    WHAT STAR SIGN IS LIBERTY POOLE FROM LOVE ISLAND?

    A typical high-achieving Virgo, lovely Liberty is currently balancing a marketing degree with a waitressing job.

    Virgos are known for setting themselves very high standards, and the same can be said for their romantic interests. One of the biggest challenges for this sign is finding a partner who meets their expectations!

    Virgos are most compatible with other earth signs as well as Cancer and Pisces.

    WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ASCENDENT AND DESCENDENT SIGNS?

    The descendant sign in your natal chart is the opposite sign of your ascendant.

    Your ascendant, also called your rising sign is the third most important sign, behind your sun and moon signs.

    Our descendant sign, meanwhile, can be described as our shadow side.

    This sign will help to highlight things we have repressed or parts of our personality we may not be proud of.

    Interestingly, we are drawn to the qualities of this sign in people we meet and relationships we seek because, like the cliche says, opposites attract.

    WHAT’S THE MOST HONEST ZODIAC SIGN?

    The most honest sign of the zodiac has to be Virgo. Loyal, hardworking and measured this earth maiden will keep all the secrets.

    They’re so detail-driven, they’ll never stand you up and also make really great therapists because they tend to remember everything you tell them.

    We all need a Virgo shoulder to cry on every now and again, just make sure you split the bill after dinner.

    WHAT DOES ASTROLOGY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OLIVIA BUCKLAND AND ALEX BOWEN FROM LOVE ISLAND?

    This power couple have made it all the way from series 2 back in 2016.

    Olivia is a sturdy Capricorn while Alex is a proud Leo.

    These two signs aren't normally known for having strong compatibility, but taking a closer look at their birth charts it becomes apparent that both of them have the planet Venus (representing love, harmony and pleasure) in an earth sign.

    Olivia's Venus is in Capricorn while Alex's Venus is in Virgo.

    This could explain the couple's strong commitment to each other, because while their overall personalities are different they share similar values and aspirations.

    It definitely bodes well for their future together.

    HOROSCOPE TODAY, THURSDAY JULY 1

    ARIES

    March 21 to April 20

    Mars merges with Venus in the love department of your chart and speeds up the pace of a relationship.

    You are ready to lead in decision-making but do not confuse being bold with being reckless.

    At home, a family photograph that makes everyone smile has commercial potential, perhaps in an advert.

    TAURUS

    April 21 to May 21

    The sun shines on your values chart and working with people who appreciate your abilities means a lot.

    You are shrewd about finance and see the difference between generosity and being a soft touch.

    Venus is in your property chart and although it is good to show you can stick to a budget, share your emotions.

    GEMINI

    May 22 to June 21

    CANCER

    June 22 to July 22

    Mind-sharpening Mercury goes undercover and makes you the zodiac’s most intuitive sign.

    This gives you a powerful advantage where deals are to be done and your intriguing, sparky ideas can be cash generators too.

    LEO

    July 23 to August 23

    Venus contacts Mars in your personal sign, making you tender, passionate and playful.

    The downside is your need to be the centre of attention.

    You could be flattered into the wrong arms. There are two different sides to Leo – secretly shy and openly showing off.

    To find the right partner, let your smile lead.

    VIRGO

    August 24 to September 22

    You are the zodiac’s most surprising lover, with passion hidden by a calm personality.

    But you want your partner’s life to be perfect and this can make you come across as too controlling.

    Jupiter, luckiest of the planets, is rewinding and a relationship you might have made more of could be back on offer.

    LIBRA

    September 23 to October 23

    Strict Saturn, planet of business and success, lets you set your sights higher and a job you once considered too difficult is now perfect.

    SAGITTARIUS

    November 23 to December 21

    Your optimistic attitude, energy and sense of fun all shine bright.

    Just when it seemed a relationship was little more than wishful thinking, you could be asked an exciting love question.

    Even if you do not see yourself as the studious type, a chance to learn a special trade may be too good to miss.

