Let Your Sun Sign Help Make This Your Sexiest Summer Yet!Read More »from Let Your Sun Sign Help Make This Your Sexiest Summer Yet!
We may already be well into July, but if you're not feeling the heat yet, why not let your Sun sign come up with some brilliant ideas for making this your sexiest summer yet?
ARIES: Change your friendly lineup.
When it's time to have fun, add a new face or two to the usual suspects for some very unusual results. Getting to know new people is exciting; plus, those friends you thought you knew well will feel encouraged to show different facets of their personality.
TAURUS: Try the taboo.
Do that intriguingly racy thing just outside your comfort zone. Maybe it's peeking into a peep show, or perhaps it's dating someone outside your religion. A little naughtiness could elevate your summer to a whole new level.
GEMINI: Go dancing.
Whether you get out with a gaggle of girls, take one special person for some cheek-on-cheek action or brave the discotheque alone, you'll liberate your spirit in the process. It doesn't matter how well you dance. All that matters is that you do it until you're

Last Friday, July 13, saw impulsive Uranus turn retrograde -- a transit that will create a number of shockwaves between now and mid-December! You might feel your desires shift over the coming months ... but that doesn't mean you have to act on them immediately.
Uranus's current retrograde period occurs not only under Pluto's spell, but also during a face-off with Mars. Given all this activity, look for passion to turn explosive!

Expressing yourself is always important in love, but choosing your approach is often just as critical. Contemplate your motivation before acting out.
Are you finding love restrictive? Your need for independence might come with a high price if you act impulsively. One thing Uranus can't stand is limitations imposed by others. You'll want the freedom to make your own choices -- and this might mean

Mercury Retrograde in Leo: Find Your Heart's True PathRead More »from Mercury Retrograde in Leo: Find Your Heart's True Path
Beginning this Saturday, July 14, and continuing through August 7, Mercury is retrograde in the dramatic sign of Leo. However, as the messenger planet moves backward during this 25-day period, you can still take steps to improve your life!
Mercury's retrograde in Leo offers a dutiful reminder that it's time to find your heart's true path. After all, this planet carries plenty of inspiration, while also teaching that what you focus on is what you create. And your Sun sign can help light the way!
Play, romance and children are your biggest joys this summer.

"I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said I was being ridiculous ... everyone hasn't met me yet."
- Rodney Dangerfield
The planet of war, Mars, entered Libra, the sign of peace and balance, on July 3. It's easy to understand why this pairing might be a detrimental match. After all, Mars likes to tangle -- in a very direct fashion, no less -- while Libra prefers to keep things nice and avoid any nasty confrontations. Mars makes things happen pronto; Libra takes its sweet time carefully weighing out every decision. And finally, just as Libra tends to be passive, Mars adores action!
This cosmic pairing is often associated with frustration, repressed anger and passive-aggressive maneuvers. Naturally, passive-aggression often leads to internalizing anger ... which in turn leads to imagining that everyone hates you!

Whenever I think of heat -- as many of us surely do throughout July -- I also sometimes think of people getting a little hot under the collar. External heat can sometimes lead to internal overheating, so this month I'd like to share a "many blessings" meditation that can help cool down any complicated situation -- past and/or present.
Firstly, find a cool and quiet place where you will not be disturbed for at least ten minutes. Once you've done this, get yourself comfortable by either sitting or laying down, with your back straight and your

A work colleague of yours has been treated unfairly by management, and your knowledge of the situation exceeds what others know. Will you help your bruised co-worker and reveal the truth, or look out for number one and remain quiet?
Aries is competitive and likes moving up the ladder; at the same time, they prefer a victory that comes after a fair fight. In professional matters, they can always be counted on to speak the truth as they see it.
Taurus will keep their own counsel and wait to see which way the wind blows. They may offer behind-the-scenes support, but they're also less likely to be proactive with public condemnation.
Gemini will be tricky to pin down if asked for support. They won't act the role of hero until they're certain they won't do themselves any damage.
Cancer is regularly swayed by their emotions and will feel inclined to back up their co-worker. On the other hand, they're ambitious, so they may end up disappearing into their shell until they see which way the tide
