Your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, July 12


March 21- April 19

Why do you let other people's differences bother you? What do you care if they don't look, sound or act like you? Maybe you're just having a bad day, but your outbursts could sound paranoid to the wrong ears. Cool your temper before you start any fires that you can't put out. Make appropriate compliments if you have to say anything at all. Sure, it might sound a little stiff, but hey, you're just trying to get along. Don't worry about actively reaching out now. Save that kind of overture for moments when you're genuinely excited again.

April 20-May 20

Sure, you seem laid-back, but you're way more alert than anyone suspects. You could pop out of your hole like a spring-loaded prairie-dog if the occasion demanded it. Others need to realise that just because you're not breaking a sweat doesn't mean you're in a coma. You won't miss a thing on your day off. What, you're not taking the day off? Hey, you deserve at least two or three of them for good behaviour. It's not as if you'll actually go very far out of the loop. Things are too interesting for tuning out.


May 21-June 21

Being savvy is a survival skill, one in which you're well versed. When you're feeling insecure, though, your sharp wit and acute perception of social workings don't comfort you. Today, you crave real security, such as a stable romantic relationship, loving and devoted friends, or a warm and comfortable house. Wait a minute. Maybe you already have some or all of these things. Could you be so lucky? It isn't luck. You've amassed these things yourself. You'll find you're far more secure than you realised.


June 22-July 22

Be a discerning consumer. Pay attention to what slips through your fingers today. Be frugal if you want it to last, whether you conserve through traditional methods, or invent new shortcuts. But even as you take all these elaborate steps, keep in mind nothing lasts forever, and often not even that long. What seems fresh and cutting edge today could already smell stale and moldy next month. Maybe you should think about what enhances your quality of life from one moment to the next. Planning ahead is OK, but don't forget about here and now.


July 23-August 22

You might feel confused, even insecure today. You want to treat people well — even gallantly. But you know chivalry opens you up to attack. Luckily for you, there aren't any predators around. You're free to spread good will and kind gestures with abandon. Better yet, take this time to assess risks involved in your plans. This is important if you plan to do more than lend a helping hand today.


August 23-September 22

Emotional investment would be so easy, particularly if you've been around this block before. But maybe you only think you know what's going on here. Start paying attention to all sides of the story before you let anyone or anything push your buttons. You may not like letting other people use you unless you get something out of the deal, too. Today could be interesting. And this time, experience it as a one-of-a-kind adventure instead of another trip around the block.


September 23-October 22

Blind optimism is your friend. Vanity might actually be a good thing. What's up with that, anyway? If you really want to crunch some numbers and recalculate the odds, you could be in for a rude awakening. Your commitment might waver in the glare of daylight. You might blink at some critical moment. And if that were to happen, beware of those who sense weakness. Having the predators all over you wouldn't exactly be a lot of fun. Rally your strength today. It might be exhausting, but at least you'll be in a better place when it's time to rest.


October 23 – November 22

Sure, you might seem a little wishy-washy right now. It's just that you're tuning in so deeply to the world around you and responding to its subtlest messages. As a matter of fact, people are sure to recognise your innate gift of perception, so they'll go along with any changes you want to make. Everyone knows that adjustments are sometimes necessary to get things just right, in an organic, intuitive way. Be sure to capitalise on this sudden lack of resistance. You might be surprised at where it takes you today.


November 23-December 20

You're like a car running uphill on fumes — all kinetic energy and intention, but nothing substantial to carry you through. Now's a good time to pull back before you go over the top. Any excess you create will only lead to untidy solutions. While you're comfortable with a certain level of chaos, you're better off using the day to tie up any loose ends. Spend some time at home, preferably with someone you care about. Channel some of that excess passion toward a pleasurable, relaxing experience even if it's just a good meal.


December 21-January 19

Don't assume you know everything, or even anything, today. You've never been entirely comfortable with feelings or intuition, and now your internal compass is off, clouded by the veil of your emotions and everyone else's. So proceed with caution. Stick to the known facts, and ask others to explain their feelings. In fact, you'll find that their opinions carry a lot of weight, including the ability to sway you. See? You're not so unemotional or hard of heart after all. You're a softie, just like the rest of us!


January 20-February 18

You're confused and overwrought. You're working at cross purposes with yourself, and it's starting to affect your health. Tired and tense at the same time, your instinct is to isolate yourself from anyone who rubs you the wrong way. But maybe all that's needed is a change in perspective. Everyone's problems are connected, after all. Normally, you're sympathetic to others' issues, because you know they're just like your own. Call on that dynamic point of view now, and work on a creative cure from several angles. Maybe you can fix things for everyone.


February 19-March 20

Sometimes, you just don't have enough psychic energy to deal with the rest of the world. However, today is not one of those days. Instead, this is one of those times when you feel emotionally attuned, soft hearted and compassionate. You're very sensitive but not in a way that makes you hurt. You have a gentle touch for anyone and everyone who needs it. Don't keep it to yourself, not that you would. You can spread this positive energy to everyone around you. Other people deserve a taste of the ambrosia you're serving up.