    CAPRICORN

    December 22 to January 20

    Ambitious, clever and determined, you meet someone who shares these qualities with you. Yes, you could be soulmates.

    You are there to listen and advise each other and a business you run together could be starred for success.

    You make a remarkable couple but do not let work take over.

    AQUARIUS

    January 21 to February 18

    You are the zodiac’s coolest star and today’s line-up of Venus and Mars could give you unusual but brilliant ideas.

    At work, people are fascinated . . . but remember, romance in the office always needs very careful handling.

    You might not be money-minded but a cash offer for something you design is tempting.

    PISCES

    February 19 to March 20

    Being the most romantic sign sounds good but the more intense your feelings, the harder it is for a relationship to reach its potential.

    Your talent shines through and you could handle performing in front of a panel of formidable experts.

    As your confidence grows, your love moves show their real strength.

    WHEN IS JUPITER IN RETROGRADE IN 2021?

    Jupiter retrograde began on June 20 and it will last until October 18, meaning that this retrograde will rule all of summer 2021 and much of autumn.

    The planet Jupiter governs our social rather than personal sphere, meaning that the effects of this retrograde will be felt on a larger scale (e.g. family, society, and the world at large). 

    But don’t worry too much — in general, it is thought that Jupiter retrograde is a time to inspire reflection, growth, and deeper thought.

    There may also be confusion and stress rising to the surface, but this is likely to stimulate positive change and lead to new opportunities opening up, so be ready!

    WHAT IS THE MEANING AND SYMBOLISM OF ANGEL NUMBER 222?

    If you’ve been seeing 222 pop up on watches, receipts, page numbers, spreadsheets or anywhere else, chances are this is more than just a coincidence.

    Repeating numbers could be our angels trying to communicate with us, and knowing the secrets behind each number is the key to unlocking the message.

    In numerology, different numbers carry different significance, and when a number repeats itself its energy is even stronger.

    According to Well+Good, 222 and other angel numbers carry a variety of possible meanings. That’s why it’s essential to use your intuition to explore what the angels are telling you.

    LET’S TALK ABOUT LILITH

    We all know astrology involves studying the movements of the planets, as well as their mythology and overall meaning.

    However, those aren’t the only things we need to know.

    We know there are moons, rising signs and asteroids that play a vital role in understanding a person’s pysche, including their sex life – this is where little-known Lilith comes in.

    SIGN MOST LIKELY TO PICK THE RIGHT BALLS IN THE LOTTERY?

    The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Which sign is most likely to win the lottery? Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

    According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

    The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

    Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

    WHAT IS A VENUS SIGN?

    Basically, the function of Venus astrologically is to tell us how we gel with people and give and receive love.

    The planet of beauty, love and extreme pleasure tells us a heap of things about the kind of person we are, who we are attracted to and what turns us on.

    It tells us what type of relationship we really need and all the things that give us butterflies.

    WHAT FAMOUS FACES HAVE THE CANCER STAR SIGN?

    Lana Del Ray

    Emotional singer Lana bares her soul in her music.

    This artist named two songs Sad Girl and Pretty When You Cry, and put them back to back on an album called Ultraviolence. Can you be any more Cancer?

    Meryl Streep

    Even though she’s like the queen of Hollywood actresses, you won’t find Cancer Meryl lapping up the limelight like a Leo.

    She prefers to let her art do the talking and with more than 70 films behind her, we reckon she’s doing a pretty good job.

    Chris Pratt

    Jurassic Park actor Chris Pratt waiting tables at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurant in Hawaii before he got his first acting role.

    As is typical of Cancer he is a real family man and adores his two children, Jack and Lyla.

    HOW MANY KIDS CANCER, LEO, VIRGOS WILL HAVE, ACCORDING TO STAR SIGNS

    Cancer

    This is the sign astrologers most associate with family, motherhood and homemaking so it’s fitting they’d be inclined to have a huge brood..

    The stars predict that a Cancer mum will have two children, but they will probably be born several years apart.

