Horoscope for July 28, 2011

By Bernice Bede Osol

If today is your birthday: Difficulties accomplishing anything in the year ahead will not be due to an absence of opportunities, but from the fact that you might have too many options. Select the ones that interest you the most and tackle them first.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Praise, politeness and tact are tools that always work very well for everybody. However, you will need one more element, and that is a ring of sincerity. Mean what you say.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your word must always be your bond, especially when making a commitment to a special someone. A broken promise could leave a wound that would be extremely difficult to heal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You're good at flowery speech, but you might be tempted to lay it on rather thick, leaving a lot of doubt in another's mind. Better use a thinner brush and smaller strokes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Although you're basically an intense person, you could be more bold than smart, and get yourself in a lot of trouble. As the saying goes, "Don't rush in where angels fear to tread."

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- The last thing you need to tell someone who comes to you for help is what you believe she or he wants to hear instead of the truth. It'll hurt your pal even further.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Regardless of what you find yourself doing, rely only on your own smarts, abilities and resources. You could lock yourself out if you depend on others for help.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Listen to the suggestions of others, but don't use what they say as an excuse to cop out or fail to think for yourself, especially if you know more about things then they do.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Doing something good for phony reasons will be transparent to those whom you're trying to impress. Be sure your motives are sincere and not just for show.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- When out in public, your common sense usually enables you to maintain a pleasant demeanor toward those who have offended you in the past. You might have a hard time doing so today, however.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Do not employ permissiveness toward those in your charge when discipline is required. You'll be asking for trouble, because the former compounds mistakes, while the latter corrects them.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Unless your mind is totally focused on your work, even tasks you handle on a regular basis could go awry, so don't take anything for granted. Serious mistakes are likely if you stray.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you're watching your pennies, subdue extravagant spending habits, such as purchasing something at its initial price when you know it will be reduced down the line.
