There is a saying: “Everyone is always looking for a mother.”

Well, if there is any truth in that saying and you are one who is looking for a mother, then find someone born this week.

A male or female born this week is able to provide the constant care of a loving mother.

Cancer people really enjoy taking care of folks. They are the people we call when we need help or just someone to listen to our stories of woe.

Anyone born this week is sensitive, secretive and, like the American theme, willing to welcome most people with open arms.

Cancers will give until it hurts but once they reach the breaking point, they are able to say enough is enough with a smile.

People born this week: Gina Lollobrigida, July 4, 1927; Adam Young, July 5, 1986; Sylvester Stallone, July 6, 1946; Ringo Starr, July 7, 1940; Jaden Smith, July  8, 1993; Tom Hanks, July 9, 1956; Jessica Simpson, July 10, 1980; and Nadya Suleman, “Octomom,” July 11, 1975,

Here we have the sun in Cancer and then we are facing an emotion-packed week. Jupiter is also about to leave Cancer and move into Leo on July 16. This change in signs for Jupiter will offer golden opportunities to Leo, Sagittarius and Aries. If you are a fire sign, get prepared to make some good moves.

Aries  (March 21 to April 20) It is just a matter of days – July 16 to be exact – and Jupiter will be making great aspects to your sun. If you have a great idea that merely needs a push to blossom, now is the time for the push. Looking for a new romance; this is also a good time to start the search.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You are facing an emotional week and it would be wise to count to 10 before you promise anything to anyone. You don’t want to overextend yourself. You are going to make a successful move but be patient.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Putting your social self back into the swing of things piece by piece will bring you plenty of joy. If you venture into the new game slowly, you will avoid your past mistakes. That is the good news of the day since you are always a social soul. Try to remember that nothing goes on paper.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20)  As you make some small changes in your lifestyle, remember it is for your good. You will be the one who benefits the most from this new routine. So try to avoid standing in your own way. The best way to do that is to stop listening to the opinions of others. You know exactly what you are doing

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Your luck is about to change and, if you are prepared, it will be doubly good for you and everyone you know. Jupiter is about to enter Leo and with it comes opportunity to expand your horizons. Looking for a new relationship or career? Then get serious. This is no time to waste any energy or nerve. Get moving.

Virgo  (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) It is time to stop talking about change and make some. No more saying “yes” when you really mean “no.” This is a big step forward for you and where you would like to work. The work you have been putting into your new adventures is starting to pay off big time. You are heading toward your big payoff.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) In the past weeks you have come face to face with the fact you don’t like confrontation. You also are aware you will do anything to avoid it. But as Mars gets ready to exit Libra, it is a good time to stand up and be counted. You need to have some feeling about this issue and introduce yourself to the new you.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Partnerships may be challenging now, but think of all you are learning because of your partner. It should involve patience and how to say what you really think in a kind and tender way. Some people pay money to learn those lessons; you are getting them free of charge. New funds will soon roll your way.

That is one virtue that will serve you well in your future moneymaking ideas. Using power properly is the goal of a Capricorn.

Aquarius  (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) One of your relationships requires some of your time so you can better understand your role in the upset.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Taking control of a situation that needs your wisdom and patience is wise. Don’t let it go. Just keep your kind nature in control and avoid any angry words.
