Horoscopes for July 1, 2014

By
From page B5 | June 30, 2014 |

Mercury goes direct, but it will take days to get into the groove of improved timing. Trying to get in sync with others may be a steeper challenge than anticipated. Consider that all of Earth’s inhabitants do not even use the same calendar. There will be definite benefits to following your animal instincts instead of the clock.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stop your planning – the season to celebrate is this one! This is the one that will bring you the most joy, and not because you planned for it, but because you are bringing your awareness to it now, and now, and now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hunger leads to poor choices and irritability. It diminishes your wells of willpower and compassion and makes it difficult for you to be your best self. Plan ahead to avoid hunger.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you would be hard-pressed to say why certain relationships are perfect for your life right now, you generally believe that there is a reason for everything and that you have never met anyone by accident.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Many equate worry with love. However, it doesn’t make you feel any more loved to know that someone worries about you. Realizing this, you may stop worrying about someone else.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Speak up even if you suspect you will have no influence at this time. Making the effort to be heard is important for your self-esteem. Whether or not they listen is pretty much beside the point.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It makes no sense to apologize for another person’s behavior; however, you might be tempted to do so anyway. Consider that you might be enabling someone’s bad behavior with overly diplomatic tactics.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to give fast answers, and it’s in fact unlucky to do so. Resist anyone who tries to pressure you to act quickly. Assert your right to think things over.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Exciting developments in your personal life are the direct result of all the intense focus you’ve been giving to your wishes. Your mind and heart are already filled with the contentment of destiny’s child.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If there’s an out-of-the-ordinary channel that you could use to communicate with your love, it’s strongly recommended now. A Post-it note or a message in a bottle, a wink or a whispered secret – it will build the bond.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have put your time and effort into a thankless task, but you can trust that excitement, adventure, pleasure, relaxation – all that you feel you’ve been denied – will soon be forthcoming.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your love is strong as sunshine, and it stretches and permeates the environments you touch now. You will glide between worlds, giving your energy to the far corners.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will have the distinct feeling that you are witnessing your own action – indeed, your own thoughts. Who is this you who is watching you? Noticing that you are thinking has a way of making you think less.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You will find deep contentment this year, but first comes the exhilaration of pushing yourself through a challenge. August brings an exciting accomplishment. September features tender moments and sweet affections. November and December are the most lucrative. Save up for a March investment. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 22, 15, 38 and 9.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Leo who is married to a Pisces man whom I love but am not in love with. We have two children, ages 6 and 10. I find myself attracted to others, but never act on those feelings. I fantasize about being divorced even though there is basically nothing terribly wrong with my husband. I just can’t help but think I could be happy, truly happy, with someone else. What do you think I should do?”

Mars in Libra right now is highlighting all the work that goes into partnerships to make them function properly. In your case, the work is forbearance and maturity. Your fire-sign nature craves excitement, but no long marriage is going to be exciting all of the time. Or even half of the time. Or even weekly.

There’s something bigger at stake here, and if you ruin it by giving in to basically immature and selfish impulses, it will be a mistake that you will find difficult to forgive yourself for.

The answer may be to find other ways to bring pleasure and excitement into your life: new work, travel, a hobby, a challenge. You are due for some adventures, so make them happen. As for “truly happy,” that usually comes from making decisions you can truly stand behind.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Many will gather to mourn Diana, Princess of Wales, on her birthday today. Born under the sign of mothers, the princess exemplified the maternal energy and nurturing nature of her sign. With her natal Mercury, the communication planet, also in this sign, Princess Diana was a mother figure to multitudes beyond her own family. She often followed the leanings of her philanthropic Aquarius moon.
