Daily horoscopes: July 1, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

You think you’ve heard it all before, but that’s just familiar assumptions talking. Be open to new developments. People can still surprise you.


(April 20 – May 20):

Gaining entrée was one thing. Getting to know the new crowd is something else. The Venus/Jupiter sextile shows their icy demeanor thawing.


(May 21 – June 20):

A brilliant idea emerges from an argument but you won’t recognize it right away. It comes after quiet thought and reflection.


(June 21 – July 21):

Stay focused on specifics today. Generalities may sound sensible in the moment, but they’re papering over the cracks of some faulty logic.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

A female relation surprises you with an about-face. Before she was irrational and now she’s sensible and open-minded. Can you say the same?


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Occasionally you need time to yourself. Before retreating give loved ones and friends notice so they know that you’re OK.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You return to a situation you hoped to escape. But you’ll find that both you and the other person have changed. It’s worth a fresh start.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You need the help of an old friend. Unfortunately it’s been a while since you last spoke. Come bearing gifts – plus an apology might help.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Everything was set up just right, so it’s disheartening to have to rework your formula for success. If anyone can improvise: it’s you.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Someone who said s/he could live without you returns looking penitent. Be welcoming. Whatever lessons needed to be learned have sunk in.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Get ready to practice some tough love. You don’t like pulling the plug on aspirations but it’s necessary to bring a certain someone to heel.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Guilt is your middle name, so be frugal with apologies. Too many people would be happy to see you take the fall for their mistakes.
