Horoscope – July 20, 2017 by James Croal Jackson

You’re going to have it all
but not today, Taurus.

The swarming suits
will suffocate you;
love won’t feel like it exists.

This trend will grind you
down to bones but you
will bounce out of bed

tomorrow to grind
at work. Open your mouth
a little more than usual

to let more air
into your life.
