Horoscope: Acting on your feelings can inspire trust and growth

Thursday, July 14: The temptation to change your mind is likely misguided. Teamwork wants to be the way to go. It was July 14, 1969, that the film “Easy Rider” opened. Directed by Dennis Hopper (who also played a lead role) and also featuring Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson, it changed Hollywood cinema forever.

Friday, July 15: One relationship or more is the cause of considerable frustration. Be honest and allow others room to do the same. Judged by many to be the best ever, Dutch painter Rembrandt, was born on July 15, 1606.

Saturday, July 16: Today, the sun is conjunct Mercury, which means we are already in the middle of the current Mercury cycle, which started on May 21. If you initiated a new project when the Mercury cycle started, now it’s time to bring it to life. The first paper money, a European banknote, was issued on July 16, 1661, in Stockholm, Sweden.

Sunday, July 17: Venus enters Cancer tonight. It feels good in Cancer, since both Venus and Cancer speak the same language: that of emotions. This doesn’t mean it’s all warm and cozy. In Cancer, Venus squares Jupiter in Aries (early in the transit) and Pluto in Capricorn (later on). There is some feistiness – but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Acting upon our feelings creates an energy of honesty which facilitates trust and growth. The most educated head of state, Angela Merkel, former chancellor of Germany, turns 68 today.

Monday, July 18: Today, Mercury opposes Pluto in Capricorn, and two days later, the sun follows suit. Pluto oppositions are always intense because they bring to our immediate attention things that have been bottled up. When something that has been bottled up screams for release, our first reaction is to fight against it. That’s why Pluto transits are associated with power struggles. When Pluto opposes Mercury and the sun, notice where your resistance is triggered, what makes you angry, what makes you feel powerless. This resistance will point to something very important about yourself – this is where Pluto is asking you to level up, and become stronger and more resilient. On July 18, 1976, in Montreal, Nadia Comăneci became the first gymnast in Olympic Games history to score a perfect 10.

Tuesday, July 19: Mercury moves from emotional Cancer into proud Leo. Communications are confident, if sometimes a bit too flamboyant. The first women’s rights convention was held on July 19, 1848, at Seneca Falls, N.Y.

Wednesday, July 20: It’s the third-quarter moon in Aries today, which means the sun in Cancer is 90 degrees from the moon in Aries. And the suggestion of a standoff is supported everywhere in the solar system. So lay low and keep an eye out for what unfolds. Happy birthday number 51 to Canadian actor Sandra Oh. Winner of two Emmys and a Golden Globe (for “Killing Eve”), she first caught our attention on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
