Asteroid Spacecraft

Back in February, the asteroid 2012 DA14 got 17,100 miles from Earth and, as scientists predicted, kept right on going. The omens now suggest that the large rock wasn’t an asteroid at all, but a spaceship in disguise doing a fly-by to get a better idea of the ideal landing spot for the aliens to spread their message of… April Fool’s!

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You probably don’t want to spend a lot of time learning how to work a tool in order to do a job. You just want to do the job. And yet, taking the time to master your tools now will save you time in the end.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Many around you won’t share your mood, and you may find that quite all right. After all, can we really assume that being happy is better than all of the other emotional tones a person could be?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). How things change. You are in the process of fashioning a weird little family out of these people you once hardly knew — and perhaps weren’t even sure you wanted to know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If the choice is to join a group or go it alone, this is an excellent time to bond with a few diverse personalities. When one person is tired and ready to give up, another person will be up and ready to help.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The bigger your heart gets the less you feel the need to protect yourself. You learn that you can gather your strength from many sources instead of from the small, self-serving pool of the ego.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As the sign that rules natural growth, you know that everything takes time. For instance, after you plant a seed in the ground, you don’t dig it up every few hours to see how it’s doing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may have the urge to travel with a posse. There is strength in numbers, after all. But be careful, and use your judgment. If you bring too many people, you could actually be perceived as insecure.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll have the choice to play the hero, the villain or the helpless victim who needs saving. All three characters are necessary in drama. Lighten up, choose a role, and have some fun with it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The sparkle of charisma that keeps your phone buzzing today could be blamed on the moon in your sign, or possibly on your utterly unselfconscious way of dealing with people.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). On the other side of a realization is a ticket to ride the next train to the destination of your choice. But you must first have the realization. It’s how you pay the fare.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Expectations, your own and other people’s, have a way of changing your experience of reality. But you can always choose to see things differently than the way everyone around you sees them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your dual nature is fascinating to those around you. You can be many things at once. Even when you feel skeptical or afraid, there’s still a part of you that is bold and ready for whatever comes.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 1). You go into the year with great passion and are willing to perform self-sacrificing acts to keep relationships strong and love alive. Pull back a bit in May, though, to allow others to rise to the occasion of returning your affection. June brings a financial breakthrough, and in July, you’ll invest in an exciting new venture. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 24 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Libra who has been studying the topics of having a better relationship and family life and also finding happiness. My problem is that the books I’ve read suggest that to be happier in marriage, I have to change the way I look at things and behave. For instance, some suggestions are that I stop keeping score of what I do and what my husband does around the house, that I give him a better quality of my attention, etc. It’s absurd because I spend 10 times more hours on domestic work, and I work a full-time job. Shouldn’t I be getting angry instead of giving him more loving attention? And why is it always the woman who has to change? Isn’t there something fundamentally wrong with our society when married women are statistically less happy than single women and married men are statistically happier than single men? Or maybe I just should have married a Virgo.”

Interesting rant, dear Libra, and you make some excellent points. As the sign of the scales, keeping track is part of your basic nature. Happiness might be obtained by staying truer to your feelings. Keep track, get mad, and ask your husband to change for a change!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: WWE “Raw” wrestling champion and actor Randy Orton was advised by his family not to go into professional wrestling, and they were speaking from experience: His father, grandfather and uncle were all wrestling pros. But the Aries warrior energy ran too deep for this champion to resist his calling. With Mars in Leo, the business of entertainment also comes as a natural fit.
