It’s June 25, the one day a year I read my horoscopes.
Looking back at last year’s birthday horoscopes, the results were mixed. Somehow. Not sure what victory Holiday Mathis was expecting in July. Sally Brompton’s “total success” proved elusive. But everyone said to moderate emotion, and that generally worked out well. No one made huge, specific predictions last year. Somehow.
This year? Holiday Mathis continues to go out on more limbs than other folks — except Jeraldine Saunders, who predicts a wild goose chase. Somehow. But who can complain? The stars have told an 89-year-old, soothsaying former Love Boat cruise director that I should watch out for a wild goose chase. Who am I to dismiss their goose?
Holiday Mathis: “You’ll have a strong sense of purpose. You’ll live where you fit in, and you’ll enjoy your lifestyle. July brings a chance to help your loved ones, and you’ll make a remarkable difference. In September, you’ll learn the ropes in some way. By November, you’ll start to cash in on your experience. October is filled with romance. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 2, 3, 39 and 18.”
Jeraldine Saunders: “You’re likely to sail through the next several months on calm waters, especially where business, career and job are concerned. You possess ample energy and should use it wisely. If you work hard, don’t be surprised if you receive an opportunity for advancement in September as a reward. During November, you could become overly competitive when ambitions for material success kick in, so hold off on major decisions or commitments. In December and January, you may get caught up in a wild goose chase and are prone to overextending yourself financially or romantically. Life may offer you a chance to make permanent improvements to your health and happiness next April.”
Sally Brompton: “Success will be yours if you focus on what you are passionate about and don’t waste time on what other people say you should be doing. Always follow what your inner voice tells you – it’s your guide to getting the most out of life.”
Jacqueline Bigar: “Happy Birthday! This year you make a major change involving your personal and/or domestic life. You have been weighing the pros and cons of a matter that has been making you sad. Finally, discussions can happen. If you are single, you might be up for a change of pace. This year could find you meeting someone significant to your life history. If you are attached, an open exchange between you and your partner will lead to solutions. Recognize the role that finances play in your interactions. Become more organized and disciplined, and you only can gain. Take good care of yourself. VIRGO can be critical, but he or she evokes a response from you.”
Phil Booth: “Obstacles have been piling up and impeding your way forward in regard to an essential process you are working on. The coming year will be a lot more constructive and reassuring than what you are generally used to. A certain upsetting issue that’s been up in the air will come safely down to the ground and put your mind at ease.”
CafeAstrology.com: “A higher purpose to your life is what you seek this year, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. You tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to ‘get away from it all’ — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive — even mysterious — persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life.”
Linda Black: “Confidence and optimism arise to flavor the coming year, generating new opportunities for leadership in July. Keep providing great service. Meditate or lose yourself in nature when you need a peace break. Your network keeps expanding, with love and attention. Go for balance, health and happiness. Greet people with an open hand. Listen carefully to your partner’s crazy suggestion. Pay attention to details, as they’ll be useful. Facilitate creativity in others.”
Georgia Nicols: “Canadian senator, humanitarian, author and retired general, Romeo Dallaire (1946) shares your birthday. You are imaginative and original. You’re also aware of what you’re dealing with, including your limitations, which is why you succeed. However, it’s important for you to have the respect and support of others. In turn, you are nurturing to others as well. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new.”
Eugenia Last: “Concentrate on home, family and creativity. Develop your environment to suit the needs of those you love. The more activity you can drum up in familiar places, the better you will do. You may not enjoy change, but it will improve your life. Apply pressure where it’s needed to reach your goals. Your numbers are 3, 8, 15, 22, 30, 42, 46.”
