Horoscope for Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Moon Alert

After 4:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a rocky day. Parents need to be patient with their kids. Romantic partners need to be patient with each other. Even friends or members of groups might be at odds with each other. Just accept that this is the way it is and go along to get along.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Yikes! This is not the day to ask bosses and authority figures for permission or approval. Their answer will be either, “Talk to the hand.” Or “Are you crazy?” Family relations with parents and authority figures are strained. Because of increased activity and confusion chaos at home, tempers are frayed. Be nice.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an accident-prone day, so pay attention to everything you say and do. Slow down and take it easy. In addition, avoid arguments with others, especially arguments about politics, religion and racial issues — highly contentious subjects! Cool your jets.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Money disputes are likely. They could be about cash or they could be about shared property or even shared responsibilities. Likewise, discussions about inheritances and insurance are also dicey. Steer clear of these and wait for another day.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The moon is opposite retrograde Mercury and Mars in your sign, and at the same time it is at odds with explosive Uranus. This is why arguments with partners and close friends, and perhaps bosses and even the police will just break out. Use some self-discipline. Be mindful and pay attention to what you say. Be the adult in the room.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Difficulties with work colleagues are likely because of errors, delays, lost paperwork and computer problems or equipment breakdowns. Whatever the cause of your irritation, don’t let it take hold of you. Don’t be a slave to your impulse of emotions. Be chill.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Parents must be patient with their kids. Factoid. Misunderstandings, tension and genuine delays can cause frustrations, so be patient with kids because they feel this frustration as well. This is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your relations with authority figures (parents, bosses, teachers and the police) as well as family members is contentious. People are ready to argue because they are frustrated and easy to anger. Look for ways to help smooth things over. Be part of the solution, not the problem.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because of energy that is quickly frustrated and impatient, accidents might occur. They might be verbal accidents or physical accidents — either way, you don’t need this. Your only recourse is to slow down and take it easy. Don’t take anything personally. Stay frosty.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Financial arguments might take place. Sudden issues might arise, which means you need to stay on top of banking and financial details. Do not be caught with your guard down. Do your homework.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The moon is opposite retrograde Mercury and Mars, plus it is at odds with your ruler Uranus. This is not smooth sailing! You will encounter some speed bumps, which means you have to be mindful and alert, and above all, patient with others. Ya think?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Think before you speak because it’s easy to overreact, mainly because other people are overreacting! People are at odds with each other. This could cause accidents or make people say things they will regret. Be wise.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Donald Sutherland (1935) shares your birthday. You are realistic and have common sense. You also have a warm heart and sensitivity to others. This year you’re winding up something you began nine years ago. It’s time to leave behind heavy burdens and move to something new and lighter! Start to identify what is no longer relevant in your life. You are lightening your load to get ready for new beginnings.
