Horoscopes for June 19, 2014

From page A9 | June 19, 2014 |

Feelings factor in significantly to most people’s decision-making process. However, this is one day to avoid making decisions solely based on feeling. The Pisces moon is stirring things up. Even the strongest feelings are subject to change. Some feelings will even lie. Invite the voice of reason to bring objectivity into the mix.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You weren’t put on this Earth to live up to other people’s expectations, although you’re not doing such a bad job of that. Relax. Your best efforts are more than enough.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The unusual way in which your mind works makes you uniquely equipped for a job, so hopefully you will accept the proposal made to you this afternoon by a kindred spirit in need.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It will feel like your world is a movie screen, and you are the director, suggesting that the characters behave in one way or another under your desired lighting scheme. Enjoy your powers of persuasion while they last.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most children do not know how to take responsibility for things until they are shown by adults. The one who isn’t stepping up to the plate may not have been taught to do right. Your compassion is warranted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The way to obtain more so-called “natural ability” is to learn and practice it. This is the secret on which you will work and work until you can create magic for your spectators.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Realizing that “to every thing there is a season,” you will not spoil the fun by trying to prolong it. Instead, you’ll savor the sweetness while it is happening and, when the time is right, let it go with open fingers.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You think you have just a few steps left in a project, but as you near the exit, a whole new wing will be revealed. You’re not getting out of this one quickly, but with an open mind and a stellar attitude, you’ll get out of it gracefully.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those who are up to no good cannot trick you into doing their bidding. They will ask directly. They need willing accomplices. Make it known that you’re not interested, and you’ll be in the clear.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People will stick their noses into whatever territory is allowing noses today. Be discriminating in this regard because you have a right to be, and also because it makes you more mysterious.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your sign mate the beautiful and elusive Marlene Dietrich suggested, “It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.” You’ll be making assessments about your inner circle.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Silence can be a kind of hobby, especially to those who get very little of it on a daily basis. Your own need for peace and quiet will come into question. Take what you can of it!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you believe in spirit guides, and you call them, they might send you an intuitive burst of insight about how you can “fix it.” They won’t “fix it” themselves, though. They are advisers, not employees.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The spirit of community is alive and well for you in this solar year, and you’ll love what your friends and neighbors bring to your life. Next month focuses on a difficult but exciting venture that is too big to tackle alone. An August victory goes to your whole team. Changes around the domestic realm increase your comfort and security level. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 11, 24, 48 and 6.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: Yesterday, a Libra asked how to make faster decisions instead of agonizing over the options.

To make decisions faster and with more joy, it will be necessary to stop assigning a life-and-death kind of gravitas to the ones that don’t warrant such an approach, which is to say most of them. So how do you lighten up when a choice feels more important than it should be?

The first step is to accept where you are and embrace your feeling instead of rejecting it. In other words, instead of saying, “I shouldn’t be feeling so grave about when to sell my house,” try a dialogue more along the lines of: “Wow, I am having a strong feeling about the sale of my house, and I’ll work through it. It feels like a huge part of me is invested in this. Is that feeling true? What will happen if I don’t sell? I probably won’t die. If I do sell, I’ll live, too. So right now I’m having a strong and fearful feeling, and that’s fine. Let’s work through it.”

More on this topic on Saturday.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: This Gemini rapper’s hit “Thrift Shop” put him on the pop charts, and he’s stayed there ever since. Macklemore’s gift for communicating with clarity and humor is what Mercury-ruled Geminis are known best for. Macklemore has both his sun and moon in this fast-talking sign. His passionate Mars in show-stopping Leo lends an instinct for making the most entertaining choice.
