Free Daily Horoscope - July 23 2016
● General: Your reputation is your top concern right now, but is such an obsessive focus keeping you from making deeper emotional connections with other people? It certainly can be difficult to balance your goals with your personal relationships, but you need to do it. You can master the art of being yourself and being there for others if you try. Luckily, you have an older relative who has some helpful insight. Talk to them today and see what they tell you to work on first.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Is using people to your advantage always bad? Not if they're part of your network. You may have an intense drive for success, but remember to scratch a few backs yourself every now and then.
● Finances: You have only a few days to achieve your goals. Minor ones, but goals nonetheless. You need to get yourself out of your totally disorganized state. Start by making lists and comparing them to your budget, and take things from there.
● Love: Wearing the appropriate clothing is a huge turn on to others right now. So if you're hiding your goods under ill-fitting garments, it's time to dress to impress. Know your true size and what works best for your body -- if you need help, ask a salesperson.
● General: The people you'll be dealing with today are a lot more grounded than you are right now, which could make you uncomfortable at first. It's tough to work with people who don't see things the way you see them. But if you just relax, you will slowly become much more grounded yourself! Reach out to the people who are always cool, calm and collected and they will reach right back. They can teach you how to see things as they really are, minus all the drama.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You may finally get the point of all these meetings. Someone will come out of one with a completely different perspective. In fact, it could be you. Be prepared for your mind to be blown.
● Finances: There's no reason to be torn between the traditional and the outrageous. There's room at the table for a bit of both. Some people may think your selections are weird, but that shouldn't deter you from trying them, money willing.
● Love: Sex -- or any other sexual activity -- is best done out of the confines of the bedroom. Mix it up. If you're in the mood for a quickie, try the couch, the kitchen counter -- even the floor. Or, host a massive make-out session in the car a la high school.
● General: More than ever, you are open to the unfamiliar today -- your quick mind is ready to sort through a confusing matter. You will figure out what to make of it. Go out early today and try to find something or someone to keep your brain humming. It's a great day to tackle a puzzle that's been driving you nuts. Or you might want to try (one more time) to get along with that difficult personality. You should challenge yourself today. No matter what the outcome is, you won't be disappointed.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: If only you were in charge, so many more things would get accomplished. It feels like you and your projects are being held back by others in your office. But learning to work within the system is your only option, so get started.
● Finances: You're feeling oddly open to a new point of view. Even long-held opinions of certain friends and family members are suddenly up in the air. You want to make the most of your new 'anything can happen' attitude. Try applying it to your portfolio.
● Love: The trick is telling people, especially those you're romantically interested in, what they want to hear. It's not about being fake, though. Keep it real. Discover their truly dazzling qualities and express your appreciation. They swoon over your observations.
● General: The clouds in your mind have been confusing you a lot lately, but today brings good news! The sun is coming out, and it will burn off that foggy thinking to show you exactly what you need to do! Someone or something will come into your life unexpectedly and provide you the light you need to understand a mystery that's been plaguing you. This is definitely an exciting development that is going to leave you feeling good -- and feeling back in charge of where your life is going.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Problems at work make you not even want to show up at the office. You could take the easy way out and do just that. Or you could swallow your pride and show colleagues exactly what you're made of.
● Finances: You've learned to be plenty flexible. But when it comes to certain things, you've just got to put your foot down. You've come to one of those things. It's not about money, it's about principle and family.
● Love: Sitting by the phone is not going to make it ring any faster. Instead of wasting precious time waiting for that jerk to call you back, do something productive. Get off your duff and leave the house. Turn off your gadgets for some unobstructed free time -- and enjoy it!
● General: Listen when that little voice in your head tells you to power through today -- and then take action! Work through lunch or stay late to finish up what you need to do. Any further postponement could leave you painted into a corner, with no options. You have some nice momentum right now, and you shouldn't let it go to waste. Sure, you might prefer taking it easy this afternoon, but you really shouldn't put things off any longer. You'll sleep better knowing you got everything done.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Apathy is downright unhealthy. Enthusiasm for your work makes a good impression, but it also makes you feel better about yourself. Drum up some excitement in whatever way you can.
● Finances: You're proving how adaptable you are just by doing something as simple as drafting a grocery list. You can put on a spread on a low budget -- but not without some serious forethought. Today's your day for just that.
● Love: You'll make a mistake today or in the near future -- but it'll be completely charming. Just remember that as you run for cover. Someone who's watching it unfold is enraptured. Don't stay in hiding for too long. Your biggest fan wants to meet you.
● General: Your formerly healthy ambition has been feeling a bit sickly lately, but when you get a little taste of power today you will finally start to feel robust and capable once again. You can see where you want things to go, and with a little patience you will see a path to take to get there. Your sense of who you are is going to continue to grow slowly but steadily, and you are already starting to see the rewards of being more self assured in your social life.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Hard work pays off in unexpected ways. You'll meet your next business partner or stumble across the next big idea. Whatever way it plays out, enjoy mopping the sweat off your brow.
● Finances: The hard work you put in today and the following two days is all for fun, and the results are spectacular. If only you could put the same kind of effort into making money, you'd be wealthy enough to retire early. Put some thought into what else gives you the same level of satisfaction.
● Love: It's all about your friends today. When's the last time you had a slumber party? Rent some of your favorite movies, eat lots of unhealthy food and spread the sleeping bags all over the floor. And don't forget to stay up super late, too. It's Saturday, after all!
