HAPPY BIRTHDAY | July 16: This year you’ll want to get plenty of exercise to work through stress and minimize tension. Practice supporting yourself more often. If you are single, you could meet someone at work, at the bank or maybe even at the gym. You probably will meet this person sometime after summer. If you are attached, the two of you decide to participate in a new activity that will help you both relax. Aries proves to be provocative when brainstorming.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) An older friend or relative is likely to get under your skin. Pressure builds to establish more defined boundaries. You might not be able to get past an obstacle or some kind of resistance at the moment, but eventually you will.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You know that you are not getting the full story. Someone you care about pulls you away from a loved one who might be upset. Try to put a halt on this situation before it affects your relationship.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You finally could be letting loose and enjoying this part of the weekend. Your frustration might emerge when visiting with a friend who can be a bit rigid. The smart play is to postpone plans, especially if you feel your volatility easily emerging.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Accept an invitation to join others for brunch at a favorite spot. You might not believe how much fun you’ll have. You’ll probably want to make this type of event a regular happening.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You have the capacity to embrace very different scenes. Open up to an adventure that is exciting and new. As a result, your mind will be exposed to unique ideas.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Defer to someone who clearly wants to be in control. You will find that you are capable of adjusting to a provocative situation. One-on-one relating can be very satisfying because of your social skills.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Listen to what is being shared by a strong-willed partner. Recognize that this person is reflecting their own inner tension. Reach out to someone at a distance who is controversial yet always makes you laugh.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You could be on edge balancing a lot of different needs, including your own. Stay cool, and don’t lose your temper; otherwise, you will have others running away from you. A loved one also might be handling an issue regarding your joint finances.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You come up with unusual but relevant solutions. Are you willing to try one out? You actually could be delighted by the results. In any case, the willingness to take a risk and be open is what counts.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t get locked in to rigid thinking, which could be a liability for you. Be more willing to get involved in an activity with which you have little expertise. Remain open to experimentation. Take up a new hobby.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Make calls and see what your friends are up to. You might decide to join a loved one on a fun adventure, but perhaps you would prefer being in a group setting. What is wrong with trying to squeeze in both?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might have decided to treat a friend to a special day. Some of you will indulge your love of shopping, whereas others can be found at an amusement or water park. You will be over-the-moon happy when you finally get to do what you love.
