Relationships are structures, built on the foundations of common ground, supported by beams of trust, shared preferences, natural chemistry and more. Secrets are invisible walls that ruin the feng shui. Secrets limit and restrict the flow of energy. The lucky arrangement of Venus and Neptune suggests we open up and share today.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Relationships have rules you agree upon and rules you don’t even know exist. The next 24 hours will make you conscious of some that fall into that second category.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The universe inside you is as vast and complicated as the one outside of you. Sometimes you can forget about this and focus on simple, small joys. But today, you’ve a profound sense of boundlessness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you don’t want to live your life as though it’s a fight, there are certain things to be constantly vigilant against — such as negativity, nastiness and any resistance you might feel to doing the thing you know to be right for you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). By now it should be news to no one that the addictive nature of the internet and the social media culture of comparison can be an enemy of mental health when taken too far. Question of the day: How far is too far?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Movie directors can use flashbacks and alter the timeline of events for dramatic effect. Though you must live your life in linear time, your memories and your expectations will serve to make things interesting… a sort of “director’s cut.”
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s easy to do the right thing when it’s also the thing you want to do. How do you make yourself want, though? There’s some you-to-you hype that will happen today. Research into the subject may help with this pep talk.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Entertainment is the way to travel without leaving. Books, movies and music will take your mind on a mini-vacation and make you a fan of someone new.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some relationships are steady, if a little boring. Others are unpredictable. The same relationships that can take you to heaven can drag you through the muddy depths. It’s good to have both kinds, but in careful doses.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). One drop of ink is all it takes to cloud the whole glass of water. Doubt is like that ink drop. It’s why it’s important to build your belief in yourself and hold on to your faith in general.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is no universal “normal.” Was it normal a hundred years ago? No. Is it normal for the majority of people? No. Would someone profit were you to adopt it as normal for you? Yes. “Normal” is often a sales pitch.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Environments fortify a certain tone. That timbre becomes the general song of the place. The more everyone agrees on what the vibration is, the harder it is for anyone to sing disharmoniously. Use this to your advantage.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In an odd twist, the plans you make will actually help you embrace spontaneity and improvisation. You’ll feel especially lively around air signs, which are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 2). Heartfelt exchanges start your solar return on a sweet note. For three months, excitement happens in groups. There’s magic in amping up your participation where you belong already or investigating new groups. Document life well in September. The financial changes at year-end help you live better in 2019. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 20, 5, 33 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: “I’m a 16-year-old Pisces, and I want to be an actress when I grow up. I would be an actress now, but my family doesn’t have money to send me to acting school. Also, I don’t have a car to go to auditions, if there were any in my small town, which there are not. How do you suggest I get my career going?”
There are two astrological signs that I often mention in relation to the work of an entertainer. One is Leo, the sign of show business, drama, exaggeration and theatrical presentation. And the other is Pisces, which lends strong powers of imagination, empathy, subtlety and kismet. These energies are represented in every person’s chart, though with your sun in Pisces, you are probably more obviously imaginative and artistic than many people you meet. Just because you don’t have transportation or live in a city with an active theater scene doesn’t mean you can’t work on the craft of acting. If you truly want to be an actress you will find things to do to develop yourself in this direction. Brainstorm. I’ll get you started: Read books on acting in the library. Get a play and learn a role by heart. Do a monologue for your family. Start a YouTube channel. Do a character study. Now it’s your turn…
