TODAY: Events and developments during the next 2-3 weeks are intended to help you solidify your grasp on assorted situations. Btw: The best way to capitalize on these is by not being so wedded to already established (albeit not-terribly-efficient) arrangements that you lack the flexibility, agility, and imagination to recognize that you’re being blessed (not cursed!) and can get with the new program and reap its benefits.

YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your prospects (personal, professional, partnership) look particularly bright, and assorted events this year will bring you face to face with the most attractive of your myriad alternatives. To take advantage: Err on the side of dreaming the impossible dream and reaching for the unreachable star – and then going for it with all of the resources at your disposal – instead of staying on the sidelines wondering what-if.

Shared arrangements, especially those related to home, heart, commercial or creative set-ups are favored, as is conveying your vision to the involved parties in a language they can get behind. Why so? Venus and Neptune are thick as thieves, and you couldn’t ask for a better platform from whence to make your pitch.
Taurus Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Who are your true allies? Chieftainess Venus-Neptune has observed that on occasion you appear dedicated to hanging out with certain people whose ability to serve your interests or help you out is - while apparently clear to you - a lot less obvious to the rest of the world in general ... and the people who could really do the job in particular.
Gemini Tuesday, July 22, 2014
The theme, courtesy of the lovely Venus-Neptune accord, is the harder you work, the better you’ll do. Moreover, the fiercer you are about defending the faith, and advocating your artistic, creative, and romantic vision, the greater your reward. Also, psst: Chances are you didn’t get this far keeping your head down and playing to the lowest common denominator.

And here's an opportunity that you’ve been waiting ages for... Dreamy Neptune is in sync with harmony-loving Venus, creating a series of "no guts, no glory" moments for your delectations. So rather than spending another iota of mental energy on “but what if…?” take your latest invention out for a test spin and see if it works.
Leo Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Venus and Neptune are in accord, offering a chance to charm your way into (or out of) assorted arrangements. Btw: It will help to know what you want before sitting everybody down, passing out refreshments and initiating discussions. While people are happy to hear how you feel, they’d be happier still to discuss your plan.
Virgo Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Venus-Neptune highly recommends that you give a concept, scheme, or idea a shot. That said, Venus-Neptune is assuming that you’ve indeed done the research, and aren’t employing selective thinking, or promoting an “if pigs could fly” vanity project that you, your pocketbook, or the people in your orbit could survive quite well without.
Libra Tuesday, July 22, 2014
"Spoiled for choice" looks to be the (delightful!) situation with CEO Venus supporting Neptune. There could be several interesting alternatives for commercial, creative or financial growth as well as some (lovely!) public recognition for your diligent efforts. Your assignment: To better capitalize on this bounty, choose the projects that seem most likely to succeed or further your ambitions.
Scorpio Tuesday, July 22, 2014
As you know (even if you don’t publicize it all that frequently) you can be quite captivating and alluring when you make the effort. And with security-conscious Venus linking up with intuitive Neptune, this would be an ideal moment to aim some attention in the direction of your creative and emotional affairs, or the objective du jour.
Sagittarius Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Ahem: It’s tough enough out there without setting yourself an impossible task (climb the North Face in two days) and then questioning your ability when you only make it to the foothills . Plus, if you’re not feeling particularly charitable towards yourself, it will be significantly harder to cultivate a charitable attitude or approach towards others.
Capricorn Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Somebody is genuinely attempting to help you sort through, parse or overcome a perennial issue - yet you appear to be treating them as though they've just strolled out of the tuberculosis ward. Just so you know, they aren’t trying to tell you that you’re wrong – merely there may be a more efficient way to achieve your ends.
Aquarius Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Ah, useful information. Thanks to Venus smiling and Neptune, there should be a veritable array of insights or clarity about a business, economic or health (mental, emotional, physical) situation. So listen up and take extensive notes: Some of this data can be most helpful in cracking a case, resolving a dilemma, completing in a puzzle, navigating a labyrinth…
Pisces Tuesday, July 22, 2014
You never know whither inspiration shall lead. Venus is getting along with instinctive King Neptune, and your sense of what you need to develop personally, intellectually, aesthetically, spiritually, or artistically is on target. So contemplate your “too good to be true” fantasies, whether of the cozy Victorian house in a college town, the sweeping multi-nation peace treaty, the most sanctuary-like new apartment, the flexible work schedule...
