Some rules have rather obvious reasons for being created in the first place. Safety, security, health and well-being are among the best of those reasons. The rules created to make people feel good and get along are not usually stated on road signs or enforced by police, but considering today’s Mars transit, maybe they should be.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You like to have a detailed understanding about all that’s in your environment, and today you’ll connect with someone who can help you broaden your knowledge. The more you know the more comfortable and confident you feel.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Have a talk with your thoughts. The unsupportive ones have been taking up too much real estate in your brain. Ask for all supportive notions to come forward.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It does no good to dwell on your dissatisfaction with the way things are. An ailing situation can and will get better once you land on a vision of the way you want it to be. Think about what a long-range solution would look like.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Something you understand, dear crab, is that the waves are not influenced by the wishes of man or mermaid or fish. They are obedient only to the pull of the moon. Likewise, you’ll respond to a higher force.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may suddenly realize that your situation calls for a different kind of energy than the kind you’ve been applying to it. You’ll cause a shift by demonstrating a different mood and tone. Others will follow your lead.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Explore your curiosities. Today it’s as futile to resist a natural attraction as it is to defy a physical force like gravity. Besides, maybe there’s a good reason you want what you want.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have many regrets, because you realize that you can, at any point, make a new choice. Even if you can’t take on a new venture at this time, it’s never too late to be who you want to be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Recognize that even though your feelings are real, they may not pertain to the current situation. Triggers from the past may still be influencing your reaction to the present.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be excellent at doing what’s right in front of you. If it’s next to you or behind you, you’re going to assume someone else is handling it or that it’s already been dealt with.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today is a bit of a travesty, but don’t worry. The commonly mistaken definition of “travesty” – an unfortunate event – will not apply. It’s the real meaning – a false or distorted representation – that will apply.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). “Do your best” is a cliche at risk of losing real meaning if left unexamined. How do you do your best? You apply yourself, and all you have and know, with full respect and attention to the task at hand.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What you put your money into is the least of your investments. Your time and attention are far more precious than money, and your loved ones know this.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll get to know an interesting new someone, and this changes the flow of your year. September brings funding for an important goal. You’ll be involved with a special event in November and will be credited with its success. Practice and prepare, because January is your chance at a high position. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 33, 25, 48 and 15.
MARS ENTERS LEO: The old saying advises to fight fire with fire. And while a water hose, blanket or extinguisher may seem more appropriate for small fires, one of the chief ways of containing a large fire such as a forest fire is a controlled burn of anything around the fire that is likely to set flame. Unburnable boundaries. Fire can’t spread where there’s nothing left to ignite. These are the types of tactics that can help us keep cool and in control during the six-week passage of Mars in Leo.
Mars is already a hothead. He’s the angry red warrior planet who rules the fire sign Aries: intensity, passion and testosterone. Mars doesn’t need anyone to egg him on, but Leo cannot resist. The proud lion tends to puff up the chest of any planet in his zone, and Mars is no exception. With this aggressor in the exaggerated realm of the sky, it’s a good time to actively head off potential conflict. Stay away from hot topics like religion, politics and anyone else’s mom. Watch team sports with people who are rooting for the same team. Make a conscious effort to stay on the good side of your hot-tempered family members. If everyone plays nice, it will be nice to play.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Spy Kids” star Alexa Vega has more than 50 titles in her filmography and several projects coming out over the next few years. Hard work is what Virgo people enjoy, and Vega has both her sun and Mercury in that diligent station. A soulful Pisces moon favors both acting and music. Vega, who is also a pianist and recording artist, could have great success with a role that encompasses all of these talents.
