Your horoscope from July 3 to 9, 2014

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Since the start of the year, the stars have continued along an intensity track. We’ve experienced Venus retrograde, Mars retrograde, and two Mercury retrogrades so far. Uranus/Pluto is still busting up the concrete.

      July’s stars continue to punch the clock on the construction project called “altered reality”. Friday, the sun’s opposition to Pluto brings a conflict or stalemate to a head. It forces a power play, necessitates a change to the agenda, expectations, or rules. It can expose corruption or underhandedness. Sun/Pluto dishes up an appropriate time for a make-over, do-over, or complete overhaul.

      Saturday’s Libra moon can swing it from one extreme to another, but, overall, there’s better and easier moving it forward from here. It’s a great weekend to go exploring, to socialize, shop, meet new friends, and for intimate encounters.

      Sunday/Monday, Venus, Uranus, and the Scorpio moon keep passion and interests well placed. We’re onto a productive track. Building to Tuesday morning, the sun’s square to Uranus keeps it lively and perhaps a bit edgy, but as the day progresses, the moon’s trine to Jupiter and the sun’s trine to Saturn bring all the right ingredients together. It’s a day of good accomplishment. It’s a smooth go for contract or business dealings, legal transactions, and for setting on a course of action. Something important, perhaps long awaited, can come to fruition. Over this coming week, the stars keep success potentials optimized.

      March 20 - April 19

      Larger forces are at work on through Saturday. Extra flexibility will diffuse some of the pressure. At the same time, when impulse strikes, it could play the right card. Keep it fun and enjoyable; treat yourself or another and you’ll be glad you did. Sunday/Monday, tackle the important stuff such as banking and finish what’s necessary. Tuesday/Wednesday, get on with something new.

      April 19 - May 20

      Stay on top of it; effort pays off Thursday/Friday. Saturday could keep you busier or more involved than you intended, but so be it. You could run the expense up, too, but it’s worth the pleasure you get or the good it does you. Sunday through Wednesday can see you on a productive turnaround with someone or something.

      May 20 - June 21

      Any changes, renovations, or upgrades you aim for now are well worth the extra effort or money involved. You are wise to invest in yourself and your future security, even if it means toughing it out for now. Having said that, Saturday through Wednesday you should find progress comes naturally and readily. Saturday keeps a social, romantic, or creative spark well lit.

      June 21 - July 22

      Friday’s sun/Pluto is likely to pull up something that you may have resisted addressing. You may face significant opposition from an institution, an authority, or a significant other but it will force you to come up with something more substantial and doable. To the positive, it prompts a whole new perspective and attitude. Monday/Tuesday, optimize on lucrative stars; give your best shot.

      July 22 - August 22

      Yes, there’s stuff to deal with. You’ll work it out pre- and post-weekend. Saturday, socialize, shop, share; you’ll move from one thing to another without skipping a beat. Rely on spontaneous choices to deliver. Tuesday, get the show rolling, put it out there, make a deal, go for it. You’ll get farther, faster, better, and more—and with ease.

      August 22 - September 22

      Friday/Saturday changes the score in some significant, even dramatic way. It’s all in or not, there’s no middle of the road. You want it? There’s no sparing the expense. Facing a dilemma regarding money, investments, your social life, a career direction, or an intimate relationship? Watch for circumstances to make the decision for you. There’s improvement, ease, and more reward coming your way.

      September 22 - October 22

      Revved up and ready for action? It’s a kick-it-off weekend. The transiting Libra moon gets you up and out the door—but it doesn’t stop there. Life will keep you motoring right along through mid-month. While you can’t get away from stress and tension, overall the stars are getting you to the right place and time. Tuesday, you’ll accomplish plenty.

      October 23 - November 22

      TGIF! It’s on to smoother sailing from here. Aim for a chill-out, romantic-escape, or please-yourself weekend. On vacation or back to work, by Monday your energy, ambition, and focus are on a full recharge. Start of the new week, you’ll cover more ground with less effort. Tuesday, success and satisfaction are readily found. You’ll accomplish what you aim for, and perhaps more.

      November 22 - December 21

      A social or get-around-town weekend provides a welcome distraction from the serious stuff. Then again, if it’s a work weekend, it can be a good moneymaker, especially if you cater to the public. Saturday through next Wednesday should be easy to take. Reward, desired results, and solid gains: Tuesday’s right-place, right-time Sagittarius moon shoots straight onto the target.

      December 21 - January 19

      It’s a major make-over time. Finding a happy medium is where it’s at, but it hasn’t been easy as of late. To stand your ground while making concessions has been testing, but you are getting there now. Friday’s sun/Pluto moves you past the stalemate and onto a better platform. Saturday through Tuesday, you’ll reap the reward.

      January 20 - February 18

      You’ll get it under much better control from here. In fact, everything changes from here. You’ll see more visible progress, especially through next Wednesday. While now is a great time to travel or to enjoy a staycation, there’s good business to be had. Tuesday is a confidence and security builder, a fits-right day.

      February 18 - March 20

      By Friday you’ll have surpassed most of the pressure, holdup, or tough stuff. Saturday, the unexpected could launch your day and/or kick it up an extra notch. Sunday onward, a change of direction or change of scenery is ideal. Tuesday, the timing is great; so are the gains. Expectations are readily met; satisfaction is easily found.
