We miss Rodney Dangerfield

Why we miss Rodney Dangerfield
With my old man I got no respect. I asked him, “How can I get my kite in the air?” He told me to run off a cliff.
I went to a massage parlor. It was self-service.
My wife only has sex with me for a purpose. Last night she used me to time an egg.
It’s tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she won’t drink from my glass!
Last night my wife met me at the front door. She was wearing a sexy negligee. The only trouble was, she was coming home.
A girl phoned me and said, ‘Come on over. There’s nobody home.’ I went over. Nobody was home!
A hooker once told me she had a headache.
If it weren’t for pickpockets, I’d have no sex life at all.
I was making love to this girl and she started crying. I said, ‘Are you going to hate yourself in the morning?’ 
She said, ‘No, I hate myself now.’
I knew a girl so ugly… they use her in prisons to cure sex offenders.
My wife is such a bad cook, if we leave dental floss in the kitchen the roaches hang themselves.
I’m so ugly I stuck my head out the window and got arrested for mooning.
The other day I came home and a guy was jogging, naked. I asked him, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘Because you came home early.’
My wife’s such a bad cook, the dog begs for Alka-Seltzer.
I know I’m not sexy. When I put my underwear on I can hear the Fruit-of-the-Loom guys giggling.
My wife is such a bad cook, in my house we pray after the meal.
My wife likes to talk to me during sex; last night she called me from a hotel.
My family was so poor that if I hadn’t been born a boy, I wouldn’t have had anything to play with.
It’s been a rough day. I got up this morning and put a shirt on and a button fell off. I picked up my briefcase, and the handle came off. I’m afraid to go to the bathroom.
I was such an ugly kid! When I played in the sandbox, the cat kept covering me up.
I could tell my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and radio.
I was such an ugly baby that my mother never breast fed me. She told me that she only liked me as a friend.
I’m so ugly my father carried around a picture of the kid that came with his wallet.
When I was born, the doctor came into the waiting room and said to my father, “I’m sorry. We did everything we could, but he pulled through anyway.”
I’m so ugly my mother had morning sickness AFTER I was born.
I remember the time that I was kidnapped and they sent a piece of my finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof.
Once when I was lost, I saw a policeman, and asked him to help me find my parents. I said to him, “Do you think we’ll ever find them?” He said, “I don’t know kid. There’s so many places they can hide.”
My wife made me join a bridge club. I jump off next Tuesday.
I’m so ugly, I once worked in a pet shop, and people kept asking how big I’d get.
I went to see my doctor. “Doctor, every morning when I get up and I look in the mirror I feel like throwing up. What’s wrong with me?” He said: “Nothing, your eyesight is perfect.”
I went to the doctor because I’d swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills. My doctor told me to have a few drinks and get some rest.
Some dog I got. We call him Egypt because in every room, he leaves a pyramid. His favorite bone is in my arm. Last night he went on the paper four times – three of those times I was reading it.
One year they wanted to make me a poster boy — for birth control.
My uncle’s dying wish was to have me sitting in his lap; he was in the electric chair.


World’s Longest & Highest Glass Bottom Bridge

Bridge Glass

China Set To Open

World’s Longest And Highest Glass-Bottom Bridge

A bridge too far? China set to open the most terrifying walkway in the world, stretching a quarter-of-a-mile across a canyon at a dizzying height of 980ft… and it’s made of GLASS

  • The Zhangjiajie skywalk is set to open in July hovering over a 980ft drop
If you are terrified of heights you would be advised to stay well away from China’s latest attraction.
The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon skywalk will hover over a nail-biting 980ft drop and is set to smash records to be the world’s longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge.
The dizzying footbridge, which spans between two cliffs in the national park of Zhangjiajie, will be open to brave tourists in July.

Scotch with 2 drops of Water…

Scotch with two drops of water.

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water.  As the bartender gives her the drink she says, ‘I’m on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it’s today.’

The bartender says, ‘Well, since it’s your birthday, I’ll buy you a drink.  In fact, this one is on me.’  
As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, ‘I would like to buy you a drink, too.’

The old woman says, ‘Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.’

‘Coming up,’ says the bartender.
 As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, ‘I would like to buy you one, too.’

The old woman says, ‘Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.’

‘Coming right up,’ the bartender says.  As he gives her the drink, he says, ‘Ma’am,  I’m dying of curiosity.  Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?’

The old woman replies, ‘Sonny, when you’re my age, you’ve learned how to hold your liquor.  Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.’

Your sweetie says, ‘Let’s go upstairs
And make love,’ and you answer,
‘Pick one; I can’t do both!’

Your friends compliment you
On your new alligator shoes
And you’re barefoot.

A sexy babe catches your fancy
And your pacemaker opens the garage door,

Going bra-less
Pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

You don’t care where your spouse goes,
Just as long as you don’t have to go along.

You are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police .. 

‘Getting a little action’
Means you don’t need to take any fiber today.

‘Getting lucky’ means you find your car
In the parking lot.

An ‘all nighter’ means not getting up
To use the bathroom.


You are not sure these are jokes?

If My Body Was A Car!

If My Body Was a Car! 
This is just too funny – scary how true it is!!! 
If my body was a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I’ve got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull… 
But that’s not the worst of it. 

My headlights are out of focus and it’s especially hard to see things up close 

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather. 

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins. 

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently. 

But here’s the worst of it,

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter, 
Either my radiator leaks or My Exhaust Backfires!

2015 July Horoscopes

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the border; you may have influences from both houses of those signs.

Outlines are longer versions; consists of every possible details of everyday and based on three parts of each sign: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Deccan; that is, any of three divisions of 10° within a sign of the zodiac.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aries: March 21 — April 19

Epigram: Because late June`s thrilling developments are a continuation of some you`ve been discussing for ages, perhaps since last year, your focus is finalizing plans. What you hadn`t anticipated were substantial changes in your work or lifestyle. While these may be related to existing discussions or something new, they`re both timely and inevitable. What you learn dealing with unsettling questions regarding your priorities are as worthwhile as they are challenging. By July`s close, you`re happier, with your life and yourself, then for ages.

Outline: You`re the one who has to get the ball rolling on the 1st, but once you do you`ll be glad you did! There`s a lot going on, and you`re at the center of it. The fine print is a killer on the 6th and 7th, so don`t sign anything or agree to anything legally binding unless you have a lawyer by your side. Okay, well maybe that`s a little extreme, but you get the idea. Women become really important in your life on the 14th and 15th, and it would be a good idea to run your bright ideas past one of them before you get started. Don`t miss the chance to learn from those golden words of wisdom! Bad habits are hard to break on the 20th and 21st, but getting into a new routine will help a lot. If you don`t see the same people or go to the same places, it`s not so hard to set a healthy new schedule. You have a deep desire to get even with someone who`s wronged you on the 25th and 26th, but it`s better to let bygones be bygones. Nothing is accomplished with negative emotions.

