It’s time for us all to take a break from the daily routine. Let’s embrace the chance to relax and change the pace. But are the planets smiling on our plans? Let’s take a look.
With major planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto retrograde throughout the summer, and being joined by Uranus on the 20th of August, any efforts to implement change and progress in our lives may stall out unless we have taken care of the details. So let’s stay upbeat and just go with the flow.

Planets in Aquarius are urging you to delve into some of the deepest recesses of your soul. Change is there on an existential level, circumstances may seem beyond your control. On a material plane, try to avoid sinking into debt, live as frugally as Sa7el allows and celebrate the joy of summer to the max on the 3rd of August when friends will be chatty and upbeat.
Summer focus: Be flexible to make the most of the rollercoaster ride of summer.
If you have a set idea of what you want to transpire this summer, you may end up spinning your wheels. In other words, expect the unexpected, and all sorts of fun things might happen. A lot hangs on your relationships, and sometimes it may seem that others are calling the shots. Be patient, there will be some high points that make it all worthwhile.

After being bogged down with work for so long, nothing is going to stop you hanging out with your ‘besties’.

Summer focus: Take care of your health and it will take care of you.
The past period may have seen you so bogged down in daily work routines that you have neglected to find the right work-leisure balance. Virgo is quite capable of feeling huge pangs of guilt if any small task remains undone. Try to change your routine, slot in some ‘me’ time and remember to eat regular nutritious meals. Heard it all before? So, maybe there is some truth there.
Summer focus: Tough things out in July and wait for a better August.

If you plan to spend time on the road, make sure your car is well maintained. It looks like an action-packed summer, with lots of family visits, and casual get-togethers.

Please, Capricorn, take a break. When it comes to keeping your nose to the grindstone you put the rest of the world to shame. Finances should be improving, and are you entering a new phase of opportunity and stability in that area. Allow yourself a few indulgences, you have earned them.
Summer focus: Slow down a little.
Let’s face it. You also need a break. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind these past months, and you need time to regain your focus.

Just watch that extra kilos don’t pile on.
Summer focus: Find your inner peace.

You need time to reflect on which direction your life is going in. Meditate, relax, commune with nature, and things will become clearer.
