HOROSCOPES: JULY 1, 2020
MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 8 to 8:30 p.m. After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Dan Aykroyd (1952) shares your birthday. You are adventurous and determined, but you are easily hurt. It’s your turn for a funloving year ahead! You will be more popular and will enjoy warm friendships. You will also be more grateful for your life and will appreciate the everyday happiness and beauty around you. This year is the time for an important choice. Choose wisely.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Unexpected events might take place at home or within your family, especially with a parent. Someone you least expect might contact you or drop by. Perhaps you’ll hear sudden news that affects your home? It’s a day full of the unusual.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Today is full of new ideas, new places, new faces and new feelings because everything is a bit edgy. Expect to learn something new or get a fresh slant on something. Your imagination will also be heightened. In conversations with others, you will be entertaining!
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Exciting money-making ideas might occur to you. If shopping, you might spontaneously buy something. This is the classic day for sudden decisions about financial matters and shopping. Tread carefully, but don’t run from a good idea.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Circumstances have been building up and you want freedom and space! You want the opportunity to do your own thing! You want to call your own shots. Finally, you have a chance to do this, and it feels wonderful!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A secret surprise awaits you. It might be something that jumps out of the woodwork, or perhaps it’s an idea that has been percolating in the back of your brain? There’s no question that you’re cooking up something that is coming to a slow boil — and is going to need someplace to go!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might meet a real character today, someone unusual or avant-garde. Or perhaps someone you already know will do something that surprises you? In discussion with others, you might be drawn to new, unusual and bold goals. Why not? Life is short — and fat.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A discussion with someone in a position of authority (parent, teacher, boss or a member of the police) might lead somewhere surprising. They might suggest something unexpected — or you might. The upshot will probably give you greater freedom of action. Perhaps also a chance to make things better?
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you can travel somewhere or get a change of scenery, this will please you because you want fresh adventure and stimulation in your life. You feel like Jack London: “I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than sleepy and permanent planet.”
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You want to use whatever influence you have over someone else’s wealth or anything that you share with someone else to make the world a better place. If you can do some fundraising for a worthy cause, this will please you. You don’t want to be restricted.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your interactions with partners and close friends will be upbeat, electric and different. Quite likely, someone will surprise you by doing or saying something you didn’t expect. Someone you know might also introduce you to someone “different.” Very stimulating!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): At work today, you want the freedom to do your own thing. “I am master of my fate!” You will grasp clever ideas very quickly and show others that you have a greater insight into the world around you. Oh yes, expect some heady approval from others. (Be mindful of your pet.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Because you want some adventure and fun today, do something different! This is the classic day for a blind date or an unexpected social occasion or surprise invitation somewhere. (Once again, parents should be vigilant about their kids to avoid mishaps.)
