In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Thursday, July 23, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Thursday, July 23, 2009: Today many challenges may arise when the moon goes up against both Neptune and Jupiter. Everyone needs to take their time and do what needs to be done in order of priority rather than fly off the handle when the pressure gets too great. The moon in Leo has everyone in a flamboyant and optimistic mindset this evening.
Today’s birthday: Bettys born this day need to bring their plans for the future down to reality if they want to accomplish their goals. Have patience and you will succeed at whatever you put your mind to. You share your birthday with Daniel Radcliffe, Woody Harrelson and Monica Lewinsky.
Leo: Today is a wonderful day of new beginnings, Leo. You have luck, optimism, as well as determination on your side right now, so take advantage of opportunities you stumble upon.

You’ll thankfully experience a great surge of energy and enthusiasm, especially for getting your routine in tip-top shape. Today is a great day for starting on a new project. This afternoon, you may have some difficulty getting group efforts together, but this could simply indicate that it’s time to work on your own. Focus on your own personal agenda and basically ignore what everyone else is doing right now.
Libra: Today you’ll need to balance anything that’s out of whack in your life as your Libran need for balance overwhelms you.

Work from home today for excellent results; you will be able to take advantage of a peaceful domestic environment in which you can really accomplish many of your goals.
Scorpio: Today you’re inspired to take a trip far away to distant lands you’ve never seen, even if it’s only in your imagination. The atmosphere makes you romantic as well as pleasure-seeking, so take the day off if you can and go do something crazy and wild! Call up a romantic tie for a spontaneous trip to the shore or even an interesting lecture at the local university. The key is that you need to stimulate both your intellectual sense as well as emotional side on this intense day.
Sagittarius: Today you’ll take a chance on your wildest dreams and schemes. Talk them through with a trusted partner and perhaps some new ideas can enter the mix.

Capricorn: Today you’ll need to definitely examine your motives honestly and come to terms with your inner feelings, which you can’t hold inside much longer. Balance your emotional commitments to a serious one-on-one partner with your responsibilities to yourself. If necessary, take more time out to be alone and think through important issues in your life.
Aquarius: This morning there is really nothing going on. Be prepared for some slight agitation in the afternoon, especially when it comes to your career.

Pisces: Today is a day when your ability to act and react spontaneously brings you wonderful results. Be on the lookout for unexpected correspondence this afternoon; it could actually be the bolt of good luck you’ve been secretly banking on. And this fortune may have to do with travel plans, higher education, or perhaps some publishing deal. Use your intuition when dealing with communication today, power plays this evening could call for your ability to discern illusion from reality.
Aries: This morning, all you hard-working Ariens will be motivated and energized, especially about getting things done at home. You can do a day’s work in an hour this morning if you put your mind to it. However, this afternoon you’ll have trouble expressing your feelings. Don’t stress out; the atmosphere will pass as soon as it came. Tonight, you’ll experience a surge of self-confidence and you are completely self-assured, making it the perfect time to socialize or spend time with your special someone.
Taurus: Today the focus is on the practical side of things. Whereas yesterday daydreaming was your best modus operandi, today is the day to take the next step. Visualize the concrete ways you can set your plan in motion. This combination is sure to get you on the road to accomplishment. However, there may be internal matters that need to be settled before you can actually commence a new project or way of life. Dig deep down in yourself and figure out exactly why you want to do what you are doing.
Gemini: This morning try to set aside a good hour or two to simply visualize your hopes for the future in a very serious way, and if you’re really charged up, write out a list of your aspirations. Gemini’s especially thrive on the written word, so such a simple activity could actually make a huge difference. The afternoon could bring some tension with a lover or someone you live with; forge ahead with your previous plans and don’t get sidetracked by petty differences.
Cancer: Now it’s time to indulge in some sensual pleasures. Time spent with a lover is blissful and inspirational. You may take some time out to ground your plans for the immediate future in some mundane way, for example, perhaps you’ll sit down and jot out a to-do list for the weeks ahead. That is a very good idea, because it cannot be stressed enough how much order and organization you need to really make the most of your amazing energy and dedication.
