We’ve basically made it to the “hump day” of the year now and it’s time to take a step back and evaluate how much you’ve achieved in these last few months. Whether it’s your career or personal life you want to focus on going forward, here’s what the stars have in store for you depending on your Star Sign. (Check here for Libra to Pisces!)
Pythagoras Child, Horoscope, Astrology, Zodiac, Aries
You’ve had a whirlwind of a year so far Aries and it isn’t about to stop yet! The second half of the year promises a wild ride with both ups and downs. Luckily, the remainder of this year blesses you with a new surge of energy to tackle on whatever opportunities or obstacles that may come your way.
Watch out for opportunities in the workplace. Creative ventures work the best for you if they showcase your skills and talents. Be careful, however, as all this energy and drive can end up backfiring if you’re not careful. Aries can end up being impulsive or biting off more than they can chew. Avoid taking risks just for the sake of it.
Watch out for your mental health in the remaining half of the year. Aries have a tendency to over exhaust themselves. You may get easily frustrated over small problems as well. Learn to prioritise your goals and manage your schedule. You may also find your character and values being tested in the following months.
You may find yourself clashing with people with different opinions. Most notably with women. Your hot-headed nature may find you in trouble. Avoid such conflicts and keep your communication channels clear and open. You will thank yourself at the end of the year when you look back at all the anxiety and frustration you managed to avoid.
Your sociability and confidence are also enhanced in the second half of the year. The positivity you exude can bolster your social and love life. People are naturally attracted to your fun loving and adventurous nature, bringing their own positive influence to you. Use the remainder of the year to build stronger relationships with those around you. Especially for Aries with children or families.
Pythagoras Child, Horoscope, Astrology, Zodiac, Taurus
It may be difficult to predict what exactly awaits Taurus’ in the second half of the year. You’re in for quite a journey. The following months are filled with ups and downs of all kinds. You may not always be prepared for the changes coming your way and will have to learn to be both flexible and adaptable.
You may feel as if you are underachieving, when in reality you’re making more progress than you realise. However, unexpected changes in the workplace may halt you suddenly. You may find yourself wanting to go in a different direction from your current path or starting up new projects. Don’t be afraid to embrace these desires.
The remainder of the year looks favourably upon new ideas and start-ups. Be careful in pursuing negotiations, especially when the holidays start rolling in. Your ability to turn the tide in your favour fluctuates heavily; your best bet might be to put off all talks until next year.
Your emotions may fluctuate just as much due to the changes coming your way. Taurus may feel unusually restless and develop bad habits or addictions to vent. Learn to channel those frustrations into positive motivators. Your social circle may expand as well. However, learn not to neglect your current friends. Be prepared as you may go from a full schedule to having your social life be put on ice at a moment’s notice.
Romance may be in the air for the next few months only if you are willing to seize it. Be careful about seeking advise from those around you to vent frustrations . It is also a good time to consider bonding with your family more. Relationships with those older than you are set to improve.
Pythagoras Child, Horoscope, Astrology, Zodiac, Gemini
Your mind and ability to communicate are your greatest assets for the remainder of this year, Gemini. They will help you navigate the emotional ups and downs that you may experience in the following few months.
You may find yourself yearning for something more down the path you’re headed. A growing restlessness may push you to seek out something new or look deeper into your current field of work. You may feel the desire to break through old barrier or defy the conventional rule in order to pursue your own interests and ideas.
Your ability to communicate these desires and ideas are enhanced for the remainder of the year. However, you should try to avoid negotiations and deals until you find yourself in a more stable position both physically and emotionally.
Physically, your health is quite stable. Mentally however, you may find yourself battling boredom. Your emotions may run high in the following months. You may find yourself more aware of your surroundings and be particularly sensitive to conflicts. Luckily, you are a great peacemaker among your friends and family. You may only falter if you let your personal feelings and emotions get in the way of your ability to arbitrate.
Your creativity and imagination are enhanced. You may find yourself more focused on recementing your personal goals, your family or even home redecoration. Your draw towards spiritual avenues and charity work can help you meet new people and improve your self-worth. Be cautious, however, as you may tend to sacrifice yourself to please others. This half of the year helps you to recognise your own value and explore your abilities.
