HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, July 25, 2016: This year, especially after summer, you will find that you have the energy, intellect and communication skills to get what you want in life. You see others with greater depth and understanding, which allows you to be more accepting of them. If you are single, you could meet someone special when you’re out during your normal routine. If you are attached, the two of you see each other in a new light, which is likely to rekindle the passion you once experienced. Aries fires you up! 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)
You might feel ready to deal with whatever lands on your plate, but you’ll want to avoid a conflict with someone who has control over you. A power play could be tiring. Why bother? You will feel better if you walk away from this hassle.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You might not feel as comfortable proceeding as you have been, and you could be hesitant about making new choices. Your fear stems from not wanting to make an error. Remember that everyone makes mistakes, which are opportunities to grow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You understand what it means to have successfully completed a task that allows you to bypass an obstacle, either professionally or emotionally. You will be witnessing this type of victory now. Reach out to a friend for feedback.
CANCER ( June 21-July 22)
If you collide with the powers that be, you could stumble and fall. Be diplomatic when facing a very controlling person in your life. You’ll have a greater ability to make a difference through politeness, even if you’re addressing differences.
LEO ( July 23-Aug. 22)
The only limits you have right now are self-imposed. An obstacle might present itself; you can make a big deal out of it, or you can choose to roll with it. Note what your inclination is, as it is likely to tell you a lot.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You enjoy relating on a one-onone level with others. Ease up and relax a bit more. Don’t make decisions if you are feeling uncomfortable. Honour what is happening within your immediate circle, but still make time for an important someone.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your ability to get along with a lot of people comes forward. You have a natural inclination to do the right thing in social situations. If someone creates an uproar, you will walk away, as you refuse to get pulled in to others’ drama.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might want to be more responsive to the people who make a difference in the quality of your life. Try to avoid a difficult scenario that involves a power play. Of course you could win, but at what cost?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You have lots of ideas whenever you see something go wrong. Share more of your creativity with those who are receptive; you will feel more appreciated as a result. Others’ responses will stimulate your imagination.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Stay centred. Your abilities to be nonreactive and to absorb necessary information will emerge. Don’t get involved in a power play, no matter how tempting it might seem. Being polite, though not necessarily politically correct, will be more successful.
AQUARIUS ( Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You could be in the position to make a major change in how you deal with those around you. A lot of people seek you out for advice. Follow through on what you offer as well. Refuse to get into a power play — you will be a lot happier in the long run.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Someone will do whatever it takes to get his or her way, and you know it. Watch this person in action, as he or she might try to draw you in. Don’t become financially involved with this person.
