Horoscopes: Saturday, July 8, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In certain situations it can be quite risky to say what you think and share your beliefs. But you have ideals you hold dear - things you'll stand for and fall for. Today you're willing to take that risk.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't have to invent your whole game. Borrow some of it, too. Other people's knowledge will help you direct your relationships successfully.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Start where you are. This is different (and a million times more effective) than thinking from where you are. Thinking is good, but you need to make the start official with an action.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The last thing you want to be is that person who just doesn't feel complete without having all of the attention on them. If you have something to say, you'll say it. Otherwise, your mood is pretty quiet all day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are the landlord of your own head. Don't let others rent space there if they aren't going to be good tenants. your influences need to pay up. If they don't, kick them out of your head.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There will be no understanding without the benefit of multiple perspectives. The breakthrough will be induced by zooming way, way in then zooming way out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Is the silence half empty or half full? Probably it's much more than half full. In fact, the silence will overflow with meaning and answers if you're willing to let it stretch out, unbroken, for a long while.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). St. Ambrose said, "No one heals himself by wounding another." Of course, this was before organ donation was a viable medical technology. Today a small sacrifice will be made for the healing of all involved.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Language makes things happen quickly. Without the right words, today's task will be difficult to pull off. But if you know the right thing to say at the right time, it will be a snap.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Would you rather be successful or popular? you'll have to choose just one today, because the road to success will take so much focus there will be little time left for the social swirl.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're far too busy to grieve for what you don't have. You love and enjoy what you have. The more you use and appreciate it, the better things get for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). On a spiritual level, mistakes represent tuition paid. Just as it is in school, a paid tuition is only the minimum needed for entry. It's up to the student to learn the lesson.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 8). Your friendly nature pays off in the way of fortunate opportunities that occur because you dared to break the ice with a stranger. Financial highs come in September and March. Taurus and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 33, 39 and 15.
