JULY 2018


StarScoop: The 14th Dalai Lama was born July 6, 1935, under the nurturing sign Cancer. His natal chart also boasts strong Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Pisces influences. Perhaps his presence and spiritual influence on the planet are due to the luminaries and planets in his natal chart being so well positioned to one another.

In an area of his chart that represents communication, teaching and spirituality, he has a humble and majestic physical persona that inadvertently commands attention. This is due to his natal Venus Mercury connection allowing him to speak with eloquence, grace and dignity to those from all walks of life.

The Dalai Lama has Saturn sitting in Pisces at the top of his chart opposite his natal Moon and Neptune, and very well positioned to his natal Sun, Jupiter and Uranus. This in itself makes this spiritual guide a prominent figure on the planet. His insight and vision coupled with realism is finely tuned and should not be dismissed in vain for selfish gain.

I believe the Dalai Lama can make a difference when it comes to the overall consciousness of the planet. Through his teachings and wisdom, he may be the one person who can help defer the divisive tailspin that faces the human race. Now all we have to do is get the majority to join in, listen and live life in such a way that we consciously benefit our planet and all living creatures.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ask tough questions and make choices that are thought out and offer peace and compromise. What you gain will be based on what you do and the example you set.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Excess will be your downfall. Don’t give in to bad habits or people who are poor influences. Simplify your life and choose to be disciplined instead of indulgent.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do the work yourself. How much time and effort you are willing to put into a project will make a difference to the outcome as well as to your budget.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t limit what you can do. Opportunities come into your life in order for you to take advantage of them. Don’t sit back; make your move. Romance is highlighted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Channel your energy wisely. You can accomplish a lot, or you can let anger and emotional indulgence take over. Have a plan in place and follow it through to completion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let our intuition take over. Follow your heart and make plans based on the way you feel. Traveling, attending a reunion or visiting familiar places will improve your life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your energy where it counts the most. Refuse to let demanding people control what you can and cannot do. Speak on your own behalf, and make improvements to your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get involved in something different. Travel to places that offer something unique. Cultural events will change the way you view life as well as the way you live.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Discussing your plans will lead to interference from someone who likes to meddle in your affairs. Opt to do your own thing, and allow others the same privilege.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put more time into home and family. Making changes to the way or where you live will make your life easier and your finances less stressful. Romance will improve your life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be realistic and refuse to let little annoyances lead to an argument that can damage an important relationship. Don’t make an impulsive move or take part in indulgent behavior.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Creativity, love and projecting what you want to accomplish will be satisfying and grab the attention of people impressed by what you have to offer. Opportunity knocks.
