Third Eye Rite

Third Eye Rite

 

Perform this neo-Pagan ritual to improve psychic powers three days before the moon is full, and preferably when it is in either the astrological sign of Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio.
Begin by brewing a strong magical tea made from yarrow or mugwort (herbs that stimulate the psychic senses) and then light thirteen purple colored votive candles to help attract psychic influences.
Drink the tea and then gaze fixedly into a magic mirror, crystal ball, or crystal pyramid as you chant thrice the following incantation:

I invoke thee, O Asariel
Archangel of Neptune
And ruler of clairvoyant powers.
I ask thee now to open my third eye
And show me the hidden light
Let me see the future.
Let me see the past.
Let me perceive the divine
Kingdoms of the unknown.
Let me understand the wisdom
Of the mighty universe.
So mote it be!

After chanting, relax, breathe slowly and concentrate on opening your Third Eye. Do not permit any negative thought to contaminate your mind. The Third Eye, an invisible chakra located in the middle of the forehead above the space between the eyebrows, is the human body’s highest source of power, supernormal sight and clairvoyant vision.

Basic Overview of August Horoscopes 2011

August Horoscope 2011

by Jeff Jawer
 

Make the Most of Mercury Retrograde

The key astrological event of August is Mercury’s retrograde cycle from August 2-26. This backward turn of the communication planet happens three times a year, and is well known for complicating conversations, muddling messages, blurring details, and triggering technical difficulties and travel troubles. While some astrologers recommend avoiding starting new projects or signing contracts during this period, it’s often impossible to do so. Just make sure to double-check data and confirm details carefully to limit the risk of making mistakes. In fact, Mercury retrograde can be very useful for completing unfinished business or returning to an old creative interest.

The contrasting sign positions of astrology’s lovers — Venus and Mars — are a complicating factor in relationships this month. Alluring Venus in bold Leo until August 21 favors splashy displays of affection and romantic drama. Hearts can open wide in expressive displays of generosity and adoration. There is a narcissistic side to this transit, though — some egos may overinflate as individuals demand more attention and approval than usual. The fun of this playful combination is countered by passionate Mars’ move into super-sensitive and self-protective Cancer on August 3. Instead of taking initiative with confidence, this transit evokes a more careful and timid approach to partnerships. Venus in Leo needs heroes, yet warrior Mars is more into playing it safe in cuddly Cancer. Venus’ shift into pragmatic Virgo on the August 21 brings these two planets into a more cohesive relationship, as reason and security take precedence over big displays of affection.

The bold and outgoing qualities of fiery Leo are fueled by the Sun’s presence in this grandiose sign. Chests may expand with self-importance, even as macho Mars is wearing Cancer’s apron. Leo is wonderful when confident individuals express it joyously. However, insecurity during Leo days often draws unpleasant pictures of bullies and showoffs whose external displays of self-importance are not matched by the quality of their work or by generous spirits. The Sun’s entry into earthy Virgo on August 23 tones down brash behavior as the focus shifts to taking care of business rather than putting on a show.

The Leonine need to be the center of attention is highlighted with a lunar opposition from egalitarian Aquarius on August 13. This Full Moon contrasts personal authority (Leo) with collective concerns (Aquarius). Cool Aquarius can put a chill on overheated romance and hyper-inflated egos. Bossy people may be put down by clever comments, but the purpose of this lunation is not to embarrass anyone. It is meant to serve as a reminder that even the greatest among us requires a community of friends, fans and supporters. We can sometimes feel pulled apart by the lunar opposition to the Sun during a Full Moon. Yet its message is to make us aware of the spectrum of responses available to all of us so that we can stretch our behavioral vocabulary. Learning when to take the lead and be a star (Leo) and when to be a cooperative member of the chorus (Aquarius) teaches us to play a variety of roles.

Mercury’s forward turn on August 26 and the New Moon in analytical Virgo on August 28 complete the transition from Leo’s fiery explorations of self-expression to more modest and detail-oriented ways of operating. The upside of Virgo is the refinement of skills and the ability to apply them with purpose and precision. Its downside is being overly critical. Constructive criticism that provides useful solutions to address flaws is an excellent way to make the most of this productive and practical sign.

