Daily horoscopes: July 28, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

Competition is good.  It’s the opponent (not the prize) that spurs you on.  Don’t settle for anything less than life in the winner’s circle.


(April 20 – May 20):

Don’t let consensus overrule opinion.  You may not win the current debate, but being on record for disagreeing supports your side later.


(May 21 – June 20):

Focusing on the negative doesn’t brace you for anything.  In fact it makes you dubious of positive outcomes.  Adjust your psychic lens.


(June 21 – July 21):

A longstanding dispute is settled in your favor.  Instead of parting company, you could form a new alliance.  Do it right this time.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Careful.  Someone will tell you whatever you want to hear to win you over.  People know flattery gets them everywhere with you.  Don’t be such an easy mark.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

The point isn’t to solve a problem, but to grapple with it.  You’re engaged in a process that will prove both fulfilling and enlightening.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Double-entendres do not a love affair make.  If you want to get past the flirting stage then be bold.  That other person is waiting on you.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You’re driven by dissatisfaction.  Others say it’s negative, but staying hungry gives you an edge and makes you fiercely creative.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

You beat out a rival for the prize, but don’t crow too soon.  The consequences may prove steeper than you initially thought.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

What you face isn’t a test of will; it’s a test of ingenuity.  Everything you need to make a situation work is at hand.  Do you see it?


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Generosity has its limits.  Ironically it’s other people’s self-interest that teaches you a valuable lesson in how to economize efforts.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

There’s nothing wrong with letting people believe what they want as long as you don’t mislead.  It’s called choosing your words carefully.
