Free Daily Horoscope - July 9 2016
● General: Your opinions are valid, but you had better not expect everyone to agree with them right now! So give up trying to change anyone's minds before you even get started, today -- everyone is feeling like sticking to their guns instead of opening their minds. Instead, you will make better use of your time if you channel your emotions into a creative pursuit like cooking, singing, or even shopping! Avoid banging your head against a wall with a bunch of folks who just don't get it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: New ideas make you want to get on the phone or send out emails. But don't broadcast the news just yet. If you need an emotional outlet, share with friends and family, but don't show your cards to colleagues.
● Finances: You've had a lot of time with kids and they've sucked their fair share of money out of you. You're more than ready for adult adventures. That is, if you still have the stamina or the cash for them.
● Love: When it comes your outlandish, singles lifestyle, press pause. The economy isn't exactly full steam ahead. Cut back on spending. Entertain at home instead of spending lots of time (and money) at the bar. Figure out your debt and start paying it down.
● General: When it comes to starting a new romance, you should err on the side of modesty right now. Instead of focusing exclusively on having a hot and sizzling affair with someone right off the bat, just be happy with the warm connection you have. Develop it slowly. Too much heat too early could just mean that you two will end up fizzling out faster. A slow burn will give both of you enough time to really appreciate your connection and build upon it in a respectful way.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You know right away when a colleague is on the wrong track. Speak up. You have the skills to communicate effectively without ruffling any feathers, at least for today.
● Finances: The way you make a living just doesn't make you feel glamorous. You need to constantly remind yourself that it's for the money. At least you have few opportunities to act pompous or haughty, and that's not the least of its benefits.
● Love: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. After all, there's a fine line between love and hate. Look to your past and find a person you shared a particularly tumultuous relationship with. The sparks flew for a reason -- maybe it's time to light this one up again!
● General: Someone close to you has been having some money issues, and it's naturally going to start affecting their social life. Your job is to be sensitive to the fact that they might not be able to do the things you used to do together. You can certainly offer to pay for them here and there, but that might only make them feel embarrassed -- so avoid doing that unless it's completely unavoidable. They don't need you reminding them of their situation. It's a good time to be grateful for what you have.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: A job is, in some ways, like losing weight. You can either eat less, exercise more or both. So if you want to get ahead, combine being tight with your money with working harder.
● Finances: Being intellectual has both advantages and disadvantages. Today you can't use your head to save your life, but that shouldn't leave you without a way to make decisions. Be light hearted for a change. Don't be too proud to flip a coin.
● Love: Verbosity begets nonsense, that's why it's a good time to practice brevity. Say as little as possible -- let the other person do most of the talking. Well strategized but sparse comments and questions will make you appear intelligent and refined -- a great combo if you're angling for the brainy types.
● General: Your intuitive feelings, while usually helpful in your decision-making, are actually going to be quite distracting today. Weird hunches or troublesome feelings will be keeping you from focusing on an important project that really needs your full attention. Your gut is worrying over one thing while your brain is struggling with something else, and the clash could become problematic if you don't get a handle on it early on today. Turn off your subconscious and just keep your mind focused.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You have enough energy for two. Too bad you don't have a double. As it is, you can only hope to burn off the excess in productive ways. Luckily for you, you have a lot of tasks to choose from.
● Finances: Things don't always get bigger and better and you're adult enough to accept that. But that doesn't mean you don't think you deserve more from the universe than you've been getting lately. That itch is right on the money. Use it to urge yourself on.
● Love: Sexual tension is an awesome thing, and it doesn't even involve going all the way. It's about touch and sight. If you notice someone staring you down, sidle up and give 'em a hip bump instead of saying hello. Keep it nonverbal as long as possible for an ultimately hot, hot, hot experience!
● General: The pressure of a deadline is bearing down on you today, but once again you are going to meet it without any problems at all! Other people will be amazed at how you skilled you are at finishing work that needs to be done in record time, and they'll probably want to know what your secret is. Of course, you don't have to tell them! You have pride in your abilities and some of the pride could be diluted if you gave away all your techniques. Keep your secrets.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You're as sensitive as the next person, but maintaining good will is more important to you than feeling slighted. Not so your colleagues. If you feel like you're walking on eggshells, you are.
● Finances: How to accomplish that big achievement of your dreams is a mystery to you but it shouldn't be. The way you make it to the peak is the same way you make it to the first level. Just don't stop doing what you already know how to do.
● Love: It's on tonight! The heat on this chilly winter evening is unmistakable. But protect yourself. Whether you're male or female, make sure you're well stocked with condoms. Don't do the deed otherwise. Your life depends on it.
● General: When you are in a group situation today, keep your curiosity under control -- it's not wise to go exploring with new people, or ask too-probing questions. While there's tons of interesting stuff you could uncover, you are more likely to ask the wrong thing of the wrong person. Wait for them to volunteer information instead. Right now, you need to stick with the people you came with in any social situation. You're there to have fun with them, so save meeting new people for some other time.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: The office suddenly feels brand new, and not in a good way. Whether it's a different combination of people, a vibe in the air or a change inside you, the best way to get comfortable is to spend time with colleagues.
● Finances: Don't be too rigid about how you see yourself getting ahead. There's no blueprint for how you should accomplish your goals. Whether you work on one at a time or throw so much at yourself you can hardly cope depends solely on what works for you.
● Love: Get ultra-tech savvy when it comes to dating. Put it all out there. Rely more on social networking tools and sites to infuse a little spontaneity into your social scene. Hook up on the fly and live it up like nobody else.