Fame, acclaim and rewards come your way in early July, thanks to a supportive Full Moon. If you`re looking for a job, you will land a fantastic position that calls on your ingenuity and creativity. Do you already have a job you enjoy? Then you`ll move up the ladder of success. Be sure to celebrate this special time with someone you love. A private little celebration is in order. Make reservations at your favorite restaurant and plan to see a show afterward. Striking a healthy balance between home and work will be challenging mid-month. Don`t neglect your relatives for the sake of your job. The New Moon on the 16th is perfect for family fun, like a reunion or group outing. A second Full Moon falls at the end of July, warning of burnout. Try not to spread yourself too thin. It might be a good idea to turn down a couple of invitations.

If you need to designate certain days for `blue sky thinking` then consider July 1st as offering excellent cosmic conditions. In the run into the Full Moon (2ND) accenting, for you, career issues, focusing on the developments you`d like to see before September should prove a useful exercise. Note too that between 20th and 23rd (as the Sun moves from Cancer to Leo), you could put financial affairs in order. This may well be promoted by developments taking place between 6th and 8th. It`s then that through a colleague you could be given useful information about plans for later in the year. Coupled with your determination to do things differently (and obviously so between 9th and 14th), it seems likely that you`ll be ready to seize an opportunity. True, there may be more administrative hurdles to cross than you imagine (from 25th), yet it might also be that in joining forces with someone highly experienced in financial matters, you could make gain – provided that you master details.

Career & Finance: The focus this month is on repairing burned bridges, and you truly haven`t taken down all of them. Some are only scorched. Not all would be about THAT type of alienation, perhaps it means just remembering good advice from someone incredibly helpful at the beginning of your career (this includes how much they encouraged you to remind you why). July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd are opportune times to network and to widen your circle of associates and friends who will play a big part in future successes. Your lucky day this month is the 7th. If drifting around the edge of talking about something, let it out. The things you can`t talk about remain a big mystery when you don`t want it to. If job hunting send resumes and strike gold. Expect a few far-reaching changes on July 13th and 14th that result in opportunities for growth. July 22nd and 23rd accent creativity which can also mean a stimulating urge to express something to an audience. Eagerly await the soon-to-come praise. The month ends in the discovery that you didn`t throw an opportunity away and you have a second chance to make a comeback. You`ll make strides in August, but have a plan.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Taurus: April 20 — May 20

Epigram: Previously you might have had good reason to battle potential alterations in your domestic or professional life; but now, after sudden and rather wonderful changes, you`re far more interested. Be open about your questions, since discussions will be as informative as they are lively. Complications in the process of organizing things mean going through several versions. However, with each comes insights and better versions of plans. It`s hard work, but by early August, when things comes together, it will have been worth it.

Outline: Are you taking the economics of the situation into account on the 1st? If it seems like everything boils down to money, it`s because it does! If you`ve got some to spare, why not hand it out? Your best buds are there for you on the 11th, 12th, and 13th, and you don`t have to worry about pinky swearing in order for them to keep your secrets. Whatever`s on your mind, you can trust them with it. A few moments of self-indulgence feels super-decadent on the 17th and 18th, but you deserve it. Have that extra slice of cake or splurge on a new phone. The only limits you have to abide by are the ones you set for yourself. You`re extremely jealous and/or protective of a close friend or lover on the 25th and 26th, but don`t let that green-eyed monster come between you. Are you absolutely sure you have the whole story? Get to the very bottom of things before you make accusations you can`t take back. You see things from a totally original perspective on the 29th and 30th, which puts you in a great position to get what you want. The sky really is the limit!

Early July is ideal for finding beautiful artwork and furniture for your home. Don`t be surprised when a generous relative gives you a gorgeous family heirloom. The Full Moon on the 2nd brings the successful conclusion of a legal matter. You can breathe a huge sigh of relief. Steer clear of an irritable colleague during the first half of the month. You will need this expert`s help sooner than you think. The New Moon on the 16th is perfect for taking a class. If you`re single, you will be sure to find love with one of your fellow students. A former lover will make their way back into your life in late July. Revisiting old times will be fun, but beware of renewing your commitment. A second Full Moon on the 31st forces you to cancel family plans for the sake of work. It really can`t be helped; your office will be terribly short staffed.

On 19th, Venus (your ruling planet) arrives in an area of your solar chart that`s associated with speculation. 2015 is special in that Venus will turn retrograde and return to the `assets` zone of that same chart before making its real move into the `speculation zone` in October. Note that there is real danger of you having your fingers burnt in a speculative venture begun late July. True, it could be that a holiday proves more expensive than you thought (a LOT more). You could perhaps avert real crisis by taking action between 21st and 23rd: setting limits and, maybe, drawing on an insurance policy to defray extra costs. In many ways July should prove a supremely focused financial month. Though July could begin with great optimism, by 14th it may be apparent that matters aren`t running as smoothly as you would like. Diligence, and, maybe, partnership, will surely help. Indeed, it could be that with the support of someone younger, you could `rescue` a situation before end of the month.

Career & Finance: Sometimes we simply have to throw away practical preconceptions and the thought that complex problems need equally complex solutions. The best way could actually be quite simple. Sometimes we look too hard for things that don`t exist and miss the things that do. July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, you have enhanced intuitive reckoning when you look at facts. Here you go, Taurus! Now you won`t miss the most original, diverse, and most valuable data. July 8th and 9th, take advantage of your eloquent and persuasive abilities. Reveal what you`ve discovered when people are most receptive. July 10th is your lucky day this month. If job hunting it is the time to send resumes and ask favours. If July 15th and 16th`s events revolve around groups with social and professional ties you are wise to participate in them now. You are actually planning for future support and encouragement in your long-range objectives. July 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, finish odds and ends. You are going to be busy and having too much on your plate can wear you out, when you need stamina. Next month, life is one big opportunity. Better get in the mindset that you find competition motivating.

Gemini: May 21 — June 20

Epigram: After a lengthy, informative but time-consuming period of personal questioning, you`ve learned a lot, enough you`re eager to make changes. However, you`ve neglected various practical and financial matters or, because of recent decisions, need to make alterations. Thus, eager as you are to pursue your new goals, those practicalities must come first. The process is timely, as it gets you thinking about what, and indeed who, is worth your time. While often the answer`s clear, other situations require serious but ultimately profitable reflection.

Outline: Do you really think you`re out of the race? You get a boost of confidence and energy on the 2nd and 3rd that lets you know that, yeah, you may be down, but you`re definitely not out just yet. The 6th and 7th have you questioning your true calling, and you`re having second thoughts about what you really want to be when you “grow up.” It might be time to go back to school or explore new job opportunities. You`re the most flexible, versatile person around on the 13th and 14th, and you can`t help but laugh when people try to make plans. What`s the fun in that?! You thrive on spontaneous moments. Your days on the 20th and 21st are filled with tasks and chores that you`d rather not do, but you really aren`t one to shirk your responsibilities. If you can pass them off to someone else, great! If not, get them done as soon as possible so you can go play. The 27th and 28th are filled with deep, meaningful conversations. It`s a great time to ask questions you`ve always wanted to know the answers to.

