Award-winning astrologer Yasmin Boland reveals what the stars have in store for you.

By Yasmin Boland
This month is the perfect time to look at things with a fresh perspective!
Keep on scrolling to find out what is happening with your star sign over the next few weeks.

LEO or LEO RISING: Jul 24 - Aug 23

This month brings you a restart, so think about where you want to be 12 months from now. It's also definitely time to move on in one relationship. Let it go – be it the relationship itself or an upset you're stewing over. Healthy daily routines are your saviour this month.
In fact, the more effort you put into making your life healthy and functional between now and the end of the year, literally, the better the rest of your life will be.

VIRGO or VIRGO RISING: Aug 24 - Sep 23

Every star sign has a big issue this month. For you, it could be two: sex and/or money. One or both of these issues look pretty stressful - and maybe not in a good way. You need to heal your issues around sex and/or money.
Work out where any anxiety you have around sex and/or came from and forgive all concerned. Also make sure you haven't fallen back into the Virgo trap of spending too much time helping everyone else that you end up being annoyed and resentful.

LIBRA or LIBRA RISING: Sep 24 - Oct 23

Watch out that you don't get too argumentative with the people you love this month. It looks like you could be clashing with people, saying too much, maybe even getting shouty.
You have learned a lot about dealing with people in your personal life – use those lessons, otherwise, what was the point? Sexually, you're actually pretty hot right now. Remember that overall, you're in a cycle which is all about healing any issues you have with the people you love most, your beloved, ex and best friends included.

As much as you might be trying your hardest to get ahead and make your way though life, it's as though certain people have it in for you or are hell-bent on impeding your progress. Would you believe they're actually soul mates whose mission it is to make you work a little harder for what you want? Don't give up.
In fact, these people are not your biggest worry now anyway. Your biggest obstacle is all the fears and doubts you're holding onto. Let them go and everything else will fall into place.

The biggest obstacle between you, happiness and financial success right now is… you. To be more specific, it's your self-esteem. So how highly do you really rate yourself? The more you can see how amazing you are, the more fun you'll have this month (and forever) and weirdly enough, the more money you will make too.
Rate yourself highly! Make sure you use all the lessons the past few years have taught you about cash now, too. They will stand you in amazing stead.

Not going to sugar-coat it, this could be a rather intense month. The brash planet of anger, Mars, is irritated and is directing anger at your sign. In other words, you could be feeling all your feelings and even feeling a bit picked on, that's for sure.
However if you can keep a level head and live consciously as you go through the ups and downs, the heaven will reward you by taking the pressure off soon enough.

Your mind is your best friend and your worst enemy this month. If you know how to meditate, do it. If you don't, now is a really good time to learn. It will only take you a few minutes online to find some amazing guided meditations.
If you use your mind well, you will have some amazing conversations and ideas now, which move your life forwards. Or you could spend the whole month arguing…

PISCES or PISCES RISING: Feb 20 - Mar 20

There could be some upsets about money this month. Given the dramas so many people have been through in 2020, it's not surprising that cash is an emotive issue for a lot of people.
One way to avoid is to stay away from mixing business and pleasure if you can. If you're doing your best to earn a living, but feel like you're running into one challenge after enough, you're right! Get through this month and it all gets easier. You're actually in an overall healing cycle to do with cash.

ARIES or ARIES RISING: Mar 21 - Apr 20

This is a time when you can reinvent yourself professionally, but it's not going to be smooth-sailing. So be prepared for some challenges as you grow, especially this month, if you want to succeed on your own terms.
Careful you don't push the powers-that-be too far or too hard! You have the planet of drive and determination, Mars, in your sign right now, which is a brilliant thing. Mars is your ruling planet and gives you your vavavavoom. But it can also make you extra argumentative!

TAURUS or TAURUS RISING: Apr 21 - May 21

If you want a good month, there is one thing you need to do; you need to work through your fears. You haven't been this challenged in terms of fear derailing for you two years – maybe ever.
So work out where your fears came from them and work through them to get past them. The part of your chart that's being stirred up now is more or less the part of your chart where you stuff the things you don't want to face up to. Deal with these issues and you will change your life.

GEMINI or GEMINI RISING: May 22 - June 22

Money is still a big issue for you and will be for some time. The thing is that you have three of the most important and biggest planets, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in your Money Zone. There's no avoiding money issues now! If you're in "financial recovery mode", there are a few tips for you from the skies:
  1. Be optimistic but realistic.
  2. Get rid of anything you know is a waste of your money now.
  3. Don't get involved with friends financially if you can avoid it.
  4. Learn from past financial dramas.

Sorry to have to report that August is going to be a testing month for you when it comes to work and your most important relationships.
While it would be nice to think we can all sit around having a nice time, you have work to do if you want to get on at work and in your personal life. 2020 has been a strange year and we all have a bit of catch-up to do. One of your big lessons now is to be nice, even if someone is provoking you.
