Horoscope for the Week of July 18, 2004

18 July 2004

Tip of the Week:

Festival season is here and the planets are aligning to make this year very memorable indeed! With Mercury and Mars and soon the Sun in playful, proud and dramatic Leo, we have some key ingredients for some real entertainment.

Sensual Venus is in flirtatious Gemini adding the spice of variety to the mix. These planetary placements alone support the precious weather we long for all year so make the best of it and enjoy the hot licks and kisses of the summer sun. The bigger picture reveals more sober realities, changes and challenges on a variety of fronts. Thus is the drama of life. Can we expect less from the binary code of creation with opposing polarities facing off at so many levels and in so many ways? The more we recognize that life is, has always been and will always be an ongoing drama, the more we can accept and embrace the undulating and spiraling flow. This is the message of the Sun, the Solar Logos, and the ruling planet for Leo.

Chaos and control is a polarity pair that, like all other polarities, meet and move to find the golden mean where each earns the appreciation and respect they deserve. That is the nature of polarizing forces: opposite yet equal. Another polarity pair is destiny and free will and yet another is probability and possibility. Between these apparent rival pairs is the "point of indeterminacy". This is where the mystery and magic of life enter the spotlight. To enjoy them to the fullest, do your best to be fully here and now and celebrate the life that is dancing in the parks and streets, playfully!

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

The real signs of summer are finally here and your planets are lining up to have some fun. This may include sporting activities of one kind or another and travel. Whether by intention or default, the flow of activities will be full of variety and you will like it that way. Avoid taking on too much. Should insecurities bubble to the surface, acknowledge them, breathe deeply and follow through. Whatever happens, move on to the next activity along with the flow.

Taurus (Apr 21- May 20)

Realizing dreams, verses facing certain realities, is now in focus. You are a romantic and an artist at heart, yet possibly too perfectionist for your own good or for perpetuating harmony sometimes. That slow and demur style belies a very quick and tricky wit that even often catches you. Tending to securities includes income and more than one stream is the way you like it. Take time and make room, literally, for creative play and romance. Express yourself in full colour!

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

A good deal of activity close to home is keeping you busy these days. Amidst the drama, you are doing your best to keep things humorous, light and fun. Keeping an open mind about things, listening and willing to learn will help keep the balance. Make efforts to avoid dwelling on the past, even for sentimental reasons. You and your family and friends are creating history now. Forget about how things were and tune in to how they are now. Avoid assuming things.

Perhaps more independence and self-sufficiency is on the list. What does this mean and look like to you?
