Horoscopes for July 18, 2014

By
From page A9 | July 18, 2014 |

Social media presents problems, but they are the same problems that have been present since the beginning of time. In the words of Cato the Elder, born in 234 BC, “We cannot control the evil tongues of others; but a good life enables us to disregard them.” Mercury and Neptune encourage the high road for all communication.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re like an exotic orchid that needs a specific kind of attention. So who knows the right way to nurture you? You could find just the expertise you need in a Pisces.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The things you’ll do in the morning will stave off an overly serious mood. You will be focused, but at the same time, your heart is light. With this combination, you’ll be unstoppable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll predict the future accurately. This time it won’t be with your psychic mind, but rather you’ll employ your scientific sense. Your guess is based on how you’ve seen similar situations play out in the past.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Self-esteem isn’t a fixed thing, and you will feel yours waver throughout the day. The important thing is that whether you feel strong or scared, go ahead with your plans.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll wheel and deal your way into a prime position. By the end of the day, you’ll have reason to celebrate. Include air signs Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). No one else will stop you, but you might be wise to stop yourself. By taking breaks and pacing yourself, you’ll prevent the burnout that could keep you from your prize at the end.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Once you get over the first hurdle of the morning, you’ll be warmed up enough to handle something even more challenging in the afternoon. These are blessings, for they will make you excellent!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most creative, passionate people have a tendency to be unreasonable once in a while. If you find yourself obsessing about a certain person again, relax and go easy on yourself. You’ll get over this. It just takes time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re looking forward to a change. In fact, you can’t wait! Others who will be affected are not as excited. You can help with that with your gentle way of staying emotionally attuned.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll create enthusiasm and a sense of unity among your friends and colleagues. Part of what makes you so powerful is that you work and play well with others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A police officer who walks the same beat every day will notice the smallest change in the neighborhood and be on alert. That’s what you’re like today. You’ll detect a small but significant change.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Try using visual cues – or, as the case may be, removing the visual cues that are causing you to go down an unwanted mental path. Controlling your environment will train your mind.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll seek and find the excitement you need in a project that lasts the next six weeks. August brings a second chance at something that has been important in your life, and you’ll get it right this time. Your appearance and health will improve with the efforts you make in September. Lock down a commitment in November. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 23, 38 and 19.

WEEKEND LOVE REPORT: ARIES: The typical way is to fight “it,” but accepting “it” will be so much more graceful. (You supply the “it.”) TAURUS: Postpone the negative, and maybe it won’t come up at all. GEMINI: Maybe you don’t want to be needed, but just because someone needs you doesn’t make that person “needy.” CANCER: One thing that makes you great is that you’re willing to share the credit but not the blame. LEO: Revealing too much is a danger. Stay mysterious. VIRGO: You’re more attractive when you don’t respond to every little outreach. LIBRA: Pacing is important. Don’t try to do too much at once. SCORPIO: Be aware of precisely what you did to contribute to the success of a project so you can create a winning strategy later. SAGITTARIUS: Before you embark, make sure everyone is on board for the same journey. CAPRICORN: Be straightforward – your partner or potential partner will respond well to this approach. AQUARIUS: Decide quickly – it’s more exciting that way. PISCES: You’ll have to choose between whom you believe in and what you believe in.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Taurus moon reflects the best parts of the Cancer sun, these two take a shine to each other in what promises to be a quintessential summer weekend. Play, fun, excitement, adventure – it’s all part of the plan with Venus and Mars harmonizing so effectively. Perhaps laughter will be more prevalent than kisses, as the connection entails so much more than a physical bond.
