Horoscopes for July 15, 2014

By
From page B5 | July 14, 2014 |

Mercury and Neptune glide toward a water-sign formation that acts as a portal to the spiritual realms – a triangle to heaven through which our imaginations and hearts will leap to bring our wishes, dreams, ideas and creative potential into existence. The Pisces moon is on board with the plan.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s something about imagining what that far-off person is doing in his or her faraway land. It’s exciting and wondrous – entertainment in and of itself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Reconfigure. Take things apart and juxtapose them differently. There might not be a way to work this out, but if you experiment a bit, you can always say that it’s not for a lack of trying.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Did you ever stop to wonder whether the rules you are following are arbitrary? Indeed, some of them don’t make much sense, and that will be glaringly apparent in today’s action.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a checklist of achievements in the back of your mind. You know life is not all about that list, and yet you can’t help but notice that the people you want to be like have a similar one.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can make things happen, and you’ll let the others know that you’re in charge. It’s not that you want to be the leader. It’s just that you notice that someone has to lead, and you figure it might as well be you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is said that books allow you to live out different lives within your own. What you read today will shift your thinking. The slight adjustment will enhance your future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Small victories lead to big victories. If you can conquer a minor issue, you will grow in confidence and tackle the major issues, too. What’s the next thing you’ll do?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A talk with the boss about your future is advised, or the current situation could go on for months. Tonight you’ll figure out what someone needs and provide it. They’ll call it magic.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have enough energy, motivation and stamina for two people, which is a good thing because your partner might be dragging. Don’t go in like gangbusters; match his or her pace first, and then slowly pick it up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A shining idea you have this afternoon is worth looking into. Should it be a reality show? At the very least, it’s the source of a few laughs – so share it with friends.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A gentle, patient approach will draw a reticent person to the palm of your hand. The right companion brings maximum satisfaction to your personal life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Consider all that you’ve done well lately. It’s not something you normally would think about, but your confidence will be boosted if you make a list. An opportunity is coming up. Build your confidence now to get ready for it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll finally get what you’ve waited for. August sees you doing things your own way and getting paid well for it. You’ll compete and win in September. Career twists and turns in October will favor you in the end. Someone special emerges in November. Take vacations together – one could be a honeymoon! Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 3, 39 and 20.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: “I’m a 46-year-old Scorpio male who dated a 47-year-old Capricorn female for more than two years until we recently broke up. Part of the reason for the breakup was my mother, whom I have lived with since my dad passed away. Mom didn’t like the girl, although there was no great reason to dislike her. On the other hand, my girlfriend would slander my mom and say I do too much for her, which is not the case. I was slow in making a commitment, but I did finally tell my mom I was moving out, and she got upset. My girlfriend showed no compassion, which I thought was a bad sign, so I didn’t move out. Then my girlfriend went on a trip to Vegas with another man.

”Do you think I was doomed from the beginning with her because she couldn’t stand the competition my mother presented, or do you think she’s actually jealous of me because I am somewhat more handsome than others and people warm up to my personality faster than they do to hers?”

Even though there are good reasons that you are living with your mom, a Capricorn woman would be the last to understand them. Capricorn women tend to go for the alpha male, and in her eyes, a man living in the same home as his mother doesn’t fit that description.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Cancer comedian Gabriel Iglesias has made a career of talking about his weight issues, and last year’s efforts to get healthier gave him a slimmer body and fresh material, too. Look for the moonchild’s new movie, “The Fluffy Movie: Unity Through Laughter.” Iglesias says, “I found that laughter is a form of acceptance, and I really enjoy that, and I just – I crave it.”
