ASTROLOGY FOR WEEK BEGINNING JULY 3, 2003

By Dee Price Miller

CANCER (June 22 to July 22) Like Gemini, water travel is singing itís siren song about faraway places. All sorts of plans, problems and fantasies are spinning around in your head. If you go, you will have some unusual experiences but will enjoy it just the same. The money is sitting there waiting for you to spend it. Go where there will be plenty of sunshine and warmth. You have a lot of energy just now or are undergoing a trying time with illness or surgery. In that case, be quiet and patient.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) No one knows or appreciates what you are going through right now. No one understands and they wouldnít if you tried to explain. Just hold everything and do the best you can as good times are coming your way in the near future. This is not the time to make any investments. If you lend money, you will never see it again. It is possible that someone is deceiving you, so do not be too trustful of partners, people you meet or those you know are enemies.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 23) A friend is causing you all kinds of worry. You want to be of help, thatís your specialty, but you are confused about what to do. You are afraid of making a bad matter worse and you possibly would. Be practical and nurturing, but thatís all. Donít take any drastic steps. If your partner is suddenly doing strange things or being deliberately careless, say nothing ó ignore it. A group or organization can be of service to you now. Let this happen and encourage it.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) There is plenty of action at work or within the public you have to deal with and this is most confusing when you try to organize your daily routine. A good friend understands what you are going through and can be of help to keep you optimistic and on course during this very hectic period. A child or a lover is acting in secretive or puzzling ways. It is not a good time to plan on traveling as you are unsettled enough as it is. Changes occur at a momentís notice.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) The action that is occurring in everyoneís life seems to be benefitting you as long as you sit calmly in the middle of the storm and don't make waves. Many of you will want to travel, not to see strange places, but to go back to familiar ones. Try not do anything that is impulsive and/or strange in your social or love life. Be very calm when disciplining children or you will go too far with your punishment and regret it later. Stay calm, no matter what happens.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Investments are causing you to rejoice or to worry. Be sure you know what you are doing in that area. This is not time for experimenting or jumping ship. It is not a good time to remodel or make changes in any property you own. An odd, unusual and impulsive person is not telling you the truth. There can be a sudden emergency involving the plumbing in your home. You will have a very enjoyable trip if you travel to an unusual place.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Partners have lots of unusual surprises for you. Fasten your seat belt, it looks like a bumpy ride. You are already involved, so join in and some good will come of it. Be ready to participate in the activities of this person at a momentís notice, because that is all the notice you will get. Joining in will protect your rights and help you cope with any problems. With a little imagination you can convert liabilities into assets in the very near future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Old lifestyles are disappearing and you are trying to figure out what happened. If you have been doing your own thing you will find it necessary to join a group or change your pattern of living to conform to the needs of those closest to you. It is time to develop some new, interests that have not attracted you before. It is time for you to realize how much your behavior affects others. You will slowly start to work out any needed changes in your relationships.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20) You are showing people a side of your personality that they never have seen before. You do different and surprising things and will continue doing them for the next six months. You can become accident prone because of moving too fast. You want to assert your freedom to do as you please. Avoid working with sharp instruments and dangerous tools, particularly if you are angry with someone. Accidents can happen, so be very cautious.

ARIES (March 21 to April 20) Family members or family traditions stand in the way of everything you want to do now, or so it seems. You love the wrong person, say the wrong words, admire the wrong people and feel blocked or put down everywhere you turn. Number one, try not to quarrel with family or try to do any building, redecorating, buying or selling property. Be as unobtrusive as you possibly can and concentrate on having a good time going places and seeking entertainment.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 21). Close relatives turn out to be your best friends. You not only enjoy their company but find new interests in their hobbies and the people they hang around with. You will be impulsive in the company of others and prone to accidents of your own making. Move more slowly and cautiously and avoid taking dares or doing things that you know make you clumsy. Do not rely on the advice of friends or throw long range plans out the window. Be safe, not sorry.

GEMINI (May 22 to June 21) You may long to tell the boss off in no uncertain terms, but donít do it. Money can be a problem now. You have both old and new debts and find it difficult to get organized and spend sensibly. Listen to the advice of a partner whom you trust to be honest and upbeat most of the time. Some of you will be taking a cruise in spite of the expense, because it looks like such a good bargain. You will have a good time but donít eat or drink too many strange things.
