Note to Readers: From time to time I stand in for other horoscope writers. Today and tomorrow I’ve written daily horoscopes Yahoo Australia, standing in for Yasmin Boland. I’ve got a new blog post on Jupiter in Cancer and Mercury stationing retrograde as well. I’ll see you Tuesday morning with another daily horoscope and Planet Waves FM on Tuesday evening. Inner Space monthly for July will run either later in the week, or early next week. I plan to have the Cancer birthday, rising sign and Moon sign reading within a day or two. The pre-order discount is still in effect. — efc
Aries (March 20-April 19) — You have the confidence to achieve great things. But you might be experiencing it as something else, such as not wanting to leave the house, or being worried that you’ll get in trouble for expressing any originality or leadership. If you’re hesitating, think of it as a veil thrown over your strength. Pull it back and see what’s there.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — You may have the feeling that it’s imperative that you work out your old insecurities. Yet at a certain point that’s no longer an abstract concept. It’s necessary to jump in the water with the full knowledge that you’ll get wet. It’s more fun than standing at the edge of the pool knowing how good it will feel to swim, yet wondering what to do.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — This is the time to get serious about money. What I suggest you remember as you do so is that one’s attitude toward money mirrors the matter of having authority within your own life. If you want to get clear about your finances, it’s time to take charge of a number of related matters, including how you feel about yourself.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The dust may still be settling from this weekend’s Full Moon, which may have precipitated a falling out or leap into the unknown. What’s done is over, and your life is moving. Jupiter is about to move in your favor, and you can set your sights on a future that’s independent of your involvement with any one person. You’ve known that all along — so be grateful that you’re free.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — You may be feeling emotionally sensitive yet unsure why or what to do about it. Let the questions stand, be with your feelings, and see what you discover today. There’s really something that you’re working out, though the process is happening under the surface of your consciousness. It’ll be obvious soon enough what was troubling you — and that you’ve actually resolved it.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Over the next few days you may start to feel like you’re a magnet for attention but that others focusing on you is the last thing you want. Humor these people along; humor yourself along. Attention won’t get in the way of your introspection. Plus there’s an excellent chance you’ll meet someone who is asking the same kinds of inner questions that you are.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You can accomplish great things, but not if you’re dragging around any resentments about what has happened in the past. Most of those may involve how others said you were supposed to respond, and you don’t need those either. You are being called on a new mission. Stand up and face the future with passion and optimism.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — You keep arriving at the same place month after month, trying to work out a question that’s weighing on your mind. I don’t think that’s where the questions resides, however. This is a matter of how you feel about something, and this you already know. Once you get a handle on that, how to respond to the situation will be obvious.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — You have reasons to trust, and reasons not to trust. I suggest you go over them carefully and determine which are more coherent. You might also ask yourself where those reasons came from, and whose position they argue for. Once you sort this out, you will see that side of this seeming debate makes more sense than the other.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Just when you figure out that you have nothing to lose you’ll discover that you have only to gain. Any solitude that you encounter is an invitation to be open to the presence and influence of others. Right now you’re like an empty cup waiting to be filled. Remember that if you feel like you’re the only person in the universe.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you’ve been struggling with questions of your purpose or what to do for ‘right livelihood’, you may have some guidance sooner than you think. The solution to this puzzle involves sharing with the world what you actually have to offer — the best of what you have, in fact. On this particular topic there is no room for compromise.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — For the past few weeks or even longer, you’ve felt like you were hanging on by a thread. If you look back, though, you’ll notice that there was just enough of what you needed, and just enough time to get things done. Yet that sensation was a real feeling — and experience of abundance, safety and the freedom to take risks will be, too.
