Horoscopes for June 30, 2014

By
From page A7 | June 30, 2014 |

On this last full day of Mercury’s current retrograde cycle, it’s best to deal with reality the way it is instead of fantasizing about the way we want it to be. The level of receptiveness we bring to our environment will be the key to our success. By responding to circumstances instead of ignoring or resisting them, you’ll change your world.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll probably feel only half-awake until an afternoon jolt brings you back to full attention. After the adrenaline burst, you’ll not only be back on track, but you’ll be highly motivated, too.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Faith and forward thinking are what’s needed. It’s the ones with the courage to lose sight of the shore who are most likely to make it to the brave new world across the big wide ocean.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). At the end of the day, your muscles will be as tired as your mind, as your heart soars with the exhilaration of knowing you made a considerable difference in the lives of others.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will prize brevity and efficiency today and gravitate to the people who can make things happen quickly and without fuss. Leo, Virgo and Capricorn people are your best bets in this regard.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you just have to create your own neural pathways to feeling good. You’ll do so by considering all of the ways that things are mostly going in your favor.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your eyes will give you away, which is why you feel like shielding those windows to your soul under glamorous dark glasses. You’re not so sure you want your soul on display today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How can you live here now if your mind is over there in the future? Normally, you can’t. And yet today the swift dancing of your thoughts will have you seemingly in two timeframes at once.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Friendships are like museums now, with whole little worlds stored inside them just waiting for you to stroll through and let yourself be transported for a while.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This task you’ve taken on recently is all new territory, but the old rule applies: Fall seven times; stand up eight. Or nine. Or 10. Or however many it takes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The social principle that holds true today is this: You can’t try to be like someone and influence that person at the same time. Because your influence will be crucial, dare to be different.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s time to reexamine what constitutes “acceptable” in your eyes, because your tolerances have changed slightly. Making adjustments now will prevent upset later.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Right now it may feel as though your dreams have been scattered to the wind in the way of dandelion seeds, but that doesn’t mean they are any less real.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. There’s no returning to the old you. Those ways and methods are now a dry, uninhabitable husk that you leave behind as you spread your wings and fly to a new land. You’ll negotiate a special deal in July. Family thrives because of you in August. In September, you’ll be singled out and paid to represent a large group. Pisces and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 33, 5 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “This is creepy. I have received three tarot readings over the course of three days, and each one prominently featured the Death card. I’m only 35, and I’m not sick, so my mind is racing to some kind of accident or murder situation, and it has me really stressed out. Am I going to die?” Most likely. But chances are very good that you will live a long life first. The Death card is an indication of an ending but not necessarily The Ending. So you can stop worrying about your imminent demise. Look closely at that creepy card. There’s the grim reaper, boney fingers around his scythe, while a death-white, thorny-stemmed rose opens its petals to the blood-red sun. Wait – what a pretty rose. And the sky looks warm with hope, free birds dotting the horizon. Is this a sunrise, or a sunset? The fertile flower and fauna suggest that as much as death is inevitable, life is equally inevitable. The circle is unbroken. My interpretation of this persistent card showing up in your readings is that something will occur to inspire you to reinvent yourself – to change your life, to live a new incarnation of yourself, to create something fresh and different.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Dan Aykroyd, who was born when the sun, Venus, Mars and Uranus were all in mystical water signs, came into the world with a condition called syndactyly, also known as webbed toes. His eyes are also two different colors. Perhaps embodying surprising and unusual traits inspired his creation of characters like Beldar Conehead and ghostbuster Dr. Raymond Stantz.
