Horoscopes for Feb. 26, 2014

By
From page B5 | February 26, 2014 |

The situation between Jupiter and Uranus will be ongoing through next month, but already we are starting to see reversals: changes in fashion, social trends and politics, including conservatives turning liberal and vice versa. The lighthearted and intellectual Aquarius moon will help us keep a healthy perspective on things.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The littlest people are the ones who believe there is such a thing as little people. Truly important people treat everyone with respect. Those who are nasty to their underlings are suffering from low self-esteem.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a mood to keep things brief. You want to get in, get to the point and get out. If you can’t avoid the fountain-of-information types altogether, you can at least avoid asking them any questions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even if you have guts, there will be no glory, because no one will be handing out rewards for the things that really matter. Then again, the things that really matter are usually their own reward.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Knowledge-seeking is the order of the day. Choose your topics well. There are some kinds of learning that bring no joy. Also, knowledge cannot bring the peace of mind that comes from wisdom.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Unacquainted with the rules of polite conversation, there are those who simply haven’t been taught which topics to avoid. You’ll have to take the reins and steer away from religion, politics, health problems and the like.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In order to regale people with stories of your travels, you have to have some first. It’s a hot topic for you now, as you dream, research and plan a future adventure.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Complete responsibilities, and clear the decks as early in the day as possible. The afternoon brings intellectual challenges for which a mind tied up in unfinished business will be of little help.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If there’s one thing you could be to make life easier on yourself today, it’s a good listener who is patient and careful not to interrupt. Listening well will save you from making unnecessary mistakes.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it’s time to team up, you’ll be chosen quickly. It has something to do with your knack for turning ordinary situations into something of a game.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It may feel as though you want to spend every moment with the one you love madly, but that wouldn’t be as fun as it sounds. Space and freedom are essential to the health of relationships.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because you’re genuinely interested in others, they easily open up to you. Avoid getting overly involved, though. You’re fine with hearing someone vent a bit, but don’t let them dump too much negativity on you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People want to please you now, but they won’t know exactly how to do this until you clarify your boundaries and expectations. Tell them what to bring to the party, and they’ll bring it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The next three weeks bring inspirational influences to keep you motivated all year long. March brings money and a new financial strategy. Casual relationships don’t stay casual when you promise something in May. June is your chance to see more of the world. Excellent company makes for magical travels. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 27, 3, 41, 5 and 33.

MERCURY RETROGRADE Rx: Friday ends this Mercury retrograde. 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. For successful communication:

1. Interrupt on purpose. Most people interrupt mindlessly because they suddenly feel like expressing themselves regardless of the fact that another person is talking. The only time to interrupt is when it serves the greater good of all involved to do so. If you’re going to interrupt, make sure you have an important purpose for doing so.

2. Tuck the phone away. No one can concentrate effectively while splitting focus between a phone screen and a live person. Amazingly, many people don’t realize how rude they are being as they try to toggle between the two.

3. Listen to the feedback of your feelings. Dialog that comes from stressed-out people is usually dysfunctional. Notice what’s going on in your body so you can recognize when you’re becoming stressed and take the moment you need to calm down.

4. Find the funny. Joking around is not always appropriate, but often humor is the standout ingredient of winning communication.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: During the 2013 holiday season, balladeer Michael Bolton was featured, self-parody style, rocking a series of Honda commercials. This isn’t the first time this Pisces has been involved in advertising; he performed in several ads in the early ’80s, mostly for soda companies. Bolton was born when Jupiter, the good-fortune planet, was in Taurus, the sign that rules the voice.
