July will be a big month with lots of opportunities to be productive and also to have fun. This month no longer has Mercury retrograde—that ended June 22. July has no eclipses or angry new or full moons. In short, things should hum along for you, and you will likely be pleased with how things go in your professional and personal life.
Now, turning to another subject, do you believe in synchronicity? I do. When something terrible happens in my life, like the unexpected death of my former husband, Don Miller, I look to see what else is happening in my life at the same time. Any upbeat developments I see can help to point to a way to heal. The universe will always strive for balance by delivering happy news, often at the same time. When Turner Classic Movies called me to do an assignment, which I am thrilled to tell you about below, I knew this was just the boost I needed to lift my spirits.
Turner Classic Movies network asked if I would like to co-host with TCM’s Alicia Malone in July’s ”Spotlight: Star Signs with Susan Miller,” to take place starting July 6 and run every Tuesday night at 8 PM EDT, 5 PM PDT. That means you can set your DVR on July 6, 13, 20, and 27. You will be treated to three classic movies each of the four Tuesday nights I will host with Ms. Malone. You will get insight into the star’s personality as shown by their charts, and learn about each sign with facts you may not have known that would apply to you, your family, and your friends.
Specifically, the 12 movies I chose will be divided into the four elements: Fire, Air, Earth, and Water. I will comment on how the star approached his or her role, and why that role was so perfect for that star.
You will love these movies! The movies I chose are:
Tuesday, July 6, at 8 PM EDT, 5 PM PDT—FIRE SIGNS
• Aries—Steve McQueen, The Cincinnati Kid
• Leo—Lucille Ball, The Long, Long Trailer
• Sagittarius—Kirk Douglas, The Bad and the Beautiful
Tuesday, July 13, at 8 PM EDT, 5 PM PDT—EARTH SIGNS
• Taurus—Audrey Hepburn & Gary Cooper, Love in the Afternoon
• Virgo—Gretta Garbo, Grand Hotel
• Capricorn—Humphrey Bogart, To Have and Have Not
Tuesday, July 20, at 8 PM EDT, 5 PM PDT—AIR SIGNS
• Aquarius—James Dean, Rebel without a Cause.
• Gemini—Marilyn Monroe, The Prince and the Showgirl
• Libra—Rita Hayworth, Gilda
Tuesday, July 27, at 8 PM EDT, 5 PM PDT—WATER SIGNS
• Pisces—Elizabeth Taylor, Butterfield 8
• Cancer—Ginger Rogers with Fred Astaire, The Gay Divorcee
• Scorpio—Grace Kelly with Clark Gable and Ava Gardner, Mogambo

Some movies I already knew and loved (fun to see again), and others were new to me. You might want to invite a friend over so you can discuss the movies afterwards. If you will be out or want to see one at a time, you will want to DVR your favorites if you can’t watch them all at once.
Turner Classic Movies will NOT archive the movies or air the movies on other nights, so you need to record the movie or lose the chance to see it. This is TV by appointment viewing!
You can also watch the moves on your phone or tablet by using the company’s cool app, so search in Apple’s App Store or Google Play for “Watch TCM” to download it free. I am told you will have a little more time to catch each movie on the app, up to a week before it is taken down. (You will need to have TCM available in your cable service to utilize the “Watch TCM” app.)
To get ready to watch, you may want to find out now which channel Turner Classic Movies appears on your cable box. You also will need to know whether your provider gives you that channel as part of your service bundle. (My cable provider does give me TCM automatically.) If not, you can likely buy the service for an affordable charge for as long as you’d like to keep the subscription.
To sum up, the series that I will co-host—an astrological series called Star Signs—will air Tuesday nights in July, beginning Tuesday July 6 at 8 PM EDT.
On July 6, I will discuss FIRE signs, followed by EARTH signs on July 13. AIR signs are next, to air on July 20, and the series finishes with WATER signs on July 27
Most movies are 90 minutes, although some are longer.
I have the ability to do push notifications on my own app (whether you have the free download or the upgraded premium version), so be sure you turn on “Allow Notifications” in the app’s preferences. On the morning of each viewing. I will remind you to tune in to the shows that evening.
Generally, I send out very few notifications, so you will not be flooded with texts, only ones I consider important. I have started texting you when I post Astrology Zone too, so you won’t have to keep checking.
If you don’t have my free app, it’s available in the Apple App Store and Google Play and is called “Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone by Susan Miller.” (Just search for “Susan Miller” and it will come up instantly. You will see a photo of me in a white blouse—that’s easier than typing that long title.)
My app won a first-place award from the Media Excellence Awards in Los Angeles in May for “Excellence in Entertaining Content”—it was a thrill to win, and I posted a picture on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook of the crystal trophy the MEA award committee sent me under my handle @Astrologyzone (for both Twitter and Instagram) and “Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone” for Facebook.
Join me each Thursday evening FOLLOWING the airing of each Tuesday night movie on Twitter so you can tell me which movies were your favorite Turner Classic Movies. We can discuss them together, and it will be fun. That means I will be on Twitter July 8, July 15, July 22, and July 29 at 7 PM ET to hear your thoughts. Use the hashtag #TurnerClassicMovies so I can find your post.
If you like, you can also add Turner’s Twitter handle, @TCM, to your post comments.
I have another big announcement I know you will love!
I will be starting to do regular talks on Google’s “Clubhouse,” and the first session will be on July 12 from 7 to 9 PM EDT.
Clubhouse is a fairly new audio social media platform—no typing! I will be able to hear your voice, and you will hear mine. I will have a moderator to help keep things beautifully organized, and her name is Isis Djata. (Her parents named her after the goddess of the moon—I find that so poetic.)
Be sure to download the Clubhouse app to be ready for my first July 12 event. Again, I will remind you on the day of the event (in this case July 12) via push notification on your cell phone if you clicked “Allow Notifications.”
One of the rules of Clubhouse is that you need to get an invitation to join the service, but that is not necessarily true in your case. A new Google rule will allow you to become a member just by following me and coming to my sessions. If you come to my room, as I am a member now, you will be admitted and allowed to be a member if you follow me.
My first talk will be Monday, July 12, at 7 PM EDT, 4 PM PDT. It will be a Question + Answer session on anything you wanted to know about astrology or about my July forecast. Please read it before the Clubhouse meeting. I want to begin gently as this is new to me, too. I have been going to other people’s rooms (once you are a member you can do that), and I find that it’s fun and informative. Since you don’t have to write, you can be multi-tasking at the same time you tune in, such as you might be cooking dinner, driving home, or walking your dog as some examples
Finally, I want you to know my beautiful 2021 calendar is now selling for a reduced price of $19.99, plus shipping, down from the original price of $26.99. You will get the rest of the year, plus January 2022. I always include January of the following year, in this case 2022. I self-publish this calendar and I write every word.
My calendar is meant to be a blueprint for your entire year so that you can plan ahead. I give you all the aspects I will talk about in Astrology Zone plus many additional ones. I state each aspect along with easy to understand explanations of the aspects. I write every word, so you can trust it. Use my calendar when setting up important interviews, presentations, travel, romantic dates, and more. I clearly explain the meaning of all the important days, so you can choose the most advantageous one for you. It now is reduced from $26.99 to $19.99 plus shipping.
Thank you again for your good wishes and words of sympathy for the loss of my former husband. You have cheered me in my dark moments, and I appreciate your messages of encouragement so much.
