ASTROLOGY FOR WEEK BEGINNING JULY 24, 2003

By Dee Price Miller

CANCER (June 22 to July 23) Itís time to talk about money again, to save it or spend it, borrow it or lend it. Whatever you decide to do it looks like a profitable time for you. If you spend more than you had planned, at least you will enjoy your purchase and think that it was well worth it for the good feeling you have. You make travel plans on the spur-of-the-moment. Activities with children and new romances are favored. You misplace something you value.

LEO (July 24 to Aug. 23) You begin to focus on your own personal goals. You are ready to take a project off the back burner and work on it in earnest. Partners are not as reliable as you would like them to be, so donít take on more than you can handle yourself. You meet with frustrations at work because you donít know the details about a future plan, or you get no cooperation from others. Donít let anyone talk you into anything you donít want to do.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) The New Moon directs your thoughts inward and private concerns take priority over social interests. Be sure that the signals you give others are clear. Love and romance are accented and it is a favorable time for starting new relationships and you get your ideas across to others easily and impress them favorably. You could be disappointed in a friend who reneges on a promise. Loving ties share a wonderful rapport all week.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) You get involved in activities with friends or groups who live nearby or far away. You also get involved in a contest of wills with a relative. Neither one can win, so you might as well drop it. You tie up some loose ends in your life and it is good riddance. Do not react if some- one gets on your nerves. Meet others halfway when you are faced with delays and aggravations at work. Others make demands on your time and keep you from the privacy you would like.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) You receive more than one invitation to get together with others. There are new people in your life just waiting to be met. Be diplomatic with authority figures, especially those who are obviously upset over something that has nothing to do with you. Spending money can cause quarrels, even though it goes for extra expenses, not luxuries. Be very discriminating about social invitations and accept only those that have no strings attached.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Now is your chance to make the world sit up and take notice of you. Your personality shines and you are magnetic. If you travel, you will have a most satisfactory experience and a very good social time, too. Changes in plans will work out all to the good. In a business situation, you know when to be silent and when to speak up. You see someone whom you havenít seen in a long time and enjoy it very much.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) The focus is on long range financial security. You weigh your options carefully but you do not make any final decisions. You have to deal with a secretive person who frustrates you. The weekend brings news that makes you happy. Matters of the heart are also happily accented. Donít place any faith in rumor or hearsay. Communication mixups result in some wild stories. You have some great new ideas and new starts are favored.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Partnerships take on an unusual importance in your life when joint finances are under discussion. You bring an unfinished project to completion and that relieves you more than you care to admit. Get more than one estimate for travel arrangements and take care that no one imposes on you. You meet with an unexpected money-making opportunity or find a real bargain at a flea market. Socializing is not a priority this week.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) The New Moon accents creativity, children, enjoyment and fun. Home can be the center of activity over the weekend. A family member needs an extra hug. Plans are modified, but over all it is a time when you can get a lot of fun out of life. Unexpected financial developments will be in your favor and love has some happy surprises for you. Innovative business moves are favored. If you party too heavy you will have to pay the piper!

ARIES (March 21 to April 20) It is certainly "happy trails" time for most of you. Travel and social life keep you busy and happy. There is lots of drama and excitement going on around you. Over the weekend communication could become complicated. Pay attention to what you say if you want to avoid hurt feelings and misunderstandings. You feel loving and creative toward everyone and someone benefits tremendously from your generosity.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 21) The New Moon focuses attention on property concerns and family matters. Many of you will begin a beautification program in your home or out of doors with landscaping and planting. You get started on big plans for your environment. Luck is with you and even the weather cooperates. You get plenty of advice as you go along as everyone is interested in what you are doing. Be ready for a change of plans.

GEMINI (May 22 to Jun. 22) Mental interests are favored and you get involved in some lively conversations. You and others are bursting with good ideas, some of which are quite expensive. It is a week when you should be with others. Your intuition is right on target in business dealings and you get your moneyís worth in all transactions if you follow your hunches. Protect the feelings of others just like you want them to be considerate of you.
