Horoscopes for July 9, 2014

By From page B6 | July 09, 2014

A strong work ethic will come into play in the current cosmic alignment. The busier you are the luckier you’ll be as the sun and Saturn line up to form a good-fortune portal in the sky. The theme is karma, poetic justice and due rewards! Good things coming to hard workers will give the sense that all is right in the universe.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you can’t put your finger on it, but for some reason, you’re feeling better about the way your life is going. The trend will continue in the days to come. A spiritual reconciliation is in the works.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While trying to help a loved one out of a sticky situation, some of the adhesive will rub off on you. It all can be managed if you keep moving. Stay in one place, though, and the glue will dry!

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Memories are treasures you’ll take out and polish today. Just be aware that taking this trip through your treasure chest will alter the memories and make the past seem shinier than it really was.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The shortcuts you see are safe to take as long as you recognize the toll and are willing to pay it when you get to the tollbooth. If you think there is no price to pay, think again.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t talk to a dog the way you would a child, and you don’t talk to a child the way you would an adult. You have different personas for different situations, and you’ll change modes often today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A fellow earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) will shed some light on a problem you’ve been having – but of course any Google search can do that. The impressive part is that the earth sign will then take steps to help you solve it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are on your way to an accomplishment. It’s something small that matters pretty much only to you, but matters it does! Grand developments are merely a series of small accomplishments.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Go ahead and spill that unconventional opinion, and you’ll learn that the others aren’t as far off point as you might have thought. There’s validation in this, which is nice but not necessary.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Stress will block your ability to think things through in a clearheaded process. Thinking clearly means stressing less. Sit down and take things easy. Relax, even if you have to force yourself to do it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The reason the deaf can dance and even compose is that sound vibrations are experienced in all parts of your body, not just your ears. Music will bring you joy through and through.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You might disagree, but you don’t disrespect. That’s why you’ll be chosen for an important mission that will help your group work successfully with a vastly different group.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your adventures with a loved one will be an experience in fusion. Your ideas will run together; the experiences will combine and blur. At times, you will move as one.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Brilliant solutions are born of your mental flexibility. August offers liberation. September and November bring moneymaking opportunities not to be missed. You’ll sweat and toil first, and later dance and spend – a celebration of your success. Exciting travels will be featured in December and May. Capricorn and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 24, 31, 28 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m going to visit several art museums with my mother-in-law. She’s a Pisces, and I’m a Taurus. I know I’m supposed to be ruled by Venus and have an appreciation for the arts, but I feel uncomfortable in museums and never know what to say or feel about the art. I would rather go to a ball game. Since that’s not going to happen, and there are four museum visits in my near future, can you give me any advice? I’m dreading this trip.”

Right now, you’re looking at your trip to the museum as a performance you’re supposed to give, and that’s why you’re so concerned about having the right reaction to the right art. You’ll tap into your natural Venus-ruled nature when you become more selfish about the experience. What if the museum was assembled just to delight you? What if it was put out like a grand buffet, and you’re not expected to eat all of the food, but only to pick out what appeals to you? What if the museum was created just to surprise you? You fare best when you go in expecting nothing of yourself or the artwork. Instead of challenging yourself to have the “right” reaction, challenge the art to genuinely move you.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Actor and producer Tom Hanks has a full schedule of big-budget projects in his lineup, including the highly anticipated television mini-series “Lewis and Clark” and the wartime tale “Ithaca,” based on William Saroyan’s 1942 novel, “The Human Comedy.” Hanks was born when the sun and Mercury were both in intuitive Cancer and the moon, Uranus and Pluto were in entertaining Leo.
