HAPPY BIRTHDAY

July 13, 2014:

This year you will benefit from one or several important relationships. You will prefer to relate on a one-on-one level, even if the person is a business associate. You are able to take in a lot of information and naturally nurture others. If you are single, you could meet someone when dealing with a money matter. This person reads you clearly and likes to be with you. At times, he or she could be aloof. If you are attached, the two of you bond even more, as your special time as a couple increases in importance. You have an additional strength because of this closeness. AQUARIUS is always a good friend, even if they are aloof.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20)

This Week: Try not to be stubborn on Monday. If you succeed, the rest of the week might be quite delightful and easy.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20)

**** Reach out for a loved one or a friend at a distance who you rarely chat with. Once you reconnect, you are like two gabby girls catching up on news. Consider a trip in the near future to visit each other. Tonight: Let your imagination make the call.

This Week: Use Monday and Thursday for any creative projects or issues.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22)

This Week: Someone wants to pull in quite close. Make sure you want this person in your inner circle.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22)

*** You might want to slow down and get some extra R and R. You can only push so hard to achieve the interactions you would like. Relate directly to each individual right now. Not only will you like what is said better, the other person will feel more comfortable with you. Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday? Live it up.

This Week: Others actively seek you out. Don’t feel as if you must respond in a certain manner. Be willing to say no.

This Week: Dig into work and accomplish as much as you can or would like. You could be distracted midweek; your popularity interferes with your concentration.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

*** Stay anchored and don’t waffle when someone does the unexpected. Kick back and watch. A child or new friend needs extra time and attention. Saying yes at times like this will build a deeper bond, leaving lots of memories. Tonight: Naughty and nice.

This Week: Honor a change of pace. Make it OK to be a little frivolous.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This Week: You might feel pressured Monday, yet from Tuesday on, your ingenuity eliminates many problems.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

**** Don’t stand on ceremony with another person. Make a call and patch up a disagreement. You cannot always agree with each other. The situation is no different now, but you can respect each other’s views. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news.

This Week: Communicate your needs. Give others the space to respond.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

**** Fortunately, you are good with money and juggle different concerns well. Explain why you make the choices you do more often. A loved one or friend would love to understand your financial wisdom more. Tonight: Your wish is another person’s command.

This Week: Be aware of the cost of a project before you launch into it. You might think you know the financial implications, but might get a surprise on the way.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

***** You feel revived and vital. Touch base with a friend who might not be feeling up to snuff. Your call actually will help this person feel better. Communications are lively. You might have a mini-tiff with a child. Let it go. Tonight: Don’t allow another’s negativity to impact you. Be yourself.

This Week: Honor what is happening around you Monday. Stay responsive. Midweek, deal with your finances.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20)

*** You might not be willing to share what is ailing you. Someone you care about might want to share a secret, if you will keep it hush-hush. At this point in time, you will honor the request. Take some much-needed downtime. Snooze if you want. Tonight: Don’t push.

This Week: You come into your own on Tuesday. Use Tuesday on to the max, as others will be more responsive.
