Today’s birthday (Saturday, July 1, 2017) This year you value your domestic life even more, if that is possible. You are aware of a need you have to be more independent and a self-starter. If you are single, you will want a meaningful relationship; do not settle for less. If you are attached, you and your sweetie emphasize your domestic life together. You might even take cooking classes together, or remodel your home. Libra might unintentionally create a lot of friction.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Defer to others who seem to demand that they get the attention they desire. You might find a parent or boss to be very controlling and difficult. Maintain a sense of humor around touchy people; otherwise, you’ll see your frustration emerge. Tonight: Sort through invitations.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Honor a change of pace. You might not want to go out as much as you usually do. Be aware of your limitations when dealing with a loved one who wants a different outcome than you do, whether it is in choosing dinner or making plans. Tonight: A friend becomes more receptive.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Your sense of direction helps you decide who, what and where. You could be too tired to continue as you have been. Do yourself a favor and indulge in a nice, long nap; this is also your weekend. Stay on top of the moment. Tonight: Don’t cause yourself any trouble by flirting.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Spend all the time you want at your favorite place. Invite a friend or loved one over as you make a favorite meal or throw a party. Your effort to help make this person feel more comfortable is likely to pay off. Tonight: You make a memorable host or hostess!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You will want to slow down a little right now. Consider taking some much-needed personal time. Perhaps you pushed yourself too hard to achieve certain results this past week. At this point, you might feel the need for some extra R and R. Tonight: Where you want to be.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ Curb a tendency to overindulge in some way just because it is the weekend. Instead of going on autopilot, choose what you want to do and with whom. You and a close loved one naturally have a good time whenever you’re together. Tonight: Choose a favorite stress-buster.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You could be on cloud nine right now. If you don’t want to be pulled down from this euphoric mood, be sensitive to those around you. Refuse to indulge a controlling individual, and avoid a disagreement that someone starts just for fun. Tonight: Do only what you want to do.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Make it OK to choose your own company, even if someone else calls you a snob as a result. You also just might want to spend the next few days quietly with a trusted loved one. Don’t let anyone prevent you from doing what you want. Tonight: Keep a secret hush-hush!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ You might already have made a decision as to what you’d like to do, but another invitation is likely to come forward. Know that you can easily change your plans. You will need to be more sensitive to a loved one in order to keep the peace. Tonight: Where the crowds are.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Reach out to an older friend or family member. Spending more time with this person will mean more to him or her than you can imagine. Take off together for a movie or concert. Be sure to return any important calls later in the day. Tonight: Take the lead, and bring others together.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Defer to someone whom you care a lot about. This person might live many miles away, but you still can maintain a sense of closeness just from talking to him or her. A conversation on the phone will make you feel as if you have just seen each other. Tonight: Try out a new spot.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Deal with a loved one directly. You will have such a good time together that, if you can, you will arrange to spend the remainder of the day together. You have a lot of news to catch up on. Slow down and listen to what is being shared. Tonight: Out and about till the wee hours. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult. Readers can write Jacqueline Bigar at jacquelinebigar.com.
