Horoscopes for June 26, 2014

By
From page A9 | June 26, 2014 |

The optimist suggests that you actually can do everything; you just can’t do it all at once. The eve of the new moon in Cancer is a perfect moment to prioritize your efforts. The moon, Mercury and Venus all in Gemini suggests that you talk over your plans with friends, loved ones and business associates because they’ll have valuable insights.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A deeper look into your possessions will reveal what you have, what you thought you’d lost and what you’d totally forgotten about. It also will prevent unnecessary future purchases.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve developed your aesthetic through the years. It’s not always the easiest thing to have a high level of taste, though. The rest of the world rarely complies. That’s why you’ll be so happy with today’s discovery.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is no “whatever” in your vocabulary. There is only what you would prefer, and you’re not afraid to let people know that in the nicest way possible. The world will bow to your command of language.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s better to take off a small chunk of a project and see what you can do with it than to tackle a large chunk that you’ll be unable to finish in a reasonable time period. Leave large margins for human error.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s better to share something you made instead of the commercial version. People want to experience the special thing you do, not what anyone with the money could buy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Karma will swing around for those who have wronged you. Not that you were waiting for it, but it’s still comforting when the universe balances itself out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are present and sharp. You’ll quickly respond to others in a way you didn’t feel up to yesterday. You fully inhabit the moment, and it bends and stretches to love you back.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The new venture is, at this point, not quite exciting enough to pull you forward. You’re not reaching far enough with this one! When you look back at these first moves, they will seem laughably conservative.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You haven’t had the time to spend on the thing that really matters to you, because you haven’t made the time. Willfully take control of the schedule, or it’s not going to happen.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Confidence and comfort will be intrinsically linked. If you’re perfectly dressed for the occasion at hand, you’ll have a distinct advantage. Looking and feeling good help you shine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If very few people have accomplished something, there is a good reason: Excellence doesn’t happen overnight. You’ll be inspired, and you’ll make a commitment to rise to the level of excellence in a new area.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Make up your own mind about people. Rumors will fly, but don’t believe what you hear. Go straight to the source whenever possible, or, better yet, just don’t take part in the drama.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. A trial is over, and you’re ready to play! July will improve your status, and a new friend will entertain and help you. The enthusiasm you bring to work will translate into bonus money in September. Projects relating to writing, marketing, publishing and the like open new income sources. Hot dates show up in October and December. Libra and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 45, 13 and 9.

VENUS IN GEMINI: Venus newly in Gemini wants to turn romance into a game. So how do you know you’re playing fair at the game of love? Here are a few guidelines for this Venus-in-Gemini transit:

Follow the golden three-step rule of entertainment. Romance remains one of the most engaging and exciting forms of entertainment out there, and it flows best when it follows this golden three-step rule:

1. Tell them what you’re going to do.

2. Do it.

3. Tell them what you did.

This three-step rule sets up an effective rhythm for communication. The predictability of this pattern provides an optimum structure that promotes understanding and prevents chaos and confusion. You can apply the formula to every nuance of dating. For instance:

1. “I’m going to call you on Thursday because I want to know what you’re up to lately.”

2. (On Thursday) “I’m glad we’re talking. I love getting to know you better.”

3. That was a fun conversation. Thanks!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Look out, entertainment world! Ariana Grande is coming to take you over – and a sweet ruler she will be. This comedic Cancer has been a hit with the tween set on shows like “Victorious” and “Sam and Cat” and now makes a hobby of climbing the Billboard charts with her soulful retro dance sounds. Her Venus in Taurus indicates Grande has the tenacity to become a great star.
