Lunar squares overhead. We all hit those moments when nothing seems to be going right, not the computer, not the project, not the relationship… it’s all rolling along on square wheels. It takes leverage and smarts to get it moving, but at least it’s not hurling out of control. Since being faster isn’t an option, take the opportunity to be smarter.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to be near people who are having a good time. You think it will rub off on you. But it will only rub off on you if you’re somewhat interested in the subject of the good time. Go where there’s a match of ideology.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll never be bored today. You’ll look at everything and store it up. You’ll arrange and rearrange this collection of facts, details and tangibles until something makes sense, or until it’s time to sleep, whichever comes first.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes you stuff your feelings down like a person trying to fit one more thing into an over-full trash bin. But feelings aren’t cast-off refuse. They’re worthy of being set on the shelf. Examined. Maybe even admired.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It gets better when you get better. Or maybe you make it better, and then you get better, too. Either way, the thing to do is to be actively hopeful. That won’t be difficult for you at this busy time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While there are those who would go to great lengths for treasure and tribute, you’re mild on the idea. What does it really mean, anyway? When you’re fully rich on the inside, no amount of external validation can make you richer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Saying nothing says something. It says a lot, actually. Today the silent response has meanings including, but not limited to, ”I disagree,” ”I have a secret,” ”I can’t be bothered with this,” and ”I’m processing the emotional impact of this.”
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You sense when people need their space and when they need to feel closer to you. As you honor the unspoken requests of others, they invest increasing amounts of trust in you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In searching for your advantage in a situation, take this suggestion from Thomas Jefferson: ”Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.”
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want them to follow your plan. It’s not an easy ask right now. How can you make them want and need to follow your plan instead of making them feel as though they have to follow it?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re proud to have powerful friends, but sometimes this makes you feel, by comparison, less successful than them. Success is measured in many different ways. What will it take to broaden your definition?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People say they need their freedom, and then they head straight for a different kind of prison. Structure trumps freedom. It’s finding the right structure that’s the key, though, and that’s what you’re searching for now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve been known to put yourself in stressful situations just to see if you can find your way out. Of course you can, silly. You don’t have to do this to yourself, and it’s kind of a waste of time today. So stop it!
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 7). A windfall starts this solar return on a high note. One of your cosmic gifts now is that you’re mysterious to people, and they want to get to know you better. You’ll have more social opportunity than you know what to do with this year. April brings a fantasy to life. Regarding your personal life: July beckons you in a new direction. Sagittarius and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 39, 2, 21 and 48.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: ”I like to sit in my room and think about things. Some of my favorite things to think about are: people I know; things I might do; what I want to make; what I wish would, or suspect will, happen; reality; god; and combinations of those things. When I concentrate, I am very aware of a tingling sensation in my body. It happens in different places — my eye, the top of my head, my toe, my nose, my belly, etc. I wonder what it means. I’m a Scorpio.”
You are very deep indeed, dear Scorpio — and so is your intuition. I believe that these tingling sensations are messages from your higher self. The interpretations are a personal matter that you can sort out by keeping track in a journal of what you were thinking at the time of the sensation, where the sensation occurred in your body and, finally, the outcome of the situation. Many psychics find that a tingling sensation in the entire head, forehead, lips, nose, belly and fingertips are good omens. Some say that a sensation in the back of the head, neck, ears and feet are negative omens. But again, this is very personal, and the best method is to keep track like a scientist.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aquarius Chris Rock is touring the world with his comedy this year, and he’s also the executive producer of the television talk show series, ”The Rundown with Robin Thede.” A humor so uninhibited takes courage and a unique point of view, which are two Aquarian strengths. Rock was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in Aquarius and the moon was in fiery Aries.