    Leo

    Leos love showing off their star power, so they’re more likely to want several kids who lap up the limelight, too. 

    The stars have two to four kids planned for Leos, who will take real pride in raising their pack of cubs.

    Virgo

    Having too many kids could be stressful for detail-driven Virgo, so having one mini-me may be perfect.

    With their lives planned to precision expect Virgo’s child to be well-behaved and polite, well, most of the time anyway. Find out about your sign here.

    HOW DOES ASTROLOGY WORK?

    Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual’s life depending on when they were born – from their mood to their personality to what happens in the future.

    It can be pretty complex stuff for the average person and is often referred to as “the language of the sky” – a language only astrologers understand.

    People have been studying astrology for thousands of years, and to become a horoscope reader, you need to get to grips with the basics, by reading books, reading horoscope charts and practising interpretations.

    The horoscopes is an astronomical map that shows the placement of the sun, the moon, and the planets within 12 sections of the sky—the signs of the zodiac.

    THE MOST EMPATHETIC STAR SIGNS REVEALED

    It comes as no surprise that dreamy Pisces is at the top of the list. One of their strong suits is compassion, and they easily become absorbed in the feelings of others.

    They are a caring type and are concerned about the well-being of their friends and loved ones.

    Cancer is known for being a sensitive sign, and not just to their own feelings — they can easily pick up and absorb the emotions of others.

    Their strong intuition can sometimes be overwhelming because it’s almost impossible to turn off.

    Scorpio is a sign that feels things very intensely. They tend to be passionate and they strongly desire to be close to others.

    Because emotions are so important to them, they easily pick up on other people’s energies.

    Detail-oriented Virgo has a hard time ignoring emotional changes in others, no matter how small. They are less emotional than the sensitive water signs, but no less observant and they can be incredibly empathetic.

    Connection is very important to Geminis, and they will often go out of their way to find out how you are feeling. This sign tends to be open-minded and they will pick up on your feelings without judging you for them.

  • Maria Hummer

    WHAT’S A MOON SIGN?

    Our star sign (also called our sun sign) can definitely tell us a lot about our personalities, but it isn’t the whole story.

    If you really want to get deep, it’s important to know which sign of the zodiac the moon was in at the time of your birth because, according to astrology, this sign points to the inner you.

    What this means is that outwardly you could have the bravery and strength of a Leo while inside you’re a sensitive Cancer.

    If you want to know more about your moon sign, you can check your birth chart or consult a moon sign calculator.

    THE BLACK MOON CAN BOOST YOUR SEX LIFE

    Black Moon Lilith is the point in the sky that marks the furthest point of the moon’s orbit around the earth.

    Astrologers call Lilith the “dark moon.” Think unresting bitch face— the part of you that flips your lid when your chip your fresh manicure.

    Knowing your Lilith’s zodiac sign can reveal the darker side of your sexuality and where you might start crushing just a little too hard on someone.

    In an astrology chart, Lilith, also referred to as the Black Moon, represents a person’s primitive reactions and attitude – warts and all.Read more about it here.

    WHICH FAMOUS FACES HAVE THE VIRGO STAR SIGN?

    Tom Hardy

    Actor Tom Hardy definitely radiates the put-together suaveness of a detail-oriented Virgo.

    Evan Rachel Wood

    With her Sun, Venus and Mars all in the sign of Virgo, it's no wonder this famous actor exudes down-to-earth charm.

    Amy Poehler

    Multi-talented Amy Poehler is without a doubt diligent and hard-working, true to her Virgo sign.

    Stephen King

    We think it's probably a combination of his Virgo discipline and the confidence of his Sagittarius Moon that has made Stephen King one of the most successful and best-known authors in the world.

  • Maria Hummer

    IS ASTROLOGY SELF-CARE?

    Many of us already read our horoscope for predictions and general advice — but can astrology also be used as a self-care tool?

    According to an article in Vogue, astrology is beginning to occupy a self-care space with countless people turning to the stars for wellness and self-development tips.

