Horoscopes for July 30, 2014

By
From page B5 | July 30, 2014 |

Mercury has had an extended stay in the hospitable bed-and-breakfast of Cancer, but that will come to an end tomorrow. As the communication planet wraps up in this part of the sky, domestic details will pop into focus. Handle the day-to-day issues as they arise. It will be easier now, and if you wait, there is much that will fall through the cracks.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are times when you’re such a naturally good listener that you don’t have to work at it, but more often it takes a conscious effort to listen well. The extra effort will pay off in interesting ways.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a string of meaning running through this day, a thread that seems to call out a particular theme. You’ll have fun deciphering this cosmic code.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know that your experience of a person is not the whole picture, and you enjoy learning the backstory that helped form a person’s character. A casual but key question will unlock the history.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are many mysteries to solve – way too many to solve in a day. Gather your questions in one place so you can ponder them deliberately. One stroke of genius may answer many questions at once.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have an excellent sense of what will be important to another person – it’s as though you precisely measure the emotional weight of things. You’ll use this skill to give what’s needed and get back what you need in return.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to be memorable to a certain someone, and therefore you will put thought into making your moments together stand out as unlike any other. Act on those highly original ideas.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You realize when the old energy is dying and it’s time for something new. Keep yourself and others from falling into a funk. Take control and lead your partner or group to revitalization.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take the breaks you deserve. If you don’t, you risk burning out before you reach your goal. There is no fast without slow. Slow it down if only to prove that you can.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You momentarily may have lost sight of what you were projecting to the world, but what you get back today will clue you in again. You’ll quickly get attuned to your own attitude and the attitudes of those around you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). That vendetta you’ve been carrying around with you? You don’t think of it all the time, but today it pushes its way to the top of your secret agenda and fuels your success, which is, of course, the best revenge.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You build on what your partner says, and it goes back and forth, gaining intensity until the final idea is reached. This process can be extremely constructive as long as you both focus on the positive.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You love to be productive, and this day won’t disappoint, as the action buzzes along, overlapping in such a way that you may not be able to account for all that’s happened until way after the fact.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. New friends will invigorate, charm and amuse you. You’ll commit to a difficult job, and what you’ll have accomplished by the end of August will make you truly proud. Your talent will get the spotlight in September. November and May are the most romantic times. Your family will expand in June. Aquarius and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 14, 48 and 42.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My friend started calling me the One-Upper. When she first did it, I laughed, but inside I was really offended. Now I’ve let her get away with this name, and it’s starting to stick. I think it’s cruel. I’ve been told before that my personality is a little strong. But should I really have to tone down the things I want to talk about just because they might make other people feel insecure? I’m thinking about dropping my friend. Maybe she’s just too jealous of me to be a true friend. What should I do? I’m a Gemini, and she’s a Libra.”

As two air signs, there are many points of connection between you and your friend. Your conversations are lively and intelligent, offering real insight and fun. It would be a shame to throw this away because of one incident. While you shouldn’t feel you have to downplay your fabulous life, it is important that you give your Libra the moment when it’s her turn to shine. Born as an astrological twin, you are naturally competitive, while it’s in Libra’s nature not to compete, but to balance and support. Ask your friend to drop the nickname, and in the future, try to share the conversational glory more equitably.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Leo comedy queen Lisa Kudrow recently filmed a television pilot created by Nancy and Steve Carell with costars Quincy Jones and Rashida Jones. The former “Friend” was one of several Leos in the cast of “Friends,” and that solar-powered cast continues to shine in syndication. Kudrow was born when the sun and Mercury were in Leo and the moon was in worldly Sagittarius.
