Today’s birthday (Tuesday, July 11, 2017) This year you often are viewed as being private and preferring to relate on a one-on-one level. Whether you interact with an associate, a new friend or a long-time lover, the results are the same: an intense connection. If you are single, an important relationship could develop anytime, but it is especially likely after fall. If you are attached, the two of you often go off on special dates together. You love each other’s company. Aquarius accepts and understands your intuitive ability.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You know how to ramp up the enthusiasm of those around you. As you cheerlead your way through the day, you’ll know that you have supporters. Get some expert advice before making a major decision; you will be a lot happier if you do. Tonight: Where the action is.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ You know what you desire, and you’ll ask for just that. Others might respond to an idea differently from how you would. Dealing with finances could prove to be a bit touchy. Luckily, a discussion comes with a lot of mutual understanding. Tonight: Work late, play late.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ You could hear information that will have your hair standing on end. Fortunately, in this type of situation, you naturally detach until you feel that you have all the facts. Try to ask pertinent questions. A partner could be very somber. Tonight: Let your mind drift.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ One-on-one relating continues to jump from one important topic to another. Be more forward-thinking when handling a key situation. Look for a long-term solution. Take some time to wind down after work. Squeeze in some exercise. Tonight: Whatever makes you feel good.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Defer to others, as they seem more on target than usual. Your words will elicit a strong reaction from those around you. A child or loved one might not be as gleeful as usual. Let this person be; everyone has an off day from time to time. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ You might be somewhat tense about a matter surrounding your work or a community commitment. You will relax quickly after a discussion. The awareness that you can deal with whatever comes down the pike will soothe your nerves. Tonight: Know when to call it.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Your playfulness sometimes emerges as fun-loving, but other times it comes across as sarcasm. Others often are surprised by your choices. At the present moment, you are oozing with creativity. No matter how down you might feel, you will lighten up. Tonight: Leader of the gang.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Pressure seems to build from various areas of your life. Your sense of what will work seems to be right-on. Convincing others of that same fact could be challenging at best. Be willing to forge your own path. Ultimately, you will be much happier. Tonight: Opt for togetherness.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ Look at your priorities when making plans. Your sense of accomplishment is much higher than many others because they don’t have the same vision and ability to organize as you do. Your impression proves to be very important. Tonight: All smiles, as long as you don’t cocoon.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Lady Luck seems to help you through any issues that might come your way. A parent or older friend might present you with many different possibilities. You often choose not to share all of your thoughts, and today is no different. Tonight: Try not to burn the midnight oil.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ The Moon in your sign highlights you and your capabilities. Once you see the big picture, you’ll be able to make an informed decision. A meeting could prove to be unusually important. Make it OK to feel off and give yourself some space. Tonight: You are the leader.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Slowing down and assessing a personal matter is important. Remember that everything you are looking at comes from your perspective. Make it OK to share your thoughts with a confidant or someone whom you consider to be wiser than you. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep. 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.
