DAY AFTER TOMORROW’S
THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2019
RHYMES WITH ORANGE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You
may feel a great deal of pressure
in the fact that someone is com-
ing to you for answers, but you
can relax about this. You don’t
have to know anything special.
The best you can do is hold up a
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Minding your own business may
sound like a bossy directive, but
it’s actually a path to freedom
and increased energy. If you’re
careful not to make things about
you that needn’t be, you’ll have
more energy for your own enjoy-
WIZARD OF ID
ROSE IS ROSE
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In
every relationship there comes
a time when one or both parties
needs to recalibrate. If you’re pay-
ing attention and making small
adjustments along the way, this
shouldn’t be too big of a deal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). There’s someone behind the
scenes who has the power to
implement or block your plan.
This person may not be directly
or officially the authority but
nonetheless possess influence
that outsizes his or her role.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Maybe, on a planet hurtling 1,000
miles an hour through space,
control is largely an illusion. But
it’s a sorely need one. Create it for
another person today and you’ll
experience ease and gratitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Your self-esteem is a fickle metric.
Just remember that it is, after all,
just an opinion. Even so, if being
around a person seems to have
a consistently negative influence
on your self-esteem, just leave.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
don’t need to know everything
about the subject at hand be-
cause you’re going to specialize
and get really terrific at one part
of the puzzle. Narrow your focus.
You’ll learn best when you learn
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Point everyone toward solving
your problem, and then you
won’t be working on it alone.
The people around you may not
exactly jump into helping mode,
but the mental wheels will turn.
This is a start.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Invite
that highest iteration of your
mental process to take charge
and you’ll receive a vision. The vi-
sion is of you living your best life
— or at least this is one possible
version of it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
want to agree to something, but
agreement isn’t just saying yes.
Agreement becomes action and
then habit, and before you know
it, the agreement is a lifestyle.
Think it over and through.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Can
you improve things by transfer-
ring responsibility to someone
more capable, knowledgeable
or lucky? Not really. Not today,
anyway. Or rather, it’s costly and
possibly lazy, whereas a DIY
approach will bring you good
THURSDAY’S BIRTHDAY (July
18). Your cosmic birthday gift will
be an extremely useful one: You’ll
have an uncanny knack for un-
derstanding and modifying your
own moods, making it possible
to change your emotional state
at will. Keep researching your
wishes. It’s how you’ll find dream
situations to plug into, and things
happen quickly from there.
Sagittarius and Virgo adore you.
Your lucky numbers are: 5, 42, 35,
11 and 13.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The
“why” question is most helpfully
directed from you to you. It is
not a good question to ask of the
people on your team because it’s
usually an accusation. Move on to
the “how” and “what” questions.
