Silly Summer Horoscopes for Kids

Horoscopes have been appearing in newspapers for hundreds of years. By using the Sun, the Zodiac, (which means circle of animals) and your birth date as their guide, astrologers can give you insight into how your day might go. Some people read their horoscope (which means to look at the hour) everyday, while others think it’s all a bunch of baloney. I think that baloney is best with bread and mustard.

Find your birthday and corresponding zodiac sign to see what summer fun is ahead for you.

March 21 – April 19 / Aries / Ram: Your summer may be filled with lots of action and adventure, whether you are skydiving or ballroom dancing, be sure to wear your helmet to protect that hard head of yours!

April 20 – May 20 / Taurus / Bull: You will likely find yourself enjoying a nice relaxing summer, spending time with friends, spending time enjoying Popsicles and of course, spending all your parents money.

May 21 – June 20 / Gemini / Twins: Make sure to get your friends phone numbers before the summer starts as you’ll need to make sure that your tongue stays in good shape for all that talking that you love to do.

June 21 – July 22 / Cancer / Crab: Whether you are enjoying a backyard barbeque or a family road trip, you will enjoy your family time…at least as much as your brother or sister will let you!

July 23 – August 22 / Leo / Lion: Your summer will likely be filled with fun and games, just remember to let other people win sometimes…ahhh never mind, you are the CHAMPION of summer fun.

August 23 – September 22 / Virgo / Virgin: Take some time to do something good for your neighborhood this summer; start a street circus, give free hot air balloon rides or maybe you could just offer to help someone with their yard work.

September 23 – October 22 / Libra / Scales: It can be difficult to decide how to enjoy your summer. Just make a plan and do it all; paint your room purple, visit the White House, just don’t stay home being blue.

October 23 – November 21 / Scorpio / Scorpion: As you mysteriously change from a 2nd Grader to a 3rd grader this summer make sure you wear sandals and shorts to keep from destroying your good clothes.

November 22 – December 21 / Sagittarius / Archer: Travel is your middle name and you’re sure to find lots of fun along the way, just remember to let your parents know where you’re going and when you’ll be back so they won’t rent out your room.

December 22 – January 19 / Capricorn / Goat: While the other kids are having fun swimming and bike riding, you’ll be dreaming of spelling tests and room chores. Don’t worry, school will start in September, and you’ll be having fun again.

January 20 – February 18 / Aquarius / Water Bearer: While you are busy planning the future, you dream of underwater swing sets and rocket bikes that can take you to the moon. Until then, your summer will probably be filled with modern day good times.

February 19 – March 20 / Pisces / Fish: Whether you are at the beach, the lake, or the river, you won’t get tired of the water. However, if you start growing scales or fins, seek medical attention immediately.

Whatever your sign, remember to flash the peace sign once in a while!


The Astrology of Resourcefulness


Discover your unique strengths and weakness when it comes to acquiring your most fundamental needs – which may or may not have anything to do with money! Use the following guide to find the source of your resourcefulness. Whether you are wanting more money, better relationships or have a project you are working on it’s important to recognize that to some extent we all encompass the following energies. Using your natal chart* look to the rulers (cusp and/or planets) of the 2nd, 6th, and 10th house to determine how you can best use the energy with which you are graced.

Aries / Mars – Often leaping before looking, this energy can best be harnessed with the saddle of independence. What may appear as selfishness is really just survival mode kicking in. Like a child, Aries (the first sign of the zodiac) needs to experience and cultivate The Self, discovering their own reliance and abilities. Mars assertiveness can be used beautifully in the realm of resources and finances – especially if you are the entrepreneurial type. Aries’ instincts are sharp and should be trusted.

Taurus / Venus – The Bull and the Goddess of Love make perfect companions; Taurus is all about doing the work and Venus is all about the reward. The gift is truly recognizing that you must do the grunt labor to receive the full blessing and appreciation of a nice hot bath. Taurus needs to feel loved and appreciated, at the same time deserving. Often just shifting how we love and value ourselves puts into motion the Venusian attraction quality and suddenly all that we need is given to us.

Gemini / Mercury – Here’s where we get to use our brain. Gemini is all about information and communication. Add to that intellectuality and perception and we have the perfect recipe for success. The key is to remain adaptable and flexible within any situation. Gemini likes to talk but would do well to listen – especially to people such as siblings and neighbors. These same people are a necessary support system for the Gemini.

Cancer / Moon – Put yourself in situations where emotion and nurturing go well together. Use the feminine aspects in your life to sustain your greatest need; going with the flow. Just as the Moon goes through phases most things in your life will be cyclical. Once you can recognize these cycles in terms of lack or abundance, the world is your oyster. The power of the past can best be used to avoid future struggles, while sentimentality can give you inspiration and a deep sense of connection to whatever you are trying to accomplish.

Leo / Sun – FAME ! I wanna live forever ~ la la la . . .okay, so I can’t sing. But I do use Leo to help generate my own creative self expression. Whether that expression is a poem, my garden or my kids – it’s mine. Whatever you create sustains a part of your soul that nothing else can. Surround yourself with children, they are so vibrant and awake – and they won’t let you forget that the world revolves around them, not you.

Virgo / Mercury – Resourcefulness comes naturally to the Earth signs. This energy gives the ability to be discriminating and analytical. Your sincere desire to make the world a better place can work to your benefit. Work really can be a pleasurable experience especially if it involves using your noggin in those ways that require critical thought. Remember that although your boss might really appreciate your ability to analyze and get to the nitty-gritty of things, your friends may not. If all else fails, keep your hands busy.

Libra / Venus – Charm and diplomacy really are priceless. Endowed with these qualities, Libra is ultimately in it for the discovery of oneself through others. How you relate, whether personally or in business, will have everything to do with how you meet your deepest desires. Your greatest strength is the ability to see all points of view, and the tricky thing is that this is also your greatest weakness.

Scorpio / Mars – Sex, death and taxes are all represented by this duo. Success is assured through constant regeneration, recognition of when things need to end and always paying your debts. You have depth, insight and intensity – use this for the good of all life and you will be using your greatest assets. Maintaining a sense of mystery can help you move stealthily towards your goals but can also hinder you through other’s suspicion.

Sagittarius / Jupiter – Yours is a search for truth, justice and understanding. Despite your notion that these concepts exists in books or buildings, they are really just found in experience. Get out there! Take your dog and your walking stick and set out on the path before you. Talk to everyone and listen carefully, they will tell you everything you need to know. Expansion, abundance and a true sense of wealth is only an idea away.

Capricorn / Saturn – Our lives are made of various structures, from bridges to our bodies. This is the energy that reminds us that we all have a responsibility to maintain the security and endurance of that which we create. But just as bridges have to move with the wind, we have to sway with the changes. A hard worker, you probably don’t lack for much except time – you must create this for yourself.

Aquarius / Uranus – You see the world through the eyes of the future. And while some may perceive you as aloof or cool, remind them that you can’t promote positive change, essentially saving the world, if you are all blubbery and emotional. You certainly don’t lack for change and unpredictability, even downright chaos – but rest assured that your life will change in magic ways if you can get nine hours of sleep.

Pisces / Neptune – Deeply in touch with your visions, dreams and ideals, you can spend a lot of time wishing. Turning your dreams into reality often requires that we sacrifice our ideals. It is through all forms of art that you can manifest your visions rather than letting them turn to faded memories. Your intuition is strong and should not be disregarded. If you listen to yourself, you can trust your way to brilliance.
