Cosmic Attraction Secret
The magic of the universe isn’t created with smoke and mirrors, but with magnets. Attraction is the force that joins atoms and animates the spiraling universe. What are you attracted to? The moon joins with lucky Jupiter to help you discover the answer. Harnessing the energy of attraction will be the key to happiness and flow.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have a sense of where the hot spots are, and you’ll partake in the trend of the moment. Being in sync with your environment is a kind of cosmic fashion statement.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t want others to follow your path. That wouldn’t make sense; plus, it would come with too much responsibility. You’ll take great pleasure in encouraging others along their own path.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Let your social instincts take over. If you try too hard to cover all the bases and defend from every angle, you’ll waste time and exhaust your energy. Act on your loving intentions, and you can’t go wrong.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be aware of what you want. It’s not wrong or right to want it; it’s just good information. Refrain from self-judgment. Your wants will lead you to getting what you need.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Greed and covetousness ruin everything. But how can they be tempered? For the most part, people keep each other in check. When that isn’t happening, we must report to our higher nature.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If your life is an endless song, why would you keep from singing along? Resistance is not only futile; it’s not fun at all. Get into the groove, and let joyful noises escape your lips.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). However you feel about what you already have, you are only one thought away from feeling better about it. You don’t have to come up with this thought on your own. The beauty around you will inspire it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Much depends on the quality of empathy you are able to provide. Relating to others is the path of healing. As you form deep connections, you contribute to the evolution of the human spirit.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It may feel as though you have entered the gravitational pull of another person. Fascination is what will keep you in orbit around this sphere of influence. When you cease to be interested, you’ll pull free.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If it feels like there’s too much going on inside your head for your own good, focusing your energy on one task will quiet the racket up there. Worthy tasks include cleaning, clearing and organizing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll share fewer opinions and will find that you have fewer of them to share. This is the happy outcropping of peace of mind. Anyway, the world doesn’t need more opinions, only better ones.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The end isn’t always bitter. In fact, today you’ll experience an ending that is more like the closing scene of a family film — all neat resolution, smiles and swells of happy music.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 6). You’re sensitive to people’s differences, and you don’t assume things about people. You ask. Your savvy is to blame for the social and political power you gain. You know just what to do with it, too, as there’s a cause you’re driven to help. August and September bring financial growth. You’ll renovate or move in January. Taurus and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 33, 11 and 9.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “How many friends do I really need? I’m a Sagittarius. I have thousands of friends I haven’t met on social media, and my real-life contacts number about 200. Do you have a recommended number? I’m not one of those people who get depressed about other people’s status updates, but lately I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with trying to keep up with people. I get the nagging feeling I should be doing something else with my time.”
One survey recently determined that the magic number for Facebook friends is 354. Another number that might improve your mood is 0 — at least temporarily. Unplugging from virtual reality for a time will help you get back to reality reality. Sagittarius is a hands-on learner who loves to find out about the world through face-to-face experiences. Yours is the sign of travel, exploration and going to see for yourself. You trust what you experience first-hand. Too much digital clutter robs you of the time and energy you need to travel, get involved and show up in person. I dare you to use the Mars/Jupiter alignment this July 22 to unplug and plot a real-life adventure. The stars are on your side.
