The Stars, Above & Within

As long as the human race has walked the earth, we have looked above at the night sky and tried to explain the patterns we have found in the enigmatic night sky. Astrology is how we interpret the stars and their placement, and thus their impact on us.

At Enigma Life, I want you to be able to find all the ways to bring the power of the zodiac into your life.

Sun Signs, Moon Signs & Rising Signs

Most people only know the sign they were born under, and don’t realize that there are two more signs that help make up who they are. The actual name for the commonly known sign is actually the “Sun Sign”. The other two signs are your Moon Sign and your Rising Sign

Sun Sign The most easily identifiable of the three signs, the Sun sign is determined by your birthday. This particular aspect is the sign of your central, or core personality. They also describe, in very general terms, your essential qualities.

There's nothing wrong with aggressively going after what you want on July 1st and 2nd. You have more than enough talent to go the distance once you decide you really want to go for it. Good luck to anyone who tries to stand in your way! You feel pressure to perform a certain way on the 8th, 9th, and 10th. Sometimes you have to set your own style aside in order to do what the job dictates. Following other people's rules isn't exactly your forte, but you can hack it for a while if it means you'll be in charge someday. Passion yields to impulsiveness on July 15th, 16th, and 17th, so you act without thinking more than vice versa. The thing is, you'd rather ask for forgiveness than permission, so this mindset kind of works for you. The 24th and 25th are perfect days to try out new things, especially when it comes to food and fashion. You're quick to scope out the latest trends and ride those waves until doing so isn't cool anymore. Your shyness is adorable on July 31st, but you aren't used to hanging out alone in the corner. Use your quiet time to contemplate your next big comeback.

You're very aware of yourself and how others perceive you on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, and you aren't in the mood for any bad publicity. If you think someone has it all wrong, you aren't above confronting them and setting the record straight. Your friends, bosses, co-workers, and family members will wonder what's gotten into you on the 11th and 12th because - let's face it - you're just not feeling like yourself. If you think that other people can't tell you're acting strangely, think again. You're steadier and more grounded on July 18th and 19th, so you're able to get a lot done and feel extremely proud of your accomplishments. The world will take notice in the very near future. It might help to have a ref or mediator when you talk to a friend about a beef on the 24th and 25th, because when an argument comes down to the details, it hits too close to home for either one of you to concede. Everyday life doesn't seem so boring on July 28th, 29th, and 30th, possibly in part because of a new romantic enchantment. It's been a while since you've smiled that big for no apparent reason.

Listen closely to what someone may not be saying on July 1st and 2nd. When verbalizing is hard, body language and hand gestures say what words can't. You know those boundaries you put up for what you thought was a good reason a while back? Well, the 6th and 7th are good days to take them down. Making an effort to mend relationships fills a void that's been empty for a long, long time. You don't purposely provoke a teacher or boss on July 13th or 14th, but you truly don't understand certain concepts. You can only say "huh?" so many times before you start getting dirty looks. The 20th and 21st are perfect days to brainstorm about the world's problems, and the possibilities are endless when you believe in yourself. Busywork and household tasks take up a lot of your time on July 26th and 27th, but don't trade speed for attention to detail. You know you won't be able to sleep at night if you just sweep the dirt under the rug. If you're thinking of taking legal action on the 31st, make sure you consult with a professional. You can't afford to be overconfident when it comes to the important stuff.

Everything isn't as easy as you'd like it to be on July 1st and 2nd, so dig in your heels and fight for what you want. You'd love to stay close to home, but the battlefield is probably going to be someplace other than your living room. Difficulties at work throw you on the 8th, 9th, and 10th, especially if they come in the form of delayed projects or rejected reports and proposals. You thought you had this, didn't you? Failure isn't an option, so you'll have to find another way. You don't get the understanding you think you deserve on the 15th, 16th, and 17th, and your feelings are easily hurt. Not a good combination. At least your BFF's shoulder is available for you to cry on if necessary. Your protective side comes out at unusual times on the 22nd and 23rd, but you'll go to great lengths to keep safe the people you consider to be members of your tribe. There doesn't have to be a good reason to go on the defensive when family is involved. You can learn a lot from other people's opinions on July 28th and 29th, but you won't necessarily agree with everything that's said. Agree to disagree in a peaceful manner.

Why not mix it up on July 1st and 2nd? "Opposite day" is fun as long as everyone you know is playing along! You love to investigate the world on the 6th and 7th, and your trip is even better when you take a best friend or lover along for the ride. Leave the GPS apps and maps behind. The best course is the totally unplanned, unexplored one. You get tripped up on the little things on the 13th and 14th, and losing important items is inevitable but oh, so frustrating. It would be great to just take these couple days off, but if you have responsibilities to tend to (like the rest of us), go slowly and proceed with caution. Your sunny smile lights up entire rooms on July 24th and 25th, and you have a great time just being yourself. Your friendliness is contagious, and talking to strangers is just like having conversations with old friends you haven't seen in a long while. It's natural to feel like you're under a microscope during an interview or on a date on the 31st, but you should feel flattered that you're even being considered for the position. Being yourself really is the only way to seal the deal.

