Your Monthly Horoscope: July 2016

Astrologer Yasmin Boland reveals what’s in the stars for Glossies this month…

It looks like there are some fun and games ahead for you this month as driven Mars moves through your fun zone. You should be feeling more motivated than you have been in a while to get out and about, catching up with old friends, making new ones and even going to the odd party.
Your Power Day: July 1
Beauty Tip: Your love life is also looking very promising this month so think about your makeUp routine in relation to your love life. Does your (potential?) beloved prefer a natural look? Indulge him/her!

Delays on the home front or related to family should be well and truly easing up now. If you have been trying to cajole your family or the people you live with into doing something, you could find you are more persuasive as of this month. House moves/buys are also really well-starred.
Your Power Day: July 16
Beauty Tip: 30 Venus, the planet of beauty and good looks, is in your sign this month which means you’re effectively being tapped with the celestial beauty stick. In other words, you’re allowed to be very vain.

One of the great things about Virgos is that you’re slow to anger. You don’t tend to lose your cool. However that can work against you sometimes because you bottle up your feelings. If you don’t express negative thoughts, they can fester! This month you’ll find it easier to speak your mind in a nice Virgo way.
Your Power Day: July 26
Beauty Tip: If you feel as though you’re stuck in a makeup and skincare rut, this is the month to make some changes, especially towards the end of July. Try at least one totally new look or a completely different product.

Your Power Day: July 12
