Horoscope for today - Free Daily Horoscope - July 31 2017
● General: It's going to be an interesting day, complete with the possibility of a visit from the green-eyed monster. And when it comes along, you really shouldn't blame yourself. Jealousy is in the air. Doesn't mean you actually did anything to inspire it, much less that you're responsible for its arrival. Your only defense is to be honest, stand your ground and try to explain what happened. After that's done, your part of the project is over.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Relinquish a little control to get what you want -- be patient a little longer. The solution to your current dilemma is right in front of your nose. Just ride it out a little longer and keep your eye on the prize.
● Finances: Give yourself the credit you are due. You didn't get to this point by being charming or likeable -- you got here by putting in the hard work that was necessary. There, that wasn't so hard to admit, was it?
● Love: You're about to hit a lucky streak when it comes to your love life. Take full advantage of it by pursuing your heart's desire. However, if the scenario is too good to be true, make sure you really scrutinize it.
● General: Someone you're quite intimately involved with may seem to be a bit cranky today, to say the very least. Does this mean it's over between you, or that there's really nothing to do about the current situation? Not at all. The first thing to do is to start up a conversation -- gently -- about the problem. Let them know you want to understand what's going on. If they don't want to talk, there's not much you can do about it, except to wait until they are.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: If you're traveling for work or have to be in the office today, you're in luck. Expect a ton of perks or unbelievable coincidences to come your way. Bask in your good fortune and find new opportunities for growth.
● Finances: You're feeling greedy and that's an emotion you should let yourself indulge in today. It will motivate you to make ever more money, and that's never a bad thing. When it comes to hard work, there is no overdoing it.
● Love: Is the situation between you and you-know-who heating up too quickly? Take a step back, or better yet, spend a few days apart. A little dash of perspective will keep things from getting too spicy.
● General: A dear one seems to be completely out of control and totally irritated with you. Regardless of what you say, they may not believe you're telling the truth. Yes, it's going to be a challenging day. But for some reason, you'll manage to find the patience you need to get through it. All you have to do is pretend you're in their shoes. That, and let them know you're willing to talk.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Your personal relationships have a profound effect on your work now ... and it won't be anything trivial, such as interruptions from home. A conflict is brewing that involves your career, and you need to nip it in the bud ASAP.
● Finances: You're generating a lot of action but someone else is doing all the closing. There is no point in giving them all the glory -- not to mention all the profits. Start having more confidence in your ability to do the job from start to finish.
● Love: Think you know everything about love? Feel like you've seen it all when it comes to dating? Boy, are you in for a surprise! The stars are about to send you a zinger straight to the heart, and you'll love it.
● General: You're not quite sure of what's going on with a friend or coworker, but you know you don't like it. They've been acting oddly for some time, but today it seems to have come to a head. The one thing you're sure of is that the anger and jealousy they're turning in your direction aren't deserved. Still, you'll be able to put your hurt feelings aside and be rational. Nice going. It won't be easy, but you'll be so proud of yourself afterward.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: A work relationship you've always counted on might be undergoing a makeover. Embrace change -- the tighter you try to hold on to the old ways, the more painful it will be.
● Finances: It's time to focus on home, either yours or someone else's. There are coins in the couch cushions, so to speak, and you need to start digging for them. Once you find one or two, keep your eyes open for others.
● Love: Think about karma. It's not just 'what goes around comes around,' but knowing that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Bring your highest intentions when dealing with others and your love life will blossom.
● General: After all the shopping you've done recently, you thought you were through with the mall -- in fact, you were praying you were done for the sake of your credit rating. But an occasion has come up for you to buy presents for your dear ones. You want to let them know how special they are. Well, here's a thought: Why overspend, when it's really just a bit of your time they want?
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Do what you can to relax today. You have so few opportunities just to breathe and catch up on whatever is important to you. Instead of stressing out on that unfinished work at the office, focus on those domestic issues.
● Finances: Paying to have things done off-site is making more and more financial sense. You hate to have all those things taken care of by others but you have to face reality. Others will back you up on this one.
● Love: The person who makes you laugh until your stomach aches might just be the person for you. A sense of humor is one of the most valuable gifts a person can bring to a relationship. Give 'em a chance.
● General: You've just about had it with the veiled comments and sarcastic remarks that have been tossed your way lately on a far too regular basis. It's probably family members that have been at it, but regardless, you're ready to stop being nice and fight back. Well, good for you. Why put up with something you know you don't deserve -- especially when you know you'd never do this to them? Words can hurt far worse than weapons, if they're aimed at the heart.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Go easy on the purchases today. If that means hiding the checkbook and refraining from online shopping, so be it. Getting the best deals until a little time has passed will be hard for you.
● Finances: Just when you're ready to make a big purchase, you are delayed, either by financing or inventory or something else altogether. It could be a huge disappointment to you but it's really not a big setback in the grand scheme of things. Relax.
