Today’s birthday (Saturday, July 8, 2017) This year you often debate the pros and cons of both sides of an argument. In some sense, this back and forth could make finding solutions easier, but many of you might not experience that if you are not openminded. If you are single, your desirability is not in question. Sometime after fall, you are likely to enter a period where you could meet The One. If you are attached, the two of you open up more to each other’s views. Your significant other might be more practical, whereas you often take an emotional approach. Capricorn opens the path to more logic.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Touch base with a loved one who demonstrates his or her caring, but who also often gives you an earful. You have a lot to gain by listening to this person, even if most of the time you disagree. You might want to back away from a heated situation. Tonight: A must appearance.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your imagination could kick in and make your work or a complicated situation easier. On the other hand, you might be creating unattainable and impractical goals. Try to add some realism if you do not want to be disappointed. Tonight: Out and about with favorite people.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) One-on-one relating takes you down a path where you’ll gain a better understanding of what is happening. Know that nothing at this moment is written in stone. Be willing to take a risk or two. As a result, your life will become more exciting. Tonight: With a favorite person.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Reach out to a loved one or several friends with whom you can really relax and be yourself. Conversations are full of fun, and they seem to involve a kind of intimacy that is possible only from knowing each other for years. Tonight: Celebrate the full moon.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) You might have a project going that is more important to you than you originally thought, so much so that it could be a distraction. A loved one will become frustrated trying to get your attention. Make a point of taking breaks, and return calls. Tonight: Do what pleases you.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to put your best foot forward with a close relative or dear friend. The two of you can have a great time together once you let down your defenses. Your inner child delights anyone who comes in contact with you. Tonight: Act as though there were no tomorrow.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your very social nature demands a lot of interaction with others. However, if you need to partake in an activity by yourself, today is perfect. Once you clear out your to-do list, others will surround you. So many invitations appear. Try to be realistic. Tonight: Stay close to home.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Others seek you out, and you will have many choices. The question is: What do you want to do? The opportunity to take a risk will appear, perhaps with a small push from a friend. Join loved ones at a favorite spot; you won’t believe what you hear. Tonight: Where you want to be.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) If you are maintaining a hectic pace, you must have a reason. You will accomplish a lot, and quickly at that, but remember that it is summertime — a time to be outside. Get out for a while, even if it’s just to walk along a creek or some other quiet spot. Tonight: Treat a pal to dinner.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today might present a hassle or two, but know that everything will work out just fine. You could find relationships to be particularly enticing. Use good sense, and honor your desires, and you will avoid problems and obstacles. Tonight: Join a friend, and live in the moment.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can accomplish a lot, but you have a tendency to stop, reflect and make careful decisions before taking action. You might spend part of the day with a dear friend who means a lot to you. This person often confides in you, and vice versa. Tonight: Happiest at home.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) You might have plans, but they are likely to be interrupted by friends and/or loved ones who want you to join them. Know that whatever you want to do takes priority. You just need to be clear so that your friends can go off and do what they want. Tonight: Run some errands.
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.
