The Lion (July 22 -- Aug. 22)

An authority figure may be in the mood to critique you this week, and the cause may be erroneous. If you cannot immediately counter the accusation, leave it alone. The right information will turn up soon and you will be absolved. Love and romance are favored now.

For All Signs Mercury, planet of communication and travel, turns direct on the 15th just before midnight. Projects and decisions which have been delayed or set aside may now begin to move forward. This time, however, the complications of Mercury retrograde may be multiple and could take a very long time to untangle. Hopefully, any flaws or problems in previously existing ideas will have been discovered, detours made or road repairs completed, and life's traffic returns to normal.

Aries There are one or more irritants in the immediate environment. Machinery may not be working smoothly. You may be worrying about resources. That does not mean that you must adopt the angry attitude inside. This is a passing transit, no more than a few days.

Taurus Your plate is overfilled this week and your patience runs thin. Old problems on the home front may resurface. Previously completed contracts may have to be revised or scrapped altogether. Your mind is not on your business. Concentrate or you will be subject to accident.

Gemini You are an accident looking for a place to happen this week. Watch your accelerating foot and see that it does not take you out of legal range. The symbols suggest that there may be a policeman on the very corner where you squeak past the red light.

Cancer People from your past, including your family, may resurface and want to connect during this period. It is heartening to know that you've not been forgotten. You may have a strong desire to return to the old homestead and you will find welcome there.

Virgo You may be arguing legal or moral points with yourself this week. There is probably no one "right" answer, so make an effort not to waste time obsessing over unanswerable questions. Interests in travel, legal matters, or publishing may shift direction multiple times.

Libra This is a great time for love, romance, and creativity. The arts and music will give you a lift. You may be traveling to somewhere you've previously visited. Your openness and optimism are contagious, but you may not be able to see the positive effect you are having on others.

Scorpio You are in a hurry and have too much to do this week. Remember to pay attention to what your body is doing, or you could generate an accidental injury. This is probably a good week to work on your own, on projects of your personal choice if possible.

Sagittarius Your past comes back for visitation now in the form of encountering old friends. It could be only one, but this looks rather like a class reunion or some other form of group encounter. You will be the center of entertainment, just as you were in the past.

Capricorn This is a period bearing good news from the sectors of legal, publishing, or educational interests. Health also shows signs of improvement. Someone brings help or encouragement in these areas toward the end of the week and it won't be a second too soon.

Aquarius You need a real vacation, not just a weekend trip. If you are in touch with yourself, you are either heading out now or planning something soon. Someplace on the water would be just your ticket. The next possibility is going to visit a place known for its beauty, or a distant friend.

Pisces You are in a period during which giving/receiving favors is an unusually frequent occurrence. Good karma from past generosity is returning to you now. Pay attention to the bills you incur, particularly in relation to the taxes or other debts you are required to pay.