Take this time to showcase your good nature to build both public image and strengthen bonds among your family, friends and colleagues.
Pythagoras Child, Horoscope, Astrology, Zodiac, Cancer
Look forward to the rest of the year, Cancer. Now is the time for self-discovery and rejuvenation. The following months promise to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and what your goals and relationships mean to you. Don’t be afraid to embrace the lessons you will learn.
You may find that your own idealism and imagination starts to spill over into other areas of your life. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as your creativity and imagination can aid you in standing out. You may even discover a hidden talent or find deeper meaning in your own work.
However, you must be careful to avoid blindly pursuing temptations of status or money and learn to ground yourself realistically. Success may come your way, but only if you pursue it in the small manageable steps.
People may test your patience this month. Nothing irks you more than remaining stagnant though. You are likely to pursue new activities; meet new people or increase the number of social events you have. You may feel more open and affectionate to what the world has to offer. This innocent naivety can be a refreshing new worldview, however, be careful as you are more vulnerable to being taken advantage off for your generosity. Luckily, your current family and friends will provide you more support.
Your increased empathy and sociability helps to attract people to you. All that good karma you’ve been building up helping others will eventually come back to you. Your intuition and sense of judgement also help you in seeking out someone that Is just right for you. Pursuing your romantic fantasies are also encouraged, especially at the end of this year. Now is the time to follow your dreams and put yourself first. You deserve it.
Pythagoras Child, Horoscope, Astrology, Zodiac, Leo
Look out Leo, you lead this month like a general leads their army. Across the battlefield with power and decisiveness. This is your time to build your own foundation and carve a steady path for yourself in life. This is a good year for personal growth and goal setting.
Stay alert when it comes to negotiations or working out deals in business. People won’t underestimate your skills and you shouldn’t overestimate yourself. The remainder of the year fully equips you with the skills to thrive in a competitive environment whether you are in a team set up or pursing your own venture. You still need to seize opportunities and understand your own shortcomings and limitations.
The remainder of the year may be messy and put a lot on your plate. You have the capacity to deal with all these challenges as long as you remain organised. It is advised that you start sorting out your goals for this and next year. Focus on the long-term future instead of short term desires that may harm you in the long run.
Tensions may spike up your blood pressure from all the work you have to deal with. It is important that you distract yourself from the hectic parts of your life with pleasant and relaxing activities. It may not be a good idea to take up any extreme sports or activities that could strain you. Be aware of your own emotional wellbeing as you can cave easily under pressure with all that’s going on.
Romance may take a backseat to your social relationships. What you may need more is support from your friends and family. Past regrets may come to haunt you and you should learn to let these ghosts rest. Focus on improving yourself and avoid impulsive decisions.
Pythagoras Child, Horoscope, Astrology, Zodiac, Virgo
Get ready for the next half of the year, Virgo. Like many other signs, you may find yourself reinventing and discovering new things about yourself. The more assured and comfortable you are in your own skin, the more likely you will find success in the avenues you pursue.
It is a good idea to cast a wide net for yourself in order to find success. Financial success is in the cards for you, but only if you play to the strengths of your creativity and inventiveness. Not all ventures may prove fruitful, so ensure you have a wide playing field. Make sure to keep your cards close to your chest. Be confident, but don’t start running before you even learn to walk.
Avoid overexploiting any one idea and don’t be afraid to question yourself if you are uncertain about your goals and priorities. The remaining few months may require some critical thinking on your part. You may need to rework your current team structure or consider bringing in new people or outsourcing if you find yourself in need of more time for brainstorming.
Virgos may prefer their own company more than others. It is not bad to take time to yourself since you will be doing a lot of reflecting. Avoid becoming too much of a desire. Despite your desire, you still shine in social events. However, remember to pace yourself and take time on your own when you need it.
Family matters may get in the way of romance. This is not a bad thing as you may already be more focused on redeveloping your own values. Towards the end of the year, your desire to put yourself out there may be more prominent. Until then, it’s not a bad idea just to focus on yourself.
