Help Is On the Way

Mercury spins through the final stretch of Capricorn and breaks into Aquarius in the night. Inaction is wise. Too much is changing now to choose the best strategy. Wait to see how the dust settles before you make a move. The weeks to come will bring people like-minded people with similar goals and a helpful motives.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Remember people’s names. It’s the only way to interact fully. If you can remember people’s names, you’ll be at ease and relate in a manner that’s meaningful to you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As for the less than optimal habits you’ve picked up along the way, you’ll lose them in much the same way — by taking action one day at a time. You’re the master of baby steps.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will let yourself heal. It’s a simple and relaxed process. You’ll steer your mind well and without force, finding peace and forgiveness inside yourself.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll gravitate to those who compliment you— it’s only smart. You don’t seek acknowledgement, but you know who is likely to give it to you. You’ll get the encouragement you need to move forward.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you accept an idea as the truth without examination, you are in a hypnotic state of sorts. In some sense you will hear the snap of fingers and wake up, realizing that the situation you’re in requires a different level of awareness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone likes a mystery, especially when it comes in the form of a person. You’ll be the new one in a room. Leaving out major details of who you are will create a problem to solve.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When events unfold haphazardly there is always a chance for a do-over in the theater of your mind. Play the scene over, only this time behave in exactly your preferred manner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Whatever your feeling, in that moment it seems you will always feel that way. But feelings are like clouds — they change and pass. It’s something to consider before you make major decisions based on them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a teacher and so is your student. Today’s experience of sharing will humble you both, even whilst making you both masters.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you’re pretty self-sufficient, you still like to be reminded every once in a while that you’re doing a good job, fighting the good fight, and generally trying to do what’s best.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Should you fight for what you want or accept what is? Maybe a little of both. As long as you’re paying attention, you’ll know which way to go at any given moment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll pick up on what’s going on just outside the range of your vision. This relates to your eyes and also your spirituality. Your peripheral vision is related strongly to psychic awareness.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 18). You’ll hone a talent in the next three months. New methods and levels of relaxation help you get more comfortable and masterful. March brings a loving force into your world. Children imitate you and family gives you an important responsibility. May is the start of a study you’ll enjoy for years to come. Pisces and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 31 and 19.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: It’s not always the case, but traditional roles are best right now. Strong men will seek warm women. TAURUS: You can’t build a relationship with someone and compete with hat person at the same time. GEMINI: It’s never too late to get to know a person all over again. CANCER: When you give your compliments, you make them specific so the other person knows you’ve been paying close attention. LEO: You’ll appreciate the differences in the genders — it’s part of what makes the world interesting. VIRGO: Love and patience go together. Slowing down to another person’s pacing is an act of selfless devotion. LIBRA: Negativity is repellant, even if it’s clever. That’s why you go the other way – and your smile stands out. SCORPIO: It really is possible to create a new first impression, and it’s fun too. SAGITTARIUS: You know a good invitation when you hear it and you jump — you don’t have to be asked twice. CAPRICORN: You’ll feel better after you get some information out in the open. AQUARIUS: The one you’re thinking about is thinking about you too. PISCES: Nothing is completely Yin or Yang. Everything has a seed of the opposite in it.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Taurus Moon and Capricorn Sun highlight these two mutually adoring earth signs. Their attraction is instant and all encompassing. What’s hard is maintaining healthy boundaries and space between these magnetically charged signs. Also, both signs like to lead, which can be a problem. Taurus is wise to step down and let Capricorn take the reigns this weekend.
