Horoscopes for Feb. 24, 2014

By
From page A7 | February 24, 2014 |

These are the last days of Mercury’s retrograde, so if you can hold off on signing contracts until Friday, you’ll be on the brighter side of this aspect. But don’t wait until Monday. By then you’ll have two other retrograde planets to contend with. For now, the stabilizing Capricorn moon will be a safety strap to hold onto when things get bumpy.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t change the way you reacted to negative situations of the past, but imagining new and better reactions will change the way you approach future events.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone who has made a mistake will apologize. In accepting the apology, you will see this person in a more flattering light than you did before, proving that “sorry” can be a word for the strong.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are through wishing, wanting and dreaming. You’re ready to act on your goal. Start by listing the actions you need to take in order to make this happen.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel that people are testing you and wonder when you agreed to take such tests. You still have the choice. Walking away is a courageous option.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your cosmic gift is greater self-awareness. This is best put to use in private, quiet moments. When it’s time to be social, don’t let the wave of self-conscious energy dampen the power of your personality.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today’s slice of happiness comes by way of simple economics: If you save your money and then spend what’s left, you’ll be rich. If you spend your money and save what’s left, you’ll cause financial trouble.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your need for a quiet space to do highly focused work is at odds with another person’s noisy, social style. A compromise will be necessary, but don’t give up too much, or you’ll grow to resent the deal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those who think they are too small to make a difference are likely to complain. You are bigger than the problem, so instead of griping about it, you’ll just handle it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Once you agree to do something, part of your mind will be preoccupied with searching for a loophole. That’s natural, but it’s not helpful to your efforts. Remind yourself of the reasons why you’ve chosen your path.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In-the-know types are all too eager to impart their knowledge to you. If information is true and works well, those who teach it should be living it, too. Are they?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re not trying to be anyone; you’re just being you. And yet, the situation calls for action that you’re not used to. You are going to have to grow and stretch a bit to accommodate this one.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s a long-term, no-luck conservative plan you could start implementing now for a better financial future. Then, whatever good fortune you encounter will be like icing on your freedom cake.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your actions will not only be inspired through March; they also will be organized and expertly executed. You’ll earn an award in April for a game well played. May brings the start of an exciting team effort. Legal matters are settled in June. Travels in July and October will invigorate your personal life. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 15, 17, 2 and 10.

MERCURY RETROGRADE Rx: This Mercury retrograde is almost over. If you’ve come this far relatively unscathed, it would be a shame to be snagged by some kind of misunderstanding this late in the game. Steer clear with these communication tips.

1. Talk to people, not at them. Since most communication happens with your body and tone of voice, how you say things will make a bigger impact than what you say. Make sure to establish a connection before you deliver your message, and you’ll be more likely to be heard, understood and followed.

2. Make each communication unique. Don’t you hate talking to robots on the telephone? Everyone does. It’s so much easier to speak with someone who can concentrate on you specifically, instead of on people in general. No one is “people.” Since each person in the world is different and unique, avoid cookie-cutter messaging.

3. Get to the point. Listening, if it’s done well, is hard work. That’s why the good listeners are few and far between. If you’re lucky enough to be talking to one, don’t tax the relationship. Successful communicators cut out the superfluous and the irrelevant.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As Tom Haverford on “Parks and Recreation,” Aziz Ansari is a busy man about town, much like he is in real life, as he simultaneously juggles his career as a standup comedian, actor and foodie. In his newly released comedy special “Dangerously Delicious,” this Pisces riffs on his fears of adulthood. Born under a sensitive Cancer moon, he is keenly aware of his feelings on most topics.
