Horoscopes: Sunday, July 9, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Letting go of the things you don't want will make you lighter, but not wiser. It's too easy. Let go of the things you're afraid to lose, however, and you'll be wiser, stronger and lighter all at once.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though the turbulence of life is a natural force that sometimes can't be avoided, it can be ridden out with varying degrees of grace. The trick is not to resist - and not to go limp, either. Remain flexible and aware.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Chasing isn't always the best way to catch things. There are plenty of things that can be caught by sitting still and pretty as a trap or by dancing like a lovely lure.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). What works for the mind will work for the body today, and the opposite will also be true. The way to health and well-being is in good communication with your body.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Responsive devotion is the call of the day. Your reaction will be swift, automatic and most telling. You may in fact be surprised by what or whom you are devoted to.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The planets revolve around the sun. The waters run to the sea. And you let the gravity of your own attractions pull you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you must err, do so on the sign of vigilance and responsibility. This is a time to weigh your words, remain consistent in your message and tone.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You need to express yourself, but you're not sure to whom. This is the choice that will hold sway over your destiny. When in doubt, tell it to the diary first. Discretion can be undone with a few words. The opposite cannot happen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What's next? That's a good question, but not one that leads to a lot of fun. To get the fullness and richness of your day, don't ask, "What's next?" Ask, "What's now?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Give individual attention. Though you may not be able to deliver what's needed for the glory of the team, you will be able to serve the very specific needs of individual members.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Things are unbalanced in your life now; it's true. Yet there is no need for an extreme move. The redistribution of energies will happen naturally.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It can be challenging and painful to get rid of ideas and designs that have been imprinted strongly on your mind. Both are possible, though, and the clarity may be worth it now.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 9). You are in hyper-creativity mode and will make something remarkable this month. Relationships get tighter through the next six weeks. A new definition of success is emerging. In September, you'll claim a different kind of goal. Libra and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 20, 28, 31 and 18.
