Today’s public service announcement heralds from the Sagittarius moon: It’s contentment, and not money, that makes a person rich. But people have a hard time being content with what they have when their neighbors seem to have more. Therefore, the key to true riches may be in adopting the simple motto: “Mind your own business.”
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Everything has its time. The object that is coveted, revered and utterly reflective of this moment will lose value after this moment has passed. It’s something to think about before you take out your wallet.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your cells regenerate, and your spirit restores. It’s like you’re becoming younger with every hour today, and you don’t have to make any kind of effort to do so. You’re naturally optimistic.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People who aren’t sure whether they can help you or not will be reserved until they determine exactly how they can be of service. Make it easy. Talk about what will move you forward.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your weaknesses are offset by your considerable strengths. But just think about what you could do in a partnership with someone who is strong in the areas where you are weak. Seek collaboration.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Giving is not always a sacrifice. Being generous has a way of exhilarating you, especially when you see the difference your contributions make in the lives of others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Strip away some of what you were taught. It’s not that the lessons were wrong or inferior; it’s just that they were given to you from someone else’s experience. Work from your own experience instead.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No one can give you more time, but people can sure help you waste the time you have. Actively guard against distractions. Anticipate what could happen to knock you off your game, and prepare a defense.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be working by yourself. This scenario makes it challenging to know how you compare to others in the marketplace. Ask both insiders and outsiders their opinion. Get another point of view.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you follow your whimsy, it might be considered lollygagging. It might also lead to enormous joy. If you have fun with what you’re doing, you’ll find success.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t want to put your signature on your work; you want your work to be your signature. When people can tell it’s your work by the work itself, you’ll have reached the level of originality you desire.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Love is a bit of an obstacle course these days, and you may find yourself tunneling under or scaling over enormous barriers to emotional intimacy. It makes jumping through the hoops seem like child’s play.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Lie detectors are designed on the premise that dishonesty causes bodily stress. You’ll take some of the pressure off by getting rid of the expectation or rule that is keeping people from telling the truth.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You bring self-care to a new level this year, and this favorably affects everyone. An investment will pay in five weeks. October shakes up relationships and sets you on a more pleasurable course. Make the most of educational opportunities in November and July – doing well sets the tone for your financial future. Capricorn and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 44, 2, 14, 38 and 5.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I have a recurring dream in which I’m going to school or some other public place and suddenly realize that I’m not wearing some crucial item of clothing or, worse, that I can’t find my clothes at all. It’s so disturbing that waking up is a terrific relief. Why do I keep dreaming this? I’m a Cancer.”
Nudity is among the most common of dream themes, even for a sensitive Cancer like you, who generally carries a shell everywhere. To get to the meaning, think about what clothing represents in society. Humans dress for the roles they play. Our costumes suggest our identity in life, even though they are not who we really are. The idea of having nothing to wear can be metaphoric for not knowing how we fit in, what we’re comfortable doing or what role we should play.
Nudity also can symbolize feeling vulnerable, ashamed or afraid of being disgraced. Is there something you would rather people didn’t know about you? The exact interpretation is highly personal to you, and you are the best one to find it. Do so by exploring the ways in which you may be feeling overexposed.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Grammy- and Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson stays true to her Virgo roots as a Weight Watchers spokeswoman for health and fitness. Another strong current in her astrological chart is Libra. Hudson has five luminaries in this diplomatic sign. Should this talented participant in political events and functions at the White House ever decide to go into politics, she’d do very well.
