may face a dose of reality in relationships this week as amorous Venus tangles in a tense 90-degree square with restrictive Saturn on Wednesday. Demonstrating patience and maturity while remaining painfully honest can clarify what’s needed to repair a wounded partnership, or do what’s necessary to help create a new one.

 

 
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The cool, quirky and innovative Aquarius Moon lights up your 11th House of Groups this weekend. This lunar transit is excellent for going out with friends to a new destination or connecting with someone special while working on an important cause. Experimenting with different people and unusual experiences is better than spending all of your time with familiar faces in the same old places.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

No matter how cautious you feel early in the week, it’s time to take some chances this weekend. The unconventional Aquarius Moon may push you out of your emotional comfort zone, but it makes more sense to loosen up and play than to get too serious. A lighter attitude will also keep you from going to extremes, which you might appreciate when the party is over.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Plans can change in an instant this weekend, which should suit your curious and adaptable personality. But try to maintain a bit of self-control, especially on Friday when your brainy ruling planet Mercury hooks up with wild and crazy Uranus. Whatever goes through your head could pop out of your mouth and undermine your romantic intentions. Think twice before you say something you can’t take back.

 

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

It’s going to take a good deal of tolerance to appreciate and understand others this weekend. A desire to retreat to safe and familiar territory is understandable, but that’s unlikely to serve your romantic interests now. Opening up to discover new ways to share your heart and mind can take you on a thrilling ride. Let your love light shine and you might be pleasantly surprised by what happens next.

 

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Expect an exciting weekend with the inventive and spirited Aquarius Moon lighting up your 7th House of Relationships. Emotions will be high, but fortunately, you can also remain objective enough to keep your feelings from going overboard. Spending time with open-minded people will help you discover joy and mental stimulation, making this an entertaining time.

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Keeping order can be quite difficult this weekend as your logical ruling planet Mercury crashes into chaotic Uranus on Friday. Stress is lowered if you’re willing to adapt to sudden changes instead of trying to stubbornly stick to a pre-determined schedule or plan. The Moon’s move into your 6th House of Service could connect you with someone special through work or as a helpful volunteer. Romance can show up in the unlikeliest places, so keep your heart open just in case.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Don’t despair if you feel underappreciated early this week when stern Saturn scolds your ruling planet Venus. Thankfully, the Moon dances into your 5th House of Fun and Games on Friday afternoon, which should make for a playful weekend. Letting loose to express yourself is not only healthy, but may also be the best way to attract romantic attention. Creating your own special brand of entertainment allows you to focus on your needs for change, inadvertently captivating your audience in the process.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon is in quirky Aquarius this weekend, reflecting a strange quality that may be hard for you to grasp. People need room to breathe, making it difficult to feel close or stick to commitments. Instead of working against this changing tide, get in the flow by letting go of any expectations or judgments about your behavior. Explore uncharted territory instead of trying to control everything in your environment. Romance happens when you least expect it.

 

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may not have to stray far from home to find some fun this weekend. The Moon is traveling through your 3rd House of Nearby Places, which can connect you to interesting people and experiences in the course of your daily activities. Conversation comes easily now, making your gift for expression even more valuable. As long as you don’t get preachy, almost anything you say can captivate your audience.

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Friday’s early morning Full Moon in your sign could bring relationship issues to a head, but the intensity quickly cools with a lunar shift into chilly Aquarius in the afternoon. Expressing strong emotions could push buttons, but your ability to regain objectivity can turn a potential crisis into a breakthrough — helping you get a fresh start with someone new or putting a current partnership on a more flexible foundation.

 

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Ghosts from the past can rattle relationships with Friday’s early morning Full Moon shining in your 12th House of Secrets. Sudden revelations and awakened memories might make you feel less certain about yourself, or perhaps shake your trust in a partner. But if you can keep your mind open and your emotions from overheating, the Moon’s entry into rational Aquarius in the afternoon can free you to move ahead with a lighter load. Celebrate what makes you unique with those who know you best.

 

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s understandable if you want to stay away from busy places this weekend. The Moon is hanging out in your secretive 12th House where your need for privacy grows stronger. Quiet time with one gentle person is all the entertainment you want, unless you’re so much in need of some rest that you’ll be even happier if everyone leaves you alone.

Happy, Happy Thursday! TGIF and a loooong weekend ahead!

Hello world, how are you today? You can definitely tell Summer is here. The temperatures here are almost in the middle 90’s and you can tell it. I have a wonderful case of sun poisoning on my arms. My fault, I am a red-head and we don’t tan. I wouldn’t tan if someone paid me too.  Besides it’s my own darn fault, I was outside for hours playing with the wildcat kittens and no sunscreen nothing on me.  And now I am paying for it. In case, some of you don’t know what sun poisoning is, like my doctor (neurologist). I couldn’t believe it, I had got up and got some of their cool packs and had one on my arm when he came in. He didn’t care but he wanted to know what was wrong with my arm. I told him sun poisoning and he said, “what’s that?” (Hmmm, I thought doctors would know this stuff :s ).  Back to what it is, sorry, sun poisoning doesn’t hurt. It is where you have had excessive amounts of sun in the past and your skin just can’t take anymore rays. Small, prickly bumps pop out on you and it itches like the devil. If you scratch too much, you will have some awful scars left on you when it clears up. I have one down by were my watch will be, that is absolutely horrible. There was three bumps there together and I scratched and scratched and I am going to be left with a bad scar. Enough about sun-poisoning……..

We went yesterday afternoon to release the wildcat kittens. They are finally big enough to care for theirselves and I don’t want to keep them too long. If I do that, they will come to think all humans are friendly and kind and that could be very dangerous for them. Hubby and I loaded the cages on the back of our four-wheelers. We rode to the creek bed. I went to the back to both cages and opened the doors. I walked away and called the cats. One jumped out and followed me a little bit. The other two decided to join their brother. They got to looking around and playing. My hubby told me they would be fine and it was time to go. My eyes swelled with tears and I got on my four-wheeler and started back up the creek. Too my delight and my hubby’s dismay, I felt the back of my wheeler go down and then a thump! I turned around and it was one of the little cats we were trying to release. Hubby stopped and here came the other two just a running. I was so happy, I got down laughing and crying. Hubby walked over to me about half pissed and asked me, “what now?”  I told him that I guessed we would have to bring them out more and more to reintroduce them to the wild. So we shut the cage doors and off we traveled. I cried all the way back but I didn’t let hubby see me. They were tears of joy, I have become so attached to these three little guys it ain’t even funny. To a person who has never worked with wild animals, you might not understand how you can fall in love with some of the most vicious animals on the planet. It just happens. The more you are around the animal, the more you start to become attached even while they are showing their teeth at you, lol! Then the animal starts to trust you, cuddle up beside you and then you know, in that animal’s own special way they love you too. It is a wonderful experience that I wish everyone would have at least once. Maybe then, there wouldn’t so much cruelty and killing of these precious creatures.

*Personal Note*

I have never mentioned it but I foster animals for two local clinics. I have fostered about everything under the sun except snakes. No snakes, never!
