For Thursday, July 30, 2015:
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might try to avoid a conflict, but it is inevitable. You understand where each party is coming from and what needs to happen, but you could feel powerless in convincing anybody of anything. Put your energy where it counts. Catch up on news. Tonight: Think “weekend.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might see the big picture, but helping others see the same vision could be quite the challenge. Avoid someone who is touchy, angry and seems to be seeking a fight. Do you really want that? Be more direct with a loved one. Tonight: Accept all the attention you get. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You keep hitting the same wall, and can’t seem to get around it. You might want to try a different method. You could be spending too much of your energy on frustration. Be aware of your limits with a child. Tonight: Decide to approach a situation in an entirely different way. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You have the ability to see a situation in a new way. How you handle a personal matter could change greatly once you stop sitting on your anger. Simply relax and try a different approach. You could be surprised by the results. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You will strive to handle a situation without losing your cool; however, don’t be surprised if the anger gets to you. The issue will be whether you direct it to the appropriate situation. How can anything change if you do not address your feelings? Tonight: Choose a stressbuster. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You have a way about you that draws many people toward you, especially earlier in the day. Communicating your feelings might be difficult. Try not to let your affections get involved. Dote on a child or new friend. Tonight: Off to the gym to work through stress. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your playfulness will emerge and take you in a new direction. Others are likely to want to join you. Avoid letting stress build up. The less said, the better. You might doubt the authenticity of someone’s feelings, but say nothing for now. Tonight: In weekend mode. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You could be in a situation where you are the only person communicating. Others might have difficulty responding in an authentic manner. You will be on top of a major change, if you can remain open. Check in with a neighbor sometime today. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might not understand what all the fuss is about until someone close to you launches into a tirade. You’ll want to advise this person on the best way to proceed. Be smart and initiate a conversation with a respected friend for some feedback. Tonight: Let the party begin. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to open up a conversation in the morning, but someone could receive that gesture the wrong way. You will know if this person misread your words and intentions. You might need to make amends. Tonight: Accept a dinner invitation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be in a situation where you don’t know how to complete or work through a problem. Hold off on making a move, and you will see that others feel the same way. Be open to a discussion, and the outcome will be better than you had imagined. Tonight: All smiles. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Use the morning to further an important cause. The more supporters you have, the better off you will be. Honor a fast change, and know full well what your limits are. By midday, you might want to pull back some. Tonight: Get some zzz’s before your weekend starts.
