For all signs: Join us on a magical journey as
this column shares with you the progression of planetary energy for
your personal transformation. January began a process of breaking
old fear-based patterns and moving toward the life you want to create.
The energy of July and August will help you with the growth of your
new plan. During July begin with nurturing your idea and yourself.
Feel what it would be like to live the life of your dreams. Be aware
of the feelings that come up for you in every situation of your life.
You are responsible for keeping your own energy joyful and loving.
Sometimes the situation is not in your control to change, but you
can focus on what you are able to learn as you move through it.

Growth comes with an ebb and flow movement like the ocean. In August
begin sharing your goals with a circle of friends. Practice being
what you want to be by talking, dressing and acting "as if"
you are exactly where you want to be.
The following information applies in general for each sun sign.
The ascendant sign, if known, would give additional specific information.
For individual signs: (See the birth date period for each sun sign
^ Aries (March 21 - April 20) July
challenges you to get in touch with your feelings. Slow down and
allow this process. Practice becoming aware of an inner guidance
to point out new directions, rather than impulsively moving, just
for any new experience.
_ Taurus (April 21 - May 20) During
July you will have opportunity to learn to value and be grateful
for all the gifts that you are receiving. Give only what you can
lovingly give and be open for the Universe, not an individual,to
provide the return that is most important for your growth at this
` Gemini (May 21 - June 21) July
will challenge you to let yourself feel...without all your logical
defenses. Learn to check in with any physical reaction when attempting
to make a decision. You can be too easily led by others, then
vacillate, because you had not been clear about what was important
to you. Once you are clear about your path, August will be a very
a Cancer (June 22 - July 22) Finally,
you will be feeling like your life is moving. Remember the ebb
and flow process will continue, but the forward steps will be
more productive. Complete any unfinished business that could still
be an anchor.
b Leo(July 23 - August 22) Use July
to release any harsh feelings about yourself and others. Practice
looking at behaviors of others in terms of what emotional issues
may be behind their words and actions. Avoid taking things personally
and find joy in at least one little thing each day.
c Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgo will need to listen for potential new information needed
before moving forward. You are still in search mode. Keep gathering
and evaluating new concepts and be willing to let go of the beliefs
that are not serving you in finding happiness.
d Libra (September 23 - October 23)
July will teach you that it is not always your duty to fix things
for others. Keep a low profile and take care of some of your own
needs. August will be a better time to party with friends.
e Scorpio (October 24 - November
22) Practice being very clear about your personal values and be
careful that your relationships match or create balance. Looking
deeper during July will prevent possible discord in August.
f Sagittarius (November 23 - December
21) Be careful about pacing your activities during both months.
There will be a tendency to try to push yourself too fast and
too far. Rein yourself back and keep focused on your long-range
g Capricorn (December 22 - January
20) Like a turtle you can keep yourself isolated behind heavy
walls of protection. You can find a new sunny world about you,
if you use this time to learn to get more in touch with your feelings
and risk expressing them more.
h Aquarius (January 21 - February
18) While Leo is looking at not taking things so personally, you
will need to try to get more in touch with your own individual
needs. You are motivated by being of service, but too much adjustment
for the sake of others, takes away the joy you should be feeling.
i Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
June was a holding pattern while you tried to rethink some of
your many visions for a better world and better life. Accomplishment
was slow, but now you will be able to complete some projects.
Remember you will always have more going on than you can complete,
so enjoy your creativity and view life as a process of continued
