Horoscopes for July 28, 2012

By
From page B7 | July 28, 2012 |

The sun and Mercury aligned in Leo are a drumroll followed by a spotlight on an empty stage curtain. Enter the messenger, costumed in sparkles and plumes, greasepaint artfully applied for theatrical effect. When messages are presented in this fashion, it’s hard not to react with requisite laughter and applause.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t need a lot of extra bells and whistles to get people to pay attention to you. People will pay attention simply because they are impressed with who you are and how you live your life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re ready for a new view and may wander to find it. Getting off track can be a good thing, especially when said “track” requires that you burn a lot of fuel racing dangerously fast in circles, racecar style.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your personal touch is needed, though the others don’t know they need it until they get a taste. You could say that you create the need by being so awesome at what you do.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You could fall victim to a case of the “what ifs.” The tendency to wonder about different outcomes doesn’t have to have a negative focus. Include some positive hypotheticals, such as “What if I succeed wildly?”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be happy for your experiences. Your maturity has brought you to a place where you’re able to not only live the length of this day, but also the depth of it as well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Knife makers who sharpen blades on whirling grindstones must be careful not to get their noses too close to the work. To avoid a nasty scrape, put more distance between you and the job at hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll come across those with more privileges and benefits. Hopefully, they’ll play fair. You like the game of life better when you’re reasonably sure that no one is playing with marked cards or stacking the deck.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes you have to stop “doing you” in order to become who you really are. It’s the ideal day to let go of some of your staple patterns and observe how you feel outside of your behaviors.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You value cheerfulness, but you don’t always have to be cheerful, especially when it’s just you. A wide range of emotions will color this day, and you’ll find something of value in each tone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Persevere with the things you believe in. There will always be reasons to give up. Those reasons may look like immobile objects, when they’re really shadows you can pass right through.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As the lawn mowers and leaf blowers of the world know, noise that’s acceptable at 9 a.m. might be cause for a fight at 6 a.m. Your excellent timing will keep the peace today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The day comes with a complimentary quiz. Unfortunately, the answers can’t be found in small writing or upside down on the bottom of the page. Instead, you just have to guess if you were right.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (JULY 28). In the next six weeks you will relinquish a tired grudge, and as you forgive, you are reborn. In August you repeat an action with intention and grow your personal power. Consistency may very well make you rich. You’ll discover new talents in yourself and others in October. December is the most romantic. Scorpio and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 2, 35, 29 and 50.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “The Sagittarius said he didn’t want me to come over because he needed to work. Then he went to the movies with a friend. When I called him at home, he said that the friend wasn’t there. I showed up at his place, and the friend was there. He left her inside, and in the parking lot he told me I shouldn’t worry so much. I don’t know what to believe about him. I keep calling. He’s making me feel crazy. I know in my heart we are connected. When will he see it, too? Signed Aries.”

Passionate fire sign, I urge you to cool off. The Sagittarius, as powerfully attractive as he may be, is not making you crazy. Rather, you are choosing to react in a crazy way to the information he is giving you, which is essentially: “Leave me alone.” There is a chance he finds your fervor flattering. But, at the end of the day, what you are really doing is emotional bullying. You may even be frightening him. You are ignoring his unspoken request and putting your needs before his. Is that how you treat someone you respect/like/love? A self-imposed restraining order would do you a world of good now.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Immortally glamorous Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis remains a subject of adoring fascination. Sun and Mercury in Leo suggest she was destined for the spotlight, and though ever poised in its glare, Mars and Neptune in Virgo intimate it wasn’t a comfortable place for her to be. Virgo energy is always striving for perfection — Jackie O. made it seem attainable.
