Palm Springs Horoscope - July 2014
Summer social calendar ramps up
Entering Leo on July 16, Jupiter ramps up the social calendar. There will be more summer parties than last year — expect an overbooked schedule. Libra Mars demands that you use protocol to smooth over delicate conflicts of interest. This season promises to be productive, so put yourself out there.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)
After a period of withdrawal, you wet your toes in the pool of relationships. New friendships should be cultivated, especially where your time is valued. Realize the value that is placed on your talents. Be proud and set your rate card high. You are about to do some of your best work.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)
Saturn’s onerous influence is waning; make lighthearted semi-plans for an abundant future. You have until the holidays to clear away obstacles that waylay you. Next year proves delightful and expansive. Work hard now to make things right and 2015 will be a stellar year. As concerns evaporate, meditate often on the big picture.
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)
There must be at the least a strong verbal contract on an important project. Don’t be reticent to suggest terms. There is no free lunch, but a frank Dutch treat may solidify an alliance with immediate improvement. Realign alliances and drop the baggage. Just you is plenty enough.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)
A connection of long standing literally puts itself out to pasture. Success was sweet, but it is a different time. Letting go is bittersweet but expedient. A more suitable match is just around the corner. Remember that in order to create new matter, you must first provide the void. Be ready for a new reality.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21)
Saturn tests Scorpio eagles and stays strong through next spring. For Saturnine good luck, throw off “ballast.” The same as a sailing ship dumps cargo overboard to achieve lightness in a good wind, bravely delete that which takes up time or space but no longer serves. This struggle promises regeneration — a new life.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
When the Centaur comes upon a huge pile of manure, the reaction is, “There’s a pony here somewhere!” Maybe the material is a gift: Fertilize your life with its current manure, let the pony run to the far pasture, and spread the brown gold on a hungry crop. Appreciate the process.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
Focus energy on your image in the marketplace. What is your reputation for efficiency and harmony? Use a mental mirror to observe your habits and reactions. Flashes of inspiration will urge you to do it another way. Strive to be fair and even-handed. Avoid snap decisions and be cool.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
Pressing personnel issues can be eased with simple pop psychology. Reread (even skim) How to Win Friends and Influence People. Your leadership skills are usually effective, with one caveat: You must make them believe you are listening. Not as easy as it sounds, and others may feel that you condescend. The more questions you ask, the mightier your image.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)
You would do well to take a pause and tackle a domestic project. A vision of a more aesthetically pleasing and calming environment swirls in your subconscious. It shouldn’t be pricey, but it might require a little focus of energy. Painting, reorganizing, gardening, and cooking are good for the soul. Be creative.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Uranus in your sign makes you extra jumpy and impulsive. Don’t share ideas with those who slow you down; instead, open new doors with swift urgency. It’s a great time to set off alone on a new venture; you will need space for data collection. Blaze the trail.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Spring cleaning is late this year, but it’s just the right time for you. Empty spaces of excess, consciously leaving room for the new. Time in the kitchen or garden will restore the balance that you crave. Some around you are encased in seemingly addictive drama. Use a psychological analysis to understand, but don’t get involved.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Surrounded by high-energy, big picture types, you are enriched by the discourse. Consider these times as a fascinating lecture series where you can absorb new data quickly. Seek out a nurturing mentor with special actions that proclaim your appreciation. In this period of goal setting, be willing to do what it takes.
