Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of July 15-21, 2013

Cancer (June 21-July 22): It would be a lovely world if all that you wanted came after you, like it has in the past. However, this new phase requires a more assertive approach to win. After all, the stakes are bigger and why wait for only scraps to quibble over? If you want the whole pie, make your hunger the motivation!

Leo (July 23-August 22): If you’re truly smitten, you know that there’s nothing your honey can say that will make you flinch. However, if they start to press buttons you thought were no longer there, you might just find there is no way to keep a lid on it. The good news is that if they want you, they won’t care about whatever you’re hiding, but you just might have a minor breakdown nonetheless.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): This is one of those weeks filled with a lot of sweet and sour moments. Seems friendship and romance will be pitted against each other, and both will do anything to win. While you’ll benefit from kind favors, the down side is that the pleasantries aren’t so genuine, as they will be about winning. So, keep perspective when it comes to those close to you now.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Weird values you were raised with will come back to haunt you. While you accept there were lots of lovely ideals in there, there were also a lot more conservative thoughts you have long let go. However, those issues somehow always come back to haunt you. This week is, again, one of those times, leaving you the choice of ultimately educating or evacuating.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Leave your mind as open as possible, because when it comes to dealing with all the people that want a piece of you, you are going to have to think in a less rigid way. After all, not everyone out there is a snake, but if you think in that way, you will be the one losing out. If anything, realize nothing now has to be that serious.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Rules can hold you back, so don’t be that person that uses them as your excuse. This is your time to walk to the beat of a different drummer, because how you express yourself and the intensity with which you emit those feelings has a major effect on others. You’re the sign of spirituality — understand that this is the week to start your own cult.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): It’ll hardly matter what could go wrong in your life now, because all the important things will be in place. So, take the opportunity to enjoy and grow in areas that you already know work for you. Otherwise, if you keep trying to bang your head against a brick wall, you’ll only break yourself down and what will that do for you? Nothing.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Be patient and learn to balance your intuition with your logic. If you can take a little piece of both and work though the daily rigors of life with your baby, you will find that middle ground. Not all relationships can be equal in every way, but if you can accept there are certain areas in which you excel and other areas in which they will, then you will be one step closer to harmony. Hooray!

Pisces (February 20-March 20): You’ll feel so happy this week; you’ll be one of those people that bitter freaks will hate to be around. While some of those people will be “friends,” do realize that underneath it all, you are inspiring them. So, don’t feel the need you have to hide what you have, because you’ve earned every minute of it and when it comes down to it, happy people are a fact of life.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Minor setbacks are going to plague you, like waking up and finding a flat tire or all the shampoo missing from the bottle. Whatever the situation, don’t let it be a buzz kill and just dig deeper to push ahead beyond those frustrating little details. Nothing has to be so severe, so don’t make it out to be. Drama will only beget real disasters now.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You will have to say “Yay” or “Nay” to an offer that will be put on the table now. Despite the pressure, don’t fear going inside yourself and being selfish about your needs. However, don’t force yourself to make any decisions either. After all, if you know your value, you will understand you do have the upper hand.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Look around, because there are loads of opportunities around you and all you have to do is point one out. The problem will be that superficially, not all will be so picture perfect, but understand that will hardly mean a thing. So, don’t be shortsighted and let yourself be hypnotized by what’s pretty, because ultimately, that’ll get ugly fast.
