Daily horoscopes: July 31, 2015


(March 20 – April 19):

Sometimes you’re the parent and sometimes you’re the child when exercising authority. You needn’t get high-handed or bratty. Just be you.


(April 20 – May 20):

Today’s full Moon finds you standing alone, but it’s because you’re cleaning house. Dumping dead-end relationships makes way for real ones.


(May 21 – June 20):

Circumstances force you to say no. Surprisingly the other party doesn’t have a problem. You should have let circumstances speak sooner.


(June 21 – July 21):

You’re between a rock and hard place at work. You get advice to act, but hanging back is best. A thankless position could be a stronghold.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Work feels like a dead-end. This may or may not be a passing phase. Instead of looking to a boss or client for inspiration, look to yourself.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Is a rival interest serious? Does it matter? What’s important is the person taking you for granted knows he’s not the only show in town.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You draw negative fire. That’s because others can’t take advantage of you like they used to. Keep flexing those muscles.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Confident dealing with people’s money, you tend to be timid about yours. You’re in a position to demand more. But you have to ask first.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Just because something’s kept from you doesn’t make it significant. Fixation blows the whole thing out of proportion. Leave it alone.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

The iron fist in the velvet glove works best. Things are tense enough. You don’t want to provoke retaliation by coming on too strong.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Praise and recognition should make you feel better—not worse. Get a grip on insecurities. Demands you make are self-imposed.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

You’ve never had to champion yourself like you do now. But with the pressure comes more confidence. You’ll like fighting your own battles.