    There also seems to be a growing connection between astrology and psychology as people are using their star sign to understand themselves more deeply.

    Like other self-care practices (such as meditation and yoga), astrology can help us to make peace with who we are as well as plan for the future.

  • Maria Hummer

    WHAT IS A FIXED SIGN IN ASTROLOGY?

    In astrology, your star sign is either fixed, cardinal or mutable. The fixed signs are Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio and Leo. But what exactly does this mean?

    Fixed signs occur in the middle of a season. Taurus lands in the middle of spring, Leo marks the middle of summer, Scorpio is in the centre of autumn, and Aquarius is the sign that rules the middle of winter.

    People whose star sign is fixed tend to be stable, determined, reliable, and sometimes stubborn.

    These signs may not be the best at dealing with change (cardinal and mutable signs are a bit more flexible), but they are definitely loyal friends and allies.

  • Maria Hummer

    IS THERE SCIENCE BEHIND ASTROLOGY?

    Scientists claim astrology is not yet proven and that the position of stars and planets is more accurately defined as astronomy.

    Astronomy uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain the origin and evolution of objects in the universe (including the moon, sun and planets).

    Some, however, argue astrology is different and is a natural science too, as it deals with observations and prediction of events in the sky which influences human affairs and the natural world.

    That being said, there’s said to be no conclusive evidence that astrology is backed by science, or that astrology is an accurate predictor of personality traits, future destinies or love lives, as written in Smithsonian Magazine.

    WHICH FAMOUS FACES HAVE THE CAPRICORN STAR SIGN?

    Eddie Redmayne

    Eddie Redmayne is definitely a down-to-earth and diligent Capricorn.

    He also happens to share a star sign with science genius Stephen Hawking, who he portrayed in The Theory of Everything.

    Diane von Fürstenberg

    This legendary fashion designer definitely wouldn't be where she is today without the signature self-starter energy of her zodiac sign.

    Orlando Bloom

    Famous actor Orlando Bloom is immensely compatible with his current partner Katy Perry.

    This Capricorn/Scorpio pair both have their Moon in the sign of Scorpio, which means they can connect strongly on an emotional level.

    WHAT ARE THE FOUR CARDINAL SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC?

    In astrology, star signs are considered either fixed, mutable or cardinal. The four cardinal signs are Capricorn, Libra, Cancer and Aries — but what does this mean?

    The cardinal signs fall at the beginning of a new season: Capricorn opens winter, Aries kicks off spring, Cancer welcomes in summer, and Libra heralds the beginning of autumn.

    It’s not just about placement in the year, either, because being a cardinal sign can have an effect on the personality.

    Cardinal signs love to be the first at things. They can make good leaders and innovators because they aren’t waiting for someone else to make the first move.

    They tend to be great at coming up with new ideas and they’re often the first person to take action.

    WHICH FAMOUS FACES HAVE THE VIRGO STAR SIGN?

    Idris Elba

    Versatile actor Idris Elba was dubbed by Esquire 'the hardest working man in showbiz.' That kind of title could only ever go to a Virgo.

    Chris Pine

    With his Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces, Chris Pine exudes down-to-earth charm as well as heightened emotional sensitivity.

    Cameron Diaz

    Highly-driven Diaz has moved on from a successful acting career to other pursuits, including publishing health books and launching an organic wine company.

    THE STAR SIGNS DESTINED FOR FORTUNE

    Think your star sign doesn’t affect how wealthy you are? 

    It turns out you may be wrong. Although there are billionaires all over the zodiac, nearly one in FIVE are Libras.

    The second most prosperous sign is Aries, which has nine per cent of people in the top 100, such as internet leader Larry Page. 

    The next best signs are Gemini, Cancer and Capricorn, who are all tied on eight per cent of the top 100. 

    But it’s bad news for entrepreneurial Sagittariuses, as only one person in the top 100 has this sign – Chinese businessman Lei Jun.
