Cosmic Question: Are You Smarter than an Elephant?

In India, owners of baby elephants leash them to trees. The elephant accepts this restriction so fully that even after it has grown to full size and could uproot the tree with one good tug, he stays put. If you are accepting a limitation that is no longer real, the alignment of Mercury, Mars and Neptune will now awaken you to your true power.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be thinking about the big themes: who you are, why you’re here, your contribution to mankind, etc. The time you spend pondering this will raise your awareness whether or not you come up with any answers.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s as though you have something written on your heart that has always been there, but you were too outwardly focused to realize it. Today’s inward focus will allow you to finally read the inscription.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You sometimes feel like your imagination is in limited supply, but that’s not true. The real deal is that you’re not inspired. You need influences, bits of beauty you can cull from. It’s not an indulgence; it’s a necessity.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The spiritual laws that govern your life now will seem to have a solid structure that’s as logical as math. For instance, a series of small thoughts add up to a small life, and a series of big thoughts add up to a big life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t have to be in the same room with people to get to know them well, but it helps. Arrange for an in-person meeting whenever possible because you’ll get an entirely different level of knowledge that way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your success secret today is to focus on the play-by-play motions of a task. As you tend to the process and techniques involved, the results take care of themselves.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One mistake is all it takes to earn a bad reputation, but it takes hundreds of right moves to earn a good one. Go slowly with today’s work. Check and double-check yourself. Take all the time you need to get it right.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are times when you get what you want because you executed each necessary step well. And then there are times when you skip steps and magically still get what you want. The first way is better because it can be repeated.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The game of love is never static. You strive for graceful moves, getting close enough to dance but leaving space in all the right places so you don’t step on anyone’s toes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Leave room for others to help you or for the universe at large to grace you with serendipity. The element of chance favors you with an even better outcome than the one you hoped for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s someone you want to get to know better, but the occasion hasn’t presented itself yet. This isn’t something to force. You’ll sense when the timing is right, and your experience will be sweeter for the wait.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Thank goodness no one has held you to what you said you wanted at 8 years old. And you’ll have compassion for the one who is making declarations he or she is sure to someday regret.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 8). A playful mood prevails. For most of the year, life will seem like a grand exploration or an interesting experiment. This month you’ll stumble upon a better way of getting an important job finished. In March and April, your personal life brims with intrigue. June brings a health breakthrough; July, a reunion. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 3, 33, 39 and 13.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You can’t like someone else if you don’t like yourself. So any time you spend getting to know and accept yourself will also make you more desirable to others. TAURUS: You’ll be attracted to the one who doesn’t seem to care what you think. GEMINI: Just because something is on your mind doesn’t mean you should talk about it. Timing is everything. CANCER: If you can disagree nicely, the difference of opinion will actually make a relationship stronger. LEO: For the sake of teamwork, make decisions together even if it seems unnecessary to do so. VIRGO: You focus on a loved one’s positive qualities, and the list keeps growing. LIBRA: People who look confident may be bluffing. Remember that everyone is vulnerable in some way. SCORPIO: You’ll be asked the question you’ve been waiting to hear. SAGITTARIUS: You don’t need much from a loved one, but what you do need is absolutely essential, so make sure you get it. CAPRICORN: Attraction is a complex phenomenon that is largely but not completely out of your control. You’ll game the system by making yourself irresistible.  AQUARIUS: This is your moment. Soak it all in. PISCES: Love makes anything possible.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Can two Aquarians be more than just friends? With both the sun and the moon in Aquarius this weekend, Aquarians will be more attracted to each other than usual. If they are currently friends, the relationship could take a new direction on Sunday’s new moon. If they are currently sweethearts, the weekend brings an opportunity to go to deeper levels of commitment, fun and familiarity.
