Horoscopes for July 4, 2014

By
From page B13 | July 04, 2014 |

The sun in Cancer, the sign of patriotism, pulls from across the sky at Pluto in Capricorn. The alignment calls attention to mighty and dormant forces. Pluto represents the tides of the world, and so this opposition suggests that America’s birthday will gain more than the usual amount of global attention and significance.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You like being around smart people, but you value objectivity and originality more than book smarts. Therefore, you gravitate to the creatively endowed and fit in wonderfully.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People like to talk to you because you’re an empathetic listener, although you don’t necessarily want to hear all that they come out with today. At least they feel safe around you, and you can take that as a compliment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s as though two paths converge and you’re both in each other’s way. Neither person is right. Neither person is wrong. But for this blockage to be released, someone has to move.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Like a hot-air balloon, you will rise to new heights once you get rid of a few sandbags filled with unreasonable expectations, old baggage and resentments.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will be particularly difficult to see people for who they are because you can’t help but be blinded by the possibilities of what they might be able to do for you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To be an excellent teacher you must communicate clearly, and not only the information and skills you want to impart, but also the structure in which you want to impart it. Make your expectations known. Accountability will be key.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re attempting to resist a natural attraction, but it doesn’t seem to be working. Out of sight, out of mind is the best way. In time, you’ll slip out of the thought habit that’s gripping you now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This is the long and winding stretch that fools you at every turn. You’ll have success if you keep your course. Reaffirm your goal. Say it out loud in the mirror, or write it a few times in a journal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People want to give you advice, but the best advice will be an inside message sent from your heart to your head. You already know what to do. The next step is summoning the courage.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know how a certain someone’s name keeps coming up in conversation? It’s because this person is on your mind all of the time. Your conversation can’t help but follow your mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Making a strong positive impression when you first meet a person is so important now. All future interactions will be colored by someone’s initial response to you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The one who requires zero validation from you is the one you most approve of. You can apply this principle in reverse. You’ll earn someone’s affection by not caring whether or not you get it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You don’t seek fame, but because you love what you are doing, you will become well known for it. You’ll sell something for top dollar in August. You will be entrusted with a large responsibility in September, and you’ll be in a position to choose the right associations and arrangements to handle the situation. Gemini and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 48 and 25.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Mild jealousy is flattering. Overt jealousy is difficult to deal with and should be nipped in the bud. TAURUS: Gossiping is how insecure people try to weed out the competition. You’ll see it for what it is and want no part of it. GEMINI: Striking up the right conversational topic will turn a lukewarm connection into a hot one. CANCER: You’ll be promised much, and if the person does even one thing he or she promises, you stand to gain greatly. LEO: Save the items that might later help you recall happy days and the people you love. VIRGO: Don’t let loved one’s limit you. Call out their behavior to prevent a pattern of subtle restriction. LIBRA: Changing your appearance will alter the dynamic of a relationship. SCORPIO: You want to learn more about a certain someone, but not so much that things become predictable. SAGITTARIUS: What’s done in love is a creative act. CAPRICORN: Someone is falling in love with your inner approach to life. AQUARIUS: You might disagree with a loved one on the little things, but the big things are what matter for now. PISCES: Collaborations will work brilliantly, so jump in and play.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Libra moon of partnership reflects the nurturing Cancer sun, sparking an interest between these two signs. Libra is so diplomatic and easy to get along with that Cancer hardly needs to engage in the usual protective antics that make the crab feel safe. Cancer’s aesthetic sensibility is right in line with Libra’s, which makes it easy to decide on a mutually delightful plan of action.
