July 4 is all about fireworks and family, baseball and barbecues. More than that, it's the chance to celebrate the beginning of a great nation, and our brave and free forefathers. While you're at it, why not celebrate freedom in every form, including political, religious, cultural, artistic and personal.
Here's one lucky thing you can do this Independence Day in the name of freedom.
There's something you want that you've all but given up on. And yet you are one good negotiation away from the prize. Channel your signmate (and the principle author of the Declaration of Independence) and keep trying. Yes, Thomas Jefferson was famous for his brains, charm, influence and powers of negotiation.
You have a right to feel how you feel. Your passions will be challenged, and you may decide to go about expressing them in a different way in the weeks to come -- which will be much easier to figure out if you admit and embrace your feelings instead of denying they exist.
You've always been a free thinker and now it becomes even more important to you to make your own way intellectually. Unbound to the opinions of your parents or peers, you will choose your own thought trains and ride them to the destination of your choosing.
Your sign is known for patriotism and you are compelled to be of service to your country, your community and your family. You don't find restriction in service -- instead it opens you up to opportunity. The more you give, the more options you have to choose from. That's why service to you is an act of freedom.
The Moon is in your sign all day and you'll be sparkling brighter than, well, a sparkler! Flirt and be seen. You'll be the life of the party. Don't worry so much about paying back every compliment and returning every nicety. Soak it up and give 'em the show they want -- that's payment enough.
The evening belongs to you as the Moon in your sign heightens your emotional reach. You have a way of touching people and making them feel special. Knowing your attention means so much to others should make you feel pretty powerful. And you are free to spread the love as you wish.
You like having many different relationships -- some platonic, some romantic, and some familial or professional -- as you realize that it's too much for one person to fulfill every role you may need. You can always cast those roles too. Choosing your company is a freedom you'll exercise often in the weeks to come.
Your signmate, the Founding Father John Adams said that, "Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty." And yet what a lot -- if not most – of what people have is owned by banks. Devise a financial plan that will get you out of debt and allow you to someday own what you have free and clear.
This is made easier by having the right papers in place. Resolve to get yourself a passport if you don't have one already. And it's about time you listed, once again, all of the places you'd like to see in this lifetime. You're free to roam!
Your signmate is the Founding Father Ben Franklin who said, "Games lubricate the body and mind." Play games with family and friends today. The spirit of good-natured competition is alive in you, and amidst all of the fun you'll get smarter, healthier and form sweet , strong bonds with loved ones.
This year you are lucky when you exercise your freedom to associate with whomever you like, regardless of the approval or understanding of others. And you can give these relationships the time, energy and other resources you feel is appropriate. You're in charge.
PISCES: Be Truthful.
Your signmate, the Founding Father and first President of the United States George Washington was famous for telling the truth, even when it was difficult. And though the story about the cherry tree may be a myth, you'll still benefit from a bit of honesty, especially in regards to your true feelings about someone.
