Dog-o-scopes for the week of July 12th - July 18th

Aries- March 21 – April 19

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

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? You're definitely in the mood to push through to make your life bigger and better. Aries has a competitive spirit – but for you, winning is everything. If you've felt held back recently, you're coming back with your eye on the prize.

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.

Just when you had got used to the simple life, Jupiter and Pluto are here to remind you to get back in the mix. An opportunity is arising that feels too good to miss, tempting you out of your groove in order to experience life on a grander scale. You feel it's time to go for it.

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.

Holding back isn't your style, so you're intrigued by new potential that piques your curiosity. Perhaps on one level it's all too much. Yet if you don't explore what's on offer you'll never know just how good it could be.

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).

Every cell in your being is receiving the pulsing energy of Jupiter and Pluto who are directly opposite you in the sign of Capricorn. They act as a lighthouse, showing you how to navigate the territory but also the possibility of landing something you've always wanted.

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.

Leos never do things by halves. So you're totally up for the air of largesse that permeates this week. Besides, you've felt that recent times have cramped your style and restricted your Leo pzazz and self- expression. So, now is the time to raise your sights and even take a leap of faith designed to uplevel everything.

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.

Strong cosmic forces could sweep you off your feet this week. Whether that feels euphoric or dangerous or even both, you need to find a way to steady yourself. Meeting what happens in a grounded way means that you retain your earthy practicality. Even if your spirit wants to run.

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.

Developments are showing signs of promise that can make you either giddy with delight or unsettled. Life is moving on and the shape of it is changing. However, what seems like an intervention into the status quo could soon reveal itself to be thrillingly welcome.

Scorpio- October 23 – November 21

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

Scorpios are brilliant at taking on something that is both demanding and complex – which is just as well as the universe has got something for you with your name on it. This is potentially life-changing and offers you a platform that will shift and stretch your mental landscape whilst delivering what you most desire.

Sagittarius-  November 22 – December 21

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

You're on the verge of a 'big deal'. Whether this is financial, emotional, or both it seems your stake, investment, pay-off or involvement requires you to take the whole thing very seriously indeed. This isn't the time to act on blind faith. You will need to take a leap, but only after careful calculations.

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.

As Jupiter and Pluto convene in Capricorn you're being shown that there's more to your life-story than hoiking yourself up the mountain. Ultimately, the qualities you possess signal to others that the dog spirit is vastly resilient and resourceful. That big step you're taking is for all mankind!

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 Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto are all positioned in the secret weapon area of your chart, pups could under-estimate you. They will see exactly what you're made of towards the end of this year and into the early part of this decade. For now, you're exploring all the possibilities – which are many and plentiful.

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.

Inner strength and quiet confidence say more than any amount of show off and bluster. You're getting hold of the strength you have inside and the sense that you can be the alchemist of your life's experiences. Going for gold is your new target.
