For Monday, July 6, 2015 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Try to start this day gently, by doing whatever you can to keep the peace, especially with parents and authority figures. Power struggles will be difficult to avoid. Have patience. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Tread carefully in discussions with others today, especially when talking to siblings, neighbors and relatives. People are too eager to convince each other with what they want to say. It’s important to stop and listen. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Disputes about possessions or something you own or financial negotiations are likely today. But when all is said and done, isn’t this just a power struggle? CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A battle of egos might take place between you and a partner or close friend today. Knowing this ahead of time, you can be gracious and not add fuel to the fire. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your ability to research and dig deep for answers today is phenomenal. In fact, there is nothing you will not do to find what you’re looking for. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your relations with a friend or, more likely, someone in a group might be problematic today, because everyone wants the last word. It might not be worth wasting your breath. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be patient with authority figures, including parents and bosses, because encounters are so intense that some relationships will break down today. Speaking of which, machinery and equipment at home might break down as well. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Power struggles with others will be challenging today. Avoid being overwhelming with others. Never forget what a powerful, strong sign you are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A different point of view about how money should be spent or used could lead to an argument today. Make sure that what you’re fighting over is worth it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might have some intense encounters with others today; however, they might reveal aspects of yourself to you. Selflearning is important. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You will be relentless in your search for information today, because you will stop at nothing. You’re like a dog with a bone — you will leave no stone unturned. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Avoid crime-ridden areas and dangerous places, because this is a potentially violent day. Don’t place yourself in jeopardy. YOU BORN TODAY You have a strong relationship with others because you are basically a passionate person. In turn, your passion magnetizes others to you. This year you will face a major decision. Save your money in the first half of the year and cut down on overhead expenses, because this will help you later in the year. Your integrity and patience will be tested. Birthdate of: Gregory Smith, actor; the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader; Hilary Mantel, author. (c) 2015 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
