Venus and Pluto still in opposition have us looking at the big picture. What exactly are the stakes? There has to be something important to win or lose, or there is no reason to play the game. That’s not to say the prize is tangible – some of the best aren’t. Maybe it’s a matter of self-respect, pride or simply the confirmation of strength and ability.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll hear something you said long ago repeated back to you in a different context. The good news is they were listening. More good news: You’re having an affect on them. They’re changed because of you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What you desire will change you – the transformation is inevitable. You need to become someone new in order to have something new. A Scorpio will be the ideal guide in this process.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll never know how things would’ve been if your original plan had worked out, but the current circumstance is pretty great. That’s why you continue to go with the flow instead of forcing things into your own framework.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those who are interested in you are also able to help you. It’s safe to be candid about what you want. Confess your big wishes first. Why waste time on the little ones?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you like something, you get into it. You like it all the way. Your enthusiasm somehow creates more to be enthusiastic about, and your passion will attract followers, too.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have no interest in selling people on what they don’t really need or want. That’s why you regularly ask yourself and others what value you are providing. Today produces great answers.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll see someone – maybe in a picture – and think: I love that person. And you’ll send that person a quick shot of love, heart to heart, and it’s felt even though you haven’t really connected or talked with them in years.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re not asking others to do anything you wouldn’t do yourself. However, you should know that you’re driving yourself unusually hard these days, and others might not be able to go at the same intensity.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re in touch with your human ancestry, though you’ve taken it to a new level. You’re a hunter of ideas, a gatherer of allies. You’ll survive and thrive in these endeavors now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll put your efforts into situations that look both promising and lucrative. But if either one of those criteria is missing, you’ll skip it now, and wisely so.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll make a play for a result you think will be pleasing to you. Just remember that you’re making an attempt, and if it doesn’t work, you can change your attempt. It’s not who you are; it’s just what you’re doing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re susceptible to influence, but being easily influenced becomes a positive thing when your influences are people of exemplary character and remarkable talent.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The next seven weeks bring financial good fortune and creative fun. A mending in your personal life will happen in September. October brings an infusion of physical strength, perhaps because you try a new diet or exercise program. November brings knowledgeable assistance for what you really want to do. Taurus and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 11, 48 and 5.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “He talks about getting married, but then he doesn’t ever ask me. Do you think he’s the one I should marry? He’s a Gemini, and I’m a Libra. He’s in finance, and I’m in agriculture. He has a humongous family of politicians, lawyers and businesspeople. I come from farmers. I moved to Virginia to be with him, and we’ve been together for five years. Our physical connection is still going strong. We don’t live together, we’re both in our 30s, and I think if we’re going to have a family, we should get started. How do you feel about us?”
You are two air signs who love the idea of things and are open to outside influences to help you decide whether or not to bring those ideas into being. So here are a few questions for you:
You come from vastly different backgrounds. But do you share the same values?
You’ve made a sacrifice moving to be with him. Has he made sacrifices for you?
Do you have a good time when you travel together? Move furniture together? Talk about the future together?
If you can answer “yes” to all of these questions, consider just laying it out on the line for your Gemini. Tell him you’re ready to start a family with him, and the time is now.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Few women in history have been as revered for their style, grace and poise as former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and she is continually celebrated as an iconic American and New Yorker, most recently with a plaque in Grand Central Station, at Park Avenue and 42nd Street, dedicating a newly renovated entrance to this advocate of the landmark building.
