Horoscopes: Monday, July 3, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The word intrigue can have a positive connotation (fascination) or a negative connotation (dirty tricks and scheming). You're alluring. Be a benevolent keeper of the curiosity of others.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel like you need a certain item for practical reasons, yet the reasons are actually more sentimental or habitual. Sometimes, security blankets really do provide security, though.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Invest yourself in a program, and don't worry if it's the exact right one for you now. If it keeps you accountable to what you want to be accountable to, it's probably going to be good for you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't worry so much about finding the right person to spend time with. There are so many options. Try a few out. If you like them, go back for more. If not, move on. Socializing is simple.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just as casual social interest develops over synchronistic body language, conversation, and interests, long-term relationships depend on deep synchronicity of values, worldview, trust, and caring.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be worthwhile to make yourself a little more like those you're trying to influence, if only momentarily. People who feel comfortable and familiar with you are more likely to let you in.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even the most basic animal attraction is rooted in the mind. Confidence and magnetism count far more than an arrangement of exterior traits. You've already got the aesthetics nailed, so make sure your inner game is solid, too.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The people at the top set the tone. When you're not feeling calm and collected, dig deeper for it. Do it for the ones under you who will surely be affected by your level of composure.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll land in a sweet, elite arrangement. This has a little to do with luck, but a lot more to do with your attitude. You see problems as opportunities, so that's what they become.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do the important thing first (even though it will be a little bit boring). Once you get that out of the way, a rush of interesting options will fill the void.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you know someone well enough to sense how he or she is feeling, that's love. When you can also predict what's going to trigger those feelings, that's a love rare and true.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You want your love, but you don't need this person for your survival, well-being, or happiness. You are, in fact, extremely independent, and this puts a lot of fun and freedom into the relationship.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 3). Don't underestimate yourself. The limits others put on you are not your real limits. It will be pretty obvious when the real ones kick in, and you shouldn't stop until you know that feeling. There's a happy win this month and another random windfall in December. The charity you give will help along a miracle. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 20, 4, 45, and 32.
