Horoscope for Saturday, July 17, 2021

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Libra into Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because your concentration on home and family has been strong lately, it’s not surprising that you might have power struggles with someone, especially a parent. Think before you react! Take a moment so you don’t just react, you thoughtfully respond.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Yowsers! Today is ripe for power struggles with others — be they siblings, relatives or encounters with routine contacts. Be careful because if you are distracted in heated dispute, this could lead to an accident. Therefore, pull in your reins. Be aware.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Don’t get your belly in a rash over financial matters because it’s not worth it. (Of course, in the passion of the moment, it is.) But if you step back and take a long-range view, you will see that because you are having such a successful year, you can be big about things. Show largess.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Power struggles between you and someone close to you might take place. But look at the definition of this type struggle? Why is it so important to have power and control? What is really going on? When the annals of history are written, will any of this really matter? Doubtful.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Life is full of constant change and an illusion that we constantly harbor is that we can be in control of things. But we can’t. If we could, there would be no accidents, no sudden deaths, no fires and no heartbreak. Don’t be upset about something over which you have no control.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A serious dispute with a friend, or perhaps one of your kids, might take place today. This dispute might also take place with a member of a group. Essentially, you are idealistically opposed and each of you seems to be stuck in your own POV. Does this sound enlightened?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Steer clear of nasty quarrels with bosses, parents, teachers and the police, because they could arise today. If so, what will you gain by standing up against them? If you are being abused, this is a different matter. But perhaps you are just rebelling for rebellion’s sake?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Disputes about politics, race or religion might take place today. You have to ask yourself what will this accomplish? Most likely, you will not change anyone else’s POV. Perhaps you just need to express your anger or your anxiety? Better to stay calm.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Arguments about money, responsibilities, shared property or issues related to inheritances and insurance might arise today. If so, this will be a serious standoff. (Bad Day at Black Rock.) Try to sidestep this kind of intense showdown if you can. You’ll feel better.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A power struggle with someone who is close to you might take place today. Actually, our closest relationships often entail power struggles. Who’s in control? Who’s calling the shots? Who is to blame? Who made this happen? This is a childish, simplistic interpretation of life, isn’t it?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Equipment breakdowns at work are likely. Perhaps power struggles related to your pet or your job might take place. If they have an “all or nothing” characteristic to them, this is your first clue. Ultimatums like “all or nothing” are immature expressions of bullying.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Parents must be patient and tolerant with their kids today. Likewise, romantic partners must be forgiving with each other because power struggles can lead to painful misunderstandings and meaningless endings.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (1947), shares your birthday. You are cheery, compassionate and caring. You are also determined and ambitious. You are intelligent and are an interesting conversationalist because you have excellent listening skills. This year is a gentler, quieter year for you. Your focus on partnerships and close friendships will be stronger. Because of this, you will be tactful and diplomatic in your conversations with everyone.