● General: Being the odd one out can be an advantage, so don't get upset if someone calls you out and makes you feel weird for doing something you thought was the right thing to do. Whoever is trying to push your buttons simply doesn't know how to peg you or figure you out, and they are being lazy in trying to understand you. They're too busy following everyone else and doing the 'in' things to think independently like you do, but you shouldn't let their jealousy bug you.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You may have a new colleague or even a new boss. Whatever their position is, someone is making you long for the good old days. Don't give this feeling more than a minute of your time.
● Finances: You're preparing for a good time, but you have work to take care of yourself also. Make everything you have to do equally fun. If you can pull that off, you'll find making money noticeably easier from this moment forward.
● Love: Photos tell a lot about a person -- use your keen perceptive skills when perusing the Internet ads today. Laughter and fun are what you're after, so be leery of people who don't smile. If they can't express their personality in pictures, just think of what they'll be like in person: stuck-up city.
● General: You have everything you need to make your dreams come true today. You have the energy, and most importantly, you're getting the green light from those in power. Everyone and their brother has some advice they think you should hear, but you don't need instructions from people to know how to run your own life! Being a part of a community is important, but today you should realize that your first priority is to yourself. So go off on your own and leave all the advice behind.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Putting together the right team is an important part of implementing any plan. Once you learn to work well together, the sky's the limit, so make sure everyone gets along.
● Finances: Problems at home aren't as radical as you make them out to be. Your image of a happy, tranquil dinner around the table doesn't have to be shattered by this latest outburst. Spending even a little money on a sweet token gift may be all it takes to restore harmony.
● Love: The temptation to push the envelope is nearly overwhelming, but when it comes to your dating life, it spells disaster. Answer ads that seek someone like you. Wasting time or energy responding to out-of-your-league ads will just wreak havoc on your self-esteem.
● General: Rush around today and you could be cheating yourself out of some very pleasant experiences. Don't think that all of your errands are boring things you need to get out of the way in order to move on to more fun and relaxing things -- think of each of them as opportunities for adventure. So slow down and take your time. The dry cleaners, grocery store, or dental office might not usually be the most interesting place on earth, but today... who knows?
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: If you made your own lunch, you'll be tempted to chuck it for carry out. Stay focused on your financial goals and force yourself to eat out of the brown bag. Spice things up with good company.
● Finances: You just can't turn off your creativity. That could feel like a curse if you didn't enjoy it so thoroughly. You're making money in unusual ways while others are anticipating different kinds of satisfaction. You are on a completely different plane, and this impresses.
● Love: The notion that opposites attract but do not marry couldn't ring more right now. Good thing for you! A serious commitment is the farthest thing from your mind. So go all out. Date people you'd never considered before. Who knows? You may find your soul mate in the process.
● General: You are getting into the good graces of some very influential people right now. While this is great for your career prospects, it could also have a negative effect in terms of your personal relationships. You don't like to think that the people who want the best for you can get jealous, but they can -- and they are. Try to cool it when it comes to talking about the exciting things that are going on. Be sensitive to the fact that they can't totally relate to what you are living.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your high energy won't last forever. Make good use of it while you have it. Start by tackling your least interesting projects.
● Finances: You can save a lot of money without letting it be noticeable to anyone. Changing your MO ever so slightly would mean cutting corners just enough to squeak by. It's not a way to get rich, but it is a way to carry on as usual.
● Love: You're your own judge right now. If you're not living up to your own standards, you're the only one who'll suffer. Nobody else knows what's going on in that mind of yours. So now's a great time to great really honest. If you feel the stirrings of shame or remorse in your gut, change something.
● General: It's time for you to be a bit more frugal and put some stricter financial restrictions on yourself. Even if you feel like you are flush with cash right now, it would do you some good to tighten your belt. Pretend that you have less than you have, and you will end up being grateful for what you do have -- instead of always being hungry for more. Being content is a great gift, and it is one you can actually give yourself. All you have to do is adjust your goals and be happier with less -- for now.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Some people are simply not as productive as you are. Just why they waste their days is a mystery to you. You may be doing more than your fair share, but it beats flailing away all day long as colleagues do.
● Finances: Make sure you stop long enough to be thankful for your energy level. You're still going full speed ahead, even with a serious slowdown in sight. Your excitement is actually quite attractive. People around you feel better for it.
● Love: Intuition is huge -- listen to it. You're totally in harmony with the universe, so stray from your daily routine. Let go of the intuition and tune into your gut. You'll make life-changing discoveries along the way that will lead you to your soul mate.
● General: You'll be involved in a serious game of Follow the Leader today, and the good news is that you will be the leader! Everyone is eager to follow in your footsteps because they have led you to such great places -- make sure you don't go too fast for people to keep up. Get ready for some serious attention to cause a disruption in your private life. A few personal facts might become public knowledge, so if you have any secrets you need to hide, do what you need to do to keep them hidden.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Don't wait for a supervisor to point out the obvious. Face it, you need some help. That's what coworkers are for, so don't be ashamed to ask.
● Finances: Planning ahead is vexing you. Expecting others to cater your entire affair is unrealistic, but expecting them to pitch in is not. You can always use finances as your good excuse, although common courtesy should be all it takes to win the day.
● Love: It's time to step up to the plate and make some decisions. You've floated in the stream of life for so long, accepting where it takes you. But now, you've got to live with a purpose. Climb ashore and make some changes.