The early days of July are ideal for settling debts and obligations. Use the energy of the Full Moon on the 2nd to pay bills, return equipment and keep your commitments. You`ll be very attractive to romance throughout the first half of the month. Use this period to seduce the object of your affection. Beware of spending beyond your means in mid-July, as unexpected expenses will put a crimp in your budget. The New Moon on the 16th is ideal for finding a better job, getting a raise, or finding another source of income. Neither a lender nor a borrower be during the second half of July. You wouldn`t want to spoil a perfectly good friendship over a petty matter like money. A second Full Moon falls on the 31st, forcing you to defend your beliefs to an insensitive neighbour or loved one. Don`t let this bully denigrate your ideas.

July should open with a wave of promise. Though perhaps not entirely sure as to the costs involved, as early as the Full Moon (2nd), plans to expand and invest in leisure could have your full attention. By 7th it may be apparent that boundaries have to be set. Of course, it`s entirely possible that though Venus doesn`t reach the base of your solar chart until 19th, you`ll sense an impending change of current. What may be clear is that you simply have to invest in better quality insurance products and, perhaps, property repair. All this could be sparked by a crisis mid-month. It may be that someone you thought would be fully supportive of your plans is not going to be able to pull their weight. A major rethink may be necessary. The good news is that after the Sun changes signs on 23rd, you could attract exactly what you need, – even if the actual paper-work can`t be put in place until early October. Financially then, considerable focus will be needed in July with the probability of a savings fund being raided.

Career & Finance: In July you could seesaw between feeling and doing nothing and expressing too much. That places you temporarily in a neutral zone, with increased anxiety and then energy is drained into coping tactics. July 2nd and 3rd the Universe may spring pleasant surprises (note the word `pleasant`). Since you don`t want to be ineffective, think things through before you act. Bear in mind that you could be excited at first, but then quickly bored. July 12th is your lucky day. Check the classifieds; you may find something if job-hunting. Send out resumes. If you feel a bit impatient and nervous July 13th and 14th, it could be the uncertainty from problems you haven`t solved. Don`t just worry, solve. React, feel, think, and then make choices. On July 20th, ask the most obvious question. Someone is waiting. The month ends with opportunities to go back and take the lead from a better position and/or find a loophole or stall for time. A heads-up for next month: there are no secrets in a work environment. There`s a middle ground between the need for protection and belief that the plans you keep secret are the ones most likely to succeed.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Cancer: June 21 — July 22

Epigram: Thrilling events, due both to past efforts and the unexpected offers during June`s last ten days, mean rethinking plans, personally and professionally. Discuss existing arrangements and explore the intriguing, promising, and often unexpected options that arise during July`s first half. Don`t rush decisions. Only after the Cancer New Moon, on the 16th, with its accompanying fresh perspective, will things come together. Then, be prepared to move swiftly. Still, organize things so they`re flexible, since what`s good is likely to get even better.

Outline: Are you thinking your life needs a major overhaul? Like ASAP? The 2nd and 3rd are the days that you can really get your life in order, so don`t let a good thing pass you by. Someone else wants to run the show on the 8th and 9th, but guess what? You`re the best leader in the room. Fight for your right to be the one in charge, because everyone benefits from your energy, ideas and organizational skills. You`re super perceptive on the 15th and 16th, so when friends come to you looking for answers, don`t be afraid to tell them how you really feel. There`s an amazing feeling of sensitivity to your honesty, so being too blunt isn`t really a problem. Collaborating on a creative task or an artistic project works out perfectly on the 27th and 28th, but picking the right partner is crucial. Who do you know who complements your style? Who can you work closely with for hours without arguing? This is the kind of person you need on your team. Use your considerable mental power on the 31st to solve a nagging problem. You`ve got this.

Your creative talent will be emphasized in the early days of July. This is wonderful time to write, paint, dance and play music. The Full Moon on the 2nd marks an exciting turning point in a relationship. Your business partner could sign an important client, or your lover will get a great job. If you`re dating someone special, you might choose to move in with your amour. Be wary of subverting your needs for the sake of your partner. You need to assert your will, particularly at mid-month. The New Moon on the 16th is perfect for changing your look. Change the way you wear your hair, get a cosmetic procedure, or update your wardrobe. You`ll get positive feedback on an artistic endeavor during the second half of July. A second Full Moon on the 31st puts an additional strain on a troubled relationship. Think about parting ways from a sarcastic friend who is always putting you down.

It won`t be so surprising if you get into reflective mode after Venus changes signs on 19th. You might then decide it`s time invest in items that have truly practical use. In terms of investment, you could consider utilities. Before then the focus will surely be on luxury items and what leaves you feeling good about your home and nesting place at work. It may be that through a massive clear-out (weekend of 6th-7th) items are sold that release the much needed cash for services and items needed after 19th. It`s from Sunday 12th that you could give serious thought to investing in creative talents (your own in particular). It may be that a useful second revenue stream will open up later in the year but need attention now if it`s to make that delivery. Career developments could shake your financial foundations over 25th and 26th. These could be contributory factors in the need to focus on essential goods and services. Of course, it`s not unusual for those of your sign to consider the creation of an emergency or contingency fund. What you put in place around July 29th could have long term and beneficial consequences.

Career & Finance: In July you overcome any relevant risk-taking aversion to contemplating it with assertiveness, but you do so `in your element.` July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd the accent is on Cancer the Crab`s own sideways special energy that actually has benefits if you can`t move up because of corporate politics or favoritism. In this light, one moves laterally, either in the same company or in a new job. It is less a risk and has benefits if you want a better boss, co-workers and conditions – plus there`s the re-excitement about new challenges. July 6th begins four days when you are at your most innovative. Your lucky day is July 14th and if job-seeking be sure to check the ads and send resumes. July 21st, the more you feel, the more alive you become in the next four days. This is rather coiled-up energy that has been locked up and is now released. You`ve progressed by the end the month if you`ve made some decisions, and a few courageous, even daring, moves. Every moment of first steps is precious. In August, while you`ve got sure momentum going, you have opportunities to go back and have a go at something again.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Leo: July 23 — August 22

Epigram: Inevitably, having to rethink existing arrangements and new, thrilling but life-changing events are disruptive. Still, these are so good you can`t say no. Better yet, these link with exciting but unresolved plans that go back to last year. While dealing with their impact on your life and existing arrangements will take time, instead of rushing the process, do it once and thoroughly. It may take until late July for things to come together. Once they have, you`ll be glad you made the effort.

Outline: Whether or not you have a special occasion to celebrate on the 1st, you can appreciate all of the fireworks going off in every direction. The keyword in your life right now is `explosive` and you have every reason to be excited and enthusiastic about what`s happening around you. Worrying about money can put a screeching halt to the party on the 6th an 7th, but there`s probably an original solution you haven`t thought about yet. Thinking creatively can get you out of all kinds of jams, including solving financial problems and putting your distinctive mark on things, which has endless benefits. Get ready to add lots of people to your friends and followers lists on the 13th and 14th, because it`s primetime for networking midmonth. Even if you don`t form an instant bond with someone, take down their info, because you never know when you might need to ask for a favor. You surround yourself with beauty on the 17th, 18th, and 19th, so don`t be surprised if you have an encounter with a stunning stranger or celebrity of your dreams. All things are possible when you believe they are! Romance is number one on your priority list on the 27th and 28th, so whether you`re looking for love or have already found it, these are the days that sizzle.

