The Hamilton Spectator - - GO - JAC­QUE­LINE BI­GAR

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY for Wed­nes­day, July 20: This year you could take your­self very se­ri­ously, and might push away some of your more spon­ta­neous as­so­ci­a­tions. Con­sider whether you have be­come too up­tight, es­pe­cially about ro­mance and cre­ative mat­ters. Try to lighten up once in a while. If you are sin­gle, you’ll want to re­late to oth­ers on a dif­fer­ent level. Try to be au­then­tic. If you are at­tached, you will have sev­eral dis­cus­sions about the next step in your re­la­tion­ship. Are you ready for an ad­ven­ture? Plan on de­fer­ring more often to your sweetie. 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)

HHHH Friends sur­round you, and you might not even re­al­ize that some of them are also your al­lies in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions. Your will­ing­ness to deal with dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions adds to your pop­u­lar­ity. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

HHH You might not be pleased with ev­ery­thing that is hap­pen­ing at work. You’ll won­der why you are putting up with this sit­u­a­tion, but it prob­a­bly is be­cause you feel as if you have no other choice. You do, as long as you are OK with con­flict. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

HHHHH De­tach, and you are likely to come up with in­ter­est­ing ideas that seem agree­able to those around you. You might won­der why you have not made cer­tain sug­ges­tions sooner. Don’t spec­u­late — just be more open about your thoughts. CANCER ( June 21-July 22)

HHHH To feel more con­nected with oth­ers, plan on more one-on-one time. As a re­sult, some of them are likely to see a sit­u­a­tion in a new light, and also might be more com­fort­able with be­ing open. A dis­agree­ment is not as se­ri­ous as you make it out to be. LEO ( July 23-Aug. 22)

HHHH Be more in touch with your needs be­fore you try to work through a com­pro­mise. You could find a friend or close loved one to be ex­tremely de­mand­ing. For per­sonal rea­sons, you might not be able to agree to this per­son’s terms. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

HHH You often make a fuss when you’re feel­ing pres­sured. Just be­cause some­one else makes a re­quest does not mean you have to go along with it. Your sense of hu­mour plays a sig­nif­i­cant role as you adapt. Lis­ten to your in­tu­ition. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

HHHH You could be more play­ful than usual. You rec­og­nize the light­ness of your mood and will try to be ap­pro­pri­ate in a se­ri­ous meet­ing. You might be som­bre, and oth­ers will want to cheer you up. Will you let them think that they’ve suc­ceeded? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

HHH Per­sonal mat­ters might be­come dom­i­nant and chal­leng­ing. You have the abil­ity to read be­tween the lines with oth­ers, es­pe­cially loved ones and close friends. You could feel pres­sured by some­one you re­spect and look up to. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

HHHH You tend to come off far more se­ri­ous than you might re­al­ize; oth­ers’ re­ac­tions will clue you in. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion could be ex­cel­lent, even if you don’t see eye to eye with some­one. A friend might be too chal­leng­ing to play it cool. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

HHH Curb a ten­dency to be de­mand­ing and too sure of your­self. As a re­sult, oth­ers will be more open in conversations. A dif­fer­ence of opin­ion is just that and noth­ing more, al­though you might want to take a stand if the is­sue in­volves money. AQUARIUS ( Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

HHHHH You’ll hit your power days this month. You might want to han­dle any mat­ter that you feel is de­pen­dent on your en­ergy and drive now. A friend usu­ally is not re­cep­tive to your ideas. Do not al­low this per­son to get to you. Main­tain a per­spec­tive. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

HHHH You know what you want. Any at­tempt to com­mu­ni­cate might come off as be­ing too se­ri­ous for oth­ers to un­der­stand where you are com­ing from. If you get in a tiff with some­one, you might want to step back and at­tempt to speak in a dif­fer­ent tone.
