When a story is so powerful in its message that it touches many people, in some way the story no longer belongs to the one telling it. Everyone claims it, and it becomes everyone’s story. The theme will further expand with the sun and Saturn creating cosmic tension. No one is alone in this, and we share responsibility for the way it turns out.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 9). By consciously choosing your models, guides and leaders, you put personal changes in motion. Those you admire and focus on will infuse your life with the qualities you value. By honoring your attractions, you’ll eliminate much stress. Decision-making becomes easy. Notable wins happen in August and February. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 40, 2, 31 and 17.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Tight friendships bring soul comfort and heart happiness. However, they should not be your only influence. Meeting new and different people on a regular basis makes you better, stronger and more versatile.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Affection, warmth, laughter, playfulness — these are the qualities you’d like certain relationships to reflect.
It’s not hard to get there, but it takes a directional shift away from a humdrum reality.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Glimpsing the inner workings of other people’s brains makes your life more interesting, but an even better reason to further your understanding of human psychology is to protect your assets and advance your goals.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re a force for good and a positive influence. Then again, everyone believes this. How do you know it’s really true? The more tolerant and compassionate your actions are, the more likely it is that you’re on the right side.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve been known to flirt without realizing it. Perhaps the word “flirt” is too reductive to describe your interaction style, which has more to do with stirring up good vibes than it does with any social agenda.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are an excellent planner, and it’s worthwhile to spend your time and energy on drawing up your ideas for the future. Your plans are like musical arrangements that add a feeling of excitement, drama or comedy to life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s not your job to make the people around you happy. Why not go where you’re happiest? You’re the one most qualified to navigate there, and no one will mind when you do this today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Having too many things to do would prevent you from doing any of them exceptionally well. Step back to look at your tasks with an objective eye. What can be axed that you wouldn’t miss?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Most will be won over by your charm. As for the ones who are not, go around them. Leave them alone. Under no circumstances should you try harder when there’s so much enjoyment to be gained by moving on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Things don’t have to go according to plan in order for you to feel like they are as they should be. You accepted long ago that you’re not in charge of it all, and that’s a relief, really!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even favorable circumstances, fortuitous opportunities and wonderful events can be incredibly stressful.
Excellent self-care becomes more important when excitement is in the air.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s not that you made a wrong choice; it’s just that you acted on what you knew. Now you know so much more. It takes a big person to reassess decisions and overturn them if they prove less than ideal.
