Horoscope for the Week of July 11, 2004

11 July 2004

Tip of the Week:

As the heat of summer pushes the mercury higher and higher, we see the signs of the predictable rhythm of the seasons. With both Mercury and Mars now in Leo and the Sun soon to follow, the heat is on in many ways. Drama and excitement is in the air as summer festivals engage our attention and imagination.

What is increasingly becoming reality is the merging and melting of nationalities, cultures, races and creeds. What only a couple of decades or so ago was the exception, in terms of people from different backgrounds coming together, is now the norm. This trend will continue and is a clear indication of the Age of Aquarius. Sure, we can chalk it up to technology, transportation and communication, however these are all aspects of the sign of Aquarius. The multi nationals are growing bigger and eventually the borders will get thinner. Increased surveillance and border control is an indication of three steps forward and two steps back.

Further, the old guard operates on control and male dominant thinking while the emerging paradigm includes more balance between the genders as well as between peoples. The evolutionary curve will take a few centuries to really become smooth. Just as Astrology is an organic art and science that studies the rhythms of natural cycles, the Aquarian Age will naturally unfold leading the world toward the celebration of our common humanity and uniqueness as a species. May this evolutionary realization and process occur with the ecology and the welfare of the other species that share this planet as integral aspects of the journey!

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Balancing the urge for private, quiet time with fun in the summer sun continues. This may be the source of some moodiness. Taking short breaks from the action and power naps will prove helpful. Your friends are important to you and so too is home and family. Tending to the health of your overall lifestyle will pay-off. At deeper levels, you are experiencing initiations of one kind or another and this involves facing fears. Put health at the top of your priority list for success!

Taurus (Apr 21- May 20)

You are in the process of learning new perspectives about security. Creating balance in your life is ever important. Work and play, exercise and rest, excitement and stillness, contemplation and meditation, expressing talents and appreciating others, firm foundations and adventure are some pairs of balancing behaviors for you to consider. You can adapt this list to suit your individuality. In any case, intention verses reaction is the call now. Expand your perspectives of security with creative thinking.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

Clearing the old to make way for the new continues as a central theme. This may include possessions, attitudes, perceptions, habits and so on. Your challenge is to be flexible and to adjust to current realities. Setting clear boundaries and affirming what you need, especially to family members, is important. Intend to assert your feelings without aggression. How can you communicate so that significant others will hear you? The key formula is to know your priorities then ask those key players on your stage questions and be willing to listen fully. Empathize!

Cancer (Jun 21 Jul 21)

An energetic and pioneering mood continues. Creative self-expression includes designing and building. You want to do projects that will last a long time. Improvements of one kind or another are likely. Meeting new people and making friends and key contacts is part of the plot. Opportunities are knocking and you may be able to cover some 'lost' ground and perhaps pay-off any lingering debts. For best results, take a creative and playful approach.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

Spending private, quality time with family and friends is in the headlines again. Making room for extra dreamtime will be especially important this week. Ideally, you are breaking through stagnant patterns, especially with financial realities. With your sights set on the future and the big picture, you are building the confidence to break through limiting thought patterns. Making new friends and building upon existing relationships is the direction of the flow.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

You are on the eve of some noticeable returns and/or some liabilities. This may be the cause of some anxiety. Expanding your position in the world somehow is part of the plot. Education and travel are likely aspects. Challenging changes in relationships are finally getting a bit easier. Avoid dwelling on the past as doing so may jeopardize your health. Consider that destiny is at play; choose to play along without taking things personally. Avoid the pitfalls of blame and be open to psycho/spiritual tools that help you to access your inner strength.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21)

Yielding to sobering realities vies with a rebellious mood. This is a good combination for competitive sports. Alternatively, deepening commitments to spiritual realizations and practices requiring discipline are in focus. When the outer world begins to lack luster, it is time to look within. Concentrate your attention upon your heart center. This timeless practice will clear your mind, accent gratitude and awaken innocence. These are the attributes of true success!

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

Learning more about the paradoxical desires of unity and individuality is in focus. The key is to realize that both are necessary realities. Yielding to larger visions yet thinking independently can be complimentary. Pushing your views or having the beliefs of others forced on you will both create disharmony. Accept the fact that all concepts and intellectual formulations of truth are merely steps upon the path. Avoid letting interpretation create division. Silence can speak volumes.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)

The light is growing to illuminate the night. As you pass into, through and beyond uncertainties you are learning to be present wherever you are at any given moment. Thoughts about the past and the future are what cause many of our woes. Do not concern yourself with what others are thinking and doing. Focus on maintaining your center. See the beauty in the details and celebrate the uniqueness of each aspect of reality, especially nature. Reality is what you make of it.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

Taking new initiatives on relationship fronts continues in the spotlight. Improving upon the quality of your associations requires research. Learning to appreciate the needs and perspectives of others is a main theme. Your ability and determination to exercise willpower to break through habitual beliefs and perspectives will bring reward and recognition. Overconfidence in your position and/or that of others will cause problems. Take things one day at a time and work with the process.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

As the Aquarian age dawns we are dealing with the residue of the old era as well as the raw aspects of the new era. This applies to your personal life as well. At worst, you feel confused. Ideally, you are willing to nurture new attitudes, perspectives and self-concepts. Recognize that true authority is within and do not let the headlines sway you. Ambition for power and control over others may be the way of the world, but it comes with a high price. Your willingness to learn and refine skills will bring your success and peace combined.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Nurturing creative modes of self-expression continues. Restlessness, boredom and frustration may prove to be greater allies than you may realize. More energy and drive is available to see projects through to completion. However, be careful of taking on more than you can handle and intend to follow through on projects. Meanwhile, you are increasingly aware of the value and importance of cultivating close, personal relationships. Exercise constructive criticism and strategic thinking.