Your warmth, generosity and charm draw legions of admirers in the beginning of July. This is a great time to ask for favors, apply for loans, go on first dates and conduct job interviews. The Full Moon on the 2nd brings impressive results from a health program. You have a sexy glow that is impossible to resist. Beware of getting involved in secret deals at mid-month, or your professional relationships will suffer. The New Moon on the 16th is perfect for resting, relaxing and recharging your batteries. Sneak away to a private hideaway with the one you love. If you`re single, you will find romance on this journey. The second half of July gives you a double dose of charisma. It will be virtually impossible to resist your charms. A second Full Moon on the 31st prompts you to make a personal sacrifice for the one you love.

Whilst it`s often thought that the birthday period should be all `good news`, reality suggests something different. In the weeks leading into your special day, it`s common to feel slightly low and even view the coming year with trepidation. It wouldn`t be so surprising if you tuned into this vibration around the Full Moon (2nd) – especially as Saturn has returned to the base of your solar chart. Dissatisfaction with progress could be felt keenly – at least until the Sun reaches your sign on 23rd. With Venus stationing at the very start of one of your financial zones (on 25th) you may decide that what`s needed is a complete change of attitude. True, this could be led by the decision to cut ties. It may be that you feel certain people need to take greater responsibility and that you can`t carry them financially any longer. Determination to build a new and stronger nest egg is also apparent from the First Quarter Moon on July 24th – which could be the optimum moment for self-investing.

Career & Finance: Sometimes emotions can be so strong we have no idea what to do with them and that is the focus this month. July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, inspired with brainpower faster than a computer, you give meaning to those creative and in-depth feelings. Although on a weekend, July 6th is another very productive time when you can formulate plans. There`s also nothing wrong with re-formulating something that you remain passionate about. July 13th through the 15th networking with groups adds punch to the old resume. Don`t underestimate the benefits of getting along with co-workers, either. Give it your all on the 17th, July`s lucky day for you. If job hunting, this is the time to look for opportunities. July 22nd you begin to be in your element, or, in other words, you run on solar power over the next 30 days. You are `in the zone` like an athlete on rocket fuel. You end the month with an elevated spirit. Next month, you channel energy to work hard and plough ahead. If you`ve reached the point of feeling like you and your job aren`t a perfect fit, you`ll be motivated to get to that point.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Virgo: August 23 — September 22

Epigram: By no means are you narrow-minded. Yet you were either unaware of or bypassed certain wonderful ideas when they first came your way. They`ve resurfaced, in a different form but they still involve broadening your horizons via new acquaintances, study or perhaps travel. True, this means altering longstanding habits. Actually this is timely, because Jupiter, planet of growth and good fortune, moves into Virgo in mid-August, beginning a cycle of life-changing experiences. These encounters and activities are getting you ready for what`s next.

Outline: Is anything really impossible? Well, the short answer on the 1st is yes, yes it is. You might be suffering from a lack of motivation or belief, but some things just don`t seem that doable right now. Wait until you`re feeling more confident in yourself and others to do the major stuff on your list. Even though you might have the urge to just push ahead on the 8th and 9th, decisions should be made slowly and carefully. You`re usually the type of person who thinks long and hard before you make a move, so don`t change your style now. You have a real no-nonsense air about you on the 13th and 14th, which is great for school, business, and important personal matters. Your friends might accuse you of being a buzz kill but, hey, you`ve got work to do! You`re quite the perfectionist on the 20th and 21st, but even though you have high standards, there`s got to be someone out there who won`t let you down. So once you find someone who lives up to your mighty expectations, you aren`t about to let them go. You`ve got an itch that you can`t quite scratch on the 25th and 26th, but you won`t take no for an answer. Doing research and investigating are two of your favorite hobbies!

Spending time on solitary pursuits will give July a wonderfully dreamy quality. Take this time to catch up on your reading, commune with nature and connect with your spiritual side. The Full Moon on the 2nd marks an exciting festive occasion. Be sure to wear something special to a party. If you`re in a relationship, your partner will be extra attentive. Are you single? You will meet someone special at this shindig. Meeting social obligations may be difficult at mid-month, because you`re so wrapped up in a romance. The New Moon on the 16th prompts you to go after a cherished dream. This is a great time to change direction if you are unhappy in your career. Even if you do love your job, you will benefit from having an engrossing hobby. A second Full Moon on the 31st brings a health problem to your attention. The sooner you get a check up, the faster you will find relief.

In 2015, Venus moves through a retrograde period (which doesn`t happen every year). This in itself suggests that many will review their financial position. What`s as interesting is that Venus begins this retrograde phase at the very start of your sign and doesn`t make full crossing into Virgo until October 9th. There`s high probability then of you feeling the winds of change more than others. It could be that it`s a financial partnership that is put under tension. It might also be that you spend the next few months considering exactly what involvement you want to have in a partnership – or if it`s run its course. Decision time might appear to come in the days leading into the New Moon (16th). This though may not be the best time to take action – which, for many reasons could be deferred until at least 25th. What may be clear to you is that if you are to work fairly and in harmony, then the `other side` needs to put as much down in down-payment (or time or energy) as you are willing to do. By the end of July high priority will surely be recognition of what was promised – and not yet fulfilled – and when and how progress will be made.

Career & Finance: There`s always room for compromise. You can hang onto visions and values, even soften an approach, and yet still be more assertive. When the month begins you feel freer to be friendly and empathic while asking for what you need and want. You rarely have a problem being clear in issues and this month is no exception. You have the same ability, just have increased confidence. Your intuitions are extraordinarily useful July 8th. When you get a feeling, go with it. July 15th is a pivotal moment. If you have ever felt that you never had the opportunity to go in the direction your talents led you, life begins to change and you do, too. July 18th, the saying goes that you have to know someone to get somewhere. You know them, now network and get in touch with them. Your lucky days this month are the 19th and 20th. If job-hunting, send resumes. You know you`ve done more than your share of favors. Ask on your lucky days. Let people know what you need so they do not have to guess. Charming and assertive, you end the month attracting attention. Stay tuned. August holds even more potential.

Libra: September 23 — October 22

Epigram: For ages you`ve been weighing up potential changes in elements of your domestic or working life but been unsure what to do. Now, a combination of clarity of mind and powerful circumstances bring those chaotic ideas together into a single plan. True, during July you`ll need to do a lot of fine-tuning. It`s worth both the effort and the patience, as this allows you to leave elements of the past firmly behind you and concentrate on building a better way of living.

Outline: Is it fair that you`re getting all kinds of awards, promotions, and upgrades for no apparent reason on the 1st? Well, maybe not, but who are you to look a gift horse in the mouth?! There`s a lot of flirting going on between you and a school mate, co-worker, or sexy stranger on the 4th and 5th, so why not see where it leads? If you already have a significant other, though, don`t do anything behind their back. Make sure everything is on the up and up before you make your move. You have a big urge to gain control on the 10th and 11th, but you know what? You just can`t control some things! You`re about to learn that, but it might be the hard way. Your energy level is through the roof on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, so tackling those big projects you`ve been putting off should be easy right now. Ask for help if you need it, though, because no one expects you to be a superhero! You could learn some troubling news on the 29th or 30th, so be on your toes and get ready to defend yourself if necessary.

