Today’s horoscopes - Sunday, July 16

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s smart to store up what you will later need. It’s wise to know what that will be; it’s a trick question of sorts, too, as your basic needs will stay the same but what fulfills them will change considerably through time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re getting more and more specific in your desires. Not everyone will understand you, but the ones who do will feel an immediate bond and form a lasting kinship.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you keep making the same goals but you don’t seem to be getting any closer to them, that’s a sign to give them a rest. Maybe having no goal is better than having one that keeps you stuck.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The good things, such as winning the lottery, seem to happen to someone else. The bad things seem that way, too. But don’t forget, you’re ”someone else” to someone else!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Each state of mind and mood has its purpose, and most only last as long as we let them go on. Sadness is like entering a dark room. Happiness can be as simple as reaching your hand out to turn on the light.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The same people who bring out the best in you also bring out the stress in you. The grace of the day is that those two things won’t happen at the same time. If you keep on the sunny side, so will those around you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who are slow to anger will reap the best outcome from today’s situation, which will require patience, a lack of ego and great flexibility of mind. The gentle answer will bring the best results.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Success isn’t a number you reach; it’s a ratio. Even if you have the means you desire, if you are not satisfied, you are not successful. If you are satisfied, even if you are not rich, you can consider yourself a success.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When time and distance don’t seem to make you forget someone, it’s a sign of true love, which is impervious to the effects of miles, clocks and calendars.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The fact that everyone is running around saying there’s a problem doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a problem. Check it out for yourself. Avoid wasting your time with issues that aren’t.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Stay away from the kind of people who have a problem for every solution. It’s not funny, and it’s not charming. What it is — a dark cloud obscuring the sunshine you need so much today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The true sign of intelligence is not in the accumulation of knowledge but in the ability to change. Exercise your right to alter things — your mind, your choices, yourself.
