Horoscopes for July 17, 2014

By
From page A9 | July 17, 2014 |

The moon’s shift from sympathetic Pisces into action-oriented Aries suggests that however sensitive we may be to the situations of others, a caring heart will do absolutely no good unless a positive action is used in tandem. Find concrete ways to bring about the change you want to see in the world.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your timing is impeccable. You pick up on the pulse of an interaction without missing a beat. It’s a talent. Comics rely on this, as do rap artists, financiers and romantics.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel restless again, and your mind will be occupied with dreams and plans that your loved ones might find too hard to reach. In your head, you’re creating the next step.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re emotionally transparent these days. Your body language is like a smoke signal that everyone around can read. This works in your favor when you’re feeling happy and content.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You could run into mental Krazy Glue this afternoon. Get moving – that will change the channel of your mind. Getting mad works, too. Sure, anger can be bad for you, but there are times when it also can be good for you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you feel like someone is trying to persuade or control you, you’ll resist. It’s when you don’t feel the influence that you should watch out. Skillfully manipulative people get what they want without making the others feel manipulated.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today presents potentially frustrating gray areas. Yes, it would be easier if life would fall into your categories, but sometimes it just doesn’t, and you’ll have the grace to accept that now, too.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is no need to ask whether they know what you mean. The people who do will show you right away, and the ones who don’t probably never will – and there’s no need to impress them anyway.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The one who will help you solve your problem is close by, but you won’t be able to tell who it is until you open up and start talking about what you need and want.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll uncover beliefs you didn’t know you held. All it takes is a little bit of rooting around to find the belief that drives you to act. Ask, “What might I believe that would cause me to do this?”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Willpower and determination will take you pretty far today, but it’s not enough to get you to the prize at the end. Let others help. You will achieve more as part of a team.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Those who have a tendency to idealize others will likely devalue those same individuals once they have not lived up to the idea. Guide people to develop reasonable expectations of you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Talking too much about your plans may make carrying them out a little less fun. Keep things on a need-to-know basis, and be sure to follow through with whatever you discuss.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Strong feelings of deja vu will accompany a very fortuitous meeting this month. Get an August financial arrangement right, and it will continue paying you for years to come. September ends a quest. November ends one part of an educational process, and you’ll have the certificate to prove it. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 11, 30, 27 and 15.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My sister and I are not close. How can I reach a Gemini who is like the old woman who lived in a shoe (she has so many children, she doesn’t know what to do)? She’s so busy with her own life that she can hardly relate to my childless existence.” – Sagittarius Sibling

What are you willing to do in order to be close to your sister again? Are you willing not to judge her for her choices, which are so different from your own? Are you willing to be of service to her? Are you willing to release her from the burden of living up to your expectations? The way to closeness probably involves you coming to your sister on her terms. It includes babysitting, entertaining children while you’re visiting, helping her out with errands or money or helping her by making all of the effort in the relationship. Gemini people are experts at staying in the moment, but in your sister’s case, it will be the moment she can relate to instead of the one you can.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Television mogul Mark Burnett was born when the sun and Mercury were in intuitive Cancer, suggesting keen instincts that go beyond what can be known about the facts, figures and test markets. The producer of such shows as “Survivor,” ”The Apprentice” and “Shark Tank” has a chart that also prominently features Leo, the sign of entertainment, with his natal Venus and Uranus placed there.
