Horoscopes for July 24, 2014

By
From page A9 | July 24, 2014 |

Are you thinking the best of things for no good reason? Is your heart open and your spirit light? Are you as playful as a child? The sun and Jupiter don’t often connect like this, but today they come together at last in a shower of optimism and enthusiasm unparalleled since the start of the year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). However casual a new connection starts out, it soon feels as though you’re being interviewed for a position. Pause and consider your answers. Also, what is it this person needs? What is all this curiosity pointing to?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You care about the thoughts and feelings of the people around you, and you’ll ask them to weigh in on decisions and give you their opinions about the world. Not everyone will be so inclusive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are some people you enjoy and admire, and yet being around them seems to take a lot of work. Why do you think this is? Break it down today, and you’ll learn something interesting about yourself.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A habit is an automatic response to your world. It doesn’t take thought. Which habits will serve you best? Determine that, and get started – you’ll only have to do it for three weeks to ingrain the habit.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Review your goals and proceed. Yes, you will have to revise your plans at some point, and this should in no way be interpreted as failure. Rather, it’s par for the course.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What can be recycled? There are items and ideas that would be even better in their second use. Dig deep. If you don’t come up with anything, consider keeping better records of your thoughts and resources in the future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you refrain from filling the dead space, you realize it’s not dead at all – rather, it’s more alive than the active space. On a related note, it has been suggested that the most beautiful note of all is silence. Use it well.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Usually, before anyone can move forward with the building process, some degree of destruction has to take place. So don’t fret about what needs to be torn down. Just do it quickly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Skills are developed abilities. You’re not born with them, and thinking that this is the case will only keep you from learning. When you witness a skillful individual, know that you could do the same if you put your mind to it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have something to get off your chest, and the more people you tell the better you’ll feel. Maybe you should post it on a social network for the entire world to see.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re prepared for sudden hunger, a flat tire or an impromptu guest. What you’re not prepared for is the life force of the person you’ll meet today. This one has the potential to sweep you off your feet.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your last-ditch effort will turn out to be the first effort that really works. The doors open, if only a crack, to let you see a heavenly slice of what you’ve been wanting for weeks now.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The large living you do in your mind will translate into large living in your real life. Your home is a source of warmth and comfort to many through the next six months. You’ll need peace and quiet after the social fun, though, and 2015 brings retreat and travel. Old rifts are healed in September. Money flows in October. Scorpio and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 3, 20, 1 and 42.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: ” I often wonder about bad ghosts. When I was a child, we had one in our 100-year-old Mississippi house. It never did anything nice. It would throw open drawers and cabinets in the middle of the night, and when we came into the kitchen in the morning, it looked like a wind had rattled everything open. I felt its energy twice, and it was cold and angry. Why don’t you ever hear about benevolent ghosts? Usually the poltergeist is a total jerk. Just curious, Holiday!”

Think about it in terms of basic human nature. It is easy for humans to be cordial and nice when they feel free and unencumbered. But let’s say you were in a theater, and the fire alarm was going off, and a whole bunch of people were rushing to the door. Typically, that’s when the baser human instincts take over, and it’s every man for himself or herself. Of course, there are exceptions, and they are remarkable precisely because they are so much more advanced than our basic instincts. The poltergeist, by definition, is trapped in between worlds. The confusion and disorientation of that place brings out the worst in the entity.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jennifer Lopez will star with the likes of Rihanna and the great Steve Martin in the upcoming animation fantasy film “Home,” about an alien invasion of Earth. This multitalented Leo was born when both the sun and Mercury were in Leo. Her Sagittarius moon suggests international appeal, as Sagittarius is the sign of the world. Lopez has ambitious Mars in Sagittarius, as well.