Your social life sparkles throughout early July. You`ll have to field several invitations during this busy time. The Full Moon on the 2nd brings the satisfactory conclusion of a domestic matter. You might buy or sell a property, or add to your home`s value with some renovations. Your boss will be very impressed with your work throughout the first half of July, which is gratifying. It`s nice to know your efforts are being appreciated. If you`re out of work, the New Moon on the 16th is an ideal time to find a prestigious position. Be sure to ask a prominent friend to write you a reference. You`ll have more time for solitary pursuits during the second half of July. Take this opportunity to read, write and play music. Expressing your creative side will lift your spirits. A second Full Moon will rise on the 31st, putting strain on a romantic relationship.

Anticipate fast-flowing cash current this month – and in both directions. It could all start with domestic related repair expenses but conclude with costs related to leisure activities and, maybe, exploration of a new revenue stream (end of the month). As likely is a stream of cash flowing toward you but which requires careful scrutiny (effect on tax position?). Note that Mars spends the whole of July moving through your career zone – providing the energy and impetus to confront situations that have been unacceptable and, maybe, leading to promise of extra cash before your birthday. On 19th, Venus (your ruling planet) arrives in the sign of Virgo but begins a retrograde period that means it won`t reach your own sign for some months yet. From the financial perspective this may be indicative of the need to review your general and long-term financial arrangements. It may be that there are pension and tax related matters that could usefully be addressed during this month and next. It`s quite possible too that a change in a partner or close friend`s circumstances (around 26th) will prompt thoughts as to how you could combine your respective entrepreneurial talents.

Career & Finance: Embrace change! It`s here. In July you could be charting a course in a new direction. Whether in your current workplace or in the exploration of something new, you have opportunities for something in which your many talents fuse with your passions. You`ll know it because you feel like your authentic self and time begins to go by differently. Heads up and stay alert on the 8th. Take the plunge on the 15th when chances are better than good, but only do so if you are ready to be 100 percent committed. Bear in mind that if you don`t try something the only guarantee you have is that you`ll stay just where you are. The 20th through the 25th, do some brainstorming and come up with two times the ideas. Your lucky days are the 19th and 20th. The former is a Sunday, but you can still search for employment and get resumes ready. When we look for a new job, lucky days are when we can attract it. You hopefully end the month as someone who learned something about their self that has always been there. Of course everyone else knew it. Now you do; and more good news – in August the excitement continues.

Scorpio: October 23 — November 21

Epigram: An old adage says “choose your battles”. Remember this during July and instead of confronting others about beliefs you disagree with or fighting to avoid changes you regard as unwise, you`ll wait and watch; and in the process, what you learn will make you grateful you sidestepped those pointless conflicts. Better yet, the resulting insights call your attention to a few crucial issues that actually do need attention. Even more, by then you`ll have the knowledge necessary to address these powerfully and effectively.

Outline: When you look around on the 4th and 5th, what do you see? Do you see beauty or imperfection? The thing is, no matter what it is, you`re probably going to want to change something. You have a deep urge to totally rearrange or redecorate your own personal space, but it`s a good idea to start small instead of taking a sledge hammer to the walls! You have a reputation for being sarcastic and using double-entendres, but you`re way better off being honest and straightforward with your words on the 10th and 11th; and if you`re going to tell jokes, make sure they`re rated G, especially if there are young kids or older relatives around. Your home is your sanctuary but there are some challenges to deal with on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. Hmmm. The last thing you want to have to deal with is family squabbles or disagreements among your friends, but you may be the only one who can help. You get a great deal on something big like a car or house on the 29th or 30th, but you don`t have to share your negotiating secrets. Let your friends and relatives think you`re just lucky!

You`ll be given a reward for a job well done in early July; get ready for your close up. The Full Moon on the 2nd marks the arrival of an important document. This arrangement will work heavily in your favor. A power struggle will erupt between you and an instructor on the 6th. Try not to make an enemy of this teacher, as you will need their support sooner than you think. Don`t let a defiant attitude hurt your chances with a potential employer in mid-July. The more cooperative you are, the easier it will be to land a plum position in your desired field. The New Moon on the 16th brings an exciting opportunity to travel, study, or write. It looks as if you will get paid to have fun, which is an even bigger bonus. A second Full Moon on the 31st will force you to scale back your office hours for the sake of family.

It would be normal – at this time of year – for expectations to be high. They could actually get higher still next month; and yes, though Saturn has returned to your sign, you could yet make financial progress. One possibility is through tax rebate mid-month. Or perhaps someone will recognize the efforts you`ve put in over the last eight years and make recompense. It may be that something that was over-looked toward the end of 2014 will be rediscovered mid-month and acted upon by 23rd. It`s then that the Sun arrives at the apex of your solar chart – this year coinciding with Venus changing signs. Join asset management could then demand significant attention. True, it might take until late September for agreements to be reached, but the process of co-operation should begin before month end. Note too that before early August and as Jupiter completes its stay in another of the Fixed signs, Leo, you could yet experience success from investments of time and money that offer a significant base for further investment later in the year.

Career & Finance: July is the opportune time for friendly persuasion because if you originally got a `No` you could get a `Yes` now. You know your audience better and can reshape your message to meet it. Perhaps you need to fill in some gaps of info you left out the first time? Did you ask for their opinions? Ask now. People have them. The first four days of the month are especially favorable times. Communication, however, might be a bit of a bear. Think what you want to say before you say it. Between the 14th and 15th beware of the Delegator/Credit Seizer, especially if you are swamped with work. If not, of course it is an admirable show of team spirit to help someone. However, you-know-who can`t or won`t do the job they are paid to do. Don`t make an enemy; just say a polite “no.” Your time for lucky breaks? Between July 24th and 25th. If job hunting this is the when you can search and send resumes under the best vibes. On July 29th and 30th strong feelings surface and may create a clash of wills. You are wise to direct your passion into positive pursuits. You`ve accomplished a lot by the end of the month. Stay tuned for more progress in August.

Sagittarius: November 22 — December 21

Epigram: As an independent-minded Sagittarius, you`re superb at dealing with most situations on your own. Yet the situations triggered by the series of links between your ruler Jupiter and Uranus, which began last year and climaxed with stunning events in late June have left you with complex decisions to make. These will require advice, from friends, colleagues or, perhaps, experts. This may delay progress and involve tedious details. However, what`s being decided will reshape your life, so it`s worth ensuring plans are wise.

Outline: No one believes in you on the 1st more than you believe in yourself. You definitely have your share of fans, but the self-confidence factor is what gets you to that next level. You feel like you`d lose your head if it wasn`t attached to your body on the 6th and 7th, and due to your scattered-ness, this probably isn`t the best time to try to do anything overly complicated. Stick to those basic tasks until you can figure the rest out. Your intuition is you best guide on the 15th and 16th, so if you need help making a major decision, listen to your inner voice. When it`s quiet, what is it really trying to tell you? Don`t be afraid to follow your own advice! You`re super impatient on the 20th and 21st, but resist the urge to cut in line or push aside an older or weaker person. You may be in a hurry, but you still know right from wrong – don`t you?! Your future doesn`t appear to be as bright as you want it to be as you ponder it on the 25th and 26th but it`s never too late. No one else can tell you what to do. If you want to make a change, go for it!

