Horoscopes for Feb. 25, 2014

By
From page B5 | February 24, 2014 |

The square of Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Aries reminds us that much good comes out of a happy home. But if we’re not happy at home, it’s very difficult to succeed anywhere else. Tend to your relationships and get them in good working order. Do what’s necessary to bring harmony into your house.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Does love have a place in your current practical, organized mood? Yes! As long as it fits into your schedule. Rest assured, if you have a good plan, spontaneous things can still happen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One of your role models isn’t fit for the job. This is especially true if you have made the common mistake of casting a movie star in that position. Seek guidance from those with real-world accomplishments.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Usually, before you act, you like to think about who will be affected by the action and what is likely to happen next. But today you’ll feel so strongly that processing is more of an afterthought.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Since you can only rise as high as your comfort level, why not get comfortable with a new and higher level? Go where you’ll be surrounded with beauty, elegance and good taste.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Take the time to organize your efforts and test a few different methods to be sure you’ve chosen the best one. You’ll operate quickly once you have a proven system in place.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The only danger is in giving up too quickly. Forge ahead. Put your ideas in fine, presentation-ready form. The boss is likely to be impressed with what you come up with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The reason you don’t readily judge others is that you can never be sure what you would do were you faced with the same pressures. For this afternoon’s circumstances, it will be best to use discernment instead of judgment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are generous, but you also realize that giving can be an imposition. You’ll consider carefully the wants and desires of a person before you make a move.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You feel like a child of chance, and in many ways you are. Much of what happens, the good and the bad, is out of your control. That’s why it’s so important to take charge of all that actually is in your realm of influence.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are some things you just have to trust, and you’re better off not attempting to hedge your bets and not making a big fuss about it. The faith that demands proof isn’t faith.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll stick with your preferred crew – those who seem to bring out your most natural state of being – and enjoy the company of those who understand and accept the real you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Imagining exciting times ahead will be half of the fun. Believe it. The preparations for the future will count. And the best part is that you’ll also enjoy the process of getting ready.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. What you do for others comes full circle, and you’ll be celebrated big time this month. In March, you’ll take charge of a part of your life that has been difficult to get a handle on in the past. April and May feature you in a leadership position, and you’ll be well paid for it, too. June and September are the most adventurous. Scorpio and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 22, 19, 29 and 21.

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. Here are three more stellar communication tips.

1. Wants and needs come first. The immature way to communicate is to come out with whatever information happens to be on the top of your head. Mature communicators understand that not everyone should have to hear that. Each person you talk to has wants and needs. What can you give them that would be of value because it’s amusing, funny, crucial, interesting, loving or extremely relevant to that person’s wants and needs?

2. Consider each person’s role. People get in trouble when they communicate in a way that’s outside of the role they are supposed to be playing. When a boss talks as a close friend or a romantic partner speaks like a parent would, it can cause confusion and awkwardness. Stay within the communication style appropriate to the relationship.

3. Put your ego last. Most communication fails happen simply because one person wants recognition, validation, acknowledgment and praise more than he or she wants a genuine connection with another person. It starts with empathy.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pisces actress Emily Blunt will play the Baker’s Wife in the all-star cast of the film version of the beloved musical “Into the Woods.” Blunt was born when the sun and Mars were in sensitive Pisces, and her Cancer moon adds to the psychic water-sign energy flowing through her natal chart. Lucky planet Jupiter in outgoing Sagittarius bodes well for her international appeal.
