Celebrity Birthday – July 2013

Harrison Ford (July 13, 1942)

CANCER June 21-July 22

Key Words in July: The winner’s circle. Now is not the month in which to be reclusive, hesitant or just plain moody. Now is the time to realize that July marks the start of your own personal New Year – and the launch of your personal efforts and endeavors. What you’ve researched, agonized about, and exhausted yourself over – is about to take tangible shape and become a living, breathing entity in your life. Yet, nothing extraordinary will happen without your input, enthusiasm and initiation. So, get on with it – now! SIDESTEP: a distrust of optimism.

 

ARIES March 21-April 20

Key Words in July: At the core. Late-breaking developments, and some interesting situations, now take place where you live and where you work. Several vital issues, particularly as they relate to your home base, are open for discussion. That’s good, because you have important things to deal with. Your personal life, however, may feel the weight of all this. Keep in mind that the word, "core" comes from Latin, meaning heart. So, in your heart – and in your words – find the ways to express your love to those close to you. SIDESTEP: an unwillingness to even try.

 

TAURUS April 21-May 20

Key Words in July: All forms of communications. Good calls, good e-mails and good text messages are all favorites of yours. Only this July, good incoming communications now include the significant answers and the remarkable solutions that you’ve been seeking for some time. Be selective, be quiet and be low-key – no confusion or hyperactive responses allowed. Just listen. Your own excellent intuition is alive, well and willing to supply the insights that you now need to move situations forward. It’s a fine month, indeed. SIDESTEP: total isolation. Stay in touch!

 

GEMINI May 21-June 20

Key Words in July: Simple arithmetic. If you are your alert and brilliant self, this July could prove to be a stunning month – financially. But, there can be no game-playing, no taking your time, no scattered thinking; certainly, no distractions. The goal is to clear your thoughts – and then focus on attracting new opportunities and/or a new plan of action. The result, of course, is an increase in income. This has been in the making for several weeks. All that’s required is your undivided attention – which is priceless. SIDESTEP: impatience, on your part.

 

LEO July 23-August 22

Key Words in July: Confidential matters. Comfortably included within this quiet sanctuary are all personal calls, private meetings and secret strategy-planning sessions. Know now that everything is in place for an entertaining and potentially profitable month. You just have to be on call – and ready to listen to all manner of ideas and concepts. Yours will be the final decision – but you’ll have to listen to everyone – before finalizing any important plans or launching any new strategies. That’s why you’re the one in charge! SIDESTEP: any advice that isn’t your own.

 

VIRGO August 23-September 22

Key Words in July: Your secret agenda. Getting what you want is never an easy undertaking. And unless it’s precisely what you want, you’re not interested in it. This applies to everything – simply everything – in your life. An odd concept, perhaps. But accurate. Now, step back mentally – and sort out that secret agenda of yours. List it. That’s right! Make a list of your desires, for it helps enormously to see what you really want. Know, too, that this is the time of the year to go after what you want. It’s just waiting for you. SIDESTEP: any pace that isn’t your own.

 

LIBRA September 23-October 22

Key Words in July: Top of the world. That is, your world, where your career and its advancement are of utmost importance to you. You’re an incredible partner and a remarkably good listener. However, in the deepest part of your heart (where you truly live), you’re privately absorbed with what’s occurring within your career this July. As always, you’ll forge ahead (keeping this to yourself). And watch, in secret, as those late-breaking developments now work to your advantage. It’s just your style. SIDESTEP: stern words. A bit of warmth will do wonders.

 

SCORPIO October 23-November 22

Key Words in July: Contacts, plans and projects. This applies, in its most subtle form, to everything that’s occurring for you – near and at a distance. And this is where your penetrating focus is right now. Keep it there – and on whatever you’ve recently taken an interest in. Here, the key word is interest. Allow yourself to delve into the inner lining of everything that’s new, old and ancient. This is exactly where you find the insight and the personal power to press on in ways that others find terrifying. SIDESTEP: a disregard for someone else’s feelings.

 

SAGITTARIUS November 23-December 21

Key Words in July: The magnificent cornucopia. The month of July is a wonderful and abundant place in which to find yourself. For here, revitalization, on all levels – mental, emotional, physical, financial and spiritual -  is at hand. Know this and do whatever is called for to advance situations, conditions and involvements. And with your superb intuition, you won’t have to look far for the best direction to go in. With gain and opportunity just waiting to stage an appearance, it’s absolutely perfect. SIDESTEP: a tendency to share facts and figures. This is confidential! 

 

CAPRICORN December 22-January 19

Key Words in July: The best possible agreement. If you’re anything, you’re the embodiment of ‘the best possible agreement.’ However, this month, that best possible agreement can take several unique forms. It can be written, e-mailed, sent in a text message, spoken – or just be a good promise that you’ve made to yourself. It can be short, long or written in ten words about something that seems insignificant. But that’s the point. To you, nothing, absolutely nothing, is insignificant. So, organize your thoughts and write! SIDESTEP: any tendency to slow down.

 

AQUARIUS January 20-February 18

Key Words in July: Work-related endeavors. It’s the month of July. And for other people, it’s vacation time. But not for you, as this is the month when your work, its content and its direction require your full attention and total involvement. And if you’re wise, you’ll supply it – plus, whatever else is called for. You’ve handled situations like this before. So, know that you’re gifted with the ability to devise ideas that work – once you acknowledge the fact that you must devise ideas that work. And do exactly that, now! SIDESTEP: being difficult, if not impossible, to find.

 

PISCES February 19-March 20

Key Words in July: Close ties and creativity. This part of your life is never easy. And given that you’re ruled by the planet, Neptune (insight and illusion), you wouldn’t dream of letting it be easy. Time now to let your love – whether it’s a person, place or project – just float. Keep in mind that you’re a water sign. And this month, the sun is going through Cancer, another water sign. Don’t be anxious or tense; you cannot lose your own. If it’s yours – person, place or project – it will be yours. Whatever the situation, just glide. SIDESTEP: doubt about your talent.
