Leo, July 23-August 22, concentrating spirituality (fire)
It's a "love the one you're with" time of year. Eagles flying with doves and the biblical swords being beat into plowshares, that's your sunny-side-up prognostication. Because you are fixed (middle of season sign as is Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius), naturally you possess ability for self-reflection and inner control. You will need these traits over the next six weeks. Before you react, ascertain why others are challenging you. Sure, you are learning to integrate your individual self into shared, pleasurable relationships. You may not be able to prove the motives of someone else, but that does not keep you from speculation. It is in this speculation that shows concern for the connection. Chemistry and the allegedly elusive spark between folks can be created.
Sagittarius, November 22-December 21, adapting and learning spirituality (fire)
Great and lofty one, what may I tell you that you will heed? Lovable and condescending, you have the proverbial tiger by the tail. You tend toward having multiple suitors (in your mind's eye, anyway), but this time of year with bountiful Jupiter and magnetic Venus in Gemini (your seventh house of significant others), your tendencies have increased. Keep a watch on your growing ego. Humility is an even better aphrodisiac (well, not so much for the adolescent ones). Vanity can rear its ugly head in the subtlest of ways. Oh, come on now, you perfected the "it's not you, it's me" meme. Suppress a bit of your star worship because the successful are on the search for you.
Aries, March 20-April 19, initiating spirituality (fire)
Your uncharted territories include self-development and personal risk taking. Without your plucky and transgender mannerisms, we'd be stuck in an undeveloped and angry past where real men still didn't eat quiche and women knew nothing about cars. As forceful, direct and yang/masculine as an Aries woman can be, the men of your sign can have little problem with home economics. Even more male restrooms have baby-changing tables. With love goddess Venus and philosophical Jupiter in androgynous Gemini, it is increasingly important to speak about your experiences carefully. Balance your energies. Cease compartmentalizing or focusing on what had happened when you acted beyond what your gender supposedly demands. For sure, there's more to you than meets the eye. Realize, though, that yang/masculine expression is no excuse for cruelty. Neither is yin/feminine an excuse for elusiveness in order to "get more."
Three little words: Know your worth.
Virgo, August 23-September 22, adapting and learning earth (physical)
You know how your complacency can easily turn into self-judgment and, at its worst, self-loathing. The past eight months have been centered upon your ability to break yourself out of these unhealthy patterns. We'd all love you better when you learn to accept life's small imperfections. It is not, nor can it be, all about work. Serve, yes, but know when to stop. And then cease without the thoughts of what you should be doing. This weekend has been brought to you by the planets that want you to go on an adventure that breaks with the routines that have become your life. Reconnect with a friend from college or childhood. See how much you've evolved in their eyes.
Capricorn, December 22-January 20, initiating earth (physical)
You are coming up on your midyear birthday. After weeks of work, finally you can take a breath. See who is looking after your best interests. Sure, you have selfish ambitions, but you have noble ones, too. Oh, don't get coy with me; save that act for the Taurus and Libran. I know you. This time of year makes you think of what you "could" be doing, if you didn't hold yourself to being a slave to duty and obligation. End guilt now like Occupy Wall Street wants ... see how elusive guilt can be? What does Occupy Wall Street want? You get the point. More direct involvement from your heart, not from what you think we expect or should expect from you, makes the basic difference at your half-birthday. In six months, you'll be looking at what you've accomplished. In lieu of the financial bottom line, look at your interpersonal connections: Who can you call at 1 a.m. to help you bury that proverbial body?
