Ascension Parish star forecasts for the week of July 5.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19, The Ram)

Lonely Aries, it's better to be friends this week, even though they may not seem to be working as hard as you are at the office (or at home).

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20, The Bull)

Remain open minded and helpful to everyone around you. This week, try a new recipe at home to wow your family. They're nuts about you anyway.

Gemini (May 21-June 20, The Twins)

Don't let the committee in your head tell you you're not good enough or attractive enough this week. There's something radiant about you. #neverforget

Cancer (Jun. 21-Jul. 22, The Crab)

You might be nursing a hangover from throwing yourself the ultimate birthday party. Regroup. Google "mindfulness." Get back in the moment.

Leo (Jul. 23-Aug. 22, The Lion)

For the love of God, quit smoking! Your peers love your leadership (and your stories, and your laughter), but may regret the second-hand smoke.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22, The Maiden)

Saucy maiden, don't fret the small stuff. Focus on the daily opportunities this week to work steadily towards your goals. Let others' fates play out divinely.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22, The Scales)

If you're not in the hospital today from a fireworks accident, you're doing great! This week give your body a break from soda and wine. Call an old friend.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21, The Scorpion)

Ease into physical activity this week to avoid injury. Stretch. Maybe try a yoga routine. It'll make your sex appeal go further.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21, The Centaur)

Make a decision to commit this week. Also, you've been playing to the level of your competition for long enough. Whether on the golf course or at your job, focus. And crush it.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19, The Goat)

Take setbacks in stride this week. Know that those around you will help you achieve your goals. Be patient. Trade in the podcast for music on your commute one evening. Sing!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18, The Water-bearer)

Your work-life balance is out of whack because you're focused on yourself. Reach out to someone this week. It'll get you out of your head and back where you belong.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20, The Fish)

It's okay to be taught a lesson this week. That's all it is. Life's funny that way. Watch a new comedy one night with a loved one.
