Horoscopes for July 29, 2013

By
From page A7 | July 29, 2013 |

This is a rare alignment: a grand sextile, which is a six-pointed star formed in the heavens with a luminary at each point. The lineup today is Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune and the moon. Half of the luminaries are in earth signs and half are in water signs, lending a balance of healing and nurturing. Growth happens when you relax and let nature lead.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have stupendous ideas now. For any given problem you put your mind to, you can think of multiple solutions that are worth a try. Avoid, however, trying to solve another person’s problem if they haven’t asked you to.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The sociologist Erving Goffman suggested, “The gestures which we sometimes call empty are perhaps in fact the fullest things of all.” You’ll give and receive such gestures today in the form of casual compliments.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes people just need to vent. You’ll be there for them when they do. But when it’s time to concentrate on you, close up shop. Protect your time and the sanctity of your good mood.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). After a long day of sitting in a chair, it makes no sense to decompress by sitting in another chair. You are best when in movement. The hardest part is starting from an immobile state, but push through.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Living up to your own expectations seems like it would be easy. But actually, in the world of expectations, yours are the most demanding you could choose. Go easy on yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know but one thing about another person. But all you have to do is begin an interaction, and before you know it, you will know two to five things, which is enough to break past the “acquaintance” stage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll start a new project with good intentions and then proceed to fumble and falter a bit, which is completely normal and to be expected. Take it as your cue to stand up and try again. Don’t give up too soon!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Better is better. If it’s only a little bit better, feel good and take the win. A little bit better plus the magic ingredient of every day equals something you can be proud of in the end.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If illness can be psychosomatic, wellness can be, too. That is precisely why the entertainment you call a “guilty pleasure” is actually a necessity for your health and happiness.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Minimizing and oversimplifying a challenge won’t help you succeed. If you’re struggling, assume there’s a good reason. Avoid being needlessly frustrated. Take a break and come back to the issue later.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Excitement doesn’t always lead to closeness between people. Some relationships are like the birth of the universe. They start with a Big Bang and then spread apart and drift in different directions toward outer space.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You think you’re merely recounting recent happenings, but you also may be inspiring spontaneous wonder and enthralling someone who is intrigued by your lifestyle.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Feed your plans to the paper shredder – a whimsical, unforeseen opportunity brings August adventure. Follow your winning instincts to a new job in September. A wish for your family is granted in October. November brings a fast-paced learning environment. You’ll go into the new year with a life-enhancing set of skills. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 22, 7 and 18.

HOW TO PLEASE A SCORPIO: You may sense that the Scorpio in your life could use a little extra happiness these days. Saturn in Scorpio has this sign slightly on edge. Since the task master settled into Scorpio’s part of the sky in October of 2012, Scorpios have learned to expect that at any moment life will hand Scorpio a kind of cosmic pop quiz. Scorpio isn’t exactly fond of these kinds of surprises. So how can you counteract the slings and arrows of life and put a smile on your Scorpio’s face?

Have you thought about flirting? Better yet, don’t think about it – that can ruin the effect. Instead, keep the intention of playfulness in your mind and react to the moment. Casual familiarity, spontaneous teasing and a touch of the inappropriate put Scorpio in a mood most excellent. Scorpio feels accepted and valued when being paid this kind of attention.

Don’t worry about being good friends with Scorpio and having no desire to take things in a different direction. Flirting isn’t always about progressing a relationship into boyfriend/girlfriend territory. It’s more often about connecting with others and creating a mutually enjoyable moment together.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “How I Met Your Mother” star Josh Radnor is also an acclaimed movie writer and director. This Leo entertainer was born when the moon and Neptune were both in fiery, passionate Sagittarius, lending the desire to see other worlds. Those placements are offset by Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Cancer, the sign that loves to stay home. Through writing, Radnor can fulfill both desires at once.
