But is there any other kind really? Many activities are repeated day-to-day, month-to-month... and yet, each time is distinct. Different days, different moods, different reasons... however slight, the variations can make a world of difference.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Assemble your ensemble because the task you face will need a team. If it doesn't, it's either not a worthy task, or you just haven't gotten to the fun part yet.<p>Updated: Sun Aug 01, 2021</p> de3899101430ee6960334db56c3a05e1 Change and a Taurus Conjunction for 07/31/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/change-and-a-taurus-conjunction Sat, 31 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The moon's conjunction with Uranus in stubborn Taurus reminds us how impossible it is to change people who don't want to change. The same goes for changing others who <i>do</i> want to change! <span class="column--highlighted-text">We are each enabled with powers of transformation that work on only one person in the entire world... the person we happen to be!</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Social problems require creative and thoughtful approaches. Brainstorm about it. The more conscientious you are, the more opportunities you find to connect, help and raise the group.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Consider that interest you pursue when you're supposed to be working. For happiness over the long haul, your go-to procrastination is a winning contender. Is there a way to make it your main deal? <p>Updated: Sat Jul 31, 2021</p> 0ecaa89c9df0d98d2a04141b05eccca4 Mars Addresses Emotional Labor for 07/30/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/mars-addresses-emotional-labor Fri, 30 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Mars leaving the sign of the heart to explore Virgo, the sign of work, speaks to the burden of emotional labor. There's a gap between our inner feelings and what we must outwardly project to fulfill the protocol of the moment. Emotional labor is the effort it takes to bridge the gap. <span class="column--highlighted-text">The endeavor can be every bit as energy-intensive as physical work. </span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). As the warrior of the zodiac, you observe the rules of battle, aware of the advance and the retreat. What matters is honor in both scenarios &#8212; to be brave and never to desert the others. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Falling in love with a person is different from falling in love with the way you feel when you're around that person. The distinction will be worth noting. Healthy relationships are thoroughly considered. <p>Updated: Fri Jul 30, 2021</p> fbb4171170f13b911845d45e9a6b8dde Mars Opposes Jupiter Under Leo's Watch for 07/29/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/mars-opposes-jupiter-under-leos-watch Thu, 29 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Under these Leo aspects, our ideas of what a relationship should be continue to conflict with our heart's impulses, preferences and leanings. We wonder if we can bring this heart and mind discord to a settlement. Probably not &#8212; not today at least. You're better off welcoming the tension. </p> <p>"The heart has its reasons which reason knows not of." &#8212; Pascal</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't always have to know what you're doing, or how to do it, to successfully execute your purpose. Intention comes with its own intelligence and it will serve you well today. Head on into the thing!<p>Updated: Thu Jul 29, 2021</p> 344dda92af8b9e9669ac59bc47dd02ef Jupiter in Socially Responsible Aquarius for 07/28/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/jupiter-in-socially-responsible-aquarius Wed, 28 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>In the weeks ahead, with Jupiter gliding through the early stages of socially responsible Aquarius, two kinds of responsibility will be served. One will be presented on the obvious platter, and you'll see what you're taking on. The other will come sneakily, without presentation, so you'll hardly realize the agreement you're making. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Stay keen to both.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll be the one who brings everyone together. Does knowing they will influence one another for better and worse make you reconsider your guest list?</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Trials are your best teachers. You'll meet challenges that affirm your strength and resourcefulness. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn prove worthy team members.<p>Updated: Wed Jul 28, 2021</p> bc22ddcb784fd5edaa4e2da312658c66 Mercury Enters Leo for 07/27/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/mercury-enters-leo-744d4 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>A communication tip as Mercury enters Leo: To cultivate a style of getting your message across is less than half of what it takes to be a good communicator. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Since success depends on bridging a gap between you and the other person, understanding where your listener is at is the most crucial element of excellent communication.