According to legend, (and a 1976 DC Comics calendar) July 22nd is the day when Aquaman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Superman, and Wonder Woman first organized the Justice League of America in order to more effectively resolve those situations they would be unable to handle individually.  Their first adversary was Starro the Conqueror in Brave and the Bold #28 (March 1960), written by Gardner Fox and penciled by Mike Sekowsky.  Since then, The Justice League of America has fought such foes as Amazo, Darkseid, Felix Faust, The Injustice League, The Key, The Royal Flush Gang, the Shaggy Man, and many more.

Over the years, the roster of the Justice League has grown to include such other superhero luminaries as Green Arrow, The Atom, Hawkman, Black Canary, Red Tornado, Zatanna, and Firestorm.  They’ve disbanded, re-formed, and re-branded several times, for a time becoming just the Justice League, then Justice League International, then splitting into Justice League America and Justice League Europe (with a short-lived Justice League Antarctica), and then the JLA.  Currently, they have resumed referring to themselves as The Justice League of America, and have welcomed new members Cyborg, (a reformed) Lex Luthor, and Shazam.

- Sun Sign is Aries  

Sun in Aries people are natural athletes. What is happening right now is most important to Aries. Some Aries people are bold, but even the quieter ones are brave and even dangerous in their own way. Aries people are known to be mean and dangerous but actually, they’re total sweethearts!  Aries enjoys a challenge, and Aries Suns are happiest when their lives are moving forward and active. There’s a childlike quality to all Aries Sun people, and it’s often quite charming. Aries born have a strong personality. They are ambitious and self-willed, stubborn, obstinate and tenacious. They’re weaknesses are nervousness, impulsiveness, wastefulness, provoking nature, restlessness and changeability.

- Rising Sign/Ascendant is Libra

Everybody seems to like Libra Ascendant people.  They just come across as nice, pleasant, and fair. Look a little closer at their lives, and these nice people may have had quite a few problems in their relationships. Libra rising generally appear to be smoothing everything over. They have charming smiles, a gentle approach with others, and an easygoing image. Even if they were not endowed with good looks, they are attractive. Most pay a lot of attention to their personal appearance; the clothes they wear, their hair, the way they walk–you name it!

- Moon Sign is Aries 

Moon in Aries people tend to have plenty of crushes and other short desires. In their minds, what they want is so powerful that it becomes an absolute need. In young adulthood, they can be dangerous with a credit card. Whoever offered the advice to freeze your credit card in a container of water, and then let the block of ice thaw before using the card, had to be someone with Moon in Aries. The whole idea was to see if the shopping would pass by the time the card was ready to use. Still, with this scenario, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Moon in Aries people hacking away at the ice. That is, if Aries actually takes the advice in the first place! They can be pretty stubborn.

- Mercury Sign is Pisces

Mercury in Pisces people sponge up their feelings, moods of people and the environment around them. They can have moody communication and sometimes can be very talkative, but other times, they can go a whole conversation and discussions without even saying a word. They tend to have flexible minds, sometimes gullible, but usually simply open to possibilities. It can be very hard to pin them down to anyone’s belief or decision.

- Venus Sign is Aries

Venus in Aries people flirt by being up-front, direct, and even daring. They try to win you over by expressing how enterprising and independent they are. Their style of expressing love can be “me”-centered, but the right person for them will find this approach charming. People get turned on by Venus in Aries’ aura of innocent charm, even when they are being childish and impatient. Venus in Aries men and women behave in a childlike, fun-loving manner in love. They are turned on by energy and activity. Turn-offs include a relationship that is considered stuffy or too “mature”, vagueness, and beating around the bush. In love, Venus in Aries people are hopelessly addicted to the conquest. In order for a relationship to remain fresh and new for them, they require plenty of stimulation.

- Mars Sign is Sagittarius 

Mars in Sagittarius can be a little hard to understand. Sometimes they seem to be the most easy-going of people–they love a good joke and a good time. Other times they are on fire–intense and impassioned about something or other. They need to feel like they have space. They’re the ones who will run away when things get too serious or dull. They’ll likely be back soon–it’s just that they need to feel free for a while.

They would love to make the world again and maybe even better.    

- Uranus Sign is Aquarius

Generosity, likes to resolve problems in order to satisfy everyone. They succeed, thanks to brilliant and unusual ideas. They are very influenced by their mother. They have strange relationships. They are easily influenced, very sensitive and emotional.
