[LEO (July 23 to August 22) You are in a position to mediate effectively between two people or two groups. You have a sense of the big picture and can bring harmony to the fore. You are in high gear this week. You must use your wits and think quickly. You rather like this kind of stimulation, but use caution with the heavy foot.

[VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You have been cogitating over a decision concerning home, hearth, and family for quite some time. The time has come and you feel more confident about the solution. It appears to me that you have mulled as long as you need and it is now a good time to take action. Those in romantic relationships are ready now to get serious or let go.

[LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A fairly recent change in your home and family life is getting on your nerves. This is a week in which it particularly is bothersome. You may feel trapped in a situation in which the rules are not apparent, but more covert. Now is the time to say at least part of what is on your mind so that aggravations can be minimized.

[SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) There may be a minor skirmish with a partner or roommate over the sharing of resources. This is not the ultimate deal breaker and the moments of discomfort pass fairly quickly if your relationship is basically sound. Don’t turn the issue into a disaster.

[SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Think carefully about what is truly important to you now, at this time in your life. Don’t allow old habits or rules from the past to make your decision for you. If you do let that happen, you will truly resent the outcome. Rise above your circumstances to a level that can see beyond your ego and the situation becomes more workable.

[CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Read the lead paragraph carefully. One or more structures that you have built into your life are showing signs of crumbling. If you look straight at the problem you may be able to nip it before it becomes serious. Maybe that structure or plan actually needs to go. Perhaps it is impeding you from moving forward.

[AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) (Jan 19 — Feb 18) You are under considerable pressure to get things accomplished at this time. This could be a time that you decide to let go of the high pressure or its opposite: you may feel it is important enough to put more energy into it. If someone external or internal is pressuring you, consider whether the effort is worth the cost.

[PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You may feel as though you came from another planet this week. Communications may be misunderstood, snarled, or lost altogether. Compensate for this problem by concentrating on speaking the truth as you know it, and listening very carefully to what the other tells you. Then ask for confirmation.

[ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A new beginning from June of 2015 has come to a turning point. You may not even recognize it anymore because so much time has passed. This is the time to decide to pour significantly more energy into it or quietly let it slip back to the ethers. (Clue: It probably is in the arena of friends, siblings, or vehicles.)

[TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You are feeling restless and need to try something new. Commute by a different route or go somewhere you have never visited before. Take your partner on a hike. It is important to make note of these restless feelings and do something about them. Otherwise you can become hard to live with, even for yourself.

[GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You likely are studying carefully and preparing to make a big decision about your financial resources. Others might accuse you of overthinking the situation, but for you this is a serious matter that will have long term implications. You’ve thought this over for several months and are now ready to finalize the matter.

[CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You have likely been dealing with a decision concerning property or family issues. You have spent a few weeks in this process and now you have arrived at a conclusion. If it is a purchase or a sale, you have the cosmic green light. Whatever the decision, you have made a good choice for everyone concerned.
