The key to success is to always be alert, because the sooner you see something break, the sooner you can fix it.

A tricky sun-Pluto opposition on the fourteenth could cause confusion and negative emotions, especially concerning jealousy. Do you have good reason to be upset, or is it just the result of your insecurities showing?

The new moon is in your enthusiastic sign on July 31, which is a great way to end the month. Now is the perfect time to show your cards. If you want to attract love into your life, make sure you’re ready to give it. Love is a two-way street.