● General: This is not a good time to indulge in any expensive celebratory dinners or big nights out on the town. Not only could it drain your wallet way too much, it will probably fall short of your hopes -- the energy just isn't quite right for a big party, today, and your buddies are not able to get into the right mood right away. Skip all of your regular splurges and stay close to home right now, where there is harmony and plenty of free entertainment. Just turn on the television!
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: If you thrive on routine, you'll need to take a crash course in flexibility today. Nothing is safe from disruption, right down to the shortest conversation. Don't bother trying to make any progress.
● Finances: Keeping busy is important. If you don't have enough irons in the fire, then stay active in other ways. You want to avoid getting rusty even if what you're doing is not directly bringing in money. Not sure how to proceed? Use some creativity.
● Love: Physical contact is where it's at tonight. Find opportunities connect -- no, nothing threatening or overtly sexual. Throw your arm around that hottie or give 'em a shoulder nudge, and tell them how cute they are. Think short, frequent contact, and as the evening progresses, more intensity!
● General: Travel is at the top of your mind right now, especially travel to overseas destinations. But if this type of travel isn't exactly in your budget, simply use your creativity to feed your wanderlust. Pick up an epic novel that takes place in an exotic locale, rent a documentary movie about one of your 'must see' spots, or dine out at a restaurant that creates dishes from a far off place. You don't have to board an airplane to take yourself to new adventures!
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It's not a good day for deep conversations, even though you're feeling somewhat the intellectual. Harness your mental powers to accomplish your toughest goals.
● Finances: You're being hoodwinked, and you're the one doing the duping. You're kidding yourself if you believe your boss is more than a thorn in your side. The only real problem standing between you and financial success is your ego.
● Love: Your desire to talk over others nearly overpowers you. But, you must succumb to a greater force: sex or at least the desire to meet new faces. Hooking up means quieting that ever-moving mouth of yours. Ask lots of questions and listen; people love to talk about themselves.
● General: It's going to be fun and easy to stay in synch with other people today -- all of the people you are working with are right on the same page as you, feeling the same things and reaching for the same goals. This means you won't have to waste any energy being more flexible than you are willing to be. You can stick to your guns and stay on track. Just go do what you think is the right thing to do, and rest assured that everyone will be right alongside you, every step of the way.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: To say you're on different wavelengths is putting it mildly. The energy level of each and every one of your colleagues is different today. That could mean ideal conditions for getting work done.
● Finances: Devotion is overrated. If you don't like how you make a living, then start considering other options. Even in this economy, there are plenty of options open to you. Your dedication itself is something you can sell.
● Love: Intellectually, you're on fire today. So instead of drowning your brains in beer, head to a lecture, gallery opening or book signing and expand your vision. And don't hesitate to look around because someone, a kindred spirit, is looking at you.
● General: Today you just might discover that you share a common interest with one of the newer people in your social circle. This will be great news for the both of you, because it will give you each a new partner to pursue your interests with. This is a cause for celebration -- so the two of you should get together soon and do something special together. Do something that is lavish, fun and a little bit over the top. Their standing in your life is about to become a lot more important.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It goes without saying that when you're at work, you want to be somewhere else. But home isn't on your mind for a change. Wherever it is you'd rather be, it's not worth playing hooky.
● Finances: You're not easily taken in by illusions. When you get a prickly feeling on the back of your neck, that's all the information you need. Don't so much as share a postage stamp, let alone invest your money.
● Love: Fear of rejection is killing your game. Who care what others think? Whether you're a guy or a gal, if you want to be a player, live like a player. Ask for numbers! Here's the deal: you may be rejected a lot, but you'll also have the biggest collection of digits.
● General: If you are in need of some energy today, look no further than to one of your closest friends. Get it touch and see what is going on with them. If the news is bad, volunteer to pitch right in and help them sort things out -- you can help them fix some real problems quickly so that the two of you can get on with what you really want to do. Plus, solving their issues will inject you with a nice shot of confidence and give them a nice reminder of why you're one of their best friends.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You'd jump through hoops to get a certain task accomplished, but you don't have to act like a trained pony. You have to draw the line, and it's not easy. In fact, it's harder than the work itself.
● Finances: Day doesn't turn into night in the blinking of an eye. There is a longer or shorter evening before things go black. If you think things in your portfolio changed suddenly, you just missed the signs. Start paying attention to them.
● Love: It's official. You're grist in the rumor mill. Say it isn't so. Instead of seeking out the perpetrator, bashing their teeth in and slashing their tires, let it go. Whether the gossip is laced with truth or not, you're the better person by rising above it.
● General: You should know by now that relationships can go through phases, so if one of yours feels like it's entering an off time, don't panic. Either things between the two of you will get better again eventually, or it's time for you to part ways. Your feelings for this person are conflicted right now, so it's a good idea to get distance from them in order to figure it out. If you find yourself compromising whenever you are around them, then this time apart will be refreshing.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Of course you feel like you're performing when you're at work. Everyone does, in case you were wondering. Some are just more comfortable wearing a professional mask than you are.
● Finances: Distracting daydreams are the least of your worries today, but the skills you've acquired dealing with them come in handy. Staying focused means blocking out the drama swirling around you. Those who get caught up in it will lose out.
● Love: As an impossible situation at work careens out of control, everyone looks to you to stop it. You're always full of creative solutions to mend the deepest of emotional wounds. Don't sit back and wait for someone else to intervene. This one calls for quick action.
