Horoscopes (July 3-9) 

ARIES: March 21 – April 20

You're in the midst of a situation that could go either way. If you're too stubborn to meet people in the middle, things will fly south. Issues that revolve around the inability to be truthful are messing everything up. Before life can turn out for the best, you're going to need to sit down and hash out problems that have gone from bad to worse. It's always hard to face the truth. Get real enough to look it in the eye. You have every right to be afraid of what will happen when you do, but what choice do you have? Nothing will improve until you find a way to return to integrity.



TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

Two arms and two legs don't seem to be enough; where is that Indian deity when we need him? You've got to Kung Fu your way through this. It would be so much easier if you had some help, or a way to call up the strength that you need to make it through the next couple of weeks. Having a spiritual mast to tie yourself to is never a bad idea. You've got enough on your plate to warrant the presence of a personal assistant. Calling upon your Angels, or the spirits of the departed, or all of the Ascended Masters will help you to turn all of this straw into gold.



GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

If it feels like something is missing, you might want to look twice at your situation. It does no good to look outside yourself for whatever you think you don't have; whatever that is will not materialize until it comes from within. Beyond the need to reflect more deeply on pretty much everything, you've got it made. As you contemplate issues that will ultimately turn your life around, another reason for living will emerge. Look for this to happen within the next six months. What it looks like and how it comes to pass is irrelevant. The best things in life happen by themselves.



CANCER: June 21 – July 20

You have a lot of questions about why you are here. Part of you thinks that you were cut out for more than this. So many of us have the idea that we should be "more" than we are, when in fact, if we knew enough to bring all of who we are to whatever we are doing, we could change the world. It might help to see yourself as a Lighthouse. The luminosity of your inner being fills everything in your space with a desire to live and grow. You could be a cashier. You could be splitting the atom. Wherever you happen to be, you have the power to shine light into the lives of others.



LEO: July 21 – August 20

Your well-being depends on the extent to which you are willing/able to embrace your purpose. Some of you may confuse that with following the tried and true route, when in fact, your purpose has more to do with a reason for living that is uniquely your own. Those of you who have upheld the status quo, whether it be Ozzie and Harriet, or a Hippie version of the same thing, need to come to terms with what's real for you. All of this may require you to walk away from things that have been part of your deal forever. The question is are you brave enough to take that leap?



VIRGO: August 21 – Sept. 20

The mechanics of living have made you forget that there's more to life than this. My God! It's so clear that you have to find a way to return to something more quintessential and real. When the ordinary no longer cuts it, where can we go? Going nuts wouldn't be a bad idea — but you know what that gets you. Maybe it's time to think about where you want to go and who you want to be when you grow up because nothing stays the same; and you're at a point where security is no longer about sticking to the plan or being anything other than the person you came here to be.



LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

You guys are going nuts trying to figure out what all of this is getting you. It could be life, your relationship, your job, your crazy ideas about what is "allowed," and every thought you've ever held about what you "deserve" that's got you on the ropes of wondering who you really are. Life is strange. All of us get to this place. When nothing makes sense and there's too much going on to stop long enough to find yourself in it, the only thing to do is slow down and realize that you're always being led, and there is plenty of guidance for those who know enough to invoke it.



SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

Things have reached the point where you've had enough of whatever it is that's kept you going until now. You could stay here, but something calls you to go searching for a different kind of life. Many constraints, real or imagined, have convinced you that you need to keep on keeping on. The truth is — all of that stuff is in your head. If it's your money issues, or the fact that "the kids need you," or the idea that it's always best to stick to the plan, start tossing around the idea that starting all over again could turn out to be the door that opens your heart to a miraculous life.



SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

If you could clear up one last thing, it would be so much easier for you to get on with your life. Literally or metaphorically, you are a hair's breadth away from having it all together. When nothing is black-and-white, and belief keeps us from trusting the inner voice, it's hard to know what to do. Don't think that you have to keep agreeing to anything that isn't working for you — and don't think that other people's stuff needs to override what it will take to get this to work for you. PS: You're here, too! Think about it; this time the choice could very well be up to you.



CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

So many things have piled up to hit you like a ton of bricks. If you wonder when it's going to quit, be patient and give it time. These issues have either totally disillusioned you, or they have honed a finer and more real version of who you came here to be. The need to continue to look yourself in the eye is paramount. Those of you who keep rocking your ego at the expense of your heart and soul will pay dearly at the end of the day. It's time to reel in the truth and quit focusing all of your energy on external things. Real power lies in the willingness to serve your Higher Self.



AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

No one sees things more clearly than you. It's interesting that you get to be the one who bears witness. At this point, you're a bit out of sorts because what you have born witness to has left you wondering why others are in denial about things that are beyond belief. You will see more of this before you leave this Earth. What people are made of is often hard to reconcile with what we expect from them. I've said it before: you can't change people — all you can do is love them. You don't have to let disappointment obscure the fact that everyone is doing the best that they can.



PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

You are weighing your options in a situation that requires the Wisdom of Solomon. More than anything, it matters who you choose to trust and whose advice you decide to follow. With everything riding on your decision, there is a level of fear thumping away in the background. This energy could be calling up worst-case scenarios that are by no means inevitable. From what I can see, the need to take a maverick approach will yield positive results. If you can dig up the strength to believe that you have the power to heal anything, what seems impossible will become real.
