Like most rulers, the Virgo sun doesn’t like to be opposed. So when Neptune challenges the sun from the idealistic, dreamy realm of Pisces, it’s like a young whippersnapper raging against the establishment with only a few good theories and no practical experience to back it up. Clueless dissenters should not be followed.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Is thunder a momentary scare or a warning of what’s to come? You won’t regret it if you follow your instinct to overreact in this case. It will be better than underreacting and the resulting ill preparedness.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be drawn to quirky personalities because you correctly sense that these types have special gifts and/or knowledge that will be helpful to you a little farther down the line.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Repentance will be a theme. It’s not that you’ve done anything so terrible, but acknowledging that you’d like to do better and humbling yourself to accept help from higher sources will improve your lot.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The restless stir that drives today’s action is a sneaking suspicion that a move in any direction at all will land you in a place that’s better than where you currently stand.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Neither, it will seem, can two people – if those two people are you and your loved one. Someone has to back down, and this time it probably won’t be you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are feeling independent and rather sure of yourself. You don’t need outside reassurance, encouragement, opinions, advice, money or support of any kind. You really can do this on your own today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll need to be mighty persuasive because what you want will be different from what others want. If you answer the question “why,” you’ll be halfway there. Then fill in the details, paint pictures with your words, and smile.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Why be kind to yourself every once in a while? Get in the habit of being kind to yourself daily instead. Be tolerant of your own mistakes – they’re what come from trying to do something.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If people don’t give you the favorable response you were looking for, it’s only because you were looking for a favorable response. When you stop caring about their response, they’ll suddenly respect you much more.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll handle the problem today. The resolution you seek requires great personal determination. Don’t get angry – that would only diminish your power. Think positive, stay strong, and take action.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will coolly act out an agenda. It will be as though one part of you is engaged in the business at hand while another part of you is quietly observing the overall direction of your interaction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though you enjoy the comfort and/or adventure of conversation, today you’ll be dealing with people who find talking with others more difficult than physical labor.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Increased passion and drive are your cosmic birthday gifts this year. You’ll put an exclamation mark behind your professional goals and reach new heights in September. October shows you enjoying the time you spend caring for a loved one. November brings a trade that will upgrade your lifestyle. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 22, 38 and 19.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Do you think we’d make a good match? He’s a Virgo, and I’m a Pisces. We’ve been dating for three weeks, and it’s going so well that I honestly think we are in love. My dad says I’m too young to get married (I’m 24!), but honestly I think he’s the one. What do you think?”
Even though you’ve been around for 24 years, you were born under the sign of old souls. Pisces usually have keen intuition and wisdom beyond their years. Pisces can find something to relate to in each person they meet, because they are like a composite of all the other signs of the zodiac. This is why they are so empathetic. But it’s also why they are very impressionable. Pisces have been known to give their love and trust too easily.
It sounds like you are all in with this Virgo. It’s possible that the current position of the sun in his sign and dreamy Neptune’s pulling from across the sky in your sign are intensifying the situation. To be clear, the situation is not love right now; it’s infatuation. People who are infatuated should not marry. Love takes time to develop. So don’t rush. Let things happen naturally and slowly.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Leading man-on-a-mission Chris Pine, who has played Captain Kirk and Jack Frost, will soon try his hand at an entirely different kind of fantasy mission in the role of Cinderella’s prince in the upcoming movie version of “Into the Woods.” Pine was born when four luminaries were in hardworking, healthy Virgo and the moon was in versatile, soulful, artistic Pisces.
