Horoscopes for July 22, 2014

From page B5 | July 21, 2014 |

Popular author and blogger Jenny Lawson recently revealed, “I do my bucket list in reverse order (writing down the items I want to accomplish after I’ve already accomplished them) so that I’m always caught up.” The sun’s shift from Cancer to passionate Leo inspires exciting unplanned action worthy of a reverse-order bucket list.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your friends are important to you, but they’ll never know unless you tell them with words, deeds and gifts. Go there. Tell them sincerely, because this is when they will appreciate the gesture the most.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s as though you have lavender-scented oxygen and are inhaling life on a whole new level. Breathe it all in with the relish of a first breath. And look out for those Gemini, Libra and Aquarius people as you do!

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be invigorated by your team. Sure, some of them are loopy, and others are bossy, but the overall effect will be enthusiasm. Go with it! Acting with decisiveness will inspire the group’s confidence in you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some associate the moon with madness, others with romance. Your ruling luminary does command oceans to swell, and your beauty follows the trend. You’ll have all of the magnetic power of the moon today – and it’s heavenly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Should you stretch, learn and grow, or should you stay comfortable and contained? It sounds like a trick question, and yet there are times when it’s better – and it’s a very legitimate choice – to stay comfortable and contained.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today you may interact with someone as creative and diverse as you are, and it will be important that you stay focused on your own scene. One topic will lead to another, but bring it back to yours.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Plan, take action and complete the mission. This is easy when it’s a doable task: grocery shopping, cleaning the house, calling your relatives. It’s all important, but only as important as you make it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t take the blame for someone else’s mistake, but don’t call it out, either. There is a way to be classy and discreet. As you duck out of a bad situation, just know that justice always wins in the end.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your fanciful mood creates a reality that you and yours would love to inhabit. At the right time, you’ll bring this down to earth. Before that, it’s frothy fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The one who doesn’t get you seems like an idiot. But have you considered that you are not so easily discerned? Your beautiful complications are not for the faint of heart or the simple of mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you know and what you don’t know come together in a yin-yang kind of configuration, and you’ll likely be happy with it. Why mess with balance? Seek to know more another day.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The old saw goes: The audience can’t see and hear at the same time. So if you’re delivering important information, which you will be today, make sure you’re not distracting the listener with anything extraneous.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll gain rapport with people who are very different from you and win new customers and fans. This translates into money in the bank in August and a vastly expanding network throughout your solar year. October is for getting the training you need to make a career change. November shows you deeply in love. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 34, 48, 18 and 5.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Are fairies real? My grandmother swears she has seen them on three different occasions in her garden. She says they don’t look like the fairies in movies and in books, with dragonfly-type wings and the like. She says they are more like intelligent beings of geometric energy. She says they are more like organized lights than small humans with wings. What do you think? Is she telling stories? And if fairies do exist, why?”

According to Scottish and Irish lore, should you ever come across a fairy, there are two rules that are important to follow. First, don’t ask the fairy its name. Second, never call it a fairy. “Wee folk” is acceptable, and so is the Gaelic “sidhe.” I find these rules interesting, as they suggest that it’s bad luck to ask the sidhe to define itself, and it’s bad luck for you to try to define it by putting it into the fairy category.

Are the sidhe real? For me, there are too many possibilities and multiple realities to rule out such stories. Also, it’s just more fun to believe!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Selena Gomez made her debut in the entertainment world on “Barney and Friends” and went on to rule the Disney Channel as Alex in “Wizards of Waverly Place.” The multiplatinum-selling pop star and on-again-off-again girlfriend of Justin Bieber was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in the charismatic station of Leo – so the desire to entertain is written in her stars.
