FOR WEEK BEGINNING
JULY 7, 2015
Until July 23 you will be busy with domestic
routines. Some re-organisation of the
household may be necessary, especially for
those who are on the move. You should be
particularly active during July 8-10, with an
added emphasis on domestics. Family priorities
will take precedence over many other matters,
as will residential considerations.
There aren't any problems you can't handle
during July 8-10, although you'll need to watch
what you say. This is an excellent time to catch
up with the neglected aspects of your life. The
intricate details of your financial situation need
to be examined in the time between July 9 and
July 23, especially with day-to-day management.
July 13, 14, 22, 23 produce the best results.
The organisation of property matters, or
contracts around the sale of a property or
a lease, will demand much of your attention
over the few weeks from July 9. July 8-10
accentuates people contact. This is also a good
time to get in touch with what you really want
out of life and plan how to get it. There's also
extra money coming your way then.
A fairly routine time is indicated for working
Cancerian natives during July 8-10, regardless
of the type of role you fulfil. You stand head
and shoulders above others around you. Over
the few weeks from July 9, there will be many
instances when you will wish that you could get
away from the hectic pace of life, especially on
July 13-19, 22, 23.
Until July 23 issues associated with friendships,
personal goals and finances, communications
or contractual matters will distract you. You
should be able to make a little extra money on
the side. Openness of mind leads to growth,
something that will be evident in some small
way during July 8-10. For Leo, contact is
indicated with a variety of people and ideas.
July 8-10's lunar trends bring considerations
of a financial or ethical nature into focus.
Personal feelings run deep, prompted by
social developments and prompting you to
probe. The fourteen-day period you enter on
July 9 is excellent for furthering your own
ambitions, particularly if they are career
orientated. The reasons: a sharp mind and
There is a strong need for personal contact
during July 8-10, and it won't be easy to hide
these feelings. It is likely that you'll be working
closely with others then. Greater independence
and initiative are required in handling your
business affairs between July 9 and July 23.
Some Librans will be looking at travelling long
distances in connection with work.
The usual call of work will beckon during
July 8-10, with many of you even taking
it home. You are also more vulnerable to
outside influences, so watch your diet. Between
July 9 and July 23 it will be necessary to seek
advice on the state of your financial affairs
or your emotions. You may not view advice
You're doing something creative with your
home. July 8-10 should bring a round of
enjoyable activities and contacts, although you
may be troubled by developments at times. At
the very least, you will feel good about yourself.
The management of your daily business affairs
is of greater concern to you between July 9 and
July 23. Relationships require a considerable
amount of effort to maintain.
The Moon in your fourth solar house throws
light on property matters, domestic and family
affairs during July 8-10. Personal connections
are important then. For the self-employed,
these few weeks from July 9 will prove to be
quite hectic, especially on July 13, 14, 22, 23,
with partnership and marital responsibilities
dominating events too.
July 8-10 is a reasonably busy time, as the
bustle of life sweeps you along in its tide. All
your communications will be coloured with an
added depth of feeling. Children may be a little
more demanding than usual during July 9 to
July 23, so you will have to make greater efforts
in planning your daily tasks. During July 15-19
difficulties are experienced.
Money is accentuated during July 8-10: you
seem to be managing affairs in your usual
style. You have a knack of making small things
work for you in this regard. During the fourteen
days to July 23 Piscean natives will be more
inclined to pursue some form of recreation
that provides mental stimulation, especially on
July 13, 14, 22, 23.

AUTHOR TO SPEAK
ABOUT ANZAC BOOK
Australian author Peter Rees will
reveal how he put together the stories
of wartime female heroines in his
popular book The Anzac Girls. Rees

battlefronts these nurses endured using
diaries and letters, at a public talk from
2pm on Sunday at Tuggeranong
Homestead. The Canberra author has
applied his years of research skills as a
former political correspondent and
award-winning journalist to his works.

Along with aiming to beat last year s
fundraising target of $50,000, Mr

of a band called Brittle Jack, he said.
