(No Ratings Yet)

BNN presents a weekly horoscope for 13th – 19th July…

#Aries: the time you spend with others this week will bring you many pleasant emotions. You mood will improve and you will recover your strength. But do not take on duties of other people; value your own time.

#Taurus: don’t be hasty with conclusions – not everything is the way it seems at first glance. You will have to make an important decision this week, so be very careful before making a decision. Stars will send new opportunities your way: do try and use them.

#Gemini: don’t worry if the first half of the week seems unproductive to you – the second half will let you be more productive than ever. Heart to heart conversations can save relationships and make discoveries for you.

#Cancer: stop running around aimlessly – dedicate at least one day to yourself… Enjoy the silence, listen to yourself. Let out the negative emotions you have been keeping inside all this time. Learn to spot the good things around you.

#Leo: thoughts of your other half will accompany you throughout the entire week. You will notice a lot of things you have been missing lately. Be patient and draw borders – don’t let others sit on your head!

#Virgo: spend time outside. It will help you sort out your thoughts and open up your heart. Go have some fun at the end of the week. Stars promise success and excitement!

#Libra: others are starting to notice changes within you – don’ stop! Don’t be too tough on yourself. Spend time on a hobby you like. Time to meet new people. Be patient and finish your work. You may experience a romantic adventure at the end of the week… if you don’t miss the opportunity!

#Scorpio: time to think about your life; it’s never too late to change! Think positive, and luck will smile upon you. Defend your opinion and your values. Some things will leave your life, but it is for the best, as changes will come to your life soon.

#Sagittarius: remember that your actions affect the people around you. Time for changes: let go of the old and find space for the new in your life! Don’t waste time on people who are not worthy of you. You cannot hope to influence the flow of time, so don’t worry. Look for inner peace.

#Capricorn: don’t make decisions this week if you don’t know all facts. Better wait for a bit. It is also a good idea not to stress yourself over things you can’t change. Enjoy yourself, and the week will fly by.

#Aquarius: expand your knowledge: participate in interesting events. Harsh words can offend people close to you. The more we give, the more we receive. Don’t be lazy – do your work so that you can finally rest on weekends.

#Pisces: let the week flow on its own – your life needs something unpredictable. Be patient, changes take place slowly. Results of those changes, however, will be spectacular. If it seems like your efforts are for naught – stop and think for a second. Trust in your instinct and you will make a big discovery for yourself.