Your Daily Horoscopes for July 27th

We may feel a heightened sense of urgency today as the dramatic Leo Sun harmoniously trines electric Uranus. Hidden tensions suddenly come to the surface, which can upset the status quo. However, we are also excited about the possible changes and may even take unnecessary risks to make something happen. The flighty Gemini Moon joins spontaneous Mars midday to raise the stakes, but things calm down when the Moon enters quiet Cancer at 9:11 pm EDT.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are in your element today as the Sun in your 5th House of Fun and Games connects with brilliant Uranus in your sign. Instead of doing things in a familiar manner, you are motivated to try something new. Your mind is buzzing with exciting ideas now, and you are itching to see how they translate into the real world. Obviously, you would like to succeed, but you’ll be quite satisfied if a good time is had by all.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You have a lot of details to handle today, but you’ll probably figure out a way to do something more fun instead. For example, rather than finishing a project you might channel your creativity toward planning an escape from work. Ironically, the craziest ideas are the ones you’ll most likely get away with now, so don’t be afraid to step outside of the box.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may get a chance to do something that is not part of your regular routine today, but it will probably turn out differently than you think. Perhaps you are invited to attend a social event, only to discover that your assumptions about those in attendance need to be revised. Fortunately, you are able to shift gears easily and adapt to unusual circumstances. You may be pleasantly surprised as long as you remain open to the unexpected.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You’re not thrilled about being thrust into the public eye today, but it’s probably a good idea to hide your annoyance. Overcoming your resistance enables you to surprise others with your stellar performance. However, playing your part can bring recognition by your peers or even a raise in pay, so don’t say no just because the thought of being on stage makes you feel uncomfortable.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This can be a most memorable day for you because you can get away with being as weird as you want. Your need to do something totally outrageous may reach a point of no return today, provoking you to take sudden action. But rather than being sensitive to other people’s needs, maverick Uranus connects with the Sun in your sign, encouraging you to do as you wish. Nevertheless, there is still an unspoken boundary. Don’t go too far over the edge now or you’ll have to spend time later cleaning up the mess you make.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have something that you need to do at work today and you won’t let someone get in your way without putting up a fight. Fortunately, you can emerge as the winner if you are honest about your intentions and don’t scatter your energy. Don’t think twice about standing up for yourself, even if you would rather avoid conflict. Hopefully, the skirmish will be over quickly and you’ll be able to get on with your job once the air is cleared.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Unconventional friends can inspire you today because you view them as your “Get out of Jail Free” card. You may feel restrained by the current social circumstances, making it difficult for you to escape the boredom of the day. However, it’s easier to step out of the box when you’re hanging out with people who are innovative, radical and eccentric. Nevertheless, it’s a mistake to expect someone else to make your move for you; take a chance and let your freak flag fly.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You can be the hero who saves the day if you are willing to move beyond your fears and share your unorthodox solution to a problem at work. Although you might expect others to reject your idea because it’s so wacky, they may quickly approve because they like how unusual it is. Don’t hold your punches now; state your case as clearly as possible and then let go of your attachment to the outcome. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s time to resurrect your dreams of taking a holiday to an exotic destination now that the Sun is visiting your 9th House of Travel. Its easy trine to irrepressible Uranus in your 5th House of Play turns an unrealistic fantasy into a reachable goal. You don’t need to fill in all the details yet; just declare your intentions and start making plans now. Before you know it you’ll be on your way.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may need to deal with a few surprises in your personal life now, but ultimately everything should turn out just fine. Your need for stability on the home front runs up against your desire for more personal freedom. Normally, you aren’t thrilled by the idea of unexpected change; however, today you are relieved when the stuck energy is finally released. Don’t hold on to old fears because they will only stand in the way of your potential happiness.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your key planet Uranus forms a superconductive trine with the Sun in your 7th House of Partnerships today, electrifying your communication. You have an opportunity to express yourself in a way that might reveal a part of you that you have been hiding. Fortunately, a relationship can be strengthened now when you take a risk and share what’s in your heart, even if your feelings are radical. Don’t hold back; this is a chance for you to be uniquely you.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

An exciting breakthrough at work is possible today and it could ultimately affect your finances in a positive way. You have an excess of innovative ideas now that you can bring to the job. But don’t waste time making plans or telling others what you intend to do. Your intuitive channels are wide open, so get busy and follow your instincts.

Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 12th

We may be caught between two opposing cosmic messages today as the outgoing Sagittarius Moon lifts our spirits and widens our horizons. Her harmonious aspects to chatty Mercury and active Mars help us to communicate clearly while encouraging energetic interactions with others. However, affectionate Venus, already hesitant in timid Cancer, forms a stressful square with somber Saturn. Instead of turning on the charm, we may seek isolation instead.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may grow tired of encouraging other people’s ideas, especially if they don’t even seem to listen to yours. You want to maintain a positive attitude, but could withdraw your support if your irritation turns to resentment. Be careful how you express your frustration. Leaving close friends and co-workers to fend for themselves will only increase ill will. There’s no need to overreact; expressing your concerns is healthy, but you don’t have to alienate others in the process.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

An unresolved issue with a workmate needs to be addressed as your key planet Venus harshly squares authoritative Saturn. You understand the importance of sharing your feelings now, but fear the negative consequences of being completely honest. Nevertheless, you must say what’s on your mind or people will draw incorrect conclusions because they lack the basic facts. Being kind to others will help you move through a conflict gracefully.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You may go through a day or two of self-doubt as Venus in your 2nd House of Self-Worth squares hard-nosed Saturn. Take time to consider what is most important to you, but don’t minimize the needs of others. Even if you aren’t happy enough to dance in the streets, don’t take it out on those nearby. Simply do what you must to make yourself more comfortable and then get busy with what must be done. Your life will quickly improve on its own if you don’t focus solely on what’s wrong.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Tough Saturn squares sweet Venus in your sensitive sign, signifying changes in your personal life. You are at the end of a cycle, but not ready yet to begin the next one. You might not be able to see the opportunities that are coming your way, but they are just around the corner. Don’t panic and try to make something happen, but don’t give up prematurely, either. Just accept that you still need time to process recent events before jumping ahead into something new.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might be anxious today, even if you cannot logically determine the source of your feelings. There could be specific issues that you’re dealing with, but your worry might be out of proportion with what’s actually happening now. Nevertheless, it’s not wise to avoid your feelings; denial only strengthens them. Instead, pay careful attention to all physical symptoms without trying to control your sensations. Resistance is futile, so let your emotions ripple through the present moment. Tomorrow will be a brand new day.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

In theory, you want to be included in a larger group of friends or associates, but you’re more comfortable being an outsider today. You might think that everyone disagrees with you now, and you may feel excluded even if you don’t voice your opinions. Ironically, you will be more accepted if you let your peers know exactly where you stand. No one can fault you for speaking from the heart.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your ruling planet Venus, now visiting your 10th House of Career, provokes feelings of loneliness as she squares judgmental Saturn. Emotional stress that has been pressurizing for a while could suddenly explode and turn your professional life upside down. Instead of worrying about the unknown, embrace the upcoming shift. Even if you face a temporary setback, the lessons you learn today can help to reestablish equilibrium in your life.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The recent emphasis on your 9th House of Higher Truth enables you to see far into your own future. However, you might not be pleased with where your current path is now leading. But instead of allowing yourself to grow discouraged, concentrate on the possibilities ahead. Don’t alter your present course, even if you’re feeling as if something has gone awry. Today’s malaise will pass, leaving you with a clearer sense of what to do tomorrow.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are a champ at making your life look fabulous, yet today you might be hurting deep inside where others won’t notice. You may even be uncharacteristically self-critical because your shortcomings are so apparent to you now. You will feel better if you share your new realizations with someone who will give you honest feedback. However, it’s not wise to blab about your secrets to everyone, so choose your confidants carefully before you entrust them with your heart.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may feel lonely today as loving Venus in your 7th House of Others squares your key planet, Saturn the Taskmaster. You don’t like it when someone comes down hard on you or makes unreasonable demands. However, logic can’t help you decide how to respond now; trust your instincts, instead. If your gut tells you no, then don’t do it. On the other hand, if you think you should get involved, give it one hundred percent, even if you must set aside a previous commitment.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your regular routine may feel oppressive today, yet there’s no simple escape route. Nevertheless, it’s still a smart idea to think about what you are doing and why you continue to do it. Naturally, breaking out of a rut sounds good, but maintaining the status quo feels much safer now. Don’t make any changes until you are ready. Your motivation needs to come from within to have a significant impact.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Others may think that they understand you well enough to give you advice; however, their false assumptions only serve to alienate you. Their expectations can be quite unrealistic, yet these unfair judgments hold power over you now. Don’t make any long-term decisions today, for your current emotional disconnection is warping your perspective. Be patient; a more positive outlook will return in a day or two.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, July 8th

