Horoscopes for July 27, 2014

By
From page C4 | July 27, 2014 |

Unlike some others in the animal kingdom, human babies come into the world so utterly helpless that they cannot live without a nurturer to feed, warm and protect them. To be human is to be dependent on other humans. The point is driven home today, as the opposition of Venus and Pluto highlights our vulnerability and calls for compassion.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Think of your relationships as a dance and try different moves. Just as new music makes you move differently, new environments will highlight different aspects of your relationship.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Choose your battles carefully, as most of them aren’t worth fighting. You won’t agree with all you hear, but that doesn’t mean you have to speak out against it. A disapproving look, in many cases, says all you need to say.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You appreciate discreet people, the type who respect your privacy and are only as interested in you as you want them to be. This takes great social intelligence, and you can’t expect it from everyone.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll spend time with the one who gets your style, taste and language. The hours will be satisfying, educational and peppered with shared laughter.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Look beyond what people are doing and into what they are feeling, because understanding the emotions of a situation will be more important than understanding the logistics of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be changed by what you take on, especially if you fall in love with it in the process. The deeper your involvement and love the more profound the change.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You strive to contribute to a healthy, functional environment even when faced with largely dysfunctional elements. You keep rearranging things to see whether you can come up with a configuration that works.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You usually regard yourself as a pronoun, but today you feel more like a verb. You are action personified. There’s a feeling of invincibility in your constant doing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The one who understands you doesn’t need an explanation from you, and your explanation will not make a difference to the one who doesn’t understand you. Therefore, declare yourself and don’t explain it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The way you dress will change the dynamics of a situation. As Mark Twain said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may suddenly feel self-conscious in a relationship or have the overall sense that it’s not working. You know the goal, and you know the obstacle, and it’s not enough. Raise the stakes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When every action has an obstacle, that’s drama. It’s good in the theater, but bad in life. Some things may be hard – perhaps the best and most important things – but not everything. Embrace what’s easy. Revel in it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You don’t expect the world to comply with your standards, but you do everything possible to create the world you want. A project will be carried through by your strength and will in August. With the expansion of your personal property comes increased responsibility. Love and adventure are linked in September. Pisces and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 33, 38 and 42.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Weeks ago, it was retrograde-mayhem, but the innermost retrograde planets have all decided to fly straight, setting life on a more logical course. But don’t be so quick to make sense of it. Distant Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are still retrograde, encouraging thought and review. Introverted types may get so deeply and creatively entwined with memories that an entirely new retro-reality may start to form. Memory doesn’t always serve a vigilant master. The line between what happened and what didn’t will go fuzzy as wishes have their way with history.

On a side note, these are dramatic times. Try not to get too sentimental, unless you’re having fun with it. After all, this week under the Leo sun is all about entertainment, which starts with you. If it’s interesting to you, it’s interesting. If it’s funny to you, it’s funny. If it’s sad to you, it’s sad. Believe in your own reactions. Chances are, someone else will share them.

The progression of the Leo sun keeps us focused on the action, how we’re performing it and the entertainment value, too. People want to shine during this time, to do a good job, earn the applause and have an influence. Feed your creative soul.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “SNL” alumnus Maya Rudolph has caused a commotion in movies such as “Bridesmaids” and “The Way Way Back.” This Leo funny lady was born when the sun, Mercury and Mars were all in the sign of show business. She’s a natural-born entertainer who is on the fast track this year. Look for this lovely Leo in the upcoming “The Nest,” a film about two sisters who decide to throw one last party before their parents sell the family home.
