ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT:
Moon Alert: We have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You feel idealistic. You want to share what you have, especially the wealth you share with others. Therefore, if you’re dividing an inheritance or making an important decision, you want to be sure everything is fair to all parties concerned.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Although it’s been challenging dealing with others lately, today you have a better idea of where they’re coming from. You see what it’s like to walk a mile in their wedgies. This empathy, which is intelligent, can only improve your relationships, no matter how difficult.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re working hard now and you feel it to the point of exhaustion. Nevertheless, you have a deeper understanding of what is expected of you and a greater appreciation for how you fit into the picture. This makes you less demanding and more easygoing.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your concerns about children or romantic partners are genuine. You want things to be easier for the people you love. You’re willing to make sacrifices on their behalf. Sometimes this can help — but often, they are the only ones who can help themselves.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): As you continue to feel settled at home after changes or major repairs, your thoughts turn to family members. You want to help. Remember: True generosity is giving what is needed. Ask yourself — what do they need?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ve been juggling ideas lately about residential moves or job changes. Now you want whatever changes to enrich your life at a more meaningful level and, possibly, help those who are close to you as well.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): As you ponder your finances, you feel concerned about loved ones. Because of this, if you can arrive at some kind of arrangement where you benefit others, and it’s not too much skin off your nose, you will do this.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Because you’re on a new path, you wonder where you will live, what you’ll do and even what your image should be in the world. But you’re also wondering about your inner values. How does the world see you? Who are you, really?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Because this is a time of letting go of what you have created in the last 15 years, it’s unnerving. Fortunately, if there was ever a sign ready to leap into the future — it’s you. But you want to make sure that whatever you do is fair to others as well.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You enjoy being helpful to your community because you believe in this role. You enjoy helping others and you enjoy being indispensable. But somehow, there has to be a balance that is fair to you. It’s time to think about how you can meet the needs of others and, at the same time, not sell out.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is the time when you are proud of your achievements and feel that you have arrived. “Look Ma, no hands!” But you know that your own personal gratification or external success is one thing, and how much you can give back to others is another.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You sense this is a time of preparation in your life as you get ready for something a few years down the road. And while you want to invest in yourself, you know that you also have to be aware of how much others need you. Or to put it another way — what are their needs?
If JULY 19 is Your Birthday: Actor Benedict Cumberbatch (1976) shares your birthday today. You have a natural grace and style, which can be elegant. This can be evident both verbally and physically. You have high standards for yourself, which is why you are sometimes self-critical (and also sometimes critical of others). Personally, you have heroes you admire. This year major change could take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004-05.
