*ARIES

Smooth sailing on the 9th, when you can show off your flashy personality, but then duty calls from the morning of the 14th through the 15th. Don’t put them off because the weekend beckons you to party hard. Take advantage, because public opinion regarding you hits you square in the head, and you will find extra work ahead for quite some time. Early Ram births particularly are in a tumult this period.

TAURUS

Connections are smooth. Whatever you say will carry a lot of weight in the court of public opinion. You will be beloved for what you say, and more importantly, what you do. Hidden secrets reveal your intentions quicker than you wanted, and that’s unsettling for the Bull, who likes to keep peace at all costs. On the 16th, your work environment is highlighted, and if you are the boss, spread the work around.

GEMINI

You are particularly popular around the home this forecast period. Loving Venus joins with workaholic Mars, so your output is well received, most particularly on the 14th and 15th. Got something to say? Pick the 13th, when a flashy presentation will be understood through the humor Gemini loves to impart. The 18th and 19th may are days to watch your tongue, as the Moon in Scorpio often stings, even unintentionally.

CANCER

Money-wise, you will undergo a nice stimulus on the 13th, and then you must pay attention the next several days if you really want the public to listen to your plans. Home life brings renewed energy and restructuring on the 16th and 17th. Overall, a show of temper will not bring the results you want. Trust your mate and don’t allow your famed moodiness to overshadow a positive message.

LEO

Your forecast begins with the Moon in your sign on the 13th, so if you are in a funk, take the day to think about you. Apply that energy toward finances on the 14th and 15th, and then have your say on the 16th and 17th, when you are aware of how important it is to keep a balanced viewpoint in all you say. It’s a sure bet that your love life receives needed attention from your mate on the 18th and 19th.

VIRGO

Oh, to be a Virgo on the 14th and 15th, when the Moon is in your sign, blending beautifully with Mars and Venus. You are the center of attention those days, and your skillful abilities shine. Those very traits come in handy on the 16th and 17th; you communicate so well that you are put in charge of a huge project that you know you can handle. Take the time to get to know others; they will listen attentively this week.

LIBRA

Let’s jump straight to the 16th and 17th, when the Moon in your sign makes you feel as if you have a big bulls-eye on your back. Changes happen so rapidly that you will feel like a leaf blowing in a hurricane. Don’t despair, as you are merely expressing your feeling to others, and they don’t quite understand where you are coming from. Focus on the 18th and 19th, days when your focus is much better and you are a little steadier emotionally.

SCORPIO

If the job market is making you frustrated, you will have to hold on until the 18th and 19th, when the Moon is in your sign, allowing you to zero in on what the future holds. You will understand a little bit more prior to those days, if you are able to look past your ego and allow others to help you. Don’t get upset , or you will find that you need to rest longer than you thought.

SAGITTARIUS

You have a project that needs feeling. Strange that you, of all sign, would need that kind of advice, but your well-known bluntness can often sting, a fact that you will find out – in spades – on the 18th and 19th. While your ruling planet, bountiful Jupiter, is providing you with untold opportunities, be aware that they may be fleeting, so lock down your future before the next forecast begins.

CAPRICORN

Tell your side of the story with a flourish, something that the usually stoic Goat has a hard time doing. By showing a side of you that others probably never thought you had, you will advance further than you imagined. A change of residence is in the offing, but don’t worry, although you are in turmoil this particular period, money-wise, things are looking bright.

AQUARIUS

The 13th brings an opportunity that should not be confused with permanence. You are required to study all angles as thoroughly as you possibly can if you want to make a positive impact. Communications are spotty, and get even more so shortly after this forecast period. You will see how effective you are at getting your point across on the 16th and 17th, when travel opportunities present intriguing prospects.

PISCES

If your finances seem to be in an upheaval, don’t give up hope, but get ready for the big payoff now, not later. Make your presence known on the 14th and 15th, when the public suddenly understands where you are coming from. If you are trying to raise funds, do so on the 16th and 17th, when a balance sheet makes sense to your benefactors. And if you really want to drive your point home, there are no better days than the 17th and 18th.

CELEBRITY BIRTHDAY: Forest Whitaker – Born July 15, 1961

Forest Whitaker
Born with the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in showy Leo, Forest Whitaker brings a naturally dramatic flair to whatever role he undertakes.

It’s quite understandable, as Leo is the natural sign for actors. Add Jupiter in Aquarius – opposite his Leo Moon – and the American public has fallen in love automatically with this charismatic actor.

Mercury in Cancer, combined with his Sun, brings a sensitivity that Forest Whitaker innately understands, while Venus in Gemini triggers an insatiable eye for beauty – as well as plentiful opportunities for love. With Saturn in Capricorn – its ruling sign – Forest Whitaker is all business, and has an understanding on just how things operate in Hollywood, making him quite adept in manipulating things to go his way without offending others.

I mentioned earlier that Forest Whitaker is charismatic. That’s bolstered by dreamy Neptune in Scorpio, perhaps the most compelling sign in the zodiac. Neptune is in a “square” aspect to Uranus in Leo, bringing numerous offers for roles that demand a quirky take/character.

Neptune is in a positive aspect to his Sun, making Forest Whitaker so believable that he literally takes over a movie or television role with ease, a most necessary ingredient for success – no matter what area in life this man takes.
