Happy Birthday for Thursday, July 14, 2022:
You are a sensitive, caring and generous person who will help those in need. Although you appear lighthearted, privately you are a serious person. This year is the end of a nine-year cycle, which means it’s time to wrap up things and finish projects. Let go of whatever is holding you back. Take inventory.
(March 21-April 19)
Today you might be lost in daydreams and fantasies, which can be fun because it’s an escape from your everyday world. However, the real world still exists. Caution about making promises that you cannot keep. Tonight: Home and family.
(April 20-May 20)
Be careful of financial decisions, because things might not be as they appear. Today, wishful thinking will not necessarily make it so. Be extra cautious if shopping for luxurious, frivolous items, because you might regret these purchases later. Keep your receipts! Tonight: Clear communications.
(May 21-June 20)
Today you might give in to wishful fantasies when dealing with others, which can set up a situation where you will feel let down. We all have daydreams, but the reality of our daily world is something quite different. Furthermore, unexpressed expectations almost always lead to disappointment. Tonight: Organize your possessions.
(June 21-July 22)
Today you might seek escape from the responsibilities of your everyday world. We all have moments like this. Sometimes it’s possible to delay the inevitable, but generally, your life will run more smoothly if you are prepared for what is really going to happen. Tonight: You’re in charge.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
When relating to friends and groups today, make sure to keep your expectations on a realistic level. If you expect too much of others, invariably, you will be disappointed. Remember, we are all frail mortals doing our best to deal with our own reality. Tonight: Solitude.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Today it’s easy to misunderstand what a parent, boss or someone in authority might expect of you. Make no assumptions. Be clear with this person. Tell them what you think they want from you so that you’re both on the same page. Make sure you know what they expect from you. Tonight: Enjoy friends.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Be careful not to fall for grandiose ideas propagated by someone, especially if you have doubts. Many people say things that have no basis in reality. They say things that people want to hear even though these things have no bearing to the facts. If you think something fishy is going on, it is! Tonight: Show respect.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is a tricky day for discussions about shared property, insurance disputes or how to deal with an inheritance, because people are prone to wishful thinking today. This means they might refuse to see the real facts of the matter. Don’t be the Queen of Denial. Tonight: Explore!
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Although Venus is opposite your sign, which can promote warm relations with others, today, Neptune in the picture will cloud things and create confusion. Neptune can encourage manipulation and guilt. Don’t even go there. Value and respect your friends. Tonight: Check your finances.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
If people are going to help you with a project or your job, be grateful. If you think someone is doing a guilt trip on you, avoid them. Be straightforward and show your appreciation if someone helps you. Avoid sentimentality or insincerity. Tonight: Cooperate.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Because the Moon is in your sign today, you will feel stronger emotions about things. These feelings could relate to romantic relationships as well as matters connected with your kids or a social outing. Stay grounded and realistic. Tonight: Work.
(Feb. 19-March 20)
Because we have so much invested in our families, family life can be our greatest area of disappointment and misunderstandings. Today you might feel disappointed with a family member. Ask yourself if you told them what your expectations were. Tonight: Socialize.
