Horoscopes: Thursday, July 6, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Holding on makes a person strong, and so does letting go. It's a different muscle group. There is no decision to be made here, just grace to be claimed in whichever situation applies best.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When the facts don't match with what you thought they'd be, this presents a challenge. Many people deal with this by shoring up facts to match their preconceptions. Watch out for that.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have qualities that come from your cellular lineage and other qualities you picked up along the way. Then there's a part of you that can't be claimed at the cellular or psychological level. You'll act from that spiritual truth today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Actions have consequences and yet can seem to be inconsequential, too. Mostly it's a time-lapse issue. What feels like excruciating minutiae in real time will be meaningful work in retrospect.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you're going to have a dispute, define the terms of it - the narrower the better. There's little to be gained by taking people on with broadly different views, although you'll sharpen your arguments.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Time is supposed to prevent everything from happening at once, yet it may fall down on the job today. Your popularity surges, a hard thing to keep up with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Much will be asked of you: things you don't want to do, things you do want to do, things that fit both categories. Remember, there are more options than ones first presented to you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In the same way that a shoe sets the tone for an outfit, foundational beliefs and attitudes set the mood of this whole day. Just because a terrible old shoe fits doesn't mean you should still wear it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). While you make something (a plan, a picture, a bed, the sale), you're having an experience. Whatever the outcome, the experience will stand on its own merit if the endeavor is a worthy one.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What you once thought of as work now seems more like a form of prayer. That's not to say it's automatically easy. Praying can have its own difficulties, especially if you're new at it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). At times, the work laid before you seems absurd in a way that only you are seeing. This is made plain when you laugh and they don't, or you tilt your head at what they unquestionably accept.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be making room for the next generation to contribute, not because your turn is over, but because you appreciate the influence and realize the importance of staying ever fresh at every stage.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 6). You're so loved, but that's not even the best of it. The best part? You appreciate and receive the gift and pure energy of it. You'll acquire new tools and resources in August. You'll be put in charge of more people, and you'll contribute positively to others. Travel and winning sports teams will be the fun of 2018. Leo and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 3, 39, 14, and 25.
