Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of July 2-8, 2012

Cancer (June 21-July 22): It’s a slow build to gain full trust, but you can’t hesitate any longer on giving that last bit, because ironically, that piece will only go into place with blind faith sticking it into position. So, time to take that leap and see where your instincts have led you, as there is only one way you can get to that other side of this rainbow now.

Leo (July 23-August 22): Your world doesn’t have to be as messy as you are, so don’t slack off and think you can just have your minions pick up after you. No, this is the time to get into the trenches, work the elbow grease into a creamy lather, and know all the details of the routines make your life work at maximum efficiency. Remember, knowledge is power.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Forget trying to convince yourself of what that other is all about, because those assumptions are likely to be far off base. Instead, get to the bottom of your issues by facing them and understanding that romance is about two working at a common goal, not just you dreaming it up and hoping the pieces will fall into place. As you should know by now, love is never that perfect.

Libra (September 23-October 22): You can be as cool as a cucumber, but it won’t stop others from acting a fool. Yes, agreements you’ve signed and sealed will fall apart now, as another will choose to rebel and challenge you. Expect shade to get thrown, and be ready to stay classy despite it all. You know it, seems your devastatingly good looks are just too intimidating for that other.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Talks are going to get more intense and more pointed at a direction you can count on. So, don’t be shy in saying what you need, because this is the time to come clean on what you are really up against, as that other is there to give you what you want. However, chances are you aren’t the only one with a skeleton in the closet, so prepare to give as much as you want to get.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Why hide out? The more you keep your secrets under wraps, the bigger they’ll become. By unleashing them and sharing what you think is a catastrophe, the trauma will dilute. Give those around you more credit, as you are your own worst judge. If you open yourself up, you’ll see your world is truly more sunshine and rainbows than dark skies and fog.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): If you’ve got it, flaunt it! There is no reason to dumb down your accomplishments to make someone else feel less like a loser. After all, you have no reason to apologize to anyone or lower your standards. Modesty is sweet, but not a way to live your life when you’re fabulous.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): You know what your truth is and all you have do is stick to it. Demons will be coming in to try to rock you of your confidence, but if you hold steady and know who you are, then you will come out of this week with a big win and the ability to step farther into your future with a sense of control unmatched.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): It’s easy to be blind with lust. Of course, when you dive deep into something based on just that sort of chemistry, you can start to delude yourself that there is something deeper the longer it goes on. Sure, we all hope for a miracle in matters of the heart, but this time around, just get what you can and enjoy it for what it is if you really don’t want to eff yourself up.

Aries (March 21-April 19): This is the time to get agreements signed and set a new path for yourself, knowing who and what you have to ride along side you. As it goes, teamwork is your ticket now, but before you involve yourself in any partnerships, getting the terms down will be necessary. Although it’s boring, playing it by the rules will be in your best interests now.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Chill out. Get your health in order, detox from the stress, up your immunity and be ready to kick ass in all parts of your life in the coming weeks. Now isn’t the time to be extending yourself, as people pleasing will result in nausea that you won’t be able to shake. Taking on any other obligations other than your own will go deep into your bones in a bad way.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Eat drink and be merry. Throw caution to the wind and see where it lands, as this is the time when seeing what fate is holding in its back pocket will be most exciting. After all, you’ve put in quite a lot of effort and it’s time to see if what you have been playing to win for will have been worth the agony or just another existential crisis.
