HOROSCOPES: JULY 31, 2020
MOON ALERT: After 7 a.m., there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Capricorn.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Rico Rodriguez (1998) shares your birthday. You are reliable and conscientious and business-minded. You are successful in what you do. This year you will see that service to others, especially within your family, is important. This is why you must take care of yourself so that you are a strong resource for yourself and others. Look around you and invest in the relationships that you value. Hang out with quality people.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Details about your most intimate and personal life are on public display. (Yikes!) Let’s hope you have nothing to hide. (Who am I kidding? Everyone has something to hide.) Guard against public arguments or outbursts that you might regret.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You need to get outta Dodge! If you can’t travel, then you will have to take a mental journey and escape through books, film or television. Basically, you crave more excitement and stimulation in your life!
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Your emotional experiences are more intense than usual. This is why you might attract intense or powerful people to you. This might have something to do with property or shared belongings about which you feel possessive. “My precious!”
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Today the moon is opposite your sign, which turns your focus to your most personal relationships. If you have a conflict with one of these people, it will be more emotional. Guard against knee-jerk reactions.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Despite your desire to get credit for your efforts, you will have to be self-denying and put the needs or wants of someone else before your own. “It’s a joy to labor for those you love.” (Perhaps you can think of it in these terms?)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a playful, fun-loving day! Romance will be important. You will enjoy playful activities with kids. However, the bottom line is that you want to be free to be yourself and do what you want to do with no restrictions from others.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you can enjoy the privacy of where you live, this will please you because you need to escape from the demands and the busyness of your external world. You might do some serious thinking about your habits and the way you deal with others. (There’s always room for improvement.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When talking to others today, you will trust your hunches and respond to a gut level of communication. You don’t want to spend much time in superficial chitchat about the weather. You want to get right down to the nitty-gritty of things — something real. (“How’s your sex life?)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Because it’s easy for you to identify with what you own today, you might not want to lend something to someone. You have a strong attachment to your stuff. Likewise, you might be attached to your values and find that you’re defending yourself to someone, when there is really nothing at stake.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The moon is in your sign today, which occurs for about two days every month, and when it does, it will make you more emotional than usual. Factoid. This is why you feel more sensitive to the feelings and moods of others around you. It’s also why you need more nurturing. (“I need a hug.”)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Solitude in beautiful surroundings will appeal to you today because you have a desire to seek out privacy and relax with more peace and quiet in your life. This desire to withdraw does not mean you’re being antisocial. You need to communicate with your inner world.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Your emotional contact with friends and members of groups will be important to you today. In fact, you might feel protective about a friend and ready to support them or defend them. This is a good day to think about your life goals.
