In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Planetary Outlook, Wednesday, July 22, 2009: Today the major aspect is the new moon accompanied by a lunar eclipse in Cancer. This affects everyone differently – but it affects everyone nonetheless. Many will be excessively emotional today so don’t be surprised if you break down crying or burst out laughing with little or no provocation. This evening, spend some time with your significant other, close friends, or family members around whom you can be yourself.
Today’s birthday: Bettys born this day will start anew this year as your birthday occurs on the New Moon. This is the year to make sweeping changes to your life, including getting a new job, buying a new home, or finding the perfect mate. You share your birthday with Selena Gomez, David Spade and Terrence Stamp.
Aries: Today is the time to start fresh and use an increase in your energy to build up your security and establish yourself. Clearing up old problems — in your relationships, especially — that have been neglected for far too long is the only way you can start anew. This afternoon, devise a strategy for addressing any problems that need to be solved. A cycle of potent creativity and expansive self-expression begins this evening, so take some time out to work on an artistic project if possible as well.
Taurus: Your career provides you with more satisfaction and enjoyment now than it ever has before. You’ve finally come into your own, and you deserve all the praise and attention that you are receiving! Just remember that you’ll need to keep working at it to maintain this level of success — and it may not be so easy to stay on top in your career and maintain a harmonious personal life. As long as you keep your priorities in mind you should have no problem balancing your professional and personal responsibilities now — and in the future.
Gemini: You’re a powerhouse today, Gemini! Channel that extra energy into accomplishing your goals at home: clean out the hall closet, the garage, or the extra bedroom once and for all. Enlist the assistance of family members, close friends, or your special someone if you need help to get the job done. Tonight reward yourself by going out for a night on the town — and spare no expense!
Cancer: Concentrate on your professional goals for the next few days; you need to figure out exactly where you’re going and what you need to do to get there. Retreat to a natural setting when you need time alone to contemplate your next move this afternoon. This evening, networking will enable you to make some important new contacts — so attend that party or social function you would usually blow off – you’ll be especially charismatic and uncharacteristically outgoing all night long, making it a great time to meet new people.
Leo: This morning your vibe is serious and you’ll be very reflective. Contemplate your deepest emotions and get in touch with your feelings. If insecurities about a current romance are bothering you, talk it out with a trusted friend. You may decide to experiment with the occult by consulting an astrologer or tarot card reader for further insight into your future. Make it a group activity and take some friends along!
Virgo: Virgos crave romance, fun, and leisure today. No need to be uptight about it, kick back and have a good time — if you can. A creative roadblock is finally cleared this afternoon, so you’ll be able to make some major progress on a creative project for the first time in weeks. Reward yourself by going all out this evening. Invite some friends over to your house; hosting an impromptu party will be a lot of fun.
Libra: You’ll be busy balancing your career and a romance today. Early in the day, tension with a family member may bring on a bout of insecurity. If you can manage to keep your internal issues under wraps this afternoon, though, it is possible that you’ll enjoy interacting with others at work. Some positive feedback you receive this evening from a coworker about a project you are managing boosts your confidence in your work — and in yourself.
Scorpio: One enviable characteristic of Scorpions is your ability to perform exceptionally well under pressure. It seems as though a little stress actually improves your dedication to whatever goal you’ve set out to achieve. When the odds are stacked against you, you fight back with even more vigor and determination. Recently, challenges from your domestic environment have caused you considerable anguish; you may find it impossible to maintain peace-of-mind. However, you’ll still manage to accomplish a major professional feat, for which you’ll be recognized, perhaps formally, this evening. Enjoy the attention and praise, you deserve it!
Sagittarius: A sober, calm attitude provides you with the balance you need to make good decisions this morning when the pressure is on. Take the time to think things through; don’t let anyone stress you out and make a choice you aren’t completely sure about. Later in the evening, around dinner time, a burst of energy will liven things up. Spend time with that special someone enjoying your favorite activity; attending a concert, a gallery opening, or a movie — it’s sure to be relaxing and lots of fun.
Capricorn: You’ll enjoy heightened self-confidence today as well as a heightened ability to articulate your feelings and thoughts. Don’t be afraid to be aggressive in going after what you want professionally. It is time for building up and solidifying important plans. The chaotic day of upheaval and excitement ends with matters of the home and heart on your mind. Enjoy the attention of loved ones this evening during a family gathering over a sumptuous meal.
Aquarius: Creative pursuits, children, and romance bring you pleasure today and for the weekend ahead. You usually use your weekends as a time to attend to personal errands and household chores, however, you should treat yourself to a couple of days off this time around. The energy is low today and for the next few days so if you’re exhausted, treat yourself to a well-deserved break. Tonight turn in early so you can be reenergized for the weekend.
Pisces: Pisceans are one of the most emotionally expressive signs of the zodiac, not hesitating to shed a tear at a romantic scene in a sitcom or laugh up a storm when you hear a funny joke. Recently, a torrent of emotions have been swirling under the surface, yearning to be released. You’re experiencing some of the most challenging times of your life, yet your emotional response seems to be delayed. Now is the time to vent all those feelings you’ve been holding in; it is very unhealthy for anyone, especially sensitive Pisceans, to ignore the profundity of their inner feelings.
