The Gift of the Present

We are always moving forward, even when we’re not consciously aware of it — so why push ahead? Needing to push life into the future can be rob you of the moment, which is very hard to enjoy when you’re constantly thinking about changing it into something else. Mercury and Jupiter harmonize to bless us with presence of mind.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As the first sign of the zodiac, you are lucky when you follow through on an initial impulse. Beginning isn’t as hard for you as it is for many people. So get stared on something new today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve been told by those whose opinions matter to you a great deal that you have talent and should develop it. Today you’ll remember that encouragement as you practice your gift.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Are people judging you? Not really. They are judging a projection of you as they observe it, which has very little to do with the real you. Anyway, their assessments will mean very little when you cease to care.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). To attract friends and followers, answer the question: What’s in it for them? You’re an expert at putting yourself in other people’s shoes, so this shouldn’t be a problem for you now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Desire is a hijacker. It takes over and steers your journey. But hijackers can and often should be overcome. There’s no energy left for liking and appreciating what you have if you’re forever chasing a gleaming potential.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In order for your idea to catch on, it has to be remarkable, which quite literally means that it has to evoke a remark, hopefully one that bears repeating. You’ll strike on such an idea today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t let your high intelligence be a hindrance. Resist over-thinking into matters that are ultimately unsolvable or irrelevant. Stay on the lighter side today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The planning you do makes you realize that you don’t have time to fit it all in, in a calm, artful fashion. So instead of rushing around, you’ll eliminate a few of your responsibilities.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your high energy level allows for maximum creativity. Go for quantity. The more you can turn out, the more gems you’ll find later when you pick through the pile.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll experience the magic of low expectations. A situation or person that didn’t promise much will now surprise you with its many gifts and wonders.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In the days of cavemen and cavewomen, approval of the clan made a life or death difference. Things have changed. You can find your own tribe now, and you’ll use technology to do just that today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Slip into a different environment if you can. A pattern interrupt will be lucky for you. Go somewhere new for lunch, take a less used route or work in a different location.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 21). After the recent plateau of semi-charmed comforts, this new year of your life will be an adventure. You’ll take a risk before the month is over that sets the plot in motion. After a solo run to test the waters in February, you’ll join forces in March. Put your money on the table in May. You’ll take a bigger pile to the bank in July. Pisces and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 50, 21, 45 and 2.

AQUARIUS YEAR AT A GLANCE: JANUARY: Your role in your family structure is changing. You’ll understand how much loved ones need you and what you can do to help. FEBRUARY: Your guesses will be lucky and your decisions will earn praise and money. MARCH: Spending must be trimmed in order for you to meet your financial goals. APRIL: Make inspiring plans and goals to keep your daily life from withering with boredom. MAY: The eclipses on the 9th and 25th will have you shutting the door on an old scene. Endings are bittersweet, heavy on the sweet. JUNE: People will reveal themselves. You’ll change your tactics and goals. JULY: You’ll succeed! Then quickly move to a new goal. AUGUST: Jupiter and Pluto won’t let you forget that happiness doesn’t come from having what you want, it comes from wanting what you have. SEPTEMBER: Put self-critical voices to rest. Don’t get it perfect; just get it done. OCTOBER: Try and handle new business and short-term projects before Mercury’s retrograde on the 21st. NOVEMBER: Your views about what’s attainable will be different from those of a partner. DECEMBER: A surge of confidence will help you attract a winning team.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Indie musician Cat Power has been the subject of fascination in the world of music and fashion and her tumultuous life has even been chronicled in an unauthorized biography. But her stars, and her critics are starting to line up in agreement — this Aquarian is just hitting her stride. Rolling Stone and many others have included Power’s 2012 release “Sun” in their top favorite album lists for 2012.
