Sun and Moon Peace Conference

Find a way to reflect the spirit of tolerance as the Sagittarius moon of multiculturalism reminds you that you can love your own language and still dance enthusiastically to the music of different languages. The Aquarian sun shines a light on the multitude of the quest for a more peaceful and just state of humanity.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Regarding a work project: You’re going to have to pick up the pace if you want to finish in time. Realizing this now, instead of in the final hours, will put you in a more comfortable position.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Most people don’t like to be put on the spot and asked to perform for the acceptance and validation of others. The rare one who enjoys such challenges and attention will quickly gain fans. Today, that’s you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Pinch yourself awake if you have to. Automatic pilot.  Be aware of what others are asking you to do. More mistakes will be made in the name of obedience than in the name of rebellion.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Suddenly, it’s as though you are plopped into someone else’s movie. A quick look around and you’ll decide that your role is obvious. Whether it’s the bad guy, best friend or love interest, you’ll play it well.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Between friends, an issue has been nearly hashed out to death. No progress will be made on this. No one wins. Let go first, and the other person will follow suit. Sweet relief!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s a good thing you are a forgiving person because people will give you plenty to forgive today. There will also be the choice to reprimand, teach or fight. Forgiveness is the easiest route.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Lately life has been something of a cross-country desert highway — the same scenery mile after mile and it feels as though you’re going nowhere until suddenly, today, you arrive at an interesting destination.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Play it cool. Hold information back. Have better cards in your hands than the ones that you show. Keep treasures in storage. This you’ll do either because you are confident, or because you want to cultivate confidence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will need your “true or false” filter on for much of the afternoon as bluff-ridden conversations will be like a game to see who has the best powers of detection.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Giving yourself excellent advice is one thing. Taking your own advice is in the advanced realm of human behavior. So when you do this today, be sure to reward yourself in some way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It takes energy to decide, and today, you’d rather use your energy elsewhere. Wait until you feel moved to act, and you won’t have to decide a single thing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You could try to sort out the logistics of a problem, but likely everything will boil down to the basic nature of the people you have cast in the various roles of this work. Change your lineup and you’ll get better results.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 27). Your goals are fixed in your mind even when everything else in your world seems to be rapidly changing. Strut your stuff in February, as there are people who need said “stuff” in their lives and will reciprocate by giving you what you need, too. In June, romance unfolds in unpredictable ways. July brings a high honor. Leo and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 1, 43 and 6.


The Obvious: Virgo can grow things — plants, businesses, their own minds, the minds of others, strong relationships and so much more. Virgo has a knack for setting up the structures and organizing the efforts that will allow whatever they focus on to thrive.

The Uncanny: No matter how daunting other people may find a mess to be, Virgo can sweep into the disaster zone and clean it up lickity-split. Virgo doesn’t wait for anyone to ask for help either — this sign just knows how to get started, work fast and get it done.

The Weird: Virgo is secretly keeping track of where you put your germs. If you touch your hair, Virgo will note what you touch next. Heaven forbid you should lick your fingers before counting money or opening a plastic sack. Virgo sees this and imagines dancing germs traveling kick-line style to your next point of contact.

The Extremely Useful: Virgo hardly does anything that’s not extremely useful. Even this sign’s frivolously intended actions usually turn out in some way to have been completely necessary.

The Quietly Helpful: If your life is a mess, a Virgo can help you sort it out. You will be judged — that comes with the territory — but you will be better off for the help.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Patton Oswald is a busy Aquarian comic bouncing between several mediums in any given week. He’s the narrator of a television series, “The Goldbergs,” on movie screens in “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and appearing in comedy clubs and specials galore. Born when five planets, including the sun and Mercury, were in air signs, Oswald has an astrological nature grounded in sharp intellect and quit wit.
