Horoscopes for July 12, 2014

By
From page B5 | July 12, 2014 |

Native American tribes who named the full moons in order to better keep track of the calendar called the full moon in July the “Thunder Moon” in reference to July’s weather. This Capricorn moon certainly has the important feel of a thunderclap, as ambitions are ignited and electric ideas crackle through the atmosphere.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). What was exciting for a time is now in danger of going stale. It’s not you; it’s the scenery. Things will perk up when you take your crew somewhere new and add a few players, too.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Determination insists, while enthusiasm enjoys. You can’t drum up excitement for something you’re not, at this point, so sure about. But what you lack in enthusiasm you make up for in determination.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a hard job on the docket. If you volunteer for it and make a mistake, you may regret it once, but if you don’t volunteer for it, you likely will regret it many times.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Having the appearance of confidence and actually being confident will produce similar results. Put on your brave face and go forward. You need the experience more than you need to be comfortable.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The job before you may fall into the category of “dirty work,” and yet it will still be easier to do than to avoid. Bonus: Once it’s done, you’ll tell people, and they’ll be impressed.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you’re constantly afraid of falling out of favor, maybe the crowd you’re in isn’t a good match for you. It’s nothing to take personally or seriously. Treat it like the game it is.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even the powerful and rich cannot entirely control their worlds. Therefore, freedom isn’t really the ability to do whatever you want. Rather, it’s the ability to fully accept what’s going on in the moment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Choose your intimate friends with care, adding only those you truly respect and want to be like – this is not the place for a charity case. This close circle is the cornerstone of your well-being, not a realm to gamble with.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The person whose happiness is based on specific results is practically daring life to hurt him or her. Be adaptable. Base your happiness on the efforts at hand. Enjoy yourself.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This is your moment. If you manage to show humility while you’re getting all of this positive attention, you’ll earn the esteem of your group, but more importantly, you’ll feel good about yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re more willing to stretch now. You’ll take a stab at the task you might not be good at. You’ll taste the food you’re not sure you’ll like. By the end of the day, you’ll really feel that you’ve grown.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Each interaction has something to teach you. When you don’t like how it goes, envision what you will do differently the next time. As you increase your diplomatic skills, you’ll gain more friends and followers.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. By organizing your world the way you want it, you’ll turn the fortunes in your favor. Apply your social savvy to advance your interests in August. September improves your health and sharpens your game. October features a big event. Your practical ideas and network of connections will make impressive things happen. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 35, 14, 7 and 28.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “What keeps happening is that I meet someone, fall in like, fall in love, get excited about the future, and then things fizzle after three or four months. What’s the deal? Why don’t any of my relationships last? Also, can you suggest what sign a 23-year-old Sagittarius should go out with?”

The reason they don’t last is that you’re not looking for a serious relationship, but just a bit of fun. If you think you’re ready for something deeper, you should challenge yourself to hang in there and cross that four-month barrier without creating any drama that will break up the relationship.

An earth sign would be ideal for this experiment. That’s Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. These solid types are practical by nature and have a low tolerance for self-created drama.

When Venus enters Cancer on July 18, you’ll be more inclined to accept romance on a day-to-day basis and make it work on a practical level.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “That ’70s Show” star Topher Grace has a number of exciting projects coming out in the months to come, including the upcoming romantic comedy “A Many Splintered Thing.” This handsome Cancer has his moon and Pluto in Libra, suggesting that partnerships are extremely important to him. His Venus and Mars in Virgo suggests the work ethic and organizational skills that would also make an excellent producer.
