For Friday, July 17, 2015 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Stay light on your feet today so you can grab opportunities that suddenly come your way. Surprise invitations to sports events, parties and social occasions are likely. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Stock the fridge, because you might spontaneously entertain others at home today. Something will change your home routine, and it will likely be pleasant and exciting. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) An exciting day! Expect to meet new people and see new places. In addition, your brain is pumping out bright, clever ideas at an astounding rate! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Keep an eye on your finances and cash today, because you might find money or you might lose money. Similarly, something unexpected might impact your possessions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, dancing with unpredictable Uranus; this makes you feel spontaneous and eager for life! Throughout this day, your moods will change, but you’ll be ready for anything. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your psychic abilities are highly tuned today. In fact, you might start picking up heavy metal rock music through your Mercury fillings. Ha ha. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Spontaneous get-togethers with people you don’t often see will invigorate your day. You also might meet someone new who is unusual, bohemian or avant-garde. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your ambition is strong today, as well as your intuition. Because you feel confident and self-reliant, others will no doubt listen to you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Unexpected travel opportunities might fall in your lap today. If so, act quickly, because this window of opportunity is brief. It also might apply to educational opportunities. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A bright, clever idea might help you solve the problem with inheritances or shared property. This is the good news. The bad news is that something unexpected could impact shared property or inheritances. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Partners and close friends will be the source of a surprise today. They might do something unusual, or you might meet someone who is unusual. It could be anything. It’s not a boring day! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your work routine will be interrupted, perhaps due to the introduction of high-tech equipment or even the failure of such equipment. Nevertheless, you will meet interesting people today. YOU BORN TODAY No matter how quiet and reclusive you are, you are ambitious and hope to be at the top of your field. Fortunately, you have strong self-confidence. This is the year you have been waiting for. It’s a time of expansion and great activity. Take advantage of opportunities. A major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to try your wings!
