For Tuesday, July 17
Those with birthdays today: You make a difference this year. Your smile, words and thoughtfulness draw many closer, and often attract new people as well. You will be the ever-social Moon Child. Your bright ideas and personality will not go unnoticed. If you are single, by this time next year, you'll wave goodbye to your present status - that is, if you so desire. If you are attached, you move into a dynamic, more creative period in which romance returns. Your sweetie is adorable. VIRGO wants to understand.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
¢¢¢¢ Your ability to help others when they might not be able to help themselves emerges. Though you might not always have the right solutions, you can help support people as they seek them out. Tonight: In the whirlwind of life.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
¢¢¢¢¢ You might have the best intentions, and perhaps so does someone else. It takes generosity of spirit to have them merge. A pointed question or two will help. Tonight: Let more affection in.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
¢¢¢¢ Investigate an investment that thrills you to death. You will need to have as many facts as possible. Your security might be more important than you realize. Understanding comes from experience. Tonight: Settle in.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
¢¢¢¢¢ Don't stand back or shut yourself out of a conversation. Sharing will become easier if you simply express one feeling at a time. Someone really would like to hear from you. This person cares. Tonight: Out and about.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
¢¢¢ Experiment a little, but not to the point of causing yourself trouble. If you want to play the gambler, go buy a lottery ticket rather than visit the casino. A conservative streak might make you much happier. Tonight: Buy that new item.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
¢¢¢¢¢ The Moon smiles on you, and as a result, you smile on everyone else. This type of exchange warms your heart. Realize you might have a lot to learn from a friend. Listen more often to this person's sharing. Tonight: As you wish.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
¢¢¢ Knowing when to back off could be instrumental. You might be overly sensitive and tuned in to others. You might believe a person means this or that, but he or she is not even thinking like that. Tonight: A much-needed timeout.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
¢¢¢¢¢ Sometimes you cannot believe how situations fall into place. You might feel as if you have a touch of magic on your team. Gather as much information as possible as you start looking at different possibilities. Tonight: Go for what you really want.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
¢¢¢ Don't be surprised if you are feeling an abnormal amount of tension. Someone has great expectations, and you might wonder if you can meet them. Use a partner's feedback to land what you want. Tonight: Count on being in demand.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
¢¢¢¢¢ You might want to rethink a situation and get more information. You might not be exactly sure what is appropriate. A partner certainly lets you know what he or she thinks. Listen, even if you disagree. Tonight: Let your mind wander.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
¢¢¢¢¢ Work with one specific person, and you will stay on top of your game. Understand that others want and need your total focus. Laugh and relax with a special person who is part of your life. Tonight: Work as a team.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
¢¢¢¢ You like what goes on and understand a lot more than you realize. Examine what works and listen to the many people in your life. Lighten up and enjoy the moment. Tonight: Sort through suggestions.
