July 31 – August 6, 2013
For All Signs: In June I wrote about a planetary pattern called a “kite” that is in the sky from May, 2013 through Sep. 2013. My original observation was that it represented an important pointer with regard to the environment, food, and water. Today as I write this (June 15), I want to create a PS to that article. It appears to me that this pointer also has to do with large groups of people with purpose. I see that it is a challenge this summer to accomplish very much without the assistance of helpers, others who share the same mission. The scale may range from many people to merely a few. It seems we all need the help of our friends this summer.
Aries: Plan to work and play alone early in the week. You likely will be feeling restless and generally tense. Your patience could be short and you might say things you'll wish you hadn't. You have a desire to break free from restraints and routine chores feel especially boring. Meanwhile, aspects favor any interests concerning property and gifts of value coming your way.
Taurus: It may be important to hold a “needy” person at bay. Or someone else may perceive you as the needy one and attempt to help you when you would rather not. A tactful “no, thank you,” should be adequate. Romantic and creative life is flowing well. Create with abandon and allow the developing piece a voice so it will tell you how it wants to grow.
Gemini: No matter your age, you may be ruminating on your next direction in life. The routine has become humdrum and disillusioning. Although the mood is temporary, you would be happy to take the first flight to Tahiti and never bat an eye over it. Short of that, you may be taking small mental breaks this week, with lots of daydreaming and drifting.
Cancer: Your warrior self is front and center during this period. The best use of this energy is on behalf of the Greater Good or another person who needs a champion. Use that energy with thoughtful intentionality. Your reflexes may be off kilter. Ground your adrenalin with heavy exercise and focus on your mission.
Leo: Aspects from your sign this week favor all of the following: travel, high-tech, the Internet, those from other cultures, church activities, the law, education, and publishing. Surprise and changeability (of the positive type) are qualities prominent during the week. Play and enjoy your days.
Virgo: Romance and creativity continue to be on your plate in a positive way. During this period you can readily make a necessary or decorative item out of that which appears to be nothing of value. You may choose to help someone in need, but don’t let those needs overwhelm your own. You need the time to focus on personal relationship(s) and play.
Libra: If you are one who offers a service for a living, your skills will be in high demand and your income will improve temporarily. Others are spreading the word about what you can accomplish. Kudos come from every direction. Your relationship life is smooth and supportive right now. Information comes to help you improve your health.
Scorpio: Drive and handle tools carefully early in the week. Exercise judiciously. You are likely to be edgy and irritable, thus making an accident of some kind more likely. It is possible that you have a cold or other malady that is causing you to feel out of sorts. As the week moves onward, you will feel better.
Sagittarius: Jupiter, your ruling planet is riding high with the Star named Alhena. This star offers social advancement and success. This position suggests gifts that come through your family or very close friends. Positive fortune may also come through shared resources, such as partner’s income, or even the IRS and Social Security.
Capricorn: Even though many things in your life are going well, just this week your forward motion is restrained. You must wait on someone else’s resources or support. If a loan is involved, the answer is not a flat “no.” However, it is held up by someone of a minor authority. Fretting won’t move things any faster. Find something productive to do with your waiting time.
Aquarius: You have experienced a vaguely irritable period throughout July. Fortunately this will improve in August. Things just haven’t felt “right” or settled to you and it is hard to identify this fussy feeling in words. The underlying issue has to do with resources that you share with others, investments, and/or taxes.
Pisces: There is an old saying: "Don't believe everything you think." Take this one to heart this week. Your feelings and thoughts may be only projections of what you want to think. You might identify a piece of information as a truth, when indeed, it is merely your opinion.
