The Aquarius moon wears many hats – philanthropist, intellectual, party planner and card-carrying member of the technorati. The latter role is featured now, as Mercury’s retrograde has seemingly turned our devices against us. This astral backdrop may inspire you to learn deeper and more useful functions for your computerized companions.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s not exactly glamorous fun today, yet you should be proud to be doing something that makes life better for other people. It makes life better for you, too!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll discover new ways to take care of yourself inside and out. Having help in this regard will make all the difference in your ability to create lasting positive feelings and results.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Because you don’t need a lot of extra attention, instruction and handholding, you’ll be included in exclusive situations in which you are expected to hold your own.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your good karma is swinging back around to you. Benevolent forces offer behind-the-scenes support. The hard evidence will emerge later, but in a perceptive moment, you may feel the soft lift of your spirit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have better things to do, yet some irritating technicality may prevent you from doing them. What if you believed that this is by design? It could be that what you think is better is actually worse.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like to be respected, but too much attention makes you uncomfortable. Accomplished people such as you need to hang out with the similarly accomplished. The mutual adulation will be comfortably mild.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The action will unfold out of your dedication to another person’s well-being. There are many benefits that come from sharing and relating to others, but those benefits do not motivate your kindness.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Events trigger you to feel prosperous, which arguably could mean you actually are prosperous. And if your means do not currently reflect this, they will.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Something occurs to help you see yourself differently than you did before. It’s likely that this has to do with a friend’s view of you. Every day, you’re becoming more and more comfortable with who you are.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Infatuation can happen from a distance, but love can’t grow without exposure. The more time you spend with a certain someone the likelier you are to win this person’s heart.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s something new going on in an old relationship. You may feel inspired to give the one you love that special enthusiasm you used to give when you first met.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Other people may seem slow on the uptake, but that’s just because you are mentally moving at a million miles a minute. It’s probably better not to delegate, because you’ll do it better, more quickly and more cheaply alone.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Anyone who partners with you will be lucky. You’ll selflessly commit to a relationship, and the bond grows strong. Travel in December has lucrative results. Family ties help business in January. In February, a strange series of events produces a wonderful personal development. March brings a move. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 40, 11, 19 and 30.
HOLIDAY COPING STRATEGIES BY SIGN: ‘Tis the season to remember that as fantastic and horrible as things get in families, you’re pretty much stuck with one another. Blood is thicker than water – though generally not so fun to drink or swim in. ARIES: If you see an in, declare yourself the leader and start making decisions for the group. Be decisive and quick so they won’t know what hit ‘em. And if you can make your decisions seem like the group’s, you’ll be even more effective. TAURUS: Make yourself comfortable. Others learn from your “chill” example. Calm and steady wins the race, and it also wins whatever ridiculous argument is going on at the moment. GEMINI: Chances are that your family can be clueless – not as individuals but as a group. They can collectively not notice that they drove away and left Timmy at the truck stop or that Aunt Jane is tipsy and needs coffee or that the dog has been licking the turkey legs. That’s OK. You’re clue-full. Drop those clues, generously and often. Eventually, everyone will get the answer, even if you have to supply it for everyone. – Paraphrased from my book, “Rock Your Stars: Your Astrological Guide to Getting It All”
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Scorpio superstar Jodie Foster will star with Matt Damon in a futuristic action film set in the year 2159. As audiences have learned over the years from movies such as “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Contact,” Foster’s honesty brings a chilling realism to even the most outlandish or fanciful scenarios. With four natal luminaries in Scorpio, Foster would find it difficult to deliver anything other than the truth.
