SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for July 7, 2016

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 7 a.m. until 5:50 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today something unexpected might upset your home routine, which means you have to tread carefully! Perhaps a small appliance will break down or minor breakage could occur. Whatever happens could lead to harsh words with a family authority or a domestic argument. Yikes! Stay frosty.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will need to be patient today because arguments with siblings, relatives and neighbors might arise. They might be triggered by something unexpected, which, in turn, makes everyone frazzled, including you. Oy! Remember that patience is the antidote to anger. Chill out.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Financial disputes might arise today. Likewise, arguments about possessions and shared property could occur. Discussions might come to a head because something unexpected occurs. Perhaps a friend or a member of a group says something to trigger a chain reaction? Go gently.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you’re determined to get to the bottom of something, which is why your encounters with others will be intense. Perhaps you want to convince someone to agree with you or vice versa? Be careful, because this kind of energy creates power-plays and pushy behavior. (Run away! Run away!)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have a strong sense of determination today, which will be apparent in your conversations with others. Ideally, the best way to use this pushy energy is to do research. If you have to dig for answers or look for solutions, you will be relentless. “Gotcha!”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Avoid quarrels with friends or members of groups today. Instead, use your powers of diplomacy to maintain the peace. Don’t let someone talk you into anything, and vice versa, don’t insist on convincing others to agree with you. Just because you’re caught off guard or surprised, don’t overreact. People are touchy today!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You feel independent and feisty today, perhaps in reaction to something unexpected that a boss, parent or someone in authority says to you. However, watch out because before you know it, you might be in deeper than you want and find yourself seriously at odds with someone. Think before you react.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Avoid controversial subjects today because power struggles and intense conversations will lead to pushy arguments. Travel plans might be cancelled or a curve ball might come your way, which, in turn, makes everyone unhappy. Go gently.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Do what you can to avoid arguments about wills, inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property today. Something unexpected (either favorable or unfavorable) will upset the balance of things, and today everyone is wading in with their opinion. Yikes!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Discussions with partners and close friends will be intense today. In fact, it will take skillful means on your part to avoid an argument. Knowing this ahead of time, tread carefully. The problem is that you will feel caught off guard, which is always unnerving. “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Equipment breakdowns and difficulties with others could trigger arguments at work today. This might even lead to health problems. Basically, something unexpected and out of the blue is tough to deal with. In turn, this makes everyone feel riled up.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids so be extra vigilant. Meanwhile, social occasions and fun times might suddenly go sideways. Although this has been a lovely, fun-loving week so far, suddenly today, romance is in the toilet. Whaaat? Relax — this is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon. All is well.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Kirsten Vangsness (1972) shares your birthday today. It is important to you to reveal the truth of things to others, and you will do this even if you have to use shock value. This year you are ready for something new. Be ready to take advantage of opportunities that present themselves. Expect a major change, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to test your future!
