HAPPY BIRTH­DAY for Mon­day, July 17, 2017: This year you will be learn­ing how to break out of the sta­tus quo by tap­ping into an enor­mous re­serve of cre­ativ­ity. As you open up to new think­ing, your life seems to flow more eas­ily. If you are sin­gle, the type of per­son you are at­tracted to could change rad­i­cally. If you are at­tached, your sweetie could be taken aback by how much you are chang­ing. Tau­rus might not re­veal their real feel­ings to you.

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 have a ten­dency to go overboard, as you might not be get­ting a clear read­ing of what is go­ing on around you. Do not lose your tem­per out of frus­tra­tion. Know that oth­ers also will be deal­ing with the in­nate chaos of the day.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) You are all smiles, no mat­ter what you de­cide to do. You have a friend who serves as a muse for you. At times, you might feel as though this per­son seems oth­er­worldly. In­spi­ra­tion flows from your very ac­tive imag­i­na­tion right now.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 20) You might feel a lit­tle off. You have been run­ning on high lately, and sud­denly bore­dom with your rou­tine sets in. You gen­er­ally know how to liven up a sit­u­a­tion like this, but you could find it dif­fi­cult right now. Al­low your­self the space to do what you want.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) Note how you feel much more open when in the com­pany of friends. Zero in on what you want. You could feel as if you have no choice but to pur­sue a par­tic­u­lar goal. Lis­ten to your in­stincts, and you will make the cor­rect de­ci­sion.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) When a plan back­fires, you’ll be called upon to use your imag­i­na­tion. You need to find a way to break past self-im­posed lim­i­ta­tions. The in­stinct to con­form might arise, but the so­lu­tion to find­ing

your own way lies in your dy­namic think­ing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-sept. 22) HHHH Many peo­ple could be act­ing out. If you can man­age to avoid be­ing trig­gered, you’ll be amazed by what hap­pens. Don’t han­dle any money ne­go­ti­a­tions to­day, as the re­sults prob­a­bly won’t be to your lik­ing. Add more hu­mour to your in­ter­ac­tions.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH What seems like an op­por­tune time to have an im­por­tant one-onone dis­cus­sion with a loved one ac­tu­ally might prove to be other­wise. Take your time, see how the other party feels and then de­cide whether to act. Ten­sion elec­tri­fies the mo­ment.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might be strong-willed, but you aren’t dumb — you know when to de­fer to oth­ers. Bumps in the road seem in­evitable to­day. Min­i­mize any ob­sta­cles that re­sult from not-well-thought-out plans. You will know when to charge right in.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Car­ing feel­ings might be over­shad­owed by in­se­cu­rity or un­re­al­is­tic ex­pec­ta­tions. You eas­ily could be hurt by what seems like an in­no­cent com­ment. The more you refuse to act on th­ese feel­ings, the bet­ter off you will be.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Oth­ers at­tempt­ing to walk in your shoes might be left speech­less. You’ll come up with some sug­ges­tions. Your cre­ativ­ity surges to un­prece­dented lev­els. Those around you might want to tap into your in­ge­nu­ity.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) If you feel in­clined to stay home, do. You are likely to flour­ish in this sit­u­a­tion. You might feel of­fk­il­ter and won­der what would be best for you to do. Don’t al­low your­self to be trig­gered by an in­signif­i­cant com­ment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might feel as if you are be­ing diplo­matic, but based on some­one else’s re­ac­tion, you are likely to dis­cover other­wise. Look­ing at the sit­u­a­tion openly could be par­tic­u­larly re­veal­ing. Touch base with a dear friend or loved one.
