The Capricorn sun helps us see ourselves as others do, and this knowledge, though not entirely accurate or complete, is nonetheless helpful to our progress. Tomorrow the sun leaves the steady, self-assured realm of Capricorn to conquer the unknown future of Aquarius. Stand in what you know, and assess your position.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you don’t have to lose to gain. Maybe you’ve been carrying around a void long enough and there’s plenty of room for a wonderful treat to drop into your life. Go with that theory, and your attitude will attract it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t help your feelings or your reaction to people. But you can control your exposure to them. Arranging for more good feelings has to do with being around the people who make you feel good.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Choosing the right medium for your message will be important. Should you text or call? Should you show up in person or create a mystery post on a website? Let your stellar sense of style dictate.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s an old saying: “Pay the piper.” In your case, the piper may not have been invited to play in the first place, which will make paying him a bit challenging on a psychological level.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Unconditional love seems like it should be everyone’s birthright, and yet it is a rare commodity. Can you give it? If you do, you won’t ever be able to unlove the recipient of this gift.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Stating what you want lets others know something about who you are. That’s why you sometimes prefer to keep your wants quiet. You’ll be in a private mood, and you’re still not sure whom you can trust.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Being creative gives you a lift unlike anything else now. You’ll touch on the higher places of your psyche and stretch into the outer reaches of your physical capabilities, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Who wouldn’t want to be smarter, stronger and richer? The drive to do so may feel urgent today, but it will lessen as the weekend progresses. Don’t be fooled: Happiness is embracing who you are now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mind is like a pond. Do something to keep the water agitated, or the algae and mosquitoes will take over. Challenging activities and people will freshen your outlook.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Does this scene look a lot like yesterday’s? That’s a plus. This is the new “normal”: the ordinary circumstances that will provide your best opportunity for doing extraordinary things.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). True, you are similar to other members of the human race, and yet you are also quite unlike any being who’s ever been created. Therefore, it would be wrong to compare yourself to the others. Don’t do it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s better to be patient than to waste time and mental resources on speculation. This is a case where the best answer is: Wait and see. If you can accept that, you are wise indeed.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You do what’s right without worry as to the outcome, believing that good always wins out in the end. The victories you experience this month and in March set a precedent. Your social swirl gets wide and fun in February. Make a decision about where you’ll live in April so you can settle in and concentrate on your career. Gemini and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 24 and 12.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m almost due to have my first child, and if all goes as expected, she will be an Aquarius like me. What do you say to Aquarian moms? I’m older than most and don’t have a lot of family around to help me, so I hope I will adapt to motherhood easily. Also, I’m single, so there’s that.”
Yours is the sign of the future, and your child will keep you young and excited about the times you live in. Just know that you don’t have to do anything as your parents did or as society tells you. Aquarius moms are at their best when they solve problems in their own creative, inventive ways. Yield to your poetic whimsy. Motherhood is a chance for you to lead your child’s attention to the world as you see it: a fascinating place filled with endless possibilities.
Of course, this wonder-filled mindset will be easier for you to hold onto if you get the help you need. It will be more than you think. Be open to investigating sources of love and care from professional services to friends and family. You need time to care for yourself, too, so don’t be stingy in this regard!
