Your daily horoscope: 26 July 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You don’t seem to be short of admirers at the moment – in fact you have rarely been so popular. But you cannot accept each and every social invitation that comes your way, not unless you want to exhaust yourself. Be selective in your partying.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Don’t take what others tell you too seriously today. It could be their kind words are genuine but it is just as likely they are saying what they think you would like to hear so as to catch you off your guard. You don’t need flattery.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

If you are bored with your social scene then change it. There is a really interesting party going on somewhere close by right at this moment and if you make an effort you will find it. Or why not throw a celebration of your own?

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

You cannot see the whole picture concerning a money matter or business issue at the moment, so don’t make any snap decisions. The planets may be tempting you to take some kind of risk but you are too smart to throw your money away.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

With Venus, planet of love, moving through your sign this is the ideal time to remind those you care for how much they mean to you. Don’t worry if they do not respond with quite the same enthusiasm. Not everyone is as expressive as you.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Others can cut corners and break rules if they wish but that is not an option for you at the moment. Don’t worry if your rivals pull ahead of you over the next few days because their underhand methods will come back to hurt them.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

No matter what your differences with a certain individual may be you must make an effort to find a compromise solution. There is much you can accomplish over the next few days but you won’t get far on your own, so find ways to work together.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Steer clear of those who rub you the wrong way. Some people are so full of their own importance they think they can do or say anything and get away with it, but you know that what goes around will come around again sooner or later.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Keep your ideas to yourself over the next 24 hours because if you let slip what you are going to do you may find that someone tries to disrupt your plans. Sometimes you can be too friendly for your own good. Don’t give too much away.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

It may seem as if certain matters are going against you but there is no need to worry. The sun in Leo at this time of year makes the going seem tougher than it really is, so hang in there and expect your luck to change soon.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

You may be anxious to bring a feud to an end but don’t give too much away. If you are to reach a successful compromise it must come from a position of strength. If you give in too easily it will be taken as a sign of weakness.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

The current cosmic set-up may make it appear as if partners and work colleagues have got it in for you but have they really or is it you who is overreacting? Most likely it’s the latter, so don’t take anything (especially yourself) too seriously.
