If Your Birthday is July 5
(The Day of the Showman) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Keep your interests local. It’s fine having far-flung pen pals, but you want your friends and love interests near you. That means an easy walk or drive, with frequent in-person meetings possible. Do business and spend your money locally as well, for maximum value, mutual benefit and prosperity. Keep your world small and simple, and you’ll be happier.
Written in the Planets
It’s a busy day, astrologically speaking. Overnight into this morning, Venus entered Gemini. Then late tonight into Thursday, Mercury enters Leo. On one level, this is an image of very social astrology. Additional aspects suggest you do your best to roll with unexpected events. In fact, if you have a bold new idea or an urge to do things differently, you may feel happiest if you give yourself the freedom to pursue it. Use your imagination to see the possibilities, and stay sensitive to the needs of others. That will likely serve the greater good better than if you get caught up in ambition, exaggeration or anything less than truthfulness to pursue your agenda.
Astrology can help you. In the right hands, astrology can provide you with a new perspective on your life. My readings are designed to help you consider all of your possibilities, your greatest potential, and to help you see your problems in a new light. I’m about to record the Cancer reading for you. If you order now, you’ll get the best pre-order price of $33. Shortly before publication, it’ll be $44 and then the final price will be $55. These readings condense 22 years of my counseling experience, nonstop reflection on the human condition and lots of excellent astrology. They are in plain talk, easy to follow, and paced gently. They are some of my best work; these readings are an invention. And you can have all the benefits. I plan to do this reading very soon — so get on board before the next two price increases. Here’s how to pre-order. If you’re seeking a private consultation, here’s that link.
