"Drop your facade, Gemini!"
July 26, 2004
ARIES (March 21 to April 20)
Love affairs abound during this cycle,
sweetie. You will enjoy being the object of so much attention, but you may
not dig being gossiped about. Foil them all by being up-front and
unapologetic about your liaisons. But consider turning the crowds away and
concentrating on a serious Virgo.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20)
Now that the Sun is firmly planted in your home
sector, it's time to beautify your surroundings and do some deep
meditation on what you need from your chosen family (and your other one,
too). Play house with a Leo, but be prepared to sign a lease sooner than
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)
The full moon on July 31 may spark you to take a
trip (preferably with a very spontaneous Aquarius) and actually experience
one of the adventures you keep dreaming about. Drop your overly cerebral
facade and join the rest of us on earth, honey.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22)
The Sun and Mercury are pushing all your
security buttons right now. You know it's time to have more solidity in your
life, so get cracking. Starting your own business is incredibly feasible now
if you do your homework. A Capricorn gives you excellent advice.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
Don't even think about giving any ultimatums
during this full-moon week, darling. Surprise everyone by being the
"aw-shucks" pussycat that you secretly imagine yourself to be. No
defensiveness. All humility and charm. A Sag won't be able to resist you.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Spend as much time with your friends as
you can. They're your connection to the real world, especially while so many
past lovers are popping up to freak you out. You've been slipping into
paranoia again. A Libra has the ability to make you hot and cool you down.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
This is a most unconventional time in
your life, Libra dear. The old ways no longer apply. Consider breaking new
ground in your career, and to hell with what the pundits say. In love, it's
still a good idea to keep your options open, especially where a confused
Cancer is involved.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
While the vibrant sun and your
passionate co-ruler Mars are transiting the top of your chart, it will
probably be impossible for you to keep your pants on, but you must try.
Sublimate your illicit desires into your work. In a few months time you'll
be glad you did. A Taurus is ready to do you now. Take a rain check.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21)
You are going through incredible
inner turmoil while Pluto transits your Sun, but few people seem to realize
it. It's time to confide in somebody, dear girl. A Gemini will understand.
Give yourself a much-needed vacation from all the hysteria.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Now that the planets have shifted
into the serious relationship sector of your chart, it's time to make some
decisions. Focus your attention on the one woman who really does it for you.
(A Pisces, I suspect.) If you're totally without prospects, go out tonight
with your goals set.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
The full moon in your sign on July 31
promises a career breakthrough and a romantic revelation. Yep, it's one of
those cycles where everything kicks into high gear at once. Your mission?
To hold it all together. An Aries will back you up.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Mercury is speeding forth in the daily
work sector of your chart, so take it easy on the sarcasm and inappropriate
remarks on the job. Professionalism counts for a lot now. In your love life,
you can afford to feel secure. A Scorpio likes you – really likes you.