A wonderful teaching or writing opportunity will fall in your lap at the beginning of July. It looks like you`ll be able to put a creative spin on this endeavor, which makes it even more enjoyable. You`ll get a handsome pay cheque on the 2nd, courtesy of the generous Full Moon. Put some of this windfall toward beautiful furnishings and artwork. If you`ve wanted to update the bathroom or kitchen, now is the time to do it. You`ll be bashful and shy at a social gathering on the 14th, perhaps because you are attracted to one of the guests. The New Moon on the 16th is perfect for expanding your lovemaking repertoire. Ask your partner for suggestions on improving your technique. A second Full Moon on the 31st brings startling news about a relative. You might have to postpone a holiday as a result. Try not to be disappointed. This cancellation will be a blessing in disguise.

As July opens, those around you may be full of ideas as to how financial conditions could be improved. Having made significant investment in the last decade or so, they may now be looking for clear reward – which could arrive before July 6th. It`s possible however that urgent repairs will eat into reserves requiring, around the New Moon on 16th, that a review of joint financial responsibilities takes place. Venus does not have retrograde periods in every year but, in 2015, turns retrograde at the very apex of your solar chart. Though financial developments may not truly affect you until Venus makes its final crossing of this sensitive point in October, it should be clear before the end of July that changes are on the way. It may be that between July and early October is the optimum time for extended travel or for investing in educational courses. Making down-payments and achieving discounts as a result is probable around July 22nd.

Career & Finance: Time is money. “Bottom line it.” People don`t want to hear long, drawn-out scenarios. Think about the top three features and benefits. You can still be creative and original, but just not long-winded about it. Take advantage of your own charm and enthusiasm to seal deals. Got a problem? July 7th you have added insight about how recurring challenges can be solved. This is a good day to set yourself apart as a leader. On July 13th and 14th surfacing tension can rain on your parade. It isn`t as easy to stick to routine. Getting in the groove has morphed into a rut, but rest assured it is only temporary. Sometimes it is okay to assume a low profile position. See, told you it was temporary. July 22nd and 23rd ignites a fire under your feet and once again you are sure of yourself and your enthusiasm shines through. Your lucky days this month are on the 26th and 27th. The latter is Sunday, when you more leisurely peruse the classifieds and put resumes out under good vibes – it is the intention that means everything. The month ends on a highly creative note. Next month you have more energy for work. Be ready to seize the moments.

Capricorn: December 22 — January 19

Epigram: Between the emotionally intense Capricorn Full Moon on 2 July and tense planetary activity involving volatile Mars and your ruler Saturn, the first half of the month won`t be calm. Knowing that, you`ll realize it`s time to deal with issues and, equally, challenge those who disagree. This may delay finalizing plans, but when you do, they`ll be based on solid facts and, equally, you`ll know who you can rely on. Still, ensure arrangements are flexible enough to accommodate changes over the coming months.

Outline: You`re completely unaware of the effect you have on others on the 1st, because you`re too busy blowing by them! You go, Capricorn! There`s no reason to slow down, especially when you`re leaving competitors in the dust. Get-rich-quick schemes come to your attention on the 4th and 5th, but you know deep down that doing it the old-fashioned way – hard work – is the only real way to do it. It might take you longer to accumulate your nest egg, but so what? At least you can sleep at night. You have some very clear thoughts on the 14th and 15th, but be sure to express those `aha` moments as they`re happening, because you have a tendency to be a tad bit forgetful midmonth. It would be a shame to let those fascinating ideas disappear into the atmosphere. Job or school issues pop up out of nowhere on the 17th and 18th, which makes you wonder “Why am I always the last one to know?” Take steps to make sure you`re more in the loop next time, especially when it comes to your own stuff. Your accomplishments are finally recognized on the 29th and 30th, and it`s so cool to know that others appreciate you for all that you do. Now, what`s next?!

The early days of July promise to be a delight to the senses. If you have a romantic partner, spend as much time locked in each other`s arms as possible. Are you single? Your leadership skills will attract the attention of a talented artist. Together, you will make a very handsome couple. Beware of imposing your will on a business partner on the 6th, or your relationship won`t withstand the strain. It`s also important to be accommodating with your boss during the first half of July, as a staff shortage will make everyone irritable. The New Moon on the 16th is ideal for making up, getting engaged, or reciting vows. Your best friend or lover will help you realise a cherished dream on or around the 21st. This calls for a celebration. A second Full Moon falls on the 31st, warning against unnecessary expenditures. Be frugal as July turns to August.

July begins with the Full Moon (2nd) in your sign: most likely coinciding with the need to assess how well you are protecting others. It may be that you`d really like to spoil someone (a by-product being that this would be a sound investment). With attention drawn to discounts and apparent `quality buys` between 1st and 6th, you could make successful purchases. Your mind is likely to move to more serious investment possibilities from 6th when thanks to a tip-off, you could chance upon an apparently excellent opportunity. That said you might have some difficulty persuading a financial advisor that you really are `on to something`. It may be that this comes as news to them. Certainly around the New Moon (16th) you could experience something of a financial power struggle. Yet all this could spur you on to learn more about how the world of finance operates. By the time Venus enters Virgo on 19th (where it is soon to retrograde), the quest to learn more should begin in earnest. Though it could take until late November to feel you have mastered a particular technique, the fact that you`ve begun the journey should result in you concluding July feeling that you`ve taken a step into a new financial world.

Career & Finance: Sometimes it is about favor exchange, when one has to give to get, but you are enhancing relationships. It is said the more generous one is, the more esteem you earn. Favors are a part of charm, and charm outweighs assertiveness at this time. Your lucky days are the 1st and 2nd and if job-hunting, send resumes. Between the 6th and 9th, people should be extra-anxious to cooperate. Help them to understand how they can help you. From the 15th to the 19th, your logical explanations, your ability to put two and two together, will be especially appreciated. July 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, if you`ve delegated work to others tasks may not be finished properly or fully. You are wise to check. Some people need little supervision, others require a lot. You know the difference. July 28th and 29th are two additional lucky days. Take advantage of opportunity. A nice way to end the month, don`t you think? Next month, if you lost IT you can restore it. Redraft plans, revise the mission. If you wished you said it right the first time, you get a second chance. Too often the second time doesn`t vary from the first. Some ideas just aren`t right for the time.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aquarius: January 20 — February 18

Epigram: Sometimes obstacles are no more than that, difficulties to be overcome; but during July they`re an invitation to examine existing arrangements and explore new ideas or offers from an unaccustomed angle. While initially this may seem a nuisance, you`ll soon realize just how much you`re learning from even complex situations. This isn`t merely about practicalities. You`ll also gain insights into the people involved. While this may mean rethinking certain longstanding views, you`ll soon be delighted how much this frees you.

