While the summertime parade marches on, our resident astrologer shares what might be in the stars for you.
by Nancy Koan
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are famous for their sensitivity, but that works against the crab when they keep looking for danger in every corner. The Venus and Mars conjunction on the 13th encourages strengthening boundaries, but the full moon on the 22nd is a reminder of just how safe you are.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Shake that wild mane and strut your tail, but not until the 22nd when the sun hits your sign. Until then you might take in a movie at Sag Harbor Cinema and learn to appreciate a slower pace. Preserving that energy will pay off big-time in August.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Even though it’s the height of Hamptons summer, there may be sweet whisperings about work and career. The new moon on the 9th favors your rise, and guess what else? A secret admirer may soon make himself known. Shy virgin, you’re not!
Libra (September 23–October 23)
Libra is so much about justice, yet on the 13rd, you might experience jealousy among some of your crowd. Don’t sweat it unless you’re in the sauna at Gurney’s. Stay cool and let your innate balance calm the green-eyed monster of lesser souls.
Scorpio (October 24–November 21)
Mars’ dance into Virgo on July 29th asks that you tone down your dramatic tendencies. Passion is fun, but staying cool speaks to having a relationship based on authentic friendship rather than exhausting soapy operas. Think lapping waves, not tsunami.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Normally, you can see many sides to a problem and the new moon on the 9th will help illuminate the truth even more. On the 28th, as Jupiter moves back into Aquarius, it’s like you’ve got a crystal ball. Celebrate your insights at The Palm’s bar.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Nothing stirs a goat like the tinkle of coins and the sweet smell of success. July 9th’s new moon meetings will go well, so book those reservations for Nick and Toni’s. You’re ascending the mountain; now get ready to plant your flag.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Some conflicting issues could arise from the 9th to the 13th. You usually keep your head above the fray, but with a retrograde in Jupiter, it might be a perfect time to hide away in Shelter Island, just long enough for the fog to clear.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Fish swim, birds fly, but love stuff won’t be great this July. Instead, friends will surround you with support and work problems will have less bearing on happiness as you frolic in your natural marine habitat with a school of pals who “get” you.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Fireworks of fun are in store for you this month. You’ll be seeing long-lost friends and making nicey-nice with your family, too. It’s possible you may cut some ties on the 29th. No one wants to lose a sexy ram friend, so let them down easy.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Holy cow, we see love! We’re talking the one or as close as it comes. Venus and Mars’ waltz on the 13th is delicious; and on July 21st, you and your once-in-a-lifetime match will stroll right into midsummer’s sunset. Promise.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
With a Venus retrograde, your friendships may be challenged. That’s not easy for a talkative Gemini. Discuss things over a lobster roll and you’ll see how fences can be mended. Add some Long Island rosé and by month’s end, all will be forgiven.
