The total eclipse of the sun will add a sense of permanence to your decisions. That’s not to say that whatever you decide will be a permanent choice, but it will feel that way. So focus on what you’d love to let go of and wave goodbye. This Scorpio new moon of renewal will help you transform and move on.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s been said that a large building needs a solid foundation. But actually, the same is true for any size building. Respect whatever scale you are working on today. Even small things need to be done right.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Talk about the dreams that bring meaning to your life. Others will be inspired to help you. If they have the means to do this, they will let you know. If not, they are helping just by listening.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Asking too many questions will lead to further confusion. Learn through observation. Declare what is. You’ll be amazed at what you can gather without pushing and prodding for more information.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will enjoy an engaging tour of someone else’s reality. You’ll love the experience as long as you’re reasonably sure you are free to leave this world at any time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may feel a bit like a hamster in a wheel, running exuberantly and staying in one place. What’s so wrong with that? As any hamster knows, the running itself feels terrific, and it always brings you back home.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your actions will be guided by your aspirations. That they are lofty, to say the least, is no matter. Your faith is the magic ingredient that makes the unattainable quite attainable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can remain open and learn, as long as you really believe in the person imparting knowledge. If this person has gained your trust, you will refrain from being defensive as you soak up all there is to know.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your routine has become a kind of prediction. You expect that habits A, B and C will naturally lead to the result of D. But today something different will happen to challenge your prediction.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There was a scenario in your recent past that didn’t go the way you wanted it to. To change your destiny, imagine the same scene playing out in the way you wish it would have gone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll solve a puzzle quickly when you start at the end and work your way backward. It’s not cheating. It’s finding an advantage in looking at things in a different way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Being hard on yourself can lead to becoming successful and strong. But sometimes you take it too far. You may not even realize the grudge you were holding against yourself until today’s events inspire you to let it go.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You need extra care, and you deserve to get it. Encourage, coach and pamper yourself. Treat yourself in the same way you would a child or a fragile friend.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Highlight what’s different about you. These advantages will get you noticed in a good way. Professional kudos in the next six weeks will be followed by a pay raise. January brings mutual romantic feelings, joint travel and adventure. In March, you’ll be the recipient of a grant or an act of kindness. Leo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 39 and 15.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Last year I saw a comedy show and was immediately smitten. I’m convinced that our stars are perfectly aligned. What do you think of a relationship between a Libra guy (10/3/1980) and comedian Chelsea Peretti (2/20/1978)?”
I get it. Pisces comedian and television writer Chelsea Peretti is adorable and real, and the omens indicate that her professional status is on the rise. Have you dated comedians before? If not, you might be surprised to find out that as a general rule comedians are much more sensitive and subdued than their stage acts project. Being the life of the party on the outside requires a person to be extremely attentive to an inner world filled with the ingredients of comedy, which are: 1. Truth and 2. Pain. In my experience, the insightful individuals attracted to this profession are often a bit shy, and they cherish their alone time. Peretti is a Pisces with Venus in Pisces, too, indicating an attraction to artistic individuals, a love of music and a sensitive heart. Her moon and Saturn in Leo indicates that she is driven to make a significant mark in entertainment and is likely to put work before romance. And you might be fine with this, given that your moon and Venus are in Leo.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The ubiquitous Whoopi Goldberg recently appeared as Carmen Tibideaux on the hit television series “Glee.” Multitalented Goldberg was born when the sun, the moon, Mercury and Saturn were all in Scorpio, suggesting she’s keenly attuned to the inner emotional life of the people around her. She may also be quite psychic. Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto in Leo shows a natural-born performer.
