Horoscopes for your dog for the week of July 5th- July 11th

Aries- March 21 – April 19

The Ram - because of Aries’ brave, tenacious ability to climb to the top of the mountain, no matter what.

In the wake of Sunday's eclipsed Full Moon, you're still processing what's going on and with Mercury continuing its retrograde motion and challenging Mars in your sign this is not the time to bark things out. Instead get into the zen state! Mid-month you will power forward and make up any lost ground.

Taurus- April 20 – May 20

The Bull - because of their resilience and stubbornness! And, like a bull, they can be both frighteningly fierce or serenely gentle.

As a patient Taurean you can sit in place for a very long time. In recent months this capacity has been your big bone. Yet now openings are appearing, there is availability for you to make a move in terms of destination to the park. Even if you don't act on it immediately, having something up your paw will feel good.

Gemini-  May 21 – June 20

The Twins - because of their duality, versatility, and ability to talk twice as fast and say twice as much as everyone else.

This could be a week where you feel you should resort to Plan B – in fact, with Mercury retrograde Plan C and D might also have a place. Whilst certain doors may have slammed, there's no need to paw the handle of the next one before you've thought about what's right for you. From Sunday, the right choices appear before you without any of the tug-o-war.

Cancer- June 21 – July 22

The Crab - because they are secretive and guarded. A hard shell protects the soft flesh beneath (their extreme emotional sensitivity).

As Mars clashes with Mercury which is moving backwards through your sign you're likely to feel highly sensitive and reactive. The recent lunar eclipse has also made you aware that long-standing issues must be resolved. However, you may not realise that you do in fact occupy a power seat that is all yours on the 14th/15th, so save your desire to engage in little skirmishes for a victory ahead.

Leo- July 23 – August 22

The Lion - because of their regal and noble personality, they love to lead and naturally protect those they perceive as being vulnerable.

It may seem as if others are trying to force your paw over future plans. Yet you really can't commit just because it suits them and before you have all the information at your paws. Point this out and very soon you'll feel confident of exactly what you want to do. What's more, it will be in everyone's best interest.

Virgo- August 23 – September 22

The Virgin - because of their pure intentions, and their modest, conscientious nature. They’re often pictured holding a sheaf of wheat which symbolizes the fertilization of ideas/skills to benefit the world.

Petty issues are likely to assume far more significance than they deserve. As a details-oriented pup it's easy for you to get drawn into situations which by rights should not be yours to solve. Waiting until mid-July would be a smart move as Mercury will return to direct motion on the 12th followed by new options that are genius.

Libra- September 23 – October 22

The Scales - because Librans are ALL about balance. Keeping everything on an even keel and behaving with fairness are their driving motivations.

Fiery Mars is having an inflammatory effect on relationships of all kinds and this could be a warming flame that lights up the next six months or a scalding heat that burns your tail. This week you get to see just how hot things can become. If you use your Libran charm offensive all will be well.

Scorpio- October 23 – November 21

The Scorpion - because Scorpios are kinda’ dangerous, a secretive creature which can poison its enemies if riled… beware!

Rising above everyday challenges is important as you need to save your mojo for mid-month. By the end of this week an invisible grace will be a healing balm on any sore spots and you'll find yourself in-line for a major elevation in terms of plans and projects. So for now, least said, soonest mended.

Sagittarius-  November 22 – December 21

The Archer - because they aim high and true, love the outdoors, and enjoy the thrill of the case.

There are fabulous opportunities lining up on your horizon, so no need to paw at bones this week. Of course, it's tempting. But any rash move could endanger your main chance. Timing is everything and with Mercury still reversing through the heavens until next Sunday, less is more.

Capricorn- December 22 – January 19

The Goat - because they are a determined animal who rises up the path by taking advantage of every foothold. Always climbing.

You're currently in a hugely important phase in your life. Last Sunday's lunar eclipse in Capricorn began a new cycle that re-sets the emphasis for the coming months. In addition, a stellar line of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn will be actioned by the Sun mid-month which asks you to uplevel your destiny by making the right choices. For this week, contemplation rather than a pre-emptive strike is advisable.

Aquarius - January 20 – February 18
The Water-Bearer - symbolically, the water represents truth, which Aquarians deliver freely and fairly to the world. A truth-sayer!

Whilst some of the pressure is off due to Saturn releasing you from his grip at the start of this month, you've still got a lot on your plate. They say old habits die hard, but right now you're able to cut those leashes and change things up. A radical shift is sometimes easier for you than minor titivation.

Pisces- February 19 – March 20

Two fishes tied to one another, swimming in opposite directions- because all Pisceans swim amidst shifting emotional currents, and are plagued by both conflicting desires and extremes of temperament.

You need to be super-sharp this week as situations can turn on a dime and knowing exactly how to play will be essential. Next Sunday's wonderful link between the Sun and Neptune in Pisces connects you to the miracle mind-set. Accessing this helps you turn things from a potential disaster into a triumph.