● Love: This person's too good to be true -- or are they? Stop looking for problems where there aren't any! You're due for a big streak of luck when it comes to love right now. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
● General: This is just one of those days when even you, with your remarkable ability to make peace, restore balance and bring warring factions into balance, won't be able to work your magic. Your peace-loving little self may find it necessary to hide out from the world temporarily, and there's nothing wrong with that. You can only do so much. If others won't cooperate, putting some distance between you and the ruckus isn't a bad move. Taking an understanding friend along wouldn't hurt, either.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You're at the center of the attention, and most of it is good. Try to trust your instincts about how to proceed -- with all those folks watching, it might be hard to judge what steps you should take next. Don't hesitate to ask a mentor.
● Finances: You don't want to flirt with success -- you want the real thing! That might mean tipping the scales your way instead of just waiting for the attention from the universe you think will just happen on its own.
● Love: Concerts, rock shows, your niece's high school talent show -- the stars say attend them all, from opera to pop. You'll meet a cute music lover who plays just your tune. Music is the food of love, so play on.
● General: It's time for you to admit something: Your values have changed. What used to be important no longer matters. That means it's time to make some corresponding outward changes -- some big ones. Fortunately, you're more than ready, even if it means saying good-bye to people, things or ways of life that were once primary to you. Don't worry about it. You'll get through this the same way you get through everything: Bravely.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Block out work today and spend time communicating with family or friends. The weekend is not an interruption in your work schedule but a time to recharge and reconnect with the people most important in your life.
● Finances: If giving in were as easy as it looked, you'd have been doing it for years. Something inside you just won't let you quit. That's to your credit, Scorpio. Keep up the good fight.
● Love: Remember how in middle school you'd fantasize about musicians and movie stars? Now try doing the grown-up version and imagine what you want from a partner. Visualizing it is the first step to finding it.
● General: Flinging a chair around the room won't help. You'll feel a little bit better, but not much. At the moment, you may even be convinced that you had every right, but you're only going to feel guilty afterward -- which, as very few people know about you, actually happens pretty easily. If you're trying to work something out between you and a dear one, hold it back. You may not win, but you'll definitely feel better about yourself in the morning.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Your intuition is sending crystal-clear messages you'd be wise to heed. Be especially watchful during long conversations -- something will come up that you might miss at first, but you'll need later.
● Finances: Be prepared to face some tough scrutiny today. Don't worry, though, you already have all the answers you need. Roll with it and you could even turn it into something fun.
● Love: It's true, your schedule is crazy, but you need to make time for romance. At the very least, try to have some fun. You're a rare commodity -- give people the chance to bask in your charming glow.
● General: Someone whom you haven't seen in a long time -- possibly someone who may actually have moved or been away -- seems to be making trouble for you from behind the scenes. You may be right -- but then, you may be wrong. Better be sure before you say or do anything that will put you in an irreparably bad position with them. Check your sources before you make that long-distance call.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You'll meet your match early next week, but until then, give it a rest. You might have the best of intentions, but doing work at home just isn't going to happen. Try to give yourself a break and leave work at the office.
● Finances: Your challenge is to know when to keep trying and when to throw in the towel. If it's just not working for you, then it makes sense to set things aside and find a new project to work on. But you already knew that in your heart of hearts, didn't you?
● Love: You're sweet, they're sour. You like it hot, they like it chill. Ever thought of combining forces? While you've never believed in that old chestnut about opposites attracting, you're starting to see the possibilities.
● General: Two friends of your -- both of whom mean a great deal to you -- have recently found it necessary to go out of their way to tick you off. At least, that's the way it seems. It's worked, too, better than it should have. You're not just angry, you're furious. Before you let go and let them have it, though, you might want to be sure you're right. Feeling righteous is far better than feeling guilty.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Scale back your expectations, but strive for greatness. Today your motto is: the bigger, the better. If you've been meaning to do something profound, now's your chance to go for it. You won't get a better opportunity.
● Finances: Whether you have way more money than usual or way less, you are experiencing a new financial milestone. It's a day to remember, that's for sure. Remember, it's all good, no matter which way the ink dries.
● Love: Your intentions are the best -- you think there's not nearly enough magic in the world. You're going to single-handedly charm and delight every person you see. A potential cutie sees and takes note.
● General: The higher-ups in your life have been less than understanding lately -- all of them. That goes for family members, elders and authority figures in general. You've gone out of your way to keep doing what they just recently told you were the right things to do. But now you're a bit confused. If that same intensity leaks over into your other relationships, try to be patient. This, too, shall pass. Promise.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Yes, a gazillion things are happening, but that's no reason to lose your cool. Stay flexible -- that includes both your brain and your body -- and you'll find that things will work out just fine.
● Finances: You've let someone ride on your coattails for long enough. If it looks like they are going to be extra weight forever, cut them loose. On the other hand, they may be ready to balance the scales in some significant way if you give them the right opportunity to.
● Love: These days you're all about self-expression, and if that happens to bring you pleasure and entertainment, so be it. No wonder people just can't help falling in love with you -- you light up a room!
