July Horoscopes

Aries:  Although your good news is received like Marco Polo’s amazing but true stories from the Orient, you are too preoccupied to get carried away in celebratory speeches. You have to sort through a mess of clues before your upcoming face off with They-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

Taurus:  On the heels of Independence Day your planet opposes Pluto.  While citizens confront each other about their so called rights, law makers and those charged with maintaining the peace are trapped in the middle, demonized by both sides.  It’s going to get worse before it gets better, but for now your modest acts of kindness support a sane society, which is what’s really at stake in this tug of war.

Gemini:  You are ready to have fun, but some practical limitation holds you back until the 8th.  Then there is another problem called Mars, in your sign from June 21-Aug 3, stirring up passions and pricking you into action.  Don’t worry about feeling irritated; as soon as you meet the challenge at hand, you’ll feel very differently about what got you moving.

Cancer:  Venus enters your sign on the 4th, bringing pleasant company and good vibes; but at the same time it will be hard to relax before the 9th because of friendship or contractual obligations.  At the very end of the month Venus joins the sun in Leo, and a renewed fascination for the people you love contributes to your sense of security.

Leo:  You’ve got a test in humility at the beginning of the month, which will reinforce the classes in executive management you’re scheduled to complete over the next 10 years.  Your throne goes in storage till next summer, and you get a big desk with a filing system for sending invoices and paying bills.  July 29 starts your vacation.

Virgo:  If you’re one of those Virgo people that always have to be in control, this may not be such a fun month for you; there’s a lot of self expression on your list of things to do.  You do have some pressing communication that requires your grown up attention; but this month the inhabitants of the land of make believe would especially love to see you.

Libra:  This month you are a fine upstanding citizen in the country of do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Weeks one and two will cost you dearly, and you can expect to feel some resentment.  Hang in there till the 29th and you’ll have a chance to tell war stories to some one who appreciates the sacrifices you’ve made.

Scorpio:  All this talking makes you want to crawl into a hole.  You don’t have to engage in every conversation, but the ones you do are like money in the bank.  By the end of the month you’ll be glad you took the time out for visiting while the opportunity lasted.

Sagittarius:  Mars opposing your sign makes this a challenging month.  It’s enough distraction to warrant moving practice to another field, if you had that luxury.  The upside is you have a whole month to figure out whether you can mentally adjust to this level of static.

Capricorn:  This month you get some tender loving care with a good dose of medicinal gossip.  The overdue acts of kindness are no problem, but at the beginning of the month, the grapevine will be.  As much as you appreciate the loving support and friendly conversation, you’ll have to stay on your toes mentally to steer shared news from away from the rut of criticism.

Aquarius:  On July 10th begins our annual 5 month passage between the Sun and Uranus, an especially welcome retreat from the current supercharged revolution, not scheduled to peak until next summer.  Whether you’ve been out in the streets, or dismantling revered statues in more removed places, your attention will now be drawn to fulfilling contractual obligations and getting ready for an upcoming presentation.

Pisces:  Write it down, draw it; repeat the story.  Sometimes, it really does take years to make sense of a dream.  You won’t regret the time and effort it took to record the incomprehensible paths of the dreaming mind.

June Horoscopes

Our Sky Horoscopes also appear in The Triangle

Aries:  As the breastworks get under construction and all sides work to hold on to what they’ve gained, or not yet lost, keep in mind that all of this came about from people applying their minds to a problem as though their lives depended on it.  Your planet begins deal making on the 21st; don’t take foolish propositions personally as the air is permeated with wishful thinking.    

Taurus:  Now that you’ve got the right company and a little elbow room you can actually accomplish more.  Starting June 10th mounting distractions will make concentration difficult, but time-saving tips will be the tradeoff.

Gemini:  The opposite of a vampire, you thrive on light and know exactly how to use itBy the 13th you’ll be zipping around like a squirrel in its canopy of trees and insulated wires.  However, on the 19th you begin a passage through ominously tender territory.  Stories about blood sucking demons are just that, good for thrilling those who know better or for controlling those who don’t.

Cancer:  Some babies cry the minute they have a dirty diaper, others cry only when we lay them down to change it.  The new disposable ones are so good at concealing the facts of life that baby can go all day without anyone realizing his wrapper is loaded with waste water.  This month it becomes clear; no matter how effective institutions are at turning out better diapers, we still need thoughtful grownups like you to change them.

Leo:  By the 23rd you’ll feel like you can take a shower and shave, or maybe just soak in the tub awhile.  You will have zero control, but, according to the laws of luck and other factors, some mouse will be on its way to return past generosity.

Virgo:  On the 5th you begin a year of experimentation, but first you have an obligation lasting through the 16th to make sure everyone has the correct information.  In other words, whether or not you are a teacher, it is time to tally up the marks and get the grades out.  After that you can ride the currents of summer like a hang glider catching thermals.

Libra:  Your vacation begins on the 10th; the weekend after that your charms peak as the industrious self control you’ve practiced over the last year makes a favorable impression on fascinating new friends.

Scorpio:  Sharing the facts is taboo for you, but starting on the 21st you’re going to have to give a few up.  I can see you thinking, “How trustworthy is this person?  How much can I safely tell them?”  There is risk involved even after you make a penetrating assessment of the people you are dealing with.  Ultimately you have to take a chance; the contract will collapse without the relevant information.

Sagittarius:  The steam begins to dissipate on the 5th and conservation becomes the new strategy.  Your commitment to the cause in the upcoming year will draw you into studious practice.  By the 28th your planet will have gained enough distance from the Uranian revolution to concentrate on a revised code of ethics.

Capricorn:  If it seems as though everything comes to a standstill around the 12th you’ll know you are right on schedule.  The Saturnian train is long and reversing course feels like a miraculous feat of engineering.  You’ll be able to see signs of advancement by the 22nd.

Aquarius:  When Moses came down from the mountain to find all his comrades behaving badly, what did he do but go back up the mountain and write laws in stone.  Now that’s a serious dictator, but unlike pharaoh he fed the people without forcing them to build pyramids.  You may be brave enough and smart enough to whip pharaoh’s ass, but can you convince us to change our behavior?

Pisces:  I always wondered if Houdini got pissed off at cheap illusionists toward the end of his career because he was tired.  It must have been demoralizing to see fake spiritual fanatics raising the roof while he worked diligently to develop his skills.  Right now you are too busy testing your craft to worry about people appreciating your depth of devotion, but like Houdini, you are the one the students will come to when they want a real escape artist.