Outline: You`ve even been known to go wild on occasion, but that definitely isn`t you on the 2nd and 3rd. You have a great sense of restraint that should keep you out of trouble! Your productivity is high on the 4th and 5th, especially when you`re doing things that you really like. Get your responsibilities out of the way early so you can go out with friends or finish that great book you haven`t been able to put down. An unusual breakthrough of some kind has you sitting on the edge of your seat on the 10th, 11th, and 12th, but the end result is totally unknown at this point. You`re going to have to have some patience while this one plays out. You`re all set to let bygones be bygones on the 20th and 21st, but someone from your past just won`t let it go. Just say, “It`s not that big of a deal,” and then move on. Yes, it`s really that easy. Profound feelings hit you from out of nowhere on the 25th and 26th, and guess what – they`re not going to go away until you express them. Don`t worry; it isn`t as bad as you think!

Early July promises to be a very romantic time. If you`re in a relationship, think about taking a luxury holiday with your amour. Are you single? You could meet someone special at work. The Full Moon on the 2nd prompts you to rest, relax and reflect. There`s never been a better time to sneak off to a waterside resort. You`ll feel rebellious in mid-July, which will cause problems with a colleague who wants to do things by the book. Resist the urge to push their buttons. The New Moon on the 16th is ideal for embarking on a fitness routine. You might want to ask a friend to join you on workouts, just to stay accountable. A friend`s sarcasm is too much to bear on the 19th. You need to be honest about how these scathing comments affect you. A second Full Moon falls on the 31st, prompting you to make more demands of a romantic or business partner.

There are two Full Moons this month with the second, in your sign, on 31st. By that date, and taking into account that Venus will have stationed prior to turning retrograde, a major review of finances will surely be necessary. To what extent you`re willing to support a certain person could be a major factor. A further possibility is trepidation as regards a loan or mortgage where you may wonder if you`ve done the `right` thing (which may not be obvious for some months yet. In short, the tussle between logic and feeling could be more complex and difficult than is normal. It may be that you`re unsettled by declarations made mid-month. The period between the New Moon and Venus` entry into Virgo on 19th could be unsettling. As facts become clear -and perhaps as early as 22nd, you may be less dismayed and more inclined to give matters time to resolve. It might be as well to take advice around 26th if you feel inclined toward investment action. Though it`s unlikely you could be dissuaded, wise counsel should enable sound risk assessment.

Career & Finance: The keyword for July is `socialize` and you can break down barriers with colleagues. The 4th is a lucky day. Although a Saturday, job-hunting could be interesting. Immerse yourself in researching. See what new developments are going on. Read blogs and communicate with people. Send resumes if job-hunting. Aquarians are rebellious and able to break molds at every step. The go-against-the-grain philosophy works innovatively. A tsunami of ideas happens between July 6th and 7th and each is one step ahead of everyone else. On the 14th, 15th, and 16th, think back a little over two years ago to a presentation of suggestions. Then, don`t let anything from the past intimidate you. This is now. Assertiveness can be learned. Note and rehearse the words I want, I need, or I feel that can be expressed tactfully. Yes, you are somewhat rebellious, but you may be a member of a team. The days between July 22nd, 23rd and 24th are auspicious for building trust and bringing out everyone`s best. Okay, be a cheerleader. It has its rewards. Enjoy another lucky day on the 31st, when your resume is so impressive someone is ready to hire you on the spot. In August you press ahead, working both harder and smarter.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Pisces: February 19 — March 20

Epigram: Watching familiar elements of your life and arrangements involving others fall apart may seem worrying; but your instincts are correctly saying it`s time things changed, which in some cases means saying farewell to certain arrangements. Once you do, you`ll be both relieved and have space in your life to pursue existing offers and those that arise over the coming two months. Some have been in the air for ages, so won`t be unexpected but a few will be a big surprise.

Outline: You`re such a big help on the 6th and 7th, but don`t let people take advantage of you. You`re such a softie, Pisces, but that shouldn`t translate into being a doormat for anyone! You`ve got a lot of hunches on the 10th, 11th, and 12th, but just because you`re imagining it doesn`t mean it`s true. Do some major investigating before pointing any fingers; it will save you from having to apologize later. Love and romance go hand in hand, and something amazing happens on the 15th or 16th that makes you believe in love at first sight, happily ever after, and everything else that fairy tales are made of. You might just get that storybook ending after all! Unexpected or unwanted endings are a part of life, unfortunately, and it seems like you experience more than your fair share on the 25th and 26th. Don`t dwell on them, though. Just say it`s done. Kaput; and you can get on with your day as if nothing happened. As cliché as it is, when one door closes, another opens. You do the right thing on the 27th and 28th, which isn`t always easy. Going against the crowd takes guts and you`ve got chutzpah to spare!

The opening days of July are perfect for going on a shopping spree. You`re overdue for a splurge. The Full Moon on the 2nd marks a lovely celebration for friends. Be sure to arrive a little early to this event, as your assistance will be needed with the set up. Favorable publicity for a creative project arrives on or around the 8th. Get ready for your close up. The New Moon on the 16th brings exiting news about a birth, engagement, or love affair. An intellectually stimulating class will fill your time during the second half of July, but your boss may resent all the time you spend on this course. Try to strike a careful balance between your personal and professional lives. A second Full Moon on the 31st brings an embarrassing secret to light. If you exaggerated the extent of your experience at work, it`s time to come clean. Your colleagues will respect your honesty.

Though the month begins with some optimism – which will surely carry through to your financial affairs, Venus` arrival in your opposite sign from where it begins a retrograde period that lasts for some weeks, could signal a period of financial awkwardness. True, this might work well if there`s a need to wipe out debts. It`s entirely possible that before end September, you could make significant inroads in rebalancing cash flow. Credit card issues are likely to be raised around the New Moon (16th) which would arguably be an excellent time to check that you are on the best rates. For those in a position to invest, read and re-read prospectus details very carefully over the weekend of 18th/19th – especially if the goods or services provided by a company are leisure-related. Even holiday bookings over this period could yet prove more expensive than first thought when it becomes clear that certain costs are not included. You might also consider marking 29th as `finance` day when you give thought to unavoidable, regular costs and how best to obtain discounts.

Career & Finance: In July, you can make gradual changes that lead to real change. Your lucky days are the 5th and 6th when opportunities finding the job that works for you knock loud and clear. Send resumes and/or ask for favors now. On the 7th, 8th, and 9th the spontaneity of feeling that is a motivation for change surfaces. Did you know that one of the reasons we feel stressed is that we are putting a lot of energy into work that we really do not care about? The emotion you are looking for is passion or finding something you can be fully engaged in doing, whether on the job or during your free time. July 15th and 16th, your Intuition makes decisions quicker, but better. Brainstorm and come up with creative solutions to problems. July 20th and 21st you can say no without burning bridges. It is all in how you say it. You`ll feel better for it. The month ends finding you filled with fascinating revelations. Next month it`s time for a bit of business bonding. In this light, if you have to look at someone`s picture to remember how they look, perhaps it is time to network? Build on the relationships you have.

Meanwhile, Ealy’s new movie The Perfect Guy with Sanaa Lathan and Morris Chestnut opens in theatres September 11th. Ealy and Lathan are presenting this Sunday on the BET Awards.

