Horoscopes: 30 July – 5 August 2020


Francis Bevan has put together his weekly horoscopes for the week 30 July – 5 August 2020. This week’s celebrity birthday is Jessica Mauboy.

Celebrity birthday

Jessica Mauboy

4 August 1989

Neptune and the sign of Pisces govern Jessica’s life during the coming 12 months. She now has the chance to let go of past hurts and deep emotional issues. She needs to spend a little time caring for herself rather than others, as it’s likely some of her friends will drain her of energy with their own problems. Jessica may discover a whole new aspect to her career, which involves a more compassionate and deeper understanding of herself. Getting a greater sense of achievement from her work will be a must for her during the year ahead.

ARIES 21 Mar – 20 Apr

Now is not the time for confrontation, Aries! While you may feel like an unresolved issue needs pressing, it’s best to leave it alone and let it resolve itself. The risk for miscommunication, resulting in high tensions and fractured relationships, is too high. Go gently this week.

TAURUS 21 Apr – 21 May

Try to reign in your enthusiasm this week, and let your instincts guide you on the right path. You’ll instantly know if you’ve made the right choice when it comes to matters of the heart, and you’ll be able to organise your work, home and social lives to fit your current mood.

GEMINI 22 May – 21 June

A sense of calm and stability will wash over you this week, and this will shine through in all your endeavours. Ever the social butterfly, the urge to connect with friends and strangers alike will be strong, and you must resist temptation to travel too far out of your comfort zone.

CANCER 22 June – 22 July

It’s important to stay positive this week, especially in the face of some unwelcome news or hard times. Turning to the domestic sphere and taking on an organisational task may prove to be a welcome distraction from the goings on of the world.

LEO 23 July – 23 Aug

It’s self-care time, Leo! While your work is especially important to you at the moment, taking care of you should be at the top of the to-do list. Block out some time to re-set, and you’ll be back to kicking career goals in no time.

VIRGO 24 Aug – 23 Sept

Hey, Virgo, chill out! While an impending sense of doom may loom over you and your relationships with others, it might do you some good to take a step back, take a look at the situation with fresh eyes and reassess – getting out of your own head can work wonders.

LIBRA 24 Sept – 23 Oct

You are smashing through your goals and looking good doing it. While the odds are in your favour this week, be careful not to overestimate your standing in certain circles. Throwing your weight around will get you nowhere and, in some cases, might cause turbulence in an important relationship.

SCORPIO 24 Oct – 22 Nov

Now is not the time to be timid, Scorpio! If you know what you want, or feel your voice isn’t being heard, make sure people know that you didn’t come to play. Connection with family and friends will be critical for you this week, so ensure lines of communication are open. 

SAGITTARIUS 23 Nov – 21 Dec

If you’ve been feeling smitten, now is the time to act on your feelings and express your desires. Make sure any declarations you make are sincere and clear, though – you don’t want to be untangling a web of confusion and/or deception.

CAPRICORN 22 Dec – 20 Jan

Keep your eye out for an olive branch this week, Capricorn. It’s time to sit back and listen up – now would be an excellent time to clear the air with someone, or address something that’s been weighing on your mind. Be careful not to let tempers flare and take control of the situation.

AQUARIUS 21 Jan – 19 Feb

No good deed goes unpunished, and that’s certainly true for you this week, Aquarius. While you may have the best intentions, be careful your words and actions don’t come back to bite you. A romantic relationship may progress, while friendships might be strained.

PISCES 20 Feb – 20 Mar

You will find some joy in getting out and about this week, whether it be alone, exploring a new place, or a long overdue catch up with family and friends. Some people may test you, but you will be able to rise above it and your relationship will be better for it.
