Horoscopes: Sunday, July 31, 2016

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your deepest desire is to have the clarity to see how to live your situation for the best and highest good of all involved. Truly, all you want for yourself is to live in the way that lifts and supports the whole.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Small temptations are more addictive than they seem and should be avoided. The minor daily dalliance is far more destructive than the major indulgence that happens once in a blue moon.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you can't decide what to do, take yourself out of the hot seat. From the perspective of a calm mind it will be much easier to see what the next right thing is.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't skip the first step, which is identifying the problem correctly. It is a waste of time to chase solutions to the wrong problems or the problems that are not even yours.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Yes, there are times when the long view of years helps your perspective immensely, but today it's about the moments instead. So much to savor.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your dormant talents will spring forward to handle the task, as though the work has been given by someone who knows you better than you know yourself.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your plan is solid; now everything relies on the execution. Herculean efforts are not necessary. Consistent efforts will win out. Break it down.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Saying "yes" may be the only move you see that makes any sense to you, but it also happens to be the wise move that will feed your soul, fill your bank account and put you in a better position.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you enter the room, it's yours, at least for the next minute. That's the newcomer's advantage, and you'd be silly not to play it for all it;s worth.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Maybe there is no such thing as the perfect mate, but there are many wonderful individuals who want to spend time with you and will enhance your experience of life in one way or another.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll have a greater awareness of the mystical nature of daily life. There must be more to this existence than the eye can detect. Today begins a quest to see with more than your eyes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't have to assert social dominance in order to have it. Your confidence is quietly commanding.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 31). If this solar year were a movie, it would be categorized as an adventure, as a thrilling journey dominates the action. There's a love interest too. Relationships become more communicative and tender through the next six weeks. There are work challenges that are also opportunities to make more money in January. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 29, 7, 13 and 42.
