In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Monday, July 20, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Monday, July 20, 2009 : Today many will be at odds with others or even with themselves, with a major moon Pluto opposition early in the morning. Changes that need to be made, that some have been putting off, will have to be made this coming week – whether they like it or not. The moon’s entry into Cancer puts the accent on the homes, domestic affairs, real estate transactions, and maternal responsibilities. This evening, Mercury and Mars provide an opportunity for some to forcefully get across a point they’ve been trying to make for some time.
Today’s birthday: Bettys born this day will be able to make major changes in their lives this year by focusing on what’s most important to them. Do some soul-searching and maybe even take some time out on your special day to make a list of all your goals and prioritize them according to what your desires and ambitions are – not anyone else’s! You share your birthday with Gisele Bundchen, Carlos Santana and Sir Edmund Hillary.
Cancer: The moon enters you Sun sign, Cancer, today, which marks your monthly lunar cycle high. This indicates that you will be more in touch with your needs and desires rather than focusing on those of everyone around you. As a natural nurturer, you Cancers often neglect yourself in order to tend to the needs of family and loved ones. Today, resolve to do something for yourself this week, however small.
Leo: Today you may have a blow out with your boss, perhaps because he expects too much from you or is placing too many demands on you. Although the job market may be a bit shaky right now, Leo is the one sign that can be advised to stand up for your rights – you are indispensible to whomever you work for. If you are being mistreated, now is the time to voice your discontent. Craft a diplomatic yet forceful e-mail to your boss or HR rep and let it be known that you won’t stand for this type of treatment – and you’ll see how quickly attitudes will change.
Virgo: Today Virgos will need to make some constructive changes in their homes lives. With the moon’s entry into Cancer, you have the ability to make important changes that help get your life back on track, and enable you to make a big difference to family and friends. You’ll be so much happier when you make these changes – whether that is a move to somewhere new or just changing the bedroom around – that everyone around you will notice the positive change.
Libra: Libras are a sign that needs harmony and peace to be happy. Today, you’ll arise with a nagging feeling that something just isn’t right, although it may take some thought and contemplation for you to figure out exactly what it is. Take the time out this evening to perhaps pour your heart out to your journal or diary and once you do, the problem will become crystal clear. You’ll be able to make constructive changes this week to remedy this discomfort and get you feeling balanced again.
Scorpio: Today you’ll arise feeling as though you can conquer the world. You have a natural ability to change and transform not everything (and everyone) around you, but also yourself. Today, Pluto inspires you to make a major commitment to self-transformation. As soon as you do, you’ll be pleasantly rewarded with an e-mail or phone call about an unexpected new work opportunity. This is exactly the news you needed right now; prepare mentally this week for an imminent major professional reward for your past hard work.
Sagittarius: You have a lot of trouble just focusing on one thing at a time, but today’s energy demand that you do. Pluto forces you to make some financial decisions that will increase your stability and security in the long run, but may require some sacrifices now. Despite your reluctance to give up your hobbies and activities that you enjoy so much, times are tight and everyone must make sacrifices. Doing so will show your family how much you care about them.
Capricorn: The moon enters Cancer today and partnerships may be your main priority. You may have a small argument with your special someone over breakfast this morning, especially when it comes to domestic matters. Try not to let that Capricorn temper out of control. Take the day to think things over and being the fair-minded person you are, if you are to blame, take the blame. And be sure to admit to your honey that you realize you were wrong and that you are going to make major changes in order to satisfy his needs.
Aquarius: Today something wrong you did in the past may resurface to haunt you today. The best thing to do is NOT to run away – no matter how much your natural Aquarian tendency tells you to do so – but to face up to whatever it is that confronts you. By clearing the air, you’ll enable many more good things to come to you in the future.
Pisces: This morning, you’ll be inspired to make some changes, most likely to your appearance, in order to boost your self-confidence. Got to the beauty parlor, but bring a friend along for a second opinion. And don’t do anything too drastic – Pisceans need gradual change, not drastic ones, in order to feel secure.
Aries: Today you’ll need to take a chill pill when you arise in a really bad mood. Don’t take your frustration and anger out on family or co-workers. Take a deep breath and count to ten before you say something you’ll regret later. This evening, Mercury and Mars enable you to vent feelings that have been bottled up inside for quite some time. You’ll feel much better once you do.
Taurus: This morning you’ll feel under a lot of pressure, especially when it comes to shared resources. If you feel your partner hasn’t been pulling his weight, it’s time to make your feelings known. As a Taurus, you sometimes have trouble voicing your opinion at the right time, mainly because you tend to let things build and build until you explode. Now is the right time, especially as Mars and Mercury take a favorable aspect this evening, to have a serious discussion with your significant other.
Gemini: You’ll be running around like a chicken with your head cut off today Gemini, which isn’t much different than most days; except for the fact that there is a possibility you could have a minor accident or make a wrong decision if you don’t force yourself to stop, take a deep breath and tackle one thing at a time. Sit down this evening and write out a list of priorities; you Geminis are the types that need to see your goals in black and white written out in order of priority in order to really focus on each task and give it the proper attention it deserves.
