HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, July 5, 2012: This year your message is heard loud and clear. You have a way of penetrating others’ natural defenses and drawing strong reactions. If single, you will demand more from potential suitors than in the past, as you are capable of giving more. If attached, you start to change, and though your significant other might have an adverse reaction at first, it all works for the better. Aquarius seems as intense as you are, as they intellectualize a lot. A baby born today has a sun in Cancer and a moon in Aquarius all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • Be where people are, whether it is at a baseball game, an organization or a fun restaurant. Those of you who must work today will relax with others, even grumpy bosses.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Whether you are entertaining or just enjoying yourself, you relax. An element of the unexpected allows you to flow in a new way and get past a problem.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Reach out for someone at a distance. You naturally make the right choice. A misunderstanding could be in the offing if you do not clarify or ask for clarification.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You could feel pushed to the max by someone. This person just likes you so much and wants you closer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You always do so much for others – why not kick back for a day and do for yourself? Curiosity might draw a friend or loved one forward; you seem to be MIA.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Others pace themselves, as they know they still have a lot to do. You will throw yourself into whatever project you need to finish.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Sometimes you just cannot resist. So don’t. Enjoy whatever or whoever is enticing you to become involved.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Slow down and take a break. When you are deep in thought, others often perceive you as slowing down. Make this time different, and let go of your thoughts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Sometimes others might consider you to be blunt. Today is a prime example. Others’ good moods will help pull you out of a difficult situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Curb a desire to indulge if ultimately it is going to be damaging in some way. You are so tightly wound that when you let go, your energy goes to the opposite extreme.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • You have reason to smile. News that heads in your direction could force you to regroup. Infuse more creativity into a project and your day-to-day life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • If you can, take some long-overdue personal time. You are known as a giver, and many people respond by taking.