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). As every doctor knows, the correct order is to diagnose and then prescribe. Today's challenges and opportunities will require a longer than usual diagnostic process, not to be skipped.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don't give up on those raw talents and half-baked notions. Getting to something useful takes time. Keep bouncing the ideas around like rocks in a stone tumbler until they come out smooth, shiny and colorful.<p>Updated: Tue Jul 27, 2021</p> 39d137dba07c598746a62f890f59d0d1 Venus Teases Out the Story for 07/26/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/venus-teases-out-the-story Mon, 26 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The Pisces moon pulling across the sky from Venus releases the art from our souls. We are all the writers of our own stories, but just because we hold the pen doesn't mean we like everything that flows out of it. For those of us who feel like the plot is getting away from us, it's only human.<span class="column--highlighted-text"> Remember who is in charge, and try again.</span> </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You make sure that everyone around you is treated with respect, friendliness and care, and not just by you. You hold all you are affiliated with to the high standard you expect from yourself. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Be sure to include people in a decision-making process. Ask them to work, and give something extra to figuring things out. People will commit to the thing they are involved with. A lack of involvement is a lack of commitment. <p>Updated: Mon Jul 26, 2021</p> b4e2107b9f00137debc48aaae8ecbc74 Mercury and Jupiter Oppositional Musings for 07/25/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/mercury-and-jupiter-oppositional-musings Sun, 25 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The day features time spent in pleasant ways as well as hours in quite the opposite mode. The unenjoyable moments are still useful, maybe even more so than the enjoyable ones. The opposition of Mercury and Jupiter points out: Anyone who thinks life should be nonstop pleasure and satisfaction is missing out on living a remarkable life. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll find yourself romanticizing the mundane aspects of your life for an audience. <span class="column--highlighted-text">All it takes is good lighting and a moment of inspiration to cue up the strong main-character energy.</span></p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you think the Shakespearean "dye has been cast," don't worry; it's a temporary stain. Time will wash it away, and you can start new or just go with the natural hues of life.<p>Updated: Sun Jul 25, 2021</p> 4a0b2d63132573942f8dcef2e2b46042 Water Sign Trine for 07/24/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/water-sign-trine-f4ba5 Sat, 24 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Mercury and Neptune align in water signs to bring about inspired windows into adjacent realities. There are potentials to explore, new worlds to peek into and most profoundly, feelings to be felt. It's a rare moment in which you can play without paying, try before you buy, investigate without pressure to commit. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). It benefits you to delight in the person in front of you and give a level of attention that assumes this is the best match in the entire world for what needs to happen in this moment of time for the both of you. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What's better than having all the answers? An excuse to collaborate! There are valuable gems to be mined; you'll do it together while building trust inside what has potential to be a crack-team. <p>Updated: Sat Jul 24, 2021</p> 37df1fe9671789d7420dd9ee96ee7677 Hope Moon for 07/23/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/hope-moon Fri, 23 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Maya Angelou said, "Every storm runs out of rain." We can look back on past "weather systems" and note how even though we didn't know at the time which drops were the last ones, the last ones did fall, and the sun, eventually, won out. The full moon in Aquarius, the sign of tomorrow reflects the hope of the Leo sun.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Take precautions against distraction. Finish what you start, and if you see an open loop, close it &#8212; no brain drains. You'll experience rich benefits from keeping your energy and focus concentrated on three things that matter. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Much will depend on your ability to accurately sum up a situation. Objectivity is key. Being able to take your own agenda out of the equation helps you see things with clarity, lending you a definite advantage. <p>Updated: Fri Jul 23, 2021</p> 2510d73534690bbbe59b81cadfc4c241 Leo Sun's Opening Night for 07/22/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/leo-suns-opening-night Thu, 22 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>We are in for a noble show. Venus and Jupiter open a velvet curtain across the sky to herald the dramatic entrance of the Leo sun. The lion makes a regal statement without saying a word; all sense the power in her every gesture. The first moments of this solar journey will do the sacred work of every opening scene; this is the new world. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're physically strong. When you move, life moves with and because of you. A sense of connection prevails. The ground, the trees, the air &#8212; the whole universe breathes with you. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Ambition is a form of optimism. It's a quality that has its drawbacks, but there's something innocent and playful about this latest ambition of yours, which will set an interesting chain of events in motion.<p>Updated: Thu Jul 22, 2021</p> 90134b767cec5429e30ae1b103b2e065 Venus Change Heralds Solar Shift for 07/21/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/venus-change-heralds-solar-shift Wed, 21 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Venus cools off in Virgo just as the sun is headed into fiery Leo, begging the question, "What does it take to keep passion alive?" Your joie de vivre is teased out by mysteries or ignited by a desire for exploration and conquest &#8212; the hope of something new and different or, better yet, the actuality of a fresh and unusual challenge.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's like you're playing an intensely psychological game of poker. What makes the game so interesting is opponents who are a worthy match. Your sense of truth will be put to the test. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are realities to be accepted and realities to be challenged. There is no way to know the difference except to take them on and let your will, mind and imagination determine which goes into what category. <p>Updated: Wed Jul 21, 2021</p> 144aa06cd9035bc1856e15061d9c6762 Luck and the Sagittarius Moon for 07/20/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/luck-and-the-sagittarius-moon Tue, 20 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>When people pay attention, pay money, pay respect, it's usually one of two things &#8212; the very rare instance of birthright, the ultimate luck. Or... the result of giving for years and years and getting very little in return. One day, the scales tip, and then it all pours your way. Cultivate the latter. This message is from the moon in fortunate Sagittarius.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Another mark on the calendar. You're doing your thing every single day and not expecting anything of it except that you continue to do it to the very best of your ability. This is the path of greatness. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you know you're going to go the distance for someone, wear good shoes. In other words, the relationship has to be comfortable. One way to make things more comfortable is to tell the truth early on.<p>Updated: Tue Jul 20, 2021</p> b9edbfae9233cf59113858a8f5364fab Cosmic Foursquare for 07/19/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/cosmic-foursquare Mon, 19 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>It's one cosmic square after another, and the dilemmas keep coming. Should you aim for a quick profit or lasting interest? Some version of this question keeps coming up in the days ahead. It's hard to gauge the long-term potential of things if indeed there even is one. Mercury's angle to Chiron says, "Do what's right, and all bases are covered."</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Endings aren't always sad. They can also be proud moments, victorious celebrations, releases that bring immediate relief. Today you let go with excitement and hope. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's like you're sitting down to a movie having seen only an intriguing poster. You're willing to go along for the ride without knowing what you're in for and whether you'll be led to laughter, tears or thrills. <p>Updated: Mon Jul 19, 2021</p> 031a3fc4df0b3c95331bd0fcef5cf708 Truth Moon for 07/18/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/truth-moon Sun, 18 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The truth-seeking Scorpio moon urges soul-level accountability. Instead of blindly absorbing what's being served up, we must do the work to get to the honesty inside the situation. Only then can we be sure we're taking the high road. What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). People around you who believe in your magnificence make you work harder to live up to their image of you. It's a metaphoric treadmill &#8212; never-ending strides to no destination that nonetheless keeps you in shape. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's something you need to do, and you can't afford to wait until you're motivated to do it. Motivation almost never shows up early to the party of life. It likes to arrive when the celebration is already in full swing. <p>Updated: Sun Jul 18, 2021</p> f29757151b18c9b94ee7b585da86ba10 Pluto's Taffy Pull for 07/17/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/plutos-taffy-pull Sat, 17 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The sun and Pluto opposition is nothing to get in the middle of, as they pull apart energy like taffy, reducing it to sticky wisps. So don't reveal or give too much now. Remain your own secret. <span class="column--highlighted-text">The good news is that it only takes one word to successfully avoid spreading yourself too thin, and that word is "no." </span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You cultivate that which you need, and yet you still feel you never have enough of it. Since this feeling (not exactly one of lack, but of an ever-present, low-grade hunger) keeps your world spinning, you may as well embrace it. