July Rockstrology!

I admit, I love reading my horoscope. I used to be addicted to checking it every morning, and then at night I'd compare the day's prophecy to its actual events. Sometimes there'd be absolutely no correlation at all, other times it would sort of fit, and every once in a while it would actually perfectly correspond to a current situation in my life as if the stars really were looking down on me. And I just loved that synchronicity.
Over the years, I've started looking at horoscopes not as a forecast of what is going to happen to me but more as advice for how to approach whatever does happen to me. But even so, I try not to take them too seriously and prefer to relish their superficial entertainment value more than anything else.

For my birthday picnic in May I decided to make paper fortune cookies as party favors with song lyrics as the fortunes. I had lots of fun with it (and I hope my party guests did too!) and I thought I'd transplant the idea to my blog. So from now on, I'll be posting my "rockstrology" horoscopes at the beginning of each month (yeah, I realize I'm a bit late with July, but the month's not over yet!) along with a playlist of the songs used in the previous month. You might already be able to name some of the tunes, but I thought it might be more fun (and unbiased) to keep all the artists and song titles a surprise till the end of the month (and if you really can't wait to find out, you can always just google it).

Mind you, I'm not an astrologer (and I'm no happy-go-lucky, always positive-thinking life coach either). I assigned the song lyrics to all the zodiac signs at random without paying any attention to what was matched with what, and they are all open to your own interpretation. So have fun finding out what's written in your July (rock)stars!

Aries ( March 21 - April 19)
Fun and sunshine--there's enough for everyone. All that's missing is the sea. But don't worry, you can suntan!

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If they follow you, don't look back. Like Dylan in the movies.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You're flying when your foreign eyes trace the heights of the city.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Boys lie too much. Girls act too tough. Enough is enough.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
All of your days will be blessed, so put on a smile and get dressed.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Who cares what games we choose? Little to win, but nothing to lose.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Advertise to lonely eyes.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Dance, dance, dance. Words can never make up for what you do.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
When you go out stepping on the town for a while, your money's low and your suit's out of style. But it's all right if your clothes aren't new. Out of sight because your heart is true.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Some people claim that theres a woman to blame. But you know it's your own damn fault.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
If you're in love you should make love.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Our paths still cross in these high pressure days. A crowd pattern will emerge. Exchange phone numbers, wither away.