Changes are ahead on the Bravo reality show The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Model/Actress Claudia Jordan has been bounced from the lineup. Did NeNe Leakes have anything to do with this? When Leakes got her recent raise, she did say only Real Housewives should be on the show. Was Jordan too boring? What about Kenya Moore…she’s no housewife either but Kenya brings a lot of Drama! As for Jordan, The Real Housewives is quite a high profile to lose. What will be Jordan’s next move?

Oscar nominated actress and TV Sensation (Empire) Taraji P. Henson is a covergirl again. Henson graces the latest issue of Allure magazine. Henson is also featured on the latest issue of W magazine.

Congratulations – LGBT!

Congratulations to all my LGBT friends & family. Every act is an act of Self-definition. America you have stereotyped Blacks, Whites, Jews, and Gentiles, men and women, Russians and Americans, Serbs, and Albanians, bosses and workers, even blondes and brunettes…and you will not stop stereotyping, because to stop STEREOTYPING means that you will have to STOP JUSTIFYING your treatment of each other. *drops mike*

The Way Humans Get Electricity Is About to Change Forever


The renewable-energy boom is here. Trillions of dollars will be invested over the next 25 years, driving some of the most profound changes yet in how humans get their electricity. That’s according to a new forecast by Bloomberg New Energy Finance that plots out global power markets to 2040.

1. Solar Prices Keep Crashing

The price of solar power will continue to fall, until it becomes the cheapest form of power in a rapidly expanding number of national markets. By 2026, utility-scale solar will be competitive for the majority of the world, according to BNEF. The lifetime cost of a photovoltaic solar-power plant will drop by almost half over the next 25 years, even as the prices of fossil fuels creep higher.

Solar power will eventually get so cheap that it will outcompete new fossil-fuel plants and even start to supplant some existing coal and gas plants, potentially stranding billions in fossil-fuel infrastructure. The industrial age was built on coal. The next 25 years will be the end of its dominance.

2. Solar Billions Become Solar Trillions

With solar power so cheap, investments will surge. Expect $3.7 trillion in solar investments between now and 2040, according to BNEF. Solar alone will account for more than a third of new power capacity worldwide. Here’s how that looks on a chart, with solar appropriately dressed in yellow and fossil fuels in pernicious gray:

3. The Revolution Will Be Decentralized 

The biggest solar revolution will take place on rooftops. High electricity prices and cheap residential battery storage will make small-scale rooftop solar ever more attractive, driving a 17-fold increase in installations. By 2040, rooftop solar will be cheaper than electricity from the grid in every major economy, and almost 13 percent of electricity worldwide will be generated from small-scale solar systems.

4. Global Demand Slows

Yes, the world is inundated with mobile phones, flat screen TVs, and air conditioners. But growth in demand for electricity is slowing. The reason: efficiency. To cram huge amounts of processing power into pocket-sized gadgets, engineers have had to focus on how to keep those gadgets from overheating. That’s meant huge advances in energy efficiency. Switching to an LED light bulb, for example, can reduce electricity consumption by more than 80 percent.

So even as people rise from poverty to middle class faster than ever, BNEF predicts that global electricity consumption will remain relatively flat. In the next 25 years, global demand will grow about 1.8 percent a year, compared with 3 percent a year from 1990 to 2012. In wealthy OECD countries, power demand will actually decline.

5. Natural Gas Burns Briefly

Natural gas won’t become the oft-idealized “bridge fuel” that transitions the world from coal to renewable energy, according to BNEF. The U.S. fracking boom will help bring global prices down some, but few countries outside the U.S. will replace coal plants with natural gas. Instead, developing countries will often opt for some combination of coal, gas, and renewables.

Even in the fracking-rich U.S., wind power will be cheaper than building new gas plants by 2023, and utility-scale solar will be cheaper than gas by 2036.

Fossil fuels aren’t going to suddenly disappear. They’ll retain a 44 percent share of total electricity generation in 2040 (down from two thirds today), much of which will come from legacy plants that are cheaper to run than shut down. Developing countries will be responsible for 99 percent of new coal plants and 86 percent of new gas-fired plants between now and 2040, according to BNEF. Coal is clearly on its way out, but in developing countries that need to add capacity quickly, coal- power additions will be roughly equivalent to utility-scale solar.

6. The Climate Is Still Screwed

The shift to renewables is happening shockingly fast, but not fast enough to prevent perilous levels of global warming.

About $8 trillion, or two thirds of the world’s spending on new power capacity over the next 25 years, will go toward renewables. Still, without additional policy action by governments, global carbon dioxide emissions from the power sector will continue to rise until 2029 and will remain 13 percent higher than today’s pollution levels in 2040.

That’s not enough to prevent the surface of the Earth from heating more than 2 degrees Celsius, according to BNEF. That’s considered the point-of-no-return for some worst consequences of climate change.

The report assumes there will be no further policies supporting renewable energy from 2018 onward. The EPA’s Clean Power Plan and any unforeseen climate agreements could change the forecast. The share of total generation from renewables will be higher, at 46 percent. The world’s power capacity mix will go from two-thirds fossil fuels today to 56 percent zero emissions, according to BNEF.


Music mogul Diddy’s rep: He was defending himself


Sean “Diddy” Combs was defending himself in an incident at the University of California, Los Angeles, that led to his arrest, a representative the hip-hop mogul’s company said Tuesday.

“The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate,” Nathalie Moar, a rep for Combs Enterprises, said in a statement to The Associated Press. “What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”

Combs was arrested Monday for an alleged assault involving a weight-room kettlebell at the athletic facilities of UCLA, where his son plays football, a university statement said.

Combs, 45, was freed late Monday after posting bail, several hours after his afternoon arrest, jail records showed.

University police allege three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery, according to a UCLA statement.

“We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed,” Combs Enterprises said.

Officials did not say who was allegedly assaulted or what led to it. No one was seriously injured, police said.

The jail records show that Combs’ bail was $160,000, but sheriff’s officials reached by phone said he posted $50,000. The reason for the discrepancy wasn’t clear.

Combs’ son Justin Combs is a redshirt junior defensive back on the UCLA football team, which has been working out on campus. He has played in just a handful of games in his three years with the team.

The son of another major rap star also plays football for the Bruins. Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell Broadus is a wide receiver who signed with the team this year.

Football coach Jim Mora thanked his staff for their professionalism in handling the situation.

“This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved,” Mora said in the statement from campus police. “While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”

The arrest, first reported by TMZ, is the latest of several allegations of violence by Sean Combs.

He was acquitted of bribery and weapons-related charges in connection with a 1999 shooting at a New York nightclub. A jury cleared him of firing a weapon during the dispute that wounded three bystanders, as well as bribing his chauffeur to take the rap.

Combs was arrested in 1999 for his involvement in the beating of former Interscope executive Steve Stoute in New York. Combs apologized, the charges were reduced, and he was ordered to attend an anger management class.

Combs and Stoute have since mended their relationship, appearing on stage together at Cannes in 2013.

Earlier this year, an Arizona man accused Combs of punching him in the face at a Super Bowl party. Combs was not arrested.
