Today’s I Ching Hexagram for July 30 is 23: Splitting Apart

23: Splitting Apart

Hexagram 23

General Meaning: All is not what it seems. Sometimes, reality is like a hall of mirrors. Intrigues multiply like summer flies, and there are signs of discontent all around. This is a time of illusion and disillusion, disintegration, distrust and deception.

When you find yourself trapped in a hall of mirrors, sometimes it is necessary to retrace your steps. Return to the familiar; take solace in what is firm and secure. There is no blame in holding back on progress now; indeed, it is your responsibility to keep your strength intact for the period of resurrection, which follows disintegration as surely as dawn follows the night.

Discretion is the better part of valor. Good timing is especially important. Learn to focus on the essence of the problem and choose the proper moments for action, thereby avoiding futile effort. Be particularly attentive at such a time as this for changes that signal it’s time to retreat.

In the realm of personal relations, disillusionment is generally painful and confusing. When in the midst of such a phase, it is wise to avoid undertaking any bold new moves, and it is especially important not to jump to conclusions.

Today’s Tarot Card for July 30 is Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune

This Tarot Deck: Moon Garden

General Meaning: The central theme of what is traditionally called the Wheel of Fortune card is cyclical change. The Wheel keeps on rolling, churning events in a ceaseless progression of ups and downs, either way freeing us from the past. No one can escape its cyclical action, which can feel somewhat terrifying — no matter whether we are rising or falling. When one is balanced on top there is a moment of crystal clarity, but the only part of the Wheel not going up and down is the hub, which is your eternal Self, the Source of Freedom.

Every one of us will occupy all the points on the wheel at some time or another. The cycle of the wheel is its lesson — and we can learn to take comfort in it (as we do when we celebrate our birthday). If you don’t like the look of things right now, just wait — things will change. Of course, if you do like the look of things right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because that will change too!

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, July 30

The Moon’s entry into dramatic Leo today at 2:15 am EDT brings our feelings out into the light for everyone to see. But the fiery Leo New Moon at 2:39 pm shifts our focus away from our internal process and toward external expression. Ironically, we reach the height of our creativity just as we begin a new project. The New Moon’s dynamic square with pompous Jupiter encourages us to act with bravado, but it’s wiser to practice humility, instead.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Leo New Moon is your ticket to fun, especially if you have scheduled an enjoyable activity for the day. You might think that you should take charge because you know what’s going on, but you won’t get far before realizing that your fantasies have overtaken reality. If it’s too late to hand over the reins to someone else, just focus on the present moment and do the best you can.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Leo New Moon activates your 4th House of Roots, encouraging you to tend your home garden now. You don’t need to go off in search of adventure because an idea that you have today can grow and eventually take you far. However, a significant journey to a distant shore begins with making a plan, acquiring resources and preparing for your trip. You’re not ready to leave yet, so use your time wisely while you have it available.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

There’s no need to make a fuss about your current activities today, even if you’re trying to get others to notice. Your friends may slow you down by placing demands on your time if you draw unnecessary attention to yourself. Be smart and turn on your cloaking device (or just lay low for a bit) so you can get on with your plans instead of being distracted by everyone else’s expectations.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

The Leo New Moon in your 2nd House of Money today emphasizes the importance of how you handle a financial matter. Fortunately, you can prevent a problem before it even starts by taking strategic action right away. However, if you miss your window of opportunity, a manageable situation could blossom into a multifaceted monster that leads to more complications than solutions.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Today’s Leo New Moon is a harbinger of important changes that are occurring in your life. You don’t have to wait for something to happen now; add new activities to your schedule that can bring out the best in you. But don’t try to accomplish too much too fast because shaking up your life isn’t necessary now. Moving slowly and deliberately is okay as long as you get something started while the energy is still fresh.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are brimming with ideas, but it may be smart to keep them to yourself as long as you can. Although gabby Mercury is in your sign now, it’s not useful to talk about your new project yet because your message could be misunderstood today. Get started on your own, without anyone else’s involvement; you can always connect with supportive allies later on.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may be trying to find a middle ground today as you weigh your dreams against your more practical concerns. It might feel as if you don’t have much of a choice in a complicated interpersonal matter, but no one can control your inner world. Feeding your fantasies with your attention can be just what you need to prevent yourself from falling into a boring rut. Even if you have mundane duties to perform, you are still free to escape within your mind.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The proud Leo New Moon falls in your 10th House of Status, allowing others to see how passionate you are about your success. Thankfully, you don’t have to do anything special; your no-bull attitude and determined work ethic is what impresses your friends. Still, you may be uncertain about your next move. Concentrate on your destination, for what you do today will set the tone for the next couple of weeks.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Today’s bold Leo New Moon activates your 9th House of Faraway Places. This lunar position stimulates your imagination and increases your wanderlust, even if you have set aside your globetrotting desires for a while. Naturally, a weekend off isn’t enough time to explore the Antarctic or trek across Europe. Fortunately, you can still aim high while visualizing your ideal journey. You could even begin with simply learning more about your geographical area of interest.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You might be tested by today’s expressive Leo New Moon’s presence in your 8th House of Regeneration. A relationship that’s already stressed could require your immediate attention, but there’s no reason to fret. You have an opportunity to set things right by reframing the situation. Transforming your perspective lessens the pressure and enables positive change to enter your life.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Today’s outgoing Leo New Moon brightens your 7th House of Partners. Fresh waves of energy could quickly reinvigorate a failing relationship or even heat up a new one. Nevertheless, you won’t be satisfied with just feeling good now because you are inspired by your own high ideals. Go ahead and reach for something that’s previously been unattainable. Take a chance, but don’t be too self-critical if you miss the mark. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Showing up to do your chores with a smile might be half the work today with the Leo New Moon’s visit to your 6th House of Routine. You may prefer to sleep late and start your errands even later, but it’s a much smarter strategy to bounce out of bed and show everyone what you can do now. Nevertheless, grabbing the spotlight won’t help you receive the recognition you want. Working diligently on the sidelines will hasten your success as those in charge realize exactly what you’re doing.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
An old flame will call today, and invite you to lunch. It’s actually a trick to try to get you involved with AmWay. Also, check page 5 of the newspaper for something you’ve been waiting for.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Today old Monty Python skits will keep running, unbidden, through your mind. The only cure will be to be to drink a glass of a fine Australian wine, which has a bouquet like an aborigine’s armpit.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
In a surprising twist, the failure of another large London-based bank will be blamed on you, today. C’est la vie, non?
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Beware of the Spanish Inquisition, today. They may show up unexpectedly.

Good day to stand on the sidewalk near a tall building, and stare up at the roof. You’ll meet some interesting people that way.

Someone who you really dislike, who is arrogance personified…will be nice to you. This is a good time to be afraid.
