For the week of July 12

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19, The Ram)

This week, Aries, find compassion. Set out time to reach out to someone near you and show them that you care about them. Good deeds are selfless.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20, The Bull)

Stand firm on your convictions. Remember why you have them in the first place? Show kindness, but don't give in yet.

Gemini (May 21-June 20, The Twins)

Look on the bright side. By sharing, you are showing what you're made of. And Gemini, you've got the goods. Don't keep it all for yourself.

Cancer (Jun. 21-Jul. 22, The Crab)

The world is moving quickly around you. Let it! People in your life are planning this and doing that. Be of service when called upon, but step out of the way.

Leo (Jul. 23-Aug. 22, The Lion)

Mighty lion, good things are coming. But take it one day at a time. Slow down and meditate on what's happening. Fear not. Relish in your glory.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22, The Maiden)

It's okay to be a little confused this week. The results are coming. It'll be tougher on you if you harp on that one thing. Expectations don't help anyone.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22, The Scales)

Your hard work has always paid off, even if it never got you the Lamborghini. This week the little things matter, like dipping your toes into the sand.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21, The Scorpion)

Your friends are in utter admiration of you. You don't quite know why of course, but it's usually better that way. This week, if painting isn't your thing, read.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21, The Centaur)

Don't sweat the small stuff. Don't you realize your strength? This week, if you're in doubt take a step back. Be open to others. What you give, you get.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19, The Goat)

Try to think about what you're eating. If you can't go without chocolate, switch from milk to dark. All that sugar is getting in the way. Health is beauty.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18, The Water-bearer)

Get honest. Maybe the secrets are fun, but you can do better. At the same time do not scrape for anyone. All those people you've helped have your back.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20, The Fish)

Have faith and confidence in your choices. Look in the mirror. Notice the strong person you've become. If it comes, offer guidance to someone this week.
