beliefnet matthew currie gemini compatibilityWelcome back to the exciting final round of “Should I Stay, Or Should I Go?”

Today’s contestant, Gemini, is on the verge of walking away with the Grand Prize… true love! Now Gemini, all you have to do is answer one question correctly. The cash value of the question reflects the degree of difficulty involved. Naturally, you might want to pick an easier Sign… but playing it safe all the time didn’t get you as far as it has.

LIBRA ($200): If someone wants to go the same direction you want to go, but you’re always going in two different directions at once, can they keep up?

AQUARIUS ($200): There’s no question that you can be cool and dispassionate when you want to, knowing your partner will appreciate the affection when it comes later. But what if your partner has a chill schedule of his/her own?

ARIES ($400): If a train leaves Chicago traveling east at 50 miles per hours, and you want to go west, are you going to end up under this train instead of on it?

LEO ($400): If fun and passionate meet materialistic and possessive in a dark back alley, who will win the knife fight? And are you the darkened back alley?

SAGITTARIUS ($400): If two freedom fighters team up, and one of them changes flags every other day, how long until the two freedom fighters end up shooting each other, even by accident?

GEMINI ($600): If two people manage to travel in four directions at once, will either of them end up getting anywhere together, or everywhere?

VIRGO ($600): Emotionally, is X greater than Y, if Y equals Virgo? Solve for X. Having fun yet? Didn’t think so. It’s supposed to be a romance, not a math problem.

TAURUS ($800): If slow and steady wins the race, will you get tired of the prize and want to take up poker before you get to the finish line if you’re riding a Bull?

CAPRICORN ($800): If a hot air balloon has a relative weight of -50 pounds, how many boulders will a Capricorn pile on to ground it until the balloon turns into just an empty bag that doesn’t fly?

CANCER ($800): Which lasts longer: Cancer’s ability to dive deep into the dark waters of over-emotionality, or your ability to hold your breath while they drag you down with them?

SCORPIO ($1000): How many times per day do you need to be told to mentally and verbally “get to the point” before you trade in your honeymoon tickets to Hawaii for a bus ticket to Anywhere But Here?

PISCES ($1000): (Two part question) 1) A bird may love a fish, but where would they live? 2) How long will it take two birds to either eat two fish, or drown?

Go ahead, Gemini… pick a Grand Prize question. Or. if you prefer, just spin the wheel. That approach seems to work for you too…

beliefnet matthew currie aries compatibiityAs much as a cliche as it might be, I still find that when an Aries approaches me about their love life, the question may be “Is so-and-so my soul mate?” or “Should I continue to pursue whatshisface?”… but the real question is “how much of a fight am I going to have to put up to get things right?” But you want romance, and whether you’re a man or a woman, you love the challenge.

Here is a demonstration of Aries compatibility in terms Aries understands well: combat. Let’s see how easy or hard the planned Aries invasion of Love Island will be, based on the sign of the partner.

THE BEACH: The Fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Flat, level terrain here with little resistance. Another Aries might seem like the logical place to start. Trouble probably will set in when your next planned combat action isn’t on the same path as your partner’s. Leo is comfortable, but they can be less goal-oriented than you. That can be frustrating. Sagittarius is a pleasant fit, but you may have this nagging feeling they aren’t taking you seriously enough. And you’re probably right.

THE GRASSLANDS: The Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. A little more work to empathize with, but still relatively easy to reach. Only the occasionally spear is thrown at you as you approach. Gemini can be a little more scattered and indecisive than you. Aquarius can be similarly passionate about things, yet strangely dispassionate about them too, and that can be frustrating. Libra is a little further inland and hilly, but worth the extra travel. You may find the natives here react to your every strategic move, making them surprisingly hard to catch off guard for such nice people.

MOUNT BULLMORE: Taurus. Lush fields protected by stubborn thick jungle and a steep climb. This one will take some time to achieve, but may well be worth it as a stabilizing influence. Watch out for the vines: they cling. Hard.

DREAMY VALLEY: Pisces. Gentle, restful, green and luscious. It’s a shame you have to go through so much damned work just to find a place to rest. And the terrain here can be confusing and unclear. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? You decide.

FLINTY RIDGE: Virgo. On the face of it, you two have neither nothing in common nor any reason for conflict. This can actually be a great place for you to camp out. All you’ll have to do is convince the natives it’s okay. And do it in their language, not yours. Good luck with that.

SCORPION PASS: Remember that scene in The Fellowship Of The Ring where Gandalf held off the giant Balrog in a spectacular battle, only for both of them to plunge to their deaths? Yes, one of them did come back for the next movie. You think that’s you, or is will it be Scorpio? It’s a coin toss. You like those odds?

