This horoscope is for entertainment purposes, mostly.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Rawr. Something tells me that this week, you should really take a few chances. You’ve been wondering whether you should be a little more open and honest and you’ve been scared because you hate it when your pride is hurt. Take the chance. If you face any rejection, you should use the experience so that you learn how to handle things with more grace.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You’ve got an urge to discover something new, something that takes you out of the usual set of things you do. Hit up a record store and pick up a CD from a section you’d never usually go to. If there’s a jazz/blues club nearby, that’s exactly where you need to be this weekend. The idea is to discover something new about you because you’re tired of always agreeing to the interests of others. Maybe it turns out that don’t like coffee and you’re more of a green tea person. It’s the little self-discoveries that are going to make you fall in love with yourself all over again.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’ve been feeling like going a little wild and you probably should. You’ve been playing it safe, which usually means that you’ve adhered to the 2-drink minimum and you feed an extra quarter into the meter even when you’re only going inside for 10 minutes. I think it’s time for you to dye your hair that color that you’ve been so worried about trying because you’re afraid people won’t like it. Take the chance because it will work out and alter your mood in a fabulous way. Also, if you’ve been the mediator in other people’s problems, you can let go of that burden and let people sort themselves out for a change.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You’ve recently become aware of your natural allure and you’ve been wondering how to channel that power. You’ve used it enough at work and you’re looking to see how it works for you socially. Channel this innate talent as you meet new people. It’ll open up conversations that wouldn’t have otherwise happened if you hadn’t let your intuition guide your questions. You’re going to hear interesting new stories and you’ll become a better judge of character.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
What you need now, more than anything, is a clear state of mind. You can’t judge new experiences based on old ones all the time. If you can start looking at things in your life with a fresh set of eyes, you won’t react to them the same way. This holds true for any potential relationships. If you judge that person based on what you already have been through with others, you could be missing out on something enjoyable. You’ll also find that you can’t always wait for the other person to make the first move, so don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Like some say, “Closed mouths don’t get fed.”
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
If anyone has been calling you stubborn, don’t internalize it. They may not realize that what they consider stubbornness is actually your immense determination. This same determination, your drive to work hard and stay on top, is responsible for many of your successes. And often, you’ve had to make choices that others don’t understand but you should always trust your judgement. Your gut tells you that you’re doing the right thing and you’re learning to tell the difference between emotional and logical decisions.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Seems like a lot of family time is coming your way. Whoever it is that you consider family will be asking for your presence, so you should accept the invitations. This could be coming for you at a great time of need if you have been feeling particularly lonely. Though you may feel reluctant at first, it could be healing for you to talk to these familiar people and hear them out. Even if you have nothing to add the the conversation, be a part of things by fixing up a pitcher of lemonade and serving everyone at the table.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Have you done any hiking yet? If you’re not near any trails, you may also want to walk around a nice part of your town for a couple of hours. If you’ve been driving everywhere this week, change things up because when you walk, you give a lot more attention to your surroundings. That’s also a lesson to apply to the current state of things. Take a moment to reflect on anything that may have slipped past you. You may even hear an echo of something someone said that may have required a little more of your attention.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Something is coming your way that demands you get creative. The funny thing is that creativity doesn’t always mean sitting down with a bunch of markers and watercolors and drawing still life images of pears and apples. Creativity, you will find, has a lot to do with how you create solutions for a situation. How well can you see all angles to a problem? Your ability to think intuitively is going to ease the minds of those who are relying on you to come up with a plan.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You are going to need to spend a little time alone, possibly pampering yourself. This is an okay time to give attention to your appearance without necessarily being vain. Check your skin, your nails and your hair. Select the best vitamins you can afford and focus on all the ways you can get rid of the stress you’ve been dealing with lately. Though this advice holds true for everyone, no one needs it more than you do. If you nurture the stress more than you nurture yourself, you’ll make some misinformed decisions and well, that’s gonna lead to even more problems. Watch out for #1 (you).
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’ve been hoping that a certain someone would be able to read your desires but so far, that experiment has failed. You can’t expect this person to know what you want and need because you’re going to have to ask for it directly. If you feel too scared to say out loud exactly what you want, just try short sentences. You’ll be pleased with the results when you can express your desires even if you have to do it in simplest form, such as, “I want to go out to dinner tonight.” Don’t worry about explaining yourself. Just say what you want and make sure you can get it.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
If you’ve been feeling trapped in a slump, don’t fight it. You’re becoming aware of the cyclical nature of life and you just have to ride out the slow and low times with a little patience and a plan. In fact, you might want to start using your planner as a way of keeping track of when these moments happen. Think about using little symbols like the successfully communicative frowny face: Try it for the rest of the year and see if you start to document a pattern for when the slumps come around. You can then combat the hard times with uplifting activities like going to the movies, attending live events, and spending more time with good friends.
