HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, July 25, 2011: This year, an aura of confusion surrounds communication. You could be exhausted from having to clear up misunderstandings often. Learn techniques like echoing, confirming, etc. If single, your willingness to step up to the plate and assume responsibility catches someone’s eye this year. If attached, the two of you will need to make time for each other, as work or another responsibility demands so much of your time. Taurus can demand a lot. A baby born today, before 9:34 a.m. Pacific time, has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Taurus. After that time, the Moon will be in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • A conversation is inevitable. Talks could take interesting twists and turns. Clarify, if need be. Echo what you think you are hearing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Be careful with your spending. You could cause yourself a problem out of the blue. Confusion might surround a friendship.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You find your energy and seem to be on top of your game. You might not intend to cause confusion, but somehow you do it anyway.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Know when to pull back and do something totally new. The time to start a project isn’t now. Take in information, do research and ask yourself just how involved you want to be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Circle the wagons around a key goal or long-term desire. You are more in touch with your goals than you have been in a long time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Take a stand and be willing to lead others. Far more people respect you and your decisions than you thought. Try to clarify rather than stay on the same course.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Keep reaching out for more information. At some point, you might feel that all the facts are creating more confusion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Dialogue closely with partners or key associates. You’ll feel far more connected and understand where others are coming from.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others seek you out. The reasons might be all over the place, but the fact remains – you are needed and desired, and your opinions are respected.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Keep your nose to the grindstone. Clearly, an associate or someone in your day-to-day life could make a situation more confusing without intending to.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Your playful, creative personality emerges. You feel as if there is nothing you cannot handle. Lighten this person’s day and help him or her see life differently.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Understand that certain limits are self-imposed. In fact, some of you might not even think a thought that would take you past these long-term boundaries.