THE DEFENSIVE MOUNTAINS: Cancer and Capricorn. You wouldn’t leave your valuables in the driveway and lock up your old newspapers, would you? These two are emotionally defensive because they have a lot going on inside, and they are the most reactive to a sudden jab. The problem here is that “sudden jab” is your style, whether you like it or not.

So why even bother? I don’t have to tell you. You’re an Aries. It’s all about the victory, baby… glorious, glorious victory.

A typical horoscope lays out what you can expect for yourself in the next week or month based on your Sun Sign. That sort of thing is great, sure… especially if you happen to be the only person on your planet. Astrology, like life in general, is a lot more complicated than “there are twelve types of people, and here’s what’s going to happen to them today.”

This “horoscope” is a listing of the major planetary aspects, ingresses, and events for July 2017. Each aspect is described below, with the date the aspect is exact and a “+/-” which indicates the number of days that aspect will be most in effect. Generally, the closer to the exact date, the more pronounced the effect of the transit. And of course, as with everything else in life: your mileage may vary.

But first, a word about aspects in general. Conjunctions, squares and oppositions can all be difficult. They generate the sort of energy that can get all up in your face and is hard to ignore, but it’s hard to get much done in life without the raw energy they supply. Trines and sextiles are helpful and constructive, but it’s easy to miss out on the opportunities they provide unless you make an effort.

July  2, 2017    * Mars opposite Pluto *
(+/- 10 days) This is dominant aspect for the first part of this month. There’s tension in the air, and an urge to break things rather than fix them.

July 4, 2017  Venus enters Gemini
An excellent time to talk your way into someone’s heart, or out of trouble.

July  4, 2017    Mercury square Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Original ideas, but difficulty in making them work or be understood properly.

July 5, 2017 Mercury enters Leo
Not the most detailed-oriented of Mercury placements… but a good time to plan on having some fun and expressing yourself creatively.

July  5, 2017    Sun trine Neptune
(+/- 3 days) Your place in life gets a little hazy, but not necessarily in a bad way.

July  5, 2017   Sun square Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Egos get inflated and possibly a little bruised.

July  7, 2017    Mercury sextile Venus
(+/- 3 days) An excellent time for creativity and writing a love letter.

July 9, 2017  *Full Moon in Capricorn*
One of the year’s crazier Full Moons, as the Moon is conjunct Pluto. Watch your temper!

July 10, 2017   Sun opposite Pluto
(+/- 3 days) Tensions arise when egos clash. Try to take the High Road.

July 14, 2017    Mercury sextile Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Big ideas and creativity abound in your communications.

July 17, 2017   Venus square Neptune
(+/- 3 days) Big enthusiastic affections and expressions — but how practical are they, really?

July 17, 2017    * Mars square Uranus *
(+/- 10 days) …and here’s the aspect that eats up much of the middle of the month. Tempers and sex drive can become awkward, uncomfortable, and unexpected. Get your blood pressure checked.

July 18, 2017    Venus trine Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Why can’t we all just get along? Maybe under this aspect we can, for at least a little while.

July 19, 2017    Mercury trine Saturn
(+/- 3 days) Thoughts and ideas can take root in practical application.

July 20, 2017   Mars enters Leo
Drama is perhaps one of the first of all human arts. The thing is, though? You can turn off that movie any time you want — but Mars in Leo lasts for a month and a half. Have fun with it, and don’t take yourself too seriously.

July 20, 2017    Sun square Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Try not to take yourself too seriously. Someone’s likely to get grandiose without any real justification… don’t be that guy.

July 22, 2017 Sun enters Leo
Prepare birthday gifts for your Leo buddies… and don;t go cheap. They hate that.

July 23, 2017 New Moon in Leo
A New Moon is a good time to set your intentions for the month ahead. This New Moon is closely conjunct Mars, so choose a target that needs to be blasted a little.

July 24, 2017   Venus opposite Saturn
(+/- 3 days) A bit of a chill blows into your love life, but with it comes some clarity and perspective.

July 24, 2017   Mercury trine Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Express yourself in new and unusual ways.

July 25, 2017 Mercury enters Virgo
Mercury in Virgo bring s a newfound precision to your thinking and communications… take advantage of that now before Mercury turns retrograde on August 12th.

July 26, 2017    Sun conjunct Mars
(+/- 3 days) Lots of energy and enthusiasm.

July 30, 2017    Venus sextile Uranus
(+/- 3 days) New and unusual attractions, and new energy to liven up your love life.

July 31, 2017 Venus enters Cancer
Want to impress a loved one? Go with “soft and sentimental” over “loud and shiny.”
