Horoscopes (July 12-18)

Life happens, even to those who read the stars and planets. If Cal had seen it coming, perhaps she would not have gone to the pool on the 4th, whereby a simple trip resulted in a broken hip. But we do know enough about astrology to understand that something similar would have happened, eventually. For those who understand that time is not linear and that we live in timeless cycles, this week’s horoscopes are a throwback to the week of July 12, 2009. I invite you all to review where you were then and where you are now; a good exercise for all of us. In the meantime, enjoy this week’s timeless ‘scopes. And keep in mind, anything worth saying, bears repeating.

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You've waited forever for someone to come around. If they could see this through your eyes they'd know how you feel. Don't count on anything. They may be too stuck in their own little fantasy to be there for anyone.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

What you don't want to see has warped your perspective. Editing out whatever you're unwilling to confront has turned your life into a lie. It's getting harder and harder to live this way. Is this what you want?

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Recent changes have turned your world around. You're OK with it but others aren't so sure. Don't let their fears interfere with your growth. Trust me: underneath all the chaos there is a wealth of opportunity.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Nobody promised you anything. You misread their intentions. If you feel hurt, it's because you deluded yourself. Don't go looking for comfort in anything but the truth; it may hurt but it's the solution to everything.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

How far do you think this can go? It'll go through the roof if nothing in you decides to hold it back. The fear of failure and the fear of success live side by side. Does it scare you to think that you could do this?

VIRGo (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

Your life has a pulse. Right now you're between beats, waiting for the next one. If you're wondering what's coming, it'll be less of a worry if you stop long enough to get in touch with where you are now.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You aren't sure about this because it defies logic; some things can't be figured out. And who's to say it isn't a Karmic thing? Fate put you here. It's up to you to have the experience, not to judge it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

You have hell to pay, but don't we all? Nothing's easy because you make it hard. There's a blessing in every curse. Do your best to find it. You've got it made on too many levels to be whining about this.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

Settling scores with people usually involves an ultimatum or two. You're not sure what will happen when you deliver this one. It doesn't matter because you have no choice; it's time to lay it all on the line.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

You'd rather be anywhere but here. If it seems as if you have no choice, look around. It's the time you spend putting out other people's fires that keeps you stuck. Light one of your own and move on!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

You didn't come here to have a cookie-cutter relationship. The more you try to make this normal the more insane it will get. If you really want this to work stop trying to be mom and dad and do your own thing.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

You can't believe you're doing this. We surprise ourselves when we step out of line. But who's to say where the lines are? Only you know what's right for you. If you're OK with this, go ahead and go for it.
