Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 9th August - Tuesday 15th August

Aries 21st March-21st April

There’s a good chance this week that, in an effort to both distract yourself in one sense, and clear the mammoth amount of tasks you have set yourself in another (probably again as a distraction) that your stress levels could soar and your health suffer as a result. Sometimes there really is nothing for it but to sit still and digest what’s going on in your life. There’s no getting away from dealing with ‘your stuff’, not the important stuff anyway.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

We’re still on a recurring or resurfacing vibe this week Taurus. This week though, it may feel as if a part of your past has come to revisit you. You could fall back into old (and maybe bad) habits. Old friends or old lovers could resurface, or you may decide to revisit a project or pasttime you had put away. This is all part of a clearing out process, but it might feel like ‘one step forwards, two steps back’ thanks to Mercury turning retrograde.

Gemini 22nd May-21st June

It’s all about the spoken word this week Gemini, and in particular, about speaking your truth. There’s a good chance of some kind of outburst, the kind that surprises you yourself once you’ve realised what you’ve said, but mainly because its something you were denying all along, or never realised it was something so important to you. Now it seems like the only thing that matters. Any message you need to get out there, now is the time to send it.

Cancer 22nd June-22nd July

Have a look around your inner circle Cancer, chances are there are those with whom you gel, and those you’re not quite so open with. It pays, every now and again, especially in a professional sense, to rethink your network and who you’re spending time on and with. If the exchange is not proving to be mutually beneficial, it may be time to rearrange things. Likewise, for those who definitely enrich your life, let them know you appreciate them.

Leo 23rd July-23rd August

Anything that’s been hidden or unclear will come to light now Leo, especially anything pertaining to partnerships, business ventures and committed relationships. It could be make or break for some. Get advice by all means but don’t get so many opinions that your own intuition is drowned out. If you start to feel overwhelmed, don’t be afraid to ask for help, you don’t have to take everything on yourself, match your tasks to your skill set.

Virgo 24th August-23rd September

Sometimes we need to blow things out of the water to more clearly see out way, and there’s a sense of that around you this week Virgo. It could be a massive declutter, or it could be a complete letting go of something that, as much as you’ve tried to make it, is just not working for you. No point in flogging the proverbial dead horse - as soon as you let go, you may see an obvious new path ripe for the taking.

Libra 24th September-23rd October

It’s time to decide if you’re in or out Libra. Where in your life are you feeling this? Work, relationships, friendships? Is it that you wish someone else would decide where they stand, and you feel like until they do you can’t move forward? Take back the power and the control over your life. Own your own feelings, take responsibility for your own behaviour and decide where it is you want your life to go next.

Scorpio 24th October-22nd November

Mercury’s latest retrograde is taking place in your house of technology and will also affect anything were groups or teamwork is key. We spoke about flexibility a couple of weeks back and now more than ever, this is what’s needed as plans change on the fly. Communications, especially electronic ones, will be likely to be delayed, mislayed or just plain disappear so follow anything important up with a phone call just to be sure.

Sagittarius 23rd November-21st December

Someone from your past could resurface and it might not be the happiest of reunions, especially if their departure was soured by their behaviour or their involvement in some kind of drama. If you’ve closed the door for good on this particular relationship, the advice is to think twice before opening it again. Don’t confide in that one person in your circle who loves a bit of gossip, you’ll be hearing it back second-hand if you do.

Capricorn 22nd December-20th January

Typical, just as the holidays arrive Mercury decides to go retrograde again. Take all the usual precautions - twice! Check the details of your travel plans, check your emails regularly to make sure nothing has changed. Confirm any bookings at hotels, car rentals etc. Check that you’ve packed everything you need and that any arrangements you’ve made regarding your house/pet etc are copperfastened before you go.

Aquarius 21st January-19th February

You may find yourself at the centre of some kind of power struggle in your life, more than likely with someone you are extremely close to (partner, children, siblings, friends). Be careful how you handle this and try your best not to fly off the handle when you feel your buttons are being pushed. If you’re confident in your position, allow them to make all the moves, chances are they’ll make a wrong one.

Pisces 20th February-20th March

Don’t read too much in anything at the moment Pisces, and beware thinking ‘it’s a sign’ (as we sometimes do). Lunar eclipses like the one just past, can blur the line between falsehoods and reality, and where usually they make things a little clearer, in this case with Mercury heading retrograde, it could be that you get the wrong end of the stick. Beware also of people who tell you they know exactly what you need.

    Time for a breakJust as the height of Summer begins it seems that it is also the time when our politicians begin their yearly departure from Dail Eireann. While not many professions get as much holiday time as politicians do you have to ask the question whether they merit such long breaks?There are many who would immediately answer that they don't really deserve such long holidays, that they barely seem to spend any time in the Dail at all and after all they are well remunerated for the long hours …