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What you aim for in love is a simple feeling, but it comes from an extremely sophisticated set of rules and decisions, covering many measures, involving a great number of details. Go easy! Give yourself a break! <p>Updated: Mon Jul 19, 2021</p> 1633fadc980c3ce0690739fb249b7b1e Libra Lunar Vibes: Balancing the Unknown for 07/16/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/libra-lunar-vibes-balancing-the-unknown Fri, 16 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>"Too much planning implies that you've got it all under control. That's boring, unrealistic and dangerous" (Twyla Tharp). <span class="column--highlighted-text">The Libra lunar influence, which is all about balancing life's surprises, has this to add: What gives an endeavor vibrancy can never be planned because it is unpredictability itself. The unknown is the lifeblood of existence. </span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even though you sometimes resist authority, you also respect anything and anyone who can teach you. You'll drop all resistance to road signs, guides and instructions. Life is made easier by simply following the directions. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your powers of observation are so dialed in that you're verging on the telepathic. Hearing what other people are thinking is not the hard part. The hard part is verifying your correctness in the matter. <p>Updated: Fri Jul 16, 2021</p> 9613b3ac5c27cddef0eabe858d82390b Ocean Voyage of the Soul for 07/15/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/ocean-voyage-of-the-soul Thu, 15 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The sun trine Neptune in water signs recalls an ocean voyage of the soul. Were you to reach your desired destination in an instant, beamed in like a Star Trek voyager, it would be an empty and meaningless transport, readying you for nothing. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Sea legs are earned; equilibrium is a skill; the transportation is transformation.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Lethargy goes against your fire sign nature, and it is quite off-putting to behold lazy movements and apathetic moods. A vital physicality is like a religion to you. Your posture alone is an inspiration to others.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Look to the horizon. Excellent events gallop toward you like cavalry to save the day. If there are buildings and walls (or relationships and responsibilities) in the way, look out anyway. Can't see the horizon? Invent the horizon. <p>Updated: Thu Jul 15, 2021</p> affd79a90b7cc29b5e45e01122f3807f Vulnerability and the Virgo Moon for 07/14/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/vulnerability-and-the-virgo-moon Wed, 14 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>No matter how tight the mechanics may be, the machine can only work when there is a certain amount of space between the parts. Otherwise, they wouldn't move at all. However miniscule, the small gaps that make the machine imperfect and vulnerable are exactly what allow it to work. The Virgo moon suggests that <i>flaws are essential to perfection.</i></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Doing your homework sounds like a chore, whereas investigating, researching and questing for answers sounds like an adventure. What you call an activity will contribute greatly to your mood about it.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Speaking what's on your mind is a risk that might not accomplish exactly what you want it to, but if you end up expressing what another person feels but cannot explain, you've done something valuable.<p>Updated: Wed Jul 14, 2021</p> 23467f33bb93e548cb6d8263400af080 Venus and Mars Meetup for 07/13/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/07/21/venus-and-mars-meetup Tue, 13 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Venus and Mars in Leo represent the Shakespearian "loved and lost" conundrum. Romance hogs center stage, stealing focus from other fortifying experiences. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Aren't there some journeys of the heart safely skipped, in favor of freeing energy for other worthy pursuits? In some instances, "never to have loved at all" is akin to dodging a bullet. </span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll be most comfortable (and productive!) with as few commitments as possible on a loose schedule. Having to be certain places at certain times will limit the natural flow of your energy. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your curiosity ignites, and each clue entices you to the next, only to find, after following a dozen or so leads, this is a mystery that only seems to deepen. <p>Updated: Tue Jul 13, 2021</p>
