Uranus, the planet of chaos, revolution, excitement and change, has decided to give us a reprieve. Typically, when planets go retrograde, it activates the worst in them. But Uranus is such a bad boy to begin with that the change of direction tends to activate his more docile side – if such a side exists. We shall see over the next five months.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will aspire to be the best, understanding fully that “the best” isn’t always the most awarded or promoted person. Time will tell, because often “the best” can only be determined in retrospect.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In today’s case, new ideas are just old ideas turned upside down or sideways or snuggled up against other ideas you’ve had in the past. So don’t worry about coming up with anything. Just play with what you already have.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Healthy communication is clear, concise and honest and reflects high self-esteem. When you feel the conversation drift off course, take responsibility for it and try to bring it back – you may be the only one who knows how.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Indifference has a way of attracting people, as you’ll be reminded today. The thing or person you don’t care about will seem to follow you from place to place, asking for your approval.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be thankful for the opportunities of the day before you even know what they are. You expect doors to open up, and you’ll keep your eyes open for such things, fully aware that the best doors don’t look like doors at all.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know when enough is enough. Your social intelligence tells you when too much is too much. You don’t always follow that voice in your head, but you acknowledge when it’s right.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Being the most popular isn’t always being the best. That’s what you’re figuring out these days as you weigh your popularity against the hard evidence of numbers. Should adjustments be made?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re really wise. Have you ever considered that maybe your ideas are the best, but people are just not listening to you because they have their own agenda? Don’t discredit your wisdom.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). More and more, you think about the things that would be fun for you – maybe a trip, maybe a class or a break or some time to yourself. Who can help you make that happen? Make the call.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Confucius said there is beauty everywhere but not everyone can see it. You can see it. You can see it more vividly than the others, and you’ll communicate this effectively.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a sense that you’re not letting yourself be as big, strong, powerful or loud as you could be, that you’re holding something back in good taste and good judgment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Skillful actors know when to go for the laugh, but they also know when to kill it in order to go for an even bigger payoff later. You will be navigating a similar decision this afternoon.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You have an attraction secret that you use often this year to bring the most interesting people and circumstances into your world. It’s your attitude – you stay in the moment instead of wishing things were different. It will bring you money in August, love in September and travel in October. A new Capricorn or Leo person adores you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 24, 39, 7 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “The orbs I have encountered are bluish, reddish and mostly white light. They hop from bed to bed, and I don’t much know about their origin, just that they exist. Do they mean I’ll have a child? Do they mean my death is imminent? Do they mean I’ll be all right? That’s what I feel overall, that I’ll be all right. Won’t I? I will be all right, won’t I? Will I be all right?”
Overwhelmingly, yes! You’ll be just fine, you will. You’ll be all right. You will thrive, in fact, and you should not be afraid of the orbs. They are just energy. Take the energy as a good sign that you are open to seeing and experiencing other realms, and don’t be afraid. The other dimensions are dancing with you, and there doesn’t need to be a meaning to it. You can trust that there is no harm in this exchange. Just relax and be. Whatever you’re worried about, let it rest. The orbs are a good sign for you, and there’s nothing you need to do about them. Relax and be.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Young standup comedian Joey Bragg is a Cancer with a big future. His role on Disney Chanel’s hit series “Liv and Maddie” is just a peek into what this comedic actor can do. With the sun and Mercury in Leo, the sign of the entertainment industry, he’ll likely navigate from actor to director to producer faster than anyone in his generation of stars.