Why are you feeling so restless and fidgety on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th? It feels like you might just explode if you don't get the answers you're looking for. Use that nervous energy and apply it toward investigating something you want to know more about. You get the chance to break out of your usual routine on the 11th and 12th, but will you take it? Veering from your typical schedule isn't exactly in your comfort zone, but so what? Throw caution to the wind and do something different. You won't be sorry! Your image is everything to you on July 18th and 19th, so you take great care to make sure no one is gossiping about you or talking behind your back. You know from experience that even positive words have a way of getting twisted. You're a step ahead of everyone else on the 26th and 27th, which allows you to get your work done with plenty of breathing room. That will give you time to go over it a second time, upping your chances of achieving perfection. Just make sure you leave yourself something to strive for.

You get that boost of energy you've been looking for on July 1st and 2nd, so what will you do with your increased vitality? Don't waste extra time on boring chores. Do something fun that you've had to put off until now! The 8th, 9th, and 10th could be disheartening. No one likes to hear unwelcome news, and yours could be especially disappointing. Do you have someone you can talk to? Shutting yourself off right now won't help. A hot new romance could be something to look forward to on the 15th, 16th, or 17th, so don't give up on love just yet. If you're currently in a relationship, look for something to happen to rekindle the old flame that's gone out lately. You don't put up with any nonsense on July 20th and 21st, especially when it comes to communicating. Your texts and conversations are short and to the point, which some people appreciate and others question. Those closest to you will get it. Entertainment is your number one priority on the 28th and 29th, and if you want to see the hottest show, you'd better start working on getting tickets early. Use your personal connections to get the best seats in the house.

It's hard to make up your mind on July 1st and 2nd because you see everyone's point of view. Being fair comes naturally to you, but you want to hear all sides of the story before making your final decision. There are bombs going off in all directions on the 11th and 12th, but you probably don't have official training in crisis management. You're very calm and quick to act, but is it enough? Call for reinforcements if the pressure starts to overwhelm you. You have rigid rules for yourself on July 15th, 16th, and 17th, but you can't fault others for not following them. Your high standards might not be the same as those of your friends, relatives, and co-workers, but that's okay. Your quest for perfection is what makes you unique. Your imagination runs the show on the 22nd and 23rd, and it's wonderful that you have so many different and creative options for your current problems. If you have time to spare, why not help someone else with theirs? July 31st is your day to shine, and you make things as uncomplicated as possible. There's always a hint of mystery about you, though. The fact that others can't quite explain you makes you happy.

You want to be alone with your thoughts on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, but you can't blame your friends for trying to pry some info out of you. They aren't used to seeing you this introspective, and they just want to help. You hear a lot of similes and metaphors that describe your current situation almost exactly on the 13th and 14th, which could inspire you to write poetry or songs. Sign up for an open-mike night midmonth. Getting your feelings out in front of a crowd is surprisingly satisfying and deeply cathartic. If you start to feel like your life is too commonplace on July 18th and 19th, you aren't looking at it hard enough. Your cute little idiosyncrasies make you unique, special, and loved - what's so common about that?! There are smiles all around when you walk through the door on the 24th and 25th because people know when you arrive the party can finally get started. Luck is on your side, so there's little need to worry about things you can't control.

July 1st and 2nd are great days to stick to the fundamentals. You can work on the fancy tricks another time. For now, just make sure you have the basics down because they will serve you well in the long run. You may be unaware of your own velocity on the 6th and 7th, so be sure to slow down from time and time and see if there's anything in your way. Tapping the brakes isn't a sign of weakness - it's a show of courtesy and respect for other drivers out on the road. You could have a lucid dream or extreme moment of clarity that guides you on July 20th and 21st, so don't shy away from making decisions based on things you don't quite understand. Yes, you thrive on logic and reason, but there isn't always a rational explanation for everything. Just go with it. The 26th and 27th are good days to touch base with old friends and colleagues. Being separated by distance barely seems to affect you. Reach out by text or video chat to catch up on old times.

Private issues take up most of your time on July 1st and 2nd, and while it would be nice to get a second opinion, you aren't ready to share what's really going on. Luckily, you can figure things out without making your personal issues public. You don't work well around people who make or follow lots of rules on the 11th and 12th, because your goal in life is pretty much to break free from the constraints that society tries to put on you. You may be able to play nice for a while, but not for long. Your kindheartedness is on display on the 13th and 14th, and people you live or work with may be surprised to see how loving and tender you can be. It might not be something you want to sustain long term, but it's nice to show your emotional side now and then. It's tempting to exaggerate your strengths and talents on July 22nd and 23rd, but the further overboard you go, the greater the risk of being found out. When in doubt, just be yourself. Abrupt changes shake things up on the 24th and 25th, but you're ready for the next phase of your life, whatever it may be. Bring it on!

Letting other people run the show is a mistake on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th. You may not want to drive when you aren't sure where you're going, but it's a lot better to be behind the wheel than in the passenger seat. The giant wheel of fortune begins to slow down on the 6th and 7th, and you could be surprised where it ends up. You may not consider yourself to be all that lucky, but life is about to prove you wrong. Do something charitable with the remainder of your winnings after you do something nice for yourself. You start to wonder if certain things are just figments of your imagination on July 15th, 16th, and 17th, but there are several good ways to tell if something is real or not. Your dreams are also especially vivid, but the line between reality and your dream world are obvious once you're awake. Working with or meeting new people on the 26th and 27th causes you to do some research into who they really are, but the best way to get to know them is face to face. No question is off limits in the "getting to know you" phase.
