HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, July 7, 2013: This year will get better and better. Don’t allow the unexpected to bother you; instead, use it to confirm that you are on the right path. You often might feel as if you are in the midst of power plays. Follow your intuition, as you are likely to be right-on. If you are single, you could meet someone in the most surprising way. Realize that the excitement of this bond will stem from your astonishment. If you are attached, the two of you will opt for a special trip together that adds to the caliber of your marriage. CANCER needs to be close to the water to remain centered.


The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

HHH Tension keeps building, despite your energy and desire to eliminate stress. Someone could be very demanding with his or her requests, which might cause a problem. You likely will do the unexpected, and that could be startling to many people. Tonight: Spontaneity works with plans.

This Week: Postpone decisions. Continue looking for other solutions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

HHHHH Recognize that you can’t go much further without clearing an obstacle. You see a situation differently from many people. Still, differences are not worth fighting about. Listen to your inner voice when dealing with others. Tonight: Check out some new technology.

This Week: You speak your mind in a new way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

HHH You’ll see a situation build. Your main concern will be the financial obligation. You might not want to make a big purchase just yet. Check out alternatives or hold off until there is a sale. Be more upbeat when dealing with a loved one. Tonight: Your treat.

This Week: Realize what you have to offer; don’t be insecure.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

HHHHH You might not be as conscious of a partner as he or she would like you to be. An older relative also might do whatever he or she needs to do in order to get your attention. The choices you make involve you and those you care about. Tonight: Beam in what you want.

This Week: Everyone appreciates it when you put your best foot forward.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

HHH You might be more closed off than usual. Whether you’re tired or just uncomfortable, take the day off. Curl up with the Sunday paper or a good book. Return calls at your leisure; you can pick and choose your company according to your mood. This is your day. Tonight: Order in.

This Week: Be a recluse for one more day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

HHHH Being surrounded by friends and loved ones seems very rewarding on one level, but on a different level, it might seem extremely frustrating. A partner or close loved one might be reactive, as this person seems to want more attention. Tonight: Make it dinner for two.

This Week: Use Monday to the max. Play it low-key from Tuesday on.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

HHH A partner continues to put you on an emotional seesaw, and you will feel each up-and-down motion. You might opt to go to work or visit with an older relative. Do whatever you need to in order to take a break from this volatile situation. Tonight: Invite a close friend to dinner.

This Week: You have handled pushy people before. What makes this person any different?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

HHHH You could wonder what might be best to do. Detach for a while, and escape through a movie or by exploring a museum. When you land, you will be centered and re-energized. Be open to an unexpected option that feels right. Tonight: Let your imagination lead the way.

This Week: Feedback is important.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

HHH Deal with a touchy person directly. You might want to evaluate where he or she is coming from. You will see a situation differently when it’s presented by someone in a new way. You might not realize that this person is talking about you. Tonight: Have a long-overdue talk.

This Week: Give others a chance to see how well they can do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

HHH You can’t change the status of a situation. You acknowledge and understand that fact. Therefore, you are better off moving past it. Others simply do not see what you see. An unexpected development on the homefront proves interesting. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.”

This Week: Allow others to take the lead.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

HHH The project that you have been putting off needs assessment. How you handle it and what you do with it could change. Understand that a friend’s or roommate’s interests are totally different. Don’t fight the inevitable. Tonight: Make it an early night.

This Week: Monday you are busy with work and more work.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

HHHH Recognize what needs to happen between you and someone else. Your vision is likely to change when you take an unexpected risk. You know what you want. Playfulness might prove to be more healing than simply having a conversation. Tonight: Act like it is Friday night.

This Week: When your mind is elsewhere, it is no surprise you can’t seem to settle in.