The socially astute Libra Moon encourages us to look before we leap. Nevertheless, we’re so eager to have the thrill of a memorable experience that we may forget to consider the feelings of someone we love. Meanwhile, gentle Venus in tender Cancer opposes domineering Pluto in stern Capricorn, engaging us in a deep emotional conflict that can alter our feelings. This intense combination can result in a power struggle unless we relinquish control.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you are eager to love, you may be too quick to fix whatever is wrong today. Your desire to make everything okay can lead you to miss the best part of a relationship. Rather than immediately taking control, it’s healthier to open your heart as wide as you can and simply feel what’s happening — without doing anything at all. Naturally, you want to show others that you care, but you could create more intimacy now by revealing your vulnerability.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

It’s not easy for you to share your feelings today, since your needs could get lost in all the busyness of the day if you don’t make time to connect with someone at work. Keep in mind that the most important communication probably won’t be written or spoken. Your true message will emanate lovingly from your heart without any expectations. If you can avoid making demands on others, they will be more likely to give you their love and appreciation on their own accord.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Ironically, the smartest way to acknowledge the significance of a current relationship today is to withdraw a little to give the other person some space. This is not the best day to present your demands or to assume that you know what’s ahead. Steer clear of any unnecessary confrontations over who is the boss. Just accept others for who they are and be secure in your own position. Save the heavy processing for another day when the atmosphere is more conducive to constructive dialogue.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Sexy Venus in your sign naturally amplifies your desires, but her opposition to passionate Pluto makes it more difficult to share your feelings. You might believe that you’re trapped and that you won’t be able to find a path to satisfaction. However, this is not the time to give up. Take a risk and share your needs with someone you trust, but don’t blame anyone else for your current predicament. Obstacles won’t seem so overwhelming if you speak directly from your heart and take full responsibility for your emotions.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may appear bright and cheery to others, yet there could be a challenging story that’s hiding behind your friendly smile. You think that you’re doing the right thing by sharing positive vibes, rather than spreading discouragement or anger. However, you pay a price for withholding what’s important to you, and your suppressed negativity might just find a way to circle around and kick you from behind. Seek healthy ways to express your truth, so you can shine even brighter than before.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You don’t like feeling coerced to express a certain point of view today. Your impulse probably isn’t to fight back, but to resist passively by keeping your thoughts to yourself. Be careful; if you bend under pressure and act in a politically expedient manner, you’ll feel the weight of the circumstances lean on you harder. But you can be strong now and support those who need it, while still going on the record with your own point of view.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your sense of power is not derived from anything you do today; actually, it’s more dependent on what you don’t do. You can make your point most effectively now by withdrawing your support from someone and simply focusing your efforts somewhere else. An open confrontation won’t bring resolution, so avoid going to emotional extremes until you can regain your objectivity.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may be feeling pressured by an emotional conflict that has been hovering dangerously at the edge of eruption. But don’t get hooked by someone else’s issues. Remember that your jealousy or envy is likely based on your habitual insecurities and fears. You can overcome the immediate threat by being grateful for the abundance of blessings in your life, instead of worrying that there’s not enough for you to get what you want.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might stay in perpetual motion today to avoid an uncomfortable issue. But it’s not a sensible strategy to distract yourself so you don’t have to admit that something is out of balance in your life. You would be wise to take a bit of quiet time to reconnect with your inner world, even if your schedule is very busy. Once you get in touch with yourself, share your feelings with someone you trust. Your disclosure may be exactly the catalyst you need now to break out of a rut.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A close relationship can be a source of worry today, especially if the balance of power isn’t just right. You don’t want to be controlled by someone else’s agenda. Even if you’re the one who is making the rules, a lack of equality can destabilize a partnership. Don’t make assumptions now about who is in charge; talking it out can help to bring things back into harmony.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may see the weekend ahead as a chance to retreat. But your spiritual quest might need to be put on hold as you grapple with the complexity of a relationship that has grown overly intense. Nevertheless, allowing for some cooling off time could be wiser than pushing your way into an emotional mess that won’t be easy to manage. But this dilemma is not about avoiding crucial issues; rather, it’s all about finding your own center.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Strong passions may blast up to the surface, transforming a casual interaction into an intense emotional battlefield. Or, your profound feelings could lure you into an intricate dance with someone you love. In either case, this isn’t a lighthearted time. Fortunately, you can assure a more positive outcome for everyone involved by changing the rules of the game and making it non-competitive.

General Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 4th

There’s a strange mix of tradition and exploration in relationships this week. Loving Venus is now in conventional Cancer, spurring desire for security. Yet her tense aspects with experimental Uranus and extreme Pluto make it hard to feel safe, as rapidly changing feelings and intense emotions bring drama to our personal lives.

 

 
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Moon in your relationship houses pushes partnership issues into the spotlight this weekend. Friday evening can start on emotionally shaky ground and end up feeling like a party. But you don’t get to play and run this time because the Scorpio Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy attracts complex partners who may want more than you’re willing to give. Being honest about your limitations is the best policy right from the start.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You could have a hard time this weekend finding the simplicity and comfort you enjoy so much. The Moon is traveling through the deep waters of Scorpio, taking relationships to exciting but dangerous territory. Feelings may be exposed that alter the nature of a partnership, but the emotional journey can help you recognize what you really need in order to find happiness with another person.

 

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your easy breezy attitude is usually very appealing to others, but it isn’t the secret sauce to heat up your love life this weekend. Being willing to share your fears may not sound sexy, but if your vulnerability is sincere, it could strengthen an ongoing relationship or help you start a new one. There’s no need to rush; take your time to process the powerful feelings that are emerging now and let things unfold naturally.

 

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Passion is pulling you very strongly this weekend. Magnetic Venus opposes potent Pluto on Friday and the erotic Scorpio Moon is activating your 5th House of Romance. Your powers of seduction are higher than usual so there’s no need to wait for someone else to make the first move. Coming on strong and expressing your desires may feel uncomfortable at first, but others find your newfound assertiveness to be refreshingly sexy.

 

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

This weekend isn’t the best time to be brassy and sassy. It’s much more interesting (and real) to allow your vulnerability to rise to the surface. Self-pity and complaining aren’t attractive, but a truthful expression of your needs and concerns can earn you trust. Investing emotionally in a meaningful connection will be more rewarding now than keeping things light.

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The purpose of using your impeccable logic this weekend is to discuss powerful emotional issues, instead of inventing ways to avoid them in your mind. You can untie knots of misunderstanding when you’re willing to talk about delicate matters without getting bogged down in blame or guilt. Seeking to solve problems now by engaging in constructive dialogue is healthier than ignoring the situation any longer.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel disappointed in a person close to you on Friday as your key planet Venus is opposed by suspicious Pluto. Yet this can be a perfect opportunity to dig in to an issue that you’ve been previously unwilling to face. Confronting the truth is a courageous act that will either heal the relationship or give you the strength to help you pursue love with someone else.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon traveling through your sign this weekend stirs up your hunger for intimacy. It’s still not unreasonable to be afraid of going after who and what you want, but doing nothing is even more dangerous now. Silence will isolate you, while speaking up, even if it’s a struggle, can clear the air and restore trust or convince you that it’s time to move on.

 

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your easygoing and friendly nature is usually delightful and garners plenty of positive attention. But the Moon is hanging out in your secretive 12th House this weekend, which requires a more subtle approach to self-expression. Quiet conversations in out-of-the-way places will do more for your love life now than partying hardy and playing hard.

 

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Complicated friends and passionate pals play active roles in your personal life this weekend. The Moon lighting up your 11th House of Groups is ideal for going out with a gang of people. Yet no matter how exciting things get, knowing when to keep silent might be more important than anything you say. Choose your words and companions carefully now so things don’t get messy later on.

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The freedom and independence you normally crave could be hard to come by this weekend. The Moon enters intense Scorpio late on Friday, which can bring out the clingy sides of people. Don’t allow yourself to be cornered or manipulated by anyone, but if you desire intimacy, you may have to lose yourself in the mysterious world of emotions to find it.

 

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s amazing how you can use your powers of persuasion with such subtlety this weekend. You have a very good chance of getting your way without anyone feeling like you’re tricking them. You don’t even have to explain your motives unless you want to now. Leaving an air of mystery around you only makes you more captivating to others.

Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, July 2

The Sun in emotional Cancer is restrained today by a stressful square to stoic Saturn, requiring us to withhold our feelings. Ironically, chatty Mercury enters boisterous Leo, encouraging expressive communication. But Mercury aligns with spacey Neptune, indicating that our words may not tell the whole story. Additionally, the Moon’s shift into fiery Leo at 5:42 pm EDT motivates us to be outgoing, but playful actions might actually hide our fears.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Resentment can grow out of frustration if you can’t figure out how to bring strong feelings out into the open. Your regular channels of communication may be blocked today, leading you to internalize your unexpressed feelings. But your inability to say what’s on your mind has less to do with external circumstances than with your need to process a lesson that you have been trying to avoid. The obstacles won’t seem so overwhelming if you are willing to face the truth.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Now that your life seems to be moving in a positive direction again, you aren’t eager to have to slow down for any reason. Nevertheless, easing off the gas pedal is a smart idea because you could lose control if you’re taking the curves too fast. Although you might try to keep up with all your current projects, circumstances could dictate otherwise. Be wise and practice some self-discipline before things get out of hand.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You cannot waste energy and get away with it today because you are under pressure to get a lot accomplished and there’s very little margin for error. You don’t have much of a choice; you must pay attention to taskmaster Saturn as it gives you a stern reality check. However, just listening to the message is not enough. Narrow your concentration so you can focus on the most critical matters first.

 
Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may retreat from a social situation today because someone hurts your feelings, even if it’s unintentional. You could take a setback so seriously that you just want to stay home and be by yourself. However, withdrawing is not the most intelligent strategy now. Instead of concentrating on your disappointment, figure out how to improve your productivity. If you are accomplishing what you set out to do, you’re less likely to have time to be bothered by the inconsiderate actions of others.

 
Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may be the first one to say you want to have fun, it’s not that easy to set aside your responsibilities in favor of pleasure. Usually, you can easily discuss the alternative plans before determining the best way to handle the current temptations. However, your tendency is to keep your misgivings secret today. Push up against your resistance and take a risk. Others won’t judge you so quickly if you share what’s on your mind with them.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are determined to maintain your integrity now by doing exactly what you promise, but distractions and obstructions continue to alter your course. You may be excited to head in an unknown direction, but you are on a mission and every setback brings more frustration. You can gain a lot of strength by staying on your spiritual path, rather than wandering around aimlessly. Remember, you cannot reach your destination if you stop to explore every alternative along the way.

 
Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s not apparent where so much resistance is coming from now, but you could bump into stone walls no matter which way you turn. Even your friends that are normally helpful seem to be blocking your way today. Thankfully, you have a secret weapon that you can use to your advantage: your ability to wait. Patience, combined with unflappable determination, is your ticket through this difficult obstacle course.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are following a path that you have been down before. However, you discover that even paved highways have fallen into decay and are difficult to traverse. No matter that you were previously moving along smoothly, now every step is a small victory and you need to work hard to gain more ground. Today’s progress may feel good but will probably leave you exhausted. Don’t take on too much; it’s better to do one job well than to do several things haphazardly.

 
Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You do what you can to put your best foot forward, even in light of discouraging news today. It isn’t easy to overcome a setback just by changing your mind. There are other concerns about the people you love and your role in the community. You have a lot to think about now, but rest assured your perspective will be better tomorrow. Allow a couple of days for things to turn around before reassessing the situation.

 
Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your somber attitude may be misinterpreted today as incurable pessimism; however, you don’t feel as negative as you appear. You understand exactly what’s required to reach your goals and are willing to do whatever you must to deliver on your promises. However, others may express their doubts now, but don’t let them talk you out of your beliefs. Approach the future with a realistic outlook to prevent unnecessary disappointment later on.

 
Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The connection between your current inability to express yourself freely and others holding you back might be more challenging than you think. In fact, your creativity may be squelched by Saturn’s square to the Sun. Be careful; don’t jump to conclusions today or you could waste a lot of energy incorrectly blaming others for your dilemma. Taking total responsibility for your own actions is a healthy place to start.

 
Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It doesn’t feel good if a friend suddenly withdraws his or her support today. The cold shoulder you are receiving doesn’t seem to be an appropriate response to your hard work, leaving you feeling angry and confused. Don’t waste time or energy complaining; instead, take the high road and finish what you started. The more you stay focused now, the easier it will be next week when the challenging Sun-Saturn alignment begins to fade.
